The eBay seller had this to say in the description:

“tychun04

30k Heresy : leaked Ahzek Ahriman

Fedex shipping to every country

If you want to find out this is real, let me show you the recent picture of product”

I’d like to point out that this sprue is available for purchase on eBay. The seller has the bid currently set to $99, is charging $20 for shipping and is located in South Korea:

I mention the location because that somewhat explains the $20 shipping. So if you’d like to start the bidding for this item at basically $119 more power to you. As for me, I think I’ll wait until whatever box this sprue comes in arrives on shelves.

Aside from that, this is very clearly a Thousand Sons Sorcerer – it also appears to have a second chest piece on the sprue:

Still, this model has a ton of 30k Era doodads to go along with it. “Modern” Thousand Sons don’t come with that many scarab icons and the curved “Khopesh” style staff is a dead give away.This looks like another fantastic job from the GW team chopping up this model for the sprue – the cuts are going to hide the seems really well.

The Seller says this is Ahzek Ahriman – It totally could be! Then again, it could just be another character/generic Chaos Sorcerer. That’s not what the rumor mill is point toward however.

 

Looks like the Battle for Prospero is happening. What do you think of this new sprue?

  • Joe Ketterer

    Looks like a dead Space Wolf he’s stepping on for the base, as opposed to a second torso option.

    • Deez

      I second your statement.

    • Yeah mirrors the dead 1K Son on the Thunderwolf base. Defo a SW it has a mkII/III head, the 1K Son is Mk IV based.

    • amaximus167

      my thought as well

    • Emdee

      Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about. Yes that’s a SW in mark III it looks like. Notice the diamond shaped stone in the chest….hahah. About time!

  • Mandragola

    It looks to me like it’s stood on some of a space wolf, who is/was wearing mkiii armour. That’s not the chest piece of another model, it has a flat back for gluing to a base. So I’d guess this is a model from the sequel to betrayal at Calth. Which is awesome as it seems to confirm the rumours we’ve heard that this is on the way, maybe soon.

    Whether that’s Ahriman or some generic sorceror, or indeed a different named one, is impossible to say. It doesn’t look much like his 40k figure.

    • Mike Siegmund

      The armor is 30k chapter symbols are the sun not the snake as is the head ornaments

  • Graham Roden

    I agree, looks like a piece for the base. Definitely cool though.

  • Matthew Hast

    Looking at Ahirman pic in the history section of the warhammer wiki from his time in 30k, looks about spot on for this model

  • Ravenmonk

    I think this could be a character from the rumoured thousand son/space wolf heresy era box set

  • Horus84cmd

    Now it openly flying around the interwebs, I give 24hrs for GW legal to step in a shut the sale down.

    • Ian Dangerzone

      There’s no way an ebay seller is getting arrested in south korea over a civil issue filed by a British company.

  • OldHat

    Prospero B@C sequel basically confirmed now?

    • Brian Griffith

      Heck, I think Sad Panda might have specifically predicted plastic 30k Ahriman, now that I look.

  • shiwan

    Moar Heresy. Can not complain.

  • Horus84cmd

    Looks like it’s forced GW hand a little. A short 30s video has gone on FB……..but it shows off something a little different….

      Link don’t work

      • Horus84cmd

        Whoops Incorrect Ctl+C Ctl+V. My BoLS-Foo is not that strong.

        Should work now.

  • Xodis

    This looks pretty awesome.

  • georgelabour

    Wasn’t there rumor of a prospero themed boxed set ala BAttle of Calth? IIRC that was supposed to feature space wolves in mkIII armor, and Thousand sons…

  • Victor Hartmann

    Moar space marines?!?!?! Aaarrrgh!

    Just kidding, looks like a cool model. Hoping for more awesome new Thousand Sun updates

  • D. B.

    Dayum, first Deathwatch, then Eldrad, followed by Khârn, and now this guy… It’s a great time to be in the hobby, folks.

    • JP

      As long as you bleed liquid gold that is.

  • Mike Linke

    I don’t think he’s actually selling the model. I think he’s using the auction so there is Ana accessible place to view the image that won’t get taken down quickly.

  • Agent OfBolas

    Great miniature but CSMs are so ultra bad I can’t find a single reason to buy it.
