War Zone: Fenris Part II has a new teaser – The Wrath of Magnus is heading your way!

Holy Smokes! Games Workshop has a brand new teaser for the Wrath of Magnus and it’s looking pretty grim for the Space Wolves!

via Warhammer TV

Things are looking pretty dire for the heroes of Fenris…

For story so far, check out War Zone: Fenris Part 1 – Curse of the Wulfen , which covers the war’s opening gambits.

Then, in Robbie MacNiven’s 8-part short story compilation War Zone: Fenris – Legacy of Russ the war escalates even further, bringing us right up to the start of Wrath of Magnus.

There are lots of goodies hiding in the teaser – it looks like The Thousand Sons are getting some brand new toys…

wrath-of-magnus-2

Ahriman is back and he’s on a disc…

wrath-of-magnus-3

That’s him – you can tell because of the helmet!

wrath-of-magnus-4

It also sounds like Ahriman and Magnus have patched things up over the last 10,000 years as he addresses them as “all my sons.”

wrath-of-magnus-5

Uh oh…are those Rubric Terminators?

wrath-of-magnus-6

Whoa! That’s a standard Rubric Marine packing some heat!

wrath-of-magnus-7

And they are getting some Tzaangor reinforcements, too!

wrath-of-magnus-8

Yeah, it’s not looking good for the Sons of Russ…

 

It seems like in just over a week we’ll be seeing the Wrath of Magnus – I’m guessing that’s when the pre-orders will go up. We already know there is a new Magnus model on the way and it looks like we’re going to be seeing at least 3 other new units – Plastic Rubric Marines, Terminators and some new Tzaangors!

Ahriman is on a Disc as well – maybe there is a new model for him on the way also? Games Workshop did show quite a few sorcerers flying around on discs also – maybe another combo kit? I guess we’ll find out soon enough when the Wrath of Magnus pours out on Fenris!

 

Vengeance for Prospero comes for the Space Wolves…

  • SilentPony

    Then Russ shows up, smacks Magnus on the nose with a rolled up newspaper, the Dark Angels pimp off, the Grey Knights tell the Wolves “Oi, watch it you!”, and then Russ howls. And the Wolves howl back.

    And then GW retcons it because it was simply too exciting.

    • normann97

      GW already told us, Russ won’t be coming back for this.
      Sorry to ruin it.

      • Walter Vining

        when did they say that?

        • SilentPony

          Rumors are flying like bullets at D-Day when it comes to GW. My local manager maintains he was told after the Fenris saga is done, there’s gonna be another multibook narrative with Lorgar and the Lion fighting over the Rock.

          • Walter Vining

            oh ok so nothing solid that anyone knows. awesome. (I know managers that consistently say they aren’t told anything like that, but who knows who cares things change)

      • crcovar

        That would raise a whole lot of questions about Legacy of Russ.

        If Warzone Fenris doesn’t meet the prophecy of return when Russ left, I’d be really curious to see what they come up with when it happens.

    “..and so began tha age of tha emprah. – and that’s why your father hung himself in the barn, Billy”

  • Horacio Rivas

    yeah ok cool… I want sisters 🙂

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      Sisters are coming in 8th edition, next year.

      • SilentPony

        *Rumored*

        • When is a rumor, GW already confirmed they’re coming in the Magnus video

          • SilentPony

            No, teased. A dude just says “Oh, plastic sisters of battle.”
            No models are shown, no release date, no pictures, no codex, no nothin’ and the entire video is tongue-in-cheek and laughable.

            Besides which, plastic Sisters have been ‘confirmed’ for almost a decade now.

          • It’s not “confirmed” by anonymous rumor mongers, it’s confirmed by GW. The tongue and cheek aspect of the video is them winking at confirming a bunch of rumors “by accident”

          • SilentPony

            Like they’ve done a bunch of times in the past. Hell, they’ve even said they were working on recasting the Sisters nearly 7 years ago.
            Wasn’t plastic Sisters your favorite 6th edition army? Sure was mine.

          • Karru

            Would you kindly show the official video/source for this one? I would really like to know when it was said. I have only heard unconfirmed, anonymous “insider” rumours regarding Sister releases until GW released their own video where they revealed Thousand Sons and Magnus.

          • SilentPony

            That’s kinda’ the point. The rumor, both implied and non-debunked, have had Battle Sisters be the next army since I started my Wolves in 2001. And it never amounts to anything.

            Hell I even went to Games Day Chicago in 06 where I was told Battle Sisters were “on their way”.

            So them saying “Oh look, Battle Sisters in this trash can, totes for realz!” is less a confirmation and more like Gabin dropping the number 3 way too many times in a speech. Its practically mocking at this point.

          • Karru

            Yes, but this was the FIRST documented official “rumour” from GW regarding Sisters. I have heard these comments as well from people saying that they heard someone from GW saying “Sisters are coming” in every event they are attending. Once again, these are not documented, so I have to take someone’s word for it. This is up on their Youtube channel, GW is currently giving us even more rumours on their community site, if you seriously still remain so gosh darn sceptical, I can’t help you.

          • Burf

            There’s a difference between skepticism and cynicism. The number of rumors that have all indicated the same thing, combined with GW’s own tease, combined with this video confirming large parts of another rumor people were skeptical about that included sisters means we can be cautiously optimistic now.

          • Muninwing

            i was told over a decade ago when i was a redshirt that…

            – that dark eldar were next (they were not, and did not get a new book for another five years or so) and would be adapted a bit better for fourth ed

            – that daemons might be taken out of the CSM book, but they would be in a “Demon Worlds” supplement and useable together (they became a separate army, and the generic daemons that CSM got were so terrible they just phased out)

            – that the new DA codex was the new model of streamlined and simplified unit choice that each codex would then follow (that lasted no time at all, and hampered the DA throughout 5th ed)

            – that the Sisters would get a new codex SOON and be a great army to play in 4th, with new roles and expanded mechanics to be a unique army in the game

            i have never been able to decide if i thought that they were deliberately spreading misinformation, or if they were just changing their mind so often that their creation process resembled buying all the ingredients to make a quiche and deciding on an omelet instead…

          • Arthfael

            They never said it on any official channel though at the time.

          • Aezeal

            No they are not.. it’s a stupid army in my opinion and I cannot see what anyone likes about them. About all other Imperial factions appeal more to me (all 1000+ of them). They rate quite a bit above Tau though.

        • Burf

          Considering one of the rumors that talked about sisters of battle also talked about everything that was showcased in this teaser including 40k tzaangors…feelin’ preeeeety confident right now.

    • eehaze

      I want a pony!

  • Muninwing

    thousand son rubric marine toting an assault cannon?

    please be an indicator of revitalizing the army…

    • grendal1989

      Maybe it’ll be an assault cannon…wit SOUL BLAZE

      • Red_Five_Standing_By

        Please no. Soulblaze is just a lot of homework.

        • Wa Bell

          It’ll be some special 1KSons thingie +15pts with 18″ S5 AP4 Heavy 1 + SOULBLAZE

      • yergerjo

        Does anybody ever remember to use soul blaze?

        • Red_Five_Standing_By

          Literally no one remembers until 3 turns later.

        • Muninwing

          nope.

          it’s too bad… as a rule it is a fun idea. but it just does not work.

        • Karru

          I have never used it, nor have I ever seen it being used.

          • Wa Bell

            It would be better if it took away FNP

          • Karru

            It would have be better if it did any damage and wasn’t extremely cumbersome to use and hard to remember.

          • Wa Bell

            My money’s on SOULBLAZE (LOLZ) and causes hatred or fear.

      • Karru

        Remember that it has to pay at least 20pts for that over normal assault cannon. If we are lucky, that’s all and they won’t make it something like Heavy 2 or Strength 5 as well. This has the insane possibility that they might have a weapon that is better or equal than SM equivalent.

        • grendal1989

          TBH, I am cautiously optimistic on this update.

          • Karru

            There is one thing that will make or break this codex. Will this do the KDK? Will they use CSM prices and stats for the Thousand Sons units or will they make them their own stats and prices.

        • Muninwing

          it’s not unlike how the GK get the same weapons with either higher strength or lower cost…

          and GW wonders why their fans are more or less constantly annoyed by balance issues…

      • eehaze

        AP3 Assault Cannon?

    • Looks more like a hades autocannon

      • Karru

        Definitely not Hades Autocannon. Hades Autocannon looks more like a High Calibre Minigun, this one has the Assault Cannon barrel.

        • This is much bigger than an assault cannon, plus CSM don’t have access to them, but they do have hades autocannons

          • Karru

            I’m going to say two words, you can go ahead and look at the exact rule. “Obliterator Weapons”.

          • Yeah, not persuasive in the least

          • Karru

            Obliterators having Assault Cannons does not count as “CSM not having access to Assault Cannons”?

            Also, compare the size of current Hades Autocannons and then look at Assault Cannons. That is clearly the size of an Assault Cannon. Then there is the lore tidbit regarding Hades, “as the weapon is far too large for most smaller vehicles to carry and operate to its full capacity”. You think that if a “small vehicle” cannot operate it, you think a lowly automaton marine can?

          • Obliterators don’t have equipment, the obliterator virus allows them to absorb and reuse weapons from the battlefield. It’s not relevant at all.

          • Karru

            To not have access to Assault Cannons would mean there is no such thing in the book. For example, Imperial Guard does not have access to Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields, since they are absent from the book. Obliterators have Assault Cannons, they are in the CSM book, thus they have access to Assault Cannons. I’m also talking from the rule perspective here, not lore.

          • No, because they don’t have assault cannons, they have “Obliterator Weapons” which can fire as assault cannons, you’re being intentionally dense

          • Karru

            The rule CLEARLY STATES that they must fire a WEAPON FROM THE LIST. There is no such stat entry as a Oblitetor Weapon in the book. They are equipped with the weapons that are listed under the Obliterator Weapon SPECIAL RULE. It’s not a weapon, it’s a special rule. You are the one who is intentionally dense.

            Of course, there is that extremely impossible chance that your book has a misprint in it that makes the Obliterator Weapons listed as one of their Wargear and not their Special Rule. If that is the case, I would like to have a picture of it.

          • No

          • Karru

            Yes

          • Red_Five_Standing_By

            This is a Thousand Sons codex, not a Chaos Marine one.

            Also, they clearly had Assault Cannons in the heresy. The only reason they don’t have them in the 41st millennium is because GW is arbitrary.

          • Which makes them even less likely. There were no man portable assault cannons in 30k

          • Karru
          • Possible, but less likely due to the massive size

          • Karru

            How do you get “massive” from that? The barrel is slightly larger than those are. The Hades Autocannon is at least twice the size of that thing. Go take a quick look at the Forge Fiend. That thing wields the Hades. That gun is the size of a Marine. The one in the picture seems larger for two reasons, angle and all those “ornaments” on the ammo box/firing mechanism thingy.

          • And the hades on the heldrake is a good bit smaller than the one on the FF

          • Karru

            Okay. Now go look at the design of the Hades Assault Cannon. It does not match this one at all. I’m just going to post them here for quicknesses sake.

            Heldrake:

            http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/warhammer40k/images/0/02/Heldrake05.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/640?cb=20130321060127

            Forge Fiend:
            http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/warhammer40k/images/b/b3/HadesAutocannon01.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20130321231354

            Now tell me if the TH gun looks more like this than the Assault Cannon/Rotor Cannon.

          • I have both sitting in front of me, I’m well aware of what they look like

          • Karl Guillermo Vela

            I am getting too much enjoyment out of this exchange. Like sitting next to an arguing couple in a mall food court. Shame they don’t allow commenting on Warhammer Community…

          • CPENinja

            I seriously just wanted them to either start throwing punches or make out.

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

            Or throw punches and then make out…

          • grendal1989

            Not so, the Blood Angels had them for sure(aka its their 30k special wargear option). Also, we have the Kheres.

    • BigGrim

      Rotor Cannon I reckon.

      • Muninwing

        honestly, i don’t care provided it’s not a generic bolter… they need options.

        • BigGrim

          I hear that!

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      Probably just one of those dreadful rotary guns from 30k no-one uses…

    • DaveTycho

      Assault cannons make everything better

  • James Tompsett

    Talk’s a good fight.

  • Red_Five_Standing_By
  • Deacon Ix

    Squeeeee!

  • yergerjo

    Maybe Sorcerer Cabal (squads) as Elites?

  • Well I’m fudged Hahahaha pity I’ve gotta wait 4weeks for the Christmas bonus, gonna be so difficult waiting

  • jasonsation

    I wonder if tzaangors and all the retro stuff means we’ll see the return of Beastmen to IG. I’d love that.

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      The Genestealer Cult has already paved the way for this. 🙂

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      Khorne beastmen fought at Vraks. I was always sad FW never made a model. Victoria Miniatures do good beastmen though.

  • generalchaos34

    So I just noticed, does that Rubric terminator have Tartaros pattern shoulder pads?

  • Nyyppä

    That looks great. Still I have zero confidence that they will make all those new things shown in the video available in the game and if by some miracle they do they will not be worth the points.

    • They haven’t been doing art for minis they haven’t sculpted in years

      • Nyyppä

        It’s CSM. The spit pot of GW. Anything is possible.

        • Ah yes, I’m sure the company is changing IP policy that protects their property just to spite whiney internet commenters, that’s the ticket

          • Nyyppä

            Great straw man. Good for you. Kudos!

            I think it was FTN episode somethingortheother that first pointed out that the game is better when CSM is good. It’s true. The worse than average factions need to be threatening. No story of a hero never started with “they came and he/she pimp(cron) slapped them to oblivion like they were nothing” like, you know, the balance of the game is at the moment. It’s hard to make epic battles happen when the “bad guys” are so wimpy that the “good guys” can just forget to bring half of their stuff and still effortlessly win.

          • I’m not sure you know what a straw man is…

          • Nyyppä

            I’m not going to go there. You are far too emotionally invested in your idea of what’s what that you can not see it even if I break it down for you.

          • I’m not emotionally invested at all, I just pay attention to GW corporate policy, ever since they got embarrassed by their lack of knowledge of US copyright law in the chapterhouse case. They don’t do art for models they don’t make, it’s for very practical reasons

          • Nyyppä

            Yes you are. You twisted my words and denied doing that. People who are not emotionally invested in something do not broadcast their emotions like you do.

            Again, it’s CSM. GW and CSM are like an insanely abusive parent and an abused child. It’s not beyong GW to continue their over decade old and still strong resentful ways.

          • I think you’re confused, you are the one who is emotionally invested, i didn’t twist your words at all, you think GW resents CSM players, which makes no sense whatsoever

          • Nyyppä

            Now you’re just trolling.

            I said nothing about CSM players and GW’s relationship with them. Look how you again twisted my words to for that basic straw man argument.

          • “It’s CSM. The spit pot of GW. Anything is possible.”

            “Again, it’s CSM. GW and CSM are like an insanely abusive parent and an abused child. It’s not beyong GW to continue their over decade old and still strong resentful ways.”

            “I said nothing about CSM players and GW’s relationship with them. Look how you again twisted my words to for that basic straw man argument.”

          • Nyyppä

            A fact: CSM =/= CSM players.

          • And within 12 hours we now have leaks of every model teased in this video…

          • Nyyppä

            So you guessed right. Are you expecting a medal of some sort or….?

            Anyway, unless they can effectively go against the broken stuff in the game there is still no reason to buy the models for 95+% of the people who normally would spend money on them.

          • No, it wasn’t a guess, they don’t do art for minis they haven’t produced anymore

          • Nyyppä

            Have never done, right?

        • Burf

          Inquisition, Tyranids, Orks, and Sisters of Battle would all like to have a word with you mister ‘Cyclopian Cabal’

          • Karru

            If I was given the option between not getting an update when it comes to CSM, I would take it any day of the week. I would love to play 3.5 CSM codex instead of the garbage we have now. The Cyclopian Cabal is only good because you can run it with Daemon allies. If you are running it alongside pure CSM army, it’s mostly useless.

            Inquisition being the spit pot of GW? Really? Have you heard of this guy called Coteaz? How about Servo Skulls?

            Sisters of Battle I do agree with. Tyranids are on the edge, but at least they have Flyrants and nice model releases. Orks are not nearly as bad as CSM. As someone who plays Orks and used to play CSM, Orks are definitely not that bad.

          • Nyyppä

            Sub faction, better than CSM (I know, I play them and CSM is a joke to play against with nids), another codex that just roflstomps CSM and another sub faction.

            The fact that CSM players have a codex and 3 supplements that together yield exactly one thing that is not utterly useless should tell you something. Inquisition has 2 ok things (Coteaz and servo skulls). Orks have some more. The sisters have a common usr that is infinitely better than anything available to CSM.

            So yes, the CSM is the spit pot of the design team employed by GW. As much as I dislike the codex flyrant I would simply hate to be a CSM player.

          • Burf

            Ah yes, I forgot CSM is the specialist little snowflake and that only they get to ignore the good things in their codex in favor of the bad things. Sisters 1 USR is CLEARLY enough to make up for the fact that they have NO plastic models anymore and it’s not like CSM have a handful of good spammable things that can win games. I mean it’s not like they have Heldrakes, spawn(oddly enough), many different formations, with at least 1 SUPER busted one, or an entire month of releases and Demon Primarch dedicated to them. That wouldn’t fit the CSMs IS DA WORSTEST narrative! The truth is, overall, Dark Eldar ARE in a worse place than you, Sisters ARE in a worse place than you, Tyranids, Blood Angels, and Grey Knights are in the SAME place as you(The entire Grey knights codex is only used in the exact same way the Cabal is.). This here is why I lost all interest in ever playing Chaos, it’s not the crappy codex that bothers me, it’s the crappy players.

          • Nyyppä

            “A good THING.” Not “good things”. Nids have 2, mucolids and flyrants with double devourers (possibly crubs). Nids have “good things”.

            The sister USR is better than all of the CSM USRs excluding the cabals extra things….which are not USRs. Not “enough”, just “better than”.

            If the upcoming releases follow the same pattern the TH and other supplements did there’s nothing to be glad about them rules wise. They can push a unit per day for CSM and as long as none of it is viable to the point of making it possible to field varied lists with a chance to win it’s as none of it ever happened. Imagine 10 years of montly iterations of pyrovore that made it in no way more viable. As a nid player I would not give a flying….you get the point.

          • Karru

            I would like to have a civil argument about this, because I’m disagreeing hard with you on most things. So when you answer to me, try to dial down from Nyyppä’s comments. I will avoid being as “whiny” as he is, in my tone of writing.

            Sisters do need a release very badly. More than any other army in the game right now. This is the truth and a fact that no one can argue. Now then, to make this clear, we are talking about CSM, not Daemons or KDK, just Codex: CSM and their Supplement, Crimson Slaughter, Black Legion and Traitor’s Hate. I will go trough this one first from the pure, solo codex standpoint and then move on to allies.

            First up, Heldrake was nerfed hard with the FAQ change, where it lost the rotation of the Baleflamer. Spawns are still nice, but they aren’t exactly game breakers. Most of the formations for CSM are very, very bad and not that smart to use. Most of them have very taxing units, like Warpsmiths and Possessed. The RNG Boon Table isn’t exactly powerful either and the Detachment benefit only gives that while the formation gives that as well as Objective Secured, but you are forced to take mostly extremely expensive and bad CSM units. Only “good” units in the CSM book are Nurgle Daemon Princes with wings and the Black Mace, Nurgle Lords with the Burning Brand + Bike, Spawns, Heldrakes, Plague Marines, Chaos Bikes and Obliterators.

            Dark Eldar are in a bad spot, but I wouldn’t say they have it worse then CSM when you look at everything they have access to. As a single codex, it is equal to the CSM codex in terms of uselessness, but it’s definitely not worse.

            Blood Angels are definitely not in the same place as CSM since they are Space Marines. They have ATSKNF, Grav Weapons and Drop Pods as well as Sternguard. These are better than 90% of the CSM codex. If looked as a whole, Grey Knights are also not in the same place as CSM and even as a single codex they are better. Their weaponry is still very effective and “cheap”. Tyranids have about the same number of spammable units than CSM has in terms of effectiveness. Flyrants and Tervigons. These guys are also in the same boat as CSM when viewed from the perspective of a single codex, slightly better with Genestealer Cult now being allies with them, which is nice.

            I would also like to point out something I forgot. All of these “single codex compared to multiple sources” means that they are the primary source for the army. For example, CSM as the primary army and Daemons as Allies for example.

            Now, from the perspective of multiple sources. Dark Eldar are definitely not CSM levels of bad. They have Eldar to ally with and can make a mean list with Corsairs while still keeping up the Dark Eldar feel and play style. They also have the pretty useful Haemonculus Coven formation(?) that pretty much everyone uses. I’m not that familiar with Dark Eldar, so I don’t remember the exact names.

            Any imperial army is not comparable to CSM in terms of bad. They have the entire Imperial arsenal to use. Space Marines, Imperial Knights, Adeptus Mechanicus. These are all usable by every single Imperial army without problems since they are Battle Brothers.

            Chaos can ally with Daemons and KDK. You don’t see this, because CSM codex is bad. You see it the other way around. Daemons and KDK ally with CSM a lot. This is thanks to the Cabal and nothing else. Only units that you see from the CSM codex being used is the Cultist and the Cabal. Everything else is taken from the KDK book or Daemons.

            Overall, CSM is in either slightly worse position or quite a bit worse than those you listed, outside Sisters. You could argue that RULE-WISE Sisters aren’t as bad since they are Imperials, but the fact that they don’t really have a Codex and their entire line is older than the universe and in metal trumps everything.

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      Can’t guarantee rules quality but everything pictured will likely be in the Thousand Sons codex.

        One can only hope.

      • Yep. Its the same style they had for the Genestealer Cults teaser, and look how that turned out. I believe the Codex actually has more than they showed in the video then, even.

    • ReverendTiberiusJackhammer

      Nope. Those are based on upcoming models.

      • Nyyppä

        Is that a fact and if it is how can I verify this information?

        • ReverendTiberiusJackhammer

          All evidence points to yes. No evidence supporting no. I’ll go over the exact details later, if you’d like, but I’m not sure if that’ll override your bitterness.

          • Nyyppä

            I’ll give you 10 years of GW making CSM the punching bag for the rest of the game. There’s a lot more evidence against CSM related stuff being in any way sensible that the one instance GW has done something right (GSC) since the release of 6th edition. Of course the models have leaked now so we know that there’s at least something coming. The rules are still more than likely epicly lackluster.

            There is no bitterness here. The fact is that either GW hates CSM with passion or just lacks the needed understanding to make CSM what it is supposed to be. Chronologically the last piece of evidence of this is the Traitor’s Hate, which had nothing viable, even compared to Angels Blade which was not exactly spectacular either compared to vanilla marines, DA, Eldar or even Tau. To me CSM is a joke and I play nids.

        • ReverendTiberiusJackhammer

          Seems a bit redundant now that we’ve seen the models, but;
          a) As mentioned by others, Games-Workshop now typically avoids creating artwork focusing on units that they don’t produce models for.
          b) Past releases (especially Genestealer Cults) have mirrored this advertising – and all highlighted models in those vids were released.
          c) This video is, fundamentally, an advertising tool for the Warzone Fenris series. When making this ad, do you really think the hired artist would be instructed to “make several pieces of artwork focusing on these upcoming related kits” or “hey, make up some random Thousand Sons stuff that doesn’t represent the models we’re selling.”?

          • Nyyppä

            Counter point: It’s CSM. The one faction GW has gone out of their way to make useless. “My” faction is useless because GW had no idea of what works in the games in terms of game mechanics. CSM fans are the only group GW deliberately bullies with sub par releases that are then nerfed later with erratas.

            Based on that it’s a freaking miracle that CSM gets new models….unless they are ridiculously expensive in real money.

          • ReverendTiberiusJackhammer

            I too am primarily a Chaos player, and I agree that Chaos has typically received disappointing treatment, but watching a Warzone: Fenris promotional vid that heavily focuses on new Chaos units, then saying “Well, Chaos often receives lackluster treatment, so the new units in that obvious hype-machine probably won’t be released.” just isn’t sound logic, even if we ignored the bevy of evidence in support of the releases.

            (Also, “GW deliberately bullies” Chaos players is a bit over the top.)

          • Nyyppä

            Chaos is not lacking. Daemons are fine, though outdated. CSM are the problem.

    • Daniel Hall

      Actually everything in recent GW videos has been in all of their releases as models. kinda a theme for them.

      • Nyyppä

        I know. Still not convinced.

        • happy_inquisitor

          Shrug.

          Time will tell. The rest of us can see that this is pretty much just how GW are operating at the moment. I really can’t see why they would change their whole approach just to annoy you.

          • Nyyppä

            To annoy me? This touches me in no way. Why would I be annoyed by them failing?

  • Emperor’s Champion

    Step aside simpletons of Khorne this is a job for the God who wields the power of the warp in its most pure form.

  • Sam Nolton

    I’m starting to think GW re-tools a lot of molds recently. Not just for dual-kits but for entirely new releases as well. If those Tzaangor sculpts are almost identical to the AoS Silver Tower ones, but with 40k weapons…

    • The Rout

      Makes sense and would help keep up the release schedule we’ve enjoyed lately

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      With digital CAD, it is easy to copy/paste the same model into a new sprue.

  • frank

    that would be cool if they actually bring beastmen back into 40k. Wish they hadn’t abandoned the idea that their are beastmen loyalists though. I think some self hating zealots with horns and hooves would be cool in the empire as well.

    • generalchaos34

      well it does fit in well with Tzeench though being the lord of change follwed by a bunch of mutants.

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    I feel like this is going to lead to every Primarch and Demon Primarch being called back or Found or woken up (or what have you) to come fight in a massive war for the survival of Terra.

    I had a dream the other day that the Sanguinor and Abandon were fighting one another in front of the Golden Throne in some sort of weird perversion of the battled between Horus, the Emperor and Sanguinius.

    • ZeeLobby

      Pretty cool. They’re both pretty meh on the table as well, so it might be a good fight :D.

    • Wa Bell

      I thought Angron still had 400 or so years left after the Grey Knights sent him back at Armageddon.

  • ZeeLobby

    Excited for the minis. Who cares about the rules when they’ll all be useless when 8th drops. At least I hope this isn’t another example of pre-edition codex dropping that somehow tries to get rolled in but sucks horribly (please please please)

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      I am pretty sure all codexes will be invalidated for 8th. .

      • ZeeLobby

        I hope so. Definitely cuts back on my spending pre-drop, but I’ve been caught on the coat tails of an old edition too many times before.

        • Muninwing

          i’m actually hoping that they use the entries as-is for units, but change the points costs.

          that right there would change the effectiveness of the game drastically for the better. and then the books are still useful

          • Nyyppä

            If done right (which is not going to happen) that would solve many issues.

          • My expectation is that the models will be killer but the rules will continue to be meh. My hope is that they are at least a step up and instead of grotesquely overpriced, they become merely overpriced but capable of not getting tabled until turn 5 or so as opposed to turn 3.

    • Karru

      I’d like them to release as many books as possible before 8th drops. They would give me a nice base to work with when I play 5th edition with my friends if the planned 8th edition simplifications comes into effect that will most likely remove most of the stats from the game.

  • georgelabour

    Beastmen imperial guard are returning?!?! One can only hope eh?

    Also let’s hope that one Iron Hands chaps gets set on fire, shot out an airlock into another airlock, and then set on fire again before being blasted back into space.

    Repeatedly.

  • Pro:Truly stoked about the fact that the demon primarchs will be making a return, ESP. Angron for my KDK/World Eaters, added to that, new 1K sons options etc. Con:Right after this, GW will take the usual piss on all CSM players and release Russ and wolf stuff thatll kick the smile of any CSM players face once again, just like any other CSM release.

    • Burf

      That’s a good thing right? I mean, chaos players only real method of communication is whining about how woebegone they are. If CSM get good rules you’d all have to go back to a combination of grunting and making woman feel uncomfortable..

  • I think Russ is finally going to return…wielding a bolt gun that fires wolves and a wolf axe made from wolves…riding a wolf chariot mounted on the back of a wolf!

    • I hope the Thousand Son releases don’t get over shadowed by extra Space Wolf releases.

  • Kaylum Dicks

    Is that a Silver Tower at the 10 second mark?

    • Karru

      I don’t think so, it looks more like your typical Thousand Son architecture than the Silver Tower.

  • James Ellams

    I’d love it if the wolves got absolutely obliterated

  • My soul is ready. Oh so ready.

  • Christie Bryden

    OH SWEET YES

  • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

    That video is bloody cool. My poor wallet. Need to sell something….

  • Bulvi Nightbane

    Since we already know that Ragnar and his great company will be fighting on Cadia during the 13th Black Crusade courtesy of the new BL novel, things won’t go too badly for the Sons of Russ.

  • Dalcor

    Unfortuantely, GW wants more to sell doggies then sorcies, so the Thousand Sons Fail again. At least I hope Magnus will not be defeated by bloody Dreadnaught…

  • Emdee

    This is what happened to me when I saw this…..

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOsHoqhbUIU

  • BartTP

    Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, I’m so exited! Which is kinda strange, since I don’t play chaos or wolves for that matter.

  • zeno666

    Tzaangor? … Really? omg

  • CF

    Isn’t there an option for Tzeentch Warlords to select a Disc as a mount? It fits and would be cool for a unit of sorcs flying around on the.

  • Diagoras

    Magnus’ vision is simply too beautiful for words… My puny mind cannot fathom the glory of what this trailer promises; tzangors with chainswords and bolters, Rubric Marines with assault cannons (or equivalent), Rubric Terminators with Tartarus or Cataphractii armor, Thousand Sons Sorcerers on Discs…

    By the Tzeentch, if only half of these are true, I will be a happy, happy sorcerer. It’s enough to make a grown man cry tears of dust.

  • Mathew G. Smith

    So we all realize this ends with Magus getting a spear in the eye, right? Just like every other time he sticks his head out of the Warp.

  • DaveTycho

    The saga ends… for the wolves! Heh heh heh heh!

  • DaveTycho
  • Dan Wilson

    http://m.imgur.com/a/wjrf5 You’re welcome. Clean up after yourselves.

    • Erber

      Oh my xD that was quick

    • Dexter Kingsford

      I was so excited that there is now a hole in my ceiling.

  • Hell-Nico

    Here we go bois !
    It begin, the End of Time is rolling on 40K and we all know how it turned out for WHF….

  • Kevin Maloney

    Is it wrong that I’m cheering for the Thousand Sons in this one? I mean, I always thought that if anyone deserved to feel angry at the Imperium, it was them.

  • MechBattler

    It seems they really are finally advancing the story of 40k into the final battle. Never thought this day would come. I guess the unexpected success of AoS is spurring them into it.
