According to GW, the leader of Commorragh is most unhappy with current events.

“Vect isn’t happy at all, and you know what happened to the last guy that upset Vect.


No, nor do we… ”

“Ynnead is a myth, nothing more. Speak no more to me of your delusions. What fool would plan to defeat their enemy by dying forever themselves?”

~Asdrubael Vect

~I’ll let you all figure out that could mean…

  • Defenestratus

    Return of Vect?

    • Zingbaby

      No, this means we’re getting a PLLAStic Thunderhawk!!!

      • Defenestratus

        Oh of course – how could I be so stupid!

        • Drew_Da_Destroya

          Half Life 3 confirmed!

          • kloosterboer

            The cake, it is a lie.

          • Jared van Kell

            Hush now, the cake is not a lie. It is moist and delicious.

      • Shrew Perman

        To be fair, it’s about time the Marines got something. Orks and Sisters are swamped with releases.

        • petrow84

          I long to see the first looted Thunderhawk.

        • Dennis J. Pechavar

          I hear you, my Orks cost me so much cash. I wish that they would do something for Imperials for once. Good Lord I have alot of plastic Sisters and could use some updates for my marines.

      Conspiracy Theory – Vect Edition: “Ynnead was an inside job, soul fuel can’t melt chaos beams!”

      “Razorwings’ chaos trails poison our minds with Slaanesh virus!”

    • David Leimbach

      Orks wearing monocles.

      • Jabberwokk

        And top hats.

    • Nightwalker
      • Mitchell

        Forgeworld sculpts are looking far superior still…kindof dissapointed from this angle

        • Nightwalker

          Unfortunately Forgeworld doesn’t do cypher or Draigo 🙁

          • Dennis J. Pechavar

            Cypher will be amazing! Why Draigo?

          • Nightwalker

            Those are the two other models next to the Primarch 😉

          • Dennis J. Pechavar

            Ahh thank the Lord that it’s not Draigo but some other chap.

          • Mitchell


      • Muninwing

        why is nobody commenting on the Gulliman model?

        where’s his rowboat? i was misled…

        • Nightwalker

          It’s also interesting that there is no article on this. I wonder if my sources are better than theirs? I mean I got this (and a few others) from a friend of a friend of mine

  • Hesporos

    I don’t think we are getting a return of Vect, as much as I would love that, sounds more just like a narrative post. Though I really really do hope I am wrong…

    • grim

      So negative. Yes new vect someone already rumored they’ve seen the box as they were loading a truck a few weeks back. It’s was a box with vect and two incubi bodyguard.

      • Hesporos

        I had not read that, I seriously hope it is true!

      • TheMawr

        Sadly however that person put out alot of out-there rumors and at the same time he “saw” Vect he also “saw” the triumvate box wich he got completely wrong, even though he claimed to see the contents 😉 so either it were lies, or the person is extremely blind and what he thought was vect were actually boxes of gryph hounds :p

        • jeff white

          or it is deliberate disinfomation to take you off their trail…

      • J Mad

        rumor =/= release

    • Sean Bishell

      You’re right, Vect is just gonna die in this book. Vect, 2017’s newest victim!

  • Jonathan B.

    Vect is vexed.

    • SilentPony


      • orionburn

        …and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volitio

        • Kevin Maloney

          The only verdict is vengeance, a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the villainous.

    • EnTyme

      What’s our Vector, Victor?

      • orionburn

        We got clearance, Clarence.

        • SilentPony

          Roger Roger

          • JPMcMillen

            Surely you can’t be serious.

          • Mathieu Grainger

            I am, and don’t call me shirley

          • kloosterboer

            Turkish prison. Mic drop.

          • jeff white

            Don’t call me “Shirley!”

      • DJ860

        Make the jump, John.

      • Dennis J. Pechavar

        Do you like movies about gladiators?

  • grenstauf

    SQUEEEEEEEEE! I hope it’s a new Dais.

  • Michael McGuiggan

    OMG Are we really getting VECT?

    • vlad78

      Probably, and he will also probably die in the end.

  • silashand

    I think Vect on his Dias will be the large model associated with Gathering Storm like Magnus was for the Curse of the Wulfen/Wrath of Magnus series.

    • Peter Max Kuhlman

      I would die a happy Archon.

    • Eldar are Chaos now

      Lol, no he will die.

    • DJ860

      It will go one of two ways, new model, great, or no new model, Vect dies.

      • Dennis J. Pechavar

        Or new model and he dies anyway. Thanks GW. 😛

  • mrt181

    maybe GW will kill off the current Dark Eldar due to poor sales. Maybe they are going to be replaced with that Ynnead cult, in hope of better sales

    • Will Evans

      Maybe you need to wash that thought from your brain. 😛

    • kingcobra668


    • Jared McWilliams

      It’s possible, they would probably not eliminate the model line but could destroy DE society and the remnants are now all ynnead cult….

      The title does say the bane of Commoragh.

      Given however when the news of Aeldari was coming it sad De would have a new name, so likely DE will still be around

    • charlie

      Doesn’t make sense. So far we know the Ynnari includes wyches and Incubi, two of the less used kits, and excludes all the covens units, which are some of the most popular kits because they are the only units with formations.

      It looks more like they are trying to find ways to get the less popular or effective units onto the table.

      • Latro_the_Zombie

        as in the ones they don’t sell enough of XD

  • Horus84cmd

    Obviously it means the internet must panic, read too much into it and make wild assumptions………..OR….. it could mean GW are utilising the power of FB to promote the second installment of the Gathering Storm coincidentally on pre-order this weekend…..

  • SilentPony

    God I want Fulgrim to show up and just eat Vect. Like dislodging his jaw like a snake and just swallowing the dude whole.

    • Darth Bumbles

      Vect’s last words would “just as I planned” and he’d end up possessing Fulgrim.
      Because Vect.

      • Nathaniel Wright

        He’d swallow Vect, except it was really a black hole shaped like Vect.

    • Eldar are Chaos now

      Vect becomes the incarnate of pain!

    • DJ860

      They’d just remake him from the fecal matter.

  • Darth Bumbles

    The Bane of Cammoragh is hope.
    Vect only rules because of the understandable fear of what he’d do to you if you crossed him or he was bored one day and wanted to know what would happen if you strap someone to an artifact from before the dawn of humanity and insert scorpions into the most accessible orifices.

    If the Dorthaki or whatever GW is renaming the True Kin suddenly started to hope for the future rather than scheme to be the new lead scorpion inserter folks might start to cause trouble for Vect.

  • Laurence J Sinclair

    Like Abaddon, Vect will show up in the book but get no model. Maybe he’ll be part of a later Triumverate of Evil? Him, Abaddon and… I dunno, Doomrider.

  • Darth Bumbles

    Dark Eldar Triumverate – Vect, the Dias and Vect’s Ego.

    • ILikeToColourRed

      with the avatar of Vect’s ego being the largest of the models?

      • Darth Bumbles

        Only matched by the avatar of Lorgar’s smugness.

  • Victor Hartmann

    Well of course he’s unhappy. Look at all that stuff he’s toting around on his back while keeping an arm up to hold the space pyramid thingy. Looks exhausting. Can’t even take a lie-down without an hour of servants removing gear.

  • Cameron

    Please give us a Vect miniature. It would be so epic now.

  • kingcobra668

    These comments are death. Try hard(er)

  • Emperor’s Champion

    wait, I know everyone’s screaming out NEW VECT MINI. but….I had no idea that art work from the 5th ed codex was actually him!

  • Private Skittles

    I don’t think there will be a Vect or DE triumvirate mini release. It contradicts with the current contradicting rumours of a chaos trio + “golden” book cover of hope for book 3 suggesting Imperium.

    If DE got a trio Eldar would need a trio…3 eldar trios would be too many releases for them unless the campaign has a huge amount of releases on the way (i.e 3 for imperium, 3 for chaos, etc.) which I don’t think will’s just too much to believe.

    I think Vect will be killed or just be a plot device for the Ynarri to buddy with the Imperium for survival. Vect is basically 40k’s biggest pro-lifer.

    • Haighus

      It doesn’t have to be a DE trio, just an anti-Ynnead trio. I’m sure many Craftworlders don’t like the idea of feeding all their souls into a god. Iyanden especially springs to mind, they would lose half their army if the Wraith warriors are all nommed by Ynnead.

    • Silas7

      Lol biggest pro-lifer! we’re talking about the same evil pain vampire that goes around killing for the pleasure right?

      • Private Skittles

        Haha for himself I mean. He’s the boss of the race that kills so they can live, f*ck, fight, etc. forever.

      • Andy Wise

        You can’t really torture the dead all that well I guess. So in that respect I’m guessing El Vectorino is very much on the side of life…

    • Chris Elie

      Let’s not forget that this SERIES is called “gathering storm” which mean that there is more to come. This is just the prelude story to what ever actuall major event GW has planned for later in the year.

  • benn grimm

    As long as it also means a new Vect model, I do not care…

  • piglette

    Vect on dais of destruction with slave girls please

  • georgelabour

    The return of Chaos Eldar perhaps?

  • jeff white

    Desperate Housewives of the 41st Millenium.

  • Sentinel

    Return of Vect? His anti Ynnead stance will probably get him squatted and then all the Aeldari rejoice and are one big happy family.

  • Grumpy Scot
    • Admiral Raptor

      Awesome! I thought the Lion would be first, but who cares! I want them all back! (Even the dead ones)

      • Grumpy Scot

        I think Guilliman has the Emperor’s Sword. Did Cypher maybe have that, all along?
