We’ve got three sets of Gathering Storm minis headed our way – but what will the future hold?
In Q1 we’ve had 3 volumes of Gathering Storm hit the shelves and with them came three Triumvirate sets of miniatures. These sets are high quality sets and GW gave them al lot of attention. They have a custom tray with a heavy card art-sheet, color instructions, the minis themselves, all inside a double layered full color box with chromed lettering. I would be shocked if they don’t continue this line throughout the year as the 2017 40k narrative arc proceeds.
The three sets so far are:
Triumvirate of the Imperium
Celestine, Cawl, Greyfax
Triumvirate of Ynnead
Yncarne, Yvraine, Visarch
Triumvirate of the Primarch
Guilliman, Voldus, Cypher
A Possible Future
In these models we see a mix of old (Cypher, Celestine) and new (all the others). I would assume that GW would continue this pattern and give the major factions Triumvirates that give us 1-2 old models and a new updated version of someone important with an outdated minis. Here’s what I think we may see later this year:
Abaddon, Daemon Prince, Sorceror (already rumored)
Ghaz, Baddruk (both mentioned already), and some new dude.
Swarmlord (he’s evolved), New Necron Lord/C’Tan, Tau Commander (take your pick)
I haven’t touched Chaos Daemons as I’m sure we’ll see see at least one more Daemon Primarch show up this year. My money is on either Fulgrim, or Mortarion, or both if we’re really lucky.
~What Triumvirates do you hope to see and what important characters desperately need badass new GW plastic to bring them into the 21st century?
