Roboute Guiiliman is coming back to the 40K universe. Let’s clear up some of the crazy stories doing the rounds.
The third installment of Gathering Storm is almost upon us. The rumors have been running hot and heavy for the past 2 weeks and coming out of the woodwork. The book’s official appearance is imminent, but we want to go over the things we KNOW are in the book and what’s NOT.
What’s in the Book confirmed via GW:
GW has officially unveiled the return of Roubutte Guilliman is happening
The three miniatures coming with the new book are: Guillliman, Cypher, and Grand Master Voldus
The story will pick up where Fracturing of Biel-Tan left off – with the heroes from Fall of Cadia and their new Eldar “Friends” on their way to Ultramar via the Webway.
We know from White Dwarf that Guilliman is successfully awaken and is making his way to Terra with a set of adventures taking him to several locations:
Chaos Marines, Alpha Legion, Red Corsairs, Thousand Sons, and Magnus all are encountered.
Now we can confirm that the following rumors are not contained in the upcoming book:
- Abaddon’s Death – Not happening
- The Emperor’s Death – Not happening
- Cypher’s Identity Revealed – Not happening
Now it’s possible any of these things could happen later in the year long narrative arc. Sometimes rumormongers get info way early – but they are not occurring within the pages of Gathering Storm III.
~Just a little bit longer, before the Imperium is changed forever.
