We have new word on upcoming primarchs after a long dry 40K & Age of Sigmar rumor-summer.
With summer winding down and Orks and Genestealer cults ahead of us it’s time to return to our favorite pastime – rumormongering about Primarchs. In particular – Daemon Primarchs.
It appears we have two competing sets of rumors, some from the same sources even to sort through.
The Fulgrim Rumors
For months now, we have been hearing that the next Primarch is Fulgrim and that the model has been done for some time. The full version of the rumor says that Fulgrim will accompany an Emperor’s Children release for 40K, and probably spill over into Age of Sigmar in the December-January timeframe. So basically the same release concept we saw with the holiday 2016-2017 Thousand Sons release window that accompanied Magnus. I’d expect Fulgrim, a boatload of new Slaanesh daemon models (where are you Keeper of Secrets), and a bunch of new 40K Emperor’s Children.
Slaanesh Escapes Tie-Ins
With GW now following large scale slow rollout narrative arcs, this would probably be tied to the strongly hinted at “Slaanesh Prison Break” in the Mortal Realms and in turn open up the new Order Aelf factions for AoS who would no longer be needed to guard him.
Angron – Wait WHAT?!
And here is where it gets tricky. LLV over at The Grand Alliance has this rumor morsel to drop:
“Grot-tember, Ork-tober, rogue-vember, angron-cember….. I heard angryron will be bringing some crazy fellas with chain axes and some puppies with him”
This implies that in December we may see Angron, New Berzerkers and Fleshhounds. Now LLV has called things correctly in the past. It may also be possible that Khorne may get a faster splash release tucked into the month, or that the models are coming, but the timing is off.
NOVA is Imminent
There is talk that GW has had to rearrange a lot of releases in the latter half of the year to accommodate Adeptus Titanicus, so lots of older rumors may be up in the air time-wise. So in any case, GW does a release seminar at the NOVA Open on August 30th. It’s a good bet we will get more info there.
~Who do you want more – Angron or Fulgrim?
