there are artworks in the paint schemata section of Bloodwarrios
wiedling two Axes and Bloodwarriors with double-bladed 2H axes (1 blade
on top and 1 blade on bottom)
maybe we will get a box of bloodwarriors much like the once for
Liberators with different options and special weapons.


Now from earlier in the day, we got a rumored breakdown of the contents of the book, that seems to lineup with everything we’ve been hearing up to this point.

These two sources seem to lineup, so the new book rumors below should be mostly trustworthy.
