40K RUMORS: About That Next Primarch

2 Minute Read
Jan 2 2018

The next set of Primarch rumors are here and oh they are so sibilant…

We’ve all been speculating about who and the when the next primarch is arriving. Everyone keeps guessing about almost every one.

But some industry professionals tell BoLS the following:

  • Fulgrim’s miniature is done.
  • It will accompanied by a large range of his …children (you know the ones)
  • Timeline is unknown, but it will make a Mortarion-like splash when it all arrives.

Rumor Thoughts

I think we are seeing a pattern here. Roughly 1 year back we saw back to back releases of Magnus, Wrath of Magnus book, New Thousand Sons, new Age of Sigmar Tzeentch minis including the Lord of Change and the AoS Disciples of Tzeentch Battletome.  It was truly the “Year of Tzeentch”

Then these last few months we get Death Guard, Mortarion, full Death Guard mini range, Nurgle Daemon minis, Great Unclean One, AoS Maggotkin Battletome. We are currently passing through the “Year of Nurgle”.


I think GW has a formula down and wants to do this with Slaanesh next. The Dark Prince hasn’t seen a new mini since before the END TIMES blew up Warhammer Fantasy and has been “lost” for 2 years now.  I have a funny feeling GW is planning a full Fulgrim, Emperor’s Children, Noise Marines, new Slaanesh minis, and AoS Battletomes in the future.  The only question is how long?  Based on the stunning quality of the Death Guard Range – I can only dream about what a 2018 technology range of these guys could produce!

Who knows, maybe we are 2 years away from a full set of Thousand Sons, Death Guard, Emperor’s Children and World Eater codexes to accompany Codex CSM.
