At least that’s what it seems like according to the latest teaser image from GW. Take a look and see for yourself.
That’s right friends, The Emperor of Man’s Best Friends may be coming soon–or indeed next–according to this image from their Facebook page which pretty much says exactly that, but dressed up in 40k verbiage. The light of the Allfather beckons the Space Wolves to go wolf it up on a world where things seem Dire.
Vigilus is a world that’s overrun with Genestealer Cultists, according to a recent Regimental Standard, and you can see in the image that there’s a Space Wolf man leaping at a Genestealer Cultist monsterman, and I’m sure this Space Marine is probably a named character called like Romulus Lobo and he wields the Lupercian Blade Volfstabbr and the Fang of Fenris Moon-Moon or something.
All of that adds up to one thing, Space Wolves are imminent. We’ll probably see an official announcement this week, if not in fact later today–we’ve seen a teaser like this before with the Deathwatch Codex, full of Primaris and Primaris Accessories.
It’s possible we might see the Genestealer Cultusts instead, since they’re featured so prominently in some of the lore articles going around. This whole Vigilus angle makes me wonder if there’s anpther boxed set coming, Forgebane style, which introduces us to the Space Wolved vs. Genestealer Cults. This would be rad, but I expect we’ll see Wolves before cultists mostly because Space Marines.
Because Space Marines. At any rate, get ready for more Space Wolves, teasers, reveals, and announcements in the coming week.
Stay tuned for more information, and head down to the comments with your best guess as to what the new Wolf Primaris will be called, my guess is Dire Wolves with a character called Lycanus.
