Are we about to see a new Space Hulk or is Games Workshop teasing something even bigger on the horizon?

You’ve probably seen the teaser that Games Workshop put out yesterday. It’s kind of ominous with a Tyranid looking into the camera and then the reflection of a Space Marine Terminator in it’s eye.

What’s interesting about this video is the title is “A New Threat Emerges – Warhammer 40,000” which is quite the tease. But what’s “new” in this video? We’ve got Tyranids already. We’ve got Space Marine Terminators already. Heck, we’ve even got Space Hulk already. Although the last run of Space Hulk was a couple years ago…

Tyranids Vs Terminators Teaser

So what does it all mean? That’s what everyone is trying to figure out. Here’s another image that was created by the GW team showing the Tyranid and the Terminator in a slightly different angle.

Lots of folks are seeing this as a big Warhammer 40,000 10th Edition teaser. Which, sure, you could take it that way. There’s been lots of rumors of some sort of boxed set featuring Space Marines vs Tyranids and this is being seen as a confirmation of that. Personally, I’m still up in the air on it. I’m going to wait until we get something more concrete about whatever’s next as this teaser, taken by itself, is pretty ambiguous.


It wouldn’t be the first time Tyranids and Terminators have gone at it. In fact, it’s a classic pairing. That’s probably why it’s being seen as more fuel to the 10th edition fire. We’ve also got the whole Arks of Omen event going on right now. And that’s basically a larger scale version of Space Hulk happening. Plus, with all the warp shenanigans, it’s not surprising that the Tyranids are going to show-up.

So is this a teaser for 10th? Is it a teaser for a new boxed set? What about a Space Hulk re-release? You know, it really could be any of those things. And frankly, whatever it is, I’m here for it!


What do you think this teaser is going to be related to?
