Well this is unexpected. After months of running a fairly tight ship regarding leaks, it would seem that pictures of next month's releases are out in the wild.
These pictures seem to be circulating around a fair bit of the web. My sources are as follows; Dice and Brush, Spikey Bits, Pins Of War, and Faeit 212. It certainly looks like a release you'll want to save up for...
Army Book Cover - This tiny picture is all we have so far.
Onto the models.
That head looks fantastic. I imagine it's a double kit with...
Mutalith Vortex Beast
Just look at those tentacles. I suspect we're going to see those and the vortex turn up on a lot of conversions, be it models or terrain.Hopefully we'll see rules for using these models in 40K in some form as well.
Ah the Dark Gods answer your prayers. These are looking like a great update to the very old looking metal models.
Throgg the Troll King
He looks suitably meanacing, and I really like the subtle mutations.
I'm unsure about this model. He seems a bit of a step away from the current Chaos aesthetic. A better picture might change my mind though.
That's more like it, with a pleasing mix of old school nods and newer styling.
Of all the kits it is this one that looks to have the most conversion potential. I think it is going to sit at the top of my wish list.
Another old metal that's been brought up to date really well. I really like the wheels and the tusks on the chariot body. The Gorebeast looks a bit dopey though.
All in all a very promising set of releases. The only thing missing is a new set of Marauders, as they are going to look very dated indeed next to these models. Fingers crossed we'll see them down the line.
This really does put the Empire release in the shade doesn't it.
