  1. It's Abaddon, he's infiltrated the Dark Angels as a top secret agent of the Alpha Legion! Nobody will recognize him with those hair plugs...

    Interesting pic. Notice that the subject has grey hair, something I don't recall seeing on any other Astartes that isn't a Space Wolf.

    2. Analyzing colors from this is difficult... I thought the hair looked blonde...

  2. Marneus Calgar has gray hair.

  3. Plasma weapon, flowing robes, green-tinted armour. Clearly a Dark Angel (in my mind), as has been speculated since February.

    1. Not to mention the dark angel iconography on his chest, right?

    2. I am in total agreement. You don;t see those kinds of robes on many space marines. Also it makes me think about the rumors we have been hearing about a new Dark Angles Codex/ that they are going to be in the starter set.

    3. Well... yeah. Since issue 1 (maybe 2) of this series it's been pretty obvious it was a dark angel. Question is... is this just for fun? (nintendo power did it way back in the day) Or is it for something else. Certainly not for 6th ed, as that is likely out early July or first week of August (either way pic won't be done). COULD be for a DA codex in september (october seems a tad far off)

    5. The Dark Angels are the new Ultramarines.

      ie...let's get some new poster children for 40K - someone who'll bring back the grim-dark.

  4. His left arm will be wrapped around the shoulder of a Tau.

    1. Or maybe patting one on the head like a puppy.

  5. My monesy is clearly now on Azreal.

    and if we continue the Tau analogy... i Guess the "watchers" were Demiurg all along huh?

    1. Then a giant foot crushes the astartes?

    2. It's the true meaning of life?

  7. I think the most obvious thing it shows is that there are four more issues before the image is completed. Dark Angels for October release is my bet.

    And for anyone who thinks that is anything but a dark angel, might be the time to pop to specsavers.

    1. The image above is missing the January issue, so technically there could be as few as 5 more issues to complete the image, or even a full 6 to round off a full year of White Dwarf spines.

    2. Why October? Why have a a full pic of a character come out AFTER the codex? The December issue will be the characters left foot, with a release in January if anything.

      If it is in regards to a DA Codex release, it would be for January, which I have always heard but for some reason it's Tau in beginning of 2013??? And I am a Tau player.

  8. that's totally not a dark angle or anything.

    1. Yeah, I don't really like dark angles.
      I would prefer acute one.

    2. Don't be so obtuse...

      I'll get my coat.

  9. I only saw this now - either it's artistic license or that is some VERY fancy Plasma gun! It's like...a plasma gun with combi-plasma ^^

    ...After all the "the story is moving on"-rumors we've heard...could this be a hint to the return of the Lion?

    1. Twin-linked plasmagun perhaps? That'd be an interesting special weapon.

    2. wouldn't overheat as much.

  10. The breastplate seems dark angel, what about Cypher? He had 2 plasma pistol, maybe now it's plasma with combi-plasma...
    And it fits with the return of the Chaos in 6th edition.

    1. 1 master-crafted plasma pistol and one master crafted bolt pistol. And he had figured out hot to point them both at one target and pull both triggers, like a seraphim.

      Also, his head looks tiny. As it should given that his armour is in scale to the helmet that goes OVER said head.

  11. Another clear sign of his Dark Angelness... That chest decoration is pure DA, as in no other chapter has anything similar. New codex for my birthday? Thanks very much!

    Also plasma on a character shouts Azreal to me.

    1. Here is the latest White Dwarf image on the spine. We can now see his face. A huge thanks to Ron_Fury for putting this together for us. It shows us February through June. The image is really taking shape. OK. Who is it?, and What does this mean?guild wars 2 gold

  12. What if it isnt a character? What if its just a sergeant or squad leader or something and they all can be equip with twinlink plasmas?

    I find no logic to support it, But god it would be epic... And i dont even play da. Im looking forward for that as challenging opponents

  13. I'd go so far as to say the angel on his chest removes any doubt about him being a Dark Angel. That icon is on half the DA gear, they only have 2 main sigils, the robed angel and the broken sword.

  14. Its Mark Wells, watching you actually buy enough WD to see him

  15. The plasma gun looks to be a twin linked plasma gun, could be a sign of things to come for the chapter that loves plasma is getting serious with it now.
    The backpack looks to be Azreals, as his was the only with with the spiked skulls on the pack vents. This could mean that DA's are coming out, or they are just going to put every founding legion on the spines in the very long future, and DA's are first (being the first legion)

  16. Looks like azeral

  17. That is one tiny head o.o

  18. Next month I'll try to use all the issues and take a clearer photo, just glad I could contribute to the Blog.

  19. Or maybe it's a new DA character, Master of the Holy Plasma.

  20. It is AZRAEL.. no doubt about it. Look at azrael miniature it is the same iconography on the chest and the backpack is also as well two spiked skulls and he also has a combi plasma

    no doubt it is Azrael

  22. Could be a fallen angel, look at the back pack, this would tie in with what I've heard that chaos are being split 3 ways chaos daemons, chaos marines, and renegades.
