We have roughly been able to see what is going to be released on Oct 6th. This is going to be a huge and exciting release. I look forward to seeing these huge monstrosities roaring across the tabletop, and wrecking me.


There are several people complaining that only new models are being released right away.......... Its enough that it caught my attention, and what I don't understand, is the rumors are that there will be a second wave in the month of October with more models. Its not that GW is milking Dark Vengeance, its that we already have access to these models, and many people now have them. Games Workshop has said repeatedly through rumors, that they want to get all the new models released. This is already going to be a huge release with the codex and the new models, its only logical that others like the Hellbrute and the Cultists wait til the second set being released.

The way releases have been, 1-2 weeks of notice, would you really expect to see these models in the White Dwarf? No. That doesn't mean that we will not get images of the new models here in a week or so, it just means they are focused right now on the current releases. I find it hard to believe that I have had to write this out, but that OK. Heading back in to find digging out more images etc.

And OH..... The image above is the cover of the codex that we were able to see in the White Dwarf images.

Here is what is being said to be released on Oct 6th.

    1. Was wondering the same thing, those old noise marine upgrade packs were terrible, though finecast may make it fit a little better.

    2. Just the old metal pieces re-cast in Finecast, as far as I can judge from the photos... Personally I'd rather wait until they are redoing those in plastic...

    3. Hoping Havocs make it into that category too...

  3. I'm assuming the PSI cards are chaos specific Psycic cards. (Can any correct me if wrong? Please?)

  4. So whom should I believe? First rumors were about plastic Noise Marines, next wave claimed them to be finecast upgrade pack, third one was again about new plastic and now we got finecat news once more... Damn, I hoped for new plastic Noise dudes, raptors disappointment first, now this, damn it.

    1. BTW, there are more WD leaked pics cycling with Heresy stuff. Cataphractii terminators are not that shiny, so I'm saving more money but that doesn't make me happy.

    2. Found this: pics. We have finecast trash kits again. Thrice be damn GW.

    3. Shame. I guess we'll have to wait a little longer yet.

    4. The finecast kits are temporary replacements. New kits are being released first to protect IP. Plastic cult troops will come later as there's no rush to release them.

    5. Who are you and how do you know these things?

    6. He supposes this from rumors and common sense for the rest, I guess.

      GW learnt from the whole Chapterhouse stuff, if they release the new stuff now there won't be holes in the range and the other companies won't be able to sell proxies/conversion kits supposed to fill those gaps, so releasing new entries is more important.

      Cult troops already have models, so there is no need to rush them and nobody is crazy enough to sell their own noise marines/TS/... And cult marines kits were on the huge list that leaked recently (with all the eldar and SoB), and if I got it right, all that was on it is supposed to come next year.

      So I guess he's right, or at least close to the truth.

  5. Night Lords, Iron Warriors and Noise Marine kits are off the UK website :D

    1. Don't get too excited about that just yet. A lot of figures are simply being ported to Finecast (as GW no longer purchases the metal anymore), to ensure no stupid companies like ChapterHouse can produce minis of their own.

  10. So you are telling me that if I wanted to upgrade my Nightlord army's numbers, It would have to take finecasted (fragile and loss of detail)Nightlord heads?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Loss of detail? Finecast is more detailed. Honestly, you sound like you have never seen or used a finecast model.

      Delete
    2. Finecast's details are much more defined than the old metal models. I really like them, but it means that often my painting skills are lacking for the models I am working on.

      Delete
    3. Yes, Finecast is kind of quirky, but lacking in detail is not something you can honestly list as a flaw.

    5. Finecast has very good detail, just below Forge World in terms of sharp defined edges, and accuracy of cast. It's a huge step up from metal.
      BTW, Natfka, I know how you feel about not wanting to paint the new models. I'm trying to improve my skills on some of the old metal models before trying out a few of the new finecast sculpts. Of course, if you make a mistake on metal models, it's very easy to strip the paint. I don't know how Finecast compares for that.
