This comes to us a little unexpected....... a rumor for the Imperial Guard. Now I am going to assume this is a long ways out, or its for a White Dwarf insert or other 40k expansion. However there are few codices like the Imperial Guard right now in 6th edition. (it does not need a new codex).


Please remember that this is a rumor. Do not forget to add the salt. This rumor was sent to me in the Faeit 212 inbox from Wolfen from LA TABERNA DE LAURANA (a huge thanks) and is translated into english by google translator. However, it originally comes from the Adeptus Forum (also in spanish)

It´s only an early rumour, but seems that Jes Goodwin in a chat talk spoiled this picture of his now early works on the new and future Imperial guard codex..


The rumor via Terradas over at Adeptus Forum
it's early, but apparently has escaped Jes Godwin sketch the new imperial guard

  2. I hate to rain on your parade but this rumour seems very fishy and I would spray truckloads of salt on it...

    Those sketches come straight from a decade old sketchbook of Jes Goodwyn's work published by GW called "The Gothic and the Eldritch".

    I'm not saying this might not inspire long-coat guard somewhere down the road. But this is hardly any proof that Jes is designing new IG infantry models

  3. Maybe its something for a Allies expansion book I've heard rumors of coming late next year. I mean one of them is a traitor and I doubt they would put traitors in a Imperial Guard codex.IDK thats just my opinion.

    1. I guess maybe thats not a traitor I looked quick and thought I saw the chaos star on the coat of the top right hand one and the skull on his belt.

    2. Who's traitor? Clockwise they are noted as hive world/deathworld Colonist, tundra world, Industrial/civilised world and feudal/medieval. No heretics there! The tundra has 'gothic frogging' (noted on sketch) but the imperium's all over gothic, why shouldn't it's army be?

  4. I like these, Cadians never gave the room for variety that the guard models need. Plus they felt too mundane for the Grimdark 41st millenium :P

  5. I don't remember seeing these pics. Anyone got a link to these images in the past?

    I am looking right now but as of yet not found it.

    2. I know you've been off for a bit but that's 2 rumours in 2 days that are old non stories. Checking things out before posting would help.

    3. He normally does, everyone is allowed to make mistakes from time to time. Once he himself confirms it, he will say sorry and either block or remove the post as he has done in the past.

      Plus who is to say for this one, that he did not search for them? He states he did and found nothing.

  6. These sketches are almost 20 years old, made in 1993 for 2nd edition 40k. But I like them a lot and I think it's sad that GW never developed these concepts further.

  7. That's a fake!I have a sketchbook of Jes Goodwin,and that pic is very old!

  9. May be,Jes is working in something...but that picture isn't a proof.
    Salt,lot of salt

  10. It's a good sketch book to look through, there's a sketch of the fortress of redemption from 1990 and island of blood figures from 1992, so some of his older concepts do see the light of day.

    That said, I don't believe that these guard sketches will be used anytime soon, if at all.

  11. Well, isn´t also my fault, I saw them in a forum and they talked they were new pics...

    And I also don´t remember watching them elsewhere

    As always, rumours are rumours.

    So... lots of salt everywhere

    2. well, it is your fault in a certain way, since it is your blog, and it was you who attested it as a fact without check your sources.

  12. Old pic is old notwithstanding, plastic greatcoat IG with interchangeable heads for Valhallans / Death Korps has been the Nessie of 40K rumour mill for ages (first ran into this around the time plastic Cadians were released), with nothing to show for it so far. Oh the disappointment when GW announced that a new IG model range would coincide with the Fall of Medusa V campaign, and we just got "Cossacks in Space" and in metal, of all things, and not even Rough Riders for them. Personally, I believe the rumours of a new IG plastic line when I see photos of actual models.

    As for codex, the model release list for 2013 would strongly point to a Apocalypse-style supplement "Codex: Allies" being released in the summer (with various mini-lists like Genestealer Cult, Mechanicus/Dark Mechanicus, Arbites, Deathwatch, Cabal, dare I say the Illuminati and the Sensei?) and Sisters coming out in autumn along with GW's main product ie. vanilla Marines. So IG won't most certainly be out until 2014 the earliest, maybe a WD update along the lines of Ork flyers and Daemons will come out this year, but that's it. The codex is still fine and we still don't have GW sets for all the options (Medusa, Colossus, Griffon, Hydra, and Vendetta are still FW-only unless you want to convert).

    That being said, am kinda disappointed FW still has not included in any of the IA books the Chimera variants never seen since Epic, ie. Chimedon, Chimerro, and Chimerax (armed with battle cannon, lascannon, and two twin-linked autocannons but without Hydra's targeting systems). Of course, you could still convert them, but still.

  13. I was dreaming recently about plastic Vostoryans as [easy-to-covert] allies for my Chaos chapters. Too bad that rumor was a kinda fake one.

  14. What do you mean "Imperial Guard doesn't need a new book"? They definitely need a new book to bring them back in line! The amount of brokenness in this book is just ridiculous. :P

  15. Hi. Here Terradas from Adeptvs forum.

    We heard that JG is making the concepts from new kind of IG and just said "I wonder this new concepts were like old greatcoat he draw some time ago".

    I really don't know where someone took that these were new pictures and I really don't know why "la taberna de laurana blog" read and publish something we never said.

    Sorry for that, you have the original here to see what we are talking about (spanish): http://www.adeptvs.com/foro/rumores/rumores-guardia-imperial/

    2. Seems too many people are cheating on me and saying me that I´m lying.

      Well, Terradas, you really know what you wrote there, I quote:


      Yes, it´s too early, but seems that Jes Goodwin has spoiled the new Imperial Guard Sketch, and of course, it spread like fire.



      (click to show/hide) --> HERE WAS THE PIC


      Dreaming about Imperial Guard... I would like to see the last model, with the Aquilae on the chest...

      Now, let´s see if it remains sketch or becomes true...


      So... Terradas aka WhoKnown, I only read this and it says clearly that THOSE ARE NEW IG sketches

      Delete
    3. So... Neither Natfka nor I were wrong... We only read that and that is very clear about the sketch picture

    4. This is not a flame war wolfen. You can read our second and third post in the forum to see that all us know these pics come from long time ago.

  16. If, and that's a bit if. This was for any new release down the road it would be fitting for 30k Imperial Guard to fit in with the Horus Heresy. But I think this is a farmer clutching at straws and energy should be spent on more solid rumours.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Am I the only one that thinks the "Aquitaine" armour looks like MkI thunder Armour?

    I personally don't see Guard NEEDING an update anytime soon, But this is GW, so its anybodies game.

  18. Those inages are fron a sketch book done by Jes Goodwin i jnow i have the book. I have had it for close to ten years

  19. It would be awsome if they released all the missing tanks from the current book

  20. To be honest, if GW replaced the Basilisk sprues with "modern" double-density sprues, we could get one "artillery" box with all the options (Bassy, Medusa, Colossus, Griffon, plus FW-only Bombard), maybe at the same price even (and think about the conversion/scratchbuild possibilities when your bitz box would overflow with huuuuuuge gun barrels!).

    Too bad the Sentinel kit was redone rather recently, would have loved to see the return of the classic assault cannon, also HB sentinel or multi-melta sentinel (Elysian patterns) would be nice to have as "official" Codex choices.

    Chimera, bring the TL HB and AC Chimeras to Codex and reintroduce the glass cannon variants above (LC, battlecannon, two twin-linked non-Hydra AC). Salamander could also make it to the Codex, it seems that FW is more interested now in something GW doesn't make at all, eg. Malcador variants and Krieg-specific stuff. Maybe a "Gun-Chimera" box but with 10€ more price and extra sprue - could this be actually combined with the rumoured plastic Hydra?

    LR variants, since the nerfhammer struck at the Ordnance weapons in 6ed, bringing back Conqueror would make sense. LR Annihilator would be nice for some pew pew pew, also, Destroyer Tank Hunter and Thunderer Siege Tank would be pretty straightforward conversions, though the sprues would then have to be reworked again. Or, just make a third box with a new sprue for making the said four variants.

    As a really long-term pipe dream, I could see them reworking the Valkyrie kit to have Vendetta parts in the box, plus either packing an extra sprue or having a separate package for doing Vulture in plastic as well (since it essentially just replaces the troop compartment with the WTFHUEG jet engine and adds extra weapon pylons to the wings).

    Note, all of the above dreams rely on the information I have heard, that FW is running at full capacity with no easy way to expand and price increases having little to no effect on demand, so if GW can make any of their products in plastic instead it allows them to make new resin kits or more of the remaining old without them actually losing any sales.

    Having a plastic Lightning/Thunderbolt/Marauder would probably be a bit too much to ask, though.
