I have now seen the White Dwarf cover for September (always alleged). It has 3 of the new 'Dreadmarine' models on it, and from the fuzzy looks of it, they are look rather nice. They are dressed in blue for those that care, with not rounded shoulder pads. It does not look like any heavy weapons mounted on them, but the shot is very fuzzy and hard to tell.

Also we have several old concept photos coming around that are very much similar to what I have seen on the cover. From what I have seen on the White Dwarf cover, the 'Dreadmarine" models are much bulkier than these concept sketches below, but the look is very similar.


Just to be clear, there is no name Dreadmarine on the cover that I can read. So the units name is still unknown


These are the concept pics from 2004 Games Day.




The White Dwarf image will appear very soon, probably within hours and when it does I am sure someone will link it below.

  1. Dual wielding assault cannons would be horrendous , my dual burst cannon crisis teams might even get jealous

    1. They probably will be just Twin Linked.

  2. Not sure some over the top dual wielding Devastators.

    I mean we have Devastators already... why not just work with them to make them more viable?

    1. the white dwarf cover has none of these large guns on it. There might be some built in weapons into a fist of sorts, but no large assault cannons or missile launchers.

    2. Games workwhop business is not about games but about miniatures ;) (not complaining)

  3. I think it's 60mm base they are on. It also looks like they have "Fast Attack" symbol on the shoulderpad, but I cannot be certain.

  4. Oh that's interesting , like warp talons with power fists maybe ?

    At the very least it would give warp talons a roll to fill, killing fast attack fisters before they can squeeze the soft parts of your army

  5. I'm just hoping they are not single wound models like terminators. Maybe the harness gives them increased toughness and more wounds (which could be where all the talk of a MC came from).

  6. If those are plastic kit they could be an interesting option to convert into obliterators.

  7. All I see is pics of power armored marines with cyclone missile launcher and assault cannon options. The 1st pic I'm guessing the artist was seeing which arm the assault cannon looks best on. In pic 2 I would say he/she was playing around with shoulder mount vs under slung. Pic 3 is just a pic of a marine with cyclone missile launcher and to his left looks like a terminator with shoulder. mounted lascannon. The power armor does look reinforced by some ablative armor or something. The 1st pic reminds me of a dark reaper. Maybe Elite 1-3 can be dispersed into squads? Even better...when a model upgrades his weapon to a heavy, he gains the added options to make these rumored upgrades. /shrug

  9. Still waiting for the blurry pic. Scouring the forums regularly.

    The sketches look like Jes Goodwin did them, or at least in a style that mimics him.

  10. Natfka- when you say the shoulder pads are not rounded... Are they squared off like contemptor dreadnought ones?

    ReplyDelete
  11. From the sounds of it the ones on the WD cover could be the CC variant with just the torso weapons. personally i would go crazy for a big suit with shoulder mounted Lascannon!

  12. As a Dark Angel player you'd think I'd be all butt hurt and whiney that we don't get these toys, but I'm not. I'm perfectly happy with what I have access too, my list even scare me.

    What this does mean is that my soon to be started Salamander force will look, feel and play totally differently and the ally options are gonna be mad.

    Gotta love codex diversity! (not even being sarcastic!)

    1. Couldn't agree with you more, I'd take my Ravenwing over the vanilla codex any day.

    2. Wow, the lone DA voice of reason on here. Dark Angels have plenty of their own unique options, and since Space Marines won't get those, DA players shouldn't get the marine ones in return. Blood Angels and Space Wolves won't have these either, so...

    3. What is this logic you are babbling.
      The new marine codex must have everything good from every other codex in creation... CHEAPER!

  15. Interesting. Can't wait to see the real thing.

  16. These images go back to 2005 or 2004. Russians had them published at local wargame forums in 2006. Proof: http://forum.warhammer.ru/index.php?s=515c7ccff3c495584fb4d938560cdd0a&showtopic=335&view=findpost&p=3917 (Click the links)

    1. as stated above : These are the concept pics from 2004 Games Day. You should probably read the article before commenting.

    2. Come on, Derek! Most people don't read articles. They read headlines, look at pics, then draw (bad, misinformed) conclusions. Not just with gaming, but sports, politics, and science too.

    3. I didn't read what you said McDoogle, but you are of course right or wrong! And I agree or disagree!

    1. I've got nothing either. Very disappointing.

  19. Ahahaha. Long dead art gents. Plus, its concept sketches, if youve never worked on a "project" like this then let me tell you, you always sketch it out first. Im learning how to sculpt and ive gone through 30 sketches before settling in one. Even ten that image as been altered twice now. Read the article first

  20. So Natfka if this is real why not just post it anonymously on /tg or a board yourself?

  21. I have found it ;)

  22. The sketches are actually done by Dave Gallagher- I spent some time in the studio back then... he was working on them at the time.

  23. Yeah I'm calling bullshit on this until I see the cover, the usual place that has picture leaks doesn't have it. Post it anonymously or send it out to a number of people who can post it.
