Leaked Images: Will the Shield Worlds Stand?


The hints for next week include two phrases that matter, Will the Shield Worlds Stand, and War in the Depths of Phodia. Now I have dug around and cant really figure out what Phodia is, perhaps it is a new world, or hive world we have not yet heard about.


the image above is a released image from what's new today.

You can see the leaked images of next week's hints at. There are also some images of the new Hobbit releases on these sites as well.

The shield worlds however most likely revolve around the Shield of Baal, but could be talking about the Shield Worlds where The Dark Angels and Night Lords have a history of conflict. I am thinking its still referring to the Shield Worlds of Baal, and that this is just a re-use of the name Shield Worlds.

Historically the Shield Worlds were where the Dark Angels were campaigning during the Horus Heresy. The Night Lords were also involved as Horus sent them to intercept them. Could this be a hint at Dark Angels or even Night Lords getting revisited?

    2. Yeah I guess the beautiful FW avatar that's been sitting unpainted on my shelf might have to do.

  2. I'm fairly sure Phodia was mentioned in White Dwarf in relation to the Shield of Baal: Leviathan story, if you have a copy (which as a news follower/reporter you realy should be getting) it'll be in either the article about city fight or the one which talks about who is defending what (possibly the same article or a side bar near the back of the magazine). will have a look when I get home.

    2. Does it detail who is present?

    3. Phodia is a city on Asphodex defended by the Cadians. Nids rock up with loads of Zoanthropes including Neurothropes and first sighting of the Maleceptor.

      Bat rep maybe?

    4. Yeah. Sounds likely. Probably show off that Neural Node Formation in battle.

  3. I thought Euron Greyjoy already conquered the Shields from the Tyrells in book 4? Oh well, I guess one Kracken invasion is just as good as a Leviathan one...

    1. Sir, I believe your geeks are blending together. Also, following this line of thinking, I'm quite worried for the Space Wolves. And I have a Squat sighting to report.

      Delete
    2. Lord Tyrion says the squats will return to power one day...

  4. I would love 40k night lords to get some love past an over costed upgrade kit, that said 30k night lords are shaping up to be fantastic.. So I'm excited either way

  5. Why even call it Shield of Baal? A black library book featuring the Ultramarines on Shield of Baal. Having the IG and Sisters of Lame part of the experience. Pass!

    1. why even call it the Imperium.....when each Imperial sub-faction basically run their own, virtually independent, empire of the rest of the organization but still operates under the same banner overall?.....

      BA are space marines first and foremost, and you'll be hard pressed finding any campaign [in a GW publication] that doesn't have other armies [factions] in conjunction with the primary faction [army/race] it is nothing new and something you totally should have anticipated.

  6. Is it odd that I think those Hobbit miniatures look great?

  9. Considering that Shield of Baal is covering the Leviathan invasion of the Baal Shield Worlds, it's a safe bet that this is a continuation of that campaign arc.

    I assume that "shield world" is merely a reusable concept meant to represent worlds that protect or shield other, more important worlds in the Imperium. I don't think it's meant to be a proper and unique moniker.

    1. Yeah, I think it's a reference to the outlying worlds in a system which have to be overcome before moving towards the inner area.

    2. i agree it does seem reasonable to believe that shield worlds isn't a unique one off term to describe one area, however a type of area. i agree with both of your thoughts on shield world definition

    3. Wouldnt they call them outposts or "Name of world" worlds?

      Looks the me like this is more in refrence to the power-shields of the planet Baal. So wargear or the generator kit thats was released. They have never released the Pipeline thing we saw.

      Isnt there supposed to be a lead up with a final being a Baal Invasion. So Terrain would fit. More so than makeing planets "shield"

    4. Unfortunately Sebz0r, "Shield worlds" has worlds in plural, it's not "world's shield". It's deffo referring to planets and I don't know of any planet in 40k that has any kind of energy shield enveloping the whole planet, void or otherwise.

      Outpost implies that there is a small Imperial presence there and poorly defended. I still think that "Shield worlds" is a term describing battle-ready planets that shield the inner-system from hostiles.
