Something Big.... This Way Comes!



Ive been told that the hint for next week out of White Dwarf that we reported on was incorrect. We reported earlier that the hint was..."Something huge ...will fall on you" . The "will fall on you" though was a lot of fun in the comment section as readers speculated on what it could be.


Here is what is being reported..... Could this be a new Titan? That would be big news when it hits.

Nafka, I already have my WD for next week and your hint is incorrect.

Something big...
...This way comes!
A new mission for WH40k


If you missed the discussion earlier, here is a quick recap and link

and this rumor bit.
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
thought I'd send you something I heard a few days ago,.
The week after assassins is supposed to be a complete surprise, expect a LOT more marines, expect a new game... 

Now of course as with any rumour the timing could be off, but he seemed pretty confident with it.

    1. Oops, sorry about that.

      Maybe it's not simply "big," but "epic?"

    2. if they bring back epic my poor wallet'll be empty

    1. I hope not! I love the current one. I've got two and numbers three and four will be on the way soon ♥

  3. Yeah, this does sound like the warlord Titan that was rumoured before from forgeworld

    1. FW usually does not get a main feature in WD.

      Delete
    2. True but considering the shear size of that thing if it is happening it's likely they would make the exception

      Delete
  4. I'm thinking that it's cities if death, I mean buildings in cities of death fall on you. And it would be the perfect way to sell New terrain features.

    The only other thing I can think of is a new drop pod kit which also falls from the sky cause its big and falls. If it is a drop pod maybe their moving dreadclaw to standard play?

    If that's the case they could be adding the bike drop pods to the dark angels arsenal down the line which would be cool.

    1. Cities of Death was recently updated in the previous campaign.

    2. Wondering if you actually read.. its clearly stated that the "will fall on you" is a mistake and the accurate hint is "something big.. this way comes" which is a play on the Stephen King story title "Something Wicked.. this way comes" so I'm sorry but nothing is falling except the sky after this horrendous Eldar Craftworlds Codex release

      Delete
    3. I really hope you were referring to the original quote of Shakespeares macbeth;-)

      Delete
    4. Or Bradbury's "Something Wicked, This Way Comes"... Great flick and better book!

      Delete
  5. Still think its new knights... what the redirects of the other day, perhaps plastic versions of some of the more popular FW aftermarket parts and varients?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think it will be this - the new Knights Warden and Crusader (one box that makes two variants, undoubtedly). Probably with a new Codex because that's just how it goes these days :)

      Delete
    2. Yeah, this makes the most sense. Well, we only have a week till we find out for sure.

      Delete
  6. How about FW finally coming to the webstore, and the warlord titan to show of FW's products in next weeks WD?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That was my thoughts aswell. What a great way to showcase FW in the mainstream

      Delete
    2. When they do get round to it finally I feel they will do it in the same way they did finecast like they were new releases. Lots of weeks to show off all the factions and models to give them all some emphasis but running alongside their main releases.

      Delete
    3. Excellent point. That WOULD be big. Maybe not epic, bit big nonetheless.

      Delete
  7. "Something big...
    ...This way comes!"

    Sounds like a poor translation to me. "This way comes" is not good English, is it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's a common used phrase from something wicked this way comes which was a novel

      Delete
    2. Before that I also think it was a Shakespeare coined phrase in fact.

      Delete
    3. Its likely a paraphrasing of Something Wicked This Way Comes, which is a book title from Ray Bradbury. The expression has been used quite a bit, and may not have originally been invented Bradbury. Its a more poetic way of saying, something wicked is coming this way.

      Delete
    4. Certainly not invented by Bradbury. It's from the Witches in Macbeth. Circa 1600. 'By the pricking of my thumbs - Something wicked this way comes'.

      Delete
    5. ^ and that's certainly good English. Many would say the best example of English literature ; )

      Delete
    6. Indeed, but it's also poetic, with the "By the pricking of my thumbs" first it all becomes much better.

      I will take back mu first statement though, as it is clearly a rephraseing (still sounds silly without the fill phrase though)

      Delete
    7. it's a paraphrase of the quote "by the pricking of my thumbs something wicked this way comes"

      Which is Shakespeare. From Macbeth.

      It was then used by Ray Bradbury which was then turned into a horror movie by Disney, yes, a disney horror-movie!

    8. Lol Ninja'd i should have refreshed the page before replying. Ah well as consolation here's another Disney Horror story, a scifi piece that was clearly a strong influence on 40k! (it's the original trailer but it does have some spoilers if that worries you) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzUJJKDa558

    10. Seriously, it's a Bradbury story, as discussed above, not King. Sounds like you're tired so no biggie but you might want to fact check before throwing around stuff like "nitwits"

      Delete
    11. We're all nitwits... Did you notice that this thread about grammar is the longest on this page?

      Nitwits. :p

  8. What's all the hype about epic? I don't get it...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Epic was...um...epic.
      Imagine 5 or 6 titans, dozens of super-heavies and 100's of troops. The rules were much, much tighter and the turns had both players acting simultaneously via an 'orders' system.
      Tactically it was far superior to 40k (though a bugger to paint infantry)

      Delete
    2. ^ This

      I've been waiting for ages on GW to wake the hell up and bring the 2nd edition Epic Space Marine turn system to 40k.

      Delete
    3. Epic was lots of super tiny low-res models you could paint in one or two strokes of a brush that for some reason people really loved even though it's gotten no support since like 3rd edition, but since the hobby is made up of beardy veterans that still have hobby supplies cluttering their garages and they can't be bothered to let go of the past, any excuse to get excited about a game in a bygone era is suddenly the bees knees.

      Delete
  9. I personally think it could be Epic. It was rumoured they were going to bring it back after all

  10. IMPERATOR TITAN I SAY

    everything else is just too small these days !!!

  11. Where's the list of releases from Hasting so we can check what would match that hint??

    ReplyDelete
  12. Am i the only one who thinks that:
    "something big, this way comes"
    sounds like yoda?
    Maybe as a replacement for Lotr?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Maybe it will be an ACTUAL Deathstar unit, that'll be big, but it'll be called a Doomstar and then they'll claim IP infringement on anyone else even suggesting a spherical space station with a huge lazer on it.

  16. So the rumored box set is probably assassins and not 30k. Also why does the warhammer App say the great devourer stakes its claim.

    1. Because the Dominatrix comes this way. Who bets against me?

    2. Dominatrix please nids need something good or balls to it bring back my doom

    3. sell my soul for a dominatrix

    4. It's because of the novel, click on the "stakes it's claim" text..

    5. Ya a dominatrix would be epic but i doubt we ll see anything like that for a while. I wonder what the dominatrix would even do if models are going by fluff now.

      Delete
  17. The news is that will stop changing everything so quickly and let us all enjoy the game. Or hasbro has finally bought them out and you can soon buy their models from Walmart lol

  18. I'm shocked no one has mentioned that it could be the 30K box set. Wasn't it supposed to come with 40 marines. Obviously they'd be releasing the warlord titan alongside it. I know people expected the two mini-game releases to be separated by months but isn't it possible they slammed the 2 together?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think that would be smart for profitability. Some buyers would have to choose one or the other. It costs them very little to delay the release of one and maximize profits from the other.

      Just my two cents...

  20. If it's "lots more Marines," and a "new game", why isn't anyone talking about the rumored Horus Heresy plastic boxed set we heard of months ago?

    1. Because its too much to hope for only to be disappointed

    2. Because thats not going to happen

    3. Be really odd to have the two releases competing with each other like that. Not that im picking up the Assassins game anyway. Id be all over a plastic 30k release though.

      Delete
  21. We have the redirects for knights, which has been a good indicator of the last few releases, so I'll bet on it being them. No need to get cute with other weird speculations.

    1. no need to get cute with spoiling peoples fun.

      btw, wheres that interrogator chaplain that had a redirect show up? not here? maybe the redirects arent ALWAYS a good indicator of whats coming next?

      Delete
    2. We also have redirects for lots of FW stuff that hasn't panned out yet. Just because they are there doesn't mean they are coming right away.

      Although this does sound like Knigts

      Delete
  22. If it was something big that falls on you and people will want more marines then my bet would actually be on the thunderhawk

    But if it's just something big this way comes then maybe just a setup for what we sort of know and be the new Knights

  23. Chaos titans, only they're full resin and cost double the cost of normal titans while being half as tall because apparently fuck CSM.
