Very nice. I was never a fan of Chaos but this Looks great - hopefully the Codex manages to reflect the army well.

Kind of looks like there are two Terminator units - Deathshroud and Grave Wardens (/generic cult?).

 

Typhus has his helmet - thank goodness. Pose looks a little...insane, though. Need a closer look to judge.

Typhus is actually wearing Cataphractii armour as described in Dark Imperium, take that everyone who said he wasn't! msn-wink.gif

If you're using grimdark unironically you're part of the problem.

I haven't seen a single person say he wasn't going to be in Cataphractii since the Index dropped.

 

Anyway, look at the combi-weapons on those Terminators. Looks brutal as hell. GW have done a stunning job on this range, Typhus pose pending. Love the new weapon on the bloat-drone- looks like it matches the tri-barrelled thing on the front of the plagueburst crawler.

Correct me if I am wrong but is that another blight drone model in the center of the three?  I haven't seen that teeth filled carapace yet.

Both the centre and the left bloat drones are new - the one on the right is from the Dark Imperium box. Looks like they get different weapon options and icons for the main carapace!

Looks like Typhus has a little creature clinging to . . . or growing from . . . the side of his torso.

Nice save.

The dedicated Typhus reveal can't be far away regardless, alongside the new Nurgle Plaguecrawler(?) which is sat at the back.

Don't be odious - I expected them to keep Indomitus shoulders, like the Lord of Contagion model, which is still wearing Cataphractii. Wrong on the shoulders but was never wrong on the armour, was I now. Try reading the posts properly.

 

But yes, I expect so. Pale helmet being an homage to older paint jobs is a nice touch

Those Terminators are so beautiful...

And that Ad Mech codex sounds freakin awesome. And factions rolled into one!

The 40k fluff explained to an outsider:

Some space elves got really into drugs and sex and a big scary monster got born that ate them.
A space wizard got beaten up by a guy who said he was his friend but wasn't and now he's on a life support machine and people worship him because he was super awesome.
Now there are giant men with rocket launcher machine guns and 4 hearts and are really super awesome who beat up everything.
Also there's a bunch of aliens but they don't really do anything and aren't as cool as the rocket machine gun super men, so who cares?

What do people think - are those two separate Terminator kits, or a dual kit? My hunch is on two separate kits - seem to be a lot of parts difference between them. Also missing the smiling Terminator from the initial reveal in March? Also surprised there only seem to be 4 Terminators there and not 5 - photography quirk?

Spoiler

 

Also, is that  a Plague Marine with a heavy weapon right at the back?

So the Scythe carrying armored dudes up front may be a smaller Elite squad right? Seems to only be 3 up front, so maybe Deathshrouds will be a smaller more elitist unit instead of just a Terminator version (even tho they'll be... a terminator version haha).

It´s the nurgling, on of the two in his kit. One was sitting on his right leg and one was separate piece licking a horn sprouting from ground.

Which would make sense, since they're basically Mortarions bodyguards, right?

Plaguespitter (?) being carried by a normal marine - perhaps DG Havocs, or simply even more options for Plague Marine squads?

Honestly he looks quite different compared to the other Terminators we've seen now. Could be a character at this point as well lol

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

I believe plague marines have the option to take the plague splitter in the csm dex so its probably that

Yeah my bad, that's probably the plague belcher/spewer - good catch!

My bet is there's 2 separate kits, one 5 man and one 3 man Deathshroud. Missing the smiling Terminator previewed in March. But frankly if it's one kit that makes both of those variants, I'm impressed - lots of variety there
