I'm actually pretty happy with this. Mildly annoying, but it gives me time to go through the book and come up with a list before I spend my yearly food budget on those gorgeous Terminators.

I just find it weird that only Mortarion is featured in the White Dwarf, but nothing about any of the other kits. Surely they must follow Mortarion and the codex immediately, right? Even then, the Codex will give us all the information we need about models and rules, so why be so secretive about it? Why not feature them in the White Dwarf?

 

I can only assume it's because they must be planning on doing proper previews on Warhammer Community soon, right?

So the nearly one year old rumor about DG coming in October was actually true, although noone could believed that back then....

Yyyyyyyyyyup.

 

I hate so much the fact that, of ALL the rumours that have been tossed around this year, that one that was right. And I hate that I had a hand, if small, in "debunking" it, which in my defense I did out of logic at the time, and the rumour said "September-December" which was just too broad to sound legit. Guess logic was not supposed to be applied in this situation.

I was told on Wednesday by my local Warhammer store manager that the start of the Death Guard pre orders would be the 2nd but just assumed he got his info online like I did.


Id like to know where my local GW manager gets her news from. She claimed that GW will 100% not do Necromunda, the Skullquilla manhole cover was not an official GW release and the hint in the WD letters page was about the video game thats out 2018 at the earliest. Wish I would have put money on that now, would be nice to win a bet that doesnt leave me in agony. laugh.png

 

That's why GW manager are definitely not good sources for rumours or leaks. biggrin.png

 

I had assumed this was the case when he told me but since it had been almost 4 years since I last step foot in a GW/Warhammer store, I wondered if they had started being more honest with their managers about future releases.

 

Just pleased that I only have to wait one extra week to get my hands on the new codex.

but didn't we just get confirmed that pre-orders where the 9th and we don't know what they may release the other weeks or pre-order.

But if the new WD has no DG in it (except Morty) and the teaser to WD October says DG I fear that October will be the release of the whole DG army.

Is it me or is it kinda funny/sad that those three webstore exclusive guys have a ton more personality than their 30th anniversary guy? huh.png

Seven new characters including 'Foul Blightspawn' and 'the Biologus Purifier'.

 

DG army consists of 33 units.

 

14 unique stratagems (appropriate).

 

Only a Collectors edition, not a Primaris edition equivalent (for those who care). It says there is both a Limited and Collectors, but does not list the Limited there.

Atia just posted this regarding AdMech.

 

16th of September

 
Codex AdMech 32.50 EUR / same as above 
Codex Admech CE 65 EUR / same as above (says preorder on 9th? Typo?) 
Cawl 32.50 EUR / see above

Does this mean that there's a two week gap between Mortarion and the Codex and the rest of the Death Guard? Are you kidding me?

Those three minis are nice but unless the art cards are incredible then for £25 I will have to pass on them, a shame though as I wanted to get all the Plague Marine variants.

No I doubt there's a gap. They don't show all the releases coming in WD, they show some stuff that's already out and some stuff ahead, not everything in the month ahead.

Deadfingers was right by the way - he can have his scythe/pistol in either hand. Good catch on the original leaks earlier this year. No mention of the alternative head that was spoken about on the livestream.

 

Also, I think Typhus looks great from a different angle. Phew! Lots of new characters in the images for the eagle-eyed among us

My enthusiasm is turning into frustration with this release. Stop pushing the same primaris models in different box sizes and give us the DG already please.

Edit: and mortarion costs 110€? How, what, why?

Alrighty, here are some things I've been able to spot that are interesting and/or not be noticeable at first glance.

 

I don't know what he is but I like him. Might be the "Biologus Putrifier" Marshal Loss mentioned. Looks like he and the Nurgling are making a Blight Nade on the spot.

I think I remember getting this sword in Dark Souls.

Is this guy someone special or just a particularly fancy Plague Marine?

bd0f4da557.jpg

 

BIIIIIIIIIIIG CLEAVER! BIG CLEAVEEEEER YEAAAAAH!

1c8b9097c1.jpg

 

That is 100% a deadly combine harvester. And its got little mechanical tappa-tappas.

IT'S GOT A LIL' GASMASK THAT'S ADORABLE

e64dbc68c9.jpg

 

I really like that there are flies and Nurglings everywhere, just frolicking alongside the Plague Marines, floating along with the Drones, etc. Makes me a happy heretic. And the Crawler is looking reaaaaaaally good with a proper paintjob that emphasizes the hull's details. No sign of the Apothecary/Plague doctor guy from the teaser though. I wonder where he is.

That cleaver is awesome. Must be the Great Plague Cleaver?

 

Also glad to see the smiling terminator around. Love that sculpt.

Did that "Maybe-Biologus-Purifier" stole the backpack of the White Dwarf and turned the space-dwarfen-beer into pure pestilence? That would be hardcore and crazy even for a Chaos Marine....noone steals from the White Dwarf...teehee.gif

I call that guy DK, for two reasons. One because that smile obviously belongs to Donkey Kong, two because of puns.

So many cool models in those pictures. Can't wait to see Morts stats, and what the Lantern and his phosphex bombs can do.

By the way, the big army picture seems to confirm that there's two different Terminator kits, the "regular" Termies in a group of five and the Lords of Contagion/Deathshroud in a group of three. Doesn't look like any of the legs are repeated, and those are usually the telltale sign of a dual kit, so these are two separate kits.
