A source of mine has just let some new rumors slide. Heavy salt, but he predicted the Nurgle demons release a month before it was announced, along with knowing about the Death Guard/Primaris starter early and knowing about the new Knight back in November, so... I'm trusting him on this one. Your millage may vary, of course.
 
 

 

New Black Legion will be in a boxed set with new Space Wolves, new Abbadon model and Chaos Chosen, plus a new Wolves character and some other stuff. End of year for the boxed set.

 

Angron and new Khorne will be coming too, although may be next year now. Angron is gonna be huge

Also here's a big one: Kroot Codex. Hard to believe, but the source on this has never been wrong for me.

 

Russ is returning - old man Russ, looks a bit like Odin - and he will POSSIBLY have 2 forms like Morathi

For once in my life I can actually contribute something to a discussion, though you can decide whether or not to treat it seriously:

 

An acquaintance who works at a GW store mentioned that some CSM kits (the pre-Raptor/Daemon Engine stuff) are being moved to online-only, and that could be to free up space for new kits. That's all I got. Make of it what you will, but he definitely has no reason to make it up. The rationale may be totally off, but it makes sense.

That might be a cool box set to kit bash and have a small force of Dark Wolves if the SW are not Primaris. I think its believable.

 

Also a bit ironic that Russ will come back as a "one eyed sorcerer" type figure but I like the twist and an older, wiser Russ will be fun to see.

This doesn't sound too far fetched, to be honest. I know everyone is hoping for Slaanesh / Fulgrim / Emperor's Children next but I think GW will play it safe for now and release Khorne.

It seems Russ has been hinted here and there since the return of Magnus, so I believe it.

I would have doubted the release of a new Abaddon in a box set but with Ahriman being a BoP-only model, I believe it.

A Kroot codex isn't unheard of either, at one point they had their own army and I know plenty of people (myself included) that would invest in it so... yeah.

In the recently released Ashes of Prospero the Wolves found and freed around 200 of the original 13th Company plus much of their vehicle support from a Labyrinth on Prospero. These were led by Wolf Lord Bulveye who is an iconic character in the lore of the Wolves.
These new/old? Wolves discovered the betrayal by Horus and his manipulation of Russ in the attack on Prospero.

It would be very strange if GW didn't incorporate Bulveye and his Wolves into the Space Wolves Codex with new lore and rules.

A boxed set of the 13th Company versus the Black Legion makes sense as they'd be the obvious target of Bulveye anger at Horus for his betrayal.

30K Ahriman is BoP only - but so many people buy the box for mass bodies he's cheap as chips on the secondary market. 40K Ahriman is a standalone SKU.

A Kroot Codex would be a solid call, refresh the old Carnivore kit, add a few dual kits, bam, Harley-sized Codex.

Keep in mind: at the LVO seminar, they said they would be doing more reveals at GAMA, which starts today and runs through the week, and revealing three new things at Adepticon. So We should be knowing more about some stuff soon...

Man, that's exciting! Hopefully it goes beyond the Forgething (Admech vs. Necrons).

I'll ship that too. Abaduss, Raddon...

The only thing I'm surprised about is that EC aren't in the list considering that GW has kinda been building it up in 40k and AoS.

I can believe it. I heard rumours of a new Abaddon kit a while back - The minis are probably ready months or even a full year prior to release.

Odin Russ would be very cool, imo. A wise, tempered warrior and guardian of mankind. Perhaps more wisdom and knowledge than Guilliman. Would be a brilliant evolution of Russ from his HH self.

A new Abbadon especially.
But end of the year? Sad!

Been saying Russ would come back and have two forms for ages. Just the obvious choice.

 

Excited to see Angron though and how they do the Black Legionnaires.

Dang it, and I worked pretty hard on my B@C commander to Abaddon conversion.

Angron would be the first Daemon Primarch I'd buy (and only). Though depending on what he would look like I'd might buy Guillimans helmet to bucket him up.

One of my local GWs marked a lot of older CSM stuff (berserkers, TDA, etc) as ‘last chance to buy (in store)’, which supports what you say.

I like this rumor except for dual form Russ. I think black legion could use some new models especially Abaddon. Kroot codex sounds interesting... Gives the option for sub faction codex in 5he future.... Maybe.... SM Codex: Black Templars... Paging Brother Sete, Paging Brother Sete.
