That "New <Redacted>" could be anything really. New race is what we want, but the remaining text implies something of value which isn't a species, more likely a thing. World? Power Source? Feel's like a story hook rather than a model tease but you never know with GW these days!

Huh... this kinda' smacks of a new STC, if I was going to hazard a guess based on this small snippet of information. Which I just did.

This may just be me seeing faces in the smoke but the thing on the right looks like a figure holding a sword across their body, and those things look vaguely like the bulbous spider droids from Star Wars.  Who knows at this point, just like the rumor engines we're free to go wild.  Maybe its the Rogue Trader in question as a render over some new technologies?

The blurred back picture sort of resembles an Eldar with Imperial Knights in the background though.

Whatever it is I'm intrigued. But it's hard to see anything concrete in this. Something that I human thinks they could claim control of so probably not a new race, though.

nah, its inquisitors

 

my guess

 

either

 

- A new planet  - maybe a meridian world?

- a lost forgeworld

 

or

- a lost expedition fleet that has reappeared fromt he great crusade (would be awesome)

I would be interested in a more space pirate rogue trader and armsmen /retainers but realistically I think this is more likely to be something fluff based like an stc. I'm hoping for a delaque reveal at nova.

Yea, either an old Colony with new STCs!?

Or a Blackstone Fortress?

Or Necron Pylon?

Actually a good guess considering we're getting Rogue Trader as faction for Kill Team soon. I just hope it'll be not just "AM soup 2.0 but now with their own Codex".

I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


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

we might get kroot mercs then, which would be awesome

 

 

If we get Kroot mercs but not as proper mono army I'll be disappointed still. I want them as allies for my T'au or as standalone army! :P

I already said so, but now I think that might be too much "old story"
Maybe it's the "new" breach in the cicatrix, around Vigilus, and they will tell us about the next campaign and surrounding releases!?

IN the black library section

 

 

 

Seems Hinks’ The Black Fortress is a rogue trader novel if google translate’s to be believed. Thanks for the info, @Dark Chaplain!

‘There are people in the galaxy looking for profit everywhere: the merchants, opportunists and explorers - the free traders.
These rogues, entrepreurs, and adventurers have the right to traverse the galaxy in search of fame and fortune based on ancient records personally sanctioned by the Emperor. Hardly anyone asks for these two vices like Janus Draik. After being virtually expropriated by his wealthy family and considered a failed son of limited potential, Draik must change his destiny before his mishaps bring him to misery.
When Draik encounters an extraordinary loot - one that will restore him to his deserved level - he gathers a group of treasure hunters around and gives them an assignment.
But Draik is obsessed, and to claim his prize and his many secrets, he would not only risk his own life, but also that of his companions ...’

Hinks mentioned in a recent author interview he had something in an underexplored area of the 40k universe coming this fall. A Rogue Trader novel fits the bill pretty perfectly in my mind.

def sounds like a blackstone, considering the novel stars the same inquisitor

I think a black stone fortress would make sense given the events of the galaxy.

If it is a blackstone fortress, I do have to wonder of this has something to do with Abaddon, considering he used the one he had as a projectile against Cadia. Also there was that rumour about "Black Legion vs. humans in power armour", and Rogue Traders could fit.

 

The plot thickens.

Sounds like a thing I want. So it won't be it.

It will be the biggest GW miniature. A Blackstone Fortress (lol), or BFG.

Could have something to do with this.

 

Janus Draik is mentioned, and he also features in a BL novel due for release in December named 'The Black Fortress". His name is spelt slightly differently (Drake as opposed to Draik) in the original article, but still. My bet is on Blackstone Fortress plot shenanigans as part of a wider narrative
