Aw yis!

Posting from my phone so linking to the pics is tricky but there are a couple here: https://www.warhamme...omepage-post-1/ and one of the Quad Bike in the NR&FA thread about the Vigilus Weekender.

Children of the Four-Armed Emperor, rejoice! :evil:

Now in Technicolor!

The bikers are the stand-out reveal from today for me. I've been slowly accruing GSC minis ever since Deathwatch Overkill and those might just give be the little boost i need to turn it into a fully fledged army.

Completely agree with you, Hal. Definitely the best of the bunch so far. :tu:

They've got a real dynamic feel to them. I've always liked bike based models from Infinity, this is very reminiscent of that.

Any word on the codex release. The warhammer community article says they are still the next release but will that be this year?

 

Was just listening to Valrak's video of the event and the GW rep declined to answer the various questions from the audience about whether this would release in December.

I heard from my local store manager that it would be "after jan, but before march" for the codex.

What about new models? Are the bikers coming earlier?

Yeah, I was already making my small army into a full fledged one and those bikes had me screaming like a little girl over how nice they looked. It's also interesting to see female GS cultists.

Knight_Commander: I doubt we'll see the models earlier than the Codex since its release is (relatively) imminent but it is a possibility if they come as part of a boxed set (though again that is doubtful since they already were part of one). Most likely they'll release the models at the same time as the Codex. And that should mean that we'll get the Bikers and Quad Bike, the gunslinger character, and the command table character all in the same release slot. Can't wait! :D

Slan Drakkos: Female cultists? Where?

The one with the sniper looks feminine IMO. It might be my bad eyes playing tricks on me though. I've certainly never seen male cultists of any type with earrings though....

Then again, some of the chaos guardsmen from Blackstone Fortress look female as well and GW has made it pretty clear that they'd like to try to be a bit more inclusive.

I'm pretty sure it's just female heads, as the bodies on the other ones didn't look too different, but they had female heads

The Gunslinger model is what made me decide to start genestealer cult. I really hope that 1- he actually has some good rules, and 2- it is not a unique / named character. I've already been stockpiling all the bits I would need for a converted gunslinger.

I'm ridiculously excited for this. I recently fell into a pretty big motivationless hole until I tried the cults in killteam. I'm loving how they play and think that the models are easily some of the best that GW have produced, I really can't wait for these

I am super duper excited for the big GSC relase :D

 

When I first started I was all about the pure infantry, Neophytes and purestrains for days. However, I did love the look of the mining vehicles and did get 3 Rockgrinders. I think these bikes and quad bikes are gonna push over to a full mad max bike, buggy and truck style army.

 

I am gonna use December and January to build up funds and will probably end up getting 20 biikes and a 2-3 more trucks :)


"I once gave the order to one of my platoons to fix bayonets and charge a squad of genestealers. If they believed in the emperor hard enough they could win... I don't think they believed enough..."
