Yeah, Triszin likes to speculate about release dates.

I can stop, or put it in a spoiler, with a headline of " My own speculation on release dates".

if it becomes an issue :/

Trizin.
He wrote and I quote;
"so i think this might be the preorder dates."

Welp, I feel like an idiot now. The bits like Abaddon having a day for him, a video, and Gal Vorbak bodyguards tricked my brain into thinking it was a rumour.

It's a good assumption.
But I would expect abbys bodyguard to be the bringers of despair. Well they are possessed terminators are they not?

Vigilus II might not come with Shadowspear. The box might move the story along, introduce the Chaos side of things, generally get the tension to a head and then have Vigilus II come out further down the road, after all the new releases.

My thinking is Shadowspear will come out before Vigilus 2, possibly 2-3 weeks before(so soonish).

The Primaris are a vanguard/behind enemy lines squad attacking a black legion moon base. My fluff thinking is they’ll discover Abaddons on his way to Vigilus and give Calgar time to prepare. Or they’ll blow up the base and trigger his need to intervene.

Either way, I’m expecting it to be a precursor to the second book, not a battle within it.

They just said the other day there's a ton of new stuff coming for Vigilus. So I think it makes the most sense to have a bunch of releases between the books instead of afterwards.

I thought ambots were done by Forge World for necromunda - I don't think they'll be part of the same release

Though they might make some pretty good looking Iron warriors spawn...

Just look at previous week's releases - sometimes we get a big mashup from all the systems and other times it's strictly one.

 

While they are done by FW, they're a plastic kit so will be available on GW mainline.

Pretty sure we are going to see Abaddon in 4 days time. I wonder if the Worldclaimer's spear has a teleport homer which Abaddon will use to arrive?

Imagine Haarken threw the spear when he arrived and everybody just left it there thinking it's just a symbolic gesture but suddenly there's Abaddon with a bunch of Terminators and Obliterators. :D

Bringers of Despair aren't possessed, they're just elite.

Depends how the studio background takes them, if that's what they're doing. The Aphotic Blade - the former Justaerin under Falkus Kibre - are described in Talon of Horus and Black Legion as being jointly possessed by a single daemon, like a miniature hive mind. They're Abbadon's terminator bodyguard but it remains to be seen if there is/was a direct throughline from them c. the first Black Crusade to the Bringers of Despair of the 41st millennium.

Just to add; my local store gave me a heads up and said to expect the bulk of the new Chaos releases to fall on the last three weeks of the fiscal year. So anywhere from the 11th - 31st March. Makes sense, as that'll pad Q4 with some more sales for when GW release their annual statement.

 

 

Abaddon pre order date is 9th March from what I've been told and the same source told me back in August that Abaddon will be here in March 2019.

Have a look at my posts from August last year if you want to double check as I dropped a hint way back then.

Considering the Abaddon teaser, and not Shadowspear's reveal, was the one that had the countdown in it, I'm inclined to agree with Bryan on this.

 

With that said, I'm hoping (not expecting) that whatever they have planned for this Tuesday goes along the lines of "The Warmaster is back... and he's brought all his friends with him", and then they show us some more CSM models, even if it's just a few glimpses in a video. That or Vigilus 2. Or both, really, since the countdown is all about the Black Legion's arrival on Vigilus.

 

But again, Abaddon's the only thing I'm seriously expecting to be fully shown.

Agreed. I'll expect Abaddon and be pleasantly surprised if they show more. New Bringers of Despair/Aphotic Blades would be icing on this cake.
