I honestly wouldn't interpret too much into that artwork. The foot is in a similar pose but not 100%, all the Possessed have wings and can actually fly which hasn't been so far in the game either, there are Sanguinary Guard or whatever flapping with real wings and there's a Gravis Captain with awesome custom armour without such a model existing either. Also all the Marines etc. there are clearly painted and not taken from some 3D file which is probably the biggest argument against it.

It's a great piece of artwork no question, but it's just that.

It reminds me of the foot of the levitating exalted sorcerer.

Well the picture from the daemon engine showed the foot coming off the ground so its either a lunging/diving pose from a grounded model or some kind of winged possessed. 

 

I would imagine anywho.

When I first saw that art I was convinced we would get a Blood Angels Gravis Captain. I still wonder if we will.
I also note that there's a death company marine there, under the Inceptors. Given that everything else shown is Primaris...
Perhaps the Blood Angels are coming to save Vigillus from the Black Legion with a few releases for them as well.

The question is: Why introduce a squad of flying CQC Chaos Marines when Warp Talons already exist? Yeah they're Possessed (I suppose?), but does that make them different enough?


Also forgive me if I'm wrong, but aren't warp talons possessed marines anyway?
Cinema itself is a trick of time — still pictures passed through a focused beam of light at 24 frames per second. We are reminded of that in La Jetée...

makes me think SHadow spear will be up for preorder on FEB. 23, release on March 2nd.

 

Then Vigilius 2 up for preorder March 2nd, Abaddon goes up march 9th.

I think they're just mutated and extra insane, even by CSM standards.

There are wings in the kit, though they're just for show.

It would make sense for there to be new Possessed considering the character revealed was what? Sorcerer of Possession Rites or some such thing?

Not much tbh. We also got the Lord of Raptors and all he did was give Raptors a tiny melee buff. ^^

I wonder how many more of these rumour engines they're going to tease us with before showing us the whole box. Perhaps we'll see on Sunday

 

Looks like more possessed to me. Scale is indeterminate but that doesn't feel like a mutilator to me.

If not the whole box set, more likely the reveal of at least one of the new possessed from the Shadowspear set (seeing as, so far, the pics look like they're from a Possessed).

Yeah it's either this Sunday for preorder on next week, or they do a double week of teases and reveals and we know the contents next week. I'm willing to bet on the former, with Shadowspear hitting the shelves on March 2nd, Abaddon and Vigilus two the next week, and the rest of the Chaos releases to follow.

 

I'm just wondering where the Ambots fit on this release schedule...

Everything we've seen can't be in a boxset.

Chaos would have Marines, Oblits, Possessed, a Vehicle, characters, etc.

It would have to be a massive Dark Imperium sized box, and those have mono-pose kits.

Im assuming that the Rumor Engine having been possessed by a Daemon is a hint.

At least they are showing stuff with context, not a random lightbulb that took more than a year to be revealed.
We know it's a backpack and a foot from the chaos range. It's a good tease. People are assuming it's possessed flying chickens. Cool

A possessed flying chicken would be a good universe joke/comedy relief, much like grots and Nurglings.
