Tinfoil hat time...
The latest leak sent to Kirioth was a smoke test to see who's leaking gak
We must be sharing a hat, because I thought the same.
We've seen pictures of the Iron Hands upgrade sprue in action in the Codex, the Iron Hands Primaris characters, and Shrike, but nothing about Sallies or Fists. It'd be a weird move to switch them around. I could believe that they've had some last minute issue and decided on switching them IF we'd only seen the upgrade bits and Iron Hands character, but with how recently they've shown Shrike, they must have everything already in place for the Raven Guard Supplement to be released. They wouldn't have shown only Shrike if they weren't entirely about what's next.
So yeah, it smells like they've been intentionally feeding some made up/mixed info around the place to see who's been fueling the unofficial rumour engine.
Either that, or if we add another layer of tinfoil, and we believe the theory that these recent years all leaks have been intentional from GW to generate hype and keep the community busy with theories, then Kirioth's source are GW themselves and they're blowing smoke up his Eye of Terror to keep the illusion that unofficial rumour mongering isn't always reliable or accurate, even if they get some info right.
The truth is out there, folks.
