Just an update, my source (the guy who sent me the pics of the Imperial Fist Boxset last Christmas) has said his shop now has both the Raven Guard Supplement and the Iron Hand supplement in the stock room, both with their character models (Shrike and Iron Father). His guess is the 21st for Pre-orders as another AoS product is coming before it.

Two black marine supplements at once then? Not what I'd have gone with.

It is strange, he also said the Iron Hand upgrade kit was his favorite.

Missed opportunity to release Sallies to, for the Isstvan Tinity theme.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

True, but I'm thinking they are still running production on the Sallies and IF sprues (especially if they corrected and recut the latter) like crazy, or it's winding down and packaging is going nuts, if they are to be out in October.

T hmer and robot limbbs

Along with at least one MkX helm, at least one head with bionic skull, and what appears to be an alternative round drum bolt rifle piece (probably just an alternative auto-bolt rifle bit), and the various pauldrons per usual.

There's definitely two bionic skull heads. If you look at the chaplain and the two sergeants in the codex picture you'll notice the wiring on the metal skull cover and the facemasks are different.

Praise the god emperor. Still, it’s going to continue to be painful to wait for my iron hands after having seen this stuff ages ago :P

Split these posts off from the Shrike topic as they deserve their own thread.

 

Cheers for the info, Valrak. :tu:

I'm not surprised the IH upgrade sprue is his favourite. From what we've seen in the new Codex it's by far the most flavourful one while the others have been pretty generic.


Disclaimer:

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. 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.

What's the reason people think thunderhammers will be on the IH sprue, is it just because the handflamer will most likely be on the Salamander one? Or are IH known for using a lot of thunderhammers (I'm not really read up on their lore)?

It's literally just guessing.

 

Given that the sprues typically only have one weapon each. Which is most likely for the handflamer? Which is then most likely for the hammer, etc.

The old IH tactical squad box was (in my memory) the first place where they placed a spare thunder hammer (in addition to bionic hands/legs).Most likely it comes from that

Kiroth ran a rumor today.


2 supplements coming in 2 months, then the next 2 in 2 months after that.

Blacktemplar vs Orks new starter, new ghaz.

If true kinda lines up with my idea.

Darkangels book, 2 suuplements, two months after that bloodangels next 2 supps

Was Kirioth right about the two months? Guess we'll see by the end of the month.

 

Apparently his source also told him Iron Hands and Raven Guard would be one of the pairs, but he seems to have an updated rumour that those two will be the last Supplements to come out, which, considering the reveals we've had, doesn't seem to make sense.

Since I only get my rumours from here and don’t care enough to follow anywhere else, I can’t quite remember who said what, but wasn’t that his original statement which was then later followed by another stating the release order had to be unexpectedly changed, or was that from someone else?

I don't watch Kirioth either, I just checked his latest video about this rumour and he had this to say.

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. ph34r.png
