I wonder who the Tau’s opponents are.

Mixed Imperium would be my guess, will probably be when we get the admech flyer and updates to the admech, guard and Deathwatch codexes

Hope the Thousand Sons actually get some models out of this, because I think they badly need it.

How so?  They've got the full range updated recently with new models - Ahriman, Rubric Marines, Scarab Occult Terminators, Exalted Sorcerers and Magnus the Red. 

 

NL and AL got nothing.  Especially AL because NL have at least the old NL Champion still.

 

 

You're gonna hate my response to this, but I don't say it to express "X doesn't deserve Y", but rather  it is meant to be taken as a discussion on what I think is most likely to occur.

 

Here goes: Neither NL nor AL are part of Chaos' big 4 (The main Chaos God aligned legions). I wouldn't expect much for these legions beyond what is given to Black Legion or 'generic chaos' in general. Perhaps when GW deigns it, they might get upgrade sprues and singular characters like the loyalist first founding codex chapters (that aren't UM or the big 3). But I don't think expecting anything like Death Guard or Thousand Sons is remotely realistic.

 

EDIT: Incomprehensible grammar.

I think it's likely to be Azrael who gets the Primaris treatment, from the DA perspective. Of course I'd love a chapter specific unit, but that seems very unlikely. Mostly I hope the chapter tactic gets a big buff, the BA one just did (plus 1 to advance and charge across the army).

Deathgaurd.

Will probably be about the battle for the startide Nexus.

Tau have been losing that battle against deathgaurd and have just been throwing millions of bodies at it while trying to find a solution.

(My hopes? Kais model)

A chapter specific unit would be in the flavor of BA's DC Intercessors. 

 

Possible realistic(?) expectation: Deathwing Aggressors?

So wait, PA4 ISN'T Space wolves?

Would that mark the first time the french rumors from months ago weren't correct? Then again I guess it could just be that since they sped up the whole thing, they've shuffled the release schedule of them


He stopped talking in September iirc, I think it surprised him how far the rumors spread.

What do you mean deserve? They HAVE a standalone Codex. 

 

 

Oh yeah, they do have it, I forgot.  Well, some Chaos Legions got nothing so until this is corrected the TS should be happy with what they've got.

That would be interesting, if they also buff the Deathwing rules.

On the other had; this is psychic awakening. Likely for Ezekiel to be turned primaris. His miniature is just as old.

That's a silly thing to say considering they also don't get to use everything from the main Codex. Do you have some kind of personal problem with Thousand Sons or why are you so against them getting some love?

You cant compare a standalone codex vs. Legions in a book. Sure, the other legions could use conversion bit packs and a new character like iron hands, fists, ultra, etc. But that's like it's own unique category.

I think the big call for more models in the thousand sons codex, and much more comparable situation is death guard vs sons. The death guard received a substantial amount of new stuff compared to sons, and I think that is what helped stoke the flame.

If they brought rules for the Osiron into 40k, they don't even need a new model to give TS what they want.

Yeah that still boggles me why they haven't done anything with the osiron. So easy to just throwin in there. Unless of course...something too similar was already in the works....

That makes me happy. Some new toys for my dusty bois. I'm not expecting too much given the last releases but there should be a few gems in there.

I feel like if they wanted the Osiron dresdnought to have rules they could have done that already years ago. Maybe they were waiting for something like this to drop it on us?

The question is will we get new models or not? I feel like these will new models they announced will be one primrised SM character as opposed to something new for each faction.

I just hope there's some Deathwatch action there.

I would bet money on DW being included in this. I have a feeling we'll see AdMech vs necrons in another book

Please plastic Azrael? I have him and he's metal. I can literally injure someone by throwing Azrael at them. Plus he's annoying to transport at the moment, for me anyways. Would love to see that model primarisized!

They still got two characters. Both of which were updates of FAR NEWER Resin models.

Yes, but not at once. Never expect to one up UM, even a little, and you'll be disappointed a lot less ;)

I'd like to see Azrael replaced by a new Primaris character; it'll be much better than having every major marine chapter master/main character get the Primaris treatment. I was also hoping that Dark Angels would be part of a Primaris wave 3, with additional Gravis/Aggressor variants. I don't think that'll be the case and it'll be similar to the other limited releases associated with the other psychic awakening books.

Did he ever say it was specifically PA4 for that matchup or just "early next year"?

 

In any case, even if he was wrong about the order, it seems he was right about the matchup itself. "Saga of the Beast" doesn't leave much room for doubt.
