TOMORROW, we're bringing you a preview that's both great and good – join us at 9:30 GMT to make sure you don't miss it!

Let us know what you're hoping to see in the comments...


Gosh, I think it might be something Tau related.

 

EDIT:

 

And here's the leaked Shadowsun.

The new plastic Shadowsun looks cool. Definitely beefier wrists like Crisis but she still looks sleek. The armor is a nice balance of tough and feminine. Paintjob has the black parts "pop" more. Maybe they will show the pic I saw.

Good old GW, previewing PA book 5 before PA book 4 is up for preorder

 

In any case, it will be good to have confirmation of what faction(s) are opposing the Tau (presumably/hopefully DG). A plastic Shadowsun, if the above post is correct, would also be nice to see.

Sounds awesome.

I'm hoping she also builds a generic hq choice now

More than one month waiting and we still have no leaked rules for PA4, it's going to piss me off if they don't preview something this week end.

The PA books have largely been niche so I dont mind them doing 5 already, 4 fell victim to Christmas a bit

Didnt they say before PA5 was February or was that just us assuming it was one a month?

What pic and where?...

I'd have guessed plastic shadowsun or farsight.

Be awesome to see cc suits/ kroot/ auxillaries but I'll hold my breath.

I saw a thing and I cannot share it. There was also a sisters mortifier with iron maiden sarcophagus front. I suspect this image will show up for reveals on the site. 

 

I know it sucks but if the img got out I probably wouldn't get any more info in the future.

No worries.

Just Shadowsun I assume? Same style suit or summats new?

Anything new is good :) (or old updated!)

That makes sense. Any word on who the T'au are facing in PA5?

We’ve seen the Mortifier already, or was it different to this one?

Sure, it's the same thing, but what I saw in the picture had a really feminine iron maiden sarcophagus on the front. :)

Sorry nothing like that yet.

I don't know if there is more coming, or if it is even for the Psychic Awakening book. I'm just going off the mini in a pic and how it is apparently connected to Open Day reveals on the site. Maybe that last part is wrong, but it makes sense now with the tau symbol they showed so that's what I'm rolling with. The armor has aesthetic similarities to the current sculpt, but it is much more in line with Ghostkeel/Coldstar as far as updated sleekness goes. If you like Tau you will probably like this. She's Thicc.

Did anyone actually see shadowsun or is this another case of 'Rogal Dorn with Machine Gun hand is coming'


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.

It's definitely real. I also had the two recent Ritual of the Damned short stories on .pdf and shared tidbits around B&C days before GW uploaded them.

Makes sense they've already shown off the model for PA4, and the people that care about it are already invested now they got to build up the Tau hype.

There's something particularly organic going on behind the T'au icon in the promo picture above. You can see bits of it around the edges and through the glitches. They look Tyranid-esque to my eye, but I could be persuaded to see them as Nurgly bits given recent rumors...

Honestly ... kinda don't want a new Shadowsun. I'll absolutely take it, but I'd much rather have a new character/unit entirely - preferably not from T'au Sept.

 

Still excited.

This sounds like the XV9 suit, or a modification there of. Either way I'm going to hold off on mine until this reveal as I might have to get me half a dozen for my current project.

Very cool for Shadowsun fans! I do hope we get to see something of Lazarus's rules though. Oh wow she's quite beefy.

The same happened for PA2 and PA3 actually. You can tell from those which books are "fillers" and which are more "important" i guess.

I like it - restrained and faithful to the old design. The added heft is a welcome addition
