Shadowsun looks to have a Missile Pod on the raised Fusion Blaster (?)

That's an interesting image. Thanks Valrak! I wonder if they're supposed to be combined? Like the next book has Sisters, Black Legion, Tau, and Genestealer Cults? Who knows, maybe just models to show off against the new ones.

Love the armored coffin. Probably do regular engines with those too instead of the exposed commander.

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.

My super-unrealistic hope is that they this rules update to give her a unique Fusion Blaster variant rather than the generic one.

So they leaked the main reveals for 40k of tomorrow?
I guess that the Open Day will be rather boring then :D

Versus some random AoS things? Lol.

This is most likely a banner image for WHC and the Open Day that someone data/linkmined. Them showing off more of the imminent Sisters releases (posed against BL) is a no-brained, and know Tau are PA5. The only connection between those two things are they are getting featured in reveals tomorrow.

As for my “will never happen” wish for PA5: rules for T’au gene-cults!

Definitely looks like missile pods mounted on the fusion blasters... bit random!

 

I also hope that the intake unit on top of her suit isn't too strong otherwise that hair is coming off quickly!

I guess if anything, Tau vs GSC would be a good party for the Deathwatch to crash.

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.

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

The Engines and Tau suit look pretty cool! I almost picked Tau when I came back but I stuck with Space Marines cause that's all I've ever known really lol.

The mortifier with iron maiden sarcophagus looks amazing. 

 

Hell of a lot of details to paint though.

The guitar riff gives it away...

Put the toys on the table and throw the dice. Everything else is just noise.

 

...Unless you're just in this for the modeling. In which case, show your work. Yours likely looks better than mine, anyway.

Tau vs GSC? I admit I didn't see that one coming.

You can tell it's GSC because the Genestealer colour scheme is the one they use for Cult of the Four Armed Emperor, just for the record. Presumably the 'new' Purestrains from Deathwatch: Overkill.

I wonder if GSC will finally get their Start Collecting(!) but with a re-release of the mono-pose Overkill contents rather than those listed in the codex?

Very well, continuing on: 

 

If Shadowsun is indeed connected to Psychic Awakening, I wonder if they will just mention the Greater Good stuff at Open Day and go all out with PA: IV and V or give articles of substance alongside Ritual of the Damned. Multiple short stories and not a single rules article between them is interesting and as I mentioned somewhere else, I don't think we had a rules-free gap like this with the other books. I'm sure holidays had a lot to do with it, but still.. I am still confused about how they considered Dec 25 a "full reveal"

I mean, the Tau do warrant some updates, but I do have to question why Shadowsun, a fairly acceptable sculpt, when the Guard, for example, still don't have modern troop sets.

 

At least it's an effort to throw the xeno factions a bone, and the Sisters walker is nice.

... because the book is titled 'The Greater Good', and she's a resin model that requires updating? That's a bit of a no-brainer. It's also a model firmly placed within the price range they seem to be angling for (£17.50 - £25.00).

Single characters are easier to do than essentially a whole range.

 

Besides, for schmucks like me it's a massive bone throw. I loved Drazhar that much I've ended up with a 2.5k Dark eldar army - I can assure you that was NOT planned and entirely reaction to Drazhar.

 

Single things can kick start armies...

 

 

 

Guard will have their time but they did get all the new necromunda gangs to play with :D
