Unless it’s an older print that I haven’t seen before although I doubt because of how much of a 40k dork I am. Has anyone looked at the artwork from the warhammer community dark angel preview. It’s a primaris marine with a power sword possibly a mid battle Lazarus. No biggie smalls there.

The thing behind him. Looks like an abomination Cypher. Skeletal hands and Nurgle rotted face. But a big big sword on his back. Just my curiosity is peaked.

Yep I think most of us have seen it. It's Lazzy alright. He's mid-stride and he's looking chunky! Emnity's edge looks sharp, long, and thin like a real sword. He's WEARING the Winged Hussar helmet *Grumble Grumble*. I will buy it if it goes on Warhammerart.com as a Print.

 

We have no idea what the thing behind him is as far as I know? A blade serf? Some weird Servitor? Doesn't seeem to be an enemy.

I can dig it. Never seen a servitor with a big sword on its back. Then again I’ve seen them with plasma cannons so there’s that.

Don't think they use the sword. It's a walking scabbard for when a marine has need of it. The Grimdark is slowly returning

Someone suggested that it might be a Watcher. The perspectives are confusing, but it does appear to be of much smaller size. And we’ve never seen beyond the hood of a Watcher, so it’s possible given that there’s well established lore of Watchers accompanying DA into battle and providing psychic support.

Well humans are much smaller than primaris so.....

It’s just some kind of serf or servitor, these sort of things appear in marine artwork

Same kinda dudes appeared on 4th edition codex cover. Don't have a pic but they're there alright. Probably just chapter serfs + artistic license.
