2:45PM – Psychic Awakening: The Next Chapter
PsyAwk-Sep09-PAHeader-zlw2.jpgThe eighth book in the galaxy-spanning Psychic Awakening reaches the ruins of Cadia. While Abaddon the Despoiler has moved on to Vigilus, another villain is looking to make the system his new playground.





Yes, Fabius Bile is back! Congratulations if you picked up on the not-so-subtle hints that we’ve been dropping. This iconic character has spent 10,000 years terrorising the galaxy, and this glorious new model perfectly encapsulates his warped genius. He’s the last of the original “classic” Chaos Space Marines characters to be updated and, just like with Abaddon, Ahriman and Khârn, he’s well worth the wait. Let’s take a closer look at how the Primogenitor has changed.



As well as returning with an epic new model, Fabius is also the cover star of the next book in the Psychic Awakening saga – War of the Spider. As he spins his plans and schemes, his enemies close in on him – the Death Guard, Officio Assassinorum and Talons of the Emperor all have their reasons for wanting to stop Bile. Along with background on the battles taking place amid the ruins of the Cadia System, the book will include new rules for the Adeptus Custodes, Sisters of Silence and Imperial Assassins. There are also additional rules for each of the seven Plague Companies of the Death Guard and a new Chaos Space Marines sub-faction called Agents of Bile, representing the twisted creations of the Clonefather.

Very interesting tidbit from the stream is that the Talon's contingent was sent to bring Primaris to a Chapter that they presumably didn't know had done Renegade.

I doubt anymore will come of it beyond fodder for Fabius and they'll all be betrayed to die at the end, but it's an interesting hook.

I guess that rumour about War of the Spider being the final PA Volume and coming with Warp Spiders and Emperor's Children shortly after just got smacked in the face, didn't it?

 

That leaves Harlequins, Necrons, Deathwatch and Sororitas, of all the factions initially listed.

Having rules for each of the Death Guard Great Companies will be cool. Pity about the EC rumour not panning out but that's hardly an oddity

The "factions" are Adeptus Custodes (and some other Imps), Assassins, Deathguard, Fabius & renegade Marines.

Though still ugly, I'm liking Fabius' face much more than in the initial leaked image.

I like the fluff for the Custodes torchbearer fleet, sent to deliver primaris upgrades to a chapter only to find they have gone renegade and allied with the Spider.
I wonder if this is set in the imperium nihilus?

Wow that model is almost identical to the original. The only difference I can see is the positioning of the hand on the cane and the old flayed face being gone. Shame about the last bit but great update.

I love that this is basically just a HD remaster of the original. Almost every detail from the classic model is present and correct. Really great job.

So the question is... will Bile be allying with the Death Guard or will they be trying to kill him? I'm unsure of any animosity between the two unless Mortarion is still bitter about Bile cloning Horus (if he was even upset about it in the first place).

Not just you, but for some reason I think it works - although I still think his nose shouldn't have been quite so bulbous.

I really, really dig the new Fabius. Just a perfect translation of the original, radiating that 40K-ified Hammer Horror villain vibe he’s always meant to have.

Solid work on Fabulous Bill, i really like that hes kind of blended Astartes and Haemonculus looks with his odd physique. 

I think EC were never going to be coming out with him though, he really has nothing to do with his old Legion (Which is why we got Lucius, after.... well.... that other one) though im interested to see what the Deathguard are up to. Also TURBO HYPE FOR TALONS as a Sisters of Silence collector :) Only 2 months post virus shutdown til Aleya is playable :D 

I quite like the Torchbearers chasing newly renegade chapter plot too, though yeah they arent going to end well are they :D

I wonder if they'll finally put SoS and Custodes together, it just makes too much sense for both armies to do that. Custodes get cheaper troops and psychic protection, Sisters get some teeth and HQs.

I doubt there will be new models besides Fabius and his faction.
