I imagine the GW design studio would be very happy to work on a whole new faction that isn't restricted by existing lore or aesthetics.

Stuff like that is how we get elves riding sky sharks. Which is as pants on head stupid as it sounds.

Most of what you list is part of the existing lore.

AoS is a disjointed mess, to say nothing of what it was on release.

Knights.
GSC
AdMech
Death Guard and Thousand Sons.
Daemon Primarchs.
Abaddon.

Like imagine if instead of a second line of Marines with 2 Codex per cycle, we got Necron/Dark Eldar style reboots?

Imagine we got real multi-pose kits again.
Imagine we got a full Elder refresh in plastic.
Imagine a World Eaters release.
Imagine an actual Guard refresh!
Inquisition?? Yes please!

There is SO MUCH GW needs to do, that is well before adding a complete new zero lore xeno faction.

Update the rest of the ranges for everyone else.

Berzerkers are 20+ years at this point.

It's a joke.

Im mostly surprised this implausible drek has been allowed more pages of spec than actual confirmed releases...

A lot of the bigger/more outlandish AOS are a complete nightmare to transport, let alone keep in one piece. Most of these "new" AOS factions are just GW trying to create a copyrightable IP

Between Rougue Trader Kill Teams, BSF, Mechanicum, Daemons, theres tonnes of opportunities for amazing new sculpts.

Also the small matter of shoehorning this new playable faction into the setting when theyve just shifted the focus to Necrons

If there are new xenos incoming I hope they're a client/allied species of the Tau, for all their talk of being a multi-species empire uniting dozens of races they only have a grand total of 3 represented in their armies, four if you count Gue'vesa, who have no actual models and a small, vastly-outdated rulesblock posted something like a decade ago in White Dwarf. Give us more weird and wonderful aliens!

I mean, at least there are models for Berzerkers in the first place. Noise Marines don't even have that lol

Exactly!

You get FW and/or convert, if you don't have a kit from what, 3.5 days?

It's negligence.

If I wanted new berzerkers it's a conversion from 2 or 3 kits, including the AoS range.

Based on the almost non-existent information and the possibility that this is nothing more than speculation based on lore in the rulebook, I'm closing this topic. If something more concrete comes to light and further discussion is warranted, please REPORT this topic and the mods/admins can unlock it.
