Honestly, I think the psychic dreadnaut dream wont come.
They are just too similar in battlefield role to a daemon prince.
Stats slightly differ, but not THAT much.
Anyways, hope is the first step on the road to disappointment and all. I don't see new models coming.
Maybe some new AoS imports.
MAYBE a terrain piece (that will be useless, because GW either hates, forgets or outright don't understands TS)
Well I would counter your similarity argument with the steady stream of Lieutenants we have been blessed with over the years!
I look at the Blood Angels psychic dreadnought, and I look at the Wolves Bjorn Character dreadnought, and that is the combo I want.
A cool character is far overdue. The beauty of the character dreadnought is he can have the shooting platform a Daemon Prince never can. (mind bullets or literal arm cannons.)
I look at how GW have tried to enhance profit by making single models that everyone (who plays that army) needs to have. Perhaps Death guard are the best example. There's a massive stream of really potent characters, either elite, or HQ.
Anyway I see the Thousand Sons Dread as having a very old school look, but modern psychics and an incredibly potent, psychic charged khopesh. And maybe for once we'd have a character that rivals Ahriman for 'must have'.
Getting off the Dread thing I've always thought that the pivotal moment of the story when Yvraine is trying to save her life from Ahriman's attack at some point during the return of Guilliman. There's the cool moment where she is literally showing Ahriman "life from death" by turning some of his Rubrics back into who they were before the catastrophe. Some of them recognize Ahriman and are confused, as if time stood still for them since the Heresy.
Some of those guys, resurrected in that moment, could be really cool.
I'll tell you one thing... I'm going to lose it if we end up with more goats!
