Given the recent Beast Snaggas we're all in agreement this is for them?

that's 100% genestealer carapace on his arm. Also demolition type really fits in their army theme.

That's a Genestealer cultist's arm if I ever saw one.

No, not at all, that's definitely a genestealer cultist’s forearm...

It's the same detonator as the Acolyte kit too.

Oh, yikes. I thought there was reason to be excited for Orks and instead it's just more Genestealer spaff. My bad.

Very recent, 7th Edition. I believe the proper Codex and model line was released in 2016?

It's probably the least popular of the non-FW armies except maybe Harlequins - expensive kits, horde army, difficult to paint, more 'complicated' playstyle, lore that's unfriendly to Your Dudes' long-term odds, as much as I love them it's not a surprise they're on the lower end of popularity.

 

Odds are it'll just be a one-off HQ model releasing alongside their new codex though rather than a slue of new releases.

 They've only really had two releases so far.

 There's an astounding level of salt here, I'm quite happy they're doing some xeno releases and the GSC could use a couple more units to expand their roster being such a new(ly re-released) army. They've got some of the best theming and sculpts going, although their core troops kit is annoyingly terrible being a 5 man box for what's essentially a horde troops choice unsure.png

Not the same (the original has a case with rivets enclosing the inner box, this new one does not), but nice to see more gsc on the way - a real gift for "domestic 40k" games and modelling :)
Cinema itself is a trick of time — still pictures passed through a focused beam of light at 24 frames per second. We are reminded of that in La Jetée...

Always happy to see more GSC models. I love their range. Just wish they weren’t so expensive to do a whole army of.

Well then I guess this won‘t be a replacement, happy for GSC players!

Less salt, more surprise - I would have said their miniature range is well-rounded out as is, bar some vehicle support here and there. I do agree that the costing on the core troops is awful, but that's an unfortunate reality shared amongst most of the horde armies that's unlikely to go away.

 

Mind you, I also don't care for the wargame by and by the large, so I may be making some critical misstep in saying GSC are fine as is - but I'd count that as an entirely separate hobby at this point.

This. If I have to bet my money this will be the complementary mini that will come with the new gsc codex.

It's definitely GSC, and while there's an extremely high likelihood it'll be a single character model releasing alongside the codex, we know they sometimes play the extreme long game with these images and there's a slim chance it could actually be from a future standalone game like another Warhammer Quest, or a 40k version of Underworlds.

It won't be free 🤪

It's so GSC though they may as well just show the whole thing.

I like GSC to play against because it's something different, also tons of fun.

GSC are the closest we've gotten to guard models for years. I'm happy with this.
