Who saw this coming? It's great to get something new for Guard and all the more so the Ghosts. We'll need to see more of course, but I wonder if this could be more than just a squad? It'd certainly do them overdue justice to be a full regiment but we'll have to wait to find out more.

 

Here's hoping this is the start of some serious attention for Guard infantry, it certainly bodes well... Don't forget to give your thanks to Steve, who no doubt can lay claim to making this happen by faith and perseverance alone msn-wink.gif

Great looking models.

They're sure picking up their game on model detail. Makes me wonder, how long 'till all the old figures are phased out.

Considering they are a BL tie in release, I'd be a bit surprised if there was going to be more than those 6 guys...the article also doesn't sound like it's anything more than that.

Still, while I don't really have a need for these myself, it is nice to see another special release.

Now could we please get a proper model update? Sisters and AdMech should be done, Orks seem to be next...surely we could slot in somewhere after that. )

This is the standard of size, head/body/limb scale, and details, for future IG infantry models(if any).

They look really nice, but it will be tragic if there isn't also a Tanith infantry box coming out.

As the Tanith First and Only recruited many women from Vervunhive, I can't help but wonder if we'll get models of Tina Criid and other female guardsmen. I'm also surprised the models show Gaunt WITHOUT the Sword of Heironymo Sondar (a relic power sword), which he was given during the Siege of Vervunhive.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

They said these models were based on the new book coming out, set before Vervunhive. Hence no power sword, likely no women either.

Looking forward to these guys. They will be a fun little palette cleanser to break up my never ending backlog of Blood Angels and Dark Mech.

I could do with some Blood Angels or Dark Mech as a break from all these guardsmen I have. :lol:

I was surprised no power sword either, but if it's from an earlier time setting
Also explains another character too :cry:

The more i look the more i hate the Gaunt's sculpt. It seems so unnaturally incorrect to me. What is he doing? Shooting? Running? Fighting? Shouting an order? Standing relaxed? The upper part is OK. But his legs... I can't stop asking my self, why is his leg put on that piece of wood?

I really hope that there is an infantry box to go with these. It's something that has been lacking with this regt... even when the original metals came out, there were just three lasgunners to go with the main squad.

Four lasgunners actually. It's a very tedious army to build.

Even if as of this rumor engine it's likely easier to make a modern looking Tanith army from GW plastic than it is a modern-looking Cadian one...
