40K 6th ed Starter Box Contents, and Daemon Second Wave Rumors

Rumor Stew! Mmmmmm.

These rumors come to us via the Dude, spaint2K, Erazmus_M_Wattle.

Librarian Termiel: w/ Power Armour, Bolt Pistol, Force Weapon, Frag & Krak grenades

Tactical Squad Raphael: Sergeant w/ Plasma Pistol & Chainsword and 9 Marines, 1 w/ Plasma Cannon, 1 w/ Plasma Gun, 7 w/ Bolters. All with Bolt Pistol and Frag & Krak grenades

Ravenwing Squad Allian : Sergeant w/ Chainsword, 1 w/ Plasma Gun and 1 w/ Bolt Pistol. All with twin-linked bolters and Frag & Krak grenades

Chaos Space Marines

Chaos Lord: Power Armour, Power Sword, Plasma Pistol, Frag & Krak grenades

Dreadnought (Seems to be named as “Hellbeast”): Multi Melta and Power Fist

Chosen: Sergeant w/ Power Maul, Bolt Pistol & Bolter. One with a lightning claw, one with Power Axe, Bolt Pistol & Bolter, one with Power Fist, Bolt Pistol & Bolter, two with Close Combat Weapons, Bolters & Bolt Pistols. All have Power Armour, Frag & Krak grenades

Cultist squad 1: Cultist leader w/ two Close Combat Weapons and 9 Cultists, one w/ Flamer, 8 w/ Close Combat Weapons & Autopistols

Cultist squad 2: Cultist leader w/ Close Combat Weapon & (possibly) Shotgun and 9 Cultist, 1 w/ (possibly) Heavy Stubber and 8 w/ Autoguns

I’ve heard a whisper that more Daemons are on the way. We’ve all heard about new Plague Bearers in plastic. Plastic nurglings have been sighted. Apparently they look like they’re swarming over one another in a sort of wave. Sounds cool.

Not only that. There’s more. Finecast screamers. Like the old ones but less manta ray with more tusks. Possibly some more heralds. Not sure if they are plastic or finecast.

Heralds on chariots. The Slaanesh chariot is in the warehouse and it comes with a chariot base as expected for the square bases but may also have the oval for 40k players.

The Scribes have been seen as well. The disc looks like a flying alter and the blue scribes look manic.

The plague bearers have a new look which as you’d expect harks back to the old days.

What do you guys think about these new releases? The Chaos and Dark Angels units in the new starter set?

      Glad you enjoy it! We don’t know a date, but soon is what I am hearing. I know that isn’t ultra specific but I don’t have anything better at the moment, unfortunately.

    Really looking forward to cultists to run in my Red Corsair army 😀
    I hope the chosen models are sweet too.
