These are awesome if true, definitely big news for for lovers of HH and FW units.
This comes to us via a source of ours who is getting the information second hand, so it is totally possible it has been somewhat distorted by the time it gets to our ears, or may have been true at one point but not at present, etc. However, it’s a juicy and awesome rumor if true!
So, we were told that yes, the traitor Primarchs and Legions would have 2 versions of some of their models. 1 Version traitor, 1 version loyal. I pressed and was told it would not only be different should pads and such, but different models entirely. Now what that means, I can’t say, but it would be pretty cool to have full blown Chaos older Mark suits of armor, but that could just mean the Legion specific units that have been mentioned in previous rumors. I specifically asked about the Primarchs and was told that there would be two versions, possible Daemon Primarchs! That would be very cool if true.
Also, and this is the one that gave me a super nerdgasm, not only would Adeptus Mechanicus be produced for the Battle for Mars but…..wait for it….Dark Mechanicus!
If that’s true, that is awesome! I can see it too, as they do Chaos versions of the Titans and with the Warlord Titan rumored to be coming at the end of the HH series of FW books, it seems a small step to also make some Dark Mechanicus models.
I hope these turn out to be true as that is just the coolest. This is speculation and opinion now, but it would be awesome to have Electro Priests and such as I always really enjoyed that part of the fluff from back in the day.
Time will tell, but I hope you all are as pumped for this as I am!
