Age of Sigmar Steelhead Duardin rumors!
Duardin have a completely different aesthetic than the Fyreslayers
They are also somewhat different from the aesthetic of the old WFB Dwarfs.
They are heavily steampunk inspired (even more than some earlier designs such as the newer Gyrocopters), so look for lots of pipes and gears.
A Metal Golem has been consistently described as part of the range.
Duardin units are described as wearing a “space suit/diving suit”.
Weapons are described as “sci-fi rayguns” in appearance.
As with Fyreslayers look for a handful of new kits accompanied by a large set of round based repacks of the renamed Dispossessed.
A new AoS Battletome coming out: Dominion of Chaos.
It has rules for some of the terrain pieces and groups of terrain, as well as new battleplans.
AoS Realm of Battle tiles on the way and they look incredible, plus, they’ve got rules for in game use, too.
More rumors of a new flyer to accompany the Deathwatch release.
This is a very different layout and organization than the traditional Codex: Space Marines.
The codex will contain a very small number of units and many characters.
Every Character from Deathwatch Overkill is included.
There will be a HQ choice.
There will be 1-2 Troops unit choices.
The big theme of the codex is customization. While the number of units is very small, there are lavish and exhaustive upgrade options for each and every model in the army. Things such as wargear, weapons, and even originating chapters all can be picked and have in-game effects.
It is quite possible to sink giant amount of points into a very small amount of models if you wish.
Special Captain Artemis said to be coming out for them, too.
Plastic Eldrad spotted! Wow, wonder what this release will accompany?
Rumors of a new Kharn the Betrayer model coming out along with CSM campaign rules.
