“Well, I was having beers with my GW source the other night and the topic got onto the Fall of Cadia and the coming story arcs and releases. He claims to know out to mid-2017 what is going to happen, but obviously needs to remain tight lipped. I did get the following tidbits though:

  • Outside of Celestine and her Geminii bodyguards, there are no plans in the next 5 months for any SoB boxes/kits.
  • The first loyal Primarch to ‘wake up’ will be Roboute, and not Russ/Lion/Vulkan as many predict. Blankets will be counted! Spirits will be lieged! 🙂
  • Trayzn is likely going to be releasing a ‘Salamander’ from prison. With a twinkle in his eye he quoted: ‘It might not be Vulkan though.’
  • In regards to the Triumvirate of the Imperium on Cadia, there will be others. Think of an Eldar team containing an Eldar/Dark Eldar combo, with the Exodites thrown in.

    I hope GW new years resolution is to really jump into the tournament scene.

    I would love to see them release a yearly book with this years legal formations/detachments (this way they can invalidate any really old datasheets) but not stopping others from using them.

    Also they could include rules for tournament play. So many options and they could fix potential issues with 40k at tournaments.

    It would be easy money for them as we would all buy it and it would be very easy for them to produce.

    When do we get some more awesome t-shirts! 😀

    • Cephalobeard January 1, 2017 7:07 am #

      I’d buy an ITC t shirt.

    Im wondering if the “old” Inquisitorial detachment is still valid to use in the ITC? Or did Imperial Agents replace it?
