We had to wait a little longer for rumors this week, but the TIDAL WAVE is here.
First up is the latest from the new Shield of Baal: Leviathan. Tons of Dataslates, and lots of gorgeous artwork from the new book. (all courtesy BoLS, Forge the Narrative, and FTGT).
New Tyranid Formations:
- Hypertoxic Node
- I Hive tyrant
- 1 Toxicrene
- 3 Venomthrope broodsInstant death on to-wound rolls of 6 (5,6 for Toxicrene), 12″ Toxic Miasma
- 1 Maleceptor

- +6″ synapse, one giant unit, may use Look Out sir!
- 1 Hive Tyrant
- I Hive Crone
- 2 Harpies
- 3 Gargoyle Broods Objective secured, 4+ goes into reserve when units destroyed
- 3 Mucolid Clusters
- 3 Sporemine ClustersInfiltrate, destroyed formation members go back into reserve on a 4+
- 1 Skytyrant Swarm
- 3 Skyblight Swarms
- 1 Sporefield
+6″ synapse, reroll failed rolls to replace destroyed swarms while Tyrant lives!
Aside from the sheer craziness of the Skytide (mainly for giant apoc games), I’m digging the Sporefield. Its effective, irritating, and pretty cheap in points!
Then we have the latest from the End Days.
And here is the lastest Elvish prophesy from End Times III – Khaine
“The flames await the phoenix, but the dragon stands against him.
The cast of players will assume their roles. Only through their sacrifice will Isha’s children be saved.
The bloody-handed god walks the world once more. The prophecy must be fulfilled.”
– Finubar was found dead, brutally murdered, within its premises.
– Tyrion is the ruler of Ulthuan.
– Teclis tries to convince him not to do it, but in the end Tyrion pulls the Sword of Khaine.
– Pulling out the sword, Tyrion takes on the appearance of the Avatar of Khaine.
– Many are on the side of Tyrion. The Dark Elves who are on his side, they do it because they are extremely devoted to Khaine.
In the third picture lists the reason why we should read Warhammer Khaine:
1. Teclis Lileath and create a plan to save the elves from destruction.
2. It revealed the truth about Malekith and the flames of Asuryan.
3. The heroes turn against their old allies in a cold-blooded massacre. It is not guaranteed the loyalty of anyone.
4. Elves die, but also their gods.
5. Araloth, Lord of Talsyn must launch a rescue mission in the Realm of Chaos.
6. In the darkest hours of the elven race, the heroes arise, but for those who are fighting?
7. Many of the greatest heroes of Ulthuan and Athel Loren Naggaroth pay the final price, but its many …
8. Alith Anar down on the battlefield, commanding the Aesanar and releases a shot that will decide the fate of the elven race ..
9. On the Island of the Dead is decided the fate of an entire race. He had not seen such heroism since the time of Aenarion.
10. After many years (both in the Warhammer world and in ours), there is a winner in the war between the Elves.
– the first of three new army lists is the Host of the Phoenix King, an army led by Malekith.
– Caradryan ordered the guards to protect the Phoenix Malekith.
– The Wood Elves of Athel Loren following Alarielle, the ‘Avatar Isha.
– The second list is the Aestyrion, or the warriors loyal to Tyrion.
– The third list is a big spoiler for the story, so they do not reveal the details. They say that there will be only one winner and this list represents survivors.
– Although the patterns on the White Dwarf are painted with their original heraldry, recommend to paint your own templates for your own army uniform.
In the last image is not revealed anything that has not already been said in other pages or in earlier books of End Times. Photo posted by Shala on GW Tilea.
Then we have this little tidbit of whats coming second week of December.
Plus supposedly there is a rumor that magic will be changing as well with this book.
