The new Chaos Traitor Legions may only be the beginning!
It looks like the rumors may be true and finally we’ll see an Abaddon model in plastic after all these years. To be honest many of us half expected this to happen regardless, but it’s nice to see it tying in with current events as well.
Remember the salt with these 100% grade A rumors folks.
Sources have told Spikey Bits the following about the upcoming 2017 releases and story arc:
..a new plastic Abaddon is definitely coming early 2017, and I’ve been informed that he is huge. Apparently he’s been warped by chaos or something, as he’s now primarch sized.
Now I wasn’t too sure about this next part, but I believe the Dark Eldar looking guy in the Inquisitor Greyfax artwork is actually an Inquisitor. They were definitely talking about a new Inquisitor character who’s viewed with distrust because he makes use of Chaos and Dark Eldar artefacts, but is needed because of both the Black Crusade and the next big thing..
Expect to see a new Dark Eldar release at some point, as the next stage after Cadia is a war in the webway, and as I heard it, the Imperium needs help defending the webway gate on Terra now the golden throne is failing, so they make a shaky alliance with DE forces.
They’re trying to seal up the gateway Magnus damaged by the sound of it
So we know that the story with Inquisitor Shadowfax may just be the bit of Lore from the Cult Mechanicus book that involves a rogue Inquisitor that we revealed recently. Also we know that Magnus damaged the webway under the Imperial Palace trying to warn the Emperor of Horus falling to Chaos 10,000 years ago, which served to further distract and weaken the Emperor.
We have also been hearing plenty of rumors about an upcoming “War in the Webway” which could be anything from Chaos trying to get at the Black Library again, or perhaps trying to get inside the Palace as well.
BoLS reported recently that there may just be more awesome releases for 40k on the way in 2017:
Industry professionals tell BoLS the following:
- Abandon’s nascent 13th Black Crusade whose opening moves were described in Traitor’s Hate will be getting into full swing in 2017 and will be breaking out of the Cadian Gate and setting course for Terra.
- Magnus the Red is only the beginning, look for some other Daemon Primarchs to gather their legions and follow the Warmaster onto the tabletop with minis.
- They WILL be opposed by certain Loyalist Primarchs who will make an unexpected return with minis to boot!
- Look for more Imperial sub-factions being added to the game. Chaos must be stopped at all costs.
So yes that does seem like they are advancing the story a bit, and co-coincides with previous “good guy” primarch rumors we had been hearing a few months ago. Plus a march on Terra gives GW ample opportunity to develop out the Custodes and Sisters of Silence ranges more as well.
And of course how can you have a Black Crusade of this magnitude, without a new Abaddon mini as well?
Is it time to reset the clock on these rumors or keep watch for more confirmations? Only time and GW will tell for sure!
