Well this leaves a little room for the imagination, however the details in here are spot on with the description below, so that’s good. Look for more on this in the coming days, as well as our own review soon as well!

More Jan White Dwarf Spotted:

Dakka’s Biniabik15 Says the Following about the new White Dwarf:

“Just got my WD. Man, those painting guides of Celestine and the sub-assembly shots of Cawl make it really hard not to pre-order the set. Hngh.

And I would personally *really* prefer GW not unravelling all the mysteries of the 40k lore to boost sales. The MIDDLE of the 13th Black Crusade is as far as I’d go, personally, beause we had that already under people I trust more than the current design studio and if that’s as far as they’re willing to push it, okay. Returning primarchs, explaining away every mystery of the Nids origin, the tomb king Necrons, no, thank you.

…No sprues. Cawl is shown in four sub-assembly groups for painting which allows for easier inspection of all the bits, but on a small pic. And the usual this part is XYZ guide, but the front shot there is the same as the ad one, so wasted chance to show more of him there. Celestine is in a step by step painting guide, so lots of close ups. Her face seems a little flat, detail wise, then again, too much and she’d look like an old crone, eh. Both are featured in battle shots and at least Celestine is in the batrep.

…The Black Templar plus -I- pic is showing them on a moon called Klasius and trying to get *away* from Abaddon’: forces. “Their deliverance comes from an unexpected direction…”

Spoiler from the sales blurb of Fall of Cadia, which is described as the first in “a new series”: Cadia falls DURING this book

Jes Bickham is the dude responsible for “the Gathering Storm project”. At the end of the article he says “the End Times (well, die Endzeit) have only just begun”. Primarchs and C’tan minis are a go, I guess.

Steve Buddle did Cawl and the Inquisitor and Brian Nelson did Celestine.

…Quote from the batrep intro: “With the BT and Cadians I could build one of the new formations from Fall of Cadia – the Wrathful Crusade”.

The batrep is terrible, though. It’s a shame, because it is a 5k BT/Sisters/Guard/surprising ally vs Black Legion fight with what seen to be studio armies of an unusually high painting standard. The few shots that are well done really pop and make me want to buy all models depicted, as a batrep should. But: most pics are small and dark, the armies and tactics questionable and for some reason *cough[the Imperium players’ stated goal is to show off how awesome the new triumvirate is (buy all three, get some formation in the box). Abaddon is in the game as well, guess what happens.

Caw has a melter weapon it seems (one of his guns is a Solar Atomiser, the other an arc…something, maybe scourge? [Bogengeißel]) and he has a rule Canticles of the Arch Magos to boost CM units and vehicles and uses a War chant of Strenght to give a 12″ reach?/bubble? -it doesn’t say- 5++ to vehicles. Is that new? Greyfax is a lvl 2 psyker, they call her a telepath, but I’m not sure if that means her disciplines or if that’s just current GW lingo for a psyker, I stopped reading GW material in German once they started their half-translated books. Nothing on Celestine’s rules outside of allowing armour saves for Termis, it seems, but again the write-up is really imprecise.

Oh, and Fall of Cadia has a handy Empyrean Storm D66 chart that you roll on EVERY TURN to get effects like “all models regenerate a wound”, ” “all models move +1/+3 if psyker or demon “, “roll a D6 for every psyker, thy lose a random psy power on a 6″, “one random psyker doubles his sAr, T and A”, “double the range of all powers” etc.. You all love charts and rolling, right?”

What You Need To Know About Gathering Storm: The Fall of Cadia:

  • Abaddon is leading the 13th Black Crusade into the Cadia Gate once again.
  • GW has confirmed these Sister models are plastic, with Celestine being the first official plastic Sister:
  • The three “new” Characters are: Inquisitor Greyfax, Belisarius Cawl (Ad Mech), and Celestine the Living Saint!
  • There are datasheets in the new book for them and Belisarius was said to be T6 with 5 wounds. The opposite page from him also looked to have the rules for Canticles which may foreshadow his exact faction. Also apparently he has been running around for 10,000 years “doing something that will be revealed in this book”.
  • The “best Warhammer 40,000 story is starting in 2017, and will go on into 2018 and beyond.”

Also the new Tzeentch Age of Sigmar wave will be spearheaded by the Silver Tower single releases as well as the Disciples book week one!

So looks like a HUGE lineup for releases for Jan 7th is on deck. Can your wallet withstand firepower of this magnitude?
