AdeptiCon 2023 Reveals!

GW previews AdeptiCon 2023 2

Fear not though, because the Warhammer Studio will also host the Warhammer Preview Online at 3:00 am GMT. Trust us you will absolutely not want to miss this one – it’s going to be a real showstopper. 

The reveal stream will be hosted live on Twitch and Warhammer Community, and you’ll be able to watch it later if you’re still sensibly tucked up in bed or busy working when the show goes live.

A 10 pm preview on a Wednesday night here in the states, what a time to be alive!

Lion El’Jonson New Primarch Miniature Revealed for Warhammer 40k!

Well, GW wasn’t very subtle with its hints, but hey, seeing the new model is just awesome! After thousands of years of sleeping in The Rock, he finally comes out to help the beleaguered Dark Angels.

He’s also coming with a new Arks of Omen book that will also have rules for Dante as well. Let’s take a closer look at the mini.

Lion El'Jonson Warhammer 40k

Lion El’Jonson, Primarch of the Dark Angels, has returned from the annals of history in humanity’s time of greatest need. Wielding the radiant sword Fealty and the Emperor’s Shield, he is a martial paragon – a hunter of beasts and slayer of traitors, stalking from the mist-wreathed passageways between the stars like a questing knight of Old Terra.

Obviously, he looks a lot older than his Horus Heresy model, but that makes sense as he’s been resting for 10,000 years!

New Arks of Omen Book For Lion El’Jonson in Warhammer 40k

Lion El'Jonson Warhammer 40kHe will be coming with a new Arks of Omens book, in which he’ll battle his brother Angron at some point.  The book will also contain his and Dante’s 40k rules and is slated to release later this spring.
