Games Workshop weekend round-up

The floodgates opened wide this weekend. All sorts of GW goodies spilled out so let's do some catching up, eh?

First off, in response to the leaks of the Gathering Storm III models, the Warhammer Community folks again jumped ahead of the tide and not only released this video:

The video contains views of not only Roboute Guilliman:
Without helmet, because who shoots for the head?

With helmet, because people shoot for the head.

but the Fallen Dark Angel Cypher:
I'm 100% positive that the sword belongs to The Lion
and Grand Master Voldus of the Grey Knights 3rd brotherhood:
Because the Grey Knights are underpowered and need more oomph??

GW also presented the entire article about the models and Gathering Storm III for reading here. It's an interesting article, though I have no interest in getting the 'Imperial Triumvirate' I will likely get the book because the developments are so huge.
"As you can probably tell from the title of the book, their arrival sparks one of the most miraculous, game-changing events in the history of Warhammer 40,000 – the resurrection of the Primarch Roboute Guilliman, who must then come to terms with what the Imperium has become in the 9,000 years he’s been in stasis."
Guilliman, (who I consider to be a heretic and traitor on the grounds that he founded a Second Imperium during the Horus Heresy while the Emperor, Sanguinus, and most importantly the incredibly badass Rogal Dorn fought to keep Terra from falling to Chaos), will likely be pretty pissed at what has transpired in the 9,000 years he has been asleep. The Imperium is nothing like the promise the Great Crusade was to deliver and if he sticks around he has a lot of work ahead of him. There is not telling what the far reaching implications could be but I could be a good time to be human in the 41st millennium. Assuming Guilliman sticks around that is. In the article they make a clear point to show that his armor contains a life support system, so he may not be as hale as we think.

On to Forge World, they were also busy over the weekend with news updates on the upcoming game Adeptus Titanicus, a slew of Adeptus Custodes models and ships, and images from the next Horus Heresy book: Angelus.

Adeptus Titanicus will be a game focused on all things giant robot, from Titans down to Imperial Knights. Here is a pic of one of the pages in the rulebook:

The highlight for me out of all the planned model releases for the Adeptus Custodes is this exclusive figure here:

though I admit to some bias towards one of their none Custodes releases:

I needs it, Precious!

and make sure to head here for the rest of the images Warhammer Community gifted us with!

The last little tidbit from the weekend is one of significant nerd joy:

Unfortunately I couldn't discern whether this was in the latest book Inferno or is coming in Angelus but one thing is very clear, the Emperor IS coming.

Did we miss anything you thought was important? What are you looking forward to? Comment below!
