For whatever reason my last post didn't link ALL the new previews.

So here they are

Lizardmen

Undead

Normal (sic!) humans

Uber humans and deamons

Bestial humans

I quite like the designs for the CoS humans and the 40k Beastmen. Probably won't get any, but the Beastmen might tempt me.

And in case anyone missed the announcement, new 10th edition 40k is coming: excitable release waffle here.

On the one hand, 10th edition made me think "what, already?!", and then "9th was dull and tedious beyond belief. Maybe 10th will be a swing towards fun again?".  That last one is a rhetorical question, obviously...

Combat Patrol: A Brand New Way to Play
As well as continuing support for Crusade and matched play, the new edition will introduce a brand new way to play the game: Combat Patrol.

This version is designed to be easy to collect and easy to play. Combat Patrol pitches small preset and balanced forces against each other, with the armies made of Combat Patrol boxes!

Not sure about Combat Patrol being designed only for the 'preset & balanced forces' in the Combat Patrol boxes. Hopefully GW'll tell us a bit more about that soon...I used to really love 40k in 40mins / Combat Patrol games but these seem like they'll be much bigger.
My current project...Classic Wargame - An experiment in 24" of wargaming!

@ Lost Egg:

Might not be; if they are each designed around a boxed force plus maybe another unit or character, they'd be around the size of a 2nd edition army.




Also, another Primarch is due to be released soon: Lion El'Jonson





Quite a nice model, and I like the helmeted head options in particular. I dread to think what it might cost though...

"More than you can afford pal, Games Workshop."

While I don't do much in the way of any GW stuff (don't play any of their games, but occasionally pick up minis I like) I see more or less nothing of interest in this whole Adepticon, which is a pleasant surprise.

The Cities of Sigmar guys look okay, but again....far more Sigmar than Old World, so, nothing too exciting there.  They "look" a lot like the Chaos Legionaires from a little bit ago.

Gawd.... I might buy the Gallowfall box set just for the sweaty beastmens. I mean, I already have some from the Blackstone Fortress game so what's a few more...

They are a bit bigger then as I'm sure back in the day I had a combat patrol that was just 2 squads of 5 tac marines, a chaplain and a rhino...or maybe a razorback, while some of these combat patrols have flyers or dreadnoughts. I guess it'd be the same as 500pts of 2nd Ed.

I like the bionic bits on the beastmen, it is a nice touch that makes them squarely futuristic (rather than looking a bit too much like fantasy miniatures with weapon swaps).

A shame there are no autoguns though. Call me old fashioned (B-tpr Gaxt from Rogue Trader, some of the art in Slaves to Darkness) but beastmen really should have autoguns.  :)

Yeah, a few autopistols but at least one with an autogun would have been nice.
I hope they do something like a space minotaur. That could be quite cool to go with them.

plus please wait for up to six months to get it.

Even most of the smaller casters out there don't take quite that long...

Hopefully the rest of the hobby wont take to much note and try going up to that level in price and delivery times..

I guess that means ebay hikes, and gouges, with FOOP (Formally out of production) and BHCRM (bespoke hand cast Real Metal) etc being more commonly added to the list of acronyms/descriptions?

I will continue not needing any.

Warlord do the metal casting for GW? Makes sense.

Yep that's quite steep for what you get. The plasma trooper etc is that price too I notice.

Just be glad you're not in Australia. That's a few too many dollarydoos for me.
