Games Workshop is internet hosting one other Warhammer Preview this time on the Grand Narrative. What are we hoping to see? Here’s just a few predictions.
If you didn’t know there’s a Warhammer Preview Online coming this weekend, kicking on late Friday or early Saturday relying on the place you’re positioned. We additionally know the principle subjects of this preview as nicely.
“New Miniatures, New Rules, and More”
“The US Open 2022 Grand Narrative Finale is taking place in New Mexico this weekend. It’s a celebratory capstone for this year’s Warhammer Open series – so we’ll be covering the event on the Warhammer Twitch Channel as it happens, including a Warhammer Preview with something for all Warhammer fans.”
There are 4 important subjects that the Preview might be concerning as seen within the picture above. So what do we expect they’re going to be speaking about for every? Let’s get into them!
Warhammer: Age of Sigmar
With the Slaves to Darkness Army field already “out” GW has principally proven off all the brand new plastic models from that Battletome. There could be a more recent Chaos Lord on mount equipment that has been noticed — however I don’t suppose we’ll see any extra huge information relating to the Slaves to Darkness immediately. This can also be the tip of the AoS Roadmap that we had.
We already speculated a bit about what’s subsequent. But right here’s a fast rundown of what’s nonetheless on deck for AoS:

Yet-To-Be Announced Battletomes
- Cities of Sigmar/Dawnbringer Crusades
- Kharadron Overlords
- Beasts of Chaos
- Hedonites of Slaanesh
- Blades of Khorne
- Flesh-Eater Courts
- Ossiarch Bonereapers
- Soulblight Gravelords
Personally, I feel that the Dawnbringer Crusades are going to be the “big new army” for AoS subsequent yr. But, based mostly on how the Sisters of Battle and Leagues of Votann teasers rolled out, we’d not see that military for near a yr. So I don’t count on something extra that some teaser pictures from the Dawnbringer Crusades.
So what are we truly anticipating to see? Well, the following Battletome bulletins! Maybe one other battlebox pairing or two? Those appears to be the brand new mannequin that GW is shifting to for releases and so they do hype up each armies. There’s additionally one thing brewing in on the narrative facet of issues. We may get an announcement a couple of Season of War or one thing like that, too.
This is the latest roadmap for Underworlds. It certain seems like there’s a Gitz/Bad Moon Warband coming in December. I wouldn’t be an excellent lengthy stretch to imagine that’s what we’re going to be seeing previews of this weekend. It can be a little bit awkward if GW simply confirmed off the Fearsome Fortress Rivals Deck playing cards. They may present of the field artwork however I doubt we’ll get a card-by-card run down.
Necromunda is in a really thrilling place, narratively talking. The story of the planet is definitely advancing. There’s energy performs and plots occurring in every single place. After the occasions of Ciderack Burning The planet is principally in a state of civil struggle. Not to say the truth that the turf wars are going off street in some huge methods…
We nonetheless have a handful of Gangs/Houses that don’t have autos but. I’d count on to see at the least a type of gangs get a automobile announcement. I can’t wait to see what GW has provide you with for them. Furthermore, we are going to in all probability get a brand new e book announcement for the collection, too — gotta have a spot to place these new automobile guidelines, proper?
This was additionally the final teaser roadmap we’ve seen for Necromunda, too. It’s a lot obscure — however I feel we’ve crested previous all these “announced” books by now. We’ve additionally gotten fairly just a few new fashions at this level, too. Here’s hoping for some candy new reveals (and possibly an up to date roadmap) this weekend.
And now the massive one…what is going to Games Workshop be displaying off for 40k? Well, it’s gotta be World Eaters, proper?!
Every different military has gotten a ninth Edition Codex. The World Eater have been teased and taunted. We even bought a (presumably faux) leak of the factors from the upcoming codex. There’s some supposed “new units” within the combine from that listing. It wouldn’t be an enormous shock to see the World Eaters get just a few extra fashions added to their vary in order that’s probably not that a lot of a stretch.
I feel this 40k reveal goes to be the massive one for the World Eaters. The timing checks out. Either that or Games Workshop goes to go arduous with some Arks of Omen reveals. That’s the one different “major” factor occurring for 40k in the intervening time now that Cadia has their military field, too.
What the heck is that three-headed robotic monster?
Well, these are just a few predictions — what do you suppose we’ll see this weekend from Games Workshop?
