Default 40k Gathering Storm

I think this deserves it's own thread because it's going to be a pretty significant event. We got a teaser intro over on the Warhammer Cummunity page.

Quote:
The Eye of Terror is about to open and unleash a tide of darkness, Daemons and traitors into an already beset Imperium. Against the unified might of the Traitor Legions stand the heroes of the Cadian Gate, who will stop at nothing to drive back the Gathering Storm.

The scene is set for the most epic narrative in the history of the 41st Millennium – a fitting celebration of 30 years of Warhammer 40,000 and a great way to kick off the next 30 years of grim darkness in the far future.

The Gathering Storm begins with the epic events detailed in the Fall of Cadia – available for pre-order on January 7th.

The miniatures accompanying the first Gathering Storm book represent a few of the factions that stand against the Legions of Chaos, including: our first plastic Inquisitor miniature, the huge and hunched form of an ancient Archmagos Dominus, and the angelic Saint Celestine, resurrected (or possibly, saved from the dust bin) leading the Imperium’s armies.






There's also a few hints in the Regimental Standard.

Quote:
Greetings Guardsmen,

Today’s news comes from Cadia, where everything is fine, and where you’ll be redeployed to with immediate effect.

As many of you know, Cadia is the fortress world of the Cadian Gate – a shining bastion of light that stands sentinel over the best warp route for light-years around.

It watches over the Ocularis Terribus, also known as the Eye of Terror – so named as those inside are all terrified to turn their eyes towards the Imperium and Cadia, for fear of the righteous wrath that would fall upon them were the Imperium ever to deem them worthy of destruction.

Occasionally, particularly brave or foolish fleets have been known to tentatively spill from the Eye of Terror and then, in a panic, attack Cadia. To this date, they have never succeeded in breaching the iron defences of the world, and they never will.

We have recently received word that such a fleet is inbound to Cadia, likely another fragmentary rabble of degenerates and traitors. You are being shipped to Cadia, as such an invasion represents a unique chance to witness the glorious Cadian armed forces in battle, and not in any way because they need reinforcing.*

You are being sent there to witness and learn from such visionary commanders as, Lord General Troskzer, Knight Commander Pask, and maybe even the legendary Lord Castellan Ursarkar E. Creed. Over 1,000 other regiments, several Space Marine Chapters and a dozen Imperial Knight households will be joining you for this learning opportunity.

So, in summary. Everything is fine on Cadia. You’re being deployed there immediately, but that is great, because everything is fine and you might get to meet a Hero of the Imperium.

Thoughts for the Day:
‘Cadia Stands! It will stand until the Eye burns cold.’
– Major Lord Castellan Creed**

*Though you will be required to take part in potentially deadly combat situations
**Paraphrased for dramatic effect.

I've put together vehicles with less shit to paint on it than that Archmagos! Like the look of all those mini's though. That Inquisitor especially. That bolt gun/crossbow is pretty cool.

These appear to be in the January WD, but as the leak comes from a Spanish version, these may or may not be a 40k release rather than an AoS one.

Not at all happy with the pricing and release style for the Magos, Saint Celestine and Inquisitor: as one box. Triumvirate of the Imperium for £50 contains all three...

Well that's great but I only want one, the Magos. Not bothered about Celestine and I have no use for the Inquisitor. But if I want the Magos for my Mechanicus army I need to either buy two figures I don't want as well or buy a Magos separate on eBay for an inflated price...

Or you could buy the box, and be the one selling Celestine and the Inquisitior at over inflated prices.

Looking at the backs of the guys in the foreground, this definitely looks like an AoS release.

From /u/Sanguinius on Reddit:

Quote:
Well, I was having beers with my GW source the other night and the topic got onto the Fall of Cadia and the coming story arcs and releases. He claims to know out to mid-2017 what is going to happen, but obviously needs to remain tight lipped. I did get the following tidbits though:
  • Outside of Celestine and her Geminii bodyguards, there are no plans in the next 5 months for any SoB boxes/kits.
  • The first loyal Primarch to 'wake up' will be Roboute, and not Russ/Lion/Vulkan as many predict. Blankets will be counted! Spirits will be lieged!
  • Trayzn is likely going to be releasing a 'Salamander' from prison. With a twinkle in his eye he quoted: 'It might not be Vulkan though.'
  • In regards to the Triumvirate of the Imperium on Cadia, there will be others. Think of an Eldar team containing an Eldar/Dark Eldar combo, with the[–]Sanguinius[S] 2 points 12 hours ago
    If it makes you feel any better, he hasn't been wrong on anything he's told me yet.
    He didn't say there wouldn't be plastic Sisters, it's just that with the release schedule, we won't be seeing any before May....or more correctly, if they exist, they don't appear on the release schedule.
    From what I am led to believe, the focus of this Fall of Cadia release is on the 'Triumvirate of the Imperium'; and doesn't necessarily mean a Primarch is going to show for this release window.


    Exodites thrown in.
That's all he could say. Discuss away. He's a very good source who gave me the Imp Agents + Traitor Legion info a few weeks back, so I have very good confidence that his info is legit.
Edit: A lot of speculation in the last few hours is leaning towards Dorn being woken in Trazyn's collection noting the presence of Imp Fists and Black Templars. This is purely speculation, but has anyone thought of Sigismund? The lore says that Sigismund went hunting for Abaddon after the Battle for Terra and was never see again....this is purely speculation on my behalf, but it would certainly tie-in the choice of the Black Templars/Imp Fist matchup on Cadia, wouldn't it?
Quote:
Sanguinius[S] 11 points 23 hours ago To tell you the truth though, I don't know how GW are going to attack the Loyalist Primarchs model wise. Roboute already has a FW model, and placing that next to Magnus, the loyalists are going to be pretty underwhelming size-wise, surely?
And how much can you already improve on Rowboat's model? Add a neck scar?
Apparently my man was saying that Roboute wakes up quite pissy when he sees the mass religion bullshit the Imperium has become!

I only want the inquisitor. So if you are in and we find one person, who wants Celestine, one of us buys the kit and ships the models (presumably it comes with rule sheets as well) and the model's rules to the other two. We could all get the models we want for roughly £18 each. (counting postage as well) Actually might it be cheaper as normally element games have the new releases 20% off RP.

Some news on the new Imperial characters, including the fact the the new Inquisitor might not be a big fan of St. Celestine.
