I imagine it'll be rather like the old Catachan supplement to the IG codex, yes. I don't see why they couldn't give Yriel the ability to make Wraithguard troops, or something, but then I don't know just how much the Iyanden rules will diverge from the rest.

It says his twin is dead. That would make Wraithknights pretty uncommon if they could only be piloted by paired twins, one of which has to die first.

Also that'd be pretty creepy. Almost has an Evangelion feel there if one person has to die to bring the thing to life.

I'm guessing we're seeing some major changes regarding the Wraithguard rules and such to warrant their own sub-book, but I'm only guessing.

Along with the regular codex, and it features cover art which suggests an actual book (likely soft bound like Death From the Skies).

Impressive, tho next to the titans it's gonna look a bit butch, not as fluid as other wraith constructs. Still, gonna be buying at least one.

The flyer even in tiny has me gagging for next month, better get painting my may army painting entry so I can justify the spend

Mount them shoulder cannons on the sides of his helmet, bit of green stuff on the sword to turn it into a giant chainsword and paint him in a Striking Scorpion colour scheme. So thats next months project sorted.

We have some pictures from the WD out, I threw 1 into Photoshop to see if I could clean it up a little.

These 2 are photoshopped by me as I tried to make them a bit clearer

Found someone who transcribed the tiny text from the right hand page from the Wraithknight image:

The arm mounted sheild: "Scatter shield.... a potent device that project a forcefield"

The vanes on the back: Warp projectors which lighten its considerable bulk"

The sword: "The Wraithknight can be equiped with a massive ghostglaive - a lavish gem encrusted weapon as long(?) as a tank"

The lightened load makes me think that the Wraithknight might have the Fleet USR.
