Default White Dwarf Cypher Picture

So I was thinking about the picture we have all seen on the side of the WD, to me it seems like it's too big to be a codex picture. What I mean is if there are actually enough months left for the whole picture before the rumoured codex release?

So I threw this together in photoshop, what do you guys think? Am I off in my estimations?

It makes me think that maybe dark angels could be the 6th edition army.

Nice work madcow.

the only issue is that if this is a hint at a new DA book, you know it wont be till next year (since they need to finish the nice drawing they hid for you guys)

The scales probably about right. The question still is though just who, or what it is....

its just a method to get you to buy the whole series of magazines, it dont think it hints at anything.

I'm not sure what exactly it is a hint to as of yet. Rumours further down the line will likely reveal more information, but as humakt said, nice work.

Well it's the year of 40k, the year to remember. So you collect the mags and you get a cool DA spine pic. The year of the Dark Angels, they'd have to be released within the year for it to be that. So I'm just guessing that that is the go!

Agreed. That's what kills me about all these threads that keep saying that it MUST be related to a possible DA release. If it was I'd hazard a guess that GW wouldn't release them until the picture is complete.

I am with B&K and Zion. Not to be a negative nelly, but it seems like a great way to get you to buy all the mags in an attempt to glean some sort of insight into a possible future release. It was my understanding that rumors surrounding the DA put them closer to the 6th edition release, which is supposed to be mid-year yes? One then wonders what the point of the spine pic is other than a clever marketing gimick.

Hopefully it'll reach the middle and show the DA's with some chaos iconography and they finally show themselves for the traitorous wretches they are!
