No need. It's an old Chaos Lord model, however it's associated with one character in-particular - Vardek Crom "the Conqueror", Archaon's right hand man. While I can't read Spanish, it would appear that he - like Valten - is being reintroduced into WHFB.

Here's his model if you're curious. No need to go to Google when you can check the GW Store X3

Crom's special rule, in my poor Spanish-to-English, is that he can choose to use either two hand weapons or a hand weapon and shield at the start of each combat phase. If he uses hand weapon/shield he gets +2 armour and +1 Parry (so 2+ armour, 5+ Parry), and if he uses two hand weapons he gets +3 attacks instead of +1. His other rule is that he must always issue/accept challenges, which takes precedence over Champion of Chaos.

Seems a pretty good choice considering how crazy cheap he is.

Possibly. My Engish-to-Spanish is pretty non existent, but I believe Faeit mirrored this page from the source a few days ago. The opposite page could be Valten, or it could be Crom's wargear. We need a good translator to work this out. On a related note, you think Crom might get a new model to replace the old Metal one?

However, it's come to my attention that the characters may not begin and end with just Crom and Valten. Do not take my word as gospel however given I just read and comment on Rumors and don't go actively seeking them out, so until a full list leaks...

EDIT - Yes, that looks like part of Valten's rules. The word "Valten" can be seen clearly if you look close enough.

Thanks for the link, I never noticed that Crom model. Very intrigued now.

Very excited for the possible return of Valten. I always thought he was a great character in his Exalted form.

Just a thought/hope. What do people think the chances may be of Teclis getting an updated model. Crom and Valten were both introduced during the Storm of Chaos (I think that was the name) campaign and Teclis had a fairly significant role in it. His current model is painfully dated.

Valten had such a poor death, I hope it's being totally retconned.
