Default NEW Great Unclean One (salty rumour)

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212

I got a good piece of news from a friend who works out of GW in Nottingham, He claims "new GUO coming in a month, maybe 6 weeks. Its a much much bigger model, posed in a similar fashion to the FW one but seems to have Nurglings spread around the base and guts. Theres some head variations too.

Seems a legit rumour, maybe indicating some new release (a Nurgle book? like the Khorne one, inbound)
Otherwise, lack of source (a friend of mine...balls) has this rumour low on my hopes.

Highly doubt this. Nurgle already has an End Times book dedicated to them. They've had their chance.

I wish GW would give Tzeentch some love every now and again.

Their lack of love for tzeentch it's part of the greater plan of the Schemer...

Also, Nurgle had their books in Fantasy...but not in 40k, where Khorne is going to have a book for himself!

With a new BT around it would be logical to predict some new Greater Daemons. The old ones are Fine-Cast so it fits the standard slow replacement of it GW is pushing.. If its put out at the end of the End-Times 5 Book, then the next one hits when they do the 40K chaos Realise and the last one when the new WFB hits in the summer.

Or that's how I would do it.

Had their chance? GOU's aren't specific to WFB or the ET. There are rumours that each chaos god is going to get specific attention in the future.

I was not clear. I mean it makes little to no sense to release a GUO (A Nurgle centric model) during A) a period where we definitely know more models dedicated to khorne are being released and B) Why not release it during said NURGLE focussed book where it would have fit much better.

Just my opinion. I'm not against GW releasing a new GUO model it's just I think it is poorly timed.

I do agree, we could have used a GOU with that release. Wonder why they didn't do it.

There could have been issues with the molds or something production related. Maybe they opted to push one models release back instead of affecting the entire line up.

Personally I kind of doubt that scenario, I'd say they're just ramping up to replace more finecast. Bloodthirster, GUO, maybe a LOC in the summer, then theorectically a kos down the road.

sculpts for all the greater daemons were supposedly completed over a year ago,
if that is the case they are just awaiting their appointed release dates.........

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

My guess is that they'd leave it till a later date as the end times Nurgle lot included the Glotkin and the maghoth riders, which are siniliar to a GUO in terms of size, role and design. Would have been too much in the way of huge bloated lords.
I see no reason why only khorne would get it's greater daemon, with all previous daemons releases each god has recieved equal treatment. They've not all come at once, but they've been dealt with fairly.
And as has been stated j agree that it makes sense for him tk clme out as a main big kit when 40k gets the rumoured books.
