The Deathwatch release is awesome, but what surprises me is that the Eldar teasers are connected to it. I thought that they tied to the rumours of a new Rubric Marine release, the War for the Black Library. But perhaps not...

From War of Sigmar:
Beat me to it.

Also, goddamnit GW. I've just bought £240 worth of Sylvaneth, and now you're bringing the Deathwatch back! Have you not taken enough of my money this month?!

Anyway of knowing how much Death Masque costs yet?

Speaking of money, via Atia:

$150 huh. Means around £90-£110, so for me that means £67.50-£82.50...

Can't do it. Not this month, not after buying an entire Sylvaneth army with Codex and the General's Handbook. And the books I wanted this month as well.

Checked my financials and it seems like September at the earliest will be when I can get Death Masque. GW might have run out by then but my local Travelling Man stocks the workshop board games, they still have copies of Deathwatch: Overkill, Betrayal at Calth and Assassinorum: Execution Force. So I should be able to get a copy from there, not as cheaply as getting it on Triple Helix but still cheaper than GW.

I hope that they are selling that Inquisitor in power armor separately.

I'm liking everything I'm seeing here. The weapons, the characters, the flyer, all look very nice and suitably specialist. Delighted to see Capt. Artemis make a 40k debut after so many years in the Inquisitor wilderness. They even kept the same pose. Very cool.

At this point there's a ton of fluff leaks and I don't have the time to copy/paste them all here but the moment I see rules I'll get them over here. Personally I'm already looking past this 'cuz I don't care much for Deathwatch or Eldar, but this in general seems to be a pivotal move forward in the timeline of 40k and that means interesting things for everyone.

Death Masque is available for pre-order at £95.

To be honest, not very impressed. The sprue images are there and yet again GW have missed a golden opportunity with the Deathwatch and given us shoulderpads with chapter iconography already carved into them, which is unfortunate. Not everybody wants to have a Kill-Team comprised of First Founding Chapters with a token Second Founding guy in the back, but these bits offer you no other choice.

I would much rather see bare shoulderpads and have a multi-chapter transfer sheet available so that we can pick out which chapters we want represented in our Kill-Teams rather than GW picking them out for us. Other than that the figures are nice, but not enough for me to pick them up.

I hope that they are selling that Inquisitor in power armor separately.
You got your wish, that figure isn't in the boxset.

There's very likely still going to be a DW upgrade sprue, we haven't seen pictures but it's a part of this as well. Otherwise where the fuck are those Terminator pads coming from?

Best part of the release for me is those new marine torso backs that come with packs and knives already attached and in a respectable scale (not those stupid little bits that come with the Tactical box). Makes me look at my swathe of marine models with even more disdain than I already do :laugh:

Oh thank god! I hate those parts too, especially on my Stormcast and 30k Marines. Glad to know that if I make a Watch Company I won't have to deal with that crap again.
