- another picture of Boss Zagstruk
Diorama for the collectors range:
And some info:Tim Deakin, Rick Priestley, Andy Hoare, and Alessio gave the presentation. Here is what we know
40K "Mighty Empires"
Confirmed by Rick Priestly for 2009. There are resin casts of the 40K tiles such as defence lines, spaceports, bunkers and a multipart hive city. Priestly was forthcoming about the Mighty Empires 40k. It won't be seen until next year, but will be fully compatible with WFB Mighty Empires.
Army Policy Change
Instead of an army's entire miniature range being done all at one time with the codex release, additional releases for armies will be coming out over a period of time. This is happening with Orks and there is a plan to release Plaguebearers and Horrors into plastic "at some stage".
All White Dwarf production is now centrally controlled from Lenton to prevent as Rick put it "anarchy!" GW are quite aware of the lack of hobby content in the magazine and are working to address it. Rick Priestly was apparently quite vocal regarding White Dwarf policy - he seemed very concerned at the direction White Dwarf had taken. Now that the design studio had more control over the magazine he'd like to see more rules based stuff in there.
Combat Patrol/Kill Team
These are NOT in the 5th Edition rulebook. Rick Priestley mentioned that there are several supplements being worked on that will cover Kill Team etc... by Jervis and his team that would be released in the future. Rick's opinion was that as the rules are written now, it's easier to take 40k down to 500pts with the rules as they stand, unlike WFB. No details were forthcoming about Planetstrike or any other named supplement
Priestly also mentioned Dark Eldar. He's got the miniatures and the codex. He was quite keen to point out that they would be seeing 'some love' soon.
This book does have the website Datafaxes in there, but the pictures for the likes of the Khorne Tower of Skulls, Plaguetowers, etc.. are new conversions. The book is nicely presented in softback format.
Odds and Ends
There will be no new races for the forseeable future. It was said that to support the races they already have is hard enough.

On WD: ''GW are quite aware of the lack of hobby content in the magazine and are working to address it.''
OMG! GW have actually LISTENED to people! Never thought id say that...
GW have actually listened!? The End Times are upon us!
On a more serious note, that Tower of Skulls is awesome. And the unknown is potentially an Orc Warboss on Wyvern. Maybe even Azhag.
I don't know... that tower of skulls looks a little silly to me... it's basically a parade float with a tank chassis... now if it was a crawling living tower, aka Howl's Moving Castle style...
And that goblin putting up his dukes against an orc must be really really really drunk. o.O
I have to agree with Pixie after looking at it a few more times... it does seem somewhat...excessive o_o
...but quite cool at the same time. O.o
Zagstruk looks quite nicely done though.
Want to chat? You can normally find me in the LO CHAT!

Tower of skulls sucks, too much tower, not enough skulls.
A tower constructed of skulls and bones moving on giant brass wheels that churn up the ground, dragged by a thousand frenzied flagellants is what it should be! With a bloodthirster on top too!

Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids

Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
That's not what the Tower of Skulls was in epic, it was literally a tank with a skull-tower on top.
Though it needs to be topped off with a giant skull of some sort...
I'd almost say it's a Khorne-ish aquarium...but I wouldn't want to see the fish that swim in it!
