Dwarfs/Duardin on the horizon?

Post by genso6 » Sun Dec 06, 2015 1:26 pm

Happened to stumble on a link to an unexpected find: http://www.lounge.belloflostsouls.net/s ... -a-40K-box

It seems to be a legitimate sprue, and there have been some rumors about Fyreslayers...what say you all?

I've heard a giant steam driven Imperial Knight style unit is also on the way.

oopsy! I think someone at GW failed there, it aint unheard of for GW people to put the wrong stuff in the wrong box, or even not enough, as I heard of 2 people receiving half a Land Raider in their Land Raider box, and a Tactical marine box containing a single sprue of CSM, if I recall

That is not an existing sprue though :)

Maybe it was a viral sneak peak. :D If I was this guy, I would sell the sprue on Ebay. He would make a whole bunch of money I think. :P

This is a different faction of dwarves called the Fyreslayers.

there is also a 2016 stamped onto that sprue frame

It looks legit to me*, I also wouldn't be surprised if GW deliberately put it in someone's box to help promote their stuffs. A sleeper promotion kinda thing. Sneaky but not a bad idea, definitely get people talking.








*not that I claim to know how to tell fakes from real bits :P

Yeah based on the article, it appears to be either an accidental slip in the wrong packaging too early or a sneaky promo like you said. The pics and bitz appear too crisp to be photoshopped so I'm excited for this one :lol:
