While it would not surprise me that gw would ignore the xenos armies, I think Eldar will be soon. A lot of Eldar stuff is temporarily out of stock, so I'm guessing there will be a big "Aeldari" rebranding exercise soon. Uggghhh "Aeldari"...gross.

It's clear to me that GW wants to focus on Imperium and Chaos before Xenos so it's very likely that this year's releases are all Imperium and Chaos so Xenos might have to wait for next year for they turn on spotlight. Currently spotlight is on Imperium and Chaos as well as they ongoing conflict. I think that from Xenos Eldar are most likely to be first considering how important they role in story has been. After all for one they had big part in Gary Stu Roboute Guilliman's return.

White Dwarf had some Death Guard pics in it, including their new tank! Also had some good shots of Mortarion (who will be $170 CAD :O)

That tank looks rather interesting but still I am not convinced by that new Mortarion.

That anniversary model is still hilariously underwhelming. They deleted the Facebook post about it because of the backlash, I'm still baffled by how wrong they got it.

At that point, it's almost a joke. :P I don't think they realised how divided is the community about the primaris marines.

They don't realise that they show in the same time that they can do new great stuff without primaris. All the new death guard models ( even the terminators we can see on one of the last picture in the warhammer community article about the futur codex ) are great , full of details, diverse, and still based on the regular marines ( even if they did them a bit taller that's not primaris ! ) . So they can do it if they want to.

The main issue is alot of models available are very dated and dreaded finecast. Chaos/Eldar to name two main factions who need plastic models and some revamp.

Nurgle marines needed a revamp since khorne get alot of love and tzeentch got a make over. Hopefully slaanesh isnt far behind.

Im guessing other primatchs are going to pop up

In b4 zerkers are old, Khorne has amazing options for kitbashing with the fantasy range, with very little effort you can make kickass bezerkers.

I don't mind primaris marines as much, I iind of prefer the larger difference between marines and normal humans like IG and cultists.

New models for chaos and eldar would be nice though!

So Xenos do get some love during this year after all. It will surely make Eldar and Nid players happy that they faction wasn't ignored.
