From Natfka this morning. I REALLY want this Broodlord, but I already have a bazillion Genestealers, and I am more than good for Warriors and 'fexes. If the Warriors included the new Prime options, that would be a little more attractive. But still, .......
I already use a Space Hulk Broodlord as my primary one, it is so much better than the old metal/finecrap one, and it is an awesome model in its own right. But for those of you who have not seen the new one, below are a couple of pictures. It is clearly based on the SH one, but if you compare it in the second pic (below the Warriors) to the 'Fex (immediately to the left of the Warriors), it has obviously been scaled up a tad!
And I am assuming that, like the Ork-Space Wolves set in the summer, this will be a limited release. The accompanying 2-volume Shield of Baal: Leviathan hardcover set sold out out in a matter of hours last week.

It surprises me (sort of) that such a decent Blood Angels release would come BEFORE a new Codex.....

I'm not so sure, can't see the death company and dread being new models, the ones they have are really good already, so you're limited to a new terminator captain, and possibly new terminators. Let's not forget that some of our new stuff beat the codex to the shelves too, so I'd look at that as positive for an imminent Blood Angels release (another of my armies).

Same thing happened to the Wolves for the Stormclaw box, right? Came out right after Orks and right before Wolves. This one comes after a Nids...sorta 2nd wave and right before what is likely to be BA - seems to make sense.

I'll probably get it as I have a BA army and a friend has Nids plus I want the mini rulebook.
