End Times 4: Skaven Incoming ! Veminlord sighted

So it is Skaven Next up! Verminlord in 5 incarnations sighted

First pics from the White Dwarf have leaked and advance order is open on the GW site:

Pete and Hamish lick your chops ! Verminlord options x 5, as big as Nagash. On the picture you can just make out Nagash's Sceptre and Spirit hots. That gives you an idea of the size of the Verminlord.

White Dwarf cover and the massive Verminlord, which is  one of 5 different builds from the Verminlord kit:

"Verminlords are living icons of ruin; towering figures possessed of raw power and feral savagery. As avatars of the Horned Rat they can call upon fell energies, manipulating the weak-willed into doing almost anything they will.

 Towering over the rest of the Skaven range, this is a fantastic centrepiece miniature that oozes menace.

 This multi-part plastic kit can be made one of five distinct Verminlords. Whichever one you choose to assemble, the legs and body are used as the core to then add the following details to:

 Verminlord Warbringer is armed with a doom glaive and punch-dagger and is notable for featuring a spiked helmet.

 Verminlord Warpseer is armed with a doom glaive and scry-orb.

 Verminlord Deceiver is armed with a doomstar (in the shape of the Clan Eshin rune) and a warpstiletto. It’s head wears a mask and hood to hide its features.

 Verminlord Corruptor is armed with 2 plaguereapers. It has a skull head with broken horns and a mane of long hair.

 Skreech Verminking is armed with a plaguereaper and a doom glaive and has a unique half rotten face.

 The Verminlord has 61 components and is supplied with a 60x100mm monster base.

....Now lets wait for the stats...

The new Vermin Lord is as large as the Nagash model judging from the pics

The January release schedule is as follows:

10th (preorders Fri 2nd) is the new Vermin Lord

17th Thanquol End Times book and model

24th new unit, armoured rat ogres called Stormfiends plus clam pack Warlord and Grey Seer and re release of old Warlock Engineers

Stat Rumours ex Faeit 212:
Verminlord Deceiver is one of the builds from the new kit. He is a level 4 wizard that must have Skitterleap as one of his spells. Crazy number of rules. Immune to psychology, terror, scurry away, large target. He has a 5+ ward save, is a Rat Daemon with Daemonic Attacks, which makes all his attacks magical.

He can re-roll casting for skitterleap and all shooting attacks against him are at a -1.

He has a stiletto that is armour piercing and poisoned and a ranged weapon 12" that has poisoned attacks, quick to fire, and arced attacks, meaning he gets as many shots as what is in the first rank of the unit being targeted.

I'm sure you have seen the pictures by now, but he is huge with 6 wounds and a toughness of 6. Definitely crazy.

We saw the new cover art for End times 4. It's rat caster riding some Monster with a cannon. (Sorry not to familiar with skaven)

Plastic Vermin Lord to make 5 different kits: White dwarf 2 weeks from now will feature the release of a plastic vermin lord kit, will make 5 alternate models with different themes:

1. Eshin, 1 Grey Seer, 1 Warlord, 1 Moulder and one supposed "Vermin King".

Eshin one can be skitterleapt and gets re-rolls to cast skitterleap, grey seer one always gets 6 on the d6+1 part of warp lightning casts. No further information about the others or point costs, but allegedly he's going to be about the same dimensions as Nagash.

"Came the rules of the Great Deceiver infested, one of the five options of assembly for this new kit. Not everyone knows the rules in English, so let's see the translation.  Unfortunately there is a word not visible due to the reflection of light on the page, but it's just the name of a magic weapon, then you will not find a rule truncated."

English Tranlation (LOL: Google Translate, so you will need to "read between the lines" when the English gets wierd)
