Tyranids Clash With Terminators In New Warhammer 40K Teaser

March 13, 2023 by brennon

Games Workshop dropped a new teaser over the weekend pointing towards something interesting happening with Warhammer 40,000. Could we be seeing a return to Space Hulk or will this classic match-up end up being part of Kill Team or Boarding Actions?

Getting the obvious out of the way first, the video shows off a hulking Tyranid that is staring down a Space Marine Terminator. The initial thought for a lot of folks might be Space Hulk but you don't see many white-helmeted Blood Angels Terminators out there in the world. The accompanying "poster" for the teaser might have some more clues.

White helmets tend to make me think Ultramarines and if you look closely at the shoulder pad of that Terminator, it looks like the Ultima symbol. Maybe we'll be getting some Tyrannic War vibes coming through with this new set of releases.

What Could It Be?

If we think about the teaser as if it's not Space Hulk then we can then look at some other possibilities. You've got the option that this is going to be a new Boarding Actions set that would showcase a bunch of new miniatures for this new Warhammer 40,000 gamemode. It could also be a new Kill Team option as that would work for the tight tactical battles fought in the heart of space hulks and the like.

If the rumours are to be believed, the real solution is that this is the first preview of what awaits with 10th Edition. The set has often been touted to contain new Terminator miniatures alongside a host of new Tyranids who are getting a proper range refresh as the Necrons got in 9th Edition. Going with Ultramarines is the best way to make the set open to as many Space Marine players as possible since they can be changed to represent any Chapter without much work.

So, new Space Hulk re-release? A Kill Team set? Boarding Actions options? A new edition of Warhammer 40,000?

What do you think it could be?
