New Warhammer 40K Preview To Feature Orks & Tyranids?

July 5, 2021 by brennon

Another week and another Games Workshop preview coming this Saturday. The Octarius Mission Briefing is going to be hitting on 10th July 6pm BST and promises to feature something fun for Warhammer 40,000 Ork collectors.

The focus shifts to the Octarius Sector of the new, fractured Imperium where the Orks have a big presence. They have spent much of their time tackling the mighty Hive Fleet Leviathan but it appears as if this might be their chance to go start more wars elsewhere.

What does that mean? Well, one would imagine that we're going to be getting a very in-depth look at the new Ork miniatures we've been promised. Beast Snaggas can't be far off and I would guess we'll see new Ork Boyz and characters too.

With the sector being home to an exceptionally large Tyranid presence, it would also be good to see some new miniatures for them too. We've seen them expand the ranges for those involved in previous sector conflicts so it would be a safe bet to say we're getting new critters.

These previews tend to look ahead but not too far. Hopefully, this means that we'll get a glimpse of the new Orks and then pre-orders for them a couple of weeks to a month down the line. July seems given over to The Mortal Realms so perhaps we'll see Orks in August? Maybe Games Workshop will actually keep up with the times and do the release during Orktober?
