    Let's be honest. If they redo Saurus warriors they are going to redo temple guard to match. That would be a terrible move not to, for consistencies sake.

    If you assume a baseline of 1 new hero model per release, you will only ever be "meh" or pleasantly surprised if you get more.

    This does look like a possible Seraphon/Lizardmen weapon. IF it is ours, I agree with the comments about it probably being one hero model (which would fit the trend). GW likely won't make as much money if it's a model that many Lizard players already have, so it will probably be a new model. Personally, I think we have plenty of heroes, so I'd prefer an updated hero as opposed to new one, but you take what GW gives you (or doesn't). Of course, it could just be part of an Underworlds warband.

    Or it could be a Votann spear... darn you Cristhian MLR ;)

    My wild guess is an Iron Warriors character - they’re sorely lacking one.

    The Necromunda space dwarfs? That was actually what I first thought of as well.
    Somehow it looks to fragile for dwarven crafts.

    Yep, it's them.
    But must be said that i'm not sold on this hypothesis. It's too similar to already existing pieces, i hope GW will go for something different when it comes to details.

    with the new CSM incoming, it could very well be one of their things.

    It looks more "sci-fi" than fantasy, but I have no idea what this could be.

    Maybe a new 40k Space Marine Librarian in terminator armour or maybe a Squat Librarian.

    ...looks like a book press - old school tool used when rebinding old, worn books with new covers and spines.

    That can certainly be a correct assumption

    Lol. I should have said that with a question mark. I do think it fits the idea of a space dwarf. Plus, the more I look at that earlier spear rumor, the more concerned I am that it's Votann and NOT Seraphon.

    The end looks like a piece of leggo. That will hurt. Especially if the wielder can hit the soles of their feet..........
