Earlier today we had a rumor that a pic was out and about showing some Jes Goodwin sketches, and that he was now working on the Imperial Guard. Well the source of the pics was found, and not only that, more information regarding Jes working on the Imperial Guard was sent in. Enjoy.

a few comments ive heard this week from GW staff have been..... ''i'm getting very excited about seeing the new imperial guard units'' and ''cant wait for codex imperial gaurd to be finished''. i do know that my favourite 40k artist Jes Goodwyn has been working on imperial guard artwork and sketches for new models recently. might be a while before we see them but i'm hoping theres something completely new and not just a remake of cadians and catachans

The imperial guard sketches are from "the gothic and the eldritch: the collected sketches of Jes Goodwin" which was published in 2001. The guard sketches themselves are from 1993 and there are more than just the 4 (although they're not in the book), some of which were used for the 2nd edition metal guard models. 

All that said, you can't discount any old sketches as Jes also make concepts for high elf reavers back in 1992 which are almost exactly what is in the isle of blood box set. 

Here are some of those pics

    1. Rumors are rumors. All we can do is report what we are hearing, and thanks to the community, we always try and get to the bottom of rumors.

      Its always hard to get rumors straight, so we do our best. Obviously we all mess up on occasion, as I did yesterday with the mornings post. (I left it up, because I am not really afraid of my mistakes and its a good reminder for me to dig a little deeper).

    2. nope, still a liar ... we just can't prove it ;) ... Kidding!

      any rumour is worth posting and investigating, that's why we come here.

    3. Yes, and is always helpful to have a entire community helping to solve the truth behind rumours...

      But if someone´s wrong, it´s not necessary to bury him alive, as Natfka always says, take it all with huge amounts of salt.

      In our blog, we say: They are always rumours, nothing confirmed!

    4. You still a liar...Terradas said it,not us.

      "I really don't know where someone took that these were new pictures and I really don't know why "la taberna de laurana blog" read and publish something we never said."

    5. Just read the previous entry and the comments...

      Terradas in Adeptus was also corrected of the old pics by another staff, and he assumed it.

      Cheers

  3. If everyone was afraid of posting something just because we can't prove that it is true, then we wouldn't ever see any rumors, and that's no fun.

    2. You mighty have the time for BS

      I really dont want to read made up Rumors.
      1 Post is enough. 2 posts about BS is just redicules.

      Just becaus hastings & Co. Are silent. We dont have to Ressort to random Peoples wishfull thinking.


      This One is clearlly made up. Why would someone use Old pics if he gets Paid for Drawing New ones? Besides oder Rumors dont Match this One at all! Theres 8 dexes or so that Need an Update more!

    3. The fact that Jes used sketches from 1992 for the island of blood models should tell you that he does and will carry on using his old sketches...

    5. Something to keep in mind was a recent comment at a GW event where a developer stated they weren't going to share much of their unseen sketches for unused design as they didn't want more little companies popping up that would fabricate based off their art.

      Follow that through to the conclusion that GW might decide to use the designs people have already seen for new models in lines before anyone else can make products based off of it.

      And lets not forget that there was some unused sketch art from the necrons second codex that went around for awhile before it was turned into something in their last book. So the idea that old sketches may get used for new product has value.

  4. You lied about a rumour omg!!!

    Wait what... rumours are called rumours because they are hearsay and not necessarily the truth...?

    Oh right... well all rumours are lies then since they are not based upon hard and fast fact.

    1. If it was true instead of a rumour, it would be called news...

  5. It's about time. Everyone says IG doesn't need a new codex. Maybe that's true, but does that keep IG players like me from *wanting* a new codex? No. And, since I already have multiples of just about every IG unit, more models would mean more money from me. So get on it, GW, screw the xenos and put out more Guard! :)

    1. The issue is other armies are in much more desperate need of a new codex. Of course you'll get Eldar/Tyranid/Tau/Ork players that are pissed off when their codex is super out-dated, and one of the strongest codices out there is already getting another.

  6. Could just be a wave to tide us over - maybe finecast stormtroopers, and a plastic Hydra.

    1. This is why IG is one of the cheapest factions to play (in the long run) our units never change!

  11. Oh, and to add.. GW almost ALWAYS use old JG sketches for new product, where the sketches exist. He did, afterall set the tone for the GrimDark aesthetics from near the very beginning.. he's been at it a very long time, and there's literally hundreds of his sketches still making their way into modern casts..(both Citadel and FW).
    And to the fella who asked why he/they would be using his old sketches when he's paid to make new ones, I ask 'why not'? As mentioned, he did set the aesthetics in the first instance, many have still to be used, and foremost - they are CONCEPT sketches.. initial concept designs to draw from when making new (3D computer models, in the modern era), final draft sketches for mould creation in new model release..

  12. Interesting stuff, I love to see some guard models. Also a new regiment particularly necromunda could be awesome!
