It isn't cypher because that's not a pistol.
I am going with plasma blaster, same rules as we have started seeing in Forge World recently.
Tis a Fallen Angel, with a combi-Soulburner/Plasma, or perhaps a Plasmagun/PlasmaPistol alternate with choice to rapid fire or charge, or a Soulburner/PlasmaPistol.
‘Soulburner’? Just released on Forgeworlds New Stuff as a Chaos Decimator Arm upgrade – probably going to have an infantry equivalent!
Bring on the Chaos!
On the chest it looks like it is the hilt of a sword. The backpack exhusts and the shoulder pads are similar to that of azrael, but i do not blieve it to be him, but if it is, it is a mirror image.
The gun itself is not Azraels combi plasma and seems to be more ornate, possibly dating pre-heresy
Its not a fallen angel with a soulburner, fallen angels have black armor not green.
No Signature right now.
Cypher in Green armour never made sense- it was commonly considered at the time, iirc, to be a mistake made by a painter who heard Dark Angel, must be Green! It would be a major backgound change for him to be in Green armou. If he's the guy in the picture he's also gad a backpack change too...

Mauler, Mauler, Mauler, Maulerfiends!
I was thinking... There's a strong possibility that the misterious image would be a simple extra and means nothing at all in release terms?
This is the war-ravaged world of Warhammer, and there's only WAR!... and hammers.

There is nothing to say they'll stay that way as yet though, It certainly wouldn't be a huge change (keeping in mind that even the Ultramarines (Blue Techmarine and Apothecary) and Blood Angels (Red Apothecaries/Sanguinary Priests) have seen specialists painted differantly thoughout thier codex revisions). Even if they do retain the basic colourscheme, a variation to the artwork to give it a green tinting doesn't really change thier whole background.
its azrael on the spine he rocks a plasma weapon
But that looks like black armour with green lighting to me? All of the colours on that picture have a green hue.
I was wondering about Azrael as well (he also has that style of backpack, iirc), but he uses a bolter/plasma combi weapon. So unless that's getting a retcon the second accelerator chamber would tend to rule him out.
It's clearly a plasma-ception gun! Yo dawg I herd u like plasma guns...
Is it me or is his chest glowing? The bluish area above the sword hilt seems to be emanating light, rather than just reflecting it from another source.
The only marine armour that could explain light coming from the chest would be a librarian (maybe), but I'm pretty sure this guy isn't a librarian.
Well, if a new Dark Angels dex is coming out, then following the trend of all the previous Codexes, they'd have to release a bunch of new things. It'd make sense that DA would have access to crazy plasma weapons like the aforementioned Plasma Blaster. So, nothing really out there or unexpected. Just going to have to wait and see when the Codex releases.
