Default Tu'shan weapons set

Don't know if any of you guys have seen this, but in the latest white dwarf (the one with the 40K hammer on the front cover), theres a picture of a bit of the design studio (i think) and you can see a picture of a large space marine character holding twin thunder-hammers. Could this be Tu'shan? lol

Forgive my ignorance, but who is Tu'Shan? A primarch or chapter-master of some sort? :P

Current chapter master of the Salamanders, and new special character in the new SM dex.

I can't say it looks definitively like a Salamander character other than the fact he's holding two hammers. He seems to have a big crest on his helmet that looks more Ultramarine Honor Guard than Salamander. If it isn't him you can pretty much count on some sort of picture of him being in the codex.

I know, to be honest i wasn't sure about the idea of two thunderhammers...i think the idea is that he strikes in initiative order though, coz he's so strong ;D

You're probably going to get the option to give a specialisty or character dual thunder hammers, due to the "you only get +1 Attack if you carry two" rule that applies to TH, PF and LC. Just a guess, like...

I just had a thought....does that you only get +1a work with Deamon hammers since you can only have one per army anyway?
