Rumor STATUS

Example:
WOC - May 2012
New Sorceror in Plastic
October WOC Release

Definitions:
TRUE - This happened as they said.
FALSE - This did not happen as they said. This will include rumors that are solely date based (i.e. Tau will be out next month) but not rumors that include a date (Tau has X, Y and Z being released. Pretty sure that'll be out next month.)
WRONG DATE - This has not happened when they said but includes rumors beyond date of release
PARTIALLY TRUE/ TOO VAGUE - Either close but not really true or cannot assess whether this happened or not.
- Has not come to pass yet.
DUPLICATE - Either that rumor monger already said it or it is clearly a duplication of another rumor monger with no new information.
SPECULATION - No Rumor, just speculation.
ALREADY TRUE - No rumor, just restating already existing items. (i.e. Lothern Sea Guard will be Core)

UPDATE:
We have now standardized the titles for each rumor set to make it easier to search things out. Current used tags are spoilered here:

From a 'confirmation' standpoint, the only confirmation that we will use for the veracity of rumors is an official GW release. So even if we see the WD or a price list or leak or whatever, the rumor monger doesn't get a TRUE/FALSE until GW says something.

I also stop counting new rumors once the first WD scans pop out. So no credit for just reading the WD once everyone has it.

Also, if I mess up categorizing, coding or listing something, please post in the thread or PM me.

Spoiler:

Eldar Rumors - Jan 2017
From 4chan, so pretty much totally unreliable, but it is a rumour of sorts...

I have see eldar boxes today, although I have not been able to make any photos, I have not been alone while leaving the boxes from the truck, but while working on the truck, they opened some

Asdrubael Vect it's on a grav plataform and the platform looks like the image of rumour engine, the same box also brings 2 incubi but are very different from the current ones as with thicker armor, but none of the 3 miniatures look like the image of the red eldar of fall of cadia. FALSE

There were other boxes containing larger boxes inside, but I've only seen a little piece of the side, in which an female eldar in a yellow and blue gown with the name ...of Iyanden (I could not see it all) under the portrait, the box was large so i guess that will contain more miniatures since it is bigger than the box of vect FALSE

Specialist Game Rumors - Jan 2017
Per /tg/ so may not be reliable:

"Gang of Commorragh only includes a gang of reavers of commorragh (3) & gang of feral hellions (5), 2 ruler, pack of dice, 3 spike of commorragh (little 3d carton scenery like towers), pack of cards and 48 page rulebook. TRUE

Poster says that it will be accompanied by three releases:
Hierophant / Viciator Kit (WOW!) FALSE
Zoanthrope / Venomthrope Kit FALSE
Pyrovore / Biovore Kit FALSE

Viciator?s are bio-titans similar in stature to Hierophants. Their carapace is covered in grizzly barbs and hooks and their long legs help them stride across the battlefield. Hanging under their thorax is a large devourer weapon-symbiote, as the Viciator lurches forward thousands upon thousands of worms are coaxed out of the weapon by powerful bio-electric jolts. Viciator?s have a terrifiying fanged maw, with-in resides a symbiote that could be more dangerous than the brainleech worms it harbours. A strange creature is bound inside its mouth, and when opened, the beast will shoot concentrated blasts of acid that can chew through armour with ease. Vehicles that the worms are unable to penetrate are often given an entrance after this weapon symbiote melts a hole through its hull. FALSE

Dark Eldar Rumors - Sept 2014
via a reader on Faeit 212
Just listened to this weeks 40K Radio podcast - and they mention briefly that Dark Eldar are confirmed for pre-release next weekend (20th) and release in two weekends (27th). TRUE

They follow it up with their usual caveat of "this is not a fact", but also joke that "everything that is not designated a fact is, ultimately, a fact".


Ok, it seems a nasty rumor is making its way around the interwebs. Many forums are saying 40k 7th is switching over to % based lists. We are here to 100% confirm that is not happening. TRUE

We have always told you guys the truth about everything in the past 12 months. Our source has been spot on with everything from release schedules to what each army will have.

So please rest easy knowing that force org will still be in the game.

These are facts, not rumors from your trusted source for insider 40k news, not 40krumors.

IG Rumors - Jan 2014
Ok some more news. There was a slight misunderstanding of the new IG name....Astra Militarum. No extra "I" in there. And from our source there will be a mix of Cadian and Catachan releases for Astra Militarum. So tHigh Elf Rumors of Catachans going away would appear to be incorrect. TRUE

IG Rumors / Knight Rumors / Wood Elf Rumors - Jan 2014
via Lion 275 on Warseer
IG will be in April. March will focus soley on the Imperial Knights. Followed by Wood Elves in May... TRUE

It sounds like Imperial Knights will be a Dataslate or a mini codex. I bet you see it in the WD then have it come out in Dataslate/mini dex. From what we were told it will not be in the IG codex and will be able to ally with various armies. DUPLICATE

IG is getting a new name with their new codex a la SoB. According to 40K Radio's source, they'll be renamed to the Astra Militarium. TRUE

Yup a brand new name. The book is called Astra Militarium. DUPLICATE

I am just going by what our source has told us. Could be a legal issue, could be they are incorporating more things into the Codex. Time will tell.

And I want to re-iterate Knight ARE NOT part of Astra Militarium (IG). TRUE

IG Rumors / Knight Rumors - Feb 2014
Imperial Knight Titan: 1 kit will make all the versions. TRUE

Imperial Knight Titan Codex: Three armies in this book.
1st Army: Imperial Knights Army TRUE
2nd Army: Mechanicum Army FALSE
3rd Army: Freeblades Army (Mercs that can ally) PARTIALLY TRUE

Warhammer 40k 7th Edition (Yes it is called 7th ed) in May.

Astra Militarium (Imperial Guard):
Stormtroopers (plastic) TRUE
Bullgryns (old Ogryns) DUPLICATE
Commissar Squads FALSE
New Larger Transport TRUE

Stormtroopers, Commissar Squads, and Bullgryns are Astra Auxilary. These units may be taken as "plug-ins" to other Imperial armies. FALSE

Catachans and Cadians are covered in the new codex. Catachans are not going to direct only. TRUE

Orks are in June. DUPLICATE

IG Rumors
via Rik on 40k Radio
So some exciting news. A listener of ours was at a GW store today that mistakenly received a shipment of some unreleased items. It was the plastic Ogryn kit. The rename is confirmed as they were called Militarum Auxillia. Boom! Nailed it. PARTIALLY TRUE

Space Marines Rumors - Feb 2014
I prefer GW's made up Latin to what they have now. I can't wait until they re-brand Space Marines as Adeptus Astartes... From what our source told us Space Marines will get a name change in the future. FALSE

Ork Rumors - Jan 2014
Orks are due in June and not September. TRUE

7th edition Rumors - Jan 2014

On the Chaos Space Marine Releases. 1) Look for the stuff to be released beginning of summer. TRUE
2) Crimson Slaughter(CSM in the DV starter) might receive a Supplement as well. TRUE

Knight Rumors - Jan 2014
As you may have seen on other sites Febraury is all about the Dwarfs. So for you fans of the short and bearded get pumped. March will see the release of Imperial Knights. This year is shaping up to be a good one. DUPLICATE
We believe it will be release through the new WD format. The week of the Release, you will get the rules in the WD. TRUE

7th Edition Rumors - Dec 2013
The big 40k rumor is: This summer GW will release 7th edition 40k , TRUE

They way it was explained to us is that 7th Edition will be made to include the new Escalation and Stronghold rules. I would also not be surprised to see the Dataslates added to the main rule book. TRUE

Dark Elf Rumors - Sep 2013
- Warlocks appear to have one hand weapon TRUE
- The new chariot crew is armed with spears and what looks to be a large crossbow or bolt thrower on the chariot. TRUE
- The new Warriors look quite different to me. But then again I am a big geek that notices stuff like that. They have cloaks that come down their back and all the helmets don't cover the eyes any more. TRUE
- The warlocks are bare chested, and the weapons look mundane...aka not glowing. They look like large jagged daggers. They are held in reverse grips which looks pretty slick. The warlock champions eyes are glowing which IMO hints at some magical abilities. md as far as the warriors go I think a big difference will be the size of them. Look at the size difference between Isle of Blood Lothern Sea Guard and the normal High Elves spearman. TRUE
- (Hydra) It looks bigger and beefier. Like we said Dark Elves are setting the bar for the best range of models in WHFB. TRUE
- The cloaks hang down from underneath the shoulder armor and cover the back of the chain mail. It definitely is new for them but it looks really cool. The Druchii warriors also have shoulder armor. It makes them look simply awesome. The skull embossed on their shields looks great too. Yes the Hydra does have 2 handlers. TRUE
- The Warriors, Black Guard, and Dark Riders all have cloaks. None of them appear to have face coverings. The Executioners appear to have skull faced helms. The theme to me appears to be a more sinister version of their High Elf bretheren. The plate armor has very spiked and jagged edges. The style will still fit well with the Shades and Reaper but next to these new models they will look very dated. TRUE
-The Kraken has 5 heads/fanged maws. The have spines and scales with smooth neck and belly flesh. Scales are painted a Dark Grey with the softer flesh painted blue. Looks awesome. TRUE
-The pictures we have of the Witch Elves has them with two hand weapons. TRUE
-Black Guard look very stalwart with large halberds and high helms with 3 spikes on each side with a flowing plume on top. Their armor is black trimmed in gold and they have dark purple cloaks. The unit champion is holding a sword by the hilt with the blade planted in the ground. Musician is a drummer. TRUE
-The executioners have what look like skull helms, and their armor is a brighter silver than the Black Guard. Their tunics are red in color and the Draiches are all held on the left hand side of their bodies (their left our right). They look very cool ranked up. TRUE
- The Dark Riders are very cool looking. Sleek looking horses with only a bit of armor. All of the Riders are hunched over in the saddle to give the illusion of speeding fast cav. The helmets appear to be open faced and they are armed with spears in the picture I have, once again that doesn't mean they wont get crossbows (in the pictures we have they are in the back ground behind the Warlocks). TRUE
- The Kraken doesn't have tentacles, it has four legs with webbed appendages ending in claws and it also has a tail. TRUE
- The Cauldron of Blood/Blood Throne look very cool. If you are a fan of the newer larger models GW has been putting out for WHFB you will really dig it. It is a bit toned down compared to the Empire Celestial Hurricanum/Luminark of Hysh and has blades and hooks on it to make it very sinister and Dark Elf. TRUE
- Execs use swords (phew!). TRUE
- Black Guards look "amazing", with bulkier shoulders and tall helmets with plumes, so I guess pretty much like they look now (in that respect at least). TRUE
- The Cauldron has six wheels and two staircases leading up to the platform with the big statue of Khaine. It is not pulled by anything, so maybe (my assumption it will be used like the Screaming Bell? Three Witch Elves on it, lots of spikes and blades. TRUE
- The Witch Elves have loincloths and bras (obviously) and look "vicious". TRUE
- On the Throne, there is something that looks like half-Witch Elf, half Medusa, with snakes as hair. TRUE
- The new Hydra is beefier than the current one. DUPLICATE
- And the WEs on the Throne use spears. TRUE
- Warlocks are bare-chested, with long flowing hair, painted white. They seem to have black eyes (or no eyes), except for the champion, whose eyes are glowing. Dark Riders are cloaked (of course), and hunched over in the saddle, in order to present a low profile. TRUE


Dark Elf Rumors - Sep 2013
NEW RUMORS for Warhammer Fantasy! My "source" has sent me pictures of the new Dark Elf release. The Dark Elves will be out in October with a slew of new models:

1) NEW Plastic Dark Elf Warrior Box(Makes Spearmen, swordsmen, & crossbowmen) TRUE
2) NEW PLastic Dark Riders/Warlocks TRUE
3) NEW Plastic Blackguard/Executioners TRUE
4) NEW Plastic Coldone Chariot/Scroungerunner(Pulled by horses) TRUE
5) NEW Plastic Cauldron of Blood/Blood Throne(This model is AMAZING) TRUE
6) NEW Plastic Hydra/Kraken TRUE
7) NEW Plastic Witch Elf box TRUE

Space Marines Rumors - August 2013
"Centurions: The guys are a heavy support choice. They're a marine cased in heavy armor with powerfist with lascannons under slung on one pic and heavy bolters on the other. Think of a heavier terminator armor that a marine straps into. I think this is where Chaos Oblits came from. They look to be on 40mm and I'm really starting to dig these models. TRUE

Plastic Chaplain: Like other plastic HQ's that have come out. He is armed with a Crozius and bolt pistol. He has ornate armor and he is in a dynamic pose. TRUE

Plastic Librarian: Same as above regarding previous HQ releases. He is helmetless and he's armed with a staff. He also has a wicked cherub flying off his pack pack. I really like this model. TRUE

The Hunter: I believe this will be anti-air rhino. Its a cross between Vindicator Heavy Armor and a whirlwind style weapon mounted on the back. It comes with two cannons that have three barrels. TRUE

Vanguard Plastic: I saw two separate pics one armed with TH/SS and one with a pair of Lighting claws, finally. Same Marine bodies just with some new iconography to freshen up the models. TRUE

From what I have seen so far the Marine release is going to be huge for GW. Sorry about no pics but I promised."

Age of Sigmar Rumors - Sept 2016
Lastly I will say the next 24 months have some very interesting stuff planned out for 40k at least, I don't know about AoS beyond new Skaven minis are due at some point and also the LoC (which will be released alongside the 40k rubric marines but will obviously be for AoS too), TRUE
and also some great boxed games. I hope the new direction brings GW back into many hobbyists homes as I do believe they are trying and now seem to actually want people to buy, which is good. TRUE


PENDING 40k Rumors - Sept 2016
None at all sorry. There are other 40k things too..... new plague army,
rubric marines TRUE & LoC etc. etc. but I have no idea when any of it is due out. I was expecting the GS Cult codex to hit by end of 2016 but I'm not so sure now.


PENDING 40k Rumors - Sept 2016
Looks good. I'm looking forward to seeing Magnus TRUE , Angron, Mortarion, Russ & Guilliman TRUE now

Board Game Release - Mar 2016

Who's ready to enter the great silver tower of Tzeentch? TRUE

Maybe more a hybrid quest/pitfight TRUE


Specialist Game Rumors - Nov 2015
When I said Bram was spot on I was referring to the fact that SG will not be how it used to be. This team will almost be like a FFG within FW producing our old favourites, not everything is a board game, imagine other classic tabletop games getting an update, doesn't mean they have to change into a boardgame format. Specialist Games ARE coming back, only with a slightly different name with an updated product and not under the direct (incompetent) control of GW. TRUE

PENDING Specialist Game Rumors - Nov 2015
AFAIK the scope is pretty big, just don't be expecting things overnight, my understanding is we are still a few months out from seeing anything yet. Def full blown epic armies, not sure about how much will be plastic and how much will be resin. I expect rules to be updated where needed. Do not expect to see old sculpts unless they are classics.


I have not heard warmaster discussed, however do not discount it, this is currently in it's infancy. The HH box seems to be well received and not too bad of a price point when you compare the equivalent cost of the minis and the fact there is also a standalone game in there. I don't expect any of it will be "cheap" but it will be more accessible. As I understand it Epic & BB are quite high up the list of priorities.


Originally Posted by BramGaunt
So I'm guessing it will be different from what we are expecting. What we are expecting is a return to how 'specialist games' were run, but what we are probably getting is a branch akin to Fantasy Flight Games that produces GW License board games that double as miniature games.
Hastings: Indeed, pretty much spot on mate :-)


Horus Heresy Rumors - Oct 2015
via 75hastings69 10-28-2015

The Plan for Horus Heresy
“As I said back in February standalone HH game. Later develops into a main 30k range to replace hobbit on store shelves.

Q: Ok, so this will become an actual miniatures game and not be restricted solely to being a board game? TRUE
A: That’s what I was told yes. Not sure on timeframe, but all so far is going exactly as I was told and posted.

Horus Heresy Rumors - Oct 2015
I'd disagree with some that

I don't think the timeframe allows for GW to be responsive to sales of HH for the first thing. For the second point my source (who gave me the info in January) had already seen boxes with the 30k logo on printed some boxes had 30k & 40k logos on, as I reported in February. I will not go into specifics as to what these kits were, but they are obviously worked on already if the boxes are done DUPLICATE

Very rare GW change the order of their releases, I've known it happen only twice during my entire time in the hobby.

The plan is for 30k to replace LotR on the store shelves, that plan and the releases AFTER HH standalone box is already WELL into the production time cycle. So I would dispute that anyone else/any other site who DOES know what these printed boxes was IS NOT lying, my source certainly knows...... and so do I. DUPLICATE


PENDING 40k Rumors - July 2015
via Hastings on Warseer
I have said I was told that Codexes (Codices? how the hell do you do the plural of Codex anyway???) would be gone within 2 years. That might mean the rules for each unit are included in the boxes/free on the net/wd etc.

I do think that 40k rules will become more simplified, why? because GW don't want to focus on making games systems/rules anymore, they purely want to sell models. I do not doubt for one second that they (the main 40k rules) "COULD" become like AoS, but that is my personal opinion, and as I openly said that was me jumping to the conclusion based on how easily they destroyed their longest game world in favour of making more money.

I think rather than being of any use at all this thread is purely scaremongering and misleading. The death of the codex doesn't mean the end of 40k, the death of the army book in WFB was because AoS had ALREADY killed WFB, and AoS had no place for army books.



I could send you PMs over 3 years old discussing the demise of WFB would that suit? In fact if you care to look you WILL find discussions on the fantasy threads about the demise of army books and rolling them into smaller groups of armies (i.e. order, Destruction etc.) think they were by Harry though as well as myself.

Having known MANY people at GW for MANY years I can tell you without any shadow of doubt that things two years out are not unknown quantities to some members of GW. When I was right in the thick of the rumour mill some years back the occasional eagle eyed viewer might even have seen unreleased models in the background of pictures on my painting logs MANY MONTHS before they were released. I was sat happily reading the WoC army book 5 months before it was released, almost 6 months before for the O&G one, so please don't figure to assume that no one knows anything and they're just fishing, some people know a great deal, what they chose to share is entirely different.

Seriously GW don't do things on a whim, whatever is going to happen to 40k WILL already be well progressed, just no-one hears about it until the last minute.

Also not to be picky but my original post say WITHIN 2 years.

Also, the rumoured starter set was two praetors, 40 marines, 10 terminators and 2 contemptors. It looks like the two praetors have been spotted. Still struggle to believe they would include all that in one starter, at least not at the £75 range.

I don't think it was 40 marines, for some reason I thought it was 30. But the other figures look right. FALSE

Makes me wonder will there be a full cataphractii terminator squad kit.

Yes, as per my post 15th Feb FALSE

Horus Heresy Rumors - July 2015
I don't know TBH, I'll share what I have heard, but this dates back a while as I pay very little interest to GW now.

I heard that 30k HH would be a boxed standalone game (like execution force was) TRUE
and that the plastics contained within it would go on to form part of a larger 30k range and would be released some time later as individual box sets/clampacks, I was told that rules would be in those boxes, but that some boxes would contain rules for 30k AND 40k (and these boxes have BOTH logos on - yes there is a new 30k logo) so I assume it will be using a different ruleset to 40k (as there would be no point having rules for both systems in boxes if they were both the same). TRUE
I was also told the plastic assassins would get clampack releases later and be released as part of the main 40k range..... as the box set is pretty much still quite widely available I don't expect this to be soon, although I never had a timeframe in the first case. TRUE

As for your AoS style rule reboot question - I remember being told to expect 40k codexes (codices?) to be a thing of the past within 2 years, and that the rules would be in the box for each model/unit, but there would still be a core ruleset which the in box rules would obviously add to. I've not bought any AoS releases (nor do I intend to) so I don't know if they have rules in the boxes (seems daft as when rules got FAQ'd (lol) or changed they'd need to repack ALL the boxes - seems even dafter that anything would actually bother with rules for AoS!!) or just online? I am going to leap to the conclusion that 40k probably WILL become more simplified like AoS, mainly because GW no longer see themselves as rules/games writers but just model sellers. How much more simplified I wouldn't hazard a guess at. Whatever they decide to do you can bet it's in the pipeline already, because myself and Harry were privately discussing the changes to WFB almost 3 years ago - I was told it was being canned and whilst we thought that was not the case and that AoS would be a continuation or refresh of it WFB HAS actually been canned and REPLACED by AoS, so these things are planned well ahead.

FW make huge sales from HH, there was no way that GW weren't going to want in on the action! I expect FW to still produce the big kits/characters/customising kits but GW will provide the bulk of the models needed to play 30k. We can only hope that GW let FW handle the 30k rules/books and they just make the models for it. But keep in mind I was told that when the 30k RANGE hits the stores (not the standalone box game but the actual range) it will take over the store space that used to be taken up by LotR/Hobbit, so GW may want to keep tight hold of the reigns even though they are no longer committed to producing games?

That's probably done very little to answer you, but it's the best I can manage and hopefully slightly informative if only a repost of what I wrote in January.

Indeed. Maybe those are the 2 characters from the starter/standalone box that might only be available in that box...... or something

*EDIT.

Having thought about this I think the unit/model rules for 30k & 40k will be online/WD rather than actually inside the box kits (I may have misinterpreted what my source said).

Also I should point out that as I understand it 40k and 30k will be very different games/rulesets, so it may be that 40k becomes like AoS and 30k is handled by FW (although this is just wishful thinking on the behalf of hobbyists the world over!).

Of course I may be completely wrong...... because that happens a lot
Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - June 2015
75hastings69 on Warseer
AFAIK, the box AoS is the first in several weeks worth of releases for fantasy, and the actual BRB comes soon after the AoS box FALSE

And THIS is the reason that WFB as we knew it is gone, because it isn't selling. So they either scrap it completely, or try something new in a fantasy setting. If you for one moment that success of this game means existing WFB players buy it then you are very mistaken, if only all existing WFB players buy it then it has failed already!!!!

Nobody listens to angry vets who form a customer base that isn't perfoming well enough in terms of buying to sustain the current model.

If people see something and it's cool they'll buy it. It's a gamble on GWs behalf to revive a dying fantasy customer base, they could do it better with advertising and reduce the risk of this failing, but hey this is GW...

Fantasy used to do well, back when GW didn't have much in the way of competition, now they do, they have competition that do it better and in most cases cheaper, sure the competition might not be to everyones taste BUT ITS AN ALTERNATIVE, this has been the sole biggest reason for GWs falling sales (well that and their pricing policies are based back in a time when they could pretty much do what they want - but they're all too stupid to see that times and indeed the landscape of tabletop gaming have changed & evolved. I myself have spent my money on other companies since finescat, and I will openly admit I used to be a huge GW fanboy, my eyes have since been opened to the wonderous variety currently available, and truth is I no longer need or even want GW

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - June 2015
No.

As far as I understand AoS is a skirmish level game, FALSE
pretty light on rules, a stand alone entry level game. What comes after is different,TRUE full ruleset for bigger battles with all the fluff, artwork etc.

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - June 2015

The way I understand it AoS is a standalone skirmish game, the 'rules' included with it as my pastry based friend has already said multiple times are minimal. I then understand that the Rulebooks that come later deal with expanding the base game of AoS in every way in which you would imagine a GW product to do, upscale the battles, further the fluff, detail the world(s) & protaganists, lots of artwork etc. DUPLICATE

I think rather than anyone being "wrong" there are 2 separate products here that are being merged into 1 topic.

Of course, the parts I am hearing about could just be rumour reverb from the post on Dakka???

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - May 2015
Harry, Arthurius11 and Hastings have posted several hints that this game called Age of Sigmar is going to be a smaller affair than the mass-battle game WFB used to be in 8th. The rumor tracker has their posts. DUPLICATE

It's basically more of a skirmish (low model count) game. DUPLICATE
The box contains a small rulebook with less pages than usual (at least that's what I understood reading Harry's latest posts regarding the rulebook) and two forces. SPECULATION

It is rumored to be 'human warriors' (a Sigmarite Knightly Order?) vs Chaos Warriors and Daemons of Khorne. TRUE Rules for the units are included in the box. And some scenarios. Calling it an introductory set (for new players but also to the new setting for us veterans) seems to be a fitting description of it. TRUE

The last posts from Hastings on WS mentioned new building kits to be released in the near future. The removal of several WFB buildings like the fortress seems to back this up. And Hastings can be trusted anyway. TRUE

The tracker has lots of good WFB rumors collected - if you focus mostly on these three.

As I originally said.....

The box sets are stand alone games, the models will then form part of the main ranges. That's exactly what I said months ago. The replacement for lotr will be 30k not the h/h standalone game. TRUE

There were no grey areas, no hidden gems of info just the facts. its really not that difficult to understand.

Obviously I'm just speculating here.... right

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - Feb 2015
via 75hastings69 on Warseer
You know I'm not actually sure it is that depressing, as it is WFB doesn't sell well enough to be supported in its current format, that much is proven by the need to change it, so the options are, they keep WFB as is and run it into the ground and it dies, every army is squatted as well as future support/releases etc.

OR we change it in the chance of keeping it alive, even if it's not how people recognise it now, it might work, it might be great, but it buys WFB time, time to turn itself around, perhaps start a new fan base, perhaps grow into something better, but it's a chance. So what if army X or Y doesn't get new models for a while, they might do in the future if things work out. I'm not sure how WFB will pan out, I'm really not, but I truly don't believe it's as bad as everyone thinks.

I'll be honest and tell you I know VERY little about new WFB, but what I've heard is that you'll still be able to play massed battles, TRUE
you'll also be able to play skirmish level games, TRUE
you'll still be able to use your existing models, TRUE
the basing probably wont matter that much, TRUE
you'll also get a load of new models, aTRUE nd probably a bunch of other stuff too, compared to the DEATH of WFB I think it's the best option.

WFB is going to have plenty of store presence, and regardless of what many (and indeed I) think I don't think the reboot will be bad for WFB, especially if in it's current format is failing to sell. Hell at one point it was almost totally canned. TRUE

You never know new WFB might just be awesome (not finecast awesome either), however my own feelings are that the background is what makes WFB, dick with this then it isn't WFB any more, and frankly that just isn't for me. I'm going a little O/T here posting about WFB on 40k (or should that be 30k??) boards but I feel it's as good a time as any. I think what's done WFB no good is the high entry cost and investment of time & money to get a decent army, making a game that's playable as a skirmish game AND a massed battle game does make financial sense, start small, minimal initial outlay, get people interested/hooked, build and buy a bigger army, SADLY this is where GW fall down, THIS IS WHAT THEY USED TO DO YEARS AGO, with games like Heroquest, Warhammer Quest, Blood Bowl etc. get people into the Warhammer world and setting and races of that fantasy world.

They lost sight of this and thought that the product was self sustaining, it isn't, there is much more competition now for peoples hard earned cash than ever before, there are many companies that do similar and in some cases better stuff than GW and people know it, because other companies use the internet etc. to their advantage, GW see it as the enemy, and they are wrong.

I guarantee this thread has generated more excitement in a few short hours than crap like warhammer visions ever will, and it won't cost them hardly anything. People including me are now thinking, maybe I'll get some nids really for genestealer cults coming along, or I'll pick up an extra deathstorm box for all the nids, or whatever, that GW is SALES. Hiding away ignoring your fan base is beyond ridiculous, especially in such a niche market. The fact that Whisperer oftruth said "Admech..... proved popular beyond all expectations" shows just how little they know/listen to their fanbase, as this has been one of THE most wishlisted armies for so many years it is ridiculous. Anyway enough rambling.

PENDING Release Schedule Rumors - Feb 2015
Question by drbored on Warseer (hastings response is afterwards)
Sad about Sisters, but let's work on the rest of these.
When you say 'Harlequin-sized release' you mean in terms of number of kits?
So it COULD be a main codex (like Space Marines or whatevs) getting about
as many models as the Harlequins got, or are we talking about smaller
forces like the Militarum Tempestus and Harlequin-style releases with new
Codices?

Also I think it's pretty clear that the 'full range' is going to become
GW's plastic 30k stuff, which means the boxed 'historical game' is going to
be Horus Heresy based, or am I just off the mark?

I'm honestly really hoping that Chaos Space Marines gets some attention. Let's get some properly sized Plague Marines, updated Khorne Berzerkers, and Noise Marines and Thousand Sons that aren't half Finecast, kthxbai

Also thanks hastings, this is awesome stuff and makes me pretty excited for the future!
Oh they will

Hastings Response
But not as part of the stuff in this thread, well unless you count the bad SM as CSM? (if you know what I mean)


I have heard that there might be a plastic GD, plastic daemons, and plastic CSM kit for a certain god at some point later this year (and no it's not Khorne!)

Hastings Wrapping things up
So from the list we have:-
Admech Codex & models (full release)
**** Codex & models (Harelquin sized release already mentioned on thread)
**** Codex & models (Harelquin sized release already mentioned on thread)
HH Standalone box game, on sale for a few months, then models become part of 30k range.

Assassins Standalone box game, on sale for a few months, then models become part of the 40k range.

Not Arbites, Not CSM in any form, subtract from those listed. Although I did say that DA might get an update AND that there may be a 40k release of a GD, Deamons and CSM for a god that isn't Khorne at some time later in the year.

Deathwatch
Genestealer Cult

Then separately DA & Tzeentch type stuff. Oh but don't rule out the missing GDs etc. they're all done

Two are due out this year (greater daemons) AFAIK, and we've seen pics of 1

I will just reiterate I DO NOT KNOW THE TIMEFRAME of these releases, I've been out of the loop for some time. I can only assume that Lords of Warg have the Apr/May Admech correct (I'd heard April) but I've no idea of the schedule or indeed order of the other stuff.

I guess Patriarch, Magus, Hybrids, and Limo might just about make that a Harlequin sized release?

Totally (well not totally actually) unrelated I did hear that actual CODEXes? (CODices?) god know s the plural, might soon be a thing of the past. with all rules being in box leaflets. Some might even contain 2 sets of rules, one for 40k and one for 30k But I'm not 100% on this.

Tau are next, then Eldar. Sisters, Templars, Orks, and probably Nids need books before IG does.

Not quite, remove sisters & Templars...... replace with SM & IG....... Although the order of them might be mixed up a bit

Sisters Rumors - July 2014
Please treat this as a rumour, but I may have some info on this.

My info goes like this. As of next year around July 2015 GW will hand over Sisters of Battle to Forge World and they'll be a full multi part resin kit. FALSE

However, this is only for a short as if what I am hearing is true, you see if the info is correct, GW is introducing a new Faction into 40,000 and it will be called "Children of Chaos" FALSE
this new "Chaos" faction will be basically Space Beastmen. However bringing in a new faction means the culling of an established faction and according to what I have been told there is no place for plastic SoB.

This ties in well, as Forge World will bring out a rehash GW Codex for SoB but under "Forge World" title, but they can only be fielded as an auxiliary force and not a stand alone army. As I have said this will be a short time and by the 1st Qtr of 2016 FALSE
Forge World will withdraw SoB from the range, this has been done this way so that GW and Citadel Miniatures can wash their hands of SoB and the squatting of SoB will be Forge Worlds fault.

I hope this is wrong, but I have had it told to me more than once and one of those is a former games developer of GW that shall never be named.

And that is the third rumor source pointing out a release date of the first week of November. Our previous schedule laid out a pre-order date date on either October 31, with a November 7th street date, so this fits in perfectly. The new piece of info is the lack of a pre-order, which would be unusual for GW. If true they may want it to come out with a big splash of excitement, or perhaps want to maximize impulse purchases if it is in any way a limited release.

PENDING Chaos Rumors - Oct 2016
via Andross on Dakka
Part 1
Right so at the end of my thread regarding the Infernal Tetrad. I got into a bit of gossip mongering about some up coming Chaos Space Marine and Daemon products.

So this what I know as true. As much as can be expected of an early rumer.

A good friend of mine who works in my local GW store, has let me in on some information. Now he's told me things that are "coming soon" before and he's always been proved right before. So I personally believe what he's told me.

Things he says are coming soon. a new daemonkin style Codex: for the three remaining Chaos powers, A new set of Chaos data cards comprising of the tacticle objective cards (originaly available with with the special edition version of Traitor's Hate) and new Pykic Power cards for Tzeentch, Nurgle and Slaanesh, with seven powers for each and conversion kits for the Chaos Powers like those for Blood Angels, Space Wolves etc with 10 shoulder pads champion heads weapons. So yeh if he's done his clearvoyant trick I'll be very very busy through next year. If he gets anything else he lets me in on I'll be sure to share.

Part 2
Not a single crossover Codex: for all three one whole book for each of them.

The Data Cards are the only thing he said had stuff for all three in, the faction spesific psykic powers.

The only thing I don't get is how the updated psykic powers will play into the new Codex:s.

Point. If we're getting new powers there will need to be a printed version of them. Not everyone will be able to afford or want the the cards they're a nice touch and I always get them for any factions I own, but they are for everyone.

Now l lets take what I've heard to be true. If we're getting three new Codex:s it stands to reason that each discipline will be in the appropriate faction Codex:. But I know some people who flat out dislike the Daemonkin thing. should they have to buy three Codex:s they don't really want just so they can have the updated psykic powers for an army and Codex: they already own?

And Azreal13, when I said a daemonkin style Codex: I meant a Codex: each for each chaos power, that do for each of them, what Khorne Daemonkin does for Khorne unit's, but won't necessarily have "Daemonkin" in the title,

And on the subject of scepticism. Any man who is not sceptical about another man's rumour is a fool. Any man who endorses said rumour whithout evidence is a fool among fools.

I am sceptical about everything. The reason that I'm fairly confindent of these rumours is the guy that told me has tipped me off on things before. and everything he's told me about I now own. Like I said in my thread on the Infernal Tetrad "Sorcererof Khorne". His early info has always proved to be correct. I just hope they get the Data Cards before Christmas as I'll need them for the legion Codex: I'm wrighting.

"Please GW, please before Chrimbo,"

Part 3
Right. as I understand it he means. A Codex: for Tzeentch, a Codex: for Nurgle and a Codex: for Slaanesh with new rules, wargear, formations, etc. For armies built around both mortals and daemons dedicated to the aforementioned power/faction. But they probably won't have "Daemonkin" in title.

Yeh I'm pretty sure we'll be getting more campaign books to represent the activities of Abaddon's 13th black crusade. a lot more.

- Slann now becomes a multi-part plastic set - availability for a Relic Priest (Kroak, including Deathmask), a normal Priest, and a special limited edition plastic combination pack (similar to the Exalted Daemon Chariot) that combines a Stegadon and a Slann Priest to recreate Mazdamundi. In addition, they get access to Disciplines, but these may not be taken more than once. Reading into rumours suggests that Slann have Loremaster (see below for reasoning). FALSE
- All Saurus armies become "viable" thanks to the return of Sacred Spawnings - units can purchase Sacred Spawnings like a Mark of Chaos, while characters get access to them off the bat. One will allow them to join Temple Guard units, others will give benefits to specific units, like Magic Resistance or Devastating Charge (Sotek?), while others (like Itzl, or whatever the Cold One Riders are), are already included within their stats. FALSE
- Razordons and Salamanders become a Dual part plastic Monstrous beasts + handler kits, 2 Monsters and 6 Handlers to a set. FALSE
- Couatl model - working like a Terrorgheist in that it can be both a mount (rumours are to be available at sub-200 points to allow 2 to be taken for heroes in 2400 games) and a monster, presuming rare. FALSE
- The Stegadons become special choices as well, with a unit "upgrade" to Ancient stats, and a weapon "upgrade" to didgeridoo blowdarts. Skink Mounts still available IIRC. FALSE
- Skink Priests gain access to Beasts as well as Heavens. In addition, Skink Priests may become "attendants" to a Slann - basically I read it as a Skink Priest option allowing it access to the same Lore the Slann itself knows. Reading into that suggests that Slann have Loremaster as standard. PARTIALLY TRUE
- The return of the Arcanadon - one thing that every non-lizard player is going to hate, a pokemon venusaur/stegadon crossover which takes in solar power to create a blast of magical light, in the form of a cannonball/stone thrower/flame cannon/breath weapon monster. Although nothing concrete about the presumed dual nature of the kit, it could possibly be a much "wanted" Thunder Lizard capable of making thunderstorms. This is eerily reminiscent of the Luminarks/Hurricanums however, so I am EXTREMELY DOUBTFUL and think is little more than wishlisting. Combined with the Couatl which is also a "thunder/weather" monster, this might be crossed wires, OR wishlisting (I believe the latter, though). SPECULATION

Brets - Trebuchet flaming ammunition would create an area of dangerous terrain.
Brets - Battle Pilgrims are being removed, in favour of the reliquae acting as a potential battle standard bearer and allowing men at arms to take swords and shields, as opposed to spears/halberd limitations.
Brets - They are toying with removal of lance formation and replacing that with monstrous cavalry rules for breton warhorses.
Brets - The fireball throwing trebuchet, being a dual plastic kit, one being a trebuchet and another being developed as launching some form of wine barrel as an explosive, as per a mangonel similar to as seen in medieval 2 total war games.
Brets - The reliquae is a dual kit, becoming more like a screaming bell. The dual part nature of the kit is hazy, but possibilities I have heard from range from a large standard (similar to carroccio standard from medieval 2 total war, to a more 'crazy' design relating to a damsel in distress, where a damsel is held in tribute to some passing monster, causing the bretons to rage when said damsel in distress gets eaten alive by a hungry wyvern.
Brets - Hippogryph with parts to represent louen as well as an unarmoured, uncaparisoned, unmounted version to represent a storm of magic version.
Brets - Dual plastic kit for royal pegasus/unicorn prophetess/paladin/faye enchantress.
Brets - A foot knight hero is to be available to represent a duke of montfort, along with his dismounted knights.

SURPRISE! The WD shows the models that have yet to be released everywhere. I find the new giant salamander to be absolutely gorgeous. IMO in term of design they take models like the slaughterbrute, break them in half, throw the parts into an incinerator and bury the ashes 3 feet under. TRUE

For those wondering, Fyreslayers use the Ur-Gold to create runes over their own body. I have no time to actually read the WD but I'll come back later if there is anything interesting. I think that army design is a success.

A few more nuggets of info from the WD:
- Fyreslayers are born from the fight between Grimnir and Vulcatrix.
- Fyreslayers believe that in Ur-Gold resides the essence of Grimnir, their shattered God.
- Ur-Gold is magical. There is a funny rule when you play a Runemaster where your opponent chooses one of his units as carrying some gold, and thanks to it said unit can reroll all 1 to wound. But better not let the Runemaster get close enough and realize you are carrying the gold or the Fyreslayers will go all chop chop on you.
- When they insert Ur-Gold runes in their flesh, their God's energy starts flowing through their vein. This lead to things like being surrounded by flames, striking harder, more resilient skin (I suppose that's why they have 5+ save).

This is how each of their chapters is organized: TRUE
- Chapter mast.. no wait what am I saying? I mean Auric Runefather.
- Below that is the Auric Runemaster (the one in the WD)
- Auric Runesmiters
- Grimwrath Berzerkers
- Auric Runesons
- Hearthguard Berzerkers and Auric Hearthguard (the ones in the WD)
- Battlesmiths
- Vulkite Berzerkers (the ones in the WD)

PS- They're not actually called Chapters as you already guessed, but I don't know how to translate the real name in English.

Sorry but there are quite frankly too many things in the WD for me to read everything.


The huge salamander looking monster are 100% new models and are featured heavily in the next WD. They're not simple cavalry, they're large monsters in the same category as a Carnosaur. TRUE

Thought they are not actually slayers at all, they have their traditional look. Normal flesh, orange hair (but they show other models with dark hairs). Flames only appear on a few specific items. One recurring item they carry is the key. In fact one of the weapons carried by a lizard rider looks like what would happen if you were to turn a Keyblade into a halberd. TRUE

PS-
Thought I constantly called them salamanders, I have actually no idea what the big monsters will be called. If it's in the WD I've yet to read it.

They all are helmeted. Usually the part at the top of the helmet where the hairs "burst out" is shaped like a dragon head. Between the helmet and how much they are naked they kind of give a small "300" vibe TRUE

Two new clampacks, both 23€/18£/30$ if I remember correctly:
– Slaughterpriest, kind of a tall dude so he shall stand out in an army. Good looking model IMO, remind me a lot of the old Confrontation giants for those who remember them. TRUE

– Skullgrinder, regular looking Khorne guy a, Blacksmith who fights with some sort of flaming flail hammer… no wait scratch that, it’s a flaming flail anvil! TRUE

Don’t ask, I think Khorne dudes believe you don’t hit the metal on the anvil, but that you hit the metal WITH the anvil.Big problem I have with him is that he suffer from the same problem that many Aos miniatures already have: despite being a clampack, in the middle of an army he looks so much like the rest you’ll probably lose sight of him. Better make his flames really stand out when you paint him.

– Also Khorne Army Book, same price as the Sigmarines one. TRUE

– They appear to be some repackaging of Khorne miniatures for AoS, but their price was not listed in the WD. There is a new Skullcrushers box that now contains 6 of them instead of 3.

Next week hints refer to a pariah/outcast, a victor and some Zone Mortalis stuff I believe.

TRUE

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - May 2015
Harry, Arthurius11 and Hastings have posted several hints that this game called Age of Sigmar is going to be a smaller affair than the mass-battle game WFB used to be in 8th. The rumor tracker has their posts. DUPLICATE

It's basically more of a skirmish (low model count) game. The box contains a small rulebook with less pages than usual (at least that's what I understood reading Harry's latest posts regarding the rulebook) and two forces. DUPLICATE

It is rumored to be 'human warriors' (a Sigmarite Knightly Order?) vs Chaos Warriors and Daemons of Khorne. TRUE
Rules for the units are included in the box. And some scenarios. Calling it an introductory set (for new players but also to the new setting for us veterans) seems to be a fitting description of it. DUPLICATE

The last posts from Hastings on WS mentioned new building kits to be released in the near future. The removal of several WFB buildings like the fortress seems to back this up. And Hastings can be trusted anyway. DUPLICATE

The tracker has lots of good WFB rumors collected - if you focus mostly on these three.

No worries, the birds will be happy ^^

AoS Arcanites and Tzeentch Daemons should both get waves next year afaik TRUE

PENDING 40k Rumors - March 2016

While I would love to see Space Pandas or Vampires or Ptera-Squirrel, sadly none of them haha.

Yeah, we will see Exodite Eldar - no ETA yet, and not soon though.

Sisters of Silence and Custodes are done by Forgeworld. Sisters of Battle and Chaos Space Marines need more or less a whole new range ala Dark Eldar/Necrons/Orks (from 2nd to 3rd).


PENDING 40k Rumors - Jan 2017
Howdy Guys and Girls

Some whispers via Perturabo's Raven:

"- Cadia will fall in preperation for 8th edition TRUE
- 8th edition WILL NOT AoSify the 40k franchise, they will only gave it rule tweaks, GW isn't crazy to kill their most successful franchise
- From January till Summer, the release schedule wont be full 40k, it will have AoS and Bloodbowl here and there. TRUE
- Regarding Roboute being rumored to be released, he said that it is a possibility but no confirmation right now. Since Guilliman is the imperial poster boy so he would probably be released. TRUE
- So with Fall of Cadia, GW is optimistic that it will be a huge event across the globe, with the storyline progressing etc.

And I need to repeat that this is not the End Times, like with AoS/Fantasy-reboot."

As usual, take it with a bit of salt, but it sounds quite alright ^^

PENDING Release Schedule Rumors - Mar 2016
I don't have an ETA for that stuff.

For Mechanicum: Afaik they have the designs for 2-3 more robots. Afaik they would like to do a combined book.

The deathwatch stuff should get multi part kits down the line. TRUE

More boardgame stuff (surprise surprise). TRUE

Specialist Games try to get Bloodbowl out. Earliest targeted release is Q3/4 2016, latest is Q1 '17. TRUE
After that they want to work on Adeptus Titanicus with a new scale.

I also got early snippets about two possible new/old factions who may come "back", but that's pretty early talk (40k/30k).

For Forgeworld, it's the new IA with Tau vs. Adeptus Mechanicus/Titans/Red Scorpions targeted around summer. The book itself is finished afaik, just needs an release slot. Inferno later afaik. After that they wanted to do Signus/Thramas/Diamat.

40k Rumors - Oct 2016
There is nothing major for AoS coming in the next two months afaik. Bloodbowl is November and 1k sons in December. TRUE

Chaos Rumors - Dec 2016
Martin Jørgensen • I am saving my €€ for a new Lord of Change TRUE

Someguy: Wait, they weren't joking when they talked about Sisters of Battle?
Atia: Nope TRUE

40k Chaos Rumors - Nov 2016
So, take it with a bit of salt, but I just want to add my two cents:

- I heard that both renegades and traitor legions would get love and rules this year, and I heard there will be two books for chaos this year (but no Codex). Now we got Traitors Hate already, so the legions book would make sense with what I know. TRUE
- Physical rules for assassins, sororitas silentium and custodes make sense too. Even more if they can add a teaser for the sisters of battles^^ TRUE

There is nothing major for AoS coming in the next two months afaik. Bloodbowl is November TRUE and 1k sons in December.

I sadly have no ETA for the arcanists (but they should take the stage as big badies for AoS next afaik) - but they reboxed the heroes (well, they are pretty pricey soooo). So who know's *shrugs*. It's usually one big release per month and filler for the other weeks now - hence it feels rather slow.

I'm pretty sure we will get all four cult armies down the line, but that's not anytime soon. It's the same with the (daemon) primarchs - you won't get all of them next year lol. These are big awesome releases, they won't hit out everything they can do within a few months.

There will also be a new mini starter set this week, with rules, 4 battle plans, 3 Bloodwarriors, 5 Bloodreavers, 2 Retributors and 3 Liberators. TRUE

There will also be some small snap fits sets for 10 pounds each.

Last but not least a new "Getting Started with WH AoS" magazine with a free libarator.

PENDING Chaos Rumors - June 2016

Anyone still hyped about Tzeentch? Yes? Great. Here some snippets to avoid all possible confusions:

- Forgeworld will do the Prospero Magnus. In resin. Around Fall, for the Inferno release (as I think Russ may be ready for sale for the next Open Day). There are no "problems", Simon Egan just was afraid of both the horns on his chest and his face. He will be the largest Primarch. And of course FW will continue to produce the 30k Primarchs.

- GW will use the Daemon Primarchs for their ongoing storyline. Because that's the things that "are more interesting". You can use them for both 30k and 40k games, more people buy plastic models than resin. Magnus is finished. TRUE But please don't expect all 5/6 Daemon Primarchs tomorrow lol.

- GW already did them (Angron, Mortarion, Magnus and Fulgrim) in EPIC. They all work as large focus models for their respective Cults.

- I wouldn't expect this stuff before the Summer is over. Relax, enjoy your Sylvaneth and play some games using your Handbook.

- Tzeentch Arcanites, Thousand Sons, Daemons of Tzeentch. #YearOfTzeentch (btw, don't take the year as year but more as ~12 months lol). Also, these aren't next in line, so again, don't expect this tomorrow ... TRUE

Last but not least, a quote from Sad Panda that summs it quite up

"Remember it is still a few months out, especially the 40K stuff.

There are a lot of things in the pipeline before it. Deathwatch for example." DUPLICATE

So, let's chill and enjoy our summer =)

Age of Sigmar Rumors - May 2016
Hello everyone !!

We got this by a friendly raven :

summer campaign

-taking place in realm of life TRUE
-your battle results will be logged at a GW Web Station (the computer you order from when at a GW Store) to prevent skewing results like Eye of Terror did TRUE
-it will shape the setting when they write up future campaign books

general's handbook

-units have a model count cap (max 10 models, or 20 models, etc. depends on the unit)
-you can only add models in "groups" (no points for individual models. example: add 5 liberators to your unit for X points)
-book will contain points for all models, and they'll be included in battletomes going forward (i don't know if it's definitive, i couldn't tell if he assumed that was what's going to happen or if he was told by studio guys)
-army organization is a mix of force org from 40k and the point-tiers from fantasy. for every X points in a game, you can have up to Y heros/wizards/monsters, etc.
-in Match Play, there's the "Rule of 1s", in that 1s always fail, limit named characters to 1 per army, and units you summoned cannot summon other units that turn
-weapon upgrades in units won't cost additional points.
-some missions in the book that are styled like LotR games, where you recreate a major battle with each player bringing an army determined by the rules, and such missions will be included in battletomes.
-narrative will have a lot of cool stuff to add to your games. magic items for your heroes to wield, new Path of Glory for all armies, new missions to run, etc.

future models

-in the general's handbook, there looks to be new sylvaneth models shown. i would take this with a grain of salt, as they could be very well done conversions, but from what i heard, there are models of aelfs whose limbs are turning into branches and plants, and new updated treemen (not treelords, the treemen who are bigger than branchwraiths but smaller than treelords)
-concept art shown of allariel riding what looks to be a giant rhino beetle? sounds interesting, possible future model? only time will tell
-Slaanesh is not dead. Models are supposedly finished and they're waiting to get things ready (box art, artwork for future books, production, finding a time to include in the story, etc.) studios rarely release models the second they are done, there's a lot of prep work behind the scenes.

sales numbers

-. AoS is now roughly 30% of sales. 40k is still outperforming by a large margin, but AoS numbers are healthy. what to take away from this is that AoS will continue forward, it's here to stay, there's no plans to go backwards on it.

Use Salt of course !!

/cheers.

- Must have book
- Rules for multiplayer games
- people from the podcast playtested the game.

and I also said that WFB is only contributing 8% of the overall revenue of GW's annual income in the last 12 months and thats a primary reason why the bean counters in the PLC are demanding some serious change to the former flagship core game.
Yes they are going to be 'rejuvenating' the Warhammer fantasy brand so it's more entrant level friendly for the kids. TRUE
I have made my predictions and I totally stand by them.
Watch and wait to see if they come true.
The company is undergoing some serious changes, the WD has been revamped already.

Ork Rumors - Jun 2014
We’ve been hearing on the grape vine that Looted Vehicles might be going from the upcoming Ork Codex and with that in minds we thought we’d see what you’re favourite vehicles were to bosh together for the glory of your Warboss and the Waaaaaaaagh! TRUE

Of course there were some firm favourites to loot but with Orks your mind can go utterly wild! So, if you don’t see an option below in the poll that you like then fire up your typing fingers and let us know what you loved converting for your green tide of awesomeness!

There’s nothing stopping you from doing this kind of thing in the new edition of course, Orks are resourceful, but if Looted Vehicles really are going to the scrap heap what will you use your looted vehicles as?

Ork Rumors - Jun 2014
Formation - 'ork warband' - warboss, mek, unit of nobs, six boys mobs, one unit of grots. Gives Boss of the Waaagh! Greenskin Hordes and Stampede rules.

Boss of the Waaagh! Lets you re-roll your warlord trait if taken as a primary detachment.

Greenskin Hordes. "Evey unit with ten or more models in the detachment gains the Hammer of Wrath special rule... and in every assault phase in which is successfuly charges an enemy unit the dice rolled for it's charge range in ten or more before modifers..." The wording here is confusing; not sure if it means that Hammer of Wrath only works if you roll ten or more, or if there was another rule which got cut out.

Stampede! If the formation's warboss is your warlord, he can use his Waaagh! special rule each and every turn after the first. This implies that warbosses have a special rule called 'Waaagh!' which usually can't be used every turn.

Detachment 'ork horde'. HQ, three troops, elite, fast attack, heavy support, fortification and Lord of War. Gives Greenskin Hordes and Boss of the Waaagh! Not sure if 'elite, fast attack and heavy support' was meant to mean one of each is compulsory.

40k Expansion Rumors - Nov 2013
I've been hearing talk of a couple of new expansions for 40K due for release next month:

The first is a fortifications expansion, containing new datasheets and missions for use in regular 40k. I'm also under the understanding that some of these datasheets allow you to take several fortifications as a single choice. TRUE

The second expansion brings superheavy vehicles (and gargantuan creatures) to regular 40k. My understanding is that this will be achieved by adding a new super heavy slot to the force org chart, and that you will be limited to the choices detailed within this expansion (I think there's approximately 15 of them). This expansion will also include new missions. TRUE

Codex: Sisters of Battle
An interesting tidbit I overheard being discussed recently is that Sisters of Battle are getting a digital codex release soon. Unfortunately, I'm still in the dark as to if there will be a physical codex release, or whether this is new material or just a repackaging of the current list. TRUE

Space Marines Rumors - August 2013
Up for release in September is the new Codex: Space Marines. TRUE

- There will be 7 Ltd Ed varients. 6 of these will be covers for First Founding chapters, whilst the 7th will have Black Templars on the cover. TRUE

- New weapon family: Grav weapons. I believe these wound against the armour save (so terminators would be wounded as if they had a toughness of 2). TRUE

- First Founding chapters will be getting a substantial section each to themselves, so hopefully this can be looked as as Codex: Space Marines instead of Codex: Ultramarines. This will also show in a rule called Chapter Tactics, for which the effects depend on the chapter being played. TRUE

- There is a new armour type that at first glance looks to be somewhere between a terminator and a dreadnought - looking more closely, it appears to go over the marine's power armour however. TRUE
- This new armour can be armed in 2 ways, depending on the user. The devastator version has either a bolter array or missile launchers mounted on the chest armour, whilst the gauntlets can be armed with heavy bolters, lascannons or grav cannons. The assault version has a bolter array or frag launchers mounted on the chest armour, with assault drills mounted on the gauntlets. TRUE

- There are 2 new AA tanks. One tank veterans will already be familiar with as the Hunter, armed an AA missile launcher. The other tank mounts 2 tri-barreled turrets instead. TRUE
- There is a new tactical squad. Lots of options as you'd expect, but of particular interest will probably be the grav pistol and grav rifle. TRUE

- A new plastic Sternguard veteran squad. TRUE

- A new plastic Vanguard veteran squad. TRUE

- New plastic characters: a captain, a librarian and a chaplain. TRUE

You'll also get some fortifications - giant gun/missile emplacements and the like. These are also designed to hook up with the Wall of Martyrs terrain. TRUE

"To be fair, the flyers and wraithknight are the new shiny things, so they're going to be what grab the most attention. TRUE

The Finecast that I've seen are a spiritseer TRUE
and a ranger TRUE
and your new battleforce replaces the warwalker with a viper." TRUE

Eldar Rumors - May 2013
I'm not sure how to break this to you really. The Wraithknight... looks down on your puny flyers? TRUE

Talking of flyers, they do put me in mind of the anime Battle Fairy Yukikaze. I won't try drawing either of them this time though, as that didn't turn out so well last time PARTIALLY TRUE

Eldar Rumors - May 2013
The main hull and wings are common across both builds. It's amazing how different tail and fin positioning can alter the look of the aircraft though TRUE

Common features: TRUE
- Downward angling of the primary wings (about 30º I'd estimate)
- Canards are very slightly angled down, but near horizontal
- Engines are mounted in pods in the wings
- One weapon mounted centreline under the hull, and one in a pod in each wing

Hemlock:
- Has a single vertical stabiliser mounted on the centreline of the aircraft TRUE

Nightshade:
- Twin "vertical" stabilisers (they're actually about 30º from horizontal), one mounted on each engine pod. PARTIALLY TRUE

Eldar Rumors - April 2013

The pods on the wings of my drawing are the engines by the way, and yes, this fighter doesn't have a forked nose. Overall, the length of the Hemyock is a little longer than the Wave Serpant chassis, and the cockpit is located in the nose of this particular design. TRUE

Oh, and I think you're all expecting the obligatory mega-walker. From the glance I got, it looks like a wraithlord scaled up to twice the height I guess. DUPLICATE

High Elf Rumors - March 2013
I can confirm the flying chariot. It looks like a tiny boat with wings, and is pulled by a single giant eagle. It looks kind of silly in my opinion, but not much that can be done about that. TRUE

As for the phoenix, it can be made up either as a fire phoenix or an ice phoenix. This one at least look pretty cool (or hot, depending on the option you choose I guess ) TRUE

Both of these will be plastic kits:
- A unit of lasses that look to be using bows formed from water. They're something to do with Avalon? TRUE
- A unit wielding bows and swords, with face-covering helms. I understand these to be called Shadow Soldiers or something to that effect. TRUE

The new price will also be significantly cheaper too. Instead of the $49.50 US hardback Army book price it will be about $37 US and change.

Doomfists are no more, that goes for both the NDK and the Dread. TRUE
Dreads are still psychic pilots, but everything else is just a normal vehicle (and received the appropriate price change). TRUE
The Dread still has Sanctuary and Banishment. TRUE
The higher price from C:SM is likely to accomodate the Aegis and Psychic Pilot (Reinforced Aegis is gone, not that it really did much after the FAQ).



EDIT: Homers are available for all Justicars, Paladins, and HQs that aren't BHCs or Crowe. Teleport Homer is limited to TDA and PT-armed models though. Strikes can't benefit from the homer for some odd reason. TRUE

Grey Knight Rumors - Aug 2014
Psilencer is ranged force weapon.TRUE
And:


~Psycannons became Salvo 2/4 as expected. Heavy Psycannon has a dual profile, area saturation is the same (Heavy 1, large blast) but has a Salvo 3/6 option too. TRUE
~Purifiers inflict Soulblaze on all melee attacks, Incinerators have Soulblaze as well. TRUE
~Librarians are cheeeeeeeeeaaaap. We're talking ML3 (still in TDA) for the price of a current Psyriflemen dread (unfortunately Psybolts really are gone now) TRUE
~Brother-Captains are ML1, can be upgraded to a GM (+1A and ML2) for the same price as the GM's current ML-upgrade. Still under the 200pt mark. TRUE
~Nemesis Force Weapons have a few reworks. No more +1 invuln in melee for swords, halberds are +1S instead of +2I and the warding stave is +2S, AP4 and grants Adamantium Will. TRUE
~Paladin Apothecary is the same price as the current Apothecary upgrade (a solid 55pts less) and becomes a character. As reported, NFWs now cost points to upgrade, the previously spoiled figures are correct. TRUE

~The Titansword is +3S and AP2, all NFW have Daemonbane (successful Force activation grants rerolls to wound and armour pen against Daemons. TRUE

~NDK is a Monstrous Creature (character), same base cost, and all it's options got cheaper. PT is 45 points less than before, and the melee upgrades are dirt-cheap. With how awesome Psylencers are now, you'll be glad to know the Gatling Psylencer dropped 5pts. TRUE

Falchions are bought as a pair, S: user Specialist weapons. Just the one attack still. TRUE
GKT pricing is real, but they do have to pay for melee weapon upgrades, which are one price no matter the model using them. Special weapons are bunkered into PA and TDA price-points though (which BCs and GMs have access to, no more Ballistic Skill tax!) and a GM with Psycannon clocks in at just over 200pts. TRUE

Psycannon/sword GKTs are silly cheap now, slightly less than a Paladin. GKTs are the future, people! TRUE

EDIT: Regular banner is 12" bubble of rerolling failed morale and pinning checks and +1A to GKs in the squad.
TRUE



RELICS!!
~The Soul Glaive is a halberd that lets you reroll failed Force tests, and while Force is in effect, the weilder rerolls to hit, wound and armour pen rolls. Costs as much as a GK Strike. TRUE

~The Bone Shard of Solor gives the weilder a 3++ while within 12" of a Daemon, increasing to a 2++ for Daemons of Khorne within the same distance. Half a GK Strike in points TRUE
~Domina Liber Daemonica grants 1 extra psychic power but has to be rolled on the Sanctic chart. The bearer and all friendly GK units within 6" reroll 1s on psychic tests from Sanctic. Costs as much as a GKT Psycannon TRUE
~Cuirass of Sacrifice is TDA with FnP and IWND, costs 5 points less than a GK Strike TRUE
~The Nemesis Banner is a 12" Fearless bubble for GKs, GKs in the squad get +1A and Daemons treat the fearless bubble as dangerous terrain, but is pretty pricey and only available for Paladins (as is the Brotherhood banner). TRUE

~The Fury of Deimos is an Assault 3, 36" master-crafted Storm Bolter with Precision Shot. Not too bad, same points cost as the Bone Shard. TRUE

Sanctic is repeated in the book (so no new powers), squads have the same psychic powers as they do in the FAQ, except that Purifiers have Banishment, Hammerhand AND Cleansign Flame. BCs, GMs and Librarians have the same power access as before. Draigo has Gate of Infinity! TRUE
No new characters or units as predicted/previously rumoured. TRUE

Still no Psycannon upgrades for vehicles. TRUE



And more:

Another interesting change: Psyk-out grenades changed a fair bit. Work like defensive grenades when charged by Psykers, can be thrown and they inflict Perils on one randomly determined Psyker in the squad that is hit by it (so like Mindstrike missiles but limited to one Perils, doesn't need to hit the Psyker, just his squad which is interesting). TRUE



Grey Knight Rumors - Aug 2014
Few questions;


A )can you write down what NFW do now? (I will miss that +2 I from hellbard, that is quite big hit, but I guess that's the way GW wants to shift meta from CC to shooty)

B ) No more psy-razors?

C ) Mind strikes are in/out?

D ) Draigo is Lord of the War? any buffs?

E) How are paladins priced now ?

F ) Any SM additions into new GK codex to replace missing Inq stuff?

EDIT: BT's questions answered as follows-

a) NFWs all have Daemonbane (while Force is active, they also allow rerolls to wound and armour pen against Daemons) TRUE

B) Unfortunately, no TRUE

c) Replaced with Stormstrike Missiles, S8 AP2 concussion, but we have the throwable Psyk-out grenades which are similar to Mindstrike. Better vs. one Psyker in a squad, worse vs. squads of Psykers. TRUE

d) Yep, LoW treatment for him too. Titan Sword is S+3, AP2 and he's 30pts less. No force org manipulation though. TRUE

e) Same as now, minimum squads of 3. Apothecaries are a whole Paladin cheaper. Land Raiders are dedicated transports (same for GKTs) TRUE

f) Nope, no new units at all which is a bummer. We're expected to ally to get armour-cracking tools now. TRUE



Purifiers can't deepstrike still, neither can Purgs. TRUE
Only change to Psycannons was the Salvo 2/4 profile, s o still 24" range and rending. DUPLICATE

Is there any Army Wide rule to make us better at Deep Striking?



Nope, and the deepstrike bonus is only for the formation that was shown in WD (It is in the codex too). TRUE
There's a biiiig formation though (fittingly called a GK Brotherhood) with a pretty awesome benefit. If you take...

1 Grand Master
1 Brother Captain
3 Strike squads
3 Terminator squads
2 Interceptor squads
2 Purgation squads
1 Dreadnought
1 NDK

...you get Rites of Teleportation (as per the other formation) and Psychic Brotherhood (While the GM is alive, all models in the formation harness Warp Charges on a 3+). It's only something viable in bigger games and the specific nature of the force means you've only got three mastery levels' worth of non-Sanctic powers to benefit from it. TRUE

NDKs will be the big thing for popping vehicles, but our answer for fliers is still going to be fliers of our own.



EDIT: Psylencer is rng24", S3, AP-, Heavy 6, Force. I wasn't joking about that. Funny how just that one word makes such a huuuuge difference to how we look at the weapon, huh. TRUE

Grey Knight Rumors - Aug 2014
Oh, I only just noticed this. Greatsword is a Specialist Weapon that's master-crafted. Looks like it's not worth the upgrade anymore. The vanilla pair of Powerfists (Yes, they retconned Nemesis Doomfists!!) are a better option. TRUE

Only formations are the WD-spoiled one and the Brotherhood I posted earlier (which is strikeforce but better, with restrictions). TRUE

The Aegis is as per the FAQ, all GKs have Purity of Spirit (Which is just the rule that means GKs only Perils by rolling two or more 6's when using Sanctic powers unless otherwise stated (I think this means they'd still Perils if they failed to cast Vortex of Doom). TRUE

TGS is the warlord chart, basically. Warlord traits are: TRUE

1) Daemon-slayer- Warlord gains Hatred: Daemons and when casting Banishment, harnesses Warp Charges on a 2+

2) Hammer of Riteousness- Warlord and unit have Hammer of Wrath

3) Unyielding Anvil- Warlord and GKs within 12" have Stubborn

4) First to the Fray- A nod to poor Mordrak, Warlord and unit automatically arrive first turn when Deep Striking and can reroll the scatter

5) Perfect Timing- Warlord and unit gain Counterattack

6) Lore Master- Warlord knows one more psychic power than normal, must be generated from Sanctic

Yeah, thank you Brovius for your efforts.
Psilencer is S3 ???




Sorry, typo. Psylencer is still S4. Storm Raven is still Fast Attack. TRUE




I skipped past this earlier when I was talking about the BHC, but Heroic Sacrifice is back in a lesser form. It's not tied to a psychic test but it's just a single attack, rolling to hit and wound normally. No instagibbing EW models, sadly. Herald of Titan is also gone. I also missed where Crowe has The Perfect Warrior too, so he does have to always issue/accept challenges (he's a challenge king anyway, since he gets AP2 from Smash and rerollable saves from Blade Parry).

Release Schedule Rumors - Feb 2016

Their bodies are plated armour sealed in the front much like the centurions in appearance, but with no chest mounted weapons. They are on 50mm bases and are quite larger than the Centurion models. Their heads are a giant domed EVA helmet which looks quite fantastic. There are no organic components visible the models, they are automanta. TRUE

Adeptus Mechanicus - Apr 2015
via Captain Citadel on 4-26-2015

The name of the new tracked infantry models that will be releasing are Kataphron Destroyers. TRUE

They are the lighter armoured tracked infantry variants that features two types of cannon; a version of the familiar plasma cannon and a newer larger tech-based calibre weapon of mysterious providence. TRUE

The models themselves feature a mechanical upper body hardwired both into the track assembly and weapon arms, but can swivel at the hip whilst their power feeds are contained into rear back mounted power sources. TRUE

 Adeptus Mechanicus Rumors - Apr 2015
Via Captain Citadel

The HQ unit for the New Cult Mechanicus is called a Tech Priest Dominus. This is a larger character model that is similar to the Forge World Magos models, except it is done in plastic. He is similar yet different that a Magos, robed and slightly hunched over from the arcane mechanisms mounted on his back. There are two head options one is crowned with a strange almost papal hat and the other with the normal hooded mechanicus garb. TRUE

There are servo arms that stabilize the figure to the ground and do not have free motion. He walks with an immense staff that is a much larger and more ornate version of a Tech Prist’s weapon, and also sports a cane. TRUE

The model has multiple spidery legs concealed under his robe, and is on a 40mm base. TRUE
 Adeptus Mechanicus Rumors - Apr 2015

One unit type will be heavily armored, and decked out for close quarters engagements. TRUE
The second is less armored, and features two types of cannon; a plasma cannon varainat, and a larger calibre weapon. TRUE

They are on 50mm bases.”
Adeptus Mechanicus Rumors - Apr 2015
Via Captain Citadel


“There will be a new combo kit for the Cult Mechanicus that contains their core unit the Electro-Priest. One version features large double handed glaives similar to the old model from the 1990’s and the other is armed with archaic looking wrist mounted shooting weapons. Both versions feature robed legs, and torsos with exposed fleshy chests that contain the bio-electrical details that they are known for. PARTIALLY TRUE

Their heads are both bare, and some are blindfolded as well. The close combat versions are wreathed in cog plate, and the shooting variant (with the wrist mounted weapons) have yet more archaic equipment grafted into their backs and heads. TRUE

They both share the same robed legs which look similar to the zealots of olde, and are topped with a very American wrestling championship styled belt crowned with a large Mechanicus cog. Their bases are smaller than 40mm.” TRUE

Adeptus Mechanicus Rumors - Apr 2015
via Captain Citadel 4-20-2015

Cult Mechanicus is coming. TRUE Their troops will be the Electro-priests that everyone has been raving about for weeks. FALSE
From the looks of it, we’ll also finally see the Imperial robots that compliment Forge World’s existing range, and other all new exotic units. TRUE

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - Mar 2015
Via Captain Citadel

“Hate to be a bugger, but Fantasy 9th will be round bases. Once you get over the shock, it will make more sense when you see it. Don’t base your new Fantasy minis quite yet, it may be time to wait and see lads!” TRUE

Chaos Daemon Rumors / End Times Rumors - Jan 2015
The Plastic Bloodthirster is real. TRUE

Kit makes three models a normal bloodthirster with whip and Axe of Khorne, one wielding a monstrous two-handed axe, third has a doubleheaded axe and super long chain flail. The wings are really big - the model is almost as big as Nagash, and is extra tall. It is sculpted on top of a flickering flame. There are three different heads with different types of horns and helmets. Large armoured hooves, thigh straps, regular upper body strapps and gladiator kindof armour. Super muscular, like a super ripped world's strongest man mixed with a Khorne daemon. TRUE

Warhammer fantasy Rumors - May 2014

A rumour from a spanish site (found here: http://www.cargad.com/index.php/2014...aba-warhammer/ )

They were the first to mention a release of Nagash / End Times campaign (May 29th), but did so in a context saying that this End Times campaign would be the lead to a closure of "Warhammer" (presumably WFB, not 40K), followed by a subsequent new skirmish game (presumably fantasy-ish-themed) in 2015 PARTIALLY TRUE

Release Schedule Rumors - Feb 2009

Thanks to a small bird, we give a pile you of the VERY TRUSTWORTHY news exceeds what Games Workshop will send during 2.009. Obvious, surely what it is said safe is nothing, but he is quite safe *
March: the War of Anillo. I supplement so that SdA is a game of battles and not of skirmishes. They will even sell plastic pedestals for “adapting” or “putting in rows” minis of the Gentleman of the Ring. *
April: the Imperial Guard comes. Few new miniatures, but will be something (and great). *
May: Fantasy, second big wave of miniatures of the Empire. To already known Tank Steam they are united (finally) Great the Espaderos to him of plastic. We will also see the new Altar military. *
Julio: Warhammer 40,000 Planet Strike. I supplement for planetary assaults. The stage scene says that it is the best one than it has never been seen.
* August: Elfos for SDA.
* September: You remember that we said to you that for 2,009 was going away to reedit a classic one? Then already we can say that one is SPACE HULK. With new miniatures (impressive) among others of Exterminadores and Genestealers. Without a doubt, the explosion of 2,009 (and now to hope that also they reedit Heroquest). Ah, has said to us that perhaps the price is high, so to buy in England it becomes essential.
* October: It is possible (but it is without confirming) that of Warhammer Fantasy we see the Skavens.
* In November it is highly probable that we see códex of certain chapter of Marin, but not yet is confirmed. And now, the brief news:
* For the 2,010, it almost seems certainly there will be new códex of Tiránidos and Bloody Angeles (taking advantage of the pull of Space Hulk), and says that Necrones or (attention) Tau.
* Of Fantasy the first army that we will see will be the one of Khemri. Without the news of the Beasts of the Chaos.
* There is the good news and the bad news for fans of the Eldar Dark. The good one is that the project is finished, book and miniatures. The bad one is that by low popularity of códex, its launching has discarded.
* A rumor that had appeared envelope that Games Workshop could “leave of side” printed books and to happen to give the pdf free (since already it did in Japan) is denied. That is everything. We give thanks to who has blown the news to us (that she will follow in the anonymity).

Release Schedule Rumors - Oct 2015
Long time lurker/Swap Shop enthusiast here. Normally I follow rumors/leaks without ever putting word in let alone feeding information to the public. Well, over the weekend at the FLGS I spoke with a fellow player who is adamant that 'change' is on the way; and no, that quoted word is not hinting at Tzeentch. He's very confident in his source and let me in on the timeline from now til January. As usual take with your prescribed amount of salt as I relay the supposed information I gathered.

Given the expansive release of the Tau Empire they're likely going to stretch into November as well. TRUE
December shouldn't really see any releases aside from the odd paint set or bundle deals per usual. FALSE
Once we hit January we're looking at Slaanesh and, unsurprisingly, the Keeper of Secrets kit release along with the Daemonkin Codex. FALSE
It was not mentioned if any other models would be released alongside it. He hinted that a character KoS would also be included, but whether that's further along the line as they did with Skarbrand or not, I'm not sure.

On top of all this...? The generic Chaos Space Marine Codex WILL NOT be updated and essentially is being split off into the 4 Daemonkin Codexes. I kinda have a hard time believing this bit, but maybe it isn't so far-fetched as it sounds? Nurgle, Tzeentch and Slaanesh players supposedly will be pleased as Typhus, Ahriman and Lucius will be included in their Daemonkin Codexes.

Not quite sure what to think of it as GW has been a little radical lately and wouldn't quite put anything seemingly far-fetched past them anymore. Apologies if this has been relayed before, but I follow Chaos Rumors like a Cultist and I don't recall anything other than Tzeentch Daemonkin being predicted after Tau, which obviously conflicts with this. We'll see.

-Assault changes where on the table at one point to try and make it more on par with shooting but it's unclear if they made it in or not right now
-Escalation and Stronghold Assault rules are in, TRUE

7th Edition Rumors - Apr 2014
The new rulebook is not a 7th edition of the game, but a re-issue of 6th edition which has the FAQs incorporated in it, and some minor tweaks across the board. FALSE
Some of you may remember when they did something similar during 3rd edition, where they totally overhauled the assault phase, but the edition itself was left alone from that point. Same idea here-- they're folding in the changes in Stronghold Assault into the main rulebook, and quantifying superheavy units and D weapons in the main rules. But that's about it. PARTIALLY TRUE

it is not the alleged LOC model, this is in addition to the LOC.

Apart from the characters (no details here) the other new kits are about Ironjaws (former Black Orcs). TRUE

Orc Rumors - Feb 2016
Re: AoS - Upcoming releases

From what I've been told about Marchs O&G releases, we'll see a big monster, an infantry unit, a cavalry unit, and several clampack characters. Plus the obvious book of course.

Eh, just got word that my first batch of O&G information was off a month. Sorry everybody, it will be April, not March. It seems like some Skaven repacks, more Stormcasts and something Khorne is coming during March. TRUE

Age of Sigmar Rumors - Jan 2016
Darnok over on Warseer is on the case:

“There will be similar books for the other alliances. New Realm Gate Wars book(s) too. I have no information on the timing, except for “soonish”. TRUE

Expect some WoC repacks soon as well.”

Space Wolf Rumors - Jan 2016
Darnok - Warseer Forum

I've been told the SW will not get a new codex, but an expansion book - I guess similar to the last Tau update. There will be new models, but I have no details about them (yet). TRUE


Chaos Rumors - Nov 2015
via Darnok 11-9-2015

“There is a couple of special Chaos Knights following Archaon, as well as a Tzeentch character. A Battle Tome to go with all of them as well.

And there is more for AoS in January…” TRUE

Tau Rumors - Aug 2015

Tau in September should be about right.FALSE
There are a few more AoS releases coming, but I don't think they will stretch into October.

 CHaos Rumors - Aug 2015
I was told there was a new big kit for Khorne coming. "Exalted Deathbringer" sounds about right.
.........
Ah, okay. In that case this model is not the one I just mentioned. Think Bloodthirster size. TRUE

Chaos Rumors - Aug 2015
Plastic Fleshhounds aren't happening, at least not in the near future. TRUE

Horus Heresy Rumors
Darnok - Warseeer

Re: Horus Heresy Plastics in late 2015

There is still a lot of releases for AoS in line before the HH game is due. TRUE

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - June 2015
Just a few words of warnign about those "Dakka rumours": they sound nothing like what I've been told so far. No overlap with things that I have heard about, but lots of things that where not in that. I can not go into more detail, but to me it sounds like somebody either got a lot of things wrong, or stuff has just been made up. TRUE

Dark Angel Rumors - May 2015
I've been told there would be two more upgrade sets, so UM and DA are only the first half of that.TRUE
Devastators will be the second kit after Assault Marines. TRUE
Add a few clampack characters, and that's the SM release. TRUE
DA will only get a codex and a character (plus this upgrade frame). I don't know whether the older DA upgrade sprue will remain in production - I hope so.
TRUE
No, DA are still on their own.

 Space Marine Rumors /  Eldar Rumors /  Dark Angel Rumors - May 2015
Darnok - Warseer Forum
I can confirm that Space Marines are coming,TRUE
as well as Dark Angels. Three weeks of SM releases, one for DAs. After the AdMech stuff is done there is an Eldar armybox, FALSEand then it’s Marines.As for those rumours in the OP: eh, “rules rumours” are usually crap, as are these. I consider the “sprue rumours” to be nothing more than wishlisting too.
Well, it will be right after the SM releases, so late June or early July. And quite a lot of stuff too, should be only WHF for a while.
There is a lot of WHF coming after the SM releases are done. Just not at the beginning of June. TRUE

Release Schedule Rumors - Mar 2015
The AdMech stuff is already set in motion. On the Eldar: I've been told it's a full codex,TRUE
but only new Jetbikes (could be two boxes for different unit types thoug - interpretation of mine) and a few characters with it. TRUE

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - Feb 2015
via Darnok on Warseer
My latest information has 9th for summer. TRUE May has something else coming. TRUE

Chaos Space Marine Rumors - Jan 2015
As far as I’m informed, this is 100% correct. New Bloodthirster, yeah! TRUE

So far I only have heard about a CSM supplement in March. Maybe some more details will surface over the next weeks.
The theme is Khorne, as far as I’m told. TRUE
Adding to the confusion now…
One of my very reliable birdies told me to not expect a new CSM codex, but only a supplement. And while it is centered around Khorne (plus at least one new unit and new models in plastic), it is not about a Legion, but a renegade warband. This is a contradiction to the rumour in the OP by S teve the Warboss, and only one set of those rumours can be correct in the end. TRUE
So apply a bit more salt than usual.

Chaos Space Marine Rumors - Jan 2015

The theme is Khorne, as far as I'm told.


Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - Jan 2015
Darnok wrote:If you like Warhammer, I suggest you better take a seat.

Over the last few months I got a few glimpses on what WHF could change to in the very near future. I have collected messages, asked questions, and tried to form a somewhat coherent picture. The one thing I believe by now is: Warhammer in its current form will no longer be supported by GW. It will be transformed into something else, with everything built up in background and most of the model range being kicked out of the door.

To give you an insight into some of the messages I got, have a look at the following. Please note that I am paraphrasing at times, and have cut out (hopefully) everything that could lead to the original identities of my friendly birdies.

(To address the problem of "how come my Tomb Kings of Khemri are fighting against Wood Elves from Athel Loren?", not that I get the impression that either of those will still exist, but you get the idea) PARTIALLY TRUE

- New faction... heavily armoured, religious, "good" human warriors fighting with the power of the gods. (Warhammer Space Marines, basically). Karl Franz Ascended seems to be the prototype or precursor for this concept, AFAICT. TRUE

Model diversity cut in half shelf space. New world and new age so current factions and lore aren't recognizable at all. Each new faction has like 3 core units that will always be on the shelf. Much faster releases of stuff, mainly characters and special units of 2-5 fancy models (like Morghasts) that have their own rules right in the box, so not dependent on a static army book. Many of the these non-core models are only available for a limited time (say 6 months to a year), so they don't take up shelf space forever and ever. Many existing models are not usable in 9th. FALSE

This has caused quite a stir back at GW HQ as there are a lot of people behind the scenes (some of which are very well known to us) who don't like the changes that have been made. I have also been told that the models due to be released are some of the best to date!
Add to that (and by "Birdy Prime" I mean my best source so far): TRUE

As you can see, it will be drastic. It seems like those „Spanish rumours“ might have had some more flesh on them than I thought: I am by now sorry for my sometimes nasty words about them. And despite my remorse about ever mentioning it, I think my statement about a „ragestorm of epic proportions“ could have been correct after all.

This whole thing will turn out to be either correct or not in less than six months. Hopefully we can get over our worst emotions until then.


P.S.: I have sat on most of this since right before Christmas, but decided I didn't want to ruin anybodies holidays. I also had high hopes for somebody relieving me from this stuff... but that hope was lost.

Harlequin Rumors - Dec 2014

"As most of you will know, the next release for 40K will be Codex: Necrons at the end of January. But...

Source #1

After that come.... Harlequins. Multiple plastic kits and clams over several weeks I think including new jetbike riding ones, is there a current or old name for them? These are called sky weavers. TRUE


Apply salt as usual, but this comes from my most trusted source. Unless there is anything big I'm unaware of this should be hitting February, or March at the latest."

Necron Rumors - Dec 2014
Necrons will hit on the 31th of January (so advance orders are up on the previous Friday, the 23rd).TRUE
Codex, TRUE
clampack character,TRUE
and an army box - the latter probably a bit after the book/character. TRUE


High Elf Rumors - Nov 2014
The Elves get their turn with a twist in the upcoming End Times Series for Warhammer Fantasy. Here's the latest:

End Times Rumors 11-9-2014 (Black Library Weekender)
via Warseer's Darnok:
Now what if I tell you that 1.) the Elves ET book will come with no models alongside it TRUE
and 2.) there will be two more ET books after it?
Volume III: The Curse of Khaine (Scheduled for this year) TRUE
Volume IV: Skaven Book TRUE
Volume V: Unknown rumored final volume

The big point of contention out there in rumorland is whether or not End Times: Khaine will come with models, or be a book only release. Based on what we've seen before from the End Times series, Army Bundles to represent the listed battle hosts is a given, and both High Elves and Dark Elves have received substantial new kits in their last updates.

But then again, would a model of Khaine himself count as an "Elf Model"?

Fantasy Rumors - Aug 2014
a "big thing" for WHF at the end of August - sadly no details, but the notion of "the shape of things to come!" ... confirmed as being the return of Nagash TRUE
Nurgle gets some love in October: a book, TRUE 3 plastic kits TRUE and a clampack TRUE - again, sadly no details about this

Chaos Space Marine Rumors - Hellbrute Rumors - Feb 2014
via Darnok on Warseer
As far as I'm informed, the Helbrutes will be available a week after the Knights Codex. TRUE
It won't go up for advance order with the new Warhammer Visions though, as the Knight books have that spot. As far as I know, the Helbrutes release is the 15th (so advance order from 8th).

Eldar Rumors
There will be something in the codex called a wraithknight (almost as big as a phantom titan) TRUE

Eldar Rumors - Nov 2012

All plastic minis stay the same for the moment including jetbikes TRUE
Wraithguards will be plastic with a HtH option (swords) TRUE
A new Farseer model (finecast iirc) TRUE

White Dwarf Rumors - Overhaul - August 2012
WD is changing in a fairly big way. They are moving out of the design studio into completely new offices and have brought in an outsider to head up the new format magazine (a former editor of a major successful magazine). The new magazine will have increased content and is being invested in with more money by GW in an attempt to break with the concept amongst many readers that it is little more than a figures advert. They've been working on the new mag since early May (4 WDs have been released since), so I'd expect the first of the new look fairly soon, but it would give us an idea on internal turn around times when it appears... TRUE

Dark Elf Rumors / Dwarf Rumors / Wood Elf Rumors
DE - Expected before WE TRUE
Dwarves - Expected before WE TRUE
WE - The treeman, however was said to be on the new monster base and about as tall as the Ogre Thundertusk's banner, and that it stylewise is more living brushwood-forest thingy than an actual anthromorphic tree. PARTIALLY TRUE

6th Edition Rumors - June 2012
Anyway, Land Speeders have the special rule "Jink", which gives them a 5+ save all the time, this changes to 4+ if they go flat out. (I'm reasonably sure all fast skimmers get this, I'm not sure whether it's a USR or just a quality Fast Skimmers get) TRUE
Also, (and I can't believe I forgot this one) models are taken from the front when they're shot. Or, to put it another way, when a unit gets shot at, models from the part of the unit closest to the firer are removed first. TRUE

6th Edition Rumors - Leaks - June 2012
- Hull Points are in, it is stated that Ghost Arks, Land Raiders, and Defilers each have 4 Hull Points apiece. TRUE
- Necrons have the ability to strip hull points for each roll of a 6 to penetrate/glance vehicles, making rapid-firing gauss weaponry very powerful at removing armour. TRUE
- Speaking of rapid fire, you can indeed move and fire once up to the full range of the weapon (it is explicitly stated that Fire Warriors can fire their weapons up to 30" away), no confirmation on the 3x fire for Relentless at half range though. TRUE
- Assault moves are indeed 2d6", but added together. Units equipped with jump packs can re-roll the dice to see how far they charge. TRUE
- The Rage USR gives you +2 attacks on the charge TRUE]
- All flying monstrous creatures have the ability to fly 24", doing something called a "Vector Strike", which is a certain amount of automatic hits to a unit they fly over, at the base strength of the creature. TRUE
- Monstrous creatures' attacks are explicitly AP 2 TRUE
- Every army must select a "Warlord" or single general to lead the army, this leader gets an ability. They can choose between three different types of abilities, "Personal", "Inspirational" or "Strategic". They then roll on one of those charts to see what ability it is. The two examples given were a Grand Master giving all friendlies within 12" his Ld of 10 (Inspirational), and a Chaos Lord being a scoring unit (Personal, the ability itself was called "Immovable Object" TRUE
- Flyers are a specific type of unit, and it is somewhat unclear as to the rules for shooting at them. Either all units require a 6 to hit them (unless they have a special rule called Skyfire), or this is still the case but only if those flyers move flat-out. Monstrous creatures with the ability to Fly also get this "6-to-hit" rule. TRUE
- You have the ability to buy different terrain (it even has its own slot on the new FOC), e.g, you can buy a Bastion with a Quad-Gun (which has the aforementioned Skyfire USR). There seem to be quite a few options for what terrain you can buy, but naturally most of them are typically represented by terrain kits GW sells. TRUE
- Now we're on the topic of the FOC, the rules for allies weren't laid out specifically, but it is heavily implied that its not the same as in WHFB. They refer to allied units as "Detachments", and there is an example of a player with a Chaos Space Marine force having some detachments of Chaos Daemons in his army. Basically, I was given the impression that it is far more common (and frequent) for a detachment from another 40k army to join a larger one, than it is for a Fantasy army to have Allies. Think more along the lines of the Storm of Magic rules for using TK, VC, or Daemons. TRUE
- Here's a biggie: Units -can- go on Overwatch, giving them the ability to fire upon an enemy unit which charges them, but at BS 1. Eldar (and any other army with access to the Clairvoyance psychic power set) can use a psychic power to give a unit the ability to fire at their usual BS. TRUE
- Monstrous Creatures have access to a special "Smash" attack, allowing them to halve their attacks, but double their strength. It mentions that this gives them the ability to destroy tanks more easily. TRUE
- It's somewhat hinted that AP will have some kind of affect against vehicles. This is because part of the Munitorum dice set includes vehicle damage dice. It specifies that some of the dice are "AP 1, AP 2, and AP 3 Damage dice", or something to that effect. TRUE
- 4 Disciplines of Psychic powers PARTIALLY TRUE
- basically what we were thinking in terms of Clairvoyance, Biomancy, etc etc. There's a chart near the back of the WD detailing which (if any) psychic disciplines a particular army gains access to. It's interesting to see that a large amount of armies don't have access to any at all. TRUE

40k Rule Rumors - Rulebook
440 Page Rulebook Blurb TRUE
Psychic Power handout. 7 Disciplines with aquila case and cards PARTIALLY TRUE
There are also "Munitorum Templates" (£12, designed with a metal effect look), "Munitorum Tape Measure" (£10, looking like a Servoskull) and "Munitorum Dice" (£10, while stocks last). TRUE

40k Rule Rumors - Warrior's Code - Plastic - Nov 2013
Rules
GW yellow staff were being quite tight in areas. There is a new 'Warrior's Code' coming in for 2014, but they seem to apply them from this weekend. FALSE
This included:
All painted Armies. Now, GW state they will not apply a '3 colour standard' because this is open to abuse. They picked up on someone with a very basic paint scheme that was supposed to be white scar bikers that seemed to be a white primer, a wash and some boltgun metal on the bike engines. PARTIALLY TRUE

No proxies. This is subject to interpretation, but they seem to enforce it based on 'if it has a model is must be used' and conversions must be pre-approved if heavy and not blatantly obvious what the mini is. One fellow who fell foul had an immaculately painted army with Dark angel minis, but painted as White Scars. Even though it had conversions like landspeeders with twin lascannons for preds, he was made to re-write the list as a White Scars list. So the big ugly speeder was a LR etc. I thought this was quite harsh. PARTIALLY TRUE

Others included me being asked why my drop pod doors were glued shut - ummm because I don't like them flapping around, I can't be arsed to paint the insides and also because i was not aware the rules said a vehicle's doors must be modelled to open?

Rumours
Firstly, plastic T-Hawk is designed. However it currently takes 7 sprues. Apparently the problem is that the big boy kit machine can only do 6 at a time. So the sprues need rehashing to try and cram it all in to make it economical. (I know, I know...) FALSE
The other is that plastic Sisters are done. The timing of the new codex is an attempt to whittle down some apparently high stocks of current metal. FALSE

Space Marine Rumors - Feb 2015
via duffybear1988 on Warseer
Ohhhhhh what about MK9 power armour?
Hot off the production line. FALSE

Here's what I know -
I have been told that there is a new mark of power armour coming at some point in the future. This is to help GW protect it's IP, so expect the design to be different from any previous version. It has been suggested that it looks a bit like Ironman's armour, but I haven't seen it so I don't know how close this is to reality. I don't have a time frame for the arrival and I don't know if old kits will be phased out or if they will remain alongside it. I'm guessing/hoping that older kits will remain as they are and all new kits will feature mark IX armour. This makes the most sense to me, but then this is GW we are talking about here.

That's all I know at this stage and Harry probably knows more than me about what's coming because he's hinting at bigger shocks.

PENDING 40k Rumors - Dec 2016

Although I hear that 8th is to be around that time too. I can't say anything for the actual rule set, aparantly it brings a new game type. There'll be the current Unbound and the current battle-forged, but also a new tournament style format that's easier to pick up and play (it sounds contradictory to me). Something that does away with formations and the general bloat of stacking special rules upon special rules but should make it easier to balance.

As i said before though, i've got no idea of the accuracy of any of this.

Warhammer 9th Timing

The source is a GW employee in a senior position. Not design team. Very good friend of mine that has for years been trying to get me to play Warhammer and 40K which I started year ago. He let the cat out of the bag when we discussed teeing up a social game. His words were “Let’s organise a game soon and also some time get together with the other guys for a last game of 8th edition triumph and treachery. 9th Edition is locked in for release on 11th July.”TRUE

Tyranid Rumors - Dec 2013
Q: Can you give any more indication on the psychic powers? You said that most have powers assigned to them (specifically the brood lord).
A: A number of them, some, but I doubt it is most. Tyrants for example have to roll. TRUE

I know too little about the whole set of powers. Dominion seems to be the Primaris. TRUE
Biomorphs are accessible by many creatures. Hive Tyrant is definetely on the top of the list so... TRUE

Harpy: It does have very, very interesting weapon. Cannot say which untill images start showing. TOO VAGUE
I believe that when it comes to the background description of it this is the first time ever the Tyranids get access to this kind of weapon class. TRUE
I know, cryptic and some people will say that the guy knows nothing so talks nonsense to cover the fact, but in this case just one word I would have to use would say almost everything.
Honestly I cannot find a way to describe it without making it all too obvious.

The range of wargear, the pricing of the box, the space on the sprues and wealth of options available suggests there is nothing left for such large pieces like wings.
An educated guess, the process of deduction + absolutely no confirmation there are wings = no Shrikes. FALSE

Psychic Deck - Seven cards. TRUE

Hormagaunts - I cannot say how many points - against Warseer policy isn't it? - definetely not beasts. Slaanesh fast, but not that fast. PARTIALLY TRUE
Plus fleet and move through cover. The second seems an army-wide rule (not sure about winged Tyraninds). FALSE

Carnifex - Got a re-pack. Nothing I can say about their rules. TRUE

Biomorphs are accessible by many, many models and Carnifex definetely is described as one of them. TRUE

2 Twin Linked brainleech devourer? The weapon stays. Not sure if it is as good as it was. TRUE

The Doom of Malan' tai is dead and gone. TRUE
Both big, ground beasts are from the Epic 40k, also the shooting one. TRUE
Warrior box is half-dual as I said without confirming it is this particular one. TRUE

Old One Eye and Swarmlord still here TRUE
Blind Venom stays. TRUE
Venomthrope definetely confers cover saves, but don't know if it is a cover save which can be combined with stealth/shrouded or confering stealth/shrouded to models close to it. TRUE

Still more than a full month from today. (12/8) TRUE

Tyranid Rumors - Dec 2013
All those sets allow construction of another unit, also the Haruspex which can be assembled as... another creature from Epic 40k. TRUE

Hive Guards got another weapon option which can be seen on the leaked image.
The weapon is electricity based. No doubt inspired by Teslas, but I have no idea if it works in a similar way. TRUE

Tyrant Guards are very lovely. My most favourite models in the release combining what is the best in the 3rd and 4th metal models.
Several weapon options just like with the warriors. TRUE


I think that they got those new 50 mm bases. I was mistaken in the past with the SM Centurions so forgive me if I make commit another once again. TRUE

Haruspex is damn ugly so you will recognise it immediatelly, but its 'twin' is actually really nice looking MC. TRUE

Harpy's 'brother' is not called Eridne/however it was called in those rumours. TRUE

Hormagaunts: Cheaper and faster. Think of Slaaneshi Daemons. TRUE
Rippers: If I see it right got more expensive, but are no longer suicidal. TRUE
Hive Guard Anti Air?: I doubt it is judging from the description, but cannot disprove that entirely. PARTIALLY TRUE
Genestealers: Seem the same, but Broodlord has a fixed psychic power (no rolls) and full access to biomorphs - there is a list of those much like with wargear for other armies in other books. TRUE
Spores: No trace of them so far. FALSE
No clamshells. Perhaps a second wave, wouldn't be that weird, but mind their production capacity when it comes to plastic models is limited. Jes Goodwin said something about it when was asked about Jetbikes. TRUE
The are some repackages, though. More models in some boxes (so no Dire Avenger rip off), but don't remember how the prices will change in comp TRUE

There are definetely those four sets named in the phone call in Germany. TRUE
Dual sets (one, lets say, is half-dual), so four MCs including three new beasties. TRUE

There are also other boxes, but re-packs/army sets. TRUE

No clamshell. DUPLICATE

Tyranid Rumors - Release - Dec 2013
The poster below was spot on. The Warriors are a new set, the last one was from 2001 so it is as with the Tacticals who got reinvented, multi-optional new sprues. Cool, useful, but they are not super-killy. Can easily be made the core of the army and have access to very many weapon options so good value for money too. DUPLICATE

Tyranid Rumors - Release - Dec 2013
Warriors.

In my opinion definetely the centerpiece of the release. Much like the Tactical squad for the Marine codex they are something every Tyranid player - new or veteran - will have to buy. FALSE
The box includes all or almost all weapon options the Warrior entry in the current (still the current) codex has + something really nice. Still don't expect all your wishes to come true. Remember it is no more than three infantry sprues in the box. TRUE

The unit's cost.
It depends on the cost of wargear and what special rules give them - namely what Synapse Creature gives them in the new codex. Right now I can see no meaningful point decrease. Still troops though. TRUE

Tervigon.
Still troops, but comes with 'the Gaunt tax' to occupy the slot. Gaunts are cheaper so it helps a little. TRUE

Much depends on the new psychic powers the Tyranids get because it remains a psycher with randomly generated powers so unlike some psychers in the new tyranid codex. TRUE

The Big Bug.
It is big, but not that big. Remember that the Wraithknight and Eldar models in general are smooth and do not have so many limbs, vents, horns, bio-guns etc so making something as large as the Eldar fellow would create something really, really expensive - definetely in titan price range. The big bug is thankfully cheaper. TRUE

The creature is taken from the Epic 40k, but the difference in size is not so ridiculously... pronounced, but it is large enough. TRUE

Ohh and the instinctive behaviour list is expanded - with entirely new modes some creatures will take when separated from the Hive Mind.

Tyrant Guard too got something new, a weapon upgrade they will find really useful. TRUE

Tyranid Rumors - Release - Dec 2013
Warrior entry options seem covered, but Shrikes are a diffrent entry... cannot say for sure but with so many options in the set I doubt there is any space left... TRUE

Instinctive behaviour - clarification

As I was afraid it was misunderstood (yes I see you H.B.M.C.).
Modes stay, so if something lurks it doesn't feed. TRUE

But there are more modes than just those two. TRUE

Psychic powers
One set of 7 powers, but some creatures do not roll, but get something specific and it doesn't have to be the Primaris. TRUE

Tyranid Rumors - Dec 2013
RE: Tyranid Prime, It is not a clamshell plastic pack. DUPLICATE

Expansion Rumors - Nov 2013
All GW produced superheavies (as in the ones already in plastic) will be in the book. TRUE

40k Expansions - Nov 2013
I can confirm both expansions.

Hardbacks, c. 100 pages long. PARTIALLY TRUE
Escalation provides rules for super heavies, gargantuans and D-weapons + 16 unit sheets providing options for all armies. TRUE
For example Revenant titan for Eldar and Dark Eldar ( I guess Tantalus was not good enough?). TRUE
I'd expect all models released in plastic + 1-2 per army. Thunderhawks are mentioned as one of those vehicles. TRUE



Basically mini-Apocalypse with about 50% superheavies which are described. PARTIALLY TRUE
The fortification supplement gives datasheets for released fortification sets, how to combine some of them and field as larger constructs + various rules for buildings, ruins etc. TRUE

Both books include missions and background sections, but fluff is not too important contrary to codex supplements. Treat them as Planetstrike, Spearhead and similar sets of rules we've seen in the past. TRUE

I have on, Excellent authority, new info.

4 army books which I am assuming will be costly

Skirmish game for sure no news of a new system with blocks of infantry. no idea about how this game will function beyond it being skirmish FALSE

old fluff returns via gods like sigmar recreating the old world anew. GREAT NEWS. New kits, New characters, if the old character died in the end times he won't be coming back so pretty much everyone. TRUE

this is all I have but it's great stuff since it means new game, New story, New minis, all done WITHOUT invalidating the minis you already own. books will be more generalized so no more individual books but that doesn't stop anyone from playing just one faction. TRUE

THE MINIS WE OWN WILL NOT GO TO WASTE. TRUE

knowing where this is from I'm starting to work on my fantasy again.

3. each book will have a trio of characters
4. last book is called the rise of legend/Primarch?, which obviously include a Primarch TRUE

6. then 8th edition
7. Abaddon is likely to be killed during the last book, GW staffs are jokingly saying killed by the bolt pistol
8. dwarf release and gryph hound release should still be there, but the focus is to finish off gathering storm series and launch 8th edition

Hey Gary, saw your "salty" rumor on vect and thought you should know the sodium content probably isn't all that high.

word today was that Vect is in fact returning, but that it would be part of a box of three (sort of like the Triumvate) which would also include the Uthrad previously released in the boxed game. FALSE The third would be Asurmen. FALSE
Someone brought in the old metal Asrumen model, and he looked at it and right away said "aw yeah, that's what we're updating for the new box". He threw out something like "next couple months" but his timing is generally off so I can't help you there.

I don't know a lot about Eldar, so I don't know if Asurmen was supposed to have a Gyrinx with the original metal model. So (1) there could be an exodite still coming (2) there could be a new human psyker coming (3) Asurmen could be getting a pet. FALSE

FWIW, a second source (another GW employee) also confirmed Asurmen, but didn't know anything about the box.

1. Fall of Cadia is the prelude to what will be a global campaign over the summer - look for big build up after Tzeentch and then the campaign should start in ~4 months. It sounds like it's going to be global, he wasn't sure what format it would take (e.g., if it would be global with implications like the last black crusade campaign)

2. Lord Guilliman...will be making his arrival (return?) to the 40k sometime before that campaign kicks off. Didn't sound like there would be more primarchs than Guilliman and Magnus heading in but 4 months is a long time. TRUE

8th ed was referred to as a "backwards AOS-ification" of 40k. Basically, they'll push the plot forward, keep the existing mechanics more or less as they are, but adding in "streamlined/narrative" way to play that is closer to the narratives you find in the AOS Generals handbook.

via a very solid source on Faeit 212
so now that GW has officially confirmed the Celestine for next year, w/ no plastic SOB in 2016, and I'm assuming my friend was talking of the resin Canoness as the plastic character release, ALREADY TRUE

I figured I'd share the rest. With chaos approaching Terra (still saying early-mid 2017), one of the loyalist primarchs will wake up (he says Guilliman, although others on your board seem to think the Lion), DUPLICATE
and they will call the custodes to the battle.Not sure if that's with Cadia or not.

So again:
(1) he called the "no sisters of battle in plastic except a character" in 2016, ALREADY TRUE
(2) he divulged the "plastic Celestine almost as big as Stormcast Prime", ALREADY TRUE

and at the same time he gave those and tossed out Slaneesh vs Eldar, he tossed out Loyalist primarch waking up (again, he says Guilliman) DUPLICATE
and bringing the custodes out of the throne room to actually do something.

The only thing he's been wrong about so far was release timing. I'll take it.

info about another two part series coming next year.

It follows on from Warzone Fenris and focusses on the Dark Angels and their Successors going on a crusade post Fenris Cataclysm.. FALSE

They received a summons from the High Lords if Terra to get to Cadia (as did the Wolves and almost everybody else!) However, something else has caught their attention and they must intercept it fast.. although the dilemma is.. if they don't get to Cadia, it will look very suspect and could cost the Imperial dearly in their defence.. but I'd they don't intercept this 'thing/person/army' (can't say!!) then it could also, equally spell doom for the Angels and the Imperium.. or so they think.. who knows?

The first book is called The Hunt and is focused on the Angels and their Successors and the second book is called The Fall and is focused The Fallen and Chaos..

It's leading into a race to Terra for the 13th Crusade.

It also features a loyalist Primarch returning, you guessed it, The Lion.. FALSE and everybody's favourite Hide and Seek champion Zahariel.. I mean Cypher!! DUPLICATE

The 9 traitor legions, yeah, mostly formations, data scrolls, relics, way more psyker powers and chapter tactics like SMs so this is a HUGE boost. FALSE

Dec 3rd preorder for legions, 10th for Imperials. FALSE

PS: the rubric marines box is stunning
1) its comes with an amazingly diverse transfer sheet and
2) 10 infernal boltgun and 5 warpflamers. Soul reaper cannon. TRUE

I'm an ex staffer in the UK. With regards to the data Cards. They have been, and as far as I am aware, still are splash releases. They only print so many and when they are gone, they are gone. So we shall probably still see data Cards for new dexes etc.

As to a digital version, there is already a fully licenced tactical objectives app here in the UK by derp studios. Available on Android and iPhone. I don't know if it is available on the other side of the pond


40k General Rumors - Oct 2016
via anonymous sources on Faeit 212
The Horus Heresy Legion Forge World Space Marine Icon bearer will be available at every Warhammer and Games Workshop starting on October 22. TRUE

also.....
Heard from an insider but unable to verify yet with a second source, but taken in context of the rumors of 40k End Times, Games Workshop taking over a lot of the HH, and plastic primarchs, this makes a bit of sense.:

By the end(ish) of 2016, the Black Crusade will make it to Terra. As the forces of chaos arrive, the Legio Custodes is forced out to defend the Imperial Palace. And, surprise: the Silent Sisters have been there the whole time. So that's where you get the introduction of the next 30k box set models into the 40k universe.
Also probably means no more Sisters of Battle, although there may be one or two surprise one-off models. FALSE

Anyway, to sum up:
1. Black Crusade reaches Terra, forcing the Custodes and Sisters of Silence into the fray (rumor somewhat supported by GW taking on more 30k, Custodes/SoS included in new Box, and the recent kick off of 13th Black Crusade)

There's also some extra-salty soup regarding the return of Eldrad re: Slaneesh, but may we've already had enough sodium today.

Additional intel
By the way, additional but super salty (only heard from one second hand source but he's a former employer), is that by landing the Black Crusade on Terra, that's where we're going to get a whole slew of Primarchs returning from the webway/waking up from stasis, and the emergence of the demon primarchs, and the potential death and rebirth of the Emperor. So, basically, 40k endtimes, no word on if 8th edition would involve a major rules overhaul.

Having said that, this is basically salt soup at this point until I can get some confirmation kind of confirmation from another GW connection. If you hear something similar from someone else in the meantime, you're probably getting good intel at that point.

40k Rumors - Aug 2016
via anonymous sources on Faeit 212
Primarchs and Demon Primarchs are coming to 40K.

They won't be the same as they are in 30K. They're going to be slightly different to account for the 10k year gap.

We will be seeing The Lion, Russ, Guilliman, DUPLICATE Khan, Mortarion, Angron, Perturabo and
Magnus TRUE .

It will be once all of the 'end times' build up has finished (all of the latest campaigns) and we enter the new age (8th edition).

GW wants to cash in on FW success with the HH series as well as the fact that we're returning to a 'Golden Era' style GW with the new CEO and Merchandising and Marketing Director - Meaning they are actively listening to us, the customers and are proactively doing what we want now.
(Just look at the new Monthly WD with battle reports and painting guides, the new Get Started sets, the new clip n play introductory kids sets, the FAQ/Errata they're doing, the Points Systems for AoS, the social media interaction with the Facebook groups and new Warhammer TV talk show etc!!)

GW has been paying attention to the success of the HH/30K and to us wanting storyline advancement and more excitement (whilst not wanting a full AoS style reboot) and 8th edition is going to be that. (The latest campaigns, Baal, Curse of the Wulfen, Death Masque etc are all part of that lead up).

Apparently there is going to be a huge global campaign based around the next Black Crusade and a huge push by Chaos - As well as Nids doing their thing, the Orks going on a Rampage, The Tau pushing out, The Eldar getting themselves involved, The Necrons rising up and The Imperium battling on all fronts. (Business as usual but things are much more desperate!).

There will be storyline advancement on a scale we've not seen before!!

Apparently, the next Campaign will feature the Ordo Hereticus and Chaos and after that, we will be seeing the final stages of the lead up - with lots of new a chaos goodies including those Greater Demons, Rubric Marines, Plague Marines and everything else chaos related that's coming!

All kits in the box are plastic I am told and some will include new plastic updates which will later be released as separate kits. The Main Rule book will just be rules and each Campaign will have a "fluff" and Special rules books which will develop that campaign's storyline.

The six boxes are:
1. Kharn's Slaughterband - (New) Kharn the Betrayer, (new)Khorne Bezerkers, Bloodletters, Bloodcrushers and a Hellbrute)
2. Eldrad's Cursing Spear - ( New) Eldrad, (New) 2 Guardian squads (can be either defenders or storm guardians, (new) 5 warlocks, 2 war walkers, Fire Prism
3. Magnus' Weavers of Change- (New) Magnus Daemon Prince, (New) Prosperine Terminators, (New) Rubric Marines (ranged), Rubric Marines (Close Combat), Chaos Predator Tank
4. Iyanna's Phoenix Host - (New) Iyanna Arienal the Oracle of Ynnead, (New) Arcane Battleseer Firesight (Can also be built as standard Arcane Battleseer) (Can also be built as 10 Wraithguard/Blades,2 Wraithlords, 5 Dire Avengers
5. Ahriman's Unholy Covenant - (New) Ahriman,(New) N'kari (can also be built as standard Keeper of Secrets) (New) 2 Chaos Sorcerors, Rubric Marines, Pink Horrors of Tzeentch, Daemonettes of Slaanesh, Chariot of Tzeentch
6. Sythrac's Anguish Bringer's - (New) Valossian Sythrac the Blade of Vect, (New) 5 Kabalite Trueborn, Kabalite Warriors, (New) Incubi, 2 Venoms, 1 Raider, 1 Razorwing Jetfighter
7. The Laughing Host - (New) Prince Yriel Champion of Cegorach, (New) Sylandri Veilwalker, 3 Harlequin Troupes, 2 Starweavers, (New) 1 Sentinel of the Black Library.


New Kits for the Campaign
I am told that there will be other new kits coming out alongside the campaign, all kits mentioned above will also be available separately. I asked about some of the new units mentioned above and this is what I have so far:

- Prosperine Terminators = Basically Rubric Terminators but all are heavy weapon specialists with in built heavy bolters, multi melta's but also more magical weaponry too. Terminator Models which are more like the Imperial than Chaos ones but have the rubric details you would expect on them. FALSE

- Iyanna, the special character we all know and love (or hate) but she becomes very dark and sinister, shes floating on wild growing wriathbone and spirits, has a spear and staff, helmet is a cross between a Farseer and Spiritseer

- Magnus, Daemon Prince, covering in Tzeentch markings, bright red armour and a golden sythe. Described as flying with feathered wings whilst mid casting a spell. Apparently he is in the webway and basically racing Ahriman to the Black Library, they are NOT allies in any way PARTIALLY TRUE

- Eldrad, still doing his usual thing, new plastic model is very similar to old metal one. TRUE

-N'kari, the Keeper of Secrets leading the Slaanesh Daemons in the webway, in an alliance with Ahriman, but both of them are extremely untrusting of the other and secretly have different aims. Also can be built as a normal Keeper of Secrets, multiple weapon and head options, posed as if leaping and about to strike out.

- Arcane Battleseer, similar to a Wraithknight with psychic weapons and powers. Imagine if you smashed up a wraithknight into chunks of Wraithbone then bound them back together with psychic energy energy, can be posed casting a spell, fighting or just standard. Looks extremely cool I'm told.

-Arcane Battleseer Firesight, The first Arcane Battleseer. Used to be the High Farseer of Iyanden but then died and became a Wraithseer and a close advisor to Iyanna Arienal. Was blown apart along with 2 Wraithknights after detonating an Ork Stompa. Iyanna's desperate ritual to save Firesight merged the souls of the Wraithknight Pilots and Firesight together and created a new Wraithbone body called an "Arcane Battleseer". A successful design so has begun being replicated on other craftworlds in addition to creating Wraithseers. Posed like a normal Arcane Battleseer but has a more ornate head and a special energy spear/staff.

- Valossian Sythrac, Basically is Vect's top Archon who does all of his dirty work.
Posed leaping forward with a Husblade behind him and an open soul trap in an outstretched hand which has tendrils of energy leaping forward from it. Has a Golden Helmet with multiple Horns which apparently look a bit like Malekith from WHFB.

-Prince Yriel, similar to current model but cloak is now a diamond one, and stands on top of eldar architecture with spear swiping and leaving 'Green fire behind it". He now wears a mask covering the left half of his face which included his special Eye thing which has received a bit of an upgrade and now shoots a special beam. His Banners on his back are gone and replacing with long hair blowing in the wind.

-Kharn the Betrayer, a lot like the current model but more dynamic and posed as though lashing out at an enemy. PARTIALLY TRUE

-Sylandri Veilwalker, Special Shadowseer, floating on mist which also covers half her character. Has a curved semi circle blade in one hand and a staff in the other.

- Sentinel of the Black Library. Wraithlord sized figure with a long spear held by both hands. Cloaked in a long black and white chequered robe and has a mirror mask for its face which is mostly hidden by a hood.


Future Campaigns
There are apparently 4 more campaign book series' (each with their own army starte sets and new releases).
Campaign 2 Is Eye of Terror area Chaos invasion (Blood Angels, Space Wolves, Dark Angels, Astra Militarum, Eldar, Necrons VS everything Chaos) FALSE
Campaign 3 Is Orks Vs Nids Vs Imperium Vs Necrons in Octarius Sector and surrounding space
Campaign 4 Is Tau vs Imperium but later Chaos and a faction of Dark Eldar, Necrons also turn up as well apparently
Campaign 5 is Eye of Terror area and beyond part 2 (the stories from all 4 previous books brought together) pretty much every race is sensing the chaos in the galaxy and moves towards this area with their own missions and aims

In Campaign 3 pretty much everyone on the development team is game on for having a Ghazghkull vs Swarmlord whilst Campaign 4 they want a showdown between Farsight or Shadowsun and Imotekh. From what I gather, nothing beyond the first two books is set in stone yet and the rest is all a rough outline.

The aim is that these 5 Campaigns should take about 2 years to run their course and progress the setting to a new state where various side stories can be developed and therefore create new stories but keep the clock at "1 minute to midnight" for the overall setting.

via an anonymous reader on Faeit 212
One of those rumours without proof I'm afraid but got it from a close contact that squats are coming back, little bit steampunk, to 40k. Bonkers but true.

All I have currently is they are quite steampunk in design, think blimps and jump packs with a new jump pack base design.

Hi, got an update from contact and sad to say not squats after all. Gutted, aos they are. Apologies, excitement got the better of me.

Chaos Space Marines are currently being worked on. The models are not even finalized, but a book is being created, and I am assuming that it is a codex. The book is not coming for at least a year, the details are still being changed frequently, both the models dimensions and specific details. FALSE

Three interesting sightings
1. A field artillery battery manned by Chaos Space Marines, with tracks and barrels that looked like a quad mortar. Their armor was different , as it had plates on the front that looked similar to that of a Warpsmith. The helmets looked like Mk III

2. Chaos Sorcerer with staves that looked Chaos-y, one that was wearing a robe. None of the sorcerers had horns or spikes sticking out where I would have expected to see them. A group of them casting a psychic power with a Nova Blast effect.

3. New Predator Tank weapons that are not autocannons or lascannons. At least 2 new cannons being worked on, both are boxy with lights down the side, but no clues to what they do.

I saw no legion markings. All armor was a greasy metallic gray, or the subjects were illuminated in a reddish glow. Lights from the eyes of helmets are red or green.

There were no models of cult troops, heretics, or other infantry

There was also something referred to as a Wyrm with large armor plates reminiscent of a Forgefiend. No other details

- there will not be any rules for Xenos factions included.
TRUE

Tau Rumors - Oct 2015
via anonymous sources on Faeit 212
The Ghostkeel is an elite choice that comes with 2 stealth drones for each Ghostkeel. It's a Jet Pack Monstrous Creature, and you can take 1-3. It has the normal Tau BS 3 with 4 wounds, but only a T5. However the 3+ save with +2 to it's cover save outside of 12" should make up for it. TRUE

The main gun- Fusion Collider is an 18" S8 AP1 melta blast gun that can be exchanged for a Ion weapon that is more infantry based with a S7AP4 Assault 6 gun that can overcharge for additional strength and a large blast. TRUE

It also has a twin- linked flamer that can be exchanged out for a TL bust cannon or fusion blaster. TRUE

The model has gear that doubles the cover saves to a max of +2 but also gains shrouded from it's drones. It seems powerful with stealth, shrouded, and the limited doubling, but I have not had time to read the details to see what stacks. TRUE

Two support systems are also allowed for upgrades. Cost wise its a little over a hundred and a quarter.TRUE

GW wants to do more stuff in the future to get new customers. There is a

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - July 2015
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
He basically confirmed a few points and brought up some I've not seen
mentioned.

1) WFB was definitely dying/losing money, so had no future.

2) AoS is aimed at bringing in 40K players, and it is working.

3) Everything currently in the WFB range will not only still be supported,
but also still produced so long as there is demand and the moulds are fine.

4) Bretonnia in some form has survived, and will be distinct from The
Empire - he said that they'd probably be near the top of the list for a big
update. (I know Bretonnia is always 'coming soon' but he said that this was
something the had worried him personally so he'd sought answers.) TRUE

5) There is tons of AoS stuff already made and in the release schedule,
Stormcast stuff is just the tip. TRUE

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - July 2015
via anonymous sources on Faeit 212
I wanted to follow up on the AoS book. It will have 8 scenarios, some (they couldn't tell me how many) Warscrolls, and the 4 page rules. They also stressed this repeatedly. "It is not a rule book" TRUE

I just have to wonder, what did the BrB Have? Rules on the game. Basic model stats. Scenarios. This sounds like a $74 rule book to me.

More as I get it, but I think most will come on Saturday when they allow pre-sales.

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - June 2015
via anonymous sources on Faeit 212
I think players should be doing a bit more to give current players more info,
but as they don't seem to want to do that, I thought I'd weigh in with what
I know.

I had to be taught how the new game works in order to
teach it to potential players.

As this info comes from the intro game there may be some simplification of
the rules that I am unaware of, as you don't want to overload a newbie with
too much info.

Anyway, on with what I know:

Age of Sigmar offers a skirmish-level fantasy game, he did not know
whether it would be expanded to a mass-battle game later but he thought it
would. FALSE

Players take control over several small units, organised into loose groups.
The models are on round bases. He mentioned that at least at our location,
people can use square bases if they want to, in fact with the new
unit formation rules it might be slightly easier to use squares. PARTIALLY TRUE

Units can choose how loose their units form up, either very loose (think
8th ed skirmisher loose) with benefits to movement and defense against
shooting, tight, or square. FALSE

Tight allows for more maneuvers than square, but is less maneuverable than
loose. However, if you receive a charge in tight formation you're better
off in CC than if you received it in Skirmish. FALSE

Square offers almost no maneuverability, you can only move slowly forward.
However, if you receive a charge in Square formation then you're better off
in CC than if you received it in Tight or Skirmish formation. FALSE

One of the units in the intro game (the Chosen of Sigmar) can elect to
change their formation when someone declares a charge against them as long
as they pass a Ld check (base Ld 8 so it's fairly easy, hero had Ld 9) FALSE

The only real benefit to receiving a charge in Skirmish formation (and
there are a ton of negatives - you don't get a bonus from your numbers,
only the models in base contact with the enemy can strike (see below), and
you can't parry) is that the enemy don't get the bonus for charging you in
your flank/rear, since the skirmish formation means you effectively don't
have any. FALSE

A lot of the base rules are the same as in 8th ed fantasy. The same
statline is there (M, WS, BS etc etc), armour works the same, shooting
takes similar penalties (long range, soft cover, shooting at skirmishers
etc), the difference is in the recommended level of play. FALSE
CC works out in
much the same way, highest I goes first, units in base contact with either
an enemy model or a friendly model in base contact with an enemy model get
to strike, though only the former get to use all their attacks. Casualties
are removed from the back, as per usual. FALSE
Different kinds of weapons
(halberds, spears, etc) and their associated bonuses weren't brought up
since the models involved only used hand weapons. Hand weapon + shield
still gives you a parry save though, as long as you received a charge (or
charged yourself) in tight or square formation, and the attacks weren't
coming from your flanks or rear. FALSE

GW is trying to push this to be played at the 1000-1500pt level. FALSE
A lot of
focus was put on the heroes leading each force, and leaders will have more
impact on the game. Think LotR Strategy Battle Game and its Warband rules.
He implied that leaders in general will be more expensive, but have
more of an impact on the game. So a 1000pt force might be led by a 300pt
hero who is absolutely the core of the force, and if they die the rest of
the force is at a severe disadvantage. This goes double if the leader is
killed in a challenge by the enemy leader. FALSE

On a personal note, the game seemed...fun. The choice between different
types of formation provided a level of tactical flexibility that didn't
exist in the old game, but required more forward thinking. Do you start in
skirmish formation for more maneuverability, risking getting charged with
no bonuses from your numbers? Or do you form up Tight and split the
difference? Or do you make like a Dwarf and form up Square and just risk
getting outflanked? Also, when the two leaders got into a challenge in the
middle it was exciting - mine was faster but not as strong, hers was slower
but more likely to do lasting damage. We stopped before one leader killed
the other though. FALSE

Magic wasn't raised in the intro game, but once again I was told
it hasn't hugely changed. Only thing I should mention is that,
aside from some notable exceptions, wizards can't be leaders of a force. FALSE

On a background note - I was laughed at for about 10 straight minutes
when I told her about the rumours of "Waaaghkin" led by an all-female caste
of "Nigmos", though he was strangely silent when I mentioned Regalia.

From what little he did mention, the core races are all-but unchanged in their
basic background. Humanity is represented by the Empire, with the Chosen of
Sigmar being an auxiliary detachment that is often fielded alongside Empire
forces. Orcs and Goblins are there, nothing about 'Nigmos' or whatever.
Chaos is obviously there, in both Daemon and Warrior form, he didn't know
anything about Beastmen. Lizardmen weren't mentioned, neither were Skaven,
Elves were though. Elves are becoming a bit more like Space Marines in one
specific aspect - they're all one race, but differentiated on the grounds
of how they wage war, a bit like Chapter Tactics. High Elves will have 'Elf
Tactics' that reflect their training and drilling, Dark Elves will
have 'Elf Tactics' that reflect their cruelty and malice, and Wood Elves
will have 'Elf Tactics' that reflect their reliance on hit-and-run attacks.
I anticipate this means a single Elf book with basic troop units, some
specific units for each type of Elf, and the rest of the differences will
be in these 'Elf Tactics' and colour scheme etc.

I'm trying to remember anything else, the units were about 10-15 models
each. The Chaos forces were comprised of a unit of 10 warriors, 15
marauders, 5 warhounds, and the chaos leader. The Chosen of Sigmar (being
represented by Lizardmen models as the actual models are obviously
currently unavailable) had 15 'warriors of light', 10 'hunters' with
shortbows, and 10 'chosen', plus the leader.

It seemed a little unbalanced
in the Chosen's favour, but my manager said that when you're introducing
people to the game, although you let them pick, you talk up the Chosen more
so that they're more likely to pick them and be the good guy. That way,
although it looks fairly even, the Chosen have an advantage. Like other
intro games that have come before it, it is intended to provide 2 good,
though small, starting forces.

It was implied that both armies would
need 2-3 boxes of troops added to them to get them to 'average game' size.
This was obviously important because a key part of the intro game is not
only selling the intro box, but also upselling the customer to get a couple
more boxes for a bigger force.

Stat-line wise, though I wasn't told any specifics (this was more a matter
of 'Okay so the Warriors of Light are in close combat with the Marauders,
so you go first and hit on...') regarding statlines, this is a rough
breakdown:
- Warriors of Light are a halfway point between marauders and Chaos
Warriors, not as tough or as well armoured, but more skilled than
marauders, they were hitting marauders on 3s and saving wounds on a 4+ FALSE
- Chosen are basically Chaos Warriors, same armour save, they were hit on a
4+ and wounded on a 4+ by Chaos Warriors, saving on a 4+ FALSE
- Hunters are skirmishing bowmen, their only unique aspect is that I think
their bows are armour piercing. They were hitting stuff at long range
(range 24") on 5s, wounding Chaos Warriors on 5s, but Chaos Warriors with
shields were only saving on a 4+, instead of the 3+ they were saving on
against the Hunters in close combat. FALSE
- Leader of the Chosen was basically the Chosen's statline with +1 to
everything except Movement and Toughness. He had a sword that allowed him
to re-roll failed hits against Chaos things. FALSE

I am using the current statlines for Chaos Warriors, Marauders etc in these
estimations, and they are liable to change.

Anyway, that's all I can remember. I hope this is informative!

for destroyers the heavy grav cannon is a nice upgrade to replace the plasma culverin. It also comes with a phospher blaster, allowing it to fire a lot of shots. TRUE

Fulgurites have staves with enhanced strength and can get a 3++ for the rest of the game if they wipe out a unit in close combat. TRUE

Corpuscariis have gauntlets that are assault weapons shooting with a 12" range, and can also be used in close combat. TRUE

Both weapons have other abilities as well that fit with the Electro-Priests. They can be taken groups of up to 20. TRUE

Adeptus Mechanicus Sicarians £28 Plastic Box Set [TRUE[/b]

Release Schedule Rumors - Mar 2015
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
As soon as Tomb Blades sold out, the writers and the bean counters all high-fived. Expect Possessed to become somewhat harder to find in the coming weeks as well. TRUE

GW sees Decurion style “Formation by Detachment” armies as a Win-Win-Win-Win. They are fluffy, easy to make, “Balanced”, and they can make a lukewarm product (such as Tomb Blades and Possessed) literally fly off the shelves.

In future releases expect 3 distinct flavors of codex: Harlequins, Ad Mech, and other “Mini-Dex’s” that are too small or not flexible enough to turn into full blown Decurions will become very heavily emphasized on support and formation, but not on structure. With Harlequins the formations are what made the army, while the Masque detachment was really just there to fill up space. TRUE

Expect the same thing with Ad Mech, it will be a codex of mostly detachments, and then one rather big FOC for the players who have bought more than a reasonable number of units. Necrons, the deamonkin books, the Eldar and Tau updates, will all revolve around Decurions. Units, such as most aspect warriors, don’t really fit into the FOC in the traditional sense, and GW would literally kill to have Dark Eldar players start buying a few Eldar units. TRUE

Expect the next Eldar book to follow the same formula, a primary detachment of one Autarch, two Guardian Defender squads, one Dire Avenger Squad, and one squad of Jet bikes, and then a formation for each of the aspect warriors and their respective phoenix lord, a tank formation, a wrath formation, a ranger formation, Vypes with a tax, crimson hunters, Avatar with a tax, and then a Farseer with Warlocks for a command detachment. TRUE

Finally there will be the books that only run FOC, with a handful of formation for good taste. These will be mostly Space Marine armies, to represent their ridged but tactical organization, and any “Chaotic” armies, such as CSM and Nids, which will have many formations, but very little on how those have to be played.

Horus Heresy Rumors - Mar 2015
via a Reader here on Faeit 212
confirmed that HH was coming to regular GW stores.

A starter box set for 2 players with 'generic', non-Legion specific Heresy-era units is coming in May. Wasn't specific on plans beyond that, apart from that FW will take care of Legion-specific upgrade packs, unique units and any other stuff that GW doesn't want to run in plastic. TRUE

Apparently the demand for HH stuff has been so intense GW is centralizing the range.
Didn't mention anything about FW in stores though.

I look at your site a lot for rumors and i would also like to further confirm two current rumors.

It's really basic really but i was told recently that the skitarii are confirmed to be coming for 40k by a friend within GW itself. TRUE

Another point i would like to clarify for you is in terms of circle bases for fantasy. My source has always known that i have disliked the fantasy movement tray system; they've told me that fantasy is moving to a circular base system (although not sure how it will work) for all models, unit boxes will also contain less miniatures due to the new system. PARTIALLY TRUE

They sounded pretty convincing and they have no reason to lie to me at all.
Hope this helps you in some way.

No, there is no mention of the Horus Heresy on the pages I have seen. These are codex entries, and the weapon section is titled -Armoury of the Forgeworlds- and then goes on to mention arc weapons, cognis weapons, eradication beamer, all like we talked about before. TRUE

At the very top of the page, it starts off with the text- This section of Codex: Skitarii lists weapons and equipment used by the Skitarii, along with the rules for using them in your games of Warhammer 40,000-

There is no mention of Warhammer 30,000, the Great Crusade, or the Horus Heresy. Just 40k. TRUE

This one is just a rumour. Although an interesting one at that. I know everyone has been afraid of bubblehammer and how warhammer will become a skirmish game. FALSE
Well they may be pleasantly surprised. From what I have heard warhammer skirmish is going to happen. But it may not be 9th edition, in fact there could be a new system released based around a very significant empire city that may have just undergone some hard times. I won't say more as I am unsure on the reliability of this and don't want to give false hope but regardless we will know for certain by the end of February. FALSE

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
-Last weekend in February for the last Endtimes book
-2 Hardcover books 248pages TRUE
First book has picture of Archaon on his fiery steed charging straight at you with flaming sword held to the side TRUE
Second book shows the Archaon model in a very similar pose, but with the Steed's head turned slightly towards the right. TRUE

Necron Rumors - Jan 2015
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
I just saw this latest post about Necrons and it’s not true at all. I don’t know where this guy came up with his stuff but I suspect the source is just making it up.

I should start by confirming that tesla is changing like everyone has been saying. Look
to spacewolves to see how your 6’s don’t work on snap firing. TRUE

The first new thing is a new MC that the Necrons are getting called the Necromancer. Str 6
tough 7 like a bigger destroyer lord. It’s a jump character but does so through phasing in and out of reality(dimensional door is the rule, similar to how deathmarks work). The Str 6 is unmodified, so when you use it with a warscythe it gets bumped up to 8. I don’t know how many wounds it has but I hear it has a resurrection orb effect for everything within 12 inches of it kinda like the rules in death from the skies on the flyers. FALSE

The second
unit I heard about is a new monolith, finally. The new one is like a mix of the
super heavy obelisk and the regular monolith. It’s able to fire its ordnance
weapon AND shoot its side weapons at full ballistic skill but ONLY at flyers,
FMCs, skimmers, and jetbikes. FALSE

Other than that still the same, but one big rule shift is that melta doesn’t work against living metal anymore… again. So Necrons rejoice in your renewed durability. FALSE

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors

via a very solid source on Faeit 212
Let me give you some confirmation:
The setting is being completely overhauled - true. TRUE
The concept of a huge chunks of the world in a sea similar to the warp from 40k - true. PARTIALLY TRUE
Faction reduction to 6 - true FALSE


As for how it interacts with the current rules.
9th edition takes place after the sundering that brought about from the End Times. TRUE

So for the purposes of compatibility, you can use your 8th edition hardback book, representing a section of the culture that hasn't been horrifically changed by the End Times (Recognizing it will have the same drawbacks of using a dated book that are experienced elsewhere). FALSE

You can use End Times rules/concepts, representing a section that is still being torn apart. FALSE

You can use the new, post-end times rules to represent what is "current." TRUE


All the books (again, with the caveat that older books may not be optimal for the new core rules [but truthfully the core rules aren't changing wildly, like 5th to 6th edition 40k, really more of a tidied up 8th edition with a brand new setting]) are designed to be compatible. FALSE

Support will be towards the new book, new setting, however, with End Times being in the past. Viable, but not current.

Expect armies to have fewer units in their core books, which will be heavily focused on the fluff for where they are now, what they've been doing in the centuries immediately following the sundering. This will create a more "balanced" pool as they will be rapidly produced and released (consider a scale even somewhat faster than what we've had for 40k these past few years).

These will then be expanded on with supplements, not intended as money-grabs (as I am sure they will be received by the majority of your readers), but more as guided hands to acknowledge deficiencies in books, or even "global meta" changes. The first time that Games Workshop will be openly acknowledging things that need changes.

These units will typically get white dwarf rules treatments heralding the release in hardback of all of the new units from the previous month(s), for a new setting expansion, which will pit several of the races together (representing a collision).

As these expansions are not permanent in the world, so too will these models not be. They are intended to only get one template injection mold life-run, the same as the books will be printed only once in hardback, then delayed paperback.

They will of course remain legal throughout all of 9th, they will just be more limited eventually, the same as the end time models will not be available forever, the same as XYZ model is no longer available (just with a shorter life span than previous experienced). I mean... you can't get albion models anymore either, but that campaign was before people whined on the internet, so I guess that's why no one's complaining.

This will allow for more new models, as contrary to common belief, the storage and rejuvenation of these templates takes a lot of resources which can be instead dedicated to new ones.

On the topic of round bases. The latest version I saw used round bases, but units had the option of ranking up to receive the typical bonuses. To rank up using round bases, it is intended to use new movement trays which have circular cuts to hold the bases of the appropriate size. FALSE

Nothing stops you from (and in many ways you are encouraged to) maintain unit formation the entire game. But you don't have to. Note that throughout all of Warhammer Fantasy, changing width/depth was an option, it's just rarely seen.

So to summarize - you can skirmish, but it's in your interests to rank up for different reasons, like shield walling before a charge for instance. You can alternatively always hold a formation and move the way we're all used to. FALSE

----

This will be a very big change. It is not because GW doesn't care about its old players and just wants to attract new ones. It is not to fill a void that will come from the fading of Lord of the Rings (which will remain in stores and be supported for a long time due to the agreement with New Line Cinemas). TRUE

It is just a very fresh look at a game that hasn't changed dramatically in how it's played since the dawn of the game and company. It will give everyone the opportunity and hopefully inspiration to do something new, but without invalidating everything from the past. It is opening room for creativity, not closing doors.


Yes, army books will eventually feel too out of date to play, but that's the same with any new edition. And new Army Books will typically allow people to recreate what they're "used to" it just might not be the most effective thing they could do with their new book.

The new faction are basically the opposite of warriors of chaos, but good the way chaos marines are the opposite of space marines but evil (in terms of broad tropes, I really hope this doesn't spawn some kind of debate about the morality of space marines). TRUE

Lastly, nothing stops you from just playing 8th, and ignoring 9th the same way some people ignore End Times. Just understand that unlike Storm of Chaos which was post-production looked at as an "alternate timeline" where the clock was turned back to right before it took place for the purposes of the setting, the End Times are real, and 9th will begin where it left off. TRUE

Ive seen the model so I thought I would chime in and describe the Dunecrawler. Sorry no pictures, it was not possible.

Its a walker with 4 armoured mechanical spider legs. The crew compartment is large metal box angled in the front. There is a small robotic arm in the front with tools and drills on the appendage. The visor for the drivers inside is a slit with optical lenses on the the left hand side of the opening. The Eradication Beamer is big, and looks like a giant conversion beamer, up top there is a gunner with a heavy stubber. I don't know the optional guns, but there are a couple. One that looks like a long barreled autocannon, but has some sort of array attached to it. None of the weapon options look like standard Imperial Weapons. TRUE

BA are indeed pegged for a mid-november release but there will be little or even no model releases at all. FALSE

If there is anything released expect either plastic reclusiarch or sang priest. But no new squad kits or vehicles. FALSE

Bretonnians are not coming in the near future as their own separate release. That said I have heard they are being squashed as a separate army, and will indeed be coming to us in book 4 as part of an alliance. FALSE


Release Schedule Rumors - Sept 2014

Next few week releases are:
- Dark Eldar FALSE

And then: Space Hulk limited edition. FALSE

Eldar Rumors / Supplement Rumors - Sept 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212 ***
An Ulthwé Strikeforce supplement for Codex Eldar is on the horizon with new plastic Warlocks. FALSE
GW realizes that Eldar players can and do field many Warlocks as part of the HQ Council, so they are giving this the dedicated plastic multi-part infantry kit treatment rather than offering only one or two single plastic character clam-pack models (which would put a limit on posing options, etc.) PARTIALLY TRUE

As you know the current Warlock models are very dated, a few of them being Jes Goodwin's "evergreen" sculpts which have stood the test of time since the early 90's. Jes has wanted these classic models to be redone for a long time. The Ulthwé supplement will be the perfect opportunity to release the new kit (which of course will be usable by all Eldar warhosts, not just Ulthwé).

The supplement itself is largely based on Phil Kelly's brilliant Ulthwé Strike Force army list from Codex: Eye of Terror way back in 3rd edition. We can expect the usual background section which will greatly expand on what we know about Ulthwé along with Warlord Traits, wargear, Cities of Death / Stronghold Assault strategems, etc.

I have seen the Voidraven bomber in the list of products on a GW Store computer. Its 81 bucks, I make a bet on it. TRUE

Dark Eldar Rumors - Sept 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212 ***
I saw two new interesting things. The Dark Eldar Archon and Urien Rakarth seem to be getting a price reduction. Not much, but some. If I had to guess, I'd say that it was a plastic transition. Also, there is another entry titled, "Artrax: Dark Eldar." I don't know what that is, but it's listed as the same price as a 7th ed Codex. FALSE

Additionally, I looked into BA and Necrons. I didn't see anything new, but I did see that their Codex's prices are increased to 7th ed levels, leading me to believe that they are on their way.

However, based on my previous information on the possible DE supplements, "Dark Eldar: Wyches" and "Dark Eldar: Covens" I would assume that Dark Eldar are next up. That is simply a deduction of mine with no hard evidence, so take it how you wish. FALSE

Dark Eldar Rumors - Aug 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212 ****
A reduced price Incubi box(which is drastic, it seems, becoming cheaper than Wracks are now). FALSE

Two items named "Dark Eldar: Covens" and "Dark Eldar: Wyches" for the same price as a 7th Ed Codex. Now I can't say with much certainty what these are, but based on their price and title, I think they might be supplements. FALSE

In addition to that, I have seen the normal 7th Ed priced 'Codex: Dark Eldar" TRUE
and the "Codex: Dark Eldar Limited Edition" that is a bit cheaper than others. PARTIALLY TRUE

Also of interest is the "Dark Eldar Tantalus" that I found that is four dollars cheaper than three Terminator boxes. If this Tantalus entry pans out, I would assume it is our version of the Imperial Knight/Baneblade/Stompa. FALSE

Dark Eldar Rumors - Aug 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
He gave me some insight into what he had seen in early drafts of the book from the design team. I would consider these 1-2 star rumors, more of logical speculation on his end based on what he had seen:

- Eldar special rules were being thrown around as an idea, Ancient Doom and a form of Battle Focus that let warriors run/shoot in the same phase and Wyches run/assault in the same turn. FALSE

- Points decreases for the elites and troops sections, by about 1-2 ppm, but increases to raiders, ravagers, and venoms by about 5 points. The net result was units in transports costing about the same. FALSE

- Obviously the model-less characters were taken out - Vect is a lord of war, but baron, duke, malys, and the decapitator are gone. FALSE

- No new unit entries that he had seen, but repackaged models. I asked him about plastic incubi, mandrakes, grotesques and wracks, clampacks or the voidraven, and he said he honestly hadn't seen anything concrete on them, so couldn't say one way or the other but wouldn't be surprised since finecast had been removed from most new books that still had any.

- No info on warlord traits unfortunately, but said that the drug chart was being refined to mesh with 7th ed special rules (specifically, the drug that gives 3d6 run pick the highest is removed, since that is essentially fleet, which many units have already). FALSE

- Confirmed that, as we all knew, the wargear section for haemies was being shortened, possibly turned into relics. Hallmarks like venom blades, huskblades, soul traps, shadow fields, agonisers should still be there in the generic wargear section. In his words, "shocked if they took those out". TRUE

Overall, more of a streamlining similar to the GK dex, but without removing much other than the named characters. Should still play the same, but have more continuity with the current rules, and with the warlord traits and new FOC (didn't elaborate on what it might look like) will have much more added than lost, unlike GK. TRUE

Said he wouldn't be shocked if we also get plastic kits for some of the finecast options, to make the release similar to Orks. Certainly didn't feel like a nerf in his opinion, but did go a long way to limit the viability of things like jetseer lists that relied on the 2++ of the baron.

Fantasy Supplement Rumors - Aug 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
Nagash army will be first of many alliance armies - there will be other in 9th ed - so there won't be free choice alliances, but ready army lists mixing two armies. TRUE

Dark Eldar Rumors - Aug 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
Fantasy 3-Week-Releases. After this Dark Eldar. TRUE

Grey Knight Rumors - Aug 2014
So... They're out there now, people know they're coming so I can talk about them.

It's true that the Inquisition and assassins were cut. Assassins are getting their own update (similar to 4E) which will let them end up in any Imperial Army without necessarily taking an Inquisitor and have some cool narrative missions/kill team missions. TRUE

But we're not here to talk about Assassins.

Grey Knights are definitely getting "stripped" of a lot of the bloat they had before, not necessarily the stuff they had. TRUE

What I mean by that is this codex is C:Grey Knights, and NOT Ordo Malleus.

The focus is on the marines and only the marines. If you want to recreate existing armies, its not difficult you just use the inquisitor codex alongside it. TRUE

The special characters as rumored at gone, BUT the relics section lets you effectively portray them (functionally) on the table. This lets people convert to their heart's content without conflict as to what is/is not the right way to represent one character or another. TRUE

Unlike space wolves and Orks there is no follow up supplement for Grey Knights. It's all in the book already. TRUE

Draigo makes paladins troops, but they have to be 4 or more models or else remain elites. FALSE

Things got a little bit cheaper to bring them in line with the new base marine costs.

Librarians still require terminator armor. TRUE

Land raiders are dedicated transports for strike squads as well. FALSE

Deep striking via teleport got more precise. FALSE

Grand strategies are warlord traits. FALSE

There are 2 new kits only one of which is a vehicle FALSE

Have some very unique rules for when playing against daemons primary. /Both/ armies get buffs (fluff wise because GKs only show up when the situation is super dire) FALSE

So to reiterate: book is about the grey knights and nothing else cluttering it.

If you want the old book, just grab codex: inquisition to go with it.



It's not GWs fault that TOs are limiting people to two sources. The design process was that the book was too bloated with choices that had nothing to do with grey knights, thus didn't need to be there.

Does it mean less options? Sort of, if you only have one book, but in return you get a more balanced army that isn't being weighed against the strength of inquisitorial henchmen when considering the potency of "GK troops," allowing for a much stronger book if you wanted to play just knights.

Crowe doesn't make purifiers troops in the traditional way, but he has a formation that's him with 2-6 units of purifiers in transports. FALSE

In this formation he gets a bodyguard of the new unit that are based roughly on his "story" per se and is the only way to give him a retinue as he is not normally an independent character. FALSE

More will hit the internet soon I'm sure but that's all I can say for now

He is a lord of war
New dreadnought model called murderfang has a storm shield and he has 7 attacks +D3 FALSE

I would consider this to be 100% accurate. This is the same guy who told me about the orks codex and he was spot on.

Space Wolf Rumors - July 2014

Murderfang (Unique) TRUE
WS5 BS3
Furious Charge, It Will not Die, Rage, Rampage, and Murderlust (ignores effects of crew shaken and stunned) TRUE

Space Wolf Rumors - July 2014

Space Wolf Rumors - July 2014
via an anonymous source that gave us the early flyer information

Space Wolf Rumors - July 2014
via an must remain anonymous source on Faeit 212
Your information on space wolves main units is a bit off.

Grey Hunters are not cheaper, they are still 15/model. FALSE

They come with Bolter, Bolt Pistol, grenades, ATSKNF, Counter Attack and Acute Senses. FALSE

They can have one model upgraded to a Wolf Guard, for +10 points, who gets +1Ld/attack and access to wargear. (Same as veteran sergeants, except that if not taken, there isn't a "character" in the unit the way normal sergeants are). TRUE

They can take 1 special weapon, or 2 at 10 man. They are limited only to special weapons and not heavy as per normal. They pay the same points as space marines now, not a discount and not a free one at 10. TRUE

They can also take plasma pistols at 1 per 5 in addition to special weapons. FALSE

They can swap their bolter for a chainsword at no cost, on a model-by-model basis, and it specifies that it must also be represented on the model. FALSE

Wolf banners are still in, but aren't as good and cost 15 points not 10. PARTIALLY TRUE

Bloodclaws are 13 points per model, FALSE
minimum 5 up to 20. FALSE Similar as above for upgrades. Unlike what's in stormclaw, if you upgrade a Bloodclaw to a Wolf Guard he gets +1 WS and BS (to take him to 4/4). They have rage now instead of their former +d3 attacks on the charge.TRUE

Wolf Guard terminators are now an entry, as are Wolf Guard non terminators, so no mixing and matching. No more pack leader separating of Wolf Guard to join other squads. Just upgrades in unit.TRUE

While I'm sure that a lot of people will be flipping over the loss of certain iconic character elements for space wolves, the new stuff in the book isn't just "Wolf This" "Wolf That" and they still remain sufficiently divergent from normal marines, with points costs that are now in line with them. Though I won't deny that they definitely were toned down in a lot of ways (that they weren't really overpowered in by any real means) they have been compensated for by gaining access to things like space marine AA tanks, a new flyer and some really nifty formations.

Logan Grimnar and Bjorn are Lords of War FALSE

Supplement Rumors - July 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
We talked about this months ago
We will be seeing lots more. Campaigns will be a big part of 7th to keep the narrative flowing.

Every other codex will have a campaign bridge with the next.
Like Orks - campaign - Space Wolves
for Example Dark Eldar - campaign - Blood Angels. FALSE

Each campaign is 3 parts.
1. before the box that sets the stage. Roughly alongside the first codex.
2. inside the box for the bulk of the fighting
3. after the box that concludes the campaign. Roughly alongside the second codex.

DV wont be pulled from each release, that's just happening now to make ensure that they all have 7th edition rule books (I don't know if old sets are being opened and then repackaged, but they just don't want 6th being sold). Anyone who bought DV recently btw can get a 7th mini rule book for free if they have their receipt showing the purchase date within a month of 7ths release.

I don't know for sure, but it was mentioned that all narrative boxes (like storm claw) will come with the mini rule book as added incentive, but DV will remain on the shelves as the starter product.

6 months per is roughly accurate. Their life cycles are directly tied to codex releases.

All will have special edition models like Krom and the Ork. That wont be later released separately. They will be box exclusive.

Release Schedule Rumors - May 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212

There may be a supplement this fall dedicated to organized play. With 7th edition Foc really dedicated to the narrative style of play in the new rulebook, this new supplement will cater to pick up games and organize game play. In that regards, previous rumors of percentages and side boards are in as an alternate way to play the game.
The timeline for such a supplement would be this fall before November. Also coming are more regular FAQ's once the new rulebook is released, but with very little interest in Erratas where rules or information are changed. It is felt that once the new rulebook is out, that more effort for FAQs is needed. FALSE

7th Edition Rumors - Apr 2014
FoC removed, percentages added. FALSE

Players have a "sideboard" of up to X number of selections (2-5, bracketed on points, so 1k or less games you have 2 sideboards, at 3k+ you have 5). FALSE

Sideboards can't be more than 25% of the total, or can be none at all. FALSE

They are referred to as "Secondary Detachments." FALSE

They are used for anything from allies to just additional things from your own codex.

If they are allies, then they require an HQ and a troop, and are still bound by the 25% of total. FALSE

Both players are expected to have sideboards.

Sideboarding is now a part of the game, done before deployment but in order of turn priority. So the person going first, picks their sideboard first after learning what race their opponent is playing, and seeing 75% of their army (and the available sideboards). FALSE

The person going second then picks their sideboard, after their opponent has selected, but before either side deploys.
----------------------------
Other tweeks include assaulting as a form of sweeping advance/consolidation. FALSE

The option to flee, in response to being charged (after overwatching) but there is the potential to be swept and the unit charging can (if they have the movement and sweep you) just hit a different unit provided it's in the same rough direction as the unit they swept. FALSE

The main thing I wanted to touch on is sideboards, % based army building, battle brothers being removed and units being able to lock themselves into combat to combat, but simultaneously enemy generals having another tool to avoid combat to counter act this. FALSE

Epic Rumors - Apr 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
Epic:
The Armageddon War is on its way. The starter box contains Blood Angels vs Orks and probably some plastic scenery. Armies will be released in single, fairly large boxes (probably around £50) with fully playable forces straight out of the box. Think half a company of Space Marines + tanks + thunderhawk, or a titan legions box set with an Imperator titan, Warlord titan, and accompanying reavers, warhounds and knights. The initial release will be just Space Marines, Orks, Titan Legions and Imperial Guard. FALSE

The kicker: it will be 10mm scale rather than 6mm. Infantry is currently being tested at 4 guys on a round base but it has been tested at both 5 man and 3 man bases. FALSE

Ork Rumors - Apr 2014
This is a large release with five plastic kits and
two codices - the main codex and one supplement for blood axe freebooterz. FALSE

- a warboss in mega-armour with a "chainblade cleaver" FALSE

- a box that makes 3 behemorks, giant orks, as large as a killa-kan. They are stitched-up painboy experiments with giant chainaxes and a cannon that shoots buzz saw-blades. There is a heavily armoured variant with power drills and some sort of shoulder-mounted beam weapon with a tesla coil muzzle. FALSE

- a tankbusta combokit for the specialist ork squads FALSE

- buggy kit that also makes defflaunchas, halftrakk multiple-rocket-launchers. There is pirate nob either on foot or on the buggy. He was described as a mix of pirate and mercenary. A giant grappling hook replaces his forearm, a custom energy pistol, a bandana and two crossed belts on his breast with trophy fangs. The nob is a new HQ choice called 'ead'unter. FALSE


- The last kit is a battle fortress larger than a baneblade. It has a maritime vibe to it. It is basically a huge platform on three tracks with a round gun turret in the middle and several outer gun emplacements. The gun emplacement are not automated or armoured turrets, but open WW2 flak guns operated by orks and gretchins. FALSE

The platform has the shape of a star like renaissance-era fortresses with corrugated metal rails. There is an engine section at the rear end under the platform with exaggerated exhaust-chimneys and a crane that puts scrabs into a tank mouth. The main turret superstructure looks like an igloo. It has either a cannon with three barrels, each with a different size and length or a command bridge. On the platform there is either a landing platform including a killa kopta, a missile silo or two double-barreled armoured turrets.

The last options allegedly makes the fortress look like a battleship. There are galley-like trenches in the platform where ork passengers huddle. They are either empty or covered by canvas, so you can only see the bulges made by their heads. FALSE

The model has lots of humorous touches. The gretchins all wear spiked bismarck-like helmets. There is an ork bouncer standing at the bulkhead of the command tower. FALSE

40k 7th edition and the new starter kit Beachhead Stygia. FALSE

There are a handful of dice, a ruler, but no blast markers.FALSE

At the same time, there will be a new starter painting kit with 10 snapfit miniatures that will bring the tactical marines from the starter box to a full squad size and gives the ork player 5 additional boyz. It has a 48 page booklet with additional scenarios and hobby guides, brushes, basing sand and glue. FALSE

Wood Elf Rumors - Apr 2014
Wood Elves are out in May. DUPLICATE
They get only a two week release - armybook, magic cards and three plastic kits. It is not a total overhaul and their finecast kits - even the cavalry plastic-finecast-kits - stay valid.
The only exception is the eternal guard. They are dropped completely. The models can be used as war dancers. FALSE

One of the new kits is special because it can be used for several different units. You can build either three hawk riders, which are one hawk and two surfers now, or three giant owl-like monsters called stonefeathers and six waywatchers. On top of that you can build a hero on hawk or on foot. FALSE

The second kit is a war dancer combokit. The second unit wears varying animal masks and shields made of pelt on wooden frames. They have animal claws as weapons. FALSE

The last kit is tree ancient and meadow hag. The former is a giant-sized tree man with a huge beard made of bark. The latter has a crown of leaves and she has a skirt of roots instead of legs. Her hands grow into a web of thorns. FALSE

The rest of the range stays as it is, the finecast kits probably mail order only. FALSE

The wood elves have very dynamic poses because almost all their units are skirmishers again and the sculptors didn't have to worry about spacing. FALSE
Skirmishers work seamlessly with other regiments in 9th edition, so there will be no problem with this play style. FALSE

Knight Rumors - Cost - Feb 2014

preorders for imperial knights are 330 Liras,

Forgeworld rumors - Feb 2014
via a long time anonymous source on Faeit 212 ***
Someone I know has written a mail to FW and pretended to be a "shareholder" and asked for the "Page merge topic". He got back an interesting mail:

Hi ,

These rumors are false. Games Workshop is getting a new Website but we will not be merging with them. We have got plans to update our website but it is not being merged with the Games Workshop website. TRUE

Tyranid Rumors - Feb 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
I have seen the next issue of White Dwarf, and in it is the announcement for the next dataslate for Tyranids, Leviathan Rising II, Tyranid Invasion. There is not much mentioned except that the story of the world Satys invasion continues, and it also contains new rules and scenarios. TRUE

I am imagining since no date is listed, and it says available in its various formats, that the release date will be on Saturday when the magazine is released, or at least available for pre-orders on that date.

Forgeworld Rumors - Feb 2014
via a reader here on Faeit 212
We were chatting about the merger of FW, BL et al and he stated that forge
world would soon be purchasable in GW shops. As in, go into a shop and
order FW stuff then have it delivered to store for collection. He didn't
think they would be getting much / any physical forge world stock. FALSE

Interestingly, the main reason in-store orders of forge world were not done
before was, apparently, a capacity issue. In that forge world don't have
enough resin moulding machines to fulfil the amount of orders they could
potentially get if it was promoted in stores.


However, with GW getting out of resin and moving to all plastics (his
words) the resin moulding machines can be given over to forge world to
increase their capacity to produce. We've already seen the start of this
with forge world taking over fine cast production. They obviously want the
machines to ramp up production of Forgeworld stuff ready for the increased
availability. FALSE

Hello Natfka, I am not normally a rumour guy.

However, I have today seen (and held) something I was not supposed to.
"Astra Militarium Bullgryns" TRUE

Shrink wrapped box ready for sale; I don't know what that implys about
release time.

Three Plastic "Bullgryns" which seem to be armoured Ogryns with large
riot style shields. TRUE
Looked to be on the same bases as the Space Marine Centurians. TRUE
They are painted in a new looking blue/gray urban cammo.
They have armoured looking torsos and loin cloth type things made out
of tank tracks (!). They also seemed to have cybernetic enchancement
(ala Boneheads). TRUE

Looking at the back of the box, there was a small picture indicating
they could also be built as traditional Ogryns, which retain there
T-shirts and Ripper guns look. The Orgryn on the back had a Green T
shirt. TRUE

IG Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
I just want to chime in with a bit concerning the newest rumors of Catachans not going away.

Ever thought about why Marbo, Straken and Harker are still metal and not Finecast? Because this is still the initial production run. There wasn't any need to move them to Finecast because nobody is buying them. Ever thought why the special weapon blister contains 2nd edition miniatures? Those sculpts are old enough to buy a drink in most countries!

Of course GW will tell you that Catachans are not going away. Because you can still play them with the new codex, but just as much as you can still play Vostroyan First Born or Praetorian Guard if you want to.
I wouldn't even be surprised to see them as a supplement in the future.

As far as I know, there won't be any new products or production runs, and Catachans will be moved to "MO only/while stocks last" in the near future. FALSE

Ork Rumors - Jan 2014

They also speculated that the recent campaign running in the US stores is a test for a similar campaign run with the *new* starter set. FALSE

Ork Rumors - Playtest? - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
I have been handed these play test rules for the new ork codex that is meant for a release around the August period.
I must put a HUGE pinch of salt with these as I have never been sent any information before from this person but others I chat to have declared him as trustworthy.

The Orks are due for a August release. FALSE
these rules are meant to be undergoing testing at the start of February.

Ork boyz: 7pts per model FALSE
WS BS S T A I LD SV
4 2 4 4 2 2 7 6+

Special rules: war gear: squad size:
mob rule FALSE (unchanged) slugga 10-30
furious charge (brb) choppa
Waaagh! (to undergo re-balancing)

new rule additions (can be changed/removed at any time):

swamp them: FALSE
if the ork squad is bigger than the enemy it is fighting in close combat then it gain additional attacks. FALSE
if the squad out does the enemy by 10 more models then it gains an extra d3 attacks to their combat FALSE
if the squad out does the enemy by 20 more models then it gains an extra 2d3 attacks to their combat. FALSE

the extra attacks strike at the majority strength of the squad and count as AP -


deff dread: 50pts per model
WS BS S I A front side rear unit composition:
4 2 6 2 4 11 11 10 1 deff dread

new rule additions (can be changed/removed at any time):



stomp & squish: FALSE
gain an additional d3 attacks when declaring a charge.

faulty technology: FALSE
if the deff dread fails a charge it must roll on the following table:

d6 roll: FALSE
1: kaboom - the deff dread malfunctions and is counted as a explode result
2-4: zog it - the deff dread cannot move or charge in the next turn but can shoot
5-6: gotz it - the deff dread is unaffected and may act normal on the next turn.


Killa kans: 30pts per model
WS BS S I A Front Side Rear
2 2 5 2 3 10 10 10

new rule additions (can be changed/removed at any time):

stomp & squish: FALSE
gain an additional 1 attack when declaring a charge.
faulty technology: FALSE
if the deff dread fails a charge it must roll on the following table:

d6 roll: FALSE
1: kaboom - the deff dread malfunctions and is counted as a explode result
2-4: zog it - the deff dread cannot move or charge in the next turn but can shoot
5-6: gotz it - the deff dread is unaffected and may act normal on the next turn.



this just in: storm boyz might get moved to the troops section! FALSE

& a new unit called bomber boyz that can send a single model into a tank/monstrous creature for a instant strength 8 armour piercing hit! FALSE

again all are to be tested.

PENDING Chaos Space Marine Rumors - Long War Supplement - Jan 2014
QnA Session
Thanks for the excellent rumours! 1) is the new vet skill permanent to the squad, unlike a banner?
2) Any idea if it can be used with the BL supplement, or just the codex?

1.Skills are permament. FALSE
2. The supplement can be used with ANY chaos supplement not just the BL supplement. Future supplements may have restrictions on what skills may be taken however

Is FNP purchasable?
FNP is not purchasable I'm afraid

Do you know if all of the skills will be available to all units with VotLW, or if each unit will have a separate selection of skills to choose from? On a related note, will it be a flat cost to upgrade or unit or will different units have to pay different amounts for each skill?
Basically each skill has a list of units underneath it . Any unit on the list may take the skill. Certain units are not on the list due to whatever reason. The example I was given was havoc can't take the fleet skill. FALSE
All skills cost the same no matter what unit takes them.

Are the different legions mentioned in the supplement, or is this just a way to expand upon the Chaos Marine codex? Can you take more than one upgrade?
Yup, there's a limit of three skills I think per squad however. To answer your original question the legions are mentioned in fluff only. The supplement is really just Codex chaos space marines +1. FALSE

if it unlocks Stubborn at a decent unit price.... Man I'll be bringing some big ol CSM blobs to the party.
Stubborn was one of the cheaper skills I think, at around 8 or ten points. I'm not sure if that's a decent price as I don't play sixth ed FALSE


8 or 10 for the whole squad right??
All prices are for the whole unit. Hq's skills are 5pts each FALSE

Can you still take mark upgrades while also taking these vet upgrades?
Marks can still be taken by the squad along with banners.FALSE

what's the projected release date for this mini-supplement?
This is a bit of a mystery to me, it's a week 4 release in the new weekly white dwarf, all I really know is its coming soon. I'm expecting it to be out within 3 months at max FALSE

Can Plague marines take infiltrate? Can Terminators take infiltrate? Does shred apply to all weapons, or just melee weapons? Thanks!
Terminator's can't take infiltrate, plague marines can I believe. FALSE
Shred is for melee weapons only FALSE
I'm not sure about the infiltrate on the thousand sons. Fearless is a skill that pretty much every unit can take, terminator included FALSE

can mutilators get fleet?
I don't think oblits or mutilators can take any skills at all, I will have to double check in a few days time to confirm for certain FALSE

Can HQ's with VotLW take any of the USR upgrades?
Yep, hq's can take the skills, they have access to every skill I think FALSE

If I can put Stuborn on my CSMs and not have it be shot out like the fearless banner, then assuming it's no more then 25 points, I think that will solve the biggest problem for CSMs as a unit, leadership.
Stubborn was around 10 points as far as I can remember FALSE

Will the Rumored models (New CSMs, Lord, Etc.) be released alongside this supplement?
Yesh. FALSE

Is there anything else in this supplement, let's say FOC modification?
Is Infiltration really costy?
Nope its nothing but skills I'm afraid. I'm no too sure if it's a full supplement or a big dataslate. I wasn't paying that much attention to begin with. FALSE
Infiltration is 20pts a unit FALSE
HQ skills are 5pts each FALSE
All other units share the same skill price FALSE

Future?
Future digital products WILL include free stuff for units of a comparable quality to chapter tactics. FALSE

i just want something to give my noise marine rending so i can pretend that they are palatine blades
Rending may be on the skill lists. I can't confirm for a few days FALSE

Does the unit ~have~ to take the VotLW upgrade in order to qualify to be able to take an available USR upgrade on the unit?
For now yes, future downloadable content is likely to change this or make the Votlw upgrade free FALSE

I also suspect that none of the Walkers can benefit from this?
Walkers can benefit from a few skills, tank hunter being one which I can remember currently FALSE

from your perspective is the pairing between the unit and what the skills offer at least viable?
Most units can take the majority of the skill sets. There are essentially pointless upgrade skills but you can still take them for whatever reason. It's very much a choose whatever you want kinda thing FALSE

All I play is Thousand Sons. Not really interested in what happens with Mark of Tzeentch CSMs but I am interested if you could describe what you know about the plastic god-specific bits (if anything)?
Tzeentch heads are similar to the current thousand son heads, on head is also a very nice bird mask helmet. FALSE
Nurgle heads include a mixture of gasmasky heads and a head with its brain exposed. FALSE
Khorne heads are horney, spikey helmetty heads. FALSE
Slaanesh heads include a hellraiser Esq pinhead. Helmets heads have stretched skin, tounges and big speaker grills FALSE

Now, it is a 10man kit? Are there any "sorcerer" looking things, or a tabard? Maybe a nice force staff?
It is a ten man kit, there are a few tabardy things that go in between legs. The spear could be possibly converted to a staff without too much trouble I think FALSE

o Walkers can also get these skills!? All our Walkers? How does this work, as they can't take Veterans of the Long War - They have just access to these skills by default? Will they get further upgrades like Marks/Dedications so they something god-specific?
Just dreadnoughts, predators and land raiders to my knowledge. I'm not sure how it works with vehicles tbh, I will find out and include it hopefully in my next info batch. FALSE
Marks/dedications are not present CURRENTLY


Chaos Space Marine Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
New Supplement
There is a supplement due for release. DUPLICATE
The long war/long crusade
The name itself is a bit of an unknown to me but that's the general gist of it.

Contains fluff on what the legions have been doing for the last 10,000 years. DUPLICATE

Rulewise any model with the veteran of the long war rule may purchase additional specialist skills represented by the universal rules. The skills vary in price with fear being one of the cheapest skills. Certain units may not take certain skills I.e havocs may not take fleet. DUPLICATE

New Box Sets
I had a much more detailed look at the new kits today. The lord is armed with a bolt pistol and mace\maul\club thingy. FALSE

The plastic autocannon on the standard squad sprue is suitable long and dangerous looking. It has the option of being belt or box mag fed. One of the chaos torso is basically a giant mutated demonic face with a piece that glues in in between the torso and legs to represent a big ole mouth. FALSE

The chosen/ regular marine kit has 4 sprues. Two core marine sprues that build 5 complete marines each with either bolter of ccw and bolt pistol. It should be noted that not all ccw are chainblades. The arms are the new style wrist and hand on the gun. There's then the command/ chosen sprue which contains power, special, heavy and combi weapons. This sprue also includes torso and head options along with lots of add on pieces. The final sprue contains all your god bits and icons and is smaller than the other sprues FALSE

IG Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
We have heard rumors about GW streamlining their range, and one of the things to go are the Catachans. They have sold very poorly in the last couple of years and GW will drop them for good. I already said that the new IG codex will be completely Cadia-centered, and it seems that GW is going to change the background of the IG in a away that portraits Cadia-pattern equipment being widespread throughout the galaxy and being kind of the standard equipment for all "normal" regiments. Emphasis on regional "exotic" regiments will be largely toned down . FALSE

In contrast to that there will be supplements for both Death Korps of Krieg and Elysian Drop Troops soon after the codex release. GW is not going to invest the extra money needed to produce an additional regiment, and the IG release will already need a lot of new sprues if we expect a new veteran infantry set, new artillery tanks and a new flyer or walker. FALSE

For the same reasons Rough Riders will be dropped from the army list (much like most entries without models got cut from the tyranid codex). FALSE

Chaos Space Marine Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
gw have identified a number of issues with the chaos line with the main 3 being 1. The dated look of a number of models. 2. The hybrid nature of many kits 3. The lack of a generic non God marked lord outside of dark vengeance FALSE

There is to be a plastic clampack lord released in suitably ornate armour. The lord is mono posed and comprised of 5 pieces. This model has supposedly been designed as to be easy to kit bash/convert to allow chaos players to use the new updated power armour bits on. FALSE

Regarding the chosen. All power weapon variants are in the box with the lance and axe sharing the same body but with a separate head piece. Icons are included as is a number of God specific pads and heads. The kit has an "outrageous" number of head options. FALSE


Regarding the havoc. The havoc and new chosen/ standard marine kit share a core sprue containing 5 complete marine's. The havoc then has a number of unique sprues containing weaponry, backpacks and torso options. The havoc also boast an impressive number of heads with many appearing as mk2/3 heads with optical upgrades. FALSE

Tyranid Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
Mycetic spores and some other choice tyranid units will see a return via Forgeworld alongside downloadable rules intended for use in standard 40k games. FALSE

Dark Angel Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
GW wants to release an update for the Dark Angels.
This update would be to allow the Dark Angels players to use the tactica unlocked by Unique Independant Character during tournament. Due to some tournament not allowing to use Unique Characters, like Samael, Belial and Azrael, the Dark Angels could only play as marines without much possibilities. And with the 6th Space Marines Codex, the Astartes are now allowed to play Bikes Armies in Tournament, and the Dark Angels aren't. It would probably be special rule for captains or new non-unique captains for Death Wing and Raven Wing. PARTIALLY TRUE

Chaos Space Marine Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
One of the new kits would be a plastic havoc boxset. With lots of bits to add to the models. DUPLICATE

On the release date it's implied that the kits would be released in the 4th week of the month in the new weekly white dwarf. FALSE

Got a bit of a news item for you. I've seen a few pictures of a sprue with a number of finished models. The sprue and models in question are for a new chaos space marine infantry kit. They are supposedly intended to be a replacement for the standard chaos infantry kit but also have options for chaos chosen within the kit ala the space wolves packs' wolf guard. FALSE

Design wise the models seemed to be a mix of ornate and non ornate armour pieces. There were a number of power weapons, combi weapons and what looked to be an autocannon in plastic. I was told that hopefully their release would not be far off and would be released with a few other chaos kits. FALSE

I have had news to report for a few months now and I just can't hold it in any longer.

Ok so here is the news, about a few months ago I was in my local hobby shop when I saw an old friend. He had said that GW had just been bought out by the same corporation that owns Hasbro Toys a few months ago. I thought I would share seeing as all the changes GW is going through. FALSE




Necron Rumors - Fort - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
"It is possible that we're going to see a new Fortification exclusively in Necron armies (including FW Harvest army).
The Fortification would be a Necron-Style Aegis Defense line, restricted to the Silent Armies of the Necrons." FALSE

New Release Schedule Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source from the Faeit 212 inbox.
I just got off the phone with the GW rep for my store.

He informed me that the new weekly white dwarf would be here for sale on the 31st. The new weekly dwarf will have rules again (a big deal for my customers) TRUE
will have a retail cost of $4 US, TRUE
GW will buy back unsold issues so we can get a bunch and not worry about how many are going to sell.

The new release schedule will break up the model and codex release for each month with the codex being in the second week.

week 1 Model, TRUE
week 2 codex+cards,TRUE
week 3 model,TRUE
week 4 model and black library;

Bret Rumors - Jan 2014
via another reader on Faeit 212
According to one rumor, Bretonnia is going to be squatted as an independant army. They are going to instead pull a Black Templars with the Empire, calling the book "Kingdoms of Men" or something like that. FALSE

Now, I am not sure how valid this is, given word of mouth is not a reliable source of rumor - so I suggest you check with your sources first. However, this would explain why various options are being pulled.

As for the doom and gloom, there's a bit of a silver lining. Old Empire players might remember a time where more exotic units like Kislevite Lancers and Dwarfs were kicking around with the Empire. The newer book probably isn't going to be like that, but it might be possible one could use the new book (if true) to represent Araby, Nippon, Cathay, Kislev etc, etc as well as Bretonnia. FALSE

Dwarf Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
I can confirm that Dwarves are indeed due within the next few weeks.
Models Rumours:
Core Troopers won't get a new box. TRUE

Light Armor Infantry Box is Slayers and a second build I couldn't
recognize. They look indeed weird, however the Slayers are more dynamic
than I'd expected them to be. FALSE

Heavy Armor Infantry Box is Hammerers/Ironbreakers dual build. They look
just so much better than their older versions, quite some variation
considering their former lack of such. FALSE

The "War Altar" is a dual build of Throne and Anvil I believe. It wasn't
quite clear, but it seems to be possible to give a "regular" Dwarf King a
toned done version of the Throne. FALSE

The plastic clampack character looks amazing. Simply. Amazing. TOO VAGUE

The Gyrocopter is quite a lot better than the previous one, but not quite
as good as it could have been. But it is a lot bigger, the dwarf isn't
really that much sticking out It blends in nicely with the rest of the army. FALSE

The Tunneling Vehicle looks pretty awkward considering the awesomeness of
the rest of this release. I think the rumoured "big cannon" could be a dual
build with this one, it looks pretty much twice as good as the Tunneling
Machine, especially considering how much potential there was. FALSE

Rules Rumours:
Pretty few that I know about, but here it is:
Playing Style: The playing style will be quite similar to the previous one,
but with a wider variation of possibilities. Ironbreakers will be even
harder to crack open while Hammerers are No-brainers (Dwarves are slow,
but those can hit like a meteorite if they get you!). TOO VAGUE
Cannons are a bit toned down but are still as accurate as always. I think
there's a decent chance of not having a single misfired shot within
multiple games. FALSE

White Dwarf Rumors - Jan 2014
via a must remain anonymous source on Faeit 212
White Dwarf Visions (New White Dwarf), is coming soon, February 1st, and there will be new issues every Saturday. TRUE
The prices are as follows, and will only be sold at GW Stores and Independents.... no newstands. TRUE
- £2.40, ?3.20, US$4, CA$5, Aus$6, NZ$7, 25rmb, 12zl, 500¥, 30dkr, 35skr, 35nkr

Whats being revealed is that the magazine will be 32 pages of whats new and exciting in the hobby this week, new reelases and other news. There will also be new features that will include hobby oriented material, like techniques for painting and modeling, and new rules, and new authors. TRUE

White Dwarf Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
There will be an announcement this Saturday. The monthly White Dwarf magazine is history. There will be a small weekly white dwarf magazine and a new monthly magazine, called "warhammer: visions", 230 pages strong(!!!). This will start in February. DUPLICATE

Also there is a meeting in February for every European "black shirt" in England. Maybe for the new GW website, including FW. DUPLICATE[/b]



via a must be kept anonymous source on Faeit 212
As a heads up, you're going to be getting emails about "weekly white dwarf mini magazines." DUPLICATE
It's called White Dwarf Visions and it's true. DUPLICATE
They will focus on talking about the hobby and community more so than being a sales magazine. PARTIALLY TRUE

IG Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source from the Faeit 212 inbox.
Regarding the Leman Russ:
Vehicles & Ordnance Weapons: Unlike other units, vehicles can move and fire with Ordnance weapons, but can only make Snap Shots with its other weapons that turn. FALSE
A vehicle that remained Stationary can fire all of its weapons, including Ordnance weapons. FALSE

An interesting note:
Ignore cover USR: the target receives -2 on it's cover save. Template weapons ignore all cover saves. FALSE
Vehicles ignore the "Gets hot" USR. [FALSE

IG Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
Maybe next edition it'll be good again, but it looks like no changes to the Lemon Russ this time around. FALSE
Still front armor 14, still rear 10 or 11, and still 3 hull points as a heavy vehicle. TRUE

The only change we might be seeing is new rules on how they squadron, forcing them to deploy within 6" (or enter from reserve together) but otherwise operate independently from then on. FALSE

This could see a return of the Russ since it'd be 1 heavy support slot but get potentially 3 into the army freeing room for other heavies... but it's still very pricy and very .. er.. crummy. FALSE

Forgeworld Rumors - Jan 2014
via an anonymous source here on Faeit 212
1) Forge World/Games Workshop Ltd is in Texas looking for a distribution warehouse. There was talk about limited production capacity as well. FALSE
2) Forge World/Black Library/Games Workshop merger is still "in the works" as you have mentioned or been kept up on. FALSE
3) Look for some plastic kits being pulled from shelves in GW retail stores starting February. I dont think any are scheduled for discontinue, they are just being moved to direct sales only. Likely starting with Tyranids, as February they go into the shelf proper from New Release section. Looks like the various 'gaunts boxes will be first to be pulled. TRUE


40k Rule Rumors - Hull Points and LR - Jan 2014
via a must remain anonymous source on Faeit 212
The team really likes hull points as they are right now

As for Hull Points and the differences between vehicles, the Russ is getting an update to make it more durable (not just a 4th hull point but it's very hard to hurt from the front in more than just having a higher AV). FALSE


40k Rule Rumors - Lords of War - Jan 2014
via a must remain anonymous source
FW super-heavy type models will just get their rules printed into the codex under the Lords of War sections. FALSE

Blood Angel Rumors / Necron Rumors - Dec 2013
via an anonymous source the Faeit 212 inbox
A friend that works for GW mentioned to me that he had seen new Blood Angels
Marines being worked on. He also said that they were snap fit models from
what he could tell. PARTIALLY TRUE

A few weeks before that, the same guy mentioned seeing Necron Warriors with
different looking Gauss flayers. He also mentioned a new Unit, a Necron
Warrior in a Suit, like the Centurions. He had been told those were new
Necron Destroyers. FALSE

7th Edition Rumors - 40k - Dec 2013
via an anonymous source from the Faeit 212 inbox
There will be no 7th edition or 6,5 edition of Warhammer 40k during the summer of 2014. FALSE
The Games Workshop team isn't interested in compiling the existing rulestets yet, since the edition is not over yet. In fact, our distributor (the main distributor ) received news that the WHFB 9ed is indeed coming this year - he didn't mention when exactly. So 40k fans don't keep your hopes up. FALSE

7th Edition Rumors - 40k Edition Release - Dec 2013
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212 (solid source)
The next edition of 40k will be called 7th, not 6.5 when it drops,TRUE
but as far as rules go it will be less of a jump than 5th to 6th. TOO VAGUE

The key areas being updated:
Interceptor, sky fire, fortifications, lords of war, allies and data slates. TRUE

As for its release it'll probably be September not "the summer." FALSE

It's not finished yet, still being tested so anything can happen. FALSE


The thought behind this edition is to make the game less alpha strike explosive and more "competitive" at all points values (even when including Lords of War), but D weapons outside of apocalypse may see alternate rules. TRUE

ps
Pistols in close combat in 7th


Tyranid Rumors - Nov 2013

Apex Biomorphs, max one of each per detachment:
1. Synapse range is reduced but grants Eternal Warrior. Can be taken by any
HQ (not Troop Tervigons or HS Trygon Primes). FALSE
2.Twin boneswords, AP2, for every wound inflicted on a 5+ the model regains
a wound. For Primes and Tyrants. Regular boneswords are AP3 by the way. FALSE

3. Virus spore barrage (Ordnance, Poisoned 3+, unlimited range, one-shot,

the template remains on the board until the end of the game). FALSE

A bit hazy but saw a flamer in there that could be taken by Tyrants and
Tervigons only (AP3?) FALSE
and a 3+ carapace that grants a 2+ and EW if the model didn't run/glide. FALSE

Release Schedule Rumors - Dec 2013

Expansion Rumors - Escalation / Stronghold - Sep 2013
via an anonymous source that has the book from the Faeit 212 inbox
1.a. Void Shields are provided by Void Shield Generators, a completely separate structure that has a datasheet without a picture (It's Forbidden by Inquisitorial Decree) so making the structure is pretty much up to you at this point. The Projected Void Shields special rule project a 12" area of effect (measured from any point of the building) that can overlap, anything inside that is shot hits the AV12 shield. When the shield is hit it rolls as normal for against a vehicle, and if the shield is Glanced, Penetrated or ANY SINGLE HIT from a Strength D weapon, the Void Shield collapses. At the end of the turn of the player who controls a collapsed void shield, they can roll to restore it on a 5+. TRUE
1.b. You can also purchase void shields (25 points) as a building upgrade for the following: TRUE
- Bastion
- Wall of Martyrs Imperial Bunker
- Wall of Martyrs Firestorm Redoubt
- Fortress of Redemption
- Aquila Strongpoint
They all follow the rules as stated above, but do not project the void shield past anywhere except the building itself.

2. I am afraid that Xenos get the shaft here again, however the Void Shield Generator and the new Promethium Relay Pipes (Explained momentarily) have no picture, so those who enjoy the conversion aspect are free to create their own designs to represent these pieces. TRUE
There are, however, a number of upgrades that are catagorized under either:
- Building Upgrades (Void Shields, Booby Traps, Searchlights, etc.) TRUE
- Obstacles (Tanglewire, Barricades and Tank Traps) TRUE
- Battlements &; Battlefield Upgrades (Ammo Dump, Comms Relays and Gun Emplacements Icarus Lascannon/Quad-Gun) TRUE
Every building has the option to take some of these upgrades, including the Aegis Line (Which can take Obstacles only.)

The Promethium Relay Pipes (40 Points) can be taken as 3 long and 4 short pieces (A la Aegis Line) and must be placed together, they grant a 4+ cover but on the roll of a 6 cover save you must roll a further D6 and should you roll a 1 a small explosion occurs and the unit being shot at takes D6 S4 AP5 hits which ignore cover and are randomly allocated. Vehicles are hit on the nearest Armour Facing. However, the special rule: Fuel Siphon allows any flamer weapon fired by a non-vehicle unit within 2" of the Relay Pipes to change its type to Heavy from Assault or Pistol. Doing so will allow the Flamer weapon to gain the Torrent special rule. TRUE

3. There are 3 Fortification combination which allow for anywhere from "budget" Strongpoint combos to be made to all out impregnable Fortresses. These are:
- Imperial Strongpoint (1-3 Imperial Bastions, 1-5 Aegis Defence Lines, 0-1 Skyshield Landing Pad, 0-1 Honoured Imperium (<--yep gets="" it="" its="" own="" p="" rules.="">- Void Relay Network (1-3 Promethium Relay Pipes, 1-3 Void Shield Generators, 0-1 Honoured Imperium) TRUE
- Wall of Martyrs Imperial Defence Network (1-3 WoM Imperial Bunker, 1-4 WoM Imperial Defence Lines, 1-3 Imperial Defence Emplacements, 0-2 WoM Firestorm Redoubts, 0-2 WoM Vengeance Weapons Batteries) TRUE
All of these cost no extra points other than the point cost of the models themselves and the upgrades you give them. TRUE
The Tempestus Firebase cannot be made as the Aquila Strongpoint does not figure into any of these Fortification Combinations. TRUE

4. I haven't gone over in fine detail yet, the artwork is absolutely fantastic though some brand new pieces depicting the Howling Griffons Fortress Monastery, an intense assault by Tyranids on the Imperial Guard frontlines with macrocannons belching warheads in the background and more Tyranids assaulting the Ultramarine held positions in a fantastic 2-page spread. (At no point do you see Tyranids holding the line, which would've amused me to no end.) TRUE
The book also contains updated rules for buildings which I've not been over yet (went to dinner) but will have a look at soon enough.


Assorted tid-bits:
- Jump infantry and Jet Pack infantry are allowed to embark inside fortifications that are buildings. TRUE
- Jump, Jet, Jetbike and Skimmer units do not take dangerous terrain if they start or end their movement on battlements. TRUE
- Buildings with units hit by a template weapon also take a hit as well. TRUE
- There is an updated Building Damage Chart that reaches 7 (Detonation) TRUE
- I have not yet run into any instances of the Escalation Expansion being referenced in the book, but I can't see anywhere in the book where it wouldn't be compatible. (Although I don't have Escalation, so what the heck do I know? :p) TRUE

FAQ Rumors - Nov 2013
via an anonymous source from the Faeit 212 inbox
There is some talk about GW still working on a new App. It is supposed to launch with the new website next year. FALSE

It will be a full-fledged App allowing online purchases and, maybe more interesting, allowing GW to better enforce DRM for their digital books (i.e. the purchase of an ebook from GW will be linked to the account and can only be used through this account). The bright side is that it is supposed to include an army builder (this might be build into a new format of digitial codex), the downside is that it might be the end of the regular printed codex book. Collector's editions are selling so well that GW is considering to only offer the limited edition printed book "while stocks last" and the ebook version. FALSE

Orcs, supposed to be released after the launch of the new website, will be a kind of trial run offering all three versions of the codex (Collector's edition, new style digital codex and "normal" codex) with a big campaign to persuade customers of the advantages of the digital product. FALSE

In this regard, actual army lists might disappear from the Collector's editions. Instead they will include a version of the digital codex. This is considered to get rid of the FAQ/Erratas, those will be entirely solved through database updates on the App. FALSE

A lot of the bits described (respirators, plants, NVGs, some of the heads, some of the CC weapons, etc) were actually looted from other plastic kits (Command Squad and the like) and won't be on the sprue for the new box. They were used to create some kit-bash conversions to show what can be done with the new set and a bit box. FALSE

The described "Inquisitor" with a greatcoat over carapace armor is an option for the Sergeant for people who want to build their miniatures "Arbites-Style". Arbites won't be an option in codex, but you'll still be able to get Veterans in carapace with combat shotguns yelling "I AM THE LAW!". FALSE

Escalation gives each army access to at least one Lord of War that are for 'regular' 40k games. There appears to be a difference from Apocalypse and regular 40k games, but the exact rules for them I do not know. Any Lords of War though are expensive in points, and I have been told that the Khorne Lord of Skulls matches the point value found in apocalypse, sitting at 888pts. TRUE

There are only certain units that are in escalation, so no others are allowed for regular 40k games. There are only 16 listed in the new book. As to the point level of the games, there is mention of 1500 or 2000pt games. Here are the known models that can be used for regular games in Escalation.

The difference now though is that the troop choice can be the retinue, full of fun stuff, or the retinue can be an HQ choice without taking a slot so that you can take storm troopers. FALSE

It's not a full codex in a sense, you'll find fast attack and heavy support a little light on options. TRUE

It's the first of what will be ally intended codexes which as I explained about a year ago can stand alone, but not with the same breadth as other armies. TRUE

Also, immediately afterward we'll be seeing the Forgeworld forces of the space marines and inquisition to update all those rules as well. " TRUE

Supplement Rumors - Fortification Supplement - Oct 2013

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
there's a supplement that's divided by race with new fortifications and also new racial upgrades to specific fortifications. zionFALSE

Currently it's being playtested as requiring a detachment of the race to upgrade the fortification, but that might change (everyone's been using imperial stuff for a long time now). FALSE

Just to be clear, the base of the fortification such as bastion, aegis, fortress, etc will all be the same, just the upgrades/guns that will be racially specific. FALSE

In so far as models, expect only imperial versions, and a modeling section on converting building racially inspired fortifications. FALSE

The book will have the rules for all the currently released fortifications plus a couple new ones (with models) and then as mentioned rules for racial upgrades. FALSE

Book of Tzeench early winter, FALSE

A Servo-Harness for Captain/CM, also gaining the rules of Blessing of the Omnissiah, though not gaining the chapter trait for the 1+, letting techmarines and MoF still have that little niche. Weither it can be used with Terminator Armour is still up in the air. FALSE

A standard upgrade is also being added to the choices for characters, which is a 1+ to FnP, something about robotic limbs. FALSE

Also Techmarine's may be an upgrade to Tactical Squads/Purchased per Tactical Squad, not sure which the hint was very very held-back. FALSE

40k Supplement Rumors - Sep 2013
via an anonymous source
Codexes aren't slowing down, but supplements are ramping up and will see model releases coinciding with them. FALSE

Either redoes of old kits (Khorne Berserkers for example), and then new kits entirely. FALSE

Rules in the boxes are a very likely reality for these new kits to make the supplement not a required purchase. I realize that this goes against the Internets opinion of GW, but they are not trying to make supplements mandatory purchases, but exactly what they are: supplements. FALSE

Release Schedule Rumors - Sep 2013
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
- NO Mystery-Box TRUE
- Dark Elves will be spread over 2 months (October + November) because all but 3 boxes will be remade. It?s going to be the largest release this year and will be followed by some events in the GW Games Stores. TRUE
- Tyranids are delayed till January (It was mentioned that they always were to be released in January but i?m not able to proof that)
- Supplements will not be released more than one per month but will see a regularly release every month next year like the codices were this year and will indeed have new model waves. TRUE
- the boxes for the Christmas packs will include just valuable units. It?s questionable what this means but I guess they want to sell them this time and therefore go with common units/-combinations TRUE

Forgeworld Rumors - Sep 2013
*via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
I have good news.

Good news is, it does look like it's FW will make it's way onto the new GW site, which will be a lot better than just a giant shopping cart. FALSE

If this goes through it means that people will be able to pay for Forgeworld items through Games Workshop Hobby Center's. FALSE

unlike GW items Forgeworld purchases won't be able to "ship to Hobby Center." They'll need to go to a customer's home address, as they will still be subject to duty if outside the UK. FALSE

This will hopefully be resolved either before launch or soon after, where Forgeworld orders will be compiled into large volumes sent out bi/tri-weekly to local shipping centers for North American/North Asia/ SE Asia/Australia and then redistributed to Hobby centers, and bypass duty costs. FALSE

World Eaters, Thousand Sons, Death Guard, Emperor's Children, Iron Warriors, Alpha Legion, Word Bearers and Night Lords will all get their due treatment and be fleshed out into characterful factions. FALSE

Warzones however we're going to start seeing a lot more of, which will coincide with codex launches or between them to bridge codexes together (expect one for Tyranids and Ultramarines). FALSE

This is from a supposed playtesting document I was able to flip through ( I have no way to verify that this was actually a real playtesting document, but I thought most of it sounds pretty reasonable):

New Veteran ability allows charging out of transport. FALSE

Special Weapon and Heavy Weapon Squads are now 10 men each. FALSE

Vendetta is gone, instead Valkyries can take the Vendettas-loadout for +45 points. FALSE

Only one entry for Sentinels, FALSE
no armor upgrade, closed cabin has no game effect but is just cosmetical. FALSE

Thunderer/Destroyer is in, FALSE
Thunderer is a cheap Demolisher with nothing but a hull-mounted Demolisher cannon. FALSE
Destroyer is a dedicated tank hunter with a laser-lance weapon. Have a, hull-down? rule that makes them extremely hard to kill if in cover, seem to be area-control units. FALSE

There was talk about a new Cadian Veteran plastic set, 5 miniatures with all options. FALSE

Heavy Weapon Squad will be repacked to include one sprue of standard Cadian infantry. FALSE
Special Weapon Squads might get their own box with a new special weapon sprue (which is also used for Veteran box). FALSE

Adeptus Mechanicus Rumors - August 2013
via An Anonmyous Source on Faeit 212
Some insights into models that are coming down the track.

A:I have seen a plastic adeptus mechanicus sprue with servitors and human sized (i.e. not space marine) adepts. This definitely exists because I have seen it, so don't confuse it with my second point, although I don't know where it fits in with the release schedule. FALSE

B: for over a year I have been seeing various photos of greens, and CAD print outs - so not just concept sketches - for imperial models that are familiar to the inquisition books. I have seen custodes-style models, arco-flaggelants, and ogryn-sized servitors (greens) - as well as a pretty big tank that looks like a cross between a land raider and a leman russ, in the style of the exorcist (CAD). FALSE

it seems to have become common knowledge in circles that A) the studio has definite plans for all this, and that B) there will be a 'new' race army book at some point at the end of this edition, similar to Dark Eldar.

'like Dark Eldar' I simply meant that, from the business's perspective, Dark Eldar were a new race when they got their latest codex and models. So 'new race' doesn't necessarily mean something like Tau in 2001, and I'm fully expecting it to be an imperial faction. PARTIALLY TRUE


A and B may be unrelated. But, based on this, I am guessing that either that this is where sisters of battle will end up, or that their relaunch will be refocused on the weirder parts of the Imperium. I just want to make it clear though, I've never seen a new sisters of battle sculpt

2 HQ 6 Troops 3 Elites 3 Fast Attack 3 Heavy Support

And can take an optional

1 HQ 2 Troops (not minimum 1, up to 2, but instead MUST take 2 and then...) FALSE

And if they do, it unlocks
1 Elite 1 Fast Attack 1 Heavy Support.

Only an HQ from the core can be warlord. ALREADY TRUE


Then the diversity comes into play.

Hive Fleets now have different rules (think chapter tactics). Your secondary brood can be from a different hive fleet. Not representing two fleets working together, just similar evolutionary strains. FALSE

There are also army wide FoC changes based on your Hive Tyrant. Wings give you the option to take Gargoyles as your compulsory troops (so max 2) for instance. Bonded carapace let's you take Carnifex's as elites as well as heavy support (but can't be more than a certain number of points, so they end up kinda baby). FALSE

They have some really cool adaptations for skyfire. FALSE

Warriors can be purchased as sergeant style upgrades for gaunts and gargoyles. They get the biomorphs of the brood and are not attached like wolf guard. FALSE

Tyrannofex will see a points decrease. TRUE

Pyrovore will see torrent. FALSE

Ranged biomorphs contribute to a model's close combat. FALSE
Melée biomorphs enhance a model's ranges attacks. FALSE
You take some biomorphs that affect both, like +1 str to both. FALSE
But having a gun makes melée better and having melée weapons improves your guns. There's some new synergy there. Mostly for big bugs. FALSE

The Salamanders squad is for the pre-heresy book coming christmas. They're modified tartaros pattern terminators. Kind of like ornate "artificer" versions.

Imperial Guards will have access to all their tanks in plastic with the release of their new codex. TRUE

Nobz in Mega Armor TRUE
and new War Buggies and Traks are getting new models with their new codex also. FALSE

Supplements will not be providing new model kits until after all of the 6th edition codexes are up to date. Furthermore, if a new unit is introduced, it will be available to the core codex as well. PARTIALLY TRUE

Just over half the space marine chapters of the first founding will receive a supplement. FALSE[/b]

The mono-god legions will NOT be getting a supplement. It's felt they are well enough reflected in the codex. Iron Warriors, Night Lords, Word Bearers were given as Examples of Chaos Legion Supplements FALSE[/b]

Out of the four remaining craftworlds, there's only plans to turn three of them into supplements. FALSE[/b]

Tau are not scheduled to get a single additional supplement, but instead there's going to be three!!! FALSE[/b]

Black Templar Rumors - July 2013
Neophytes:
Scout Stat line. TRUE
They do not take up a force organization slot, but count as troops for all intents and purposes (Scoring etc). FALSE

They do not have infiltrate, or move through cover. They also are not subject to rage after taking a casualty. TRUE
The number of Neophyte Squads you can take equals the number of Initiate, Assault, Bike and Sword Brethren squads total you have in the army. FALSE

Sword Brethren Terminators do not increase this limit. FALSE

Once purchased, as a 5-10 unit choice they are their own selection. FALSE

When deploying Squads with the Crusade keyword (Initiates, Assault, Bikes) you can attach a Neophyte squad to it. This then becomes one unit for all intents and purposes for the remainder of the game and cannot be split. FALSE

If the squad numbers 5 models, Neophytes can buy Bikes. They cannot buy jump packs. They come with bolt pistol and CCW and they cannot take special weapons. Those on bikes can upgrade to grenade launchers though. Neophytes can take shotguns FALSE

If you don't want to attach them, you can just deploy them as their own unit. FALSE

From what it seems, you can put Neophytes with bikes into squads without bikes, and vice versa. FALSE


Initiates:
Initiates have the stats of a basic marine, except their BS which is 3. It's +1 point per model (and the whole squad has to buy it), to get up to BS 4. For 1 more point, you swap their chainsword for a bolter. They are 10-20. Only assault special weapons (meltaguns, plasmaguns or flamers) can be taken. No heavy weapons. Instead of assault weapons they can take power weapons. They can replace both their BP and CCW for a Heavy Chainsword. They do not have sergeants, and are leadership 8. FALSE

Yes it's possible to take 20 Initiates and 10 Neophytes it seems. FALSE

Castellans:
Castellans are a 0-3 per slot elites choice. They are independent characters and take on vows that are reminiscent of oaths of moment from the books. Things like taking objectives, or defending them till the end and confer that benefit to initiates (or better) that are in the same squad as them. They can't take more than one vow and vows have different point costs. They get access to all sorts of interesting wargear, and unique wargear. They do not have to take wargear or vows, and are more expensive than a wolf guard, despite having the same stats. They are leadership 9. FALSE


Black Templar Rumors - July 2013
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
Neophytes get their own unit entry, 5-10 unit size, they're 0-X max, where X = squads with the crusader keyword (crusader squad, sword brethren, assault squads, bike squads). It seems like the terminators either don't take squires anymore or they fall under sword brethren. FALSE

They get attached to squads with the crusade keyword at the start of the game when the main squad is deployed or they can be deployed independently. FALSE

They're troops, but if they are attached to a unit they take on whatever squad type the parent squad is. Otherwise though they take up no force org. FALSE

Initiates come with bp/ccw and grenades, one in 5 can take an assault gun, and their squad size is 1-20. 11 points each. They can replace their weapons with blotters for a price. They're bs3, and can buy bs4 for a price. FALSE

Can take land raiders as dedicated transports at a really decent price reduction. FALSE

All power armoured models roll 3D6, pick the two highest to charge. Casualties they take from overwatch are done after initiative 1 attacks are resolved and before combat resolution using the new "closest models." (basically distributed as CC) FALSE

1-3 per choice elite champion-like model who takes vows. Vows are a lot like dark angel banners and revolve around objectives (defending or taking), but only apply to the unit they've joined and are a bit more toned down. Reminiscent of space wolf oaths. FALSE

HQs get access to better vows, and are different for chaplains and Captains. Emperor's champion is only required in games over 1500 points, does not take up an HQ slot and does not have macro-vows anymore, instead... FALSE

The army buys a vow for 0-40 points for every 1,000 or more points the army is. You can only buy one vow and it basically stacks in cost the bigger the army is. FALSE

Some vows are cheaper than others. FALSE

Vows have either an anti- psyker or xenos feel. FALSE

Wargear is significantly cheaper for BT characters. FALSE

Squads that have taken casualties are subject to rage for the remainder of the game.FALSE

Black Templar Rumors - July 2013
via a good anonymous source on Faeit 212
In so far as Black Templar: They are getting a full book not a supplement. FALSE
The direction of the book is on "crusades," and differentiating the Black Templar when they persecute Xenos as opposed to when they put the Witch to the sword. FALSE

They are seeing a lot of changes from their previous incarnation, and are no longer a shooting army (despite the intention of the previous book, they were received as a shooting army). FALSE

The army will have a "knights in space" kind of feel with wargear being a very big importance for the characters, and vows similar to old bretonians. The struggle there is with book keeping, but it is a pretty cool concept. FALSE

Crusade squads with their hybrid neophyte and space marine combinations are gone. Which will probably anger a lot of people without pleasing any (since in the past you could just take 0 neophytes so in essence this is just removing choices), but take it for what it's worth. FALSE

The whole "move after taking casualties" thing is gone and has been replaced with something more similar to battle trance (but less swift, and more assault oriented). FALSE

Templar point costs are down even from those of dark angels, and are designed to be balanced by their point cost, but also deliver the feeling that this is a "crusade army" that has never really felt the yoke of the codex astartes, and thus has huge companies of marines. FALSE

Release Schedule Rumors - Jul 2013
via an anonymous (and solid) source on Faeit 212
As currently planned, the Ravenguard supplement will be after the 6th edition space marine book (which will be soon) and will coincide with forgeworld's HH Book 3, Massacre pt 2. FALSE

In the coming months though we are going to be smothered (pleasantly) in space marine goodies, with every other or every third month releasing a space marine supplement, after the main book comes out. PARTIALLY TRUE


These releases will be paired with alongside a Xenos they were famous for fighting.
i.e. Tyranids book month A, Ultramarine Supplement month B. Ork codex month C, Crimson Fist supplement month D, etc. (this is not an accurate release schedule, just to illustrate my point) FALSE

There is not going to be another Eldar one in 2013. TRUE

White Scars is one of the supplement codexes, and it is also complete (borderline printed) so logic dictates it'll be released a few weeks after the SM codex, but I don't have a street date for you. FALSE

Space marines will be getting 2 supplement codexes though by the end of 2013, so again... chances are white scars will be one of them. FALSE

For the Blood Angels and Space Wolves players, fear not you will be getting full codex support and not just supplements. Read between those lines. TRUE

the Space Marine special character changes to Combat Tactics still exist, but are also now available for purchase as an upgrade to a generic HQ allowing you to play Ravenguard without Shrike, or Salamanders without Vulkan. PARTIALLY TRUE

The special characters usually also include some other more specific army-wide changes included in the replacement of Combat Tactics to make them still desirable, as they represent a specific company, within a different chapter, etc. TRUE

Space marines will be getting 2 supplement codexes though by the end of 2013 DUPLICATE

Lastly, Ultramarines are not the focus of the Space Marine book any more. Instead the pages describe the book representing any of the second founding chapters, and many of the founding as well who converted to following the Codex Astartes. Outside of the over-abundance of Ultramarine special characters it's not "their book" anymore, which means it leaves things open for them getting a dedicated supplement as well. TRUE

Instead it allows corresponding aspects to be taken as compulsory troops. FALSE

Ergo, the Path of the Striking Scorpions would allow you to take up to two striking scorpions as troops. CONDITIONAL

If you also took the path of Swooping Hawks you could take up to two Swooping Hawks as troops or one and one. CONDITIONAL

If tau are the long range shooting army, eldar are a mix with potential units in short, mid and long range TOO VAGUE

Long range comes almost exclusively from heavy support, however so you need to create a mix it seems. TRUE

To answer some questions for your readers:
*The suit starts with rail cannons and can upgrade them to the Ion Weapon. FALSE

*The profiles you have listed are wrong, but it does indeed have blast and shot options. (from yesterday) TRUE

*It does divert power from it's reactor to different systems at the start of each Tau turn, lasting until the next turn and starts with one system active. TRUE

*One includes the gun, which is how you change it from shots to a blast. TRUE

*For those of you wondering; yes the blast is better than the multi-shots. TRUE

*It isn't like submunitions, or dispersed firing. Think of it more like megaman's buster. It gets powers up and fires a big shot instead of rapidly firing smaller shots (granted it's from a big gun). TRUE

Tyranid Rumors - March 2013
via a strong anonymous source
Some more specifics on tyranid playtest.

Carnifexes are in the elite and heavy support sections (but have different options) FALSE

While broods are the same base cost as the current dex, additional gaunts are dirt cheap. So if you want to horde it up, you can. FALSE

Rippers are cheaper. FALSE

Ability to build around "free" units coming in from reserve throughout the game (from different sources, but it's the same special rule), but they do not score. FALSE

Can go the other route and bugzilla it up and have all (including scoring) monstrous creatures. FALSE

The goal is to go mass or massive or anything in between. TOO VAGUE

The big text on the design board (figuratively speaking) is "Every Unit Viable. Every unit desirable." TOO VAGUE

And on the topic of evolutions - these are just upgrades and options that can make a bug very finite in it's role, but awesome at it. Not mid game changes. Only one special creature can do that. FALSE

Tyranid Rumors - March 2013
FoC manipulation and "new" deployment options are based on the various stages and methods of a Tyranid invasion. FALSE

- A lot of flexibility in the form of army composition. As opposed to the very mutable stats of units and weapons of the old codex, which caused a lot of headaches for opponents. FALSE
- Hive Tyrants are the main source of FOC manipulation. The idea is that they can specialize the scoring elements of the army.... but you have to pay for it. FALSE
- Reserve manipulation is a very strong theme in the codex. These options are more numerous and reliable than in the current codex. And that's because. FALSE
- Mycetic Spores have expanded rules for ease of use. This includes MC broods. FALSE
- Trygon tunnels are also greatly expanded. Raveners have additional synergy with the tunnels. Even Monstrous Creatures can use them but with a penalty. FALSE
- More outflanking options. Various ideas are being thrown around on the topic of protecting Genestealers and especially Lictors from being shot to pieces when they appear. FALSE

And the most important rule that is being tested...
Synapse offering protection from Instant Death in a brand new way. Right now this is being tested only on creatures that have the Synapse rule (not within the aura): Wounds that trigger ID can instead be rolled to either cause 1 Wound, 2 Wounds, or ID. FALSE

Eldar Rumors - March 2013
- Autarchs take Paths. These represent completed paths they have walked and are tied to the various aspects. By taking a path you make the respective aspect warrior a troop choice (the exception are reapers who just become scoring) DUPLICATE
- Overall point cost reduction (guardians see it the most, aspect warriors see it the least, but are instead a fair margin better with only a minor cost decrease for two of the schools). DUPLICATE
- new special rule that influence how howling banshees interact in combat. It's current iteration really makes them feel like glass cannons that are amazing at what they're designed to do. DUPLICATE

- The best you can get is Mark of Tzeench to upgrade your 5+ invulnerable from Terminator armour to a 4+. TRUE

Dark Eldar Rumors - Sept 2014
via Father Gabe on Faeit 212****
Yep. Just got back from meetings and lots of information blew up in my face. Feel like an ass lol.

So here is what I posted on my earlier posting concerning 9th ed.

1) I can confirm that in the system there is a book called Artifex: Dark Eldar $49.50....additionally there are 2 other books called Artifex: Tyranids and Artifex: Space Wolves both at $49.50. FALSE
2) Still in system is a box of Incubi with a different product code under $30.00 (want to say $29.50), DE VR Bomber is not under that heading anymore, whether that means it was scrapped or it is under a new code I do not know. FALSE
3) Alien Invasion in WD is true. TOO VAGUE
4) GW corporate email mentioned poster coming this week, not today...that was my bad. Additionally, next week an in store activity centering around painting in conjunction with the WD is encouraged...something concerning the Crux of the matter. Crux as in terminator Crux? TOO VAGUE

Regarding my horrible flub on Fantasy:
1) 23+ NA stores have been zeroed out for Island of Blood Restock. that could mean Fantasy is around the corner or those stores are closing...yikes! TOO VAGUE
2) New Planogram is inbound, which means fantasy and/or 40k shelving is going to get a face lift TOO VAGUE
3) There is an issue with back orders of both Bretonnian and Empire Knights, as one has been sold down and will not restock. I couldnt get more info...yet. TOO VAGUE

9th Edition Fantasy Rumors - Sept 2014
Latest 9th Edition Rumors by Father Gabe 9-3-2014

2) Some GW stores are finding Island of Blood sets are being zeroed out of their system for restock. Similar when Dark Vengeance happened to Assault on Black Reach.
3) This part is speculation: Bretonnians are going to be playing a big part in the Nagash saga in the beginning, it is believed the following is going to happen: FALSE

a) Pre-Order for 9th Edition will be Sept 13th (with special editions - standard new edition merchandising) FALSE
b) October will receive the new box edition (if standard releases from past is an indicator) which may contain Bretonnians and Undead. FALSE
c) Bretonnians will have a new Army book, model release following that, possibly into November before the Christmas packs roll in. FALSE
d) intermingled among these releases will be probably some filler models (repackaged Crom/Valten/etc.), army bundles, etc. FALSE

4) Not of speculation, though it must be considered rumor, I (and a few chosen) have personally seen new artwork by John Blanche for Bretonnians. Does this mean it will be in the new book? No idea, but sometimes his stuff is used for the sculptors to pull concept to model.

Or we could be really blindsided by everything and it be 25 new paints (not very likely), Dark Eldar (possible) or something ridiculous like a mass Hobbit release. GW likes to have a strong second quarter launch that will help carry through 3rd quarter (end of February).

Dark Eldar Rumors - June 2014
via Father Gabe
Looked at update on next months releases. Dark Eldar are likely coming. FALSE
Codex, TRUE
limited edition codex, TRUE
supplement, TRUE
dataslates. TOO VAGUE
Voidraven bomber @ $81.00 PARTIALLY TRUE
and new Incubi @ 29.75 which likely means plastic incubi. FALSE

Supply system updated, whether that means next month or not, Im not sure. It would make sense, since Orks are bleeding over into July release. To help support that info, no changes in supply system for Bretonians.


Knight Rumors - Feb 2014
via Father Gabe on Faeit 212
I have had a chance to skim through my advanced copy of Codex: Imperial Knight. Here are the highlights:
1) For non-Imperial Knight armies...you can get up to 3 as a separate detachment. This is a separate detachment from allies and lord of war...which is the new template I am guessing we will see in future codexes...sorry everyone Escalation is standard. Unless of course I looked at that box wrong... TRUE

2) Datasheets. There is a section in the codex, after organization chart, that covers Datasheets. None are mentioned but looks like these will be popping up in books...sorry everyone that don't consider them official, etc... TRUE


3) Ally Matrix: TRUE
Battle Brothers: Everyone Else
Allies of Convenience: Eldar,Grey Knights
Desperate Allies: Tau, Dark Eldar
Apocalypse: Orks, Necrons, Chaos Demons, Chaos Space Marines, Tyranids

4) Primary Detachment: 3 - 6 Imperial Knights. 1 is the designated Warlord (roll on Imperial Knight Warlord Trait table...yep Warlord Traits).
Additionally: Your remaining Imperial Knights in the Primary formation can roll on the Knight Apparent/Knight Seneschal chart. 1 - Knight is -1 WS/BS, Ion Shield is 5+ now. 2-5 Your an Imperial Knight. 6 - Knight is +1 WS/BS, Ion Shield is 3+ now. TRUE

5) Concerning Warlord Traits: They range up and down from being useful to 'meh'. Examples: +1" to Run/Charge range. +1 to Building Damage Chart. My favorite: Warlord gains It Will Not Die! TRUE

6) Let me stop all the questions now ladies and gentleman. Cannot show pictures. There are no other unit entries for Adeptus Mechanicum or Freeblades. They are not even listed on the ally chart. TRUE

7) The Companion Guide is amazingly beautiful for coffee table style books. Its a big book, lots of pretty pictures, etc. It does not contain rules but for collectors its a nice buy. Average guy might not buy it but dedicated collectors will want to order it. I recommend ordering it in a Games Workshop, ship to the store for safety and protection of the book. TRUE


Knight Rumors, GW General Rumors - Feb 2014
via Father Gabe on Faeit 212
Concerns Imperial Knights, New Web Page and Pre-Order changes.
1) Imperial Knights box is small, about the same size as a Rhino box. Contains 2x Decal Sheets (Lots and lots of decals for those that enjoy these), a 90mm x 120mm flying base. TRUE

2) Rules don't appear to be included in the box, for right now it looks like the White Dwarf is its only place. No additional info has been fully revealed concerning how its used, who uses it, etc. TRUE

3) New Web Page: new Direct Order computers are hitting the stores (in North America at least) that are being upgraded (for improvement reasons) and to allow better interface with the new Web Store. Software is being pumped through the Tills (registers) that will allow managers to perform detailed look ups or by use of the Fuzzy Product look up button.

4) Pre-Orders: Due to some complaints, concerns, etc by some UK/European customers and/or managers, the pre-order time is being changed effective tomorrow. Before in North America you could jump on pre-orders the day before at approximately 6pm, which was midnight or later in UK/Europe. So, now it will begin at 1pm Central time (US), not sure when that is in the UK/Europe but Im sure they can figure that out.

5) This last part is an oddity. At the recent HSC in North America (collaborating info I had from my UK source) is that GW feels (whether rightly or not...Im thinking not) that the whole reason we purchase miniatures is not because of what they can do in a game (rules wise) but we do so because of how they look. That surprised some of us. Combined that with the same reason the Codex/Army book comes out later, that might indicate a disconnect between corporate and its customer base. We have decided to dig on this issue, conduct surveys across the US GW/Independent stores to get an actual consensus. What we will do with that info? No idea yet. The concern is, does GW really feel that way, is it accurate or is it more of a "training" issue towards managers and such.

If it is a training issue, its designed to ensure that employees sell the models based more on the aesthetics then the benefits to the customer. Which is not good in training, where it was concerned that you do both, especially explaining how "Awesome miniature (X) can do all this stuff and it makes a great center piece..." for example.

Knight Rumors Details - Feb 2014
via Father Gabe on Faeit 212
1) The models in the White Dwarf are resin versions of the Imperial Knights. The actual plastic versions are a bit more streamed lined and will look slightly different. Kit contains (3) different heads. TRUE

2) The transfer sheet has approximately 250(+) decals. They contain decals for the following: Various Knight Households, Adeptus Mechanicus and Freelance versions. Before anyone asks, no I don't know if this means there are rules for these (3) factions or if it will be included in a book, etc. I should know more very soon. TRUE

3) Not a lot of info on Codex: Legion of the Damned beyond awesome artwork. The information that was provided was similar to the White Dwarf leak, mentioning they can be used as allies. Whether or not it can be used as a normal army. TRUE

Expansion Rumors - Escalation / Stronghold - Dec 2013
via Father Gabe from the Faeit 212 inbox.
I wanted to pass on information concerning Escalation and Stronghold Assault. I had the opportunity to have these two books in my hands today. I wanted to pass on the following information:

- For Standard (what some refer to as "regular" Warhammer 40,000 TRUE
- Not Expansion (like Planetstrike, Cities of Death, etc) TRUE
- Lord of War choice is optional (like Fortifications, Allies) TRUE
- Rules governing Lord of War: If you use a Lord of War your opponent receives a +1 bonus to Seize the Initiative and for every 3 Hull Points or Wounds you cause on a Lord of War choice you gain +1 (like Slay the Warlord, First Blood, etc).TRUE
- I won't go into details concerning the data sheets but don't expect Reavers, Mantas or Hierophants. TRUE
- Rules governing Str D weapons, AV 15 and all other Apocalypse based rules remain the same, but now crossover to Standard ("regular" Warhammer 40,000. TRUE

So it is Standard. Yep Tournaments can ban them, but these are for "regular" games. These rules are now apart of the landscape. Whether they are chosen for tournaments or not, that's not my call. I would only hope that they are tried out to see the difference before being condemned but I cannot help uninformed bias. TRUE

Locally we are going to play the heck out of it to see if they should or should not be included in Tournaments (or as it is being suggested every other tournament allow FW, Escalation, Stronghold Assault).

Expansion Rumors - Stronghold and Escalation - Dec 2013
via Father Gabe from the Faeit 212 inbox.
Concerning Stronghold Assault:
- Updated Fortifications TRUE
- Wall of Martyr (and subsequent new releases for fortifications are included. TRUE
- Combination Fortifications are expensive, the most expensive combination is 1305pts base. TRUE
- There are upgrade tables you can purchase for your fortifications. TRUE
- There is a separate section from the rest of the book. This section contains optional building rules to use with these fortifications. This separate rule is an optional way to use buildings and both opponents need to agree to their usage. I want to stress though that this optional rule set is a separate way to use buildings in general, and does not affect Fortifications in the book unless you agree. So if you want to use the Fortifications in the book, you don't need permission. If you want to use the optional rules, you do. TRUE
- Fortifications: Defense Line, Defense Emplacement, Firestorm Redoubt, Imperial Bunker, Vengeance Battery and Aquila Strongpoint are in the book. Vengeance/Firestorm already have rules that come in the box but are not in one place. Also BRB fortifications included. TRUE
- There are 3-4 Fortifications that have an Inquisitorial stamp over the picture but full rules. TRUE
- The combo Fortifications work as follows: Point cost equal to number of fortifications purchased. Most have a variety of 1-3 of this and that and a few 0 -2 options. TRUE

Concerning Escalation:
- Read the book again and it remains the same as I reported the other day. This book is adding a new force organization slot: Lord of War, to standard games of Warhammer 40,000. I read one additional rule. TRUE
- If your (I think also if both of you) opponent uses a Lord of War choice, besides the other benefits you get (if you don't have a Lord of War) there is a separate Escalation Warlord Trait table for you to use. I didn't have time to skim the entries, as I was focusing on confirmation on use, benefits, etc. TRUE
- Armies can only use their armies Lord of War choice and it is for the Primary detachment. TRUE

PENDING Horus Heresy Rumors - June 2016
legio Custodes

they have ALL THE BLING TRUE

the custodes are part of the ‘talons of the emperor’ army list which will include the sisters of silence and other non-astartes or mechanicum agents that the emperor sends to prospero, this list is purely themed to what was at prospero, but will be more than usable in regular gaming. each of the factions in the list will ‘probably’ be span off into seperate full size lists over the rest of the books.

the custodes element will be fully sized enough to be able to play a regular game without being restrictive. this will include vehicles (can’t wait for the ‘gift of the emperor’).

valdor is coming as their named character and is being considered alongside the primarchs in importence, (so probably being held for simon egan to do)

expect to see the full selection of units seen in the artwork. jetbikes, terminators, dreads and breachers alongside the basic spear guys.

via grissom2006 on Warseer
I'll expand slightly on the thinking behind why the pricing is likely to be in the realms of what i keep on hearing. The current think is that GW is looking at three gaming systems AOS being the first stage entry level gaming quick to pick up and play and complete with free rules. 40K more complex game to play and greater cost due to codices add ons etc.. Horus Hersey being the top end of the gaming spectrum and aimed at veterans/experienced gamers supposedly complete with even more complex rules.

Ohh and just to add into the mix there may not be just one set release but TWO!!FALSE

Not going to say the amount as it would be all to easily sourced back to my source. As for those after a release date start thinking about the end of October (expected preorders) start of November time (actual release). FALSE

…I can see how one can think Marine on Marine will be simpler. But the formations the weapons the specialist rules that each chapter had could be become a lot more engaging and much bigger than that of the chapter tactics we currently have. We are talking about an era in which the Primarchs were in command not a set of chapter masters that we currently have. A marine is a remarkable creation but that could never achieve what the Primarchs could. There are units that operated weapons and other things all lost with the Hersey. The game is set while all that stuff is very much still there for use and hasn’t become the stuff of legends and myths. So there is plenty of scope for it to be more complex even if the basic starting block isn’t that gets supplied in the box which is meant to be PACKED to the GILLS.”

Harry, Arthurius11 and Hastings have posted several hints that this game called Age of Sigmar is going to be a smaller affair than the mass-battle game WFB used to be in 8th. The rumor tracker has their posts. DUPLICATE

It's basically more of a skirmish (low model count) game. The box contains a small rulebook with less pages than usual (at least that's what I understood reading Harry's latest posts regarding the rulebook) and two forces. TRUE

It is rumored to be 'human warriors' (a Sigmarite Knightly Order?) vs Chaos Warriors and Daemons of Khorne. Rules for the units are included in the box. And some scenarios. Calling it an introductory set (for new players but also to the new setting for us veterans) seems to be a fitting description of it. TRUE

The last posts from Hastings on WS mentioned new building kits to be released in the near future. The removal of several WFB buildings like the fortress seems to back this up. And Hastings can be trusted anyway. TRUE

The tracker has lots of good WFB rumors collected - if you focus mostly on these three.

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - May 2015
I think I said it depends on your definition of squatted.
If by squatted you mean can you still use your existing models to play a game … then no, armies are not getting squatted. TRUE
If by squatted you mean that they will not make any more models for that range …. as happened with the Squats in 40K …then armies are getting squatted. TRUE

….and I knew about these pictures when I included Lizardmen in the armies I thought were going to go.

Arthurius first posted about these pictures (Months ago) … and I think hastings confirmed it.
They are as described …. seeing these pictures does not give me anymore hope that my lovely Lizardmen army will see any more support in the future …. what I see is a studio army painted up for the … “look fellas you can still use your old models in the new edition” photograph. … and the “Hey fellas, it does not matter what bases your minis are on … you can use your old square based minis right along side any new mins you paint that come with round bases … ” – article in White Dwarf.

I suspect we will be seeing more and more of the existing stuff painted up on a mixture of bases.



I can tell you there are several kits and concepts for existing armies that have not yet been released.



There may be one last roll of the die for a couple of armies is all I was suggesting. There is obviously a boat load of stuff coming for the new factions.

Something i still can’t get my head around is all the hand ringing going on about Lizardmen … like they are a special case. They are no more, no less shafted than anyone else. It is far, far easier to count the one or two armies NOT royally stuffed by this than the ones that are … just saying.

You are most welcome.
I have posted about this. It is not a ‘normal’ Fantasy box set. It is more like the recent 40K Box sets. The rules “book” is tiny… barely a booklet even a pamphlet is being over generous … more of a leaflet … well I say leaflet, it’s closer to a ‘post it note’. There is not enough paper in this to wipe your own @rse … never mind space for enough rules to call it a skirmish game. If Fischer Price made wargames this would be Fischer Price my first wargame. It’s good but it’s not quite Carling. TRUE

(I may be overstating just how small the rulebook is for comedy effect. )

Release Schedule Rumors - Feb 2015
I never mentioned May
I never mentioned “Nerd rage”
I was only talking about the new space marines.
I said it was going to cause a “**** storm” ….
I simply meant it was ‘big news’ and it was going to cause a lot of … ‘excitement’ on the 40K boards.
I did not intend to cause any panic.

It would seem duffybear heard a rumour about new space marines. He naturally assumed these were what came next …. mark 9
However it did not occur to him that what his rumour was about was what came before …..

I think these rumours ARE part of the same thing.

I think Duffy’s rumours are about the new space marines for THIS …. for 30K
So that would make it not mark 9 but something like Mark 3 / Mark 4 ? armour. (Or whatever armour it was 30K …someone will have to help me out with that) TRUE

The armour is a simpler, earlier version of the power armour we all know and love.
It looks a bit like something Tony Stark might have knocked up in the desert.

My latest information has 9th for summer. May has something else coming.

Finally throws gasoline on the fire:

Chaos Rumors / End Times Rumors - Jan 2015
(Bloodthirster)
Except this one was designed and sculpted by Jes Goodwin. TRUE

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - Jan 2015
My final thought before I go paint something .... it is everybody's assumption that the rumoured 'six' will ALL be familiar.
that most stuff will be saved and crammed into one 'faction' or another.

The only two I am certain of is Humanity and Chaos. TRUE
You have to retain humanity to have some connection with the game. (But I don't think these will be familiar as the either Bretonnians or Empire 500 years on).
Chaos is as GW as .... square bases for fantasy Also ... they look set to win! TRUE

After that I wouldn't bet on anything.
I think Skaven stand the best shout. Rats seem to do well after a bit of death and destruction and they are also a GW creation. BUT they were introduced as Chaos Ratmen .... so they might get rolled into Chaos? TRUE
I think some sort of Undead must be in there ... it's not like they will be short of dead bodies after the dust settles on the End Times. Will they be familiar as either VC or TK? Can't see why they would. TRUE
Everything else (If for no other reason that it is too generic and un protected) seems to be set to be knocked back into the stone age or into the history books. High Elves sink? Dwarves disappear under the mountains? Elves return to tree hugging in the deep woods. Lizardmen leave the planet. Who's going to left who can put up a fight? ... and we still have slots to fill. FALSE

I wouldn't bet against Fishmen Ichthyosapiens ... no one is fighting in the oceans FALSE
... or Insect men ... insects survive everything ...or some sort of Sky living birdmen/angels type thing as no one is fighting in the air especially either.

There was rumour about a new race for Warhammer ages ago.

I don't remember the details but their were two parts to it. 1) they needed to find the Fantasy equivalent of SM TRUE
and 2) They had always been here, part of the warhammer world just not visible. FALSE

So a race that lived underground and stayed out of everyones way, (Bit like the Skaven ... assumed not to exist by most normal folk) under the sea or in the sky and had stayed out of everyones way?

Don't know if there was anything in it, can't even remember where I heard it ... but I honestly would NOT be surprised to see a new (protectable) race. (or two) ... Everything else is up in the air ... why not the warhammer races?!

Just to mess up everyones nice easy six factions.

Big Red: So first up, Harry called the End Times and Glottkin by name over 6 months out. So when he says something, you should take it as much more serious than garden variety rumors.

This insinuation of new boxed sets and unified "Human" factions all feeds back into Harry's earlier speculation on GW utterly shattering the game with the End Times series, to produce a very different environment and game on the other side of the series. TRUE

After months of absence, the BEST rumormonger out there returns to talk about the End Times of Warhammer Fantasy:

Harry's BACK from the wilderness!



9th Edition Fantasy Rumors - Sept 2014
You may remember last year I was being very vague about some 'radical changes' in a thread about 9th edition.

Back at the start of the year, in one of my first posts of the new year I said this:

I don't think they are trying to destroy it.
I suspect they will be trying their hardest to breath new life into it.
We are not seeing the "End times" for Warhammer just yet. TRUE

Did you see what I did there?
The clues are always there fellas.

So I first heard about all this last autumn?
I was told 2014 would be "Year zero" for Warhammer.

Had no idea what that meant at first but if you Google your way to the wikipedia you get this:


The term Year Zero (Khmer: ?????????? chhnam saun), applied to the takeover of Cambodia in April 1975 by the Khmer Rouge, is an analogy to the Year One of the French Revolutionary Calendar. During the French Revolution, after the abolition of the French monarchy (September 20, 1792), the National Convention instituted a new calendar and declared the beginning of the Year I. The Khmer Rouge takeover of Phnom Penh was rapidly followed by a series of drastic revolutionary de-industrialization policies resulting in a death toll that vastly exceeded that of the French Reign of Terror.

The idea behind Year Zero is that all culture and traditions within a society must be completely destroyed or discarded and a new revolutionary culture must replace it, starting from scratch. All history of a nation or people before Year Zero is deemed largely irrelevant, as it will (as an ideal) be purged and replaced from the ground up.

It was made clear to me that this was what we were talking about for warhammer.
Everything that existed being completely destroyed (or discarded) and something new replacing it from scratch ... purged and replaced from the ground up.

I hinted in various posts that they would be getting rid of the existing timeline, the existing map, etc. (In an effort to soften the blow. )

I am going to get this a bit wrong because I honestly can't remember where I heard it but to confirm the three book rumour .... I did hear the "End times" were going to be spread over three books. TRUE

Nagash was the first,TRUE followed by Malekith FALSE followed by GlotkinTRUE


- Stopping development of WHFB altogether .... I heard it was discussed clearly they decided to try something else.
- Squatting several key armies .... I heard it was discussed and what survives may not be recognisable in 9th
- Dropping ranked units for skirmishing round based individuals .... I heard it was discussed.

And other doomsday scenarios ...

Urrrm, the whole thing is, in fact, a Doomsday scenario
What I am expecting is most of the End times releases in the next six months .... I bit of a breather and 9th edition six months after that ... July/August 2015

Whatever 9th is it will be set in the grimmest, darkest post apocalyptic Warhammer fantasy world yet.

I can 100% confirm that GW has newer SoB infantry sculpts. What I can't comment on is if GW has plans to release those sculpts. I use the word 'newer' because I consider them to be fairly old now.

If GW is going to start releasing small forces (FW AdMech has been selling well?), it would be a good time to drop some new SoBs. Even if plastic SoBs weren't cheaper, they can provide a lot of bits on a sprue. Celestians, Dominions, Retributors, and normal sisters in one box. Seraphim in another... HQ box/clamshell that fits well with the new plastics... And 'pure' SoB are fine, maybe a Repressor if they feel like pushing the boat out.

"Here are some rumours. The Black Crusade will reach Terra, and the Legio Custodes and Sisters of Silence will be there in it's defence.FALSE

The Horus Heresy Legion Forge World Space Marine Icon bearer will be available at every Warhammer and Games Workshop starting on October 22.

Games Workshop taking over a lot of the HH, and plastic primarchs. By the end(ish) of 2016, the Black Crusade will make it to Terra. As the forces of chaos arrive, the Legio Custodes is forced out to defend the Imperial Palace. And, surprise: the Silent Sisters have been there the whole time. Also probably means no more Sisters of Battle, although there may be one or two surprise one-off models. "

via helterskelter on Bolter and Chainsword
http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/328299-8th-ed-rumour-extra-salt-required/

8th Edition starter is Astartes vs Chaos Marines.
Rulebook will be similar to Age of Sigmar’s General’s Handbook.
Campaign Books similar to the Realmgate Wars series.
Point costs and rules for Army construction will be in the “General’s Handbook” and future codex-like Books
Release date for 8th Edition is June
The new Edition will be set after Abaddons’s 13th Black Crusade
-Initial focus on factions will be on Imperium vs. Chaos
-There are brewing disagreement between the returning Primarchs
-Many are shocked and disagree the 40th Millennia Imperium’s religion and injustice.

More rumours about the 8th edition, not how the rules look but the background

Look for the plotline of 8th Edition to wind it’s way to Mars, seat of the Adeptus Mechanicus.
Upon it’s surface the Emperor has laid a grand plan millennia in the making.
Which only his returned sons can complete.
An ultimate tool to cast down the Ruinous Powers.

Another hint that the Primarchs are back

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - Feb 2015
via Ikitlagriffe on Warseer
I summarized here everything I lately collected, and you seem to ignore or misinterpret. I am not paid by anyone to deceive you. I’m the most confident about aesthetic and visual questions, and about skaven stuff. Friendly.

Anyone who wants to know what there is in V9 has to imagine that this is the V8 ; it will be 90% right. FALSE

Rule changes have been made to stabilize and streamline some points, particularly at the formation units and their interaction with the characters, from what I was told. FALSE

About the armies that follow (“factions” J ) : they won’t be "bundling" of existing armies, but almost all new prospects. These are all new units with an aesthetic different from what we knew and new historic lines, new characters, we could almost consider some of them as new “races”. Nevertheless, each new release will be integrated into one or more pre-existent conventional armies. Some new units, for example, will just belong to “Forces of Order” or “Forces of Destruction”. No stress. You can keep your old collection (all your collection), and enjoy with it. PARTIALLY TRUE

V9 will not be just one book, but a box with other things such as a volume focused on two types of battles : clashes "lord of battles "in standard format creating links between games, and smaller battles with “pre-organised” armies (that's what you took for a skirmish game I think). PARTIALLY TRUE

About this “skirmish” game: I’m not completely sure about that : this has taken many different forms over the settings but it seems to be one of the most tested aspects in recent years by GW teams. It is not intended to be the main way to play Battle. Currently, forces will be selected from a list of predefined choices, more restrained that the currents army books, without worrying percentage points, points themselves will not so important anymore: it will be destabilizing for the old players, but the number of miniatures contained in a unit or its point value could be no longer as important as before in this system. Players would have the choice to comply or not the points. A book will summarize the possible choices for all existing armies. It was thought just for fun, and almost all special rules of existing models could be ignored because of it. PARTIALLY TRUE

About round bases : there would be a misunderstanding at this level too. Some Warhammer miniatures will indeed now sold on round bases, but it’s the consequence of some simplified rules and not a transition to a new system, or 40k-like, or I don’t know what. No link with the new “skirmish game”. The elements attached to units will be on round base (as skaven regimental weapons or dark elves cauldron of blood for example, but also characters according to pictures I’ve seen), are no longer joined the unit but move next to, and may have a round or oval base. But if your old version is not on a round base, you can still play with, no problem. TRUE

About “waiting” armies : for the bretonnians, there is a book that will follow this year, but perhaps we can’t call this “army book” because it will be very different from what you had until then. It will be closer from the End Times books recently issued. There will be in it new units, which could join the Forces of Order, and very close from a Bretonnian army, but not only.
For the Skavens, the amount of new stuff approaching is just unprecedented (although I have no visibility on dates). It won’t be really “skavens” as we knew them, but a sort of evolution type very nice and inspired. No merger with Chaos for them (anyway, no merger for anyone!). About Beastmen, they don’t have directly the same processing, to the best of my knowledge, but no doubt they will benefit from a wealth of new opportunities for chaos. I had no evidence that it’s matter of squatting them, nor nobody else.

The quantity of new stuff for Battle will be just incredible, if all that is planed comes out. New releases will be essentially new entries, unique monsters, characters, and elite units of 2 to 5 figures. This will change progressively the overall appearance of the armies, with fewer miniatures (but larger). There will always be a place for large infantry units; however I don’t have a precise view of the new rules, that's why I can’t say if it will always be interesting to play big infantry units, or not.

First time posting rumors, but here are some things I want to add to the “meta” picture of rumors regarding upcoming releases. I would say this is a 5/10 on the reliability scale, so bring a salt shaker or 2, but leave the dump truck at home.

3 key points:

1. 8th edition coming out sometime between April-June 2017

2. 8th edition 40k will be “halfway” between current 40k and Age of Sigmar rules-wise

3. 8th edition Starter Set features Sisters of Battle fighting a yet-undeterminable xenos force (based on how the sprues looked)

Source:

Insider in the US retail scene who had been to the UK for training earlier this year. Source is confidential so I can’t elaborate more than that.

This past weekend I was in a different part of the US than where I live and spoke to someone involved in the GW retail scene1 . Long story short, the person–in confidence–mentioned that 8th Edition should be coming out “around the same time as the Stanley Cup2” and that it features sweeping changes that bring it about halfway to Age of Sigmar. He had been in the UK for training on various things and was officially given some information on this (part of the reason we had to dance around things like specific release dates). He comes to the game from AoS side, so he was very excited about the changes. He said they knew that 40k and AoS are completely different games and could never use the exact same ruleset, but the sheer numbers of new customers that AoS’s easier-to-digest ruleset is producing is enough to make it the goalpost for 40k’s re-worked rules. They want to get rid of the bloat and obtuse rules as much as any player and streamline things, while maintaing as much diversity and flavor as possible.



Near the end of our [LONG] conversation he hinted that the starter set for 8th Edition will feature Sisters of Battle. This came up unexpectedly as he was griping about how he was expected to assemble and paint to (GW-standards) the entire Starter Set in the 48hrs from when the boxes hit his premises to the official launch date….all while keeping it secret and continuing to turn a profit. I probed him about this and he said they were “robed female marines3 that I guess were popular before?” He was annoyed because he had never seen these models before and they were “smaller” so he was annoyed at not having more time to figure out the modelling aspect. I probed around asking if they were “more Prospero girls” and stuff like that to try to flesh out the details before finally asking straight up if they were called “Sororitas” to which he replied “nah, something Sisters, but not the Prospero ones.” So for that reason, putting the pieces together, I am speculating they are Sisters of Battle.



He could not name the force they were fighting in the Starter Set since again, they were models that did not look familiar to him. They were definitely “alien” looking with sharp lines and curves and things, but did not look like the Eldar stuff he had in his own collection. I as

B&C’s Ishagu says

The next Traitor Primarch is going to be Mortarion. Winged, same scale as Magnus.

Chaos are going to get a LOT of love this year

Going back to Mortarion, this rumour has been collaborated by another person.

I’m being told Mortarion is next and ahead of Angron who was another Daemon primarch rumoured to have a future release.

The sheer confidence this information was presented to me with makes me think we won’t be waiting a great deal of time for this, and I’m hoping that’s the case.

I don’t have word on dates unfortunately.

Ok, so I've had a 'conversation' and am going to share a few tidbits:

-From what I understood the book will actually feature most if not all Ad Mech units from Skitarii and Cult. TRUE
-There is a big AdMech formation that includes a Knight, one of the Bonuses is weapons lose "Gets Hot" This may well be the War Convocation from the old WD. FALSE
-Trazyn is indeed in the book, and he's an ally to Imperials though I couldn't confirm if this was just during Campaign Missions or through a formation. TRUE
-In the book there are missions that are very similar to those in AoS - another hint at the direction GW will undertake with 40k

Now the more interesting stuff:

-This Black Crusade will be a grand undertaking by GW and will see about 2 years worth of book and model releases.
-Abaddon is getting a new model, likely in the next book or the one after. He is the same size, roughly, as a 30k Primarch. Actually he's about the same height as Guilliman on his smaller game base.

-Plastic Warhound Titan - in the works. (wow!)
-Ad Mech full Codex, new units, a robot bigger than the Kastellans.

GW have just acquired a new plastic print facility, more advanced than the last.
...just sharing

From what I've been told it's now basically possible to re-create any Forgeworld kit in plastic, although initial costs are much higher in doing so.


Also there might be an additional HQ character in the next BaC style box, but I can't quite remember, my head was spinning lol

Campaign Rumors - May 2015
via Jarkko Airaksinen on Faeit 212
I heard about half a year ago that there will be DA vs. Daemonkin campaign set after SM release which includes also other Imperial factions (such as forces of Mars) in the later parts as well as a "new" faction like Lost and the Damned which uses SM figures with chaos upgrade kits and with different painting schemes. FALSE

Primary campaign boxed release will have new limited edition HQ for both forces and after the campaign DA will get their codex and then it is time for Daemons and CSM to be updated to 7th.

Daemons and CSM will be fall release with Fantasy in between those releases.
 Space Marine Rumors - May 2015
via Jarkko Airaksinen from the Faeit 212 comment section
This one will ruin a few rainforests worth of pulp (unless you people buy it in digital) since there will be a s**tload of detachments along with formations.

I've heard it will contain more than one core detachment to choose from and it decides the basis of your army and the main strategy. FALSE

One of these will feature a Guilliman's golden standard of key Tactical Doctrine in to which you add different strategic elements in form of Assault or Devastator Doctrine based elements along with specialized support formations to suit one's needs. PARTIALLY TRUE

Like this:
Adeptus Astartes Operative Detachment

1+ Tactical Detachment(s) with 2+ Troop Choices, 1 Elite, 0-1 Fast Attack (with restricted choices), 0-1 Heavy Support (also restricted) and 0-1 Fortification. FALSE

1 Command Detachment per Core Detachment

0-1 Lord Detachment per army

0-X Doctrine Detachment(s) per Tactical Detachment which include: FALSE
Devastator Doctrine
2-X Heavy Supports (restricted choices)
1-2 Scouts
0-1 Tactical Squad
0-1 Elite (restricted)
0-1 Fast Attack (restricted)

Assault Doctrine FALSE
0-1 HQ (restricted)
2-X Assault Squads/Vanguard Veterans/Assault Centurions
0-1 Fast Attack (restricted)

Mechanical Detachment (Vehicles only except for MotF and/or Techmarines) FALSE
0-1 HQ (Command Rhino + Land Raider XXX)
0-1 MotF
0-3 Techmarines
1-3 Vehicles (non walkers and as squadrons of 1-3)

Aerial Detachment
Siege Detachment
Etc...

It will be a one heck of a release which will bring a lot of changes for "vanilla" Space Marines, which will add a lot of flavor for them allowing you to field a force which is even more specialized than those non-Girlyman standard Space Marines who are considered to be worth of their own book... PARTIALLY TRUE

Four Codices worth of stuff with a price tag of two. Two Infantry boxes, two clampack HQs, upgraded vehicle kit along with Vehicle Formation Bundle and a "starter" Bundle. PARTIALLY TRUE

Wood Elf Rumors - Harry's Fantasy Recap
There are rumours of darker and more dangerous Wood Elves based on the content of the currently unreleased Black Library Orion novel. Set for release in September? ?I'm assuming that the author (Darius Hinks) spoke with the design studio prior to writing the book about the direction they wanted to take them. The guy on the Black Library stand says Darius has spent ages studying Paganism and other similar religions to get ideas, and he has really played up the darker, more capricious nature of the wood elves. One example he gave was elves cutting out the hearts of other elves to replace them with briar hearts" FALSE
