From today's WarCom article:

However, one date that will pique the interest of many a hobbyist (or anyone looking to pick up a cracking present for a relative, friend, or significant other) is Battleforce Day.

Be sure to join us on Thursday the 18th of November, when we’ll be revealing all of this year’s Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar Battleforces in preparation for the holiday season. Not only do they save you money compared to picking up the constituent units separately, but each Battleforce will provide the perfect start – or significant reinforcements – to any collection.

Well the reveal will be - but traditionally they've always been sold in shops and to 3rd parties. Now it might be that the world transport situation means that some territories might get them later than intended.

Might be a shame if there's no specialist game one; but then again the only real game that supports that is AT. Necromunda doesn't really have enough in any one side to warrant a box and even if they did it would only be one force and feel a bit odd. Most of the other specialist games are much smaller in model ranges per force so, again, just don't really fit for a battlebox.

Nonsense! We need a Necromunda box with 5 factions in it!

Necromunda could have a Zone Mortalis discount box, like the one that was basically the terrain part of Dark Uprising and sold out immediately

I might be persuaded to splash out on either a 40K Knight set or a Household bundle for Titanicus.

Tyranids would be rather fetching too, so long as it has a Carnifex in there...

For at least Titanicus they have done it in the past; the Titan battlegroup and the Knight battleforce, were Christmas releases.

Hah, I was just thinking that. I bought the skink battleforce like 3 years ago and it's still sitting there.

...but I'm gonna see what's on offer this year before jumping to any conclusions

I probably still have 5 of them on the pile of shame too. Managed to resist last year somehow.

You just predicted a Black Guardians of Ulthwe battleforce and what's worse is they would justify it with fluff, even though it's literally nothing but trash.

Bold of you to assume it will contain a whole 5 diffrent units outside the HQ.

While we wait, wishlist?

I'd get GSC and AdMech if it had their newest wave of models, and anything Beasts of Chaos. That's probably it for me for the main games.

I would be sorely tempted if they did an AoS Slaanesh Mortals themed one. Perhaps like last year's Tzeentch, a Keeper with a bunch of mortal followers.

Hopefully the marines aren't mostly Phobos again. I wonder if Tau will have another deal for the third year in a row too, personally I hope not.

Fingers crossed for a Howling Banshee (2X) + Jain Zar + filler kit in advance of the Aspect Warrior relaunch next year.

Would also love a Ynari starter with the Triumvirate and whatever, but who knows...

Random thought, but maybe they'll take this opportunity to add a few "Armies of Renown" to factions that have none yet?

One each of Guardians, Dire Avengers, Vyper, and War Walker. Same plastic farseer HQ as the current start collecting.

How about a chonky boi marine set? Hvy Intercessors, aggressors, eradicators, inceptors and a gravis captain (throw in the obligatory redemptor too).

We'll probably get a Drukhari flotilla, tsons or grey knights (no combat patrols for them yet).

But it'll probably just be more Phobos gak...

Wishlist is either they are all really terrible so I don’t want any.
Or..
So good that it’s a crazy deal not to get.

Like Dominion was when it was half price on Wayland or wherever.
Not that I got it, but I probably should have..

Nothing in that description indicates they would be online only. Given that they have never been online only, its safe to assume they will continue to be available in stores.

In past years, I've noticed that the non 40k/AoS battleforces tend not to be announced at the same time. I.E. they usually show the 40k and AoS battleforces on the big preview day, and then 2 weeks later when they go up to preorder *surprise* heres an adeptus titanicus holiday bundle, 2 terrain bundles, and 4 paint and hobby supply bundles we didn't mention anywhere previously.
