Well if you havent heard os seen the latest on warseer forums by now, here is a basic rundown of whats going on:

  • Forgeworld had a WIP of the forthcoming Greater Daemon of Nurgle (think the illustration from the old 'Slaves to the Darkness' book
  • Imperial Armour 5 will be over two tomes. vol 1 includes Death Corps of Kriegs vs Chaos Renegades. Spoke to Tony Cotterill at length about this the book will be centred around trench warfare and the Chaos Renegade force will be more aligned as 'Traitor Guard' than a LaTD type army. FW are working on 'renegade' conversion for IG models for this range, Conversions ofr Leman Russ, Chimera's etc.. possible some new designs also. Vol 2 will be siege warfare with siege engines both from Chaos and the Adeptus Mechanicus. FW WILL be doing an AM range of minis.
  • Death Korps of Krieg Grenadiers are being worked on and a rather funky 2 man Flamer teams as well.

  • Death Jester model

  • Harlequins are split at the waist, offering more modelling opportunities.
  • The rumour window is supposedly shortened to three months now
  • Not alot of new DA rumours, other than they are confirmed early 2007.
  • Specialist games will have a vastly reduced role, but BFG will see some more limelight, yet again.
  • John Blanche's new 40mm scale femmemilitant models

All in all, a very poor showing for games day. Not much new to be told, as we all frequent internet forums and we already know what has been said there more or less. Seminars are now a thing of the past, so you know the rest...

This year seems to be a dud.

The news on Empire seems to be there will be one empire soldier body sprue with arms for spears, swords, halbreds, crossbows or handguns.

No one seems sure if it wiill be one box or 2 boxes with the same bodies but different arms.

There's a tiny picture.

Plastic Empire general is coming.


EDIT more from warseer

As people have been disappointed about the lack of Empire stuff I have some more I can share with you all about the state troops.....(didn't know where to put this as there were several different empire threads on the go so mods feel free to put it where you like!)

I now know that there WILL be two distinct Empire state troop box sets.
One for Halberdiers
One for Missile troops

Bad news:
(Sadly) they are fixed / one piece bodies
Both sets are adopting similar stances so don't look that different from each other.

Good news:
The Halberdiers/spearmen/swordsmen box set come with 10 different bodies. (Yes 10!)
All in similar poses but different stuff (armour iconography sculpted on to them and I think 7 or 8 different heads.
Spears and halberds are all pointing forward (bit like front rank spearmen) so more dynamic attacking as previously described. The swordsmen look especially good (I think) shields held forward sword arms raised jabbing from behind the shield.
The handgunners/crossbow men come with 6 (or 7) different bodies.
Some with left arm out ready to recieve missile weapon (or not)
some with no arms to build as loading / waiting / rear rank options
You can also do some nice varitions for example one combo allows you to have the hand gun over the shoulder in the right hand and have the shaking 'fist' on the outstretched left hand.

Edit: Oh and the Handgunners come with a powder monkey!

I am completely drooling over those Femme Militants. Oh my, I made a mess here. Malfred, clean up in aisle 667! Those figs are just in-fecking-credibly sweet, even better than the jaw droppingly awesome harlies. It is verry rare that a new GW miniature line piques my interest much less gets me excited enough to buy some, but the Femme Militants might do just that.

That sucks. That really sucks. How much more can you reduce them?

t-tarui: "The next IA6 deals with the escalation and brings in Chaos Marines, Daemon Engines, (Defiler conversion kits mentioned as a possibility), Titans and big stuff."

Been waiting for these new daemon engines for years now ... Chaos Militia in general should all be fantastic stuff too. Damnation!

Also: big fan of those Femme Militant sculpts; astoundingly close to the art, just wandering $$$ meself ...

One thing though, people at my FLGS seem to think Blood Angels are packed along with Dark Angels in the next marine 'dex. They're full of it, right? Cause I've been waiting for my lovely new BA 'dex and don't need no cloaky marines in there.

Thanks for the pics and news!

The daemon is fun (if that's your idea of fun > ).  I hope they do a Lord of Change next.  I have the Bloodthirster and it's awesome.

AM are forthcoming possibly with Imperial Armour 6. Imperial Armour 5 has the Death Korps and Chaos Militia, plus the obligatory Space Marines. IA6 has CSM, Daemon Engines, Titans and the AM. The Air Combat game Aeronautica Imperialis looks good.

Dark Angels are confirmed for early 2007 with the Master of the Ravenwing on a jetbike, generic librarians and two plastic accessory sprues.

The femme militants are 40mm and £20 a time and limited editions.

Apart from Forgeworld and the Harlequins very little else of any real interest from this year's GD UK. No teasers of forthcoming stuff from main GW except one tiny poster of Empire with "Coming Soon" across it.

I guess the Death Korps are going to be differently organized than the ones in the IG: they can't take grenadiers, and I haven't seen a melta gun from them yet.
This will hopefully mean that they'll be making Kreig Ogryns to put in the Gorgon.

Since new release to resell on Ebay are limited and are already sold when people get to buy them after waiting in line it looks like some people found a trick to get there earlier. You just have to participate to Golden deamon and enter earlier than people waiting in line. Maybe that's why I saw horrible picture and some entry like the base with foorprint that was supposed to be a stealthsuit.
