Isn't that what the adepticon panel said? I haven't been stalking the posts from that, but I heard May of next year.

I see it as a mix of what GW has said and good guesses but not actual insider information.

Shadow War shipped with Templates and weapons/rules that mention template weapons. They're probably not gone unless they only exist for boxed games... so unlikely haha.

Shadow War is Necromunda rules not 40k much less 8th edition.

You know where they took this rumor from? It comes from Warseer, the 'New marines'-rumor thread page 3 (and more rumors on the same page and pg 4 from the same source). Worth tracking both

Williamsond

http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?422009-New-Marines&p=7657651&viewfull=1#post7657651


Edit: These are all his posts from pg3 and pg4 compiled

Williamsond - Warseer

my source (who was spot on about the plastic primarchs and fantasy with round bases), seems to be pretty sure both the plastic thunderhawk and the new marines faction rumours are true (along with a load of stuff about 8th) and we will see them this year. The only thing he's gotten wrong in the past was when the titanicus game would be released he had said it was due this spring but looks like its going to be later this year/ early next year now.

all said and done if we don't see a plastic thunderhawk around the same time as the next edition (summer) I would be very surprised.

[...]

he pretty much confirmed a lot of what's going around the rumour mill:

1, Codexs are done and will be replaced on launch day with war-scroll style release much in the vain that AoS was.
2, Gone are templates, weapons will instead do random numbers of wounds much like flamer do now in overwatch.
3, Vehicle armour values are gone, vehicles will instead get multiple wounds (expect even the most basic tank to have a lot of wounds double figures) heavier weapons will however do multiple wounds too.
4, Weapons will have a armour save modifier much like second edition rather than an ap value, so you have a save and this is reduced depending which weapon you're shot with, rather than getting full save until your ap value is beaten.
5, Early summer release date, I think he said June but it may have been July my memory isn't what it used to be .
6, Rules will be simplified but not to the extent of AoS like Aos there will be three ways to play open narrative and matched.
7, Charging from vehicles is back not just assault vehicles, expect to see rhinos full of assault marines as far as the eye can see...

Like I said a lot of this has been confirmed already to be true, so I expect all the other stuff will be true too. He was quite positive about the changes and others I have gained info from who are in the know "so to speak" say that the secret play testing they did with the wider community seems to have been time well spent. I know there's a lot of guys out there now who are sitting on NDAs who know a lot more but for obvious reasons are being very tight lipped.

[...]

if all the stuff I've been told is true this is going to be the edition of vehicle rush close combat, looks like we'll have to wait until 17 June to see

[...]

It's very strange to see all the big 40k sites are running with my rumour list today, even a lot of the other sites like bolter and chain sword etc are talking about it. However with the amount of hate and dismissive comments I've seen I'm glad I'm not being credited as the original source.

[...]

sorry all I've been told is that AV is gone and replaced with a profile and lots of wounds.

Just in response to a lot of rage I've seen in other places, To clarify I'm not saying army books won't return in some future shape but that the current batch of codex's will be no longer use-able and will be replaced with free stuff on launch day much like its been done in the past with older editions. Army books will return in good time but in more of the vain that current AoS books are released.

Sounds like you might have some incoming "falses". Sounds like FW is doing a new resin Thunderhawk.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

I did a search on thunderhawk in the file and didn't see any for that. People just kind of assumed the FW announcement was plastic, but I didn't see any rumors that hadn't been hit already.

In her blog Lady Atia is active again. She has said two things in the comments.

Given White Dwarf's out on the 16th next month, I'd imagine they're dropping the new edition the Saturday after with preorders on the 3rd and 10th.

Lady Atia "It's not the 20th. You will get something else cool on that date "

Then someone was speculating about possible AoS style sub-factions for all the 40k factions she had this to say on Tau.

Lady Atia "Let's say so much - you will be getting some new tau stuff that's not directly part of the t'au empire "

I'm not sure that's something for this thread, until it is confirmed as 'true' or 'false' though?

It is, we put stuff that is still pending in the main post and then rate it once we know.

Ah, fair enough, I guess.

But DAMN this must be a ridiculous amount of sifting, pruning, purging and....you know...work!

Kudos and thanks go to you - these unpaid jobs we've taken on - ha!

It is indeed. Although probably a bit less stressful than mod'ing.

good info. who's your source?


A GW staff member.

The free rules won't include any points or armywide special rules, just unit datasheets (and presumably power levels).

So you posted a release list? I'll have to rely on someone else helping me out with that. I don't remember whether that was prior to or not.

In other news, massive update to the first post. I think I got all the 8th rumors.
