Not to spoil the fun of discussion, but how does anyone actually believe we'd get credible price rumors before GW so much as teases new Horus Heresy plastics?

Nope.

And if rumour comes from nafka "we like to invent rumours" it's even less credible.

As is we don't know what price SCE dragons will be and they are out in next month...

Can't vouch for the pricing part but the breakdown of the boxes and the contents has been supported by reliable rumour people elsewhere, so "we like to invent rumours" might well be correct on a chunk of it at least.

Seems unlikely that some dude came across my post and started pumping out fairly detailed fake rumors based on it within what, a couple hours?

I can 100% see the box contents being legit, i hope theyre wrong with regards to the character and dreadnaught models being the old ones though. Id be appalled if the price point were legit and in pounds£

On the BaC Board, they're guessing if the source is a german translator...

If the source is a german translator, that really sucks for them because they're going to get hit really hard by GW for violating NDA.

Let leakers stay anonymous, you get nothing from exposing their identity other than a loss of a source, because they aren't going to be able to provide you more info in the future once GW identifies the person and fires them and/or fines/sues them into oblivion.

The downside of everyone demanding iron clad sources for everything all the time sadly. Gone are the days we just have fun debates on rumours, it's either near fact or nothing.

Because gone are the days when people wouldn't actively (and in some cases, maliciously) invent things whole-cloth to try to get clicks to their sites or "for the lulz".

Or for poorly done April Fool's jokes.

35th anniversary of the RTB-01 coinciding with this box's release doesn't sound all that impossible to me tbh. But that means Q4/22... It's going to be a long year :(

It's completely believable that they pick 35 for a beakie release, but it's also entirely possible they're working with the year rather than the specific anniversary. It's just marketing, they'll do what they think will make a successful event out of it.

True, and they could also release the Marines as a separate box on the official anniversary.

GW are currently advertising for a Rules Editor:

Would you consider yourself an expert in any of the Specialist Design Studio’s games: The Horus Heresy, Adeptus Titanicus, Blood Bowl, Middle-earthTM, Aeronautica Imperialis and Necromunda?


So they're still saying HH is a Specialist Game.

Did they not previously have a Sons of Horus praetor in terminator armor? Or is this one just a newer blingier supersized version?

I'm almost afraid that the big plastic box we will see would be a christmas bundle at this point. Super limited availability. With the main release coming next year.

I wonder, does this mean the first Praetor was revealed way ahead of time by accident and not just a week or so?

Because usually they come in pairs

Really...you expect new edition to be christmas discount box? Seriously? Those are generally old kits. Even if the box is without rulebooks(christmas bundles don't come with rulebooks...) it would not be all new models.

It was NEVER EVER going to be christmas bundle. Nope. Not. GW needs entire new leadership and new policy for that to even happen.
