Hi,

Here the summary by Harry (newest additions in yellow):
Harry wrote:Release Date: Unknown.
However there are rumours that a release of models is coming very soon. (Harry)

Author:
There are no rumours of a book at all. Just a wave of models.

Rules: NA
Army book update sheet/leaflet in next months White Dwarf with new rules and updates.

Models:
Plastic Plague Bearers. (Erazmus_M_Wattle, manickZe, Harry)
Finecast screamers ... not the old models. New sculpts. (Erazmus_M_Wattle)
Some BIG , gribbly monster type thing. (Not a mammoth. Not a Greater Daemon). Nurgle specific? (Harry)
Flying chariot. (Harry, Erazmus_M_Wattle)
Herald of Slaanesh on chariot been spotted in warehouses.(Silvertounge)
Soulgrinders in fantasy. Massive rectangle base. (Erazmuz_M_Wattle) This must be the big thing on a monster base I heard about. I wasn't expecting a soul grinder ... Nurgle speciific thing was (clearly)my incorrect assumption. (Harry)

This just in from Rixitotal who has read next months White Dwarf:

"So in next months white dwarf there is going to be a leaflet with updates for Codex daemons and daemons in fantasy.
Some changes to old units, flamers are now only S4 in fantasy and some units have had point changes. ect.
Also new units slannesh massive chariot (2D6 +1 impact hits) and other weird chariot thing in 1 kit. the other thing looks and acts kind of like a mobile meat lawnmower. This is in both games and acts like a chariot in 40K.
Soul grinders are coming to fantasy! has T7 6 wounds and a load of upgrades for its shooting. looks pretty mental.
The model (40K kit) in the white dwarf and leaflet was on the same base as the giant goblin spider.
New models for plague bearers (really really nice, some have fly heads)
Screamers (look similar but with lots of eyes),
Flamers (similar)
Nurgalings (looks like a pile of funny little germ monsters you might get in a dish washer advert).

More confirmation of this and some more details from my inbox:

Chariot kit has two builds. One has four daemonettes and a herald called an exalted with a big whip. The other build has the exalted on her own but the chariot is dragging spiked / bladed rollers behind it.

Soul grinders comes on the same base as the Arachnarok spider. Shooting attacks. One attack works like grape shot but can be upgraded. Another works like a stone thrower.

Blue Scribes gets a mini. More Dais than disc.

More confirmation posted by thebitzbarn:

Well it looks Like August new releases are all Daemons.

AUGUST 4th
Plaguebearers (Plastic) 29.00 USD (10 Man box)
Screamers (Plastic) 29.75 USD (3 figures)
Flamers (Plastic) 20.00 USD (3 Figures)
Seekers Chariot of Slaanesh (Plastic) 29.75 USD (1 Model)
Nurglings (Plastic) 25.00 USD (3 figures) They are indeed 3 nurgling piles, not 3 single nurglings
The Blue Scribes (resin) 40.00 USD

Also a relaunch of Old Metal Deamons into Finecast and then on 18th of August a relaunch of Fantasy Beastmen in Finecast

Further Down The road:

All 4 greater Deamons will get plastic kits (with head/weapon options plus wfb/40k specific bits on sprues) and that there will be "resin conversion packs" to make "named greater Deamons". (Hastings) No idea of timescales on this. I am not expecting them to arrive together Or with this wave. (Harry)
Jes Goodwin is rumoured to be doing the Bloodthirster. No timescale for this. (NatTreehouse)

Official Teaer video:


It features:
Meijin from Warseer wrote:1 Khorne bloodcrusher from WFB Army Book cover
2 Soulgrinder from W40k Codex cover
3 Beast of Nurgle from W40k Codex cover

That's all I have
(...)
A couple of tweaks on a sheet/leaflet stuck in WD does not a WD list make!
It may be more than a couple of tweaks but not as much as a WD list ....
My sense of it is it is not that big a document ... in fact I am given to understand it has the fantasy info on one side and the 40K info on the other?
Please, please, pretty please with a cherry on top, O God of Pie and Rumours, tell me that it's 3 BASES of Nurglings for $us 25, and not three poor Nurglings lost in a blister ...

They are indeed nurgling piles, small mounds of nurglings if you will ... not sure what the collective for nurglings would be ... a turd of nurglings possibly.
(...)
Releases getting shuffled backwards and forwards seems like complete nonsense to me.
I promise you that whilst changes do happen but 9 times out of 10 the original rumours were wrong.
having said that ... The fact that the Daemons stuff is on an additional sheet/leaflet would suggest that in this case there may have been some jiggerypokery of some sort I grant you.
If this had been planned three months ago then the Daemons would have been in the pages of WD .... wouldn't they? I guess we will know a bit more when we see the rest of the content.

Ludaman wrote:
does the "Single Print" next to new chariot of Slaanesh means it will be available for limited period of time for retailers and later on all the selling will be restricted only to GW stores? Or we are deep in some nurglish substance and be able to buy it only for limited period of time from any source, just like for example cards with magic spells? Harry?

I can answer that, there are 2 versions, one with a herald, that version's a limited run.
(...)
Oh I don't have an inside scoop, but my guess would be its an online only promo (like the old Khorne herald on Juggernaught) of the plastic chariot which includes a finecasted herald of slanesh (or extra bits to make one).

The only frame of reference I have is from when I worked at a lgs a few years ago, games workshop's limited edition items (like Harry the hammered) would appear in a similar format to what's on that page.

I could be completely off though, as it's all guesswork...

But holy moly it's 30$ more expensive! That Herald better be cast in adamantium....

TheDarkGeneral wrote:I mentioned it on the 40k side of rumors a few times in the past year, but I was told that Daemons in both Fantasy and 40K will get a simultaneous release (again) sometime next year close to the summer months. This includes the new plastic kit greater daemons and 3 to 4 new units all together.

Stickmonkey wrote:This is what I'm hearing as well. Along with Furies and other chariots.

I'll add that I've heard persistent rumors that A:oC and C: are currently being worked on for future release, with lots of implied coinciding with the GD refresh. I'm not sure I can buy it yet, there are a lot of Fantasy and 40k projects that are underway that I fully expect beforehand...

Don't buy stock on that rumor just yet, I mean to say...

The leaflet in white dwarf is what interests/excites me. Nice to have an update to old rules in any form, really.

When would this white dwarf hit... early August or late? I don't subscribe but would like to snag it in the store for the leaflet, just out curiosity.

I don't know if it has been mentioned yet but some of the Chaos Daemons have been removed from GWs website (e.g. you can't buy the anymore). I'm assuming this confirms the rumors on pretty much everything.

I'm guessing it's going to be late July (e.g. the 28th) since WD comes out at the end of every month doesn't it?

I am so deliriously happy to be able to run a total plastic Tzeentchian daemon force. If the new cult troops for Chaos are all plastic (which rumors say is not the case, sadly) then I'm starting a Thousand Sons/Daemon Allies force!

Even if not, maybe I'll run Word Bearers/Cultists and Flamers/2 Horror Units/Screamers/Daemon Prince. And for the Allied HQ, I can use some horrors and a Screamer to make a Herald on Disc.

Oh plastic joy!!
