You do know Natfka never has and never will be any rumors source? He finds or is sent stuff and posts what he thinks might be credible or of interest.

That's like me saying I don't trust you if you posted a rumor you found and reposted here on Dakka.


Assuming some of those "anonymous sources" just aren't them making up for good clickbait to get moa $$$.

In any case all RELIABLE rumours you can get elsewhere and faster as well. There's literally no need to go through that site with made up junk with few copied elsewhere rumours. Just go for the original source.

Details were light, but was said to have some great references to rogue trader and earlier days of 40k lore.

This sounds legitimate, set a campaign in a Necron tomb/ship and then make it all about Imperium and Chaos.

I am not being sarcastic here.

I would only say that the main narrative of 40k is imperium vs chaos so it's not straying from the core "plot" of the new dark imperium

That sounds like a fantastic take on the WQ system - if such a game amped up the ranged combat mechanics it would be exactly what I have been hoping for since the days of Gorkamorka (I always thought that style of game involving the Diggas, Muties, and Orc tribes in competition would be great fun)

How can I put this lightly? I would play the absolute gak out of that game! Though I could see it that it would be subordinates of Guilliman and Abaddon doing things.

It was inferred it was a narrative "race" as a backdrop, just for clarity

One other tidbit was "Genestealers, but not as we have seen them before" I have no idea what that was to be, when it was to be out etc, and I don't think it has a direct connection to the other stuff. I really don't stand behind it as something I am confidant is a solid rumour, just putting it out there. One to keep in the back of your mind I guess.

I really wish they'd consolidate the different knights down to one. All they are are different weapon configurations which are even sometimes changeable as is. The current buckets support every configuration except one for some reason.

Well, he does aggregate.

But that being said, there is functionally no difference between making up your own rumors and posting rumors on your site that have not been posted anywhere else with a source of 'anonymous'. Also, if Natfka doesn't post the non-credible stuff, I would be amazed.

Can you please post links to the original source for all reliable rumors posted in the last 3 months. I don't know where to go, I'd prefer if there was a site that posted all of them but there are no such sites that are reliable.

Dakka had Pretre's magical rumour tracker,

so when BobtheTroll posts a detailed list of what's in the upcoming Cthulhu elves battletome we can check to see if he's

a reliable source (cool start planning your tactics),

a serial nonsense poster (ignore the info it's junk)

or a totally new rumour monger (the magic 8 ball suggest this is nonsense, but maybe something they've said might convince you it's good)

places that only attribute rumours to 'anonymous' it's all guesswork (since we can't gague how reliable the source is), and since more nonsense than genuine info is sent to you'd be better off ignoring them

So of the one's that are not on the rumored release scheduled the possible remaining ones are...

-Adeptus Ministorum (priests + sob)
-Inquisition
-Assasins
-Imperial Knights
-Renegade Knights
-Deathwatch
-Genestealer cults
-Sisters of Silence

Though if we are following the trends for CSM releases we still have

-World Eaters
-Emperors Children

How GWS is going to release the remaining books is anyone's guess, but one's that are probably going to be separate books may be.

-World Eaters
-Emperors Children (much like the TS and DG they are single chaos god dedicated and would seam reasonable that the will get their own separate releases)
-Genestealer Cults
-Deathwatch

The remaining ones are could be anyone's guess and would be more so wish listing than anything. The Sob, Ministorum, Inquisition, Assasins, Imperial Knights, and SoS could be combined into one book of "Imperial Agents" similar to what we had at the tail end of the 7th edition which leave the question of where Renegade Knights are going to fit in (Dark Mechanicus ???? maybe ????).

-Adeptus Ministorum (priests + sob)
-Inquisition
-Assasins
-Imperial Knights
-Sisters of Silence
-Renegade Knights

My wish list would look something like this. I don't know where Renegade Knights would fit in because they are much like Imperial Knights, they have a handful or so of unit entries each.

Adeptus Ministorum ( Sob + Priests + one entry for an Ordo Heritic inquisitor with henchmen )
Imperial Agents ( Inquisition, Assasins, Knights, Sisters of Silence )

I will say if GW releases the Sisters of Silence as their own separate book (like custodes) and dose a whole "we're releasing plastic sisters" and the reveal ends up being the Sisters of Silence. They will piss off so many people.

Looking at what I saw left, there are 10 codexes to go assuming we divide the left over imperial stuff into Adeptus ministorum and imperial agents.
The end of February will see 13 codexes having been released in 7 months, with 4 of them getting major model support, so we will probably get through all the remaining codexes before the autumn.
I think the rumoured release scheduled look very plausible. It has been heavily rumoured that orks will be getting new buggies etc and the still unsolved rumour pic of the wheel would seem to corroborate this, so it makes sense to leave them to near the end.

I would love to see new dark Eldar minis but I doubt we will get much model support for them or the Tau and Necrons so having them come out at the same time as some major AOS releases makes sense.

We know that James Hewitt has designed a stand alone bond game for GW so the May release could well be that. A 40k spin on the warhammmer quest game he designed also sounds plausible. The only question is whether it will be a game using old models like gangs of commoragh, or a way of introducing some new stuff like Deathwatch overkill.

For a starter, agreed. It would let them put in a lot of things that need plastic, like a Crusader Squad and Emperor's Champion, while on the Ork side they could do Kommandos or Tankbustas, plus the usual Nobz/Boyz.

Well, the previous (7th Ed.) Campaign boxes were always only old models with just one new character sculpt per side/faction (i.e. 2 per box).

If that's the format they'll revive for 8th, it wouldn't be new models for troop choices, etc..

No need to listen to the armchair experts, GW is making a killing doing exactly what theyre doing.

Everyone on dakka seems to have some great idea which would sell heaps, revolutionise 40k and make the whole community happy, without considering "Hmmm, GWs profits have just tripled, perhaps they do know what theyre doing..."

You dont get you customers spending money like that if they arent happy.

So. In regards to the chaos gods What I've noticed it:

AoS Nurgle Mortals and deamons got a good size release during Warhammer End Times, they then got a good sized on again just now. The Death Guard Releases took care of 40k nurgle mortals really well.

Tzeetch Deamons and AoS Mortals got a good sized release, and we got a 40k mortals release that has been well padded with AoS tzeentch mortals.

Khorn is in a wired spot. Khorn Deamons have been well represented with a slow trickle of releases over time, and AoS Khorn mortals got a big launch with AoS and the Stormcast. But.... Khorn 40k mortals have strangely been neglected? The 'zerker kit is painfully out of date.

Slaanesh is abysmal. 2 lords and 1 wired cavalry unit for AoS mortals, half the demons in finecast or in a plastics the many players didn't like, and a Finecast Conversion kit for 40k with all the heroes long OOP. Slaanesh almost needs a overhaul across the board to consolidate the aesthetic.I feel like fan reaction of the Diaz Deamonette reprint threw made to order made GW take notice.



Hopeful that was not to off topic, but something me and a friend were talking about tonight well shooting the gak.

With the increase in the size of normal infantry for both the new Death Guard Marines and Primaris, I could see any new Orks in the boxset being supersized as well, so either they will just increase the size of existing units or it'll be some new squads of Orks. I wouldn't be surprised for any loyalist Marine boxset to have at least one set of Primaris marines in the box for the same reason. It'd increase sales of the boxset to people who already have a ton of models for that faction, which is the primary reason for Primaris' existence.

But, yes. Agree with you mate. This game will soon have bigger models. I think it is due to both, sales/knock offs. Have you seen China's reprints? I REFUSE to buy them myself, infact.100% of all my Army's is GW. Btjm.

40k Khorne and Slaanesh both need new releases on the scale of at least the Thousand Sons, and at best, the recent 40k Death Guard.

Khorne isn't doing THAT badly, comparatively; Plastic hounds are needed on the daemons side, but Khorne Daemons aren't doing too badly aside from that (with a named character Bloodthirster, no less). On the 40k side you have the Lord of Skulls, Kharn... and that's it, isn't it? They would need a troops box, an elites box and possibly a vehicle/walker. Maybe even a unique cultist replacement like the Tzaangors, either 40k'ed up Beastmen (or leave it generic 40k so it might be adopted by other armies) or something else.

But you're right, Slaanesh 40k is pretty dire. Off the top of my head they absolutely require:

Daemons:
Keeper of Secrets
Fiends

Mortals:
Noise Marine troops
An elites box
A character or two
Vehicle or walker
Possible Primarch at some point


The Primarchs, I think, are the key to these releases, though. It would seem unfair at best for these armies to have a large release without their primarchs accompanying, since Nurgle and Thousand Sons got theirs. So until you start hearing solid rumours of Angron and Fulgrim coming back I wouldn't get your hopes up.

I feel like Fulgrim is likely before Angron, however, if only for the fact that his conflict with Guilliman would serve up a great narrative for his return.

Not if you want melee options. It's expensive (in £$€) to make just a basic 10-man squad with Chainswords without having them covered in blood drops or wolf pelts or eight-pointed stars.
