As of right now, the only "definitive" part is that Ok_E over on reddit said that Guard come after CSM and Daemons.

There's been rumours floating around for quite some time that League is getting an army pack to start with, then a regular release after that.

And Leagues have been getting official previews for their model range, not just a response to a picture leak like guard or angron

The grim darkness of the 41st Millennium is about to change for good – the Leagues of Votann, the newest faction to join the carnage, are soon to blast onto store shelves, battlefields, and painting stations all around the world.
The Hernkyn have been dispatched and the main Oathband is on the march – meaning that the Leagues of Votann will be here sooner rather than later. Sign up to our newsletter to find out exactly when they’re going to be released.


Looks like Daemons > LOV > then either WE or Guard later this year. With them showing off Berserkers this week then I'd bet on Guard being early 2023.

I do suspect that LoV will be like Sisters or Elves with a launch box followed by a proper release later.

Daemons seem like a spacer release, since there are no rumors of any new models for them IIRC, though they could release the missing possessed gribbles from CSM, maybe the new Daemon Prince as well along the Daemon book.

Guard and World Eaters are both getting major range releases with their books.

Im pretty sure the Daemon Prince is coming with the Slaves to Darkness release.

Best thing to release alongside the Daemons book would be an on-foot plastic Slaaneshi Herald.

If I were to guess, its going to go Daemons -> Votann -> SM 2.0 - > Guard/World Eaters -> ? -> World Eaters/Guard. I can't see GW doing two back-to-back releases with as many new minis as Guard/WE will be getting, so I have to imagine theres something else smaller in between.

Pretty sure that Guard were meant to already be out by now. The August coin was an Honorifica Imperialis.

but they had to mess up the coin releases when all the aldari coins were stolen/accidentally put up for disposal

so i don't think they match up any more (although it does suggest soon)

Man, if the Guard codex really is coming out post LVO and 10th edition is really a hard reboot (which is doubt- but may get me playing again if it is), that means Guard players will get to use their book for what? 4 months before the new edition?

Lvo as in las vegas open? Think it's post legion of votann which is coming this fall. Guard likely this year.

But yea still short time for book if it's hard reset but that's still just rumour. Might be bogus.

Yeah, I probably misread what someone posted earlier. I for one would really like a hard reset, but at a Guard player at heart that makes me sad such a major faction was neglected for so long in 9th.

I'd say I'm bummed about it, but
1) I assume the functionality of those two squads can more or less be produced by a
other units (probably command squad)
2) I don't field either of those,so I feel like being upset about losing them would be a bit dishonest on my part

I'm okay with Vet squads being gone (the minis are still usable as a souped up squad of regular guardsmen, etc.), not entirely okay with special weapon squads being gone (even though they kinda sucked and nobody used them vs command squads which basically ended up doing the same thing).

From earlier on, it's been noted that regular squads are going to 2 specials and no heavies.

Normal squads are two specials and zero heavies? So, heavy weapons will only be in specialist squads now? Weird.

How are they being invalidated? Your heavy weapon squad models can still be used, just not as part of a regular guardsman squad.

Many of us build and paint units as complete units with squad markings, names and stories, etc. "Just use the models in some other unit" is not an acceptable solution.

Oh great, so HWS are still around, that makes it perfectly fine that infantry squads, veterans, and SWS are wrecked by some idiot at GW that doesn't care about anything but next quarter's financial report.

I mean, based on how badly they fethed over everyone who plays Chaos Space Marines, I would 100% believe this rumor. Damn, GW cannot get their head out of their ass with these codices.

And many of us know how to remove decals or how to paint over squad markings or can alter that made-up story we had in the first place (since our stuff isn't canon) to fit with the new reality of the upcoming book.

SWS were wrecked the first time the far, far superior D-99 versions were ever showcased.

"Trash all your existing work because GW is a bunch of idiots" is not an acceptable solution.

So? Heavy weapons have been in infantry squads for at least a decade (and probably longer, I just don't have a second edition codex available to check) and invalidating existing units is a complete donkey-cave move by GW.

Who have never had a kit.


See above. "There isn't a kit with this specific name" is not an acceptable reason to invalidate existing units/armies. GW can GDIAF here.
