What are you talking about?
ORKTOBER was hyped up to level 11 last year, why would they stop it now?

Nope, this year it's going to be "All Saints Day Sisters"




While I'm hoping it's true, I've got nothing to back it up.

yeah except the units those kits where for weren't breaking the game, upsetting the meta, any good, etc.

people tend to focus on other factions getting something, anything, but when they get something tend to shrug it off if it isn't made of pure awesome. it's human nature.

and I can in the case of Ork players understand it, new stuff is so far and few that if they get a buncha new stuff and it doesn't radicly change their army well.. they know that could be it for YEARS.

meanwhile space marine players, even just IoM or chaos in general, know that new updates are only a bit off. this has gotten especially bad for players of xenos etc when 6th/7th introduced allies. and IoM could take a little bit of everything, even though many IoM players run pure, they feel a bit salty because we have the option to take all this cool stuff

Not every October is Orktober.
No rumor engines point to orks or any ilk, and they got a decent release last year so ehh.
Personally, other than sister, we are lilely done with 40k for the year, rest will be AOS and specialist games

5000pts 6000pts 3000pts

I tend to agree, the rest of the year for 40k will be sisters, the marine supplements (and accompanying models) and the christmas bundles

Not Online!!! --- have you considered the rather popular "Meng" toon tanks? They're dirt cheap and with a little kit bashing are very decent.

Thank you for this post! It genuinely made me chuckle.

We should hype this up all over their fb page and make it a THING every year.

I think it was ahrd to manage them, I remember nearly a year in advance we where getting so called rumors caliming "2018 WILL BE THE YEAR OF THE XENOS! OCTOBER WILL BE ORKTOBER AND IT WILL BE BIG!" so when the claimed year of the xenos doesn't arrive (or more accurately it wasn't what people expected) people got upset. you saw people raging because GW released custodes in febuary, and "IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE YEAR OF THE XENOS"

by time 2018 had arrived people I think expected NOTHING but xenos releases and expected a compelte reissue of the eldar and ork ranges etc

Which to put it bluntly, should've happened. Nothing against the old aspect warriors but i swear to god friend of mine has had the worst finecrap luck i've ever seen.
And as a former ork player. A bunch of propper new orkz ladz and replacement of some of that failcast aswell should've happened anyways.

GW doesn't seem that keen on just doing reissuing, the CSM release aside they've not really done much of it . although I agree the eldar line despirately needs some love

I wish.

The ork range is missing:
- plastic komandos and tankhunters
- several HQ options. More specifically, a mega-armoured warboss and a generic mek, at very least.
...and that's it.

Then again, GW don't need a full hyped Orktober, just one week to update the dex and release 1 multipart kit and 2 characters.

Being more realistic, I wouldn't expect it before 2020.

Chaos Space marines.
Not chaos.
Chaos as a whole ( Daemons and Renegades and heretics) probably won't see anything, except the whole rumour of Sisters vs lost and the damned comes true, WHICH would be hillarious.

Ahem its not orktober its ORRUKTOBER this year

AoS stole it for the Orruk Battletome (most likely ). Though its not likely to be as big and shiny as the Orktober; so less shiny new models but lots of new Orruk rules!

Add a new Deffkopta to that list and I would agree.

I mean, there's plenty of other stuff I think would be cool to see added or brought back to the Orks, but I think Eldar need some new models more badly than we do. Maybe Necrons and Tyranids too. A lot of our stuff is old but I think it has held up very well.

I imagine we'll get new models when they decide to visit Armageddon again. I think the new buggies/speedstas look good, but I hope what we get next has more customizability.
