I know we were talking that Bretonnians would fill that entry slot for Fantasy, but it just shows us how much is not locked down and well known. I often feel like we get more solid rumors for 40k than we do fantasy.
Just remember that these are rumors and to take with a grain of salt. I would hope that as the next month or so rolls around, we should start hearing more Fantasy rumors so we can lock down which codex will be next.
So i understand empire will get 4 kits. Knights obviously. 2 character ones (cant properly remember which ones but if you notice the priest of morr rules i would guess WP's will get a kit). And a new war atlar. The Altar kit will be a dual kit. The second option will be a Nuln seige cannon. Massive cannon used to defend the walls of nuln.
I can't comment on how solid these are. But it's not the first - and probably not the last - I've heard over the last few weeks. It seems to me like the Empire is not too far away, meaning somewhere in the next six months.
Something more: the knight mentioned are supposedly not replacements of the current knights, but demi-gryph knights. See Warhammer Forge for reference.
Empire are not getting updates of current knights, there are different cav coming though. The old crappy horses/knights remain. War altar makes something else, but afaik it's not a cannon of any kind.
No salt required fits with something I heard about a choice of priests.
.... and that would be Myrmidia.
i really shouldnt mention it but some things are back from 4th ed?.. im thinking
warrior priest of morr/ sigmar/ ulric, the ulric may be a re release from soc
oh and a special warrior priestess of myramidia?
I heard more Knightly Orders, not just one box of generic knights, plus warrior priests halflings and some characters, including a female. Never heard anything about a war altar/cannon kit, I heard a vague whisper of a war altar/war wagon kit.
Oh, forgot about demigrpyh/griff/griffon cavalry. Looking forward to seeing those actually.
