For Warhammer Fantasy there seems to be a lot less solid information for what is on the horizon. I spent some time digging for these rumors, and they are pretty scattered, with a lot of wish listing. However, here is what I could dig up for you on what the rumor mill is saying.



There are two sets here, and Britonnians appear to be the most consistant and repeating army that I could dig up. So lets look at these possibilities, and will continue to dig for something much more solid. Please remember that these are rumors, and to be honest, you need to apply lots of salt. My rumor sources and lines to get Warhammer Fantasy information are fewer than my 40k ones.

Bretonnians/Wood Elves (I think the wood elves are wish listing)
Dwarves
Lizardmen.

This would place the first one sometime in Q1 of next year. Other rumors place it like this (although I think the above is much more accurate. Either way, I would say that Britonnians are next.

Bretonnians ------ March
High Elves ------ July

  2. 40k rumors put Tau or Chaos legions in march as well. I am sure that one of the codexs either 40k or fantasy will move forward or backwards a month.

    But still best to put out the rumors as I get them, and then apply logic and schedule conflicts afterwards.

  3. Man, it's getting harder and harder not to get back into Fantasy full steam. If the previously released models are any indication of what's to come, my wallet is going to be empty!

  4. Just To let you know, it wont be High Elves, they literally have every model in their army (almost all in plastic) with the exception of a special character or 2 which may be released as a mini wave, much like the dark eldar court release.

    Its the same story with space marines, there literally is nothing left to release.

    Things that wont be coming for a while:

    Space Marines,
    Orks,
    Imperial Guard
    Eldar
    High Elves,
    Skaven,
    Orcs and Gobbos,
    Vampire Counts,
    The Empire
    Warriors of chaos
    Dwarves

    All those armies have literally all their models, or so close to it that they dont warrent the need for another release.

    Hope it helps

  5. I can't speak much to fantasy, but Eldar are in need of a re-release for codex reasons. They can always update some models if they are worried about not selling them. The rest, however, I agree on (to be fair, two of them were released recently).

  6. Dark Artisan is right about the High Elves, the miniatures are all accounted for in terms of plastics and finecast. The Army Book has also recently been re-done and lacks for nothing.
    The Brettonians, though, have a near ancient Army Book and would certainly benefit from some more plastics.

  7. Does anybody know anything about the new Eldar jetbike? The image has been floating around for years now and with the beauty of the reavers it's hard to image having to be happy with the current jetbike.

  8. I have heard mumblings that Eldar are not too far out. I think that by this time next year they will be on the horizon.

    Its also not just the models line that determines next codex's. There are always new and upcoming entries they can put in, as well as updating the old lines.

    As far as Dwarves are concerned, I have heard multiple times that they are in the upcoming mix of releases. Of course, they are still too far out to know for sure.

  9. The other thing to keep in mind is that GW does take sales or potential sales into account when deciding what army is next. If 6th edition 40k does hit like we've been hearing, you can bet that we'll see Space Marines within 6 months.

    As for fantasy, I would guess that Dwarves and Empire would be floating around the top.
