As if carrying on yesterday's post, we have more rumors that I have put together pointing towards what we will see in February and March of this year for Warhammer 40k.

Yes, it looks like a long awaited Tyranid wave may be here, along side a second Necron wave. Imperial Guard for this rumor are not on the February list, however, I would not be surprised with all the talk of a few IG releases, that we might just see those in March, and finally a new codex release (BT or Tau) in April.

Please remember that these are rumors, and are to be taken with the standard amount of salt. However there is lots of talk here from different sources that point to these coming.

early next year youll be getting a second wave of necrons - entries in the codex not covered by the first release, 4 vehicles, a walker and 2 aircraft, also new tomb spiders IIRC.

Can't recall of the top of my head about the vehicles, the walker Artwork shows a large spider with a necRon driver and scorpion tail over the head blaster type thing.

Another confirmation by him (on Wraiths and Tomb Spyders):

I've already posted on the necron rumour thread that these items will be part of the second wave on necron models released early next year. The jetbike type necrons are also amongst the new kits.

Recieved information/rumors today. As stated by Dr.Pie himself the wave 2 is planned. Was told it will arrive late feb./early march and will be the following kits:

- Doom/Night scythe (plastic kit) 1 model
- Canoptic Wraiths/Spyders (Plastic kit) 3 models
- Iluminor Szeras (Finecast) 1 model
- Anrakyr the Traveler (Finecast) 1 model

Also release of a Battleforce consisting of the following:
- 16 warriors
- 4 scarab bases
- 5 Immortals/Deathmarks
- 1 Ghost/Doom ark

Tomb blades and Triarch Stalker are missing from that list, but Hastings said a whle ago that they will come with the same wave.

Feb is hinted as a 2nd wave for nids.... and Necrons

Yes ... not so much. (OK not even a little bit)

Nids to get valentine love, crons to get leap year love.
Nids:
There are many more nid kits that are done, some no one would expect. However, not all will be released. Others may be single releases later.

4 plastic kits
4 finecast

After the wave there will still be some model(s) not represented from the codex.
Old models getting finecast makeovers.

  1. Great news on the Necrons! Can't wait to see the army in all it's glory. Plus, the battleforce will likely provide a small saving on collecting.

    I'm not sure on the Tyranids. Too much 'missing codex entries' and 'something else' for my liking.

    At least the Necrons are looking as though they will be getting a finished 'codex' range. Their big selling point for me will be the aircraft and wraiths.

  2. I have alot of respect for Necron models and if the Aracnid model is as much of a gem as I hope it is, I'll get it, just to be able to paint it.

    Likewise I hope some more Nids stuff comes out, but that's just cause I'm greedy lol I love me some Nids

  5. What nids could they possibly release? Are they thinking special characters (Swarmlord, Doom, etc.), or units such as Tervs, Tyrannos, or even... eh, Rippers (lol)?

    1. Swarmlord
      Doom of Malantai
      Parasite of Mortrex
      Ymgarl Genestealers
      Old One Eye
      Tyranid Warrior Prime
      Tyranid Warrior Shrikes
      Myceptic Spores
      Harpies
      Tyrannofex
      Tervigons
      Spike rifles and web spinners for gaunts
      Lash whips and boneswords for warriors
      Wings for the Hive Tyrant/Flying Tyrant
      Rippers and rippers with wings

      Phew! Now that's what should be released. Here's the rest of the possibilities:

      Dominatrix (oh if only!)
      Exocrines
      Dactylis (spelling?)
      Harauspex (spelling?)
      Malanthrope
      Meiotic Spores
      Heirodules
      Heirophants (yeah right!)

      That's all I can think of. Anything else would be new!

      Zoats? No they wouldn't do that!

  6. If there are new units for the Nids that are not in the codex, I wonder if there is a hint of what this may be in the "leaked" 6th edition rules. Under Transports its says

    "There is a wide variety of transports on the
    battlefields of Warhammer 40,000 - the staunch
    Rhinos of the Imperium of Man, the lightning fast
    Raiders of the Dark Eldar, or the caterpillar-like
    Cerebores of the Tyranid swarm fleets."

    Is this just fluff, or a hint that the Nid players will be getting a new dedicated transport? Rumours about Rumours is very shaky ground though.

    As for a February release, for tyranids, I wont hold my breath, but I can see the second wave of Necron arriving given how the Dark Eldar were released. If Nids are released, I imagine that we will get at least a Biovore finecast. Anything else is just too much hoping.

    1. Transport beasts for Tyranids would be just awesome. Not to mention the long awaited 2nd wave... I really hope it will happen in February although I won't hold my breath till then. But Nids would deserve soooo much love...
      Too much "maybe" in the rumor, but we shall see. Let's hope for the best :) (Maybe there will be a small WD update for the new stuff that it not in the codex.)
