So, the general line of thought is that April will be a big Empire army book release, and that May just might be our second wave of Necrons that many of us have been waiting for. This rumor goes against that grain, saying that the necrons will come next out next month.

So disclaimor on the source, it was a local GW manager that is the source, and we know the reputation GW managers have for information. While I think its possible they will come out in April, I think more likely we will hear about them from GW at the end of April when we get May's White Dwarf for an early first weekend of May Necron release.

I do think it would be cool though to see the second wave of Necrons released in April, or earlier, since it would open up May to a possible 40k codex release.

Here is the rumor, please take with a lot of salt please.

Over the weekend, I got the heads up from a manager at a local GW that Stalkers, Scythes, Blades, Spyders, and Wraiths are out in April...


  1. Is it not possible to have Empire for WHFB and a Necron 2nd Wave for 40K?

    New Empire army book and models at the beginning of the month, Necron 2nd wave at the end of the month?

    Doubt it would be the other way around.

    Either way, I hope this rumour proves true.

  2. We have had this rumor now every other day since January.

  3. GW does have delays sometimes. Could have been right several times

  4. Why bother with a necron second wave when Tau are screaming out for a new codex?

    1. Say they release a new Tau codex with some new models.

      Now imagine a few months later someone asks:

      "Why bother with a tau second wave when Templars are screaming out for a new codex?"

      How would you answer?


    2. Because they already released the codex? Why would they not put out the models for a codex they just released? Nevermind the fact that the two have nothing to do with one another. Sculptors don't write codices, and they aren't delaying the release of something just to put out a wave of models.

    3. Old man is riding a donkey, led by a young boy.

      Passerby complains how the poor boy walks while the old man sits on the donkey.

      The two swap places.

      Passerby complains how the poor old man walks while the boy sits on the donkey.

      The two sit on the donkey.

      Passerby complains how the poor donkey is carrying the weight of the two.

      They both walk.

      Passerby complains about the poor old man walking when he could easily ride the donkey.

      Old man sits on the donkey.

      Passerby complains about the poor boy having to walk while the old man sits on the donkey.

      They swap places. Again.

      Passerby complains about the boy riding the donkey while the old man walks.

      They both get on the donkey.

      Passerby complains.....

      .....donkey gets angry

      You won't like it when donkey gets angry.

    4. Click


      "They call me ass, kickass!"

  5. Amen shrike. I just played against a brand new necron player. After the game i was explaining the problems with my codex, specifically marker lights and fire warriors. Like how a necron warrior is two points more for better stats across the board and a 5+ effective invulnerable save. he laughed that i managed to kick his ass with that codex.

    1. So, you're bragging about beating a new player? That's just sad...

    2. You probably won because your friend who's new had never seen tau before cause they are so terrible now. So you only won due to the element of surprise. Congrats :P

    3. No, i won because a 6th turn push for objectives and a lucky broadside barrage.

  6. I like Empire....
    ...but I like Necrons.

    Which ones best?

    There's only one way to find out......

    Aha! An idea! WHFB Empire VS WH40K Necrons! Whose up for a scrap?

    1. Ha the empire can barely fight off hordes of deranged rat people. Moneys on necrons

  7. It seems to me that the "Phaeron Setek" is just fanboying and wishlisting a for the necron releases. It's just sad and too vague for me

  8. With the recent increase in the size of the Design Studio team and the White Dwarf team we could expect output to increase this year which means Empire and second wave Necrons in the same month is fairly possible.

    I know the increased team size is mainly supposed to cover LOTR, but the extra bodies can't just do this and nothing else - LOTR has only so much mileage. That said we've also got the new paints this month - could be a bit busy - hey who knows.
