May's White Dwarf is very much already claimed by the second wave of Necrons, so what about the month of June? We normally see it the third weekend of the month previous, which means around May 19-21st. A lot of rumors are now pointing towards the end of May or beginning of June for a flyer release. Our current scheduled releases only go up to May 19th. You can see this here. Release Schedule on Faeit 212

What I find interesting is that the Necron 2nd wave specifically left out the flyer type units. The Dark Eldar are specifically missing their void raven, and an Ork flyer has been spotted in the warehouses (all boxed up and ready to go).

If Game Workshop was not planning on releasing flyers at a very specific time, I do not think they would of skipped out on the necron transport that would make them a ton of sales. Practically every necron player will be getting this the second it comes out, assuming of course the release is soon and not pushed off into the far future.

It is very logical to me that these flyer releases are on the near horizon, and today's rumor mongers are saying just that. From DrLove42 rumoring that a surprise wave is coming in May, to Harry saying that this flyer wave is coming sooner than he predicted.

Below is a set of rumors from various sources declaring the same thing, that the flyers are prepping for launch...

Please remember that these are rumors, and there several different sources now all pointing to the same thing.

a suprise wave of fliers (the DE Voidraven, Necron Fliers, an Ork Fightabomba and a aircraft for regular marines. Maybe stuff for other races wasn't sure)at the end of the month, with rules in WD

Read more about the rumor from DrLove42.

Heard that a space marine flyer (not the storm eagle) is to be announced in the next WD.

What I head about fliers and WD was that they would be in the WD at the end of May, so I'm guessing the June WD.

I heard about Fliers at the end of June about a day or two before the BolS thread. So maybe a credible source? Will find out before too long. (he is talking about the rumor from DrLove42)

I have also heard it is coming sooner than I predicted.
I have also heard June.

  1. Before the other rumormongers showed up, did the good Doctor have any real credibility?

    1. He has been around here and other forums for quite some time. While not one of the more well known with rumors to the many, I give him more credibility than most. So yes, I count him as a credible source.

      However, remember that rumors are rumors. Salt required.

      I also look for logic that I can discern from a rumor post. While at first the flyer rumor appeared out of nowhere, a close inspection started giving it some serious credence.

      Only time will tell.

  2. So does that mean the rumored June Codex? Does this mean that 6th ed is coming out before the DA or Chaos Codex? Can someone ask the rumor mongers this question?

    1. If there's a marine flier, it could well be in the DA codex and thus part of the 1st wave release. That said, nothing is written in stone yet.

    2. my bet is flyers will be a big part of 6th and it does not make much sence in pushing a nother dex so short before 6th ED... caus people will wait till 6th before buying a new army.
      but i kinda dought there will be a wave of 3 flyers so quik after the up comeing cron releas

  3. If this is the case, it will determine what army I begin focusing on next... Tau or Salamanders. If the Tau get a flyer, then I may have to throw in with them. If they don't, then it's Sallies all the way.

    1. All of your Tau tanks fly!

    2. Exactly. Why are people with fast skimmer Transporters so concerned with fliers?

      Delete
    3. So, your saying anyone who has a fast skimmer transport, or attack vehicle of any kind, should not be concerned about getting a flier? So Nids should be the ones to get a flier in that case...

      Delete
    4. I hope you aren't referring to tau's skimmers as fast. The only skimmer tau has that is fast is the piranha, otherwise, they may only "fire as if they were fast" with an upgrade.

      Delete
  4. There has been no real mention of a Tau flyer in these rumors. The occasional name dropping which is either made up, has no relevance, or confused with one of the forgeworld models. And by confused I mean the rumor that while everyone else gets transports someone will say that Tau get the Remora, which is a tiny flyer and just about useless, and probably mean to say Barracuda. I really doubt the Tau will get a flyer since nobody has offered any info on it.

    1. I would guess the Tau flyer will probably have to wait for the Tau Codex, whenever that may be. I would guess the same thing for Chaos and possibly Eldar.

      Delete
    2. Maybe Chaos could use the marine flyer...!
      I live in hope for the day when we might have a codex that is just as powerful as the marines'.
      I mean, at least Forge World either let use marine equipment, or give us something to make up for it. Games Workshop just remove stuff and brand it as chaos.
      Well, rant over, I await the flyers release with great interest (and to see how this affects the 2012 release schedule). And as for Tau flyers, I get the feeling that some stuff may tread on Forge Worlds toes (Tau, Eldar, and imperial guard).

  5. I shall await the last week of May with keen interest.

    For the WD pictures that is.

  6. War of the flyers... Hmm. I wonder what the orknmodel would look like. Could care less about the SM. And after all those awesome necron models I want to se I the scythes can beat their artwork.

  7. Just a wild guess but if there only releasing fliers for these certain armies maybe thy means that all the other armed will receive a new codex with them in the next edition and GE didn't want everyone to be left out. Seems fairly plausible as tyranids are updated nearly every edition, tau would get new models with aircraft, DE sm,gk, and IG all have a sort of flyer type unit on them already.

  8. I would punch a baby for a quasi-reliable str 9 weapon on the fighta-bomma. It would solve so many problems for the Orks meta-wise.

  9. Rumours floating around Bugmansbrewery is dwarfs in June with fliers
