This morning DrLove42 dropped a nice rumor set on our lap. It includes May's big necron release, a suprise flyer release, and even something we hadnt heard yet...... Tau in November. Definetly worth the read. The best part is, a lot of it sounds rather logical with what we have been hearing but is more specific.

Please remember that these are rumors. Salt required.

OK so I went to a comp last weekend (yesterday in fact :P).
At this I had a chat with a guy who until recently used to be a GW manager. He talked with me a bit about upcoming stuff.

Now I know this seems like the least credible source in history (better than my brothers friends sister works at a printing company though) but other people from the club he'd come from say hes usually been right about his rumours;

May
Next wave Necrons. Also 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

DA
Next Book.- Preorder at end of may for beginning on June release

6th Ed
End of June.

6th Ed starter box
Will not be released in the traditional pre-UK games day slot, and will likely be earlier (when he didn't say)

Chaos vs DA. DA includes 5 Ravenwing, 5 Deathwing, some Tac Marines and a Deathwing Commander.

Chaos includes some chosen, a sorceror and a boatload of cultists (He did say he didn't see a Dread - which is against every other rumour thus far I think - But he did admit only seeing some of the sprues- Sorceror also opens up possibilites of those plastic Plaguebearers we've heard about before)

Chaos
Will be before the box set, supposedly preorders up at the end of July.

Tau
November.

He claimed GW are trying to release 3 codexes and the main rule book this year, in addition to another fantasy book and the hobbit stuff, so releases may seem more closely packed than we're used to

As I said, credibiltiy seems laughable, but I believed him. Maybe that makes me an idiot. We'll just to wait and see.....

  2. Kinda odd when the rumor poster admits that the rumor source is highly dubious. Who knows. Maybe he was fired for releasing company "secrets."

  3. If Necron flyers + Necron second wave = me so happy for the rest of the year!

    Dark Eldar fans too will be glad to have their 2nd aircraft.

    Happy for all you Tau fans. I'm not one of you but you've been waiting a while.

    Curious about the Ork and Space Marine flyer. I might just pick up the White Dwarf to have a look at the rules for other flyers. Be the first White Dwarf I've picked up since.....ok I can't remember but it's been a while.

  4. I'm a GW manager and can tell you that we haven't been told a thing yet. Could be squats vs tyranids for all we have been told. I personally get all my news from this site, not in house. (keep up the excellent work by the way)

  5. THERE YOU GO! A GW MANAGER SAID SQUATS! I have been saying it for months, now, and it HAS to be true :p Brb, going to post on every single forum that squats are coming out.

    P.S.- sarcasm font should be applied to that whole passage.

    P.P.S.- I do want Squats though, which will never happen, but still...

    1. I have to admit that this logic is very flawed. If this were the case, we would have 12 codices a year, and squats would be back, and aliens would walk among us. GW managers shoot down just about every rumor, and while some do end up being true, most likely 95% don't. There are just too many rumors for them all to be true.

  9. no, really ( me again) I said that to add clarity, not take it away. Unless the person that said all that has a connection elsewhere he can not verify his information, as staff we are very very often ( tonight being an excellent example) less informed than the forums. I just saw what I will be selling next month for example ( and WOW I can't wait to build it!)
