Yesterday when I woke up, there were several emails sent my way of the Games Workshop leak that listed out a large number of releases for June 2013 and beyond. In fact that list was very exciting to read through, with Sister's of Battle, Tau, and Eldar all getting releases. There was just so much in there, who couldn't help but to be excited about a possible release schedule like this.


Now that a day has gone by, there is still like always, a concern on whether or not its real. (Does this sound familiar like the 6th edition rules leak?).

While I have my own view on this, this is not an editorial piece, so today's post is on what someone else in the know has said regarding it.

Also note that he lists a codex release schedule here, which I like to the looks of very much, and it fills in one slot that I knew was missing, the one between an Tau and Eldar release.

via Harry on Warseer
The bulk of the Tau release is in production right now and is released before summer 2013.

The Tau models could be the second wave of a Tau release. Which would put them ahead of Eldar in the release schedule.

Dark Angels and Chaos Space Marines will obviously according to the releases be taken care of by then (June 2013)

It all seems to fit in too well with what I know ... not to be right.
Someone is in so much trouble.


The release order I was expecting for 40K was:
CSM
Dark Angels
Tau
Sisters
Eldar
SM
(With 2nd waves and odds and sods thrown in)
This seems to fit with that nicely.

There is stuff in there that I have heard that I wouldn't think is very widely known.
You couldn't guess at this stuff.
If it is a hoax it is a well informed hoax.

Even so, when I broke the list down a bit, they did fall into some depressingly predictable categories.
There are just one or two things in there (which are a long way off) which seemed to fit so well with what I had heard ... that I was sold.

It is completely possible I may be getting sucked in .... and will end up looking very foolish.
I will try and find out if the **** has hit the fan or if everyone at GW is laughing their arse off

    4. Y? How can he? Has he some Secret wire to GW HQ??? The Guy Claims a Ton of Things and some Turn Out True by random Chance! Remember when he had that Big leak about 6th from his GW friend & non of it came True? Apart from GW Doping the 4 Year Cycle again with EDitions. No Titan rules in Main Book. Nö evade! Nö reversing of Turn Order! And so on. According to hin BT came Before crons. The Guy is an absolute Fake.
      Look at what he does... Nö Infolaizismus claims to now that the List is all wrong. So People go to his Site. He is just an attention sucker that wants Klick to make Money.
      He has no facts to Prove the List is wrong! And he doesnt Even habe an explination y. Pretty lamé

    6. This is to the "rabid anonymous": Harry is the man. It's obvious that he has contacts and he is usually right with many of his rumors. He treats every rumor with precaution and I'm pretty sure that, when he seems sure and misses, it's just because his intel is off. As if GW didn't spread out false rumors out there... Anyway, relax man, rumors are tricky, it's not worth insulting or denying someone's credibility just because he gets it wrong sometimes...

    1. Hints abound that Black Templars are going to be absorbed into vanilla Space Marines.

      Delete
    2. I was wondering about the Black Templars thing when they didn't get their own section in the rulebook showcase. Instead they appeared in the standard 'Space Marine' section.

      Delete
    3. Lets for the sake of arguement assume these rumors are true. The BT new boxed units retaining the names from their previous codex would imply that they are getting their own codex. Salamanders do not get a special box called the fire drakes, nor does any codex marine chapter, you simply use the standard kit. But these two kits refer to neophytes, why....they should just be scouts if they were to be absorbed into the Vanilla codex. My money is on a WD suppliment rather than a new codex or being absorbed. But then again, this is just my theory.

      Delete
    4. If you look in the back of the 6th ed book BT minis are in the section showing off Vanilla marines.

      Delete
    5. Well for one, remember that ghost21 completely fabricated the rumor threads concerning Black Templars and carried it out for months. He then admitted it and disappeared. There was never anything solid about them.

      Delete
    6. Also, to add support for full Black Templars: why bother including them in the Allies chart if they're just going to be subsumed into vanilla Marines? Surely they could've "forgot" them for the Allies and added that they count as Space Marines in the FAQ.

  3. If this is a hoax...Well played Games Workshop official leaks...well played...

  4. is that why the previous post on the Hobbit stuff was deleted, because your unsure if it was real or was there something else in the background?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No. The GW contract is very strict on nothing form the Hobbit being leaked before the movies. I would assume the original author of the leak at least had that much kindness that they removed the Hobbit items to avoid a s**t storm.

      Delete
  5. Doesn't matter.

    I come here for the rumours, not expecting ironclad facts. True I do get excited (Deathwatch and Agemman) but I do so knowing full well it might not happen as quickly as rumoured or might not happen at all. Sometimes there's disappointment, but hey if you're going to listen to rumours (gossip) expect to feel like a numpty 80% of the time (being generous).

    Whether a brilliant hoax, or catastrophic leak from Games Workshop. Somebodies informed or ill-informed opinion. Keep these rumours coming and leave the facts of what the future might be to the history we'll be remembering when it happens.

    1. Well said about the nature of rumors.

      Delete
    2. I fully second that. Let the rumors roll and everybody who take them ALL for real surely doesn*t know what he's going up to.

      Delete
    3. its not that I BELIEVE. it is however fun to speculate. So, that is why I asked about the previous post. If Natfka removed it because it was so out there or if he had gotten a request for it to be removed by GW.

      Also, on that previous post I had asked, if the original release of the LotR stuff, did they release items that did not have anything to with that year's release of whatever movie. Cause I can see New Line Cinema bitching about having a Smaug figure release in 2013 especially if he is not in the first or possible the second movie.

  6. I hope it's not a hoax. I've been waiting for official Genestealer Cults for years.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I can't imagine that part of the rumour is true at all. I'd be happy to be proved wrong, but stealer cults seem just too limited for GW to bother.

      Delete
    2. They will be releasing small, seemingly "limited" allies supplements throughout 6th editions existence, however, so it is possible.

      Delete
    3. "Genestealer Patriarch" I could see as a hoax; "Patriarch Dumas, the Veiled Fiend" is quite specific, and gives me some hope.

      Delete
  7. Anyone else wondering what happened to the lotr article posted earlier today? You know...the one with all the product coming out?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think there's a lot of stuff that meshes up with this. The information lockdown in GW HQ is ending around June, the Chaos Marines and Dark Eldar should be released before then, and all that info about other Codices being more or less done with their model ranges ready to hit the sales floor... It all matches up pretty well.

    Granted, the main thing I'm hesitant about is.. this is a long ways out. We're not even to September, we still don't know when exactly the Chaos Marine Codex is going to hit and whether or not we'll really have time in 2012 for the Dark Angels Codex. By the beginning of 2013, a lot of this stuff could be shuffled around drastically, or GW might decide that Sisters or Tau still aren't popular enough and will shelve them for later.

  9. Where about are Orks in that list, as loads were mentioned in the schedule?

  11. My blood pressure is through the roof this morning and I don't know if its from excitement or all the salt I just consumed...and I dont care!
    Keep those rumors coming natfka, your doing a great job.

  12. FAEIT 212 has been locked down! Ha HA!

    So, there are no Hobbit releases then.............

    ReplyDelete
  13. I personally hope it is true. The possibility of having the Cabal in 40k would be awesome! loads of weird and interesting aliens. Some of which sound like they came right out of a Stapledon novel. I love the rumours and possibilities of there being "allied contingents" in WD - would be exactly what I want from the game, so IF true - i'd be a happy geek.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm or a huge fan of the allied supplements releases, just because it's like adding in new armies which will need more and more updates. Not to mention if you miss a WD you can't go back and buy it if you decide to play the army anyways. And I know as soon as they release a mini army, there will be a clarion call to make them into a full codex, which will not happen.

    But if it does happen, I'll just geek out with everyone else and enjoy these releases for what they are. Also, natfka's silence is a little unnerving.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Are we still expecting chaos to be the first 6th codex, have we heard anything more about it?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I would like to hope that the Sisters part is at least true. I've had armies since Rogue Trader\early 2nd Ed for 40K, and nothing ignites my hobby fires more than them. The only reason I don't continue to collect more right now is that the current metal range has been done to death (by myself). New plastics will encourage me to replace every model I own.

    I know that everyone is talking about x-persons "credentials" but without actual confirmation of how they get their "rumors", I just take them as guess work. Yeah, if you pay attention to how Gamesworkshop is shaping up its model lines (standardising armies to a certain extent, like how WFB armies always get a big, large plastic model - the NecroSphinx and Luminarc are prime examples), I have no doubt you can make "solid" predictions about a range of models coming out.

    I'll make a prediction right now - the next warhammer army to be released will have

    New Plastic Hero
    New Plastic Large-Monster or Warmachine (it follows a pattern)
    New Plastic Special Choice on foot (see below)
    New Plastic (or Resin) Monsterous Cavalry\Infantry (because they're *all* getting some, this much is obvious)

    the same can be said for 40K - I could've seen the Necron transports and vehicles coming from a mile away. I didn't need someone else ghosting around the "possibility" of one.

    1. If nothing else it can show GW that they will make a bunch of sales if they release SoB codex and models.

      The waiting though is the hardest part.
