Last Minute Changes to Releases


September looks to be a fun month with the release of the 6th Edition Starter Set. What we do not know, is what else is going to be released that month. Something is happening, and perhaps this will shed a little light on it.

Please remember that these are rumors, and that they come with a grain of salt.

I got something which doesn't make much sense on it's own but maybe if you know more. He says everything is pretty chaotic at the moment. At the moment he can't stock some dark angels miniatures, especially death wing stuff. But here is the weird thing: he can't stock space marine tactical squads. Our local gw has one left, didn't get any and can't order more. Our gw isn't small we have usually about 6-8 boxes of standard items. That he can't order death wing items, would make sense in the light of a new codex. Space Marine items make no sense. 


He also confirmed that something was left out of the White Dwarf, he doesn't know what though. They've changed something in the White Dwarf to remove something. He told me they actually changed the cover. This would make sense I guess, because the Blood Angels cover doesn't reflect the contents or does it?

  3. Btw the white dwarf spine cover still goes on. If its a hint about a release, maybe they're still in the planned timeframe for this one at least.

  6. There was a big daemons release in this months white dwarf. The Blood Angels were part of a picture found on page 235 of the rulebook.

    You'll see it's those three Blood Angels, surrounded by daemons under a warp rift.

    As to the rest of the rumour all I can say is: might mean something, might not. Administratum at GW having a few glitches?

  7. I'm confused.

    Stores don't stock Deathwing miniatures anyway. There's only 3 "Deathwing" miniatures and they were mail order only (although no longer available according to the site, which probably has more to do with them being on the wrong base size).

    AFAIK there's only five Dark Angels items stores do stock, and one of those is the codex. As none of them stand out as needing a replacement and all rumours on the starter box have the Ravenwing contingent looking the same as they currently do, I doubt there would be a need to pull these for a release.

    The August White Dwarf had 120 pages, the same as the last two and it had a lot about 6th Ed and the new Daemons stuff. I still don't buy the whole 'something got pulled'. Of course i could be wrong.

    At the moment I'm not putting much stock in any of this info, but who knows...

    1. The mail order death wing terminators are gone. They're still listed in the should, but not available and have no item number internally anymore.

    2. Still listed in the shop... Stupid auto correction.

    3. Metal DW terms have been discontinued for years. Seriously... I buy them on eBay for TH/SS guys all the time.

  8. If you look at GW's DA site. You can't order Deathwing terminators.

    1. They're old terminator models and slightly smaller than current terminator models. They have the wrong bases too. Think this is why they're unavailable.

  9. If this ends up being DA along with the starter....I don't think I am alone in saying:

    KILL! MAIM! BURN!!

  10. Maybe gw will finally do something with us in mind; release the starter, DA codex, AND CSM in September! If only ghat were true :'(

  11. Well this shed as much light on things as a wet match...

    Chaos is "Supposed" to be the first Codex of 6th BUT as long as we still get the Starter set and Chaos is no later than October then i dont mind.

  12. DW Metal were pullend caus they are Old & will be in Starter Box. SM Could just be getting a reboxing with no New sprues or with?!!

    Whitedwarf Could have Bern pulled to Delay DA or CSM Release?!! GW has filler articles for such porpusos and WDs vary in content depending on country.

    Since no CSM were pulled this speaks mors for DAs next Month... Wich means CSM in Nov!

    ReplyDelete
  13. It makes sense that they would be stuffing starter sets with tactical and DA upgrade sprues right about now. I think the 6th ed. SM codex will bring a new tactical sprue.

    1. Mighty be right, but its still a Bit early to pull the tactical boxes. Maybe its just another delivery problem like with the US rule books

      Delete
    2. Most likly, they're just redesigning the box with new logos and art work (they do that around about the time of each new edition)

  14. I am not paranoid its only that they are out to get .....

  15. could it be one marine book to rule them all?

    1. That will never happen. For one, its more profitable to have separate books. Secondly, it would be obsolete the moment a chapter has a new codex. WD updates are too small to change an entire codex.

  17. Perhaps GW realized it never releases a non-loyalist codex as the first one of a new edition?

  18. Less drama? Maybe he is trying to be more cinamatic or forge a narrative with his comments? ­čśä

  19. Maybe gw is full of very tactical people who are missleading us for sport

    If you are not in control act with confidence. If you are in control act like youre not

    Or something like that from Sun Tzu.

    GW is just acting

  20. Dear GW, if csm is being pushed back, AGAIN, could you at least update the FAQ and make the Don AP 2 as he is supposed to be? It is absurd that a close combat champion of the dark gods, costs the same as a 6 man terminator squad with powerfists and combi weapons, but can't even kill 2 space wolf terminators. Yet if his weapon rebels, its a wound that ignores HIS terminator armor!

    1. I think its a GW sales ploy to stretch a garbage codex so more people will buy the new one the week its released. Add to that, many during the long wait will buy different models to compensate for the ones that get nerfed by a new rulebook. Then the dex will come out and you have to buy even more stuff in order to remain competitive. Cha-ching$$$$$!!!
