The Leaked Release List is Real!



There has been all sorts of speculation on whether or not the leaked release list of models for mid 2013 was real or not. This morning we have an answer, and it is one that many people will like.

If you want to check to see the list again, or missed it, follow the link

Please remember that these are rumors, and should always be given a bit of salt

"Those aren't product codes, they're image serials which are later used to print the boxes / blisters.

This gives the model names credibility, but not necessarily the dates.

GW Packaging is produced (graphically, not physically printed) for the most part, well in advance, to make sure that there's always room "last minute" if there are changes to codexes and a new model package is needed.

Bear in mind, that some instances of "produced" mean nothing more than an original photo of a model being photoshoped onto a new background and formatted for one of several standard dimensions. I'm not suggesting custom oil paintings done or anything.

So to summarize:
All of those items are in the pipeline to get Imagery of some kind produced and formatted for the appropriate box/blister it will appear in.  Like the Eldar from 2010 though (which still haven't seen the light of day), that in no way means much when it comes to release dates, beyond the vague promise of "sometime in the future."

Talks for the summer campaign are beginning though, so I'll keep you in the loop for those as it unfolds -- and yes, some of the models from that list would make a lot of sense with what's in the works so far."

  1. Hm..... Entire CSM range released by the end of September....

    Plastic Thousand Sons due by June 2013....

    What to believe...

    I hope that I see plastic Tsons next month! Thanks for the info, natfka

    1. Yes the whole range will be released, check GWs site there's 1k sons. Redos of existing models is not the same as having each unit having a model.

    2. This is the rumor being referred to.

      "By the end of September the entire range will be available.

      That doesn't include resculpts of old models, but essentially there will be no unit entry without a model on the shelf, even if some (read: Khorne Berserkers) are old kits."

    3. Also if there are new models, that doesnt mean they will be available anytime soon.

      The entire list of models is a vague "sometime in the future" type of thing.

      Delete
  2. The intention is to have the entire line available by next month, not every model redone. Both rumors can be true since thousand sons are still available.

  3. The entire range is not a redo of every existing model in the upcoming codex. The entire range of units in the codex will have models. That mostly means only new units, and perhaps a few new sculpts.

    I do not expect new Thousand Son models next month.

    1. Sad, but true... but as long as I know that there WILL be plastic Thousand Sons, I am happy to wait for longer... after all, playing Sisters of Battle does teach a bit about being patient... ;-)

      Delete
    2. Yeah I don't think there will be Thousand Son specific rules/models in the codex, so no released models specific for them by the end of the month.

      Delete
    3. Maybe they are Not in the New dex? :)

      Maybe they get a OEM dex later or become Mercs?

      Delete
    4. Suijin, the rumors all point to 1k sons being in the codex. I just do not expect new models right away.

      Delete
  4. Like to point out that there is a warlock in that list that carries a force weapon.....

    Still seems fishy to me.

    1. Perhaps he has several different kinds of weapons from which you can choose (i.e. different right arms). With finecast this doesn't seem much of a problem.

  5. I think between new codexes (Eldar, Ork, Space Marine) and a "Tempest of Allies" expansion (Sisters?, Deathwatch/imperial agents, Ogreen?, Vespid, Kroot) that these could be new. And interseting new Fortifications.

    :D

    1. I'm a little confused by the prospect of a new Space Marine codex. They've just released the old one on iTunes, which to my mind would suggest that they had no plans to update it soon.. ?

      Delete
    2. Its not coming soon. The closest I have heard anywhere is possibly after Eldar

      Delete
    3. in theory the marine codex on itunes is supposed to be updated. so when the new dex hits it should turn from 5th ed to 6th ed

      Delete
    4. I think they will constantly be updateing The SM dex to avoid the qq from SM Players

      Delete
    5. I have a strong feeling they wont update the itunes codexs to 6th edition especially when they could release a 6th edition codex and charge you again for it

    1. The codes in the list of different models is used for the artwork that goes on the front of the boxes of those models.

      It doesn't mean everything is coming sooner or later, since the art is often done way ahead of the rest of the stuff.

    1. Apparently they are phasing out fantasy over 2013

  10. So that's basically means that all of those listed items already have painted models, because graphics is just photoshopped photo of model itself? Ah, I wonder when will we see those models ourselves?

  11. The amount of Marine stuff is confusing, it's either a new codex or a really LARGE WD update...

    1. Not really. Different WD waves. Look, more fortifications. Look this month, special allies, etc. and of course SM get the most love.

  12. I still dont believe this. TOO much info and TOO much detail and TOO far ahead.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Too far out is the biggest part of this. A long ways ahead. Still its fun to look ahead at what we might be seeing.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Of course it's a rumor, and even if it is 100% accurate right now, there is no guarantee that none of these items will get scrapped, pushed back indefinitely, or swapped out for different models anywhere along the pipeline.

    ReplyDelete
  15. i'm happy of any rumor that refers to new sisters of battle stuff.

    note to GW: release them soon and you get all my money sooner!

    Great work as always Natfka

  19. Eldar Webway Gate, Space Marine Astartes Battle Fortress Defence Wall, Fortress Tower / Pillar of Heroes & Fortress Monastery. looks like new terrain pieces on the horizon... cless.

  20. It dawned on me yesterday, that those new elder unit names might have an alternative explanation. I noticed that The rule book differentiates between elder and elder raider weapons on the melee weapon double plate pages. So maybe they are new units to cover the expansion of the next elder codex to include raider and exodites?

    1. Isn't 'eldar raider' just what the Imperium call Dark Eldar?

      Delete
    2. I'm pretty sure Eldar raiders are just Eldar Corsairs, not Dark Eldar

      Delete
  21. As the plate captions are aimed at the reader of the book, why wouldnt they call them dark elder as in the rest of the book? I just wonder if the way isn't being paved for something.
