Late last year we were hearing that Games Workshop was going to be releasing things quicker, and we were hard pressed to believe it. Now that the speed at which things are getting released has increased, many people are loving the schedule we are on. 

Here is one more release schedule from a source that has a different, but a very close connection to Games Workshop. 

via another anonymous source
Games Workshop is aiming for an army book/codex every month. Its high elves, eldar, apocalypse, lizard men, marines then tyranids. I'm just not sure of the months and whether marines are October or November and what was in between marines and tyranids.

This is a separate source than what we had heard from earlier this morning. I had not checked my inbox yet, when the earlier post went live, but it seems to confirm that we are indeed going to see eldar very very soon.

Attaching this rumor set to months would look like this.
High Elves- May
Eldar- June
Apocalypse- July
Lizard Men- August

then September+ looks like it gets a little vague. Could we see both Space Marines and Tyranids this year?

Also this seems to correlate with Hastings release order.

    3. That's probably the second worst idea ever; after a film maker's decision to cast Bill Paxton in anything.

    4. Bill Paxton was in Aliens. Therefore your statement is untrue as he played that role (cocky marine sees the crap hit the fan and realizes he isnt going to make it out alive0 perfectly.

      Thats also one of the most quoted movie lines I am sure.

    5. You spelled "Bill Pullman" wrong.

  3. I just bought a big mid army for pretty cheap so a new codex this year would be pretty cool....just keep the last guy away from it lol.

  4. Hopefully this translates to Dwarfs before the end of the year and IG soon after, with SW coming soon. Thus all my armies will be updated before I get too old to play.

    2. Depends on the type of release. Codex I believe was next year but there could be a White Dwarf daemon/warriors of chaos style update, as rumour had it. That potential wave could be flashgitz, unless they're a dual kit which they seem to save for 'proper' releases.

    3. Hope to see the meganobz plastic kit in a model wave.

  9. And if you believe the rumours, then you have Bloodbowl(Black Box) in September and Imperial Guard in October but who knows, or was that reversed?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I would really love to get my hands on a revised Blood Bowl, it's my all time favourite game and the first I played.

    That being said if 'Nids were released in October (birthday time) or before the end of the year for Christmas that would be awesome!

  11. If this is true there are not many xenos books left (orcs and DE, Necrons had their upgrade already) before its Guard and full force marine releases.

    1. Necrons are actually in need of an update, but for different reasons than normal...

      Delete
    2. Necrons will get a hardcover treatment like everyone else.

      @Jim Johnson: If you're trying to be snarky and imply they are broken, you are wrong. Heck, they haven't even won any major 6th edition tournaments yet. It's been all Chaos Space Marines, Daemons, and Imperial Guard.

  12. According to the manager of my Indy FLGS ( who used to work for GW), the October "Black Box" has dropped with another release, as an add-on, so it's concievable that we could see a codex released in Sept & Oct, just like March & April. However, he did say that GW never releases anything in December, and we agreed that The Hobbit was likely for November, since the next movie is due out in December. So, my guess (and it is only a guess), is that after Lizardmen in August we could see Space Marines in Septembef & then Orks in October ("Orktober"? It's been done before...). Then the Hobbit in November. Then who know in January? I think Hastings said (or implied) that IG would come next after Orks, and then Nids...

    1. Unlike LotR, the Hobbit releases aren't getting their own month so November would be Hobbit PLUS something else.

  13. We also, strictly speaking, don't know that apocalypse won't have a concurrent codex release. If gw is aiming for a codex/army book a month, and apocalypse is neither of those things... Looking at some of the projections, perhaps it will be apocalypse + space marines in july. Which... Seems possible to me.

  14. Between marines and tyranids, I put my bet on Wood Elves.

    1. Aye, especially after the comment that fantasy elf books were being written together

  15. Eldar in June? Ack! Looks like I've got to finish up my current project quickly to get ready for the release! Guess I'll have to speed up my savings rate for my Eldar account as well!

  16. TYRANIDS ??? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY !!!!

  17. ....Can we talk about this after we get some more info on Tau Rules... LOL ;)

    More Tau! :D

  18. Wood Elves and Dwarves... as likely as Lizard Men. ;)

    1. Seeing as how nothing Matt Ward has written is currently doing damage on the 6th edition tournament scene, I wouldn't be too worried.

  20. If Dwarfs and Wood Elves receive new books soon I will dance around like a crazyman and praise the benevolence of the designers. I've got both armies, but it's actually not about games: it's because I feel sorry for them (and Bretonnians)sitting there with tears in their eyes as VC, Orcs, Empire and WoC have all had not one but two new books since them. I recognise that there are certain issues which may make these more difficult for GW to tackle, but will be very pleased when any/all of them are updated.

  21. Enough Tau, just wait a week for your damn book!

  22. Something Must be going wrong at GW HQ if all These Infos are leaked.
    While its Good to know what dexes are comeing its also Bad becaus People know what dexes are not comeing and might quit!
    Funny to See this change in Strategie by Workshop. Looks like they Need some Cash quik!

  23. now that all my armies are done and updated, all i have to look forward to is the rumors of new GD models for daemons. Considering even the tau are getting a suit that dwarfs the dreadknight, the mighty greater daemons aren't looking so great.
