This week has been extremely busy with Tyranid information breaking and pics leaking throughout the internet. On top of that, the latest news on Escalation hit, bringing superheavies and D-weapons to tournaments like the the Throne of Skulls.
Faeit's Weekly Tarot takes a look at what happened this last week, from news to rumors just in case you missed something. Also keep an eye out, because there is often something new or breaking that occurs during the weekend, and this is where it ends up.
This was a busy week starting off with rumors of what Forgeworld and Events like the Throne of Skulls, was going to do regarding Escalation and Stronghold Assault. We also had a full week of Dropzone Commander teasers and the beginning of full model reveals.

Tyranids came by storm this week, and there was no hiding, as picture leaks from the upcoming White Dwarf were everywhere to be found. Of course we had release information hitting as well, and much more regarding the new Tyranids.
A full line up of leaked pics can be seen here.

There are two rumored dataslates coming in January, and while we do not expect any new models coming from these, but there should be some new rules and layouts for these formations. Dataslates could easily become a way for Games Workshop to release less mainstream forces in the 40k background.

No Rumors or News Beyond this Point
I am rating what I personally think of the rumors (not the source). This is based off of behind the scenes knowledge, what different sources are saying, and general logic and guesswork. It goes like this
5 Stars. If its got a 5 star rating, Although still rumor, its only so because nothing has been officially announced (These are on the level that the Rumor Information is just undeniable or confirmed )
4 Stars is a very reliable rumor, and comes from someone I generally know to be in a good place, or the rumors match up well. These are not facts!, These are still rumors, and even great sources can have some information wrong on occasion. (think hastings-like, or close to that)
3 Stars, is a decent rumor. Should be looked at with some truth in it. An average rumor (most will fall here). Rumor based off of real information, discussion, or we do not know where it falls. (Like I said, most will fall here, and this is the baseline.)
2 stars. Most likely speculation, but sound OK. Every once in a while these have something (think Natfka doesn't really think this is happening, but ya never know)
1 Star. Way out in left field, and I feel that these are probably just wild speculation or made up. (think whoa, where the hell did this come from, and generally posted up because its fun, or Natfka was bored)
