Its rare to get two bits of information from completely different sources saying the exact same thing on the same day. This is what happened today about 6 hours apart, and it defines the Epic Starter starter set.
Regarding the 40k starter set, I don't know. We have seen information from elsewhere that this is what is going on, but Tim has been dead on regarding many of the recent changes we have seen.
Please remember that these are rumors

The Blood Angels vs. Orks Starter Set will be the Epic Complete Set, not an new 40k Starter Set.
