The floodgates had opened this week, and were seeing lots of information regarding the next 40k codex, Space Wolves, which seems to be just around the corner.

Dark Age Fanaticism
Dark Age was on fire this week, with the announcement of Fanasticism, and spoilers revealing that Gencon will have over 30 new models, a tournament pack and more. Dark Age is one of my favorite skirmish games, and it is great to see them in the headlines a lot this week.
via an source that did not mention whether or not I could use his name.
There will be over THIRTY new models for pre-release/general release at GenCon.
Not only that, but Dark Age has revamped its scenario and tournament system. The document is supposed to launch during GenCon, and will feature around TEN Primary Scenarios, with a Secondary Objective Deck also being released that contains THIRTY Secondary Objectives.
There was more, on Facebook, Dark Age miniatures revealed a lot of new artwork for their upcoming releases, and even a few fantastic sculpts. Here are a few of those pics, and some link through the previous week's Dark Age articles to see more.
Bretonnians are rumored to be the next up for Warhammer Fantasy, and with that this week, we had some box sets revealed on Italian forums.
