News and Rumors
Shield of Baal: Exterminatus

This is the latest information on what is coming out now about the Shield of Baal campaign, which includes the limited edition Broodlord that was talked about sometime ago now.

Ok, this is either going to go down like a lead balloon or I may have just found the holy grail of rumour farming!!!!

So here goes, the next book being released for the campaign is.... 
Shield of Baal:Exterminatus. 

Not only that but the Blood angels codex is coming with this funky little tidbit:
Codex Blood Angels Sanguinary Guard Edition
As well as:
Blood Angels Data Cards(English)

I know people will throw salt all over this, but I believe it is genuine and I have proof but I just don't want to give it away just yet in case Games Workshop patch that particular hole because it could be a potential gold mine for info.

"The Sanguinary Guard edition will be similar to the wolfguard limited edition SW codex with counters and an artfolio.. should go up for preorders the last week in november if the timetable is correct along with the much anticipated LE boxed set that will almost certainly include the new tyranid broodlord i told you about a few weeks ago"

Endtimes Khaine

All hints, including the one from the back of the White Dwarf this week are saying that the Endtimes is coming again, this time to a book called Endtimes: Khaine. Here is the latest.

A quick look  at next weeks white dwarf and am a little disappointed, basically a load of single hobbit miniatures, but also the end times book khaine. I could be wrong but it did not look like a novel. It also said book one on it so maybe it's a 2 part release. 

The teasers for next week weren't giving away much except it mentioned about the shield worlds so I imagine it will be going back to the Baal campaign. 

The teaser hint in the back of this weekend's White Dwarf says "Once More Unto the Endimes"

Now what if I tell you that
1.) the Elves ET book will come with no models alongside it and 
2.) there will be two more ET books after it?

Additional Endtimes Rumors

via Fen on Warseer
The next #whfantasy The End Times books/stories will be by Gav Thorpe (soon, Malekith) and... Guy Haley (goblins ?) #BLWEEKENDER #BLW14

Brother Dimetrius
From Twitter I gathered that the Guy Haley book would feature Skarsnik.
So this seems to confirm that book 4 will feature Skaven. Given Gav's publishing history, we can be fairly certain that book 3 will be an Elf book (or will feature Dark Angels..

Plastic vermin lord, other Skaven stuff.
Also it's been a long while but iirc there's still some as yet unreleased big kits, a big dwarf Warmachine with smashy fists and a large angry looking statue type thing, possibly of elvish design?

Think it was based on the (very) old dwarf juggernaught iirc

via Noble.6
A couple of weeks ago, my local GW manager (a Skaven player) searched End Times SKU's whilst I was in-store, looking around known numbers (Glottkin). Luckily GW are relatively predictable and followed a pattern. This is the information we pulled up:

1) Elves novel is called The Curse of Khaine
2) Skaven novel is called Rise of the Horned Rat
3) There is a listing for something called Archaeon, priced at £20. There is nothing currently at that price.
4) Something (unsure of what) called Deathblade. Which sounds fun.

He confirmed that December will be dominated by the Hobbit releases.

His personal opinion on the (possible) 5th End Times book was the Empire et. al fighting back, though potentially could be focussed on Archaeon finally leading his main invasion, with the other factions "joining" to fight him whilst vying for control over their rivals.

  1. i think book 4 might be about the big punch up in Karak Eight Peaks.

    "It also said book one on it so maybe it's a 2 part release. "

    Each ET release so far has been a two volume slipcase, book 1 is the fluff book, book 2 is the crunch book

  2. Keep in mind next weeks WD features a tyranid batrep that will show just how fearsome the new bugs are in battle.. their opponent isnt so much a surprise considering everything that's been building up ;-)
