This Week's Releases, Along With Pricing, a Teaser Video, and Additional Information


The Endtimes happened when I went to sleep last night, and woke to a ton of information on what is coming out for this week's releases. There is a lot of information here to check out.


First off, here is a link to the video just put out by Games Workshop showing the Elves and leading into this next release.

Here are next week's releases. I have added the pricing from a separate anonymous source here on Faeit 212, and also have the following information about the Endtimes: Khaine book release

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
Endtimes: Khaine is two books in a slipcase and focuses on the Elves
Book 1 – 144pgs focusing on background and artwork detailing the story of the Elves.
Book 2 – 48pgs with the new rules for the Magic of the End Times, new spells for all spell casters, three new army lists, new characters, and seven new scenarios.

via Meraklis over on Warseer
New Release items for this week are: -
· £38 Warhammer: Khaine - Available While Stocks Last - The next installment of the End Times.
The book contains rules for characters including Malekith, Tyrion, Imrik, some chap called the Eternity King and The Avatar of Khaine.
Apparently there are "amazing changes to how magic works in the End Times" and it looks like each lore gets a new spell, there's a preview in the magazine but I don't have time to type it out now.
They talk about the lists in the magazine: There is the Host of the Phoenix King which seems to be a combined Asur, Asrai, Druchii army under Malekith and Teclis and the Aestyrion, who are loyal to Tyrion.
There is a third list mentioned but no details given other than: "In Warhammer: Khaine there is, once and for all, an absolute winner in the war for the Phoenix Crown. The third army represents the Elves that survive." 

· White Dwarf - Issue No. 44 - 36 pages of everything that is exciting and new in the Hobby this week.

  1. Really looking forward to this one! Dark Elves are what got me into the hobby in the first place way back when, and while I wouldn't be too shocked if Malekith (my favourite character) bit the dust, can't wait to see what happens.

    1. isn't that in theme though sort of with dark elves [and skaven etc] that they would backstab their grand mothers cat to gain more influence or power. brings someone new for the DE eventually. [or he becomes an avatar and both/all/most rumormongers were partially right]

  2. So... No new rules for Wood Elves? =(

    1. Well, apart from new spells, the ability to run with other Elves and getting the Avatar.

      I was really hoping Orion would get beefed up like Karl Franz did =(

      Delete
    2. Orion isn't relevant, for one, and there's no fluff justification for that to happen to him.

      Delete
    3. 1) HAHAHAHA no.

      2) You can invent one. It's called writing something. With your brain and things. Furthermore, the Wood Elf book states that as the End Times approaches, Orion has been becoming more wild and uncontrollable, leading increasingly large and powerful hunts across the worlds of men.

      It also states that Ariel is becoming increasingly aware that the Asrai must play their part in the coming storm and must work together with lesser races. Given that she's the only one who can somewhat control Orion, it makes sense for her to direct his fury towards the Chaos hordes.

      So there's some justification for you. Good enough? Try reading the damn army books next time.

    4. And supposedly Araloth on a dragon.

    1. Thank god, maybe you'll stop complaining too?

    2. +1 40k Player.

      It's like people just can't bear to give fantasy its hour in the sun. You think the BA dex is old? Trying being a Bretonnian player.

      Delete
    3. Another +1 for 40k player, for all the reasons Thomas gave.

      Delete
    4. I think in a few more +1s he'll be entitled to one full internet.

      Delete
    5. -1 to 40kplayer. How dare someone have an opinion that does not perfectly coincide with mine! RAAAAAWR ignorant nerd rage! Must ad hominem and reduce all contrary opinions to senseless whining to prop my own fanboy "gw can do no wrong" position!

      Delete
    6. I'm going out on a limb eher with a left field +2 40k player!!

      I'm a Blood Angel player through and through but I'm perfectly happy to wait a little while longer for my book.

      Also, whilst I sadly don't play Fantasy anymore, all the recent End Times stuff has been I-M-M-E-N-S-E, and it great to see Fantasy getting a much needed injection of plastic c0c@ine.

      Th3maninblak, I have a spare rock from my garden you can crawl back under if you're done with GW :)

      Delete
    7. Th3maninblak, the reason they're doing it this way is so that they can devote more weeks to a BA release, like they've done with the other 40k releases this year.

      If you really want them to poop out a codex for you, no new models, and then move on to the hobbit...then I guess I see where you're coming from?

      But if you, like the rest of the 40k fanbase, probably want more attention dedicated to your army - then this is the right thing to do. One week of End Times, no new End Times models, then Hobbit, then BA full release for a month in January.

      Delete
    8. Well said that man, remember though... Don't feed the Trolls!

      Delete
    9. Th3mainiak: Are you the same guy on dakkadakka who asked a question about the Flesh Tearers book 4 times in the BA rumor thread? Because I almost created a login to send you a message. It was for preorder on Black Library for two weeks before someone noticed it. It is just a book.

      Delete
    10. +1 to 40k player, and I say this as a 40k player.

      Is three whole weeks so long to wait? Remember when we waited 6-7 months between releases? Could we not just as easily ask, "interrupt a perfectly good End Times campaign for some BA's vs. Tyranids that have armies not even that old? I'm not buying GW for awhile.. "

      Delete
    11. +1 40k. I'm a dedicated 40k player but my tyranids just had a great few weeks and, while I'm quite keen to see how the whole BA thing pans, out I'm happy to wait and give another game system its chance in the limelight for a while. I don't play fantasy and still think its great to see GW give fantasy players all this end times love. It can't all be about you and 40k, Th3maninblak.

      Delete
    12. Well of course you're happy, you've just had a second (albeit needed) update in the same year! ;-)

      Think a lot of Ba players are down today as this has kind of confirmed nothing until next year now.Hopefully it means a good update to come.

      But don't talk to me about waiting, my other army is Bretonnia! ;-)

      Delete
    13. FWIW Th3maniak or whatever it is, is back on dakka proclaiming LOW gaming was wrong because they said the codex would not drop until December and pouting about how we BA players are never getting a new codex.

      Delete
    14. well people [me among others] have mentioned no BA. maybe listen and wait and see. if people [myself included] who mentioned such are wrong you don't have to wait long, either way a few extra weeks is not that long to wait. Play a computer game or something and before you know it 2015 will be here. i'm sure the wait will be worth it [beside some changes]

  4. Good news for me gw wants me to pass my. Exams this year

  5. So it's just the book for now and what, the models will come later?

  6. there is a hidden message on the GW page.
    "The flames await the phoenix, but the dragon stands against him."

    1. The Void Dragon? Necrons in WHF? It's about damn time!

      Delete
    2. Ha, hardly. :P
      In the WHFB elf fluff, the next phoenix king has to immerse himself in sacred fire (flames of Asuryan) to prove himself worthy. If not, well, he gets sold as a few buckets of extra crispy recipe to some wandering Orcs.

      Judging by the message there's a new candidate, but Caledor (the dragon-y province) probably don't want that to happen.

  7. The Hobbit models are while stocks last?... Guess they will be around for a while then...

    1. Zing! In fairness, if Thranduil is mounted on his badass stag thing, I might pick one up and see if it scales well with a Glade Captain.

      Delete
    2. True but at least that means GW is making a single printing and then jumping ship. They will finally be able to divert more resources to 40k and fantasy so things might not go out of stock as quick next year.

      Delete
    3. GW have a contract to support The Hobbit until some time in 2015 i believe, they have to release a certain number of models to fulfil that contract, this is just them doing that I guess, after that I'm sure we'll see it gone, maybe to be replaced with a different lisence?

      Delete
    4. Yup, the Perry twins are still doing it I think. They left GW after doing the original LOTR minis and they were hired freelance to do Hobbit. Correct me if I'm wrong there.

      Delete
  8. Can’t wait to see photos of the new Hobbit releases.

    ReplyDelete
  9. New spells?
    Combined elven armies?
    Avatar of Khaine?

    My inner gamer cries tears of joy.
    My poor vallet cries tears of sorrow.

    2. atleast they wiped after they sprayed.......[read it however you like]

  11. There should also be Battle Magic : End Times inbound too

    ReplyDelete
  12. I wonder if the additional spel per lore will be a summoning spell for a golem/elemental for the different schools. It'd be a good way to sell more models for GW and it'd go along with summoning daemons and undead but not so evil...

    1. I really hope for some animal summoning for Beasts.
      I mean, c'mon, mind-controlling some wolves should be easier than summoning a whole lot of skellingtons.

  13. Dead-things shamble-scurry over man-thing lands. Snot-things come from the sea. Elf-things fight and die-die on their island-nest. No difference to Children of Horned Rat. Skaven win-take all! From beneath you we devour!

    Eek! Back to our holes!
