This weekend was extremely busy, rumors, articles, and the new site. With everything going on, I had missed hard on wrapping up last week's news and rumors. I am going to skip the releases and jump right into what was being talked about, including early information on this week's pre-orders and the second release of the campaign; Shield of Baal.

Saw a pic of the new Blood Angels Tactical Marines box (yes, Tactical!). Probably out before Xmas. 
Going by the pic, they seem to have grav weapons and a heavy flamer similar to the Sternguard version.

Hi Natfka! I just talked to my local GW manager, who had just returned from a sales training event in Dallas, about the availability of Shield of Baal: Leviathan. He confirmed that a softback version of End Times I: Nagash was coming, that it is going to be direct-only, and will be an "always available" product, and that a reprint of SoB:L in some form would almost certainly happen at some point as well.

I have just been speaking with a GW store manager on the subject of the recent endtimes and leviathan sell outs. Apparently Games Workshop's original plan was to make a certain amount of hardback books, that would eventually sell over a longer period of time and that in a year or so, they would release a paperback copy. 

They put in the order with the print company for a specific number of units for ALL the endtimes books at once (meaning that any future endtimes books are already printed and sitting in a warehouse). It turns out that they completely underestimated the popularity of these books - since 45% of their sales come from 40k alone - and so they didn't have enough to supply the demand. 

So they weren't intending for it to be such a limited run and therefore it will come as a blow to them to not be able to sell more of the hardback copies. This meant that they have moved forward the production date of the soft backs and being webstore only products stores are now asking around how many people want copies so that they can have a limited in store stock. (Shield of Baal: Leviathan will also be getting a paperback edition in the coming weeks as well).
