This week through in a lot of rumors, and while there were rumor bits that were rather out there somewhere, there was also a huge host of reliable rumored bits. It is time to dig through these, and list out what happened this last week, so that as new rumor bits come in, we can build on top of these.

What you are about to read are all rumors. While no rumor is 100%, the following are the most reliable rumors that occurred this week. A lot of the chatter or rumor reverb has not been included, but this is not to say that there is no chance of something not listed here happening, or vice versa with reliable rumors being either slightly off, postponed projects, or any of the other events that can change our course.

Lets start off with the rumors by Hastings. Instead of listing out the entirety of the rumor dump, here is a brief overlook at what was said. For more details just follow the links.

via Hastings on Faeit 212
-In No Particular Order-
Adeptus Mechanicus Codex & models (full release)
Genestealer Cult Codex & models (Harelquin sized release)
Deathwatch Codex & models (Harelquin sized release)
Horus Heresy Standalone box game, on sale for a few months, then models become part of 30k range - Mark 4 + Cataphract armors featured.
Assassins Standalone box game, on sale for a few months, then models become part of the 40k range.

Also of note:
Greater Daemons all complete
Dark Angels later in the year

Tzeentch later in the year

The "starter set" is in fact a standalone game, however I'll accept starter set as it does lead onto the main 30k game. I think it's safe to assume that 30k could/will have a different game mechanic to 40k, or it would be pretty pointless as a standalone game. Hence the reason that some boxes will contain rules for both 30 & 40k (if the rules weren't different they'd only include 1 set of rules.

It's not however a safety net for WFB, it's a replacement for lotr/hobbit on the shelves as AFAIK all of this is going direct only.

In the last days, there were some rumors by Hastings, what i can say from my sources:

-The Box  is a Standalone / Starter Box hybrid Gaming Set (like the last two)
-The Box works alone but can be used as a base for Crusade Era Armies.
-More sets will come to give HH player a basement in Plastic
-Legio Mk4 Power Squad box
-Maybe the release of a Termi and a Dread box with neutral designs to combine it with the FW legio specific packs and dreads
-Possible a Rhino I upgrade sprue within a own set
-GW will release only a base of models!
-Sells of FW products in the GW-Shop coming near

LotR and Hobbit
via Steve the Warboss on Faeit 212
-GW have the licences for the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings extended for 5 years.
-GW have extended the Licence only for sell the rest of their Miniatures.
-Without a license, GW must destroy the unsold Models.
-Lord of the Ring Books will become a last reprint

It's look like may will be a interesting month. May is one of two month when nobody at GW can make holidays
-The rumored Horus Heresy Gaming Set will come at the end of the Month
-All Hobbit and LotR Products will going direct only at the same time

Codex: Skitarii
These are reference to older rumors that can be found at the following links. There is a lot of odd admech rumors as well, including those saying we will get two codices

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
No, there is no mention of the Horus Heresy on the pages I have seen. These are codex entries, and the weapon section is titled -Armoury of the Forgeworlds- and then goes on to mention arc weapons, cognis weapons, eradication beamer, all like we talked about before. 

At the very top of the page, it starts off with the text- This section of Codex: Skitarii lists weapons and equipment used by the Skitarii, along with the rules for using them in your games of Warhammer 40,000-

There is no mention of Warhammer 30,000, the Great Crusade, or the Horus Heresy. Just 40k.

via Lords of War Gaming:
- April/May
- It’s Admech, but there will be two codices.
- Tanks will be walkers.
