It is still a little ways out, but Warhammer 9th edition is what a lot of people are talking about. From the round base rumors, to skirmish sized games, and armies no longer supported, 9th edition has been on a series of up and down rumors and dramatic reactions to what may or may not happen.
Here are some rumors from over on Bols that are pointing towards a starter set box release of the "Forces of Light" vs Chaos release.
Please remember that these are rumors at this point.

WFB 9th Box & Armies
The results of the End Times will be directly reflected in the armies included in 9th Edition
Will include good guys (the Forces of Light) versus Chaos – in a loose fashion.
The Boxed Set is set in a former city of the Empire (save your breathe, it’s NOT Mordheim), but luckily the End Times offers up plenty of new choices.
Boxed Set includes a campaign at a skirmish level and is firmly designed to introduce new players into the game at this smaller model-count level.
Look for an increased focus on “Heroes & Characters”, even at the skirmish level of the game.
WFB 9th will kick off a new set of products that cover not only the new surviving factions, but new modular terrain pieces that support the game at all size levels and reflect the new “Post End-Times” world.
