40k Release Schedule by the Week



This is one massive release schedule and list. I have added the sources additional comments at the end of the list. When it comes to something like this, I dont really know which way to comment, as there is a lot here. This summer acccording to the list, we should see a campaign book that includes Eldar, Admech, and Dark Angels vs Khorne for volume 1. Volume 2 would include Tzeentch added to it with new units. So most of this is wrapped around a very large two volume campaign book.


Please remember that these are all rumors.

Hehe rumour time.  Eldar are coming, but that release list? Err no. 40k release list for the next year and abit ahoy!
Eldar
Week1: Plastic Jetbikes/Shining Spears
Week 2: Clampack Autarch and Codex

Dark Angels
Week 1: Tac Squad and Codex
Week 2: Summer Campaign Book Volume 1: Eldar Admech and DA vs Khorne

Tzeentch
Week 1: New Daemon Unit
Week 2: Lord of Change
Week 3: Rubric Marines + Campaign Book Volume 2 (DA, Admech, Eldar, Harlequins + Khorne and Tzeentch)(Including a Tzeentch Daemonkin type supplement + rules for the new units.)
Week 4: Campaign Box: Clampack Sorceror and Chaplain

Week1: Campaign Box: Tau vs RG (Plastic Commander and Captain)
Week2: Clampack Ethereal and Codex

Deathwatch
Week 1: Plastic Marines
Week 2: Plastic Termies
Week 3: Plastic Vehicle, Codex
Week 4: Clampack Watch Captain

Genestealer Cult
Week1: Hybrids
Week2: Limo, Codex
Week3: Clampack Patriarch, Magus and Broodlord re-release
Genestealers included in dex.

Horus Heresy
Week 1: Boxed game.

Apocalypse
Week 1: Plastic Nid Dominatrix
Week 2: Plastic Dias of Destruction. (Including Vect and plastic Court.)
Week 3: Apocalypse Book.

Tyranids
Week1: Codex. Dominatrix added, Genestealers removed.




For the 2nd half of the list other than what I listed I'm a little hazy on the details. Dates, order etc. Common sense would dictate the new C.SM dex dropping with the box set, but I haven't anything other than: "New Assault Squad." I'm a little reluctant to say this is coming at X time if I'm not even 70% sure. It could also just be down to GW's love of tacking Space Marines onto everything.

For what's worth I heard the story of the campaign was along the lines of this:
Spoilers
Imperium losing, badly. Forces are RG, IG, Knights, Admech and Assassins vs Tau. Assassins try to kill Ethereal. RG go after Commander. Deathwatch deployed to turn the tide.

  1. Sounds like voice of the chaos god using all the current rumors... Man this sounds like bs and just combined all current rumors

    1. Super Salty... not buying this list at all.

      sorry Naftka, not that I don't want at least most of this it seems like too much for even GW to fumble through.

    2. Super bs. Lol I can only imagine seeing 3 codex rereleases this short after eachother making many see this as impossible to move forward with a collection at a rate of which they cannot paint. If this happens I personally would change Systems to something with a slower release schedule. Maybe something like DZC, I could keep up with that.

      Delete
    3. Personally I think its a lot of rumor reverb, with embellishments. I dont know anything on the source Aaron, so no need to apologize.

    4. i keep bringing this up with on other posts but never really get a reply its not directly linked to this rumour. but has there been any further sign of epik making a return.

  2. Raven Guard, Imperial Knights, Deathwatch, and AdMech all in a campaign together? God I hope this is true, this would be a dream come true for me in terms of models.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I don't belive this in the slightest. and ehre's why. the rumor refers to apocolypse. it's not gonna happen. following 6th edition apoc, for whatever reason (my guess is the plastic super heavy kits under sold, and GW figured out a lotta people don't wanna pay big bucks for something that can't be used in most games) I doubt we're going to see a new apoc version, there's no reason to do it, everything that was once apocolypse specific is pretty much part of the core rules.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That could be exactly why they're redoing Apoc. Now that Codices are getting Lords of War, you can bring things that have D weapons into the regular 40k game, and even 30k units are usable, they have all the more reason to encourage people to buy EVEN MORE to play Apocalypse with even more models, even more big things, even more crazy formations.

      Delete
    2. Plus the missions and extra rules for said missions were pretty cool. Particularly the Exterminatus rules. I watched an entire platoon of Guard get wiped out when the atmosphere ignited and caused a S10 AP2 hit to every single model on the table. It was hilarious.

      Delete
    3. true and I could see them repackaging Apocolypse as a mission book, perhaps by even doing so they could, if done correctly, actually remove the idea that apoc is somehow "differnt"

    1. Me as well. However, considering that the autarch is a clampack I fear that the jetbikes won't contain bits to create Farseers and warlocks which I find extremely bad.

  5. A limo for the genestealer cults?... I really don't know if I see that happening. Although, if we look at the grey knights' megazoid and the skull laden contraptions of chaos... maybe it isn't so far fetched....

    1. GW is bringing it all back. What once was old is new again. Genestealer cults used to have 'limos', and they were like armored cars. That's what they called them then, that's probably what they'll call them now.

      1st Edition 40k, Warhammer 40,000 Compilation rulebook, the same book that Craftworld Eldar and the Grey Knights were first brought into 40k in.

      Delete
    3. They likely won't be called "limos", as GW can't protect that IP.

      Delete
    4. Yes they can, the question of whether they can trademark something is if the whole marketing phrase is unique, so Genestealer Limo is completely protectable, as much so as onager Dunewalker is

      Delete
    5. They are called Coven Limosines as per the original Genestealer Cult army list in White Dwarf.

      Delete
    6. The Genestealer stuff sounds like total BS. When the 5/6e codex came out Jes Goodwin said they were often asked about them and that it "would never happen"

      Delete
  6. Those Genestealer Cult rumours are spot-on for what people have wanted for soo long! And after the Skitarii i'm feelling pretty good about the possible results (especially if they follow from Jes's hybrid sketches from 1st ed Space Hulk!)

    If they have a way to make Genestealers the truly feared assault unit they once were it will sell like hot-cakes i'm sure.

    A Tyranid Dominatrix has been a bizarre absence from the GW and FW lines so would be excellent to see. And while i've been focussing on my Knights/Mechanicum and my Tyranids have been gathering dust a while and i haven't caught up with all the new releases i still got Deathstorm and would definitely grab a Dominatrix as soon as my savings account recovered from the Genestealer Cult!

    1. As much as it will seem like blasphemy to some, it makes perfect fluff sense to remove Genestealers from the proper Tyranids codex. They are virtually never a part of the main Tyranid force.

      Them getting a new codex will allow GW to put all the new units they've gotten into one book, so Tyranid players don't have to lug 3 or 4 to tournaments.

      Delete
    2. What doesn't make any fluff-sense is Deathwatch Terminators. They simply don't exist!

      Delete
    3. What? Yes they do, the Deathwatch RPG rulebooks have tons of stuff for Deathwatch Terminators.

    5. Hmm, well I'd admit I was unaware of that but I also don't think I'd consider FFG material canon.

      It's well established 40k lore that as they aren't a real chapter per-se the Deathwatch don't posses any tac-dread suits and that they are so rare and highly prized that conventional chapters would never loan them out.

      My understanding is that while each Space Marine owns a personal suit of power armour (which he would take and repaint upon posting to the Deathwatch), terminator armour is held by the Chapter armoury and handed out on an ad-hoc, mission by mission basis to those who have earned the Crux Terminatus.

      Delete
    6. Deathwatch power armour is superior to standard Marine armour. It's more sophisticated. More sensors and harder to detect for enemies.

      Delete
    7. FFG is pretty canon, friend. 40k writers like John French and ADB have worked on a lot of material for them.

      Delete
  7. As for the campaign if it has Skitarii/Mechanicus i'm buying it. If the boxed set doesn't though i may skip that and just get the books.

    1. Different people get different things from their sources. Some people get to see manufacturing lists or sprues, some get to see pages that are printed, some get to see boxes in warehouses, and some just get the info from friends of friends that work in the right factories or companies.

      And some people just make crap up using rehashed rumors.

    4. Man just let it go their probably not getting redone ever again in any meaningful way. Its disappointing but fuck it enjoy the things they are bringing out

    5. Dreamforge are bringing out plastic female warriors. They look really good.

      Delete
    6. Games Workshop is about to miss their opportunity.

      I mean, Raging Heroes is promising solid Sisters (of Eternal Mercy) models in their newest kickstarter, and just looking at how FAST and how hard that's getting funded, it's pretty safe to say people out their want their futuristic battle nuns.

      If it's updated rules you're after however, you may be out of luck. I suggest leaning hard on their massive ally matrix.

      It's sad, but if you want sisters, GW doesn't seem to be supporting them at all. I say buy 3rd party. I know my local FLGS wouldn't mind.

    8. ^ use proxies. then use codex space marines. then kitbash/convert whatever you want. bam instant battle sisters. since they (SOB) are essentially female space marines maybe count them as female space marines, and get access to all SM toys.

  11. Im not looking foward to a new tau codex, i've got a bad feeling that their gona lose a lot of options and become boring. All they need is a change to markerlights so ignores cover isnt so easy for them to get and a change to how kroot work and i this tau fans and opponents would be retty happy

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hands off our Markerlights! Haha I do know where you're coming from though. Having played against Tau in the past and now using them myself I see why people throw their arms up about them.

      Delete
    2. All we want is cover saves against Markerlights. You hit with a markerlight, great, we get a cover save, then you can do your shenanigans with whatever goes through.

      That's all we want.

      Delete
    3. Im a tau player myself and i cant really defend the amount of ignores cover we have it's a bit silly. I honestly think if it becomes a bit rarer for us that alot of people who have a problem with playing against tau would be ok with them overnight. As soon as you can get saves and actually advance up the field then automatically tau's gona feel alot more pressure and it becomes more of a game

      Delete
    4. I don't have time to learn tau again so soon. I would prefer to save my money and spend it on miniatures rather than another codex which feels like a handful of months later to me.

      Delete
    5. There is no word on a new codex, these are suppliment/campaign books.

      Delete
    6. @jula30

      Contain your blasphemy. If you want more of a challenge, play different units. Instead of three Riptides and three squads of pathfinders, take vespids and stealth suits. Mix it up a bit, don't just throw out the baby with the bath water.

      Don't weaken the dex because you can't be creative on your own.

      Delete
    7. The problem isn't the Tau it's 7 edition. If we were back in 5 we would be regularly being carved up in CC.

      Delete
    8. I Zerker up the field at firewarriors. Deep strike also screws with tau players. Great start to just kill them outright. Couple dreadpods from FW and some normal ones and go crazy with an allied detachment of a few squads khorne berzerkers running up the field lol never seen myself so scattered as tau

    7. Yep, it`s more a creative issue. Back in RT Genestealer Cults had a "depression era mobster" theme to them that won't translate easily to present-day 40k.

  15. This looks like massive wishlisting combined with existing rumours for credibility and nothing more.

    Limos? It's not the tongue-in-cheek 90s GW anymore. Codex releases are against GW's current plan as stated at last year's open day so those aren't credible at all.

    Shame.

    1. Totally depends what Codex means. Technically Skitarri, Harlequins, etc. Are admech, eldar/de factions. A Tau Codex could just be referencing a Tau sub-faction book.

    4. Aye, Tony!

      Grey, I see thy point...but it's gotta be fairly unimaginative to say "new Eldar codex incoming" because that implies that it's CE by name and not Harlies or Dark Eldar. I guess that as pre-existing design lines Harlies & DE are quite distinct so that's may be an unfair comparison because anything new Tau-wise could either be TE or a new codex simply because there's no other existing aesthetic to identify...unless it's Kroot but that would be kinda obvious.

      On my part it's safe to say that a new "Tau codex" won't be replacing the current TE book simply because the GW Design Studio said as much to me in person.

  16. HAHAHAA!!!...... erm. no. Not buying it sorry. Wishlisting. Seen this kind of thing so many times before. (anyone remember Pheonix Lord Kyme'doc?)

  17. Multiple sources have already confirmed that GW has no intention of coming out with new editions of ANY of the hardcover books any time soon. Updates will instead be released in the form of dataslates, formations, supplements, etc. Sorry, but we're stuck with the current Tau and Eldar books for a while,,,

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Brandon, this does not mean that the eldar or tau codices will be replaced, just new books will be produced. Eldar could be another craftworld like iyanden, think Saim Hann or Ulthwé. And Tau could mean kroot, vespids, or other allies, or all of them.

      Think a little more outside the box.

  21. This feels like wishlisting, admittedly dark angels probably need a new codex more than most, but games-workshop seems more interested in formations and such and to be fair dark angels could be greatly improved by a formation with buffs to make them more competitive,
    Also there are no dates given, if any of these releases come out the original poster can claim to have been "right" welllll, at some point these armies will get releases :P

  24. There was some new Skitarii info posted up in the most recent thread about the Warhound Titan.

    Basically looks like next weeks releases are the Codex, Datacards and a unit called Sicarians!

    For those who don't know the Sicarians are Ad Mech Assassin Hunters! this would fit with the hints about sneaking and lurking... Possibly those wierd Servitor things???
