Such a simple thing, a word, a command, and billions died. Their screams as they died pierced the thin veil that surrounds me, and drowned out my own thoughts for days. Their blood, my blood, their tears my own. Their apocalypse has come and gone, and a world has been destroyed for what I saw it become.
The Apocalypse supplement has come and gone, and with it, people world wide are playing massive games, that I am sure are still going. Beyond such massive wars, new horizons, new releases, are coming. Lets leave apocalypse behind (its yesterday's rumors) and have a look at the what happened this week, and of course...... its time for some breaking news.
Each week, Faeit's Rumor Tarot will take a look at what rumors came up among the myriad of games that were covered here on Faeit 212. On occasion I will be breaking any weekend developments that were discovered or revealed, so keep a watch out, for on the Faeit's Tarot, you never know what secrets there may be.
Breaking Rumors: Black Templar
One thing that is sure to strike up some hype, is that I have some rumors on the Black Templar, that they are indeed on the way. This is the first I have heard of it, and it breaks the mold of our release order that we have been following and at first glance will appear to be out of place. So when you read this, please take into consideration that I have much more coming regarding the release schedule and how its evolved this week.

Now apocalypse is released there are 2 major upcoming armies
-Orks (around October)
-Black Templar (around December)
This is to represent the third war for armageddon
Now the rumor says around these months. There is a lot of room there, as it could mean pre-orders, or release dates. December is always an odd month out. The key here is that releases could be featured around famous battles and adversarial armies. This could tie in future Warzone (apocalypse) releases, and codex supplements to each other. Could Games Workshop be designing their releases to fit with the Warhammer 40k background? (my mind was just blown)
Black Legion Codex Supplement

Black Legion are Coming!
So, I've heard from a little birdy that Black Legion will be getting the next supplement. No idea if that will be August or not though, seeing as August is a WFB month.
Farsight Enclave Codex Supplement
This is something I hope does not become a trend, as I absolutely love the new codex supplements, but do not like to have my primary copy as digital. The digital version of this book is to be released in 6 days on the 20th, but its hardcover is being pushed out much longer than the week or two we saw with the Iyanden supplement. Here is what we heard this week from multiple and separate sources about the hardcover version of this book.

I got the info today, that a physical copy of the Farsight book will be released, but not until october 2013! The digital version will go on sale July 20th as ibook and ebook (pre order from the 13th).

For the hardcopy of the Farsight, we will be waiting till October.
So what is in the new supplement. A sample was released onto ibooks, and from it we saw a great collection of pics and background information. Just in case you missed it, here is a link to see what you missed.
Now, pulling out what I have read from these released samples, check out the Seismic Fibrillator Node that was mentioned.
The Way of War
via GW sample pages for the new Farsight Enclaves codex supplement
A Seismic Fibrillator Node can potentially earn you another Shooting phase if used in the early game, and by leaving yourself room to manoeuvre, you can draw out the shooting game until your opponent's army is ready to be broken in a single turn.
