Fortifications as they currently stand, have had very few updates since the onset of 6th edition, only seeing a couple minor box set releases at the time that Apocalypse came out. With that, it stands that the arena is wide open for a book or supplement release to expand 6th edition.

Miss something this week? Or not sure. Faeit's rumor tarot takes a look at this weeks rumors and sometimes important news, so that we can catch a glimpse of the future and what is going to happen in our hobby. 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 may be revealed.

While this weeks rumors have been light, this weeks rumor of a fortification supplement was first spoke of back in June of this year. So it does sound like something is in the works, and now finally in playtesting. So 6 months out for this release? Most likely.

Here is a link to the previous rumor 6 months back that was discussing this supplement.

Expect a lot more racially specific fortifications as well as more "imperial/generic" stuff in 2014 Q2.

Now this week we get a new rumor speaking of the supplement with new xenos upgrades and the additions of new fortifications.

there's a supplement that's divided by race with new fortifications and also new racial upgrades to specific fortifications.

For example the aegis defense line is imperial, but there'll be a tau version with a rail cannon instead of Icarus lascannon (not actual rules, just an example).

Currently it's being playtested as requiring a detachment of the race to upgrade the fortification, but that might change (everyone's been using imperial stuff for a long time now).

Just to be clear, the base of the fortification such as bastion, aegis, fortress, etc will all be the same, just the upgrades/guns that will be racially specific.

In so far as models, expect only imperial versions, and a modeling section on converting building racially inspired fortifications.

The book will have the rules for all the currently released fortifications plus a couple new ones (with models) and then as mentioned rules for racial upgrades.

Even earlier in the week, we also had this little snippet, which was a little buried under the discussions of Christmas Bundles being announced. I have been trying to find out more details on what new fortifications could come, but so far we have only stickmonkey's bit here.

I’d heard there were other kits in the Wall of Martyrs line due too.  A Tank firepoint and another command bunker if I recall correctly.

No Rumors Beyond this Point
I am rating what I personally think of the rumors (not the source). This is based off of behind the scenes knowledge, what different sources are saying, and general logic and guesswork. It goes like this

5 Stars. If its got a 5 star rating, I personally have probably seen the release information. (think Natfka has seen this stuff personally)

4 Stars is a very reliable rumor, and comes from someone I generally know to be in a good place, or the rumors match up well. These are not facts!, These are still rumors, and even great sources can have some information wrong on occasion. (think hastings-like, or close to that)

3 Stars, is a decent rumor. Should be looked at with some truth in it. An average rumor (most will fall here). Rumor based off of real information, discussion, or we do not know where it falls. (Like I said, most will fall here, and this is the baseline.)

2 stars. Most likely speculation, but sound OK. Every once in a while these have something (think Natfka doesn't really think this is happening, but ya never know)

1 Star. Way out in left field, and I feel that these are probably just wild speculation or made up. (think whoa, where the hell did this come from, and generally posted up because its fun, or Natfka was bored)
