There is some more information coming about the rumored 9th edition Warhammer Fantasy release coming later early to mid 2015. Some of the highlights include a release time frame of May, with a starter in June. Also no allied matrix like 40k, but instead possible faction lists. (perhaps something like from the End Times).
Please remember that these are rumors. If you had missed Steve the Warboss's previous comments about a new edition for Warhammer Fantasy, here is a link. http://natfka.blogspot.com/2014/11/warhammer-fantasy-9th-edition-rumors.html
