Over the last few months we have quite a bit of information regarding the new edition that is rumored to be coming this year approximately in May. I noticed that in the last article, several questions were coming up without answers, that had been mentioned before as rumors. This means that it was time to do a quick 9th Edition rumor compilation.
Here it is. Remember that these are all rumors. There has been no official mention of a new edition for Warhammer Fantasy coming this year.
