Admech, 30k, Assassins, and Sisters of Battle........ You Don't Want to Miss This.

This is the motherload of information tonight. There is a lot of good news here, as well as some rather sad news for Sister's of Battle. It seems that Sister's of Battle (adeptus Sororitas) may not be on the list of things coming this year.

This is a compilation of the latest rumors going on right now as we speak!

I want to thank Drbored for compiling a lot of this. We will following any further developments on these rumors. Notice the Admech....... The Skitarii are coming.

Please remember that these are all rumors. Hastings has always been very solid, and a great resource for the what is coming in the future.

Right guys there are several separate rumours that folks are getting mixed 
up. So I'll at least split it up a little for you. THIS IS NOT RELEASE 
ORDER, just to help separate the rumours. IT ALSO ISN'T A FULL LIST OF THIS 
YEARS 40K RELEASES, in fact some of these may be early next year. NONE OF 

Admech Codex & models (full release)
***** Codex & Models (Harlequin sized release)
***** Codex & Models (Harlequin sized release)
***** Standalone Boxed "historical game" models from which will form part 
of "a full range" (notice I didn't say existing range )
***** Standalone Boxed Game models from which will form part of an existing 

I haven't heard anything about mark 9 armour so don't associate it with any 
of the above.

Hastings and Lords of War Gaming also said Sisters of Battle will not be
coming out this year at all, LoWG on their Facebook and Hastings on Warseer.

Question by drbored on Warseer (hastings response is afterwards)
Sad about Sisters, but let's work on the rest of these.
When you say 'Harlequin-sized release' you mean in terms of number of kits?
So it COULD be a main codex (like Space Marines or whatevs) getting about
as many models as the Harlequins got, or are we talking about smaller
forces like the Militarum Tempestus and Harlequin-style releases with new

Also I think it's pretty clear that the 'full range' is going to become
GW's plastic 30k stuff, which means the boxed 'historical game' is going to
be Horus Heresy based, or am I just off the mark?

75hastings69 Response
I mean Harlequin sized as in number of kits, i.e. a few characters, a 
troops kit, a larger kit and a transport. Or thereabouts One kind of has a 
main codex, kind of, and it's been mentioned on this very thread. The other 
has also been mentioned on another thread, the one that got moved for not 
having any news or rumours in.... even though it actually contained quite a 
bit. In fact I suppose you might say the 2nd has a main codex too (kind of)

You sir are on the mark

It's HH as stated above. 

I think there's a misunderstanding here. BOTH new standalone games will have their model contents released. The first being HH, will see models released as part of the 30k range. The 2nd boxed game models will be released as part of 40k range, part that is currently only available in finecast and not deathwatch before anyone says it again.

second 'box game' is based on Officio Assasinorum.
via Hastings
rearrange this:-


I'm honestly really hoping that Chaos Space Marines gets some attention. Let's get some properly sized Plague Marines, updated Khorne Berzerkers, and Noise Marines and Thousand Sons that aren't half Finecast, kthxbai

Also thanks 75hastings, this is awesome stuff and makes me pretty excited for the future!
Oh they will

Hastings Response
But not as part of the stuff in this thread, well unless you count the bad SM as CSM? (if you know what I mean)

I have heard that there might be a plastic GD, plastic daemons, and plastic CSM kit for a certain god at some point later this year (and no it's not Khorne!)

Hastings Wrapping things up
So from the list we have:-
Admech Codex & models (full release)
**** Codex & models (Harelquin sized release already mentioned on thread)
**** Codex & models (Harelquin sized release already mentioned on thread)
HH Standalone box game, on sale for a few months, then models become part of 30k range.

Assassins Standalone box game, on sale for a few months, then models become part of the 40k range.

Not Arbites, Not CSM in any form, subtract from those listed. Although I did say that DA might get an update AND that there may be a 40k release of a GD, Deamons and CSM for a god that isn't Khorne at some time later in the year.

Genestealer Cult

Then separately DA & Tzeentch type stuff. Oh but don't rule out the missing GDs etc. they're all done

Two are due out this year (greater daemons) AFAIK, and we've seen pics of 1 

I will just reiterate I DO NOT KNOW THE TIMEFRAME of these releases, I've been out of the loop for some time. I can only assume that Lords of Wargaming have the Apr/May Admech correct (I'd heard April) but I've no idea of the schedule or indeed order of the other stuff.

I guess Patriarch, Magus, Hybrids, and Limo might just about make that a Harlequin sized release?

Totally (well not totally actually) unrelated I did hear that actual CODEXes? (CODices?) god know s the plural, might soon be a thing of the past. with all rules being in box leaflets. Some might even contain 2 sets of rules, one for 40k and one for 30k  But I'm not 100% on this.

via Harry on Warseer (trying to clear up the Mark 9 armour debate that keeps coming back)
I think I can clear this one up.
It would seem duffybear heard a rumour about new space marines. He naturally assumed these were what came next .... mark 9
However it did not occur to him that what his rumour was about was what came before ..... 

I think these rumours ARE part of the same thing.

I think Duffy's rumours are about the new space marines for THIS .... for 30K
So that would make it not mark 9 but something like Mark 3 / Mark 4 ? armour. (Or whatever armour it was 30K ...someone will have to help me out with that)

The armour is a simpler, earlier version of the power armour we all know and love.
It looks a bit like something Tony Stark might have knocked up in the desert.
