Hey all! Sooo... which boc models aren't probable to get a do-over when the next book comes out? Is it a safe bet to buy the beast herd? Thanks!

Well I think it's a safe bet that they will have the beast herds, it is possible that they would come out with some new minis. The DE, CW, and Lizards have all gotten new minis for some of the core units. The question is, if you're looking to build a BoC army, are you willing to wait potentially 12 months to start.
(WH40K) Dark Eldar - (12,000pts) Sisters of Battle - (5000pts) Dark Angels -(3500pts) (WHFB) Dark Elves - (10,000pts) Beastmen - (5000pts) Empire - (3000pts) Wood Elves - (1500pts)
Beast Herds should stay the same model wise, but ruleswise I think they'll get Mark of Chaos Undivided as standard. They badly need that.
Minotaurs models should change, I hear they're bringing out a Doombull model and I think bray Shamans are getting done up (thank God).

I think it's mostly just a case of looking at 1) What came with the last release and 2) What is currently metal. I'm thinking they'll keep the current Beast Herd models unless they get a dramatic change in weapon options (although bitz like the Warriors of Chaos ones from the online store could fix that), Warhounds should be fine as they just got updated with Warriors of Chaos and their Beastlord models should stay pretty much the same, maybe a new one or two. I'd say the Chariot has a good chance of staying because it fits well with the style of the Beast Herd. Other than that, I'd predict Bestigors getting a platic box of 10, maybe a 5 Centigors plastic box, and new Dragon Ogres and Minotaurs. And of course the AWFUL Bray Shaman models should be replaced with new blisters.
Beast Herds are very likely not to get re-done (rumours wise). Everything else pretty much will be, over time atleast.
New plastic Heroes, Bestigor, Minos and D-Ogres to come at the time of the new book release.
Most of the core probably will end up in plastic. So bestigors and centis(rumoured to become fast cav and core). The current centis are however very nice models so maybe not.
Otherwise phoenix pretty much summed it up. We can also look forward to a plastic Gorgon(or metal if we are unlucky) and possibly a centi hero.
The current herds wont be redone, and seriously do we really want them to? The models we got now are awesome IMO.

Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

Surly they might. Not even God knows what GW will do, hell they might even make a balanced and competitive army book but that is even more unlikely.
