I'm thinking about returning to Warhammer Fantasy Battles after a 10 year lay off. I've been searching around eBay for the latest edition of the rules and I see that 7th edition is here, but I have only seen 6th edition army books for the High Elves (the army I still have minis for). Has GW started releasing 7th edition army books? Are they planning too? Is there a release schedule available? Are they already available and I'm not looking hard enough on eBay? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
The 6th edition HE book is the current one. Check the rumor section for info on upcoming books, I believe the HW are going to be re-released within the year or so.

They are releasing army books for 7th ed, but since 7th ed has only arrived more recently ( I believe it was last September), only a couple of armies have been updated.
Orcs & Goblins and Empire both have 7th ed books.
Others (Dwarfs and Wood Elves I think) have books which were written 'with 7th ed in mind'. They were writtten towards the end of 6th ed with thought to how they would fit with the new ruleset.
Some have solid/fairly new armybooks that won't be redone for a while (Lizardmen, Ogres, Bretonnia, both Chaos, Tomb Kings)
And finally the old/badly-need-an-update books that will be redone (fairly) soon are High Elves, Vampire Counts, Dark Elves and Skaven (I believe).
The next two books to be redone are High Elves and Vampire Counts, but it could be a while before the next fantasy release with GW concentrating on the summer campaign.
I think I got all the books into the right categories up there.
