Welcome to Librarium Online!
Do you believe 5th edition is coming out in 2008?
When life gives you anything, charge it with Genestealers.
Alarm clock? Genestealers.
Your boss? Genestealers.
The rednecks that cut in front of me at Wal-mart like I didn't have anything better to do than stand in line? Genestealers.
I find the idea of that highly dubious. Not without an updated Dark Eldar codex, at any rate (and an updated Necron codex would be expected as well, as leaving armies with second and third edition codexes for 5th edition's start would be quit... irksome. It's bad enough Orks had to wait as long as they did for an update).
I couldn't see GW putting out another rulebook very soon. They still have Dark Eldar, Imperial Guard, Necrons, Space Wolf, Orks (who are comming out very soon), the Inquisition (Daemonhunters, Witchhunters, Alienhunters) and the Daemons codex's to be updated to the 4th edition rules.
If, by some strange turn of events GW did go 5th edition next year, I think I would stop playing, at least until 6th edition came out (which, if all this happens could be by 2011 ) because I'm not interested in buying a new rulebook and a host of new codecies.
Maybe at Christmas 2008. Wouldn't expect it any time in the next 6 months though.
Needless to say I probably can't tell you what it says happens if you hit someone in the groin with a powerfist here on LO.
It will come when it comes. I'm tipping mid next year.
@chosen40k: your Poll needs a close date. I recommend you edit it. Thanks.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
Most posts that start 'Not to be a jerk...' usually mean to be a jerk, but i really dont mean to be, i just want to simply inform you guys...
There is already a post about this issue, i guess yours is a bit different, as it is a poll, but really the same discussion has been running in circles already, on the same subject.
EDIT: I removed The attempted funny part. I put it here to try and lighten the tone of my post, since i dont want to come off as a jerk and get bad rep, i usually like to turn posts like this into a bit of a funny rant as to not make myself seem like a jerk, as said just now.... The funny bit has been removed, but i was just trying to be friendly!
I don't believe it in the least. It's FAR too early to do so, and not even GW are that stupid.
I'd say it will come out 2010, 2011 (the year we host the RWC, that could be a good year). This is something too big for me believe in until GW at least hinted about it.
like everyone else pointed out...
although the guy (can't remember his/her name), does state that this came from a very reliable source quite possibly means that it could be possible for GW to make 5th
but, it still doesn't make much sense in making it now...
i think not, too soon and not really needed, but hey, they proved me wrong with the tau codex, so what do i know?!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
