Does anyone know if there will be a new edition of skaven coming out any time soon or are they going to stay the way they are for a while yet.
Personally I dont know, but in my opinion i wouldn't say they are top-of-the-list, the skaven army book is very strong, I believe its dark elves and chaos? next... Does anyone know the most recent update for army re-releases?
Vefador's Bloody fist
I would imagine it would be Skaven & Bretonnia after Chaos and Dark Elves. They haven't be redone in a while.
I haven't heard any rumors about Skaven at all, but it would be nice to see them redone perhaps with some of the back of the book clan specific army options available. Being able to use an Eshin or Skryre Lord would be pretty cool. with the recent power creep of army books I also wouldn't be completely shocked to see the Vermin Lord return.
From what I've heard:
DEs (the order I'm not sure of though, HoC/DE could come first)
Skaven (as above)
This information I got from a WHFB rumours thread, but I'm likely wrong. Bretts/Beasties won't be out for a while yet
There are rumors too that lizardmen could be the army after dark elves.
Armies: Dark Eldar, Ogre Kingdoms, Beasts of Chaos, Orcs & Goblins, Warriors of Chaos
Past Armies: Dwarfs, Mortal Chaos, Imperial Guard, Space Marine
Most of what we know is just conjecture after the Daemons and Dark Elves, but I think Skaven will be one of the next Army Books to be redone after them, along with the rest of Chaos. Most people seem to think that it's time Skaven got a new book, and a lot of the remaining 6th ed books are still fairly recent and/or work well, like the Tomb Kings, Lizardmen, Wood Elves and Bretonnians, so those armies will probably have a while to wait.
My best guess would be a Skaven release perhaps this time next year, or maybe next summer.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.
