Welcome to Librarium Online!
The latest rumoured GW 40k/WFB schedule :
2nd wave Orks
Plastic Gretchin, Stormboys, Nobz, plastic Battlewagon.
Plastic Stegadon to be availiable as a rare, special and mount option. Up to nine said to fieldable in one list. New kroxigors.
Stompa and one or more Baneblade variants (Stormlord and/or Shadowsword, possibly others).
Plastic Stormtroopers, Valkyrie, Russ variants, more.
2nd Wave Daemons
Plastic Daemon Prince, new Seekers, rest of the named Daemons, possibly generic daemons and a Battleforce
New range by Jes Goodwin, Codex by Phil Kelley. End of the year, possibly bumped even later to make sure the army is done correctly.
Kudos to Harry over at Warseer
Has there been any solid news about a new space wolf codex? Itll be good to see the IG get some loving. Sad about Dark eldar being left till the end of the year though. Im sure theres many people waiting for that one.
Space Wolves (Under Construction) | Circle of Orboros (Under Construction)
Well I was standing at the desk with the Warhammer Chaos information on the boards behind as well as the new army book on the table, hoping around from one foot to the other trying to glimpse the warhammer book, whilst digesting the new SM Codex at the same time.
This was around the time when the statues were being handed out, a young lad approached Phil Kelly for a sig and asked about the Wolves.
Phil Kelly said he would be doing them himself, they will not be following (and quote) that "ancient and dusty book" (the codex) and will be more the stand aside chapter that "follow their heart, are honour bound and loyal" ... he said that he was working on them at the early stages now...
When I askeed about the potential release he said, well it's early days, and it can take up to 6 months before they are ready to go, (quote) But I will be talking about them ALOT at next years GD (end quote) ... I said so end of next year and he said, "pretty much"
So I had to ask the burning question "will you be re doing the characters and models" and he said "Yes, definately" but he would not confirm which and tbh I did not push him...
I spoke with him on this and this is 1st hand information, I'm excited because added that the models "will blow your mind away"....
And a question: Anybody hear anything about new Marine stuff coming out? Like the Ironclad Dread and hopefully a Razorback with all the weapons options??
As far as DE are concerned it has gotten to the point that the delay doesn't matter, it is more about getting them done right.In a way it disheartens me that GW have done a good job of clamping down on leaks, I would have a bit more faith in "next year" if we had some leaked stuff to provide support to this claim.
As far as the SW Codex rumors I have heard say in December 08 or January 09... And for the models I saw one or two of the new Wolves some time back in BoLS...
Too bad for DE players... they have to wait another year!
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
As a DE player I have to admit I'm getting sick of the wait and am about to hang up my raiders.
Codex creep seems to be getting closer and closer to unbearable for our codex that while still powerful just doesn't have the versatility especially when it comes to being able to defeat both horde and MEQ lists reliably. As time goes on I find more and more games going down to the absolute wire and having to fly it out of danger by the seat of my pants while trying to have some models left on the board at the end of a game to claim a non-loss result.
I'm still avoiding going out with what I would term overpowered lists but it is getting closer to the date...
Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
Apocalypse with more Baneblades... that’s cool. Maybe I can hold out and avoid a Marine army after all.
However, [RANT] if they're gonna start the whole second wave thing with the plan of giving us more models, with no new content... that's lame. Don't get me wrong, I love checking out shiny new hotness, even when its not an army I play, but if its just figs with no game related meat I can mentally pick apart... that’s weak! January is going to be a hollow month for me. And as a Dark Elf player, if they are going to be releasing a second wave of new figs in a years time, that sux! I can't add any chariots to my army, because they might be releasing new ones in nine months. That's like hearing your prom date say "Sorry, only second base tonight, you might actually score if you take me out next prom!" It’s a tease and a let down! And how cheezed am I gonna be if I finish up my Executioners just in time to see newer, cooler ones released. GAH!!!! [/RANT]
Yeah... Baneblades... cool...
