Welcome to Librarium Online!
This is no rumour, but its an educated guess that Beastmen will follow Lizardmen...
My theory is based on this:
Daemons released. (chaos)
Dark Elves released. (non chaos)
Warriors released. (chaos)
Lizardmen soon to be released. (non chaos)
Beastmen released...? (chaos)
I'd think GW would be doing this deliberately to avoid "flooding the market" with Chaos armies.
Since chaos was recently splintered, the rule book for beasts is a mess, unless you go online and read up. Even so they're VERY low on magic items & banners, and half the rule book no longer makes any sense.
Their main block infantry unit in bestigors is an all metal unit, and is just begging for the GW 10 man plastic box release.
Anyone got any proper rumours to add to Beasts being next after Lizardmen? They seem the logical choice, and GW should be able to make some good coin from new model sculpts & plastics.
Actually you have that last part wrong. Skaven are getting done after Lizardmen, and Beasts of Chaos are after Skaven.
Edit: Speaking of proper rumours, there aren't as many out there. Most of it all is just speculation.

Gahhh, I wish they'd bump Skaven to before Lizzies
I wish they'd make the skaven more ratty, less doggy. Other than that i'm fine with the time scale, skaven is older than BoC and although BoC is chopped liver right now, they just gotta wait!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
