Was chatting to a staff member in my local GW earlier today, he can be pretty loose tongued about things cause he's quite new, and knows that I play Dark Eldar. We were happily chatting about my DE army and the fact that I was looking to start a necron army when he asked me if I knew much about the release schedule for the next 6 months or so. I told him that I'd heard about planetstrike and was a little hazy after then, at which point he revealed that the 2 armies after planetstrike are:
He wasn't sure what order they're coming in, but assured me that these two are definitely on the list of being done very soon, probably by christmas.
Obviously, this is only a staff member talking, so may not be true (whether intentional or not), but I thought I'd let the rest of you all judge that for yourselves.
*salt to taste*
it has been pretty much confirmed that SW is coming at the end of this year or earlier.
May the "Nurgley Goodness" protect you!
Its Imperial Guard, then Planet Strike, then Skaven, then Space Wolves for this year.
Next year will see Beasts of Chaos released in the second quarter of 2010. Dark Eldar are due for the third or fourth quarter of 2010 the details are still being decided on at the moment. Necrons are still under development as we speak.
Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.
ok man hate to be a kill joy i dont know if quotes like these happen alot on this site but just a warning that if you do say things like this please keep all names completely annonymus because if GW HQ finds out these people can lose their jobs. Dont worry im not inclined nor am i going to tell anyone about this.
besides that fact im hangin out for a new DE codex too cant wait for it as there have been alot of rules updated in the current rulebook.
I've heard its going Necrons then either Dark Eldar or Space wolves, or Necrons, space wolves, Beasts THEN Dark Eldar i mean COME ON dark eldar havent had an update since 2003 and even then it was half arsed bloody redoing the old codex using new pics and a few more wargear items and points costs being adjusted
Yeah, don't worry, I won't mention Dave's name- oh wait!
But seriously, I am making sure that I remain as anonymous as I can with these rumours, I have some good staff friends and don't want them to get sacked.
JvK, I know the rumoured release schedule, I was just thrwing this one I heard out there as possible new info.
I don't think this guy would deliberately try to lie to me, but as I said, its still a little speculative at the moment.
OK then so Dave is now the generic name HAHAHA
sorry i didnt mean any offence by it just makin sure.
i think that the Sisters of Battle needs to be a seperate army again that should be a new release i reckon
You do know GW spreads disinformation, right? Also they know that firing someone for saying something would DIRECTLY CONFIRM what that person had said, so they would have to wait until after the release dates.
Not to mention the fact that GW wants its staff members to be on good terms with the local players and that will entail them spreading information.
Also I believe this information was also released by GW.
So I would doubt your staff friend is in any real trouble over this, and even if GW found out they would probably not hold it against him further than a write up.

Staffers and asst managers generally don't get much additional info comapred to the rest of us regarding longer term release scehdules, and that which they do get is pretty much public domain anyway. I can confirm this as I used to frequent GW Bath in my youth, and hell, we got tasters of the new edition of Warhammer (6th) nearly 6 months before it was released, but I remember at the time that it was pretty common knowledge.
And I even PAINTED the store Dark Elf army about 2-3 months before release, and again, we all knew they were coming for a long time before then.

Right, this is it, i'm putting it in my Sig.
Edit: there we go! So kids, remember: Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forgot about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
