— Article by Adam Troke
Gather your tanks and ready your lascannons – in June the pages of White Dwarf magazine and the Games Workshop website join forces to bring you a whole new expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Spearhead.
Spearhead is a new way to play Warhammer 40,000 that enables you to unleash exciting tank battles and daring breakthrough missions on the tabletop, bringing the full mechanised fury of the 41st Millennium to bear in your games. June's White Dwarf will contain the main part of the supplement, including new rules, missions and plenty of inspirational hobby advice. Alongside this, the Games Workshop website will feature additional material exclusively for registered members, such as details of how to assemble your Spearhead formations along with even more painting, modelling and collecting tips.
As if a whole new Expansion wasn't exciting enough, it's going to be accompanied by a range of new miniatures including some stunning new plastic kits – more details of these kits, and the Spearhead Expansion, will follow in White Dwarf and here on the Games Workshop website.
A word of advice, however – because it contains a new Expansion, June's White Dwarf promises to be very popular. If you're not already a subscriber now's probably a very good time to correct that, and to register on the Games Workshop website to hear all the news first.
old news I'm afraid :p
Fortes Fortuna Adiuvat
Found this over on Heresy-online
Also just seen that GW's website has a section under the 40k expansions section titled "SPEARHEAD." nothing is posted in it, but I'm sure that will change soon enough

Bwahah, if Eldar gets the Nightspinner, I actually called that one.
Awesome! Long range eldar goodness.
great more tanks
Imperial guard are getting more Leman Russ variants and possibly the medusa/collosus. Eldar are indeed getting the Nightspinner and the Scorpion.

WHoo hold on there, the scorpion as in the Forgeworld Super Heavy? Where are you getting thins information from? Cause that would just be way too cool.
The fire prism is on its way as GW have noticed its popularity amongst Eldar players. The fire prism/night spinner I believe is to be released with the Spearhead book. The Scorpion/Cobra will come later on in the year.
What GW are trying to do is improve the sales of the Eldar back to the level they had during the second edition when they were one of the if not the most popular army in 40K.
The popularity of the new plastic kits will determine just how much love the Eldar get in the next two years and how soon they will get a new codex.
And to be honest being the complete Tread Head that I am (did I say that I love tanks?) I am looking forward to this release as well.

BoLS is saying its going to be a prism/night spinner kit, plastic heavy weapon weapon platforms, and a scorpion kit. I personally dont believe the scorpion rumor. But unless they make the night spinner fast attack, Im not sure why they are bothering. its forgeworld rules are garbage. They are going to have to do something to make it alot better.
Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
