Welcome to Librarium Online!
Stickmonkey over on Warseer has been kind enough to collate some of the existing rumours regarding these two races into one place and then add one or two snippets himself. Which is rather nice of him. I have added a little of what I know (In bold) but all kudos goes to Stickmonkey for this one.

Ahh yes, I saw this on Warseer the other night too. I must say I was a little bit disappointed with the thought that Necrons could be later than previously rumoured, but then they were always too far away to have an arrival date set in stone.
I thought there was talk of only 1 extra C'tan, but then I could have misread it back then or just be misled by other less informed posters. If it is both I'll be very interested in how they handle it, I'll be looking forward to any futher thoughts or rumours you have JvK. Oh and thanks for the neat picture in the other thread, finally got to see them when I left work.
It's always fun to get some new rumors. A couple things stuck out to me (probably because I play Space Wolves):
A Tau vehicle with an Assault Ramp? Awesome! Currently, we have to go to them, now they're coming to us!
Also, I'd be very surprised if (and interested in how) the void dragon shows up, if he does. He's supposed to be chained underneath Mars. Sure, he's probably running some Xanatos gambit (like every other thing in the galaxy), but I doubt his capacity to directly influence events.
Space Marines: Bringing Swords to Gunfights since 30k. And winning.
"Why is there a big red button on the bridge that says 'Exterminatus?'" "Why wouldn't we have one of those? I love that thing."
I HIGHLY doubt the release date of January 2011 for Necrons is going to change in release order, the only push I could see would be 1-2 months, so expect a release by March at the LATEST.
In fairness, Grey Knights was a minor release (to my knowledge) since they only have so-many units to choose from. I mean, they are the best of the best and it's hard to make an army or attack force using all the "best" units.
It's like having a battle force that only fields Immortals, or only Flayed One's.
**Double post sorry**

Some interesting rumours from the Tau side of things. Probably interesting for the Necron people too, I suppose! (I just don't happen to be one of them...)
Possible new suits and the chance of having a commander slip in to something more experimental does sound like fun. Thanks for the rumours, Jarad van Kell and Stickmonkey!
It would be interesting to see one of the other C'tan make it into the Necron release, however I can't see it happening, I'm not sure about the Outsiders status fluff wise, but if the Void Dragon got out the Imperium would be crippled. Don't forget he was imprisoned on Mars by the Emperor, and not just sleeping like the Nightbringer an Deceiver were.
I think we'd have heard more about them if they were for a January release and tbh I'm putting all my hopes on Codex Inquisition being released around that time anyway.

I am the Hammer...
I think you are all forgetting that GW can change their fluff at any point, it happens a lot actually, and if that means making the Void Dragon playable without the galaxy coming to an end I think they'll do it.
Next year will most likely be a 40k style year since this year was pretty barren for them. Expect two releases (Spring/summer then fall). Wouldn't be hard, then they can sprinkle various things between them for Fantasy.
I might start Tau instead in preparation, nobody plays them here. Rumors need to circulate of Macross style suits, I want an XV that can change into a jet.
