Got this in my inbox yesterday and noticed still no one has posted it so I though I should share, hoping its not a double post.
In January 2011, following the epic release of The Island of Blood, the Skaven will be receiving reinforcements, including new models - visit the website tomorrow for more information from the Studio. And with these new additions gathering on the horizon, there is no better time to start up or expand your very own Skaven army. Here are some essential items to prepare for war:
I'm sure we will get some hints in a matter of hours but I wanted to see what everyone though. I guess first, wow, that's a surprise. Sorry necrons your getting pushed back again, but then again, hello Hell Pit Abomination!
Yeah, I am kinda suprised about the Lack of posts about this on all the news sites. I figured it would get more attention due to it throwing all the previous rumor schedules to hell.
Got to say im getting a little fed up of GWs planned relases of new models for "hot" selling armies and neglecting revamps to bring others into line. Now im sure some people are going to say that it only make financial sense from a business point of view, but for me its realy draining the fun out of the game.
Alot of the models being redone certainly needed a bit of work, i.e. white lions most recently, but surely theres a better opertunity to release the models like a nation wide campainge (like storm of chaos/nemesis crown). the recent high elves is an exception in that they have come in tandum with the 8th ed box set, but skaven in january... just strikes me that skaven have done better than expected so someone high up has said "drop everything. pump out some models for skaven asap".
I would think that if it wasnt for these emergancy sales projects that armies like TKs and ogres would be out within the next few months as well as Necrons and GKs following sharply on from Dark Eldar. Considering how long these models have meant to have been finished and ready to go it makes you wounder how long before you actualy see these releases.
Yes a bit of a sceptical rant but skaven...really...how old is thier line again? a year if that.
Anyway rant over.
i agree. i cant help but laugh however at the fact that everyone was all like
' yay new gray knights in january'
'no its not its new necrons'
BAM... skaven second wave.
But I second that, I don't mind them releasing a second wave, it needs to happen, though I wish they would release multiple second waves at one rather then making it a focal point. Though I figure they are doing this to suck the money out off all the kids who's parents bought them IoB for Christmas along with giftcards, and what 12 year old can resist a Hell Pit Abomination?
I seriously hope they make the feb/march release a good one because this is way to much Skaven. Skaven in March, Skaven June with Island of blood, Skaven in Oct with the special characters, and Skaven in Jan with a second wave.
But hey at least Dark Eldar got an update.
Too be honest, I don't think this has such a big effect on the currently rumoured release schedule. I mean, its a second wave, and so something else can be fitten in with it no problem. However, it can only be 40K related, as two releases of the same game is not the way they do business.

i dont know that much about skaven as i only collect them for a 40k conversion so i dont know, is the hell pit abomination a unique charachter or is there more than one. cus if its unique it will be metal but if not it may be plastic. also i forsee plastic globadiers, new rat ogres (the old ones look naff compared to island of blood), possibly new gutter runners and or plague monks.
If that is true then it's a terrible decision. Players saw the new stormvermin/doomwheel and bought it, unless the new models are a million times better (which is hard as the current models are good) then barely anyone will buy them. Makes much more sense to re-do some of the Eshin and Moulder models and do some models which have no representation at the moment.
Hence my calling of Bulls***. Where did you get this information?
