Welcome to Librarium Online!
Not sure if this is old news, but here goes.
I was talking to a Melbourne GW staff member, and he was "pretty sure" (never give too much away...) GW are working on 4 army books right now, all at the same time. They were: High elves, Vampire counts, Dark elves and Skaven.
Obviously, they'll release them all on different dates, but for those itching for these particular books, they should be just around the corner (although, a GW corner is much longer then the average....)
Sounds pretty good, dark elves ,skaven , vamp counts definatly deserve it.
What melbourne GW did u go to ?

Melbourne central. Used to anyway, now i just club at ringwood
yeah, dark elves need to be buffed up, skaven need to be nerfed down a lot and VC need some little change.
If Dark Elves need anything it isnt buffed up.
They need new models 7 point spearmen annoy the christ out of me, for an Empire Spear men you add 2 more points and you have got a DE who is WS4 and BS4. and a Zombie is 6pts? Dont make me laugh
High Elves Need it more than anyone I think and let me reassure you Im not a High Elf fan, their list is terrible, 10 pt spearmen? Terrible models, Outdated Codex, Intrigue at the Court, Crap Great Eagle Models... the list goes on, I think that high elves should be next, then VC's, then balance Skaven,
Does any one know if there going to remake chaos dwarfs at or just let them fade away
i never trust anything gw-staff says about upcoming releases, they usually don't know whitch army is coming next... check warseer if u want RELIABLE info
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
BS is no good to a spearmen, so theres no point mentioning that. Zombies are unbreakable and belong to a TOTALY different army (they do explain the points for undead in the GW website...)
So al they have is ws4, i5, m5. For Spearmen, its worth around 2 points a model.
The biggest drama is the DE ELITE units. Black guard get no use, cauldron of blood sees no use, Hydras need to be srubburn, or something, CoK's needs points reduction or beefing.
the next 3 will be high elves, skellies and chaos, chaos i know has lots of new plastic coming out for the release

You have witch elves who are in desperate need of a 6+ward withought the cauldron.(a cauldron that no one uses) We have calvary that cost the same as a fully upgraded HE silverhelm but were loosing -2M and have to fight with stupidity and all we get out of the deal is a mount with S4. Then for rare you have a war hydra that ive never seen used, Black Guard that are too over priced, and of course the Cauldron.
The VC are good except that its too easy to watch your generals unit loose combat a couple times and this big bad Vampire dies to combat resolution. Also i would like to see neco's and Dire wolves trade in there fear to become living.
