Is VC getting any kind of update? Ever? Rumors?
I would guess they will get an update, when would be guesswork at the moment though.
Its a big rumour, that most agree on, that Ogres are the next Fantasy army to get a new book and that Bretonnians are probably after them.
I would think that Wood Elves would probably be next, but thats just my theory.
But seriously, there won't be a specific army release because it's cost GW big bucks in the past!
As for the release rummors, it's being surmised that;
July - Storm of Magic (confirmed)
August - Necrons
September - mystery box???
Octogre - Fat Boyz
November - 40k release likely
December - xmas fare
Brets are rummored via Darnok/Harry as likely being early next year (Q1 hopefully!)
No one's guessing at the mess that is the wood elves right now!
JvK dropped a hint that VC's could be before the end of 2012 in another rummor thread!!!
Keep in mind though, this is all speculation at best, since GW has really shut down those leaky seals, and there's the added big rummor of 40k 6th edition coming out next July through September...
The "focus" at UK gamesday this year is finecast. Fact. The next army release is AFTER this (excepting some pre-order stuff available at games day on last weekend in september - that's your mystery box I think).
August - Necrons
September - mystery box???Late Mar 2012Octogre - Fat BoyzYeah necrons - at the same time as brettonians. A double 1st wave release.November - 40k release likelyYou mean no-one you know of.No one's guessing at the mess that is the wood elves right now!Ties in with what I'm told - 1st brets, 2nd Ogres/WE, and third VC'sJvK dropped a hint that VC's could be before the end of 2012 in another rummor thread!!!Likewise is the stuff I say - I can't prove it, just relaying what I hear from the 'world, y'know.Keep in mind though, this is all speculation at best,Yeah? who says?since GW has really shut down those leaky seals,6th edition is supposedly SOB and craftworld eldar. This is what I said elsewhere, but I'll say it again:and there's the added big rummor of 40k 6th edition coming out next July through September...
1. double header this year (brets & necrons)
2. then 1st quarter fantasy release (either ogres or wood elves)
3. JUN/JUL 40k as above
4. very quiet whispers of VC's after that
5. Black Templars for 40k oct/nov 2012
GW in their announcment where they stated they will take a harder take on the rumour mill. It's the same announcment that declared that there would be no more shipping to indipendent suppliers in the southern hemisphere. Somebody correct me if i forgot anything in that message. Anyway, it got a lot of people rattled up, just in time for their "price adjustment" or whatever its called.Yeah? who says?
IIRC, it also mentioned that the 'Incoming!' articles were being pulled... And that tracks since we're short an article that should have come monday/tuesday of this week.
GW is really shuting down any and all rummors because it's simply hurting them in the pocketbook. (honestly, who's really going to start that new and/or second army when you know your favourite army is being re-done within 2-3 months?!)
That's garbage. If someone told me right now the release dates for my favorite army, I might refrain from buying things for a bit but I'd spend more later. GW needs to stop complaining. They have the monopoly on almost every aspect of one of the most in-depth hobbies of all time.
You need at least two rule books (core and army) both ridiculously priced from GW.
You need models made by GW, probably at least 500$ worth
You need terrain- GW
You need paint- GW
Tape measures- GW
The magazine that has articles about the game GW
Any accessories you might want like flock or paint brushes (they'll even charge you for sand) GW
Sure you can get some through other means but it's so convenient.
I'm surprised we don't have to pay for FAQ's or mandatory monthly memberships to play at our local GW (shh don't tell them I said it, it might happen.)
They'd sell much more product if it were a little more affordable.
I totally agree with u
There prices are rediclious
Iv decided to buy mantic as it half the price
There are "Flame GW!" threads in other areas, let's stick to the "Updates?" thing here guys.
VC? Massively hurt after 8th ed. and Fear becoming near-useless compared to what it used to be. The points changes on TK suggests that we are massively overpriced points-wise (we are, it's just a matter of GW creating comparisons for us...). So, I would imagine that in terms of the army re-release queue, we just got bumped up a couple of places to rectify these changes. Of course, there are Dwarfs, WE, OK, Brets and possibly even Empire to go before us... So, like so many things we will have to wait and see. Though it is probably sooner than what it was going to be a year ago.
If someone helps you, rep them.
