Does any1 know when we r getting a new army book?
....I'm just kidding. But hey, wouldn't it be awesome if I was right? Well, what would be more awesome if I was wrong and it turned out to be something much closer. That said, gamesworkshop tries their best (although some people claim some leaks are deliberate) to keep their release schedule under wraps. So, unless you're in the heart of the GW beast, you wont have any knowledge of future events much past a month or two out. So, we can probably be safe in saying that it wont happen this summer. Unfortunately, only time will tell.
Wood Elves are basically on the bottom of the chopping block right now because they need to have the most work done to fix them. the trend for Fantasy is to update the books that need quick fixes to little things in their army or that were effectively broken. O&G, TK, Ogres, Empire, and VC were all armies that needed tweaks more than anything else and thus were and easy, profitable, and productive fix. Wood Elves on the other hand are going to need quite a bit of work for a new book. For starters, the current book is tiny and will need to be expanded to fill the size of the new ones, which means largely expanded fluff. On top of that, Wood Elf tactics are still set in 6th edition and that needs to be considered because they don't play like any other army. It's far more than a simple points reduction, I can tell you that.
