In case you havent made it over to Bell of Lost Souls recently, they had a bit of rumor regarding the DE update while discussing Gamesday Spain.
"The GD Spain presentation was given by Robin Cruddace, (of Codex: Imperial Guard). He laid out several products in the channel up until August, including Planetstrike and Planetary Empires. He noted that all the new kits (such as the Ironclad) are plastic and that even newer armies (such as the Eldar) will be recieving updates here and there in plastic.
Cruddace was asked about the Space Wolves, and while not giving out a launch date, he did confirm the Studio was working on not only the Wolves, but the Blood Angels and Black Templars.
He was also asked about the Dark Eldar. Jes Goodwin had still not completed work on them, so even if Games Workshop rushed the current assets into production, they would still be a year off.
Summary of Presentation Tidbits:
1. Dark Eldar. At least one year from now. Probably more.
2. Blood Angels & Black Templar: In works right now.
3. Space Wolves codex is complete, off to localization.
4. Necron and Tyranids: In the works.
5. Chaos Legion Codices: Inconclusive talks have been had and they are not on the current planning schedule.
6. Legend & Heraldry of Imperial Guard: Maybe if the new book for Imperium (Empire?) Legend & Heraldry has good acceptance."
(WH40K) Dark Eldar - (12,000pts) Sisters of Battle - (5000pts) Dark Angels -(3500pts) (WHFB) Dark Elves - (10,000pts) Beastmen - (5000pts) Empire - (3000pts) Wood Elves - (1500pts)
gah! Thats irritating.
We now have two different sources suggesting two different things.
GD Something (i htink Baltimore) said that Jes had finished the miniatures.
Blood angels and Black templar. This is the first I've heard of these guys being in the works.
[ignore this - read point 4 more thourghly splata]
The strangest thing about these rumours is the fact there are no other Xenos races mentioned and yet we are still over a year away. How are they going to manage this? Two Imperial years in a row? Its getting ridiculous. I'm not normally one to complain too much about the lack of Xenos love but all that power armour gets a tad boring I find....

Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
That might be the state of play for models but what about the rules?
Just gimme those and I will be a happy Archon!
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
that is bull. i dont care about new figs now. i just want a new codex
New codex by 2021? Please?
Funny thing is I'm the other way around. I'm much more excited about new models than new rules. Granted, Necrons need a new codex almost as badly as we do. On the other hand, Tyranids don't, and space marine legions can probably just use the standard marine codex.
Ah well, this just seems to be our fate. My planned Eldar army is looking more attractive every day.
And here I was getting all annoyed thinking that GW was going to release the new DE while I'm in Iraq... the way it's looking now, I may make it back before release!
I'm trying to find the silver lining here.

I´m not surprised, this was pretty much what I thought. It has been too few rumors around which show that its a long way ahead before we get a update. At leasts they are talking about us, thats something. So far it has gone a lot of year when GW has said nothing.
The last two are most likely just painting books like the the new one for "The Empire" in fantasy.
Isn't That Just Peachey
the last i herd was that they've finished the modles, and are just starting production, so maby only 2 years if where lucky!!!! lol. i'm not getting my hoped up about anything. i rekon it'll be mid next year, after space wolfs
Dark Eldar: 9/1/2 Winning streak: 6
Tyranids: 16/3/4 Winning Streak: 8
inquisition:4/0/3 Winning streak:0
Well I can't say I'm surprised.
I really want some new models... As far as the Templars and Blood Angels go, I don''t see why they can't combine the two into one book. Similarly, it would be cool if they combined the Dark Angels and Wolves in one book. GW seem to be keen on making larger codicies and, to be honest, I don't think any chapter needs a book of it's own. All this does is make armies in desperate need of an update wait that much longer. It really sucks.
