I have on good word from 2 staff members from my local GW that there will be a "special" army book released next year, Q1 2010. They said it's about as hushed up as Space Hulk was before release. They also said its something new, although "old new" (i.e chaos dwarfs, dogs of war) or completely brand new is unknown to them.

A speculations as to what it could be?

Ozorik
15-11-2009, 10:19
Chaos Dwarves from forgeworld would be my guess, but Q1 seems a little early. Beastmen are scheduled for release in Q1 and I can't see another major fantasy release then. Just becasue it is 'hushed up' doesn't mean anything these days, GWs current policy is to deny all knowledge until just before release..

I didn't say anything about SpaceHulk.

(EDIT: Well not very much :D)

If Harry didn't say anything about Space Hulk (which was accurate) then maybe if he's not saying anything about this ...

Clearly it is a Dogs of War style army where Gay Pride regiments from multiple races band together to fight their oppressors.

Condottiere
15-11-2009, 11:14
There are some possibilities, it could be from the Ye Olde Forgeworld, which would include the accompanying range of figures, though a first quarter launch would take away from BoC.

If it does occur, the chances are May 2010 - though if it's aquatic, it's Cthulhu Crabmen.

BigRob
15-11-2009, 11:15
The return of Pygmies!

Maybe Nippon?

What do you mean the army is just made up of the new citadel giant model that they need to sell?!

GW seem to want to stay away from such archetypes, which is why I think there will never be an araby, nippon, Ind or hinterlands of Khush realease.

Can't see a fishmen army, they already have dark and high elves using the sea, and as far as I know the rules don't cover fighting in/on water.

A flight based army seems much more plausible. There are already rules for flying units so it wouldn't take much to drop such an army in to the game.

Lord Malorne
15-11-2009, 12:20
Your reason for thinking that a fishmen army is unlikely is that High and Dark Elves travel by the seas?

How very odd :D.

Lord MalorneGC ;)

Whitehorn
15-11-2009, 12:22
If it was as hushed as Space Hulk, we'd know which army it was.

orlanth1000

Oh god, not another one of these?

And the worst thing is, I will get swept away in the all the mystery and rumour.

I'm such a shambles sometimes....

Condottiere
15-11-2009, 12:48
An army composed entirely of flying creatures would be impossible to corral. Not to mention a constant threat to the rear areas.

Besides, it has to both archetypical and saleable.

Would anyone else seriously like a Fishmen army book? I don't think it would ever happen, but I'd buy it. And every single model released with it.

(Cthulhu army is a dream of mine. ;))

Falkman
15-11-2009, 13:49
If Fishmen were ever released I'd be all over it like a fat kid over bacon.

Bregalad

I didn't say anything about SpaceHulk.

(EDIT: Well not very much :D)
Then you should hunt down that bloke using your name who told us about Space Hulk in Watchman #2 (page 55) more than 2 years in advance (April 2007). ;)

Anyway, if this is true, it is not a Forge World Fantasy release, but a general one. I wouldn't rule out Chaos Dwarves, as they need less new units as some others, using Orks and other slaves from other ranges and maybe get additional models from FW.

Hmm... i'm not hoping for any news till i see it :( The last time we got some decent info way-before stuf was released was the latest empire stuff. After that, all went 'hushed up' and the 1st pic i've seen of the beastmen was the cover i recieved via email not too long ago.

Quite a pity, it's got me quite in-active in warseer :p Oh well... i'll wait and see.

Though, if it's something new, i hope it's badass and v.nice model wise so i can buy myself some goodies :D

I find the lack of fake army book covers in this thread to be disheartening. The original thread had Bears, Chuck Norris, and the FSM mock ups if I remember correctly. If we can't have the facts then comedy will have to tide us over I suppose. Oh and Araby please ... :P

Deamons? Unless they're going to 'down-grade' them i dont think it'll happen. And if they DO downgrade them, ppl will get pissed.

What would be nice would be integrating the new o&g (read it somewhere, not sure if it was debunked) and release some hob-goblin stuff to form some chaos dwarves. But, do we realy need another bad army which is a faction of 'Chaos'? :confused:

Condottiere

I don't see any commercial reason to renew Daemons; there might be some fundamental shift in the basic rules that might nerf them a little to a more tolerable level.

I am trying to avoid all rumours, I really would like to be surprised by GW.

But ofcourse I am very curious on what marvelous surprise they have for us waiting.

However for those interested in fishmen;


I personally would not worry to much about the fishmen.

It seems Dragonblood miniatures are covering them nicely with their upcoming "Dark Mariners".

Give Nurgle and Tzeentch the same treatment and correct the astrocity of the old book.

Darnok
15-11-2009, 16:56
"Something new, but 'old' new" would point towards Chaos Dwarfs or Dogs of War. So the usual suspects.

Maybe a complete revamp of something else? Ogres could be treated like that: completely new plastics, some bigger warmachines, new characters. A change of style - again. But that's just mindless speculation here. If they redo Ogres in the near future - which I hope they will before 2011 - I hope for additions, not an overhaul.

Desert Rain

Can someone please confirm that there is at least a mystery "something" happening at some unspecified point next year?

These threads have rambled on with wishlisting and so on with no actual confirmation of this being anything other than yet another false internet rumour.

15-11-2009, 19:09
Excellent. Another "Mystery army" thread. I really love these. :D

*Grabs a beer and gets comfortable*.

Didn't you start the last one?;)

Actually, you don't think that this rumour is just the realworld time delay of the last "something big is brewing that will change the face of Warhammer Fantasy forever...but I can say no more" thread? At somepoint some sociology student doing their thesis on new media needs to have a word/pie with you, the results would be fascinating.

Grimstonefire
15-11-2009, 19:14
The timing of this one is... interesting.

I thought Q1 was pretty much fully booked now in terms of products from the studio? If so they would either have to throw this new book in as a second/third big product, or push the releases back a bit?

I guess another alternative could be that this is from forgeworld and doesn't have many models associated with it's initial release..? That would tie in with the release schedule as they could just devote a page to it in WD.

@undeadgoblin
Are you sure they said Q1? The rest of your post I wouldn't question, but that bit seems strange.

Has anyone think of angels?

It would probably bring the most skeptism, and purely original idea for the game. It might also have to be set in the kingdom of ind, south of Cathay.

The other thing the list might also consist of Titans....:eek:

(and no, Tastyfish, I absolutely did not start the last the one).

Sorry about that, didn't mean to cause any offense.

Though could have sworn it was you though, or at least seem to remember you commenting on appreciating a thread that was full of hopeful speculation rather than critisms or unfounded complaints. Think it was around when we were told there was also going to be a big reveal at the German GD that wasn't going to be Space Hulk (but then everything we were told was a lie). Or am I going completely insane (which I'm not quite willing to rule out, not the first time my wishful thinking has got the better of me when there's the sniff of warhammer seige)?

Angels have alot of variety to choose from, in myth there are nine orders to choose from. Mostly known are Angels, Archangels, Powers (Elite footsoldiers), Dominions, Cherubim (Archers), and Seraphim (the Divine Protectors). for the warhammer world has yet to see angels?

Titans would also be a great idea, for OK talk alot of the race and their skycastles, what if there were some survivors and migrated south? maybe too few of them to have an army, but probably enough to be a rare choice or lord choice?

lol hope this gives a good boost of ideas :angel:

Cain-asmodeus
15-11-2009, 20:26
I can beleive it would be a long thread.

Present commercial and financial circumstances will dictate that the "new" fantasy army will feature power armor.

Those who are wishlisting for a new demon book need to just face the reality that the demons in their present incarnation are likely to remain in the game for the next 5 to 8 years.

Cain-asmodeus
15-11-2009, 20:57
well considering the factor of another deamon army is quite relatively low....since their is one already

The fishman army.... or Merfolk ideaology can be a well devised army, if you allowed for the story/background to be feilded on land. Another issue would be is where would they be based, like an underwater city somewhere?

DOW would be a good choice, they have lots of stories out there to compliment the army, a new approach could bring them more appeal.

Chaos dwarves, i do imagine forge world could be working on that, so i doubt the mystery army is them

I would like to beleive an armylist consisting of angels, and Titans. there is alot of material to base the idea. another is that it would be new aspect for the warhammer world

:angel::angel:

Kamenwati
15-11-2009, 21:05
Or, and not to be a naysayer or anything, maybe they could update one of thier existing armies rather then introduce a new one.

That'd be my preference, but I am biased with playing Tomb Kings. :P

Why do WE need an update? Other armies have been out longer, and I thought they were still a strong army.
In all seroiusness, I would like to see Chaos Dwarfs. They have references in almost every 7th edition army book so they're not getting "Squatted". How long must we wait?!

I'm the kind of guy who gets tired of painting the same thing (like my current empire army - get tired of the uniforms) so a DOW army would be unbelievably amazing.

other than that id Really like to see an all flying army, An Angel list could definetly accomplish that, and the interesting part is a units flying in formation. ..... but it in order to keep it balanced and fair, they could reduce the range of flight by 10" (as they may also carry heavy armor)

Its going to be the army of Sea People.

What would be more freighting than an army with ranks of Sea Men with spears ready to thrust forward into action? How about a Sea Men Gunline with so many Sea Men shooting into the face of your army!

Id continue but I feel my point has been made. Making an army like this is asking for someone to show up with something like that.

Instead of a new army book I feel like they should fix the ones we have first! Im looking at you Ogres :evilgrin:

I doubt it will be a new army, especially not ANOTHER human army (what do we have so far? DOW, empire, brets, chaos warriors). I think it will be either chaos dwarves or dogs of war.

It should be a new army. It should have nothing to do with Chaos. No humans. In fact, no anything that has even been mentioned in the history of Warhammer. I have two words for all of you:

Myconids were a lot of fun when I first saw them. I want something different though. I can see living fungus as part of Wood Elves without a need to make them their own army. Really, Halflings are all that is "missing" from GW army lines in so far as Tolkien-esque fantasy is concerned.

who knows the There could be a floating Skycastle out there, unreachable by ogre hands, and the fortress migrated south. An old remenant of the Old ones perhaps

They would have powers like the ancient folklore of Greece, creating possible Collosus 5 times the size of giants, to protect the fortress :p

If it is Chaos Dwarves, then I can't see the sales being higher than what Ogre Kingdoms did when they came out. (ie: nothing drastic, merely a pip in the GW money radar screen)



Here is to hoping it is something OTHER than Chaos Dwarfs.

There aren't that many 'forgotten' armies, although I suppose it depends on what is classed as an army.

Chaos Dwarves - forgeworld
DoW - don't fit in with the current fantasy ethos, apparently
Nagashizzar (sp?) - yes please (it would even get me interested in undead again, somethng which VC fail to do)
Fimir - unlikely
Other minor factions like Norse Dwarves - I cant see it happening.

My money is on the return of the clown of death.

Before getting all excited, it could be they're re-doing tomb kings or something which still needs the re-vamp. Snippets probably doesnt mean there's going to be more than one army so the 'most we can hope for' would be a brand new army and something which hasnt been seen for a while, i'm assuming the same way Wood Elves came back into fantasy after years and years of 'no-update' stuff.

A new army COULD be supported by the 8th ed rules (possibly, why they're going to fix them when they seem pretty ok to me as they are now) OR they could be part of a new campaign (Same way Vostrojan came as an army for Medua V if i'm not mistaken). They're like... the kislev of the future or something :angel:

Chaos dwarves is too optimistic. I think dogs of war is a possibility... after all, if they released models and made their rules reasonable, almost every army would use them. That's a lot of models sold. Of course it would suck if we then saw DoW units filling every armies weakness (or taken as a concession, in the case of daemons/vampires/dark elves).

Fenrir

Not until the new BoC book is released.

Dai-Mongar
17-11-2009, 10:16
I assume that if DoW make a comeback, it will be as their own army. No taking their units in other armies (or maybe a couple of select units).
Chaos Dwarfs are more likely than you think. They're still mentioned in most army books, and their fluff is quite unique.

Personally I wouldn't be suprised by pirates (either Harkons lads which would be really awesome or Sartosa which is really to small for an army of their own but written as a faction itself on the collectors range)....saying that I think Kislev would be a smart move, there are many models done allready so it doesn't require as much effort as say fishmen, araby and cathay.

Actually Wolfen isn't a bad idea.
Would never happen with no previous fluff, and is probably too close to beastmen, but Pallidium have them going well as a race in their RPG.

Next year is so close it hurts with expectation, they need to breathe new life into the game, and I hope this is exactly what is coming.

Same. I find WH:Fantasy got 'stuck in a certain point' where, even with new rulebooks, the game is essentially the same. Now i'm not a rules-guy and i havent read the full ruleset, but there isnt a lot of variation in gamplay, both rulewise and armywise.

Even though i'd love to see a new army, i'd rather see them focus on a book with many scenario rules, tweaks to the current army lists for more balanced games etc.

Back on topic...mystery army :rolleyes:

You know, it wouldn't be with gw's time to do Cathy, Nippon, Ind, or Araby. So, here's my idea - Warhammer: Armies of the East. One box set with a limited run. A list for all four armies, with enough models for a complete small army. The basic troopers and cav would be the same figs, with gubbins to make them different. Then gw could release a few different models for some rares to fill them out (orinetal dragans, djinns, oni, elephants, etc)

Just my $.02 :)

I dont think you can consider it a good way to sell an 'army.' If you sell a limited ammount of a certain model, yes maybe, a boardgame would work that way fine. But an army?

Grimstonefire
17-11-2009, 22:49
Just to point out here something that has been mentioned before a few times (and not just by me). At games day I was told that the other armies that had not been done yet (cathay/ nippon etc) had a very good chance of being released some day. I said this in one of the games day threads here at the time.

Bear in mind that fantasy forgeworld will be the ones doing this, and these sorts of things will be projects they are probably working on already (if they have a lead time of 2 years say, which is probably more than they need for a range of resin). A division entirely focused on producing bits for ranges will probably want to get the army lists out fairly soon (to give them ranges to add to, and so some sneaky gits don't mess up their IP plans). Q1 would be really fast work... Unlikely imo.

So any rumours you hear about those sorts of armies should be taken with less salt than you might imagine. In fact over on warhammer empire a guy who happens to also be a member here posted on the forum that he had seen some cathayan/ nipponese sculpts.

Many people have said (quoting GW staff) that some sort of chaos dwarfs are high on the list of fantasy forgeworld.

For those who have not read this before it may be interesting, but nothing that has not already been said before by others. Nothing really new, just joining the dots for people who weren't aware. ;)

but thats just my hope....

If we're going to make guesses based upon our current knowledge, we know a few things:

1) Warhammer Fantasy is being released next year.

2) Next year is the 'Year of cavalry'.

3) They have not released Ogres in this edition, nor have they released Dogs of War or Chaos Dwarfs or Tomb Kings or Brettonia.

If I were to guess, I would say Brettonia is the most likely, considering it's the year of Cavalry and Brettonia hasn't been released in this edition.

Well, there's a lot of referenced races with no/few models that would make a good basis for a real army list. However, ones with models in the past (if not full lists) seem more likely. That leads to:

-Hobgoblins (unlikely, too similar to OnG and not much scope beyond masses of wolf riders)
-Dogs of War (unlikely as they were only cut fairly recently)
-Fimir (unlikely as GW wants a child-friendly image, and their background won't cut it, although a rewrite is possible they'll just end up as swamp ogres)
-Chaos Dwarves (GW could be releasing an official book to go with the Fantasy Forgeworld stuff or make the plastic troop kits and have Forgeworld Fantasy do the big stuff)
-Zoats (unlikely, only ever had a handful of figures/troop types and I don't think they were very popular)
-Amazons (they have a Mordheim warband which I suppose counts for something, could have a new playstyle which would be like a mix of WE/Lizards with some HE mixed in)
-Halflings (possible, although they might not gel well with the grimdark in the game now)
-Kislev (they have also had a Mordheim warband, Warmaster army and several WFB units, but their country no longer exists - or does it, I don't keep up with the background as GW feels they can erase whatever whenever)
-Nippon (I know they had a rocket launcher figure in a really old edition, and some other stuff too I think, some good scope for a force but unless the oriental myth aspect is heavy people might not welcome another mostly human force, lots of myths to draw from though)
-Araby (they had their Warmaster army, this seems to be the strongest evidence apart from Kislev, did the Warmaster stuff sell well ?)

Might have missed some, but these are the ones I can think of now. Cathay etc all have a chance but since they haven't had models before

yabbadabba
19-11-2009, 19:15
@ Aura Good options are:
Amazons - would fit in with Dark Elves, Lizards and Skaven
Kislev - they were only redone for SoC

Possibles are:
CD and Hobgoblins - might be same army list
DoW - GW know they will be popular and they could get 3 or 4 very popular plastics out of it straight up.

Outside:

Nippon and Araby - Araby has a better chance because of Empire and Tomb Kings, but not as much as the others. Nippon would be great but GW have had some IP issues with these in the past which has lead to projects getting scrapped

Fimir and Zoats - nope. Loved to see them but they would never be a "major" army.

Its quite obvious, Angels would best suit that title.


Upon hearing that GW wants a 'child friendly' environment, Angels would be the ideal creature to help create that sort of atmosphere.

There is alot of ways Angels can be introduced into the world of men. I know the ability is possible, since their is a 40k counterpart in the sisters of battle.

Cain-asmodeus
20-11-2009, 01:19
One example of introducing them is to use the skycastles of the Titans.

Perhaps not all of them were destroyed, and one scycastle could float in the air and escape the impending doom from the ogres.

This would also confer that there is ancient technology still abroad the castle, and it is easy to assume if the floating city were to land near the kingdom of Ind or any other eastern city, that they would have a large following.

Angels could emerge from the ancient portals in the city, for the ancients could have made a last ditched effort to reconnect with outside world?

Well Warhammer world is Da high fantasy of dark fantasy of Dark Fantasy world. Good guys always win, bad guys always lose, and even if the bad guy win, a random orc is going to beat him down and walk away wearing sun shades and a sweeping coat John Woo style... Its called Stomp of Khaoz.

Yeah, i remember them taking the nice looking deamonettes from last edition completly away.....even tho they had a nice veiw to them, i liked the models alot. I do beleive it was done so to find an appropriate way of getting younger fanbase.

I wonder if FW could make an Angel & Titan fantasy army :p

As for demons, I can get use to them as long as they don't try to eat me. Sadly they are but fairy tales....now I am a sad panda awwwww...:angel:

After all this wishlisting, all we need is another guy posting the crabmen pic here again and this thread gets banned :p

There are quite a few armies in fantasy so coming up with another one (in the same edition? we already got 'deamons' who were a form of new army for 7th) this time round is a bit 'strange' in my opinion. The best way to sell a new army would be putting it in the starter set...

... could it be? :D

EDIT:

This looked interesting, though some claim this info to be old-ish. If they had to make another undead army, i'm hoping it'd be inpired by that WD samurai-skeleton guy thing :p


Hi all,

i had a nice Chat with Phil Kelly during GD Germany and asked him what is going to happen to the Master Necromancers which where dropped in the new Army Book of Vampire Counts. I told him that in my humble opinion it is a shame that Special Characters like Heinrich Kemmler which is a Special Char since first Edition were dropped out of the Army List. He agreed that many People in the Studio felt the same. I asked him if they would return with Tomb Kings which he denied. On my demand if we could expect a 3rd Undead Army he confirmed that it is a possiblity. This would have several Advantages for GW. Background Special Characters Magic Lore and a lot of the Army Sculpts are already developed. I know that it is a shot far into the Future bit i would like to hear your Opinion on this. :skull:

Lol. I would buy that.

Just think of the fun you could have with special rules! :D

Deferred Assault rule (which means you combat would last as long as it took for your enemy to get bored and concede defeat), and your army would always cost 25% more than you could afford, unless you amortise it over 5+ years.

They could have Netters, the Pay Master as a general and a ‘number cruncher’ (war machine). They would of course have financial instruments as well.

Their magic would be the Lore of Bore, and they would have the obligatory Mat Ward Save (5+).

Finally they would have magical impairment weapons, which would negate enemy assets (armour).

:D

:D Special Character : Mr Jones the Auditor. You opponent has to field Mr Jones in his army. Due to his cost cutting and highlighting of irregularities all units over 250pts must start off table in reserve.
Asset Liquidation: every war machine and magic item the accountants "sell back" to creditors allows the whole accountants army a d6 scout move. This is accumalative.

(HINT, HINT) :p with the an insect theme myself and I think that it would be awesome.

His snippet is that he is sitting on something instead of typing it. ;)

Which doesn't class as info imo, as the first post here still seems too odd to me (a new army in Q1 specificially). I just think we'd know more by now, and the release schedule from the studio is really packed out already.

I'm going to make my guess here. There is something from GW that is not an army book. It will be a supplement. The fact that the studio release schedule seems packed already implies IF there is something it will come from FW (or not have any models at all).

Unless there is a WOTR book coming out? I never really pay any attention to those rumours.

That statement wouldnt be as far fetched as some of you may think. If i'm not mistaken, The Perry Twins have their own WW2 products, so if this ever happens, i htink we can safely say that the Perry's would probably be involved. Then again, i know there's the Warhammer Historical etc, but i dont think they'll go to the extent of releasing a whole line of models to make a new 'core system' as big as WH:Fantasy, 40k and LotR.

And if they put in fantasy elements in it, it'd just be a rip-off of other WW2-fantasy models whos names escape me atm (i remember there were nazi zombies in one series). And, i dont think GW will go to the extent of just coppying someone elses 'oh-so-original-idea' :p

I think any new extra army book that was going to appear next year would have to be in the vien of the way GW previously released the Kislev army book.

Now Kislev are definitly one option and I personalyl think Norse could also be done this way but because awhile back we had all the rumours flowing around the return of Nagash etc I would lean toward army book Necromancer.

Bascially you would just change characters and maybe one or two units of the Vampire counts and viola new army list.

Please let them release new zombies that are in same style as the cart. New werewolf skirmish unit would be cool as well. Could have a rule for every person they kill you get an extra werewolf as once killed there prey also become werewolves. (why werewolves even though the hints before have them in the norse...simply becuase I likes them and I want to see GW make some cool werewolf models).


Nice to see some kind of Jack O lattern style character along with Franksteins monsters as well. I also always thought that spiders should be involved in some in an undead army...Maybe necromancers could have them instead off or as well as Dire Wolves....

Special characters...
Heinrich Kemmler
Dieter Helsnicht
Krell
Headless Horseman (come on no one owns the IP and GW are masters of taking cool ideas and incomporating them into there worlds)
Anyway probably not correct but would be very nice to see....

Very, very, very, very, very cool idea. Seriosuly, it'd be marvellous :p You pay for 2 to 3 warewolves, and each model you kill gives you the chance (with a diceroll 1-2 the person is too mutilated to live, 3-4 successful transformation, 5-6 the warewolf is unstoppable [would work somehting like a fanatic or something on those lines])

Damn wishlisting ;)

I want mermen. Two main races with several clines for units (like orcs and goblins) Ondines are the humanoid merfolk who can shapeshift legs but retain their fins and shark like mouths and black eyes. Units could include Selkies who wear seal pelts and wield harpoons who hail from the polar seas and fight a constant war against chaos. There are Kelpie riders who are scary, Sirens are casters, Nixes are leaders, Naiads are common units, nereids as well (spearmen), Oceanids have great weapons...

Lots of opportunities with them, and in addition they have an under race of murlocish man-frog-fish (not to be confused with the ferocious man-bear-pigs of the southern chaos wastes who roam the melting ice caps...)

grumbaki
08-01-2010, 21:49
Melting ice caps? Well, I suppose that chaos dwarfs could cause global warming...

Can you imagine a summit between the engineers of Nuln, guild leaders from the Dwarf Holds, Warplock Engineers from Clan Skyre and slave lords from the Chaos Dwarfs coming together to discuss climate change? Well, it would probably go as well as it does in the real world. Just with more blood.
