OK I think this needs a thread all of its own.
ghost21 has been dropping a few rumours into the Empire thread.
Just to make life a bit easier and so we can focus on this exciting development .... here we go:
Ghost has posted the following:
Expect mini forces from various places,
I realy shouldnt but theres going to be mini armies like allies or sth (not sure on exact wording)
There will be things like a araby one and kislev, also I heard estalia, and oddly some insect kingdom
Dont post rules but lets say a pike is quite hard to use , but you get 3 ranks... spears you get 2 and no "reductions"... fishmen huh ;-).... possible possible
Maybe I misread it, but I thought Ghost was talking about a separate allies book with rules for Araby, Kislev, Tilea and the "Insectoids" (sounds alot like what some fans have been suggesting for a DoW replacement). AFAIK it had nothing to do with the forthcoming Empire release except to say that Kislev won't be in there.
In reply Ghost posted
Thats exactly what I meant
Ghost has also posted:
Its an expansion book, im told it wont effect the releases of other armies
Honestly you will see them in wd before book form.
I think Chaos dwarves are a Forge world thing for now.
Theres 5 "states" in the book / supplement
Apparently 2 "good" 1 nutural, and 2 "evil ish"
and when you think of fishmen?... there are far more disturbing creatures in the sea than just fish... *cough ithilids cough *
How'd you like them apples?
I tell you what ... I like them just fine.
BRING IT ON!
Thanks to Ghost for all of the above.
Hope you don't mind I pulled all your posts together in this way.

I can perhaps contribute. Some concepts on Araby were finished around 5 months ago, I though they were just for dreadfleet but nothing of what was described to me ended up in the book/game. I must say from what I was told what was seen certainly didn't imply a 'good' faction. I wouldn't be suprised at all to see them expanded upon further.
fable did this great round-up of every thing ghost has posted up to page 30
My thanks to him for the effort involved in trawling the thread for snippets:
