A little birdy told me: Necrons may be pushed back another month, even though that might be 50/50.
Don't kill me, I'm just the messenger. And I don't buy it - but wanted to let you know anyway.
I am with you Darnok, i don't buy it. Not that i believe this birdy in that the necrons will be later then the current rumours. But if they are later then the current rumours it has nothing to do with being 'pushed back' and everything to do with the rumorus being just rumours.
For those of you who do not play a marine army. Thank you. You bring some spice and flavour to this hobby.

Pushed back from when I thought they were most likely May?
Sorry no GW I will not pay twice the $$$ to buy from retail stores in Australia and no amount of adds to the hobby, support you FLGS bulldung is going to change the fact your charging twice as much.
Well, we 'know' of 3 upcoming waves: 'Nids, 'Crons and Wolves. It's unlikely that they're all released in the same month. Maybe your birdy just meant that the Nids/Wolves are coming first, and the Necrons after that?
Also, don't post questions in the News and Rumours forum.
I'm inclined to disbeleive considering how often some of the more prominent guys have said 'stuff doesn't get pushed back - it was always going to be released at xyz time'.
Anyone know how far ahead White Dwarf is published / written?
Surely if they write them in advance the releases have to coincide with the articles or adverts...
Current rumOurs had Nids next month with crons a mOnth or two after and Space Wolves in there somewhere too. So this isn't really new lol
Unless they mean a month back from May or whatever
Don't post questions in the rum... Oh, hang on...
If this is the case does this mean there's more Nids than we originally thought? Something else we didn't see coming?
In the Grim Darkness of the Far Grim Dark there is only Grim Darkness, and skulls.

Probably just means the space wolves got thrown in with the nids. Beasts of War seem to think that's what's happening
Maybe the Nids wave slated for next month will be paired with the rumoured Space Wolves models as they didn't want to have two Xenos armies in one month?

This is what Harry said in the NID-CRONS thread:
Given that 25th February is the big 40k 25th Anniversary celebration day, and is also the day that March's pre-orders go up, GW had a choice: release the Necron 2nd wave, which would give them most of their options; or do a mixed release of Nids and Space Wolves including models people have been clamouring for for years - i.e. Tervigon/Tyrannofex and Thunderwolves.Originally Posted by Harry
No one has posted clear rumours about the contents of the release, and some Nid models may be held back for a later wave. Harry said he's heard a Harpy is waiting in the wings, and there was talk of a plastic Hive Tyrant / Swarmlord, but we just don't know at this stage. Finecast Parasite of Mortrex was sighted though.
Even if we don't hear a peep out of our rumoury overlords we should start seeing leaked pics from WD in about a week.
As for that IG wave with the plastic Hydra and Storm Troopers, Stickmonkey said it's not going to be released as soon as he originally was told. It was on Harry's list of stuff that was pretty much done though, so it could be part of general mini releases around 6th Ed.
Too bad. A general release with Storm Troopers included would've been great.
With Necrons getting their battleforce boxset it would have been nice for the Grey Knights to have gotten one too...

The Deathleaper may just get moved to Finecast. If I'm not mistaken, it's still listed as metal.
The Hive Tyrant stuff has been a giant tease, as far as I'm concerned. A wonderful, and hopefully fulfilling tease....
