"An ancient race that has lain dormant for thousands of years, the Tomb Kings now awaken from within their ancient burial pyramids. Cheated from the eternal life that they were promised, the Tomb Kings are instead doomed to an eternal undeath - awakened they thirst for vengeance against those who would disturb their slumber.

At the command of these undying lords march legions of implacable Skeleton Warriors, hosts of chariots crewed by long-dead crewmen and towering statues carved from unyielding stone.

The armies of the Tomb Kings are vast, unstoppable hordes that know neither fear nor remorse - and they shall not rest until all who stand against them are laid low.

This May Warhammer: Tomb Kings is released, containing everything you need to use the legions of Nehekhara in your games of Warhammer.

Alongside the new book we'll also be releases a slew of amazing new miniatures for Tomb Kings players to collect and add to their armies. Details are being kept firmly under wraps for now, but more details will be available over the coming months. To make sure you're the first to see the new models and read the latest news keep your eyes fixed to the pages of White Dwarf, the Games Workshop newsletter and the What's New Today blog.

In the meantime, if you're a Tomb Kings player (or thinking about becoming one) it's time to start building up your Undead hordes in preparation for the new arrivals. So, out with the large drybrush (and the pot of Bleached Bone) and onwards to glory!

Presented below are two exclusive sneak peeks at the upcoming releases. Please keep checking back on the website, and in White Dwarf for more information in the near future."

Nice gift GW; does this mean that you will start releasing one Armybook every two month from this day forward? :D

Edit; Found a topic in the rumour thread, but since it's nolonger a rumour that TK will be next, we might have a thread on the subject in 'general discussion' as well? Or maybe not...I'm confused.

Man. Just when I had decided to get back into Fantasy after 12 years or so with my beloved Dark Elves. I've always been fascinated by Egyptian mythology. Maybe I'll start TK up, too.

I'm actually really really curious in how they've done the new skellies. At least I presume there are gonna be new skellies, since the old one kinda suck compared to the VC ones.....

I think that it goes to show that speculation and rumor-mongering is entirely pointless. I will not be surprised if they have several army books scheduled for release this year that they are keeping tight-lipped about.

Patience, it appears, is entirely the key.

Edit: "Go for the eyes, Boo!"

If they are going to do tomb kings, maybe they will do fishmen also.

Valentine's day was never about celebrating love until Hallmark made it a commercial holiday in the early 1900s. It used to be about Romans celebrating Feb. 13th to 15th with lots of things that would be considered criminal by today's society.

Yeah, that Chaucer bloke was sponsored by the greetings card people.

Anyway, as you can tell from my sig I'm happy about this, hope they dont mess it up
