Hello there,

I've heard from people, and seen on a Finnish (or Swedish, can't remember exactly) that the We Army Book will be released on 11/7. There was some discussion about it on another site: link to site (http://s8.invisionfree.com/TheWaystone/index.php?showtopic=659&st=0)

I'd like to know if you would think this date is correct. Either if it is Advance Order or you can actually buy them in the shops. So July 11th or November 7th. But maybe this date is all the way wrong, or only an Advance Order thing for the Finnish/Swedish, which thought to get them early or so. What do you think?

Oh, here is the Swedish/Finnish site where it is announced (is there somebody Swedish/Finnish here that finds those words familiar? Can you please translate?): link to announcement (http://www.puolenkuunpelit.com/kauppa/product_info.php?cPath=30_42_142&products_id=7783)

I think it is strange. Then the UK WD would announce the release in the next WD, a month before. Remember a lot of blurry pics? There a lot of blurry and small pics, and even the small Army Deal pic is a bit blurry. I think GW wants to keep it secret till it's surprising release. So the July release would make sense then. But hwat about the Lustria Campaign and those mini's?

Personally I think this is either fake or the Advance Order announcement.

So what do you think in the end?

Its a Finnish site, and it is only the armybook that they sell, not the army deal!

What I think about the WE in general?

I like the new models alot and the rules looks great aswell!

I wont buy them though as a friend already has WE and will start a new army when it comes.

I will buy me some new steeds though, to convert some Ellyrion dragon princes for my HE army.

The site is in Finnish, and it says that the army book will be available on 11th July.

I think the others were with old prices, so 4x15=60 with a save of £10, actually... ;)

Don't worry, it's more like 3½ boxes. (Same "format" as the Lizardmen Battallion btw)
1.5 Box of Glade Guards (24 Models)
1 Box of Dryads (12 models, dammit! ^-^;)
1 Box of Glade Riders (8 models)
Total 44 Models, and £63 "value" for £50 (If the boxes cost £18 each...)

Err 24 GG isn't a good number for a regiment IMO... Aah that would be cr*p. I'd better prefer 36 Gladies and 12 Dryads instead of the other....

The Lizardmen Battalion contains 3 1/2 box sets. 16 Sarus, 8 Sarus, 24 Skinks, and 8 Cold Ones. At $30 a set that adds up to $105.00. But the Advance order price is $120.00. I checked the UK Website and Cold Ones are selling for the same price as normal boxed sets. So I don't see why the Battalion is priced as it is. Aren't Battalions supposed to provide a slight discount? Can someone explain this to me? Are US prices about to rise?

US prices are ALWAYS about to rise ;-)
Though I must say that in over a decade of warhammer, this WILL be the first boxed army i purchase- Mid July cannot come fast enough as far as i am concerned.
From what i know, GW is planning a fairly bigtime unveiling at GD Chicago (July 29th-ish), the only thing scheduled to be released before that was the army box.
