    Re: Release schedule rumors

    It seems to me that the pace of releases is increasing, which is as it should be both for GW and us. So those of us with armies that are badly in need of an update can have some hope. (cough *Dwarfs* cough.)

    Now on topic: If High Elves are next up it would propbably not be until may-june as we have had 4 army books/codexes released in 3 months
    This was said when people talked about daemons (no way it's a double book release, that would be 4 books in 3 months.

    Other sites have had birdies saying that there has been a shift this year, so it is quite possible that we will see

    Tau, eldar, he and lizards this year - which would total at 8(!) books, 4 for each system.

    Given the usual play in summer releases and 3onths of viable releases come September, I think it's definitely possible we could see that many books this year, with less next year with new fantasy edition to come out.

    Re: Release schedule rumors

    I was thinking... This year is 30th anniversary of Warhammer Fantasy... Maybe we will see something special by April or May... Something like High Elf limited edition mini or HE new army...

    Who knows... I am hearing very interesting news... and also very sad news about Games Day in my country... maybe delayed or cancelled...

    Maybe Harry and Hasting have anything to say about it....

    Re: Release schedule rumors

    About the increased release rate of army books and codexes, remember that daemons are a special case counting double, and that the second half of the year usually has a lower release rate, as it is usually reserved for big boxes and waves (july and december don't usually have books, and september or october usually get a big box), plus the Hobbit that will certainly get another big release for the second film.

    So 3 books for the first half of the year (WoC, Demons, HE) and only one more for the second hald (lizardmen) still seems like a normal GW release rate.

    Of course, we might still get another book late 2013 after lizardmen if we're lucky, but I would not hold my breath over it.

    Some of them are probably digging under the hill too, don't forget... Seriously though, that makes me very happy indeed!

    You're on the mark, Hastings and Harry hinted recently that after High Elves and Lizardmen, the order would probably be Dark elves, Dwarves, and then Wood elves.

    With 9th edition supposed to come in 2014 too, the poor Brettonians will probable have to wait for 2015 (maybe the first 9th edition book ?)

    Yep, when I started the post the information was that Tau would be before summer, close to HE. What with HE being closely linked to end of April for Pre order, I reckon we will see Tau first.

    Bearing that in mind, part of me whether GW may take a break from releasing armies after the massive push recently.

    Re: Release schedule rumors

    Some wave releases and other things can be inferred, giving us a potential schedule for the rest of the year:
    March: Daemons
    April: Tau
    May: High Elves
    June: Wave release for 40K
    July: Apocalypse II expansion
    August: Wave Release for Fantasy (with daemons models?)
    September: Box set (Blood Bowl?)
    October: Eldar
    November: Lizardmen
    December: Hobbit II

    Isn't the latest news have a spotting of the next WD having a Nids wave in it. So maybe Tau will likely be in May then.

    That's the same site that claimed that February's WD would feature four new aircraft for 40K...
    He has no clue.

    Still going with Tau, then High elves, as Hastings has a far better track record.
    If there is a Nid wave of models, June does seem like a spot to put them though.

    Evidently not: "Somebody emailed me"?

    Sounds legit.

    If you read into it, you'll also notice that said information(supposedly) came from reading the WD, but this apparently wasn't enough to tell what said new models were supposed to be.

    Yeah... I'm sceptical.

    Apparently there is a pic in the back cover of a Nid beastie fighting Thunderwolves. But back covers are no longer previews, but just cool art pieces.
