    Release schedule rumors

    I remember there being a thread for this before that Harry/Hastings had either set up or commented on, I cannot find it do I thought that I would post this on here for news /discussion. I have nothing on this except what I have taken from Faeit 212, who had it from Bols.

    Thanks to Hastings and others for contributing to this:-

    Dates---take dates below as being the month AFTER the WD release (Eg, HE available end of April Pre-order---on sale May)

    **updated May 2013**

    Obviously this list is now halfway through. HE are here which means all things point to 2months of non fantasy. Roll on August!

    20/04/13 --- Eldar now majorly rumoured to be June release. List updated to include BloodBowl September, Lizardmen in August with space marines in October. November still trying to find posts to update that.

    02/03/13-- new eldar rumours still confirming release this year.

    18/2/13-- HE strong rumours of May ,pre-orders in April

    12/2/13 - apocalypse update pretty much guaranteed for summer release. Moved Lozards to a more reasonable release slot. Ive got Tau rumors all over the place but I would assume after Daemons they may go for a straight 40K release. When I know more I will inform you.

    JAN: Dark Angels
    FEB: WoC / flyer book rules
    MAR: Daemons 1st wave (books/some models)
    APR: Tau
    MAY: HE
    JUN: Eldar
    JUL: 40k Apocalypse update
    AUG: Lizardmen
    SEP: Bloodbowl
    OCT: Space Marines
    NOV: Fantasy army release (likely DE)
    DEC: Hobbit

    Now, as usual, these things tend to get more speculative as you go outwards in time, but overall these line up with what we've been hearing from a variety of chatter. *We've been hearing for a while that the "Mystery Box" is a fully revamped Blood Bowl.*

    40k wise the word is both Tau and Eldar before the end of the year.

    well, it's the 26th birthday, not as auspicious as the 25th would have been.

    I hope the march wave comment means a book. It would match up nicely with how VC came along last time around

    The term 'wave release' is pretty specific when it comes to gw stuff. It _never_ means book. The WoC stuff that just happened (marauder slaanesh riders and jugger knights) is an example of a wave release.

    Usually if there is a book, they will say 'codex' or 'army book' depending on the system, though in this case they just listed the army name.

    Going by what is listed, I'd say whoever gave Larry that list is feeling overly optimistic. That is an overly-crowded year for GW.

    February includes a Hobbit wave release. GW confirmed this with a link on the website that was taken down, but not before people got a good look at what was coming

    Link to thread for the doubters

    Re: Release schedule rumors

    I had ordered a Black Library book from GW about a week ago & they sent me a product list with expected due dates. Metal Kroxigor were listed as being 'obsolete'. I realize they do Finecast waves independent of releases, but take that info for what you will.

    edit: they sent me it because my book is also 'obsolete'.

    Care to share the list with dates? It would be interesting to see what all is listed and how far out it goes.

    @giant stegadon:
    Well, the Kroxigor got rekitted into a 3-model finecast kit quite a while ago(don't remember when, sorry). I'm surprised you could even access the old metals.

    Sorry to hear 'bout your book

    Re: Release schedule rumors

    Is it common for an army to receive two waves before a new book, as is being suggested for WoC? March seems a likely landing point for their AB, but it is plausible that it could be one of the ???? entries, i.e. October.

    Skaw's initial optimisim about Wood Elves being re-released in mid 2013 is slipping... Early 2014 ftw! [EDIT: Nailed it! ]

    No, it isn't. The trend with one pre-release wave is fairly new and no army has had two - not yet anyway.

    Hastings doesn't have WoC on his schedule, which lasts until next autumn or thereabouts. So I'm not expecting anything WoC related until then.
    As a long-time Goblin player, I can reliably inform you that failure is ALWAYS an option.

    To be fair he had them in oct/nov, just didn't foresee there not being a book then. I remember when the week before WD apologies were ringing out and that assumptions had been made.

    I would prefer hearing from one of them on this subject as all I have done is find a rumour and shared it. I don't pretend to have anything else for people in terms or any further info than what I found.

    If someone can change this please do in terms of accuracy.

    Too many army books and codicies on that list at the moment for a normal GW year.

    We had rumours that they would pick up the pace of book releases. Demons should be both.

    Also, November for Eldar is almost certain - Eldar were my first army in 40k, and usually ALL armies I play are updated in November. Necrons, Warriors of Chaos (last time), Eldar (last time), High Elves (last time at least...)
    We both read the rumour, day and night,
    but you read black where I read white.

    Don't forget desolation of Smaug is next december, so I'd say the question marks in december are probably gonna be Hobbit-related. And I can see WoC getting two release waves, Forsaken are still missing a kit, and I can see them moving Dragon Ogres, Trolls, and Ogres into plastic

    We've finally found the secret to BramGaunt's rumors

    Isn't this pretty much a rehash of Hastings' list? Can't seem to find that one at the moment.

    Re: Release schedule rumors

    @Azazyll:
    Almost, hastings list is Dark Angels, Daemons, Tau, High Elves, Eldar, Lizardmen, with no dates given(save that it'll take at least 'til september for everything to be out).
    This one swaps around the order, adds a few waves, a "mystery box"(whatever that is supposed to mean), and gives exact dates.

    niiiiice... what you have here just might be pure gold.... that or fools gold - so damn hard to tell the difference sometimes.
    A complete list of currently depleted stocks and when they'll get back on the market might not sound like much... until you realise that some of these are still metal models. Assuming I'm correct about this, we've just had a look at what will get finecasted next! ...starting this saturday with catachans and... um... does anyone know if the chaos conversion kits are still metal or already finecast?

    GW product codes are broken down pretty easy.

    basically anything except for books starts with 99.

    The next two digits tell you material and form of packing. 12 for example is a multipart plastic kit. 06 is a metal blister. 80 is a finecast clampack. 81 is a finecast box. 11 is a multipart metal kit. 07 is a singlesprue plastic miniature. 23 is tools and Army cases.

    The two digits after are for the game system. 01 is 40k, 02 is Fantasy Battles. I think LotR was/is 14. BFG obviously is 08

    Next two digits are for the army. Example: 99 12 01 01 is the beginning for every Space Marine Plastic set. (read the code as 99, plastic boxed set, 40k, space marines)

    The last three digits are for the individual box, and are a stacking number. Even if a kit replaces a current model, it's assigned the next number in line. To follow the previous example: 99120101025 would be the twentyfifth plastic boxed set for Warhammer 40k's Space Marines - the tactical squad.

    Following this I can tell you that Wraith Guard are going to be several to a box. Ant not everything on the list gets finecasted.

    Edit: Since when were Wraith Guard already available in finecast? I totally missed out on that! Also, several of these items are already available. I sense a disturbance in the force...

    We both read the rumour, day and night,
    but you read black where I read white.
