GW Mystery: What is the BIG NEWS?

space marine stormcast eternal

Nottingham has something BIG under wraps for tomorrow.  What could it be? Let’s go over the usual suspects.

First of all, Saturday will be an interesting day.  Here’s GW’s tease for the weekend:

 

We’ll keep you informed so check back tomorrow morning to see what’s up.

The most likely suspects are:

Age of Sigmar Aelfs

We’ve been seeing a lot if teasers of late and everyone is saying to look for the reimagined Aelfs to be coming after the Kharadron Overlords float out of the news.

Adeptus Titanicus

There is still contradictory chatter of exactly when this is arriving, but a LOT of people can’t wait for Adeptus titanicus to return after years of absence.

Warhammer 40,000 8th Edition

The one that will suck all the air out of the industry for months – 40K new edition. We’ve been hearing rumors for over a year and slowy but surely we can feel its approach. Maybe GW will finally admit it’s almost here.

General’s Handbook 2.0

GW said we can expect an annual General’s handbook with updated points and new goodies to keep the game fresh. Perhaps it’s time is now.

 

Or something completely out of left field… like t-shirts now being available in XXXL. That would big “BIG NEWS” 🙂

~What do you most want to see tomorrow?

 

  • YetAnotherFacelessMan

    Calling it now: Zoat-riding Chaos Squats of Malal.

    • Matthew Pomeroy

      You sir, are awesome!

    • Wow…….lots of older references there. Well played sir

    • Darth Bumbles

      PLASTIC zoat-riding Chaos Squats of Malal, deploying from plastic plastic thunderhawks.

  • Zachary A. Cadena

    Titanicus, already dropped lots of hint on it already. Thats my guess. Heard absolutely zilch on AOS Aelfs, but who knows, could be surprised.

    • I REALLY hope its Titanicus! Like more than any other thing from GW I want this!!

  • piglette

    Stormcast Eternals are now a 40k faction! Girlyman has enlisted the help of some Librarians to summon them from the AoS universe! They function like marines, only even MOAR elite and special. If you thought Grey Knights or Custodes were special snowflakes, just wait until you field your Stormcast Eternals!

    • Vayle

      Sigmarines!

    • Old zogwort

      Even better they finally confirm that AoS all takes part in a small portion of the choas realm inside the 40k universe.

    • ledha

      Have you read any AOS book ? Unlike space marines, who can destroy a whole army while being only 10, stormcast eternals die nearly as much as the imperial guard and suffer crushing defeats very frequently. They are the poster boy, but are absolutely not depicted as special mary sue invincible snowflakes

      • piglette

        Ah yes, but that just goes to show you the relative power levels between the universes, prompting many grognards to debate further hypothetical crossovers.

  • BaronSnakPak

    Another production run of SW Armageddon.

    • Bakvrad

      Same people as the last time get them boxed ^^

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      It will be the official announcement of the Shadow Wars rulebook I reckon.

  • neshta

    If it is aelves I will die. DIE I say!

    • BaronSnakPak

      Youll probably still be alive after the announcement, I really doubt they’ll show off a new AoS army right in the middle of the Kharadron release month. they’d risk potentially losing sales due to people wanting to wait for the Aelves.

      • luke snell

        yeah, no way they are piggybacking big faction releases, one on top of another.

    • dave long island

      We’re gonna hold you to that… lol

    • Jason C

      Dibs on your stuff. This is official notice to all that DIBS HAS BEEN CALLED.

    • Sam Nolton

      Die…in a good way, like out of happiness? Or in an angry way?

  • pokemastercube .

    well as no one has said it so far i will say it to get it out of the way: sisters of battle in plastic

    • Hendrik Booraem VI

      You just reset the clock. AGAIN.

      • Solax636

        The Acolyte hunched over the cogitator staring at the small screen that illuminated his face, his lips silently forming words as he read them from the screen. The only sounds in the room were the low level hum of the other machines and the occasional click and whirr as the next set of text scrolled onto the screen.
        He stopped his silent narration mid sentence and with a tired expression squeezed his eyes shut while pressing his fingers to his temple in a a slow and circular motion.
        “My lord.” he said aloud.
        “Yes?” came a voice from the darkness behind him.
        “Another one my lord.” The acolyte replied in a tired tone.
        “Very well, dispatch the coordinates to the kill team and reset the clock.”
        His cogitator hummed as his practised hands clacked across his stations interface and sent the offenders details to the kill team that was even now gearing up. With a sigh his hand reached across to a well worn button and depressed it. A flurry of clacks emanated from the front of the room where a large chrono display was reset to 00:00.
        He sighed as the clock started to once again count. 00:01, 00:02… 😉 – quote from SpikeySam on reddit

  • memitchell

    I already know, I bought a box today…

    Squatdron Overlords!

  • Herkamer63

    $10 off at Macy’s!

  • Douglas Burton

    Whatever it is, it’s already sold out not to be remade.

    • WhenDidVicesBecomeVirtues

      And on ebay for 30x the msrp!

    • David Leimbach

      Get your ticket to nottingham booked now just in case.

  • MechBattler

    Games Workshop has been bought out by Starbucks.
    All locations are being remodeled into cafes.
    All red shirts are being retrained as baristas.
    Those who can’t make coffee are being shipped to the fields to work until they drop.

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      Or its merging with Asmodee

      • Adam Murray

        GW has merged with privateer press and all the warmahordes stuff is getting ported into the mortal realms directly.

      • BaboonKing

        As much as I’m concerned about Asmodee absorving every single tabletop company under the sun, like a huge bloated black hole, this at least would mean we could finally get the expansions that were in the works for the GW licensed FFG games. Damn, but I wish we had the Tyranids expansion for Forbidden Stars…

  • Ravingbantha

    Its gonna be yuge

  • 3dken

    Nah, it’s probably just a re-re-re-release of Space Hulk 3rd Edition!

  • Mr_Pickles

    “Hey guys, we know you loved ‘Finecast’, so we’re bringing it back!”

  • Tom Fägrell

    The word BIG kinda hints Titanicus, but who knows.

    • Yeah I thought that too. I would be the happiest geek if it was

  • Joel Eddy

    GHB 2.0, because that’s when South Coast will have kicked off and they will be using new rules from it… maybe?

  • Jim Morr

    Warmaster 3.0 scaled for 28mm on base of Hail caesar rules… Just kidding

  • Old zogwort

    SW Armageddon is also getting a up scaled version in the form of a specialist game called 40k 2.0 .

  • spla5hmummy

    Plastic thunderhawk! The new resin one is obviously just for those who prefer resin, because we know they exist.

  • Brad Parks

    It’s an announcement that they’re going to make an announcement at Warhammer Fest.

  • Sean Schoonmaker

    While I want it to be Titanicus, that’s a Forgeworld game, and this would be an odd time to announce it.

  • Laurence J Sinclair

    Plastic Sisters. If they are putting the rules for them in the new Shadow War book, they’ll put in pictures of the new stuff, so GW will announce them before everyone sees them in the book.

    • Adrien Fowl

      If only you were right!

  • Tanith Magna

    Is Plastic Sisters of Battle Thunderhawk XD

  • euansmith

    Stormcast Eternal Knight Titanor

  • Wonderdog

    I’d be super happy with 8th ed or Adeptus Titanicus tbh.

  • Well it isn’t Shadow Wars rulebook as that is already out an hour and a half before the 2pm announcement

  • Vepr

    Space marines will now be 3 to a box with a slight price jump to represent the incredible new boxes they come in. All other armies are being made slightly smaller to represent true scale space marines and your current xeno army is no longer valid for anything. Those caught using false scale xeno armies will be summarily executed

  • Marc Berry

    It’s the new edition of 40k! It’s up on the go Facebook page.

  • BaronSnakPak
  • Josh Chestnut

    Well, now we know. https://warhammer40000.com/

    P.S. An official faq on the first day they announce the new edition? What kind of GW is this?!?

    https://warhammer40000.gw-hub.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2017/04/New-Edition-of-40K-FAQ.pdf

  • Luca Lacchini

    New WH40K edition.
    From the FAQ, I’m interested.
