40K Rumors: A Whiff of WAAAGH

There’s a little murmur out there on the Greenskins 40K fans from a reliable rumormonger.  Check out the latest:

For years and years going back to the heyday of Warseer, when 75Hastings69 says something is coming soon, you could take it to the bank.

The old rumormeister doesn’t drop stuff into the rumorsphere often, so when he does – pay attention.  Here’s what we dropped last week on DISQUS:

 

Thoughts

GW has said just this weekend at NOVA that 8 of the promised 10 codexes have been officially unveiled and will be be here by November.

That leaves 2 unaccounted for in December…

Is that a faint WAAAGH I hear in the holidays snows?

 

~What do you most want to see in a new Ork Codex?

 

 

  • Randy Randalman

    Hastings hasn’t been accurate about anything for years.

    • thereturnofsuppuppers

      except all the times he has been…

      • ZeeLobby

        Lol. Hastings told us all about primaris way before they were a thing. Randy is just a salty old man.

        • thereturnofsuppuppers

          Randy is a strange one, that is for certain.

          I almost believe GW would do well employing him as a measure for community reaction.

          Idiotic, entitled and incomprehensibly batty.

    • Arthfael

      Hastings has admitted making mistakes, but he is the longest standing, most accurate rumour source on anything GW.

  • Deacon Ix

    Soon = before 9th Ed is released?

    • SonoftheMountain

      No Sisters will be released right before 9th drops

      • Atogrim

        Lies! Nest is the new squats codex!

  • phobosftw

    Are the smelly greenskins still grown from fungi- pls someone fill me in on the current ork lore?

    • Rita-Audrey Jones

      There’s none.

      • phobosftw

        I like this response – very orky.

    • I_am_Alpharius

      Yes. Orks still spread Spores off their bodies as they go round fightn’. If those spores reach a suitable growing habitat (typically dark and dank i.e. like fungi) then they grow into the plethora of ork genera there are; from a lowly Grot, to Boyz, to Mek Boyz, to the next Warbosses etc…

  • Prasert Boriboonsongsin

    I think Ork, Necron and Dark eldar codex won’t be released this year. Because they was mentioned in Chapter Approved that they will be updated in the book.

  • Shadowstrife

    Soon… What he means here is an updated codex, some re-boxes, and zero new models.

  • Chet Atkinson

    Surely Ghazghkull Thraka will get a new model – one that is much bigger than the old one to account for his extra coupla hundred years of growing?

    • ZeeLobby

      He’ll be imperial knight action figure sized.

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      Don’t forget, he’s probably going to go back to the half-Daemon world of Armageddon, so that should provide him with endless fun

  • I_am_Alpharius

    It’s pot luck for these last two codex’s before xmas. It’s a reasonable bet that the final two will be one Imperial and one Xenos, but is could just as easily be one Chaos and one Xenos. Personally, I’m edging my bets on one to be the Thousand Sons, they don’t drastically need any models due to recent releases and, to a degree, Chaos SM are sorted for a fair while. The second, I was thinking T’au Empire, but Space Orks (Astra Orks?)> are just as likely; both have alot kits which are reasonable new and broadly don’t need much doing (yes I know old Track and Buggy need a redo). Now I think about it Orks could make more sense, since T’au have plenty of scope to add a new Alien auxiliary unit or two, which I’m sure is tempting for the studio to explore.

    • Nostok

      They could get the wartrak and buggy out of the same kit if they tried.

      • I_am_Alpharius

        For sure, they could easily. However, at this point the units are a little bit of hangers on. Frankly, I reckon, there is a good chance the studio will take the chance to formally drop them from the codex entirely. Like a bunch of SM units (e.g. LR Terminus, the WHW command vehicles ect…) and just leave them in the Index books for prosperity.

        • euansmith

          But Buggies offer Ork players the best way to give up First Blood, to let their opponents feel they achieved something before being buried in a tsunami of green. 😉

  • euansmith

    Plastic Sisters confirmed!

    • Sam Smith

      You couldn’t be more wrong. He’s obviously confirming the return of the squats..

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    WAAAGHMAS iz real, boyz!

    • euansmith

      WAARGH I wunt four WAAAGHMAS iz WAAAAAAAAGH!

  • William Crouse

    Gorkamorka!?

  • Doug Olson

    Plastic. New. Buggies

    • SonoftheMountain

      DEFF. KOPTAS!!!!!!

  • The Lost One

    Hoping for new boyz and nobs but I’m doubting that they will redo those models since they are already plastic

  • LankTank

    Multipart buggy/wartrakk kit then im in heaven

  • Jason Bingham

    GW themselves also said all over FB within the past 30-60 days that, and I quote, “Thousand Sons are getting their own Codex very very soon.” but here we have actual info from Nova on the next codexes and I’m like ehhhhh. Personally, I expect something like Orks in December. But specifically taking the time to mention TS and DG not being in codex CSM and then doing Orks or something instead is funny to me. Not bitching, just laughin
