Rumors brought to the community by www.cargad.com (Spanish site)
Ok guys, this one has been making the rounds today so here it is. I will spare you the horrific babelfish translations and give you the basics as well as what we are hearing.
2009 Warhammer 40k & Fantasy
-April: Imperial Guard (we hear May)
-May: Fantasy Empire 2nd Wave (Empire Steam Tank, Greatswords, “Military Altar”) (we hear June, and have no indication of a “Military Altar”)
-July: Planetstrike (looks like its coming at LONG last)
-September: Space Hulk (with all new modern plastic termys, genestealers…the whole 9 yards) (we have no confirmation on this)
-October: Skaven (we hear August)
-November: An unnamed marine chapter (we hear Space Wolves)
2010 Warhammer 40k & Fantasy
Fantasy Candidates: Khemri…
40k Candidates: Tyranids, Blood Angels (possibly following on the coat-tails of Space Hulk), Necrons, Tau, Dark Eldar are reported to be almost finished, but pushed off due to their low interest level.
~EXTREME CAVEATS on some of this stuff guys. I would not read anything into any of the 2010 stuff for example as that is way,way far off. Also, we have seen confirmed release dates sent to retailers that don’t exactly match these dates but overall match the releases.
The things to focus on are the near term releases such as IG, Planetstrike!!!!, and Skaven. We here at BoLS seem pretty confident of the Space Wolves for late this year. Once again, the real eye opener here is mention of Space Hulk, which would be great, but I will believe it when I see it. I’m not buying the Dark Eldar pushback either.
Have at it guys!
