40K Rumors: Da Schedule – Fasten Your Seatbelt!

May 12 2014

It’s been quite the quiet few few weeks for 40K players with 3 weeks of hobby tools and Wood Elves. Here’s your reward:

The latest scuttlebutt schedule looks like this taking us into July:

Late May – Warhammer 40,000 7th Edition
Look for a 2 week release window with the majority of releases on week 1 (May 24th).
Look for all the standard stuff we’ve grown to expect like the rulebook, templates, psychic cards, mission cards, etc.  Week 2 will have a teensy amount of followup products.

June – Orks
This is described as a beefy 3-week release window like we saw with Astra Militarum.  Look for the Codex and at least 5 new kits (including both new double and triple combo kits, and clampack HQs), and psychic cards.  There will be at least 3 new units introduced and a lot of old Orks models are going away forever as the codex shifts to almost all plastic in the wake of the new releases.

This takes us deep into the June, and look to round out the month with a 1 week break from 40K.  could be WFB, Hobbit, or even Citadel hobby stuff.

Get your wallet ready.  It’s gonna be a very busy 5 weeks.
