When you combine the best most accurate pair of Warhammer 40,000 rumormongers in a single day – EVERYONE BETTER LISTEN:

Yes indeed, but let’s take it a bit further. Let’s imagine creating a standalone game, which is only available for say 6 months, BUT then we’ll make the models from it available as individual box sets for something we are definitely going to support, something that might take up empty shelf space in stores. Lets ALSO then imagine we then release another standalone game, again limited to so many months, then we make the models from that set available for another range we support…

…both are something new, the first historical (so that’s why I was linking it with the old), the second current (i.e. 40k) again new, but based on something existing AND something old. I’m sorry if that’s made it worse!!!

The scale is the same, no epic scale, no inquisitor scale.

Right guys there are several separate rumours that folks are getting mixed up. So I’ll at least split it up a little for you. THIS IS NOT RELEASE ORDER, just to help separate the rumours. IT ALSO ISN’T A FULL LIST OF THIS YEARS 40K RELEASES, in fact some of these may be early next year. NONE OF THESE ARE WFB BASED.

Admech Codex & models (full release)
**** Codex & models (Harelquin sized release already mentioned on thread)
**** Codex & models (Harelquin sized release already mentioned on thread)
HH Standalone box game, on sale for a few months, then models become part of 30k range.
Assassins Standalone box game, on sale for a few months, then models become part of the 40k range.

I haven’t heard anything about mark 9 armour so don’t associate it with any of the above.


I mean Harlequin sized as in number of kits, i.e. a few characters, a troops kit, a larger kit and a transport. Or thereabouts 🙂 One kind of has a main codex, kind of, and it’s been mentioned on this very thread. The other has also been mentioned on another thread, the one that got moved for not having any news or rumours in…. even though it actually contained quite a bit. In fact I suppose you might say the 2nd has a main codex too 🙂 (kind of)

I think there’s a misunderstanding here. BOTH new standalone games will have their model contents released. The first being HH, will see models released as part of the 30k range. The 2nd boxed game models will be released as part of 40k range, part that is currently only available in finecast and not deathwatch before anyone says it again.

I have heard that there might be a plastic GD, plastic daemons, and plastic CSM kit for a certain god at some point later this year (and no it’s not Khorne!)

I never mentioned May
I never mentioned “Nerd rage”
I was only talking about the new space marines.
I said it was going to cause a “**** storm” ….
I simply meant it was ‘big news’ and it was going to cause a lot of … ‘excitement’ 🙂 on the 40K boards.
I did not intend to cause any panic.


It would seem duffybear heard a rumour about new space marines. He naturally assumed these were what came next …. mark 9
However it did not occur to him that what his rumour was about was what came before …..

I think these rumours ARE part of the same thing.

I think Duffy’s rumours are about the new space marines for THIS …. for 30K
So that would make it not mark 9 but something like Mark 3 / Mark 4 ? armour. (Or whatever armour it was 30K …someone will have to help me out with that)

The armour is a simpler, earlier version of the power armour we all know and love.
It looks a bit like something Tony Stark might have knocked up in the desert.


And there you have it folks:


The BIG MYSTERY is a 30K Boxed set in plastic (with a new mk of Heresy armor).

Another Assassin based standalone box-game is coming.
