40K / WFB: GW Schedule – Q2-3
There is a lot of stuff headed our way for WFB and 40K. Here’s the latest product info doing the rounds:
OK, this is a schedule put out yesterday by Lords of War (Facebook).
Upcoming 40k products (in order of release)
– Skitarii Codex
– Adeptus Mechanicus Codex
– Craftworld Eldar Codex (following AdMech)
– Space Marines Codex (in Summer)
– Raven Guard vs Tau set (before the Tau book)
– Tau Codex
A few more tidbits about the aforementioned releases
“After Admech it will be codex Craftworld: Eldar. Plastic jetbikes and Artach.”
“Don’t know about a Raven Guard supplement but Adeptus Astartes: Space Marines will release this summer. “
OK, now we have to assign this a reliability rating of: Possible. Lords of War DOES have a good track record, but some of that info is directly contradicted by other solid rumormongers.
In particular, other sources have told BoLS that an Eldar Codex is not in the cards for this year, and to only look for Space Marines and Tau Empire books to get redone. All other codices this year are to be new niche armies such as Harlequins, Mechanicus and one other (several candidates are mentioned).
Eldar however are said to be getting new units this year, but are said to recieve them as part of a non-codex release. So either we would be looking at a standalone White Dwarf release (which is rare, but has happened), or look for the Eldar to be participants in one of the 40K campaign books like last year’s Shield of Baal.
Finally, don’t forget to pencil in WFB 9th for June, so it would appear that GW is going to pair the new edition with Space Marines in the same quarter. Then of course there is plastic 30K, which IS COMING after the summer, but there is conflicting chatter on when.
In any case, we wanted to being you all up to speed with the rumorshere out there and tell you all to fasten your seatbelts, GW’s releases are clearly not slowing down.
~Which of those releases are you most excited about?
