Rumors: The Rumor Section is gathered from the web and is not in any way information we receive from  any manufacturer nor is it necessarily accurate. This section of the podcast is intended for entertainment purposes only.

  • Rumors indicate that there will be several weeks of Fantasy releases for Age of Sigmar, so 40k will get a chance to get caught up on everything and settle a bit.
  • Age of Sigmar sounds pretty bad ass, actually. Old miniatures will still be viable, but all new minis will come on round bases.
    • Rebranding the game. Will have new rules for all the old minis. The starter box has extremely simple rules, only 4 pages long aimed at getting new players excited about Fantasy and make it easy to become immersed.
    • Custom army cases for the release, one for chaos, the other for Sigmar, plus some gold spray, too.
    • The “good guys” are called Stormcast Eternals, and the chaos forces are Warriors of Khorne.
    • Rumored to be about $120
    • Rules to be offered for free! Wow, big change for old GW.
    • All units to get “Warscrolls.” which are the equivalent of Dataslates in 40k, which will be free downloads.
    • Rumors of Formations to be coming in the future, too.
    • Units can all skirmish, but there are benefits to ranking up.
