It’s been 3 months to the day – and the Plastic Horus Heresy rumors are coming back! Lets catch you up:
First off, today’s tidbit, which lines up pretty well with where we left off in Q2:
via “Mikhael” 7-15-2015
Horus Heresy plastic boxed set is coming and is scheduled for November 2015
via “Pathwalker” 7-15-2015
Hobbit and all LotR stock will be off the shelves and direct only, they’re replacing it with A Horus heresy game, but won’t compete with 40k directly. Horus Heresy is coming for Christmas.
And let’s go back a little and refresh everyone’s memory with where we left off: Basically if you remember there was a large amount of trustworthy rumormongers saying the plastic Horus Heresy set was coming, and everyone assumed it was going to early in the year before Age of Sigmar. But right before the rumors went dark, multiple reliable sources said it would late in the year after the Age of Sigmar release window.

Regarding scheduling of Horus Heresy Plastics
Plastic HH marks of armor in May? You’re way off!

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.
~I’ve got my fingers crossed – how about you?
