Sifting through the GW 2012 release schedule rumors


 (Another image from my new favorite artist Nic Giacondino)

I hate just posting rumors from different forums without doing any research.  There is so much crap out there and with one of the better known rumor mongers having come out and admitted he made it all up, you just don't know who to trust.

But there was one BoLS user, Straightsilver, who posted the following in response to another rumor (which the poster admitted had yet to prove reliable!).  Straightsilver's post seems to sum up the latest rumors we have seen, which have pretty much eliminated any Black Templar release in 2012.  Dark Angels seem to be the flavor of the moment, and I think what he posted makes sense.  Straightsilver's comments are on BoLS here or you just read here!

Straightsilver:

I may live to regret this, but there will be no Eldar release in 2012.

They are still a long way off, at least a year away from what I have been told.


of course now I have said that I will probably be proved wrong, but I am 99% sure they won't be this year.


Tau on the other hand are a strong contender, although they have had models ready to go for over a year and still haven't shown up.


2012 looks like this as far as I know:


February: Nids Wave

March: Necron Wave

June: Chaos Legions

July: 6th Edition boxed ste (featuring Dark Angels and Chaos)
August: Codex Dark Angels

There are no signs of any other Codex releases, there may be waves for other armies.


Q4 this year will be dominated by the Hobbit so expect Q2 and Q3 to be 40K centric, but don't expect too much.


Then Q1 2013 will be more Hobbit, Q2 2013 may see a new Codex but it's more likely to be wave releases, so if Eldar or Tau were coming I would say Q3.


Of course I may be wrong, but these are the indications I have been told.


Then again, one of those sources said Tau were due before Necrons, so who knows....

Thankyou for sharing... seems like Games Workshop's crack down on rumour leaks is working. Two months ago it was considered a solid rumor that Black Templars were due for an update in 2012. Means more time for me to add to the lead mountain... by the time Black Templars actually get updated the Missus will tell me to paint something before I get new toys. Might be a blessing in disguise.
