    Details on Eldar, Tzeentch & Dark Angels

    Next 3 releases are still Eldar, DA, Tzeentch.

    I've now heard the DA Tac. Squad isn't coming with this release. (Which in no way means the release list has changed, the release dates do NOT change. If isn't coming it simply isn't coming.)

    The Chaplain I heard about is also apparently going to be released separately rather than in a box set as I thought originally.

    It was specifically titled a "Interrogator Chaplain" rather than just DA Chaplain ala the Blood Angel Libarian.

    So as far as I know the release will just be a new Chaplain and Codex.

    Release date May.
    I heard it was a full new dex with a spotlight on the 5 major Craftworlds and some formations to represent some of their battle tactics. Whether the Craftworlds themselves will get anymore rules than that I don't know.

    I heard new DA dex originally, but since this new tidbit I'm not 100%. I'm going to keep digging for new info.

    Space Marines are one of the two "standard old school" codices that will be a full update this year.

    The codex update itself is more of a minor refresh to bring it into alignment with the current edition design trends.

    Minis coming are:

    - Assault Marines box refresh/update

    - New Chaplain (probably plastic)

    expansion one and two? are we talking books like escalation, or the rumoured Assassins and Heresy boxed sets for example? so much scope.

    Dark angels vs chaos space marines still seems like an odd choice.

    Agreed, what with Dark Vengeance already and the expansion sets for that I can't see what purpose yet another box set on the same theme would serve, especially when there's so many other factions that would benefit from being in a combo army deal box. Ad Mech vs Eldar for example would be far more interesting and likely sell better. I know I'd buy it.
    Either there is life in the universe more intelligent than us, or we are the most intelligent form of life in the universe. Either way, it's a worrying thought!

    It's a bit odd that they just have "Warhammer content" while being so specific on what the 40K content is. Makes me a touch concerned for WFB.

    maybe it is some sort of rebox again, maybe even just a new box design or something.

    Mmmm possible, but either way it still sounds like a missed opportunity. They're finally bringing out AdMech after decades of them being missing from 40k forces and there's no HQ model in the initial lot of releases (and certainly a desire for one amongst the playerbase). Put a character model Skitarii in a box with a couple units vs Eldar (due out soon) with them having a character model Autarch and a couple units of some sort and I think that's a box that would sell very well.

    I certain agree it doesn't seem like a great idea. we shall have to see, perhaps not too long to wait to find out.

    "It's a bit odd that they just have "Warhammer content" while being so specific on what the 40K content is. Makes me a touch concerned for WFB."

    I think it's just a sign of how ill-developed the rumourmill is for WHFB compared to 40,000. A lot of people go hunting for juicy 40k nuggets and don't know/don't care about the WHFB stuff so much.

    (This isn't a criticism, just how it seems to be.)
