Hobbit entries on the "list" make sense

So way back in summer we were treated to this http://pastebin.com/9EC3qw3b
and at the time i think it was pretty much panned as fake, now that being said we were really focussing on the 40k entries, but take a look at it again and this time look at the Hobbit entries, Now some of the kits listed like Azog and Elrond for example feel a little bit too accurate once you have seen the movie, i wont go into too much detail as not to spoil the movie for those who havent seen it, but for those of you who have what do you think of the Hobbit entries now? and does it impact on your opinion of the 40k entries in any way?

Also given that deamons are said to be released in febuary and the list contains plastic greater deamon entries is the list just fiction or something else?

to make it easier i have pulled the hobbit list, now im not that familiar with the hobbit as i read it once a long time ago, and i have zero knowledge of the appendix entries in the various books, but if you read this stuff in list form, alot of it makes sense as new releases for 2013 post "an un expected journey" and for release at christmas 2013 intime for the desolation of smaug.
made even more realistic when you consider the cast list for the movie
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1170358/fullcredits#cast
one that jumps out is Elros (Elronds brother) Who happens to be in the cast list for the second movie but wasnt when the list was leaked, the inclusion of Elros in the hobbit is quite weird as he died in the second age as he was made mortal and the first of the Kings of Númenor, so i can only assume Jackson is going to tell his and Elronds back story in the second film as filler or weave it into the plot some how.

I think, as with any rumor, there is some grains of truth in there. The Hobbit stuff does make some sense based on the movie. And while some of the 40K stuff is plausible, much of it feels wrong. Perhaps wish listing on somebody's part.

I can't seem to figure out the document. Like when stuff is suppose to be release. If someone can give me a bit more information on the document, like when it predicts what to be release and how much of it has been proven true (and/or false). Aside from that glad to see that this rumor wasn't forgotten if it has some truth to it.

Haven't bothered to see the film yet and haven't heard of the new releases you mention BK. Could you elaborate?

The rumour was that it was supposed to be a list of the new kits which are due to go into production, probably for around the 2nd half of 2013... hence no Dark Angels etc that we're expecting any time now, but Tau and Eldar both feature, who are rumoured for release later on in 2013. Also lots of stuff that looks like smaller factions - Kroot, possibly Genestealer Cultists, Arbites - which would fit into the idea that was doing the rounds that an allies codex might be coming out.

A lot of people wrote it off as a fake straight away, but if it is then it's an elaborate one... we probably wont really know any more unless some of these kits start turning up.

We know that GW has seen it and denied it, so if it is real, the question is how are they going to alter their schedule/models/titles to differ from the list so that the released are not predictable?

Tu'Shan, Agemman, SM "Gale Claw" supremacy fighter, Sky Shatter cannon, Eldar xentarchs(whatever they are), plastic noise marines, Cypher, and the various Imperial Agents all look very interesting now in light of the Hobbit stuff actually making sense now I've seen the film (thought it was a bit meh, tbh).

For those who have not seen the list here it is with all the Hobbit stuff removed as that's in the first post.
