Default The Rumor Mill.

Post any of your 40k rumors here. Whether it be from a gaming shop, GW employees themselves, or GT heresay. I'm sure this thread will be replaced by either a sticky or a full-blown category, but for now give us your confidential stuff here! I'll try to keep a steady flow of rumors as well.

Dark Eldar are not being removed from the game. That rumour, originating from the 40Kforums site, I believe, was from a person much sillier than yourself, and was about as reliable as a political pledge in a modern democratic environment.

Ratlings are not going to be taken off the shelves, and I have no idea where you got this from.

Orks, much less than two years, are the very next codex to be updated. They will have many new plastic troops.

Necrons are going to be updated, as is every army. It's just not known specifically which those will be beyond Dark Angels and Orks.

Moderators, since one of their duties is to enforce the use of language in their forum, are expected to be able to use said language properly.

Being a person inside a Games Workshop is even worse a qualification than working at Games Workshop, and their workers usually don't have the slightest clue of what they're going on about. Most of the good rumours come from contacts in the GW offices, which I don't think anyone here has.

Smiley, in regards to that moderator point, you aren't being punished for being illiterate if you aren't made a moderator. If you can't understand Keynesian economics, for example, you'd hardly be hired as a university economics lecturer. The principle here is the same.

The ramblings on warseer from the more reliable individuals (of the disgruntled GW employee sort, or from those who took some pictures or talked to people at a games day) say that the Dark Angels are due up in February, and GW is planning on another "Orktober" but we'll see. The summer campaign is for Fantasy, so the reason we probably won't see Orks before October-ish will be due to the focus on that.

Dark Eldar are absolutely not being removed from the game, nor are the ratlings being pulled. A lot of experienced players have Dark Eldar armies. GW doesn't stock them in the stores because they know they're such ugly models for the most part that they wouldn't sell next to the newest Eldar sculpts, for example. Those of us who've been at this long enough know, respect, and in most cases fear a Dark Eldar army, and GW wouldn't dream of offending its most devoted players again the way they did when they nixed squats and Chaos Dwarfs for Fantasy (admittedly, I don't see the big problem with dropping squats, but plenty of folks did.)

Chaos is supposedly going to be broken up into two seperate books-- the first for the Chaos Space Marine Legions, and the second for Lost and the Damned-esque units such as Traitor Guard, mutants, daemon spawn, and the like. The two books are supposed to be usable both individually and together, much as the Beasts of Chaos and Hordes of Chaos books are for Fantasy.

IN THE US? ASK ME HOW TO GET 10% OFF GAMES WORKSHOP PRODUCTS!

Actually for all intents and purposes the Chaos Dwarf 'Ravening Hordes' list is still as legal as anything else and they still are hinting that a new book will rear its rather less than tall hatted head in the future (since they're stearing away from the big hats for the evil dwarves, see Hellcannon)

Uber, if it really is a problem, im sure the mods will fix it. They don't need you to point it out. You need to relax, man. This is the internet, remember? Not all can be expected to type their messages as theey were college essays. Its shorthand, slang, net-talk, l33tspeak! Let it be.

And he wrote that in response the smiley saying he wants to be a Mod. Uber was just pointing out that most people arn't going to choose a person to be a Mod if they can't spell and use proper grammar at least 70% of the time.



My rumors? More like speculation, but here we go:

Orks in the fall. BA in the spring '08, followed by DE, then SW. BA will have to buy their DC, but hopefully its in a sort of detachment sort of way (something I stole from B&C. When it comes back up, I'll find it).

Thats what I think, anyways.
