Default Upcoming releases/updates?

So what is the concensus now? Are Necrons coming out this year, next year, or not sure anymore? Also, are Tau getting an update soon, or was that just total rumour? Is SoB still in line for an update early next year?

Very interested in all of these, Tau and Necrons especially as they are both collecting dust on my shelf, but each day there seems to be conflicting information coming out. Anyone mind clearing it up with the most up to date rumours?

Cheers.

I believe the time frame is Grey knights-tomb kings-tyranid second wave-dark eldar second wave-necron leaked codex-necron models shown-necrons released-everyone complains that matt ward killed the fluff-necrons become a top tier army-necron hype goes down-grey knight second wave-necron second wave.

Or you could list it down in a less cluttered manner.
As far as iv read it:
Grey Knights this sat
Tomb Kings
Possible 40k flyers release in summer
either Necrons or Tau (i bet Necrons as Tomb Kings are been released this year)
Not sure after that possible 2nd waves, Grey Knights, Space Wolves, Tyranids.
I'll Hazard a guess and say tau early next year.
This is a personal hope, Chaos Marines next year.

Necrons and Tau but also Sisters of Battle should all have a new codex.
Personally i think SoB might be pushed to next Edition.
I hope they give all amries an update, including Dark Angels (which is very unlikely, and it is said there'll be an updated DA codex soon ?)

in any case, i just spent a SHITLOAD of money on all kinds of GK stuff, including ForgeWorld stuff, and i'm nowhere near done, but that'll come in the next few months.
Painting is a different matter, since i don't like the painting...

And as we all know;If it ain't Dutch...It ain't Much !

I would put money on seeing Witch Hunters before Tau.

folks you need to look at the release pattern how they put out these codexes.

Its alway imperial then non imperial

SoBs will more than likely get an update in between necrons and tau.
