well, i kinda hope that they dont come out with 9th edition next year, I dont want to spend another 75 bucks on a new rulebook. brets and tomb kings would be sweet though, both armies need it.

2014 at the earliest, with the LotR/hobbit opening up, maybe 2016 at the latest.

2014 would keep to the established 4 year plan, but as vaz said we have Hobbit to contend with so 2015 is more likely, or 2016 at a stretch seen as the films are now a trilogy so will have more content.

i have to agree that tomb kings would be a great idea for a starter set, easy to paint and really need the core troops updating, but i also think they are too delicate in terms of models for a box set, but i suppose some fancy armour and more rags and it could work.
i dont see wood elves ever making it into the set, and that army really needs some serious work doing to it to bring it up to the same standard as the other armys in the range.

So did High Elves ;). Which they fixed by... not having
any of the core units.

To be fair, Dwarfs and Empire are all the same in appearance; a cannon thrown in seperates it a bit, but they are essentially differently armed versions of the same model. Same with goblins.

High Elves added In all sorts of flavour - platemail greatswords, reaver knight scouts, marines, griffon.

Same with the Skaven.

Only wood elves, dark elves and chaos warriors and daemons have similarly differentiating models.

Wood Elves; Eagle/Stag Lord/Mage, Branchwraith/Treeman/Treeman ancient, Spirit "Swarms" (introduce a new unit like cultists from DV), Glade Guard, Warhawk Riders

Chaos Warriors; Mounted Champion, Knight bodyguard, Marauder Tribes, Chaos Warhounds, some Forsaken models and perhaps a Warshrine, or even some Dragon Ogres to give some monstrous infantry.

Ruleswise; when did GW care about Rules for starter sets? Island of Blood doesnt have a legal army between it so far.

Thing is. The starter set, any starter set, is grom GW's point of view definitely not a chance to update models.

D'you really think GW want you to buy starter kits (70+ models for 60) or regiment boxes (10 models for 20-30).

Case in point: GW made plastic kits for High Elf Phoenix Guard and White Lions. They did NOT release a kit for Swordmasters - since they are in the Island of Blood.

As a general thing - if you're hoping for a model to get a propper multi-part plastic kit, then you should be hoping that model is NOT part of a starter kit.

On the other hand, if you want a ton of a model that looks awesome, but you don't care about limited poses, then you'll be hoping it is in the starter. Have you seen my 56 High Elf Swordmasters?

If, for example, TK were in the 9th ed kit - that'd mean they would be stuck with the current, ghastly skellingtons until the start of 10th edition. No way GW would drop tens of thousands on a new kit which no-one will buy because Starter Kit skellies are 10 for 10 on ebay.

However, those starter kit skellies would no doubt be balls-out awesome looking.

I'm guessing 2014, 2015 seems very possible. Eighth seems to be in a good position right now and, since the Hobbit is coming I could fully see GW not rocking the WFB boat.

B&K is hoping the complete opposite of the rest of us then ;)
