Templar rumours may be thin on the ground, but, "they are there if you look for them"
as will the templars themselves be, soon enough

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

I certainly cannot wait for the second quarter of the year if this is true. I'll buy the starter set no problem since it's been said a lot that it'll be Chaos and Eldar in the starter set. And how convenient is it that I already play both armies? I've always wanted to play Templars too, but I really don't hope it suffers the same fate as the Blood Angels codex. Deep striking Land Raiders are not my favorite.

Ill take that as a confirmation on the 1st bullet on that release plan in Feb/March

Sadly that also means that I will have to wait longer for anything worth buying

I kinda 1/2 expect a WD codex or a PDF on the website for the Templar's, bringing the units in-line with the current SM codex's and fixing the rules so they work better with the changes they will be makeing to the system for 6th edd.

This smaller update could be done at the same time as Vampire Counts, hence how they can fit all the stuff in one year

Don't forget, next year will also have at least one month, if not two dedicated to the Hobbit release...

I wonder how much of LoTR/WotR is going to get boosted via The Hobbit?

On the topic of "Starter Box" for 6th, It'll be "Space Marines Vs X"

I'd stake my life upon that,

- Marines make up the largest Percent of Sales (Including 40k/WHFB/LoTR)
- Its A Starter/Introduction box, Not necessarily for changing from 5th to 6th, but for NEW PEOPLE, Marines will always get a push for beginners as they can be a simple army to start with*

Just my 2pence.

*NB. This is ment with NO discredit to marine players, I know you tend to get the brunt of it for army choices, I simply mean that for someone who Has never played a Tabletop Wargame, let alone WH40k, they are a good Middle of the Road army, which can later be developed into a specific force depending on your play style (i.e. Prefer assualt, Prefer sitting back and firing/Firebases etc).

Your statement is very true, and myself personally don't see why it wouldn't be a Loyalist army of any kind in the stater set, but there has been a lot of stuff in the last couple months about it NOT being a Loyalist army. Maybe GW wants players to start playing Chaos or Eldar, for example. Perhaps the storyline advanced so much that this edition could be focused around any of them? Who knows.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but essentially SM are probably the most played army - certainly from gaming clubs i've attended and product focus. Maybe they want people to buy other armies?

I'm not insulting non-SM players here, I mainly play Eldar ;) Just started picking up an SM army

the hobbit will be a Christmas blockbuster just like its 3 predecessors and im fairly confident that GW will release its stuff to cash in on that fact too.

summer next year is 40k
