More random conjecture for the rumour mill

Warhammer World have put up some new decorations in the museum. They are cabinet-sized backdrops that cover the mirrors at the back of the display cabinets. They are currently only in three cabinets - the Necrons, the Orks and the Tyranids.

Now this could be simply because they were the first printed, or they were done first because the cabinets are presently mostly empty (except the necron one). Or it could be because the schedule has 'nids first, Orks next.

You can make of this what you like, I'm just reporting what I saw today. I'd post the pic I took, but my phone hates Photobucket and I don't have desktop access at present.

i have no idea the significance of cabinets in museums, I'm curious as a budding 'nid' player what it does mean?

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

It is at times a giveaway, I was quite dubious awhile ago but it does sometimes tie into releases.
Nids are very soon anyway and Orks are not too far behind so it does tie in this time

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?

It could be for releases but Necrons being included makes no sense. They are nowhere near due an update. Unless GW has decided it's time to drop the nerfhammer. For a moment, I thought they might be signifying which armies would be getting Mega Battleforces this year. But they usually only due a couple and not including some kind of Marine one would be unusual. Orks and Nids would be nice to see for this but again, Necrons just had one. So maybe my conjecture will help somebody figure it out. Otherwise we just wait.

The museum at WHW is where they showcase all the 'Eavy Metal armies. Lise does a marvellous job organising it despite the guys in pre-production being rubbish at putting things back after they photograph it. When a new army comes out, she makes displays to show them. When something new gets done (like these mirror-coverings) it usually ties in with something new happening. The fact that it's started with two armies rumoured to be the next releases could either be coincidence, or convenience that the cabinets are virtually empty at present.

However, the cabinets being virtually empty at present (and in the case of the nids, has been all but empty for months) is another hint at a near release, as it's being used for photography.

I want something that can chew wraithknights and riptides up and spit them out, tired of their dominance at my store.

They aren't that tough. A couple Exorcists will blow through them pretty easily

Yeah but they seem to be able to destroy anything that will hurt them before I get a good go at them.
