Why should GW give us pictures of the models to come? When people have been taking their unreleased product and splashing it all over the internet, what on earth makes you think they will want to put *anything* out early?

Early leaks do little but make GW want to be tighter with their security, not less. Speaking from past experience, it *does* lessen the impact of a release when all the new stuff has been seen beforehand...

Then again it is true that, contrary to the last few teasers I remember, this one does not even show glimpses of the models to come.
The internet is a *tiny* portion of the worldwide player base. A vocal one, but a tiny one.

I like the look of most of the pictures added. But the new Flying MC is starting to look like a Tyranid version of the Heldrake. Not good.

to be fair; a flying turkey WOULD be better suited in the Nid army rather than the CSM force.

Riiiiight, so GW wants me to shell out 39,00 for a codex book, PLUS another potential 20,00 for an add-on Dataslate I'm going to need if I wanted to field that Tyranid Vanguard or those silly Veterans ?
Seriously ?
That's just milking the cow beyond good reason.

The ONLY potentialy positive thing here might be ... do I smell another Dataslate for a 'Stealer Cult maybe ?

You mean something of actual interest in the name of variety? No chance.

I remeber it like it were yesterday, even though it was almost the better part of decade ago, when there was no need for leeks because Games Workshop would show you themselves what was going to be coming out in six months time, both at Gamesday and on the website, and they'd let you know what was going to be released three months in advance via White Dwarf. I remember looking through an open copy of the 1st edition Apocalypse book at one of their retail outlets a month before it was released.

Don't tell me that such practice hurt them financially if anything it served to hype up interest and actually promoted sales. People would know what was coming out in the future and be foaming at the mouth in anticipation to get their hands on it, they'd save up their overtime, pocketmoney, doll cheques, what ever their income, for month's on end so they could buy stuff.

You might argue that it affects the sale of what is going to come out in the interum and say that if a hobbyist is saving all of his money for the upcoming Space Ork realase then he won't spen money on the new Vampire Counts that are coming out a few months prior, which is fair point. However look at it realistically, if a player is into Space Orks why would he spend his money on Vampire Counts anyway? On the off months when the army book/codex and accompanying miniatures aren't someones liking, then they're still not going to buy them, instead they'll end up spending their cash on the latest boxed set of Dr. Who or Grand Theft Auto 7 or something else that interests them. Atleast the way they did things before, people would be saving up for their army's latest release and would be less likely to spend their money on other interests.

To tell you the truth I'm actually interested in buying both dataslates, but for the very obvious reason of not owning some sort of device, am not able to at the moment. Something I would like to remedy in the near future. And as cool as it would be to have 'stealer cults back in 40k, I don't know which is the best option to take, a dataslate, a supplemnet for both Tyranids and IG, or even a stand alone mini dex like the Inquistion one.

Then you know what to do........

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?

Nah; GW realised the massive fuck-up they made with the Heldrake and won't be making that mistake again. Being a FMC means it can't be *that* great; the Harpy is still atrocious, and it looks like the Crone isn't that much more resilient. Any half-decent AA is still ripping it out of the sky, and it's a LOT less insanely resilient than the Heldrake (which, let's face it, is the only reason the Heldrake is good).

Even then, it's all rumour so far. Maybe half of this stuff is true. Maybe.
