Okay, let's look at this rationally. GW just released some dwarves minis without an army book. I'm not sure what that's about, but I'm almost willing to bet the army book will come out, with more minis, in a couple weeks here. If that's true, it means these rumours are a good two to three weeks too early for us to have any way at all of confirming them. We should all, then, be rather skeptical. Until I see leaked photos or a teaser video that implies SMs and/or CSMs, I'm chalking this up to wishlisting.

EDIT: Okay, I actually read the stuff that would have allowed me to think rationally, and now I'm a little more open to the idea of a large miniature and/or upgrade sprue wave in a couple weeks, especially since GW only released three new items for Dwarves. Let's not discount the possibility of a dwarves army book and a few more dwarves plastics, though.

boobs. that is all.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I would love to get some Raven Guard shoulder pads. Even Forgeworld only sells them with the full upgrade kits and they are far to ornamental in my opinion for my stock troops.

I remember reading a rumor that 9th edition was going to invalidate all existing army books. If no Dwarf book is released it would lend credence to that rumor.

Sure, but they are kind of old and I already have 3 of those. Plus they don't have the aformentioned ornate swords (which is weird) and mk2-3 helmets which are rumored. Hence my intention of buying the crap out of them.

Let's continue our rational thought. Why would GW price-gouge you with only one book when they can price-gouge you with many? Why would they make it so that new editions take that much longer to be written, playtested, balanced, playtested again, and finally released, when they can make army books separate and have a higher turnover rate not only for new editions, but also for the more popular army books, and therefore make more money?

boobs. that is all.

Default Cool Rumor: New Space Marines Chapter Sprues

The army book is coming out in another week or so after this initial release, supposedly. No one knows why, could have been intentional, could have been a screw up at the printer, no one knows. There has been alleged sightings of it.

But to back up what Mister Adramalech is saying, if 9th ed made all 8th ed army books obsolete, and they come out with the 9th ed BRB first, people wouldn't be able to play the game until their 9th ed army book is released, otherwise, they'd continue playing 8th, or just stop playing WFB, making the concept of invalidating 8th ed army books completely obsolete/detrimental.

but I don't believe GW is price-gouging, they're just setting their prices rather high. (price gouging requires opportunistically forcing customers to pay a higher rate under duress, such as intentionally and unfairly inflating the price of gas generators during a power outage). Note that price gouging is a crime in the USA.
