I call bull on specialist games rumours. If anything GW will put out an expansion (yes. another one. I don't know why, but it's what they seem to do), or do some sort of cheesy anniversary miniature (next year is more likely for that, though), or maybe do a stand-alone board game (like Space Hulk or Dreadfleet), but the specialist games range is dead, unless the rumour about GW licensing the specialist games range to Fantasy Flight Games is true, but this is the internet, a giant game of telephone where people often lie outright for a few seconds of fame.

I also highly doubt that we'll see the starter box over which everyone seems to be getting their knickers in a twist. Could be a board game with Blood Angels vs. Orks, which could be a blood bowl thing, or it could be Space Hulk II or something to that effect. Could just be wishlisting on the part of Orks fans who are bitter about still not having plastic deffkoptas. Like I said, the internet is a giant game of telephone, and people often lie outright.

All in all, I think the lack of leaked WD photos and release lists is causing us to wishlist and speculate with only past data and wildly varying levels of consistent logic, much in the same way that you might have auditory or visual hallucinations when you receive no auditory or visual stimuli, respectively.

TL;DR: I'll believe it when I see it.

boobs. that is all.

I don't know, I could actually see some sort of quasi epic, dread fleet/battle of five armies style game coming out with everything you need to play the game contained in the box. You'd have a series of missions to p[lay out using a predetermined number of miniatures with the outcome of the game affecting how the next plays out. GW wouldn't even have to release it, could be licensed out to some one else.

Edit: Specialist games IS DEAD as others have said, however I could quite easily see the games that were covered under the specialist games umbrella making a return, being produced by other miniatures games producers. In fact GW would be stupid not to, the already have other companies produce RPG's and board games as well as computer and consoles game under license without any challenge to their IP, while claiming royalties and having the final say as to how their IP is used.

Well, yeah, but then it has no bearing whatsoever on GW's stores, release dates, or manufacturing schedule. :\ It's an errant rumour floating around with no way to even speculate about its plausibility by comparing it with the other rumours floating around... it's the black sheep, the red-headed stepchild.

*I want to believe*

I would love this to be true but I can't say i'm convinced,
in regards to Bloodbowl - I know work was done on it,
too many people I know of and actually know have seen it (or evidence of it)for it to be completely non-existant,
but where it is and what will happen with it.................

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?

that would be great. just like miley cyrus in my bedroom tied and gagged, ready for the taking. Guess what? it's not going to happen.

given we are less than 12 months away from the last hobbit film i could see GW making moves towards some specialist ranges returning, particularly when you consider how much 40k product is currently in circulation and how much of the fantasy stuff has been moved from metal to plastic, at some point in the next few years they are going to need another string for the bow because only the two core systems will feel a little light weight.

Well October 2015 with be 20 years after the initial release of Necromunda, their could be quite a bit of product to make and sell in that area if they spend time working on Scenery and the like. But the chance is are they will come up with something new. Which could be a good thing, or it could stink.

I have been hoping for this for awhile

Let us prey we don't see
Coming Soon -
The Silmarillion: Part 1 of 15
The Silmarillion: The Ainulindalė - coming 2016

Given the Production-Hell of getting the Hobbit made, (Unable to find directors and such) I dont think we will see a Silmarillion movie.

Anyway Peter Jackson has The Dam Busters to make!
Here are some links:-

As much as I love the Silmarillion, its not a book that would translate well into a film. Part of it are slow and others skip over massive battles with minimal detail.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.
