That said, assuming it's not the case...what the absolute f-
It almost sounds like this is a specialist game, or a secondary game, in the making, and not an actual full game. Or perhaps we are caricaturing it in our minds and it won't be quite as radical as we are imagining. Also, the wording on half this stuff is still to ambiguous.

-The Warhammer World gets shattered on a dimensional level during the climax of the ET. No more "map of the Old World" - it's now little bubbles of reality, where pockets of civilisation try desperately to eke a living before the next collision with another bubble, which may be full of Chaos. (To address the problem of "how come my Tomb Kings of Khemri are fighting against Wood Elves from Athel Loren?", not that I get the impression that either of those will still exist, but you get the idea)

-New faction... heavily armoured, religious, "good" human warriors fighting with the power of the gods. (Warhammer Space Marines, basically). Karl Franz Ascended seems to be the prototype or precursor for this concept, AFAICT.

-9th edition will have 6 factions. Model diversity cut in half shelf space. New world and new age so current factions and lore aren't recognizable at all. Each new faction has like 3 core units that will always be on the shelf. Much faster releases of stuff, mainly characters and special units of 2-5 fancy models (like Morghasts) that have their own rules right in the box, so not dependent on a static army book. Many of the these non-core models are only available for a limited time (say 6 months to a year), so they don't take up shelf space forever and ever. Many existing models are not usable in 9th.

-We can expect the next edition of Fantasy to throw everything up in the air. The whole End Times move has been to wean people onto a whole new take on the Warhammer world and it's going to start with every army being "chaosified". We can expect army play styles and appearance to change quite dramatically and there will be a whole load of new models being released early on to tie everything together. This has caused quite a stir back at GW HQ as there are a lot of people behind the scenes (some of which are very well known to us) who don't like the changes that have been made. I have also been told that the models due to be released are some of the best to date!
SHIT! Tosses out my homebrew fluff.

Soooooo.....basically they make it into a fantasy version of 40k

Tosses boxes of unassembled warhammer units.

Really.......so they are taking a step back to the olde daes.

MOTHER F-Lots of cursing follows, tosses few assembled units and few remaining mad scribblings of fluff, deletes large number of ebooks, and dex.

Yeaaaaah......throw it into the air, that's a way to put it.

Digs boxes out of trash and puts it on the 'ebay' shelf.

Make of that what you will. I am unsure of how I feel about the lore side of it, though I will give it a chance. As for the models, BS. Total BS. So from now on we can expect revolving door model releases, I like the idea of rules-in-the-box, but not that model kits will be on limited release spans. I really hope GW change their mind about that.


LotN
Absolute bullshit! If this is true (i have my doubts) I will just play 8th edition and maybe End Times. I have the books and building an army at the moment. But seriously WTF! BUBBLES! BUBBLES! What idiot came up with that idea! Third party companies will benifit though.....

I call bullshit on this.

1, Games Workshop just posted a whopping 11 million pounds sales loss for 2013/14.

2, Games Workshop is expecting to post another 11 Million pounds + sales loss for 2014/15

3, Games Workshop's shares have slipped to record lows, even prior to the London Stock Exchange crash the other day.

And now we expect this bullshit.

GW might as well file for bankruptcy now and get it over and done with.

Ultramarines are Pussies

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

Default Warhammer Fantasy 9th Edition Rumour

Anyone wondering if the ill reception thats buzzing around will squash this plan?

And this will not cause bankruptcy. They are probably going to invest the same amount into this (or less) that they putting iNto WFB are now. They wouldn't do something this extreme unless they had nothing to lose

Seeing as Fantasy hasn't even in the top 5 selling wargaming since 2013 and they're putting just as much money into it, if not more than 40k, and had a major wake-up call with the Chapterhouse lawsuit about what they can and can't protect they need to do something to shake the game up a bit. WFB hasn't seen a major change since it's inception in the 80s and has such a high investment requirement just to start playing that something needs to change majorly to bring in new players.

I think the rumors at least have merit and will be picking up the core rules when they drop to see what is happening because it's a game I'd like to play but can't afford to right now.

It won't quash it. For the rumours to be coming out now, and for it to be hitting the shelves in 4-6 months, it should have been in production and slotted in now as the big summer release. Things will be at the printers, likely, while newly launched models and kits a-la Island of Blood will begun to be made.

The worst thing is with this rumour is that it's all so plausible, and that I hope it's just lost in translation or something and it's not as drastic as it sounds.
