I find that giving my manager a cheery "Morning!" and a big happy glad-to-be-at-work smile has the same effect. Or at least, it makes him paranoid about what I'm up to....

I could agree with Shining Spears but they do not "need" it. I personally like the jet bike.

"If this is true, then this means that Chaos will get pushed back until late 2013 or early 2014."

Maybe, maybe not.
At Gamesday the major Chaos player from our group was talking very enthusiastically with a Black Library writer about his work. And the fact that he'd like to see some of the writers' literary creations become officially playable in the tabletop game.
The writer, caught up in the enthusiasm, said he'd been trying for a couple of months now to get Phil Kelly to incorporate one of his most iconic characters into the Codex.
Which tells me that Mr Kelly has been working on the Codex for quite some time and while I accept a schedule is a schedule, two to three more years to release seems somewhat pessimistic.

Though I take your life, I promise you the stars...

IF this holds true then its at least going to be a characterful and fun book.

I also doubt that Eldar will be a 2012 release but they deserve to be released before Chaos. People seem to forget that the Eldar codex is not only older than the Chaos one but that the Eldar codex also became more bland with its current addition (No Craftworld Eldar book). To pile on the reasons lets not forget that a significant proportion of the Eldar produce range was released for 3rd edition or even before that. Some people want these models (Wraithguard, Jetbikes, Warp Spiders and many others) to have new sculpts since the poses on some are ugly. The best Chaos can claim to is having a few special characters being a bit old.
I can agree with this. Though, being a chaos fan myself, it's hard to overcome my bias for purposes of eldar-sympathy. In Sorte Slaaneshi and all that.

I suppose I can assume from all this that if I'm going for Eldar as my next army then I should go ahead and buy some models and the Codex as it's going to be awhile yet before new stuff hits?

EDIT: Reason: The 6th edition starter set AKA. the next AoBR equivalent, will be Black Templars + Chaos as a tie-in to the MMORPG Warhammer 40K: Dark Millennium Online. The following codices will be the remaining races from WH40K:DMO, which is Eldar and Imperial Guard.

EDIT 2: These rumors are toss, 110% guaranteed, it's just BoLS knee-jerk conjecture in the panic that their niche is gone and their website is useless now.
Utter Crap, the Black Templars WILL NOT be the only chapter that you'll be able to choose in the game, so STOP associating Black Templars as the sole chapter in the game and that the new Starter Set will be connected to them, IT WILL NOT.
Why do people see the need to think Black Templars as the only chapter in the game and that the 6th ed Starter set is connect to the release of the game.

The game is a MMORPG and as with any game of that type customization of the Character will be prevalent and a choice of Chapter Schemes will be available and will probably have something similar to the army painter in the DOW games.

As to Eldar i refuse to believe they'll be released before Chaos Space Marines, regardless of how old, (Other releases show the irrelevance of age of a codex hence Dark Eldar getting a new codex after many many years) Chaos Space are perhaps more popular and will perhaps be released before even Eldar.

Then your gonna be upset. I have recently seen photos of some Eldar Jetbikers tht were meant to be released in the last codex but somewhere something happened and most likely will be released for the next codex.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

Really? I can say with absolute confidence that no new jetbikes were made during the last Eldar Codex release, nor at any point up to 2009. They may have made more in the interim in preparation, or whilst they were making the DE ones, but they weren't made at the last release.

New models mean nothing. The Plastic DP was leaked more then a year before the new dex. SO maybe eldar will be seen 2013-late 2012. If the pictures were real.
