New pics at the bottom of this post

Hi,
while today's WD already confirmed 40k Orks in the next issue, here is the leaked cover of next week's WD:


Here some rumours on what the release will bring:
Squidbot over at Dakka said:
The new mid size stompa thing looks like a pregnant Deff Dread. Comes with various weapon mountings, including what looks like a KFF.
New Gretchin models, including a grot oiler.
New mega nobs, not plastic versions of the existing.
Big Mek in mega armour with some interesting KFF like add ons.
Big Mek in Mega Armour with shoulder mounted weapons, maybe SAG but doesn't look like it.
Warboss is similar to the remodelling of the Helbrute from Dark Vengeance, it looks like a reworking of the AOBR Warboss with an attack Squig
New Pain Boy with a kind of Narthecium cybork hand.
Flash Gitz (They look particularly awesome, very much like Freebootaz with loads of variation in the kit).
Big Gunz. Total redesign.
(...)
Gretchin Big Gunz have had a full redesign. Much bigger.
La Taberna de Laurana over at Faeit 212 said:
Gorkanaught/Morkanaut, it will cost 65 pounds, 85 euro, 105 USD...
It´s a new stompa for orks, with transport for 6 miniatures, with new arms.
It´s almost the size of an Imperial Knight, about 1 or 2 inches less than it.

(...)
Dual Kit Gorkanaught/Morkanaut 1 Model $105
The Crimson Fist: GW Exclusive novel by John French $24
How to Paint Citadel Miniatures: Ork Gorkanaut
Mournfant Brown Spray- Basecoat Spray $18
Here new Ork art from the new rulebook set, a hint on the new Codex cover?

I dont own anything Orc personally and at this point in my hobby it wont be something I invest in soon I need to get back to saving again and control my spending.

But this makes me very excited for the Orc players :)

it's felt like we've been waiting forever.
new models and looking forward to the new big guns, and what appears to be an answer to the Imperial Knight. makes sense with ork mentality "ooh look big robot attacker we need one of them but let's make it bigger

yeah! bring it stompin umies da nu way.

I prefer the old Gargant models from Epic to the look of that :( though a Large Walker that is also a transport sounds like a bit of a weird idea that might be cool.

:laugh: I'm sure you'll be fine. Do you think this would tie into Orks being in the 7th edition starter set in conjunction with their new Codex?
GW have stated that they're re-releasing Dark Vengeance with the 7th edition rules. I'm skeptical of any other starter set at the moment.

On topic:

FUCK YEAH.

So is there an actual release date yet? I was just on GW site and they still have the old codex listed for sale.
just way to excited now.

Re-reading a few of the rumours, I can't see how warp points are going to tie into the psychic phase, as they say you get charge points if you kill a unit with shootas, or if you charge with choppas. These are both now after the psychic phase, unless they get added to the following psychic phase. That many charge points (dice) would give the orks a huge amount of deny dice every turn.

Anyway will just have to wait and see. waited this long for it another Month isn't going to hurt.

GW won't pull the codex until the next one goes on pre-order. So at soonest we'll officially know by next Friday (sooner if we get pictures of the WD soon). Though that can be hit or miss on if it's a full release with pre-orders starting next week, or just a wave of models with everything else coming out later.

This is a lucky coincidence. My interest in Orks has risen lately and now they seem to be getting an update :D

This happened a few years ago with Dark Eldar as well before they got all their new stuff.

Hey Zion, want me to gain some interest in SoB for you? :wink:

I don't know if that'd help to be honest. They got an update just last year, and it can only be described as an act of domestic violence against the army by the writers.
