Was there not a Lustria book rumoured soon? that is lizard men isn't it? might be worth including the round-up
I haven't heard anything or come across anything on a lustria book since 2005, what was said about it? as I would be shocked if there was anything else about lizardmen due anywhere close to an armybook

Here quite an unconfirmed thing, but as FW goes it fits the mold (ho ho) and lets them make huge dinosaur models, would be nice but I think the "late 2013" is a bit ambitious.

There was something discussed about FW working on a large dinosaur for their fantasy book, but no real details were given.
Hey man, the dinosaur in question is the Dread Saurian. It's bigger and better than the Carnosaur (even though Carnosaur is the Ultimate Predator) but doesn't have Large Target.... Anyway, I actually asked Forge World if they are working on it and I actually got a reply:

"Unfortunately, the Black Fire Pass book has been placed on indefinite hold. We will probably make the Dread Saurian at some point, schedule permitting."

So, not soon. Which is a damn shame.

As for general stuff. I wouldn't mind seeing Coatl, Arcanodons and Culchan (Which used to exist as a model) around. I think it's going to be an anti-climax for me. Oh well.

From Warseer via Faeit212:

via thalamus over on Warseer
In a Forum over here in Germany, there has been recently stated, that by hearsay a retailer told:
LM are definitely coming in August.

The release contains the AB and "only" two or three new releases in total. There hasn't been any information, if "new releases" means two or three boxes and whether the boxes are only single kits or contain at least one dual kit. What we know is, that one of those boxes contain Terradons and maybe something additional. So it is still unclear, if i.e. a own magic lore can be expected and if one of the new releases means cards for the new magic lore.

The reason, why the retailer shared this info, was that he is going on vacation during the normal preordering phase, so he gave it a bit earlier to ensure an on-date delivery.

Great. So Lizardmen are going to be extremely gimped when it comes to new stuff then? Thanks GW.

We know one has to be a big kit. I am suspecting Arcanodon mount with EotG on. Also, Coatl not being in is a big surprise...

Lizardmen need their own Magic Lore. Everybody has one bar the Dwarves. The Empire get Sigmar's Blessing things. Dwarves get Runes. So Lizardmen have needed one for ages. Also it'll be interesting to see if they actually mention the Slann being the most powerful mages instead of the fucking High Elves. I also want them to bring back 1st Spawning Slann. I mean they are going to have to to. Why? Tomb Kings and High Elves got Level 5 Wizards. So unless Kroak goes up to 5 or Mazumdi, then we're gimped against the TK and HE.

I swear I also read in the 7th Edition book there are Giant Snakes, so, who knows. They need to give Saurus the ability to take Light Armour. So do Kroxigors.

Get used to it, armybooks/codexes are beginning to release more often with less models, it's either that or we end up with more necron, dark eldar and SOB situautions where armies spend milleniums waiting to be updated :grin:

Well they aren't really teasers. They are just some random picture of nothing with sounds and some vague yet obvious text confirming something all us forum goers already know is coming.
That's kinda my point. They should have just ripped off Jurasic Park and had done with it.
