It's your favorite kind of rumor, back to reap havoc, anonymous rumors from Faeit 212! However, december is soon enough that at least we won't have to wait long to decide whether we rule it out or not.
Personally, I'm hoping this is true because it might mean Imperial Guard in February.Is it really possible that everything that appears to be set for December could be changing? This rumor tends to go in that direction, saying that a certain model was just not up to standards. According to this rumor bit, something like that could throw a wrench into the release schedule, and everything could be moving around.
Please remember that this is a rumor. Right now I have no idea where this stands.

current GW managerial chart says that's Smaug wasn't good enough for the studio, so GW have had to go back to the drawing board, moving current releases forward so they don't miss the Christmas release window, Nids moving up to Dec, dwarfs in Jan 2014.
They'll still do the collectors releases for the hobbit, scenes from the film and such, just no new hobbit box

Looks like I was a month out with Nids release date. expected release date 30th Nov -7th Dec. Second wave releases got removed if you haven't already noticed. Expect second wave release's to start in approx 18-24 month after all codex's and army books are complete.
Normally we have an army strike force box set each year, guess again. that's the new standard battle forces so be interesting to see what pops around at x-mas if anything.
I know I was told Orks for march this may well not be the case but could be May with the campaign release month being June.
Black Library Books
There's 2 new boos being worked on by BL. hints have been thrown at me of Iron Warriors vs Daemons (definitely Iron Warriors) also another SMB book, still looking into this at the minute. Authors unknown but artwork is rumored to be by the talented Jon Sullivan
