To clarify - DH and WH models started dissapearing in February this year. Both codices followed soon after.

The rumour is that Daemonhunters will be replaced by Codex: Grey Knights around February 2011 and Witch hunters will be replaced by Codex: Something late 2011 or early 2012.

The current codices available for download do not contian the allies rules or hobby section.
Legend has it that there will be an Inquisition codex or suppliment some time, no-one knows when or what form it will take.

If you're talking about WH/SoB - late '11 or early '12 seems to be where the smart money is.

The most reliable romourmongers reckon that Necrons, some kind of Space Marine and maybe Tau are in the queue before Sisters. Though obviously nothing is ceertain at this point.

The portents make it look a bit like this:

November 2010: Dark Eldar
February 2011: Grey Knights
Summer 2011: Necrons
Autumn 2011: Some kind of Space Marine (Probably Loyalist).
Winter 2011: Tau or Sisters
Spring 2012: Sisters or Tau.

Obviously, the above is a best-case scenario - four codices in one year isn't something to bank on.

Well, let's be fair - twelve months ago, GW did say that 2010 would be the year of Fantasy - and there was precious little sign of that for the first few months.

It's possible they'll make 2011 a 40k year.

Two months ago Stickmonkey (if you haven't heard of him, he's kind of a big deal) posted his best guess.

Stickmonkey said:
2010
Nov/Q4 - DE
2011
Jan/Q1 - GK (may be as late as March)
Late spring/Q2 - Necrons
Early Fall/Q3 - Witch hunters or Black Templar
Late Fall/Q4 - Tau
2012
Early Spring/Q1 - Black Templar or Witch hunters
Late Spring/Summer/Q2 - 40k 6E
Early Fall/Q3 - 40k Box Set Eldar Vs ??? (plastic aspect warriors?)
Late Fall/Q4 - Eldar
2013
Early Spring/Q1 - Dark Angels
Late Spring/Q2 - Chaos SM
Fall/Q3+ - vanilla SM
That was two months ago - we now know that DE are next and it grows more and more likely that GK will be February than January. And we're hearing more Space Marine (of some kind) rumours than Sisters rumours.
