Millest's Wargaming Blog!
It will no doubt end up becoming a place for my own odd thoughts! However its meant to start life as a Wargaming, hobby and painting blog. It will also be a book review site, a bit of a product review page, an airsoft blog and in places lots of other things, but over all I hope it will be a good read!
This is the motherload of information tonight. There is a
lot of good news here, as well as some rather sad news for Sister's of Battle.
It seems that Sister's of Battle (adeptus Sororitas) may not be on the list of
things coming this year.
This is a compilation of the latest rumors going on right
now as we speak!
I want to thank Drbored for compiling a lot of this. We
will following any further developments on these rumors. Notice the
Admech....... The Skitarii are coming.
Please remember that these are all rumors. Hastings has
always been very solid, and a great resource for the what is coming in the
Right guys there are several separate rumours that folks
are getting mixed
up. So I'll at least split it up a little for you. THIS
IS NOT RELEASE
ORDER, just to help separate the rumours. IT ALSO ISN'T A
FULL LIST OF THIS
YEARS 40K RELEASES, in fact some of these may be early
next year. NONE OF
THESE ARE WFB BASED.
Admech Codex & models (full release)
***** Codex & Models (Harlequin sized release)
***** Codex & Models (Harlequin sized release)
***** Standalone Boxed "historical game" models
from which will form part
of "a full range" (notice I didn't say existing
***** Standalone Boxed Game models from which will form
part of an existing
I haven't heard anything about mark 9 armour so don't
associate it with any
of the above.
Hastings and Lords of War Gaming also said Sisters of
Battle will not be
coming out this year at all, LoWG on their Facebook and
Hastings on Warseer.
Question by drbored on Warseer (hastings response is
Sad about Sisters, but let's work on the rest of these.
When you say 'Harlequin-sized release' you mean in terms
of number of kits?
So it COULD be a main codex (like Space Marines or
whatevs) getting about
as many models as the Harlequins got, or are we talking
forces like the Militarum Tempestus and Harlequin-style
releases with new
Also I think it's pretty clear that the 'full range' is
going to become
GW's plastic 30k stuff, which means the boxed 'historical
game' is going to
be Horus Heresy based, or am I just off the mark?
I mean Harlequin sized as in number of kits, i.e. a few
troops kit, a larger kit and a transport. Or thereabouts
One kind of has a
main codex, kind of, and it's been mentioned on this very
thread. The other
has also been mentioned on another thread, the one that
got moved for not
having any news or rumours in.... even though it actually
contained quite a
bit. In fact I suppose you might say the 2nd has a main
codex too (kind of)
You sir are on the mark
It's HH as stated above.
I think there's a misunderstanding here. BOTH new
standalone games will have their model contents released. The first being HH,
will see models released as part of the 30k range. The 2nd boxed game models
will be released as part of 40k range, part that is currently only available in
finecast and not deathwatch before anyone says it again.
second 'box game' is based on Officio Assasinorum.
I'm honestly really hoping that Chaos Space Marines gets
some attention. Let's get some properly sized Plague Marines, updated Khorne
Berzerkers, and Noise Marines and Thousand Sons that aren't half Finecast,
Also thanks 75hastings, this is awesome stuff and makes
me pretty excited for the future!
Oh they will
But not as part of the stuff in this thread, well unless
you count the bad SM as CSM? (if you know what I mean)
I have heard that there might be a plastic GD, plastic
daemons, and plastic CSM kit for a certain god at some point later this year
(and no it's not Khorne!)
HH Standalone box game, on sale for a few months, then
models become part of 30k range.
Assassins Standalone box game, on sale for a few months,
then models become part of the 40k range.
Not Arbites, Not CSM in any form, subtract from those
listed. Although I did say that DA might get an update AND that there may be a
40k release of a GD, Deamons and CSM for a god that isn't Khorne at some time
later in the year.
Then separately DA & Tzeentch type stuff. Oh but
don't rule out the missing GDs etc. they're all done
Two are due out this year (greater daemons) AFAIK, and
we've seen pics of 1
I will just reiterate I DO NOT KNOW THE TIMEFRAME of
these releases, I've been out of the loop for some time. I can only assume that
Lords of Wargaming have the Apr/May Admech correct (I'd heard April) but I've
no idea of the schedule or indeed order of the other stuff.
I guess Patriarch, Magus, Hybrids, and Limo might just
about make that a Harlequin sized release?
Totally (well not totally actually) unrelated I did hear
that actual CODEXes? (CODices?) god know s the plural, might soon be a thing of
the past. with all rules being in box leaflets. Some might even contain 2 sets
of rules, one for 40k and one for 30k But I'm not 100% on this.
via Harry on Warseer (trying to clear up the Mark 9
armour debate that keeps coming back)
I think I can clear this one up.
It would seem duffybear heard a rumour about new space
marines. He naturally assumed these were what came next .... mark 9
However it did not occur to him that what his rumour was
about was what came before .....
I think these rumours ARE part of the same thing.
I think Duffy's rumours are about the new space marines
for THIS .... for 30K
So that would make it not mark 9 but something like Mark
3 / Mark 4 ? armour. (Or whatever armour it was 30K ...someone will have to
help me out with that)
The armour is a simpler, earlier version of the power
armour we all know and love.
It looks a bit like something Tony Stark might have
knocked up in the desert.
