    Yeah, I don't doubt that it will come eventually, but personally I don't see it in 2018. But so far 2018 had several positive surprises, so hopefully I am wrong

    Actually, I wouldn't bet money on Gorkamorka, but as there is a wheel of a buggy in the rumour engine, I included it in my list

    @Gaz Taylor RT probably won't come in September, either GW is very bold and brings it in August or it will take up the taditional spot of Boxed games in late October, ewarly november, depending on whether Grokamorka is true or not. And August will bring us Cwador the next Necromunda Gang. If we see Killtema this week, next week the rest of AoS, than a week* for both SW and Orc dex as well as Necro gang, followed by a week of Stealer, it would place AT right on time for pre-order at WF Europe, which is a nice spo to advertise again. Furthermore it would see all confirmed stuff to come before or right at the Fest, opening up spots for new and needed rumours and announcements. *= note from here on that its speculation, thre dexes in one month would near neckbreaking speed, but doable - and sadly miss an oportunity for new SW and Orc releases. But thos are wishlisting to larger parts right now

    Damn, thats an intersting one. Fits kinda-sort of to what a bird told me - GW reportedly is working on a way to get rid of the dreaded Flying stands whilst still keeping the impression of the models beeing in mid-flight. In all honstness, its a rumour from few years back, so I don't no what its worth, but with Jamies rumours ther might be something to it. On the other hand, it might just has been the new Nighthaunts. In a Months there should be new rumours, Warhammer fest Europe here we go.

    The image alone would make such a rule worthwhile, at least in narrative play: a rider with his huge bestial mount sitting in a church bell tower, both crouched below the bay, waiting for a worthy target. The rider hugging his long-range device, the mount serving as a spotter supporting vital information on trajectory, target weak spots, etc. Brilliant image! How both got up there? Magic, who cares. How they will get down? Freefall, the landing cushioned by the amassed bodies of their enemies! But all jokes aside, a bonus on shooting from a higher up position (not necessarily the range - just because I am 5 stories higher doesn’t extant the range of my bow - but maybe on rolls to hit) is an interesting concept, that might add additional depth. Question is, will it really offer more possibilities or does it only clutter the rules unnecessarily? Despite the possibilities for more rules and strategies, some more scenery would be nice – hopefully not only stormcast build ruins, but something for other factions and realms, too.

    and by Companies you mean GW, rigth?! 😛 Aos and 40k scale differntly in my opinion and requier differnet approces to bring it down to small scale encounters. And as already said, with Shadespire there is already an aditional game in place for Aos, something 40k was lacking till killteam. yes yes I know, there was and is Shadowwars and Silver tower, but both were ways of tipping the toe to test the water for what might work, testing it inside a very contained envyroment of a single box.And keep in mind that I don't say, Killteam will never spill over to AoS, but as of now its far of and GW has other stuff in place of it for AoS, that requires attantion.

    I see what you mean. I don't necessarily agree though as I think yo are wrong again on many levels, let point some things out to illustrated and reason why I think so: AoS in itself is basicly a skirmish that scales quite well into larger battles. AoS right now has to expand its factions and faction choices not push out more and more different subgames. The first would expand the IP in generall, the later would feed on the main system, splitting or even reducing profits for both AoS just got a box set what you really mean and want is more an campaign expension with the development of characters, more magic itmes and individual abilites as well as the possibility to scale down engagements even further then it is possible right now, not another standalone game based on an IP that is still in its own expanding development. and if GW does a Killteam like AoS game, its not on the cards right now, it will go there only after killteam has seen a longer periode of evaluation - actually killteam in itself is just a reaction to the surprisingly hugh sucess shadow war was. GW was surprised by it more than anyone else!

    you and @Jamie the Jasper both misunderstood - I am not saying because Shadespire is an individual based skrimish like killteam there won't be a AoS-Skirmish, but because we have already a sepeart game based on AoS , we won't see anotherone with a similar small scale approce soon. GW can only support so much systems, and a skirmish for a skirmsih game is not as high up as already existing, sucessfull games. Killteam will get Rough trader as an expension with two new factions. And yes, @Jamie the Jasper, you are wrong. The Infos are leaking from other sources, the Box content and first pictures where leake some weeks ago and confimed by GW in a short video. This week we got information snips via faeit on the background of each faction an a short inllustration for both.

    I don't thik we will see a skirmish in AoS because of *cough* Shadespire (season 2) *cough*

    So: July: Kill team NH/SCE wrapup August Adeptus titanicus (1-2 weeks) + 1-2 Codexes (both could be one week, depending on accompanying models) as for what we know: that leaves: GSC (1-2 Weeks), Rough trader (1 Week), Gorkamorka (1 Week), Emperors children (upt to 3-4 weeks) for what? Mid August till end of year, with sime BB/necro/AT boxes mixed in (in weeks with other minor releases like codexes/battletome overhauls, leftover boxes of new factions etc. All in all there is enough wiggle room for at least 1 new faction for the two main systems. Right now the only limitation seams to be production capacity for GW, which is not totaly up to them from what we know. Warhammer Fest Europe probably will show us some of the stuff that's to come between August and late October/early November, with the stuff shown at Warhammer fest GB being nearly the months in the past then. Could be an interesting event - will be hard not to be spoilered before Sunday, when I get there for the GD Classics

    At this point and with the crazy full release cycle GW has shwon so far I wouldn't even be surprised, if we would see all MP-Champions factions - thus giving us both goblins and chaos barbarians before the end of the year - as well as Slaanesh for 40k (AoS in January 2019)!

    like every SCG release it will be along a minor release for AoS/40k - max. As it is a starter box release, it probably will come on its own. We get a basic box, the big box and single models so its a freaking big release.

    The Rumour Thread

    This week will be Killteam, then probably/hopefully the remaining NH und SCE stuff, followed by Titanicus. Somewhere in there or right behind should be Wolves and Orcs in Space in the same week as the necorumda gang. WHF Europe should bring insides to the one not shown as well as news on the next 3 months, as we will run out of known stuff, especially SCG related. Edit: btw What could it be, a ripple in a soulcontaining Mirror?

    Games Workshop Out of Stock Items.

    Yep, they are at max production capacity, from what we know. And only part of it is due to them. What doesn't help is the start of two new editions within 12 months, nearly all stiff for specialized games being plastic as well with titanicus coming around the corner and being in high demand and further boxed games and expansions planned.

    As expected from that crappy page. If it wasn't that both models were easy to build it might habe been plausible.
