Warhammer rumours…


Some new rumours gestating from various sources at the moment.

The next three rumoured  Fantasy books: Vampire Counts; Empire and Dwarfs?

Some rumours pointing to the VC being the next book and others pointing to Empire?

As with all rumours, these are obviously not gospel, though some of the rumour-mongers mentioned below come pretty close to the actual releases…?

Below are examples taken from Warseer. Please follow link for complete postings.

Credits for all rumours go to Harry, 75hastings69, ihavetoomuchminis and Mirbeau.

Thanks to Huan Qu’itt.

Vampire Counts rumours

we’ve got Empire rumours thread but several people mentioned VC coming first! so i decided to gather all the tidbits we’ve had so far

Harry already hinted in several threads that it’s VC, Empire and Dwarves next:

ihavetoomuchminis and Hastings heard similar things:

Hastings also mentioned new Krell mini coming:

some time ago flesh golems and black coach appeared in the rumour-mill:

Originally Posted by Tonny Ah yes, I think Hastings mentioned the Flesh Golems.
I am quite exited about a new VC book

He did. The concept art for them is very cool. Half way between a big zombie and a ghoul with lots of stitching,

Note : The existence of concept art does not a mini make.
both rumours are confirmed in this thread:

Nope, you are reading fine.

and a little tidbit from Mirbeau:

to summarize things:

– VC are next army book to be released (Harry, 75hastings69), in january (ihavetoomuchminis)
– new unit “flesh golems” – something like a mix of large ghoul and zombie with a lot of stitches (Harry, 75hastings69, ihavetoomuchminis)
– new plastic black coach mini (Harry), dual kit (ihavetoomuchminis)
– new krell and female vampire minis (75hastings69)
– and some old rumour concerning new plastic black knights – still waiting to be confirmed

Empire rumours

Credits for all rumours go to Darnok; Birdy; 75hastings69; eldargal.

Thanks to Faet212.

It seems that even though winter is fast approaching, birds are still singing:

The Altar kit will be a dual kit. The second option will be a Nuln seige cannon. Massive cannon used to defend the walls of nuln.
I can’t comment on how solid these are. But it’s not the first – and probably not the last – I’ve heard over the last few weeks. It seems to me like the Empire is not too far away, meaning somewhere in the next six months.

Something more: the knight mentioned are supposedly not replacements of the current knights, but demi-gryph knights. See Warhammer Forge for reference.

Something more from 75hastings69, thanks too:
Empire are not getting updates of current knights, there are different cav coming though. The old crappy horses/knights remain. War altar makes something else, but afaik it’s not a cannon of any kind. 
And another birdy sings:

New Monstrous Cavalry, possibly Demigriffons, which comes with separate saddles and harnesses, so they can also be used as bound monsters in SOM without conversion.


eldargal: Empire rumours

I heard more Knightly Orders, not just one box of generic knights, plus warrior priests halflings and some characters, including a female. Never heard anything about a war altar/cannon kit, I heard a vague whisper of a war altar/war wagon kit.
