Pretty sure I've seen this list get posted up on /tg/ before. Still, good to know SoB are getting a lot of new plastic kits.
seriously nobody cares
>>20259548Sorry, why don't you go to one of your quests. The people who play games are talking.

Where's the new demon engines? The cultists? Are they just the hybrid upgrade pack? And where are the separate Dark Angels releases?Imperial Agents look interesting since they don't have enough to actually field an army. I think they might bring back the old Imperial agents rules!
Plastic Eldar and Sisters have been rumored finished for a long time now. Just like Necrons and Dark Eldar, GW are waiting to time it right since they're considered uncertain investments.
HOLY SHIT.THANK YOU OP.
>cult hybrid upgrade packPlease be bringing back Genestealer Cults, please be bringing back Genestealer Cults. If this refers to chaos cultists being made of plastic and metal I'll be pissed.
Also, incase it isn't obvious:The "RE" after the item's name means it's in resin and the "PL" means plastic.
>>20259509>>20259548Yeah, hey there guys. See if you don't care you should just move on. "Sage" isn't a downvote or anything like that, it just lets you post without bumping. It's courtesy thing for when you're off topic or just don't think your post is worth bumping the thread.See how I saged appropriately here?

>>20259461Goddamit GW, stop making me want to get a SoB army
So anybody else hoping really damn hard that there's going to be a 'Codex: Mercanaries' released? Bunch of (d)eldar, orks, humans, and tau species all up to be allied with whatever armies are applicable. Can even base a lot of the allies on already existing models, just different rules is all.
>Tau Mako>Space Marine Land Avenger>Space Marine Land Avenger Vulkan/Invictus>Space Marine Praetor WarmachineI must know what these are. Vehicles of some sort, I would presume.
>>20259574All of this stuff is for next year onward. You probably don't see Chaos Marines or Dark Angels because they'll be coming out before then.
>>20259598It's the same butthurt troll. Same grammar and phrasing and everything.

>>20259574The combos there are interesting. A variant for the Seraphim and a variant for the Exorcist?
p-p-plastic imperial guard storm troopers / Iron Cloak Veterans (?)Did i just jizz in my pants?
I think I see evidence for the idea of an Allies book. Hope my Nids bros get their genestealer cult list.
>>20259633I suspect that Imperial Agents and the Cabal are small mercenaries / allied factions (possibly freebooters).I've heard rumors that the Tau codex was going to have some of its allies spun off for an ally codex for them to pick from, but maybe MAYBE (pure speculation here) that dodgy sounding rumor is true, its just that GW is going to put out an allies book that covers options for everyone.
>Plastic Storm Troopers>Severus Agemman>EVERYTHING ELSEMY ANUUUUUUUUSSssssssssssss
>>20259662Ah, right.Those'll be the Chaos second wave / White Dwarf releases then.
Lots of interesting looking models. I can't wait to see the Neophytes and the Artificer squad, those sound effing awesome.
Plastic sisters?Ow, right in the wallet.Especially if they get Imperial Agent allies.
MY GOD NEW WARBUGGIES/TRAKKS TO REPLACE THE OLD ONES!ALL OF MY WAAAAAAAAAGH!

>>20260348a dead Ultrasmurf at that. Weird they'd make a model for him when there's already a banner bearer of macragge model (in Calgar's honour guard)
>>20260369Just another reason to take this shitty list with a pinch of salt.Unless they're releasing his model as a "collectors piece" now in *ahem* superior resin...
>>20260369>>20260379Of course we could just turn on wild speculation mode and assume Helveticus got turned into a Dreadnought special character. The list is MEANT to cause people to wildly speculate.
>>20260379but, like, they're already in resinhttp://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?prodId=prod1160088a>>20260384Considering he was deader than dirt I doubt that. Doubly so since they specifically mention being a "bearer" of some kind
>>20260379Helveticus the Ancient, Bearer of Honour RE "RE" Meaning Resin.The collector's piece reissue seems most likely.If the list is in any way accurate and not just an elaborate troll.
>>20260394They wouldn't be releasing it as "a banner bearer", they're releasing the model, because it's 2nd Edition Era Nostalgia. It's for collectors.Seriously nigger, this isn't a hard concept.
>>20260401yes, I get that much.It's still a weird choice to release, even for 2nd edition nostalgia purposes.
>>20260348Should have knownSo now the smurfs are gonna have a; Chapter Master, Captain, Terminator Captain, Librarian, Chaplain, Techmarine, Scout and Banner Bearer, assuming that Agemman and Helvecticus have rules.>Inb4 the most talented apothecary in the imperium of man shows up in smurf blue
I don't care if it was intended as a troll. My WANT will make this so.
>>20260395At least a lot of the ork list is stuff that I've seen in other rumor lists. The plastic mega armor, buggies and deffkopptas. I don't know other armies fluff that well but I could see GW making new casts of old models, or re-purposing models.
>>20260407>implying Sgt. Chronus is a techmarinehe's just a tank pilot
What do the numbers mean? Product codes? Dates somehow?Or can I "only" see what/how a model will be released?
>>20260407He's been around since second ed dude.>>20260406Agreed. Everything on this reeks of someone who's seen player's wish lists online and gone "I'll compile all that shit into a bullshit troll"Plastic Sisters, New Tau Shit, New Ork Shit. It just seems way too good to be true. Helvecticus is a curve ball, sure, but he's there so people will come to the very same conclusion we just have - "he's a collectors piece". Someone will no doubt chime in that a "random" choice like Helveticus proves the lists authenticity. I say, that's why he was put in there at all. Because it's a very good troll.I don't even buy the "We're doing the Hobbit as a game." Because of the new LEGO LOTR range. Lego couldn't, and thus didn't, release an LOTR range until now because GW had exclusive rights to "miniatures" with New Line Cinema. The fact that Lego has released "miniatures" for LOTR now, seems to indicate that the exclusivity deal hasn't been renewed. So I'm doubtful that any aspect of this is true.Not saying it's not POSSIBLE that it's true, but I doubt it.
>>20260417>At least a lot of the ork list is stuff that I've seen in other rumor lists. A rumour isn't confirmed by another rumour, retard.The troll has probably also seen those "rumour lists" which are often little more than wish listing themselves.
>>20260444yes rumors are rumors and what I'm talking about are some of the stuff I saw months ago. I see this as some evidence.

>>20260424You ever been to /x/?You know those thread where people put out a date and then throw down a load of random numbers and say "it will happen"?Same principal could be at work here. Random numbers that show a degree of continuity between them to give the sembelance of meaning. People who see the list try to "interpret" the nonsense, when really they're just projecting their own desires onto what they WANT the numbers to mean.Or, if this is legit, it's an internal thing at GW. I'm still thinking it's a pretty big IF though.
>>20260453>I saw some rumours months ago>Now I see new rumours now that repeat those old rumours>that means the rumours are trueYou're beyond hope.If you want it to be true, fair enough, have hope. Just don't use such retarded non-logic to justify your hope.

>>20260524no, which is why the validity of the list is in question
Is it just me, or does the lack of fantasy info make one think that it's fake?
>>20260527No.The list is fake. A very good fake, but fake. There is nothing to verify it, so stop getting your hopes up.
>>20260549Plastic Greater daemons have already been confirmed before this list
>>20260553>I saw a rumour once, and now I see another rumour, thus it's a confirmation.Uhuh...Source?
Ok GW has a 'plastic budget'. In a nut shell there is only a limited amount of resource per year to make plastic dies and it's limited more of less to about 30-40 dies per year (I think that's now gone up to about 50 or so in the past few years, my friend doesn't get to read the invoices anymore). This is then shared across all three ranges and anything extra they may be making.New armies always get the lions share of the Dies (Typically 5 to 8. it depends mostly how long the army has been without an update or how much of the product line is already plastic) , plastic is lower continuing costs and always sells in higher volume.Sisters, in need of a lot of attention to hope to make them sell.Seven products, three of which are plastic.Space Marines, a safe line that needs barely any attention. (Hence why BA only got four, GK 3)Thirteen products, ten of which are plastic.
This is obviously a fake list put out by GW so they can "surprise" you with the upcoming Blood Raven Codex.
Sorry to bring some bad news but if this product list is the one I think it is, the soonest we'll see any of these is mid-late next year and it'll be going till mid-late 2014.I know for a fact at least half of what is written is true (The rest I just haven't heard of at all) but the dates are an issue.
>>20260578>I know for a fact at least half of what is written is trueBut you can't give us any verification of this, I suppose. Because if pushed you'll claim you work at GW and could lose your job for revealing that, right?God damn, trolls need new material.
>>20260563Sorry, correction.Marines17 products, 14 plastic.That is a fucking HUGE chunk from the Plastic Budget all for a faction that is already starting to show the very early signs of over-saturation.
People have faked whole rulebooks and codexes before, never underestimate the power of autism.
>>20260578>I know for a fact at least half of what is written is true
>>20260566Implying that a Bloody Magpie dex wouldn't be fantastic. >mfw Blood Ravens using Vulkan He'stan's cloak while riding DA bikes and using Pedro Kantor's Dorn's Arrow SB.
My dad works for Nintendo and he says Sisters of Battle are getting twenty new plastic sets. He even sent me some back from Japan. No you can't see them.
>>20260582Marines are true.Sisters are iffy, I'm out of that loop.Orks are true.Chaos Marines are true.Chaos Daemons are iffy, again, I'm not in that loop.Tau are true.Everything else I don't know.I don't get in trouble for that much. I have no dates but none as I understand it are within this year as I would have at least heard that much.I can't confirm what they look like, I only ever see brown cardboard (If at all) and order, invoice sheets.My NDA prevents me from giving specific names or product codes and I don't bother memorising anything anyway.That help?
>>20260621You're full of shit and we don't believe you.Restating the same lie twice, and even USING the troll technique I accused you of doesn't make you more believable you dumbfuck.
The sheer amount of Marines releases confuses me, given how bloated their rulebooks are getting.The inclusion of Neophytes makes me wonder if some of those are Black Templar releases though. If they release the rest of the Marine chapters in last editions on-off format I guess that'd make sense?
>>20260621How do you explain the sheer amount of Marine plastic box sets in that list? That's most of GW's plastic budget.
>>20260634NO!Stop, bad /tg/ user. The guy is obviously full of shit. Any question he can't come up with an answer to he'll either say "HUURR NDA" or "HURRR not my department".He's trolling.

>>20260666Satan, it's FAKE
>>20260632Marines are starting to show over-saturation.All six armies together account for roughly a third of total 40k sales but when the products are broken down individually, a good half the line are lagging behind 'expected' sales. This has just gotten worse over the past four years as marines per codex have more items then any other faction and more plastic options then any other faction. Despite there being many buyers, too many options mean that less overall is being shifted.GW has been trying to fix this for a while with individualising each marine faction to 'force' players to collect less homogeneous armies but they didn't think to hard about it and it's had the side effect of increasing the amount of options out there.They are looking at ways to restructure the Marines to pick up their flagging sales but like all big companies it's short term profits over long term growth and marines still remain the big sellers so it's unlikely anything will be done till much later.
>>20260671you cant prove its fake

>turin the dragonslayer>no glaurung the first dragonwut? sage for warhams
>>20260707Nothing proves it's authenticity.Ergo, it's fake.Read the thread.
>>20260638Because it's the fucking truth?I can't prove anything without becoming guilty of corporate espionage, insider trading or breaking the terms of my employee contract, etc...I have no clue why Marines have 13 (maybe more) plastic dies. It makes no fucking sense to me nor my colleagues. We are not the purse-strings, the brains, the heart, the lungs or liver of the company.We are the bowels, sorting and shipping the shit that will be released on the public.My best guess is that the purse strings are not paying attention and thought 'Hey, marines sell, lets flood the market.'That or there is three or more Marine Codices coming in the next year and a half.
>>20260719Nothing disproves it.
I hope its real, but seriously, adding The Cabal to the game? I know there's been a lot of rumours about adding to the metaplot, with the Dark Angels and the battle against Chaos taking centre stage in 6th Ed canon, but seriously adding the Cabal?!That is crazy.
I WANT TO BELIEVE.Does seem to roughly match Matt Ward's apparent intention to bring old school stuff back into the new edition.
>>20260738So, you're retarded then. You assume truth when there's nothing to verify it.>>20260725>Because it's the fucking truth?No, it isn't. You're talking shit. Stop pretending you work at GW and confirming/denying shit. It's the most common troll technique in these threads.
>>20260725Why is there a 'plastic budget'? Why would plastic be that much more expensive than resin?
>>20260739Another reason to doubt that this shit is in any way real.
I think they are making more plastic kits since the the resin kits/squads are so expensive they don't sell well.
>>20260725>I can't prove anything without becoming guilty of corporate espionage, insider trading or breaking the terms of my employee contract, etc...HURRRR NDA>We are not the purse-strings, the brains, the heart, the lungs or liver of the company.HURRRRRRR NOT MY DEPARTMENTMy god, it's trolling by rote.
>>20260764You have no idea how expensive injection moulds are.
>>20260764Plastic isn't expensive, it's really fucking cheap.Plastic Dies on the other hand.One 'Clam' Die costs around $4,000 dollars to make.One Sliding Die is on the range of $10,000 dollars.Resin and Metal Molds on the other hand are $1,000 at the most. Normally $500 give or take.These prices are more then a decade old though, don't know if it's changed at all.
>>20260840Try adding a one and two zeroes to each of those "dies" for the cost of an injection mold. Those prices have decidedly increased, $4,000 dollars is peanuts.
>>20260780Except if he was telling the truth those are the exact answers he could give without actually risking losing his job.Now I realise that he is most likely not from GW, that much is a given, but to go full on autism HURR DURR mode on someone who, while he cannot prove his claim is the truth, could be telling the truth and is providing THE ONLY RESPONSE HE COULD GIVE, Is fucking dumb and makes you just as bad as him, and if he IS telling the truth, it makes you much, much worse. The correct answer if you think he's a troll would probably be"This guy is probably bullshitting you /tg/ believe it if you want but otherwise move on, sage for troll thread"Hey look at that you politely expressed your doubt without going full retard how about that.
>>20260988The fact the thread was off the front page means you had to look for it, to go out of your way to see that post, to make a point about it.I'm not really sure why you bothered. I suspect you're probably the troll the hurrdurr guy exposed, who is now butthurt. Can't prove it, but it seems likely.
It's $4000 for a basic level mould for a simple shitty sculpt. Not a 'bad for Citadel miniatures' sculpt; like a sculpt of a fucking ball.As I understand it, the level of detail on Citadel shit these days means that producing a large-size set of dies, for a sprue like the ones in vehicle boxes, costs some $200,000. That means every fresh box is expensive as fuck, even with using old sprues. The ones that are all new are even worse. The development process of the Hammerhead cost a million dollars or some shit, between needing a shitload of entirely new vehicle dies and the standard costs.
>>20261024Fuck, no wonder their shit's so expensive.
>>20261012It was on the front page when found it, it'll have just gone off by the time I read it all (I probably shouldn't have gone for a cup of tea).As for why I made a post? Even on the internet I find people being dicks for no reason other than they can, to be pretty offensive, especially on /tg/ which I like to think of as one of the more civil boards on 4chan and pissing on your own doorstep like that is what turned boards like /v/ to shit
>>20261058Yes, they are three words I used in my post taken out of their proper context. What of it?
>>20261060You seem upset. Like it or not, people are cunts online. You're going to have to accept that.
>>20261012This thread isn't all that hard to find. I regularly hit Google for recent mentions of "Sisters of Battle" to see if there are any new rumors (plus some boolean searching to keep the stuff for sale from showing) and I found it that way.Honestly I -want- to believe, but am remaining doubtful. I'm filing this under "I hope it's real (but won't be upset if it isn't)".
>Plastic CostsA relative of mine owns an injection moulding factoryHe makes shitty window catches and plastic panels to raise windows as the glue is drying.The dies cost like £40,000 each (Dude £40K!)I don't want to think what a GW cast would cost.>That listWould love this list to be real, plastic sisters and aspects... but its just too long and too good to be true
>>20261067I do accept it, but if I dont at least TRY to get someone to be a bit nicer about expressing their thoughts on something. Then I may as well abandon all my beliefs that humans aren't a race of total fuckbags since a belief without any action to back it up is pretty worthless imo.
Can't we just agree that it may be or may not be true and move on ?We know that rumours are rumours, we know that "not my department" and "NDA" are the most overused excuses ever.We all have our dose of salt, so can we carry on and dream on now ?
>>20261024So you're telling me I couldn't just get a 3D printer and make whatever models I want?
>>20261110Honestly, I believe that everyone can be more than they are too. That's not to say I'm going to waste time trying to "educate" someone online to "be a better person". Mainly because they'll just adopt a different persona online, especially on an anonymous image board.You are literally wasting time and energy on them, because you're not interacting with them on any real level - just a persona they adopt, sometimes differing between posts. Also, I suspect you do it not for some altruistic reason, but for a sense of satisfaction.
>>20261135Yup>New tau stuffOhgodboner
>>20261135Well, honestly I think that would be silly behaviour to encourage. We literally have nothing to even allude to it being true, whilst all logic points to it being a fake.
$200,000 per sprue doesn't sound unreasonable, it matches what I've heard about plastic tooling costs. This thread is way more entertaining if we take the leak as legit. If its fake, then meh. If its real, OH THE POSSIBILITIES. Much more fun.So lads what if this is legit? What things on that list make you excited?
>>20261197But that kind of attitude just leads to a lot of false hope. People will mistake the enthusiasm and discussion of it as a proof of legitimacy.
>>20261166> Tau Empire Nautilus Defence Platform???
>>20261163It may be a waste of time but there's still the chance that for that one person that it isn't no? And yes I do it because I get some satisfaction out of it, though not the sort I think you're implying there. The satisfaction comes from the knowledge that I tried, success or no, at least I tried, sitting back and ignoring shit like that just doesn't sit right with me. You appear to feel differently and that for some people in some places there isn't a point, well that's fine too, we are different people and will go about stuff different ways. Provided we don't seriously offend people who cares really.
>>20261218Geez, we're all adults here. I think we all know to take this with a grain of salt, and there's no way to confirm or disprove it for ages in any case. Can we just have a bit of fun discussing it? We discussed the fuck out of Pancake when it came out and there was exactly as much proof for that being real as there is for this.
>Tau>SoB>ChaosSeems legit to me. Plus >Obsideo AssassinHNNNG NEW ASSASSIN TEMPLE? YESSSSSCan't wait for all that Finecast or even more cheaper plastic.
Anyone who doubts it didn't follow the source links.
>>20261260Please no finecast.

>>20261273I went digging for more source and found some more information actually.>Note: does not contain re-releases, non-miniature products or the miniature range with codes below 2xxx>Note: contains only boxes that are currently NOT in mass production, expect release beginning in june 2013 at the earliest, the >bulk of the releases for the first movie are done by then >Note: leaked before the announcement of the third movie, unknown if this is accounted for>Note: not every release has to be based on the movie, Games Workshop has released miniatures before that were omitted by >PJ, like Glorfindel, Elladan & Elrohir, and so onhttp://pastebin.com/9EC3qw3bI'm curious for this to pan out either way just so we get some resolution on it.
>>20261324I think most of those notes are about the LoTR minis and not the 40k ones.
>>20261273Followed the source links to a pastebin.Yeah, totally seems like it would be legit, and not just something a troll put out there to "be discovered".
>>20261351Right, but the note that "does not include models already in mass production" tells me that it's probably a list about stuff coming next year, not this year.
>Sisters>Deffwotch>Orky things.Fuck you, GW, I wasn't going to buy more of your jew minis anymore!!>Helveticus the Ancient, Bearer of Honour RE "I have shown you my honour. Now show me your honour, my honour demands it!"
Maybe GW's just putting out one streamlined muhrehn codex, including lists/flavour for the various space marine legions in one book. This would explain the influx of new characters/legion specific units coming out as well as the new vehicles, which seem like 'dex release fodder. Although GW is not famous for clever marketing/sales techniques so I doubt this will happen. =
>>20261728Holy shit, that Codex'd be twice the size of the main rulebook.
This list is kinda disappointing to me. I have to wait until 2013 to get plastic Noise Marines, having to settle with the current shitty metal/plastic hybrids till then. Alll of the new loyalist stuff indicates that they might be getting a new codex soon, despite having a solid 5th edition codex Aside from that, everything else looks good. Tau, SOB, Black Templars, Orks and Eldar, are in need of updates, and if this is any indication, they'll be getting them.
I've recently started collecting Necrons and sworn that i'll get sob and tau as soon as they get an (proper,not white dwarf) update; i'm not sure whether or not i should buy metal sob models now before they'll get replaced because i like metal models more (plastic feels kinda cheap and that hurts considering how much they cost)
>Plastic Sisters>Deathwatch>Genestealer HybridsHmmmm.
>Cabal Tarellian Cotor with Dragontongue I want to believe so fucking hard. But I've been burned many times before.
>owns 2k of on foot sisters>owns 3k of on foot orks>owns 3k chaos marines and chaos guard>owns 3k of eldar, mostly expensive models like dragons/scorpians/wrait guard>ENTIRE RELEASE PANDERS TO NEARLY ALL OF MY ARMYSMy wallet is CRYING
It is as though a thousand wallets cry out in pain!
Anyway, I have a question. That 'leaked' beta 6ed rulebook that was around about a year ago – was it (probably) legit?I know I'm a slowpoke and also I don't know shit about the actual tabletop. It's just to sate my curiosity.
Only about 5 Tau releases.Well, at least I can rest easy knowing my decision to quit won't come back and bite me in the ass later.
>>20262441only 2 guard
>>20259461>>20259461I...plastic sisters.I..I don't think I can believe it. I've been burned to many times GW.B..Baka!Don't think this makes me forgive you!
>Chaos Bike Squadron>Plastic Noise Marines>Plastic Thousand Sons>Plastic Stormtroopers>Plastic Hydra>Plastic Neophytes>All dem Ork releasesFeels TOO good man
>>20262441 These are "1+ years out" models. Not in mass production. This does not include things already in warehouses ready to ship. So its possible all the Tau we see are "2nd wave" things. This explains why so much Space Marines, Orks, etc. They aren't "one giant wave" but spread out. Same for Chaos having so few options too. I would assume its all held back for the following plan. It is what I would do if I were GW marketing.>Release starter set>Release DA & CSM codexes + models>If they sell good, then move marine and chaos productions to the front-ish of the line for immediate release.>If they sell poor, then release something else to see if that sells well.>Sells well? Release next wave of it! If you look back, this method works according to prior releases...Daemons came out, it did not sell amazingly well and the codex was frowned at. So all the 'new' released we have now were pushed back to let the fallout settle. Then with 6th coming out, they dropped the 'update' and new models. People will be willing to try Daemons out in a new ruleset because it isn't a "known fact" that they "suck or dont suck" - throw in new models to the mix? Suddenly sales!-continued-
>Tau get like 3 thingsWow. Fuck this shit.
>>20263008 Same for "summer of fliers" - they waited because of reactions to rumors and other sale factors. Same with Sisters of Battle... they have a ton of metal stock they want to try and sell first. I promise you this is how it is going down.>We have 20,000 units of Sisters! They aren't selling in $45+ boxes sir.>Okay break it to blisters. People want to add odd and ends. Anyone who wants a sister metal army will already have it. So we will get rid of what stock we can to those who want odds and ends... release a new codex via WD to keep them playable(ish)>What about plastic?>Hold off on that until X year or Y asset movements. If it does not sell by X year, melt it and sell the metal off. What-ever can't be replaced by resin or plastic, add it to the 'collector's range.'Yes, that means our metal sisters, unbought. Forever alone in the darkness of the warehouses...will one day be opened to face the furnace. Unsold. No enemy ever purged for the emperor. Where do you think the metal grey knights went? Sold for a marginal profit in this metal economy.I have no sources to say this is, for fact, what GW does. However I have 24 years experience in warehouse management for similar products (metal parts for various businesses. Engines, fixings, etc.) What we can't sell sits in the warehouse for X years. After X years is up, we usually sell it for scrap / send it off to be melted down for other uses.
>>20263019Is....is that what I think it is?
>>20263019THAT'S A FUCKING PRISM TANK FROM RED ALERT
>>20262228It wasn't, but hell, it was a sweet ruleset all the same.
>>20263019Sad story bro.
>>20262480Yeah, that's my feelings on it. I mean, I've been wrong about these things before (Dark Eldar not getting squatted for instance) but there's just TOO much stuff on this list that seems like it's straight from /tg/'s wishlist.Not least the idea that GW plans ahead on this scale.
>>20263019I choked up a little... Those poor dear sisters.
>>20263099Why are Tau crying about dead sisters?
>>20263019...Deep within the bowls of near eternal darkness, the ten sisters of battle sat within plastic containment. The two stuck together in one pocket of plastic had been good friends for well over a decade now."Sister Maria-kun...when will we get to serve the Emperor?" she would ask at least once a week. Ready to hear the comfort from her superior."Nisa-chan...soon. Soon we will show them the Emperor's fury." Maria would always reply in a confident tone.This dance of emotional support spun on for years... one day, though. One day everything shifted. Jostled from sleep, Sister Nisa exclaimed, "Maria! Maria! We're moving! We're going to get to serve the Emperor!"
>>20263146"Yes Sister Nisa!" replied Maria with excitement.Soon, light filled their world. The dim blue gray of overhanging light-tubes. The plastic was opened, and the sisters were dumped with their squad into a massive bucket filled with other sisters."Maria! Where are you?!" Nisa yelled"Here here, over here!" Maria jostled her way over the other sisters to Nisa, "Surely this will be the largest holy war the Soritas has ever seen or will see!" Thousands of Sisters of battle yelled praises to the Emperor as they were dumped into a lead bowl. "A transport?" questioned Maria, as the cold metal touched her. The world moved again, and orange light filled the air and their bucket was placed into an enclosure."Its hot Sister Maria-kun! Its hot!" exclaimed Nisa in panic."Don't worry Sister Nisa-chan. We will serve the Emperor. We are protected!" she said as pewter droplets began to form on the surface of her armor and roll off into the container. "The Emperor protects!"That was the last word from the sister as her face boiled away and pooled into the bottom of the container... in a matter of minutes the super heated oven had turned all the Sisters into a pewter bar. Ready to be melted into other forms or separated for its various metals.
>>20263146you bastard, I don't even collect sisters but I want to save those little metal girls...Fuck you /tg/ I don't have the money to do this, but now I'm going to have to buy at least one blister.Seriously.You fucks are worse than GW,
>>20263170If I had internet arms, I'd reach through my monitor and strangle you.
>>20260745so maybe LORD SWAG has seen that we have cried out in the wilderness for the glories of old, and has smiled upon us with his vest and gleaming pocketwatch?
>>20263170>>20263146Y-you... You... You... YOU BASTARD! WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY NISA-CHAN!!!!!!!
>>20263170And later we find out they're all now melted into Kaldor Draigo miniatures.
>>20263208>>20263185>>20263171>>20263169I'm sorry guys...forgive me.If I win the lottery I -will- buy all of GW's produced metal sisters slated for slag.
>>20263223So that they can forever serve the Emperor?
>>20263221SHUT YOUR MOUTH SHUT IT SHUT IT OF THE HERESIES JUST SHUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTHThose sisters... They didn't deserve that... No one deserves that...
>>20263226 Indeed! Ave Imperator! I have about 2K metal sisters as it is right now.
>>20263248I beg you; hold them and love them and aid them and with them write their glories upon the flesh of defeated neckbeards!For those who can't... Please...
>Own a Sisters army.>Read this thread.I.. I feel like taking the girls out for a spin...Don't worry, I don't care you aren't too pretty, you are perfect just the way you are.
>>20263170Oh god its toy story 3 all over again.
>>20263259 I will never lose them. I have lovingly scraped away bad paint jobs that even 2 weeks of chemical soaks would not save. I have put weeks of effort into saving my sisters from gaudy paint... I will hold them close and protect them.
Fuck this thread, I'm actually crying.
I... I Have the strangest urge to take pics of my sisters now...If nothing else just to remind myself they deserve to be played again. Hell they own tournies for me I owe them that.
>>20263304>I'm actually crying.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxulantPiXI
My god, the SoB are finally getting plastic kits. I might actually buy them now, they were way too expensive before.
That's right, goyim! You should probably buy 10 boxes of metal Sisters RIGHT NOW to save them!
I'm going to finish my necron army.Then instead of buying freebooter allies for them I'll buy a detachment of sisters for my Iron Hands army.And I won't cast them in resin, I-I don't think I have the heart to....For the Emperor little pewter girls, for the Emperor...
>>20263332THAT DIDN"T HELP AT ALL
>>20263352I wonder who's behind that post..
>>20259689>SHAS'O SHEP'ARD, WHY DOES THIS THING HANDLE LIKE A PIECE OF SHIT
>>20263360Leave them unpainted just as a statement.
>>20263377But, won't they be happy to be painted up, standing in full uniform ready to serve?
>>20263221>>20263221>>20263221>>2026322110/10 my sides are moving on their own and my jimmies are decimated like the aftermath of someone jumping into a pile of leaves
>>20263398So you're angry yet laughing really hard?
>>20263322>>20263332Why would you both do that?
>>20263332I WASN'T CRYING BEFOREBUT NOW I AMAND I PLAY CSM, THIS SHOULDN'T BE HAPPENING
>Plastic SistersBy the Emperor please let it be true.
>>20263348Only two and a half.No repressor, no militia, no new units except for the duel exorcist/coffin carrier, no flyer or anti-air.It seems that what the Sisters are getting is what they should have got back in 2004 with C:WH.It took them eight years to do what every other army has already. The release isn't large enough to be a new dex wave so it looks like the WDex is being altered slightly and will remain on.So, it took GW 8 years to tell us it'll be several more till they give a shit?
Write-fag here...should I...do more?It is my only means to honor the brave, and battle-less battle sisters.
>>20263425Yup,pic related followed by remembering the Kaldor Draigo video and imagining an elaborate scenario that goes something like this:Neckbeard had finally brought Draigo down...it was a bittersweet moment. His opponent reached over to remove Draigo from the table. "Wait" blurted Neckbeard. His opponent gave him a strange look as Neckbeard leaned down to put his face next to Draigo."Are you there...Nisa-san?"
>>20263496The Reclamation of Lost Hope <2012>/tg/ buys all the Kaldor Draigo metal models and melts them back into Sisters.Said act is finalised by much weeping and "It's ok, it won't hurt any more..."
>>20263321I played a small game with them. They seem pretty decent in 6th, honestly.
>>20263543They actually are quite decent on 6th. With IG allies to handle pot-holes.
If true, pic SO related

"Something interesting in regards to creditability, If you look at the Hobbit releases, there are several names units and characters that do *not* exist in the Tolken mythology, yet I know from my work sources exist in the New Line/Peter Jackson Mythology that have not yet been announced and you will not find any hits for on Google.Make of that what you will. "-warseer
>>20262853>>20263075To prove that i AM slow, I would like to thank you now.
>>20263640Again, if teh release line and actual released Jacksonian fluff stuff starts lining up *heavily* with this leak (And not the one-off "Oh hey, they released one of these 50ish things so it must be true!" kind of verification), then I'll lend it some serious credence.
>Sister figures right before going into the smelting crucible.‘Lo there do I see my father‘Lo there do I see my mother, and my sisters, and my brothers‘Lo there do I see the line of my order, back to the beginning‘Lo they do call to meThey bid me take my place among themIn the halls of the EmperorWhere the faithfull…may live…Forever!”
Wasn't there a big blow-up with the LotR game because GW spoiled movie info by releasing shit early. Newline probably isn't going to be too happy about this either, even though a list of names is relatively minor I guess.
>>20260223>Only three new Tau units.>One of which is a bullshit fortification that goes against their military doctrine.15% of my rage.
>>20263816Right, that does it, Eldar is offically on hold til these ladies are done.
>Turin, the DragonslayerI have some boners.. Look away. Look back. The boners are now Silmarils.I'm on Shadowfax.
>>20263917>not Turin, son of HurinHe's never called Dragonslayer in his own book.
>>20263906>Repentia>Harlies in the background.Impressive.
>>20263640will New Line sue GW for this leak?
>>20263948It's some crazy stuff though. Some kind of Grey Mountain Drake faction. The White Council. CIRDAN. It's weird the two Blue Wizards aren't listed, and I didn't see Radagast, either. Man, Radagast never catches a friggin break. At least Beornings are on there.
>still no plastic inquisitorial henchmenFuck you, GW
>>20263816>>20263816>manly tearsI WILL SAVE YOU!
I don't even PLAY the wargame, and I'm excited.
>>20264057Hopefully not. If they do however, we're probably going to be playing in New Line Workshop
Fuck, can't find a box set of sisters anywhere, Don't want to risk blisters online as last time I did that I ended up with a shit load of doubles. Haaaaaaalp.
I've not played 40k in years ...... but I've still got a small metal sister of battle army which I love.This thread almost makes me want to throw money at GW to save some more sisters.The thing is though, EVERY metal model you EVER liked has suffered the same fate, especially with the switch over to failcast.Failcast version gets released, metal version gets pulled, melted down, sold for scrap.
>>20264513Every time, then you just have to pray they do a new kit in plastic... Which they'll never do.
I just hope in the last decade or so they've acquired some sculptors that can do women's faces well.
>>20264704Judging from the DE line, nope.
What the fuck is a skyshatter cannon and can I convert it into a codpiece for my space marine captain?
Niggers, it looks like I'm finally getting a Sisters army.
>>20263917I love this comment, and I love you Anon, with a big, gay manly sort of love.
>>20260143But the new rules support terrain being bought as a list so having army specific terrain isn't so far off.
The plastic sister of battle tank crew parts were terrible, the heads were gigantic and looked awful.Though maybe its just my dislike of "heroic scale" coming through.If I remember right aren't the metal Sister of Battle sculpts old enough to be slightly less disproportioned in their "heroic"ness.

If this is fake, why the hell is it attached to a fuck-huge list of LOTR crap that the average rumour-making neckbeard would never give a crap about? Not to mention it came from a LOTR site so if it's attention-whoring it's the most indirect form of attention-whoring ever.

>>20263867>>20263017Hey, you, the dudes complaining about lack of Tau: these releases are allegedly for June 2013 and after. And given the sheer number of things, this must be well over a year's worth of stuff.Logical conclusion: Tau are coming out in the first half of next year.Another possible conclusion: this list is fake.
I'm taking this entire thread and list with massive, copious piles of salt. Mainly because I already have 30 marines with the metal sonic weapons, that being said if they look different or rather better than the ones now I might pick up a few to represent blastmasters or the flamer. most everything on the rest of that list though, unless it looks just way too fucking cool I'll probably not even think about picking it up. Honestly I wish I had 450 bucks just laying around right now so I could buy 8 more exalted chariots of slaanesh.
On Heresy, one of the rumour mongers said part of the list looks legit but the Newline IP items (Hobbit) cast some major doubts as Newline wouldn't stand for this and GW honestly risks legal action.On Warseer, a few of the other rumour mongers have said that contains things that are true, things they thought were completely false and things they just haven't heard of.The lot of them have said next time they get a chance they'll see if GW is laughing their collective arses off or writing their last will and testament.Until then, the soonest anything on this list could happen is may-june next year (Allegedly) and so just wait till then to see what comes through.The shear magnitude of the Marine stuff seems to confuse a lot of people.
>>20274063To clarify the Warseer one was someone pointing out why they think it could be fake by breaking all the 40k stuff down into those categories. They're not a rumor monger, just a spectating spectator like the rest of us.
>>20274063>>20274420I've been reading similar things from Harry and Stick Monkey. However this is from Dakkadakka.com
>>20274063>The shear magnitude of the Marine stuff seems to confuse a lot of people.I'm not sure why. There are still two Space Marine codexes that need updating, and given how much money GW gets from Marine releases, it wouldn't surprise me if we see Black Templars and Dark Angels both released within the next 12-18 months. It wouldn't surprise me if most of the stuff in the list will fit into either of those two books, plus some general character/HQ releases that can fit into any of the Marine codexes.
>>2027487525 items, 14 of which are plastic.The problem is that is far to much for even two Marine releases, it'd have to be three minimum.And Marines often receive the short end of the stick in terms of releases because they get them five times as often and a damn sight more regular then any other faction in the game.Who knows, with DA, BT and vanilla SM all coming up this list represents all their first and maybe even second wave releases. But as it stands it doesn't make all that much sense without context.
