These new rumors seem to indicate two things, either Oprah took over and ‘erebody is getting releases OR Games Workshop might be transitioning to ‘splash’ release strategy.

Either way I’m always down for new minis. I hope this leads to something bigger like new campaigns, or even some ‘second edition’ updated versions of older hard cover codices (Dark Angels, Chaos etc…).
