End Times: Thanquol (click for full roundup)

The portents were true, and not only are we getting a new End Times book, BUT we’re also getting a HUGE new Thanquol on Boneripper model to book. Plus the rules for the new Vermin Lord were in last weeks White Dwarf, and he looks poised to smash up the Olde World as well.


Harlequins (click for full roundup)

These guys were the talk of the weekend, and along with the Necron, should be the next 40k releases. BoLS is saying to be on the look out for a small mini-codex and all new range that will incorporate several all new plastic Harlequin kits backed up by several existing kits drawn from the Eldar/Dark Eldar ranges (mainly transports).


Necrons (click for full roundup)

Still on everyone’s minds BUT a bit silent over the weekend. We should Necrons in late January after End Times 4 runs it’s course.  This said to be a quick release centered around 1-2 miniatures including a new plastic Necron Lord.

Adeptus Mechanicus (click for full roundup)

According to BoLS there has been a low level of conflicting chatter regarding a mini-codex release of Adeptus Mechanicus in plastic centered around Skitarri doing the rounds.  

It is mainly centered around a single picture and many venerable rumormongers are saying they have heard nothing about it.  It may be super salt time for this one.
