There has been a sharknado of crazy releases from GW coming at us as of late, but it it over? From these rumors it looks like we’re about to go over 9000!
Collated together from a variety of sources on BoLS:
Death, Skaven repacks (AoS)
Stormcast Eternals release “Significant” in size (AoS)
Chaos (Khorne) Releases (AoS)
Destruction Release Window, 3 weeks (AoS)
Roughly analogous to the Fyreslayer window with “big monster, an infantry unit, a cavalry unit, and several clampack characters. Plus the obvious book of course.” Oruks only releases.
“HH range should kick off in the spring. April-May time. As you already know the Calth stuff will kickstart the range, with boxes labelled for 30k and 40k.
The plastic Mechanicum stuff was intended to work over as part of the core Heresy too.”
Now how does that stack up to our previous rumor roadmap from January. Let’s take a look:
Chaos: Grand Alliance AoS Happened
Order: Grand Alliance AoS
Death: Grand Alliance AoS Happened
Destruction: Grand Alliance AoS RUMORED SOON
Death Release Window (starring an undead giant) AoS
Space Wolves Release Window 40K Happened Space Wolves vs Chaos Daemons Campaign 40K Happened
Horus Heresy Plastic Reboxes Release Window 40K
Betrayal at Calth Boxed Game Sequel 40K
Oruks Release Window (starring a Wyvern) AoS RUMORED SOON
Duardin Release Window (starring a construct) AoS
Deathwatch Boxed Game 40K Happening
Any Specialist Game Release (I would be shocked if they had any ready in time, but you never know)
Well looks like there may be more Age of Sigmar on the way and less on the 40k side overall. It may be that GW is committed Age of Sigmar, or perhaps these products were already in development since day one, so they have to get them to market!
Perhaps we’ll see less Age of Sigmar release after June when Games Workshop’s fiscal year is over, perhaps not. Either way opinion seems to be divided whether the game is a “winner” sales wise- with some folks praising it and some bashing it in equal measure.
All bets may be off then the rumored AOS backlog is pushed out the door however, and the Sales numbers come rolling in to Nottingham for the year.
-If you were GW, is Age of Sigmar a keeper?
