Ork Wal HorzCome see what’s in the Speed Freeks box as new models are definitely inside, and we have the latest pricing on the Space Wolves as well.

Ork players may have to wait on their codex but it’s not all bad news. While you may be waiting, a new box for Orks is coming out. Let’s look at some of the biggest rumors we’ve seen so far that still stand after the Space Wolves announcement, and then check out that box!

Ork Rumors

BoLS posted a rumor a while back about what was coming to the Orks in 8th edition.

Industry rumormongers say to look for the following:

  • Look for the Orks to return about a year after 8th Edition arrived.
  • The Orks will return to the game in a major way with a large release.
  • There will be advancing storylines putting the Orks in the post great rift Imperium in a big way.
  • Multiple new kits are coming.
  • Many existing units will be changed substantially from their current rules.

Ghazghkull Rework

On top of that, Chapter Master Valrak had some word to say about a new model coming to the Orks in a video on YouTube.

I’ve been sent some information regarding Orks and their upcoming codex for 8th Edtion. Apparently, they will be getting new kits and a big push with the new story. Now I’ve personally heard that Prime Orks are going to be a thing for them, remember, bring your SALT!

He also posted on Bolter and Chainsword talking about Ghazghkull getting a new model. He called him the “Prime-Ork”.

Ghazz is going to receive a new model, prime Ork. New models on release of codex.

Q: Where is this information from? Wonder if it will be mentioned tomorrow, GW posted they were revealing some information tomorrow if I recall.

A: I have a chap that sends me stuff, the last thing he sent me was Knight Codex information about a week or two before GW announced it. Again I have to state, bring your SALT!

Apparently, Ghazghkull is going to be the only model getting the “Prime” status. More rumors could pop up between now and their release so who knows what other units Orks might be getting?

In keeping up with the lore, some of Orks have been fighting almost constantly against Tyranid Hive Fleets on various planets. We all know that Orks get bigger the more they fight. Maybe we could see some bigger Orks come from those battles against the Tyranids.

More Rumors

The latest on Space Wolves & Orks was spotted in a forum on B&C. A user by the name PJ1933 dropped a rumor. He didn’t say where he got the information from so be sure to take it with a heaping side of salt.

I am 99% sure that the SW codex will be pre order 25th August, no confirmation on any SW kits coming. Same weekend will see Hobbit/LotR battle of Pelannor fields box game up for pre order. No I will not be revealing where this came from but it’s not from BoLs or FLGS or any of the usual rumour mongers.

Of course, others chimed in on the thread and gave some more ideas on what could be coming.

Triszin said:

My guesstimate places wolves either Aug 25 or Sept 1st for preorders.
If all that’s preorderable same weekend is hobbit stuff, odds are good there will be space wolf kits
Expect to see wolves teased/showed off, same with orks at warhammer fest on Aug 18. Me thinks

Space Wolves are getting their codex first, but be on the lookout for the Ork codex right behind them. Hopefully, it’s in September and not something crazy like another month of waiting.

A Peek Inside Speed Freeks

It looks like we’ve got a sneak peak this morning of what’s inside the box. Spotted in the comments on Spikey Bits Hobbies.

GW seems to be favoring the colored plastic kits for all of their box sets lately. Take a look at the sprues inside Speed Freeks for yourself.
What appears to be the long-awaited buggy looks to be on the right in yellow, with four wheels and guns galore.  In red appears to be some sort of hot rod with molded fenders around its wheels, and a gun copula too boot.

Looks like there are a ton of different bases for this box as well I guess good for a box that may contain all the models listed above?

Keep an eye out for the very latest on this HOT release.

Update: Warhammer Community Just released this video showing some of the new models:

If you missed the prices of  all the Space Wolf releases later this week, you can check them all out now as well:

Tooth and Claw $150

tooth and claw

 

In Tooth and Claw, the Space Wolves – now reinforced by the Primaris Space Marines – descend upon Vigilus to crush the insidious Genestealer Cults. This is no mere uprising – positioned in one of the only relatively stable channels between each half of the galaxy, Vigilus is both the gateway to the beleaguered “Imperium Nihilus” and a citadel against the Black Legion, Orks and all manner of threats from without. Should the Space Wolves fail, the consequences would be devastating…

Tooth and Claw has new models GW claims you won’t find anywhere but there.

Space Wolves Primaris Upgrade Sprue $12.50

sw primaris upgrade

 

Space Wolves Codex $40

datacards

Datacards aren’t necessary to play the game but it’s definitely recommended to have them. It has all of your Stratagems and Psychic powers in one easy spot for you.

Space Wolves Dice set $30

Roll in style with the Space Wolves dice set.

With an early preview of Speed Freeks and Space Wolves prices already confirmed, it’s an exciting time to be playing either of these factions. Be on the lookout for the Ork codex next once the Space Wolves hype passes. What do you think about the Speed Freeks box? When do you think Orks will release now that Space Wolves are at the front of the line? Let us know in the comments of our Facebook Hobby Group.
