Rumors: The Rumor Section is gathered from the web and is not in any way information we receive from  any manufacturer nor is it necessarily accurate. This section of the podcast is intended for entertainment purposes only.

  •  We stand corrected, Baal is pronounced like Bail, not Ball. Oh well, that joke was short lived. But, rumors is that very soon we will be seeing a new box set called Deathstorm with some cool minis in it! Sounds like a Termie Captain, Termies, Death Company and a Death Company Dread, and the Nids get 8 Stealers, Broodlord, and a Carnifex.
  • Apparently there will be two books for the Hobbit final movie: the Battle of Five Armies, one for skirmishes, the other for massed battles.
  • Blood Angels Tactical Marine box spotted? Rumored to come with both Grav and the long hoped for Heavy Flamer?!?! Too cool if true but counter-rumors indicate that it is not a new kit, just a reboxing.
  • Khaine is all sold out! Wow, that was fast. Apparently all of the Hardback books for the Endtimes were printed at the same time and they underestimated the demand. To compensate for this, they are moving forward the date of producing the softcovers. Rumors that Tyrion is now 700pts and Malekith has 2 version, one the Phoenix King, the other the Eternity King which weighs in at 1,000pts!

    The taurox conversion looks tremendous! Ive had 4 sitting in boxes looking sad but it may be time to finally build them. Hope that guy doesnt mind me getting some “inspiration” from his awesome work.

      Yeah, I agree, that is a slick conversion. I am sure he would be stoked to see his idea inspired others!

        The desire to make a Scion army in Tauroxes is rising.

        Such an awesome idea. Hard to work out the right models to buy ahead of time, so I’m sure heaps of people will be stoked to know which model works well as a tread donor. He should put up a picture of the taurox treads, powering the tigers 😛

    The Iguana TAG has been available for a year+. They are just advertising it because it’s part of their recommended next purchase to expand on Op:Icestorm. The Jotum TAG is in the PanOceania list in the same type of promotion. Just a heads up because its not a new release.

      Ah, thanks, Vidar.

    Great news on the specialist games front. I was a crying shame they let them fall by the wayside.

    If they had bothered to promote them and even God-forbid give the a small space in the GW store them may have had better success.

    I remember just after Epic Armageddon was released GW Australia refused to even stock the game and only relented under fan pressure. Also a player wrote on the specialist games forum that his local GW refused to allow people to play Epic in store! Jervis soon sorted that one out, probably the last really good work he did. Crazy business model.

      Yeah, it’s weird the choices they make at times.

    Yous guys doing 25% off for x-wing?

    • Reecius
      Reecius November 26, 2014 8:08 am

      Yeah, but stock is limited, its hard to get x-wing.

      • droozy November 26, 2014 9:45 am

        Ye! I want to expand into other games but have too many models to paint as it is. Figured x-wing was the way to go. What time are you open on friday?
