  •  No 40k until October, rumors indicate.
  • Tau will be the first release.
  • August will almost entirely focus on Chaos for AoS.
    • Expansions for Khorne similar to what we saw with the Stormcast Eternals.
    • Tzeentch to make an appearance at the end of August.
    • Supposedly, Tzeentch to get a lot of attention this year in both AoS and 40k, with the new multi-part plastic greater Daemon kit to be coming.
  • Rumors of Destruction being the next release for AoS, which is the Orrucks, Grots and Ogors. Plastic kits and textured, round bases to be coming out with them.

    Just wondering if there is any chance of a tournament report from Israel, I’d be really interested to know what he faced and how his list was played tactically?
