I'm honestly thinking that the only real new mini releases over the next few months will be more Primaris and a new Sisters of Battle line.

Sisters of Battle? Those models were good enough for players back in 1997, and they're good enough for players now! *shakes cane*

Ye the Primaris will be the new normal, so I fully expect their range to be expanded upon.
Guilliman does not even have his own box yet.

Sisters, fingers crossed. ;)

Hate to be the naysayer but I think we’re going to be looking at an AOS heavy year next year. This year there was a lot of 40K and I feel like GW are gonna switch it up a bit.
On the plus side, there should be plenty of Necromunda stuff according to all the promos. :)

I am curious to see wether the Necromunda gangs get any kind of 40K army treatment. I know that it doesn’t really work from a fluff perspective but everything that’s been released in a stand alone game for the last few years has had a full army release as well.
Maybe they could be part of a PDF-esqe militia army.
Unlikely I know, but still got me wondering.

Well the next couple of weeks will be Codexes for 40k, and Shadespire for AoS.

 

Then November rolls around, with Necromunda and hopefully some new gangs for it.

 

Then December we don't know. Could be Titanicus, could be Talisman, could be Bloodbowl teams, or AoS Malign Portents. There is definitely room for 40k next year, the past year had big AoS releases like Kharadron Overlords so I don't think they are entitled anything.

I don't understand this. Do the big 40k releases like Death Guard mean 40k isn't entitled anything? Or do you mean that AoS players aren't entitled anything but 40k players are?

I'm hoping that's not what you meant.

I think he’s just saying that just because we got lots of 40K releases this year doesn’t mean there will be lots of AOS releases next year.

And that’s true. But I’m still thinking we’re looking at more AOS stuff than 40K. Just a feeling based on noting. Most of the unsolved rumour engine pics do seem more AOS to me though.

On a more board-friendly note,I also believe we’ll see World Eaters get a full release late 2018. TS last year, Death Guard this year? GW has been having some great success with the big 4 Chaos Marine armies so far, don’t see why they’d change that.
And World Eaters seem a little more likely to me than Emperors Children.

Ignoring Codex books, what new 40K releases have we had since 8th dropped? I'm struggling to keep track.

And don't count bundles of existing product. That's like saying a new 9 pack of Diet Coke is a new product.

Corswain made a point earlier that 40k is having a big year with the new Primaris and Death Guard, so the next year will have much more AoS.

 

I was just saying that AoS actually has had a pretty big slate of releases as well, though I suppose the balance could shift in their favor a little bit.

The past year had big AoS releases like Kharadron Overlords so I don't think they are entitled anything.

 

 

On the other hand, Kharadron Overlords was the last major release for AoS and it was back in April. Everything since then (which barring the 2 characters includes Blightwar) has been a reboxing of existing models. We know November is Necromunda so that means that entire system won't have seen a significant release in at least 7 months. Would we accept that if it was 40k?

 

Ignoring Codex books, what new 40K releases have we had since 8th dropped? I'm struggling to keep track.

And don't count bundles of existing product. That's like saying a new 9 pack of Diet Coke is a new product.

 

The Primaris model range, and the Death Guard model range. Everything else has been a reboxing (either into a bundle or from a bundle into an individual release), or a Codex and Datacards.

Yikes, I didn't mean to escalate things.

I think it's important to be clear about the distinction between what GW should do, and what GW is likely to do given past behavior. And given GW's past behavior, I think it's important to remember that all players matter and deserve toys.

That's it all I was saying. AoS players are important and deserve toys. Eldar/Tyranid/Sisters of Battle players are important and deserve toys.

And now we can go back to speculating on what kind of Space Marine GW will probably release next.

Lol.
Green ones, I hope. But real Space Marines, not Primaris. I wanna see a plastic DA tacticals kit (like the BA one) and all the resin characters replaced with plastic.
