There is some strong indications on the french warhammer forum that GW is preparing a massive announcement (the biggest since AoS) for 40K in March at the Adepticon.
Nobody knows what it is but some of our reliable rumourmongers said there is a disturbance in the force.
Something is coming and it's not just a new edition.

Don't mind me, just getting a word in before the 493 Primarch prediction posts that will inevitably follow this rumour. :P

This is clearly the earth shattering return of DORN-NOUGHT to challenge PERTURABO, ALPHA-OBLITERATOR into an Iron Cage rematch. Guilliman can sit in the sidelines this time.

As a reminder PA6 "Saga of the Beast" will be out in March (rumored on our forum to be Space Wolves vs Orks).
Does the Adepticon announcement has something to do with PA6 (return of Leman Russ ?) or would it be larger than that i do not know.

Following Orks vs Wolves in PA6, Ghaz vs Russ and 8.5 edition I’d guess
Armies: Ultramarines, Deathwatch, Custodes, Imperial Knights.
For the Emperor!

Maybe it's just 9th and it's actually massive?

Prime-orks.

ETA: But seriously (or am I already...), 9th Edition as a clean-up level revision of the current Rulebook and to make a new starter is pretty no-brainer. So we are probably looking at what the next stage of Psychic Awakening is going to be, and it’s going to escalate from the current stage-setting releases with like a random HQ here and there.

Man, why can’t LVO get all the love. Stupid Adepticon gets all the attention.

Hopefully we’ll get some sort of sneak peak early there.

With all the talk of GWs new production in the UK about to be operational I think it may be time for the flood gates to open.

Massive squatting of the old lines and a huge release of new minis for everyone!

According to the rumors up until now, 9th should be more of a 8.5th edition than a big shake up.

The two rumours aren't necessarily incongruous if the rules are more of a consolidation of the 8th ruleset, with only minor changes, but there is a seismic shift in the narrative's metaplot.

Agree, 9th should not be a big shake up rulewise but regarding the plot GW wants to move forward and could increase the pace even further.

Some of the speculation on the French board before the thread was taking down included the revival of the Emperor himself but i think it's too early for that, even if the current psychic awakening of the human race accross the Imperium could be of significant importance for a being that is maintained alive with psychic energy.

Yeah, but GW’s marketing department are going to push it like it’s the greatest thing since the invention of plastic.

Considering how GW overhype everything as AMAZING and EPIC and BLOW YOUR MIND YOU MUST WATCH, 9th edition being 'bigger than AoS 2E' does sound like a way they'd hype it up.

I'm sure their finance department see it as bigger.

Maybe I'm putting too much stock onto the wording "biggest thing since AoS", which would suggest something very larged indeed. Far larger than but the announcement of another primarch, which is what I had been expecting for a while. While such an announcement would certainly be big, it has already had its thunder stolen to some degree by the fact that we had a first primarch a while back. It couldn't really top that, by definition.

 

But Emp's returning is a whole 'nother level of jumping the shark, holy crud does that sound far fetched. It's also true that they overhyped PA something fierce, so might be the case here too (then again, this isn't even their wording, now is it?

im just taking it as  " BIGGEST EVER"

in GW speak as of late = " Beast Ghaz and Angron" Boy they are THE BIGGEST THINGS.

 

also giants for aos.

 

that means summer 2020 is literally the biggest* ever! GIANTS, BEASTS, and ANGRON OH mY

 

 

*biggest models

 

** biggest as in large infantry models

 

***not titans but sorta

 

GW lost the control rod for the hype train and it builds to much moment and GW doesnt course correct, instead they cheer it on

I would be personally happy with the Emps coming back.

If it is 9th I do hope they bring in alternative activation and please bring back weapons skill...

Interesting. I wonder if that's why they've been hyping up AdeptiCon quite early this time.

 

Considering how GW overhype everything as AMAZING and EPIC and BLOW YOUR MIND YOU MUST WATCH, 9th edition being 'bigger than AoS 2E' does sound like a way they'd hype it up.

I'm sure their finance department see it as bigger.

While I agree with you that GW have a tendency to always hype every Studio Preview as "THE BIGGEST AND MOST IMPORTANT EVER", the curious thing here is that this isn't coming from GW, but French hobbyists with, supposedly, insider info. So one would assume the hype talk would be filtered out of the rumour mill.

 

Still, given the recent rumours and how I personally see things going, it probably is 9th Edition. But however, as we can assume it'll be similar to AoS 2.0 in that it won't change the rules that much and be compatible with previous Codices, the most interesting part in my opinion is what 9th Edition will bring in terms of models. We've heard about either Orks or Necrons taking the spotlight this time, so if any of those rumours turn out to be true, it'll hopefully be a great start to an Edition, model-wise.
