[Archive] Piecing together the release schedule


Secondly, it doesn't feel like that long ago that the last warhammer rulebook came out. Like, doesn't seem that long at all?

Yup, four years just flies by...

I wanna be sixteen again.

Border Reiver:

Yeah - 1985 was a good year for minis.


There has been some rumblings on Bolter and Chainsword that seem to indicate more Space Marines even after Blood Angels (perhaps back to the “Angels of Death” style codex, where Dark Angels get re-upped too).



I have heard TKs is before OKs, can’t confirm it though, so just rumours and heresay.


GW has announced that October will be about High Elves:

This October is devoted to the scions of Asuryan, as we release a series of new High Elf miniatures.

The High Elves are the noblest of races, the remnant of a once-mighty civilisation that spanned the globe. The titanic destruction unleashed by the Daemons of Chaos and the monstrous betrayal of the Dark Elves left their nation a shadow of its former might and glory, and yet the High Elves fight on. For millennia they have stood sentinel against the depredations of Chaos, thwarting the machinations of the Dark Gods over and again, and though their population has dwindled, the skill and determination of their armies remains steadfast.

In battle, the armies of the High Elves are a glorious sight to behold. Ranks of elite soldiers clad in unspotted white and glittering silver stand against the dark tide of the Forces of Destruction. With a mystical grace and agility that is incomparable to the lumpen, slothful gestures of lesser mortals, they cleave through the foe with spear and blade - their skill and speed a match for any foe. Volleys of white-fletched arrows are sent slashing into the foe, accompanied by the heavier, deadlier shots of the Eagle Claw Bolt Throwers, which can punch through even the thickest armour. Powerful High Elf Mages direct the ebb and flow of the Winds of Magic to smite the foe with incandescent flames, or protect their allies with the dazzling power of Asuryan, the king of the Elven gods.

For more information about the High Elf releases in October, watch out for future newsletters, keep an on the Games Workshop website and check out October’s issue of White Dwarf.

Not much, I know. Would this include a book? or is it a second wave High Elves after Island of Blood and 8th ed?

Thommy H:

Second wave. They’re moving away from releasing entire ranges in one burst and going back to how it was back in the mid-late 90s with a definitive book followed by successive waves of figures to support it.


I’m sure it’s just a second wave. Look at the orc & goblins, they had a second wave just prior to the release of the 8th edition. Same with the Daemons, they’re getting a second release in August but no new book.
