I heard a rumour today that GW are planning to launch a new race next year. Not human. Anyone else heard this?

Nope, haven’t heard anything about a new race for Warhammer, though we can always dream. I’ve wanted there to be some army that has to do with the sea, like Fishmen or something, or an army of Dragons.

I've heard rumours about a new race but I didn't think they were true or that it would be next year. Don't they already have enough work to do? I think they have enough. They introduce both Khemri (parts did exist but they really made the divide) and the albion stuff already. Lizardmen aren't that old either. The only plausible rumour I heard was that GW was going to get more undead involved under Nagash as well as those vampires from Lustria and that was supposed to be sometime about a year (2004ish) from now (again, all rumour). I've also heard rumours about Kislevite armies (very possible since they had their own lore last ed.) and an army from Cathay. Can't see where they'd get a new non-human race from though. All the good parts of the world are taken. :D

I think I know where this came from. On the GW wbsite is the Alessio Vampire Counts chat. One of the questions was "Are there plans for a new race?" Alessio's answer was along the lines of "When we've done the Chaos Dwarves, then we'll think about it."

If that is the standard, than I dare not think about what they'll come up with next...

I heard somewhere on the GW boards it was going to be Kislev, but I'm not sure. It would probably fit into Archaons new Chaos invasion.

This rumour came right out of a GW management meeting, not off the GW boards. I had heard about the Kislevite rumour and assumed this to be the case but apperently not so.

I also asked how they were going to fit it in only to be stonewalled there. I'll keep plugging away.

There will definitely be a Kislev army book from what I've heard.

Next year, there will be Beastmen, Lizardmen and then Kislevites.

The following year, I suppose they will then head on with Bretonnians, Wood Elves and Chaos Dwarfs.

The year thereafter... 7th edition? ;)

Bye
Thanee

I think the new army will be Kislev, since it was stated by GW management, due to the "summer of Chaos" that is to come this year, both for 40K and for FB.

With regards to new races, and non-human, I think (don't jump on me, please :)) that some chaos Dwarfs war machines may be pouring out to make it into the summer of Chaos camapign, and someone may have taken it for a new army.

I also thought that after Khemri, there was going to be Lizardmen, Bretonnians, then Wood Elves, and lately (maybe at start of next year) the Chaos Dwarf army list.

I WANT CATHAY AND NIPPON :evil: !!!!

I think if they do any new armies it will be after all the original ones have been done. Ohterwise there will be hundreds of Wodd Elf and Brettonian players who will be outraged that they have to wait even lnger for their book.

My friend also made an Cathay list and he's so damn proud on it.
But sjeez, he had made a shabby storie about elf wars and now he came up with an army that combines the skills and weaponry of the elves and the pointcost and warmachines of men.
They r just super-human men.
He' so proud on it and he keeps bragging over it.
And he also has the repeater crossbow, but when we told him it is a -1 to hit with multiple shots, he gave some units repeaters and some longbows ( same costs )
So everytime we say that something in his armylistis weak ( evrey armylist has weak spots, maybe not Empire ) he changes it.

He finds it so cool, he wants to go to the GW with it.
Anyways, I hope they bring the Cathay army out, so he can see how extremely shitty and unbalanced his army is.

P.S. He always wants to play with his Cathay and wins ( why duh, overpowering ) and now he thinks he's the best general ever.
In the beginning we defeated him but then he 'tweaked' his entire armylist so it would be irrational.
So now he has a shitty army and thinks he's the best

Can someone of you tell me what the slowest way to let someone die r (just to prove my right) :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Hanson? those dudes with their (relatively) long hair?
No way! He admires them! He also has very long hair (never wants to camb it BTW), so I don't think that would be a very suitable punishment.

I already thought about stabbing him in the back while he's asleep ( :twisted: :twisted: ), but that won't work because he has a large meany (indeed, long-hairy) dog that sleeps with him :x

Nononono, not that "sleeping with", he justs sleeps into the same room!

Have fun,
Happyslave :D

You could rip his heart out the Aztec way so he'd be alive (for a few seconds) seeing his own heart in your hands :)

I'd rather do that with 99.9% of HE players. Now that would be good. :twisted:

Create something called 'the updated version of the druchii' and have it so they have no weakness - when he says that it's no fair point to his Cathay army and start laughing.

Edit: Just so you know - that was a joke :D.

Same here. And they're not much work to put in, since they have rules in the 3rd edition of WFB (I have them, so if you want to see them, just let me know about it).
Oh, by the way, Kislev is the new army. Gav talks about it in the last WD.
