6th Edition Is Nigh
That being said the hobbyist is left without anything to really wet their whistle, so to speak on upcoming models and codexs. Well left with nothing except lots of speculation and supposed inside information. I worked for GW before they really cracked down and they have always done controlled leaks of pictures and information about upcoming products. This stopped once it got carried away and a couple of coworkers were fired for just confirming stuff on message boards back in the day.
The only real good predictor of something new is when the products suddenly disappear from the website and your local FLGS is told they cant get any more. This has happened this very week. The buzz around is that 6h Edition is nigh because the 5th edition rulebook is no longer available on the GW site or at the GW stores. Local independent stores cannot order anymore.
This means we are seeing 6th edition in either June or July. Since they are toting their new flyers with new models and rules for said models in the June issue of White Dwarf I think we can expect 6th to drop in July. That said I am going to really concentrate on the painting and modeling aspect of our hobby. I just picked up some Eldar models to round out the army and I plan on getting them completed over the next couple months. I am not going to really buy any more Eldar though until I see the new rules and or a new Codex.
Until next time.
