Sounds like what I've been hearing as well on the forums. I'd like to know the setting though and the factions present.

So...All that's happening is just likely some new rules, and a new gametype for us to play with? Huh. Not so bad then! Fine with me if they're not changing it drastically...Think they'll be a new boxset like IoB with a smaller scale rulebook around that time too?

Any word on the new Bret book? I thought it was due in February, but haven't seen anything since
them are some stupid and ugly ass pieces. Griffons without wings? Sure as hell ain't touching my army.

Well one rumor had put the new Bret book before the Archaon book. So it's possible we might see it next month, though since it's the End Times we probably won't see it until after the campaign is over.

Rumor or not I'll  be up till one o'clock watching the GW website and praying to see that glorious sight appear.

I read on warseer the rumour in the OP was made by someone with only one post, so I'm not sure whether it's credible or not.

The original rumor by Henry and Co basically said that 9th was very similar to 8th with the ability to skirmish if you wanted to. It also said it was coming out around summer as well so this one here is probably just some more rumor confirmation.

The rumor said no one was getting squatted. However, that of course doesn't mean they are going to get continued support  :|

On the plus side, there was a later rumor about seeing a Dwarf war engine which was a big golem thing coming, which would go opposed to the Dwarves getting drawn into Empire.

I've heard it's gonna merge completely with 40k, meaning you can team up with Space Marines and fight Tyranids with your empire army. Karl Franz will come with a bolt gun, and Cannon are replaced with Lascannon.

I hear that not only will there be no squatted armies, they're even bringing back Zoats, Fimir, and the ever popular Pygmies.

Can Empire ally with Astra Militarum?
I hope Karl Franz will be mounted on a mechanical deathclaw with a power axe.  :closed-eyes:

I've heard because of Ulthuan sinking all the fishmen that had been trapped in their city by the vortex will be free to conquer the world    :-D

I've also heard that the "new" game will start with a campaign called Beginning of Times.  With an Of.   To really distinguish it from The End Times.

I've heard that all the new special characters will be trademarked.  So Emperor Sigmar-Franz(TM)  will lead the new KarlEmpire(TM)

Anyway, I've heard that Valten will get killed, and Grimgor will headbutt Archanon then just walk away disappointed, effectively putting an end to the End of Times.

A random orc will save the world. again.
I hope that unlike Storm, Nagash and Archaon will destroy each other (and the orc. actually all the orcs. except the black orcs which are nice)
