Evening folks and welcome to another ongoing column we plan to display here on Talk Wargaming. For the forseeable future our new writer Geist will be showcasing the latest rumors and leaks from across the internet wherever he finds them.
First up we have some awesome new Tyranid leaks.

Hey all, made an account because I recently started a DE army. But that's also why I'm posting.
I was recently in a U.S. GW shop and while I was at the hobbying table I noticed a guy with a GW sweatshirt who wasn't one of the normal staffers there and we got talking. Turns out he was from GW corporate, pretty cool dude, not what I would expect from a corporate guy.
Anyway, I was talking about how I started the DE army because I figured with the way the codices were being published (6 out this year + supplements) it seemed natural that DE would come out sometime in 2014. He said that with WHFB 9th coming out, I shouldn't hold on out expecting DE in any part of 2014. He said at best it would be the end of 2014. This is obviously rumor but it was coming from a GW corporate guy, so that's good enough for me but then again who knows how high up this guy is.
With what we've seen with Tyranids (Dec rumors became January) I'd say January 2015 might be when that codex comes out. January is supposedly a historically bad month for GW since everyone splurges around the holidays.
Warhammer Fantasy RumorsBad news here for those that were hoping for 9th Edition next year.

why would I buy this version if 9th Ed is going to be out in 2014?!?

I'm sure you can appreciate we can't comment in detail on any future un-anounced releases, but we wouldn't be releasing a new book to have it become redundant soon after.
