Rumors Specialists Required
Here at Talk Wargaming we're keen to bring some news and rumors scoops to the community and to that end we're going to offer rewards for people that supply us with original proven rumors. For every rumor that people send our way that in due time proves to be correct we'll give the source $10 - no questions asked and certainly anonymously (if you have any feedback on this please fire me an email). This isn't to say news isn't to be shared via other channels - once we've broken your news to the community we're happy for you to share it with anyone you see fit. Also, if you see a rumor online and want to help us out, shoot us a message as well. In both cases we can be contacted via the contact form at the bottom left of every page or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Just remember, there are a lot of rumors out there and the potential to make a few shillings is MASSIVE if you've got your ear to the ground and the stones to let us know.

Warhammer 40k Rumors
Imperial Knight Prices
For those wondering the price of the upcoming knight models there's a small hint here from an anonymous source. For those wondering 150-160 dollars is approximately 90-95 quid. To me that's a heck of a lot of money - especially if you want more than one of these things. Still, it's a lot of model for your money.
via an anonymous source
preorders for imperial knights are 330 Liras,
which is around 150-160 usd.
I guess this kind of confirms the earlier rumor the the knight kit will be
around 160 usd.
Legion of the Damned
I apologize for missing this one off the last roundup. Legion of the Damned previews from White Dwarf. Leaked to the community by GW's secret agent 40k Radio.
Genestealer Cult Supplement - Shadow Within
It seems the Genestealer Cult Supplement I guessed back here is becoming a reality if an anonymous poster from 4chan is to be believed.
via 4chan: *
I gave you Chaos Marines, Dark Angels and SM. Now I give you this. You've been wishing for it for a long time, but hope everyone's ready to be disappointed.
- Dataslate: Shadow Within
- Contains two seperate sections: Formations & missions for Codex: Astra Militarum, and similar for Codex: Tyranids. Plus the usual fluff garbage.
- Cannot be used to make a stand-alone army like Inquisition, you need either of the two codices.
- No new models released alongside this, everything uses pre-existing kits.
- If you take a formation then you cannot bring in any kind of ally.
- AM-side formations: Special HQ Broodlord with "Patriarch's Will" rule; Genestealer Brood with mandatory Broodlord & additional deployment options, Troop Hormagaunts with "Dormant Eggs" rule.
- T-side formations: Elite Psyker Battle Squad with "Hive Conduit", Elite Stormtroopers, Troop Penal Legion. No transport options, every formation has to footslog.
- More missions than in any other dataslate. some seem very similar to Planet Strike (one in particular: "defender" starts with only troops on the board, everything else must roll on reserves to enter (5+, only three units can arrive per turn), attacker must capture objectives held by defender.)
