Deciphering the Release Schedule
While not a lot has not changed, I thought I would re-hit what the current thought is on the release order for 40k and GW. This way we have something to work off of as new rumors etc come to light. After all we don't like to look at these things in a empty vacuum.
Please remember that these are rumors
When it comes to releases for 40k, we really are always referring back to Hastings release order.
Tau, Eldar, Orks, Space Marines, Tyranids, and then Imperial Guard...... However, Move the Orks.

3. Space Marines
4. Nids/Ork tossup.
6. The Nids or Orks that get pushed back.

May: High Elves
September: Blood Bowl
October: Space Marines
I had Dwarves a lot sooner than others, so its probably safe to leave a question mark. It could possibly be brettonians or wood elves. Im basing my prediction of Dwarves on where I recall them being design wise, which was right after lizardmen.
I've had multiple confirmations of space marines being the last 40k codex of 2013 and Tyranids being the first codex of 2014.
October is a Black Box release, blood bowl and Warhammer quest have come up, although...it could be something surprisingly different...
Interesting enough, that places Space Marines, which is sure to be a big release, right after the summer months, and places Eldar much earlier than was previously thought.
The Far Far Off Future
With our timelines going through possibly mid 2014, we are left with a lot of wondering whether or not anything beyond that was laid out. In the last half of the week this rumor bit hit, and while some of it seems a little far fetched or far away, its exciting to consider.
