Well this is more than a rumour roundup, its more a confirmation of what we will see in the new book. I've left the extortion rates in another post (read - prices)

It is replaced with Always Strike first!
Martial Prowess and Valour of Ages remain

Deflect shots: Models with this special rule have a 6+ ward save against non-magical shooting attacks that do not have a template

Swordmasters of Hoeth and Loremasters of Hoeth have this rule

Loremaster of Hoeth:

White Lion Chariot is stubborn, but only the charioteers get ASF

Dragon Mage stats are unchanged. 
Reckless special rule grants them +2 to cast spells from the lore of fire instead of extra dice. Can wear Dragon Armour

Known magic items:
Khaines Ring of Fury
Gem of Sunfire
Banner of the World Dragon

2 Signature Spells:

Drain magic, 7+ to cast. Cast on any unit (friend or foe) as an augment/hex within 18". All RiP spells are immediatley dispelled, and the effects of ALL other spells on target unit immediately cease! Boosted to effect all friend/enemy units within 18" on a 14+

Known army composition:

Flamespyre Phoenix
Frostheart Phoenix
Sisters of Averlorn
Eagle Claw bolt thrower

Lothern Skycutter

Ellyrian Reavers

Loremasters of Hoeth
Annointed of Asuryan

Sea Helm

Flamespyre Phoenix comes back to life on a role of 6+. It requires a marker to be left in place so this either happens at the end of the turn/next magic phase or every turn. It deploys within 6" of the marker. Gains special abilities based on WoM rolls (owners turn determines). One result is 4+ ward save. Has flaming attacks and a special rule 'Wake of Fire', which means units it fly over take damage (in the battle report in WD it did 6 wounds to leadbelchers). It has at least 4 wounds.

Frostheart Phoenix are just old Flamespyre Phoenicies

Both types can be ridden by an anointed of Asuryan or by Caradryan

Theres a special character/unique Phoenix called Ashtari. I think its the mount for Caradryan

The Flamespyre kit can build a foot version of an anointed of Asuryan

Lothern Skycutters
3 variants: Eagle eye bolt thrower, trio of Lothern Sea Guard, or mount for new character type Sea Helm. They are pulled by a Swiftfeather Roc, which is a huge giant eagle.

Maidenguard are rares with magical flaming bows. They have the wychfire special rule (lets hope its not like DoC). They are not handmaidens!

Handmaidens are now new character option in hero

Shadow Warriors are still special and still have the skirmish rule

Mat Ward is the author of Warhammer High Elves new army book!

Latest from Forgeworld - Necrons

Amidst the flurry of post relating to the new High Elf release, some stuff has gone under the radar

Forgeworld have put up the new Tesseract Ark and Sentry Pylons for pre order

New Tesseract Ark

The Tesseract Ark is one of the most powerful Necron war machines encountered on the battlefields of the 41st Millennium, and so sophisticated is its design, it can be manufactured only by the most adept of Crypteks. Built around a contained singularity torn from the heart of a dying star, in battle the Tesseract Ark can siphon the destructive energies of this captured star-fragment and unleash them in a variety of terrible ways. Most notably, the armoured bulk of the Tesseract Ark is surrounded by a gravitic distortion effect, a potent defensive mechanism. 

The Tesseract Ark, designed by Daren Parrwood, is a complete multi-part resin and plastic kit, packed with detail. The forward armour and arcane projector array of its singularity chamber give it a unique profile, making a fantastic and menacing centrepiece for a Necron army. 

Full rules and background for these two war machines can be found in Imperial Armour Volume Twelve: The Fall of Orpheus, and both the Sentry Pylon and the Tesseract Ark are available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 3rd May.
Note: One of the painted Tesseract Arks shown is a pre-production model and the final model has small detail changes.

New Sentry Pylon

The stasis-tombs of the Necrons are vast and shadowy edifices, and many an Imperial Explorator expedition has made planetfall on a dead world only to vanish without trace; slain at the hands of the unliving guardian-constructs that watch over their slumbering masters. 

Among these defences are automated weapons platforms of strange design known as Pylons. Some of these are huge, cyclopean constructs, but Imperial tactical logisticians have codified smaller, tactical variants as Sentry Pylons. These powerful devices are arcs of glittering metal equipped with a weapons array that can strike down enemy aircraft at ranges so great as to be almost beyond comprehension. Some are outfitted with a gauss exterminator array, a larger and more potent example of the hellish energy weapons carried by the Necron soldiery, which can also be employed against ground targets with no loss of effectiveness, scouring vast areas clear of life and cutting buildings down to little more than smoking rubble.

The Necron Sentry Pylon with Gauss Exterminator, designed by Stuart Williamson, is a multi-part resin kit that stands almost 6" (150mm) tall. The Sentry Pylon’s cruciform arc profile is packed with detail, making each a fantastic painting project as well as a potent battlefield unit.

There dosn't appear to be any weapon options yet for the Sentry pylon as all the pictures from open day suggested. Guess its a wait and see situation.

Forgeworld Open Day - part 2

Now that its all done and dusted people are getting home and posting further information about the day. Some interesting stuff coming out of the wood-work including Imperial Fists being in book 3 of the Horus Heresy! Happy happy joy joy.

Here is a compilation:

Horus Heresy

Simon Egans informed me that Fulgrim is 'nearly finished, I just have some work to do on the cloak as I am not happy with it.' also said he was going straight home to work on him.
Apparently Fulgrim will be finished over the next few days and sent to get the moulds made this week. Fulgrim will be the next Primarch to be released in his opinion. He believes it will be previewed at the Horus Heresy weekender in May (exciting!!!). The next Primarch he is starting is Ferrus Manus...not entirely sure why.

This sounds like there is other Primarchs ready or near ready besides Fulgrim. Horus? Mortarion? Working of Ferrus next leads me to believe that the next book is almost ready to be relaeased.

Alan Bligh said that the Isvaan massacre will be divided into 2 books. The hope is that book 2: Massacre will be available for Games Day UK. It will feature 4 legions (this is the standard being set) - Night Lords, Salamanders, Iron Hands and Word Bearers. Book 3: (i think was called extermination.) will be released around Christmas or start of new year. 4 legions - Iron Warriors, Raven Guard, Alpha Legion and Imperial Fists. I was surprised about the inclusion of Imperial Fists however Alan explained its because the book will also include The Battle of Phall. This will be predominantly set on mortalis boards.

So from this we establish that each book will have four legions featured in them, and that we can expect two more books this year! Nice to see some loyalist legions in the mix but I am most excited about Imperial Fists! Can't wait to see Rogal Dorn in the flesh (resin). Not surprising they integrated them into the series with the Battle of Phall. FW have mentioned to me previously they where struggling to find a place to integrate them in as the only major conflict for them was Battle for Terra. I wonder if they will also feature in a Mars book vs the Dark Mechanicum.

Book 2: Massacre
Alan Bligh says this will hopefully be released at Games Day UK. It is being written at the same time as Book 3. The 4 legions in this book are:
Night Lords
Word Bearers
Iron Hands

Book 3: Extermination
Alan Bligh says this will be released around Christmas or early next year. The 4 legions are:
Alpha Legion
Raven Guard
Iron Warriors
Imperial Fists.

Warlord Titan
William Hayes stated that 'a Warlord Titan would only be slightly bigger than a Reaver, however it would be much more bulky!' After questioning Forge World on facebook last week, Drake was told will was not working on Titans at the current time. 

Alan Bligh stated that everything will get rules and a model eventually. 

Fantasy Stuff

Absolutely brilliant sneak peeks for many of the upcoming Fantasy models!

The Merwyrm that we’ve all seen in this months White Dwarf is now finished, cast up, and apparently ready for release in the next 6 weeks. The model looks fantastic, and seems to be swimming or crawling over a shipwreck! Expect to see lots of these in Golden Demon submerged in clear resin!

The Dread Maw is one of the last few monsters to be done from Monstrous Arcanum. It’s burrowing up out of the ground, and the mouth has hundreds of tiny teeth inside.

The Troll Mother is very WIP, but I got to speak to the sculptor Trish Carden, who told me we can expect to see a net full of the Mother’s victims on her back, ready to feed to her children. The model is huge, with enourmous grotesque sagging tits and lanky hair. Should be a great model when finished.

The other model ready for release with the new Black Fire Pass book is the Gobba Squig. Also seen in WIP version in White Dwarf, he’s now complete and absolutely fantastic.

I was also informed that Warhammer Forge ARE hoping/planning to produce a Necrofex Collossus AND Khemrian Titan, but are currently in the stages of producing block models and figuring out whether the finances and resources are available to produce what will inevitably be enourmous, expensive minis. Hopefully it will go ahead!

Blackfire Pass Book is aparently on hold as everyone is working on the Horus Heresy stuff. 

Missing stuff from Warhammer World

All Dark Eldar
Eldar (all aspects)
Some Ultramarines

Missing Daemons but not Greater Daemons/Furies? Can only mean photgraphy for rumoured wave of Plastic GD's etc... Eldar expected, and Tyranids/Orks are in the rumour mill, but Dark Eldar? WD battlereport maybe? Thats alot of minatures missing at any rate...
