Default Now taking bets!

Ok, not real bets, but what's your guess as to how soon we see some REAL content on our favourite fish in White Dwarf and online? I know some have started already, but how long 'til we get something substantial in the way of previews and background?

Edit: Forgot to add my guess! Anyways, I'm going for the January edition of WD. Late December for online (like the Black Gobbo)

Anytime in february or later. If they hype the tau too early, then everyone will already be normalized about the new releases, not in a spending frenzy.

I'm right behind you!

Never look back at what you have done. If you do you might not see the tree in front of you.

Hmmm....it's an interesting question, especially for someone (me) with no idea how marketting works. It seems to me, though, that it makes little sense to advertise/raise interest in a product before Christmas if it isn't going to be available until well after. I'd think you'd talk-up the stuff people can buy for Christmas, although I guess if you talked about something not getting a new model, but getting added/upgraded in the new codex, people might buy the hype enough to buy the current models in anticipation of the new codex?

Nah, that doesn't sound like much of a plan for me. I'd guess we'll hear a lot starting mid-January.

Rumors seem to be putting the release in Feb. now. Late december will show us online previews... however, they may decide to do an all-out blitz after christmas. This way they don't take sales away from stuff actually being released then.

Magazine stuff in January.

I know for a fact that a member of Tau Online ( not I !! ) will have his entire army featured in WD in either Jan. or Feb. ( I can't remember which ).

I will leave it to him to announce it !!
