Episode VI: The Return of the Warhammer Rumors

Let's get one thing clear. There is a difference between a rumor and a fact, and everybody knows it. Accordingly, everybody is aware of the truth, that a fact that has just been announced constitutes news. No news, good news, but that's not the point. Anyway, without any particular reason, I'll start with the things that Games Workshop has already announced, thus the news:

-The new starter Warhammer boxed set will be called Battle for Skull Pass and it will include more than 100 miniatures (Goblins and Dwarfs) and a condensed version of the new rulebook.
-The new Giant is already available for advance order and is one of the (component-wise) richest minis ever released. There is also a nice interactive construct your own Giant-thingy over at GW.
-The goblins will get their Spider Riders (and apparently Forest Goblin too), which will more or less look like this one.

On, to the rumors then:
-According to a certain website this picture should provide us with detailed information on the Warhammer boxed set:

-Orcs and Goblins will be released right after the release of Battle for Skull Pass boxed set.
-Then the full blown 7th edition Warhammer rulebook should follow, which might include changes in the magic system and the combat resolution bonuses, but for such speculation you should take a look at what the rumor experts at Warseer have to say.
