I'm a couple of days late with this post. Forge World have replied to an update email regarding the status of an updated Corsair Army list. This was their reply;
"Hi, thank you for your email. At this current time, we do not have any
information as to when a new corsair list will appear on our downloads
section. The main issue is that it requires a total re-write and not
just an update. We would hope to see it make an appearance at some
point this year, we just can't be more specific than this."
As we currently know, the update is currently underway (as of February
this year), meaning there will be a fair bit of writing/play testing
happening currently. Further to this, another reply came back in this form, only a few hours after the response to my email;
"We are still hoping to publish an updated version of the Corsairs list
at some point soon but how and in what capacity it will be published is
currently up for debate."
Perhaps they are considering that there is indeed a strong enough market to warrant a hardback full release? Or maybe a paid eBook similar to the current formations available. With any luck, this update will be released sooner rather than later - perhaps once the hype over Imperial Knights has subsided (Also, why are people calling them Knight Titans? They aren't Titan class machines /rant).
I guess we shall have to wait and see, however it does sound promising, especially with the internal changes that occurred in the first half of last year - One request though (Forge World, if you're reading this), please don't let Talima Fox do the rules. Having the collective might of the Eldar fall to a wet nose Imperial Guard mon'keigh was upsetting enough.
