Unless FW intend to release a brand new set of BFG-minis along with IA10 I seriously doubt it will contain anything else than some fluff/FOC or possibly a scenario. After all it's only 3 pages we are talking about.

Since they have been talking about how BFG is profitable to them, I would not be surprised if they did release a few new minis.

I would just consider it an option to aquire more models (albeit probably VERY expensive ones, knowing FW)
Wrong!
The FW strike cruiser is cheaper then the GW strike cruiser.

The FW Tau fleet is MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH cheaper then the GW Tau fleet.

And looks nicer too, despite having to file off all that GK iconography.

ive had excellent results ditching the I bridge and sticking on a spare chaos cruiser one. apart from that is the book with sword through it, which i think is generic enough that you can get away with it.

the escorts are still quite pricey though.

im expecting mostly scenarios, with possibly a fleet list and an SC variant.

Yeah... 12 pounds for GW strike cruiser vs 6 for FW strike cruiser. The escorts are 1.50 more though, but I like them a lot more.  Too bad they have not made a FW battle barge, I'd get some of those.  The strike cruiser is one of the few cases where it's less expensive.  And I suppose the money you save on those can make up for shipping and some extra stuff like thunderhawk models.
