Default What do you want in the next =I= codex?

Alright. We've heard the rumors of all the Inquisition armies getting placed into one codex. I'm curious to find out what you guys want to happen in the next codex. Not what you think, but what you want.

I personally want:
- Access to Drop Pods for Grey Knights.
- Reduced points for Brother-Captians and Terminators. Not by alot, but like a point. 46 points for a Termie is a little weird and so is 61 for a Brother-Captain. It makes it hard to get an even point value for a list.
- Perhaps a mid-level Grey Knight Hero. Something with 2 wounds wouldn't be bad. For people who don't want to run a Grand Master but don't like Brother-Captains either.

I don't think these changes would be drastic on the field.

1)Greyknights have no background about Droppods, The spearhead teleports into the field and then the rest of the company lands in Thunderhawks.

You don't want Drop pods, You want plastic Thunderhawks.

2)Brother Captain & Termies are ok with the points, remember that they get str6 attacks at normal initiative.

3)Malveaux, most pepole, and even me 've been crying for such a thing, I hope GW listen to us this time.

What I want?

Nothing really, SOB are quite the thang, and the =][= allready has acces to the Prometheus, wich is my favourite tank.

Other than that? Hm Armoury rebalanced, You pay the same price of a marine for an Acolyte with Carapace and Bolter.

Actaully, not true. Grey Knights usually dropped into combat by either Drop Pod or Thunderhawk. I know it's not much for proof, but Grey Knights makes no mention of teleportation, but makes frequent mentions of Drop Pods being used.

As for the points of Termies and Brother-Captains, I just don't see the point of having them so weird. I thik 45 and 60 would be easier to work with.

I a expecting the Grey Knights and Sisters of Battle having the same equipment as those found in the Newer Space Marine Codex and Chaos (Boltgun, bolt pistol, frag grenades, frag grenades,etc) along with their special weapons and rules. I do not want my Faith system to go down the drain for being overcomplicated.

I hope that they also do not kick out the retinue system.

I haven't read the novel, but in page 7 of the DH codex there's a boxed description of the Grey Knights, They mention Teleport attack squads and Purgation squads, no Droppod squads.

In the book Imperial Armour vol. II: Forces of the Inquisition they mention the following:

They have acces to the arcane and scarce technology of teleporters, All Grey Knight Strike crusiers are equipped with them and they do not often need the Thunderhawks for Direct airborne assaults or planetfall missions, altough they train for them.

And once teleporting troops have attacked, They'll need the heavy support of Land Raiders, Purgation Squads and Venerable Dreadnoughts and there's where the Thunderhawks come in.

Furthermore, in the GK's Dreadnought description they do not list Droppod as an option for it.

But let's drop it there shall we?.

[hr]

Hey Vyper, I had totally forgotten about the rule's streamlining!

OMIGOSH! Faith is gonna be so dwarfed :sadnshocked:.

Agreed, as I haven't read IA:II.

And I certainly hope they keep faith the same. It was creative and didn't overpower SOB armies in any way IMO.

Unless some noob decided to say that Divine Guidance is as chesy as Eldar Holoalcons and Monoliths. :

I really hope that they do the Faith thing right (not killing it), and I hoped the Exorcist will also still stay in the army with its D6 missile fire. I do not want it to have a fixed number of shots, but being GW I think they will piss us Inquisition Players somehow. :

Default Plastic Models!

PLASTIC SISTERS OF BATTLE!

That's what I wants. GW's female sculpts are few and far between. I mean, for heaven's sake, there's aren't even any female Imperial Guard, and the IG can take doctrines where you round up whoever is around and arm them. Even the Forge World rebel and Chaos Guard don't have females!

It's mind-boggling, it truly is. So let's at least have some plastic SoB!
