Default Codex SM Rumors

Update from BoLS:

Quote:
Some iffy tidbits, take with a bit of sodium chloride...

There will be 9 Special Characters, including Tu´Shan and Pedro Kantor. Apparently if you choose a special character your troops slots changes (like DA).

There will be a new impressionant techmarine mini. He has a weapon out of his body (the idea of a Tarantula) and his servoarm is loading the weapon. Of course he will have new rules.

Drop pods are one of the plastic kits.

The new variant of Land Raider (in plastic) is with inferno cannons/heavy flamers (not sure what kind of weapon or if are mixed).

New minis and rules of assault veterans.
ATSKNF more powerful.

No transport Land Speeder.

New minis and rules for veterans (special ammo...).

Apparently it will be not an update of the codex, it will be a different codex in his own!!!

I didn't see it but it is possible as I didn't read the whole thing! As far as I could tell though the captains still had rights of battle! the new special rule isn't stubborn! it is how ever Ld based. I get the feeling the original idea was that all marines had hit and run but that was too good!

The new rule however is Ld based!

There is a new scout special character, which may allow you to take scouts as troops but I'm not sure of his rules. the other new character is Sicarus, with new model rules and wargear.

~Many of these rumors tie into some of the older talk that has been drifting about from folks in the know, but others are completely out of the blue. hmm... That new special rule sounds intrigueing...perhaps its something to do with being able to break off from combat?

Cool, Drop Pods needed plastic kits. This allaysm my fears that Tactical Squads would be the only Troops choice for Marines.

Better get your stuff up on E-Bay then, cause it's coming out in September.

No its because they are the poster army for Warhammer 40k, and they sell. Most people play Space Marines so if a new codex comes out then most people will have to buy a new codex.

Its simple economics.

I really like these rumors, as do the guys here. I think that it will make Marines more of an interesting army to play.

Space Marines are coming out first because people play them the most. It is economics as was said above, DE are the rumored December Release so stop your bellyaching.

They are a competitive army, I've seen them do very well in tourneys before, so...

Dark Eldar only have two lists which are "competitive"
The problem with Dark Eldar is that they have lots of "cool" stuff but they aren't worth taking because the rules will (become) two editions old. I think the Dark Eldar need the update more than any other army at this point, and I'm looking forward to it.

That being said, I'm excited about a new SM codex just because all the stupid traits will be gone.

It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that SMs are getting a new codex. In every single edition that's been released, barring Rogue Trader that didn't have codices, SMs have had a codex released with the new rules release. They are the most popular army and whether people like it or not, putting out a new edition without giving them updated rules will leave the majority of 40k players with somewhat useless codices. GW is not stupid enough to let that happen.

Armies like Dark Eldar, unfortunately, aren't a top priority. They have gone so long without an new book it's easier to just push them aside for later. It sucks for DE players but when they do get a new codex it will be like Orks, that is fantastic with loads of new minis released as well. Hopefully it will be worth the wait for all the Dark Kin out there.

That said, this topic isn't going to be dragged through the "My army should get an update first!" gauntlet. Keep discussion to SM codex rumors. Any serious off topic rants are going to result in a official warning on your profile and a smite. This is the only warning, so keep it on topic.
