Default Info from Games Day

Okay sorry I have no picture but tons of stuff happining:

GW will start releasing models at differnt time not only when the codex comes out.

40K:
New models for:
IG Commiss.
Wolf Brothers
Tau Fire Warrior
Dreadnought
Tank for IG looks like the old Str. 7 Ap 4 one (forgot the name)

SM codex will have most of the founding chapters

Starter set-snap termies are body chest and head snaps. Highly detailed kit. Warboss looks boss.

Vets. can be tailered into death watch.

=]I[= not on horizon but could see some in the IG codex (wink wink)

Human Aux. for Tau will be brought up next Tau codex.They just did not make the cut last time around.

Dark Eldar rules will be started soon, a few models have been started.


Warhammer:
All Dark Elves have Hatred
New models are nasty
New Special Character (forgot them)
New Special Character Hag has a Str. 10 attacks!!!!

New Steam tank!!!

Chaos codex next unless other hairy project gets completed first (beast or Skaven?)

For extra, GW has barded the door on a lot of stuff so it was like getting lime for a lemon this year.

So no word on me krootz? >_>

Well at least, DE seem to be actually moving.

Also I have no idea what is wrong with current fire warriors... They are very passable, numerous for the $, convertable, and have somewhat enough bits. Heck IMO one of the good sets of 40k. I mean its fine I guess, but IMO there far better things that can be thrown tau way. Like more more auxiliaries, vehicle upgrades or plastic pathfinders & shield drones...

Rest seem promissing ^_^.

On warhammer ->
Yeah, I think DE will be the best of the bunch of new books so far. Finally the universal special rules actually gives weakness along with advantage and making them more finesses as elves should be.
However the special character plague seem to rain supreme... I can't stand it! Why can't they just make good wargear and thru out special characters for SPECIAL events and not on every bloody table...

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!

A new fire warrior model? While I would enjoy seeing new Fire Warrior models, I can't help but think there are other ranges in much dire need of new plastics. Sisters of Battle anyone?

New Fire Warriors is a surprise, although I agree with Red_dog that it feels kind unnecessary. But, who knows, maybe they'll surprise us.

The Fire Warrior may just be the ejected pilot model and not a full line of new plastics.

Yes it is, also another one neeling (suposed to be a recruit's sculpt). Oh one other thing, Jervice was talking about a redux on chaos codex to allow differnt legions, but he said that the redux would be hard to fit into the current codex releases, then he shut me down on what was coming out
Kroot is not over looked, jervice said "It would be nice to see the list in white dwarf again". Then he winked at me, but I think it was more of a come on then anything else

Really? I heard Jervis say that they were looking into giving the Chaos Legions similar treatment to the specialized Marine Chapters like Black Templars... you know, CODEX: World Eaters or something.

I'd be happy with legion codices appearing in white dwarf ala Blood Angels.

I see them working very well as a White Dwarf article. Most of the rules are already there. We just need a set of specific wargear and a way to combine the Cult and marked units from the Chaos Space Marines book with their respective Daemons from the Daemon codex. And possibly a handful of new wargear options, special rules, and characters. It would work fine, and from GW's perspective it would induce people to buy both books along with making a White Dwarf subscription more valueable. Win-win, from what I can see. And it would be balanced so long as you couldn't mix between different Gods in the same army.
