With Sister's of Battle getting something in an upcoming White Dwarf, it is nice to hear the rumor mill is still saying that Sister's will get the full Codex treatment and not just a quick white dwarf article.

As with all rumors, please take with a grain of salt

Sisters will be getting a standard book, but it will certainly be coming well after the Necron book. Talked to my source this last weekend. The WD codex for sisters is simply a holdover till 6th ed. for now. Also its apparently a "filler" codex because the necron book and models were delayed in

Production and wouldn't get released till november (this was apparently decided 6 months ago). The WD sisters codex was rushed btw and wasn't thoroughly playtested... Two waves of Necrons are supposed to be released the weekends of Nov. 12 and Dec. 3rd. What models will be in what release is still being discussed, obviously the codex is in the first wave, but he also mentioned that warriors were getting re-cut with the scarabs removed and options added in their place. Scarab swarms are apparently going to a multi-part finecast kit that is more dynamicly posed than just scarabs hovering in place (I'd already done something similar where my scarabs are actuallt bursting from the ground)

Also on an off-topic note, some minor waves are supposed to be released for various armies with 6th ed. One of note that he mentioned was a new eldar jetbike kit with parts to make either 3 guardian jetbikes or 3 Shining Spears.

Take with whatever salt you feel is necessary.

  1. Hey Natfka,

    I love your blog. It is great for news and Dark Eldar tactics. The tactics are a bit hard to find though. If you added labels, or built quick link pages like space-wolves-grey.blogspot.com with tactics, that would rule. Just a thought. I think this could be the premier dark eldar resource out there. You have a lot of good dark eldar tactic thoughts, and great understanding of how to best use the troop types. Thanks for the great blog.

  2. Thanks for the ideas eldaraddict. I think those are great suggestions, and I will work on a way to implement them.

    Student Teacher, I don't think we have a direction on the mini's beyond what has been posted in the past. If they are indeed moving towards a full codex, I would think we would start hearing more definete things in the next month or so.

  4. Anon, not sure of your comment goes. Its pretty ignorant, (or your just frustrated) to assume that all rumors are not going to pan out, and while summer of fliers might have been a bust, it could of been any number of reasons for it not to come about.

    GW change of plans (with 6th edition flyers in route), misinterpreted information from a rumor source, or just assuming that all the flyers (storm raven, razorwing, voidraven) meant some optional rules would be forthcoming.

    Regardless, all the rumors do point to Sisters getting a full codex sometime in the near future. Whether or not it will come about only time will tell.

  5. Frustration is rampant, Natfka. I'm just wondering when GW will finally realize that they need to do a little more for their customers... Before or after their competition becomes a serious threat. I play GW games and I'm also a shareholder. Anonymous' comments reflect many of us who are frustrated at GW's attitudes to the interests of their players.
