The Dark Angels being part of the 6th edition starter set, against Chaos.... Still a rumor or now a fact? For one known rumor monger Dark Angels are part of the 6th edition set, with no leaway for error, it is written in stone.

Since I know it to be an indisputable already on sprues fact it really has ceased to be a rumour ...... well for me at least

Now that takes some courage to say, especially the way our community at large treats rumors sources. I literally would rather be keelhauled, tarred then feathered, and set on fire, than make a rumor statement like that. However in this case, I know he was just having fun even though he is serious that Dark Angels are indeed part of the upcoming starter set.

Just remember that a rumor is always still a rumor until we get an official announcement from Games Workshop.

This brings me to the next point...... I will be starting a new article type after new releases. A fact check. Not a hunt down and zero in on false rumor mongers, but a fun fact check, pointing out those rumors that were true after a release. Even though I do this on occasion for myself, I have never posted it. 

I will keep it fun, and focus on those rumors that came true, or even partially true. I find it amazing sometimes, how many rumors are not 100% to the letter of the release, but have bits and pieces of accuracy. We will get to these as well.

  1. Thats awesome Natfka, when I talked to you about that rumor revisit I was half asleep on my wifes tablet. I look forward to seeing the article and I think it will be fun as well to see how the sources interpreted early information.

  3. That rumour revisit thing sounds like it will make for some fun reads.

    IIRC Hastings has a very high accuracy percentage and at least a couple of other rumourmongers (like Harry) count his rumours very highly.

  4. It will be fun, after releases, to see which rumours turned out and which didn't.
    (1) Necron Necromancers?
    Name change to Cryptek, though one description had them as Walkers so the Triarch Stalker or Character.
    (2) AP3 Gauss Weapons?
    Wrong!
    (3) C'tan out of the codex?
    Wrong!
    (4) The 'leaked' codex page with Warriors having options for Tesla and Particle weapons?
    Though the 'leaked' page did show Immortals as troops.

  5. So DA and Chaos in the starter box... will SM players be able to modify the DA's so they're normal space marines without much work? Could hinder sales if its a specific chapter in there...

    1. I think it may be similar to the 3rd edition box where the miniatures on the contents are painted in the chapter colours, possibly with an upgrade sprue for good measure

  6. I cant wait for the Box set.. I use the DAs in my chaos army anyway... So it will be fun to convert them to chaos once the set comes out... cant wait.

  7. Cool idea two thumbs up!

    And I do really hope the starter will be DA vs CHAOS, that would just be so sweet...

  8. If hastings farted, that would be a firmer rumour than what you get of ghost!

    Hastings is a very good rumour monger - up with the best. I believe him. Strange move by Gw, but thats what they do, throw curve balls

    1. Well, if it's Chaos and Dark Angels I think we can reasonably assume therefore it won't be Eldar.

    2. I thought Eldar were supposed to be around November, very roughly.

  10. That headline seems a bit misleading...

    1. I thought it was very precise about the subject of today's post.

    2. 'No longer a rumour, it's a Fact. Dark Angels.'

      When I first saw that I thought: "codex"

      Think that is what Anon meant by misleading. Not that it matters, Dark Angels in the starter set might mean a Codex is nigh.

      If as good, if not better, than Blood Angels codex I will be well chuffed!

    3. It made it sound as if you were saying it's a fact, not that a rumor was saying it's a fact. Clearly, at this point, it is still a rumor and not a fact.

    4. Which is, if you read the article by Natfka, that is what he wrote! That it is still a rumor till made official by GW.

      The title of the article is no different than what tabloids (that includes Newspapers) would do to grab your attention. Could he have put states blah blah or have it in quotes make you feel better?

    5. I am a news junkie. That would probably tell you where my headlines come from.

      News junkie, someone who spends way too much time reading and listening to news. I am down to about 2 hours a day now. Years ago, I managed to get 12-15 hours of news a day. Everything from newspapers (even though our local here is one of the worst in the country), CNN, TV, Internet, and radio.

  11. Who writing it and could this guy writing it be responsible for the next BT whitedwarf or codex update?

  12. So what do we know about DA rumors other than it's included in the 6th starter set? Has a new codex been in development or talk of new minis?

    The fact we know so little really makes me suspect of all then rumors concerning the other armies that are supposed to be in development.

  13. I've heard an odd spin on this rumour.
    Its not dark angels exactly, its just vanilla SM, but instead of ultramarines being the focus, this time its dark angels.

    makes sense to me i guess.

  14. It would seem my earlier assessment may be coming true
