Already we are sitting on the 20th day of the month, and information that normally would start flowing within a couple days, is now looking like it might be delayed with a White Dwarf pushed back a little bit. I still feel that the Chaos Marine codex will be released August 4th, but I am simply projecting that date from a the rumors I feel have more accurate information.

These rumors validate that things are moving forward "flyers are close", and "Chaos codex was done", but they seem to all be concerned about the arrival date of both releases.

The dates on these rumor bits appear to be speculation after taking into account the rumors by Neil Kerr aka Skcuzzl listed here.  http://www.natfka.blogspot.com/2012/07/new-chaos-rumors-are-here.html

Just got some info from my regional distributor. He claims the next wave of flyers is close. So perhaps no CSM after all.

my source told me that the Chaos Codex was done, had been circulated around head office and was due for shipping this week. However, it is possible that they could release it September 1st with Flyers for August

  1. I hope Fliers arrive in august to bolster the armies lacking them. New CSM Dex would be well suited for Sept release as this would provide a great theme for Games Day UK.

  2. don't mind which comes first, also long as the fliers have something for Space Wolves (without having to ally with another force)and the Chaos list is better then the last one.

    1. Don't SWs hate to fly?

      If that fluff holds I doubt we will see a SW specific flier.

      Delete
    2. What fluff states they hate to fly? The Codex fluff says they hate to teleport, although there are numerous examples of them teleporting in various Black Library novels. I'm not bashing on you, but it always irritates me that some people assume whatever is written in a Codex is the sum total of the fluff attributed to a various Legion/Race/etc..There is a lot more to fluff than the codexes..
      This is actually GWs fault, don't they require the guys that write the rules to actually read the stuff that has already been published? They need somebody to oversee 'continuity'...

    3. It's in the older fluff. William King played it up too in his Ragnar books when they insert via Thunderhawk as well, none of the other Wolves could understand the pilot's love of flying...they just wanted to get out and start hacking enemies apart.

      Good books if you ever get a chance to read them, they're a tad youth oriented though now and I find the writing pretty simplistic.

    4. Old fluff or not it did effect the codex in the past... Giving past tenancies you will most likely have a better chance of a FAQ shoe in of the talon than a SW flyer.

      Delete
    5. shoeing in the stormtalon would be a reasonably good idea, it shocked me that the stormtalon was marines only, something I'd be happy to let a space wolf dark angel or black templar player argue to me was proably just an oversight

    6. It's the same reason they don't embrace jump packs like other chapters. They can't hit the small buttons with their werewolf pa...I mean they prefer to fight with both feet on the ground as Russ intended

    7. Just because Codex Marines get flyers doesn't mean Space Wolves automatically warrant getting them. They have their own Codex given their divergent non-Codex organization. They have Thunderwolves, Long Fangs, and Wolf Guard. No one else gets that so why do they need the tools Smurfs and their followers get?

      Delete
    8. Well, at least us Wolves will always have the ($125?!) Storm Eagle. :S

      Delete
    9. Wolves don't hate to fly, intact they dont hate teleporting but prefer not to.

      I get they have their own codex which isn't the same as c:sm and we get thunder wolves & long fangs, but wolf guard are just sarges/termies, whilst we miss out a lot on the other codex options (thunderfire, ironclad etc) why ealses flyers for some codexs but not all.

      Guys I play with are more then happy to allow me to use the talon after reading the back story etc, just would like something official :)

      Delete
    10. I think what it comes down to is that we don't want our Space Wolves being left behind in the flyer race while every other army will be getting something just because it's not as fluffy as some think.

      In fact no one likes to travel by Warp (except Chaos), but they all do it get where they need to go!

      I'd prefer a Storm Raven myself, it just looks like it'll be on loan from Grey Knights or Blood Angels.

  3. You know I was thinking about this last night and I would actually prefer to be wrong and the Codex arrives start of August - that way I can buy it to read on the plane as I am moving to Sweden Aug 6th.

    (yes that is a purely selfish reason)

  4. The next White Dwarf needs to leak ASAP, to tell us exactly what is coming out and when.

    ...and hopefully it'd have some pretty pictures of new Chaos models to keep me satisfied in the meantime.

    1. Just a leak of the table of contents would be good enough.

  5. The new spacewolf flyer preview ! http://www.elfwood.com/art/z/a/zann/bluewolf.jpg

  6. With any luck the CSM FLyer wont be one of the 3 in the next wave... I'm not saying CSM shouldn't get one, but it would be nice if it came with the codex, and not take up a slot for other armies that need it, who are not getting a codex, or don't have one yet...

    Eldar, Tau, and Nids.

    1. I disagree... why not bring ALL the filers out as a flier release... also, you're forgetting to mention the Daemons, who also need a flyer if the Nids are getting one!

      Delete
    2. If an army has to wait several years before a new codex hits I'm sure balance concerns do not affect GW release schedules.
      Get allies or visit the forgeworld site. Well unless you are a nid player but harpies will not help anyway.

      Delete
    3. My guess is that CSM won't get a flyer. I reckon, and this is purely speculation, that the rumoured chaos dragon is in fact for demons. It would probably be to the Hell Talon what the Soul Grinder is to the Defiler.

      If Aeronautica make Forge World flyers tournament legal, then it would be a bit strange to add to what already amounts to two flyers for CSM.

      Plus the shape people have been discussing, like the old epic-scale Doom Wing, does sound similar to the Hell Talon/Blade. That makes me think it might be a mutated, or possessed Hell Talon.

      Just my two penn'orth.

      Delete
    4. I didn't forget CD, but if CSM get a new codex then CD get their stuff too through allies, making Nids a better choice... CSM should get a Flyer but with the codex, and not taking a flyer wave slot.

      Delete
  7. I don't give a damn about Gamesday getting a Chaos theme for September. How about a Chaos codex soon, because delayed gratification is a bunch of psychological BS. :D

    ReplyDelete
  8. oh goddammit, i cant sit through another month of this codex

    ReplyDelete
  9. ... if CSM comes out at all! I kid, I kid... hope you guys get one soon.

    1. December 21 2012 should be the latest release date for Chaos. Gonna be plenty of that regardless >.>

      And then we'll all wake up shamefaced on the 22nd as we'll have abandoned the other gods for one night with Slaanesh :P

      Delete
  10. I wanna say August. No offense but that September release date was just a curve ball thrown at us. I dont believe it. We have heard from numerous sources that it is in August until one guy says its September, we lose our minds. Again im not trying to hate but I mean, either you know something or you dont.

  11. Hey Natfka, I just noticed the new Decimator rules--specifically, the marks--and brought up possible rule significance on my blog. Any commentary on this?
