Yesterday we had some rumors that required quite a bit of salt and included plasma rounds for Assault Cannons and some other things. This morning we are stepping back a little bit, with some rumors that sound much more logical and very doable. Lets take a look.


Please remember that these are rumors

I just read yesterdays rumor post about Deathwing, this is nothing like what I have been told by the Games Workshop source I know. This is what I was told.

*HQ models will be recast into finecast. Same models
*New Belial model robes, powersword, stormbolter, or plasma bolter combi
*New Chaplain
*Deathwing Box Set: Comes with 3 options; Normal DW Terminator Squad, Command/HQ Squad with Banner and Apothecary, and an Elite Squad with Plasma Cannon options
*Ravenwing Box Set: Bikes remodeled and look like the Ravenwing bikes from Dark Vengeance, but same build as normal bikes, also with added weapons for the new Ravenwing Elite unit.

  1. I'd love to get a look at that new Belial model.

    1. Agreed. Kinda sad he doesn't get any other options, though.

    2. kinda said... is an understatment
      if he gets ironhalo this time maybe he is worth it, if not that just a huge nerf... spezialy considering how important challanges are now.

    3. chaos hears your cries and states

      :its for game balance, a SS would be OP"

    4. Weren't there rumors of him getting a MC relicblade? While Azarael's one goes up to S8.
      I'm down for that. A puny MC powerweapon that's supposed to be made of legends for the master of deathwing is pathetic. Do not fail me ward, give me the S7 AP2 Twin-Linked Plasma Blade CCW for belial.

  2. More logical,yes...but still rumours.

    1. Mine has LC so he might get demoted to a company champion if there's an option for that.

    2. Always thunderhammer, all the time.
      In all seriousnes though, his sword better be AP2 (it is, after all, a sisterblade to the Sword of Secrets), or have some amazing special rules, otherwise I see him getting punked over by every scrub with an artificer armor.

  5. I'm hoping for an Apothecary option for Chaplains like the Blood Angels have. I've had a hankering to do a Word Bearer army...

    1. Sanginary Priest is the BA Apothecary but its different than a chaplain. Ill have to wait till I get off work But I've been playing BA for a while and given i havent messed with chaplians yet I don't recall an apothecary option for them.

      Delete
    2. Chaplains don't have an apothecary option. Unless you mean being able to take three chaplains in an elite slot.

      Delete
    3. I'm going out on a limb here and saying that I think he means that he hopes Chaplains work in the same way as the Blood Angel Apothecary, or Sanuinary Priest, in the sense you can take them 1-3 as a songle elite slot.

  6. BUT STICKMONKEY SAID WE WERE GETTING JET BIKES.....oh yeah......he is a lying prick that makes stuff up.

    1. Pretty sure Stickmonkey have said no jetbikes. Tastytaste have hinted at it though.

      Delete
    2. Yup that was TastyTase rumors.

      Delete
    3. Also, every single post reminds us that these are rumors. Just because someone said something and it doesn't happen doesn't mean they're lying, it means they are just giving us a rumor.

      Delete
    4. Tastytaste has uncanny record for rumors. If he said DA are getting jetbikes (and he did), I'm believing him.
      Also since that rumor really isn't so hard to believe. A new unit that forces people to buy new models AND fits perfectly with the fluff? It's almost too good to be true. Almost.

      Delete
    5. Fits perfectly with the fluff? which fluff are speaking off, exactly? The one where it was stated that Sammael had the LAST GODDAMN JETBIKE IN THE ENTIRE FUCKING IMPERIUM? Yeah, that sounds like a perfectly fluffy solution alright.
      In all seriousnes though, I can sort of see this happening, considering the average price of the imperial jetbike (39€) and Wardian trigger happiness in regards to retcons.

      Delete
    6. +1 to that. Fit perfectly with the fluff, indeed. No Jetbikes.

      Delete
  7. hmmm i wonder how much that termie box set would be if it's true?

    1. In line with the Grey Knight Terminators/Paladins and Spave Wolves Wolf Guard Termintor I'd say, which I believe is $50 US or $75 AUS.

      Delete
    2. When he mentions 3 options, I really hope it's not implying 3 terminators. Don't screw me over now GW!
      Well, just don't screw me over as hard as you normally do please.

      Delete
    3. I'm more than 100% certain it won't just be three terminators.

      Delete
  8. Just can't seem to get excited for PC toting termies. The cannon is still just Meh for me.

    1. PC is pretty garbage imo.
      I'd rather have an assault cannon over it anyday. Only if it costs like 10-15 points cheaper than the CML and AC would I consider it. That single blast that misses 66% of the times, and 95% of the times when you really need it to hit, is lame as hell.

      Delete
  9. This is the other army I always wanted to start... besides, the sister of battle. But I tired of waiting for them.....

    1. Don't wait for sisters. I love mine and got them fairly reasonably from eBay. eBay has some decent package-buys to start with. I'm actually selling some back as I ended up with more than I'll use.

      Related to this post, I'm dying for a cypher entry in DA for my other army, Alpha Legion with Fallen allies. Renegades fighting for their and/or humanity's future rather than the "undead emperor god". Its why I haven't sold my Double-wing yet. Waiting to see what we get. No cypher= selling D-Wing.

      Yeah I like misfit army concepts. My "sisters" are heretics bringing back "true religion" suppressed by the Emperor. Puts them at odds with most armies in the 40k universe :D
      Hey, it's still better than Ward fluff :P

  10. Hmm these rumors are a bit more grounded... but i wonder if the plasma cannon on a termi things still comes from the THE PIC OF THE DAY they posted a few months back about kitbashin a termi with a plasma cannon.

    1. I thought I remembered the rumors before that came out, but maybe not.

    2. I highly, highly doubt it.

  11. I want plasma cannon termies, with plasma rounds for the AC, with plasma cannon bikes, and twin-linked plasma predators with meltas. Every DA should be wielding a plasma pistol or combi-plasma.

    Oh and vanguard veterans that can assault off the deep strike equipped with plasma guns.


    Add in a few new "dark plasma swords w/ ap1" and Ward's new meta will be complete. Mr. Ward, you are powerful as the emperor has foreseen.

    1. Is there a justification for the plasma fetish? Or is it just: Dark Angels, you will bear plasma weapons! And nothing else!
      I was just wondering, because Ward will probably remove any logical reason behind it.

      Delete
    2. It's a ward thing.
