Here is a little snippet sent in to me which gives us a timeline for an exciting end the year, first of 2013 codex release for 40k. Accordingly Dark Angels will probably be released for pre-order before December is done, and up hitting the shelves January 5th.

That would be a great way to start off the new year.


via the Faeit 212 inbox (anonmyous as I have no permission to use the sources name)
the next WD is hobbit releases and the WD after will feature Dark Angels.
DA codex will be after Christmas though.

  1. This seems like the most probable outcome.

    1. Why? Becaus DA wasnt sooner? Who knows if its Not demons 1st like rumored by hastings?

      This rumor is as probable and legit as anybodys guess!

      Delete
    2. That depends on who the rumour's from. Natfka doesn't say the name, which is of course fine, but also doesn't indicate whether he considers the source or rumour reliable. So... it's a tough call.

  2. Oh please be true. I want to see those Brother Interrogators and Plamsa Preds as soon as possible.

  3. Please let Black Templars be around the corner soon...

    1. I was just leafing through that codex again and marveled at how good it is in 6th.

    2. I dont think we will be seeing a templars codex with at least 5 years. Or they'll be incorporated into the next generic marine codex.

      If you look in the big rule book under the miniture showcase section (pictures start on page 242) and flick through the whole section im pretty sure they are the only current codex without their own section (they are under generic marines).

      Hope this doesn't happen as I like their background, especially the champion.

      Just to comfirm, this is not a rumour, I have no sources, it's just my opinion

      Delete
    3. really that doesn't mean anything, SoB and GK's shared a page in the 5th ed rulebook and we all know how that turned out.

      Delete
    4. Not happening. Pretty positive from several sources that either they aren't even on the docket, or they will be folded into Codex: Space Marines.

      All the BT rumors were fabricated by ghost21 who later admitting to making them up. Same with the initial Tau rumors.

      Delete
    5. Not all the rumours were made by ghost21. There were several rumour mongers last year about the templars including Marshal Laeroth. Black templars are maybe the weakest marine army book right now, mainly due to righteous zeal and overcosted units. They are also the oldest current codex and I hope the templar community doesnt have to wait 5 years. I hope mid/late 2013. Phil Kelly was confirmed a while back to working on black templars, but he didnt confirm/deny being rolled into standard marine codex (though the argument leading to BT being rolled into the main book is weak)

      Delete
    6. Yet the black templars seem not to be listed as an army on the website anymore. Time for BT to count as sppeeecccee mmahhhhiiiiinnneeees.

      Delete
    7. They're under Space Marines as are Dark Angels, as were the other marine books until their undates

      Delete
    8. Templars do an awesome gunline in 6th: Two heavy weapons in a five man termie squad; heavy and special weapon in a five-man crusader squad; army-wide Rage, or 5+ deny the witch; cheap typhoons; power fist chaplains.

      Sure razorbacks are 70pts, and rhinos are 50pts. But who wants them in this edition? Templars rock.

      Delete
    9. My guess is that the will not get an update in this edition and when 7th hits they will be on the starter and get a codex soon after.

      Delete
  4. Never doubt Hastings! He said this back in September if I recall the month correctly.

      Delete
    2. Although it might be worth noting that there was a partial CD/DoC release before CSM, and the WoC also wasn't a full codex.

      I wonder how much the White Dwarf updates will throw off our understanding of "releases"

      Delete
    3. Jeah -.-
      A Lit of People Said a Lot of Things by Chance some will be correct. Hastings also later Said april and demons Before DAs. Just like he
      Changed the releas Date for CSMs Till he got the right Date.

      Delete
    4. Hastings has stayed firm on the release order for ever now. He may have not known the exact date of things but the order is the more important part. It matters not if it is a full codex/army book or not.

      I have been searching through Hastings' posts on WS and have found zero evidence of him recanting that DA's are next.

      So I say prove it.

  5. *Sigh* I was hoping Daemons.

    Replies
    1. Because updates through the white dwarf that no one else gets isn't enough amirite?

      Delete
    2. Because the updates arent enough to keep interest in the army. Trust a daemon player. The army needs a new book before I consider them anything other than allies.

      Delete
    3. My mate has recently won a local tournament with daemons. Didn't lose a game, all but one game was a whitewash.

      Daemons are dirty if you play them right and will be for at least another 3 6th ed codexes are released. Problem is nobody plays them right

      Delete
    4. Sounds like he got to play a bunch of folks who incorrectly jumped on the transports are dead bandwagon, leaving them vulnerable to being outmaneuvered and alpha striked.

      Congrats to your mate

    5. i know a few armies used transports, i dont know to what extent. before the first game most people thought he was playing daemon for poops and laughs...how wrong they where

      Delete
  6. About what I was expecting. Makes me wonder if this means daemons will be pushed back to June/July like in the original rumors.

  8. `i have to tell you guys I don't really care as long as there are jet bikes and more jet bikes and i hope ward changes the stagnant fluff behind the jet bikes

    1. If Ward has his way, Sammael will unlock jetbikes as troops!

      Delete
    2. No Jetbikes for you. You want Ward to change the fluff so DA can have Jetbikes...if you want them, try your hand at Eldar. And die trying!

      Delete
    3. am i the only dark angels player that doesnt want jetbikes?

      Delete
    4. At first I wanted Jet Bikes, however the more I think of it the more I like the idea of just an elite bike unit, essentially those black knights, or whatever they're called. Leave the jet bikes to the pointy ears. That's more "their" thing.

      Delete
  9. No jet bikes please barring sammaels.

    And yes please for Jan, right after Christmas would be fine.

  10. I've already got three of the Dark Vengeance LE boxed sets, I really need the Codex sooooon!

    1. DA can have an all-bike army, all-termy army, plasma spam, homing beacons, a unit that can deepstrike&assualt the same turn and lots of other cool wargear. With those items why do you want them to have Jetbikes too?

      Delete
    2. They're still missing the kitchen sink, the whole 11 yards, and The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch (available to all Infantry and Bike units at 5 pts per model, R96" S10 AP1 Assault 1, 10" Blast that uses BS and can fire Snap Shots and Overwatch, Twin-Linked, Skyfire, Interceptor, Armourbane, Poisonous, Blind, Lance, Pinning, Shred, Sniper, Soul Blaze, Ignores Cover, Instant Death, treats invulnerable saves as regular armour saves).

      Delete
    3. Jetbikes with what rules? Normal jetbikes with bolters would be more than lame!!!

      Delete
    4. Im sorry Anon but the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch is property of the Black Templars

      Delete
    5. dude that grenade is too underpowered for them. a 2 point upgrade upgrade, maybe. No way will i spend 50 points per unit to give them a mere R96" S10 AP1 Assault 1, 10" Blast that uses BS and can fire Snap Shots and Overwatch, Twin-Linked, Skyfire, Interceptor, Armourbane, Poisonous, Blind, Lance, Pinning, Shred, Sniper, Soul Blaze, Ignores Cover, Instant Death, treats invulnerable saves as regular armour save. pfft. maybe i will spend 5 points if i just win the game outright.

      Delete
    6. Add in " can benefit from allied markerlights" so you can use some allied Tau units. Not bad for 5 pts per unit. Hehehe.

      You forgot that it gives the bearer a 5+ ( three sir!) what, yes, a 3+ invul save.

    3. me too, so bad. i just recently found some rumors back from summer (missed them somehow) about new models and even whole new kits and crap. i've been slowly building a sisters army and want new stuff before i have to buy new stuff to replace my old stuff. lol

    1. When I see folks begging for marines on jetbikes, it makes my lip curl up in disgust. I hope Dark Angels get jetbikes, and they are so high in points cost they simply aren't worth playing with. Muhahahaha!

    2. Give them old Eldar Shining Spear points of 50pts a model before any upgrades.

      Delete
    3. They'd have to be more than that so they don't undercut the Horus heresy jetbikes!

      Delete
    4. Dear God, they can't leave it with the HH jetbikes. They look so incredibly phallic I'd be embarassed fielding them. More Bullock-pattern bikes please, like Sammael's. Otherwise I'm going to turn to Maxmini for some decent alternatives.

      Delete
    5. The fact they've made a point of making an unusual type of jetbike implies that they'll make more, bullock being much later as that'll be the best selling probably (unless GW are making it in plastic for DA)

      Delete
    6. This is true, similar to how they did Tartaros terminators first rather than Cataphractii, as everyone expected.

  17. jet bikes jet bikes jet bikes and more jet bikes enough said with 24 inch melta shots and jink save plus deep strike abilities

  19. Be careful what you wish for. I only returned to 40k after a few years hiatus to find CSM about to be re-released. Was happy with the codex but new mini's such as dinosaurs with guns, clockwork dragon and mutilators on a big mac diet with paws caught in the putty jar have pushed me right into the arms of pre heresy legions and Forgeworld... I now play 30k ;)

  20. now that I watch the White Dwarf dates, the December White Dwarf is released the 29th December, then the 5th January is possible, also because the release date of Ravenwing is 3rd January :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I know why they postponed the release, GREEN is a holiday color and DA normal troopers are green...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Something up on BoLS about DA tacticals possibly being able to go 20 strong. If they have the ability to go msu razorback; 20 sized horde squad or in the middle 10 man rhino. That! Is a tactical squad. Options!!!
