Dark Angels will be a very interesting codex release regardless if you plan on going with Dark Angels or not. First off, they should be extremely popular just because of the starter sets, and second, it will be our first Space Marines codex in 6th edition. So it should give a lot of insight into the direction of marines in the future.


This rumor bit is brought to us by Master Sheol, and comes from the italian GWtilea site. Please take with a large amount of salt on this one, as suggested in the rumor. Remember, lots of salt....

New rumors from italian GWtilea forum.
-WW will get a recut with a third missile rack with a single big missile (AA skyhammer option?)
- two new kinds of flyers one smaller and one bigger (rumored Darktalon and Nephilim from BL book?)

Take these rumors with a HUGE amount of salt.

    2. 2lb of the stuff used to be a way to commit suicide...... I think I'm getting close to that.

    3. Need some pepper with that?

    4. Be sure to season your salt with some meat...and possibly a river's worth of water

      Hopefully the Whirlwind gets the AA option, fielding one at 1k points is handy for clearing out infantry, adding AA is more icing

  2. Better be super cheap with interceptor/skyfire Heavy 2/3 and available in 1-3 per slot or a single AV11 box won't last long shooting single missiles against flyers.

    1. Interceptor I can see, but super cheap and 2-3 per slot? So they better be op or not at all? They should maybe be interceptor, and heavy 2 or something like that, but they're not trying to make them cheap and spammable to completely remove flyers from the meta either (at least I hope...)

      Aside from that, if right after we see the precedent for skyfire coming at a high price via Havoks, they better not just drop that and be like "Well these are the GOOD marines, so they should have the same thing but cheaper and better"

    2. I agree but there is a difference between a vehicle taking upgrades vs infantry taking upgrades i would expect the upgrade to be cheaper for a vehicle as opposed to an infantry unit taking the same upgrade

      Delete
    3. If you were upgrading the entire unit I would agree. It should not however cost the same to upgrade a single model(which is how the havocs work) and a vehicle.

  3. I think the Whirlwind is the appropriate platform for anti-aircraft, though I will say, it will be a big target for flyers. That actually might be a boon for ground troops though.

    1. Not arguing that it could be a great platform but will need completely new rules not just a new weapon option. Unless its a heavy 6 str6 weapon with a targeting array that can split fire between 1/2/3 targets declared before firing maybe -1bs skill for splitting fire. Or something other but than that it would be useless being fielded alone.

      Delete
    2. Agreed. Given how little I see it on the table, it's a good plan to give Marine players another reason to consider the Whirlwind. After all, every entry in a codex should be worth considering.

      Delete
    3. I'd say that if it's: Heavy 2, S8 AP4 Skyfire, Intercept, and an additional option for 10 points, it'd be worth it. The Whirlwind has cheap utility for 85 pts, but the problem it really faces is being anti-horde in an anti-horde army. Giving it an AA option like that would actually make it useful in many SM lists. Trust me, no flier wants to think about being hit with S8 shots the turn it shows up, and then being shot at again with 2 S8 shots. Especially since many fliers are only 2 HP's.

  4. I'm sorry, I can't digest this rumor as I have high bloodpressure, I'm not allowed that much salt! ;)

  5. Interesting tidbit about the whirlwind. Makes me wonder if they're planning something akin to the "Hunter" variant as seen in Epic Armageddon?

  6. I am sorry to say this but the first space marine codex has already been released, it's called Chaos space marines.
    Please release some Xenos soon or I might start playing chess instead.

    1. It looks like someone's spilled the beans on the stats on that Heavy Battlesuit for Tau.

      I'm taking truckloads of salt on this one :D

  7. Come on now, DA is the SECOND Space Marine codex of 6th. (Its just the first Imperial SM codex.) CSM may be wacky, but they're not that far off from regular SM to not be considered SM's.

    1. Power armor of any kind is power armor and there for a marine dex. Show the tau some love gw !

  8. Makes me extremely leery when these are most likely from the same forum from the same person...

  9. Its a Ward Codex, so the flyer will cost 100 points, is a transport option for both tactical marines and terminators, has AV13 all around and like 6 autocannons at BS5.

    1. Have you seen the Horus heresy mechanicum land raider? If you give it enough upgrades, it's one of the most BS over-powered tanks outside of Apocalypse. -1S for standard ranged weapons, -2S for template weapons, repairs Immobilised on a 4+, ignores Melta, gets Scout, deals S5 Ap4 hits to assaulting units. Melta weapons can not glance it. Lascannons can only glance it. To penetrate it, you need a railgun. Oh wait, marines don't have them. Admittedly, it's a LOT of points, but to have a damned-near invincible killing machine on the table makes most opponents hate you.

    2. The HH vehicles stay on a table together with primarchs though.

    3. I don't have the first book, but if what you say is true, that's the biggest block of cheese of tracks that I've ever heard of.

      I mean what the hell? It better be limited to just one per army with those rules...

      Delete
    4. In a world where you can field demigods hiding amongst power armor for extra wounds that can rape a heirophant in 1v1 or have squads of 10 lascannons, that's pretty meh.

      Delete
    5. Allow me to introduce you to Dreads with Siege Wreckers. Or Terminators with Chainfists. Or just a bunch of Graviton Guns. See? Nothing to fret about, you have more than enough to kill the 600 point monstrosity you just described, for a fraction of the cost. X)

  10. sounds reasonable, a AA upgrade for WW. A single seat Lspeeder kit. and A bigger flyer for non BA and GK.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Next flyer wave is going to be a great one probably 3-6 flyers inc! I think 1 tau, 1 eldar, 1(more)orc, 2 SM flyers and potentially a toss up with sisters and demons. Both I would love to see a flyer for. This next one is supposed to be in feb-march along side tau. Tough to say for sure but easy to speculate.

    1. I find that difficult to even speculate.

  12. These rumours with a huge amount of salt... Either the guy in the forum heard this from a specific source or he made it up. The source then heard or saw it from somewhere else.

    If we're talking about a rumour "with a certain amount of salt" it's because a guy overheard or saw a fraction of something and posts his guesses about it.

  13. Nephilim is a race of xenos not an aircraft... whats it called when its just false? taking it with a grain of rat poison?

    FW already makes a bigger storm raven its called a thunder hawlk, they make a skyfire option on the WW too.

    1. It's called shit,

    2. Storm Eagle comes first.. Then comes the Thunderhawk.

    3. "The Nephilim is a Hebrew term in the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible. The first occurrence relates to "Nephilim" who were on the earth when the "sons of God" (either fallen angels or those from the line of Seth) and the "daughters of men""

      Sounds more like the watchers than an aircraft to me...

      Delete
  14. I will be surprised if they give a weapon (other than a fortification weapon) Interceptor. I can see another flyer having Interceptor, a fighter perhaps, but have doughts that the WW will have it.
