This week was a bit of miscellaneous rumors that touched on new flyers, release schedules, and even a small Imperial Guard rumor bit. Things are starting to settle down here after the move, and its nice to finally get moved in and to be able to stop living out of boxes.

Presence of Faeit is my weekly editorial. I generally report during the week what is going on, and today is my day to comment on what exactly it is that I am thinking of.


Dark Angels
Whether or not you like the Chaos Marine codex or not, Dark Angels is something the community at large is waiting on. Its the first Matt Ward book for 6th edition, and a lot of people have very strong opinions on his writing.

That being said, we are getting much much closer now, and while its the Holiday Season, and rumors are a little sparse, we should be seeing something within the next couple weeks that gives us a better lowdown on what we should be expecting. A cover leak would not surprise me.

Until then, all those of you with the starter sets can just relax, and pretend you have a codex you can play with the Dark Vengeance models. I know that I am waiting for the dex before fielding them.

Imperial Guard Rumors
This week we were surprised with a rumor that at first looked a little skeptical (more so than normal for rumors). After some time though we were lucky enough that we were able to get a little hint that something is being worked on for the Imperial Guard.

My hopes though are that the IG codex is a long ways off. I play Imperial Guard, and to be honest, I just want to some stability and want to write lists with the current codex and play them through before another codex comes out.

Six edition gave us so many new options and formats to play our IG that I truly doubt anyone has played enough games in to truly get through the entire codex. Imperial Guard make the perfect allies with just about any army, so in my opinion, Games Workshop should be working on other codices.

Now if its an expansion or a wave of models that are going to be released........ like Storm Troopers going plastic, a new vehicle or two, a GW plastic Colossus, a new flyer etc, then I would be very happy. But a full on new codex?..... No thanks, its not needed.

Moved in
Very happy to really start getting settled in. I am going to try and get a 40k game as soon as possible, and hopefully will be working on scheduling more soon. Its just been a little tough as we are unpacking, getting kids set up, trying to find where the hell I packed my tools (ends up being in just about every other box I packed a tool or something related).

The room itself where 40k will be taking place is a large enough room for a couple tables, and there is probably some room in the bonus room next to it to get in another table. The only real issue, is that a 4x8 table will not fit down the stairs to get to the room where 40k will happen. Some adjustments will have to be made.

Mistakes
Ooops used to be one of my favorite lines, much to the demise of some close friends. Earlier this week I posted up a rumor bit that was old, a few months in fact, that was posted up here on this site. Things like that I often will keep up on the site, simply because it was a mistake on my part, and well, there is no need to hide them. So for those of you that are just coming here or have not been around here very long, I'm not perfect, and even the editing slips. I just do my best, as this is for the most part, a one man editing and research team.

Spam
The spam is a little out of control to the point its bugging the hell out of me. So expect a change today if it has not already happened. Expect it to be a temporary solution, so hopefully, we can come back to the way things are right now (without the spam)

  2. I agree. The current IG codex is perfectly competitive if too much. I feel the dex would bring nerfs and its not needed in the near future.

    1. The army is hands down the best currently in 6th, especially with shooting clearly being the more prevalent method of engagement. I feel changes have to be made at some point, especially with undercosted fliers (no squadrons and a 20 point or so increase per at least). With that said as long as the Necrons have their head scratching flying toys then the hope would be for other books to simply add and avoid nerfbats.

  6. "Its the first Matt Ward book for 6th edition, and a lot of people have very strong opinions on his writing."

    Yep, the point and win crowd love him. 99% of others want to see the back of him as his totally unbalanced codex's are ruining the game.

  7. Ignoring the thoroughly derpy GK rules (especially the ridiculously cheap psycannon ammo) and the possibility of the lulzy all-Jokaero army (that can field the equivalent of 54 lascannons in 2000 points), what on the fluff side made me finally jump on the Ward Bandwagon (tm) was the Khornate Knights bit. I mean, if it was some random Inquisitor or any other Chapter that needs the blood of the innocents to protect their soul, I would have been fine; if the GK thought that the Sisters in question knew too much and decided to eliminate them for that, I would have been fine; but when you have ranted for half a codex how these dudes are thoroughly incorruptible, whoops they aren't, when the going gets tough the tough need to roll in the blood of innocents to protect their souls, I thoroughly lost it. Or maybe it was the bit where Malcador the Sigilite single-handedly casts the entire frakking Titan into the Warp (and somehow, the orbits of the other Saturnian moons are not the least disturbed by the disappearance of the said moon from the realspace).

    1. You left out the part where the totally incorruptible knights have even more incorruptible elites who are led by the most incorruptible knight (Crowe), oh and the magic necron knight :P
      Thing is, if written better they could have slipped the point in that the reason Grey Knights don't get corrupted is NOT because they are completely immune (as the book would have you believe, at times) But because they go to such extreme measures to remain pure. And technically the killing of the sisters isn't a Khornate act because it's slaughter of innocents, but they don't take pleasure from it so no slanesh either.
      Ok, Fluff Nazi out!

  8. I generally dislike Ward's codices. The last one I can remember that seems almost perfectly balanced to me (if a bit out-dated) is C:SM. Then with BA, GK, Necrons, he got out of hand. He just seems to go on a complete tangent when he writes a codex, and ignores everything other than what seems cool to him, and what is over-the-top.

    1. Everyone likes to hate on Ward (& Cruddace, for that matter, but for writing crappy codices, except for IG, which is still over-the-top), but I have to believe that the codex writers do not operate in a vacuum, & are not given carte Blanche to write whatever they feel like. There must be (IMHO) a review by the games development management team, at the least, if not a good amount of Sr Mgmt, too. Wonky fluff is one thing, they probably have to take a good deal of that "as is" due to the time it takes to write it all, release schedules to keep, etc., but I doubt the codex writers can just do whatever they feel like when it comes to rules...

    2. Its funny but why does Kelly receive so much praise? Guy rights balanced as fuck books but with lots of holes and people praise him.

      Delete
    3. Because they're balanced. It's that simple. Holes suck, but stupid fluff and retarded rules are the deal breaker.

      Delete
    4. Atop the fact that alot of the stuff Kelly writes is "fun", and that's what the big alure is to him. For me at least. Its what made me go with my DE as opposed to BA when I was looking for a new army.

  9. Congrats on moving to your new place. It will take a bit of time to settle in but it will all be good. =D

  10. install disqus, dude. Best comment system out there I think and cuts down on the spam big style. Having replies to people's comments it loads easier too.

  11. I use to like Andy Chambers he was cool. Ward is a douche though and does douchey things and should be sacked I hope he doesn't do the next Ork Dex. Kelly is the man don't forget Venom Spam is all because of him. Cruddence has done ok apart from Nids he really went the other way on that one.

  12. B-but the current DA codex isn't even that much of a handicap to play with ;_;

  13. very good update, glad to hear you are settling in.

  14. So, has anyone seen Cypher's product page recently?

    "Even though there is no Codex entry for Cypher, this model could be used as an unusual Dark Angels Captain - or Chaos Space Marines Lord, depending on your interpretation of his background..."

    That's a fairly recent addition, I think...

  15. What about defeating the Huns?

  16. I guess this means you'll be making a table down stairs? I know that's what I would do. Make a mirkwood table (great for hobbit and 40k and fantasy!) or do a snow theme for christmas. Sand, blue paint, grey paint, white paint. Actually looks awesome!
