Yesterday we were discussing a few things that Hastings had said over on Warseer, and to our surprise here on Faeit 212, Hastings paid us a little visit and joined in on the conversation. Of course he left some very nice rumors as well.


I want to say thank you to Hastings for stopping by and leaving us with some rumors. They are greatly appreciated by the community. Feel free to stop on by again.

Below are the rumor bits he left us with in the comment sections yesterday, and of course the link.

Space Marines

I suppose I could tell you there are some new units....... but that would be a bit too vague. Hmmm, expect rhino variants, and also a new "suit" smaller than a dread but bigger than a termie. Will that do to start the rumours off?

Two new varients, afaik the current boxes remain unchanged.


Black Templar

SoB.... not on my radar. Templars could well be headed back to the big book.
I'm not 100% on this.


Eldar

  1. It's probably just the nightwing and the wraithseer for eldar.

    1. Considerimg how it seems GW don't take FW models and make them codex versions then no it is probably not :)

    2. You might want to look at the IG codex again then TheAurgelmir because a number of their Artillery units were originally FW online units.

      Delete
    3. Uhhh... Valkyrie, Skyray, Piranha, Leman Russ variants (Vanquisher, Exterminator, and Executioner), Manticore, Baneblade, Shadowsword...

      Yeah, GW has no problem turning FW models into mainstream kits.

      Delete
    4. And how many of those were in the last two years? None? Ok.

    5. http://projectbiomorph.com/index.php?topic=181.0

      Lamia Strike Fighter / Moon Siren Bomber
      Spirit Warrior (also mentioned as the Phantomwaechter)
      phoenix lord niadhau (now of the shining spears)
      and the Black Warden

      All of which sound awesome. I'll be really excited if all the models rumors are true, and so far they've been backed up by every Eldar rumor.

      Delete
    6. Yeah but the Tau release pretty much tore that list to shreds...

  2. What more does IG Need?
    A Lot of stuff in current dex is Not Even Out. They dont Need dex IMO

    1. I agree. So many armies need more love than IG.

    2. If you look at FW,there are probably a gazillion variants of "tank with a special gun" left.

      Delete
    3. i think its more about toning them down then giving them a bunch of new stuff. I would all but guarantee that their flyers will be toned down, and maybe point costs adjusted here and there, but of course new units need to be added to get poeple to actually buy models.

      Delete
    4. Maybe that new stuff is just models for the current codex and such.

      Delete
    5. Not sure on the 'toning them down.

      The guard are fine. Well pointed, no bonkers rules, the squadrons are sensible (it is rational that an army should have regiments). What would be a good idea is for provision of certain kit unlocking having tanks as troops/mounted regiments/entirely airborne depending on what the HQ takes.

      Obviously that would mean not being able to take anything but tanks/aircraft/transports a la the Betrayal rules.

      But... we need Manticore, colossus, hydra models and a heavy anti infantry fly would be elcome as well, perhaps the vulture with the optional load out but not in squadrons.

      The codex is possibly the most balanced out there.

      Delete
    6. I disagree. the 6th edition codex's are more balanced than the IG by far, thats exactly why the IG are up in the top 3/4 codexes out there, certainly not because they are "balanced" well, but because they have some really powerful units/builds(vendettas come to mind....)

      Just like wolves, and necrons will be likely "nerfed" down a touch when they get redone, so will IG to be more competative with codexes like chaos/DA/daemons. It seems to be the 6th edition them thus far, not going overboard with units/codexes, and as long as they continue the trend and don't decide to up and go balls to the wall again i have no issue with it.

      Delete
    7. What they really need is a decent cavalry model like death korps of krieg horses, actual Atila looking rough riders are old and ugly... or perhaps even switching the idea and making guard bikes... wonder the look of ten bikes or bikes with sidecar? I am thinking of a look similar to german BMW and a sidecar with a heavy bolter... would be great instead of that horrible horses we got.

      Delete
    8. lol of course the IG player doesn't think anything in their dex need to be balanced. What are you smokin? Let's see how you like it when you get the IG equivalent of mutilators, warp talons, LS vengeance, & nephilim/dark talon (ie units that are useless, over priced, & a waste of space in the codex that no one will use).

      Delete
    9. IG bikers over Cav units would be great choice. Some with sidecars and heavy stubbers would look really good.

      Delete
  3. Yes! Let the Eldar rumors flow.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Everguard perhaps? That would be nice.

    Replies
    1. Everguard, IC Pathfinder, Melee Wraithguard, Bonesingers, Mimes...just don't fuck up what we currently have.
      Though, I could see Jetbikes going to a 4+ save.

    2. "Eldar Warpspiders/Everguard

      5 per box

      Spiders: whole squad looks like the old exarch, no huge weapon, helmets smaller, but same shape, wrist blades, two small spinner weapons on rod mount from the back. Spider web like straps on the chest that hold the backpack (doesn’t look as broad as the old version), running, jumping and slightly cowering poses, exarch has extra pair of weapons on the cover, don’t remember the back pictures

      Everguard: aspect warrior body with runes on the chest, same collar as warpspiders but no mandible arcs and gas masks, different more warlock-like face plate and small arc at back of the head, double bladed two-handed spears, very dynamic models, jets from the side/underside of the backpack, squad leader has larger head-arc, mantle hangs over the backpack, flies in the wind"

      Just one of the rumors from http://projectbiomorph.com/index.php?topic=181.0

      Delete
  5. Well, there is close combat wraithguard in Angel Exterminatus book, and its pretty recent. So i guess they will be.

    1. "Eldar Spirit Warrior

      wraithlord-war walker mix, trygon base, running bird legs with hooves, huge scaled torso, a dozen poles extend from the back (like wraithlord but three times as much), left forearm replaced with massive lance, right hand holds extra handle on lance shaft or a three pronged *triskele* blade. Lower back, left shoulder and part of the left arm are concealed by an impressive cloak, head is surrounded by scaled armour plating, large gem at the front, doesn’t bend upward towards the end but downward, whole model leans forward, chest can be opened, female pilot inside"

  6. I seem to recall a rumor about a hellbrute being smaller then a dread and bigger then a termie too. But then when it came out it turned out to just be a dread. I wouldnt put to much stock in this rumor the UBER suit for SM is probably just another dread varient.

  8. What I really wanna see for IG are plastic stormtrooper and generally less of all the metal miniatures :\

    1. That would be great to have less metal and less FC models and more plastic sprues.

  9. *puts hands together*
    Dear Hastings, who art incredible, haloed be thy name...

    ...please give more details on Eldar...

    ReplyDelete
  10. What i'd like to see for imperial guard are more infantry options. Not codex choices but models to represent them, ie more than just plastic Cadians!

  11. Can Shrike please make Assault Marines troops again...

  14. So am I just missing something or is the Death from the Skies book no longer anywhere to be found on the GW website?

    1. You really don't want to invest in a overprized and soon-to-be outdated compendium of white dwarf rules anyway. It was only printed in limited numbers so it could very possibly be sold out... which is very sad in itself -.-

      Delete
    2. I agree, I wouldn't buy it and have no plans to. However, it's odd that the FAQs point to it and it contains rules updates which are no loner available, the very problem it claimed to solve (unavailable WD rules).

  15. Would be very interested in assault rhinos for marines.

    1. They are called drop pods, got deep strike :)

    2. You can't assault out of a pod...

    3. Space Marines don't have cheap assault vehicles for a good reason. If you're looking for that the Blood Angels have these great jump packs...

      Delete
    4. Was a story on here a while ago about BT getting assault rhino's, though i can't see anything like that in the future.
