Breaking: Next Week's Releases- Blood Angel Codex and Smaug!


This is really fun, as the latest has us seeing a new Blood Angel Codex, Tacticals, Sanguinary Priest, and wait for it.......... Smaug. Yes, no one really thought a Smaug would be built, but its happening. Also a new Blood Angel codex going up for pre-orders, its going to be a great week.


Please remember that these are rumors, but are very reliable. These are next week's pre-orders.

Lots of releases next week including some surprises. There are lots of hobbit releases, including Smaug. Smaug is extremely huge will be listed for expert modelers only. Of course he is going to cost you almost 500 dollars US, but this is a huge model standing over lots of gold and two columns with Bilbo hiding beneath.

Blood angels get their codex next week. The cover is an assault marine wielding a plasma pistol and and chainsword, overall a nice looking cover.

Blood Angels also get new datacards and dice, but more importantly blood angels get a new tactical squad with lots of options. Shoulder pads, helmets and blood angel symbols are everywhere. It looks like a full box of bits. Heavy Flamer is also in the box. 

Last but least there is a new Sanguinary Priest with with a extra machinery on the backpack, a blood chalice, and a nice looking chainsword.

  1. I thought the blood angel tactical rumor was debunked?

    1. I started to belive in that rumour when Stickmonkey said it's not gona happen.

  2. Well, I've always said if they're going to produce Smaug, they'll have to make it close to scale.

  3. A news on cities of death datacard packs?

  4. If Smaug gets rules, I imagine it'll be a case of "play Smaug, win." =P

    Cool that he's getting a release though. And I stand corrected on the BA Tacs, though surely an Assault Marine squad would make more sense?

    1. Random thought but relentless tacs with jump packs would be fun. Move 12", rapid fire an enemy unit, charge them with your tacs.

      They're probably just regular tacs but that'd be awesome!

    2. Why would they be relentless and have jump packs? That sounds like a expensive unit to me

    3. That's called death company with bolters and jump packs.

    4. I don't really know Blood Angels so it's cool that Death Company can that! Sounds like a fun unit =)

    5. In reply to the post about Smaug, he might be massive but it only takes a single arrow to kill him, well that & a bird to give you advice...

  5. Very excited about BA. Really hope all-jumper armies become viable again.

    1. lol having more than 40 jump packed marines back from the old days of 5th i do really hope so.

    2. "again"'?
      In my book they never were. Auto lose vs any CC Army just becaus you put points into movement without much gain in CC

      Unless jumppacks will be free they will still be like all 7th ED jump infantrie. BAD!
      FNP wont change and feerless will likely be cut. BAs just wont live. See no reson to belive there will be buffs!

  6. I can't wait! At least now I know what to spend the iTunes vouchers that I got for my birthday on!

  7. If the new kit is a tac squad, I'd say the codex will put more weight on non-jump infantry. Maybe even lose jumpers as troops. If that happens I hope there's a detachment that allows up to 6 FA slots and some nice rules for jumpers, so that only-jumper armies are a good option.

    1. maybe it will be a throwback to when BA weren't [game wise] so jump-go-lucky and were more in line with the Codex Astartes. [this was around 2nd to 3rd 40k IIRC] could be interesting if it is like that, though will seriously PO some BA players something fierce :/

  8. I don't play Hobbit and cannot afford Smaug, but I have a suspicion I'm going to be buying it anyways :)

    2. Some of us like to inhale the fumes.

  9. I just hope Smaug is a hard Plastic kit, and not made by the crappy sculptors behind The Hobbit, because so many of the models, are just horrible (eg, the latests Thranduil as an example).

    ReplyDelete

    1. That's because most of The Hobbit single miniatures are still Finecast.

      There's no way they'd make Smaug from Finecast. Not if he's to-scale like New Line/MGM/TE demanded of GW.

      Delete
    2. That's the Perry twins. They're some of the last hand sculpted (ie not CAD) miniatures GW produce. Personally I love them. They have soul.

  10. Great, I'm so excited I've just soiled myself are you happy now!

  11. New "rumour" for everyone:

    The next book for End Times is:

    End Times Skaven
    End Times Skaven (Limited Edition)

    Please note they were printed BEFORE the Khaine crisis, there will be a repeat of them selling out, I Imagine they will hold more stick back to go online rather than allocating shops stock.

    For those who want to salt me, I was right with Battle Magic End times, Codex Blood Angels is confirmed and Shield of Baal: Exterminatus should be on its way.

    1. Already an established rumour I think - or at least End Times - The Horned Rat is...

      Delete
    2. It was predicted that one would likely be about them/horned rat. Just confirming GW has them at HQ

      Delete
  12. Also if tacticals get heavy flamers that would totally change the way they are used and make them way more viable :)

    1. Min squad with a heavy flamer in a Drop Pod with Deathwind Launchers = one dead Termagant blob =P

      Delete
    2. The problem with SMs is they Die to fast for the points.
      In 5 they at least had rhinoa & razors.
      Now they Drive in paperboxes!

  13. Smaug - at that price range doesn't it imply resin and Forge World?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I feel many Smaug conversions coming on :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hope Smaug is plastic! If it's Finecast then it will be the Void Shield Generator all over again.

  16. Just saw the new ba tactical marines on facebook. Look fairly good. Like the heavy flamer.
