    1. Why you would buy a devastator squad for bolters I have no idea. Jus use half a damn tactical squad!

      Delete
    2. why do that when you can buy a heavy weapon oriented unit that comes with 5 bolters, and just ONE of each heavy weapon?

    3. I think he was being sarcastic with the bolter comment.

    6. I love the "1 of every heavy weapon" design for Dev kits. So practical, so useful.

    7. You only need to buy 4 boxes to have a full set!

      Delete
    8. Gotta hand it to GW... they're pretty damn smart about the heavy weapons.

      We know everyone only wants one set... so we'll make them buy 4 boxes of Devastators just to make it! And then they'll have 4 of every other heavy weapon that no one uses!

  3. I dont buy it. Hefty amount of salt needed. If this does turn out to be true, it would be a downgrade from the previous boxes.

    2. Steve is just hopeing on existing rumors and adding Bull.

      SM sprues are all layed out for squads of 10 not 5.

      If youre going to make up stuff on other rumors maybe check what you say.

    3. Except Assault and Devastator squads have been laid out in boxes to support 5 guys since 2nd edition.

    4. Yeah... these boxes sound like they're basically the same as everything we've already had. So doesn't sound unreasonable to me.

    5. Immoral and possibly illegal from an intellectual property perspective. Seb hates GW but is happy to steal from them.

      Way to go Seb. Who you are when no one else is looking is who you really are.

      You should be ashamed of yourself.

    6. @natfka

      Hey man, sorry to have made it personal in that last post, I know from your past posts that you don't like it and I have been trying to hold back lately. But what Seb is recommending ruins the game.

      Stealing IP or recommending others do it is just plain wrong-minded. If GW doesn't turn a profit, it diminishes investment revenues to expand and enhance the game. Everyone knows that the company has struggled to grow their revenues, and this is possibly one of the reasons why.

      I'm sorry, but I couldn't let that one go unanswered.

      Delete
    7. Definitely isn't immoral or illegal to make copies of bitz for yourself. If you sell them, that's another story.

    8. Lighten up guys. No need to rehash this debate in the comments section of a rumor blog.

    9. Making your own sculpt for personal use is immoral? Lol, ok guys.

      Delete
    10. @The Harrower: You can give them away too. Where the Law gets involved is if you profit in any way (which could include trading).

      Delete
    11. Making copies of models for your own use is, as has already been stated, absolutely fine in every kind of legal and moral way. Exactly the same for eg. making copies of DVDs and recordings of music - if you already own the thing you're copying, so long as you don't start giving them out or profiting in some way from the copies, you're golden.

      Agree that recasters are pretty much evil, but doing it yourself is kinda a whole other element to the hobby, in my opinion.

      Delete
    12. That is simply not true, no matter how much you want it to be so. Any reproduction that hurts the commercial value of the property is illegal. The only exception ---and only in the US is for the personal use of musical and video recordings. Devastators are neither.

      Tell me to shut up if you want, I don't care. But you know I'm right. Look it up if you don't.

      Delete
    13. And if you believe the people above me, you are just as bad as they are. Make up your own rules like they do. Who really cares anyway, right?

      Delete
    14. So, hu jin tau. If I, for example, sculpted my own version of michaelangeo's statue of david to put in my own house, do you think I that would be immoral?

      What if I looked at a bullet made by wincester, and then cast my own bullet? What if I got a burger from burger king, and made myself the exact same burger? Is all that immoral?

      Delete
    15. You are taking it out of context with a strawman argument, which is a logical fallacy. Emulating a priceless work of art in order to develop your own skills is acceptable under the educational and fair use exemptions. And since the David is not a commercial product and has no copyright registered, no, it is not immoral. Nor is food. Burger king's recipe may be a trade secret, but it is not a copyright. Their name however is a trade mark, but that is a different issue, again a strawman argument.

      Games workshop invented these models and copyrighted them. Their copyright notice forbids unauthorized reproduction. Even if it didn't print it on the box, copyright law states that you cannot harm the commercial value of the product. If you need say, five of a model, and only buy one and duplicate it four times, GW could argue that you diminished the commercial value of their product by some eighty per cent, because your unauthorized reproduction resulted in four of their models NOT being sold.

      This is not like music or other digital media where you are authorized to make a back-up copy for your personal use (which also constitutes 'fair use'). No one could seriously argue that they needed four back-up models of a devastator.

      You can continue to take issue with me, but I strongly recommend that you look it up yourself. Or just take the sanguine advice of Internet trolls who clearly have your best interests in mind.

      Make a hamburger while you're at it. :)

      I'm not saying this because I'm an asshole, Or because I like being unpopular, I'm saying because it is right. I don't need to pick fights with strangers (though it can be entertaining). And you silent majority who KNOW that I'm right, thanks for speaking up.

      Integrity is everything.

    10. http://natfka.blogspot.com.au/2015/05/items-removed-space-marines.html

      two relevant comments:

      "on assault squad should expect to see the hand flamers and melta guns etc, also expect to see less heavy weapons but more options. (example: current kit has x2 lascannon, expect new to contain x1 of each, including atleast one new heavy weapon) <------ not speculation."

      as well as "realism: x1 per box of each in the codex entry. special weapons sourced elsewhere (such as veteran kit for example, or tactical kit)"

      now if that doesn't sound right then do chime in and tell Natfka the information is wrong.

      i mean i virtually created this rumor that was piggybacked and not given some credit for...but that sounds about right for this site.

You're on your own pal, I can't think of anyone in their right mind who would back you up with the way you're acting.

    21. I have a sure-fire prediction for the new SM codex. And I want a cookie, sticker, and a gold star when this comes to pass.

BOOM!!! You're welcome...

    GeeDubs always on the lookout to shoo away more of its fanbase, now even giving the bird to marine players.

    Honestly, there is nothing wrong with the current Devastator box. There are people out there saying 2 of each isnt enough, but I think buying 2 kits will give you enough parts to build 1 Dev squad completely consisting of Lascannons, and another of Plasmacannons or Heavy Bolters. Nobody needs 4 Multi-meltas, and I can understand the scarcity of Missile Launchers, given it is the most spammed take-all-comers heavy weapon (and besides you usually find another one in every tactical squad box).

    But yeah. You'd have to be a lobotomized GW customer to enjoy the bolters and lone Grav Cannon this new kit will provide in place of the former 2 of each philosophy.

    1. Yea he's being a bit of drama queen, but I agree. Being a specialized unit, you would think you would want ALL the same weapons. If not, at least 3 of each

    3. Or buy Long Fangs as they uses the exact same heavy weapon sprue as current dev.
      And that box was released less than a year ago, hard to see GW pulling that down or remaking it...

    4. more fool you when they not only remove items from that kit and add less back in but also go out and buy said kit you say now won't happen, just like the 99% things you claim won't happen....they happen....maybe change your opinion a bit and you'll be the best monger there is.

  15. I call bulls**t on the Devastator rumor on one thing, and one thing only. Space Wolves Long Fangs!
    The SW:LF box was released less than a year ago and what Steve seems to have missed when fantasizing this rumor was that the Long Fang box is basically the heavy weapon sprue from the devastators and a sprue from Space Wolves Pack.
    So for this to be true GW will have two sets of heavy weapon sprue in production and that seems like an awful waste of money. GW pulling the Long Fangs under a year from release and remake them with the “new” weapon sprues in for me not likely either as SW don't have Grav Cannons in their list, and speaking of it, Blood Angles don't have it either and they also uses the SM:Dev box.

    1. tbf, they are still making the old eldar jetbike for the shining spears and autarch windrunner kits.

      Delete
    2. @Adam. Well, valid point, but not the same. I am talking about a generic sprue of weapons used in two different sets.
      The new eldar jetbikes are part of the sprue the unit comes on. For example the new Farseers weapons are on the same sprue as the seat of the jetbike, if you look close, even the Farseer jetbike is unique and don't look the same as the Windriders jetbike. There is no generic jetbike on a separate sprue. Your example of old bikes are generic plastic jetbike that dates back to the time of metal models, so they are separate from the molding of the warrior on top. Both of you examples are plastic jetbike, resin model. So as I said, not the same thing.

      Delete
    3. No adam is exactly right. In eldar right now there are 3 jetbike sprues, all different.

      Wind riders - brand new.
      Farseer - brand new.
      Autarch/shining spear sets - old jetbike sprue, fine cast upgrade bits for torsos heads and weapons.

      So it seems GW is willing to have older sprues that have paid for themselves over the years in circulation along side new sprues as well.

      Delete
    4. Well, I really never say he is wrong, I'm just saying that it is not the same thing.
      You on the other hand is very wrong.
      As I said, Eldar DON'T have three unique jetbikes ONLY sprue. Both of the new one have the jetbike on the SAME sprue as the rider. The old once don't.

      Delete
    5. i know its not the same thing, but my point is more that gw will continue to make old sprues that have the same function as a newer sprue, in this case and old and new sprue for heavy weapons.

  20. If this turns out to be true, I feel bad for players who liked assault marines. GWs philosophy the past year has been to put in the codex what is included in each unit's box set, so that new players don't buy models and go "huh, why can I give this model X but there isn't one provided?".

    It's happened to every army - if it's not in the box it's not in the codex entry. Hell in Dark Eldar alone, true born lost splinter carbines, succubus got FAQd to hold an agonizer and glaive, only scourges can have power lances, and wyches lost haywire grenades. Why? Bc their kits didn't include them OR were the only kit to include them.

    So no special weapons in assault marine squads if this is true...save that for the vanguard I guess?

    And stop whining about dev weapons lol scourges and true born have to buy extra weapons on ebay, just like the rest of the armies in the game, so relax marine players.

    2. "It's happened to every army - if it's not in the box it's not in the codex entry."

      Blood Angels were not affected by this. Their Assault Squads are built from the basic kit but have meltaguns, hand flamers, flamers, etc. Space Wolf Skyclaws have access to meltaguns, plasma guns, and flamers, but their kit doesn't include any of them.

      Delete
    3. skyclaws have a plasma gun in their kit. but i agree, space marine kits have almost never had all their options in every kit. we only got a dreadnought multi-melta bit for the first time with the space wolf dread.

      its a good way to make players buy multiple different boxes, to get all the bits they want. its the beauty of space marine parts being so universally interchangeable with each other.

      Delete
    4. Yes, with space marines that's true - but they also haven't yet gotten their 7th edition codex. And since Space Wolves and Blood Angels tend to rely on the "main" space marine kits + upgrades for their specialized units, it makes sense for GW to wait until the main SM codex is updated to make the kit changes, otherwise they'd have implemented 2 additional kits (devs and assault) with the space wolf release, and had 2 less kits for the main SM codex release.

      Since the main SM codex is the best selling model line and codex in any of GWs games past and present, it makes sense to release the new kits now along side the new codex to generate the maximum amount of sales vs BA or SW.
