Default Grey Knight Rumours - Codex Coming Soon?

A little while ago a picture was posted on BoLS depicting A Grey Knight army fighting at the 1st Armageddon war. The picture can be found here. Now a guy on the Bolter and Chainsword did some research and found this out...

So, first we have Belissand on Warseer who goes and finds the authors page here. He notes of an interesting remark by Stayinwonderland that says:

"Nice work. Was gonna say, you should do artwork for GW. Seems like you already are!

My mate Phil is writing this book "



Now, a little bit later on Warseer again, we have the curious Iverald who goes and finds out who this "Stayinwonderland" is over on his website...at the bottom: EDIT: Best not to display other's personal details, i.e phone numbers - Marshal Paul
Phil Kelly

But all of this is nothing compared to a man named Harry, a man respected for his accurate but tormenting clues, goes and in response to Belissand, the first post, says:

"They had to give him something to do now he has finished Space Wolves."

I am crying as I write this up because it has restored a hope that I think that a lot of us has lost, certainly I have become much more jaded than I was before. The day has finally come.

PS- For everyone who wants to see the original happenings, here it is.
Link to the thread can be found here.

So rumor is that a new Grey Knight codex is in the works, and Phil Kelly is supposed to be writing it.

Yes... 2 Point Grey Knights are a dream come true!

Maybe these Grey Knights will be a true counter to Daemons now. Still, there are still the rumours about an Inquisition Codex, and the Work on DE 5th Edition has apparently been scrapped, so... Yeah.

Well the rumors on the Inquistion Codex were pretty much scrapped by Jervis Johnson a little while ago.

In a nutshell, we are concentrating on our existing armies for the time being, and only when we are confident that we can support them well with reguar new releases will we consider releasing a 'new' army. This means that we will be carrying on supprting the daemon hunters and witch hunters with new releases and their own updated codexes (as they are existing armies) the ordo xenos will have to wait quite a while before we can get round to it."
yours sincerely JJ

Off-topic I know but is there proof of this? I heard the first set of models were rejected but I didn't know everything had been scrapped?

Still first quarter 2010 as far as I'm aware for DE. Interesting news this Mighty - especially Harry's confirmation. If Wolves are finished, and with a potential release of Q4 2009, I wonder how much work has been done on Grey Knights then!

oh dear, this old chesnut again, they have not been scrapped for 5th ed so to speak,
what happened was the team were far from happy with some of the test models and decided to scrap all the test models.
All this means is that they are going to be a bit later then originally intended but they are coming

NOOOOOOO!
And I was so looking forward to something to do with Ordo Xenos.
My hopes have been crushed for the time being (At least the topic was mentioned).
