*Jumps on the Adeptus Mechanicus bandwagon
*Jumps on the Rogue Traders bandwagon
*Jumps on the Unified Chaos bandwagon
*Jumps on the Extra Xeno race bandwagon
*Jumps on the Space-Skaven bandwagon
*Loves bandwagons

*Pulls out laspistol, shoots the driver of the Space-Skaven bandwagon in the head with a resounding "crack", and takes the wheel..... Then does the same for the Rogue Traders bandwagon...
*gets into piratical character for rogue traders bandwagon

RIGHT!! SINCE I NOW DRIVE THESE WAGONS, I'LL DAMNED WELL TAKE 'EM WHERE I LIKE!! AND THE FIRST STOP... IS A PROPER 40K NAME FOR THESE 'ERE RATMEN!! AYE?!!
AND SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR THEM THAR' ROGUE TRADER SPACE PIRATES!!

Join the Varangian 3rd, or you aren't a proper space Viking.
If you forget my in-game name, it's Colonel Thorgrim T. Fied. (Fied is pronounced feeyed.)

The adeptus mechanicus would be an awesome one haha. So another vote for that.

Also, if they do actually split chaos into a warband/pirate codex and a chaos legions codex I will be very pleased.

As for space skaven....nah. I think they need to stay in warhammer fantasy. Besides, the lizardmen are cooler than skaven.

You can never be prepared for the unexpected

Meh Skaven sound like Tyranids to me. Gargoyles = rats with wings, Gaunts = rats with guns.

Codex interex. The interex feature in horus rising and are kind of a blend between eldar and human with some xenos empire that they overthrew thrown in their aswell and have been at war with humanity since before the horus heresy and are more than capable of bitch slapping marines and there xenos allies are absolute tanks apparently. they are called something like the kinebract

When evil seeks to overcome good
And firepower ovecomes the spoken word
Then death shall rain from the sky on wings of blood
And retribution will be swift

Ork Freebootaz! A whole codex dedicated to pirate Orks with and many different varieties of looted enemy vehicles!

What? Why should Space Marines be the only ones to have a dozen chapter codexes?

The first casualty of war is neither innocence nor truth.

The first casualty of war is always subtlety.

By that logic Grax, I'd love to see the different hive fleets, chaos legions (I know, I know.. it's comming), Eldar Craftworlds, ect.

Hive Fleet Tarasque/The Black Legion of Khemri
Battles: 13/3
Wins: 8/2
Minor Wins: 0/0
Minor Losses: 1/0
Losses: 4/1

You mean like 3rd and part of 4th edition?

There were tons of variants for basically all of the armies

Sure, the Marines had their half dozen or whatever books, but Chapter Approved added tons more options for the Marines and almost everyone else.

Tyranid Seeding Swarms, Feral Orks, Kroot Mercs, Chosen of Ahriman, Armored Companies, Swamp Warfare rules, Ork Klanz and much, much more.

We need to make a return to those times... it's the things like the new Eldar Corsairs army list that keep me at all interested in the hobby these days.

I know its been introduced before but I'd love to see another legion of the dammed book come out.

Or i was thinking of an addon to the black templar book. Add fanatics. Like religous crazy's have them wear no armor have a mace be like str 4 t3 and make em cheap as hell. If they were following off what they are modeled after the teutonic crusaders that would make them fully parallel.

A great man once said... well i can't seem to remember what he said. I should remember it though I said it.

>> I would like, and not even a codex, just a small pdf so that you could make a proper fucking Iron hands list, none o this "here ye go IH fans, have a Master of the Forge instead of a named character, that every other fucking codex chapter can take as well, how happy all IH players should be!!". I may be para-phrasing, but Im sure you get my jist.
