I'm sort of new to this thing but as far as I understand there wasn't really any need to repack the Dire Avengers to half-teams.

The Wraithknight does definitely talk to the part of me that likes giant robots but it'd probably take me forever to paint that thing plus it doesn't really fit into my plans for a jetbike army, so I doubt I'll get one...

The one thing I'm really hoping for is that jetbikes remain as a troops choice since there was some rumours of them going to fast attack.
Come on, jetbikes... stay as a troops choice!

Well if you are going all Jetbikes, then dont worry. Those rumors also suggested a Jetbike HQ unlocked Jetbikes as troops.

I suppose one of the reason for the larger MC models is for people who would like to field titans but can't afford it, it is a nice middle ground if you think about it and you don't need an apocalypse game to use them either

Plus they are cool as hell

I really can't wait until Saturday, I am planning on doing my first ever pre-order even if it is just for the Codex

there is a jet bike autarch conversion kit in fine cast so dont worry about all jet bike army, but sadly that does confirm we are not getting new jet bikes in this wave.

at this point we are guessing it will just be a re-package bundle of the old sculpt.

I really hope they surprise us with new jetbikes but I'm losing faith that they will

While I was at my FLGS I put down my preorder for the codex, the Wraithknight and the Spiritseer (if I don't like the book I've got the makings for a diorama there!). I asked about the supplement book becuase it wasn't on the list and he double checked and it is NOT a day 1 release. It'll be out 2 weeks later (so the 3rd week of Saturday).

It'll also be direct only, just like Skies of Death was. I personally predict it to be soft cover.

Just a little FYI for everyone.

Need? Of course not, but I think Dire Avengers are one of the Troops you can only buy in full squad numbers. So I can see some value in being able to buy a minimum squad. Should also make it easier to make a couple Exarch variants and run a squad without.

At least that would be the case if they were to keep the 10 model box and price the 5 decently.

I'd be tempted to pick up Jetbikes if they updated them, but otherwise I might pass and just go all smashy-smashy with this Knight thingy.
