Default Whatever Happened to Cypher?

That's just it. They mention him frequently in the Dark Angel's codex and he used to have rules and a sweet two plasma-pistol toting model. Always thought he was cool as f$%k, now having finished reading Fallen Angels I wanted to see how he would be used on the table top and bam. No dice.

In my heart of hearts I hope he comes back in a 'Fallen' mini-dex- should that ever come to fruition. This is taken from the actual model's entry on the GW site:

Even though there is no Codex entry for Cypher, this model could be used as an unusual Dark Angels Captain - or Chaos Space Marines Lord, depending on your interpretation of his background...

I am saddened. He (or at least, the idea of him) was cool.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I highly doubt that Cypher is gone. He tends to flit about here and there making the DA chase him all over the place. I think he's just being given a rest for the time being

You could say, Cypher lives on in all of us. I love the mystery behind this character haha I believe the Lion was a heretic and The Fallen are falsely hunted and accused.

I agree whole heartedly, I believe the DA are all heretics & cypher & luthor are the real DA

I dislike Lion El Johnson. From what I can see he was a little pussy who sat back going "Yeah! Go you!" in the general direction of fighting and then when the Imperium won he came along and went "I was rooting for you guys all along!"

You've clearly not read the Heresy novels then.

Cypher might show up in the new HH audio, Grey Angel, in which Iacton Qruze (good to see him back) goes to Caliban in secret to see what's going on with the DAs.

I get what you mean, in the last CSM dex the only reference to the fallen was a in all the warband images and it just said the fallen and nothing els, then 6th edition comes along and most of the DA codex is based on them hunting the Fallen and there is a hairly hefty chunk on cypher, its also spoken about in the new CSM dex and everyone was expecting his rules to come back but alas it was not to be

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow

His model still looks good too. I'd like to see him be remodeled with a lot more detail though.
