When the new nilla Marines dex comes out I want:

- It to be Codex Space Marines. Not a fucking Ultramarines wank fest
- To be able to take Termies as troops as an unlock
- Traits

IG:

- Some sort of traits system would be nice.
- MOAR Tanks!
- Rough Riders to be a viable option, maybe even as a troops choice (I want a mother fucking 40k Cavalry Army and Charge of the Light Brigade people!)
- Xeno Cavalry to be available
- Plastic Hydra, ST's, Great Coat Guard

Hmm thinking mainly to have more special character insted of the 6 or so their seems to be boost it up to 10-12 but keep the special unit characters about where they are think that 2-3 is about right for a bit of uniqueness, but more HQ maybe a limmiting factor so you can't get to many hugely powerfull ones but thats what points are about.

Ork-more squigs and more crazy random stuff do care what but some more.

When they re-do nids I want them to be really swarmy.

Give troops a without number upgrade. Make Hormagaunts and Termagaunts awful but dirt cheap. I'm thinking a termagaunt becoming bs2, make the fleshborer lasgun-esque but make them 3 pts each, Horms make 4 pts with 2 attacks but I3 and infantry rather than beasts. Sure allow them the option to take upgrades to make them better but they should start cheap.

Give me a reason to take multiwound infantry like nid warriors, with no EW these guys suck. Give them EW or halve(!) their price

Give Carnis a clear purpose rather than auto trygon


I'd like a chaos legion expansion not because I think the book needs it but because I think it would be cool

I'd like GW to stop rereleasing armies constantly and actually do minis of some of the missing units like the Harpy, Ku'aggath, Skarbrand, Void Raven etc

Seeing the ilyanden codex 'supplement' coming out for eldar opens a slew of opportunities for gw. Things such as codex chaos legions and the like. Whether or not gw expands on it though, is another thing entirely. (Prediction: Templar become a codex space marine 'supplement')

I'm thinking I'll be waiting awhile but a new "Inquisition" Codex that integrated all three Ordo's would be awesome.

With the swing towards some pretty groovy kit in the latest 6th Ed Codices I'm looking forward pretty eagerly to see what stuff the Ordo's get. Freaky anti-Daemon Psyker stuff for GK's, Flamy faithy relicy things for the Sisters and high tech, borderline tau stuff for the Deathwatch.

I want for my codices what I want for all codices:

Good balance and multiple possible builds. I'd hate for any of my books to be turned into something boring and blargh like the CSM book. Also, no fucking tables. If they dare turn any of my codices into the abomination that is Codex: Chaos Daemons, someone will pay.

I'm so glad I strictly play non-chaotic forces...

I second this & would like to see Human bombs added back into IG as nothing makes you giggle like a penal troopers head exploding & scaring the beejesus out of your opponents troops

I want to see less fucking "fluff" and "back story". There are novels for a reason. Get that shit out of my codex. Removing half the book should in theory save me at least 1/3 the price.

I would also like to see Chaos get an update. Seeing how all these new codex's are I strongly feel Chaos got bitch slapped quite a bit

In the BA dex:

Tactical squads being able to take a special/heavy weapon without taking 10 marines.

Tycho GONE and replaced with a new character. The guy is dead. Let's all just let it go...

Aside from that I'm stoked for new warlord traits, psychic powers, and points costs.

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