Chaplain-Grimaldus And that my ever pessimistic friend is exactly why they are likely to do it one day haha.

I'm happy with my BA how it is at the moment to be honest. If I ever feel the burning need for a storm talon or centurions (not fucking likely) then I'm sure my gaming click would let me.

Unit entry for sanguinary guard, death company, Baal and furioso, one paragraph for red thirst rule.

Jobs a good un!
That would take a second 30/60 book for GW to do that.

humakt BA still have a very good codex except for the slightly inflated price, but as a general rule the whole codex is not too badly priced. A hardback codex should be created with 18 months I would think.

Well in the little over a year that 6th has came out we have seen 6 new codices, if they keep up this rate every army will have a new shinny codex in 2 years. Then (hopefully) they will start pumping out supplements and other cool things like Apoc.

In all likely hood Blood Angels might even get one next year. Nids are slated for the end of this year, which leaves Orks, IG, and Space Wolves as the only codices that are older then the Blood Angels.

JAMOB I'm not complaining. I can still fit fourty ish marines a raven and a handful of dreads and tanks into 1750, and we still have more speed and (basically) everything than the smurfs. They can take 140pt Tac. Squads? Great. We have scoring jumpers. They have cheaper Sternguard? Well, that's before you factor in combi-weapons. They have grav weapons? We have hand flamers and infernus pistols.

The SM codex is new and shiny, but honestly BA are doing just fine where they are. Of course, there will be a general move away from them (because 30 points per 10 guys difference is kinda huge), but that will just leave the dedicated core who will be laughing our baddasses off when our new codex comes out.

Not to mention we have our own powers.

When it comes out, yes. Earliest word in the rumour mill is late 2014, and considering 7 out of 16 (now 6 out of 15 since BT was rolled up into C:SM) codices have now updated in really the first year of 6th I can see it happening. Not that I'm holding my breath, but I hope to see it by the end of next year/early the 2015.

Currently having no issues with our -now at least- over costed items.

mmmmm yes. Descent of Angels - JPs scatter D6" when DSing and I don't even know how you use RAS without meltas sometimes Not to mention they're scoring. As long as we have all these fancy space vampire rules we'll always cost more, but I assume there will be a general reduction.

But essentially no, unless you want to play with an allied contingent from one and a primary detachment from the other, you can't legally get such cheaper models in your 'dex.

Of course, if your opponents in your local gaming store agree to it (or let you include a Stalker, Hunter or Centurions, for instance), we can hardly stop you from doing so. I doubt that many players would let you do as such, but you may as well ask. Don't just go in assuming that you'll be allowed to and not tell an opponent until after you've deployed or something, though.

Jacobite BA marines have an additional rule though, they are not the same as vanilla marines and as field says good luck with that FAQ, it's not going to happen.
