Lets be fair though just, newer codex isn't always a good idea ala nids....

personally I would rather keep a codex that has some issues than have a codex which is just plain awful, the chaos one isn't that bad, its just not chaos 3.5 ed. You want a masterclass on how not to do a codex look at tyranids before chaos

i'd be a bit disappointed if the 6th box is an all PA affair as i'm looking forward to some CWE love but it is what it is and moaning on a forum isn't going to change it.

blood of kittens is full of shit though and how what hastings says can be taken as gospel truth i'll never know. the fact that all he ever does is pop up with some enigmatic response that's suggestive that what's been said is coming always irks me.

the best rumour-mongers i found to be closest to the mark are stickmonkey and scryer in the darkness, although scryer's given up posting as all they do on whineseer is flame the crap out of him.

ultimately i'll believe the "rumour" when i see the preorder page/upcoming releases in WD or on GW online. until then i'd keep shovelling the salt onto that ever-growing mound

Seriously... we need to invite all of the rumor guys over here officially, then auto-ban all people who've come from whineseer. Its pathetic how they'll trash someone to death for getting one thing wrong, when they'll have had exclusive after exclusive right for months...

I miss Scryer. He was up there with Stickmonkey and Harry for me.

DA And Chaos arnt that bad. I mean if you only want to play terminators (DA) or lash princes and oblitorators then look no further. (im being sarcastic) both dexes are hard up for an update. I personally would be happy with ether. loyalist or fallen angels. Robed marines are awesome.

A moment of laxity spawns a lifetime of heresy. Never forget, never forgive.
It is my sacred duty to save your soul from the Dark Gods of Chaos... and I will save your soul, even if you die in the process.

I really don't see the 6th box containing DA. Marines probably, but having something as specific as DA in the box limits its audience.

I'm not saying Tau don't need some love but holy shit Chaos and DA are bad.
Out of all those options Tau need it the most. Half their wargear is useless as the rules just do not exist anymore. They also did not get a 2012 FAQ update and only have had 2 models released in CrapCast. Tried to get some broadsides from GW told it was going to take 2-3 weeks The local GW store said they don't stock metal models anymore. Found them at a LGS opened opened them up at the counter and low and behold no metal bits in box GW sales rep said they would be in the US around Feb 12. I have no idea what that means model wise but with all the strange things going around It wouldn't surprise me if they are in the new starter box.

Well, that statement was released about three months ago, no? It's been said many a time that GW works three months in advance, so everything up until now was still subject to leaks. We could well be looking at nothing but guesswork and vague speculation from now on.

We are all blindfolded victims prisonner of a house made from our undying love and obsession for W40k, and while we are chasing rumours in the darkness, hitting ourselves on each other heads, GW watch from the upstair, smiling and laughing sadistically each time we think we just found the object of our desire, and then that we realise it's just... a pile of shit someone they there a while ago.

The only solution :

Burn down the House

Metaphorical overload there.

Well, we can throw the rumours from Ghost21 about a special character in the starter set right down the toilet.
