Default Codex Chaos next for 40k.

New rumours in from Stickmonkey:


Quote:
So my snitches have passed along a few bits.

Up next for 40k sounds like may timeframe for a chaos codex. Rumored to expand upon 4 major legions.

New plastics
Chaos dread.
New plastic raptors
New plastic plague bearers

New character sculpts, not sure if abaddon is included...

I think most if not all of this has been mentioned before.

On top of this, I'm hearing there will be a few blister releases for other armies between now and summer. Even with WFB likely to take the spotlight in April, I'm being told to expect 2-3 blisters for 40k.

Likely candidates include missing characters for Nids, Necrons, DE. All of which have sculpts ready.

Cheers.
also:


Quote:
Emporers children
Death guard
World eaters
Thousand sons

But that's not all that's in the book from what I hear. And the conflict in what I've heard is that they expanded upon the 4 chaos gods, or they expanded upon the 4 legions devoted to those specific gods, so I'm not certain which is true right now, if either.

I have heard from many sources traitor guard and others are in the book, but nothing close enough for me to have a lot of faith yet there.
and one more thing:

Quote:
I'm also confirming a 6e winging it's way our direction.

Past few major editions have followed the model of hb rulebook in June/July and box set in September. If I recall fantasy and 40k had no accompanying models to the hb release. But did have a ton of gaming accessories.

Quote:
I do expect 2 codex updates by year end, even with the 6ed release tossed in the year.

Very interesting and thanks for reporting it. However, I have completely stopped getting my hopes up for new things. Awhile back it seemed Tau were in line for the spring and now it seems they have been completely forgotten. It almost seems better to stop expecting anything and just sit and wait. It will come out eventually. But have some rep+ cause it does still excite me a bit, even if I wish it didn't.

Stickmonkey is usually about 90% reliable with his rumours. He may get the dates wrong, or screw up the odd unit description, but if he's reporting it, its pretty much 99.9% guarenteed we'll see it soon.

Glad to see the possibility of the individual legions getting a bit of a spotlight!
Themed armies based around one god are becoming viable (again) and it's good to see. Although I do agree that Tau really do need a 5th edition update
