Default Space Marines this Summer?

For those of you following the release schedule rumours you may recall there was a hole in June/July and a lot of questions on what they'd be doing in those months. Well it seems we finally have an answer (From Faiet212):

Quote:
Space Marine Codex is Next after Tau


Space Marines are set to be released in June according to this new rumor set. Not only that, but the mystery box coming this fall is explored and talked about. Lets just right into it this morning, since I woke up a little a late today.


My first thought on this is that this mornings rumor bit goes against the Hastings release order, at least slightly, by pushing Space Marines up before a fall/ later summer release. Of course if Eldar are really slated for later this summer, as fast as codices have been released, then something was missing. Either Eldar had to move forward in time, or a release break has to occur.

Space Marines would fill that slot nicely. Not only in time, but because we have not seen the base Standard Space Marine codex yet for 6th edition.

I want to say that while this source is anonymous, and new to this site, he has some good source credentials. I am sorry that I will not go into this any further, as he must remain anonymous.

This would be a nice surprise release, and of course, if the release was to happen in June, the first Saturday of June is June 1st. That is really close. In fact its super close with the fact that we would start seeing White Dwarf pics and rumors in mid May. Not that far away since March is basically done, and we are sitting at the beginning of April.

Please remember that this is a rumor, salt is always required.

I have it on good Authority that Codex Space Marines will be the June release this year. Eldar will follow them. There is also a "Mystery Box" slated for September/October (ala Space hulk). GW have 2 which they have waiting in the wings, Blood Bowl and Warhammer Quest but no idea which it will be at this time.
Warhammer wise, I was told what was coming out and in which order, but to be honest I forget as I dont play the game. But I do know that Lizardmen and High Elves are this year.
Now as Faeit pointed out, there has been a hole in the release schedule which many of us have been wondering about, and some have speculated would be another big box release. This meant Eldar would have had to move forward from late summer/early autumn for the release to fill the hole or we'd have a three month period with one release, which seems rather off considering the blistering pace of these releases thus far this year.

So it looks like the age old question will be answered in June on what is happening to the Black Templars.

Sorry about that. It wasn't up yet, and I was coherent enough to gather my thoughts to post on it so I did.

BT have had a lot of back and forth, and while there have been claims that the studio wasn't going to fold them into the Marine codex (at least at the time) the concern has never really gone away. I guess we'll know for sure in a couple months.

Hopefully Codex Marines will be worth taking again.

No worries. Rumours here are a first come first served basis. lol.

I know the argument for them staying out is that they're different enough, like Blood Angels and Dark Angels to warrant their own codex.. what with their squad organisation etc... But, by that same argument, theres nothing really unique about them that you couldn't sum up with fluff... or something like 'Take y instead of x option'.

Afterall, they don't have the assault specialist squads of BA's or anything like that... so its plausible to fold them into the Vanilla dex.

If we seriously get 5 codex this year I will be ecstatic.

Even happier when I find out the fate of my beloved Blood Angels. Potentially the C:SM will shed some light on at least some things...

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

I'd personally rather see all the 4th edition codices updated first than the 5th edition ones.

As nice as that would be Marines specifically Ultra are the poster child, they are what they encourage new people to play paint etc, so from that point of view you can't advance the far without updating the 'main' book.

Regarding Templars I'm unsure since I've always been of the stance that each of the loyalist chapters from the original 20 should either be bungled into one or each have their own codex. - I prefer individual being an Iron Hands player - but can someone tell me what Black Templars offer now other than some SCs and Acolytes? If there isn't anything then they really shouldn't have their own book since their key fluff can have a few pages in the Vanilla dex and just add the SCs into it. I'm not saying I'd prefer this route since like I said above I'd prefer each to have their own but I just don't see it. Even though it would allow GW to 'cheat' new armies.

This just cropped up on Faeit212:

Quote:
A few days back we had some interesting bits from Hastings regarding Space Marines. This is what was said, and this next bit, discusses something was apparently playtested at certain events.

I suppose I could tell you there are some new units....... but that would be a bit too vague. Hmmm, expect rhino variants, and also a new "suit" smaller than a dread but bigger than a termie. Will that do to start the rumors off?


Please remember that these are rumors. If this mornings information bit comes to light, then we are going to be hearing much more about this new unit over the next month and half.

via Bob Hunk over on Warseer
Hmmmm, very interesting, this sounds a lot like something that I've seen play tested at certain events. Might be a coincidence but if it's the same thing then I'd expect this "suit" to essentially be a mini-Contemptor dreadnought similar to the RT-era type, designed for living Marine heroes to wear into battle and then leave afterwards. Walker, WS/BS 5, AV11, 5++ save, two power fists (with alternative weapons) and an optional jump pack.

via 75hastings69 on Warseer (response)
Very interesting

Mini dreadnaught suits? Okay... Now.. the point of Dreadnaughts are they're for space marine heros too injured to fight on normally, so they're entombed in the dreadnaughts to carry on for the emperor..... Terminator armor is for the elite of the chapter... soo... Space marine Heroes...

Something in between? Seems kinda redundant fluffwise... I mean.. essentially it's a terminaut... Or a 'Hulkbuster' armor.

I've only been hinting since january.......................

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
