Sorry, let me be more precise in my hoping and wishing. I hope they don't make it so we need two books to play our armies. I used to hate bouncing between C:SM, C:BA and the BRB to figure out my game. It seemed laborious and unnecessary. To be quite honest, it's kind of annoying that in the 5th ed. codex there's still references to the BRB for wargear even though it would have taken almost as many words to just type the rule into the book. For the cost of these things as is I feel like they could give me at most one extra page of descriptions to stop 'book bouncing' for information. I'm not sure my memory has the capacity to be infallible on all the rules of this game without referencing, and at ~100 bucks for the BRB and ~60 for the various codex it doesn't seem like much to ask.

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

no need to worry, they aren't doing anything of the sort

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?

Isn't that exactly what people have said will be the case?

Frankly I don't trust the rabble when it comes to rumours. They're prone to blowing things out of proportion, latching onto claims despite evidence showing those claims to be false and generally assume everything is the "worst thing ever".

Bindi on the otherhand has actual information coming from the inside and while he doesn't share a lot (or perhaps get a lot to share) but he's rarely (if ever) wrong.

Furthermore we've seen from Iyanden that the supplement books don't invalidate anything in the codex, or add in new units or move things about the FOC, things you'd need to do to represent chapters like the White Scars.

My prediction is that we're going to get an updated version of what we have now, with less emphasis on Ultramarines (likely to help deflect fan backlash about them posterboying it up all the time), and a couple new toys (I'm going to doubt a flyer since they have two, but I could see a new big thing going in there).

Also on my list of things I expect:
  • Dreadnoughts will have Powerfists not Dreadnought Close Combat Weapons
  • Thunderhammer/Stormshield Terminators will likely go up in points vs the Lighting Claw variant
  • Relics in the main book will be somewhat generic but the chapter specific ones will have more specialized ones
  • Black Templars won't be in there (sorry, but it's only been claimed in speculation, but not by anyone who actually knows anything)
  • Librarians will get points adjusted, but will have to roll for powers
  • The power to force players to re-roll successful invulnerable saves will become a malediction.
  • Calgar will automatically be your Warlord if you take him.
  • People will bitch about how over/underpowered it is/isn't.
That about sums up what I expect for the new released, based from the releases so far. Not rumour, just speculation.

I hope to fuck they update all chapters into the same codex.

Space Wolf Thunderwolf Cavalry? No, there are Space Marine Generic Monster Cavalry. Salamanders riding Firedrakes, etc?

Deathwing Knights? No, there are Generic Veteran Terminators.

There is no reason whatsoever that there should be a seperate Codex for each different space marine army than "fluff", and that can be explained away in the fluff part.

awww, an optimist, I didn't think you guys still existed,
I would comment but I think you already know the reality

I'm torn. As much as I'd be sad, at least my BA would have updated rules.

That would be one hell of a tome.

Sold. That makes a pretty good level of sense.
