I doubt it unless the Ancient becomes a stand alone HQ choice that uses a slot.

From Faeit:

via Inkub from the Faeit 212 comment section
Directly from WD, following weapons are mentioned in context of Voidravens:
Void lances
Dark scythes
void mine
darklight weapons
10 IG killed by void mine

Additionally:
Shatterfield missiles (cone-shaped ones)
Implosion missiles (barbed ones)
Void mine have option to be mounted lowered or stowed beneath the hull.


from earlier today.
via Archibald_TK
A few things I remember from reading the WD:
- The Voidraven carry a very massive bomb underbelly (biomechanical looking) that can be put on the model in a secure position or in an "about to be dropped" one.
- The rules for the bomb are probably different than before as it manages to wipe out a 10 men IG squad.
- The alternate weapons on the Voidraven are the DE variant of the Eldar Wraithguard ones. At first I thought it would be a blast version like the one on the Eldar plane but a single Voidraven managed to wipe out an unit of Scion (10 men if I'm not mistaken) so they may be templates instead.
- Multiple kind of missiles are mentioned, I think at least the Implosion one and the Cold/Heat one.
- Only 15 IG are still alive at the end of the battle report.

Also supposedly a image of the Collectors edition of the codex.



It seems they're going back to 6 tokens, and a supplement if you buy the Archon edition.

That'd match the Space Wolves Special Editions. I think that's a pretty decent set up for Special Editions. Better than just a special cover, but actual stuff you can use in the game to boot.

Totally agree - it was weird they didn't do it with the Grey Knights though. Maybe trying out to see which would sell more and if it was worth it?

I think the GK update was just to get them 7th ed compatible as fast as possible. I assume we'll see a better update at a later date with new stuff.

actualy the GK release was a superspeed release because some numnuts had merged their "armylist" into the new SW digital codex, promting them to release the GK as quickly as possible and not giving them time for fancy

I'd missed that, but with GK having no valid Psychic Powers of their own and generally a mess I figured needing to fix that (like with the Wolves and Blood Angels (who are supposed to be after Dark Eldar) updates) is what had prompted it.
