I'll be honest, the more rumors I see the more I actually like about the codex. It seems like it's more balanced, maybe even a touch underpowered (which I prefer to being too powerful because I always feel like a cunt if table an opponent right out of the gate. I'd rather have a game that's a little harder for me to win, than one where I had no challenge).

I know the C'Tan don't look brilliant right now, but I'm interested to seeing how they pan out. That said this book might be the thing to get me to finally do Necrons proper for the first time in a long time.

The thing that I'm sad about is losing a viable Apoc level powerhouse. My brother and other apoc capable opponents bring titans to the table and after what 7e did to the pylon, the vault and transcendant c'tan allowed me to at least be on equal footing.

Losing those powerhouse units means my apoc games are once again going to leave me at a disadvantage.

Why cant you just field the Apoc versions from Apoc books?

Looking foward to this release. Dont have much cash but definatly will pick up the new codex. This is gonna be good

MSS and Tesla nerfs were definatly Inevitable. MSS Turned combat on its head, even in apocalypse it was a tad ridiculous and Tesla probably got overused more then anything. That said WS5/BS5 Overlords, More toughness and wounds for army. cheaper units, a sorta, maybe gonna return for the Ctan. Alot to like honestly and i will say Im glad I recently started buying my wraiths.

Vault is still pretty good though. I mean it's got more shots per power and better range too. It's maybe not as good as it used to be, but it's a LOT more balanced.

And we don't know, the C'Tan might all be Gargantuan Creatures, or they might all be Monstrous, or they might be a mix. We'll have to wait and see.

There is a really good chance it'll be replaced by the Codex version, like the some of the charts and D-Weapon tables were.

As far as standard 40k games go, what I've seen so far is fine by me.

If this is the case, it may well be a case of needing several of them now instead of being able to rely on one in Apoc games.

Wasn't that the rumour for the previous codex? I'm not expecting anything like that.

All that is important is known.

I hate to say it ... but I hope that the Necrons get raped with the Nerf Bat ... I will admit to being a little bit bitter after the beat down that GW threw on my BA codex... fuckers.

I just hope that all these codex releases are a little bit more balanced.

Who wants to see the Eldar Nerf Bat raped to death ... Admit it... you do too.

The eldar NEED it though. The necrons are just unbalanced. Some things need nerfing and other things are shit that should be better.
