Daemonkin, certainly, at least, didn't have the author's name written anywhere on it (though a fellow named Simon Green took credit for it on Facebook), and I haven't heard folks talking about who the author of the Harlequin, Skitarii, new Eldar codexes, etc, are (apart from some assumptions the new Eldar dex was from Kelly).
its the same with minis now too, the boxes no longer have the sculptor's name on it which is annoying as feck as i like to know what Jes Goodwin has been upto,but i tottaly get why they are doing it, Matt ward really got far far too much stick, certain members of staff were held in such high regard because they were part of the old guard and GW would get loads of flack if they ever dared to leave the company and every time it would be the companies fault and GW would suffer because they pushed out who ever it was, people forget that loads of writers,arstists and sculptors have been through GW over the years and many have left to pursue careers out side the industry simply because they wanted to, nobody got upset when i resigned from tescos despite being bloody amazing at my job and arguably my work effected far more people in the world.

I have heard about several disliked Ward-codex decisions there were in fact bugger all to do with him

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?

doesnt surprise me in the least , but to some people because his name was on those books, he must have sat in a room on his own and wrote everything himself, he wasnt given a brief, codex wasnt play tested or proof read, nobody above him approved it, nobody else contributed, all the ideas were his own, he didnt look at previous works or anything else,he painted the minis,took the photos and did all the art work, he even took everything to the printer, stood at the machine poured the ink in to it, cliped the pages and bound everything, packed and hand delivered every single copy to the stores.

But he didn't write Imperial Guard or Space Wolves (Codex: Leafblower and Codex: Razorwolves) which were at least as complained-about as any other book except Grey Knights (which got a ridiculous amount of flak).

Interesting how the laws of unintended consequences work.

....also, notice no mention of Black Templars as a Faction despite the rumours of them leaving the main SM Codex.
That's because as a faction, black templars would be included within the Imperium faction.

I'm pretty sure that's using the wrong 'Faction' in context - it's pretty obviously 'Faction' as in the 7th edition terminology for Codexes, but I guess you could totally read it as being able to give a Guard Blob Preferred Enemy or Skyfire or something since GW went ahead and used 'Faction' to refer to two different things.

Amusing.

You can still do silly things with it, fear not - Sternguard with Skyfire is an obvious choice (fuck you, flying Hive Tyrants!), Preferred Enemy Thunderfire Cannon (fucking Hit and Run Thunderfire Cannon for lols), Tank Hunter Stormtalons etc.

It's a really nice bit of kit, but god damn either it or the Rhino Primaris are hugely overpriced (or they're both moderately overpriced, but that's no real consolation).

EDIT: Oh, it's also an Assault Vehicle for six non-Terminator models. Hooray!
