Well in the process of trying to kill IW they kill all the other undevided legions and daemon redux screws over word bearers as myself :?
Doesnt have to be so radical in theory and it doesnt make a damn worth of sense fluff wise either
Of course again this IS GW
I think It's plain obvious IW's needed a nerf, although It will be Interesting to see how the rest of the codex turns out. Looking at the recent codex updates they do seem to be concentrating on balancing out all of the races to a level(ish) playing field trying to knock out the copy/paste lists and making players really work hard to make a competetive army encouraging the combined arms approach rather than the typical one trick pony lists.
Apparently the BA's are also having a chapter aproved type update via WD Canada Issues 13+14, should be Interesting to see what that throws up.....
I do like the idea of like limiting the legions yeah, but killing the undevided legions by making them all under a banner doesnt seem to make sense to me... just me though, the daemons, ive no idea what they mean by greater and lesser only, the fast attact section of daemons and the troops are lesser, and greater are the Hq's, they getting rid of possesed and oblits and raptors the daemon kin?, hell if thats it then might as well say they didnt have a heresey at all then
While I am a massive fan of having lots of options, I do think the Tau, Tyranid and Eldar codicies are better balanced than some of their previous incarnations. While this hurts from a fluff perspective, it may make game balance more than a pipedream. I was a bit miffed when I saw that Craftworlds had gone by the wayside, but then considering what people were doing with them, it was better for the game as a whole. Having all the options in the world mean nothing if one option is so powerful that everyone gravitates towards it and ignores the rest. I've actually seen more variations on eldar lists since the new codex came out than I did when you had a lot more choices. Now it's a question of "What do I want in my eldar army" instead of "Do I want to play Alaitoc or Ulthwe?"
unfortuantly its the way of the codex now... either very specific (da) or very general (eldar). But hey chaos with no abusable special rules ..al la IW , can only be a good thing. And this is from an AL player.
I hope they don't destroy the great variaty that you can get with chaos
marines right now (don't want my dreams of one day having a 2000 pts
army from each major legion getting crushed)
There have however been a few other model related rumors;
Plastic Terminators (I believe some gw guy has confirmed these were being made)
Plastic Dreadnaught (finally)
Plastic army commander (makes a lott of sense)
More Daemon Engine (maybe plastic, probably related to the armageddon codex)
Unlike you, I'm going to want a more official source than Jigplum's reading of an internal work-in-progress codex before I panic.
A mock-up is a plan, which could be anything from it being a late-stage draft, to the main outline of the final product, with arbitrary values for the fields they haven't finalised. Given that the Chaos codex is not due for months, the latter is far more likely than the former.
