Well it seems like some goodies may be on route for the GK's, see below and enjoy.

So there's been some buzz elsewhere about GK, and it's been a while for me here so here's some bits and pieces.

Heavy rumors of Jan release. I cannot deny this possibility, but I might be personally inclined to say March, only because some items I expect to be released arent far enough to see how they could be done for Jan release.

Release items:

Codex: there is much less focus on Inquisition aspects, and no SoB. No Allies. A GK army.



Boxes:
Storm Raven. obvious choice. Options for BA, GK and ???

TA knights: 5 pack, Paladin upgrades, squad upgrades. Psycannon, NFW, SSTH, banner?

PA knights: 10 pack, justicar upgrades, squad upgrades, extra bits. NFW, psycannon, incinerator, banner?

walker: There have been some rumors of a GK driven walker. I have not personally seen this in any incarnation. However, there is a boxed walker of some type. I suspect this is a dreadnaught box set that will also have bits for BA.

Tank: I have not seen mention of a GK troop transport. Rhino based with psycannon options has been in some PT. I list this as possible, but unlikely, 4 box sets of this size are about par for a release, 5 would be a surprise.



Blisters:
New Stern

New Chaplain?

Justicar upgrade character

Paladin upgrade character

Inquisition character

2 other blisters unknown contents



Other:
Later release of GK themed terrain set? Concepts are out and some "preview" shots are floating around if you hunt. Nothing more I can say on this.



Rule bits, these are very subject to revision, but not for much longer, to hit a Jan/Mar window codex needs to be tied up and sent to printers soon:

NFW lose the changing abilities based on rank of user. standardized to PA NFW is PW with special abilities vs Daemons, TA NFW is FW with same.

Some interesting Psychic abilities. just about all squads have psychic options. Heavy on they disabling side. Enemy psychers beware.

Not a lot of Mech. But quick to deploy.

Psycannon profile PT changes to 24" H3 AP3 S6, special against daemons and psychics. or if unmoving 5" blast 36" range

Army wide. Daemonic Infestation makes summoned demons less instable?

No allies from/to other Codii. new fodder units in codex. not same as guard units.

New options for Dreadnaughts including libby. psycannon arm. Purge weapon...large pie plate, special abilities include forcing instability test for daemons, including DoC armies, pinning in other armies.

All for now.

enjoy

This is would have been better to post in the Compilation thread but what ever...

If all of this is true, then I will have to start saving money! God damn it!

And January or earlier would be a good release time, as the Demons got a lot of new kits = More Demon players...

now the new incarnation of DH is sounding more retarded as we go along.. no incorporation guard units etc??? Kinda sounds like they aren't just re writing the rules but the entire fluff for the Inquisition and such having deep ties with the guard.. sounds to me like Inquisitors only chill out with GK??? C'mon other publications like BL novels aren't going to make sense now, at least to me!

Well, they could just name it Codex: Grey Knights, and make them kind of pure Grey Knights, but I want to keep the Inquisitors and Assasins in the Codex!

Rumour are it is a Pure GK Codex and that the allies rules have been dumped to stop people exploiting them like they used to.

Damnit, KEEP ALLIES!

If this is true,the only good decision GW has made about the Knights is the release of plastics. Not surprising, really...

with news the temptation to start a grey knight army might be to much, i considered them awhile bk, after getting my ass whipped by them :headbutt:, but the cost of it put me off, but now i might have to get them lol

I think the plastics will be great but the Storm Raven is also floating my boat. Surely they will have to make it available to all SM chapters to make it fly off the shelves.

Damn! DAMN! DAMN DAMN DAMN!

The only reason i didn't go with GKs was because the codex was ancient and the models were metal. Looks like i need to make some extra money in the next few months :(

Sounds Lame to me too. Too bad for those SoB players, you get screwed again. My friend played a GK army, was preatty tough nut to crack with my CSMs. Now if they keep Rhinos and LRs, add in Libby Dreads and Storm Ravens, makes them really stand alone. Tough shit for Daemon players, since Daemons suk ass. Now add that to a army that has special rules against them, forget it.

Thats why we have Grey Knights, to beat the hell out of every Daemon player out there.... :victory::victory::victory:

Grey Knights for the wins, but it would be cool to actually see plastic GKs, but I would be really angry if the Plastic ones would not bee as awesome as the current metal ones...

But a plastic Grand Master kit would be a very cool kit, if GW made one, and it would be kind of like the SM Commander kit, then I would have several, maybe five, maybe more, kits, to use the parts to customise the rest of the army, especially brother captains, and possibly a Dred or two...
