I'm just getting sick of the constant fucking space marine updates. We get it. There are other teams out there though.
Like... Orks? You mean? That 7th edition book I imagined then? Or Nids? Or Tau? Or Eldar? Yeah, fuck GW for not touching xenos and focussing on 5th edition books, when there are 6th edition xenos armies which haven't been updated for a full fucking year.

Scrubs.

Space marines are the bread and butter of GW. If they are going to release new codexes Imperium aligned codexes will take priority. If they keep releasing a codex a month then we should see the xenos books soon so keep your panties on.

Oh I don't know my BA still shames other lists and its the oldest. Wonder if they will giv it the same treatment like last time. Split the codex in 2 white dwarfs. That was so fun.

Right now rumours sustaining, GK DE BA.... with whatever magical fluff between.

Ward deciding Draigo is a bit short in the attack count department.

I've never had a good time playing either with or against Grey Knights. Boring armies to play.
I get the concept of them, and understand the angle they are going for. But ultimately, playing a 2k game against 14 models just isn't fun.

The BA need updated too ... fuck the other factions ... I want my book to not suck a bag of dicks. Now that Ward is gone I hope that Kelly hooks me up with 10 point Marines with JP and 3+fnp.
Kelly will write you a book that will be really good for it's one release month, but then it'll fall into a monobuild after six weeks. Most of the Kelly books are really badly internally balanced, with really really obvious choices in each slot.

Ward will write you a book that has horrendous fluff (so... go read Black Library instead), and it might not necessarily be an all-star at release but it will have longevity. 5th ed Marines stayed playable almost up until their 6th ed book. Can you say the same about Dark Eldar? (I will admit Dark Eldar suffered from the 6th/7th ed ruleset, but the point stands).

And then there's Cruddace and Vetock... not sure about Vetock yet, but Cruddace is pretty terrible.

i think the reason they are churning out 40k is how old some of the codexs are. From my LIMITED i repeat LIMITED understanding most of the fantasy codexes are only one editon behind the main not two in the case of 40k so this could just be a case of catch up. and now one of my friends wives will be pissed cus he runs the gay knights and now has to buy a new codex...god i couldnt marry a woman who hates any game not made by milton bradley

Exactly. We've just seen over a month of none stop ork releases... ONE BOOK is all the "release" the GKs are getting. The rest is just repackaging. And yet still there's people mindlessly droning on that GW only does space marines.

Some people just have a really short memory I guess.

Just BA, necrons and DE left now with a softcover? Or am I missing one (besides sisters, trololol)

Nope, I think that's all of them. After this, they will most likely update the current 6th edition armies so all of them get unique tactical cards etc.

I wouldn't be surprised if they turned up the speed of getting these out. It's a bit embarrassing to have 5th edition codexes right now after all. I think it's a good sign that they are upping the ante on this issue :)

Well, I hear people say embarrasing to still have a 5th edition codex. But at the same time, that's like what? 4-5 years ago max (except for BA). 6th was only a brief moment in time that lasted 2 years.

It's still impressive that they are churning them out so quickly, but I do hope 7th and their codexes will last a bit longer and that the quick release pace will slow down (with maybe the odd new model/dataslate in between).

Personally I think the armies will go over more to a sporadic update and dataslates after everyone is updated to 7th (Where everyone have their own tactical cards etc). It seems to be the way things are going.

Solely my own opinion though :D

Not a problem anymore as he seems to have left GW in May '14 according to his Linkedin profile.
But it was never really a problem, because the fluff is entirely mutable and you could ignore all the crap in the codexes anyway. Besides, Ward was far from the only one doing shitty stuff with fluff.

And yes, I know he's gone know, and I'm sad about it because he was one of the few actual RULES writers GW had worth a damn.

I have a suspicion that this is why we have 7th edition now because Ward left in May 14, GW wanted to replace all the work with his name on or the rules that he appeared in. It does look like a douche move by GW but if we can get good rules & good fluff that would be a big bonus

:good:

Lol GW really cant win can they , we used to hear " come GW you take too long to release new codex/models for *insert 40k faction* " now its "oh GW you are releasing too much for 40k"

GW Gamers wanting the opposite since 75
I think personally the best release schedule was the start of 6th when it was a 3 month cycle including a 40k and fantasy book, now it just all seems to merge into each other.

Not a problem anymore as he seems to have left GW in May '14 according to his Linkedin profile.
How come he left? I never even realised.

Mat Ward made good rules.

Unbalanced compared to those written by others, but internally? They were pretty well balanced (Fantasy 8th edition magic, notwithstanding - and that's more down to how some unupdated armies were able to capitalise on the radically different mechanic), with several options. Purifiers, Coteaz, Paladins were all fairly well done. Some options are clearly better than others (I never saw Interceptors, but that was down to the core mechanics, more than anything).

His fluff writing (or his approval of said fluff before some clever cunt comes in and says "he may not have written all of it) reads like a 13 year old hyper on sugar so much they can taste colours - which funnily enough is their target audience - which oddly enough, as older sarcastic gamers, seem to put on the newer younger up and coming gamers.

I am wondering what a Grey Knights Land Raider is. No other Marine Faction has it's own boxed Land Raider. Is this a new model with Psycannons? I hope so.
