From anonymous sources at Faeit 212
 

*Wolves early / middle 2014, Inquisition fall / end 2014, Blood Angels fall / end 2015.*Not many releases for Wolves, just specific flyer variants.*Finecast big predator wolf.*Wulven units included.*They also get almost all Marine releases till then, apart of flyers.*Inquisition all three ordos, two different armies (grey knights and sororitas). Inquisitors can replace IG HQs.*Blood Angels on early re-design. 

So, according to the rumor here we'll get a new codex sometimes next year. Other than flyers I don't think we need a new codex. What are all of your thoughts on the subject?

I also don't really feel that we need it yet. Though, Id like a nice flyer. 

Mind you its nice that we are getting love with this edition instead of, what, 10 years between codices. (Did I say that right? :P )

When I first read the above I thought the flyer was a big predator wolf. I almost rejected my breakfast. But it looks like he is saying some flyer variants for us (needed!) and a large predator wolf model (cool!). If not, and we are getting a large flying wolf as a flyer I will resume operation breakfast rejection.

It leaves nothing. Not hope, not pain, not forgiveness."

Really? The only problem I can wolves having is with fliers, but everyone bar tau has that.

And a new codex may not help us competitively, just look at the still born Chaos Marine codex.....

So far as my games go... Could use a flyer or flak missiles. Other than that just getting us square to the new rules is fine. I like our Codex.

Maybe it's me but I've found I've gone from winning games regularly to drawing/losing a lot more. I really struggle with getting the best out of Grey Hunters to the degree where if I was going to carry on using wolves I would just take units of 5 in razorbacks. unsure.png

We may as well just give up, moan that our Codex is broken and all play Cron, Tau or whatever the current easy win army is.

Thought the Wolves were made of tougher things.

'fraid I don't see Wolves being an uncompetitive army at all. If anything with the advent of 6th ed we became one of the nastiest armies in the game. Anyone care to tell me why this is no longer the case?

Because we have no flyers or things on huge bases. And we don't have a hardback Dex so we must be uncompetitive. Besides...who cares about being competitive.

I'm suspicious of claims that GW will release Wulfen again.

Given their likely inclusion in the HH rules in due course, a FW release seems more likely.

How cool would it be if the codex cover was the Battle of the Fang cover? Bjorn himself! Blood of Asaheim cover would be nice, but the guy is sporting a Deathwatch shoulder pad. For now the rumour seems like a wishlist... I'd rather wait until we are feed more. For now we rally the packs and kick butt in what new armies they throw at us! The key to victory against new codex/armies is strategy and knowing your wolf army.

To be honest, the reason I had focused on my other armies had nothing to do with competitiveness /lack of, though I admit the main reason I'mcoming back is I don't have to tailor my list and buy the £40+ new kits to not get kurbstomped.

And there is nothing like long fangs laying down withering fire with plasma and las cannon :P

UK or US?
 
And could you point me in the direction of the lists so we don't  derail this thread?
 
And to everyone else, everyone plays for different reasons. I've played the army for 12 years and love the models, background and imagery. I own every GW book which even fleetingly features wolves. But I also like to be able to compete at tournaments. That doesn't make me wrong and you right.

So ally with an army and grab a flyer. Stop boohooing about an outdated dex when 6th has provided a means around it.

While we are not in any way in dire need of a Codex there are a few things that would be nice to have updated(IMHO):

 

1: Our named HQ's are too expensive - they are cool, but it's way more effective to just take Rune Priests
2: No way to deal with fliers outside allies / ADL
3: Bloodclaws are a little "meh"

Other nice things would be:
A look at our Scouts
Useful Dreadnoughts
Leman Russ tanks ^^

Some way to have AP2 at initiative (Frost Weapons)
Make Saga's and or "Runes" play (more) an active role in our army
A cool warlord traits table
