Already a thread in News & Rumours.

 

Date makes a lot of sense though, as this is the date for the Black Legion preorder

Novel by ADB, sequel to Talon of Horus. Talon of Horus was a huge success so it makes sense they'd link the releases together as this book is highly anticipated. You can find it on the Black Library website

Agreed. This would allude to either TSons being in the first 10 releases or early on in the next block. Excellent.

So if World Eaters and Emperor's Children are in this codex then the chance of them getting their own book for 8th Ed is, what, somewhere between fat chance and no chance? verymad.gif

The chance for them to get their own Codex remains unchanged. It just means they won't be getting one within the next few months....which is not exactly surprising since we're still waiting for the Death Guard Codex to drop and we still haven't gotten ANY leaks or rumours about them or their models anyway. ;)

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.

 

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

Wich date to trust ? 5th or 22 of august ?


I looked down the sights of my rifle, my target looked back. It's eyes were all the eyes I'd ever loved. They promised everything I could ever want. Love, comfort, safety. An end to this nightmare. I felt my will draining out of me, entranced by those eyes.

I'd say 22nd.

I mean even if that's not the likely date, it's better to expect the later and get positively surprised than the other way around. :D

Well, the 22. is a tuesday while the fifth is a saturday, one of them seems more in tune with usual releases.
Also; I'm hoping for the fifth as on the twentieth a couple of buddies and I are leaving for a short fate of konor centered holiday. ;)

World Eaters and Emperors Children will come. World Eaters likely first of the two. Though I'd be pleasantly surprised if EC was first. What I'm really curious about is if Typhus and Ahriman are in this codex. If not it bodes well for future special characters. I'm not super excited for this edition of the codex, but I'm extremely excited for the one that will come next.

I think the part about Legion tactics for Renegades is much more interesting. ;)

Me too, I've been considering throwing together a small force of tzeentch renegades, either Scourged or Oracles of Change.

They'll get codeces when they get their cult release waves.  Probably still in 8th edition - unless 8th edition rolls into 9th sooner than anyone expects at this point.  But since you're in the CSM codex, you almost certainly won't be getting your own codeces / release waves this year.  I expect at least one of the remaining cult legions to get their release next year, but that's pure guesswork on my part.

It's possible that some of the former aligned renegade forces may be retconned into cult legion subfactions, so it might be worth waiting until the Thousand Sons book is out before starting Scourged or the like as a tzeentch renegade army.

I did a quick count and can 41 that there are definitely models for (not counting fortifications) or kits to make the models.

This just brings the stuff up to 8th edition, and it will give GW time to make new subfactions.
Eh. Might pick this up for the fluff.
