Just announced at Blood and Glory!

https://www.warhamme...omepage-post-3/

Blood Angels, along with Dark Angels and Deamons will be out before the end of the year.

As a Blood Angels player, this makes me happy! In a perfect world the Blood Angels come out before my cake day on the 5th!

Also reckon that this rules out the Lion as the next Primarch. Unless GW are holding their cards very, very close to their chests.

Disappointed that we won't see Orks before the end of the year but then again we've had a good number of Xenos 'dexes so it's only fair the others get some attention, too.

 

Thanks for the info! :tu:

Slight nitpick, the link says Angels in 2017, Daemons early 2018.


"I have of late - but wherefore I know not - lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises; and indeed it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory; this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilential congregation of vapours. What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust? man delights not me: no, nor woman neither. Nor woman neither."

I was hoping for a Dark Angels book this year but was expecting maybe Tau and another Chapter, so awesome times!

This is a nice suprise as I didn't expect DA + BA before summer 2018. Instead all my armies will have new codices by the end of the year. Very happy!

If he were coming now, they wouldn't release the Codex just like that along the Blood Angels one. Guess you'll have to be bummed. :D

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.

All it takes is one Datasheet and a plastic release...

 

...at a time of the year a surprise announcement around Black Friday would be quite expected.  Not holding my breath yet, but I'm not ruling it out either!  Because it looks like the Blood Angels will be first, so probably early December.  that means the DANGEL Zone around Christmas!  There's almost 2 months yet to make a big announcement.

 

And worse.  If no Lion, that means Russ would be next, which is definitely the more boring storywise!

Literally?  The WORST option.  The most boring story wise.  Least helpful to a faction (Khorne's already pretty strong).   Probably the most boring of all the Chaos Primarchs in look.  (I mean, COME ON!  Fulgrim's description and art is AWESOME!  Perturabo or Lorgar would  be fascinating to see now!  Angron is... basically another Khorne thing. Yawn.)  Literally any other Primarch would be more interesting, Chaos or otherwise...

 

Shoot, that's probably why he would be next, the most boring and least work.  Darn you for messing with my mind!

From what I understand the money is currently on Fulgrim next, for daemon Primarchs.

Don't hold your breath for either though, it will likely be a minute.

Angron in ADBs Heresy books is by far one of the most interesting Primarchs, so I fundamentally disagree with calling him boring story wise.
And there are ALOT of Khorne players out there that would love to see him along with some new Bezerkers.

Seems that Loyalists need a 2nd Primarch before Chaos gets a third. I'm hoping to see The Lion come with DA. But Russ with Wolves to mirror Magnus wouldn't surprise me either.

Dunno if anyone else has said this yet (if so, please forgive me as I don't mean to plagiarize):

 

Does anyone else think it's curious that the two chapters being released during December have Red & Green heraldry (and the traditional colors for Christmas are Red & Green)? huh.png

Stolen from the inner circle in fb. Treat with all the salt required.

So the Codex is finally announced and a good friend of mine has given me some juicy tidbits.

Preorder on the 2nd of December
Available on the 9th of December

A few changes in a couple of units. Points moving to match the vanilla codex.

No Sammael in Sableclaw in the codex

Black knights and deathwing terminators may now be upgraded to a command squad (1 per army) this basically gives them the bodyguard ability.

Now the juicy stuff

Abilities

And they shall know no fear

Inner circle
This unit automatically passes morale checks. In addition it may reroll at to hit rolls against Heretic Astartes and all to hit and to wound rolls against Fallen in the fight phase

Ravenwing
If this unit moves it gains a 6+ invulnerable save to all shooting attacks. If it advances it gains a 5+ Invulnerable save to all shooting attacks

Grim Resolve
All UNFORGIVEN units may Overwatch on a 5+ and will only lose one model to a failed morale test

Have the same space marine stratagems as vanilla marines with the exception of
Masterful marksmanship
Cluster mines
Tremor shells

Also access to these unique stratagems

Fury of the First
2CP
Use this stratagem in your shooting phase. All plasma weapons may use the supercharge weapon template but ignore any mortal wounds that would be caused by a roll of 1.

Repent for Tomorrow You Die
Unforgiven Stratagem
1CP
Use this stratagem before overwatch, the UNFORGIVEN unit may fire overwatch at full BS.

Teleport Homer
Unforgiven Stratagem
2CP
Play at the beginning of your turn. Any DEATHWING unit may deepstrike from reserve within 9" of an enemy unit as long as it is within 6" of a RAVENWING UNIT

Deathwing Assault
Unforgiven Stratagem
2CP
Play at the beginning of your turn, any DEATHWING unit entering by deepstrike may fire twice or add 3" to a charge roll this turn.

Same standard space marine Warlord Traits as vanilla marines with the following unique ones.

Unforgiven
Hold at all costs
Your warlord and UNFORGIVEN units within 9" of your Warlord may roll a D6 for every wound sustained, on a 5+ it is ignored.

Unforgiven
Courage of the First Legion
UNFORGIVEN units in your army may use your Warlords Leadership for morale checks.

Deathwing
The Hunt
Any enemy Character that your Warlord slays in the fight phase grants one victory point

Ravenwing
Rapid Manoeuvres
Your warlord and any RAVENWING units within 6" of him may add 2" to all move, Advance and charge distances and add +1 to all JINK rolls

Relics

Sacred standard
Only one sacred standard can be taken per army

Standard of Devestation
All UNFORGIVEN units within 9" of the standard may fire twice in the shooting phase and automatically pass morale checks.

Standard of Retribution
All UNFORGIVEN units within 9" of the standard may attack twice in the fight phase and automatically pass morale checks.

Standard of Fortitude
All UNFORGIVEN units within 9" of the standard when suffering an unsaved wound may roll a D6 on a 5+ the wound is ignored and automatically pass morale checks.

Mace of Redemption
S+3 Ap-3 D2
If a unit suffers damage from this weapon reduce WS by 1 until the end of the next fight phase.
Against Heretic Astartes weapon is AP -4

Lion's Roar
When attacking with this weapon, choose one or both of the profiles below. If you choose both, subtract 1 from all hit rolls for this weapon-
Boltgun 24" Rapid Fire 1 S4 AP0 D1
Plasma 24" AssaultD3 S7 AP-3 D1

Foe Smiter
Rapid fire 3 S4 AP-1 D1

Monster Slayer of Caliban
S+2 AP-2 D d3
If this weapon causes at least one unsaved wound roll a D6 on a 6 the model is removed from play. Does not effect models with the VEHICLE keyword

Shroud of Heroes
The shroud of heroes confers a 4+ cover save and for each unsaved wound roll a D6 on a 6+ the save is ignored

And finally the biggest news in my opinion

Lion El’Jonson
M 8"
WS 2+
BS 2+
S 6
T 6
W 9
A 7
Ld 10
Sv 2+

Hope Melee Melee S+2 AP -3 D 2 If you roll a wound roll of 6+ for this weapon, it inflicts Mortal Wounds instead of its normal damage.

Despair 18” AssaultD3 S8 AP -3 D3 If a unit suffers any damage from this weapon, roll a D6 on a 6 the unit suffers D3 Mortal Wounds

And they shall know no fear

Master of the First – If your army is battleforged, you receive an additional 3 CP if Lion El’Jonson is your Warlord.

Armour of the Order – Lion El’Jonson has a 3+ invulnerable save. In addition all UNFORGIVEN units within 8” receive an 5+ Invulnerable save.

Blade Master - For every unsaved wound Lion El'Jonson causes in the fight phase he can immediately make an additional attack. This ability can only be used once per fight phase.

Master Strategist- each time a stratagem is used roll a D6 on a 4+ the CP for that stratagem is not spent

I Primarch – You can re-roll any failed hit and wound rolls for friendly UNFORGIVEN units within 6” of Lion El’Jonson
