I mean, yeah? 9th isnt likely to be ground breaking more skin to AOS 1st to 2nd or maybe a 3rd to 4th. Certainly not a 7th to 8th.
Is it wrong to claim this all as moot as 9th Ed is round the corner?...
You dont have to believe it, but this book was written 6 months ago when plaguebearers were terrorizing the top tables, and marines were lackluster. CA19 will reflect a meta months ago. it has to because of schedules and timetables of physically printing books.I don't for one second believe that the current codex will have marines drop in price. Not a chance in hell.
The issue is a points increase without being able to stay on the table any longer. There are a plethora of D2 weapons and all these shiny new marines are getting several bonuses including increases to damage. That and marines who sucked when CA19 was being written will likely get several points decreases.
It is almost certainly talking about OTHER loyalist books that are being updated. Not the current just released codex and its supplements.
I for one think its telling we havent had any previews of Chapter Approved. Last year and the year before there were previews and articles covering CA on Warhammer Community. GW is being strangely tight lipped on this release and for what reason?
