Really not wowed by the collectors edition Codecii - I have the Custodes one from 8th, and it's a glorious bespoke codex, whereas these are just bigger art with less branding. 

Seems like a missed opportunity to do a "Codex Astartes" cover or something more inspired. For the Necrons, something like the glyph work from FW's old Fall of Orpheus would have gone a long way. These books aren't valid for terribly long, so if the art game isn't up to snuff, it's a tough sell for x2 the price.

Therefore, I conclude, Valve should announce Half Life 2: Episode 3.

I think the Forge World dice are better. Even with the loss of one from the scatter die included if you don't play HH, they look much more useful.


I agree. I don’t like the squarer style of these and glad I grabbed some Ultramarines legion dice.

Square dice roll each face more evenly, especially if the faces are carved ;)

I want the Necrons dice. It's a collectors thing. Probably will use them, even if it's a struggle.

I'd buy 3 Lokhust Heavy Destroyers soon as released if it weren't for the need to get the books and dice. Soooo expensive.

Well maybe I still will treat myself to 3 :)

Codex and biker Chaplain for me too. I'll use the Chaplain for my RW. The ATV and the Techmarines manned turret I could quite happily leave. The big bunker turret thing with the Whirlwind launcher I'll happily but down the track, and I'm keen on getting some Assault Intercessors, Eradicates, and maybe some Heavy Intercessors down the track too. I'd love to get the starting 40k magazine, even just for the Marine and Necron.

I do find it hilarious that some people were saying the size of newer marine stuff looks great next to regular humans like Cadians, and then GW upsized the humans so they are the same height as marines again :lol: :lol: :lol:

as someone who bought their chapter dice when they came out last edition, the marine dice are very nice and seem to be pretty well balanced.

I'll probably buy the codex and each of the miniatures honestly. Undecided on the "fancy" codex, I always buy the fancy blood angels ones, but not sure I will buy the fancy version of this one.

That chaplain is beautiful!! Also I don’t believe the chaplain turret and ATV are ETB, could very possibly be wrong though?

Not to be rude but you are wrong 😜 they are etb kits.

Good too know cheers mate 😊

I'll be picking up the Codex and cards for sure, I must admit I was expecting later in October so this is great news.

I'm still confused as to how supplements work now (eg Ultras etc) and whether these new cards replace Chapter specific ones as well?

Yep, fair enough and makes sense. Still don’t like them though :D

I do like the SM cover art, tempeted to buy physical version.

Hope we get some sneak peaks until release. wonder if we will have some suprises. Im finding it odd that Veteran intercessors have a entry, but no models shown...

£29 for a single ETB character? Lord Felthius was only £25 as I recall and he came with 3 terminators. Count me out. Cheaper to buy a spare bike and convert.

I think Veteran Intercessors will be the same as Astra Militarum Veterans ..... No actual kit so have to be either converted or just painted differently....

Well those prices are a bit higher than I worked out which is even higher than I had hoped at best case. Almost £75 for a the 3 primaris stuff is a bit ridiculous!

I play Ravenwing and I'll be skipping that model and make my own. In Australia that will be almost $80 I'd say. Priced higher than the current codex of $70 so its a no from me...

Yea if the GBPx2=CAD formula holds true then it's $58 before taxes for the chaplain and $53 for the turret. The scouts line up with the current $40.

The silent king being 200 is...yeesh, a hard sell for sure. Like I'm sure it's going to be a massive model with tons of details. But is it going to be equivalent to archaon? Because that's a huge model and has the about the same price point
