Skaven next?



Via an Anonymous Source:

This weekends white dwarf teasers say something along the lines of 'they came from the underworld'.

Though this could be Necrons to, the underworld seems more of a skaven thing,
The Endtimes book 4 will contain skaven, with new models similar to Nagash and Glottkin releases. Then Necrons will be realeased last week of January/First week of February.

Next 40k campaign

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
I have a bit of info in regards to the new campaign set.

While the date is currently unknown the forces within are crimson slaughter and dark angels. The idea behind the set is that you buy the Dark vengeance expansions plus the dark vengeance starter kit plus the campaign box and end up with all the required models to run any of the formations in the books. 

No real idea on the contents as of yet asides from the chaos character being a sorcerer and the da having either a da specific tactical squad or 10 company vets. My source wasn't too clear to tell you the truth. Oh the dark vengeance story missions will also be a part of the campaign and reworked a bit to be used in regular games.

Necron Releases Soon?


Over the last week we have been getting alot of rumours that Necrons will get their new codex before the end of the year.
well now we actually have some proof that those rumours were infact true or at least partially.



Above it looks like a new overlord on the new base size aswell. Looks like it could be part of the new trend of a new plastic character and three existing kits. Or maybe even the rumoured overlord kit.




The Mephrit Dynasty were rumoured to be fighting alongside the BA. Looks like the new force org chart for them adding another compulsery Troop choice

READ IT BECAUSE
One of Warhammer 40,000's great mysteries is explored. Why did The Blood Angels ally with their Archenemy the Necrons at Devil's Crag? This story may have the answers.

Necron Rumours


Via Bigred on BOLS

Codex Necrons:

Schedule
Crammed into the GW schedule right before the new year.
Pre-orders Dec. 19th
Street date: Dec 26th
(Previous chatter from last month says first week of January)

Models
Little to no new models (a la Grey Knights)
(scattered chatter says perhaps 1 character clampack and 1 Destroyer/DestroyerLord plastic kit)

Rules
Look for Nerfs to the following:

Doom Scythes
Night Scythes

Tesla will get an overhaul to their rules.
Deathray will receive a big overhaul to how it targets models.

Characters remain fundamentally unchanged.
The Stormlord will recieve a Necron themed orbital bombardment of some type once per game.

Warlord Traits are good with some granting individual units USRs, while another listed granted an improved version of Reanimation Protocols

Updates to the information Below
via warseer's Iuchiban
Lords of War 2, Dante and Gabriel Seth.
Reclusiarchs gone?  Yes

Gabriel is a LoW. Basically the same, but lost his special attack. Now he causes +1 hit, for any 6 to wound.

Furiosos: Same cost, but the claws now cost +10 points. Getting additional attacks rule is gone. Now claws are Sx2, Shred, AP2.



Priests only in hq now, so no lesser version in elites?
Correct.

Corbulo and lemartes, are they hqs now?
Yes and No. Lemartes is and IC that can only join DC units. Uses an Elite slot.

Priests bolster ws in area effect and fnp for their squad?
Both affect only to their squad.

Who can take heavy flamer?
Tactical squads and Sternguard Veterans (Max 2 per unit)

Does Mephiston have access to anything that makes him move faster than 6" in movement phase, e.g. Jump pack or Psychic abilitiy like "Wings of Sanguinius".
No

Sanginor, is he an IC?
No

Sanguinor has the cost of a Stormraven.

The rules are basically the same, but he does not improve the stats of a character anymore. This rule is gone.

Can you confirm if Dante still unlocks Sanguinary Guard as troops?
no, he does not unlock SG as tropos. BTW I haven't seen any FoC unlocking in the codex. Not even the command squad, which is Elite now.

Any news on the 2 tycho?
Tyco now does not ingore armour saves. His comb¡ weapon cannot use special ammo anymore.

So can tactical squads take 2 heavy flamers or just sternguard? Aww, no Devastators with flamers.
1 Heavy Flamer for tactical squads, 2 for veterans and no Heavy Flamers in Devastators

How does the terminator banner work?
Banner allows to reroll failed moral and pinning tests. 12" bubble

Is there still a priest in honour guard?
Honor Guard is gone from the codex.

Can sangujnary priests still take bikes/jp/terminator armour?
He can buy a bike, but not a Terminator armour.

Are Sternguard and Vanguard as per codex SM?
Basically yes, but both with FC special rule

Are there any special Terminator units?
No

Can bike squads and bike command squads take grav guns?
Bike units can take grav guns. Bike command squads do not exist.

Corbulo gives to all BA units at 6" +1WS & +1I. Not accumulative with an standard chalice bonus. 120 points, 3 wounds

So far, my first impression of the codex is quite positive. Specially the detachment. This +1 I when charging is sweet!!!!!

New Blood Angel Models spotted!



Below is an image that looks to be the sons of sanguinous digital edition. The Lord is the one from Deathstorm but the librarian in terminator armour is new model and the terminators are blood angel specific.




Last Space Hulk Run



Space Hulk has gone up for pre-order again but GW have stated 'once they are gone this time, they are gone for good!'

More likely GW found extra copies and since it was so popular decided to sell them now.

Endtimes for 40k



Via Heresy30k

End time for 40K is coming!

At the recent Black Library Weekender, some interesting things came up.  The most significant of which was vastly overlooked.  The End Times for 40K is coming.  Remember that little bit in the 6th edition Rule book that said there was a flaw in the Golden Throne?  Well, that little hint has grown into a full blown story line.

Graham McNeil said he had to got approval from the powers (probably due to the success of the End Times in Warhammer) to bring a similar story to 40K.  And it will start with the Ultramarines.

He has to write Crimson King first, then Battle for Macragge a space marine battle novel, then on to...Guilliman. That is right, the Primarch of the Ultramarines is coming back!   It will be part of the next Ultramarine story arc. He also said he is back for good, not just as a plot device to be put away when finished with.

Hmmmmm........

I for one, cannot wait to see most of the good guy Primarchs come back.

Sanguinary guard codex details


Via Anonymous Source

Also, after some time with a magnifying glass, the WD preview page for Sanguinary Guard shows:
165 points base
Can upgrade to 10-man for 35pts/model
All have the "Encarmine sword" as stock, but may take an "Encarmine axe" for free
Still have Fearless
Lose Red Thirst in favor of Furious Charge
Death masks are now 1 pt/model as opposed to 5 pts/model
Can still take power fists, plasma pistols, inferno pistols
Chapter banner is now 5 pts cheaper


The new tactical box does feature the heavy flamer and a heavy bolter.  No mention of the missile launcher.  And grav guns ARE in the box, meaning grav weaponry made it to the blood angels.  The hand flamers and inferno pistols will still be in the codex as well since the tactical squad has them in the kit.

Fantasy/40k crossover? Warning, Spoilers


 of Chaos on a mission at one point and while there meets, and is aided by, a scholar, a sorcerer, and an unusually large knight in gleaming silver armor. He is described as speaking in a strange language and claims that he has made a name for himself within the Realms of Chaos. When he fights demons he can fling out his hand and have blue flame erupt amongst them (storm bolter with psy bolts?). 


He distracts the demons long enough so that Araloth can complete his mission and on his way back out the elf sees the "knight" impaled upon a spear but still alive. He wants to save him but the scholar says that he will be fine and that the demons cannot ever truly kill him.

So it never says it's him... but it definitely sounds like Draigo to me. An overly large "knight" wandering the Realms of Chaos who is well known by its inhabitants? I think we just had out first 40k/Fantasy cross over in awhile. I think the writers thought they were being more subtle about it then they were...

New Blood Angels Codex Cover



A comparison between the current (above) and new (below) Blood Angels Codexes.

The new one follows the new trend with a single guy specific to the army. The main difference being the codex Adeptus Astartes. Looks like this will be a new trend. Whether the do something similar with xenos armies is yet to be seen.


Blood Angel Leaked Pictures


                 List of the releases for next week.


Tactical squad looks like it could be existing tac box with blood angel bits.


The new Sanguinary priest. Looks like it could also replace current Corbulo as the chalice looks similar
