Rumors

  • Bioware, the creators of Mass Effect are rumored to be working on Mass Effect 4 and…wait for it….supposedly have acquired the rights to Warhammer 40K!!! They are going to make a 3rd person game like Space Marine! This is rad because for one the games will continue to come out and for 2, Bioware are an absolutely top notch developer with games like Baulder’s Gate behind them. However, we have a source who was the lead animator for Warhammer Online that is saying he can’t substantiate this rumor and finds it highly dubious. He stated his contacts in the industry have heard nothing about it and the fact that “Bioware” and not “EA” were mentioned as the acquiring party means this is probably hogwash. Check out the notes for the link. http://www.examiner.com/article/mass-effect-4-developer-purchases-new-video-game-franchise

  • The release schedule continues to look like Space marines after Eldar, with Nids, IG and Orks in 2014. Once those are knocked out, that only leaves Blood Angels (which are rumored to be in the process of early development, now), Space Wolves, Dark Eldar, Black Templars and Sisters who supposedly have their plastic kits already done. After that, the rumored mini-dexes will be released and that will be cool. It will be interesting to see how 6th develops.

    Thanks for getting to my list 🙂 I’m glad you like it. For the first list a few clarifications, the wyches are ten strong to boost up with wracks and grotesques and apply a third full unit of pressure on the line, as you can see in the second list ( my competitive one) I run them in five man squads, and yes with haywires. Also, the archon has a venomblade and a shadowfield.
    The reaver unit is only 156 pts and people hate it hence why I use it.

      Nice, I will have to give that a try and I love the Reaver models but can’t seem to get them where I want them. How do you use them?
