News

  • 2015 ITC Poll Results are in. You can read them, here.

  • Skitarii Pre-Order Special is still in effect! Get your hands on some awesome new models at a 25% discount. Check out these cool videos from GW showing off the new models.

  • Apparently GW answered the question of why Kharn isn’t in the Codex: Khorne Daemonkin book. Supposedly, no one else will fight with him except other Berzerkers. Lame!

Upcoming ITC Events

Rumors: The Rumor Section is gathered from the web and is not in any way information we receive from  any manufacturer nor is it necessarily accurate. This section of the podcast is intended for entertainment purposes only.

  • Some rumors floating around that Eldar may be the codex released after AdMech? Wow if true. Rumors are saying Codex: Craftworld Eldar though, and the current book is just Codex: Eldar. Maybe this will be a supplement? Either way, the rumor is Plastic Autarch and new Plastic Jet Bikes.
  • Rumors that a Skitarii Codex is immanent. Exciting it true. Rumors of an HQ unit in the book, too, which will be nice.
  • AdMech Sicarians rumored to be coming out? Supposedly a box set of 5 models.
  • AdMech/Skitarii rumored to be a 3 week release in total.
  • Decurion Style Detachments are said to be the future of army construction in 40k. GW saw unpopular kits sell quickly, such as Tomb Blades, and decided that this was the way forward. Decurion Detachments are true to the fluff, sort of balanced, and sell models that would otherwise not be very popular. Aparently some armies like Space Marines will still have a more traditional FoC to represent the way they fight, but many armies will break from that, entirely.
  • That said, do not expect big changes to the core books of 7th ed which are largely considered to be done. Rumors indicate we will be seeing 18 months of sub-codex releases on the way.
  • Some crazy rumors on the way of Genestealer Cult and Genestealers being removed from the Nid faction? They’ll likely be Battle Brothers with Nids, but still, interesting. Also, rumors that a Dominatrix will be appearing in the Nid dex alongside a new APoc release, which would be awesome.
  • Rumors of Dark Angel, Tzeetch releases, more rumors of an Assassin boxed game, Death Watch, Horus Heresy? All very cool, if true.
  • Warhammer Visions magazine to be getting an update?

    I had to look that up after you mentioned it. I got as far as “The onager or Asiatic wild ass…” on wikipedia before I fell out of my chair laughing.
