Big News from Games Workshop!

Holy smokes, GW dropped some big time news! 3 new Codexes for 8th ed 40k, something big and new for Age of Sigmar, a new Darkoath Warqueen, and a new Shadespire warband. WOW!

3 new Codexes announced, 2 this year!

Angels of Death this year followed closely by Daemons in the beginning of the new year! Wowzers, these are coming out fast.

A Darkoath Warqueen for AoS. This model is AWESOME!

They also announced something big and new coming for AoS as well as a hint that the age of hope is coming to an end? Didn’t it just begin?

Lastly, a new warband for Shadespire: the Skaven!

Holy smokes, too much cool stuff on the way!

    Aww, Tau still waiting

    • Blight November 3, 2017 6:54 pm

      Guy who got the timing right on those 3 said Tau in March. Didn’t put much stock into it at the time but this is making me pay attention. Wish I could remember or find the rest of that list they posted.

        huh, interesting

    Great news, but I hope LVO doesn’t have a time hold on rules updates that would block out the new January release Daemons codex? Would suck hard for daemons, especially if a January codex meant that we get no specific improvements in December chapter approved (whereas armies later down the codex line might see some tailored upgrades in December).

      We don’t.

      • Nick November 3, 2017 6:11 pm

        Awesome, thanks for the info! I’m getting hyped!

    So aside from Xenos, we are really left with only Thousand Sons and Space Wolves? I guess Sisters of Battle too and Imperial Knights (wonder if the Renegade Knights will get their own books?…

    Wow- poor Orks, Tau, and Necron. At least Genestealer Cult and Dark Eldar each have a couple of Codexes to ally with…

      Deathwatch still need a book as well on the space marine side of things

    For the love of God, please give me good Kairos, Lords of Change, and Interesting Stratagems.

    I can handle the pain of probably bad horrors, and probably nerfed smite, just please let me run like 5 Lords of Change and let it be good.

    Oh I desperately hope daemons have a deepstrike mechanic added to them. They need the mobility and can’t really rely on summoning.
    Also hoping for some new Nurgle models but won’t hold my breath.

    • rvd1ofakind November 3, 2017 9:22 pm

      Wait what? There are seriously people who don’t think this is a foregone conclusion? The deepstrike reveal will be my most disappointing reveal as I’ve known about it since the first deepstrike stratagem appeared on a Codex.

      There will not be new models. But they might convert Daemon Engines to Chaos Daemons(okay, I’m dreaming a bit here. But c’mon: they have both Chaos and Daemon keywords :p) or add in random models from other chaos factions.

      • The Drunken War Bee November 3, 2017 11:00 pm

        Well, if there is one model in the AoS range that could fit, it would be the gaunt summoner. He is quite a nice looking fellow, but I’m not sure how he would fit in.

        Maybe make up a special character? or perhaps, make him a chaos undivided unit. However much I’d love some new undivided attention, GW is moving away from that quite a bit lately.

  6. Fluger November 3, 2017 8:02 pm

    Come on Orks…

  7. rvd1ofakind November 3, 2017 9:27 pm

    Make Daemons great again.
    Put brimstones in the dumpster. Make an actual Greater daemon, herald, elites, troops army work where there is synergy

    “…the age of hope is coming to an end? Didn’t it just begin?”

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment. Sometimes, it’s a very short road 😉

    >3 new codices
    >2 space marines


    • Anggul November 4, 2017 12:54 am

      I guess it makes sense to release Blood Angels and Dark Angels together. It’s how they were released all thise years ago and hopefully they’ll both be released in the same timeslot, meaning more non-marine armies sooner.

  10. Anggul November 4, 2017 12:56 am

    Angels of Death style release, cool.

    I love that they’ve made a female version of the Darkoath Chieftain, it looks awesome!

  11. The Traitor November 4, 2017 1:24 am

    Please nerf brims to oblivion and make the other daemons better!!! Also, I wonder if Daemons will get a legion/chapter/regimrnte trait or equivalent, don’t think they’ll do as they already have “god-dependant” abilities, but wouldn’t that make them objectively worse than other codices?

    • Ujayim November 4, 2017 4:04 am

      Brims aren’t winning tournaments. You perceive them to be more of an issue than they are.

  12. Dakkath November 4, 2017 1:25 am

    So with these 3 out of the way, we’re still waiting on T’au, Orks, Necrons, Genestealer Cults, Dark Eldar, Harlequins, Ynarri, Thousand Sons, Khorne Daemonkin, the theoretical slaanesh-aligned chaos mixed faction, Space Wolves, Sisters of Battle, Deathwatch, Inquisition, Imperial Agents (assassins, sisters of silence, custodes, and everything else that hasn’t been covered by a codex), and possibly Imperial Knights unless they’re meant to be represented in total by their entry in the admech codex.

    • Subclavian Steel November 4, 2017 8:55 am

      I don’t think horne daemonkin are a thing anymore, so they probably won’t be getting their own codex again. Renegade knight codex is possible as well, but more likely I would expect their rules to be in the imperial knight codex.

      I read this in the Dawn of War Kroot Carnivore voice screaming “WHERE ARE THE TAU GUNS?!”

  14. Matt November 4, 2017 9:33 am

    Anyone think it’s suspicious that they are doing Blood Angels and Dark Angels codex but left out Space Wolves…. New models in the new years maybe?

    • abusepuppy November 5, 2017 5:50 am

      Or maybe even GW can’t rationalize releasing that many MEQ codices in one year while virtually the entire xenos range sits in the background.

  15. Shagrat November 4, 2017 10:13 am

    Oh for the love of Sanguinius, I hope the BA codex is good.

  16. SideshowLucifer November 5, 2017 1:51 pm

    Probably see Tau, Orks, Necrons and Space Wolves early next year. I would bet no show on the rest until new models can be released.

  17. Zork November 6, 2017 8:40 pm

    They should totally bring sanguinius back because we all know he’s not really dead…. Right guys?
