I'm kind of glad Sisters aren't in one tbh. It'd feel like day 1 DLC.


You don't think it will be anyway? The 2 week FAQ will be needed to either sort of the OP elements (Index Acts of Faith) or to try and boost the weak and bland (beta Dex style)

A rise in the psychic background would be a good excuse for the Sisters to be more powerful as they channel the worship of the Emperor.....


2-week FAQs A) very rarely change the actual function of rules, unless there's something truly insanely overpowered in a codex, mostly they fix clumsy wording, and B ) never cost money. Putting sisters in one of the PA books would feel like Day 1 DLC because not only would you have to buy a codex you'd have to buy a supplement book with all the rules they withheld from the codex to put in the PA book.

It does sadden me to learn though that "PA" stands for, as it always does, "Power Armor."

And not even the kind that needs the love (Some kind of Psychic Awakening CERTAINLY wouldn't make sense to have some kind of, I dunno, psychic themed space marine chapter making some kind of appearance???)

I was hoping for some rework on some little things, like the Exarch Powers. I find the C'tan extremely boring right now. In 5th they were not particulary impressive, but they offered other (not very good but fluffy) power like Lord of Fire or Writhing Worldscape.
Or Cryptek Harbingers that gave a little customization. At least gave us access to Eldricht Lance for Cryptek.

I'm quite bored to have almost next to nothing interesting to chose for any HQ unit.


It's like 3rd edition all over again!

Options? Who wants options? [/s]

At least back then our C'Tan were sort of hard counters to S4 weapons, with T8. Now, T8 is like a joke and not a particularly funny one. There are just so many things that could be done with Necrons, like most Xenos, but just won't be. I'd still be happy if we just get some plastic characters and our Pariah back. Considering the whole War in Heaven things was kind of about being anti-Warp, anti-Psychic, it's silly that "modern" Necrons have nothing to against anything that pertains to the Warp and psychers...

Orks say hi! Well okay there was like 2.5(?) months between supplement but still rather quickly orks had to buy supplement.

edit: And hoping book involving necrons comes at reasonable pace but guess late 2020 earliest. Ah well. I should have 15k painted by that time then at least.

I'd say the most likely candidate is a warlock, doesn't match exactly but closer than an autarch or farseer.
I'd suspect it's just a generic warlock but there was that artwork for a warlock when the Jain zar/drazar artwork leaked so maybe there's a new warlock model/character coming possibly?
Edit: This is referring to the regimental standard artwork.

Any thoughts on the fact that asuryan is known as the phoenix king, maybe the eldar pantheon is rising?

Should just be an Autarch,


If it is, it looks very different from the Autarch in the store.

I think they removed the foot autarch because GW hate fun and creativity.

Of course there will be a lot more books, there very profitable and can be churned out much faster than miniatures. Also due to the higher price tag most people only buy codexs for the armies they play, these will sell to a much wider audience.

This looks like the answer to what GW were going to do once all the codexs were done, so 2 years or so of these and then 9th and a new run of codexs.

Your last point is especially laughable and comical, because not only the 7th ed Valkyrie shown dumber things (like being able to throw the troopers without parachutes out of its hatches, no harm done) - Irbis

Ugh the line up already has 3 Space Marine headlining ones? I guess it was absolutely dumb of me to hope we'd actually give the other factions a bit more shine for a change.

Also we're seriously going to have the Nids lose to the BAngles in a big campaign right after the last big campaign both were in was exactly that again? Is it too much for the Nids to maybe win this time? I'd say let's hope Orks win for a change too but these are Orks we're talking about there's no way they'll do anything but lose to the Marines.

In fact I'm willing to bet now already that every single one of these campaign books starring Marines is gonna just be another 'then the Marines win' story.

The biggest surprise for me is that it's just two factions a book, I would've thought Harlequins were a definite inclusion in Phoenix Rising.

it is if all 4 campaign books are showcasing Marines as the heroes that always win - lets face it they will be needed to save the Eldar in the first book as well.

3/10? Where did you get that from?

Of the 3 next books rumoured, all feature Marines. After that it's anyone's guess but currently it's 3/4 (the only one not featuring Marines being Phoenix Rising).

Thats a bit unexpected- I assumed each book was going to run for a couple of months. Makes the unit and character release limit understandable, plus it lookalike these can fit around larger releases too.
Looking forward to Nids - the model line is very good with few finecast left- thinking biovores/pyrovore kit ..maybe plastic lictors or bringing back shrikes. a character could be interesting- deathleaper/red terror or maybe something new? Surprised they will be coming so quickly.

Harlequins strike me as a small, complete subfaction. I don't expect to see much for them often if ever.


On the books... I really think folks are getting carried away, both in the amount they're expecting and the amount of whining about marines.

We get it. We know. But it doesn't help to derail every thread every time marines are tangentially related to the topic.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

3/8, and if you think "vs orks, vs chaos, and vs nids" is gonna be anything but utterly gratuitous bolter porn of Marines mowing down mooks and random chaplains murking toxicrenes and aggressors punching out bloodthirsters then I dunno, maybe you haven't read any 40k fluff?

There's no guarantee that every faction will get a model release remember, it's entirely possible that Nids get nothing new as they're drowned in a sea of new, red, power armoured models.

It's been about five years since the last new Tyranid model release, even if there's just a Finecast replacement it'll be nice to see.

Yeah, as I said Nids are doing really well with our plastic range of kits..no expectations but anything would be nice.. but yes I foresee the Nids threatening to d something and then losing terribly to the boys in red...

Yeah I dunno how that can easily fit into GW's release schedule. Phoenix Rising and Ossiarch Bonereapers are coming in October, Sisters and Chapter Approved in November, they tend not to release new things in December in favour of battleforces. That doesn't leave a whole lot of space for two more books, especially if they want the same lead-up time for them that Phoenix Rising got.

It's possible but would be very tight.

Frankly, I'd love to see some funky new stuff pop up. Another Primarch or two, new characters, new options, or heck, even old units like the Pariahs (or an option to Lychguard to make them have similar abilities).
