If some people get the idea that 40k releases are hindered in favour of AoS stuff, despite 40k is better supported than the new Edition of AoS, there is something wrong with Company-Customer communication

GW would benefit by going directly to the customer saying that it is not working as planned because of issues they cannot influence and all releases are months late, instead editing old posts, making a small comment somewhere and saying "it was always planned that way"


Or it’s just a case of the grass being greener. I’m not really sure how it’s GWs fault if people are just wrong about what has more support at the moment?

Does 1/4 being an upgrade sprue really count as KT being stuck with upgrade sprues?

short on plastic, short on workers, Warcry being done a while ago and was already in the warehouse and GW needed to make something up for Tau fast to hold the release date

a lot of things can cause this, as well as that GW thought people don't like Tau anyway so an upgrade sprue is enough

by not telling people what is going on, what is happening to plan, what is delayed, what will happen in future
saying nothing and hope that people don't recognise that something is going on, well GW could do better here

There appears to be an autogun option for the sisters initiates, so perhaps the generic unit will have an option to be fighty or shooty? Storm initiates and Initiate defenders?

It got split in two for convenience and to not let a single thread derail on "squats!!!", since "batch A" had plenty of details on the Templars.

Both batches came from B&C, not 4chan.

The 4chan ones contained the nonsense about the Harlequin transports, etc--a literal "clown car" joke. There was a huuuuuuuuugely expanded list of Craftworld/Aeldari stuff--that's the 4chan trash that Faeit+BoLS also started amplifying.

Problem is that the individual who posted the stuff on B&C had their posts removed. So there are screenshots out there of some of it but also some people who just kinda/sorta kept reposting snippets of it and it crossed wires with the 4chan trash.

Ok, thanks. That is good to know. The attribution in the reddit post I was linking to was confusing.

For clarification sake: The Aeldari-merger/clown-car/Baharroth rumour batch was not part of the B&C rumour double-strike, was it?

I’d still keep a pinch of salt handy.

It’s certainly looking good, but even the more reliable rumour could still have something put in for a laugh!

I hope it’s not Squats though.

So, someone on reddit got the following screenshot from the video:

Apparently, there's an option for autoguns too. I'd say the 40k version of the novitiates will have 2 loadouts: 1 CC oriented with autopistols + swords and one with autoguns. Which means a lot of options in the sprue.

As for the rumour list, Bob from War of Sigmar mentioned, in the comments of the article I linked earlier, he's heard Squats are getting "more than a kill team", so there's that.

Not sure how I feel regards squats, I'm not sure there's a niche for them now in their original guise. Do we need an additional imperium faction in decent armour with bolters?

That's not how business is done though. Saying nothing is a lot better than saying something that might be able to be interoperated or contorted into a completely different saying.

The Tyranid codex being conspicuously absent from the big rumour list could mean they're being saved for new content alongside Squats. It would be very fitting to be reintroduced by fighting their way out of an assault by a hive fleet.

As with everything, it depends on how they are worked back in the game. What Bob said was "more than a Kill Team", specifying he had heard about the Thudd Gun. That doesn't, however, mean a full army; it could be just a couple of units of Militarum Auxilia in the next IG Codex.

OK, the Pathfinders upgrade sprue is a bit silly. Having just assembled my Pathfinders for Kill Team, that kit already has a crazy amount of choices that stay on the sprue. For me a lot of that upgrade sprue will also stay on its sprue—ya fish heads, I’m talking to you!

I'll be pretty frigging salty if Nids are one of the last armies to get a codex, which is what this would seem to indicate, given their complete lack of any mention in the credible rumor. Somebody's gotta be last, but it's really a joke if it's one of the earlier 8th books (Nids, Eldar, and Guard are old and very much showing their age.)

Maybe the Octarius book will be a satisfying stopgap, but unless it has new datasheets for many units, I really doubt it's going to move the needle.

Yes, that would be good. Especially because you just know GW can't resist showing all the upgrade bits on their new Kill Team models and that leads to a really disjointed look of the squad. A picture of a more conventionally assembled squad wouldn't go amiss, especially since they've explicitly advertised this option for Guard and Orks and will no doubt follow suit with Sisters. Would be good to see that in pretty, colorful pictures.

I've got a good feeling about the inclusion of unarmored humans with auto weapons in the army. I have every intention of getting a squad or two of Novitiates, of course, but it also provides a place for Frateris Militia conversions where before the best you could do was work with allies. Which is not ideal for a number of reasons.

Nehekhara lives! Sort of!

I feel it would be most appropriate for Squats to be a non-Imperium faction.

Well are said to be firing on a Mechanicus ship in the bit of text from PA. They seemed to have been severed from the Imperium. In the old fluff they were largely independent but signed with Imperium but the fluff has changed so much since Rogue Trader and those sorts fo relationships don't exist in modern 40k. Be interesting to see how they bring them back fluff-wise as well as design wise. Non Imperium would be the most interesting..

So as a heads up, with the security certificate thing going on right now with Dakka(it's probably just a background oopsies)...it's gonna be a bit harder to keep the thread updated today.

Bear with me if/when GW does any previews! Thank you all for your patience.
