No. It obviously won't happen, as that crushes the mainstay of the TS product line.


Or... the ritual is successful, but only on one guy. Say hello to a new Thousand Sons character model for only £30!


But his last attempt was successful, but only on one marine.

I’d personally say it would be in Tzeentch’s interest to undo the Rubric for 2 reasons – He’ll get a better and stronger Legion of Thousand Son marines as they’ll be able to recruit properly again (though also maybe less reliable due to no longer being essentially robots), and, the flesh change would be back, giving him more things to play with.

I really do like the idea of Ahriman finally succeeding in reversing the Rubric across the board, and the potential that that then brings.

If this book is based around a new ritual to undo the rubric by psychically calling all able psykers to the Planet of the Sorcerers to power it, it’ll certainly be interesting to see what/if the Grey Knights and DA can do to stop it.

Really?

Do tell more, please!


Thousand Sons codex mentions (Second War in the Webway, page 30) Yvraine restoring life to 12 rubrics right in front of Ahriman, who promptly die. The passage ends with "But now he knows that the reversal of his Rubric is possible, and he knows who has the power to do it."

Considering that he's tried to reverse this in the past, perhaps he did drop the project only to have this proof of concept reignite his drive to see it succeed. I haven't read the Ahriman books from 40k yet though, so I can't speak to that storyline.


Why did they die straight away after being restored?

Because Ynnari and the Yncarne reasons. Something something, somehow split the webway tunnel and dragged them into the warp. Doesn't 100% say they died though, as Ahriman went after them trying to rescue them - so if he can survive it, in theory so could they.

Because Yvraine gave them life in a power dick move. Just to make Ahriman angry and distract him. Like "Look how easy can I do what you can't... but lolnope" and then kills them again.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

He probably doesn't know how to do it/have access to the same powers that Yvraine has at a guess. Of course it might not be in tzeentch's interest to give them bodies back.

Tzeentch doesnt even know what Tzeentch's best interests are. For all we know, the Rubric was their plan all along as a way to further damn the TS. Assisting a nascent challenger to their power does kinda seem like something they would do. Since left head & right head have differing ideas of what is best.

Yeah, if Tzeentch was angry about the Rubric, presumably it would have let Magnus kill Ahriman for doing it. Presumably. It's hard to speculate on any of Tzeentch's motivations or goals.

I would have hopped you two would have had a better grasp of that narative than this nonsense. They were losing the battle with the Thousand Sons (because GW permenantly wants to keep the Phoenix Lords as useless, I mean they were ALL there and couldn't deal with a few Rubrics) and Ahriman was about to win, it was literally a last gasp attempt to win by turning 3 Rubrics back into Marines and then dumping them into the warp to get Ahriman to go chasing after them and leave the Ynnari alone. Makes a lot of sense in that respect.

The emperor will rise from the throne and join the fight.

They'll make a model for each chaos god and for the emperor and the eldar gods. Other Xenos will get nothing. They'll be better than titans, but less than 500 points and completely change the meta. 9 new imperial factions will get codexes, 1 new Chaos based faction will get an inferior codex. Xenos will get nothing and they'll like it.

9th edition launches, the galaxy gets torn asunder, and the reborn emperor will have to start all over. Cadia will be pulled from the warp and rebuilt, abaddon will be banished back to the eye, where a Yvarine (sp?) raised Horus will kill him for his failures. Cawl will go rouge and try to usurp Emps, and start a whole new story in which Mars becomes the dominate power.

Nothing for Dark Angels, Grey Knights or Thousand Sons. I could absolutely see a box with a few dark Angels, a character, a single unit of grey knights, versus some Tsons.

Still, I'm really surprised that we have nothing about this release, not a peep, a rumour, nothing. Guess those DAs are indeed good at keeping secrets.


Nothing except a direct statement from GW that we should expect _A_ character with each book, no more, no less.

At this point we know the formula to expect: a pseudo-supplement for DA and TS.
On the plus side for TS, as the only chaos force, they'll likely get similar rules coverage to what the combined (non-DG) legions got in Faith and Fury, though they may split it with Grey Knights.


It doesn't say that at all. It says each book will be accompanied by an epic champion. It certainly doesn't say that's all you're getting. It may be the case, but you are still making an assumption.


Gotta agree here, it doesn’t make it seem like that’s all, just that each will be getting one.
All these boxed sets that have been coming out for instance, they could have said they will ALL have a new character model which is true, but didn’t mean some boxes weren’t also containing new models.



Also the point of why would GW hold stuff back that was mentioned, I mean why not. Just because they said it’ll be a character each time that’s it? Book 6 has new kits let’s say, they’d tell us now? Three books before it comes out?
Bad business. They want to sell the now, not the later.

Not to say I think stuff is coming (I collect DA, I never get new stuff when I want it so we won’t there ).

But also, didn’t they say Christmas Day reveal for PA4? We shall see if it’s just a character or more..

This feels like it's getting into full on wishlisting territory. Whilst previous statements from GW havn't completely ruled out the possibility of more than just a character getting released, they've also given us absolutely no reason at all to suspect there'll be anything more than just that, as foy your bad business comment, bad business is not building hype for the release of a luxury product.

And what do you mean by "All these boxed sets", PA has so far had a grand total of 1 boxed set, which will successfully go down as the single most underwhelming boxed set release in GW history. Other than that, the only other boxed sets out recently have been the standard christmas battle forces that are out every year and the limited Sisters of Battle boxed set, none of which have anything remotely to do with PA.

Or maybe a non Marine faction should get a model and a supplement that pretends to be a campaign book.

Dark Angels have almost the same huge bloated range as all the other Marines plus all their myriad of stuff. So no IMO they don;t need new models more than all the actual full factions still waiting to have their basic range in plastic.

They DO need new rules but thats because they are suffer from the "curse" of having their own Codex and many feel that a Supplement is not good enough for them (unlike other First Founding chapters apparently)...

They could have updated all three Angels and Wolves Chapters when they released the Codex with a pdf. However instead the have relaeased pseudo-campaign to do this.

It's not ok for an army to be sat at the bottom of the results table indefinitely though. Like it or not they are a separate army to codex marines.

Might indeed be wishlisting, but it's not without precedent.

1. A Xmas Day reveal. Why do this? Why hype a reveal weeks before it's due just for a new book with one attached character? They could have just thrown it out there like they did Blood of Baal.
2. Last Xmas (and I believe the one before) had a surprise release (Gloomspite last year, with no leaks leading up to it).
3. This is book 4. We had a box for book 1, not for the next 2, perhaps it is time for another box release to tie in with the book.

If there is nothing really coming with this book (which could absolutely be the case, I'm not arguing that) it sure isn't doing them any favours with this 3 week hype delay for just a reveal, not even the book's release. people will be disappointed, and nobody wants to crap on people's parade Xmas day

I don't expect any more new models outside of a character, but that doesn't mean that there won't be a box set with filler models alongside the character(s) to promote the storyline. Neither DA or GK have a battleforce or start collecting set, that could be for a reason.

edit: And to really throw some fuel on the fire, an early rumour stated that DA will be fighting an Imperial faction in an upcoming box (could be BS for sure). But what if the GK stumble on a Fallen while investigating this psychic development near Prospero. What if they learn about Luther and his escape? What would the DA do to silence this reveal? Could be a real change in the dynamic (I am about 1% convinced about this btw, just throwing it out there)

I would have hopped you two would have had a better grasp of that narative than this nonsense. They were losing the battle with the Thousand Sons (because GW permenantly wants to keep the Phoenix Lords as useless, I mean they were ALL there and couldn't deal with a few Rubrics) and Ahriman was about to win, it was literally a last gasp attempt to win by turning 3 Rubrics back into Marines and then dumping them into the warp to get Ahriman to go chasing after them and leave the Ynnari alone. Makes a lot of sense in that respect.
I mean, yeah. I agree that is the REASON she did it. But you can't deny she probably enjoyed it and had a good laugh about it later.

Maybe, maybe not. At that point you're trying to infer something that the highly condensed text from the Gathering Storm just doesn't contain.

Any chance of PA for daemons or GSC in the next 3 books?


Maybe, if Vigilius is Ghazghull's next recruiting ground. The Imp vs GSC vs Orks part of the war there was the War of Beasts and the Space wolves were involved in that one.
I still think it'd be strange if we don't return to Armageddon for his return, another location the Space Wolves have some history.

So here's what I'm wondering - does anyone think that the Ritual of the Damned is Ahriman trying to undo the Rubric? Thanks to Yvraine in the Gathering Storm we know it's possible... but will it actually happen?
I'm actually thinking it's Magnus restoring Prospero back to how it was before the exterminatus happened. While they have reclaimed Prospero it's still a barren wasteland and in the Primarch book Magnus the Red he restores a half destroyed book using his psychic powers. This would open up a narrative reason for new units as buildings containing weapons and vehicles will be brought back from ruin.

They said PA would contain stuff for every faction so there should be (but whether that's anything significant, not so much)


Not neccessarily. They could be in PA7-???. Or has GW said 6th will be last?
