GW let his contract run out.

I guess they did not enjoy the greater awareness and satisfaction that came through a knowledgeable and charismatic host speaking to the company's virtues.

Actually according to the latest fluff he is dead, this is taken from his 1d4chan article.

"The author Gav Thorpe said in a recent interview that "the Lion is dead" which is at odds with fluff given in codices and Luther's own ravings, though that statement was not unequivocal, as the answer given in the interview was specifically with how 40k Dark Angels deal with various layers of revelation within the circles of the Chapter. So the Lion's "death at the hands of Horus" and that "Horus blew up Caliban" are the first thing that Dark Angels have to come to terms with, but eventually find out that they had been lied to and that knowledge is specifically withheld from them to let them be good space Marines "here and now" rather than thinking about the existential problems of the past. So the Lion's "death" is still as uncertain as ever.

( http://hwcdn.libsyn.com/p/4/c/e/4ce8f98c68676bdd/Ep_133_-_Legacy_of_Caliban_wGav_Thorpe.mp3?c_id=11000551&expiration=1456327494&hwt=dc63c5caa6e74be2ced10b4aae7b3964 ) (fast forward to 00:37:09)

The idea that the Lion is actually dead and gone is unfortunately backed up by "The Eye of Ezekiel" that suggests that the dying Lion gave Cypher a final important mission to complete before he died."


Well if so that's gonna piss off a tonne of players and it contradicts the general known fluff of the lion is asleep on the rock.


What any author says about the fluff is irrelevant to GW's marketing. If they decide to bring the Lion back they will. I doubt we will see him because he would likely be getting leaked already not because of anything Gav says.

I had a theory awhile ago that Cypher was actually a psychic manifestation of the Lion while his body was comatose.

Which explains why he pops up and disappears all over the place, cannot really be captured, has the Lions sword, and often seems to lead the DA on a merry chase where they end up where they would be most needed anyway.

No Hooded head? This Primaris Upgrade Packs are a little dissapointing. No chest pieces, just the same heads with a little variety... I prefer the old ones.

Couldn't the secrecy issue be resolved by politely but firmly telling the Indomitus crusade reinforcements they're a sucesssor chapter, and then any Dark Angels proper primaris can be made on their own terms?

The hoods are part of the tabard and the tabards were a symbol of being inducted into the mysteries of the Chapter at large.

It's a big deal that Zakariah even has one given the intimation that the Dark Angels don't trust the Primaris.

Cathapractii and Tartaros for blood angels! That means we'll receive Deathwing Cathapractii and Tartaros?

Please GW, let me play my 15 Tartaros as Tartaros!

If anyone should have TarTaros or Cataphractii armor it is Dark Angles. As the First Marine chapter, they have all the old-school stuff. They are also THE terminator chapter. One of the old codex's states that the current Dark Angels Chapter retained all of the terminator armor from the old Legion......so that's A LOT of suits.

I really can't see GW NOT giving DA Cata and Tarta.

Remember though, the iconic Terminators are the BA Terminators in Space Hulk.

Apparently, in the battle report in WD, Dark Angels grim resolve is rerolling 1s to hit in the shooting phase if they didn't move

This is similiar to what it did in 7th edition, so very likely it might be true, considering how many of the other codices thats out have mostly converted rules from 7th to 8th with some adjustmenst~

Yeah I saw a picture of the battle report where this was mentioned. I wonder how good it'll be though, as it's only useful for units that stand still. I'm not sure how useful this will be for bikes and terminators, but it might be useful for dreads and infantry.

It'll be okay for greenwing elements, and Deathwing and Ravenwing usually have their own gimmicks.
