pretty much all the old kits are going up in price to be in line with new kit prices, 12.5% on average.

So the codex is already printed and the knights shown. The only bad thing about this all is that none of the knights have carapace weapons like their imperial counterparts which will be reflected in the rules.

This is just Knight kits, or 40k or even GW in general?

It's random, from what I have. Prices are in Euros, for a selected number of products. Few examples:
Scatbikes. 33->40
Silent Sisters. 33.5 ->35
IG Hydra. 44->45
Painting Handle. 6.5->8

yeah super rare doesn't mean it can't have a codex. I mean, Space Wolves full numbers have been estimated as being ~1500-2000 Marines. so 2500 of something in the galaxy... and that warrents it a codex. Meanwhile Black Templars, another chapter that proably at best was only a few thousand strong. warrented a codex.

if they warrent a codex then yeah chaos knights can get one too. GW has never done codices based on what was rare or not. otherwise we'd have a lost and the damned codex, which is the most common force of chaos you see (CSMs showing up is a rare and terrifying thing)


Think of the table top game as the Olympics/World Cup/Super Bowl of 40k. All the battles against cultists armed with bolt action rifles or feral orks with spears or Planetary Forces with lasguns and jeeps are long over. They got knocked off early. Now it's down to the Chaos Knights, the Marine Demi Companies, the Custodeus, the literal Eldar God of War etc.

Nothing but the best.


that and the table top game features fights that are going to be close 90% of the battles in the 40k universe are proably one sided curb stomps,mbuty we rarely hear about those, and never see them on the table top because they're boring


You obviously didn't see the games I played this weekend. Getting curb-stomped would have been preferable.

So far as I’m aware, the source is Sp******tz, who are of course known for such gems as ‘Slaanesh Has Been Squatted’, and ‘Abaddon is in BSF’.

There may be corroboration, but I’ve not seen it.

Almost the whole (already aging) Eldar plastic line went up. Seems like a good idea. Glad I'm done collecting GW stuff.

Looks like I'm back to buying near exclusively off of eBay again. Christ the cost of this stuff is almost making me consider picking up Team Yankee or Flames of War again if Battlefront hasn't totally sunk.

GW is ok, you can still get your 20-25% retailer discounts. I'm more concerned about FW... feth me, if they will raise their prices an extra 10% again.

Well, sadly Battlefront is rapidly becoming the "Games Workshop" of historical miniatures. If you mean the game, and then buy from PSC or some better manufacturer/company, then I'm with you (also, consider the Battlegroup series of games if you do WW2 - far superior and model-neutral).

I'm basically just waiting for Battlegroup: Northag to come out at this point, since I've played quite a bit of Fall of the Reich and enjoyed it tremendously..

This quote never makes sense to me as it's the same excuse every single time. If you ALWAYS have your 20-25% off then the price increase is exactly the same percentage as it is for the other people... YOUR cost still goes up. It's as meaningless as the "Well inflation goes up so GW has to raise prices!" (No they dont because the players INCOME hasnt gone up anywhere near inflation in 20 years)

GW want to beat last year /quarter profit increase it seem.

Also since people like to comparing kits price, they just up old kit's price so new kit price look more "reasonable" (lol)

The price will keep going up as long so their profit can reach "all time record high" every year/quarter.

Apart from quite a few mistakes in the article, it looks like Chaos Knights are going to get some wicked abilities. With the new update to Chaos, and their already impressive choice of units (when daemons included) I really expect them to be topping most tables in tournaments for the rest of the year. certainly there is going to be a clash between Imperium and Chaos for top dogs.
I'm sure people will love the one pre-game strategem that makes all S9+ weapons useless against the knight since it ignores all unmodified to wound rolls of 1-3, so basically your weapons all become S8 max.

So a knight with a permanent 4++ (mirroring Imperials) that also reduces any strength over 8 to 8. Who can get back up on a 4+ and then regain wounds as he mulches your guys. Try to null zone him and you auto perils. Yea these are going to help make new friendships

You can't do all that at once, as the 4++ and the "max 4+ to wound" are Iconoclast while the regen and resurrection are Infernal. You can run around at T9 as Infernal, though, which will put the hurt on plasma weapons.

Still, lots of fun options (up to 18 tap-dances at AP -3 for Iconclasts on the charge and Str7 D3 gatlings on the Infernals just to start!). I've been thinking of going full Blanche with some knights and Cawdor scrubs/militia/cultists for a while, now, and this might push me over the edge. Anyone know where to source appropriately scaled (massive) fish?

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Did they explain why all the Chaos knights got refitted with backjointed legs?

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
