Simply Warhammer has a leak video as well where he says he was told that Krieg will feature in the 9th codex and will be getting a 10th edition codex

https://youtu.be/BePpLrvJs8I

He says the source is reliable, but I don't know if anything he's passed on has been verified yet.

I'm not expecting Guard (or daemons after that) until after Leagues and World Eaters, both of which are officially stated as having 'months' of previews before release (or the release of the 'advance force' in the case of Leagues)

The Leagues of Votann are coming to Warhammer 40,000 later this year, but there are still a solid few months to go before we get a good look at their advance force.

We’ll be bringing you more updates on Codex: World Eaters and these murderous new miniatures over the next few months on Warhammer Community – so you can follow the Eightfold Path right up to release.

While both say 'few months,' obviously LoV was announced about a month before WE, so they're likely first.

Summer looks like Heresy (there's a long tail of releases after the box) and AoS (4 battletomes), so I think fall for LoV and WE, Slaves to Darkness is definitely announced as winter and if we're really lucky, Guard will sneak in before the end of the year. But I wouldn't be surprised by 2023. Daemons aren't even in sight yet, unless the plastic DP advertised for StD and CSM will 'count as' their one release alongside their codex.


Agreed. Though just to add. I think after LoV will be other stuff before WE.
They seem to be very concept stage almost (well sculpting point etc).
More like how they announced Sisters. Or Old World..
So I expect Guard before.

Back in the day prominent families would very often adopt to keep a line going.

In a techno-medieval society where things like belief in bloodlines are strong, and technology like IVF and cloning are around I would expect that making a Creed Jr (Yarrick Jr etc) would be fairly easy and desirable. Even if not, handing the name to the next person (like how Caeser became the word for Emperor in Rome, and then in Russia and Germany too) would make sense. You don't have time to tell the man the new commander's whole resume, so you say this is the new Pask and go from there.

I don't think World Eaters are in the early stages anymore. GW outright said so for Sisters, The Old World and just recently for Dawnbringer Cursades in AoS. Showing renders rather than anything tangible is more likely down to the codex being so far in the future that GW doesn't want to show models just yet, but feels obligated to announce the codex so World Eaters fans don't riot at the idea of being downgraded to a White Dwarf list.

I find the volume of model releases all of these are supposed to get interesting. Squats obviously need the release of their full roster similar to how Sisters were handled. World Eaters I expect to be the same, as we know between Death Guard and Thousand Sons how GW wants a legion codex to look like. And Guard seems to be getting quite a few kits as well. All that after a massive push to plasticize Horus Heresy and with those four battletomes also getting released in the second half of the year, of which we know at leasdt Slaves to Darkness gets more than just a clampack character with their book. That's a lot of stuff in not a whole lot of time. Makes me think we won't even see Guard this year and that the army may be a January release instead.

Again regarding the Sentinels: I just had the thought that it might also be that the new kit will really be the just the armored Sentinel (therefore the beefy look) while the old kit (with or without the roof) remains the Scout Sentinel. It would keep the balance between not completely invalidating the Sentinels in our collections while simultanously give an incentive to buy the new one. Especially if it has some new and better rules.

I like the sentinel and don’t see it as a kit that needs an upgrade but never mind, I hope the atillans aren’t coming back, that’s too much nostalgia. They were a cliche at the time and jarred with anyones army. Some standard looking rough riders would be lovely but I have just converted some deathkorps ones so not too bothered either way.

As for creed not mentioning kids, why would it need to? Just because they haven’t talked of them doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Chances are most “human” characters will have off spring.

You made me think for a second. What if the Orks used cloning? Took Yarrick's arm and cloned him with a bit of Ork thrown in to boot to make a new Bale Eye .....That would be Kunnin'

I present you, the the most misquoted part of all 40k lore:
Genetor Lukas Anzion in Codex Orks, 3rd edition wrote:[...] To the Ork, the only conceivable explanation for this is that the vehicle travels faster because it is red. However, as disturbing as it sounds, these 'facts' become true. Red Ork vehicles do travel perceptibly faster than those of other colors, even when all other design aspects are nominally the same. Similarly, many captured Ork weapons and items of equipment should not work, and indeed do not work unless wielded by an Ork. I believe this is linked to the strong psychic aura surrounding all Orkoids and have developed the Anzion Theorem of Orkoid Mechamorphic Resonant Kinetics. I theorise that many Ork inventions work because the Orks themselves think that they should work. The strong telekinetic abilities of the Ork's subconscious somehow ensures that the machinery or weaponry functions as desired.

Six year wait for a codex, a disappearing model line with no replacements in sight nor anything for that matter. And nothing more than baseless speculating from unknown sources telling you to believe them with nothing.

My head canon is that the Emperor's 'chaos gift' equivalent is resilience and unyielding will.

Yarrick, St Celestine, that Crimson Fist dude, Legion of the Damned, all have some version of 'get knocked down but I get up again'.

So a 200-300 year old Yarrick still chasing his white whale appeals to me.

I forget who wrote it but there was a really good Yarrick novella a few years back that turned Yarrick into Captain Ahab and it really worked. Ghaz is tougher, stronger and smarter (yes I went there) than Yarrick but Yarrick will never give up no matter how many men or worlds he must destroy in his quest.

Ghaz knows this, and admires it, and so lets Yarrick live as an 'ommie he respects.

And that is both grimdark and awesome.

So yeah bring on Lady Creed Jr and Pask's nephew and Trooper Slystalone Marbo IV esq, but give me the old man, held together by cyberware, spit and bad temper.

I'm with the others thinking this is sus, doesn't entirely jive with what we were told previously by other sources we now know to be reliable and accurate.

Mmm.. that only became the case when GW got rid of all the other kits and made an ingame reason for them being lazy bastards. It's a shame because the lore has so many cool regiments out there but it's a hard to create something unique with so few kits available.

A smart thing to do would be to create a standard kit similar to the old RT imperial guard and to have called that the new standard infantry kit alongside the Indomitus Crusade.

If GW decides to make new troop boxes, yay. If they don't, boo. Everyone, every fan of every faction, wants more options rather than less.

If true, the rumors feel like the same way GW is handling Eldar. A big update that updates a bunch of old stuff and gives us a few new things. It's big, but it's incomplete, and will leave room for more later on.

The painful part with Astra Militarum, as it was with Chaos Marines, is the fact that the wait for the new update was so long, and on top of a long wait, it doesn't sound like the complete update that people were hoping for.

Well, here's hoping for the next one, after 3-4 more updates for space marines.

As Kanluwen says, we have that. Personally I don't see how it would be desirable to lose the great variety of Guard to a novelty regiment any more than losing it to Cadians. It's the same loss either way and just makes the faction less interesting.

As I posted way earlier in this thread, yes I would love to see more regiments. It's the main interesting thing about the guard. The Cadians are boring. It's why I keep saying they should do away with them. But I've had Kanluwen up my ass saying the Cadians are here forever.

However, seeing as I don't see GW really giving us multiple options in one kit, then at least a fresh pattern of guard kit would be slightly more interesting than more Cadians.

Probably, which is made all the funnier by some of the Siege of Terra covers literally having that Cadian style armor on them. :-D

I'm 100% down for a refresh on the Cadian kit. We've got new art for them that would be aces.

Nah. I've just been saying that their style of gear is likely to stick around. We have a credible rumour of a more "veteran" Cadian kit that is supposed to be more ragged and battleworn.


However, seeing as I don't see GW really giving us multiple options in one kit, then at least a fresh pattern of guard kit would be slightly more interesting than more Cadians.
