A round up from Bell of Lost Souls

Quote :
It's been a sleepy Friday folks. Onto our daily news.

Codex: CSM: The Chaos codex officially hit stores yesterday, and I say "Ding, Dong, Siren (and all minor psychic powers) is dead" Good riddance! The day we all never have to face another Siren-bomb army is a good day for the community. In the end, Lash is beatable, and is nowhere as broken as Siren was.

The codex itself is pretty much what we expected, and I like it overall. MUCH clearer for new players, and still has a good amount of variety (except the loss of plaguebearers, bloodletters, ect... which should be dealt with with next year's CODEX:Ruinous Powers). The best part is building your Chaos Lord doesn't feel so much like filling out a 1040 form.

Updated Necrons: While I was skeptical at first, the rumormill just wont die down on this and we keep getting little drips and drabs regarding the upgrading of Codex: Necrons (possibly in 08). The core rumors which have seemed to stick are:

* Replacement of WBB with Feel No Pain USR
* Increase in the Toughness of Warriors and Immortals
* Removal of Phase Out and Res Orbs

All in all, not a bad set of rumors there, as it would make the army easier to handle rules wise with FNP being much clearer mechanic that all the wierd situations WBB can cause (especially to newbies). The upping of the toughness combined with removing Phase Out and Res Orbs is probably a wash but makes Necrons viable for tournaments at last. The Bell will keep their ears to the ground to see how this stuff pans out.


40k 5th edition: This is the really hot gossip flying fast about the forums. Scuttlebutt says GW may be planing on updating the core rulebook sometime in 08. The "scheduled" 5 year plan would put it in 09, but several folks are hearing that GW may bump it up a year to deal with a host of rule issues the design studio really want to change to move the game forward. Sources also say to take a close look at the newer "Jervis" codices and compare them to early releases such as CODEX: Space Marines for subtle hints of what is coming down the pipe in the new 5th edition (say where did all the retinues go???)

The orc sprue pics look very similar to the old ones. The middle sprue is completely new looks like on the other two they combined the shooters with the arms and added a few new accesories.

The Avatar, although I like it better, if it is same scale as the other one it is just WAY to tall. Should have kept it about wraithlord height 4" or slightly bigger the FW one is 7" and just doesnt fit the armys sleekness imo.

A few things:

5th edition: They should at least come out with the codexes that NEED updates before moving on.

Deamonettes: They stopped looking sexy

Bloodletters: Where's the brass armor of Khorne?

All in all, a pretty good find, but the Forgeworld models for deamons are crap.

Chad: I agree completely

Nathan: Seem 5th is more of an update than an overhaul, shouldn't put too much of a delay in the production of new codex's.

Also, those aren't forgeworld demons, new plastics me thinks. I also imagine they will be getting rid of the 3+ save on bloodletters (they were broken as hell before). I also like the new demonettes, just not much of an improvement.

Daemons with corsets bounce

IMO they went a little tooo far with the "Orky" feel.

really? doesn't seem too much further than in the 3rd ed version.

Plus 2nd Ed was just silly with the "orkiness" although in a different way.

The Ork Trukk seems OT to me, but they prolly slapped on every sprue bit option.

Should have been more focused in my comments.
