Hot from Warseer

Quote :
Hot off the presses, we hear from Warseer and a couple of other sources on what may be in store for next summer.

Sources say GW is planning a "Codex: Orbital Assault" or something along those lines. It will focus on operations involving deep-striking, and other forms of high speed orbital to surface insertion (something oddly lacking in detail in Apocalypse).

That may also tie into some other rumors we've been hearing about potential releases for next summer that would make sense such as:

* Plastic Drop pods
* Plastic Thunderhawk (this one won't die down)
* Plastic IG Stormtroopers
* Plastic Valkyrie (this one seems the most unlikely)
* Ork Stormboys


The rules are supposed to not focus exclusively on specific races, but could give all new uses to things such as Swooping Hawks, Assault Marines, Gargoyles, and the like.

It is supposed to be a focused campaign with specific protagonists and antagonists who are currently unknown.

Plastic IG Stormtroopers makes sense. While I like the look of the latest try in the Kasrkin line, they still are a bugger to work with and the poses are dry.

I really want to do Mech Guard using Grenadiers as Troop choices, but I'm turned off by the Kasrkin models. I tried using SM Scouts, but eh Neutral I've always had my eye on the Elysians as they come with Carapace armour though..

why is his throne above? I think you are talking about a different Emperor.

The inquisition have been informed.

Marc: Elysians? Please, please, please do an army of them!

yeah, that would be sweet too Ryan.

This rumor is looking pretty official, should only be a matter of time before we see some more concrete details.

Contacts within GW, I'm sure a few of the warseer posters are GW employees, nothing drums up hype like these rumors. The nature of our hobby means that message boards and blogs are a good way to get the word out, for next to no money on behalf of the company.
