    What would you like to see as a new race

    Hi i don't know whether this is the right place to start a thread like this (please don't kill me i'm only new) but i was thinking today what would make a new race for 40 k (and warhammer in that case but i'll repeat this thread in the warhammer portion of the forum).

    For this i suppose we could have a new space marine chapter or eldar craft world etc but i was thinking along the lines of a completely new race that has never been done before.

    It could be done, but it would be nothing new. It can't be assaulty because that what chaos,orks and 'nids do. It can't be shooty ,thats what IG,necrons and tau do. It can't specialise as that what the eldars do. Being a generalist is out of the question as thats the marines job.

    We already have all the bases covered so it would be a bit pointless.

    No, I would not like to see a new race. Not now anyway. Tau are still new in my opinion. A new race would get in the way of much needed updates and codexes for races such as eldar, dark eldar, and orks. These need to be re-done before GW even thinks of creating a new race.:sleep:

    Monkeys! with umm... sticks. yeah. but magic sticks. so they hit someone and it goes pow! blammo! w00t!

    Nah, a new race wouldn't a be a good idea right now due to the reasons given above. Though maybe in a few years time. Some sorta energy beings maybe? it'd need to different. and thats quite difficult now.
    Revenge is a dish best served with mayonnaise and those little cheesy things on sticks.

    Me too actually.. and it's been confirmed, but GW suddenly decided to update to 4th edition halfway through releasing the inquisition codicies, so they've been put on the back shelf for a bit.

    They're mentioned in so many books though, it'll be silly if GW never does them.

    i'd like to see a ninja kind of race where they have new special rules to be extra sneaky. You know lots of expensive ninja jumping all over the place. Harlequins almost fit this criteria if they weren't coloured like clowns.
    Check out my Codex: Farmyard Animals here!

    If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.

    Harlequins aren't ninjas anyway. Sneaky isn't their thing. They are performers. And they are only colored like clowns if you wanted them to be. >.>

    Personally, if I ever wanted to see a new race, I would want the Jokaero. X3

    the Sneaky hidy crap is already taken up by catachans, isn't it?

    A new race wouldn't be a good idea, and I'm sure there have been countless threads already suggesting this (there was one when some people tried to create their own "LO" army, but it fizzled out after a few day..)

    What you guys are saying is quite true. Gamesworkshop could lookinto their past and bring back the squats (space dwarfs, does anyone remember them?) Maybe the topic should be changed slightly what new space marine chapters could be thought up ditto with the eldar craft worlds. One question i have been pondering is what new units could be added to space marine armies. Is there anything? i mean individual chapters can have differing units wolfen for space wolfes the death company for blood angels but could any units be added to a regualr sp[ace marine army?
