    New blood angels in '09 ???

    I heard a rumor that there will be another codex update & new models for the Blood Angels this year. Is this true, or is someone blowing smoke up my ass?

    If it is true, what will they be doing to them?

    I doubt it. They just got their update, which puts them right at the bottom of the list with Marines, Chaos and Orks. If they were to get anything, I couldn't see it being any more than another WD rules update. There's just so many other projects long overdue for attention!

    Well, I wouldn't bet any money on those rumors yet as still lots of things can change, but the outlook is promising:BoLS rumors

    Wasnt the last update to the BA codex just a nerfing of mephistons Transfixing Gaze...?

    Either way, I doubt this would be true. They have a pretty decent army list, while alot more expensive they have alot of unique goodies which is why I like them.

    yah, i wouldnt bet too much on a BA, BT, or even DA codex any time soon. These three chapters are already good in 5th, that they don't really require a fix yet. The ones mentioned by SmokWawelski are in need more of a newer codex then other SM chapters.

    Well, it's not quite that easy. The Blood Angels Update was done really badly and is full of errors, like e.g. our Rhino has no doors and no firing hatches. If we played by the letter, our Rhinos would be only moving boxes carrying a storm bolter. Space Wolves, on the other hand, can refer explicitly to the new Vanilla Codex for some wargear which is impossible to do for Blood Angels.

    In terms of waiting time I agree that Spaces Wolves, Demon Hunters etc. deserve to get a new Codex first, but I definitely wouldn't mind if Games Workshop decided to at least iron out all the errors in our Codex soon. It can't be that much work to update a PDF...

    the PDF codex

    I kind of like the PDF codex, because hey, free codex. But it doesn't really make Games Workshop enthusiastic about making updates or even giving the Blood Angels the much needed attention they deserve. The Blood Angels are one of the main armies in 40k. At least the Dark Angels & Black Templars have booster packs to customize the models. Seriously, if Games Workshop released a new codex & new models, I would seriously buy a whole new army, unless they do something stupid and totally nerf them or mess them up completely. What they have now works, but needs an update. The Blood Angels can't even take the new vehicles or models that the vanilla marines get.

    ME WANT NEW MODELS FOR THE BLOOD ANGELS!!!

    Well, I belong to those generals who don't feel the need for that. After all, Vanilla Marines deserve their own share of unique models as well. However, it would be nice if our Rhinos had access doors, our Drop Pods the same rules (including the Deathwind System) for calling in reserves, our Storm Shields allow the same saving roll etc. etc.

    Oh, and Brother Lord Dante as the Master of a Founding Chapter is not allowed to call for an orbital bombardment, although it is very obvious fluffwise that he is able to do so. Before we need any new units, we need to get the mistakes on the current ones fixed.
