Welcome to Librarium Online!
Saw these rumours up on Bell of Lost Souls today and no topic:This looks interesting, I think a few people expected the return of the Griffon, and the other 'old units' could refer to some of the Russ variants that disappeared in the last edition.Hi all, its pretty quiet today, but the following is reported regarding the upcoming IG codex.
-Return of the Griffon mortar carrier and other "old units"
-New weapon options for Sentinels and a sprue recut with the new options added.
-Sentinels are said to be split into 2 diffent FOC options based on weapon loadouts (basically heavier armed ones won't be able to scout)
-New Sanctioned Psykers
-New Ratling Snipers
-May 2nd release for the codex and other initial offering.
Two different types of Sentinel sounds interesting!
Not sure about the return of Ratlings, I know their unpopularity is due in part to old models but I expected when the rumours came out about sniper squads that they were replacing Ratlings.
New Sanctioned Psykers hopefully will be better than the last ones and tidying up the Sentinel kits doesnt sound like a bad idea either.
Currently play: 4000+ of Black Legion
Looks like some interesting changes! New Ratlings sound good. I don't play ratlings, but I hate the old models! It'll be interesting to see if any of these turn out to be true!...
im a bit of a purist myself, i hate rattlings and dont particularly like ogryns either !!!
however i do like the sentinal and Griffon , sounds cool

Needs more tank. Sealncer always want more tank!!! Increased viability for variants too!! More special characters!!! MAKE MY CODEX MAKE SENSE!!!!

Whether we can still expect to see this squad I don't know, I for one cerainly hope so!
If this is true, then GW is gonna make a lot of people very happy...
I'm still waiting for a sign that the HEAVY STUBBER becomes available to infantry squads... come on.... do it.... And since virtually every forgeworld squad has the option, maybe it's not that unrealistic?
GW, just copy and paste the phrase "... or a heavy stubber for +8 points" under all of the unit options...
Tyranids: 2500 pts
Imperial Guard: 1000 pts
Witch Hunters: 1000 pts
Ratlings would be teh suck. If they're going that far then I reckon we'll see Squats by Christmas.
how soon can we expect death korps models? I also heard they may get new unique rules is this true?
