Welcome to Librarium Online!
I overheard a conversation between a staff member and a manager at GW saying that Blood Angels are being removed! Apparently they appear no where in the new codex and their rules are not available as chapter deficiencies any more. Basically they are going to remove the Blood Angels items off the shelves and finally absorb them more into the general "codex marine" genre, before removing them all together.
The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

Being as the BAs are one of the founding legions the sudden dissappearence of the chapter would require a large fluff rewrite and then they'd just ***** off the BA players by suddenly getting rid of a long standing force.
IIRC there will be a few chapters not in the new codex, it's been said they will be getting their own along with others. I think that's what they were talking about.
I love rumors like this. There is no thought behind it, just regurgitation of a conversation that someone heard a part of. Oh by the way I heard from a friend of a friend who said that a friend of his told him that GW is having the World Eaters give up worshiping Khorne and will be worshiping Mork and Gork now isn't that totally awesome!!!!!

Maybe Hive Fleet Kraken is on the move again and is gonna get them like it got my beloved Squats.
For all you BA players out there,I share your pain.

Completely absurd. They probably will not be in the marine codex... same goes for space wolves, dark angels, white scars, templar ect.. They will be getting their own new book eventually. Until then they use their old book, or if you want you can make a "similar" force using the new traits. They are not going to be removed.
No, that is retarded, don't even consider that that could happen. They may not be in the new Codex that is true, but they will get their own Codex. White scars are in, as are black templars I think. SWs are not.
It is heresy to even think such a thing! I sincerely doubt that they would simply have a chapter up and dissapear, besides the Blood Angels are a popular army and GW would ***** a lot of people off, I would probably have to kill someone after all the time, money and effort I put into my BA army if they suddenly just said , "Nope no more Blood Angels, moo hoo ha ha!"
Tact is for people who give a damn. I'm not one of those people.
I tell you what,
I heard there's this guy, on this forum, that calls himself the same as the Greater Daemon of Tzeench, that believes everything he hears and shouts about it!
Ave Dominus Nox!
It sounds to me like GW is trying to make the Space Marines more unified.Right now the different Space Marine chapters are pretty much viewed as completely seperate armies.I think GW is trying to make them seem a little more like different branches of the same organisation.But I seriously doubt they'll be getting rid of any of the individual chapters.That would be pointless.
Not only pointless, but stupid.
"Yeah, lets just re-write 25 years of Warhammer 40,000 history and remove one of the founding chapters, and have that bloodthirster kill itself at the battle of the Emperors Gate! Yeah, and lets just wipe out a whole chapter which weve been talking about in fluff non stop!"
At least with the squats they had an excuse...
