I doubt that the DE are gone. They did something like this in MechWarrior: Dark Age. The Spirit Cats (a faction) captured the homeworld of the Bannson's Raiders. (another faction) Anyway, it really wouldn't be fair to DE players.
it wasnt fair to the squats players when they were taking out. so i dont think gw doesnt have a prob wiht taking away ana rmy that isnt makin money like de (since not alot of ppl play them) and focsing more on somethign that is like necrons (unfortunatley)
Yeah, 4th is coming soon. They can't seem to make up their minds what kind of game they want people to be playing. In one edition they'll say "It's too character driven" and in the next they'll say "It's too assault driven". I bet when they start making the 5th edition book they'll be saying "It's just too shooty now". <_<
Can't wait till 4th ed personally. If they're going to tone down assault officially, or beef up shooting a bit, I'm going to have a lot of fun with my Iron Warriors. And I'm up for a challenge with my Wych Cult in the making (and my WE, and FE if they're ever completed... ), which should be quite interesting.
Woah! I thought I posted this...but I did it in the Dark Eldar forum. Then when I went to go check what people said it was gone. I said to myself, "Self, did you post that or were you a bit sloshed?" I guess it got moved!
Actually, you would think that the Dragon would be a big machine, because in the fluff it says that it gets techpreists sacreficed to it. It would need a way to control its power or else reduce its dinner to ashes.
Well, since the C'tan don't technically "eat" their prey the Dragon wouldn't have to worry about reducing them to ashes. The view I have on it is that the Dragon is a long-dormant, sedentary C'tan that doles out ancient technology from the age of the Necrontyr in exchange for worship and sacrifice. That is the Machine God, the source of most of the Adeptus Mechanicus's, and consequently the Imperium's, technology. A frightening thought...
Hey i heard about the new assault rules last year I tested them and my army sucked big time. (no wonder with my world eater army). Which is why I am adding some firepower in to the army.
I also heard from a friend of mine, that DE are going to live longer, with the dark city destroyed they with gather wherever they can and loot whatever they can. h34r:
what else do you expect from the DE, there is no govornment, it is a collection of organized crime, drugies, sado-masochist doctors, biker gangs, and zombies all with pointy ears. they dont need a home world. they will just take someone else's.
*cue web-way portal, out pop the DE...*
