Latest 40k Rumour Snippets

So January/February is definitely Dark Angels (following The "Yawn" Hobbit - both movie and game).

Let's just say that the 1st Legion's guilty secret isn't really a secret......they are bloody dull and taking a word and sticking "wing" on the end of it doesn't make them any more interesting.

The next one is a pit of a poisoned chalice. Black Templars are not going to get a re-done codex. Instead they are gettng a White Dwarf update over two issues no later than (northern) Summer 2013. Apparently this will see the removal of vows, with replacement by new Warlord traits. The mixed units structure will be re-jigged or replace.

So it seems for all intents and puposes Templars are going to be Black & White Marines.

Nice to see the lackeys of the corpse-god getting the same treatment as Chaos Allsorts.

  1. Hmmmm. Shame about the Black Templars. I only just recently bought an army second hand from a friend. Although they aren't exactly extensive in number (as far as I can see) vows certainly made (make)up a big part of the character of the BTs...
    I'm a "glass half full" kind of person, so I am not terribly positive about what this might mean. But who knows!
