Rumor + Rumor = Dark Eldar Goodies?

So I was doing what I do; surfing the high seas of Warhammer 40k forums and watching pron, I came across two rumors that when formed like Voltron might equal truth. As we know from Warseer and BoLS there is a fluffy reference in Planetstrike about “Khaine-worshipping Dark Eldar”. Suddenly I remembered a week before; a poster on Librarium Online heard from a GW store manager, that has a sister, that is dating Hank Edley of Adepticon, that knows a school mate of Phil Kelly of GW that said, “Dark Eldar Avatar and Harlequins are in the upcoming Codex”. Now, when I first read the rumor I did not put much stock into, because it came from the mouth of GW store manager, which are just as reliable as Amy Winehouse attempts at sobriety. With the little Planetstrike tidbit, that GW manager might not have his head that far up his ass after all. This is all highly speculative, still lets take a journey to Dark Eldar fantasy land or a second… Avatar how will it be different: Lance Weapon instead of Melta Sword? Immune to Poison? Give Fearless? Will the Avatar change the force organization of your some unit since that is GW flavor for 5th edition? Harlequins: Solitaire! killer assassin? Will GW just copy and paste from the Eldar codex or expand enough for some full Harlequin...

40k Douche Bag: Planet Money Grab

Hot off Imperial Guard  and Werewolves in Space news, now Planetstrike rumors from the great fountain of rumors, Warseer. After loathing Apocalypse, I was instantly skeptical about Planetstrike. I feared that GW was double dipping into the large scale battle salsa again. Much to my shock, as more and more information is filtered, this does not seem the case. Planetstrike is now turning out to be more like City Fight and less like Apocalypse. Still City Fight had the opposite problem as Apocalypse in being too small and really favoring certain units over other others. What Planet Strike is attempting, is to bridge both game expansions into something more people can jump into. Done properly it could be a welcome addition to 40k universe. If the rumors are correct you will not have to expand much, for your current roster to play Planetstrike. Attackers basically get more Elite slots and defenders get more Heavy slots, which is not as extreme as many formations in Apocalypse. My biggest fear still though is that Super Heavies and Flyers will make there way into the system, turning it into, “He who has the money with make everyone else miserable”. Luckily, judging from the leaked pictures there is not a Titan or Baneblade to be found anywhere. There is no sign of formations just assets, which are my favorite part of Apocalypse. If...

40k Douche Bag: Deployment is key to your redundancy

Over at BoLS is a post about deployment from everyone’s favorite artist/tactician, Thomas AKA Goat Boy. The post is fine as a topic. What is annoying is the pattern of Goatse’s army lists, chalk full of repetition and lack of originality. Systemic of competitive play currently. Let’s take a look at the list… HQ: Daemon Prince, Wings, Warptime, MoN HQ: Daemon Prince, Wings, Warptime, MoN Elites: Dreadnought, Multi-Melta Elites: Dreadnought, Multi-Melta Troops: 10 Plague Marines, Melta (2), Asp Champ, Combi-Melta, Powerfist, Rhino Troops: 10 Plague Marines, Melta (2), Asp Champ, Combi-Melta, Powerfist, Rhino Troops: 9 Plague Marines, Plasma Gun (2), Asp Champ, Plasma Pistol, Powerfist, Rhino Heavy: Deflier, Extra Close Combat Arms Heavy: Deflier, Extra Close Combat Arms Heavy: Deflier, Extra Close Combat Arms HQ: After getting a few lashings about lash armies, Goatse has gone to using the same Nurgle DPs for the last 10 CSM lists. Elites: I am sure he has heard about a few people running 6 walker lists for CSM this fits closely into that mold. Troops: Oh shocker here Plague Marines with Melta and more Melta, oh wait plasma the other power build. Heavy: He cannot break his streak of taking the same thing within each force organization. Do not get me wrong this is one tough army, it also happens to be flavor of the month. He is also trying to trick...

Best of 40k Internet: Billy Maze here with…Battlefoam?

I recently discovered this brand new product, is better then anything either Billy Maze or the poor Shamwow guy pedals. It is Battlefoam, you probably hate carrying your armies all around in cardboard boxes. What you hate more is cutting foam to fit those models. Battlefoam takes all the guess work out! Recently seen at Adepticon 09 and coming to a Local Gaming Store near you, you better get on the bandwagon and take a look for yourself at these “Patent Pending” products. To demonstrate this breakthrough in army moving management is Romeo (wonder what his childhood was like) from Battlefoam. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaOKpMnsas8 BUT there is more! Not only do they have state of the art foam, they have cutting edge Battle Bags! httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIXc3VvQkok I have never been a fan of battle bags as I use either a Gun Case or some plastic containers. This Battlefoam thing though has made me a believer and I cannot wait till my local stores get this stuff in! I am only concerned about anything that says it is patent pending… Mystery Train movie online Joe movie online Buy A Bugs Life...

What pretty rumors you have…

Hot off the Warseer/BoLS presses we got Space Wolf  rumors. I will use the creepy beauty of mimes to express my feelings about these rumors. Space Wolves Rumors begin……………………………………….NOW! -If drop pods are taken, the whole army must take them. -Bjorn the Fellhanded has AV14 on all sides, better stats. -There is some mad Wulfen character, who has his own personal drop pod. He can choose who he fights in combat, like a challenge in WFB. No-one else can fight him apart from the person he’s attacking, unless said model is killed, in which case his squad can then attack him. -All rules for Named Characters have been rebuffed – all of them can take terminator armour for +50 points. All Named Characters models are getting re-done, if not for the actual release then in subsequent releases. -Runic weapons I believe function as Relic blades, but with something else quite snazzy. -Wolf Guard (in terminator armour) with lightning claws rack up 6 attacks on the charge each. A very broken thing to do (think this ill be omitted from the final codex) is put them with Ragnar Blackmane, who gives them Fleet of foot and rending, though dont’ quote me on rending. -Individual Wolf Guard can replace squad leaders – all should look individual. -No model in the SW codex at all has the option to take a thunderhammer...
