Space Marine: Action RPG

Today THQ has made it official. Relic, the makers of Dawn of War are embarking on the long awaited RPG based on the Ultra Marines Chapter. Besides the still in development  MMO, 40k is getting a top of the line game from a proven developer. I have great faith that Relic will delivery where Kuju did not with Fire Warrior. One word of warning, Relic is known for its RTSs not for anything else, so the real test will be can they translate the greatness of their other franchises into the same video game gold. Judging from this Battle Trailer I think the answer will be hell YES! For more visit IGN official sneak...

Baltimore Games Day 09

All the way in Maryland, Games Workshop little shindig known as Games Day was held in Baltimore last week. It is a chance for GW and fans to get together and embrace their love for all things Warhammer. This year was no exception. There was no great announcements, but there was some great models and terrain showcased at the event. Here is a sample of my favorites. The Ork Hulk has been making the rounds lately, last seen at Adepticon. I find the hulk super rad, but the guys that made it better got paid. They have way too much free time otherwise. The guys surrounded the hulk kinda reminded me of something… httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihsSmJNsDX8 If you want to see more fun stuff from Games Day there is a great site that has over a hundred pictures from this year event....

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...

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...
