The Time of Ending

I finally got down to my local shop yesterday to pick up the new White Dwarf (I got the last copy!) and after reading through everything I have to say I am pretty excited for 7th Edition. It does seem like they are addressing a lot of the issues that the game has currently. The jury is still out on some areas (i.e. The Psyker Phase), but overall it looks to be pretty solid and a big improvement on what came before. I was surprised that no one has mentioned that they are advancing the timeline a bit in the new edition.

More after the break.

7th Edition Preview!

Games Workshop has put up a preview of the 7th Edition 40K trio of books on Apple's iBooks. While the preview is exactly 50 pages with a slick layout and absolutely stunning photography, there are no new spoilers to see as far as the rules are concerned. Unfortunately, it looks like they learned their lesson after the High Elves debacle.

More info and a link to the full PDF after the break.

No Updated Boxed Set for 7th Edition :(

Looks like there is no Blood Angels vs. Orks (or Astra Militarum vs. Eldar) Starter Set for 7th Edition. According to the new White Dwarf, it mentions that Dark Vengeance will be updated with the new mini rulebook. Here's a pic. I'm not happy about this, but I'm not surprised either. Here's to hoping that the rumors of a new Blood Angels Codex aren't BS.

New Blood Angels Codex Rumors!

I know it's been quite some time since I posted. I moved across the country to Round Rock, TX and I'm still getting settled. Anyway, though I haven't played 40K or unpacked any of my hobby stuff since moving here, I have been keeping my ear to the ground with 7th edition. Seems like the Blood Angels are the on the cover of the new 7th Edition Rulebook and rumors (or rumours if you prefer) are starting to come in on the Blood Angels Codex. Here's the latest from Natfka over on Faeit212:

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
-Blood Angel will get sometime after the new starter set a codex
-There will be no new super units
-The Predator gets a new box
-besides the Baal and the other two Variants a new Weapon option
-There will be a Multi Box with Honour Guard and something he called "Blood Brothers".

A new Predator seems... odd. I was hoping for a generic Space Marines Assault Squad to match the newly released Space Marines Tactical Squad and our own Terminator kit (the Space Hulk Blood Angels Terminators are still the best). Who knows what'll happen? I just hope they just don't mess with the Codex too much.
