Blood Angels: Updated Rumor Mill

So here's my updated Rumor Mill post for my boys in red. I think I have everything relevant here. If not, drop it down in the comments.

Shield of Baal is the first release for the campaign. There will be more. It comes in two hardback books in a slipcase.

Book 1, fluff details on the invasion:
• includes the invasion of the Cryptus System, called the shieldworlds of Baal.
• the Astra Militarum, Blood Angels and even the Sisters of Battle are mentioned here.

Book 2, rules:
•  6 Echoes of War scenarios
• Cities of Death expansion with 6 new missions
• Death from the Skies rules for aerial combat

Forces of Leviathan, a new detachment for Tyranids:
• New Warlord traits
• Datasheets for new units
• New formations

More rumors after the break.

I don't know if any other german WD readers noticed:

on page 20 of the current WD, where they talk about the various ways to benefit from the Toxicrene, some note is written in the bottom left corner (I'll translate):

"Shield of Baal: Leviathan ist ausschließlic in englischer Sprache erhältlich, aber damit du sofort mit dem Spielen loslegen kannst, haben wir hier die Regeln auf Deutsch abgedruckt."

"Shield of Baal: Leviathan is exclusively available in English, but for the purpose of playing immediatly we printed the rules in German here for you."

This is NOT an official graphic.

The campaign box HQ for Tyranids will be a Broodlord. I don't play Tyranids so not sure if that's good or not but there ya go.

Umm, wait a sec I might have gotten that mixed up with the Lictor. I don't play bugs so sorry if my names are off, but it's the thing with two big arm claws on a dreadnaught-sized base.

You'll get a Blood Angels named captain with an assault/jump squad of Death Company a squad of Terminators and a squad of Tactical Marines. The Tyranids will get the Lictor (big guy with claw arms on a 40mm base) and a pack of Termigants cc? And hormagaunts gunbugs? I don't play nids so if I got the names wrong sorry... heard it here first.

Oh.. and the Necrons will play a part in this campaign far as I've heard.

I was specifically told campaigns would be used to tie codexs together (i.e. Orks & Space Wolves) so expect this to be Blood Angels and Necrons fighting Tyranids together.

I keep getting questions about a Tyranids Codex release and here's some info.

• This is a model release no Tyranids codex.
• A Campaign book will be released and if I remember correctly it's called Leviathan.
• Blood Angels are still coming.
• There will be a starter set that contains BA and Tyranids. It will be similar to Storm Claw.
Hope to update Blood Angel rumors this week.

• The Blood Angels Codex briefly showed up on the Games Workshop mobile website. Cover featured what looked like a Sanguinary Guard surrounded by fire.

via Lords of War Gaming on Facebook: 10.11.2014
• Blood Angels Codex will be called Adeptus Astartes: Blood Angels. All future Codexes will use this same naming scheme.
• The Blood Angels Codex cover that is making the rounds is fake (I claim partial responsibility for this. See this post. –TH).

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212: 10.09.2014
• Blood Angels are indeed pegged for a mid-November release but there will be little or even no model releases at all.

via various sources: 10.09.2014
• New Mephiston in plastic. Huge, standing almost as tall as a terminator. Sword low across front in right arm. Left extented over the top with hand spread...individual fingers. Looks like he's lunging forward sweeping the blade in an uppercut. Cape blown about behind him. Model has skull and blood drop iconography all over. Aegis extends up like the cowl of the old figure but is much more recognisable as a psychic hood. Face is incredibly detailed. Fangs are visible.
• New Tycho in plastic. Death Company iconography with nipple armour. Carries a chainsword and signature combi-melta.
• New Corbulo in plastic wearing Sanguinary armour. Holding the Blood Chalice in two hands over his head as if in offering.
• New Blood Angels Terminators. Kit makes Terminators, Captain in Terminator Armour, Librarian in Terminator Armour, or new unit. Stormbolters are standard and not wrist mounted. Kit includes Power Axes, Power Fists, Power Sword, Force Sword, Heavy Flamer, Assault Cannon, new 2-handed Heavy Cannon, Banner. Also includes Librarian options (torso/tabard/shoulders/weapon), Captain options (combi-weapons), and a ton of bits.

• Blood Angels will be released at the end of the year.

• In the Dark Eldar Codex, the following typo was showing under data sheets: "Each Blood Angels Unit in this book..."

via Steve the Warboss: 09.26.2014
• Blood Angels released soon after Warhammer: The End Times Book 2
• The release slot will be used to replace old Space Marine kits with a realistic release window being between 4-5 weeks

• Attitude of Imperial authorities toward the Blood Angels worsens

via Larry Vela on Bell of Lost Souls: 07.14.2014
• Mephiston becomes a Lord of War
• Blood Angels gain access to the Storm Talon from Codex: Space Marines, but not the new tanks
• New "Sanguinary" Unit in Terminator Armour

• New Predator kit containing options for Baal, Destructor, and Annihilator. Also includes a new melt turret.
• New multi-kit box featuring Honour Guard/Blood Brothers. Blood Brothers survived as members of the Death Company and have turned back to normal Adeptus Astartes. They are like Vanguard Veterans but more Blood Angel-like and with different weapon options.

via anonymous source on Faeit 212: 05.10.14
• A few models have been reworked, use of vehicles, and weapons previously not in the codex will be added. A few Blood Angels models should appear before the codex is released.
