They are ridiculous and some are just borderline idiotic. What would be the point in taking your army to a tournament if you could just take Eldar and reroll EVERYTHING. Furthermore, they're not Universal Special Rules. They're army rules. A UNIVERSAL Special Rule is... Wait for it... UNIVERSAL. Everyone could potentially use it.

I'm not calling you an idiot, I'm saying that whoever came up with those rumours is foolish and the person that sent them to you is either joking or I can see why they would not want to be named.

You can't tell me you think those rumours are true.

at this point in time , I do not believe any of the 6th edition rumours , the only rumours i believe are the chaos rumours. all the 6th edition rumours just seem fake to me , but that won't stop me posting more rumours for others to see.

Post them all you want, just don't expect people to not criticise them.

well originally when I posted them people commented on what they liked and disliked about them , I hope that future rumours will make the same thing happen again.

I wouldn't mind the ally thing. It would be interesting to see how that would work with two different Space Marine Legions (for example lets say; Dark Angels and Blood Angels?; or Grey Knights and Salamanders?; or Salamanders and Blood Angels?; or Salamanders and Raven Guard?) It would be very fun if they knew of a way of doing this at a low level matches ... like under 2000 points for competitions (other then playing doubles).

Also I keep hearing it but the more time passes I don't believe it ... Dark Angels vs Chaos Marines in the new starter set? It just doesn't sound right :shock: So even though I would be happy to see it, considering I want to start building Chaos Marines and fill in my Dark Angels I just don't think it is going to happen. Also the rumor about Dark Angels to get their codex update ... I don't see that happening either like what some have stated to me (would be nice to see if we can get a cool dread like the Blood Angels or the Iron Clad or the Space Wolves ... :().

I have already heard many rumours regarding the content of the new starter set box. even my store manager said that it is meant to be chaos vs dark angels.

but then again , I also heard that after 6th edition is released all battle forces will have codex's inside of them. making a battle forces around £80

but apparently you can still buy the codex on it own still.

Dark angels will probably be in the new starter at least, due to the paint set. But against chaos? MEQ vs MEQ? Bah, boring! Make it dark eldar, necrons, nids (again), regular eldar or TAU! SOMETHING OTHER THEN POWER ARMOR! And yes, that cuts half the factions of 40k out.

A codex in each battleforce? Hoping I can buy a battleforce without a codex, lord forbid I start an army with two battleforces and a HQ.

Remember, if all the new Chaos rumours are true, its not just going to be MEQ vs MEQ. Chaos will have Daemons and Culists as well. (Well, according to the rumours)

Really now? Haven't heard that rumour. Could be interesting, cultists are a major part of chaos (out numbering the chaos marines by far) so seeing them return would be fun. PLUSS it gives players a great line of models to use as traitor imperial guard.
