New 6th edition rumors: Bad News

Postby coolbloo22 » Wed May 09, 2012 12:38 am

So first off the supposed 6th edition codex is a possible fake, and the new news do not look so good... What do you guys think about the changes? Good, bad, somewhere in between? Here's a link to the article. http://bloodofkittens.com/blog/2012/05/ ... nt-page-1/

People seem to confuse the term Codex and Core Rules.

Already two threads about it. It seemed a bit far fetched at first, but when the fluff stuff came up it was downright stupid. I'm sure there's better written twilight fanfiction then the fluff rumours, so I'm calling hoax on most of it. Some might be true due to lucky guessing and making sense, but otherwise no.

Marines allying with Xenos? NEVER!

Not saying this gives any weight to these rumors but considering the fluff in the last few codices this isn't that far out there.

The fluff rumour I read was orks invading the imperium in force, gork and mork fighting the emperor and one of them dying + the mortal shell of the emperor dying. Which basically sounds like the entire imperium will die out because interstellar travel will die out completely.

Blood Angels and...necrons? Is this some Matt Ward thing?

yeah, I dont really believe anything that says :/

I highly doubt after all the BL stuff that they'd change the background so much.... and Im sure, if Ultramarines started loving Tau then other marines wouldnt like them so much :P

At a time before right before the Horus Heresy the Emperor had intrusted Roboute Guilliman in the protection of one Xenos race that was completely immune the temptations of Chaos and would prove the ultimate key to the destruction of Chaos. The Horus Heresy ended such plans. Fast forward today with discovery of these lost correspondences, it is believed by the Ultramarines and others that the Tau are that lost race. So now instead of being charge with their destruction the Astartes are the Tau protectors.


How will GW explain this when the Tau came into being long after the Horus Heresy? (with the knowledge that the big E couldnt see past that event.)

I'm pretty sure that the Tau thing is just another plot armour to give that race a reason to not be already destroyed.

Concerning the rules? I don't play the games. So it's not like I really care about.
I don't fight. I win. Got it?
