40K RUMORS: Blood Angels and More

2 Minute Read
Oct 10 2009

Well, well, well, some interesting things have been floating around the tubes over the last 24 hours boys and girls.

First this tidbit from B&C:

“-The BA ‘dex is DONE and complete already.

-New conversion kits similar to the ones made for the space wolves. These kits are said to be EXTRAORDINARY (I mean.. beautiful!), with a level of detail similar to that of the models in space hulk (or even better). (PS this seems quite certain, it has been confirmed by my local GW seller, who also stated some big news about BA may be revealed at the italian games day).

SOME informations about the rules

-The codex will allow the player to field a top notch assault army: assault squads will be a troop choice, with options similar to those of the new gray hunters in the SW dex: 2Xspecial weapons and no heavy weapons at all (of course). Sergents will be similar to those of the SM dex (more options: tunder hummer, LC and such).

– a psionic power called “vortex of blood”, or something like that, will give the caster a CC attacks bonus equal to the number of models in base contact (or even in combat radius?! but it would be too powerful..)

-New indipendent characters.

I can’t assure these rumors are true, of course. I just TRIED to translate them in english and posted them here.

Ah, date of release: march, after the tyrs.”


Followed by this delicious morsel from Warseer’s Harry:

“Blood Angels are only half the story. :)”

-Some take this to mean Dark Angels, or a return of the Angels of Death combo codex. Harry seems to indicate that an Angels of Death retread is not in the cards. Perhaps 2 stand alone back to back marine codices? Dark Angels, Templars… who can say? BoLS has been hearing a steady stream of chatter regarding 2 marine books getting back to back quick updates on the heels of Tyranids, with Blood Angels/Dark Angels coming up more often than not. Lounge thread here.
