40K RUMORS: Black Templars OTW

2 Minute Read
Apr 17 2011

So, latest word on everyone’s favorite space crusaders is that they are headed our way after the Necrons.  Here’s the latest:

Via Lord Castellan

So what do we think the next codexes are going to be?

Necron of course, then Templar, obviously, but what else is coming down the pipes? 6th edition in a few years? Personally I dont think we need a new rulebook so soon but ive heard the rumor mill.

…BT will be sooner. They already have models and artwork for the boxes and so forth. They will be before Sisters I can guarantee it.

…Seeing the models and artwork at the factory is pretty solid.

And a response via Harry:

Sculpts have been around for about 18 months. (and well worth a bit of saliva )

I honestly don’t know the order they will appear …


…. but if it helps, the order that I heard about them was: Grey Knights, Sisters, Black Templar.

Whilst I expect them to appear in this order …. This was a couple of years ago so anything could have happened in the development stages before release order was set in stone.

(Lord Castellan is a braver man than I … I certainly would not be risking my todger on the table with a guarantee of anything!)

~Hmm, the plot thickens, but this is starting to gel into a nice 2011-2012 pattern of Necron-Black-Templar-Sisters/Tau-6th Edition kind of vibe of late.  Get the full details on this topic in the BoLS Lounge here.  Have at it folks.
