The rules leaks for Haemonculus covens is continuing an unsettling trend of bland Codices and much better Supplemental books. What gives?
I Don’t Believe in Coincidences…
They say three times makes a pattern.
First it was the generally ho-hum Ork codex followed by WAAAGH Ghazghkull.
Second came the Space Wolves codex followed by Champions of Fenris.
Third comes the Dark Eldar Codex, followed up by Haemonculus Covens.
Everyone is thinking it, so I’m gonna come out and say it…
Are the main codices being hamstrung to make us buy up the supplemental books?
When the supplemental books first started appearing they had fantastic appeal. The first of these was Iyanden (hey we are still waiting on those other craftworld Supplemental books…). It was fantastic, offering pages and pages of new original fluff on the craftworld, tons of paintschemes, and hobby centered items, then a page or so of rules and some warlord traits and relics. Truly a book with something for everyone.
