Your eyes are not deceiving you! Look at the freebies GW put up today.
So this looks to be the start of an ever expanding page for Black Library. It would appear that the solution to releasing new units not in existing codices had to be solved.
We start off today with the Maleceptor and Toxicrene, and I would expect all the other Tyranid Wave 2 bugs to show up here as well.
GW is stuck in a limbo between Privateer Press’ “cards with every model” model that relies on Faction books only for completeness, and the addition of cool extras, and their own GW codex-centric model. The problem of course is that you can’t rely on people having to track down rules in old White Dwarfs months from now, and selling mandatory digital dataslates for new unknown models would almost certainly diminish sales.
So we get these. Praise the Omnissiah!
At long last – Games Workshop is giving away rules for free. I’m checking outside my window for flying pigs!
