    DLC1: Dataslate Tycho. $20

    DLC2: Dataslate Death Company Tycho $25.
    latest rumors 10-30-2014
    Multiple sources are now saying to look for:

    - Blood Angel, Tyranids & Necron Campaign
    - Limited boxed set will accompany the campaign modeled after the Stormclaw product
    - Box will include Ba vs Tyranid opposing forces led by:
    - Plastic Blood Angel Captain
    - Named Tyranid Character (Prime most commonly names, but Lictor or Broodlord possible)

    Look for this before the new year.
    [URL=""]Gary's[/URL] got two commenters saying this this 11-15-2014

    via e9832a04-6d07-11e4-9637-1fd442c0eb49 or conspiracynutt (was posted under both names)
    Ok, this is either going to go down like a lead balloon or I may have just found the holy grail of rumour farming!!!!

    So here goes, the next book being released for the campaign is....
    Shield of Baal:Exterminatus.

    Not only that but the Blood angels codex is coming with this funky little tidbit:
    Codex Blood Angels Sanguinary Guard Edition
    As well as:
    Blood Angels Data Cards(English)

    I know people will throw salt all over this, but I believe it is genuine and I have proof but I just don't want to give it away just yet in case Games Workshop patch that particular hole because it could be a potential gold mine for info.
    via Nightfury

    "The Sanguinary Guard edition will be similar to the wolfguard limited edition SW codex with counters and an artfolio.. should go up for preorders the last week in november if the timetable is correct along with the much anticipated LE boxed set that will almost certainly include the new tyranid broodlord i told you about a few weeks ago"
    So take that with some salt - as it comes from two commenter's on Faeit 212

    Blood angels get their codex next week. The cover is an assault marine wielding a plasma pistol and and chainsword, overall a nice looking cover.

    Blood Angels also get new datacards and dice, but more importantly blood angels get a new tactical squad with lots of options. Shoulder pads, helmets and blood angel symbols are everywhere. It looks like a full box of bits. Heavy Flamer is also in the box.

    Last but least there is a new Sanguinary Priest with with a extra machinery on the backpack, a blood chalice, and a nice looking chainsword.

    Blood Angels Codex Rules
    First the big stuff!
    Death Company is now elite as DC dreadnought
    Predator Baal is Heavy Support
    Librarian Dreadnought is HQ
    Mephiston is HQ and IC
    All units have now Furious Charge
    Only troop choices are Tactical squads and scouts.
    No new units. No Centurions and no talons.

    Unit Tweaks
    - Dante's Axe is +2S, AP2, mastercraft and NOT unwieldy, and he's Eternal Warrior
    - Special rules for Death Company: FC, Fearless, Relentless, FnP, Rage. They cannot reroll to wound if chaplain in the unit. Only Astorath gives them this ability.
    - No terminator armour for DC. But there are good news, Jump packs are now only +3 points. On the other hand their WS has been downgraded to 4.
    - No squadrons for Dreads. "Standard" dreads are now Elite, Furiosos and DC dreads too. Librarian dreads are HQ.
    - Tacticals As usual + new options. They can get anti-air missiles BTW.
    - No more Land Raider as dedicated transports for everybody, just for termies.
    - Vanguard Veterans cannot charge after Deep Strike
    - Sanguinor pretty the same but: gets only 4++, re-rolls to hit and wound in challenges
    - Sanguinary Priests costs about the same as a Wyvern, are HQ, and units they joins get +1WS and FnP. The are IC btw.

    Warlord Traits
    1. Warlord gets Rampage
    2. Warlord gets +1 I
    3. One Warlord's weapon gets mastercrafted
    4. Warlord gets Adamantium Will
    5. Warlord gets Descent of the Angels (Dante's trait)
    6. Warlord gets 12" fearless bubble

    Psychic Powers
    Primaris: Blessing. +D3 to A and I to psyker or target character at 12"
    1. Malediction. Target unit at 12" takes a Moral test with -2
    2. Blessing. Target unit at 18" gets Rage. If they had already that rule, they get +1A instead
    3. Blessing. Psyker and his unit get 5++
    4. Focussed witch fire. Target makes 2 T tests. Take one W for each failed test. If targed dies, place 5" blast with S4 and AP5.
    5. Beam.12" S8, AP1 Lance 6"Blessing. Targe infantry unit, moves 12" in the psychic phase. No charging after this movement.

    Fast Vehicles
    - Rhinos
    - Razorbacks
    - Baal Predators

    Mandatory: 1 HQ, 1 Elite, 2 Troops
    Optional: As usual, but 3 additioanl Elite (Total 4)
    Special rule: +1I when charging, all the army, any turn. I see in the pictures of the codex there is nothing coming after the termie kit. Librarian is separate from the kit.

    Sanguinary Priests
    Priests can't take Terminator Armor, but can take jump packs and bikes (standard points costs)
    Only one per slot, so max 2 per detachment, allowing for no other HQs
    Encarmine Weapons are; Sword is AP 3, master crafted, Glaive Ap 2 Str +1, master crafted, unwieldy
    FNP buff works on whatever squad the priest is in, i.e allied squads such as... Centurions.

    Character Info
    Two Versions of Tycho (seperate entries)
    Chaplains are HQ, although Lemartes is an Elite
    Techmarine is HQ as well. (Getting kind of crowded there in the HQ spot)
    Gabriel Seth is about the same cost, and Lord of War Same wargear, but rage and furious charge. Whilrlwind of gore changed to adding an additional attack for each 6 rolled to hit. His weapon is now called a Blood Reaver, str 8, sp 4 rending.
    Corbulo- HQ, a couple more points in cost now. Basically the same re-roll. 3 W. Buffs all BA within 6 inches (1 WS, 1 Ini), but standard FNP on himself.

    Mephiston: Lord of War.

    Behold the lord of death and tremble.

    It would be good, and one in the eye to librarian smurf tigirius, but I am not entirely convinced that this would happen.

    The resculpt rumour was something kicking around back when they got their WD codex.

    But new BA crack is always good to me.

    I just hope for some point drops.

    Provided these rumors are true, the sanguinary terminators sound almost like the wild "Blood Brothers" rumor at its face. I am guessing it has to be some sort of Space Hulk tie-in reference or something.

    I am in desperate need of some more sanguinary priests so having a plastic one sounds tasty (again, if true).

    The wheeled vehicle is very "WTF". However after the Taurox thing, I wouldn't put it past them.

    My bet is a Mephiston re sculpt. Dante could use a face lift too but he still has a dynamic pose. Mephy still holds a 2nd edition plasma pistol for goodness sakes.

    "Older plastic space Marine sprues eh?" Hmm here's hoping for a plastic Techmarine then and perhaps an Honour Guard squad box too. A redone Space Marine Commander box would be good too that had more of the options inc Termy armour.
    Either there is life in the universe more intelligent than us, or we are the most intelligent form of life in the universe. Either way, it's a worrying thought!

    Hopefully new bikes based on FW outriders!
