More leaks from White Dwarf:
TRAITOR LEGIONS 'Nine is the magic number this month, as within this 136-page softback supplement to Codex Space Marines are army special rules, exclusive Detachments, Warlord Traits, Tactical Objectives and Chaos Artefacts for each of the Traitor Legions - the nine legions who followed their Primarchs into treachery and heresy as they turned from the Emperor's light. (avail 10 Dec)

IMPERIAL AGENTS Loyal sons and daughters of the Imperium take heart, as whilst the Ruinous Powers may seek to be in ascendance as the year wanes, the God-Emperor's most righteous agents stalk the stars ready to enact his will.
Codex: Imperial Agents contains nine subfactions of the Imperial war-machine, from agents of the Inquisition to Wyrdvane Psykers of the Adeptus Astra Telepathica to reinforce your armies of the Imperium. After all, Deathwatch Kill Teams and Imperial Assassins are just as likely to be found working alongside regiments of the Astra MIlitarum or Space Marine strike forces as they are working by themselves, giving the Armies of the Imperium increased tactical choice and scope to conquer any foe.
Within this volume you'll find background and rules for using nine smaller factions alongside your existing armies of the Imperium, from the Grey Knight Terminator squads to the BATTLE SISTERS OF THE ADEPTA SORORITAS.

Time to get working on that Inquisition army I've always wanted to do...

...and GW has quickly confirmed it, hah:
This December, all is Dust… (and loads of new books)

Change is well and truly on it’s way folks.

This December sees the return of a demi-god to the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and nothing will be the same again.

Lets just take a moment to let that sink in, Magnus the Red is back. A Daemon Primarch from the Eye of Terror has returned to claim a vengeance denied to him for 10,000 years. We’re not 100% sure what his goals are for returning, but one thing’s for sure: we sure wouldn’t want to be the guys who burned his planet…

The model is not only incredibly detailed, it’s also absolutely huge: eye to single-eye with an Imperial Knight on the tabletop. And he’s not alone. A veritable legion of miniatures accompany him, some of whom you can see above – new Rubric Marines was perhaps to be expected, but there are also Terminators, disk-riding sorcerers and more. All these will be covered in the new Wrath of Magnus book, part II in the War Zone: Fenris saga.

But that’s not all,

December also sees more books on the way that all Chaos Space Marine and Imperial commanders should immediately be adding to their Gift Lists. We’ll have more details on all of these for you soon, but for the moment, here’s a tantalising glimpse into the covers of the future:

Was considering painting some miniatures from The Walking Dead: All Out War today but ended up playing it solo all day instead. It was my first go and I really enjoyed it. Played with Rick, Carl and Michonne and once I started getting to grips with it I was winning comfortably. Michonne was a killing machine by herself and I kept Rick and Carl close together in order to give Rick the blood ties buff which really helped me get some high rolls when attacking walkers. There seems to be so much scope for strategy, I'm really looking forward to playing against another player.

Mantic will be selling their crazy box tomorrow. Think I'll be going for the fantasy box but i might be tempted by the sci fi as well, depending on the price.

My solo game of The Walking Dead: All Out War ended rather abruptly today. While searching for supplies, Abraham uncovered a booby trap, which exploded, the sound of which attracted every zombie within ten inches to his position.

They ripped him limb from limb and the game was over.

Was talking to some lads at the gaming club, appears GWS have changed tact with pricing.

New Bloodbowl teams coming out at £20 a pop, much more inline with their competitors.
The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them in parliament.

Yup the Skaven team which released the same time as the Blood Bowl box was £20 or from 3rd party retailers I picked it up for £16 for the team.

Apparently all the Star Players and that are coming through Forgeworld though so that'll be a bit more expensive.

Of course - you can get the basic teams for less then they'll sting you for the better players. However generous they may appear, it's the same GW underneath.
Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

It's definitely not the same GW. Their ethos and openess in the past year has been remarkable and a complete u-turn. The amount of community stuff their doing at the moment is amazing.

That's impeccable sculpture.

I like the Tyranid influences.

That mechanicum model is just plain bonkers!

I've not learnt 40K but if the rumoured next edition comes out next year with simpler revised rules I'll definitely be playing.


Also previewed in the newest Warhammer TV video. New Tzeentch army for Age of Sigmar!

I don't know why they chose to separate WH Fantasy and 40k into different universes. It would've worked fine being set on a world on the outer edges of the 40k galaxy, surrounded by warp storms, far beyond the range of the Astronomican.
Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Argh so much cool stuff! :toot:

I'm really hoping for simpler rules for the next edition of 40K too. It's gotten very bloated over the years - I think if they can reduce the barrier of entry, 40K will grow bigly!

I also would like simpler rules. And a less insane amount of dice.

I really need to get back into 40k next year. I started getting back into it a while ago (and is even why I started this thread!) but I just lost the time for it.
Need to finish my Necron set and then maybe get back to my Space Marines.
