However, to be fair, the actual codex may not really have much in it that differentiates them from generic marines. I lent mine to Warrior of Chaos so he could do some Dark Angels research (I think I've managed to 40k-taint him! Yay!) However, they've technically been in a separate codex all the way back to second (I still has all my stuffses!).
Not that this has anything to do with the rumors thread, and I don't know ANY birds at all . Well, I know one, but he won't return my contact attempts.
