I know it is a long time off, but it strikes me as rather likely that the Blood Angels will 'fill the gap' of plastics - Vindicator, Scout Bikes and Drop Pod, at start. Mayhap even a plastic Land Raider Crusader.

This seems unlikely to me. I heard blood angels were not even getting a 4th ed codex!

Now that's one mother of a stretch, to say they won't be getting a 4th edition Codex. They obviously will, just not anytime soon.

As for Drop Pods, they're rumored to be released a whole lot sooner, possibly alongside Codex: Dark Angels (albeit a late release).

Anyway, this thread is probably more appropriate in General then here, as there're no actual rumors to discuss.

I'm sure Blood Angels will get a 4th ed codex. as for filling the gap the crusader is fine, the bikes, likely not. I would imagine just a re-release box of the baal pred, a BA infantry sprue, a BA vehicle sprue, commander and assault kit.

This is neither news nor rumour. If you're asking a question put a '?' at the end of the title. Moving this to 40K General

It is unlikely, the BA will be getting a 4th ed codex. They will get a BT/DA style accessory sprue and a number of splash release boxed sets.

Vindicator and Drop Pod are planned to be a late release with the DA's, if not ready in time they will be released with Apocalypse. LRC is planned for Apocalypse, but may be transferred to the BA's. Scount bikes with the BA's are very possible, either for them, the SW's or a future supplement I can't say a whisper about yet :skull:.

Whoever told you that were most likely misinformed.. I am pretty sure the BA's are gelling an updated 4th Edition Codex. If not, they will get a 5th ed one, but GW doesn't want to lose the Chapter so far they will struggle to bring it back in the future.

I do not quite get what this thread wants in the news and rumour forum. Is it an attempt to start a rumour by speculating?

Anyway, the speculation seems very unlikely by what can be found in the Dark Angels rumour roundup.


- An all plastic Vindicator has been completed but unknown if it will be released with the Dark Angels.
- Rumours around plastic Drop pod but this like the Vindicator is more of a vague rumour.
(...)
- Clarification on Drop Pod rules.

And the plastic Landraider Crusader is available for some years:

Are you confusing it with the Baneblade?

So what are you pointing at?

a) No he is not attempting to start a rumour, stop having a go at people. There is nothing wrong with a bit of speculation. Admittedly it shouldn't have been in N+R, but still he wasn't trying to destabilise the Universe or anything. :p

b) True, the speculation (apart from the bikes bit) is pretty unlikely.

c) No, he means an all plastic LRC, anyone who has ever built one knows exactly what the metal bits are like :(. An all plastic one will be a godsend. Also, he wasn't confusing it for a Baneblade, unlike some people he knows exactly what he was talking about.
Steve

d) So, he is pointing at what plastics people would like to see with the BA's, and voicing his opinion of what he would like to see. This thread is a good healthy discussion, whcih will be fine until the "official" rumours start coming in and things like this can be proved or disproved.

My suggesting there would be a plastic version of the Tornado/Typhoon was once rejected - look now!

A plastic Vindicator seems inevitable. Plastic Scout bikes are unlikely, I admit. They may come with a complete rennovation of the bike series though. As for Drop Pods, that may be sooner. A Land Raider Crusader (complete plastic) seems unlikely to me too, but we'll see.

And of course there would be the customary BA plastic sprue, metal commanders and maybe a librarian or two (unlikely), along with the inevitable metal Death Company. The lack of possibilities for metal models seems to suggest more of a focus on plastics.

Space Wolves are so specialised there is unlikely to be releases appropriate to the general Marine range.

As it looks right now Blood Angels would have the new Metal Terminator Captain model:

BTs-Chaplain
DAs-Libby
BAs-Captain???

along with the inevitable metal Death Company.

Metal eh? It's early days, but let's just wait and see.. ;).

Maybe BLood Angels will get rules so that they all can have feel no pain, rending assault attacks, or +2 attacks on the charge if they pass a morale check every turn, think of it as "Acts of Rage". Certain items, units, characters give you "rage" points. But i hope to god death company has to be bought now pleez let that happen. Im sick of fighting free 10 man death companies

Yes, tell that to a terminator squad which just lost a trooper to the DC :rolleyes:

Back on topic, I would really like to see an artificier armour on the BA sprue... And perhaps a jump pack libby? Pretty please?

Hey its a good idea maybe we should share

artificer armor would be cool, maybe like words sculpted into the shoulder guards, or special legs like dantes

a new dante would be great a bit bulkier with a more streamlined axe, i hope all company comanders get gold armour that would be cool

I suspect that any new death company will probably be metal, like the BT sword brethren.

Any of those would completely ruin the B.A. . They already have a terrible reputation for cheesiness, which most 'true' B.A. players lament.

At the present incarnation, their ´dex is one of the oldest and most needing of a complete overhaul. But I hope Ork players get theirs first, as they´re desperately in need of it and all sorts of goodies that a new codex warrants.

How does an all-plastic Baal Pred sound?
Which could be done as part of the upgrade sprues.
