Not!Space Hulk, anybody?
I have the 80s version! Sometimes I set up a board, put on my old LP of Duran Duran, and cry myself to sleep...
Ahhh... Space Hulk... How I love thee...
I remember I had some kind of version of it on my old Amiga 500 when I was about 4 or 5 or something. That was good times. So yes, I've been introduced to GRIMDARK at an early age.
Something just popped in my head: Can the Orks' beliefs be used against them?
An example: Someone impressive enough for the Orks (like Commissar Yarrick) comes on the battlefield with a big orky-looking contraption, and tells the Orks it's a gargant-killer cannon. If the Orks buy it (because hey, it's Yarrick), can it destroy their gargant?

Maybe, maybe not. The problem is that if you do manage to convice them you have a stupendous superweapon or something like that, it's not going to deter them. They're only going to take that as a challenge and fight even harder.
Of course: After all, when you have a gargant-killer weapon, you can only kill the gargant with it. Just like anti-fortress cannons.
I jsut bought Gaunts Ghosts Omnibi One and twoooooo
Here's a vaguely relevant pondering with the orky discussion happening: If a mekboy started working and ended up creating a replica of the golden throne, could he unite all the the orks in the galaxy into one massive WAAAAAAAAAGH!? I mean, the emperor acts as the guiding beacon for the astronomican, if I recall...
You know it's sad seen I see the Space Hulk's 100 buck price tag and think I'm getting a get deal because it has a bunch of Terminators in it.
Use to play IG, loved the 5th ed rules. But they got stolen so i have to dust off by old Tau army and then I lot the codex.
new codex soon methinks.
I've not heard anything about a new Tau 'dex...
Current rumours suggest Blood Angels are next, and that Dark Eldar are coming, but they probably won't turn up until every possible Space Marine chapter has a codex...
Fucking GW and their SPESS MAHREEN hard-ons.
Too be honest I don't mind that much; this way even though every other update is Space Marines the updates are still fairly frequent, in the good old days you got the core rulebook and a small (mostly psyker related) race specific book, there were no where near as many races. At least this way everyone will get an update at some point.
Also it might pave the way for some Chaos Space Marine chapter specific codexes, that would be awesome.
Now a Custodes Codex.
I think I could live with one of those, and waiting for my Tau dex to come out.
The question is why Blood Angles? There mainly a pure Codex Chapter, I can see the Black Templars and Space wolves having there own Codexs they don't follow the Codex
To be fair, a good chunk of why the Space Marines get GW's attention is that they sell.
If I still played this, I'd be interested in a viable Dark Eldar army list. The one I toyed with in high school was borderline unplayable.
Dark Eldar can still win battles but it's really hard and even then its a Curb-Stomp Battle for you or the other guy. 5th ed didn't help at all
Seriously, GW needs to concentrate on armies that need new codexes, like Necrons or Dark Eldar, not armies that already sell well and work fine, like every space marine chapter ever. They can't expect the Dark Eldar or Necrons to sell better on their own if they don't improve their playabilities and make them more interesting, so I find it stupid that they focus on armies that already are popular.
and do we really need MORE astartes? Just looking around the game tables it's like every other player runs a Marines army anyways.
Simply put, GW thinks profit > game balance. As long as updating an army will profit them, they will update it. By this I mean if an army is already profitable, they will try to milk it for money even more. By contrast, Dark Eldar and Necrons don't sell very well due to them not matching up to today's standards, discouraging players from starting one of these armies. I personally think GW would get a huge profit from balancing up either Necrons of Dark Eldar by comparison to what they have now. If they match up better on the board, it's obvious more players will choose them, and if GW is not planning to "squat" either the necrons or dark eldar, I find it pretty damn odd that they're sucking even more on space marine profits instead of trying to increase profits from currently underpowered armies.
I agree, focus more on the necrons and dark eldar, since The sons of Russ need more challengeling foes to fight...
