Hearing that new codexes for  Chaos space marines, Daemons, and ... wait for ... ready ... ok ...  here it is ... and Imperial guard are coming out next ... see, that was worth the wait. :icon_wink:

Rumors of a toughness 9 tank, death korp, and rough riders will be part of the IG book.

Oh and I heard a "balance patch" is coming out for 40K.  Been hearing 9th edition has been a fairly unbalanced edition, so sounds like GW is responding to that.  But will see.

In a weird way, 9th has probably been the most balanced 40k game GW has made in like 20 years.

The issue of course being that is a pretty staggering low bar. The problems are the same usual's. Power creep, older books becoming dated and some weird book synergies that no one bothered to double check. I pretty closely follow the competitive community and they've been amazed at how much better GW has been about things. There's multiple balance updates at regular intervals. FAQs and Errata coming out regularly and often soon after a book. Almost to often actually, cause it shows they could do a bit more playtesting on the books before releasing them.

But its actually a really interesting situation, and I hope its a good omen for the coming Old World.

I agree with Gankom.  It is my sense that GW's been keeping up with rule changes and such for 40K better than they once did.  And I can see how this would be more important to the competitive side of the hobby.

Although some folks complaining about the balance being off is legitimate, and I do think for GW it is about selling models anyway, there's nothing that says folks can't use the figures with their own choice of rules (I'm hoping Xeno Rampant is good) or adjust the 40K rules to have a better situation on their table tops.

But I digress off the idea of this thread being about "rumors", my apology.

New combat patrol box coming for Chaos Space Marines.

It will have a Dark Apostle and two Disciple, 10 Legionaires although upgrade sprue is questionable, 5 Havocs (heavy weapons), and a Hellbrute.

Not a bad starter set, although no need to get 2 boxes since then you'd get 2 Dark Apostles, unless ya needed one for two different chapters or some such.  The previous box was great, not sure this one is as good, but having basic items listed isn't a bad way to start off with a CSM army.  And 31% off buying these separately is a good deal.

Looks like a huge ... and expensive ... model.

They've revealed the new special model they put out to celebrate warhammer day, which is apparently also the 35th anniversary of 40k.
