New Space Marine & Necron Codex to be revealed!


That’s right, Games Workshop announced that this coming Saturday they will reveal the new upcoming Space Marine & Necron Codex!

We’re ultra excited to see what these books contain and will be giving you the latest update for this.

The latest leaks that don’t involve the Space Marine & Necron Codex

Two new unit stats in the form of assembly instructions make it out into the wild, thanks for Reddit and Bolter and Chainsword.

Reddit gave us the Catacomb Command Barge and Annihilation Barge:

Battle-brother Matrindur over on the venerable Bolter & Chainsword site provided the updated stats for the Land Raider Crusader and Redeemer variants:

More peaks aside from the Space Marine & Necron Codex reveal

This week we got a new Rumour Engine. The long (oh-so-very-long) awaited announcement from ForgeWorld the next Horus Heresy Book, and some new themed dice for Heresy-era armies. A new Index Astartes was also teased for the next issue of White Dwarf.

The Rumour Engine gave us a look at a new arm-mounted bladed weapon:

ForgeWorld announced The Horus Heresy Book Nine: Crusade that details the Thramas Crusade and features the Dark Angels and the Night Lords.

Oh, they showed off a new mini for Lion El’Jonson, too:

ForgeWorld also announced new Legion-themed custom dice:

Some tweaks to make from the latest news

Okay, okay, technically this is both a Peak and a Tweak. Remember that the White Dwarf Issue 456 preview revealed a new Index Astartes article, which will give us new rules for the Silver Templars chapter of the Space Marines:

Stray Thoughts

The announcement of the new Horus Heresy book is, indeed, a Big Deal, but not for everyone (one of these days they’ll update the HH ruleset to 8th errr 9th Edition. The new Lion model is appropriately thematic. The Land Raider stats don’t change all that much. There’s some discrepancies with the multi-melta stats that don’t line up with other leaked stats. Now we’ll have to wait for the new Marine Codex before that’s settled. Competitive play is still in low-power mode, and the community is awaiting the new Marine Codex with a mix of anticipation and dread. Hopefully, we’ll start to see some actual leaks soon!
