6th Edition? Already?

Thanks to the time change and insomnia I noticed a nice post on Bell of Lost souls.  Tastytaste at Blood of Kittens apparently has the inside scoop and is being rather vague.  It would seem that 6th edition may be just over a year away. 

This upsets me for a couple of reasons.  Firstly just when codex's are getting a much needed update they will be an edition behind while the Space Marines get s fresh one off the bat. This once again means Chaos and Eldar may get a new codex just at the tail end of an edition........again.  Of course this could mean a fresh new Eldar codex in the early stages of a new edition. 

You can read the article on BOls.  The gist of it is 6th edition by August 2012 with a new boxed starter set that does not include marines, guard or a xenos.  Well that kind of eliminates basically everybody.  Unless they mean to have Sisters of Battle and Traitor Marines in the Starter set,  Or even Grey Knights and Daemons.  A very interesting proposition.

It is way to early to tell and I am going to feel like a chump if I am just perpetuating a false rumor.  Well nest time I will be covering my countdown to Adepticon.  I have 2 lists and me running one of them is dependent on getting 1850 points of Dark Eldar painted in 2 weeks.  Should be interesting. 

Also this coming Saturday is my tournament at Evolution Games in Lansing Michigan.  The Test of Khaine starts at 11 am for registration and dice roll at noon.  Speaking of tournaments, I would like to send congrats out to CSVinton of Dark Future Games for taking 2nd in MI40Ks tournament at Get Your Game On in Ann Arbor.  He also cinched first place in the painting department. 

Until next time..........

Blood Runs, Anger Rises, Death Wakes, War Calls!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Well, if Tasty is a right about this as he was about t5 Eternal Warrior GK Paladins ... oh, wait he was wrong. Nevermind.

  2. And note: he did not say no Space Marines in the box set, just not "warriors of Guillaume Robut" (or however you spell it). Could just be non-Ultramarines :)

    Yeah, I know, Space Marines are bad for your blood pressure...

  3. You make a good point. Thats all we need more Blood Angels or Space Wolves players. Of course This could mean some new Dark Angels. They are the most abused of all the Marine players. PLus due for a massive update.

    Granted not a bad thing if they cut back on marine codex's :-)

  4. Yea that damn T4 is so OPed......right Linde?

  5. T4 is ok Capt. Its all the other crap. As much as I hate Space Marines though they are pretty easy to kill. The lists are predictable and easy to counter when you are not using a list that was thrown together last second.......

    wait what am I doin? You almost had me you big troll you

  6. if it aint broke dont fix it
