New Grey Knight Codex out this month

Postby Generalissimo_Fred » Sat Aug 09, 2014 8:00 pm

That's right. Grey Knights are getting a new book, possibly digital only like Inquisition. It's due out by the end of August and the next White Dwarf has a teaser. The French have gotten their hands on the new dex. Inquisition stuff is out, all of it. You need the Inquisition digital codex to run them now. Here are the units.

[quote=Orchal 607598 7100925 null]A user of the main french warhammer forum (http://www.warhammer-forum.com/index.ph ... 21485&st=0) who bought the digital edition of the SW codex today reported that this new digital codex include a brand new army list builder app. But, what interest us, is that he also said that he was able to see in this new tool a different GK army list than the current one, maybe from the upcoming dex (due to a bug). Here is what he reported, of course i cannot tell you if this is 100% legit :

HQ

- Brother Captain (same point cost as before)
-- Grand Master
-- Melta bombs
--Digital weapons
-- Teleport Homer

New relics :
-- Master crafted
-- Bone Shard of Solor
-- The fury of Deimos
-- Cuirass of Sacrifice
-- The Soul Glaive
-- Domina Liber Daemonica

- Brother-Captain stern (less expensive than before, point drop = power weapon),

- BrotherHood Champion

- Librarian (lvl 2), (point deacrase = GK rhino)

TROOP

- Strike Squad, a little more expensive

ELITE

- Purifier Squad, a little more expensive than before

- Paladin Squad, suaqd of 3 for the cost of a 5 man vanilla terminator squad
-- Land raider as dedicated transport

- Dreadnought, a little more expensive

FAST ATTACK

- Stormraven,

HEAVY SUPPORT

More from Germany.

]Well having read some posts on other sites, the leak is true. But it is suspected to be very incomplete and missing things simply because the Space Wolf template can't hold all the GK data so things will be missed out. Though according to the posts, GKs haven't gone up in points. Rather they haven't changed. So maybe Psybolts are standard now hence no point drop?


via Waaaghschale translated from German Forums
http://waaaghgaming.de/informationen-zu ... y-knights/
For our english friends, I try to translate these information:

It is very likely that we will see the Codex some time soon.
The Interactive Edition of the Space Wolves Codex contains the Army Builder for the Grey Knights including points cost.

- Libby (Librarian?) much cheaper
- Terminators cheaper (2 points more than a Chaos Terminator, still Troops Choice)
- no new Units
- Inquisition no longer in the Codex
- Draigo Lord of War

There is more to read:
Techmarine is still in the Codex
Mordrak and Thawn are out, same for every entry without a modell

- Points cost of the Strike Squad is unchanged
- The number of heavy Weapons in a squad has not changed
- halberd costs 2 pts for all units, falchions 4, warding staff 5 and hammer 10
- The ranged weapons have been changed, flamer 5, psilencer 10, psycannon 15
- The close combat weapons for the terminators cost the same as for the non terminators but ranged weapons are 5 points more


via Voice of the Chaos Gods
GW made a BIG mistake. The "Army Builder" in the Codex Space Wolves Interactive Edition includes parts the of the coming Grey Knights Codex!
I have following informations:
-no new units
-Inquisition is gone
-Draigo is a Lord of War
-Terminators cheaper
-Librarian much cheaper[/quote]

Yeah, I liked having Coteaz and his Henchmen cohorts in my GK Army. :(

Hope they expand the Inquisition eCodex to allow you to take more than just the 3 Henchmen units. I have so many painted Henchmen models, it'll be a shame if I cannot even field half of them. :P

I'm going to play the crap out of the current GK book until the new rules come out. Then its off to MSU Striker Squads to fill in.


Thanks for the info

I find this at least somewhat hard to believe, simply because there are no new units, which means no new models, and that's out-of-character for GW's releases. They re-did many of the GK kits last time around, and added the dreadknights and stormravens. But, other than a new codex, what will they be selling us, based on this list? No new ICs. No new unit types. Paladins, Strikes, Interceptors and Termies are all new kits. Maybe they make a dedicated purifier kit - but I doubt it. Maybe they get a new GK custom dreadnought, like SW and BA have - but I'm not sure that would be a big seller.

This doesn't feel like their standard model. All other codexes have come with at least three new boxes (even when those boxes are as dumb as Logan on a sled). What's the new stuff they'll be selling?

Codex Inquisition had no new models right? and it used to be incorporated into the 5th edition GK codex. Sisters had no new models with their online codex either.

GW makes money because all those people with models (GK + Inq) from the most popular codex of 5th edition will need to buy TWO $49.50 codex's instead of one to play their army now.

You're right, but neither of those were actually released as a published book, they're only available as e-books, like supplements.

I know you're only forwarding what's been released on other sites, and I know what the source is reported to be, it just doesn't feel likely based on their past releases. But maybe they're going to shuffle GK off to the ebook-only land too.

And then after everyone has bought them they can do sisters, GKs and inquisition set so you have all three......

Maybe it's just the GK models I do have now, but I'm excited about this release. If the rumors are true the GK termies are going down to 33pts each. That's awesome. They also get a LR as a dedicated transport (objective secured) which doesn't use a heavy slot. The Dreadknight is dropping in points. A teleporting Dreadknight would be around 180ish points. That's a significant drop in points. These are rumors and well have to see the finished product, but I like what I'm hearing already.

Wow. So, no new models. Removal of Inquisition and Assassin units to two separate $20 extra buys. I think I got my old codex for $30, at the time. To get the rules for the same models is now $50 + $20 + $20. That's what, a 200% price increase over the last four years?
