No, but I did catch an interesting tidbit from my GW manger earlier. Apparently even GW customer service is advising people to download the WD codex from the internet. I just find it hilarious that even GW's public face is advocating downloading a PDF in face of the WD 'dex's unobtainability.

I dolt know, I think that they'd sell well. There's quite a few people who really want to play them, but can't because of the WD being hard to get and the expensive prices.

True. But they have had two years to do this now, so they might have gotten a lot of the work done already.


>>25261120
Yeah, me too. It's just baffling, when you think about it. They could have put it up for a small price and made a killing off of it. This would require no work on their part, but they haven't done it.

I see two possibilities:

1. GW is redesigning the codex and doesn't want to bother with something that's just going to be made obsolete.
2. GW is incompetent

I think I can guess which option most of /tg/ will pick.

That's what they were originally, then veterans got better in 4th edition and even better in 5th but Cruddace didn't see the connection and left Celestians the way they were in Witch Hunters. They need to have normal SoB stats with WS4 and maybe 2 attacks and have access to a list of weapons from which any Celestian can choose a weapon.

More like all the tools to be the 'No-Fun' army of 6th. The only thing that *may* cause Eldar to not age well, is if GW uses Tau as the basis for an obscene power-curve. And considering the fact Orks and Sisters are theoretically next on the chopping block.... that likely won't happen.

There definitely needs to be some way to return fire against a battlesuit popping out of total cover, firing all its guns with pinpoint accuracy, then jumping back into total cover before your turn.

I mean what the hell is happening in the game world here? Is it moving at light speed or some shit? It only works because the game is turn based. If it can shoot me there should be at least a split second where one of my units can shoot it. Even if I take an accuracy penalty or it gets a cover save, it should at least be possible.

Which makes me think... Would big E becoming a Chaos god necessarily be a bad thing? If he's using his supposed daemons to help his troops then he obviously still cares about his people. The Imperium backed up by an actual god with associated daemons would be a powerhouse.

>> No.25265317

>>25265255
Assuming he is still self aware, there is no inherent reason for him to become evil, the only reason the Chaos Gods are evil is because in the 41st Millenium the galaxy is shitty enough that bad emotions shine through the good. If the Emperor died and became a warp God, and if he retained his sentience than there is no reason why it wouldn't be a good thing for humanity.

If the Warp God Emperor is the god of the imperial value and not the emperor we know from the Great Crusade ... then he could be terrible too, just in a different way.

If imagine that The God-God Emperor and his band of merry faithful would eventually win such a war, but not without considerable cost. Only because you can't actually defeat a chaos god.

Malal was hatred. The Imperium isn't a symbol of progress, it's a decaying, self destructive behemoth fuelled by hatred. If anything the efforts of groups like the smurfs and the Ordo Xenos to defuse tensions with the Eldar is among the few bits of light that give the empire a shred of hope that the hatred can be overcome before Holy Terra turns into a demon world run by what the emperor ascended would be like if he's been affected by the corruption of the ecclesiarchy.

The main reason to say it wouldn't be a chaos god is that the empire, and by extension the corpse sitting on the golden throne (what the emperor was alive is unimportant, I'm talking from the perspective of the power of myths: this is what the ecclesiarchy wants to believe rather than what he is) is a representation of the stifling and self destructive excesses of too much order.
