Hello all! The time for codex analysis is coming! But first, we need to do some list building. Because...that's fun right? Not to mention, I need to update my Nova Open list. Will I be going for a Gladius force? Not on short notice. However, I have plans for that type of list going forward. In the meantime, this looks fun. :)
Hello everyone! Hope everyone has been doing well! I'm here today to give ya'll some good news! While you have probably heard it already, for those that have not, here it is: on June 16th, we get a new Space Marine codex. Games Workshop has been going at a torrential pace with its codex releases. That's okay. Means we get new toys in an ever changing environment of beastly codices like the Eldar. Unfortunately, we don't have a standalone codex. And some of the pictures released of the codex is concerning (possibly no Crusader squads/LRC dedicated transports?), but we'll have to wait to see since the pictures were very limited.
Nevertheless, this is very good news, especially with Nova Open so close. I didn't go through with commissioning my Neophyte Land Speeder Storm squads, because I knew a codex was on the horizon and didn't want to invalidate my army before Nova. However, if it turns out that this archetype is still viable, I might still use it. With that being said, I think I'm leaning a little bit into another direction. I want to feed off of my previously Nova Open used Templarbubble and combo it with the Sisters of Battle (plus the Culexus Assassin since Nova is allowing 3 detachments). We'll see how the points spread works out, but I'm excited since I have the majority of these already painted. Anyway, I'll see you in about a week and we'll start digging into the new codex! :D
