I'd play them as an army in their own right with a Knight and some FW HH units to fill gaps. Not a huge fan/user of the Allies rules as they are rarely taken for fluff reasons.

Excited and annoyed in equal measure.

Excited for the return of Terminator Command Squads, and hopefully Librarians and Chaplains being good again (it's a complaint about their profile, not their powers/weapons).

Annoyed that it's not been that long since I paid out £35 for the last codex, and this one is set to be bigger and therefore more expensive...

I'm finding that just playing Heresy is solving a lot of these issues for me.

40k really seems to have shark jumped in some ways (I'm looking at you Eldar).

I like the increased pace of release but not when it means poorly designed rules and expensive books. I've been a marine player since 2nd ed, I don't need another 100 pages of recycled fluff.

Just thank your lucky stars your not an ork player. 100 pages and recycled stories, big pictures and nerfed rules.

Forge world rules books look like the best option to me

It's not a co-incidence that GW are rushing out a key release for before the end of their financial year (30 June) after another year of slack sales. It will give them the financial 'shot in the arm' they need prior to reporting back to the city come July.

I think the 7th ed core rules is actually the best it's ever been, tactical objectives have made the game much more fun too... Just the codex structure / unit rules seems to have gone a bit mad??

How do we fix it!!!

Rumblings from a few other sites suggest that the next campaign boxset will be Dark Angels
vs. Daemonkin campaign set after SM release which includes also other Imperial factions (such as forces of Mars) in the later parts as well as a "new" faction like Lost and the Damned which uses SM figures with chaos upgrade kits and with different painting schemes

New plastic Lord of Change is set to be released at the same time

There will be a new Daemon character for the campaign. This is one of the objectives for the DA to kill off before a mighty Lord of Change is summoned. The Character is a great wizard/psyker, consider it to be Ahriman but in daemon form.

it is not the alleged LOC model, this is in addition to the LOC

DA get a week of releases in late June or early July. After that it is indeed WHF for a while.

Primary campaign boxed release will have new limited edition HQ for both forces and after the campaign DA will get their codex and then it is time for Daemons and CSM to be updated to 7th.

Daemons and CSM will be fall release with Fantasy in between
