So today I want to here what you all think. The new codex is coming and I want to know: What do you want to see & What do you think we will see? Two very different questions. I myself want to see some points reductions on certain units like Storm Troopers and Ogryns and Armored Sentinels and probably Commissars. Doctrines need a little reduction by a few points and so do sponson weapons, for whatever reason we have some of the most expensive ones. And Special characters, they are really expensive in most cases for what you get, especially since most are upgrades so you are also paying for the model you didn't bring
Now there is more than just playing with points. I really would like to see sentinels get some rules or options boost, they lack a little edge to them and this can be seen when compared to other walkers. The other one that needs some tending to is the Leman Russ, it has some issues with being just heavy and needs a few tweaks. Its not bad as is, but it lacks an edge when compared to other MBTs. Also speaking of vehicles, squadron special rules or upgrades would be an amazing thing. A one use ability or wargear option to give the group that little edge, since IG have squadrons across the board, this would encourage squadrons being taken over single models. Orders could use some tweaking and I would love to see more special orders, I am also excited to see how they treat IG "relics", hopefully have some special vox caster and other buff wargear. I really hope for updates to standards, the regimental one is ok, but there is no reason to take the platoon one (How many times has one wound for your PCS really made the difference). I WANT A SALAMANDER!!!!
Now what will we get? Most likely orders will be changed to some degree and SCs will get reworked but probably not much based on how the SM codex turned out. A salamander is not looking too likely, as GW is into bigger things right now. A new flyer is rumored to be coming (we needed one?), one that will be meh and overcosted so we will stick with vendettas like we always have. Some sort of CTs for different regiments is highly likely and maybe a reworking of the old doctrine system into this (Oh please god let me be able to make my own). Otherwise I don't see a huge revolutionary codex coming, more of a points and rules tweak to bring in line with 6th and a large plastic line based on recent releases and the new models getting put out.
So what do you want? What do you think will actually happen? My ears are open
