That's the rumor going around. On one hand, genestealers suck, very badly, right now, but so do warriors, and nearly all medium sized models. One wound, slow, no save, lots of points for stealers, 3 wounds, low tough, low save, and way too many points for warriors.

If they didn't fix genestealers, i wouldn't be mad, as I have no fielded them in 12 years (I do own 60). I would be sad to see them go from a fluff perspective, as they have been around since I started in 1987.

The Dominatrix rumor, that right there, gives me butterflies.

There was another rumor up about a genestealer cult codex. I doubt they are going away but perhaps they are being moved to that smaller dex if that happens.

Unless they give us another troop choice that doesn't need synapse to replace them I can't see them being taken out though, that is an important niche.

Dom rumor? Never Heard about That before. Stealers have a Role. But a very Minor. 5 Stealer To add a broodlord and Make him Warlord. Hide them for whole Game. Other than That 2 x 20 in a Pod might work but thats it. I havent used them in years...

The rumour was that stealers would be removed from the Nid dex and added to a cult dex only. This would never happen. If a cult dex was released stealers would remain in both dexes. The cult dex is supposedly going to be released with hybrids, magus, patriarch and a rehash of the broodlord........very salty indeed. The rumour then mentions that later down the line a dom will be released as part of a larger apoc release......I want this to be true........dear god it must be true...........If not.........arghhhhhhhh

I saw this rumour pop up on another forum, apparently the source was a bit of a rumour troll for WHFB who was spreading a lot of false rumours, so this one definitely requires a lot of salt.

More rumblings for us. This bodes well. They adjust some point costs, add more tough to the carnifex (restore his T, W and save to where it should be), we are going to be sitting good.

I find that Skyblight Swarms makes players of all flavors cry, so I hope we get to keep it.

The Carnifex is in a decent spot. He doesn't need to be a catch-all monster. His dakka variant is pretty deadly as-is, especially in pairs. He's a tiny monster by any standards these days, so he should stay around 4-5 wounds. The 120mm bases usually get 6+. If we have different monsters for different roles, I'll be much happier than just having plug-and-play Carnifex(en...i...ii...es). Sorry to those who hoped to never have to buy another monster again, but I prefer variety.

If the trend since Codex: Necrons is an indicator - and I'm 100% confident it is - our next codex will be fine. Since that book was printed, every 40k codex since has had a similar format, and a much wider variety of viable options within. That's called internal balance. Those books all compete well against each other, with a touch of rock-paper-scissors too. Again, good. Recent major tournament results have seen a variety of winners, and a variety of different lists in top 16's. No one army is dominating anywhere.

Tau and Chaos are supposedly up next, with Tyranids close behind. It wouldn't surprise me to see Genestealers get their own Militarum Tempestus/Skitarii style book either.

I could imagine that, -IF- genestealer cults return, that they get their own mini-codex, similiar to what the harlequins got. Thus there would be no need for Genestealers to be in the regular codex anymore.

I rather prefer players on both sides of the table smiling, not one grinning and one crying.

Then again, maybe I'm weird.

Totally with you on that one, Vonny. Then again, I'm one of those people who takes positive delight in his tactical ineptitude. :)
