Yeah, I heard that rumor, but then heard it got shot down. I'd be pretty surprised if it were true, since it would be generic marines vs. generic marines to get the most flexibility, which would effectively amount to one decent-sized discounted army rather than the more obvious model of pushing two different armies that are largely unplayable outside of starter games since they're so small: doesn't follow GW's model.

I expect honesty about models' conditions, thank you.

If I don't respond in a day or two, please check back, I've forgotten-sorry.

Yeah I know its so disappointing... I would just like an entry point into the Horus Heresy 30k system and not have to worry about the specifics of ordering everything from forgeworld... I'm gonna keep an ear out for anymore news about starting forces

The easy way in is that most marines are compatible in some form even if reorganized or not optimized. It's mostly armor variants (aesthetic), fancy vehicles, and characters, and the latter two can be proxied/converted if you don't like expensive resin. And that leaves the new army lists which, like 40k, are mostly only accessible through army books etc.

Yeah never take any rumour seriously until there are pictures.

I heard this a while ago but pretty sure it was someone wish-listing which then got taken out of context and got huge.

Man, I wish some of the crazy rumors of the "leaked" 40k 6th edition were true. IDK how much was scrapped or just wish-listing, but I had real hopes for 6th being another big jump instead of power weapon variety and the beginning of the end of FOC.

Yeah, it's fun to see speculation, but I don't believe anything 'til I see it.

I guess I am just a sucker for 2 Player battle boxes :) a good old friend of mine and I were talking 30k when he was in town a week or 2 back and I was hoping to have a way to get us both into war games again... Plus I really want iron hands 30k Farrus Manus and Marines. Ugh its just like even if it was a FG direct id consider it but trying to find people to play with and that are okay ordering forgeworld just its tough oh well... Maybe this is just me wish listing

IF they did come out with it I would for sure pick it up depending on what factions were involved and what it came with.
