NEWS AND RUMOURS: Release the dogs!

Games Workshop have released a FAQ for the Space Marine codex. As far as I can see it answers none of the 'hot' topics that actually need resolving, such as Drop Pod doors, God of War, Vulkan and Sisters of Battle and Gate of Infinity. 9 out of 10 for speed of issue, 3 out of 10 for usefulness.

According to the latest White Dwarf, Space Marine casualty figures will be released on 21st February and will cost £12 for three figures. Handy for objective markers, perhaps.

Forge World
Forge World have come up with another release tied into their Vraks books. Click here to see pictures of the Hounds of Xaphan with Khornate Ogryn handler. I'm not totally convinced by these models but I'd like to see them in the flesh before I condemn them. The unit is a Fast Attack choice and has Fleet. Their profile is decidely average, though, so their tabletop viability is questionable. Hey ho, that's Forge World for ya.

Black Library
Black Library have announced a new line of publications entitled Space Marine Battles. I first saw a hint of this at Steve Parker's blog. You can follow the discussion on the Black Library forums here. It seems to be a series of books based upon famous battles like the battle for Rynn's World (involving the Crimson Fists). Do we really need a series of books solely dedicated to Space Marines? Aren't a big chunk of Black Library publications already covering Marines?
