Upcoming Mini-dex's: Grots, Genestealers, Kroot

Post  Lore Weaver on Mon Mar 18, 2013 11:19 am

Around the internets there have been whispers embedded in other rumours about "Mini-Dex's", designed to be allied contingents for certain armies. So far three mini-dex rumours have popped up, Kroot, Grots, and Genestealer Cults. (I also heard a whisper of a "Squat" minidex, Reecius mentioned it in a podcast, he may have been spit-balling though)

Given the speed lately at which rumours have been turning into reality, I imagine the sun could shine on this stuff as early as June. Given the speed at which codexes have been coming out (Tau are going to be available in-store on April 6th... ridiculous), we could have Eldar and Tyranids out both before November.

Cray-zee.

Since 6th dropped in July, we've had, Chaos Space Marines, Dark Angels, Chaos Daemons, and Tau all released.

If you remember Codex: Armageddon, it makes sense and I hope it goes. As far as genestealers go, they could have some sort of souped-up broodlord that would count as HQ.

Genestealers being scuttling and generally nimble troops, make them immune to overwatch and they'd be playable.

The rate at which gw has ramped things up is truly bizarre.. Awesome fornus of course.. But so odd.

Man i wish they direct a little extra attention to their other specialist games which are still loved.. And away from damn hobbit stuff.

Is that like "Awesome Possum", but using a non-rhyming nonsense word? :-)

"That was AWESOME FORNUS" :-)

I wonder if it will be done as a single text, or parceled out. I see some potential for them to solidify FW as 100% in and legit if they simply included some Minidexes like C:Imperial Navy and such.

Is that the story of the dude who goes around killing these ugly aliens, but it turns out the aliens he's killing are humans?

I sorta recognized it but didn't want to speak up for fear of being horribly wrong.

"The ballad of the flexible bullet" from skeleton crew.

It's about a writer going insane. If you don't have it, get it. Kings short stories/novellas are great stuff.
