Any Ork Rumors?
« on: January 10, 2014, 08:22:50 PM »
I'm just curious what the word is on Ork Codexes. (Codices? Anyways.) Several armies have gotten 2 updates since we've had our one. According to what I've heard, Imperial Guard and possibly one other are up for another codex next, and I still haven't heard anything about Orks. Now, to be fair, we're still not the worst codex in the game (Cough*BloodAngels*Cough) but it's getting a bit ridiculous. We're the only 4th edition Codex left! Most armies are 6th edition! Sure, we've gotten plenty of lovin' from Forge World, which is nice, but it's no substitute for a good base codex.
Super Mario 3D World is The. Best. Thing.

Can't say I've heard anything, but as soon as something does appear it's bound to show up in the News and Rumours board. As for being the last 4th edition codex remaining, it was very late 4th ed so practically 5th ed, plus GW don't tend to care for releasing new codicies just because it's been a while, remember how long it was between Dark Eldar and Necron releases.
Ahh Cammerz has typed himself into oblivion! :o Someone get him back xD

Last Ork related post on Faeit 212, was about Orks turning fully to plastic, and their Psykers getting Steroids.

In terms of when they're to be released, the first of those twolinks (which is the latest) points to a June release, but that could easily change.

A lot of things point to an Ork release along with or right after an Imperial Guard release, leading to a Warzone: Armageddon supplement of some sort.

I know I shouldn't really just link to another site, but I'm in lecture currently and I shouldn't really be trawling through all these pages to produce a condensed list.

Check out here for a discussion.

Bit skeptical as that discussion has been going since November 2012, and is just wishlisting as opposed to rumours. :/

In short, the answer to the original question is no.

Nearly all the Ork discussion that I've seen is wishlisting, so you'll just have to be patient :).

Looking at the four most recent posts on Faeit 212 with the "Ork" label....

Orks are due this June. Which is re-"confirmed" by a second post.

Dropping by 2pts but requiring wargear upgrades, Choppas having a small change around.

Orks and Blood Angels are going to have an "Epic Starter Set." Not sure if they mean "Epic" the spec-game, or just Epic as in its really good.....

Beyond that, I wouldn't know where to look for more solid rumours ^_^;;
