News: Codex: Black Legion Incoming
With the tidal wave of Codex: Space Marines rumors and pics floating around, GW is also pushing out their third supplement codex with the Black Legion codex.
"The Black Legion are among the most hated foes of the Imperium, vile traitors and fearsome warriors responsible for ten thousand years of terror and murder.
This Codex: Chaos Space Marines Supplement charts the history of the Legion, along with their Warmaster Abaddon, who stands poised to lead them to victory over the Imperium. Also inside you will find a showcase of Chaos Space Marine Citadel miniatures, presenting the warband colours and icons of those sworn to serve the Black Legion, supplemental rules that, in conjunction with Codex: Chaos Space Marines, allows you created a Black Legion force and a series of narrative missions that enable you to play through the Black Legion’s bloody history."
The iTunes version will be available first before the print copy. You can take a look here:
Black Legion on iTunes
The expected release date is August 17 with a price of $39.99 for a 157 page codex. Now, as with the previous supplement books it is important to note you're getting just a few pages of rules and the rest is fluff. The Black Legion (based on the preview pics) doesn't really seem different enough form what you can field out of the main Chaos Marine codex to justify a separate book. This definitely isn't a 'must buy', but if you're a Black Legion fan it might be for you.
What do you guys think so far? Is this a worthwhile supplement?
