Hey everyone, I've managed to get myself a very juicy rumour. Just got a text from a cousin of mine who is in Nottingham, more precisely Warhammer World, for the FW Open Day. Anyway tonight he saw Phil Kelly in Bugmans and took a chance at having a chat with him about all things 40k.

Phil was very reluctant to talk about anything new but discussed how they really do listen to the feedback they get via emails and forums and that some may be implemented.

The biggest thing he got out of Phil was that Dark Lances (and presumably the craftworld Bright Lances) will be going to AP 1 when 6th comes in. This has apparently come from the amount of feedback from DE players that their 'Dark Glances' just aren't cutting it. Apparently Blasters won't be getting the increase though as a way to counter Blasterborn spam.

Anyway, there you have it. Time to get that third Ravager going for me!

Hot DAMN! This would be awesome if it were true, but I will keep my skeptic's hat on in the meantime. How many pints down was old Kelly when this came about? Razz

I doubt he was drunk Razz

I've already given my cousin a list of DE related questions to ask the guys at FW, will hopefully have more to report tomorrow.

I let out a maniacal cackle upon reading this. Very nice, and a -very- good way of making those 25 points of DL actually seem useful.

Easy to justify the blasters not getting it fluff-wise too, the extra size of the dark lance would give more justification for taking dark lances in trueborn squads without affecting the more flexible role of blasters (more of them, assault weapons etc)

Oh, wow, that's a really good news! I'm tired of all these vehicles that keep to resiste against my dark lances!
I can't roll more than 2 when rolling on the damage chart! At least with AP 1 i can destroy a weapon... and i can destroy the tank piece by piece Razz

I'm really looking forward to the 6th edition!!! (Especially for my Eldar and their Bright Lances Razz Where i can't spam dark light like with my DE Razz)

I assume the voidlance and void mine would get the ap 1 as well, it would be a little funny otherwise. Laughing I mainly use dark lances for anti-tank, so my at would already be optimized for this. Cool

That's great if they do.

I just hope they dont nerf the venom like they did with the disintegrator. its the best anti-infantry platform DE have.

How will they change it to AP1?
They can only change Lance rule, which sorta fall into old rumour back then that showed Lances will never get negative modifier on damage chart.

Means that either Dark Lances and Blaster and Blast Pistol, or neither.

Simple - Errata to change it to ap 1 or based off the old rumors make DL Lance (2-3) and blasters etc only lance (1)

THIS was FAKE !!!!

Too much man , too much.

AP 1 Glances is all I Really need from the damn book plus maybe reserves manipulation , and tormentors and a good Vid mine and and and , but mainly just a Glance fix.

I feel like a kicked puppy.

Pain tokens for you sir

I'll keep clinging to hope of earlier rumor then. Lance removes table modifiers(no bonus for ap1, -1 for none ap1), so no -2 for glance, so they are like ap 1 that counts glances as pens. Very Happy I saw that rumor last fall, if its true in 6thE it would explain the 25pt lances.

Still a chance the rumor was real, and the april fool's joke was saying the rumor was an april fool's joke.
