With the new Grey Knight black box hitting stores, and the interesting additions (like Ordo Hereticus and Ordo Xenos inquisitors, Arco-flagellents)
What's going to happen to the good 'ol WitchHunters codex?
Here's what I think:
I think that when the GK codex hits stores, a new Sisters of Battle PDF codex will hit the GW site. All allies rules will be gone.
GW might also be lazy and not do anything other than FAQ away allies and possibly induction.
They MIGHT release a new PDF that has pages for inducted IG cut and pasted from the IG codex in it. I think that might be to challenging for them to handle.
they MIGHT release a new PDF without all of the new units that are included in the GK codex.... like crusaders, Arco-flagellents, Asassins, and inquisitors. Leaving only pure Sisters (and maybe IST's) in their wake. (this will make me very sad) all at current point costs.
If rumors are correct, and there is a test codex out there, MAYBE (and we're talking meaningful random mutation probabilities here) GW will actually UPDATE some units, and update unit costs for a temporary PDF codex a la Blood Angels.
I think Unicorns might shoot out of my hindquarters before this will really happen.
Right now I think I'd put my money mostly on two things:
1. GW FAQ's out allies. possibly also induction.
2. GW releases a stripped down Sisters only PDF, rivalling the old GK codex in it's bare-bonesedness.
