Some very exciting rumors here. I've been saying all along that it would make sense for Flayed Ones to be fleet, giving them Furious Charge can only make them better.

Hoping though that they don't so away with the Heavy Destroyer, but I like the sound of those possible new Heavy choices.

Having different rod color choices would be nice, although I think Miniwargamer.com sells packs of different colored rods. The only problem would be matching the crystal on the Monolith.

If it is true that the Immortals are going on a 35MM base, that could present a problem for me if I start building them before the new Codex is released.

Decisions...decisions....

I know, I was going to start converting a bunch of Immortals. Although if you do it carefully, you can always pop them off the base later. That's what I've done with my WoC. Worst case scenario is you can cut the base off around the feet, and just makes sure you flock it well enough.

Pardon my mental lapse, but what the hell does "interpretation FoD" mean? He uses it 30 times.

Bah, no mental lapse. FoD or Fall of Damnos the Black Library book is where some of this is coming from. Take it all with salt, but I have heard a bunch of this repeated in numerous places.
