    All I want is a points adjustment, I'm already considering building a new 40k army to replace them

    No new model, but you will get:

    DLC1: Dataslate Tycho. $20

    DLC2: Dataslate Death Company Tycho $25.

    So no new models, eh? Just a codex and some dataslates. Almost as bad as Grey knights.

    Wait, isn't this contrary to the idea of "Games Workshop is a Miniatures company, not a game company"?

    That makes more sense to me. I know GW's trying to squeeze blood from a stone with every release these days, but putting out a new codex and then trying to do two dataslates costing a combined $45 (an unheard of price for character dataslates, too), with them just being two versions of the same model who already has rules in the codex, would just be well past insane. It would be the official "jumping the shark" moment.

    I can understand if they don't make new models, because the Blood Angels already have a heck of a selection as it is, and they didn't exactly jump to make new Grey Knights unnecessarily. But take a character out of the book, then split him into two dataslates, charging people an extra $45? Yeah, not seeing that.

    As long as we buy it, they will sell it.

    That would be the "jumping the Carcharodons" moment since it's 40k.

    Actually "jumping the shark" is not applicable to the proposed circumstance, as what you're talking about is a purely economic development, whereas jumping the shark refers to an intellectual property losing all semblance of continuity and pride in itself in an absurd attempt to make itself relevant in a changing media marketplace. The eponymous circumstance being when the Fonze literally jumped over a shark on water skis to appeal to a more "extreme" crowd in the late 70s.

    In that regard, the Blood Angels jumped the shark in their last major codex update when they started dropping land raiders from orbit and running around with more nipple armor per capita than a Vegas dance review.

    Also wings on jump packs. Dear god.

    Also also the sanguinor.

    EDIT: Seriously, the sanguinor man. He doesn't even have a reason to exist, they didn't even bother writing any actual fluff, he just shows up and rassles a blood thirster for "reasons" and then ****s off to Brighton, or whatever. Maybe he's the flamboyantly gay member of the legion of the damned and the rest of the boys weren't secure enough in their manliness to walk around literally flaming and in his company, so he had to find a new gig. I don't know, nobody knows, because he's the worst thing ever.

    I love it. Great model, I don't know why I don't own one.
