Games Workshop has quietly retired a number of characters from the Astra Militarum Codex. What’s the physique rely at now?
By now you’ve most likely seen the information about Yarrick. GW principally mentioned “He’s gone. Probably. Maybe…” and even borrowed a principle Abe had about it was the Orks maintaining him alive by means of sheer perception. Anyhow, that received us questioning who else is lacking from the brand new codex — and if they’d replacements.
He’s truly been lacking for some time. On the “plus” aspect we additionally know the place he’s — within the assortment of Trazyn the Infinite. He’s additionally getting changed by his no-nonsense daughter Ursula Creed within the new guide.
So he’s technically gone however positively not forgotten. His legacy will reside on.
It’s onerous to say Creed and never point out his Colour Sergeant and right-hand man Jarran Kell. He didn’t received lacking a lot as he sacrificed himself in order that Creed might escape the thirteenth Black Crusade. He purchased his commander beneficial time. But everyone knows that in the end it simply wasn’t sufficient to save lots of Cadia. Regardless, he’s not within the codex.
This is one other unusual case of a personality that was basically killed off however whose legacy lives on. While Pask isn’t within the new Astra Militarum Codex, you possibly can nonetheless have a Tank Commander in your military. You may also improve varied tanks to have Tank Aces, too. So in an odd means he died in order that others might take his place and unfold his “rules” round.
This miniature is predicated off the Character from the Black Library novel Honourbound. It’s type of odd that she’s received a mannequin however they didn’t add her within the guide as she did beforehand have guidelines. Maybe as a result of it was a particular launch? I’m not completely positive and I don’t know if we’ve seen the final of Commissar Raine. If you do have the mannequin you possibly can at the least use her as a Commissar…so there’s that!
