Today Natfka posted up a set of rumours in relation to the possible return of the Demiurg (thats Squats for oldies like me) in the Tau Codex; I don't want to steal his thunder so you can read what he's compiled from various sources over on his blog Faeit 212. I thought I'd mention it following on from last Fridays Jokaero post.
These rumours feel right, with the return of the Jokareo and the post on GW's site last Friday high lighting their 'Specialist Range' of games.
I can see a move within the company to broaden their grasp by opening up avenues that have either been closed off in the past or left to stagnate. I think I'm right in saying Jervis Johnson has on more than one occasion, hinted at the possibility of the 'flawed concept' Squats being reborn as the Demiurg from Battlefleet Gothic.
It's a good move IMO, the explosion of the Blog community (credit where credit is due Ladies and Gents) has certainly helped to highlight the more obscure and forgotten corners of the 40k Verse, connect the hobbyists already familiar with those corners and generate new interest in exploring them.
I'd like to see the hardy artisans of space return to 40k in a more sensible guise and will keep a watch for further chatter.
