Wow.

This is a REAL game changer. Vehicles (ALL vehicles) can charge. Sadly, it doesn't say how that works for transports - will you be able to charge a Rhino into an enemy unit and then disembark the passengers and fight with them? However that works, having a transport eat the overwatch instead of an infantry unit is pretty huge. That should be a massive boon for CC armies.

Hadn't thought of that approach. You'd have to be careful to keep space for the unit to get in to
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

I seriously doubt that a charging transport will be able to disembark troops who will then also get to charge.

But I like the words concerning the deff rollas.

I am pumped for my monster Ork walker list to be back in business.

Another nice one that's confirmed: transports are limited by their capacity (and keywords) only, so more than one unit can be in one. So you could, for example, have 2 squads of 5 and 2 seperate characters in a 12 capacity transport if they all have the correct keywords.

Yeah, thats what I assumed would be the case but great to get it confirmed!

Interesting! Pistols no longer grant a bonus attack, instead you can fire it in your own shooting phase even while locked in melee. And rufus will like the changes to force weapons I think.

So you need to disembark at the start of your movement phase.  I wonder if assault vehicles get some bonus or if that is even a thing anymore. 

Also, the genestealer rules make for something great.  Finally genestealers return as an elite killing machine.  8" movement, 3+ to hit, 3 attacks base.  If you have more than 10 in the unit, they get FLurry of claws and all of them get a 4th attack.  And if you add a broodlord, they all get +1 to hit!  Add the 5+ invulnerable save and its incredible!

I like it. Genestealers SHOULD be scary, and they've been a joke for a loooong time.

So the same price as the two Heresy games (Calth & Prospero) : $150 in the USA.

The models in that box look quite ace, IMO. Seeing a bunch of those new Marines is nice, I like them a lot. And the Deathguard stuff is cool!

So the hardcover rule book is 35 pounds, which is also in the box - which means 60 pounds for the models and assorted stuff. Not bad value at all for over 50 models with that level of detail!
