DAMMIT STEG YOU BEAT ME TO IT!!!!! AHHHH! I just saw the trailer on youtube and it was so awesome!

I was hoping it would go back to the older editions type of play but I understand this is more "new user friendly."

There’s been one thing we’ve been asked for more than anything else in the last three years (aside from the Lion riding a Thunderhawk): “Can my digital codex come bundled with my print version?” Well, Noble Hobbyist, yes. Yes it can. Whenever you buy a 9th edition codex, you’ll get the digital rules for that codex in the app for free.

from that community link..

Whoa!!

Don't get to hyped. Its a long running joke from before even Guillieman was released. Someone made a one line joke that the Lion would come back riding a plastic Thunderhawk, and since then they've inserted it everywhere.

Now I realize that Mids and Padre claimed I was using CGI to show them the infamous mounted crossbows (I blame it on their eyesight waning at this stage of life, like mine), but there's no way I conjured up a whole game with Midaski in front of Artoban, Padre, and 023 without multiple folks talking about such a great and momentous occasion at much length.  Padre was even wearing glasses used from the 17th century, and Padre even got out his flea scope from the same error. Nothing, no game, nada ... but ... maybe someday.  We were all creating and painting though. :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

Love the judicar and whatever it’s fluff is going to be. Love those necrons  as well. I think the necrons are gonna win. Period.
I’m feeling the draw to be pulled in again.  Damn GW and it’s toys.

I don't know ... those new Necrons are looking suspiciously like advanced Ossiarch Bonedudes. :icon_mrgreen:

And the Judicar ... his shoulder plate, sheesh, it looks suspiciously like a Stromrcrud trooper.  See, I new the Stormcrud dudes were really Chaos incarnate, not Sigmar's chosen.  And looks at this ... Stormcrud troopers, Judicars, hmmm ... Stormcrud Justicators!  All the Judicar needs now is a missile weapon, like maybe a lightning bow, or some such. :icon_rolleyes:

Post by: Gankom on May 24, 2020, 08:00:16 PM
Eh, not particularly. Big monsters and vehicles are certainly powerful but you can do without them. My guard army does pretty good and I only use one tank in it. Its very much you get what you pay for points wise. Big giant primarch is going to be powerful, but also a giant easy to shot target.

In fact right now some of the most powerful units are individual captains with jump packs because they can quickly move around the board and smash things.

Post by: Sig on May 25, 2020, 12:15:47 PM
The gravis armour the Judicar wears used the same size shoulderplates Aggressors wear, which are Terminator ones. If anything they look less ridiculous than the old models which were way out of proportion.

I am not a big fan of primaris marines, but I am liking the new range of sisters. I am a little sad that GW is retiring the Necron green rods, which was always iconic for them since their models were first introduced. I am sure there will be 3rd party bits people can get, but just feels like an end of an era you know?

It's been a while since I interacted with 40k in any way, my IG have very much taken a backseat to my fantasy efforts. I don't know much about the fluff surrounding 'Primaris' Space Marines (as with everything GW I am assuming simply bigger and better?) though I do feel that the scale is a little more realistic now.

I used to read that a Space Marine is 8ft tall etc. yet the old guys were generally just the same height as a puny guardsman, and termies were nowhere near their supposed stature, so in that respect the Primaris blokes seem to be living up to the legend a little better. I do also prefer the much more dynamic poses too. Not sure on those Call of Duty, skull facemask wearing reivers though... pass.

The cinematic trailer is, I must say, also pretty epic and the new sisters of battle are really cool too - just got my mitts on some last week and have some interesting plans in the making...  :roll:

Primaris Marines are Space Marines 2.0 that was worked on in secret for 10k years by the mechanicus and sanctioned by the emperor. After the Ultramarine Primarch comes back and talks to the Emperor they greenlight the project for deployment. So they're taller, tougher, stronger than the space marines you're familiar with. They're being slowly introduced as replacements in the current SM Chapters, usually put into reserve and scout companies.

That big Necron thing looks like something out war of the worlds
Considering the Dragon on Mars is a C'tan, it pretty much is.  :icon_wink:

Uh boy, no more Necron green tubes, bah! :icon_sad:
With the new Necron models, let's take a minute to appreciate the hero that carried the range all these years...

Good to see the write up, while at the same time the Terrain comments seem whiny.  But it is what it is, 9th is what folks will gravitate towards, regardless of what those who commented there have to say and speculate upon.  Unless the new edition really sucks.
Title: Re: Rumours and what's new to be expected of 9th Edition!
Post by: Gankom on May 29, 2020, 01:30:15 AM
Yeah those guys in the write up tends to look at things from a very competitive angle and that colours a lot of their commentary. I quite like them, but you know what you get when reading it. They're all pretty onboard the 9th train from what I see.

A lot of the grousing was actually about the terrain rules in 8th at the moment, and how they kinda don't get used much because of the ultimate focus on true line of sight.

I like terrain to have effect, since I know how much it really matters to me as a soldier and affect how I have to move and fight depending on it.

The sad thing with Kill Team, the one bad thing, is how little Terrain really affects you when it comes to protection and cover.

My boyz and I are still playing a few 8th ed games now and then, but haven't spent the $ on books.  I'm v.glad on this decision now, can't wait for 9th.

On the other side, my 2nd edition metal orks are starting to look smaller and smaller.  My old wartraks are the size of the treads on the new stuff.  Still want to resurrect my horde of Madboyz metals from back in the day.

... So they're taller, tougher, stronger than the space marines you're familiar with...


So yeah, basically just bigger and better  :-P

I bet all the SM players love that their armies are now basically obsolete! - I have done some reading up and know SM will remain in 9th ed but with Primaris 2.0 now available who do GW think they're kidding?...

Anyhu, I for one really hope the good ol' Imperial Guard get an update in the new edition. That plastic Cadian set has been around FOREVER and whilst I know it's still infinitely usable I'd love for them to get some more refined, dynamic looking minis, maybe even introduce plastic sets (or upgrades) for some of the much loved older armies and not just Cadians, thinking along the lines of (new) Catachan, Valhallan, Tallarn, Mordian etc.

I'm all for the underdog in 40K, why collect an army of superhuman beefcakes genetically bred for war in a world full of evil and hate, when you could admire the courage and bravery of the soft squidgy bloke with a gun!? Up the Imperial Guard I say!

Well it's better to let them slide gradually then drop them in a moments go, now people have time to buy new models get them up and running and then it's just LCM (life cycle management) that they disapear a bit more to the background in peoples playable armies, when that has happend enough then the drop won't be so impactfull and then you'll still have the option to play with them as legend models.

On the same day that the Warhammer 40,000 pre-orders go live, a new app will be launched alongside it, providing several cool features to help you, including a full matched play army builder. The new app will do a number of things to assist players with their games, but one of the most useful will be the ability to build army lists using the updated points values and Detachments.

44 inches?  Instead of 4 foot? Guess that means they'll being selling new sized battle boards. :icon_wink: :icon_lol:

It is sort of interesting they are having different size areas for different sized games, instead of having one sized area and adjusting deployment accordingly.

No comment on the above, eh?

So here's a video on this page currently that shows the guard getting trounced, followed by Sisters of Battle with Primus Space Marines vs. Necrons.

Wonder if that means Sisters of Battle will be included in the starter set.

From what I gather the Sisters wont be in the starter set, but they are one of the armies they're 'focusing' on. Along with Necrons and Marines. i'm wondering (and hoping) if that means Sisters might get a mini starter set, kind of like the ones they did for AoS and the last edition of 40k.

I'm not super sure how I feel how the table size thing. Mostly because I'm used to playing on whatever table is available. I don't think I've ever measured, except for a kill team game.

I was just thinking... GW never says the edition number on the boxes and codexes, yet I never hear about new players picking up the wrong codex or army book for whatever version they intend to play. Has anyone else? I mean, the hobby store I go to still has 7th ed codexes on the shelf...

I wonder why GW doesn't have the version number somewhere on the products.

Because they are fine with you playing whatever edition you like. They said as much in their 9th edition announcement on Warhammer Community. Some 40K players still play/prefer 7th edition, so thats probably why they still carry it (My brother was still playing 3rd edition long into 6th edition era! Mostly because he's a power gamer and came up with a deathstar list for 3rd and didn't want to change it). The models are not exclusive to 8/9 edition but some rules may need to be altered if you play an older edition for new units like Primaris Marines or these new spider like Necrons.

I get that, but imagine someone new to the hobby picks up the latest box set, and grabs a nearby army book. Doesn't realize till later he has the rulebook for one edition, and an army book for another. There is no way from looking at the products to know which goes with which if you weren't more into the hobby.

And some rule editions make certain units more powerful across different editions and points go along with that. So if you have a codex of an army which is great at close combat, and you pay a premium for units that excel at that, but buy a rulebook that makes close combat less effective, then you are overpaying.

Or some rules might conflict too, or use different terminology.

Title: Re: Rumours and what's new to be expected of 9th Edition!
Post by: Gankom on June 10, 2020, 02:54:07 PM
Usually when they go to a new edition they remove all the older books that don't work anymore. But they only do that if there's a big jump that nullifies the previous army books. Like when they moved to 8th edition from Fantasy they said upfront what was happening, and then stores sent back or got rid of all their 7th edition copies. So it cuts down on problems like that at least.

The bigger thing is probably (hopefully) the people at the stores point out the difference.

But its an interesting though. I don't think I've ever heard of anyone having a problem like that.

I certainly hope anyone joining the hobby would at least research or inquire at the store what to get before starting. Plus in this day and age, most people I know would look it up online before purchasing (usually to see if its cheaper on amazon). But your argument can be made by someone buying an age of sigmar rulebook, then an adeptus mechanicus army book, and Chaos space marine models. Hopefully the meatspace store has it all organized but unless the customer asks an employee, they may not know the difference. I put that burden on the customer, its their money thats being thrown around

True, but most first time explorers into the community don't usually go after whats powerful on the tabletop, they usually go after what looks cool. Its more fun to have models you think are cool on the tabletop than being a powergamer (at least when you start). But everyone gets their fun a different way. Some just like to paint, some like to play fun games, and some like to play competitively.

But its an interesting though. I don't think I've ever heard of anyone having a problem like that.
Same here. Considering how expensive everything is, you'd think people would research or at least ask before purchasing. Its hard to return model kits that have been glued together already.  :icon_wink:

I will say, most people I know did precisely zero research beyond asking the store guy or some there "this looks cool, is this good? What is this thing?"

I actually run most of the tutorial/get starting stuff at our local club. I think I'm going to message some of the newer players and ask them if they ever ran into things like that. It's a very interesting though, and I guess I can see independent stores holding onto the older books for longer.

You simply do not want to miss out on this amazing set, so it’s important to mention that, as it’s a special launch box to celebrate the new edition, it won’t be around forever.

I dont play 40k, so my experience only comes from watching batreps. I felt that overwatch was weird, because weapons that automatically hit are pretty good. On the other hand a unit that is good at range will feel equally bad, when everyone hits on 6's.

I think a -2 to shooting or something would feel more right for me, but maybe if I play I would know better.

I do like the idea of a final shooting when you are being charge, but because of the surprise/fast moment you get a penalty.

One of the issues with all these rules being posted is there isn't really a way to have a context until they put out the full rules.  Suspect there are heavy duty 40K players that will get this stuff, but for a less die hard 40Ker some of these items have limited meaning at best without being able to see the full rules.  Not that such is surprising, just commenting.

In the current format GW is providing these things, it makes me wonder why.  Are they trying to hype/promote the upcoming release? With it being so close, nothing a person says is likely going to impact whether or not an item is part of the rules, I hope its bee already playtested in its entirety, and the new system works with all these bits thrown in, in this case being thrown out to the internet realms.

@GP, most of the little rules blurbs are really just to build hype with the existing players. Give little peaks at how some common stuff is changing. Quite a few of these are things that have been suggested or talked about in the community for awhile now.

Indeed! While also trying to show that they've been listening to the community and their complaints/suggestions. Of course we'll have to wait for the new book is see how that actually turned out, but its looking pretty good so far.

Flyers do have an additional rule that they can be put anywhere on the field 9" away from enemy models
And with bringing in troops from your own board edge it has already been said that units can even pop up in combat that way!

I have model overload for IG. I want to collect every army they have! I would love to have an Armageddon Steel Legion and relive the epic 2nd and 3rd Wars of Armageddon. Then again these Cadian models are fantastic with excellent armor to showcase shoulder badges. Having a Catachan Kill Team like the squad from Predator would be awesome. I want to start a Valhallan army because their lore is fun and who wouldn't want to make Cain's regiment? Then again I could covert my own, and have Macharius lead the way!

Just too much to want and to collect there.  :blush:

Feeling like I'd like to buy this edition, but would really be bummed if coughing up the funds, and then find out in 6 months that it wasn't worth it.  There are so many items in my collection needing effort, that I may hold back until I see how this develops.  I like the idea of the lesser numbers of figures for their Patrol sized game, but if the results aren't good, then I'd be disappointed big time.

My suggestion, especially if your on the fence GP, is to wait a few weeks and see how it goes. I plan to pick up the box sets but that's more to collect models then anything to do with the edition. Two or three weeks gives time for everyone to look over the books and see how it is.

I agree. First investment is the app which I’ll play around with a lot and see what I can use from my collection. The AoS app costs $1.39 a month so I expect this one will be about the same. Totally worth it.
After that I’ll worry about models

I mostly have Orks and a smattering of Space Marines, and an army box of Tau that I got on sale many years ago. Although there is another starter set with some marines and Chaos figures, that latter is why I bought them at the time.  Not sure I like the Necrons or Primaris Marines that come in the new starter set ... so that isn't floating my boat either.

25th of July is what I hear also, but then to be available, pre-order up at 11th (2 weeks of pre-order time like they seems to with big releases).

Just gonna buy the core rules, I'm hesitant to get the box of the new space marines and Necrons.. I really need to push more on with getting Benthe her Salamanders battleready before getting more, and not sure I really wany yo dig in the mono pose figures to much also. And the mssus doesn't want me to start a new army also with the Necrons.. though I do like the look of thm I sort of agree and focus on my T'au and Death Guard first (together with getting those Salamanders done)

with the extra Command point per turn, means that over the standard* new edition game length of 5 battle rounds, you’ll have at least 17 in a game.

Much like they did for 8th Edition, GW has released the core rules for 9th for free download off the website.

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/07/02/free-core-rules-new-models-sighted/

These are just the core rules, pretty much what you need for the game. It likely doesn't include the more advanced stuff you'd find in the book. Like scenarios, campaign, likely the Crusade Mode (I haven't checked the file yet.).

Sweet. I'll have a look at them.

I kind of both like and dislike the hammerfall bunker. Seems almost a rip from Starcraft 2, but at the same times its very Imperial Fisty to have fortifications drop from the sky.

Same feelings here Feanor. I like the idea of it, and even like the StarCraft rip off because I would 100% paint it to look like Raynors Raiders, but at the same time it just doesn't do anything for me as a model.

My pleasure! I plan to do the same this evening and have a read through them. Goonhammer, one of the popular sites I follow, is planning to do a big release schedule over the next few weeks to really dive into it. I'm interested to see how the discussion goes. Most people seem fairly pleased with it. I was very interested to see that GW went out of their way to get a bunch of the big tournaments and competitive players to help playtest and design the rules.

Looks like there are some lore leaks too. Mostly about the battlefields present in this new edition. One that looks interesting is War Zone Laevenir. A Tyranid Splinter Fleet is invading a sector that is made up of Eldar Exodite maiden worlds. Several Craftworlds, Ynnari and Corsair forces are arriving to protect Exodite Eldar and unknown Xenos races. There's speculation that Eldar may get some new models or even Exodite or other xenos added to their list (like how the Dark Eldar have those lizard/snake soldiers).

What is the story with "accessing codexes with codes" :icon_question:

I would assume it means that when you buy the physical copy of the codex, it will come with a digital code or QR code printed inside. The app would then let you input or scan this code and access the digital version of the codex but only if you have previously purchased the physical copy?

You get the same things with Ordnance Survey maps in the UK.

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/07/13/missed-indomitus-well-make-you-one/

They are going on a Made to order at the same price! That will set off anyone trying to sell them at bonker prices.. (seen them at our dutch ebay variant Marktplaats going for 225-250 Euro)

The price shown on GW site through that link was 155 euros, which is about $175 U.S.

That seems reasonable for what is being provided in the set.

Don't know how much I see myself using this set.  It is tempting to pick it up just for the rule book, and maybe I would then use the Space Marines, although not sure how these "Primaris" variation fit into the game or the fluff for that matter.  Perhaps one of my nephews might get into the Necrons, yet I don't see myself going down that path, but never say never.

They do say that there are lots of copies being sent to local hobby stores, so maybe I will check with the one usually frequented.

Oops, I  included them in the count of 39 ... does that actually make 33 armies then?

And also included "The Edge of Silence" and "Urban Conquest" ... so that could be another error.  Meaning only 31?

And what are the "Elucidian Starstriders"?
Title: Re: Rumours and what's new to be expected of 9th Edition!
Post by: Gankom on July 14, 2020, 12:05:19 AM
Starstriders are a rogue trader group from the kill team game. You can use them in 40k kind of like allies, but I'd be hard pressed to call them an entire separate army when there's only 9 of them or something.

Also I take it back about the pre orders! Super happy to see them moving to made to order about everything got screwed up like that. The savings value in the box is pretty impressive, so everyone and their gran wanted one.

For what its worth, I've been hearing the app is still very buggy itself and they havn't actually used the right datacards in places...

Ragnar for example had all the old statlines from a previous edition, in two different locations.

so do you all think GW will re due Catachan plastics ??

That would be SO incredibly nice, but I don't see it for awhile. If they ever remember guard exists and updates them, I bet they'd start with a Cadian update. Although the latest special edition Catachan models they've put out have been both super popular, and pretty well done.

Hmm that's tricky GP. Pretty much everywhere I look around here is the Canadian equivalent of $170 for you. All the stores and online. I bet the retail places around you have marked it up a bit because of the big run on the box set and all the drama that happened. Ebay has generally marked the price way up but I havn't looked to hard there.

Well I bit the bullet so to speak.  Bought Indomitus, and from my local store that I buy most 40K stuff from anyway, as well as other stuff, and not a GW place, go local I always say.  It cost me $199, but shipping was free, so who is going to argue with that during covid 19.  It would still cost me $199 if I stopped by to pick it up at the store.

And I bought a Clone Wars boxed starter set, at the same time, ta da! :icon_mrgreen:

I forget what they are called, it has been too long.  Not sure I have much interest in the Necrons, but who knows now that I have them.

Not super sure how I feel about Deathwatch getting rolled into the main marine codex and then getting a smaller supplement later. On one hand, a lot more units available, on the other, feels like its going to lose a lot of the character and uniqueness.

With the new Catachan models I was thinking maybe they are going to replace with an updated model. I mean they are butt ugly models. The cadian still work well just old

Post by: Gankom on July 27, 2020, 03:31:28 PM
Sure enough, just as I expected they would, GW is releasing three 'levels' of new starter sets for 9th. Essentially a "Beginner, veteran, elite" level of boxes. They did this for 8th and AoS and honestly I think its a really good idea All of them come with rules, and various levels of models.

"Recruit Box"

(https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/S9nGrfHn9dUZQKK3.jpg)

Quote
The set includes a handful of miniatures, dice, range rulers, a mat, and a Recruit Manual featuring each unit’s datasheet and guidance to help you learn the basics of the game. It’s an excellent option for younger hobbyists.

"Elite Box"

(https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/3Pssvm6fGrORWPeR.jpg)

Quote


The Elite Edition is a fantastic option if you’re looking to begin or broaden your collection of Necrons and Space Marines while using the Elite Manual included in the set to learn the game at your own pace.

"Command Edition"

(https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/6lvq7fgtTVKLGirp.jpg)

Quote
The Command Edition is simply the best way to get started with Warhammer 40,000! Not only does it include all of the amazing models in the Elite Edition, it also boasts a fantastic fold-out, double-sided gaming board to fight your battles on, and a cracking selection of brand-new battlefield terrain. In short, it’s got everything you need to kickstart your Warhammer 40,000 journey with gusto and verve!

 

The set’s Command Manual features a narrative-driven set of six missions aimed at teaching you key aspects of the game. Once you’ve mastered these principles, a 184-page rulebook will provide you with everything you need to take your next steps towards becoming a hardened veteran of Warhammer 40,000 battlefields!

The main difference between the "command" box and the Indomitus boxset is command comes with scenery but fewer models. Nearly half.

Having those 3 sets provides for folks to enter into the hobby at their own level of commitment.

I like the scenery of the last box, hope they provide that as a separate kit.

So OldMarines (along with Chaos Marines) are supposed to get 2 wounds in the updated codex. They'll be re-working weapon profiles (adding St and AP to existing weapons) which may affect other factions as well.

I guess GW isn't trying to toss them out the airlock...yet.

good thing similair weapons in other factions will get thos buffs also.. otherwise those marines that were already hard to beat will only get harder to beat..

But I still suspect that with the next codex Space Marines (not the one coming in October but the one after that) may that be still n 9th or already 10th ed, that the lore will progress it so that all classic Marines will have walked the rubricon to become Primaris

Jokes aside, there's been some misinformation flying around the rumor mill because of "leaked" stat-sheets like the one above. Be careful when coming across stat-sheets for armies that do not have a slated codex release yet.

Weapon profile updates inbound:

Quote
However, it’s not just the Adeptus Astartes who will benefit from all of the shiny new rules found within the next codex. These changes will also be rolled out to all other factions that utilise the same wargear* – even xenos races such as the T’au Empire and Aeldari – at the same time the codex is launched!

* With updates to many more weapons due alongside future codexes for more exotic, army-specific wargear.

(https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/VK8a49OmsMfPsM3F.jpg)

Multi melta to 2 shots and extra damage output

Post by: Gankom on September 16, 2020, 10:32:18 PM
It doesn't, or at least my copy doesn't. These all look like things they're keeping to the army book.

Although honestly the Keyword system is already set up in the core book, so all they're doing is changing keywords and not actual rules. The reroll aura for example. It use to affect [faction], now it just affects [faction][core]. So using 2 keywords instead of 1. Its a fairly nice, simple fix to some of the issues.

Whoa! It's been well over two years since I last visited this site. It's good to be back!

From what I know, the Psychic Awakening books are still good for 9th (as is Vigilus, as long as your not doing the tournament thing), and I also understand there is one more book coming out. Here is what we have so far:

I – Psychic Awakening: Phoenix Rising (Craftworlds, Drukhari, Ynnari)

II – Psychic Awakening: Faith & Fury (Black Templars, Adeptus Astartes generic characters, Heretic Astartes)

III – Psychic Awakening: Blood of Baal (Blood Angels, Tyranids)

IV – Psychic Awakening: Ritual of the Damned (Thousand Sons, Dark Angels, Grey Knights)

V – Psychic Awakening: The Greater Good (T’au, Astra Militarum, Genestealer Cults)

VI – Psychic Awakening: Saga of the Beast (Space Wolves, Orks)

VII – Psychic Awakening: Engine War (Adeptus Mechanicus, Imperial Knights, Chaos Knights, Chaos Daemons)

VIII – Psychic Awakening: War of the Spider (Death Guard, Talons of the Emperor, Officio Assassinorum)

IX - Psychic Awakening: Pariah (Necrons, Inquisition)

Checking the above, did they get everybody except the Sisters of Battle? What else did I miss? Harlequins? I only own about 1/2 of these books, could have missed something . . .

VIII – Psychic Awakening: War of the Spider (Death Guard, Talons of the Emperor, Officio Assassinorum)

IX - Psychic Awakening: Pariah (Necrons, Inquisition)

Checking the above, did they get everybody except the Sisters of Battle? What else did I miss? Harlequins? I only own about 1/2 of these books, could have missed something . . .

Welcome back TexasYankee!

Sisters got their own codex in januari / februari
Harlequins got an update in WD
Necrons got about nothing in Pariah, but new codex coming in October as for Space Marines

Not sure what you mean by one more book coming.. not for Psychic Awakening series at least.. 9 is the magic number going with that in to 9th edition

Welcome back TexasYankee!


Thank you, sir!

For sisters, a lot of folks have codex's, I thought they'd get something a little extra like everyone else. :) Didn't know about the clown update in WD, thank you. Necrons got nothing in Pariah? Well, I hope their 'dex gives them a little more love.

As for all the new rules in 9th, I like most of them, but the BLAST rule seems a bit much. Imagine having 11 Orks and then being shot 24 times by a Wyvern . . . I think a more balanced approach would be a minimum # of shots PER DAMAGE DIE, say two if shooting a squad of 6 - 10, and then three if shooting 11 or more. That way a Wyvern would be guaranteed a minimum of eight shots, or 12 against aformentioned Orks.


Not sure what you mean by one more book coming.. not for Psychic Awakening series at least.. 9 is the magic number going with that in to 9th edition


Nine is the magic number . . . you think I would know that, since I play Thousand Sons . . . but damn if I didn't read somewhere there was going to be ten books . . .

Damn . . . it's good to be back!  :mrgreen:

Deathwatch also got a PA update in a codex, and it was a fairly lame copy paste job. The Sisters are kinda in the last one (Pariah) but because they just got a new book all they really got as an upgrade is a new special character.

Welcome back!

book 10 is in fact just the new 9th edition core book to be honest, grabbing bits from all PA books, as they seem to happen around the same time frame and then progressing the time line somewhat again

Just picked up the Space Marine codex. Looks like Cataphractii and Tartaros terminators are just like regular terminators now, just different weapon options. 5" movement and standard 5++.

Also, as I thought might be the case, bikers are now 3 wounds (yet attack bikes stay 4 . . . )

A little dissapointed that Chaplains now have to wait until their Command Phase before casting prayers. Since this will most likely be the same for Chaos, my Dark Apostle won't be able to shroud my Possesed in darkness at the start of Round 1 if I don't get first turn . . . ouch . . .

And another thing! Dreadnoughts got "Duty Eternal", which went from stratagem to special rule giving them -1 to all damage taken. I do hope our Hellbrutes get the same thing, and get rid of the "Crazed" rule (which I NEVER roll a six on, and most of the time the Hellbrute doesn't survive 'til the end of the phase anyway!)

3rd payment for the 40K app and still no battleforge. That’s the primary reason for getting it but realize you need the rest to work as well. Thinking of suspending the payment till this actually happens.

Both 40k and AoS have had these faction based "Scenery" pieces for awhile now. Its just a big plague furnace that gives cover to nearby deathguard units and can also be destroyed.

New Campaign is coming!

(https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/EQ2cKk8Pxnm4jLxu.jpg)

Quote
Typhus – wayward son of Mortarion, favoured of Nurgle, and host to the Destroyer Hive – seeks to exploit a weakened Imperium and claim the forge world Metalica for his own nefarious purposes. Standing against him are the Adeptus Mechanicus, and their epic battles will play out in War Zone Charadon Act 1: The Book of Rust. Heroes will stand, worlds will fall, and an entire system stands on a knife-edge.

(https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/N9JcsO2bs0OiBGYW.jpg)

Quote
There’s more than just the background of an epic war zone in here, the book also includes new rules for:

Death Guard
Adeptus Mechanicus
Imperial Knights
Drukhari
The warriors of Commorragh are keen to take advantage of the chaos and confusion caused by Typhus’ invasion. Alongside these codex supplements are rules for playing through the Charadon campaign yourself. Can you claim Metalica for the Death Guard or will you try to stop Typhus?

The Plague Purge Mission Pack allows everyone to join the fun in the Charadon war zone with a host of specific Crusade rules. Send your army campaigning through a land of rust and decay, and pick up some new relics and abilities along the way. In the same way as Beyond the Veil, this pack gives you a whole new region of space to set your campaigns in.


Along with some new codexes.
