They look great! But I miss a breaking color on 1 shoulderpad / kneepad, I think that would really make them stand out, unless that wasn't the idea you had or the fluff for this chapter.

Thanks alot guys!

They gave me another point reduced from Imperium in the 2nd week of the global campaign (as a not themed unit finished, themed unit for that specific week earns 2 points)

just reported my win versus Blood Angels, that is 10 points down for the Imperium :)

Horray! I mean....heretical Tau expansionistic xenos!

Just keeping the balance we want Imperium and Chaos to be on an even footing.. thus more on both side will die and the Greater Good will prevail!

I have done now 4 battles, 3x 500 points (2x vs AdMech (both losses though if the 2nd game continued I could have won) and 1 vs Necrons (won)) and 1 1k point game versus Heretics (won, will be a battlereport of soon).
2 times the basic mission and 2 times a maelstrom game (at 500 points I would not suggest to do a maelstrom game there are just to few units on the table). Everything is nicely streamlined, though with rolling for attacks you really should look out for when to single roll multiple dice or fast rolling as it can have a major impact on the results.

Comparing with old WHFB (As I don't have a reference of the old 40K) It just seems to be more time to have fun with the "narative" feel of the battle with what some dice rolls are doing to the game (My Commander fluffed all his Fusion Blaster attacks versus a Leman Russ tank on the wound rolls, but killed a solo Mutant that was chargeing at him on overwatch.. he looked more frightning I think.

I am joining the campaign with my T'au empire trying to get points away from any side I dislike the most at that time :)
I do play the games at home and report them to my Local GDub store, and maybe in one of the later weeks I might be at the store. Not sure how many games I can get in per week if any at all (seems to be that I have to do a vacation somewhere else also in that period of the 6 weeks campaign)

Is my index invalid now?
Not at all. Even with the pace we’re planning on releases these new codexes, it’s going to take well over a year to get to all of them. No single codex will cover all the contents of an index book, so you’ll get plenty of use out of all your indexes, don’t worry.

I just bought Index: Imperium 1 – what should I do with it?
You’ll want to keep hold of your index. Codex: Space Marines doesn’t include rules for playing with Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Space Wolves, Deathwatch or Grey Knights armies, so you’ll still need Index: Imperium 1 to play with those. You’ll also need it for using some of the more unusual models such as the 30th Anniversary Space Marine, the Legion of the Damned and the Terminus Ultra Land Raider.

just saying...

Had my first game of 8th this weekend (CSM vs Astra Militarum), and had lots of fun. We screwed up some of the basic rules (characters are no longer in units/have to charge sperately/etc), and some army specific rules, but otherwise was very impressed. My buddy playing IG was upset that his mech guard can't be played like it used, but has enough models to try something different. And, of course, next time, I'll remember that Khorne Berserkers can attack twice in one round. :)

Some questions:

When do flyers appear/deploy on the board? I couldn't find anything in the basic rules or index/data sheet that says when/where my Heldrake can come on. Looks like he can be deployed as normal. I know some units can come on anywhere on the board at the end of any movement phase no closer than 9" from an enemy unit (Terminators/Jump troops/Kommandos/etc), but no such rules for my Heldrake or Dakkajet. Anyone know?

Can my Dakkajet shoot at something behind it? RAW, it looks like it can. In the old rules, there were pages of diagrams that detailed how/when/where a pintle mount/turret mount/sponson mount/hull mount weapon can shoot. Of course, for now we are playing it as the old rules, just wish I could find something in the current rules that details it. What say ye, brothers?

Flyers must deploy at the start of the game, unless they have a rule on their datasheet to be deployed "somewhere" else. Otherwise your army needs to have abilities to call in reinforcements but then you need to set those points aside on your army roster (and then you could use the points for something entirely different as well) in a reinforcement pool.

And yes shooting / attacking is in a 360 arc.. But with your flyer just imagine it shoots stuff while it passes it during its move.
