I'm also quite happy with the FAQ! I need to spend some time and have a closer look, but overall it looks pretty good. Like Friday my deathwatch miss the bolter rule, but I actually like that the versatility is still there. Guard is fine, GSC are fine, even my marines are mostly fine.

New previews are up!

Quote
Your prayers to the Omnissiah will be answered soon, Adept. Hey, speaking of the flesh being weak…

Iron Hands players. Let’s take a moment, just for you. (If you don’t collect Iron Hands, keep reading anyway – we promise you won’t be disappointed). Nearly every time we’ve held a Warhammer Preview, one of you guys has been brave enough to stand before the raging tides of hype and say: “Sure, this is cool, but what about an Iron Hands named character?”

This is the kind of dogged persistence that’d make Ferrus Manus himself proud – and we’re happy to announce that your valiant pleas have finally been met with an answer.



A new named Iron Hands character! Someone finally remembered they exist!

I'm a fan of the Ad Mech transport. I'm going to convert one up to go with my guard, and we're going to invade Normandy all over again. 40k D-Day count down begins!

Well, those Knights look awesome, but here is where I think 40k is getting really silly. That Repulser Executioner is just ridiculous. Main cannon, gatling gun, twin-liked heavy bolters, heavy stubber (when did Marines start using those?!? And missiles all over the turret. All the weapons look so cheesy. And the Skorpius Dunerider and Skorpius Dsintegrator are cool being hovercrafts, but the Disintegrator suffers the same thing as the Executioner with the weapons all over it, especially the missiles in the front, just look ridiculous.

'Where do you want to mount the missiles?'
'How about right in front, where the enemy bullets are going to hit.'

Its like GW designers are thinking, 'Hey the kids are going to love all the guns sticking out of these things, and that will make these guys sell, so put guns everywhere regardless how ridiculous it is.'

This is why I have lost interest in 40k. Its a shame too because the techniques they are using to make these new kits are amazing, but they just seem to be losing touch with reality. I know this is the same universe where people are running around with chainswords, but still. I used to think GW was grounded in some kind of reality but I think they have lost it. Its becoming more fantasy than Age of Sigmar.

The Primaris guys are missing out on vehicles. Looks like they have 2 to choose from. Anyone know if they are making update Land Speeders or Bikes for them?

You know I had not noticed all the missiles all over the Repulser till reading your post. That is indeed a great deal! Not knowing anything about it's armaments it's possible they're some kind of smoke or chaff screen. (or whatever it's called on modern tanks when they fire it off to distract incoming fire.)

I'm not a huge fan of non deathwatch marines to begin with so I can't say it grabbed my interest. As a counter point, and vehicles aside, I actually find a lot of the current Primaris marines to be far more modern warfare then almost any previous marines. It's actually one of the big complaints I see on reddit and various lore boards. That they look more like modern spec op's then the previous more knightly marines. Personally I like the look. The new infiltrates and vanguards look awesome. As soon as they let Deathwatch use them I'm going to ebay the marine half of the Shadowspear box and get converting.

Interesting! Thanks Artoban. I've seen ebay deals like that before but hadn't looked into it for this yet. Soon as they let my beloved watch use them, I'll jump on it.
