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.

Woo new previews! Check out these babies!

New Necromunda team. Frankly I thought about putting it in the necromunda section, but I took one look at these and thought about converting them to scouts, or vets, or who knows what else.



They helmets do really look like primaris marines.



There's also a new Blackstone Fortress Expansion! Which has me hyped.

Quote
Escalation is the thrilling next chapter in the story of Blackstone Fortress, pitting you against a threat not just to Precipice, but to the Imperium itself. In this latest expansion, Obsidius Mallex has gained control of a portion of the alien space station’s apocalyptic power, and now threatens to bring it to bear against his foes. Before, you were battling for treasure – now, you’re fighting for survival.

It's everyones favorite time of season again! Space Marine Update time!

A new V2 codex is coming out that will include the models from Shadowspear, as well as some new stuff. As well as that, they're going to split the main codex off from the First Founding stuff. The main codex will include the bulk of the rules, special rules to make your own successor chapters, and the usual stuff. Supplements will come out with new special rules and sheets for the various big names chapters that aren't already separate codexes.

My personal favorite new model is the dreadnaught walker thing that looks like it walked off the set of Avatar. There's also updated Primaris versions of Tigrus and Korsaro Khan.

The guys at the top? Those are infiltrators. Stealth specialists. All that com gear is to jam or hack enemy signals, and helps cloak their movements.

Note that it is not because you are on top that you are an infiltrator, though....

They're part of the new models that came in the recent Shadowspear box set. lore wise they're part of a new internal organisation amongst the Space Marines known as the vanguard. With more focus on stealth, sabotage and covert ops. So those top guys are the main troops for it, then the sniper guys below it are the more heavy hitters, and the weird dreadnaught walker thing is their mobile/stealth heavy hitter.

Welcome to the Imperial Soup my friend! Marines are about to get a massive update next week, so until the book comes out things are somewhat in flux. That said you should totally be able to use just primaris to supplement your guard.

That will work, GW is working towards more Primaris stuff anyway and is becoming a more and more stand-alone army to use
