i now demand that Alfa-Leeda Best be the name for the glass cabinets that were seemingly made for mini displaying!
Beard, I just got the book and the terminator Inquisitor is gone! I just built one of my own after seeing yours in action and how much fun you were having with him … sigh
Beard, will you run this army of renown in a game for us? I think the potential chapter tactic changes round by round could be very nice.
Getting to the point now where its slightly embarrassing, you have an app yet you continue to push books with 4 pages of rules for each faction! these books for me, should appear at the end of all the codex releases to get all the players engaged and shape the narrative for the future. If its going to be 3 or 4 armies then app it.
Not related to the above video as such but… Laurance is going to the No Retreat Legends event soon. Would be aces to see him put out some competative content about the lead up to the event! Perhaps he takes some of the armies he is worried about out for a spin?
Please try out the buffed genesters now.
They have gone from 20 genestealers attacking 10 space marines doing 18 wound on average rolls, to doing 42 wounds with all the new buffs.
I’m gonna echo what a lot of people are saying. But yeah it’s bullshit they are releasing these books before all the codexes are out.
It’s a bad joke how badly organized all the rules distribution is. They could’ve had all of them out by now. All they had to do was put it in electronic form…..that’s it….
Yay a me battle cannon!
Is there a reason why every trait/relic/stratagem for Cadia wasn’t covered? It would have been nice to hear some analysis on the weaker sections of the supplement, especially for someone who is new and doesn’t reach the same conclusions as more experienced players. For instance, Tactica Pax Cadia seems really strong…but you didn’t mention it at all? Thanks 🙂
DW sargent w/ a Warlord Trait strat might acutally be one of the winners for the book. If I can Sarg WLT –> Paragon of the Chapter –> Oathkeepers (Black Templar) does that mean my Terminator heavy Proteus KT can now Heroically Intervene 6in? Might need an FAQ, but there are some good upgrades there.
Thanks gang, for a look at some of the updates, but as a Guard player, it’s just pretty crushing that unless I play Cadian (which I don’t), then it’s all just noise. Shame. Good luck to all those Cadian players out there, I hope these additions to your toolset help? The all infantry lists look like they might have some legs again? 🤷♂️🤞 However, I imagine this means we’re way off for a Guard codex for 9th. At this rate we’ll have waited what… 4 years and counting. I’ll take the point that in the past 4 years for a… Read more »
Personally I think the third leviathan trait is better than the redeploy, a lot of the time the redeployment does nothing because you deployed the best way you can in the first place… being able to switch between abilities, having that flexibility is very nice
Beard, I think you might be missing a lot with the Deathwatch. Yes, adding specialisms is expensive (you’re only going to do 10 man kill teams and combat squad where appropriate to make the point per model less taxing), but having the ability to basically use a different chapter tactic for an entire battle round is pretty big (veterans strat is only for the turn so any defensive ones that occur in opponents turn can’t really be used). For example, the BT chapter tactic allows you to shrug MW on 5+. This is useless with the strat as it won’t… Read more »
As a nids player it’s great to have some new rules and stuff, sorely needed and all looks rather cool…. but I’d rather just have my new codex, not a psychic awakening 2.0. It’s a lot of wedge to pay just for a small section of the book
So behind Beard’s beard is another beard?
I am happy that the Nids players get to receive some worthy upgrade, but these supplements are just wrong. You should not have to pay full price for 4 pages of rules, but even more they should not be putting those out while there are so many factions without codices. If it was a way to revamp a faction at the end of a cicle then sure, why not? But now it just feels a greedy move. And we are again at the stage when if you go to a tournament you have to bring half a bookshelf of books… Read more »
Agree. It’s so frustrating to be paying full book price and having a whole book to lug around for a few pages.
Especially when there will be a new codex and could even be more nid stuff in another book like admech.
Then the FW compendium..the faqs..
FYI – they did just reprint the inquisition stuff, but fortifications did get changes. They just made them worse ^_^
Really happy for the tyranids player to get some new rules but to pay more for a codex for just a couple of pages is still not right
