Rumors: The Rumor Section is gathered from the web and is not in any way information we receive from  any manufacturer nor is it necessarily accurate. This section of the podcast is intended for entertainment purposes only.

    • Resurrection protocol to work a lot like FnP, 5+, don’t work against the D but do work against ID, start at 5+, can’t be better than 4+. Res Orb rumored to let you reroll failed rolls for one phase, one time.
    • Living Metal to ignore shaken, and on a 6, you regain a HP.
    • Praetorians and Lychguard going down to 25pts, rumors indicate, and getting an extra attack as well as a 3++ for the Lychguard Shield.
    • Triarch Stalker to boost BS of nearby units.
    • Flyers to go up in points.
    • Death Ray to be a blast weapon, now.
    • Phase Shifter down to a 4++
    • Doomsday Ark gains +1 strength.
    • The rumored Decurion Detachments allow models to be in two detachments at the same time….yikes.

Rant Session

Tactics Corner

Rules Lawyer

  • So there is a legacy of ruin item death of kasyr lutien your latest chaos forgeworld book.

    “When psychic tests to use malific daemonology powers are made by friendly psykers within 12″ of the vehicle, one d6 may be re-rolled for every hull point the vehicle has remaining (each may only be re-rolled once, regardless of how many HP the vehicle has left). If the test is failed, the vehicle suffers a penetrating hit in additional to any normal consquences to the Psyker” for 15pts on regular vehicles and I think 35pts on superheavies.

  • So how does it work? Per army or psyker?
  • Its really amazing….
  • Hi Chris.
  • The amount of d6’s that can be re-rolled are per army rather than per Psycher in range of the vehicle.
  • If there is anything further we can do to assist you, or if you have any queries about the information we have requested or provided, please telephone us.
  • If you are using the Old Necron codex at the LVO, you cannot use the new Formations from the New Necron Codex.
  • For anyone planning on taking the Ork Character Stompa, please be aware that he does not come at the price listed in the FW book.

    “MSS getting a big nerf…as expected.”

    I think my Swarmlord just burst into tears of joy.

      I was told it is a Fear check in a challenge on 3D6, lol!

      • Arrias January 27, 2015 11:34 am

        As long as Swarmy isn’t being forced to nut-check himself, I’m happy.

          True dat, although I honestly do feel bad for Cron players that it was such a harsh nerf. Oh well, tis what it is.

    The Death Ray didn’t need to be Changed from a beam to a crappy blast, they have rules for Beams now in the rule book!!!! I’m going to shake my first in futility at the air

    • Ciaran January 27, 2015 9:29 am

      The beam was pretty disgusting

      • AbusePuppy January 27, 2015 12:11 pm

        It could be dangerous if you positioned your models poorly, but it really wasn’t that amazing. Unless the Doom Scythe gets a MAJOR price drop, it’s gonna be pretty garbage.

  3. ligolski January 27, 2015 9:10 am

    Doesn’t the change to we’ll be back help with morale checks at least?

    • Reecius
      Reecius January 27, 2015 10:42 am

      Yes, good point there!

  4. iNcontroL January 27, 2015 1:52 pm

    If necrons need someone to listen to them or a shoulder to cry on they can call 1800-Nid-Care

  7. Neek January 27, 2015 6:34 pm

    I live in SD! Chula Vista to be exact. Reecius, idk if you remember him but my friend Braulio who got me introduced to 40k says he used to play with you down at the Game Empire when it was at the Hazard Center. I would love to get a couple games in with your and Frankie once you’re all situated!

    • Reecius
      Reecius January 27, 2015 9:30 pm

      Definitely we should get a game! And yeah, totally remember Braulio!

    Great podcast as usual. One quick note (caveat: I am not playing at the LVO so I don’t personally care) – are you intending to allow Necron players to use the new Shield of Baal: Exterminatus formations and Relics with the old codex? You only mentioned that the new codex formations could not be used in conjunction with the old, but if you allow the Exterminatus formations/gear which were 100% written for the new codex, you get some pretty ugly combos that were clearly not intended. Just off the top of my head without looking up the specific names (and these were obvious to me without even being a Necron player when I first read the rules), you can get the cryptek/ctan formation with God Shackles where one cryptek can deepstrike the formation every turn with veil (now a one use relic) and the other can have a 3++ and one re-roll per phase (I believe re-roll is gone and save changed to 5++ vs shooting or something similar). Also there is the Armour relic that allows re-rolls of saves of 1, where you can still get 2+/3++ on your ICs (overlords, etc.) whereas in the new book they only have 3+ with 4++ max. Imagine the I ld barge lords with re-rolls of 1 to saves. And you have probably seen it but the new rules while still technically “rumours” are pretty much 100% verified by a guy who has an advance copy and is typing out rules verbatim and answering all questions.

    Anyways, just something to think about – again it doesn’t affect me but I wanted to make sure you guys made an informed decision!
