Upcoming ITC Events

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.

  • Supposedly Skitarii and Cult Mechanicus releases are coming up, soon!
  • The long rumored Khorne release is said to be coming very soon! We’ll see what it brings if it comes, but persistent rumors have been cult terminators and new rules for Berzerkers, Bloodthirster, etc. New dataslates which means we could get characters, units, formations, etc.
  • More rumors of the 30k Platic kit which comes brimming with options and is compatible with both existing 30k and 40k model kits….followed by rumors that they are actually a long way off, yet. Time will tell!
  • HUGE RUMOR: Also, big spoiler alert, don’t listen to this bit if you don’t want to know how the Fantasy End Times series finishes.
    • The fantasy world is completely destroyed, rendered into nothingness by the forces of Chaos! Total destruction, Chaos wins.. They also indicate that a new world will be born by the sole surviving man.
    • The ending here is so, so similar to the end of the Elric series that it is crazy.
    • Rumors that Fantasy reboot will also be playable as unbound, too.
    • Formations definitely coming to Fantasy, too.

Hot Deal!

The basics is that this list the vindicare mans the Cannon giving is a two shot str d ignores cover blast. or an apocalyptic blast with variable str that also Ignores cover. I do this mostly from fear of the Barbed Heiradule. One idea is to replace the vindicare with coteaz and just get the Ignores cover from IG orders(This will also give the D cannon Psuedo Intercepter) Platoon combines w/ Yarrick and mans the battlements. It is also possible to replace it with a vortex missile, allowing me to hit targets out of LOS with ignores cover. The veterans go out and take objectives.

    The rumours call for two *books* on release, not necessarily two Codexes, right? I reckon we’ll get Codex: Skitarii and a book called Cult Mechanicus which I assume will be the now customary Hobby Book companion.
