  • Forge World reveals some teaser images that look pretty cool. Space Marine aircraft and a Daemon of some sort is what it appears to be. Would guess that these are Daemon Prince Samus from 30k and the rumored new Xiphon Interceptor.

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.

  • Codex: Khorne Deamonkin is rumored to be coming out in the very near future which will be awesome if true! Rumored to be Khorne CSM and Daemons. There will also be data cards and bundles.
  • Adeptus Sororitas rumors:

    – R&D on the entire line is complete, and the range is all new in plastic.

    – 5-model combo-unit Sisters infantry kit

    – 3 model Sisters unit on 50mm bases kit

    – 5 model Sisters unit on 32mm bases kit (different from the infantry unit listed above)

    – Sororitas combo unit vehicle kit “A” kit

    – Sororitas combo unit vehicle kit “B” kit

    – Sororitas Walker/Monstrous Creature vehicle kit

    – 3 clampack Sororitas characters

    These are on ice and only await release scheduling by GW.

  • More rumors of smaller releases from GW like an Assassin boxed game? Also 30k, and AdMech.
  • Space Marines, Tau and Eldar books rumored to be getting updated for 7th ed, first.
  • Rumors of new figure cases that can hold 100, 200 and 400 infantry models respectively.

Rant Session

 

Tactics Corner

  •  Got our copy of the updated Seige of Vraks and it is really cool! The updated lists like the Death Korps Seige Regiment and Chaos Renegades are a lot of fun. The new special characters are quite good, too.
    • Seige drill is awesome, now, and Kreig are really solid AM choices, but lack AA.
    • Necrosius is an excellent Chaos HQ, and Zhufor and Arkos aren’t bad, either.

    Thanks for the review of my list, I was thinking of going hammernators with a Mephiston over the Astorath and the death company, But my main concern was mobility with the list.

    Also which is the best way to kit out Tac squads I was thinking Grav gun and Multi-melta because it gives tac squads utility against monstrous creatures and armor?

    Thank you again for your feedback.

      Happy to help! I prefer Melta/H.Flamer/M.Bombs for Tac Squads, personally.

    Will siege of vraks be playable for your events,
    Because I love love the hades and I looooooove the roughriders things.
    I may be able to actually do my knight themed ig now.

    What is the Warlord trait for that Alpha legion guy?

  5. Eldarain March 17, 2015 4:49 pm #

    I expect some of the more obvious things in the Eldar book fixed but they will get absolutely disgusting formations.

    Just ordered that evil craft sorcerer and some bits for my 30k night lords. I’m planning to convert him into the NL exiled chief librarian.
