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.

  • Big rumor! Word on the street is that Forge World will be porting their AdMech units over to 40k to be used with the rumored new Ad Mech faction.
  • Also, rumors floating around about Cult Mechanicus models coming out for 40k during the summer. And, holy crap, Electropriests!! BOOM!
  • The Skitarii Dune Crawler looks pretty dang good! They’re packing some heat.
    • Names of the Skitarii formations but not the rules are floating around.
  • Doctrina Imperatives can increase either a Skitarii model’s BS or WS once per game by either 1,2, or 3 with a corresponding decrease in the other stat.
  • Rumors of a new Vespid Kit, maybe in plastic?
  • Rumors in the new White Dwarf about something coming relating to Raven Guard and further rumors about White Scars getting some kind of attention, too.
  • GW comments on Fantasy going to round bases and doesn’t give any solid answer. So, that remains a mystery at this stage.
  • Rumors that DzC Reconquest Phase 2 will be out later this year!
    • No new faction.
    • Weather rules.
    • Roaming beasts that can interact with armies.
    • New commanders will have rules in the book.
    • The new infantry/small vehicle units will be in the book.
    • At least one new unit for each faction.
    • New scenery rules.

Rant Session

Rules Lawyer

  • BIG ONE! So, in multiple quarries, Forge World has responded that Faction: Eldar unit may be used in Harlequin detachments. That is pretty incredible for all you Harlie players out there. This has serious ramifications.

    White Scars and ravenguard are antagonistic chapters, each think the others approach to warfare is wrong. They teamed up once Vs. Alpha Legion

    Might be my codecs, but your volume seems super low.

    Long time lurker of your podcast here. You guys are doing a great job, keep it up!
    And Where’s the list for review? If you need more material. I got a nasty CSM with daemonkin Gorepack list I’d love to here your thoughts on.

      Send it in! We don’t always get a list for review, every show.

      And glad you enjoy it!

    Love the podcast as usual, but does anyone else have trouble hearing them speak? I have to crank up the volume to hear them and then Frankie goes and laughs right next to the mic, haha. It’s a vicious cycle…

    • white925 April 12, 2015 2:51 pm

      Yeah sorry about that we are trying some new stuff and it didnt exactly work this time around haha. We will get it all fixed though.

    This is shocking: “Forge World has responded that Faction: Eldar unit may be used in Harlequin detachments”. Where can I find this FW response?

      I shall post it up.

      • Cavalier April 12, 2015 6:03 pm

        Crazy game changer for sure. Gives Harlies everything they need to balance things out. I can imagine Harlie players really going to town painting up Hornets.

        • AbusePuppy April 12, 2015 6:51 pm

          Yeah, it really changes things. It also means that Harlequins can potentially qualify for a Combined Arms/Allied Detachment by using the FW HQ units available to them.
