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.

  •  The big rumor currently, is that the new Eldar book is immanent. Rumor has it at Space Marine dex size, almost 200 pages! We’ve also seen the Eldar dex removed from the GW site, so this looks like a total reboot, not just a supplement. Also, looks like a new Farseer/Skyrunner kit and Jet Bikes/Shinning Spears on the way! Also, rumors of a plastic Autarch Clampack.
    • Scatter Lasers no longer twin link, supposedly, but you can take them on Jet Bikes.
    • Wraithknight to go to LoW, is now a Gargantuan Creature with strength D shooting and assault?
    • New Psychic Powers
    • All distortion weapons to go strength D?
    • Composite detachment: 1-3 Guardian Type units, and a ton of other formations and such.
  • Rumors that Space Marines will also get a full new codex this year, along with new Assault Marines (hopefully with better rules) and a new plastic Chaplain.
  • Rumors of new brushes coming out from GW in the not so distant future.

List Review

Hi Guys

I was wondering if you could review this list for me. It’s a two detachment list, consisting of a battle forged space marine detachment and an adamantine lance formation.

Space Marine FOC

1850, and the space marines use the FW Raptors chapter tactics, so they get the bonus to stealth and also get rending when they fire their bolt guns.

Hq-Librarian with force sword 65 points

Troops-scout squad with flak missile launcher and camo cloaks x 2 180 points

Heavy Support-Stalker 75 points

Lord of War-Cerastus Knight Archeron

Adamantine Lance formation

Knight Errants x 2 one is warlord

Knight Paladin x 1

That plan is the Knights advance forward, whilst the space marines provide backfield support, and anti air cover. The librarian will also take telepathy and hopefully make one of the Knights invisible.

Let me know what you think

Kind regards

Nick

    Concerning “Maelstrom’s edge”

    A squad based sci-fi tabletop wargame using alternating activation, custom force rules, and featuring a space anomaly called the maelstrom consuming endless worlds with survivors of said worlds struggling against eachother in the face of certain doom. Why does this sound familiar to me? …I think someone really liked VOR: The Maelstrom.

    At least they were kind enough to change it from D10 to D6 /facepalm

      Uploading it, working through some technical kinks on the videocast.

        Looking forward to it!

    Composite detachment is ok, but I prefer combi-detachment. It’s a more 40k style name and needs less explaining because everyone is familiar with combi-weapons.

    as a black templar player a new dex can’t come soon enough. Also, technically a templar’s list could have multiple chapter masters aka marshals. Apples and cloned apples, but ya.

      Marshals are Captains and the High Marshal is a Chapter Master

          They still have a chapter master, He’s named in the index Astartes article

        castellans = captains, marshals = chapter masters, and the high marshal resides over them all. even says in the 4th ed book that the castellans lead the fighting companies while the marshals lead the crusades (which are essentially ad-hoc chapters).
