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.

  • Space Marine rumors galore!
    • Drop Pods not getting changed, apparently, just a FA choice, now. Get your counter Drop Pod Tactics ready!
    • Chapter Tactics still in there, largely with the same names.
    • Black Templars still in the book.
    • Pictures of Space Marine vehicles on square bases?
    • Heavy Grav Cannons available to Tac squads.
    • Dreads to go to 4 base attacks?
    • Any character on a bike makes bikers troops, no minimum size for squads.
    • Termies drop 5 pts per model, but TH/SS still same cost.
    • One of the Warlord Traits is FnP, another is a reroll ld bubble, and Fear.
    • Honor Guard and Command Squads are Elites choices now.
    • Rumors of a 3 Librarian Formation that let’s you harness warp charge on a 3+ and the lead libby can use any of the powers known by the other librarians.
    • No master of the forge, apparently, but you can take a servo harness for a techmarine and they have 2 wounds..
    • Iron Hands add +1 to FnP, which is bad ass.
    • Raven Guard lose Scout….lol. Gain Shrouded turn 1 and +1 to roll for Night Fight.
    • Salamanders get 4+ FnP vs. flame weapons.
    • Templars gain rage and counter attack if they take damage form shooting, cannot take Libbies.
    • White Scars no longer able to scout land raiders.
    • Tactical Doctrine lets you reroll all shooting and melee rolls. Any chapter can get access to this in the Gladius formation, which is the Marine decurion style detachment.
    • No assault marine formation.
    • Termie Formation allows turn 1 deep strike.
    • Same Relics.
    • Chapter master is an upgrade to a Captain. Calgar is the only LoW.
    • Bonuses to take 3 vehicles in a unit. 3 Whirlwinds get Shred and Pinning, Preds get Tank and Monster Hunter.
    • Thunderfire Cannons can be taken in squads, +1BS in a unit of 3.
    • Telion and Cronos are ICs now in the HQ slot.
    • Emperor’s Champion always S6, AP2, now.
  • Dark Angels models spotted with Grav Weapons, so that is good news for the 1st Legion!
  • The Age of Sigmar is coming the 4th of July.
    • Not a lot known as to what to expect with this, yet.

    The vehicles on square bases are Nick Bayton’s Ultramarines, he’s been basing his tanks since 5th ed – nothing to worry about!

    The Harlequins don’t have CAD (no HQ’s) their own is called Harlequin Masque Detachment.

      Frankie is working on that, now. Sorry for the delay.

    I wonder if Iron Hands +1 FNP will stack with FNP granted from Sang Priests. If so I could see Terminators/Honor Guard being somewhat viable, 2+ 3++ with 4+ FnP in some sort of land raider, or better yet a Spartan could cause some serious damage.

      Yeah, that would be solid!

      • Wizardfrog June 8, 2015 5:54 pm

        It does from what i’ve heard, Whats crazy is 2 demi companys put together let you get free transports (razorback, droppod, or rhino), if the razorback gets free weapons thats op, but still getting a ton of free obsec transports is freaking awesome, and getting access to a tactical doctrine regardless of your chapter tactics (like iron hands)

    fnp 4+ from flamers make them better vs Heldrakes and other ap3 or lower flamers

    • Nova star June 9, 2015 2:13 am

      Are bale flamers classed under the flamer weapons in the rulebook? If not then they wouldn’t get it

      • abusepuppy June 9, 2015 8:21 am

        They are not.
