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.

  • Tyranids on deck for a revamped codex?! Interesting if true.
  • “In November a new Tyranid army is being launched as ‘super psychic’ monsters with new psychic monstrous and gigantic creatures being released as a independent army like the mechanicum and cult mechanicum”
  • The new plastic Assassins rumored to be coming out soon in individual clam packs.
  • Horus Heresy in November? Rumors indicate GW stores are getting promotional materials for HH, and that Novemebr 7th and 14th will be big days.
  • Tau to continue all through October.
    • Rumors floating around that the Tau Commander can upgrade to a Coldstar Battlesuit that makes he and his drones FMCs! Coooooool!
    • Images of the new Tau terrain are floating around and some of the pieces are really huge. They will look absolutely killer on the HiTech F.A.T. Mat.
    • Two of the bundles on GW’s site for the new Tau seem to indicate two Formations we’ll see in the book: the Heavy Retribution Cadre which is 3 Ghostkeel suits and 2 Stormsurge, and the Optimized Stealth Cadre which appears to be a Ghostkeel and 2 units of Stealth Suits.
    • Images of what appear to be new Crisis Suits coming out, too.
  • More AoS in December, rumors indicating a Chaos vs. Order faction release. Could be Tzeentch, Elves or Dwarves.
  • More rumors that GW is looking at three tiers of games: AoS for beginners, 40k as mid tier, and 30k for Veterans.
  • The CSM codex is currently sold out in GW’s site. Is this a sign they are up for reboot….please?

Rant Session

Tactics Corner

Rules Lawyer

  • SmithTA asks: Can I use my Homing Beacon the turn my Tetra arrives from reserves?
    • In the Tau book, it does not say a unit must be on the table at the beginning of the turn for a Homing Beacon to work, so yes.
  • WHHodegs asks: How does mixed armor work with grav weapons?
    • This one is in the FAQ, but you use the majority, of the most beneficial save to the defender if there is no majority, as you would with toughness.
  • DaemonHunter asks: Can you take multiple Knight Cerastus?
    • This is also in the FAQ, but yes you can, so long as there aren’t more of them than other types of Knights.
  • Anon asks: Can we get rid of the Maelstrom?
    • No.
  • Anon asks: Will Chaos Knights be allowed at the LVO?
    • Yes!
  • Do Chaos Knights gain the benefit of being a Daemon of X
    • Yes they do, and yes, that is VERY powerful.
  • 1plus armor asks: Does catastrophic damage from a super heavy explosion cause melee or ranged D damage?
    • Ranged.
  • 1plus armor asks: Will Daemonkin be there own faction for the ITC, eventually?
    • Next season, they will.

    FW giving them Daemon of X via email is pretty cool. Now how about all their emails saying KDK can take any unit from IA13 with Mark/Daemon of Khorne?

      That’s something I think for a vote. This was a clarification on a rule that needed to be answered, that is an inclusion of options. I think the community would be open to it, though.

    Speaking of Cerastus knights, can you take one by itself and still meet the rules requirements?

    Can DA land raiders take Dozer Blades now? Their entry in the new codex says they may take upgrades from the DA Vehicle Upgrades List (the same text listed under Rhinos), but I keep seeing on various tacticas and reviews that they lost it.
