  • There were a bunch of amazing sounding rumors for CSMs floating around the web, but they all turned out to be false.
  • Apparently, Coraz is the next Primarch to be released, is finished, and awaiting release. Rumors indicate that will be timed for HH weekender along with book 6 in the series.
  • More images floating around of the Tzeentch Herald on Disc, and he looks pretty incredible.

List Review

Hi all at Frontline Gaming, Here’s a list I’m currently putting together got most of it already but nothing in it is sacrosanct cept for lias of course I’m also assuming that they are going to nerf Raptor tactics to  match Ravenguard so no scouting battle company for me!

HQ

Lias Issodon

Librarian, lvl2, bike, auspex

ELITES

Command squad, apothecary, bikes, 2x grav guns

5x Sternguard, 2x combi melta

TROOPS

10x Scouts, bolters, melta bomb

10x Scouts, bolters, melta bomb

10x Scouts, bolters, melta bomb

HEAVY

5x Devastators, 4x lascannons

5x Devastators, 4x lascannons

3x Devastator Centurions, 3x grav cannons, omni scope

FAST ATTACK

Stormtalon, skyhammer missile launcher

Stormtalon, skyhammer missile launcher

Drop pod

INQUISITION ALLIED DETACTMENT

Inquistor Coeteaz

Tactics are pretty obvious bikes set up normally as distraction (jink with shrouded if they nerf c.t as expected) and to allow 1st turn counter assault. Everything else infiltrates (i know las cannons arent great but figure with infiltrate they should get good positions) Coeteaz and cents go in pod unless i feel they would be better infiltrating in which case las cannons will be deployed normally. Sternguard act as a fluffy bodyguard for lias and scouts grab objectives.

let me know what you think

    I found the time for this is 11am, but had to search it up abit. It would be really awesome if these articles said the date and time. Love the content keep up the great work.

    • DirtyDeeds December 7, 2015 1:39 pm #

      It shows the date and time at the top of this post…

    Hey Reece, just a heads up, I believe Raptors CT now use the first bit of the updated Ravenguard CT rather then scout. Not official I guess and can be argued either way, but the link below may provide some further insight.

    The Mordheim video game is still not out. The Vermintide is actually set during the end times when the skaven rising up in Empire cities.

        Ah, ok, thanks for the clarification!

  4. Hotsauceman1 December 7, 2015 7:11 pm #

    Here is my problem with the tau decurion
    1: the decurion benefits are useless if you take tanks, because the command squad can only affect infantry, but the infantry one SUCKS!!!!
    2: Ok, dont take the Command squad in the HQ? Ok take the tank command, then you have two command tanks, that is 7 leman russes.
    What Aux do you take after that?

    • iNcontroL December 8, 2015 8:17 am #

      tau decurion eh hotsauce?

      • Hotsauceman1 December 8, 2015 8:31 am #

        Haha, I was think IG decurion when I wrote that.

    Great episode, guys. Reece, would love to see you run your footdar again.

    BTW, it’s a long shot, but I may try to go for a 3rd Top Amy category.

      Nice! I love the ambition.

  6. Stable_Earth December 8, 2015 9:07 am #

    My favorite episode so far. Loved the banter between Reece and Geoff, and Reece’s desperate attempts to reel Geoff in when he starts to venture into the realm of political incorrectness.

      Lol, yeah, I was like, someone get the hook for this guy! haha

    Awesome episode, very watchable 🙂

    I wanted to comment on the Total War thing.

    1. “Pre-order” exclusives/freebies are most often used as an attempt to get people to put down their hard earned cash, before reviews come out. It seems like games are split into several camps nowadays. If you are going to make a terrible game, a steaming pile of crap that people won’t want to play, then it makes sense to get them to pre-order it, right?

    The last total war game, had HEAPS of AI issues at launch. For these types of games, that basically makes them unplayable. I was planning to buy this game “at” launch. I won’t put down a dollar, until I see some reviews by someone reputable. But I’m pretty annoyed that I won’t be able to play chaos unless I prepay.

    There is of course a simple solution, they could allow media outlets to publish reviews ahead of the launch date.

    2. It’s not “extra” content, if it’s available on launch. It was content created during the development. If you want to split it up, then make the game $1 and let me JUST buy the single player campaigns I want. Make the game fully modular, so I can choose what I want to buy, or put all the content in at once. Don’t dick around on launch. Now, there’s definitely bonus content that I don’t mind. Skins, graphical things, a unique weapon. No problem, but an entire single player experience is just too much, IMO.

    3. Chaos is the “big bad”.

    Imagine if Starcraft 3 launches, and the Zerg or the Protoss where the pre-order exclusive. Wouldn’t that smack of “WTF”, and make you think they were trying to get people to buy before they could see how good the game is.

    If you are confident in how your game will perform on launch, once the reviews come out, there’s no reason to offer these pre-order incentives.

    • TheRower December 9, 2015 9:09 am #

      Right on the money Timbane. I’ll probably still preorder. Cause I’d rather have Chaos than have to pay for it. But when you look at Rome 2 Total War and how long that buggy mess took to fix it’s really disheartening. I preordered that one and it sat in my steam library for a solid 6 months of patching before it was an enjoyable experience. That’s just unacceptable
