A rules sneak-peak from G-dubs about the new Creations of Fabius Bile!
Fabius Bile returns in War of the Spider, and he brings a new army with him – the Creations of Bile. We’ll be showing off some of their incredible rules and letting you know how to make the most of them.
In the lore, Bile is known for the terrible bargains he strikes – those who seek to employ the skills of the Clonelord have to pay a pretty penny for his services.* However, on the tabletop, those who follow him get a free faction bonus, as long as the army is Battle-forged.
A Movement and a Strength bonus? This is incredible on Possessed and close-combat focussed Chaos Space Marines. Take advantage – get your army forward and smash some faces. Just remember, you’re not allowed to take your opponent’s models and conduct post-battle experiments on them!
Relics of Bile
War of the Spider sees the Death Guard hunting Bile because he has stolen a mysterious artefact from them. Fortunately, the next Psychic Awakening book also includes some cool new Relics, which will help you defeat the sons of Mortarion (or anyone else for that matter). One of these is the Helm of All-seeing, it’s both fashionable and functional.
Reclaiming Command Points in Warhammer 40,000 is amazing, and with everyone getting additional ones every turn, it’s going to be just as good in the forthcoming edition. Speaking of Command Points, let’s take a look at what you can spend them on.
The Creations of Bile also get a suite of new Stratagems.** These give you some awesome tactical options and really help your army play like the genetically twisted combat horrors that they are. Get your army into close combat faster with Macrotensile Sinews.
Add this to the +1 Movement they get from the Experimental Enhancements rule, and now they’re REALLY fast. Use this to move your warriors forward as quickly as possible to take advantage of that extra point of Strength. First, you need to get them across the battlefield safely. Let’s see if Bile has anything up his sleeves that could help.
Use this at the start of a Fight phase when the enemy has you surrounded. Then imagine your evil laugh as your army effortlessly shrugs off those incoming attacks.
The rules for fielding the Creations of Bile can be found in War of the Spider, which is available to pre-order from Saturday. In the meantime, grab some Chaos Space Marines for Fabius Bile to start experimenting on.
* You could call it his fabulous bill.
** Bile has learnt a thing or two about warfare in the last 10,000 years.
