Really, these 'Chapters' of Stormcast Whatsoevers just did it for me ... yeah ... and Sigmar is the God Emperor of Mankind.
They're mixing up the fluff of both WHFB and 40k now.

And to all the 40k players out there .... guess who's next to be a victim of the new 'simplified and community friendly rules' ... yeah, 40k 8th edition due in .... no time at all .... since we're pushing out codex books faster than you can adapt to them anyways.
Seriously, 40k will see the same treatment in due time.

Games Workshop, the company you once loved, now violating one game system at a time.

Astral Templars and Lions of Sigmar ... u-huh ...

40k Armies: Dark Eldar / Adepta Sororitas
WHFB Armies: Vampire Counts / Empire / various Elves
Horus Heresy: Alpha Legion / Warp Cult

Honestly, with the immense arms race that is currently happening and the overall complete lack of direction with the codexes, I wouldn't mind this at all. GW has demonstrated that they are not grown up enough to handle stats like AP and STR D, but just throw them everywhere in abundance.

Hell, I would take simpler rules and a codex less game anyday over how they run it currently. So I say bring it.

That new Astartes armour looks really good. Anyone know what MK it is though? It looks like it's probably artificer of some sort, but it's at a craftsmanship level on par or even above that of the Blood Angels. Maybe Salamanders successor chapters then, or a combination of Blood Angels and Salamanders, working together to produce the best looking armour possible. Very much look like Death Masks that the Angels are known for.

I'm assuming those are either Combat Shields or Storm Shields? I'd guess Storm Shield despite their modest appearance, probably some really good tech behind them. I understand they use Thunder Hammers as well, this goes well with Storm Shields. No ranged weapons though? Can't see any bolt pistols or Angelus boltguns on them.

Curious as to why they are calling the Emperor, Sigmar though?

Because these are actually a previously little-known branch of the Adeptus Custodes, and Sigmar is one of the Ninety-Nine Titles due to the Emperor of Mankind. The Shield and Hammer weaponry is used for incursions into the webway portal beneath the Golden Throne.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

It's Mark 9 3/4,
It's currently only used by the Red Herring Chapter and the Ordo Custardy (basically SOB wearing Power custard)

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

The "Hallowed Knights are so pure of spirit that magicks have little hold upon them"?

And that color scheme...

Just call them Grey Knights, GW, just call them Grey Knights.
