MadCowCrazy This thread has become quite large so I'm copying the first post into a new thread so we can continue the discussions anew since there will be allot to talk about in a not too distant future

New thread here : https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...d.php?t=112303

Zion Added the cover to the first post. We should really see something by Wens-Friday I think if they usual White Dwarfs that hit early occur again. But I can always be wrong, so we'll have to wait and see.

The Sturk I'm not a fan of the supposed Power Weapon change, for reasons already mentioned. Termies, Meganobs and Pallys will become even harder to kill in CC. Granted, my army doesn't deal too much with CC, and having my Overlords withstand power attacks would be nice, but has a whole, its just a bad idea. I also hope that this 5++ is only used in CC.

Akhara'Keth When you look close at the picture you can identify the last two words as "only war". Since GW prints "in the grim darkness of the far future blablabla" only on the rulebook and not on Codices, I'm pretty sure that it is the rulebook cover.

Troublehalf Apparently Dark angels are 'getting something very exciting for 2-3 months time'. So, 23rd June is when preorders go live and 30th is when you get them dispatched.

All very interesting, I love reading rule books just for fun.

1) Is buryjust making stuff up?
2) If not, are all stores posting the same things?
3) If not, is someone keeping track of them all to collate?
4) Do we know which planet that is?

SilverTabby It also makes sense of the Sisters list, where the Sister Superiors all have the option to purchase chainswords.

Just lends weight to my emphasis on everything from GKs onwards being written with the 6th rules more or less finalised.

I'd expect several more strange things to suddenly become much clearer and better.

Well they're currently under the Psyker entry because of the test and all, wouldn't imagine they would depart from that too much, maybe list it with the other weapons.

Well the first step on the road to recovery...is smashing your head into a brick wall, you can barrow my wall.

Curious about close combat weapons getting an AP though...sort of makes sense that I could cut through an Ork with a chainsaw like it was butter but the term CCW is generic as far as I know...unless it was something like a number minus strength or something.

Force weapons might get AP2 and a 4++ save? Of course, that would be "upped" to a 3++ on the Nemesis Force Sword. I can't see why my purifiers would be unfair, with their halberd making them Ini 6 with a 3+/4++ save?

All in all, it'll be fun to play a "whole new game"!
