according to matt, a staff member at my local store (and the embediment of awsome, in a sligthly weird way) PS plays like how 40k should be played.

it certainly has elements of Siege in it (though having seen some of the Stratagems it now seems more like a rehash of CoD and Apoc), but its not quite the same thing. there is still room for a 40k expansion based around laying siege to a heavily fortified, high walled position.

by the looks of it, it would not be very simple to combine any of them (other than Apoc and CoD). PS looks like the FOC is going to be quite a vital part of it (forcing the players to choose suitable armies with non-standard composition), where as Apoc totally reliquishes that part of the game to the player. also, the objectives of Apoc and PS seem to be mutually exclusive. if you ignore those two elements the question becomes moot.

as for CoD and PS, it seems that there isn't much scope for cross over, as the Stratagems are already practically identical, and there are seperate building rules in both. its possible that you could use CoD building rules instead of PS ones, but that wouldn't necessarily be a combination of the two expansions.

Anyway, Shrike and co may be impressive, but we've got 132 S6, 2 S8 Melta, and 1 S9, shots a turn...you've got none! :P

thats ok 2+/3+ inv watched 5 thunder hammers go through 1500pts of gaurd without a scratch its rare but sucks what it happens

I agree katie.
When they haven't read the rules either lol, the good news all infantry units have deepstrike ability not just models in codex ALL being focussed word here.

tanks bikes cavalry walkers come on from attacter board edge. vehicles with deepstrike ability, landspeeders, dreads in pods etc have the deepstrike ability,

only thing is the scatter factor deep striking close to enemy for the assault is risky meaning you might die get placed in a corner etc. so remember that.


:victory: peace out peeps.

i just went in store today and took a look through their copy. not sure how i feel about the game anymore.

it still seems just to bridge the gap between CoD and Apoc and not really introduce much to the game at all. there are abut 6 scenarios in the book, which is good, but it just doesn't seem to modify the game enough to justify its own existence. will have to play a number of games at a variety of sizes to see whether this really is a different way to play the game.

it might be different outside of the UK, but here if you pre-order your copy it will be with you shortly. and if you pre-order it in store there's no postage.

Hi all
I just managed to get a look at planetstrike at my friendly local independent store and I have to say that there is some interesting bits to it like the meteor strike which is a S10 AP1 large blast that scatters 3D6 instead of 2 but some of the stratagems are not the clearest rules to understand and its not just me being special, but I will say that there is some nice background about the crimson fists last stand and how you can do that in planetstrike.
One thing is for sure, is that it will be an interesting way to play 40k

I heard rumors that Chaos have ther Dread Claws in PS. I didnt see any special rules in the earlier post. So have I heard wrong (most likely, what does Chaos ever really get thats cool in 5th Edition)
