Meh, I'm guilty of doing the same thing. When the SoB WD came out I was a bit pessimistic but still hopeful the next WD that had the points costs would make the army viable but that turned out to be wrong. 12pts for a Battle Sister....

You wanna compare a Fire Warrior to a CSM? Pfft, compare a Battle Sister with a CSM, for 1 point you get +1WS/S/T/I.
But Sisters have a 6++... <--Fuck you and everyone else who thinks that's useful!

So far I think the 6E dexes have been pretty balanced, nothing has really screamed OP, Helldrake perhaps but I remember all the blogs etc stating it was useless and no one would take one when we got the rumours. Now all I read is about how the Helldrake makes MEQ armies useless etc etc etc.

Once the dex is out it wouldn't surprise me if people say Fire Warriors are the best infantry in the game for their cost or this unit is op and that unit is op.
So far it seems only the Kroot get pretty badly burnt but we dont have the rules yet so we dont know. Heck they might have a 2+ cover save if in terrain, can assault 12" and eat their victims to heal models that died during the battle. Then again they might be as shit as the rumours claim.

Only thing that worries me right now is that we have no SoB rumours at all, out of all the armies in 40K and Fantasy combined they need a re-release the most. Even more than the Tau do. Yet they dont even seem to be on the radar for a release, at least not this year.

I'm curious to see the rules as this is the first Xeno 6E book.

Not sure where This came from, or if you need a G+ account to see it but hey. Some Spanish codex pages for anyone who would like to see....

Interesting that Barracuda in Spanish appears to be "Manta Ray"...

So scans in Spanish (I think) have been posted on the web. One solid piece of good info I could pull out of them: Pulse Rifles = 30" Joy, Joy!

Books might be showing up at my store today. I'll try to post more spoilers when I get home.

Also, Riptide is t6/w5. If you boost the big burst cannon it's 12 shots s6 rending, or something like that.

That is good news - someone just being a wind up merchant. Because obviously we all need more reasons to have a moan on 40k forums ;).

Good that the Riptide has un-instakillable toughness, and overcharging the big burst cannon sounds like a good laugh, if nothing else

looks like Pathfinder's rifle range has dropped, but can be put back with a rone..... Interesting? Could be where the rifle came from.

When evil seeks to overcome good
And firepower ovecomes the spoken word
Then death shall rain from the sky on wings of blood
And retribution will be swift

Twenty Kroot with Sniper rounds at 140 points sounds like fun.

It does look good for Kroot Snipers, especially as it's an upgrade round, not a new weapon.

GW just put up their Tau model video, 6min long. I'm pretty impressed for once. Bit disappointed that they didn't show the drone connected to a Devilfish or whatever it is you can attach the large pathfinder drone to.

I liked how they did the Firewarrior to Riptide scale thing, was pretty well done. Just a screen shake and it would have been perfect.



Here are some translations of the leaked Spanish dex.
