Default Ultramarines Supplement - 'Tyrannic War Veterans'

Here is what seems to be the next Space Marine Company suplement, a quite likely bet imo

Quote:
For once i have a little birdy, that hasn't left a mess on my shoulder, it seems that the Ultramarines will be receiving their own Company Supplement, focusing on the events of the war against Hive Fleet Behemoth and the 1st company.

As usual, take with a grain of salt, but i'd say it's pretty much a no brainer when it comes to deciding what to focus an Ultramarines fluff book on, especially since the Damnos campaign is already covered elsewhere.

Oh goody I'm so excited for this I'm going to vomit! Wait it's not excitment that's making me want to vomit...

Oh all the chapters that need a supplement the fucking Smurfs are not where they should be putting their energy. As all the UM fan boys keep saying "they are definition of Codex". Good fuck off and stick to Codex Space Marines. Leave the supplements to Chapters that actually need it. You want to play 1st Company do what every other Chapter has to do and use the Dark Angels dex. How about a supplement for a Chapter that actually needs one...

I'd be interested to see how the Ultramarines supplement sells. Almost every Space Marine player I know hates that their army is almost immediately associated with them. And they all selected a different chapter for their Chapter Tactics.

Yes. But I don't actually play anymore.

So does this mean that the UMs are not a pure codex chapter? Are we gonna see something like a Wolf Guard or Deathwatch supplement just painted blue? (I use these units as they seem to me to be the closest to the style a Tyrannic vet list might look like.)

I believe the little fluff piece on the Tyrannic War Veterans in the 5th edition Codex stated that Calgar knew that it was a departure from the Codex: Astartes, but if it let them beat the Tyranids then it was excusable (which I believe is referred to as the 'By any means necessary' edict in Know No Fear).

I'm kind of sad that they have the time to write a chunky Space Marine book with 2 supplements, but still overshadow Dark Angels so utterly.

Having not read the DA codex I'm open to correction, but I thought everything necessary to run the various DA options like DW or RW were all in the book? What more do they need?

They need:
Tacticals that can stand up to Space Marine Tacticals (who get a free special rule or two, from FnP 6+ to re-roll 1s to hit with their basic weapons)
Scouts that can stand up to Space Marine Scouts (have the requisite gear to make them useful, and aren't horrifically overpriced)
Bikes that can stand up to Space Marine Bikes (Ravenwing < White Scars, is essentially all that needs to be said)
HQ choices that can stand up to Space Marine HQ choices outside of Divination Librarians (decent Relics, some kind of combat character that again, isn't prohibitively expensive)
Decent Flyers/Flyer defence (because Flyers > DA Flyers)

It'd be nice if Deathwing worked as an army, too, or even if they worked as a portion of an army.
