Interesting. I wonder what rules are missing from the White Dwarf article. If they're anything like the Knights book, should just be Warlord traits and an odd special rule.

And if they have the same allies matrix as IG, Chaos can TOTALLY use them! MUAHAHAHA! I'll not hold my breath on that, though.

I'm totally using them for Inquisitorial Henchmen if I ever build a Inq Warband, they fit that feeling pretty well.

Relics, missions, maybe some variant game stuff (Cities of Death, Planetstrike specifically).

They have a separate codex (which means it's own allies chart) though so it's iffy on how they'll ally for now.

Depending on how they ally, it might be a way to see Storm Troopers return to Sisters armies too.

Well, in a very inefficient way, I could ally with an IG army and take them as Elites. There would probably be better ways to spend my points, in that situation. They might be fun dropped out of a Vendetta, though.

*edit* Also, forgot about the rules and missions and stuff. Those could be alright. I have yet to play anything other than a standard mission type, much to my displeasure. I love what MiniWargaming is doing with their narrative campaign, I wanna see and/or play stuff like that!

From the GW Site regarding the new book itself:

Quote:
Codex: Militarum Tempestus
For the first time, the Scions of the Schola Progenium grace the pages of their very own Codex - exclusively available here!

The Ordo Tempestus commands the finest human soldiers in the galaxy. It’s disciplined ranks boast not only the elite Scions of the Militarum Tempestus but also brutal Commissars.

Within the 72 pages of this hardback, full-colour book you will find:

- A definitive guide to the Militarum Tempestus, including the structures of the Officio Prefectus and a record of many of the legendary deeds enacted by this brotherhood of warriors.
- The story of how Scions and Commissars are trained by the Schola Progenium to best the best human warriors.
- A stunning showcase of the Ordo Tempestus Citadel miniatures, presenting the uniforms, regimental names and insignias of the Imperium’s elite.
- A full description of each unit, the rules for its use, and an army list that enables you to organise and collect an army worthy of the most discerning Lord Commissar.

Ye they would look well as henchman, sorta like the old storm troopers because they got replaced by the karskin stormtroopers. The old ones looked badass while these guys look badass but with that spec-ops feel to them. Perfect for Inq.

Was there individual Heavy Weapons Teams before? I know there was the squad, and that the individual ones are not the better deal, and that they are the same sculpts as before. Just noticed that they were also in the New Releases section as well as the Tempestus stuff.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Ye seen that as well. You used to be able to take buy them as one but then the were replaced by the 3x pack one only. Glad to see them back either way.

Why on earth has this been released before the main guard codex? Or have I missed something? (and I'm a little miffed that stormtroopers get a hardback when Sisters didn't)

Are these going to just be in the guard codex anyway, and this is a way to make extra money beforehand?

I've just noticed GW have reboxed the heavy weapons teams and there now nearly 10 each I'm glad I've still got loads or I'd have to go down the elite route too.
