Default Adeptus Astartes: Storm Wing

So the next rules Dataslate is out, and once again, it's a doozy.

You must take one Stormraven, and two Stormtalons. These fliers come from C:SM, so all allies that get Space Marines, etc etc etc....


The special rules? As long as one 'talon lives, the 'raven gets Strafing Run. And all three can come in on the same Reserves roll, sort of like a steroid-enhanced buff to the 'talon's existing Escort rule.

Now, something to note is that since this is a Formation, the Stormtalon can't transport anything. You're literally using the bad boy as a flying tank. Not a bad thing, since with Strafing Run it's gonna seriously make a mess of things, but even if you ran a Marine Formation in a Marine Codex, I think that pesky ally rule would stop you from loading the gunship with troops.


Personally? I think this is just what I was waiting for to give my Dark Angels the fliers that a fast army deserve.

HOLD IT!


that exact amount of models is being sold as a Christmas bundle before teh data slate came out and the fire base support was on sale before IT'S data slate came out.

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

And? It seems like a plausible marketing strategy. But what I was saying is that those rules came out today, and are fairly potent.

I think it can still transport C:SM stuff, but you're right on the rest of it...

the point i tryed to make is that I think we've seen GW 'tell' and that we now have a fairly good guess what a few of teh other data slates are, such as a Eldar Ghost Warrior set.

They make awesome rules to sell models that are otherwise former centrepieces and unique models.

Remember the ground pounding armies of 3rd edition, with 20 model sets , and those predator/leman russ kits left rotting on the shelf? Or all those Super Heavies? Or the flyers? I used to have a dozen fliers from the days of IA1 first edition (Imperial Armour update, actually), and only with 5th did I get to use them adequately, but with the advent of 6th, I suddenly got to play with my awesome toys without being hammered too badly.

Seems a bit disgustingly powerful, but never mind... At least it's a lot of points tied up off the table for turns 1-2.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

As long as it sells minis GW doesn't give a shit and probably prefers it this way. Now if they made a box with the Storm Raven and two Dark Talon's then I would be interesting (which they won't). Until then the credit card stays in the wallet.

“Independent Formation: The Adeptus Astartes Storm Wing Formation does not benefit from the Chapter Tactics special rule, but units from Codex: Space Marines that are included in the same army can begin the game embarked on the Stormraven Gunship, and can embark on it during the game.”

Wow, complete coincidence, no honestly; it is just a coincidence

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
