Samus looks terrible, but at least we now have access to a new LoW for Daemons/Daemonkin. Not a very good one, and overpriced as per usual for FW, but this is what we get. Would have been decent if he was a gargantuan creature, but he isn't. Turn 3 charge at best. S7, S8 on the charge... meh. He also doesn't get Blood for the Blood God/Skulls for the Skull Throne. I'd rather spend 50 less points and take Be'lakor. Or 100 less points and get a D-thirster.

Here's a pic with marines for scale:

+1 to the cost of Blessings and all doubles on Instability resurrecting the unit are both pretty huge benefits, and halving enemy Leadership if he's in base contact is not half bad either. The fact that he's still a pretty strong beatstick on top of that is just added gravy.

Shame it's a meh model that looks nothing like how I imagine him looking, but ah well.

EDIT: Oh, the Warp Surge thing is only for 30k. Yeah, he's not brilliant then.

Samus looks fine. Also, there is no one look to samus. This is his carnation on calth, but he could have looked completely differently on 63-19.

PS you dont have to paint him red

Today, I march for Calth

The way I read it it was only for Khorne Daemonkin that the rule didn't apply.

*edit*

On reading it again, yeah I think you're right.

Nah, he only gets Daemon Prince of the Ruinstorm/Lord of the Ruinstorm (the rule is called DPotR, but all references to it are LotR - Forge World!) if he's in an Age of Darkness game using the Chaos Daemons book or Legiones Astartes Word Bearers. If you're playing 40k, then just loses his 're-roll a d6 for Instability and dubs are Warp Surge' rule with no compensation, which is shitty.

It doesn't look how I imagined him on Calth either. Something less human, stringier, with big ol' horns. Black with yellow eyes (can paint him like this, but judging the FW model here). Walked around on all fours. That's how I pictured it anyway. I think his pose really doesn't help, like he's just tripped over something and is falling forwards roaring in surprise. The model looks a lot better with the open hand though, I think, removes a lot of the awkwardness in having all the model's bulk on the right with nothing on the left.

Personally, I thought it would look more Arachnid like. Void of all light, something made of complete darkness

EWWWWWW what an awful model...

I think we need to make a topic of GWs worst model from a looks point of view (rather than stats or how hard it is to build)... I think that one would be very high up.

Hatred (Infantry). What a fucking pointless senseless rule. So Samus just likes bikes now does he? Is he a literal Hell's Angel that he makes people bite the curb just because they're not Bikers?

And seriously, why do FW continue to let Trish Carden anywhere near anything that's not human sized. have you seen the Carmine Dragon? It only looks good from a single angle. possibly the same with this, but the FW camera dude (as in the guy who thinks taking photo's is limited to a white background and a light by the look of things because of something he read on pinterest once) has failed to pick it up.

By the time Ingethel comes round, they better not fuck that up.



Seriously one of my favourite images of 30K.
