Theory: Rather than an improvement on the normal Space Marines, the Mechanicus has (re)discovered a way to restore the purity of geneseed, making a 10 thousand year stock of not-quite-good-enough suddenly very viable again.

Against this theory is that we're talking about GW and it'd effectively mostly benefit those loyal legion lines that aren't Ultramarines...

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

The Thunder warriors were bigger and stronger than astartes but burnt out and died quickly, maybe somebody found a way to splice them and regular marines together. Or could just be more age of sigmarfication of 40k with uber marines being the storm cast equivalent

The Age of Guillimarines. I like the sound of that.

Curing the Blood Angel ailments would be good.
Perhaps they could also genetically modify the White Scars so that GW actually writes about them once in a blue moon.

It turns out that Chaos has their own band...

˄This. Cadia falls (End Times). Lost primarch rises (Sigmar). New army of supermarines is raised (Stormcasts). Crusade in the name of the Emperor begins (Age of Sigmar). I just hope that further books and novels will be good.

Yes. a bad fluff spin to justify another money grab forcing (in long term) all SM players to rebuy their models in order to field Super-Space Marines aka StormCasts. Sorry about the negativity
The pistol stuff is cool. i just assume you will not get an extra attack in melee by pairing it with a ccw.
All in all i'm changing my mind towards a cautious acceptation of the new system. Not the fluff and the new units...but the rules might be functional into quickening the game. (as now, time issues are my group worst concern)

Exactly. New tactical supermarines have already bigger bolters so sooner or later they will need to get bigger equipment for other units (devs, assault, terminators). And people will buy it and they will be set for decades.

Regarding the starter set, rumours on SM part are this - Captain, Librarian, Tactical, Assault and Devs. Seems pretty weak without vehicles (they have not been rescaled yet?). So I've been wondering, will all those marines will rescaled in starter set or only tactical squad ?

We’ve heard about movement, psychic powers, and shooting. Today we look at the Charge phase.

Charging in Warhammer 40,000 is how you get your units into close combat to use all those awesome looking exotic combat weapons to hack, slash and otherwise obliterate enemy units.



The basic mechanics of this phase are very similar to how they work now. You can select any unit within 12″ as the target of your charge, and your units will move towards them 2D6″.

Enemy units still have a chance to hit the charging unit with overwatch, provided that they are not already in combat. Just as in the current edition, overwatch is a hit on a flat 6 – all pretty familiar so far.

In the current Warhammer 40,000, you need to reach base contact. In the new edition, though, you only need to come within 1″ of an enemy, which in practice means that compared to the current charge range, you get an extra inch.

You also can’t move within 1″ of an enemy you didn’t declare as the target of your charge, so if you want to engage multiple units, you’ll need to brave the overwatch fire of all of them. Overwatch can also be fired multiple times per phase, but as soon as the unit is engaged, they will no longer be able to fire back.



So, the Charge phase keeps most of its current mechanics, with only minor amends.

Tomorrow, we’ll check in on the Fight phase, where we look at the bloody melee in the 41st Millennium.

I'd say it could be that or we could just be seeing new elites. However, I would wager this is the more likely possibility, considering GW is in the business of making money. Now, I don't have a problem with that; that's their job. But if this is the case, the whole, "nah, we won't invalidate your minis," thing was slightly chicken shit, and that I do have a small problem with.

It somewhat begs the question, though: if these will eventually replace the SM range, how will they handle chapter specific ranges?
