Also really wondering how grenades and pistols are used in CC now...
yeah..worded this way if i have a pistol and a lascannon in melee i can shoot the lascannon just 'cause i have my trusty boltpistol in my lap

grenades in melee is still a mistery, but pistols is right there. no longer +1 attac for having it, you actually get to SHOOT with it! plasma pistols here i come!

the rest seems pretty well known. cool that the defender decides where to allocate hits!
Also note that if you advanced (run) you can still fire with assault weapons with -1 to hit! This is quite good! a nice addition to right in the face, mid range armies (like chaos!)

I bring you...DETACHMENTS!!
I like those. I can do a full elite or fast attack army! the allied detachment is still there (auxiliar) but will cost you command points for the trouble! Nicely done!

Where does it say I can't take multiple detachments from multiple factions? The auxiliary is not the equivalent for the allied, it's more of a free pick detachment

well said. if comes out that you can take only same faction in an army, then Taudar and such are dead...i doubt this will be the case tough. we still miss 2 detachment (gw said it was 14) and rules for army composition

Yes, but while that's a fantastic boon for my Seraphim, that's the SHOOTING phase, not the FIGHT one!

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

Whew! That’s a lot to take in!
[11:45 am] Folk are getting their first chance to play the new edition now.

We’ve already shown a few of these, earlier in the week, but here are the datasheets for all the models on the demo pods:



And in the demo pod room, they are also lining up to get their photos taken with the Space Marine weapons in front of the green screen. We’re going to replace the green screen with a bit of war zone from the 41st Millennium, and I’m sure we’ll have some of those up here later on.
Another very popular spot this morning is Warhammer TV’s Duncan doing a painting tutorial on one of the new Death Guard models from the Dark Imperium box.


[11:10 am] Up in the Forge World area, there is an awesome Titan dock display, showing the Adeptus Mechanicus getting the massive war machine ready for battle.



[10:50 am] Just had a quick look at the exhibit hall. I was almost immediately drawn in by a game called Doomwheel – it was the giant red button that caught my eye… Had lots of fun driving a Doomwheel over Clanrats and Assassins and collecting warpstone. Definitely, one to check out when it’s released this summer from Katsu Entertainment.
Doomwheel Dawn of War III
Ork from Dawn of War III Giant Terminator Statue

There was also a huge scale Terminator statue and Relic are have joined us, bringing Dawn of War III for everyone to play, and a big ol’ Ork statue. Next I’m off to see what’s going on in the seminars.
[10:25 am] Well, the doors are open and everyone is making their way to the various sections of the venue. I stopped by the demo pod area on the ground floor to see what they’re up to and found the team waiting to run intro games of the new edition of Warhammer 40,000. If you’re with us over the weekend, be sure to stop by and play a game.



[9:45 am] – Good morning and Happy Warhammer Fest day everyone! Sarah here. We’ve arrived at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, and the doors are about to open to the public. There is so much going on, and we’re so excited to see all of you who are coming along.
Of course, you can’t all be here, so I’ll be running this live blog all weekend to keep you up to date with everything coming out of the seminars, tournaments, demo pods, etc, so stay tuned.
To get things started, here is a bit from the programme:

So it looks like plasma guns have 2 fire modes now, one of them slightly less powerful but without a 'gets hot' mechanic.
