So both the talos and cronos cost the same? I thought the cronos was cheaper?


Just took a look at the 10 words you need to stop misspelling and I came across the world a lot and allot.

I always thought there was a word describing "many things/people" in the same place. You cant say "A lot of people live here" because people can not be a lot (like a piece of land), nor can you say "Allot of people live here" since that's grammatically incorrect.

I know I have heard it used many times before, people basically saying "Alot of people live here" meaning "Many people live here".

Meh, what do I know, english is my 5th language...

Alot isn't a real word (the same as irregardless), Allot means to to distribute something- the correct wording is in fact A Lot, as in 'A lot of people live here'.

People that say "Alot" generally do it for 1 (or more) of 5 reasons...

1. Their keyboard is broken.
2. They never finished the 3rd grade.
3. Their father touched them at night.
4. They grew up in a trailer park.
5. They are trolling.

That they would make such a huge mistake in their sales pitch newsletter which is suppose to inform their redshirts about the new DE so they can excite their customers.

I should be getting my codex next week, Im so jealous of everyone who already has it.

I will only be picking up the metal models at launch though and maybe some ravagers later. Im hoping for a Battleforce and if they follow the old one it should contain 10 warriors, 10 wyches, 3 reavers and a raider transport. I need to buy 4-5 of those so it would save some money.

Then again I dont know if there will even be a battleforce, only rumour mentioned is that we might see one for christmas at the earliest.


I have a rules question.

About the beastmasters, they are FA as far as I know, can you take 1 for each FA slot or is it 0-1 FA slot?
I know you can have up to 5 beastmasters in a single FA slot and those enable your beasts.

They say the Cronos is a cheaper version of the Talos, whats the point cost of them? Use firewarrior equivalent if you like :D
1. Beastmasters are no longer 0-1

You're correct in that you can take up to 5 beast masters and each beast master can take 1 of 3 different beasts.

The Razorwing Flocks are a steal if you ask me. You can up to 2 for 1.5 Fire Warriors a piece.

Gluttony: -*nom* *nom* *nom*, statlines are so delicious

Rending

Also one thing that hasn't been mentioned is that 1 beast master can take an Agoniser for 2 Fire Warriors in cost.

2. Chronos Parasite Engine is 8 Fire Warriors

Gluttony: -More statlines! *nom* *nom* *nom*

Monstrous Creature, Power through Pain, Move Through Cover, Fearless, Nightvison.

It has a S 4 AP 3 Template. If the attacks kills a model you can distribute a pain token to a unit within 12 inches of it. Free

18 inch S 3 AP 3 Large Blast. If the attacks kills a model you can distribute a pain token to a unit within 12 inches of it. 2 Fire Warriors in cost.

If a close combat attack kills a model you can distribute a pain token to a unit within 12 inches of it 1 Fire Warrior in cost.

MadCowCrazy slaps Gluttony
MadCowCrazy: -Bad girl! Though statlines are ok to eat since those are´nt allowed...

My question was if you could take 1 beastmaster group for each FA slot? This would be 15 beastmasters in total in 3 different groups. Can you do this? or can you only have 1 group of 5 per army?

Sorry about Gluttony but she does like to eat things not allowed on the site due to us not wanting GW to come about with their cease and disease letters :D

For those that dont know GW doesn´t really like it when you post the stats of their units online, its called "copyright infringement".
I figured I post a short guideline about what you can and can not post.
It´s really simple really, if its something you would need either a codex or the rulebook to understand you can post it, if its something that enables you to use the unit or whatever in a game without owning the codex or rulebook its NOT ok to post it.

Example: A unit is fearless, has scout and slow & purposeful, without reading the rulebook you would not know what this means.

Pink Spheeez Mahreene has a ws/bs/s/t/i/a/ld/+ & ++ of 4, this would not be ok to post since this would allow people to use the PinkSM without buying the codex (GW does like it when you buy their stuff rather than get it for free online).

This is the same reason you can not post points costs for items, units etc but have to use some other arbitrary currency, like the well known Fire Warrior currency used pretty much everywhere to describe points costs of things.

Hope this helps :D
