kinda depressing scenery. they might even want 30 € for that shit. I could (and will) do better with some plasticard, rhino bits and wooden or plastic pipes. I was really hoping for something better. However the rules are cool. I might have found my new barricade of choice. Goodnight aegis, welcome relay pipes!

Tyranid players are either going to hate this or turn it into the Maginot-relay-pipes.

Yeah nice piece to use as blocking terrain, but you would want to be holding it with meq, as anything less would easily go up in flames quite easily. Not for me but I can see a lot of people getting it to park on a flank or in front of an objective

I just want it because it looks cool. It's nice that GW is making rules for scenery like this (and all the other buildings they produce) but I have never once remembered or wanted to apply them (or the rules for Mysterious Objectives, for that matter). GW makes some fine scenery though, coming out in time for my terrain build for a bigger board!

I am generally surprised that this finally saw a model released. I was sure that GW would abandon trying to make models for stronghold assault related buildings. I mean look at what happened to the illogically limited release of the void shield generator.

Still I am generally glad to see a actual model for the pipeline despite the obvious fact that this was one of the easier buildings to proxy.

are we going to say something about this???



old box of the void shield gen...it shows the "promethium ipes"

i guess that we have been given a "new model"...in truth a rehashed piece of an old model...

Cultist blob with flamers says hello!
There are so much more efficient ways to get flamers in your lists... astra militarum are only the tip of the iceberg. I mean, Chaos (CSM and Daemons) already have 2/3rds of the Torrent flamers in the game, and many of those aren't locked in place to rearward in your deployment zone... as well as being AP3 (Baleflamer, BBoS, Pink Fire of Tzeentch) or AP4 at worst (Baleful Torrent).

So yeah, we already have highly mobile, lower AP torrent flamers--we're not the ones who benefit from this piece of terrain the most compared to, say, an Astra Militarum gunline with a 5-squad blob that has flamers, plus a SWS and PCS or two kitted out with them flames as well.

^ he's the Chapter Master from the new Ultra-Skull chapter, isn't he?
Yeah, he goes by the name Skullvar Von Skelington, Hoarder of Skulls so Khorne-can't-have-any-more.

Bring on renegade infantry squads from IA:13...
30pts for 10, 3 points per additional model. 5pts to upgrade to a flamer for 1 in every 5 models in a unit.
So base cost for 10 guys with 2 flamers is 40pts and add on 20pts per additional 5 guys inc 1 flamer.
You can also give them a heavy weapon for every 10 of them but that might not be great with starting BS of 2, though you can upgrade that.
Max squad size is 20, but you can buy a min/max of 3-5 units as 1 troop choice.

I love how making combos with this is springing up now when the rules have been out for ages and it's by far the easiest Fortification to proxy/convert...

And for all you Chaos scum with your cute little Flamers, Purgation Squad with 4x Incinerators is the true path.

EDIT: Salamanders players will be pleased, they might get to use their re-roll saves against Flamer weapons more than once in every ten games!

As nice as this looks i've got to agree with @neferhet I feel like this would be a waste of money for people as you could easily go and get more materials and build several for what GW is going to be charging for this. and the rules for this has been out for years with absolutely no change from what i can see. normally id say shut up and take my money but in this case... Nah, but thanks for trying.
