40k rules for cult and Death Watch

Original Post:

Spoiler:
http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2015/11/40k-rumors-deathwatch-vs-guess-who.html

The Deathwatch are coming in 2016, but here’s who they will be fighting! Come on in for details:



A source who spoke to BoLS on condition of anonymity, says:

Opposition force for the Deathwatch in the Boardgame is Tyranids.
Look for Genestealers, Warriors, Lictors.
There is a “box only” Lictor Character.
As with Betrayal at Calth – these are standard 40K models fully usable outside the boardgame.
There is chatter of potential Deathwatch op-for xenos expansions for the boardgame (Orks, etc…)
Recall that the earlier set of info on the boxed game was:

dook for the Deathwatch to arrive in the Grimdark in 2016.
They will make their initial appearance in a boxed boardgame like Execution Force / Betrayal at Calth.
The Deathwatch models are based around a new Deathwatch upgrade sprue.
The sprue will contain items such the distinctive shoulderpads, and specialist equipment and weapons of the Deathwatch.
The Deathwatch sprue will be bundled atop the Sternguard base kit in the boardgame.
The game will allow for you to equip your Killteam’s weapons and equipment in a variety of ways with rules to support them all.
As with Betrayal at Calth – these are standard 40K models fully usable outside the boardgame.
There will be an opposing force the Deathwatch is pitted against with their own models in the box.


Opposing Viewpoints:
If you recall, across 2015, there have been intermittent voices saying that Genestealer Cult was coming. So the big question doing the rounds now is whether not the opposition force will be generic Tyranids, or if GW will turn the volume all the way up to 11 and do Genestealer Cult as multiple rumormongers this past year have said…


~Would you be all over Deathwatch forces that could evolve into a standalone codex later down the road for the Grimdark?

Hahahahahaha KK! You are such a joker. I wouldn't mind being proven wrong but I've been hearing about GS cults since I joined dakka years ago.

We are getting cults right after greatcoat plastic IG.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Deathwatch upgrade sprue for Sternguard, but given that this is BOLS we are talking about, there is probably next to no truth behind it.

Ahhh, BoLs rumors.

Culled from the darkest places of the internet, cobbled together to drive clicks, and only slightly more reliable than peyote induced visions.

Hastings said we'll be getting a Deathwatch vs Genestealer cult back when he told us about the Assassins board game.

He also said they'd each be released later and have their own Harlequins sized codex... iirc.

Obviously, ignore the BoLS specific elements.

Feels like they took the kill team and genestealer cult rumors from more reliable rumor mongers and took a random stab in the dark.

Subscribed just in case. I would have loved something like this a few years back (both when I was building deathwatch squads and running a Deathwatch RPG campaign)... but now I'll just be mildly interested from the sidelines just like with Calth.

Can you confirm they'll have the option of thunderhawk transports (to coincide with that plastic kit)?
Also I've heard there will be plastic greatcoat guard models with options to model them as frateris militia.

Sad Panda said that there was another boardgame coming and gave no specifics.
I checked for his post via the rumor tracker, and here it is:
Oct 2015
True. Deathwatch/Genestealer Cult will almost certainly be the next board game after EF and Calth. But not this year.

So no specifics beyond "it's almost certainly the next board game" and "it's not this year"


That's the problem with these kinds of BOLS rumors. They find someone with a good reputation who has been posting rumors, then they elaborate upon them.
It's like with how Sad Panda stated that Space Wolves are coming out next February. Expect to see BoLS/Naftka start talking about how they've been given "anonymous tips" that Space Wolves will include something like a giant mech-wolf or a plastic Iron Priest or something of that nature.

They take a credible rumor and build upon it, hoping to get clicks on the tail of someone else's rumors.

Well, you know *I* want GCults to happen. And I trust Hastings and Sad Panda. I don't trust BOLS rumors even a little.

However, it is *believable* that GW would just throw some regular Tyranids into the box, or cobble together some infiltrating Tyranids and slap a "Genestealer Cult" label on them. So we'll see.

They need to stop adding in their own speculation when reposting. Just repost the rumour, then add the bs in below, instead of putting it in the repost itself.

Hopefully they use the release of the cult as an excuse to redo the genestealers models. This kit is starting to show its age.

If Genestealer Cult makes a re-appearance I certainly hope they'll be rolling around in their pimpwagons again.

Maybe not in the boardgame, but at least some art or fiction. They had sweet rides back in the day.

What I heard is that they really want to make them happen but want them to be great and there's a small problem with the undercuts for the sleeves but they're working real hard on it and they should be out real soon because Jes promised they're coming.

And the plastic thunderhawk is coming as soon as they can reduce the sprue count a bit so it fits in a box.

And the greatcoat guard can make Valhallans, Steel Legion AND Kreig!

All this is coming for the campaign where the Blood Angels turn to Chaos and the Ultramarines declare independence from the corrupt Imperium.

I suspect a plastic thunderhawk is coming sometime next year... for the likely relaunch of Epic under the revamp Specialist Games/Forgeworld umbrella.

There are better sources for this than those two places - those two places are just up to their usual "repost + add something to enhance clickbaitability" shenanigans.

It's just this time they also happen to be 'right'. More or less.

THOSE. FETHING. SLEEVES. A lot of people don't now this, but the sleeves on the new SOB plastics are actually four-dimensional objects constructed from unobtanium. Jes is working on it, tho.
