Considering I can't see any of the new units on the NZ pre-order and just the books, dice etc, I assume they are coming later then alas? Or could the NZ site just not be fully updated?

Dunno Alpha, but Irbis can't help but try and correct people whenever he makes a post, which makes it amusing how often he's wrong.

I mean, given that this week alone they are re-releasing the Rhino, Razorback and Predator - all things that were "already on sale" - makes me wonder if the "logic and actual arguments" he talks about are things he actually understands, or words he heard once and is just repeating because he thinks they sounded smart. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It is an amazing change!

Also, I could be wrong, but the wording seems to have changed for hit rolls. Says you can re-roll hit rolls in general, rather than just failed hit rolls, like Abaddon. So can re-roll the hit rolls that would be modified into a miss.

Indeed.

Stands for Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt.

No idea how one could use that term in reference to a tabletop game, but whatever.

The Eliminators are very sexy models. Shame about the 3 whole poses, and the fact that they'll no doubt be astronomically priced for 3 whole minis, but they still look ace.

Same. I saw that and immediately decided I will be building one of my Eliminators with a pistol. Hopefully I can do a slung Las Fusil though.

So the arm weapon on the new walker is an autocannon... I liked the old look.

I like stubbers when they’re appropriate. Do not on marines.

All marines should have bolters, so absurd even a single stubber exists .

Cawl's workshop was obviously in a corner of the stubber factory. Whenever he had a prototype that had some free space, he just went to the production line and snagged a few stubbers to use...

it's probably because Stubbers look cool on the tops of tanks.

Not really marine tanks. Maybe it’s because I’m used to the amazing absurdity of a pintle mounted heavy bolter. I suppose that if Knights Make use of stubbers vehicles might as well.

Personally, a pintle SB looks much better than pintle stubber, unless Guard tanks.

Nope, just books, cards, dice (and a couple other gubbins) and special characters (and the non-special LT) this week... as announced in last Sundays standard pre-order article.

DS Turn 1 Pods... I... I don't know how to feel about that as a GSC player.

It'll make them more attractive to use depending on how expensive they are. Of course, this is considering if they're able to DS anywhere else on the board aside from the deployment zone.

Also apparently vehicles get doctrines after all, at least according to the ultramarines preview. Hasn't seen anyone discussing that beforehand.

Dont do too much hand wringing. Drop pods at current price and current rules are the defacto worst vehicle in the game. At a minimum they needed their DECADE spanning rule back.

Yeah, if drop pods stay limited to infantry units other than primaris/terminator/centurion/jump-pack units, then I wouldn't mind seeing how it plays out, since those exceptions seem to be the biggest infantry threats for this update.
