Tzeentch Aspiring Sorcerer Riding a Disc






Battle Barge Impossible Fortress

I'm thinking that the Boon of Mutation or whatever spell will not be good if used on Aspiring Sorcerers with only one wound. You already perils all the time, why try to do a Str 4 hit to yourself?

Definitely interested in seeing if there is more to Tzeentch sorcerers than what's been seen in pictures.

It would *appear* as though Aspiring Sorcerers can only select from Tzeentch because it says Tzeentch psykers must take at least one power from their god's discipline. So Aspiring Sorcerers can only have one of those crappy spells?

There is more to this, I bet. If not, we will adapt by taking more Tzeentch Sorcerer HQs who can select the good Telepathy powers like Hallucination.

Wait.... So if A.Sorcerers are only ML:1, then they can't even get Wind of Chaos. Brilliant! -.-

I don't even care who gets what but I wish it were consistent. It's silly that the chief ability of a Cult unit also appears as an Icon ability of another god and the buff ability of an undivided Apostle.


The updated rumor was that the Undivided Apostle grants: Fearless and Furious Charge. The MON Apostles grants FNP. The others were not mentioned.

Well assuming that the Apostle can take terminator armor. Unless their cheap I wouldn't bother with that Fearless Icon. Just attach an appropriately marked character and get Fearless for free.

The infantry models look okay, though the style is pretty exaggerated to my eye, but I don't like the vehicles. Especially the flier, it looks very toylike.

Interesting. The Helbrute apparently rolls on the Crazed table only after suffering a glance/penetrate.

Khorne wins big on Mark/Icon synergy. Furious Charge, Rage, Counterattack and re-roll charge distance.

Well the needed it to balance the lack of psychic powers. Now we just need confirmation of their chain axes.

Doesn't seem like there's any new special characters. I think Alpha Legion will be just fine with this book. Especially if they roll d3 infiltrating units on the warlord traits

Yes, because consulting the rules every time you win a challenge won't slow down the game at all.

A problem will be having to keep a fething notepad to remember who has what rules/ abilities / psychic powers etc. I mean holy crap how many things do I have to select/ roll for to start a game?

In the rumor tracker, I marked off most of the new units that have not been seen in any of the unit lists as well as the special characters. This means ghost21 got hit hard.

Just write it on your army list next to the character/unit in question.
