Those are plasma cannons or plasma guns? Plasma cannons only inflict one mortal wound on the user, specifically to allow them on vehicles.




Surely models like Titans will use a different sort of Plasma weapon (Plasma Nova Cannon) or something similar that won't insta kill it.

Ya I have seen the points now I'm creeping around that chapter tactics info is not going to pop I'm looking to forward to finding out if GW added some character into Templars.

But thank you for replying that was kind of you.

Well, feth.

They really not gonna let the primaris to use normal marine transports, forcing everyone who wants to field primaris to buy completely new motor pool... I'm not pleased about this...

I friggin called it! I mentioned that Primaris might not get to ride in Rhinos like two weeks ago and got told I was basically crazy for suggesting it.

Gloating aside, it might be the rise of footslogging armies for people who want to run only Primaris for a while. Assuming their new tank is even a transport at all.

There are two plasma cannon weapons. The vehicle one does mortal wounds, the one shown for infantry melts your dude into a puddle of goop.

The front can be either twin heavy bolter, twin multi-melta or missiles. The turret is twin Lascannon, twin assault cannon or twin plasma cannon. As was stated the twin plasma cannon has traditional been the worse choice. It also went from being a 200-250 point flyer to the 389 point flyer. I am not quite sure it deserved to have it's cost doubled.

Luckily their weapons currently appear to be decent range, and their Inceptors can deep strike already.

Blood Angels, Custodes, Tzeentch, Alpha Legion, Astra Militarum, Deathwatch, Thousand Sons, Imperial Knights, Tau, Genestealer Cult.

I have a problem.

Being contrary for the sake of being contrary doesn't make you unique, it makes you annoying.

I don't know of a good solution. The other way people would be complaining that Primaris shouldn't fit in them.

Nithing but the points so far. Helbretch and Pedro are tied in points costs and are the priciest characters shy of the big Ultramarine ones like Calgar. No signs of leaks or rules there though.

Interestingly enough, against Quantum Shield damage D3 and D6 have exactly the same expected value at 1.56 wounds. Damage 2 is marginally better at expected value of 1.67 wounds. That being said, this is perfect example of how expected value does not tell the whole truth because D3 and 2 have zero change of killing a Barge that has 4 wounds left but they are more reliable at killing a Barge that has one or two wounds left.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

Oh agreed that their wargear is offsetting the slogging a fair bit. That and being 2 wound guys.

That said, until the update rules for them drops with their kits they'll be left a bit lopsided in terms of options being forced into MSUs without options.

Some more stuff i can make out of the necron spoilers.

The flayers weapon hits at S:User AP- D1. Reroll to wound.
Scarabs weapon hits at S:User AP- D1. Always wounds on 5+ or better.

Living metal is indeed 1 wounds recovered per turn (1d3 with amulet)

Death gaze of C'than is Assault D6 wounds on 2+ AP-4 d3 damage (nasty!). Against vehicles it wounds on 6+.

Tachion arrow is range 120" S10 AP-5 D6 damage.

Doomsday weapon has 2 profiles:

- Low power: range 24" heavy d3 S8 AP-2 Damage D3
- High power: range 72"heavy d3 S10 AP-5 Damage D6. Can be fired only if you didn't move. When firing at a unit with 10 or more models, it becomes heavy d6,

Sinaptic disgregator(?) is a classic sniper with S4 no AP and mortal wound on 6 to wound.

They could have taken two slots. Besides, it's not like the normal marines would fit either.

They really should have made the drop pods state they could fit 10 wounds worth of infantry. That alone would have fixed the issue.


You could use a drop pod for 3 Paladins, 5 Primaris or 10 Regular space marines. 1 Dreadnought would take up a whole drop pod.

They want to sell marines to people that have full (and maybe multiple) marine armies already.

Allowing them to reuse old transports seems a bad way to sell new transports to them

They could have, but chose not to. I mean they cold have done a LOT of things, but chose not to. Let's not get derailed into what could have been done but focus on what is for now. We can always take up petitioning GW to change things after we have some games in and see if there really is a problem with the set up or not.

But they don't want Primaris to use legacy Marine gear. They will get better Primaris™ gear made by Cawl many many hands in the future.

Bit of a bummer on the scarab bolters. The exalted ability is the best news i'll read all day. I'm notorious for rolling 1s.
