So the Cult Neophyte Hybrid Squad is 10 Cadian Shock Troops, a Heavy Weapon Team and the Cult Upgrade sprue: $45 bucks.

Heavy Weapons Teams are normally not individually available, only in groups of 3. So we will look at 3 GSCNHS squads at $135.

Cadian Shock Troops Squad: $29
x3: $87
Cadian Heavy Weapon Team: $39.50
+$87
$126.50

$135 for GSC
$126.50 for AM


So for less than $10 bucks ($8.50) you're getting 3(!) GSC Upgrade Sprues. (<$3 per sprue) That is a damn good deal to me.

-----------------------
GSC Leman Russ Battle Tank: $55
AM Leman Russ Battle Tank: $49.50

So now the sprue costs $5.50; not so great.

-----------------------

GSC Armoured Claw: $55
AM Chimera: $37.25
AM Cadians: $29
AM Total: $66.25

So the Armoured Claw Team is actually CHEAPER than the comparable AM squads! You're getting the GSC Upgrade Sprue for (effectively) NEGATIVE $11.25!

Guess I know what I'm ordering!

I would like to know, is it possible to do an all Stealer army? If so how can it be done? Any special rules?

I find the the armoured claw boxed set (Cadian Neophytes and Chimera) a bit odd as well as it is not an actual named codex entry just a Neophyte squad with added troop transport. Glad that there is a discount on buying the Cadians and Chimera separately though (£25 minus the heavy weapon team+ £22.50 = £47.50, so a nice £12.50 saving straight away).

You're forgetting that the Cult Upgrade sprue is included as well.

In any regards, "Armored Claw" is likely just the name they wanted to give them. When the Cadian and Chimera set was last being sold, it was billed as an "Armored Fist Squad" despite that moniker long since having been gone from the codex.


Am i mis-remembering, or was the "armored fist" bundle $60 USD? It was still saving cash vs buying the chimera and the cadian team seperately. But this for $55 and includes a HWT *and* a GSC upgrade sprue? madness! I will probably get one or two before they stop making them.

Oh, and as a non-guard player i have to ask another dumb question - are the cadian squads supposed to be veterans or platoon squads and is there specific modeling to differentiate the two?

The Cadian Squads are meant to be Platoon Squads or Veteran Squads.

There is no box specific to Veterans.

Heavy Weapons Teams are available by themselves. They're $16 USD, up from the original price of $10 when they released waaaaay back in the day, and Direct Only.

29+16+37.25+13.50=$95.75

The upgrade sprue, if sold separately, would be $13.50(they've done upgrade sprue prices as static no matter the content for Marines, so it would be quite odd to see the price shifted for GSC).
The Deathwatch stuff was sold more or less at cost with the upgrade frames being discounted as well.

ADDITIONALLY, Chimeras do not include Track Guards anymore. That requires you to purchase the "Astra Militarum Tank Accessories" pack which is $15 by itself. Plan accordingly, as it's a Direct Only item.

I'm quietly confident that upgrade sprue will be sold independently though the GW website like the Deathwatch one.

There are so many guard kits that could take advantage of it, seems a bit daft if they didn't.

While demo charges are awesome. I'm not sure for a vehicle at bs3. Any IG player knows how often those scatter back onto the model.

As we hoped, the normal Goliath is open-topped. Seems like a good exchange for the Chimera, you get an assault vehicle and more firing ports, better firepower and that whole ignoring half of the negative vehicle damage results, but you get weaker front armor. Good stuff.

Pretty sure the stuff he deleted was actually correct too. If I'm not mistaken he talked about the Rockgrinder, the Seismic Cannon, etc. Nothing he's said to my memory has been contradicted, he was called out for saying there are no Broodkin but the codex glossary leak has confirmed he was right.

Honestly it's not a matter of whether or not he's trolling. I love thinking about the things i'm going to be able to do with this army and everything so far i've read falls in line with the "hints" given out by the games workshop facebook studio, as well as some lines of text i was able to read in the BOLS teaser video on saturday. The statline and rules for the goliath truck seem pretty legit for it's points cost and yeah 60 for a transport is expensive in dollars but with the cult ambush rule, i can't imagine a force that would need more than 2 or 3 total especially if you're doing larger hordes of cultists. The demo charges rule is pretty cool too. Short range but a heck of a punch. Of course there will be the times when it scatters backwards and blows up the transport that was carrying it, but that's war!

So the only releases on the 15th are the Leman Russ and the chimera bundle. This makes for a very slight release week. On the 8th for comparison we get a new tank, a new clam pack, imperial guard and space marine bundles and a new battle mat. There must be something else coming.
