Looks like Hybrids and Metamorphs are also OOS, and any combos that include them.

Part of that might be the polar vortex slowing down deliveries etc. My FLGS here in Oregon didn’t get the second wave of GSC stuff until a couple of days ago, because they were stuck in the Midwest due to weather...

Not officially, except for the Start Collecting box. There were rumours that there might be a superheavy digging machine of some kind later this year.

But this thread might be used for the FAQ, presumably next week?


Cool. Thanks. And now I know.

It's possible that the Fragdrill got misconstrued as a "superheavy digging machine".

Wouldn't be overly surprised, but I'm guessing mentions of a Macrorig in the old codex help fuel that one given it appeared in the same context as the lunar buggies.

Or it got conflated with the Ordinatus Mole.

Entirely, though didn't the same source say that several factions were getting superheavies at the same time? That suggests it's not mistaken for the fragdrill.

It's probably not worth worrying about for now though.

You know what surprised me.
Just got the book, and the painted examples of different cults is few and far between, even the art versions of a few there aren’t many.
Most of the other factions get quite a few painted examples in the book, I was hoping for some inspiration via that section. Been holding off starting these guys since Kill Team because of it..

Well there is sure kinda few varieties in color although they did flesh them out. I had even a small giggle when I read about the Behemoid cult.

My paint scheme is sort of based on hazmat suits which when done right is good but it can be troublesome.

Interesting change to APGitM.

Everything else seems fine, and exactly as expected to be clarified.

I honestly expected them to nerf Mental Onslaught a bit so it couldn't auto-kill units anymore. Instead it kinda got buffed a bit.

Vigo. Spain.

They should add much more "Designer's Notes" to the changes in the FAQ's, at least the balance ones, the clarifications don't need one of those.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Top kek so GSC's version of Agents of Vect got changed to 1/game (good) but the DE version remains 4 CP and multiple uses. Now hopefully that will change in the spring FAQ but it brings up an issue with GW's refusal to have common rules for things that are virtually the same. Why is one 1/game and one just got its CP changed?

This is like exactly the problem Warmahordes Mk1 had and why they consolidated the abilities in Mk2. When you have 5 special rules that are the same, and 1 has slightly different wording than the other 4, you're just adding unnecessary (IMHO) bloat.

It's not like people are spending 8 CP on Vect anyway.

Makes Neophytes much more attractive as a troops choice. I quite like that. Didn't mind Acolytes becoming the "go-to", but I like Neophytes better for some reason.

Agreed. Infantry Squads envy their flexibility. The jackal and iconward become the "commanders".

THey did nerf it. Reload the FAQ as they FAQ'd the FAQ (Version numbers are the same tho for maximum confusion!)

No check again - there were two versions that got into the wild. GW confirmed the one without the nerf is correct.

How did they confirm that? It's the FAQ on their official site.

What was the nerf in the old one? The one currently up on their faq page just clarifies that fnp doesn't stop the power from continuing.
