Primaris upgrade. On a 1 the character just dies. That's some Warhammer Quest levels of "feth you" right there.

Love it.

Quest For Atonement is the perfect blend of hilariously fluffy yet also mechanically interesting. It's precisely the sort of niche narrative tool that I had hoped Crusade would start leaning into for the individual Codex level installments.

You must be new here.

Most reasonable people would apply common sense to such a situation. But this is Dakka Dakka, home to people who claimed you couldn't fire Assault weapons after Advancing.


Is the fault with players that can read english or gw writers who are incapable of writing it?

Have we seen GW do bases like that before? That's some aftermarket resin level of debris there. Aren't their studio bases usually clean except for a few rocks and tufts?

Well right now I'd say more players than GW at present. So far things like "all shots within 18 inches are doubled" is pretty easy to understand. It's just players wishing it was "all shots within 18 inches are doubled and all ranges increased to 18inches). The language GW used was very clear, it doesn't really need clarification. The interaction players are thinking of just hasn't got any basis to happen.

Reanimation Protocols on its first day being exposed had the same thing with people thinking you rolled at all kinds of odd moments.


I'm fully willing to say that GW needs it write better, but so far the Necrons have been written well; one part is on players to read what is written.

- Honor the Chapter stratagem is now restricted to assault intercessors only
-There's a new stratagem that states: if your warlord is alive in the command phase of your turn, select a unit (dont think its restricted to core) and that unit is treated as having all doctrines active.
- Thunder hammers are a flat 20pts regardless if equipped to a character or non-character. and now they are -2ap not -3 (3 dmg still)
- Scouts are elites
- Whirlwind bombardment strat stops units in defensive positions from getting that benefit and makes them fight last in the fight phase. 1cp
- Master of sanctity upgrade was either 20 or 25pts (cant remember exactly)
- Chapter master is 40pts and CM picks one unit in the command phase to get full rerolls. The captain reroll 1's aura is active otherwise
- Not all non primaris marines characters are getting the +1 wound too....Centurions remain at 4 wounds. Terminators, bikes etc DID get +1 wound though
- There WERE army restrictions for the 3 odd chapters in the book (DA SW DW)
- Wisdom of the Ancients strat was changed to have 2 options for the aura provided (either reroll 1s to hit or reroll 1s to wound)
- Deathwatch seems to have lost special ammo and cant take bike squads oddly
- Hellfire stratagem is back but it also deals 2d3 dmg to monsters
- Flakk missiles deals 2d3 dmg to fliers
- There werent many "new" strats iirc
- The Reaper variant of the new floaty tank came to 230pts (without useless upgrades)
- Theres a melta bomb stratagem that deals 2d3 MW in CC (to a vehicle or monster), 1 or 2 cp, unsure
- The Hammer of Wrath stratagem got a bit of a rework and improved quite a bit I think MWs dealt by rolling equal to or higher than enemy units toughness. Number of dice equal to number of models in engagement range (i think)
- Outriders are 3 per unit Erads and BGVs are 3-6
- BGVs and Erads are 35pts and 40pts respectively
- There was a strat for reuplsors to fall back and shoot at full BS
- The SM-only secondary objectives were all awful
- Incursors lost their combat knives exploding on 6s to hit in cc (are ap-1)
- Blood Angel assault squads cant take meltaguns anymore
- More stuff that I thought seem to have the CORE keyword. Exmaple of what dont: Centurions and Invictor warsuits
- Transhuman was there and appears to be the same
- There was a strat for phobos units to be put into reserves from the battlefield
- Non codex chapters do appear to get access to all the marine psychic powers and warlord traits and relics
- Speed of the Primarch was mentioned as the Blood Angel- only WL trait in the dex (fight first on wl)
- Only in death does duty end got nerfed can only use it if you havent already fought in the fight phase

Not gonna lie. Those don't really sound like nerfs. A little more restrictive but I feel like it's not going to impact a lot of the current lists. And if bladeguard and eradicators didn't bump in points those are central units. I think we all saw toned down rerolls coming.
