Honestly if they make more to this I would enjoy such an idea.

But for me the biggest draw is playing people without needing a million things to start it up. One box of troops and you're good to go is a big selling point to get people to start 40k.

That's kind of odd. In the group I'm playing with, we've already added a bunch of units for the factions we've already seen. This isn't base 40k, where you're going to be playing lots of pickup games with strangers, it's a campaign-style Necromunda/Killteam game. The most popular rules for Killteam are already ENTIRELY homebrew.

The biggest lingering question I have is Special Operatives: Where are their points costs? How do you build them into your gang, and how many can you have? Obviously a Scourge is not going to be anywhere near as powerful as a Haemonculus or Succubus, so I'm assuming they have costs...

Also, if we're looking at the stuff they're adding - the wych rules do seem to have rules for all the equipment that comes in the box but doesn't have rules. Special pistol ammo, poisoned knives, mirrormask, chain flail, all that stuff doesn't have rules in basic 40k.

Anybody know what the ork list is like?

I swear I'm not a paid shill for Anvil Industry. I’d be willing if they wanted to pay me.

We've seen their equipment in the quick reference. Looks like Ork boyz, gretchins, Nob leader, and Mek, Flash Git, and maybe Runtherd as specialists? Grabba stikk and squig hound are in there.

If your group allows for homebrew units, there's rules enough to put in almost all basic boyz and nobz based special ork units in.

Well done, GW. For including rules for everything that already comes in the same kit as the unit in the first place.

Alas, in my local area, we'll probably have a single officially sponsored Shadow War League at the local GW, and maybe some store-official leagues at the independents. Meaning either no homebrew at all or lots of begging. Kan? If I summoned you, any word on that?

I do think it worth mentioning that there is supposed to actually be a kit for independent shops relating to leagues or something like that...so a lot of the issues might be addressed there.

Also, homebrew happens a bit in stuff related to our local GW. AoS we had to wing it with point values for some stuff that didn't get points or Allegiance Abilities etc for those that didn't get them either.

From a song from the younger generation, but the scenarios seem pretty sweet. My FLGS will probably need to invest in some terrain for this game, but it will definitely pave the road for what's to come. Praying it'll be fun

Not sure if anyone has posted these but I was at my FLGS and they had the rule book. I was so excited when I saw these scouts and thought they would be in the box! Sadly they do not seem to be and if its a conversion its pretty amazing they did perfect job on all 5 scouts. It is strange if they're conversions that pics of the scouts with respirators are all over the book and other materials.

That's a head from the Biker Scout box, if I remember right.

Maybe they took that head chopped the other heads and put them together?

Man, I have not been so excited about 40k for years. I really hope they put out a whole book of lists. It would be tough for me not to just buy a kit to make every one of them. Just picked up Skitarii and GS cultists specifcially for this after resisting them both for a while.

If it were an updated Scout kit, they'd be flagging it as such in WD.

Also--I think it's just a staff member's army. I remember seeing those back when the Scouts first got updated. Guy had a gorgeous Blood Raven army with all of his Scouts done up like that for Cities of Death.

Still would have mentioned it in the product info, if only as a selling point.

they are so perfect looks molded. Maybe the scouts in the new box will have that head option becuase thats the same head on all 5 scouts. I agree they would be flaunting it but maybe not if it is just one or two new heads.

is anything else on the page a conversion?

seems out of character for GW to "advertise" conversions without specifically calling them out as conversions

They flaunted it with the Genestealer Cult upgrade sprue and the Deathwatch upgrade sprue.

They're converted. You can't see the sides in those photos, but in the actual photos from WD ages ago you could see that he did a slight bit of GS work to make the straps fit.
