It was said on the recent live stream that Orlocks and gang war 2 are coming in February.


So it's probably preorder on last week of Feb and release on March.

Are the Genestealer rules in that next book or are we expecting them sooner than that?

Yeah that doesn't really work for me, can someone tell them I need them out by the second week of January if not sooner? Thanks.

January WD has a new mission rules.

January 2018 WD is a good issue with some proper content (2 pages of rules for Necromunda, 4 page-scenario Warhammer Quest Hammerhal, 6 pages Lord of the Rings, a 4-page conversion guide for Tau buildings, lots of painting guides) - a recommended purchase

The mission

Doesn’t look like they are in next months either. Reports a few pages back hinted that at least one of them would be released around the same time as the next Gang Wars.

The rules for cults will release in 2nd quarter of 2018, before or during summer.

Is that calendar 2018 (1nd quarter being Apr-Jun) or financial (1st quarter being Jul-Sep)?

If you bought the models based on a vague promise of "next year", then you've got two options; return them ort sell them on and use the money for something else, or hold onto them. It's not like the plastic will go off.

I'm a bit disappointed that the loincloths are molded onto the legs. I have always hated that look and was hoping it would be easy to build them without. Oh well. Everything else about them is pretty awesome.

So that's 4 Autoguns, 6 Shotguns, 2 Grappling Hook Launchers, 2 Heavy Stubbers, 6 Knife arms, 6 Autopistols, 2 Bionic Arm thingies, 8 Stubguns and 2 'something' pistols per box.

No grenade launchers? That's odd. Do the Orlocks not get them or something?

The “something” pistol might be a sawn-off shotgun — it’s a very “biker” type weapon.
But I’m not sure how you’d represent that in the rules… super short range, obviously maybe a low strength, good hit bonus at short range, and the flechette rule?
Anyway the other option is an Orlock laspistol; it doesn’t seem to have an ejection port or a magazine so that stubby thing sticking out the bottom could well be a cylindrical battery.

They should be really easy to turn into Western-style gunslingers, too. Cowboy hats and dusters and maybe some Skitarii rifles and they're a great posse for the plastic Inquisitor lady.

The 1 hand long gun is Sawn off shotgun.

The Power Fist is Servo Claw.

I don't know why they even include so many Stub guns, they're cheap but not much cheaper than an Auto or Laspistol, you can't even sell or replace them for non-champ/leader now so you'll be stuck with an inferior gun for throughout the campaign.

It would be great if they have a holstered Stub-gun bit to have the extra space for some more exotic weapon, like a Bolter, or Bolt pistol perharp. Dual wielding bolt pistol champion is infinitely cooler than dual wielding stub gun Juve.

That would be great. I was just thinking of how cool it would be to convert a dude to look like Mad Max. Maybe give someone a chainsword or something to look like Ashley Williams while I'm at it. Or duel wield shotguns for a Caleb expy. The conversion possibilities are endless.
I can see it being something like a shotgun pistol; basically a shorter range shotgun that goes in the pistol slot.

I think they are pushing the Orlocks to be more of a close quarters / melee faction.
Hence the brawn skill set instead of shooting, which is more for resilience / minor cqc buffs.
Then again, they also have savant, which helps out with shooting as well so idk.

It would certainly explain why there are more shotguns and pistols than autoguns.

What ever it is, its on page 5. Also, by psychic trepanation do they mean that a psychic will telekinetically make a hole on your head, or they'll make a hole in your head and do psychic stuff?

I did make out the first word of what's behind the tape, and it appears to say Dramatis. Couldn't make out the second word, but I'm going to guess its Personae.
Going by the format of the rest of the entries, it seems everything under it goes under it.
So this Yar Umbra bloke is a Dramatis Personae.
