That one came quite a long time after the aforementioned one for the Company Veterans.

The 'original' Dark Angels upgrade frame came with robed bodies, a set of Deathwing Terminator legs, and some other assorted goodies.

I'm expecting more for Aeldari whenever their redone book comes out. They're pretty clearly working on it too, since the "not Alaitoc" Craftworld bit has the same wording(12" or further, unit is counted as in cover) as the Stealthy successor trait for SM(which in and of itself is the not Raven Guard trait, minus the "if in cover and not a vehicle, -1 to be hit" caveat).


Oh yes it's obvious. As clear as mud that!



If you can't figure out that the "Successor Craftworlds" version of Alaitoc having a wording literally copy/pasted from the Successor Chapters version of the Raven Guard trait might be a significant tell that they're working on an updated codex, that's on you.

But hey, keep your snark going.

Thats really, really poor reasoning.

I'm not saying they wont be getting a new codex, a friend of a friend who works at GW says they will be out early next year with about 5 unit releases (remains to be seen how accurate that is), but claiming a single sentence for the build-your-own-craftworld traits in a book where all the Craftworlds rules were quite clearly phoned in by the intern is terrible logic. Either that or the next Craftworlds codex is going to be even worse than the current one.


I agree, that alone is poor reasoning, but it stacks with other info as well as GW's general trends, to suggest an upcoming codex release.


Then again GW doesn't have trend that makes sure alaitoc gets changed. Marines got? So what. People thought every reroll would become cawl style when cawl came yet rerolls are all over the place. And when ork codex came people were 100% sure CA comes with plasma unification to work like orks...how did that pan out in the end?-)

Yeah. the original one is what I was referring to and I know part of it is in the Company Veterans box but that's a shadow of what the box was, which is why I initially said the BT upgrade sprue would go.

Please no. From all the BA characters Mephiston would be the unlikliest to go Primaris. He is already a physical beast and his psychic abilities wouldn't even get enhanced. Why risk death, when you are already ahead? Maybe it was only an impressive new model he's seen. But who am I trying to fool. If GW makes a new Marine it would be a Primaris.

my money says PA2 will be pretty minimal given the sheer number of factions involved, we're pretty sure this'll give the black templars a "supplement" so we know that's gonna be some strats relics warlord traits for them. I can't imagine GW not putting out a primarisized BT character with that. we'll also get a BT upgrade sprue for primaris.

Salamanders and white scars will almost certainly get pure fluff with a specialsit detachment at most, Sisters will likely be mostly fluff (unless GW decides to put out "minor order customization rules" in PA1) Astra Millitarium likewise could get "custom regiment" rules. Chaos will proably get relic, warlord traits and extra strats ala black legion for the involved legions. the mini releases will likely be plastic bezerkers, plastic noise marines, a plastic Lucius, and a chaos sorcerer.

Ultimately the power of an Inquisitor extends as far as he can make it extend

Has there been updated faction list for PA2? OP has just BT vs chaos. Where these salamanders, IG etc are coming from?

Bet the non-marines are there just for filler or early appetizer in order to plead for help when they get slaughtered by the CSM.

I dunno, Templars have a tendency to die in droves in the fluff. Both Armageddon and the Guilliman recovery kerfuffle saw the Templates involved take massive casualties.

They're obviously trying to get their chapter numbers down to reasonable numbers, 5000 non Primaris and god knows how many Primaris marines!

Except even a complete wipe out of a Chapter is not that many bodies.
GW's vague writing tries to make it seem like there are hordes of marines dying like armored Guardsmen, but the number of Marines involved should be a droplet compared to the army groups of IG vs the hordes of cultists and mutants.

They'll probably get some rules, not sure how big the changes are. For all we know its just an updated faction trait

a lot of the time you see battle zones being made up of companies from multiple chapters. Vigilius is a good example, but yeah the losses are a bit silly. Did anyone else notice that GW just casually killed off half the 2nd company of ultramarines in shadowspear?

"Massive casualties" in this context is "one dude survived" across the two battles combined.

The DA upgrade frame, as far as I can find, was never sold in a box. Just via mail-order.
And it was two of the sprues rather than one like the Veterans box has.

You think that every single release will be for Chaos and a chatacter for BT? I think that's.....unlikely.

Leaker has stated that there won't be many/any unit releases with this PA volume.

Those (+warpsmith) are all either finecast units or older than a fair few members of the forum maybe are. I can see them passing over on the zerkers against since they're at least plastic though.

It would be great if true, but that's quite a few kits for one relatively random/multifaction book. Was just curious if BrianDavion knew something we didn't.

There's still that rumor mill picture of what appears to be a ruined aquila reminiscent of one of Grimaldus's servitors, isn't there? Or was that confirmed as being part of some other model?
