Not Assassins. Fortifications.

But you can add an Assassin via the strat.


Oh right, fortifications.

So an Execution Force would break doctrines, but using the 2cp strat to take 1 would not?
Correct, since it's not part of your army list.

I'm pretty sure, at least-obviously I don't have the Dex yet.

Correct. There is also some other unaligned BSF models that no one uses.

If you don't take Tigurius then it might benefit to be able to keep a Callidus around.

There was a sneaky little change to the Infiltrators. Now they can replace an Infiltrator with the Helix Adept or Comms Array rather than have to include them as a 6th member of the squad. So if you want to run smaller squads (I do), you can.

Yeah that's an interesting point.

I can't really see it clear enough, but it looks like the comms array is 10 points thus making him the same cost as a Helix Adept.

The GMG guys did a video review and read the <CHAPTER> section. I banged my head on my desk. They updated the previous (Cannot choose DA/BA/DW/ETC) stuff in a book they've said is to be used for all those non-codex chapters. I'd like to assume GW had a blurb before or immediately after this with an exception for the non-codex chapters to use the book and select DA/BA/ETC for their <CHAPTER> but I'm not counting on it.

I haven't seen a review yet that didn't flip through that faster than a parent sick of reading Cat In The Hat to their toddler. You'll have to wait until you get one in your hands to check the fluff. I expect there to be fluff new to Codex SM, but I also wouldn't be surprised if most of the new to Codex fluff was in the Vigilus/Phobos books. I expect the real avalanche of Fluff to come in the Codex Supplements for the non-UM-But-Still-Codex chapters. I expect to see a lot of fluff for Imperial Fists, Salamanders, Iron Hands, and so on now that they get their own book.

looking at the reviews sounds like there is definatly some new fluff, (likely how primaris fit into the orginization will be expanded on) looking forward to that.

Probably not, but we'll have to wait and see.

I'm thinking about Scout Snipers with Camo Cloaks from the Ravenguard as well.. -1 to hit 2+ save character targeting gits... ick.

They got a durability boost from what may have been an across the board - or nearly so I'm wondering if Calgar got it, or if they skipped him accidentally or on purpose - Gravis Armor statline boost. Price wise, the Inceptors probably were pretty close to correct. Squad Size is an issue, it's far too easy to get tempted into suicide squad'ing them as a deep striking throw away.

Thik maybe for the bolt options, but the plasma ones were close to 58 points I think and if you overcharge and roll a 1 they die

Somewhere close to 45-50pts id think would be fair

So don't overcharge. Or give them support to reroll those 1's. Drop a 1.0 Captain and Lieutenant in 1.0 Jump Packs with them and you've got reroll auras, and a couple smash characters to finish off anything they miss with shooting and impact hits.

I have done this, but not overcharging defeats the point and also you can get units such as Ravenwing knights for 20 pts cheaper

GW has already stated there will be an FAQ at the time of Codex release to allow you to use all those Space Marines goodies and add Shock Assault for the non-Codex Astartes.

That is amazing news. It is about time they fixed the Vindicator.

So good news for CF/IF aggressors i guess... unmodified 6's cause 2 hits with "bolt weapons", their melee profile meets that criteria.

It is, but only against 5 or more models. Now it pumps out 3.5 lascannon+ shots for 125 and T8.

If you can get linebreaker off it's a steal.
