It's not a starter, it's a board game, 30K/40K stats won't mean anything for that.

It's not a starter, it's a board game, 30K/40K stats won't mean anything for that.

So they are actually balanced rule sets?

Balanced rules but unbalanced scenarios. Some scenarios may be stacked against one side. More of a challenge and extra bragging rights if you win.

Those Custodes Weapons look amazing.

I... I need to confirm their rules, and if they get a formation. I want to field them with my Deathwatch, because reasons.

Blood Angels, Custodes, Tzeentch, Alpha Legion, Astra Militarum, Deathwatch, Thousand Sons, Imperial Knights, Tau, Genestealer Cult.

I have a problem.

Being contrary for the sake of being contrary doesn't make you unique, it makes you annoying.

Some other things I noticed:

Looks like the SW has both arms attached at the shoulder, so should be easy to modify with normal marine bits. So while a mono-pose HQ, it should be easy to take multiples and kitbash off of them. Looks like the leg/torso might also be fully compatible. Actually, the more I look at the sprue, he looks like a fully multipart model, just with only one option. There are some alignment squares that might need to be shaved off before getting to work swapping parts on him, but that’s about it.

Ahriman looks significantly harder to mod.

On the terminators, it looks like there might be the front of a HF on there. And is that some sort of plasma thing next to the volkite?

SoS look to be bolters/flamer/swords.

Everything looks awesome.

Damn. I was really hoping for a missile launcher.

I imagine a lot of Death Guard players will be irked by the lack of flamer.

We'll find out soon enough eh.



Damn, those are delicious. Gunswords for the Custodes, awesome, and the shoulderpads are their own part so I can bitz order them to make converting Sigmarines from the AoS starter dead easy(assuming you'd ever need more than five Custodes). The Sisters look amazing, I'll have to grab an extra set.

Oddly though what's really impressing me is the sprue design, whoever they have working the CAD software to split the 3d sculpts for production is getting extremely good, I always wondered how they'd work the classic looking MKII/III backpack in plastic.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

So it looks like at long last SM are getting access to the mighty reaper autocannon. Maybe they'll finally be able to compete with their traitorous brethren on an even footing!

Ooh the MKIII legs are split into 2 parts. That should hopefully make it easier to have a variety of poses.

There's also more than one chainsword this time! Hopefully this box can be used to make Despoilers with a small amount of conversion work...

Are the chainswords holstered? That would be pretty handy for modeling bolter + bp + ccw loadouts.

Going by the first pic, that's 11 chainswords per sprue! 1 with hand attached, but another 10 for sticking on backpacks, and easily converted into any closed hand! As someone often short of Chainswords, this is very welcome!

If I could buy it for £95 I would probably get it, even if you took the pre-brexit exchange rate. But $265AUD, eh, that really takes the gloss off it.

Yeah looks like the MKIII loose the 2nd heavy weapon, but gain a whole load of chainswords and holstered bolt pistols. FW really need to get on with releasing jump packs and breacher shields separately after this box comes out. The reaper cannon, Volkite and plasma blastgun for the Terminators are a big surprise. I wonder how compatible the existing FW add ons will be with these kits? The MKIII shouldn't be a problem but the Tartaros sets might need some modifying. Although after double checking the plastic sprue against the FW sets there's not much that they don't cover.

Looks like the SW has a separate shoulder pad. That should make it a lot easier to add him to the Death watch(even if it is the wrong side).
