Or, instead of having to add a line to Chaplains by an easily missed addition in the BA codex that would have to be changed by any new DC units or errata that changes what's Core, we could just, you know, give Death Company the Core keyword.

Also, this solution makes DC eligible for self-only prayers.


We've already been over this once, it boils down to whether you consider core to simply a boolean for rules development with no meaning behind it.

Which it basically is, yes. Otherwise vehicles and centurions core, as they're certainly part of a healthy Chapter breakfast, while scouts wouldn't be.

Yup, but it clearly implies different things to different people due to the use of the term and explanation given. I'll consider a general thread to discuss it.

Agree. It's not like Necrons don't have buff that work on, say, Destroyer Cult stuff specifically, despite them not being Core. They already have the Death Company keyword to begin with ... so use it!

Again, that would mean DC dreadnought and characters would also benefit from those buffs, and GW clearly didn't want them to have access to prayers or rerolls.


Seeing gw already uses keywords to exclude...no it wouldn't unless gw wanted to.

I'm actually surprised nobody has complained about BA getting 2 Captains and 4 Lieutenants per detachment (as long as half of them have painted their armour black).

Accusing people of whining is just a particularly lazy way of admitting you have no counter-arguments.

Compromising with evil doesn't make you better than them. It makes you a collaborator.

So, regular Space Marine bikes have gone *poof* from the US webstore, as well as Canada and others. And I don't mean "Out of Stock", I mean -GONE-. They don't appear in a search.

But they still show up on the UK webstore.

As noted, it's a reboxing which gives the product a new SKU making it a new product.

yeah recon reboxing. Thats usualy the trend.

If they are in the codex and have current plastic models I see no reason why they'd stop selling them.

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

As this thread seems to be being used as a general 40k release thread, no matter what the breakaway traitor Death Guard may think ( ) , (and thus this thread should have its title adjusted accordingly), I thought I'd mention that my Sergeant 'Ripper' Jackson just shipped.

I know a lot of people ordered theirs online as they didn't want to go into a store to get one (the only store I could get to was closed on that day as they were moving locations - what timing!), so people may start seeing shipping notices from GW cropping up in their inboxes out of the blue.

My 'Ripper' is coming with a Solitaire, the only Harli mini I don't already own. Now I can actually build my army!

None currently. The speculation is that it will tie in to a set of more releases in January/February alongside the Flayed Ones, Dark Angels, and Kill Team.

Would be weird for a Kill Team starter to include a character--and the rumor is a new Kill Team starter.

I'd be interested to see what the rest of the image it's cropped from is.

Interesting. The Flayed Ones are in there too.

Are there Cryptek profiles missing currently? Could it be one of those?

The chronomancer and psychomancer have not been released yet and we have seen the image for each. The chronomancer has 2 weapon options, so like Sasori mentioned it looks like we finally are seeing the second weapon option for him.

That only leads the control node technomancer as an option not released which this new model may be.

With that big 'shell' on his back like the Technomancer with Canoptek Cloak has, I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's a replacement for the finecast Cryptek (note that my record on guessing what a new model is is very poor... ).

EDIT: Better pic via War of Sigmar:

That's a really cool model. And yay, a new cryptek with legs. Could be the model they're using to replace the current finecast cryptek. He's still on the GW site, but his time is probably coming.

I'd wager if its new then he's replacing the current finecast one as well. I was surprised GW kept that model around considering their general move away from finecast.

That would leave Necrons with only hero characters and the two original Ctan as the only finecast left in their range. Assuming the Ctan get replaced with larger versions like the Void dragon (same as how they made Greater Demons bigger and such) then that could be a long off future date update.

Heroes they can update ad hock slowly over time.
