I'm pretty sure they were talking about the army's special rules, and they will certainly use dice as ressources for Miracles or something.

Whatever their function, I'd have much preferred it if the included dice were not the most basic dice around. Feels very out of place in what's presented as a fancy box.

It does appear there are enough helmeted or bare heads to outfit all basic troopers with either (which makes sense, with those being the only variable parts and the sprues appearing self-contained, i.e. having all parts for specific models). Not many options in the unique sprue though. But at least some spares then, so there is the option to swap the head of the Canoness with bits included in the box for example.

Not sure what the point of a 2 week pre-order period is if the box sells out the same day, but here's hoping they've made a half decent number for a change.

It's like modeling a jet flying sideways.


you mean like nudging the rudder? also how would you accomplish a barrel roll without flying sideways?

I would guess that since they can fly in 360°, it makes sense that their momentum would continue while they reposition their body.

That's a LOT.
Tau for comparison have 25, so does DA (26 if you count "the lion and the wolf"), deamons a mere 19.

I suspect they already have multiple stratagems for every order baked into the codex itself.


Yeah thats a good number - can;t really compare to Marines as would need to add up all those available over ALL the codexes supplements and now PA where they got another load.


1 stratagem card for each subfaction
1 unique stratagem for each subfaction


that brings them down to 24 stratagems, which is inline with what others have


Except my numbers were INCLUDING subfaction stratagems.
And i don't understand what you count. you counted 2 stratagems for each subfaction?
Because AFAIK they don't make cards for the subfactions themselves.


All the Major Orders got specific cards in Appoclaypse - most subfactions get a few - Dark Eldar ones def did - Marines get loads for each and dozens for parent subfaction

The cynic in me says that the Codex is limited edition as it won't contain any pictures of new units 'cause they're not out yet.

You'll only get pics of the new stuff in the actual Codex.

Well they have stated several times its a full codex and its not limited but special art.

What the difference is remains to be seen

Why are there still these weird conspiracies about the codex? It’s pretty explicit that it’s the full proper codex with just a different cover.

Never said it wouldn't have the new units in it, only that it wouldn't have pictures/artwork of them because GW is #SuperSecret about this nonsense.

I mean, GW even says this in that unboxing article:

"If you’re good, and the God-Emperor is watching, we may even show you a sneak preview of these models nearer the time."

How can they provide a sneak peak of something closer to their release if we've already seen them in the Codex?

I assumed that meant closer to the release date of the boxed set - did the SM codex have pics of the unreleased untis?

They mean nearer to the release of the box, precisely to get ahead of them appearing on the internet otherwise.

I'm perfectly fine with this release. I think the models look great (oversized stain glass window notwithstanding) and I'm glad to see things like Archos getting a new lease on life as a plastic kit.

But I started my post before with "the cynic in me". Guess SoB players don't understand that word, having spent years being too jaded at basically everything and complaining about anything and everything that ever happened to their precious armies.

I’d imagine they’ve seeded preview copies to the usual suspects under embargo, so would know anything new would be revealed by them... may as well do a proper GW reveal first!

I'd make a rebuttal of your complaints about your army but you complain so constantly and consistently about every topic that comes up I doubt you have enough time between bouts of whinging to actually have an army.

I'm presuming that the different heads will be on the same sprues, so you will end up with spare heads. Kinda reminds me of the current Space Marine Heroes (or whatever it's called) Japanese thing with the Plague Marines. They've each got a helmeted head and regular head, and any you don't use can be put to use elsewhere. Very good for those who think that Sisters helmets look ace and want to use them everywhere.

And there's a Mistress of Repentance (is that her name). Really nice mini. I wonder how that weirdo on Facebook feels about the Repentia's "agency" now.

The standard Sisters are good, except for the scenic bases. Every flamer girl's gonna be on that rising rubble.

The helmeted and not helmeted options were present in Space Marine Heroes 1 and 2 as well, glad that they appear to have continued that with this box.

Personally I think this box is an OK value proposition, but that is in light of the current Necromunda: Dark Uprising and increased campaign box prices.

I see the £125 broken down as (bear in mind I have priced the minis as monopose plastics):

Codex £25
Data cards: £10
Dice: N/A for those dull things.
Cannonness:£15
Sister Squad £25
Seraphim: £15
Repentia: £15
Arco's: £5 (too cheap, yes but am not keen on them).
Penitent Engine £15.

If you can get it at 20% for £100 then that is not too bad. But as an "army" I do not think the set amounts to a lot of points but is a fair start to something bigger. I just hope they have made enough to satisfy the demand, we shall see...

H.B.M.C the reason people might be calling you out is your frankly rediculous opinion that the limited edition Codex will not be the same Codex the non-limited one will be in regards to content.

You know well and true GW make no difference to content for such things, just fancy cover changes. Bring all incredulous that people will point this out to you. I don't know if you are legit bring serious or purposefully posting bait for replies.

The miracle die left me confused, seems like they needed some hype at the end there. But forgot to read though them for an interesting tidbit.

I may pick this one up at this point, I have thousands of points of sisters. So hopefully the book is a good read and they will get kill team rules out for them.
