Man I'm still salty about the White Scars... they are such a unique Legion with a super distinct aesthetic. I was looking so much forward to them being one of my fav legions since "Scars" and... they look more vanilla then the fracking Ultramarines. A Tartaros pattern Termi unit which just has Glaives and nothing more and the golden Keshig who are just normal bikers with lances... wow how amazing. They couldn't even give them the Bullock patern from the books?

I don't know if I agree - I kind of like their no-nonsense attitude and keeping the armor utilitarian instead of festooning it with junk. I also feel you're a bit unfair to Termies, not only chest and leg decoration is plenty characterful, the belt armor plates are among the nicest unique details in the whole FW range.

As for Bullocks, I don't see the problem. GW Dawneagle Jetbikes look very similar, all you need to do is replacing the torso of the Custode with Scar one (you can even keep arms and legs, WS art has plenty of SM with leather gloves/boots) and presto, you have Bullocks for half the price of FW junk...

To be perfectly fair, while FW did indeed peed all over Ultramarine range, you at least have rules for them, and 'roman-ish' bits are easy to come by (if only from multiple plastic upgrade sprues GW sells). If anything, Blood Angels have it even worse because they already have 3 kits that are supposed to be HH era relics, very cheap ones at that compared to FW resin, representing their most important units/characters from the books, yet they continuously get middle finger by not getting any rules for them so they could actually be used. Sure, I suppose you can field them as generic units, but it's like FW pretended 'Armless and Justaerin didn't exist or played any role in HH and told you to use generic praetor and termies just to deny GW sales...

New GW job advert

https://jobs.games-workshop.com/search-and-apply/lead-content-writer-horus-heresy-nottingham-uk

Do you eat, sleep and breathe the Horus Heresy? Would writing and coordinating books and other written material based on Mankind’s galaxy-spanning civil war be your dream job?

If so, we are looking for an excellent communicator with a high standard of English and an in-depth knowledge of all-things Horus Heresy to not only write rules and background for our Horus Heresy game system, but also to take the lead in coordinating writing projects for the range. Having already had your work professionally published will be beneficial when applying for this role.

You will be a part of our in-house Horus Heresy Writing team based at our Nottingham HQ. As well as writing content for our books, you will coordinate writing projects from start to finish. This will include not just books but also content required for promotional purposes, packaging, events, etc, ensuring that the work is done to schedule and maintains our high-quality standards. You will also promote the Horus Heresy range at select events and on GW social media.

We know that enthusiastically delivering consistent, accurate and error-free products to deadline and being the go-to person for the team is what makes this job hard.


I guess they may have internal candidates in mind? but maybe nobody there wants to do it and are busy on other stuff like the specialist games

That... doesn't bode well. That sounds like, what, a half-dozen roles and probably best for 2-3 people? Seems like a really intense workload, and a fairly high level of expectation. Even if I were qualified, I wouldn't touch that job with a 10' pole.

I think its a good idea, but to me Bobby G is less yelly, and practical enough to wear a helmet that actually has all the stuff Space Marine helmets have.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Every time I see the revised version, I really wish they'd just upped the size of the single "barrel" version rather than doubling it up. Looks derpy. The regular Acastus can pull off the twin barrels because of its big chonk shoulders.

That gun design is ugly as sin to begin with no matter how hard they try. Couple with the pivoting arm. Leviathan Dread have very cool gun design, maybe they should try upscale some of those gun if they ran out of idea.

Althought, Gameplay wise that gun would be a beast once it's in AT.

Honestly as a long time knights player in 30k, I would NEVER field this unit.
Sure turn 1 you "May" get the 7in sunder ap1 templates however most of the time you are shooting 2 shots at 10/2 5in where as for 20 more points Porphyrion is putting out twice the shots at the same profile -wrecker which is basically useless.
And if you ever need to shoot just past your own toes you lose your ap2, the mortar is cool and all but the primary weapon profile makes this thing DOA for me, this seems more like a long range anti infantry platform.

That standing I wish the armour set was compatible with the normal Porphyrion.

Looky Likey

I'm obviously in a minority here, I quite like mine but I agree the arms should have been more like the Poly than the regular knights.

The rules work best on large tables played length ways, two 7" S10 AP1 shots for a couple of turns is going to hurt. While wrecker is very situational sunder for that 7" template is pretty amazing when combined with ordinance and twin linked, you should always be wounding whatever you hit and twice if you desire it. On the other hand the mortar is just not very good, 3 small blast templates doesn't really do much at AP4, always seems pointless having fleshbane and a AP coupled together as anything I actually want to wound for the rad-phage will have a 2+ or at worst a 3+. It needs a larger blast template to generate more wounds and have a greater chance of forcing a failed save.

Obviously on a smaller table, particularly playing width ways you are going to get one good turn in if you are lucky. I agree the Poly is better, but I think the Poly is still under costed in 30k. Every time I use mine in 30k it is the Knight of the game and not by a small margin.

Based on what we've seen for AT I'm expecting another couple of weapons options for the Acastus chassis, particularly interested in what the gravaton option will look like in 30k.

They could be just adding another. Or perhaps they are replacing one. Just have to make a good hire and they'd carry on okay.

HOWEVER...this is why l laugh when they talk about 20-something black books. It's *ludicrous* to think that's achievable given the amount of changes that will take place (staff, management, business plans, etc) over the 15(?) years it'll take to produce them. There's no way that they can't know that. Forge World as we know it might not exist in 3 years, let alone 15.
