Spellcrow makes blizzard missile launchers.
Tons cheaper, perfect size and look the same.

Think those tyrants will hurt the sales of spellcrow though.

Ah, I assume shoulder arm means you hold it to your shoulder like a normal rifle type weapon, rather than shoulder mounted.

Wow, too much informations, my head hurts !

So, the Emperor Himself is coming ? I truly think it's plain stupid, almost as that "heavy dread".
However, this thread is pure gold !!! So many things, so much GOOD and WONDERFUL stuff, thanks guys.

The whale transport will look better painted, I'm certain. Very interesting.
And psy-titan !!!!

What do you think about the Custodes ? They look a bit too much (antigrav, flare shield, BS5, 4hp.... for almost a predator with lascannons cost).

I'm very excited for this book, I hope some players will quicky use it against me !

Godardc - the big E was always coming and it was known.
Since this is retelling the entire heresy and all primarchs are being put out its a given.
Would be pointless to work up to the final battle and he's not there.

Oh, I have always thought they were just doing the Primachs, my bad so.
But it seems so strange to play with Big E, on the table.
Very strange era we are living in....

What is your favourite part of Inferno ?
I have to admit that the "Talon of the Emperor" overshadowed the Legions a bit for me.

Heavy dread just seems like a way to get SM to have a "Knight" model.. Pretty cool tho!

The Emperor having stats will be a bit of a letdown I'm sure tho, considering he's the most powerful being in the entire known galaxy. It's like fighting against a chaos god and he can force an entire legion to bow down to him or kill hundreds with a swing of his sword. Nothing short of a god infused Horus should be able to touch him, so stats in a game based on D6s will be woefully inadequate.

Full kits.

I swear I'm not a paid shill for Anvil Industry. I’d be willing if they wanted to pay me.

I hope they sneak some of this stuff into the burning of prospero boardgame, particularly the custodes dreadnought, bolter custodes.

I'd love an excuse to use any of this stuff in a game, but 30k/40k is a step or two too far into the complex zone for me. I guess I just prefer boardgames over the larger scale 30k stuff.

The bionics on the Siege Tyrants really bother me. I never understood why GW leaves bionic parts on Astartes models unarmoured.


Making it blatantly obvious I guess (yes, I know there's other ways of showing that). Plus I imagine if they're on the front lines, they may not get much opportunity to get decent stuff.


Space marines always have access to power armor considering they repair armor all the time. Some books have them put the armor on overtop of the bionic.

You could play small battles / kill team is you are afraid of all the rules. Like 750 pts.

I know it's weird godardc, but keep in mind FW are pretty damn good with rules.
The balance in 30k is far better than GW's other games.

Considering we can have warlords stomping around, the emperor isn't much compared lol.
Primarchs are toned down from their fluff to make them good, but playable.



In regards to inferno, I'm just happy I finally have a playable army.
Went mad buying custodes and (I now know) I own a 5k army.
While it's impulse buying, I love the models.
So finally having rules to them is great.
Am keen on the spear dread though, strength D dreadnought is too good to pass up.

Worst part for me is the big sisters whale/submarine.
Not a fan of it but don't plan on using it anyway.

I don't see any thing that looks like that crazy Vulkite Dune Crawler in the table of contents. (I don't get why it has such a clean look accept for the wired footplate/autocannon things int he front.

The heavy dread isn't that big; the one it's next to is Contemptor size, so it's probably about Leviathan sized, or a little bigger.

Can someone try and find out when the Tyrants are due for release? A rough idea of the month would be fine.

The sword design is less of an issue compared to them holding them backwards.

it clearly says tartaros pattern tactical dread armour (terminator armour) Achean pattern. Its a cut out of the other picture.
And as it is quite prominent it would be interessting if we'll get an upgrade or so. So if anyone could ask tomorrow would be cool!

Yeah, but it's the one from the Contemptor. Maybe tactical Dreadnought is a mistake and it should be Dreadnought, who knows, although actually the writing does specifically mention terminator armour so it won't be that.

The picture is from the Contemptor too, all the detail around the helmet is the same as the Contemptor model.
