Indeed. I am hoping the mesh well with Deathwatch. Heck, I would love to have my Imperial Knight run alongside some SoS and Custodes.

So this has been quite a week for leaks and info. Magnus, rubrics, amazing bloodbowl minis and now this. Mini wise this looks MUCH better than BAC.5 custodes and 5 sisters instead of the dreadnought. I wonder how it plays.
Will it use a version of the BAC rule set or something completely different?

I just hope those MK3 suits aren't all "wolfed up."

Because if so, they're trash to me.

They're not. It's in the description. Only legion-specifics are the two character models.

Thanks gents for the swift reply. I'll probably wait for the MK3 to be sold separate anyways like when GW did that with the Calth mk4.

Then again, I may not as there appear to be 30 marines per box set.

No Mk3 heavy weapons? I was hoping for autocannons.

When Calth first came out you could pick up the tactical squads for £15ish on eBay. Those were the days... haven't looked for a while, they may be that cheap again.

They are about 20$ last I checked - I paid 45$ for one at my FLGS due it being my local game store but, even that is a rip off compared to Ebay prices. This looks to be a good deal.

Fluff says they stay on Terra. Therefore short of fluff change there's no reason to have them up and running around in 40k so short of scenario dealing battle in terra no custodes around.

So either very narrow scenario or fluff change.

Well you could always play Custodes vs Daemons. Battles in the webway?

Just when I thought I was done buying stuff, GW goes and does stuff like this. Taking the three Tactical Squads, the Tartaros Terminators, and buying Alexis Polux from Forgeworld may be in my future. Actually, I will probably get Betrayal at Calth as well to make a good sized HH-Era Imperial Fists army. And the Custodes and Sisters will probably just be for painting fun.

There are none in the pictures. I was hoping for some confirmation of which heavy weapons are on the sprue. Since we already have Mk4 ML and HB I was hoping they'd switch it up. Autocannons would be great, but that might be a long shot given that 40k SM can't take them.

Damn. Oh well. I really like the appearance of this new guy. He will be added to my SW characters. Honestly, a 40K SW player could find a good use for him no matter what (Wolf Lord, Wolf Guard, Lone Wolf).

I am actually reconsidering what legion I may make for my 30K army. I almost want to make SW. It is really between Imperial Fists, Space Wolves, and Salamanders.

Possibly.


Looks to me as if the character is based upon the art -- below -- from the visions book.

which was labeled or perhaps taken to be Bjorn by the fans.

There's a story story by Mr Wraight which deals with Bjorn finding/"borrowing" the claw later

I wouldn't take that to mean anything. Grey Hunters can't take heavy weapons, so depicting them with HW wouldn't make sense. If there will be a heavy weapon in there, it will need to be 40K compatible.

So it looks they want basically everything that was around in 30k to still be around and playable in 40k.

You know what, let's burn this Prospero good and proper. Same price as Silver Tower and no chaff models like the Scuttlings? I'm no Heresy fan, but I've been entertaining he idea of a warband of the dark grey SW being all gritty and wyrd and contrast them with a band of baby blue modern day SW with the ridiculous orange hair, static poses and red weapon handles (and horns!) of GW's red phase.
