Al'Rahem would be welcome back if we get a plastic Tallarn kit, and Chenkov for Valhallans.

Well the same argument can be made for Bastone lol

My point was more about how many named characters have been culled from the Guard over the years, I'd challenge anyone to find as many from any other faction. Next closest is the dark eldar and even they haven't lost as many.... yet

Yeah, but I like Bastonne!

I was just having some light-hearted fun with you, putting forth my own "review" on the characters in question.

40k might have "always had historic characters", but they've purged them out with the fact they've advanced the timeline.

They still sell the Gaunt Miniatures. Would be nice to have rules for them and the last chancers.

I would be very surprised if the new Marbo was finecast. Seems like a plastic character release just like all recent character kits. I think the resin Marbo rumor originated here:

So, I talked to my local GW manager about this. He said they got an email stating a rerelease of Marbo in resin (with PDF rules), with its preorder being December 9.

Sounds to me like that's about a rerelease of the old Marbo model in resin (which would make sense if they'd release the old model), but this is clearly a completely new version.

If he is indeed plastic, I think I'll have to get him even if I normally don't want to buy single models for 20 Euros - Marbo's the best. I think the "AAAAAAAAAAAAAA" meme may have to die here though - his new face isn't as shouty...

Cannoness Veridyan was a finecast original last year. Marbo seems more likely to be a limited release like Veridyan than something like "Primaris Chaplain".

Guess that's true. Still, the Warhammer-Community post made no mention of him being limited, so I'm hoping he isnt! (And that he's plastic!)

Definitely going to snatch him up once he drops. I'll probably be painting him up with snow white hair, grey stubble and mud smeared on his arms and maybe face. I really like the idea of old man Marbo.

On the rule side, i think it would be safe to say he'll probably have his posioned bullets and knife, probably deepstrike like the cadillus, MAYBE have himself a demo charge?

He'll be up for preorder on the 16th of December. Release date said December 23rd, so that should be correct unless they do a 2 week preorder period.

If you look behind him it looks like there is a plunger sticking out of a box, but no idea if he will have a demo charge or if he will do mortal wounds via traps in terrain like the Catachan stratagem. Thats my personal guess, that he causes mortal wounds on units in terrain near him.

I'm going with "Improvised Explosives". He comes with rules in the set it says, so he can totally be rocking a demo charge if they want him to.

I know the rules are supposed to be "balanced", however if there is one model out there that deserves to be broken beyond belief, it's this guy.

I want a Marbo that will pop up 6 inches from an enemy warlord, cripple him, and still be enough of a threat that the enemy must devote a turn to killing him.......all for a discount price of well under 100 points.

His 5e rules were awesome. Throw a 5” blast with a max range of 6” after teleporting behind them.

When it worked it was glorious.

Sly Marbo
M WS BS S T A HP SV
8 2+ 2+ 4 4 8 15 6+

His blade is just normal CCW with no special rules.
His gun is assault 2.

- Not ready to die: ignore wounds on a roll of 4+
- Always deals mortal wounds on hitting.
- Any enemy walking in a terrain when Marbo is on the table roll a dice, on 6 they take 3D3 mortal wounds.

Would that be good enough for Marbo?

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.
