looks like deathwing will just be an upgrade to units. welcome deathwing primaris whatever the feth.


These are my opinions. This is how I feel. Others may feel differently. This needs to be stated for some reason.

Nice speculation. You have no idea what the limits are to inclusion. Dreads....sure, no problem. Otherwise, I'm sure the list will be restricted, but maybe Aggressors and Hvy Intercessors will be on there (hopefully not)

Thinking about it again, the whole reason for the deathwing existing as a special thing has been removed. Before primaris, chapters had difficulty in fielding superheavy infantry en masse. 2+saves for marines were restricted to terminator and character specific armour. The Dark Angel's were social as they had a massive stock of special armour.

2+armour appears now to.be manufactured readily and deployed wherever and whenever a chapter wants.

So now the Deathwing is just an old boys club used to keep an an embarrassing secret and there is no reason to shackle its organisation ton"inferior" terminator armour. I wonder if this is deliberate due to GW never really figuring out how to do a decent job on superheavy infantry in a game where anti tank weapons are handed out like sweetie.

To be honest, GW get Deathwing right in the last iteration with Inner Circle.

So, it will be both tragic and ironic if this is deliberate an out in place exactly when they get it right.

Dark Angel players know better and are assuming this is just a supplement book, no other models or groundbreaking lore update. The hype for 8th codex was unfounded and I wouldn't get excited for this one (beyond excited for what we already got in the index)


I'd not expect anything big given that GW was so matter of fact in how they handled the biggest news for space wolves in just about forever

Opinions are not facts please don't confuse the two

Looks like, from what the preview has said, that you will be able to put almost any unit in the deathwing going forward

No way its going to.be any unit, probably a selection of a few. My guess is a simple expansion on the strat we already had.
