GSC is one of the few factions that got significant changes in Chapter Approved so I'd take that as a hint they're not coming any time soon. They are coming though.

Those are some nice points drops. Any big changes to Crisis Teams that you can see, whether unit or weapon wise? Cheerios!

Warlord Traits

1) reroll wounds 1 against Monster or Vehicles
2) your shooting phase, pick a visible enemy unit to your warlord, each time any friendly <sept> unit within 6' of warlord makes a wound roll of 6, add 1 to AP of attack
3) Add 6 to Advance instead of rolling dice.
4) If warlord within 12' of enemy unit at start of shooting phase, you can reroll hits for your warlord until end of phase.
5) reroll hits for warlord, if they have not moved this turn. if they move for any reason, they lose the trait until the start of next turn.
6) warlord can advance and shoot as if he hasn't advanced.

I am really liking the Vior'la and Bork'an sept traits. Crisis teams with 30" plasma rifles and double tapping at 15".

Vior'la I see a wall of fire warriors with a couple fireblades just moving and advancing up the field and drowning everything in S5 shooting

guardians of the covenant 4th company ~ 6000

You can advance and fire all Rapid Fire and Assault weapons without penalty. If you want to be super mobile that would be great.

Not an assault or super short range army, and rapid fire weapons losing rapid fire is a massive penalty.

There should be but I doubt it.

Do Yau Relivs obey the same ruels as everyone elses this time.

Any new Commander options?
Cool idea - GW unlikely to bother

Do the Sept Traits apply to everything? Just for infantry and suits? Do they apply to vehicles?

For example the Sa'Cea one can be very good or just meh based if you can apply it to Hammerheads, Broadsides with Rail Cannons, etc... or no.

Just thought of Bork'an sept trait with a Y'varha. If he gets it he will have a 14" flamer of death

"cackles maniacally"

Also wasn't Kel'shan mentioned in the white dwarf?

Any chance you could tell us what the various suits cost naked? Crisis in particular. Also did they get bs 3+ or are they still 4?

Also pelase share the marketlight table

Thanks a million dude

I thought previous leaks said that the markerlight table wasn't changing?
I'd be curious to know if Jump-shoot-jump or another similar rule came as a strategem for Jetpack units

To be honest the rules for "Fly" are the Jump-shoot-Jump of 40k edition, but I can see a stratagem for that, yeah.

That would be silly, the Riptide isn't a Stormsurge. It should be a high risk, high reward unit that is slightly squishy but mobile and has a lot of firepower if you're willing to take the mortal wound from the Nova Reactor for it.
