Warhammer community just released a video previewing the next white dwarf. If you watch the video carefully you can see it has rules for AOS skirmish, kroot killteams and a index Astartes about crimson fists including what looks like some new rules. I took a couple of screeenshots. The video moves very fast so they are blurry.

It appears the Crimson Fists are the first of the new Index Astartes articles promised in the December issue preview pages then?

As a subscriber I'm also looking forward to the plain covers. SFX magazine does the same for subscribers.

The plain covers look like they could be very neat; a simple thing for GW to offer and yet really nice for subscribers and I bet it wil net them a few more

I can't make out a single thing on that Kroot Kill Teams page, but I assume it's not gunna be new models and will just be tactics and rules. Still cool though. Anyone have any idea what those tactics say?

Certainly one can make out the three unit options: Carnivores, Hounds and Krootox Riders (hopefully w/ the krootox!).

Blackstone Fortress came with a character leader as well so a few options at least.

I wonder if they'll dust off the old Anghkor Prok mold for this, since while it's old, so are the other kroot molds too and all the kroot stuff's webstore exclusive anyway.

Well, I am definitely up for more options for my Crimson Fists. More Warlord Traits will be good, since their current one is trash.

I am very much in favor of kroot kill teams, apart from being baffled that they weren't included in the first place.

realism is a lie

Hopefully stuff that is both fluffy and strong (not broken, strong.). A better Warlord Trait for Pedro would be nice too(he had Iron Resolve in 7e, which fit him much better than his current one). And hopefully nothing that has to do with damaging buildings. A reworked Bolter Drill (one that doesn't generate extra shots, but extra hits) would be a great place to start.

All I know is that I have been hard at work building my Primaris Crimson Fists (I am down to just Pedro, a squad of Tartaros Terminators, and some Devastators for regular Marines), so hopefully the content is usable for them.

Awesome, more rules in random places. They just said they didn't want 8th to turn into the disaster 8th was.

They just released chapter approved, lol..

SoB will undoubtedly get rules at the moment the new plastic kits are released. So soon, meaning sometime in the next year. I imagine that they'll just release the rules online as well since it's such a big faction.

Well I meant before the new models, same as we got an early beta codex in the CA before the true release.
I think that most probably it will be published first in white dwarf, then the FAQed rules will be released in pdf so people can complain about having been forced to buy the WD for content that's now free, and then it will be included in the kill team 2019 compendium so that people can complain about being force to buy again content they already bought.

Yeah. People are so entitled nowadays.

Our local Crimson Fists player will likely be very excited.

So Crimson Fists get the good Specialist battalion, then mini codex, and Imperial Fists get a useless Specialist battalion and gets to keep the boring Chapter Trait and relic.
Does it makes sense to you? Imperial Fists are the First Founding chapter, they should be pushed more.

Crimson Fists may not be first founding, but they predate the importance of Imperial Fists a long ways. They were one of the first Space Marine chapters heavily featured in art, etc. The now-famous artwork of the RT book, etc.

The problem for GW is balancing the desire to keep rules together in there respective books and putting content in WD that makes people want to buy it. That said I would not be shocked to see the these rules show up in dedicated books for there respective systems in the future. If not, or until then its a problem that's easily solved with a steady hand and a device with a decent camera

I'm still baffled at the removal of the digital option and going print only.

Its the opposite of the entire industry, and as much as I would find value in the magazine most months, especially with rules, I don't want to find space to store them all.

Digital is perfect for rules add-ons because its with you without carrying a dozen extra books or magazines.

Which wouldn't be a problem if they were digital, and I suspect you knew that before you posted.

Not anymore, they aren't. In fact, you can argue they are now fourth founding Chapter
