Psychic Awakening teaser video up... worldwide event (?) coming Autumn 2019.

Guerrilla Miniature Games reviews all three books (core codex, White Scars, Ultramarines). All secrets revealed!

Spoiler:








edit: White Scars specific preview with new info on doctrines, strategems, wargear, etc.

Spoiler:



The Assault Doctrine already improves the Armour Penetration of Pistols and melee weapons by 1, and when it’s combined with this +1 Damage, you’ll absolutely annihilate even the most durable enemy units.






Khaaaaaaaaaan!

edit: By your command! New incursor unit that denies enemy cover and gets no penalties on ranged shooting while dual wielding like a D&D ranger!

Spoiler:




Impulsor Transport: Flying razorback with a baby void shield! Truly Cawl is blessed by the Machine God!





Alien Power-LoaderInvictor Tactical Warsuit: The most wild west rootinest, tootinest, shootinest redemptor dreadnought 41k will ever see!





You feelin' lucky, you xenos punk? Well, are ya!?!


Infiltrator Squad




Eliminator Squad




Other codex chapters like SW, DA, BA Chapters will also have access to the new units from Codex: Space Marines as follows:
Captain in Phobos Armour
Librarian in Phobos Armour
Lieutenant in Phobos Armour
Eliminator Squad
Incursor Squad
Infiltrator Squad
Suppressor Squad
Invictor Tactical Warsuit
Impulsor
Primaris Repulsor Executioner

The full datasheets and matched play points values for each of these units will soon be available as a free PDF download for each of these Chapters, along with the rules for the Shock Assault ability.

Angels of Death: Combat Doctrines

Combat Doctrines represent the structured way in which adherents of the Codex Astartes overcome any adversary. Veterans of previous editions may remember that the Ultramarines had a form of this ability a number of years back. Now, it doesn’t just apply to them, but to all of the Chapters (and any succes[img]sor Chapters you’ve created) that use the rules from Codex: Space Marines. Here’s how it works…






edit: DIY Chapter creation rules preview.

Looks like you can mix and match as you like in addition to going primogenitor chapter pure ruleswise.

Considering how beefy the current codex is compared with others, I think it'll be fine once they add in the stuff already released for Primaris since the last codex plus what has been hinted at plus what they haven't even mentioned in all likelihood. YMMV.

Giving all Space Marines (Loyalist and Chaos alike) plus one attack on a turn they charge, get charged, or intervene is surprising. Nice to see them actually trying to make Marines better at close combat. Khorne Berzerkers get even nuttier if you can ever actually deliver them to the enemy to do their thing.

Near the end of the SM codex stuff, they talk about creating custom successor chapters with custom abilities from the lists contained. Sounds neat, wonder if it will be for MP or only Open/Narrative.

I mean, I've heard the name and seen him before, but hes gotten a brand new model as a Primaris. It's new to me to see White Scars love I guess.

So squatting of Khan on his bike all but confirmed.

We really didn't need individual codices for each frickin Chapter, and this is bloat going in the same exact direction as 7th. However, with that said, a Chapter creator + better handling of Successors is most welcome to me.

Great stuff overall! Custom chapter traits has been wanted since 4th ed, and it looks like this book structure will be a better way to organize chapter books than each having a full codex.

Shock Assault may get SM melee back out there, but I doubt it'll be enough as they still have massive defensive efficiency problems. But it looks like the chapter traits are getting overhauled by this new system. If there's anything defensive in there, it could do the job. Interested to see if Dreadnoughts will get it.

I'm not crazy about the new walker suit because it seems like its either gonna Usurp the role of dreadnoughts or landspeeders, depending on how its statted. But I'm open to the idea.

Always 1 on the crazed roll.

Thanks for the link. I checked out the page before starting the thread as the video referenced warcom generically at the end but didn't see it. Not sure about the campaign but I'm a bit surprised to see a full on return to 3rd edition's core plus splat style codex releases for marines.

With the stuff that has been announced so far, I'm rather pumped for all of the Primaris Vanguard units. Only question is do I want to paint them up as a Space Wolves Scout Pack or as a Raven Guard drop force...

I was just thinking about a list involving tigurius. Neat.

There are also multipart suppressors and iron hands character to hopefully go with these models. And the captain and librarian from the box set.

6 supplements including ultramarines? Sons of dorn likely one, then hopefully ba, da, wolves, and other chapters merged into the last one.

Confirmed Iron Hands character, Khan, and Tiggy.

Probably a solid bet to assume each new splat will release with a Primaris character.

If the truth can destroy it, then it deserves to be destroyed.

Probably primarisized old character as the other pic is even labeled in the file name as Tigurius. My guess is Kor'sorro Khan but I don't recall if he came with a bird as wargear in old editions let alone the current one.

edit: Yup, it's confirmed to be Kor'sorro Khan in the text.

I guess DAs/BAs/SWs will become supplements like in 3rd edition. That's fine as long as we don't get the situation from 4th where SW still only had that 3rd ed. Supplement and didn't get the goodies from the new SM dex.
