As per title to anyone it may interest.

Some minor nods to the new codex in here too.

so their chapter tactics is basicly expert craftsmen combined with whirlwind attack?

not bad, funny thing is I actually pegged that as the best combo to suit their fluff for them so it's nice to know GW agrees with me


and yeah I see they're using "core" a few times for strats. this is proably a nice way to limit the crazy with things like giving double shoot strats to agressors etc

So what is a CORE unit? Is it a new keyword on troops and such?

It could just be "not Gravis, not Phobos"

yeah it's a new keyword.

you can see it on the heavy intercessor sheet here


my guess is it'll MOSTLY apply to troops, but certain troops deemed not to be "core" to the army (such as cultists for CSMs, Grots for Orks) won't have that.

another possiability is that for Marines all infantry dreadnoughts and bikes will get the "core" keyword. and other armies will get varied use of core as GW once again tries to weight certain armies towards certain types of deployment while giving chapter tactics to all.

I'm def curious for more info

No considering Heavy Intercessors have it. I'm guessing infantry, and maybe bikes and dreadnoughts will have it. We know that the new lamespeeder doesn't have it, so probably not vehicles.

Could be done to lessen the impact of auras by only having a select amount of units count as 'Core', and thus only they can benefit from aura.

Maybe the sun is setting on the Era of Auras...


There's also the terminology "Battle Tactic Stratagem". I wonder what that's about?

I like how there is no rule to actually prevent the pure Primaries Chapter from fielding an army made up entirely of Firstborn.

Supposedly there's a screen cap from the codex preview (the one where they flipped through it) that says librarians and chaplains can only buff "core" keyword units. Haven't seen an actual screen shot though, so take with large amounts of .
