Not sure what happened to the "general" 40k N&R thread, if there is one.

Anyway, War Zone Octarius Book 1 (plus the associated Crusade book, which brings back Planetstrike) goes up for pre-order next Saturday.

The purple Ordo Xenos dice are quite snazzy.

Find out how the Imperium is handling the sudden explosion of violence,** grant your own Tyranids terrifying new synaptic abilities, and marshal the might of Cadia’s remaining regiments in War Zone Octarius Book 1: Rising Tide, available for pre-order on Saturday in hardback or a luxurious collector’s edition.


I'm super intrigued by this bit.

The new synapse system is a very interesting method of using the ability and makes for some neat interactions for Tyranids. Kinda a shame that the dice are Ordos Xenos - would have been nice to have some Tyranid dice to balance up for the kinda lack of any new tyranid models (or finecast being upgraded to plastic ).

The Ordos Xenos dice were, supposedly, to come with the Pariah book and named Inquisitor there. That whole thing got so held up it wasn't even funny.

I do not plan to spend money on campaign books anymore, but I might get that particular book just for the lovely Tyranid cover.

And I think its some of the newer Tyranid art we've had in a while.
Interesting to also note how thin the arms are on it, one thing that I think we might see one day with Tyranids getting a line revamp (which I do not expect for a long time yet) is not so much seeing the design change, but seeing it become more lithe and thin. When you compare Tyranids to a lot of other armies they are vastly more chunky in parts. Which fits well with them, but I could see GW making some much thinner - esp things like gaunts.

This explains a lot, I was curious why Ordo Xenos dice were being sold alongside this when there apparently aren't any rules for Deathwatch or the Inquisition.

The ploy seems to be directed by Inquisitor Kryptmann's action, and he was Ordo Xenos?

He was, but it's cleaning up Kryptmann's mess not anything he actually is involved with.

This is probably a sort of stopgap/beta rules for nids and guard before they get full codex updates.

Not even for Guard...it sounds like it's specifically Cadians.

Hopefully they do an article. I really am interested to know what exactly it is.

Neither are getting books this year, so this is basically Psychic Awakening 2.0 for these armies. Another another update before they get an actual update.

Hoping for an ork army of renown to make either dread Mob or greentide slightly more viable again. Ya I know buggy lists are doing okay but it's the other themes that need a boost.

Army rules updates in a campaign book. Again? As before, even if they make my army amazing, kiss my grits.

No they didn't, but they did mention Cadian vets as a thing that now existed as models.

Knowing GW, the Cadians will be having a lot of valiant last stands, that's all they're good for these days. Actually amazing that with the rate at which GW has them doing those Cadians haven't gone extinct yet.

Will be skipping the campaign book, they're too expensive for what they offer, shame really as the Vigilus books they did a few years ago were so much better.

Will be picking up the Crusade book however.

Heh! Sounds like a very GW thing to do. Now that Cadia got exploded every Cadian death is an irreplaceable loss. The writers sure like stereotyping their forces. It's such an easy shorthand.

Yeah those are the Hive Tyrant version. Tyranid Primes can take regular boneswords.

Quite pumped for Hive Guard with full rerolls:

There's at least two rumour engines that point towards a plastic Lictor and Red Terror.

At least this includes the old stuff?

Plus side, don’t need to cary all the books, good for people who didn’t buy the PA stuff. Down side, for those who did buy it, you pay again for the same stuff taking up page count in a new book.
