Just to clarify - the new book is Calth and please, please, tell me it will have Legio Suturvora and Legio Presagius in it?

Not with Calth itself, with the aftermath, but yep - both Legios have a starring role

Just got a reply from Forgeworld and the Warbringer cards and Acastus rules are in GW's lap, as Forgeworld do not sell nor had created those products.

So if its sold on the GW site then any errors(if they have been made) are their responsibility.

I do now wonder if it is a deliberate choice, it seems slightly odd that the cards don't match the supplied weapons, but I notice the artwork of the cards on the Warbringer box show the two carapace weapons. Also, if they intend to release the Belicosa Volcano Carapace weapon as a resin kit then it means the card for it is already available, rather than needing to supply a new card with the weapon kit, whereas the arm Volcano cannon does already have a card available.

That is a very good point you make there Travis. As illogical as it seems, its certainly not a bad thing.

In light of GW printing the wrong card, this just in




Apocalypse Missile : was 10 shot, now 5

Paired Laser Blaster : was -1 long range, now +1

This is even a bigger error than the warbringer card, since this one is 3 time as big. Get that design checker hired.

I'd also love to know why they printed two Sunfury & Belicosa cards for the Warlord Sinister when it can only fit one.

Cos the model comes with two Sunfurys, and can be magnetically modelled to cary them if it isn't being played as a Psi-Titan.

And, I guess, you could get a weapons sprue for Belicosas... OK, that's a bit of a head scratcher. Perhaps they offer both plastic warlord versions?

Am I right in thinking that the Warbringer comes with a pair of pipes (A11) that aren't actually used? Or at least, are missing from the instructions?

I have a 40k scale Warbringer as well and I can't find any pipes on that which match these either.

They actually seem to fit quite nicely between the unused sockets for the pipes that go to the head and the head itself, slotting in just below and in front of the existing pipes on the head, but not quite to the right place that they should if they were intended for that purpose (there's a slight redesign between the 40k version and the AT version in that the pipes on the head actually run from the body to the head on the 40k version rather than just between two points on the head).

So any ideas, anyone else found a use for them?

They are used if you cut the preposed tabs off of the legs/knee joints and need longer cables for posing. The instructions just never called out that you can remove the tabs and use those two pieces instead.

Always nice to have new toys for the hounds. We have a hound who needs to bring down a reaver...

...which happens to be MY reaver! No...I don't think I will give my brother that advantage!

Right now I think the lance could be the gem, though. Claws have a couple important issues -- they don't get any regular armor roll bonuses (because they don't make armor rolls), and they tend to mess up the Warhound itself and destroy the claw if you don't roll high enough on the impale roll.

Of course, you can outfit a bunch of Warhounds with them and stack up the +1s. But there's an opportunity cost at play there equal to all the other better ranged weapons you didn't bring. The Experimental Weapon strat is a potential solution if you want to keep your claw numbers down (or use it AND bring more claws to stack it up really high). But now you're spending precious strat points.

Meanwhile, the lance is something you can throw one of into a maniple and every now and then watch it pay off in a big way. Its main advantage is that it gets those armor roll bonuses from Lupercal squadrons, side/rear arcs, etc. And all you need is a direct hit to force the 4+ shutdown roll. It's not a titan killer like the claws could be, but it's a heckuva force multiplier if you can cause a shutdown on a big Titan and let the rest of your force unload on it.

Maybe I'm wrong though. It's always possible that going all-in on massed claws can just bring down one Titan after another, especially when you're using some Lupercal activation shenanigans. I'll try it different ways.

I think an overlooked benefit of the Claws could be opponents having to react to them.

When a Squadron comes stalking, Reavers will want to get out of dodge...

Neither weapon can be repaired at the moment so a few pesky aimed shots could strip the warhounds of half their firepower.

you'll need a few to pull a Warlord over, and pity the poor 'hound whose first to go in a Coordinated Strike and then start praying when his buddies miss... once that first claw's launched you're committed to the tug of war.

The claw and lance have the 'Specialised' rule, which says they can't be repaired. The cards still have a disabled side, but that's probably future-proofing.

They have restocked Titanicus transfers in the past. No guarantees though and I've not see any promises to reprint as of the other day

What conversion would that be? There are too few Titanicus conversions kicking around at the moment so I like to see all the ones I can!

Some nice looking weapons, depending on the price I will either pick some up or make my own as they look fairly simple to kitbash given a decent bitz box.

I'd say the reds were done with a red base, dark red sponge for the marbling, and then a medium red glaze over the top to bring it all together.

Base a nice dark brown like dryad bark or something. Use the face-scrub marbling technique with a good red like, say, evil sunz scarlet, then wash the whole thing in nuln oil. Or nuln oil gloss if you want it shiny.
