Warhammer 40000 : Made to Order Primaris Lieutenant
Hello again everyone !!
from gw :
Cancelling events and preview shows in light of COVID-19 has left us all feeling a little blue. Well, to bring a little joy to us all, we're making Lieutenant Amulius available through Made to Order for a very limited time! Secure your order in the next two weeks and we'll ship it to you when things get back to normal! We're sure you'll agree, that's a better kind of blue, and should give us all something to look forward to!
This multipart plastic model comes in 7 components and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round Base. You’ll find the full rules for a Primaris Lieutenant in Codex: Space Marines.
MADE TO ORDER
Lieutenant Amulius was one of the event-exclusive miniatures for the 2019-2020 season, but in light of recent events, we’ve made it available for a limited period of time as part of our Made to Order service.
Lieutenant Armulius will be available to order between Saturday 28th March and Friday 10th April inclusive - and we'll start shipping them out just as soon as we're able to open our factory and warehouse once again.
Warhammer 40000 : Saga of the Beast review (Fluff and Space wolves)
Hello everyone !! The saga of the Beast arrived today. I would usually whine about UPS delay but amidst the Covid19 outbreak I even feel bad for the UPS peoples.
Still, Saga of the beast is the sixth instalment of the Psychic Awakening Series, Aka 40k the Live Update before 9th hit the store ^^. This time the person of interests are Orcs, led by Ghaz with his awesome new model and Space Wolves led by Ragnar Blackmane, the Primaris Edition !
Let's jump right into it :
As usual in the Psychic awakening series, there is no fluff progression. its more a picture of a battlefront between sw and orcs. In Saga of the Beast this is, even more apparent as the book only narrate battles after battles always with Spaces Wolves and orcs. Each time it's a different setting and cause so it's kind of a nice read but not change of the grand scale of things ^^
I like the one where a Spaces Wolves armoured division rushes the center of a speed waaagh to fight a looted Baneblade with a belt of orcs Psycker chained to it. When the SW reached it, the whole Whaaag teleported in the unknown ^^
Another one it's an army of Orcs mercenary that betray their client an imperial world and take the planet for themselves...(so Governor consider Orcs mercs as an option
In the end, these have no meaning on the grand scheme of narrative but it was an entertaining read!
Used to be my favourite part, not anymore ^^But one text block is an interesting :
Maybe it means new shinning spears kit ? or an exarch ? or maybe even Drastanta? I don't know maybe it's nothing will see Friday if they reveal something.
Another block worth a mention :
Death guards were bound to arrive at some point don't you think ? ?
Ragnar became a Primaris after a fight with Ghazghkull Thraka on Krongar ! usual story, near-death experience, transformation.
Ragnar stats were already shown and he's at 120 points. He's quite nice if you need to mow down Primaris Infantry ^^
-Spaces wolves gain all the doctrines (with the nerf of course) and the other specials rules common to Spaces Marines.
- 2 new rules :
Wow these 2 abilities combined help a lot :
16% more hit during assault Doctrine and 16% more hit (on unit hitting on 3+) during a charge...that'a 33% hit increase on regular troops ! Savage !!
-All primaries unit integrated to the SPace wolves.
-Multiple Specific characters were Primarised, like wolf priest, battle leaders, wolf lord in phobos armor... apart from the Wolf Priest all these transformations are in name only, as they are exactly the same as the standard version from other SM books.Only the name of the pieces of equipment and rules were changed and that is a bit sad...
-Primaris wolf Priest is a Primaris Chaplain but with the Healing Balm Rules as per other Wolf Priest.
-Obscuration Discipline added (no surprise)
-Litanie of Battle added as well for SW chaplain equivalent
Regular traits for a warlord in Phobos
Three pages of Stratagems, i know that' s a lot but they incorporated all the major ones from SM dex and Chapter dex. Also you get a few SW specific like :
Touch of the wild
Extra hit on a 4+ !! damn that's hot stuff for Smash Captain strategies.
Knowledge of the foe
Yea ! i ate your characters ...So what?
Death grip bite
Double the damage of the wolves so it's good for one CP and combine super well with Space wolves added abilities.
Potentially as strong as an Orc Warchanter buff from AOS, but the targets are limited. Still, rules state that Wolf Priest know this litany besides their normal selection, so you can always use it when needed for a 100% increase in damage on basic CC attacks. A simple Intercessors Spaces Wolf unit can shred a lot of targets with this litany :
27 Attacks hitting on 2+ generating extra hit on 6+ should result in 27 hits, 9 wounds (on a 5+) with ap -1 and damage 2 that's an average of 9.5 wounds (based on a 3+ armoured vehicle) and if you compute the 4 Hammers attacks (3+ 3+ -3 damage 4) with a 52% of an extra hit that's a lot of pain.
Nothing incredible they also get access to generic relics from other SM books.
That wraps for the first part of the review! The book is decent, vital if you play SW or Orcs. I grow bored of the Psychic Awakening line of books... all this milking for a few changes or addition are BOooooring !
Next week : Blackstone Fortress: Deadly Alliance (with the Zoat)
Hello everyone !!!
The Deadly Alliance expansion is a totally new, standalone quest to test your explorers – replete with high-risk, high-reward excursions to put an end to an alarming phenomenon called the Seethe. Besides the Zoat retinue character, including its card and full rules for using it in your games of Warhammer 40,000, the box is loaded with location tiles, tokens, and tons of cards to represent new threats and loot for your explorers to discover.
Cool a new extension for Blackstone Fortress and this time i should have time to paint the Zoat before playing ^^
Warhammer 40000 : Ragnar Blackmane !!
Hello everyone !!!
Ragnar datasheet is floating online.
10 attacks on Charge !!! PA 4 and Dmg2, AkA, the Primaris blender ^^
ps : Cause of Nurgle i am not sure i will receive Sage of the Wolves (in time ? ever ?). No confirm from ups yet.
Warhammer 40000 : Saga of the Beast Price
Hello everyone !!
Look like the price is 105£. The price is quite decent but it's still a bummer that you can't get Ghaz alone...
New Box next week and Saga of the Beast !
Hello everyone !!
Next Week on pre orders !
Orcs Vs SW box, this one was rumoured a long time ago and at last, it's a reality. Still if you just want Ghaz or Ragnar it's not optimal ^^
Also on pre-order the next Psychic Awakening Chapter.
Ghazghkull Thraka and Makari !
Hello everyone !!!
Ghaz and Makari stats have been shown to the Internet ^^
Makari 4 Wounds Gretchin with a 2++ and a 6+++
Gahz is a Real Beast and has a Morathi-like ability preventing him from losing more than 4 Wounds per Phase.
It's fun that he gain more attack but loses str by getting wounded.
Btw i have no idea on how Ragnar is supposed to fight this beast and win ^^
ps : Good luck if you are on lockdown!
GAMA Games Workshop seminar !
Hello everyone !!!
This night GW revealed a lot of new stuff at the GAMA seminar. Sadly no Bloodbowl team but new Lumineth unit, Titanicus Knights, Esher Codex and new models, DOK warband in underworld.
After the house of Chains for the Goliath Gang, here come the House of Blades !! the Esher Codex for Necromunda.
House of Blades is a new gang book for Necromunda that offers unparalleled resources for Escher gamers and lore-lovers alike. As well as detailing the history of this gang in a level never seen before, it looks to the future with new rules, house allegiances, gangers and even their pets! Take the Death-maidens – Eschers returned to life through vile science in order to lend their deadly services to their gangs once more – and the Wyld Runners, bold explorers who hunt the Underhive.
also cute cats, Known as phelynx, these cat-like monstrosities are cracking for bringing down rival gangers.
Really love the Escher Rangers ^^ it's such a good idea ^^ Dino Cats are ok too. But i am not a fan of the Escher Zombie...Maybe it's the painting.
I hope we will soon get more info on the Noble House/Guild they can ally with... !!
Later this year, Morathi’s chosen servants will arrive in Beastgrave with a warband that boils down this iconic army into its most distinctive elements – crazed cultists, shadowy mutants and one very deadly Hag Queen. Known as Morgwaeth’s Blade-Coven, this warband will bring the fast, tactical and gory play style of the Daughters of Khaine to your competitive battles.
Some good stuff, some DOK look weird...maybe it's the painting. I more and more dislike the GW metal ...
Knight-Acheron and Knight-Castigator! Rendered at last in glorious plastic, these new models bring the design elements and lethal weaponry of their larger counterparts to Adeptus Titanicus tabletops in style. They’ll be great to add to your armies or just as particularly cracking painting projects and desk-decoration.
And that’s not all. Whether you like your war-machines small or massive, you’ll want to grab yourself a copy of The Defence of Ryza, the next campaign book for Adeptus Titanicus. You’ll have the chance to forge your own legios or master a legendary one from the background, discover more epic titan battles from the Horus Heresy, declare your loyalty or harness new battle standards for your Knight Household – and that’s just scratching the surface!
Spears, horsemen, legendary warriors of yore – the Lumineth Realm-lords are shaping up to be a stunning army. And you’ve not even seen the whole range yet! Feast your eyes upon the Auralan Sentinels!
Providing long-ranged support to phalanxes of Auralan Wardens, Auralan Sentinels reimagine the classic High Elf Archer in Age of Sigmar.
This is an Alarith Stonemage – an aelven wizard attuned to the power of the elements. This model isn’t just a brilliant example of what modern miniatures design technology can do (look how delicately they’re balanced!), it’s also a valuable battlefield unit that enhances nearby allies, as well as smiting enemies with gravity manipulating magic!
Models is awesome but you need to change the head or the face at the least ^^ (solve lot of Rumour engine hu ?)
Hooo Fabius Bile !!!
Lots of Great Reveal at this GAMA...Big Big fan of the Escher bowgirl !! Wow with all the recent reveal and the Adepticon coming it's hard to keep up ^^ :D
Warhammer 40000 : Ragnar Blackmane vs Ghazghkull Thraka
Hello everyone !!!
Next PA chapter brings 2 updated Heroes !! Ghazghkull Thraka & Ragnar Blackmane.
Spannerz web comics : 26 days to Waaagh ! is that Saga of the Beast release date ?
Hello everyone !!
In today Spannerz (release date 2 March), the Days to Waaagh number is 26 ! (top left)
2 + 26 = 28 march and it's a Saturday ! That would be awesome if they synchronised both Timeline for Spannerz Waaagh and Saga of the beast release.
Also, it's the Saturday of the Adepticon and it's a big deal to GW this year. (they even asked us if we were coming to the event)
On the other hand, the 2 previous Spannerz also had a countdown but the date were not matching ^^
yea ...i know it's far fetched ^^
