    Faction Focus - Adepta Sororitas

    I think you hit the nail on the head here. The Acts we've seen aren't strong enough to gamble on and not reliable enough to trust.

    Space Marines new Beta Rule

    Well, their rant devolved by the third beat to "cheap Guard and Knights are the problem," so I think it was mostly the "free puppies, not kittens" thing pretre was talking about. I'm glad there's no Thousand Sons where I am, though. Those Inferno Boltguns sound horrifying.

    Space Marines new Beta Rule

    Glad to find other people who like the rule. Most of the people I've talked to are salty that there's no AP, that it's not really a buff to Chaos Marines, that all Bolters didn't get this rule. Personally I like the rule; I find it fluffy and possibly pretty effective (not in a position to play my Marines, currently).

    We jest, and yet...

    So what sort of new models or characters do you think we'll see in the full codex?

    White Dwarf Changes!

    I see what you guys mean. The video could have been greatly improved even if it had just been a voice reading announcements over some cool artwork or pictures.

    Seems brutal and not very fun for the Sisters player. I guess that's what most people end up having to do against Tau, since Necrons do the same thing, just relying on RP instead of an invuln.

    Seems like Sisters vs Tau would be a pretty rough matchup for the Sisters. Tau outrange them with everything, barring the Exorcist. They'd have to get absurdly close, I think, to do real damage.

    Nice conversion! Once we get more bits like the power fist, I'll actually start considering Primaris as a real army.

    As a Necron player, I am excited for all the points drops we got. Also as a Necron player, I am concerned that Tau and Admech, the two factions I struggle most against, also got substantial points drops. On the other hand, expect an Anrakyr and like 30 Praetorians list at the next OFCC.

    That's what I was getting too on the fighting twice, but they're still going to need to FAQ that to make it clear. And good point about getting to pile in and consolidate twice when it fights twice. As well as being better than simple additional attacks gameplay-wise, it also fits better with the cinematic aspect of the Engine tearing into enemy units like an unstoppable whirlwind.

    Well, Vessel of the Emperor's Will looks interesting. We'll have to see what the other Acts of Faith are. I agree that the 6+ FNP is underwhelming, though, and that the Penitent Engine needs clarification on exactly when it fights again. Does it fight like a normal unit and then you can select it to fight again after your opponent has selected a unit? How does that work with charges? Will the Engine fight twice before the unit it charged gets to fight, and can you interrupt it between those two fights? It's a terribly confusing ability.

    Vigilus Weekender data dump (from reddit)

    For the Ultramarines? Not particularly. For as long as I've played, Ultramarines have been front and center of the entire franchise, never mind the Space Marines as a faction. And while they are by far the most prevalent in the official content (campaign books, artwork, and that sort of thing), they are far less so in the Black Library, and even in the Codexes, it's still "Codex: Space Marines," and not "Codex: Ultramarines." Are they the most developed Chapter? Absolutely. I don't think that means GW is looking to phase out the other Chapters, however.

    Nice, that would be cool. I expect we'll see a fair number of Orks with those bits running around once this guy's been out for a while.
