I want a closer look at all of those metal boxes, I think that there is some potential there. Also, sub-divisions of Deathwing? Cool Beans.

Ummmmmm..............

Yeah..............

Kinda wishing I hadn't clicked that link....

Fortunately, nothing my conversion abilities can't handle! Although that land-speeder-barge-thing will need alot of work, or an entirely new model....

on the plus side, it comes with a big TL plasma cannon turret SoB style that might make a fun razorback conversion.

i like the TL plasma bikers; looks like they're gonna tie in something about the DA managed to save some of the old bike layouts from the crusade era; (HH books have bike squads called Outriders, and instead of TL bolters, they can have TL Plasma, Melta or Flamer bikes.)

One by one

Command Squad/knights: command squad isn't anything you couldn't do before, other than the apoth bitz. Look closely at the knights, who can assault off deep strike. I see no guns and no fists/th. Willing to bet PW/SS only.

Black knights: if they cost what Rw do now... Yeah! If they cost way more... Boourns.

LS Vengeance: wtf

Dark Talon: looks better than a raven or talon. Not a fan of the nose gun, but this likely the only kit so far I like enough to buy.

Belail: is it just me, or does the 3w, eternal warrior, 2++ save, relic blade wielding captain look like he has to pee? Look at his toes.

Where are the Mortis dreads? Unless they don't want FW to lose half their business.

I'm just hoping deathwing troops are close in cost to before, a master in TDA is about the same as a termie cap, and the talon is similar in price to a stormtalon.

from what i read, the dark talon's nose gun is supposed to be something similar to the FW strike avenger's gun, which was...a 15 shot gun but it had a low str, like 3 or 4. but i see 2 variants of barrels there. and on the curved page beside it, you can just make out a replacement; a TL lascannon for the nose.

via the Faeit 212 comment sections: from Lars Emil
Just in reference to the title of this post: No, it’s not actually a leak, the WD is just out in Denmark…for some odd reason. I picked up my own copy yesterady at a local kiosk.

Tid bits of note in the WD:
Dark Talon: Rift cannnon (no rules sited), hurricane bolters and stasis bomb (one use only, dropped on an enemy for – 3 WS and – 3 I)

Niphilim fighter: heavy bolters, blacksword missiles (no rules sited, but the battle report later in the issue mentions that the fighter is supposed to be good at taking on enemy flyers, so I guess the missiles are for that), avenger mega bolter/lascannon.

Deathwing Command: multiple options incl. apothecary and standard bearer. A “Champion” wielding the “massive halberd of Caliban” is mentioned and there’s a picture (no rules sited).

Deathwing Knights: Terminators with WS5, Storm Shields, power mauls and special rules, incl. Hammer of
Wrath and “Smite” which makes them strike at S10 AP2 for one round. BTW both DW terminators and the knights can be fielded in units of 10 now! Oh and the DW can take plasma cannon and they have USR “split fire”!!!!

Land Speeder Vengeance: AC/HB, plasma storm battery (mentioned in the battle report to be able to fire either 3 small blasts or 1 large blast, I’m guessing plasma stats).

Darkshroud: HB/AC, Shrouded USR and conferes Stealth to allies within 12″, and it has a rule that gives units +1 to charge distance (as far as I can read – the picture is quite small and hard to read, so perhaps it’s plus 1 to something else).

RW Black Knights: plasma talons (instead of bolters, no rules sited, and not being called twin-linked plasma gun/pistols leads me to believe the rules could be a bit different), corvus hammer (no rules sited, but I guess they are power mauls), they also have the option of a RW grenade launcher.

Sammael: pretty much the same as before, as far as I can tell, though with a 4+ inv.save (which is confered to the land speeder if he chooses that instead) – can’t remember if that’s new.

Dreadnaught: has option for dual twin-autocannons, venerable dreadnaught has “DW vehicle” rule
Rules mentioned:

DW knights and black knights have a rule called “Inner Circle” and in the battlereport it is mentioned as giving them some form of re-roll in close combat.

New rule calles DW Vehicle

DW assault rule is mentioned in the battle report as ensuring a DS in turns 1 or 2 with no dice roll needed, decided by the DA player before the game begins.

There are more special rules mentioned but no rules sited.
DW, DW command and knights are in the same box.
RW command and RW black knights are in the same box.

Funny.

I'm sure i'm not the only CSM player who suddenly thinks that their army may just work better as Fallen Angels....

I saw a rumour that showed Dark Angels getting Flakk Missiles for 5pts. Seems fair.
