I could totally see fielding those as meganobz.

They feel too fat to be space marine models.

All I see is 'humpty dumpty'

The tank looks sweet though

A Cherubim. Instead of a servo skull, you can also get a mechanically augmented, flying naked baby to assist you in mundane tasks when you're a person of high rank in the Imperium.

The ranged Centurions look a little less silly, but I still can't see how they're supposed to move around at any more than a shuffle. And.....is that a HURRICANE BOLTER system strapped to their chest?

The thing I find amusing is how they are slowly changing the fluff for SM from insane quick tactical strikes to more general warfare (including sieges and whatnot.) with things like the thunderfire cannon, these new impossibly immobile centurions, AA tanks. I understand it from a game-play mechanic standpoint but just make me think they are trying to make them more like the old legions.

I am both excited and saddened by the thought that BT are rumored to have been rolled into C:SM. Would be nice to get a new book after so long. Especially since they sucked almost all the things out that made us unique already. Although I should have tried to get enough assault marines to run 30 of them with Storm Shields. Just for giggles.

From what I've read it's supposed to be some sort of fletchet discharge. Should work somewhat like defensive grenades.

You know.. m Im willing to bet if they had a big bulky helmet, similar to something like the venerable dread come swith..theyd look a lot more in porportion. They are bigger than a terminator.. we get that.. but why keep the little itty bitty head..

Once the little dude is in bed I'll enlarge a head and see if it looks a little better in proportion.

Even with the guns just strapped to their arms.. it seems off. I like the gun ones better than the assault ones.. but not by much. The AA variants look pretty cool though..

The shooting ones look a lot better. The drills on the other ones look really dumb.
I think your on to something Robyn, a bigger head would make it alright.

If you trim off the left and right sides of the foot pad it would help a little. m not sure if that just spraying febreeze on dogshit.

The only thing I might buy is the hunter. The stern and vanguard do look sweet. Tacticals as well.

So the might of the emperor get new midget walkers.... scratch fore head... Umm.... Okay....

Honestly they look like a Nemesis Dread Knight had an abortion.... How ever if I was an Ork player I would be super excited cause now you have an awesome new mega nobz

I am holding my opinion on the new tanks. They look okay, I guess. More interested in the rules and points. Can't wait for the plastic Sternquard.

Still holding out on the hope that The Might of the Emperor get a walker the size of a riptide or a wraithknight.

Well, the leaks are coming out a bit quicker now, and they have a lot of it up on 3++. My thoughts on the matter is that as I'm still building/painting my Chaos, I look over and see White Scars and think "God damn it, GW, I can't start a 4th army just yet!".

so. everything i've seen so far makes this codex release rock some socks. gimme some salamanders, gimme some white scars, hell even gimme some ultramarines.

the oblit-things are just better than oblits. going to cost you about 250 for 3 of them with TL lascannons and/or grav weapons... oh and splitfire, and nightfight, and ability to shoot two weapons a turn...

t5 nurgle oblits with vets are 237 points. get half the weapons, half the fire rate, no ATSKNF, night fight, split fire, or whatever chapter tactics you choose. (so far no mention of an invuln save though, so there is that... and no power fist on the shooty ones)

they are going to sell a lot of these =)

Apparently. there is also no Invul save for the Centurions.. at least thats what all the rumours have been saying. If that's true they'll have to hide in cover all game. Almost makes the assault ones quite useless, even if you do mount them up in a landraider.

Anyone hear differently?

sounds more like they just dont know if they have or not. did you notice the stat lines theyre posting also dont say the number of attacks they have? its missing in both profiles

also, has anyone looked much at the chapter tactics they mention? raven guard has a nice one there with army wide stealth. hello 2+ cover in ruins.

yea, the Iron Hands one sounds most suited for my red scorpions. then i dont have to field Culln in his chapter master form. gives me a reason to make a nice apothecary version of all my sargeants to reflect that C.T.

This page is all about Centurions, but some of the links off the page are cool.

The Devestator onces could pound out a lot of Anti-infantry fire if the rumours are true....2 Hvy Bolters and 1 Hurricane Bolter each....6 Str 5 shot and 3 (6) Str 4 TL Shots for 60 points. A group of 6...360 points....36 Str 5 shots & 18 (36) Str 4 shots.
