Crimson Slaughter

Post  System Commander on Wed Mar 05, 2014 12:26 pm

Hmm.. interesting. According to the new White Dwarf.. possessed can be trooos in A Crimson army

I lkke the option being.presented.. but way possessed? Termies, bikes/raptors.. that would be so much more useful anf even .. logical?

The warehouse must be exploding with possessed boxes since they havent sold any in 10 years. A point drop would have helped more im thinking.

I'll have to take a closer look at the entry when I get home, but from what I remember 3+/5++ with nothing to overwatch with isn't really better than 3+/4++ that can't overwatch. Can possessed take anything other than marks and an icon? If you could get some tech into squad, I'd certainly be a lot more interested in it, especially given that possessed have a pretty kit.

The sarge can buy two gifts of mutation.

Also, the unit gets shred, poison, or ap3 in close combat.  They're also base S5 and A2

Edit: I'm dodging this book, completely not interested (even though I like the concept of possessed) I want my "Book of Tzeentch".

Scoring Helbrutes, and I'm in. Counts-as troops is not enough. (although a 9 walker army is appealing)

9 walkers? 3 from Elites, 3 from Heavies; where do the last 3 come from?

mark options maybe? would be cool to have them actually fit the theme of an army.

If helbrutes get anything.. ill be intetested.

Theres still the infamous gift entry to.look at. New daemon weapons go a long way for me .

So im confused.. is this not the veterans book.. buying all the skills? Its looking like its not.. but rules havemt filtered down yet.. just snippets from the white dwarf

vets book might just be vaporware or an early copy of black legion that got nixxed.

pretty much given up on rumours that arn't a week from release. is it just me or is faeit just churning the same 3 rumours in a circle each week lately? ever since escalation came out i've just been annoyed every time i hit up his site.

I think we're entering a time when GW has put a fairly tight lid on releases. We may start seeing false leads and weird release schedules because no info is coming out.

Got a sneak peek at the new wd. No word on special rules for hell brutes, but implication that relics might mess with them.
Possessed confirmed as a troops choice.

Via bols:

"Possessed Chaos Marines:
Possessed move to Troops
They replace the default Possessed ability chart with this new one:
1: Unit changes from Infantry to Beasts
2: Unit gains a 3+ Invulnerable
3: Unit gains Rending, and wounds on a 3+, 

Relics:
- Relic grants 2+ Armor Save, Crusader, It Will Not Die special rules +40pts
- Relic grants access to Divination +25"



Waaaaatttttttt. That's pretty darn sweet.

I'm not sure about that possessed chart. Turning into a beast at the beginning of the fight sub phase?

I'm thinking if that chart is legit, it would have to kick in at the start of the turn, lasting until the start of next turn.

Ya. If it is at the start of the turn, lasting until the next one it would be a pretty good chart.

I do likey the look of that chart.

I cant remember the new codex.. but last codex it was a roll at the beginning f the game. Spawn are every fight phase.. are new possessed every phase to or at the beginning of the game? Im to laslzy to go.look.

start of the fight sub-phase. 
reroll failed to wound rolls,
become ap3 attacks
+1 attack and initiative.

Hmm.. it'll be curious to see if they keep a sub phase change or not.

Becoming Beasts on every fight sub phase is useless. I have to believe you roll at the beginning of the game like the old one. This is exciting though.. I ve got 9 possessed with rending claws.. .. !

This table actually makes the mark of Khorne not a bad investment. Chance for Beasts or rending claws is awesome.. Geez, iff you know they're beasts at the beginning of the game they can hang out with Jugger Lord..

I am liking what Im hearing about Crimson Slaughter so far and its just snippets still.. I want to hear more about the relics.

I am somewhat wondering if the new chaos starter box reflects the operations of the new codex at all, especially with the content being shown in the colours of the chapter. If nothing else, though, the box rings in at $245 CND, and the component parts are worth $308, so at least we have confirmation that GW *can* make a bundle deal when they want to.

Oh! When I looked at it, it looked like it was the same. I must've missed a box.

That's a free Forgefiend (bringing me up to the three I've always wanted to play....) I might snag this box.

More Marines on foot....!

Thats a good deal.. the components for the cromson slaughter box came out exactly to retail.. at like 338.75 or something.

3 forgefiends would really provide a problem.. oo.. especially with a 20 point divination caster upgrade coming down.

I am really excited about getting a jugger lord with itnd and a 2+ save. Hopefully theres a new daemon weapon in there..im assuming a good chance you cant take the super axe with that.

... I could ally in a Red Sorcerer, Red Brute, Red Forgefiend, and Red Possessed pretty easily.
