A power maul on a STR 5 body is pretty swag, but that gets them into Paladin points territory. Then again, with the extra toughness and wound, plus the utility of walking cover, maybe worth it.

I2... so power Axe? str 6 ap2 seems to be the order of the day!

I can see a run on Ogre kingdoms stuff. sculpts are sweet.

It specifically says power maul, so no axes for them. Points seem a bit high but I suppose 3 wounds at T5 is pretty damn good. Paladins are still better.

To be fair, Paladins set a damned high bar.

I haven't gotten around to picking through the Taurox rules too closely yet. Is it an assault truck? The other big question for me would be "does taking the maul drop the launcher"?

I think the prime is for Tempestus only. That being said, you could load up some ogryns in a prime that is equipped with the homing augur or whatever. Drive the ogryns to where you want them. Disembark and then deepstrike your tempestus bros in behind your cover granting ogryns.

Does the imperium have any assault vehicles that are not land raiders or flyers? I can't think of any.

having had the codex for exactly 1 second.... i swear.

i'm causiously optomistic. some of the orders are fantastic. Take Aim - for instance. entire squad gets precison shots? I have visions of Plasma-Vets or blob squads rapid firing into the Various "stars" out there and Precision shotting out the Psykers or relic carriers that make thier schtick work. Bring it down, for tank hunters and monster hunter combined with prescience seems pretty good. Fire on my target to remove cover saves. all three of these in adition to most of the old orders coming back seem awesome.

Paying just for an officer of the fleet to mess with both sides reserves as needed? yes please. sorry dudes with astropath models Sad

Tank commanders? mwahaha.

Summary execution? betta.

0-3 Ministorum priests, Primaris Psykers , and Enginseers are all awesome imo.

If we can figure out the heldrake issue i think blob guard might actually be a thing!

Been doing some reading, and it seems that taking the Power Maul does indeed drop the mega-man fist.

At a tax of having to take a unit of muhrines. Probably worth it though.

dunno.

marine allies, or just put those points into Sabre platforms and a quad gun. If the drake survives interceptor, only have to get flammed once before vendetta comes on and finishes it off.

I'm a big fan of (0-3) 50 point ld 9 Ind Char Primaris psykers with access to Div and that don't take an HQ slot... even as allies for other marine armies. (25 points to upgrade to lv 2)

Tank Commander on a Russ of choose your flavour, 3 Pskyers, Vets in a Vendetta : instant allies plugin.

If only these guys were BB with CSM.

Isn't Pask in a Punisher a crazy good HQ choice now? Gets preferred enemy and orders or something?

Ugh wish I hadn't glued all my old Russes. They are all stuck with battlecannons, hull lascannon, hvy bolter sponsons.  Mad
