More Guard stuff

Post  System Commander on Tue Feb 17, 2009 12:15 pm

They've got a bunch of sneak peeks of models over at Bell of Lost Souls.

Man, look at those ratlings! Those guys are looking like little Wolverines.. awesome. Ithought Id just keep the ten I have, but man.. those guys are to cool!

And the one Leman with the giant gatling.... sure looking like that Heavy 20 might not be a typo!

well excited went to INSANITY...

As typical the French surrendered a list to the Germans and now it is up to the allies in the west to pour through it. Dammit my hatred of french now makes me have to resort to babelfish. Who knew french would be useful

A very naughty link (jk enjoy)

(following is a bell of lost souls quote)
Hi guys,

Apparently a summary sheet of the IG codex was accidentally released by Games Workshop France and quickly pulled. While I won't repost original GW content here, I can give you all some tasty tidbits from the sheet in question: These are confirmed correct


Leman Russ Executioner's turret plasma cannon: R: 36" S:7 AP:2 Heavy 3, Blast
~Jwolf was right on blast templates, this thing will be the terminator eraser!

Leman Russ Punisher's gatling punisher: R: 24" S:5 AP:- Heavy 20
~Thats right folks, Heavy 20 is in the game!

All Leman Russ variants have AV:13 side armor.
Valkyrie is: AV 12/12/10
The "Armoured Sentinel" variant is: AV 12/10/10

The Deathstrike exists; and drops 1d3+3 templates upon its target once per game.
The Medusa exists and each of its 4 missiles drop 1d3 templates upon its target.

Named characters in the Codex:
-Creed
-Marbo
-Artillery Sergeant Harker
-Nork ~YAY!!!!!
-Kamir
-Kell
-Yarrick
-Chenkov
-Straken
-Al'rahim
-Lukas Bastonne

I know who Creed, Marbo, Straken, Kell, Yarrick, ald Al'rahim are. The rest are a guess in the dark. I'd assume Artillery Sergeant Harker will work much like a SM Telion, but with artillary. I'll also go on a lark that there will be a SM Chronus copy there somewhere.

-get the duster out, find the old box of 3rd edition guard cause baby there gonna be everywhere this summer

I can read french! WOOHOO!

It lists "heavy weapon teams" as a single profile with 2 wonds

Commissars as 1 wound ld 9 (BAH....)

Lord level commissars are a beating though at ws,bs 5 3 attacks

"Body guard" as ws, bs 4 at 2 ld7

looks like veterans and storm troopers loose their ld8

It refers to a "master artilery man" who is a vet guardsman...interesting

Also to a "fleet officer" Could have mis translated this though....



exterminator autocannon is heavy 4 twin linked

The punisher cannon is also listed and IS heavy 20

There is a gun called a "radiant las gun" wich is st3 ap3!!! rapid fire or pistol

Ripper guns are now st5 ap- assault 3 Finally!

Also a blast multimelta Razz

Some kind of "bunker buster" weapon wich is st 10 ap1 range 48 blast*with some other rules

And these are not the ordinance guns!!!

death strike is min 12 inch-unlimited range st 10 ap 1 blast of d3 +3 inches

storm eagle rockets are ordinace d3, st 10 ap 4 barage large blast intriguing

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

Well i'm very excited with the coming of the Horde from Imperium (aka Imperial Guard). Here is an english translation of the above PDF that i linked.

With the Force Organization, i understand that, it was the translators creative interpretation. Other than that I'd say assume the numbers are right.

PS: Ripper Pistol 12 X 2 Pistol, Sniper 61 (this appears to be slybo's pistol) so it has changed since last incarnation.]

I gotta admit i cannot wait
Colonel “Iron Hand” Straken Colonel Catachan 5 4 6 4 3 3 3 9 3+ 60
Sly Marbo Sniper Catachan 5 5 3 3 2 5 4 7 5+ 61

also Commisair led army. My DIY Caphias Cain is all mocked up and ready to be painted WOOT. That's the only thing i'm bummed about with IG 5ed. No special character Commisiar Cain and his Smelly Blank w/ meltagun.

Oh, I've got a Catachan army all right. The first miniature I painted up for 40k was Sly Marbo.

A full jungle fighter army would beat the Orcs.. in a jungle. They would beat any army in the jungle actually.. Marbo has some neat stuff from the Catachan army list.. but I still think Straken has all the awsome stuff. He's a imperial guard guy, who has a power fist on his initiative.. ! And, he was able to take extra units of Catachan Devil squads.. which were the guys that lied in ambush at the start of the game..
