    I've seen people talk about putting the HQ dreadnought Bjorn into a drop pod but my drop pod rules don't say they can put a dread in them. Is there a rule I'm missing?

    The answer depends on where you are from.

    You used to be able to put Dreadnoughts in drop pods back in 7th Edition. There is a Dreadnought specific Drop Pod (the Lucius Pattern Dreadnought Drop Pod) but it is a Forge World model that is no longer available (apparently someone dropped the mold and broke it).

    A while back they mentioned that they were working on a new mold for the model, so we'll see if that ever happens. The Lucius Pattern is a bit bigger than a normal drop pod, but if your opponent doesn't balk you could always just proxy it with a standard one. The rules for it are in the Imperial Armor: Forces of the Adeptus Astartes book sold by Forge World.

    The new Dreadnought Drop Pod was revealed and was for sale at the recent Forgeworld Weekender, so it did ever happen. It's just not up for sale on the website yet.

    Buyer pays for shipping. If you want nice models to survive shipping, you pay the price for stuff to be wrapped and padded.

    I'm not even expecting most of these. I'm guessing the big highlights will be the beta bolter rule being made official, and maybe some kind of tweak to command points.

    In Chapter Tactics about two weeks ago Jeff Robinson said they were nerfing the Castellan but said he couldn't say how.

    He both does live streams for GW and is one of the major play testers.

    Sisters had similar but weaker "act twice" powers and they were nerfed hard in the CA beta codex, it'd definitely be a prime opportunity to do the same.

    To be fair, the Ynnari need the buff. There are a couple of factions in the game that they actually lose to.

    I dont think they would. The torso and legs of the Primaris marines basically fit together in one pose. The torso isn't cut in two at the waist like on the old marines.

    It basically means even the multi part kits are monopose.

    Oh, I forgot about that.

    I want to use the cloak from Krom on this primaris Ragnar I'm working on since I'm already using bits. Feels like a waste to not use it.

    Edit: I'm suddenly losing a lot of steam on this project. I want to try and make green stuff bracers that match the ones the original Ragnar has and the diamond pattern with the wolf head on the left shoulder with green stuff. I tried using the wolf head half of a power axe from they grey hunters sprue but it's not big enough or at least doesn't feel big enough. Pretty sure the wolf side of a terminator thunder hammer will work but I only have 1 so I don't want to mess up. I'm also hoping the pose will look good. I'm trading one of my already built intercessors to a friend with unbuilt intercessors.

    I'm also trying to use as much of krom as I can because I dropped $30 on that HQ and now I'm using him for parts.

    Man. I'm still jiggling around a mono-codex, mono-detachment Harlequin list and all it's doing is reinforcing in my mind that most of the book is drastically overcosted. Like, there's no way that a Shadowseer should be more expensive than a Farseer, and Neuro Disruptors are hilariously weak considering that they cost 10 points each.

    You could cut the cost of everything except Skyweavers by 10-20% and they'd begin to look reasonable.

    Too bad Skyweavers are one of the stupidest units in the game and completely poison all sympathy for Harlequin faction woes :P

    How do the Space Wolves markings work on the right shoulder?

    For grey hunters the right shoulder is red with black markings but how do I determine what marking to put?

    I also see in the old codex that some of the grey hunter pack marks are red on blue.

    You don’t ‘determine’ it, you make up something that looks cool. The whole point is there is no set ‘codex’ pattern - the pack leader determines his own pack’s markings and can/will change them between campaigns or even battles to confuse the enemy (and coincidentally most allies) over who is where.

    ...because dragons are AWESOME! That's why.

    That makes this a lot easier. I was kind of stressing over all the different options the old and new codex were presenting and trying to figure out if each one meant something or not. I'll just pick one I like and do each grouping of units with that pack marking.

    Thank you

    An Eldar update honestly can't be that far away, they're the very obvious next candidates after Sisters and Chaos. I'd guess we'll see stuff for them in either 2020 or 2021, maybe earlier depending on what happens with the Ynnari.

    Just... do something with Howling Banshees, for the love of God. They used to be one of the iconic Eldar units and I haven't seen them on the tabletop for years.
