    Yeah my brother is a bit of a beakie-basher but I've always liked the MK VI helmet

    Those weapon packs probably only work with the Mk6 models, right? (Without at least minor conversion work)

    Also, the left shoulder pad on the Mk6 is two parts?! So it works without undercuts.

  • Mr_RoseMr_Rose 83 Blue Ridge Protects the Holy Registered User regular
    Yup, two part shoulders so you don’t have tiny rivets smeared across the pad. Of course, the Internet being what it is, there’s already people whining about how that make the things harder to assemble cleanly and how the literally inevitable seam is going to ruin all their models…

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

    Put it this way: Weapon packs makes havocs and devestator boxes obsolete, if the weapons are at a reasonable (by comparison) price point.

    Speaking of havocs, is there any background justification for them being now t5 and huge since the last codex?

    I wonder how the shoulder mounted heavy weapon upgrade s like the lascannon work. Does the upgrade kit come with fitting arms or does the Mk6 kit come with them?

    They're coming down with a nasty case of the Obliterator virus and becoming one with their weapons.
    I don't know if it's implicit in their lore entry, but that's pretty clearly what's going on with them.

    Both your questions have the same answer: Through Chaos, all things are possible.

    Dunno about the sprue, but someone had a picture of one of the new MkVI assembled without care, and undercoated with equal sloppiness, that showed the assembly clearly.

    There's some pics of the Mk6 in all the legion colours from the event on Saturday floating around and the alpha legion version is the szand out for that mark in my opinion. And it looks dead simple, too. Just metal with contrast turquoise over the whole model with parts then picked out in metal again.

    Death guard looks also neat. Generally I think it works better with the colour schemes that have different pauldron colours because with any trims on the armour it looks better with some colour blocking than with just a single colour.

    New Lucius (pre-the Eternal) previewed for Horus Heresy.

    Weirdly, the article doesn't say if it's a new plastic release or a Forgeworld resin model. (Hoping for the former, though expecting the latter...)

    Edit: confirmed on twitter to be resin.

    When I saw the headline, for a moment I thought, non imperial factions would be introduced to the heresy system. It's just the old factions from version 1 though.

    Aside from some outliers (book tie-ins), I wouldn't expect any legion-specific stuff to be plastic.

    In the Heresy itself? Yeah, not happening.
    If they do a Great Crusade expansion; Orks and Eldar will almost have to show up. Squats as well. They could also do a whole line of small factions for things like the Murder spiders.

    The combat patrol for the CSm

    Its a really good combat patrol. Havocs are good, Normal legionaries look really good with the previews and leaks. Like 2w base 3 attack marines with armor of contempt is good. And their doctrines mean you can make them melee machines with 4 attacks and exploding 6s or bolters can do work with exploding 6s.

    Apostle is an amazing model. I need to paint my new one.

    The CSM Combat Patrol looks neat, but selling a box containing a 10 man unit of CSM, a character, a heavy weapons squad, and a Dreadnought for what will likely be $160 seems kinda ballsy when the original CSM Start Collecting was a 10 man unit of CSM, a character, and a Dreadnought and was $80 cheaper.

    Alternately, the current Start Collecting CSM is a 10 man unit of CSM, a character, a heavy weapons unit, a couple of Greater Possessed, and a Dreadnought equivalent and was priced at $95.

    HQ & retinue

    10 Infiltrators
    3 Eliminators
    3 Suppressors
    Repulsor Transport
    Lt HQ

    Seems like a pretty equivalent box, and has more value for double dipping.

    What are they going to do with the current sc! csm box? I think there's several models that are only available there.

    Yeah. The two Obliterators come with the Venomcrawler on a sprue (from Shadowspear), so I imagine the three will have to be sold together. (Like how the Nighthaunt in AoS just had a release of "The Ethereal Court" announced. Rules wise, there's no reason for a Knight of Shrouds, Spirit Torment, and Guardian of Souls to be sold together - the three of them just shared a sprue in Soul Wars.)

    (The two Greater Possessed share their sprue with CSMs, but now that regular Possessed are the same thing as them I assume they'll just go away.)

    In today's painting demo I can see the riveted shoulder is bisected.
    But you can get a better overall look at a mini in the video as well

    We've come so far and they're still putting those stupid-ass, completely unnecessary hoses on power armor joints?

    I saw a bunch of videos from the Heresy day where they showed off the kits and such
    I do agree they did show off the Contemptor kit in the static generic way. A lot of the models were airbrushed so looked ok from a distance but looked better without my glasses and in a darkened room close. A lot of the praetors they showed off where custom so I am curious about the kit now since some had the axe in one hand or a different head or the trophy rack swapped?
    I am still torn as I do want to do a traitor legion
