Legion of the Damned? The Fire Hawks haven't vanished yet in the Deathwatch timeline - did they change the LotD fluff?

…Warp-based time travel? For playing a game in another era? I dunno.

Weird..  that is not what I'd call 'a lot' - the wording made it sound like there'd be over a dozen to me.  And for all I'm disappointed there aren't more.  We still have all the tools for new ones in Rites of Battle.  And more importantly, new character options!  After all, I highly doubt most killteams are mainly Primogeniture chapters.  ;)


 

 

They’re the Chapters that get full write-ups like the main 6 in the core rulebook, Imp Fists in Rites and the other four in First Founding. There are a lot more Chapters in the book than just those.

That's awesome.  Basically doubles our fully wroteup numbers…

 

But how much detail is there for the rest?  I've got 2-4 days before I'll get the book.  So am curious!

How wonderful! Do we know what Advanced Specialties are in?

  • Black Templars (Sword Brother/Emp's Champ)
  • Storm Wardens (Tempest Blade)

Well, judging by the Storm Wardens preview, and the Advanced Specialities listed, that looks like it's the other material I worked on at the time I was writing my part of First Founding (because those chapters are in the rulebook, work was done on them at that point). The Black Templars section was quite fun to work on, actually, as their psychology made it quite easy to develop additional rules for them.

 Could anybody list ALL the Chapters with specifc rules please (even if it´s RoB size)? e 

Also what are the new advanced specialities? Any new deeds?

Oh, and some closer description of Carchadorons and Howling Griffons if anybody could provide it.

As a random aside, the reference to marines being present at Normandy pained me… but then I am a pedant and history is a speciality of mine.

You're correct. It's those bits. The Sword Brother is easily one of my, if not my fav, advanced speciality. Using him all those many moons ago was so much fun. I'm glad the 'official' rules for him are finally in print!

So any answer on the 'how much' detail is there for all these other chapters?  :)

 The following chapters have a minor write up, similar to the successor chapter info in Rites of Battle.

Angels Encarmine! Angels Sanguine, Angels Vermillion, Angels of Vengeance, Disciples of Caliban, Guardians of the Covenant, Doom Eagles, Fire Angels, Silver Skulls, Knights of the Raven, Sons of Medusa, Fire Hawks, Astral Claws, Exorcists, Fire Lords, Minotaurs, Star Phantoms and Invaders.

Alas there are no Mantis Warriors!

 Exorcists? That's interesting. These write-ups must be a bit different than the ones in Rites of Battle, then, since the only Grey Knights rules are in Daemon Hunter…

Cool.  That's at least useable for the others too.  I'm really looking forward to this book.  Shipped today, priority… so by Friday at the latest!

All those extra Chapters function as modifiers to the 'Codex Chapter' base rules, either adding a few rules or changing a few of them, allowing one base set of rules to function for a lot of different Chapters.

This is very interesting to hear. Nice to see so many new Chapters gets writen up and I am in particular interested in the Angels Carmine, Angels Sanguine and Angels Vermillion. Sorry to hear about the Mantis Warriors however but we got a fair few others instead. :) I'm looking forward to getting hold of enough money to spend on getting this book.

Both Fire Hawks and Legion of Damned? WARP DID IT!

Black Dragons.

On a whole, the book seems lacking in successor Chapters of the Salamanders, White Scars and Iron Hands.  Maybe that's all being saved for yet another rulebook.

 

Edit:  Not that those Chapters have a lot of known successor Chapters in the first place but still it would be nice.
