Thematically speaking Alpha Legion make the most sense for this book. They're not Tzeentchian in any way, shape or form, but they are schemers and plotters, so it works. Inferno Bolts are kinda nuts, but I like 'em.

BYE

I would extend similar reasoning as to why Iron Warriors could be nested in the Khorne book. And I'll continue to hope…

 Man, I'm willing to bet it will be Tzeentch, Khorne, Slaanesh, Nurgle. That's just too bad.

Thousand Sons and Alpha Legion, eh? Let's guess… World Eaters and Word Bearers in Tome of Blood, then Emperor's Children and Night Lords in Tome of Hermaphrodites, and then Death Guard and Iron Warriors in Tome of Rot. That leaves out the Night Lords, though…


My apologies to anyone I offend; FFG staff, playtesters, and forum users alike. 

 

Please check out my Dark Heresy to Only War conversion! You can find it on the main Only War forum. I'm always looking for more people to playtest it!

I'd suggest that Night Lords might show up in the Nurgle book. Word Bearers might make it into the Slannesh book. I'm hoping to see Iron Warriors in the Tome of Blood. Lastly, the Black Legion doesn't really fit into any of the slots neatly. These are just my guesses at this point.

There might be a Chaos Undivided book at some point which would fit the Word Bearers (if they aren't covered in the Slaanesh book) and Black Legion.

I'm hoping that there is a product specifically on daemonology. If there is, then Possessed CSMs - possibly of different flavours, are going to fit in there. This would cover some interesting options for both the Black Legion and the Word Bearers.

Isn't The "undivided book" called Black Crusade Core Rulebook ? They mentioned 4 Books one for each god, it will take them another year probably. unfortunetly retailers here, in Poland don't even - pre-sell it yet.

The Core Rulebook gives everything basic coverage, but there is certainly room for a Player's Supplement to cover advanced Unaligned options.

Alpha Legion marines were a welcome surprise. The decision to lump them in as unwitting Tzeentchites was….interesting. Also, inferno bolts are insane, as are Rubric Marines by extension. The book allows 1K Son Sorcerers to take them as regular minions

 

 

Hell yeah! I was expecting quite a lot about Rubric Marines. I've been homebrewing one for my TSS, but looks like I'm getting the official deal

 

About a undivided book: it could portrait Obliterators, vehicles and daemonmachines!

 There's rules for Daemon Engines in this book.

I've just seen necron weapons in the Book.

I want some. All. Warscythes or a pair of hyperphase swords. And then i'll go Hunting deamons for fun. Greater Deamons….

Warriors, Flayed Ones, Tomb Stalkers and maybe one other, yeah. This book gives the rest of the profiles (well, most of 'em).

Hey H.B.M.C.,

I am inferring that "did" means "wrote."  Do the new melee weapons require an exotic weapon training talent?  The Polix Heavy Khopesh is quite the power house.

Thanks

It (along with The Soul Reaver for Rogue Trader) was sold to me by my FLGS back on Friday, 17AUG2012. It's also available as a download straight from FFG, so your release sheets - or your reading of them - must be in error.

Soul Reaver came out last week.

The release sheets in question come from Esdevium who are the biggest suppliers in the UK. If they don't have it, then noone in the country will. These books are also not on drivethrurpg either.

I've now got my copy in hand.  Yes, FFG, we know we are addicts.  We know you are our pusher.  Even with that, would a little quality control kill you?  No descriptive text for the void blade or warscythe?  And, the binding's already started to go after one read-through.  Bloody hell.

Glitches like that do detract from what is otherwise a fine book.  A lot of good stuff in there;  I was surprised to see Necrons added as a foil to Tzeentch, but it makes a twisted sort of sense when I think about it.

Cheers,

- V.
