yesterday I had a nice little Matched Game (only the first 2 Rounds so far, though) between the Talons of the Emprah and the Space Wolves. 1.000 Points eaach, SW = 57 Powwer, Talons = 53 Power.
So far the Talons are kicking my teeth in. Badly.
SInce the Talons seem to be a worthwile army (and I really like the models, thus hobby aspect of them), I was thinking about expanding on it.
However, I that the Games Workshop Index "Imperium II" only features the core forces.
The Gallatus Dreadnought, tanks and Saggitarius Guard are nowhere to be seen.
Same goes with the Sister's Vehicles.
They only feature the Stuff from the "Talons of the Emperor" Box-set.
I wonder, whether it planned to fully legalise these forces in 40k?
That would make the Talons Force pretty dull and even (legally) unplayable since e.g. HQs are missing. One can not even build a legal, Talons-only, Patrol Detachment this way.
Expanding on the force would become unintereting if this was the case :-(
Given the Key Word system I could put any Imperium HQ in the Army, thus legalise the detachment.
But c'mon... Have you read "Master of Mankind"? CAn you imagine a Custodees force being lead by a lowly Space Marine, or even Commisar (Who is a HQ, right?)? Just not coherend. At all.
Has anybody heard (or knows) where the rules for those units to be played in the 8th Edt. of Warhammer 40k can be found?
Is it one of the Imperial Armour books? I checked Astra Militarum and Astartees Book's Indexes, but could not find the Custodes or Sisters.
I assume, it can't be the Inferno Book, since this book contains 7th edt. rules only.
Any idea or thought... or even knowledge on the TOpic?
