Will the point values in the BA codex possibly be invalid as soon as the Chapter Approved book comes out within weeks? Does everyone need to get Chapter Approved anyway? Just curious....

Its more likely that the BA/DA have the new costs in them.

Yeah the BA and DA changes of the Chapter Approved are to be expected to be in their Codex already.

Buying the Chapter Approved at least once per gaming geoup is also recommended I think. After that we will be playing 8.1th edition and if you don't get it you will have outdated rules (wrong unit costs, lacking additional rules, etc). However it's not needed if your group decides against updating the rules of course.

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.

 

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

The GW store overlord in my area (aka our FLGS manager) told us that stores are supposed to have open copies. If people play at a GW store that follows this policy, then you won't need to buy it. And let's not pretend that this stuff won't be all over the Web shorty prior to the release.

Chapter Approved is just the 40k version of the AoS General's Handbook.

 

Yearly update to rebalance everything and combines any other random new rules in one easy place.

Is he a man or a warp entity?
He might simply be empowered by the goings on?


Since he can just pop into existence, anywhere whether it be a ship deck or above a battlefield, and then disappear in front of everyone. I think we are dealing with a warp entity.

I still like my theory that Sanguinor is Sanguinius's spirit. Slowly pulling himself together in the warp. We learned from Mortarion that even the dead still have fragments of their soul in the warp. (His adoptive father spirit is in a jar in eternal torture, Mortarion slowly collecting his soul over the last 10k years.) So maybe Sanguinius's is doing the same, slowly pulling himself together and growing in power. Though he can only do this for limited time and rarely, just like daemons.

I hate that theory because it means Sanguinius is a :cuss at heart. Just look at the Sanguinir’s stats. Not even worth 170pts, let alone “heart-of-Primarch” levels of cool.

Maybe more like a piece of a Primarch. I don't mind the theory if it opens the door for a BAs to get a Primarch-level character at some point in the future.

Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.

So the the new Codex goes on preorder December 2nd and it's on sale December 9th. We are getting a Blood Angels Upgrade Kit and a new Primaris Lieutenant named Tormalon (sp?). New Lieutenant is armed with a Power Sword that has a basket hit. Model is nice, but nothing earth shattering. We get access to the Stalker, Hunter, and the Stormhawk.

  

Rumored point changes from Chapter Approved confirmed. You can add Librarian with Jump Pack at 110 and Force Sword at 8. Infernus Pistol is 9 and Hand Flamer is 3, but those were under Sisters of Battle. Not sure if ours will be the same cost.

  


Stormhawk and Stormtalon, I hope?

 
Dunno. It just said Stormhawk.

You might see me in your ranks soon enough...
By basket hilt, is it meant like a Rapier?
Wonder if DA will have something...

A basket hilt is not exclusive to the rapiers that bore it. There were examples of basket hilt claymores as well for example. It is just a hilt which extends down and protects the hand with a lattice of metal bars that look like a basket as they wrap around the hand. Hence the name.
1% of people know that answer to, "What's the F.T.W. stand for?" You're not one of them.
8% of teenagers dont listen to rap and 2% havnt tried pot OR drinking... and an even smaller percentage of people actually feel the need to bolster their own self-esteem by putting a spin on being rhythmicly challenged and having no social life.
100% of your base are belong to us.
50% of marines apparently get lost in the warp. If only the guy who came up with that plot had gotten lost in the warp first.

My bad. Not really a basket hilt. There's a hand guard. Think more of a cutlass.

 

DA get the same thing. New Lieutenant and an upgrade kit. In addition to the units that Blood Angels now get, they also have access to Scout Bikers. Their book is Preorder on the 9th release on the 16th.

It's not an auto-buy then. You only get 1, a heavy bolt pistol, pads, a tilt plate, a couple heads, and like 4 reliquaries.

No cape. I think it's called a tilt plate. One of those little shields on the shoulder. The Blood Angel Terminators have them.
