I could be fired for this, but I must do it. (This is one of the Lion's datasheets that is in development, most likely this one will be adopted)oFplcl.png

Didn’t we already see something like this, and both Hope and Despair were swords in the Heresy and one was already destroyed when the Lion used it as a Force weapon to banish/destroy a Lord of Change? Hopefully whoever is developing this knows that fact and it gets changed so that we don’t have repetitive/cliche names again.

Hope you don’t get fired for it...

Monster? Did he ingest those heretical watcher juices involuntarily when he was asleep or something?

I think that just keeps him in line with Guilliman.

If it's real he's even more powerful than Guilliman. I can live with that.

Would transform DA overnight.

Roboute Guilliman also has a keyword "Monster". I don't know why. Ask the rules writers about it.

Master Strategist always makes me sceptical, since it feels like one of those things given to Gulliman because of 'muh logistics' and every fake-leaker assumes it will be a loyalist Primarch-wide thing.

 

Also look at the awful editing of the 18, how 'low' it is, as well as the shoddy Power text.

This is just a datasheet knocked someone knocked up off the stats that were supposedly in the Codex before it dropped.

And on top of that, the formatting is janky as all heck compared to GW datasheets, and why would his buffs as Primarch only affect the Inner Circle, and not the whole Chapter?

Comparing it to the Guilliman datasheet, the wording is really off.

If it’s pre-temlating and playtest only, they wouldn’t bother formatting a datasheet, it would be flat text, maybe with a couple of simple tables. And GW doesn’t capitalize “mortal wounds”.

This is fake, and a poor one at that.

Meh, even if it is real, it’s disappointing.

Something not derivative and repetitive.

Give him a “Cloak of the Order” or some such, and leave it at that. Let him have weapons with new names, abilities that aren’t Azrael’s magnified, or Guilliman’s magnified, etc. Despair’s ability is literally the Emperor’s Sword’s ability reworded. “Master of the First” is simply a renamed “Author of the Codex”. Maybe they could finally name a weapon in the tongue of the world it is from, so that El’Jonson’s sword is “Mralshen, known in High Gothic as Emerald Sorrow”. A bit of creativity would go a LONG way.

Plus, as wildweasel said, why would his armor and I Primarch ability only affect Inner Circle units? Did he mysteriously become “not the Primarch of the Dark Angels, only the Inner Circle”?

The 5++ buff is weird. What inner circle doesn't already have at least a 5++? Just librarians?

Too many errors, and the Inner Circle text links up with the new DA book, which the Lion is obviously not in. Fake.

 

Edit: Also, you just copied the 'leak/rumour' from other fake rumours..

 

https://spikeybits.c...-next-year.html

https://spikeybits.c...ex-content.html

 

These are virtually the same Lion El'Jonson rumours from when he was 'supposed' to be in the DA Codex.

Lots of grammar mistakes in a beta-datasheet. Why would anyone at GW bother to make a beta datasheet and not pay any attention to grammar? Also, the picture quality of the text is perfect while the resolution of the images on the top left and right corner of the datasheet is much lower. This can be clearly seen by comparing the word "power" to the "18" above it.

 

It's obviously fake.

That whole movie is destined to be memes, isn't it?


Marneus Calgar is referred to as "one of the Imperium's greatest tacticians" and he treats the Codex like it's the War Bible. If the Codex is garbage, then how bad is everyone else?

"The Wolves were the Emperor’s red right hand–monsters in their own way–but how easy it was to only see the savage, to fear the axe and miss the subtle knife." - Prmomus
