What you guys thinking of the new stat line?

No more movement penalty for being in Termie armour, an extra wound and stength.

Well he's basically a Custodes with more wounds and really scary weapons now. :P

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.

I still hope that Drach'nyen does more damage a hit now, even if we get less attacks as a tradeoff - D3 simply isn't enough for a weapon of that power - but the changes to his statline are a great start.

He never had a movement penalty for being in Terminator armour.

I like those changes. They are reasonable enough so Abaddon won't suddenly cost 300+ points.

I'd be fine with the abilities staying the same and a small buff to his god-tier weapons damage.

Yep good changes. The kicker is really in the weapons though. If one of them end up damage 3 we're in business!

If there's a 40k Movie he should be played by David Bradley (AKA Walder Frey/Argus Filch)

Im pretty stoked on this model (and the entire release so far) but what do peeps think about the cost?

 

I haven't bought a GW product that wasn't in a boxed set since Eisenhorn dropped last year (not that finecast model for $30 was cheap but it's Eisenhorn!) so I'll probably go for it but he isn't budget priced by any stretch of the  imagination!

 

Also I am curious about some of the references by the designer to the internal armour decorations that you can't see after it is assembled. He mentions that you can see Abbadon's body and that you "armour him up".... I seriously curious to this this thing in the flesh

I wonder how easy this model would be to convert to a Chaos Lord (perhaps one on the cusp of Daemonhood).

It looks fairly close in size to a regular Chaos Terminator Lord. With the scenic base removed, it shouldn't be any taller than the Lord On Scenic Base - so no accusations of "modelling for advantage". With the right weapon swaps it should look passable.

Did you really need to have such a great idea after I disassembled him?

Alas, poor Torgaddon. I knew him, Falkus, a Marine of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy.

I do find it hilarious that some people were saying the size of newer marine stuff looks great next to regular humans like Cadians, and then GW upsized the humans so they are the same height as marines again :lol: :lol: :lol:

To be fair the artwork also portrays the talon of Horus with joints in the fingers haha.
Can’t complain though, that campaign gave rise to several articles and rules about Relictors which also paved the way for the mini sexed we have now..

Drach'nyen is. 

 

The Talon has also been beefed up - AP -4, when before it was AP -3.
