At long last! woot.gif

 

I've been waiting for that since Book 1. I'm really happy with what I'm seeing, can't wait to make a proper Heresy-era DA Army!

Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!

Definitely a win. Want to see the concept art for their Terran robits.

It’s weird how they keep shifting the secondary colors for the dark angels though. Started with a silver and now have a strong red presence. Will have to see how they want to do subtle markings/colors for different wings.

I've seen it mentioned from the Q&A yesterday that the Terran robots were canned. Pile of salt with that though, since I've no clue how reliable that report was.

On a wider note though. What blows my mind, unless I'm reading too much into it, is that the Hexagrammaton is mentioned separately from Rites of War. Does this mean we can expect TSons Cult style rules for each wing..?

I’m curious where the source of those robots came from? Hopefully they replace them with something interesting.

Some pretty solid miniatures here, that Terminator Praetor in particular looks very nice.

They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.

Was from a brief summary of the Q&A on /tg/. I'm not assuming anything, but since it's the only source I could find on what was said there, I'm preparing for a sad, robotless existence until things are confirmed either way.

Can’t wait to see what they have got coming for us in the way of special units and vehicles.

So, Crusade is the new official book title instead of Angelus? Not just working title? It's not mentioned on the Warhammer Community website...

You need to purchase an earlier book then.

Honestly, I can't even comprehend how much I am in love with these releases. When it came to models I was simply looking for the Cataphractii Terminators in the artwork being done as they were depicted, but seeing this makes methinking they're going to surpass even that.

 

If these are released at the FW Open Day then I will make a bee-line for the event. But that's the only thing that could get me there.

All sculpted by the extremely talented Alexandre Dumillard, he has been such a great addition to the FW model designing team.

Happy tears. So excited for these, they look absolutely phenomenal. Exactly the style I'd hoped for turned up to ELEVEN BABY!

However can't wait for the special terminator unit in Tartaros to mismatch the preator, of course ;) however if they break that cycle....

Ok, FW has knocked it out of the park with the First Legion! I hope the long, long wait for its followers is vindicated now, and hopefully with more to come in the form of special units and rules. The praetors look fantastic and very knightly and decorated, which I guess fits more with the Calibanite side of the Legion, but if you want to go more Terran, you can still use the generic praetors as a base, which are still fantastic sculpts.

Wowee, those praetors especially are gorgeous. I'm also really excited to see how they handle the rest of the Hexagrammaton. The new DAoT relics also sound like they could be very neat, if the psyarkana from Book 8 are anything to go by.

Imagine if the Deathwing models get BOTH Tartaros and Cataphractii :drool:

Oh yeah. I'm in love with these sculpts. And it's good for me, looks like I'm only getting a Deredeo from Forge World. I can wait for the new Dark Angel dreadnoughts wub.gif

I'm in agreement, the new relics sound interesting
