Sisters of silence are rolled into talons of the emperor so should be covered by the "custodes" symbol?

I feel like what we really need is some serious anti-psychic abilities to shut down Smite Pharms like Thousand Sons .

 

Thousand Sons daemon princes and character smite need nerfing in line with Grey Knights, that's it. TS aren't a problem, its mixed chaos lists with TS characters.

I can guarantee you that if 'smite' is turned down during the psychic awakening, then it will be replaced by something far more sinister. Thousand Sons live off of it. It's pretty much their main way of dealing with a lot of different things... well that and soup.  Thousand Sons are pretty devoid of anything out side of the psychic phase right now. I would imagine Psychic Awakening would give some more options to all armies that relied too heavily on one or two clutch powers. At least that's what I'm hoping.

 

I have a feeling the Psychic Awakening is just a way to open a storyline for the Sisters of Battle (SoS?) to be brought to the forefront. If we see the campaign based on this premise, it means a growing psychic threat from the warp, and from Xenos. This will result in a great psychic defense requirement by the Imperium. In some cases it means psychic vs psychic. In others (Tau, Necrons, etc) it means having a way to avoid/defeat/shut it down. 

 

Either way it feels to me more story driven than rules driven.

Unless there is a big retcon there are no psychic custodes.
I assume most of the new rules will either be new psychic or anti-psychic in nature.

I think it would make sense to release the SOS for 40k as part of the custodes list like in 30k, SOS are how custodes deal with psi shenanigans in 30k.
GW can just FAQ a keyword into the custodes and SOS to let them exist in the same list.

Either that or the custodes update in the psychic awakening let's them take psi-titans.

I'm thinking the psychic awakening is more the overall story theme of the campaign, spanning across systems instead of a: everyone gets a unit to do with pskyers.

I'm convinced the Black Templars will get something, featuring their ships in that cinematic is not a coincidence biggrin.png

Part of me hopes that if/when Battle Fleet Gothic gets a new iteration that Black Templars are the flagship Space Marine faction instead of the Ultramarines, the are easily the most famous Fleet-based Chapter after all.

 

but to get back on-topic, I can't wait to see what my Imperial Knights are getting, I know Chaos knights got some kind of Psyker/Daemonic Knight option in their Codex, but then again it seems that earlier speculation that this whole "psykic awakening" thing was 40K endless spells might be wrong means it could be anything...

Dark Angels would like a word with you in cell 42.....

 

 

But in regards to the topic at hand: Psychic Knights would be badass. And hopefully the thing for Custodes is more deny the witch or maybe just they're making it Talons of the Emperor and Sisters of Silence are getting rolled into the Custodes codex , which is what I'd prefer to be honest, as I've wanted to play a proper Talons force since the box set for it came out.

Dark Angels can have all the words they want. People tend to forget that DA are fleet based with all that Caliban talk.

While it was nice seeing a couple of BT ships it can mean nothing.

YeeeeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES. This. Psychic Knights and Talons becoming a real thing in 40k would be great.

No psychic knights would be horrible. It is nice having a faction be good at some things and not good at others. Knights are great at shooting and cc but vulnerable to psykers. It creates an interesting dynamic.

IIRC, no, that's just an image they have used before for the standard Primaris Librarian in Tacticus. Trying to find the source again.

The regular non-Phobos Primaris Librarian has those segmented belly plates that look aggressor-ish while the Gravis armoured Inceptors have regular torsos more like the Intercessor version.
 
You're not the first person the psychic hood has thrown off.

Nah - it's because the image is from the most recent Blood Angels 'Dex.

It definitely looks like it could be Gravis from the drawing, but the details all line up with the Tacticus Librarian that is currently for sale.

Hopefully we see the Gravis Librarian in whatever the next wave of Primaris will be - along with a new Gravis Captain - similar to how we saw all the Phobos variant wearing HQs with the Vanguard release.

Hmm it does resemble gravis, but there's no big chunky plates on the legs, and the segmented abdomen armor has rounded cutouts instead of straight plates like gravis has. I think the hood is just greatly exaggerated in this art piece.

It is interesting that it's got a blood angels Aquila though instead of being drawn as an Ultramarine. I haven't seen this art before--is it in the blood angels codex?

considering the dark angels teaser in WD, and the fact that fellow is a blood angel, perhaps hints of them getting updates?

 

or the important fact is he is a librarian and they didnt want to use a tigarius art

Primaris Librarians have always had a cross between Tacticus and Gravis armor, just look at Codex: Space Marines v1.

What makes you say that?

The model at least only seems like stylized Tacticus with an incorporated psychic hood, it doesn’t seem to have hallmarks of Gravis, so I always thought it was just the artist’s rendition making it seem heftier than it really was.
