DA are largely a shooty army and got a shooty buff
Id way prefer our own set of doctrines than an assault buff but am not optimistic. GK had me optimistic so am with you on the emotional rollercoast WolfGuardDan

As much as I'm trying to stay level headed here I sadly feel like we are going to be stuck with Assault Doctrine. Which means we have to slog through two turns of being average before we go off like Blood Angels. I'm hoping against all hope that we get Tactical but... To be honest we can get to combat if we use vehicles mixed with a decent screen/danger unit. A lot of people around my area still fear TWC so bringing one unit to run alongside my Rhinos and Drop Pods usually means they soak Turn 1 fire. We will have to wait until March to see though which is kind of lame

If we are in pa6, then someone stuff should hopefully leak about pa6 in the next 3 weeks if we are lucky.

I half expect pa6 will be the end of March, putting about 5-6 weeks between pa5 and pa6

We will have to see what GW puts out next. It seems likely we will see some more sisters release between PA4 and PA5 as they are already previewing more kits. So if PA4 is coming out the weekend of Jan 25 then I'd expect PA5 to be pre-order around Feb 8 or Feb 15 so that means we might see mid-late March. Again, rough estimates with no actual facts until we start seeing PA5 previews. We already have the new model and short story for Tau featuring Death Guard

Well last LVO they did both AoS and 40k stuff, we had the BLades of Khorne and the shadowspear box...maybe we'll get some hint towards that potential ork vs wolf box?

I'm pretty excited to see if we get anything previwed tonight. My hope... is a new ragnar, or new kit similar to the new DA kit because options are good.

Very interested to see what they do with the elves. 

 

I just hope that what ever Space Wolves get that it is fluffy and useful. Would really dislike it if they got a cool rule like the Flesh Tearers got just to have it FAQed away a week later.

If they follow what Grey Hunters do compared to Tactical Marines we might miss out on the Heavy Doctrine to get Tactical, Movement and Assault.
Personally I'd be happy with them in that order but that's just me wishlisting.
Add it to the wish of paying CP to grant a single whole unit of Primaris access to the Melee weapons and Storm Shields.

lazarus wasn't designed to be a special character, keep in mind. sculptor set out to make just a Primaris Master kit and story guys decided to use him as a special character.

Classic... Don't get too hyped cause we are probably getting "second part" in this book unlike BA and DA. At least I hope the rules we get to be good for a change...

I suspect at this point that we are joining the Black Templars in the "GW isn't really sure how to make us work with Primaris" box.

 

The lack of melee units in the Primaris range, combined with the fact that we are so divergent from the normal Marines in both flavour and rules, probably means we're going to be on the backburner until GW have done the entire Primaris line and then move onto the divergent Chapters - similar to the shift in 4th/5th Edition.

The darks greatest gift is the light itself: as days are defined by the nights that divide them, as stars are defined by the infinite dark through which they wheel, the dark embraces the light, and brings forth from the center of itself. With each victory of the light, it is the dark that wins.

The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.

Well heres hoping they break with their one model per PA trend they've established. But not too much hope at this point.

The blood angels melee is rather potent out of their PA so I dont really expect us to get hosed in the rules portion. I mean primaris certainly lack melee but goodness knows we have more options than primaris.

Just like how BA use old marines units to fill the gap in their melee, likely we will too.

Looks like guard and possibly deathwatch will be in our book too, so still hipeful on unique doctrines as well as usual stuff as that only takes up 5 pages but not expecting new datasheets or strats to upgrade characters as thats much more page intensive

Boxset looking less likely. Still think well get a primaris character

I will say this, it is a bit odd they show the factions of pa7, before the factions in pa6.

Atm, I still say expect only rules.


I will add this.

Ghaz will be a standalone model.
A primarch tier release.

As of now nothing had been officially stated about pa6.


So late all be old wolf scouts, watch and wait patiently. :)

It seems like most of the PA's do right be the factions, so I'm excited to see what happens for wolves

PA 6 is clearly all about the 13th company since it's been lost in the Warp...

 

I'll be happy if it includes Guard as well mind you.

If indeed PA 6 will focus on 13th company, I hope they don't mess up the mythos of the wulfen anymore than they already have. 

 

Honestly I'm just expecting yet another Pyrrhic "victory" where nothing of note happens, the Wolves probably take more heavy losses and see more "visions of Russ" or something suitably baity without fully committing.

If pa6 has ghaz in it? I expect imperials to be defeated

Especially if it's beast ghaz.

Ghaz is going to get the ball starting with the next event I expect. I am holding back expectations about Ragnar or SW model, unless they announce a box. The Imperium is going to lose this battle, it has to for the story to move on quickly.
