Here I was worried they had shafted us to be after the new PA Mechanicus and Knights release. Although it is weird they didn't preview any of the Saga of the Beast stuff. I do think/hope Ghaz is a standalone model. Space Wolves could use some new stuff too.

Ghaz is the Saga of the Beast stuff. Most likely he’s all of it. It would be cool to get a primaris Ragnar but to me it’s more important we get rules that put us on par with the other Astartes.

Agreed good rules are more important than a model. As much as I like models, I am having greater and greater troubles keeping up with other armies.

Plus if you think about it, maybe if we don't get a model our chances of getting Russ or unique units may increase.

If we could get a good update like the Dark Angels, that would be nice. They received a lot of relevant stratagems, etc. that were largely demanded/on the wish-list of the player base. Would love to see that kind of attention for the Sons of Russ.

Personally, I would rather not have doctrines. But they do seem neat.


Honestly even if pa6 is just ghaz, it's still freaking ghaz!!! Ghaz!!

I'll be disappointed if we don't get any models for PA6 but it won't be the end of the world by any stretch.

As far rules go I'm pretty open to whatever GW decides at this point IMO we will get doctrines. I just think it will be easier to avoid the old marine +1 trope if the majority of chapters use combat tactics.

in truth, even a Primaris Ragnar, and Grimnar would likely be unable to take on A Beast Ghaz.

 

We would need a primarch tier character to take him on, and even then, beasts in the lore are actually stronger than primarchs.

Which named Primaris came out with PA1? Which one came with Psychic Awakening 2, which featured the Black Templars? Which named Primaris is going to be coming with PA5? What about for PA7?

There's a pattern of at least one new model coming out for each Psychic Awakening book, but not a named Primaris for each Chapter in a PA book. The Black Templars didn't even get a Primaris character/hero, and they still don't have a single one, not even a named Lieutenant/Battle Leader like Space Wolves already have, so there isn't even a named character/hero for every Chapter with its own Chapter Tactics.

So if Ghaz is all that comes out for Saga of the Beast, it doesn't break that pattern.

Brace yourselves for Space Wolves not getting anything except rules with PA6 (if SW are even in there - don't believe that GW actually stated that as a fact), and then if we do get a Rubiconed hero, that's gravy for us.

The only chapter that didn't get a named primaris is black templars.. Everybody else got one,and templars are a successor of imperial fists (who got one) ... unlike wolves who have their own codex and are first founding. There is definitely a pattern... Its very possible that we will get a named primaris, the thing that is more important though for me and the most of us here is the quality of rules in the book for wolves

They got a named primaris character but not via psychic awakening. They got theirs during their supplements, and they only have 1 unique model. Only Mephiston, and Lazarus were released for PA. So out of 5 books only 2 primaris, which actually makes our chances less likely to get a primaris. Of all the first founding chapters, they all have 1 new or old named Primaris including the wolves. The only chapters that break this rule is BA, DA, and UM.

We have to face the facts, PA6 (if we are in it) is not focused on us but the Orks. Ghaz will have his fight and probably win it.
