The 5+++ would only help if the Plasmapistol would deal a mortal wound. Unfortunately it just destroys him completely lol

So, assuming this is straight from the PA3 book.

The Angels of Death rule has the brackets telling you it’s on (pg.34). So we can assume it’s covered in the supplement and possibly being added to additional BA data sheets.

For his psychic powers, it says see Codex: Blood Angels. Which means the Sanguinary powers are not inside the supplement.

So what I’m guessing we will see for BA in the supplement are Doctrine rules of some kind, since those are tied to the Angels of Death rule.

What I don’t think we will see is a new psychic tree or any changes to the existing one BA have.

every primaris weapon seems to have that "revolver" part you mention. It´s Cawls design


All primaris plasma weapons, auto bolt rifles and assault bolters, anyway.
aswell as eliminators rifles, redemptor dreadnought weapons and adrax agatones hand flamer. Maybe it´s certain type of weapon or tech that gets this "revolver" part of sorts?

Considering Mephs plasma though, it seems to have rail over that part and doesn´t contain that flamer pilot light styled front like we seen on primaris now.

It’s literally the same plasma pistol as the limited captain with powerfist and the Left hand bionic one from the Hellblaster kit. Plasma has never had a pilot light, apart from the new cypher model.

Doesn't his 5+++ give him a chance to save himself if his PP overheats. Could be wrong, still wouldn't risk it though regardless.


Nah, he doesn’t take wounds, he’s destroyed outright. No saves, no nothin’.

Good to see he and Tigurius are on the same level.

I also see the finger smelling thing with the alt pose. I wonder if a slight turn of the head would fix it. Perhaps they simply replaced the arms for the photos and when built specifically, it will look better?

Very cool model regardless. Now just give us all Prima Dante!

The eliminators was a good catch and ditto on Agatone. I figured "redemptors" were included on the "all primaris plasma weapons" ;)

 

The Eliminator case is interesting, because it looks likes they attach their scopes directly onto the part. On auto bolt rifles the part also goes where the other types of bolt rifle puts their scopes, but didn't really put them directly onto it. Weird.

His 5+++ would help with the pistol. I feel like it should have been made a 4+++ but If he doesnt change point cost, he is still decent

Nope. It would if the pistol did wounds, but instead it yanks him off the table entirely.

 My company inform me that their new primaris brother just don't fit in the safety harnesses. And the Chaplain won't let us ride unless we buckle up.

Which is still hilariously stupid imo.

 

Because how is it that Khârn the Betrayer of all people can manage to fire a supercharged plasma pistol without dying is beyond me. :lol:

A little bit surprised they kept 'model slain' thing. It's so silly.

Other than that, he is as I expected, same as before bar Primaris buffs: +1 Attack/Wound.

Also, glad they went for the actual name of the sword.

I do wish that, for Imperial plasma, they’d take things back to 2nd Ed and have supercharge just make the gun unable to fire the next turn.

Or supercharge just deals a mortal wound to the user. It'd change nothing (except FNP rolls where applicable) for 1W infantry like Guardsmen and Tacticals, but it'd make a world of difference for, say, Hellblasters, and for Characters.

So something that crossed my mind just recently: on the turn he charges Mephiston wounds anything T9 or less on 2+.

He's a monster.

Given the spoilered material about what’s powering him, that seems absolutely appropriate! :lol:

I'm starting to think he's the closest thing the chapter will get to having Sanguinius back because he wrecks stuff like he's a Primarch.

Did Mephiston have a master-crafted plasma pistol back in the day? I guess Cawl isn't a master craftmen if his style of plasma pistol can one-shot Mephiston on misfire. tongue.png

 

It now occurs to me that Cawl should re-brand these new plasma weapons as grenades and just instruct allies to chuck them into the enemy's face instead.

I do not own the Codex Blood Angels so maybe they changed that thing there, but in the index he had a normal plasma pistol even before the primarisation.

If back in the day means when he first appeared in 2nd Ed, yes, he did. And it didn't blow up in his face either.

Imagine using the warp to deal 2 damage (smite) to something is more reliable AND safer for you than using some fancy technology ... but not because you are such a beast as a psyker but simply because for some reason the Plasma Pistol is the single most deadly thing in the galaxy if you are holding it in your hand. :D

I am arisen! I feel more powerful than ever… but I could really use a new gun.

Oh, shucks, totally forgot. Tell you what, we’ve got a bin of standard issue Primaris plasma pistols in the corner. None of the lieutenants have taken any. Feel free to grab one on your way out!

With how powerful Meph is it’s probably more destructive and safer for him to throw it the enemy than actually shoot it.

Call me Indy. It's less syllables.

Chucking an exploding plasma pistol at the enemy was a thing that popped up in the first Sisters novel....so not exactly a new, or bad, idea.

I think the only Primaris who can take the Plasma Pistol normally are Power Fist Captains and Hellblaster Sergeants.

Well, at least the regular shot on the Plasma Pistol is still decent.

You could, you know, like, not overcharge the pistol, right?

Or are people just finding something to complain about a long awaited update to a beloved model?
