The Psychic Awakening has already engulfed the Aeldari, as well as the Black Templars and Heretic Astartes. Who could be next to feel its effects? The words ‘Blood of Baal’ are being whispered across Imperium Nihilus, and they may give you a clue…


Looks like the Blood Angels will be facing the Tyranids again soon. You can see what happened last time they fought – on Baal itself – in Guy Haley’s Space Marine Conquests novel The Devastation of Baal.

Edit: PA 2 Didnt even hit the shelves and they already hyping PA3. Think this says alot lol.

That's disappointing. I was hoping they'd reserve the Tyranids to face off against the Orks, and give us a bit more of a glimpse at Octarius.

That video needs a "Greetings from Baal" and "Wish you were here" in one of those cheesy postcard fonts.

 

And in other news, French rumours still nailing it. I really hope Ghaz and Ragnar don't turn out to be the one dud of all the predictions.

Hey I'm looking forward to it! But this is the 2nd tease of mephiston. Yeah, I'm ready to see the model now and he's like 2 weeks away.

Eesh, that's just dull. Although I suppose it's significantly better than throwing them against the Thousand Sons again.

It also apparently means new Primaris Ragnar from the rumors though so... Worth it. In my opinion anyways. I forget if the rumors say anything on Ghaz.

Kinda sad that they went BA vs Nids again. Would have been good to have them facing chaos (but they did BT vs chaos) considering the old animosity between BA and BL, but i guess they decided it should be UM vs BL these days.

 

Still, we knew this was what was coming thanks to french rumours so at least it doesn't come as a surprise.

 

Will be interesting to see what this will mean for things.

What does it say?

The content hose has no breaks!

How much of a filler release it was. My grip with PA2. And people having to wait 2 weeks for it for some reason.

Nids are getting the BT treatment by the way. Just rules according to rumours.

Personally i would have prefered someone else to Mephiston. Was never a fan of the design. Would love a Sanguinor.

Hype for Mephiston. I’ve always loved his story and the concept of his model but it just aged terribly. I’m really excited to see the new one.

I’ve always liked the pomp of Blood Angels, but have never committed due to them always seeming to fall behind.

Will be an interesting portent to the remaining marine books - I’ll laugh my face off if they don’t get doctrines in this in a grim way. We’ll see.

Curious what they open up for nids.

I think both PA2 and PA3 are filler. No real model releases for either. And rumors putting a box set for PA4 could explain the close releases of PA2 and PA3.

We now know that both BA and Tyranids will be in this one but we still could see daemons. At least khorne. The worlds on fire and it’s nids corpses on the ground. I’m also wanting Necrons to come out as well. The nids v BA v Necrons is always a good tale.

Dante was my first choice. Or a new character would have been nice.

But I do love mephiston too. He is an interesting character and I like fighter mages -mephy being the closest thing to one in the game haha.


Ideally I'd like to see:
- BA "chapter tactic" update to include a small additional bonus like the core marine ones
- Successor rules - replace the small bonus with something else, everyone has to have red thirst.
- litanies of blood for chaplains
- something akin to doctrine rules.
- maybe a new relic or two
- maybe some new stratagems

I'd like to be able to make Intercessors Veterans with a Stratagem. Not because of rules, in fact I don't even remember what it gives them, but I just want to have a squad of Primaris Veterans.

 

I'm also looking forward to an update to our Chapter Structure. Who is the Captain/Lieutenant/etc. of what nowadays. Would be interesting to see if there are any changes.

I agree with Sete's sentiment - especially with regards to the lore. On one hand, it is nice that the PA books are in rapid succession; it gives us things to look forward to, keeps the hype train rolling, etc. But it also reinforces the low quality of these books. I'd much rather a few months between each installment if it meant that each campaign supplement came with some new art, a fully fleshed out story of more than a dozen pages, and a few accompanying kits. It is pretty amusing that in this allegedly epic narrative supplements are coming so quickly that we have previews for one before another even comes out. None of these books feel like an "event", just another release that will be hyped up for 2 weeks and then immediately forgotten about.

 

On a more positive note, I'm looking forward to seeing Mephiston in the flesh. Primaris adaptations have been a bit hit or miss for me, but I have a feeling that this is going to be a good one.

What are people thinking of a Doctrine for the Blood Angels? BT got one, so I see no reason as to why the BA wouldn't get one, especially as they're totally without at the moment.

Since BT are very likely not in PA3, perhaps we should just assume that any BT discussion of any kind is off-topic and move on...

Personally, I've moved beyond seeing these books as anything other than a vehicle for mid-cycle rules updates. I'm interested to see what BA will get rules-wise, since I may have a Primaris Apothecary that needs turning into a Sanguinary Priest about then.

I really want to see how GW is looking to handle Successor Chapters (especially Primaris-only ones) for BA (and maybe DA & SW) in PA3 - I'm really hoping they put some good thought into them (although I'm not expecting so at this stage), but if they don't have expanding information on them, at least open up some options for them to better represent BA lineage - Inferno pistols for Primaris LTs, maybe a Death Mask option, etc.
