Same, I find it very difficult to believe that SW won't get a new/updated primaris character. Those Orks vs SW boxset rumour have persisted for so long and with a new Ghaz and several orky looking rumour engines it wouldn't surprise me if it all materialises in March. Of course, the SW side of that box might be a bit sad in comparison then with only a new character being the new sculpt on their side. However, Ghaz is probably not going in the box either IMO due to him becoming the flagship ork product and we know that the primarchs sell exceptionally well.  

 

But a new KFF mek, accompanied with skarboy/'ardboy models (that RE boot) and potentially kommandos (RE binoculars) and/or something that hasn't even been teased versus new SW char and random primaris stuff doesn't seem all that crazy to me. PA6 is probably a two-weeker IMO since Ghaz will have his own release slot and not swamped in with all the new PA rules I'd imagine.

Am tempted to overanalyse that every type of vehicle mentioned in the story was named eg predator, whirlwind, but it just said gunship...primaris flyers are therefore a million percent confirmed

 

Picked up on this myself. Every vehicle present was name dropped except the flyers. They were also mentioned as 'sleek' whereas they have never been mentioned that before.

 

Interesting all the same.

You know, there have been rumors of a space wolves vs. orks boxset floating around in the past as well as primaris ragnar and beast sized ghaz. Not to mention the rumor engine picture of the possible ork boot from a few weeks back. Also, we've already had a boxset in psychic awakening with the blood of the Phoenix box-- maybe we will be getting another box set with this books release? Not like its outside the realm of possibility.

Heck, just because we know there's a Makari and Friend release coming hardly disproves Ragnar just because other recent books have only had 1.  After all, the first book had what, 2 characters and 1 unit (or was it two?  Forget if the Incubi were new or just a rebox).  And we also have a pretty good inkling Engine War will have a lot of new stuff for Admech.  So no reason this couldn't too.

Im definitely leaning on the side of Boxset with Ghaz and a new unit and Prime Ragnar and existing Primaris unit

If the Wolves are the only first founding Chapter left without a named Primaris character, Ragnar or otherwise, it'll be an actual sign that GW have gone completely nuts.

 

That or it's coming later. Or it means Russ is coming.

 

You know, one of the three.

Iam also leaning on a boxset for 3 reasons
1. Spacewolves will be the only first founding chapter with no named primaris (the icepelt guy is already in the start collecting and dark angels and blood angels got leutenants like icepelt plus named primaris)
2. There is a rumor engine image of an ork boot...and the sw side can easily get a generic primaris squad with a new datasheet for example... greyhunter intercessors (like they did with death company intercessors)
3.locking gaz and let's say ragnar in a box set = sold out the first nanoseconds of its preorder

I'm still saying, ghaz only. Only rules for wolves.

It's better to set expectations low.

I wonder if SW get a form of "Hunter's Instincts" for their Super Doctrine-esque ability; something along the lines of being able to Outflank within 9" of a board edge/6" of an enemy and/or pushing enemy deep strikers out to 12" naturally. That would hard counter a lot of forces for sure, but it would be an interesting play on their innate abilities and not just another smashy chapter that roids out*.

 

 

*Sure, I'm a bit biased, but I do think the stabby marines tend to be a bit too similar at times. 


Call me Indy. It's less syllables.

Given the seriously subpar genestealer cults 'update' and the FAQ nerf BA got to make them strictly worse than codex marines, amongst others,..

 

Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment, etc.

Too optimistic by half.

 

it will be Markari and a copy and paste set of rules for the Wolves just like their fantastic codex release that was messed up and errated before release msn-wink.gif

Lmao, yes, I'm sure Games Workshop will totally put a Xenos faction in the spotlight and lavish attention on them, leaving the MARINES to languish. Totally. That's been the precedent for PA so far, absolutely.

I mean... Phoenix Rising totally had Space Marines galore in it... just saying.  

 

(Yes, I know I defended the wolves earlier, but I agree it could easily go the other way too!)

It seems the footnotes confirm that Makari is just a name Ghaz gives to his personal Grots.

 

Also the "Goff Gretchin" rule seems to imply that Ghaz will continue to be Goff only as well..

Makari is hilarious. A 4 wound grot with S/T 3, a 2++, a melee weapon that can do d3 mortal wounds, and he allows grots to use his oh-so-high leadership of 6? I cant wait to see his points. A shame he's a Goff, I'd run him just for laughs.

I hope he turns out to be an HQ character, just so we can run grot hordes for giggles.
