Alright, the thunder hammer in the base squad is great - hand flamer, power fist, power swords as well, according to the stream. Where's the power axe, though?

With so many spare options, it means I'm gonna have plenty of options to diversify some of my Indomitus doubles. Can't wait!

Amy pics of the power sword?

 

Mentioned on WarCom and on stream, but no pictures yet - I wouldn't expect it to be too much of a departure from the old Tactical Squad power sword, though.

I am a big fan of the vambraces on the newer kits. It flattens the arm some, and I've been wanting to add HH-style checkers to my Dark Angels.

Good thing I didn't finish building all my Indomitus guys, time to scour the bits boxes for fists and hammers.

well i guess i dont need to scour ebay for power weapon bits to use on Intercessors anymore. Glad that the kit includes all weapon options for them.

i specifically didn't build 5 of the indomitus ones so i could mix and match :P

 

These look as good as expected tbh, some interesting bits in there. Doesn't look like any option for extra special melee weapons which is a shame (was really hoping for two)

Nice to see the additional weapon options included. Sad that there doesn't appear to be an axe option.

No axe or maul, indeed. To be honest though, I think the thunder hammer looks like being by far the best option. If it's really D4 then it would be hard to justify anything else. I guess if you needed to save points.

 

You can see the power fist in the preview video about space marines.

 

You can briefly see the sword on the Blood angel bit of the previews of the other 4 codexes. Go to about 0:23.

This also tells us that you'll be allowed to take assault intercessors in the death company. The image appears to show a 10-man squad of DC intercessors, half with rifles and half with chainswords.

I can think of another chapter who wants to be able to field intercessors like that...

Cheers man but I can barely make it. If it's in the style of the new heavy gravis captain, it will be fine (at least the guard)

So these have the Close Support designator on their pads - so maybe the location in the Table of Contents doesn't actually signify where the units fall? Or is there a screw up in the decal work? This is the third (?) time they've used that designator (Indomitus/starter boxes, the paint Kit with extra poses, and now the multi-part).

The Heavy Intercessors clearly bear the up arrow Battleline designator on those models.

The company role isn't the same as the Force Org role. It's been separated multiple times. Otherwise Aggressors would be Heavy Support, Reivers and Incursors would be Fast Attack.

Yeah, Assault Intercessors are Close Support and Heavy Intercessors are Battleline, but rules-wise they are both Troops and are thus listed in that section.

I think the idea with that is you could conceivably field an assault force, like the 8th reserve company.

They never were. That would be a fast attack option in thr future perhaps.
