Please please let there be rules for Mechanicum units for 40k in the Forgeworld books. I want to play my Thallax, Castelax, Thanatar and Co in 40k.

This compendium is jam-packed full of updated datasheets and new rules designed to bring all of the amazing kits designed by Forge World right up to speed with the new edition. As well as loads of updated units and weapons profiles, you’ll also find a brand-new Regimental Doctrine for the mighty Death Korps of Krieg…

 

…as well as the return of some old favourites such as the Ork Warboss on Bike – looks like the Meks have finally fixed his ride. Waaagh!

 

 

Ork Warboss on Bike should really be in the core codex for the army.

Ork Warboss on Bike doesn't exist as a plastic model

They should considering they still sell the Grey Knights land raider redeemer conversion kit last time I was on the webstore.

Glad they specifically mentioned the ork warboss on bike considering I just finished painting what wouldve otherwise been an expensive resin paperweight

All the codices previewed were 2020, so presumably this will be too.

I really want to see the contents page for this book, I hope it includes all the FW custodes, SOS and mechanic models.

Hoping against hope for Badab War chapter and character rules with this, but seems likely those are no more. With the possible exception of the ones that have models, like bray'arth and sevrin loth.

Pretty sure I saw a corsair in the preview video. I'm sure they haven't been forgotten.

RIP Shen, I had just picked up a model and bits to do a conversion, when the FAQ came out with no points in it I paused to wait and see

I didnt see any, just a craftworlds Revenant? My hope is the studio is a bit more contentious than FW was, which they generally are but not getting a mention when they talk about Death Korps does not bode well for the other armies :(

Elysians are not sold anymore, right? So that's one army gone.

It’s gonna be super disappointing if this doesn’t have rules for the Mechanicum stuff. Hopefully it will fix the points on hellforged leviathans though.

"Hey, what about this tank who almost has the offensive output of 2 Leman Russes, is almost as resilient as 2 Leman Russes, but costs as much as 3 Leman Russes - Doesn't it sound like an INCREDIBLY GOOD DEAL!? Bai it naow!" 

*Sigh*
I just hope my Macharius Battle Tank will be somewhat valid with this update.
It's been on the shelf for so long that the dust has pretty much given it urban camo ...
