Another one I got to use like once in all of 8th though I played an absurd amount. It hurts to say but If we were only going to get a handful of strats I’m ok with lone wolf moving to crusade.

ya, but still. *sad puppy face*.

VBG with lone wolf strat popped .

Yeah especially if you only started with a couple of characters so they didn't pick the assassinate secondary.

It does belong in crusade though, and it makes so much more sense than the last survivor immediately hulking up, or in 5th when lots of armies ran 3 in terminator armor.

He did nothing but it was fun

So if I have a Wolf Guard pack leader with 2 Lightning Claws, and I upgrade 1 to a Frost Weapon, do all the attacks get the bonus S & D? All but one of the attacks? Half of them?

I used touch of the wild exactly once. Thanks a lot COVID.


In a Crusade game, Intercessor Pack Leader with Thunder Hammer was lone survivor of his pack. Popped Lone Wolf. Next turn charged in. Popped Touch of the Wild. Wiped out Nightlord Sorcerer in Terminator Armor and a unit of Warptalons. My friend was shocked, haha.

It literally says what to do in the preview...BOTH weapons get the frost benefit

Is ‘sergeant relic’ only for wolfguard or any sergeant? Because Morkai’s Teeth Bolts on a Heavy Intercessor with a 42” range executor bolt rifle is quite nice.

Master crafted Plasma Exterminators not too shabby either.

As far as I can tell thane of the retinue would allow exactly that. Which is awesome because I love morkais teeth But it always seemed like a waste on a master crafter stalker lt.

Bear in mind that that would only apply to one of the Sergeants' guns.

Wolf Tail Talisman is another Relic that would go nicely on any Pack Leader expecting to drop into the thick of the action. Nerf you enemy's psykers and leave your Characters free to tool up with more hitty items. More situational though I will agree.

Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.

A master crafted Cyclone missile launcher on a TDAWG in a Long Fang pack could be quite interesting as well.
I live to drink the blood of the innocents from goblets made of human skulls. I love to hear the tattered lamentations of those I've crushed, to see a shattered bleeding hulk of a once powerful man crawl limply to me on all fours to lick my hobnailed boot and beg for a quick and merciful dispatchment. I thrill with the power granted by me via foul incantations so unholy that their mere utterance blackens the lungs. Tears of joy greet my bloodstained cheeks when I inhale the pungent aroma of flayed flesh smouldering upon the wooden shards of blasted farmhouses, while my ears are filled with the piteous cries of terrified peasants scattering before my arcing blade. In all honestly, my goal within any situation is to become a solid mass of scar tissue and to stand atop a pile of indiscriminate human remains taunting the Gods themselves with my hideous unearthly strength.

Im just happy the Armor of Russ stayed intact. I can still put it on a Judiciar and double freeze bubble someones melee mob.

 

It only has to work once to be hilarious. :D

Armor of Russ actually got better because it gives a 2+ save in addition to the 4++. I also like that we have three ways to give fights last to opposing units.

For sure. I was actually genuinely concerned it was going to flat out go away.

Random question with Thane of the Retinue - is using that strat considered to be an "extra" Relic or do you have to buy the relic on top?

 

My assumption is the former but Battlescribe is currently telling me I have too many relics!

The darks greatest gift is the light itself: as days are defined by the nights that divide them, as stars are defined by the infinite dark through which they wheel, the dark embraces the light, and brings forth from the center of itself. With each victory of the light, it is the dark that wins.

The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.

BattleScribe gets things wrong quite often

I play it as 1 CP total...just like other marines have in the past

My TO agreed

Run it by whoever you play to confirm

Anyone with Sgt or pack leader in their profile

Wolf guard pack leaders are eligible.

This means the LF wolf guard terminator pack leader with an assault cannon can be buffed to have 12 BS2 shots with S6 AP1 D2 (signum + Armorium cherub + master crafted)

What are peoples thoughts on Veteran Intercessors? I like auto rifle intercessors and assault intercessors, but it seems as if one or the other are better served as the veteran variety for the extra attack.

Also, how are you outfitting your intercessor sergeants? Is the power fist or hammer automatic even for midfield shooty squads or is the chainsword getting good results as well? I like pushing my auto squads toward the midfield before getting stuck in around turn 4.

Veteran intercessors are no longer troops so I think other units are better

What made them good before was obsec + filling the battalion troop tax + combat ability

Rather have bladeguard for similar points with current codex and stratagems
