Finally get the Deathwing Companions, that was not a reasonable schedule at all.

 

Going to get the Luther novel I think, I am interested to see what happens with that. Been interested in that since it was announced.

Still no Night Lords terminators. It’s a bit silly at this point because I’m pretty sure after this week all the dark angel stuff will have been released

I'm very confused by Inferno Vol. 5 being listed for preorder, since I've got a copy sitting on my shelf right here.

I'm just here for The Reverie.

 

Might grab the new Titanicus splat whilst I'm at it though. The Orlock dice are almost identical to the ones I already have so I'll probably give those a miss - I think the tint is more brown as opposed to the silvery blue they had before.

I strongly recommend you grab Requiem Infernal in the mean time. It's a Warhammer Horror title in all but imprint and will very likely be connected to The Reverie in at least some references (as all of Fehervari’s stuff is).

 

 

AT book with no models, is a bit of a surprise but will be picking that up.

 

To be fair the turnaround time on this has been lightning quick after Defence of Ryza I think?

I like how they're making the open engine war cards for AT with "you never have to play the same mission twice" . Like, do they even know that the matched play mission and tertiaries make for an experience where neither player is ever playing the same mission as each other and will be very hard to play again?

I didn't think that consistently random missions were lacking in AT, let alone a part of the game that needed to be doubled down on.

I don't play AT but the way I read the article it soundeds like a set of cards that replicate existing tables. Faster than flicking through books and rolling dice, but not new.

You've had multiple weeks of Marines stuff, on the back of an edition launch that also had a load of Marine stuff. Be patient. It's what every non-Marine player or fan of other GW game has to do.

Obviously we don't know until they tell us, but it looks increasingly likely that model releases will be accompanying the Codex supplements as they come out, so it might well be December or even early next year before all the revealed SM kits get released.

Dont play or intend to collect DA.

 

But those Companions are so pretty that I might get a squad just for the eye-candy.

I think it's more at this point they're just dragging out the releases as much as possible.

 

Especially since one of the kits (Assault Intercessors) is an important one for a lot of Chapters.

I'm good with the Assault Ints I got. I was rather hoping for the dope Eradicator kit and maybe Heavy Ints, Speeders and the Gladiator. But yeah, seems like it's another one of the dragged out releases. Which is no surprise, given how much stuff from all the previews this year needs to be released overall.

Oh its definitely a filler release, but the core AT matched play scenario has some glaring balance problems, it would be handy to have a simple alternative, especially with some random environmental effects for fun.

But yeah filler is kinda good, id guess they would release minis if they could be at least we are getting something, which shows SG still care :D 

Orlocks sooner than id suspected is good too :)

Hey some harmless/easily ignored support that includes new legios is better than none. I just find it funny how they're trying to sell the mission cards.

There's no need to be passive aggressive. Like Gederas said, my complaint is that they're dragging it out. I am simply expressing my irritation that they're waiting to release these two kits in particular. I'm sympathetic to the plight of non-marine players; I think that SM get too much attention, and I would be perfectly happy if Primaris never received another release wave. I also understand that this has happened with Xenos stuff, like the Banshees and Incubi. Ghazkgull should've received a standalone release months ago.

That would be somewhat frustrating. I understand steadily releasing kits, but holding them back just so they release alongside supplements (that not everyone will use) is a bit much.

They are mostly focusing on Necrons right now, with some smaller kits for SM. Especially with Deathwatch and Space Wolves in November, that will likely be where we see many of the kits.

 

Most of what they've rolled out for SM is the 'pre-release' wave that has points in CA. My guess is there was to be a small teaser release for SM, then the two codices and the Necron release, then the SM release, but the first two were merged together due to timeline constraints.

Well... I now suspect that BA and SW wont be getting anything outside of some repackaging out of this (and likely the edition). Kinda severely let down but thems the breaks (before I get devoured, I am talking among SM releases, I know alot of other factions really need the space). 

 

Combine this with the fact that the DA got a later release and the fact that they cant possibly still be releasing vanilla Primaris by then, it looks like they will be the big winners from the odd chapters this edition I think.

 

Hmm... combine it with Luther, the HH timing and the Lion's fairly recent novel...

 

I sense the robed eunuchs (my favorite of their insetting nicknames) are going to get some really shiny toys soon. I dont think the Lion (because at this junction, I dont think another loyalist Primarch is coming back for at least five more years), but they are definitely getting something. 

 

EDIT: The brightest side for me in this is that a repackaged Ragnar would at least mean a 360 of him on GW, which works for me since I have been agonizing on him out of uncertainty.
