Zooming in a fair bit, but it seems the praetors from the box have been trimmed back a bit (and had weapon swaps) and don't look too bad really. Would have loved some closer shots of them.

Yeah, the pictured WS army has some nice subtle conversions of the base box.

Is this the one you're after?

It doesn't look like to much work to de-bling the model

While I'm loving the more light hearted tone of these articles, it feels like they went a bit overboard with this one.

Yes, that's great! That looks way better. I think the capes have been removed of both of them and it just cleans them up a bit.

I find myself in agreement.


Makes me fear the Wolves (because my favourite Legion) and Thousand Sons (because "NERDS!").

I wouldn't worry too much about it, it's just an article at the end of the day.

 

As they quickly adopted it this way of writing, if they think it's not working, they'll just as quickly drop it.

Ooh, the Mk6 look nice painted as White Scars - another potential choice to do when I get the new set. Only thing is, painting white :eek: and having to get loads of bikes (expensive! :rolleyes:)

It's a bit odd and a shame that they didn't reveal the Legion trait. I wonder why? :huh:

Yeah, really strange.

People like to whinge and moan about "the good old days," when things "were cool" and now somehow aren't.
One would think that this energy would be better invested in pursuing things one finds more to one's liking.
Then again, common sense doesn't seem to be all that common.

The trait is extremely boring on its own, but can add up for a lot of impact:

+1 movement on everything, roll 2 dice and discard the lowest for first turn and seize.

That being said, the white scars units currently feel a bit WIP. Golden keshig still feel very...unfocused in their role, and are slower than normal jetbikes because of their 2+.

A lot of the power of the legion seems to be bound up in the easy access to outflank and their execution of it. Feels a little one-trick, in a way only BA really follow (as they also seem to be pushed towards reserve charging).

The WS army shown is really beautiful.

 

A whip and nae-nae reference in this article was unexpected.


Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

By tetsubo, I presume you mean the massive two handed maul? If so, that bit is actually from a Dark Angels kit. The ravenwing knights iirc.

Just read the rules part and look at any art or painted miniatures in there. There's hardly anything else they're going to say that's interesting to anyone already familiar with the Horus Heresy setting.

Here's the thing, we can crack jokes about elitism (and it was an expensive niche, in an expensive hobby anyway...) but if a company wants to present it's product as a joke, it will be seen as such.

You would think that GW would remember that from AoS, but here we are.

The vast majority of players, are not going to be invested in the lore, are not going to be invested into the setting, and are going to be introduced via WH Community, Twitter, and Memes.

So yes, we can (well not I) decry 'HH Elitism' and have a laugh, but I'd rather they show some respect for the setting.

Now excuse me, while I turn my nose up at their article, and go make a tea.

I personally think some levity is always healthy.

Notice 'some'.

I think the Warcom is generally not very knowledgeable and I don't think it is a shocking discovery that mockery is as usefull for covering ignorance as it is for relieving stress.

My personal preference is 4/5 serious and 1/5 levity.

You can sell people on stuff without sounding like you are trying to sell them tickets for a stand up routine.

But I do think it is a bit of a curve with some people, alot of people are introduced with memes and lowbrow humour to stuff and slowly grow to love and understand the setting. Then you basically grow to apathetic to the humour channels except for the ones you startef with because nostalgia is a hell of a drug.

I do find it weird how many forums I find people being so disdainful of highbrow language and themes in though. Come on folks, pearls and pretty and tea has been a staple for centuries. Nothing wrong them!

That's just my two cents though, I will hardly begrudge those that disagree.

As for the rules themselves, they look fine to me although I must be getting senile because I can't for the life of me remember if the elites part used to be in the Rite.

That paint formula is gorgeous though and seems fairly simple for all that I associate painting white with fear and anxiety lol.
