Unless a primaris killteam is just a primaris that can take any primaris variant weapon :/
Hellblaster, inceptor etc
Which would be boring.
But not unsurprising

I hope it’s good- and there’s a few new units not just Primaris
That flyer alone is awesome enough to paint, would be great to have a reason to use it ;)

Imagine a kill team that you could take any combination of any models with any weapons, with no minimum requirement apart from "it must have 5 bodies" or something - that would be pretty groovy :+1:
But extremely unlikely

rumor is its mix any primaris in one squad, eg can have intercessors, hellblasters and even agressors on one squad

i'd love to see them mix primaris and non-primaris into kill teams. unless there's some strange lore reason that they cant do this?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 30 2018 10:42
Yeah, I'd love that too... No idea why they couldn't be in the same team

Dunno, but it's "interesting" that you have to change your unit size in in increments...
I just really don't see the point of it. There's literally no validation of any kind.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 30 2018 11:16
yeah, its really only a tiny step above writing the list yourself
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Apr 30 2018 11:17
I'm not sure it's even better than that. At least if i write it myself, I'll do some basic checking of legality.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 30 2018 11:19
yeah true, at least you're actually reading the damn army book
the guard section is using index datasheets...
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Apr 30 2018 11:23
and you can take 5 HWTs in an Infantry Squad apparently?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm

let's start reporting issues!! :)
Combat Roster says I can so it must be true!

Combatroster came when the whw announcements did
It’s just a direct copy of what the guy had on his site
Ie: useless

Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 30 2018 12:42
yeah, I was just going to post a link but you're all ahead of me (surprise!!)
looks like a massive waste of someones' time

jeez, building any non-codex space marines is a huge pain

@alphalas
Apr 30 2018 13:12
Yeahhhhh this is nice just for having a PL counter
Otherwise pretty much useless

"oh a official list builder"
"Wait, no tactical marines for Dark Angels?"
"Ok, scouts.... oh nice, I can choose between 4 and 9! Splendid!

Lol.

I can see BCB having a heartattack....

What’s more, you’ll be able to assemble your Primaris Space Marines into Fortis Kill Teams – mixed formations that allow you to combine the strengths of Intercessors, Reivers, Aggressors and Inceptors into a cohesive and powerful whole.

looks like you were right, @CloverFox

Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 30 2018 15:21
Which means probably bolter Primaris will have access to special issue ammo
Heh
I’ll laugh if bolter inceptors get SIA; my local DW player runs like 6 Plasma Inceptors with his DW
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 30 2018 15:54
"an expanded list of weapons that can use Special Issue Ammunition"
this makes me happy that I've not jumped into buying too many primaris yet
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 30 2018 16:11
so i just got a box of elysians from FW
this is seriously the first guard army i’ve had that having cadences on a playlist feels appropriate for
tekton
@tekton
Apr 30 2018 16:12
@alphalas why so?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 30 2018 16:25
well when i was in basic 3/4 of the cadences we sang were about airborne
so now that i have an army that is the 41st milenium equivilents of airborne, it just… feels right
tekton
@tekton
Apr 30 2018 16:34

Apr 30 2018 21:03
yup, it was a pipe dream to expect anything less...
but then we collect all these bits of metal and plastic because we're all dreamers in reality :wink:
