his face.. his hair... something seems.. off
tekton
@tekton
Jan 28 16:00
the proportion seems off on both
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 28 16:00
the pose is a bit weird for that jumpy-stabby-thing he's doing
tekton
@tekton
Jan 28 16:00
that head shape and those shoulders don't seem to be the same person

Also the article on genestealer cults for today does not fill me with any great hope for a good codex
cult ambush got fucking gutted

Did you expect anything else lol
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 28 16:04
I expected something closer to the index table
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 28 16:12
Eh just read it. Seems like it'd be fun
WindstormSCR

the major concern is that GSC are melee heavy, but will have some serious delivery difficulties
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 28 16:23
well half your army can deep strike...
and the other half are deployed after you know who's going first, and where your opponent's units are
blip system looks good. not sure about the deep strike until we get confirmation what a "Cult Ambush roll" is
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 28 16:27
I don't there is one anymore
The rules that referred to it were on the KT model, right?
You can deploy underground (derp strike) and in Ambush. If in Ambush, deploy a sensor blip marker (or several if you want to spend the CP)
You can then pay additional CP to set up a unit in DS when blips are revealed
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 28 16:29
yeah, the keelermorph, which we can assume is in the codex
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 28 16:29
And they're revealed at start of your movement (if you're the GSC player and go first)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 28 16:29
gets +3 to ambush rolls
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 28 16:29
They are all also revealed at the end of opponent's movement phase (if GSC player goes second)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 28 16:30
yep. it's basically hidden deployment, but much better
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 28 16:32
Yeah...not sure what that "adds 3 to CA rolls" is for the Kelermorph
There's no mention of any rolls on the CA table in the rules preview for it
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 28 16:33
you reckon it's just lefty doesnt know what righty is doing?
i.e. a colossal blunder
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 28 16:35
Eh, a blunder, but not colossal.
KT is coming out 2 weeks before GSC codex yea?
Out this saturday, GSC on pre-order this sat?
*1 week.
So for that 1 week, Index CA is present.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 28 16:36
why bother for the sake of 1 week though?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 28 16:36
Again, a blunder, but a logical one given their order of release.
I imagine it'll be erratted in the first faq
unless there is a table somewhere
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 28 16:36
Unless that wording just isn't in the codex to begin with
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jan 28 16:37
Oh true,
Didn't even consider that, since it'd be newer publication
Which would solve the problem and let players use the model for a week with rules that work.

is there anything in 40k with more then 3 degrading wound profiles?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 28 23:57
