Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse Faction Focus: Chaos Space Marines
Hello everyone !!
Second Faction focus for the game : Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse and this time it's for the Chaos Space Marines.
In Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse CSM are considered an hyprid Mid range/ Close combat force. Stacking Aura Abilities is the intended play style. So we can expect as much options than Loyal Space Marines but with Daemons replacing all the Primaris stuff.
Heretic Astartes get this special rule :
Khorne Lord of Skulls
Using the new Damage Phase mechanism, the lord of skull get a interesting ability :
So Activating this Detachment last is going to be Primordial !!! Check here if to read how is it going to work : https://war-of-sigmar.herokuapp.com/bloggings/3919
Abaddon The Despoiler
Being the Warmaster is really fitting in this game don't you think ? Also He deliver 2 very strong Aura that make him already auto include ^^
Also he get a simili invulnerable Save of 3+ using a D12 against all size Blast Marker. Because in this game you roll a Different Dices size against Small and Large Blast Marker, but we'll get more details on this tomorow.
Chaos Space Marines
Fielding squad of 20 Chaos Marines is so Fluffy!! In a Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse game it's a superb objective holder ! Also being 20 allow some Conga line exploit (0.5'' unit coherency limiting the effect) to benefit from multiple aura.
Chaos Space Marine Command Assets allow them to unleash tactical ploys and malefic powers that have some incredible effects on the battlefield.
With this power we learn that units can be Critically Damaged and suffer Malus. This Command asset allow a Slaanesh unit to ignore these malus and gain a 1 attack for each wounds marker. Transforming a Slaanesh Multi wound models in a Mowing BEAST (just before getting killed ^^)
Really like the direction Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse is taking. I hope it's going to be strategical enough to reward good play !! That's it for now, can't wait to learn more on the Damages and Save tomorow.
The Rumour Engine: Looks mechanical!
Howdy Guys and Girls :)
Na, what do you think about this weeks' Rumour Engine?
Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse Faction Focus: Space Marines
Hello again everyone !!
Shortly after releasing their Rules Preview Article we get more info with the Faction Focus: Space Marines. We already talked a little on the rules already so go read it first if you want to understand everything (go check here)
We are talking about Space Marines here, so i guess you can do pretty much everything from Fluffy Battle Company to Air Wing (with Thunderhawk ? ^^) Plastic Thunderhawk !( Sorry i had to say this ! ). But A dreadnought Spam is also suggested so i guess pretty much everything is open.
Info : Detachment Composed of only Space Marines will get And they Shall Know no Fear
So that mean that we can mix unit source in the same Detachement ? (would be fun ^^)
Off course pushing for the new Marines is expected ^^ we had the stats here : https://war-of-sigmar.herokuapp.com/bloggings/3919
Look like troop will also Capture Objectives in Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse.
Commander, bastion of inspiration and close-combat beast – you can’t go wrong with Roboute Guilliman (lol).
Wow Even in Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse the Emperor Sword is awesome. Wound everything on 4+ and Generate twice the amount of Blast Marker. But Guilliman is also a Leader and bring you some Battle Wide perks.
Master Of Battle is interesting because we already know that We can place Orders and : Advance, Aimed Fire and Assault are present .
Brand new tank on pre-orders on the same day. No full profile but we get to see his gun options :
I don't know how work Supercharge but the Sap and Sat on the Incinerator is interesting. On the other hand the Repulsor Executioner
have a special rule allowing to shoot twice if moved half his move.
I guess 4 shots of Heavy Laser Destroyer is strong ^^.
Top Command Assets
In Apocalypse, every army has access to Command Assets – tactical plays that represent your grand strategy that can change the tide of battle. Each Faction can use universal Command Assets, or Faction-specific choices that represent their distinctive abilities and the character of their sub-factions.
So Salamander Specific Assets focusing on Small Arms, Auto hit in half range Or a reroll for one attack. Interesting to see that some Assets have two usage.
Then we get to see a Psychic Power in the form of an Asset.
Very strong armor debuff, not sure how the Timing work here are Damage phase is the moment models are removed. We would need more details to see if it strong or not.
Anyway that's it for the Space Marines Preview.
Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse rules preview
Hello everyone !!
After the initial announcement of the Pre order date (here) . Warhammer made a preview of the Rules in Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse.
Building an army in Apocalypse mean that you are going BIG it's Apocalypse after all, bunch of troops, tank, knights. You can expect a lot more freedom than in Warhammer 40000 when list building. In this game everything resolve around Detachment. A detachment is a themed group of units or heroes ie : Outrider Detachments will be Fast attack stuff while
the Battalion Detachment is going to be Troops Focused. Except multiple detachment on each side (it's Apocalypse ^^)
You are going to activate all of the units in an Apocalypse Detachment at the same time – this means that they all move, shoot and fight together. An Apocalypse Detachment is lead by a Commander that can also be a Warlord (if heroes). Warlords generate Command Assets cards but units too far from their Apocalypse Detachment Commander risk routing out.
The big innovation is the introduction of the You Go i Go mechanism that mean that If you activate a Detachment then i do the same. It's a big plus to me when i don't have to wait 2h to play again ^^
Turn in Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse are split in Phases (as usual ^^ )
Another novelty in Games Workshop games is the Damage Phase. The key thing here is that the Damage phase comes after the Action phase. This means that each of your units will still get to be activated even if they have taken damage that may take them out of action.
Also all the models in a unit must finish in 1/2" coherency. To this end, Apocalypse movement trays will prove incredibly useful for moving your large infantry units and ensuring that all your models remain in coherency.
From the First Read the game feel a bit weird, we are going to alternate activating Big Detachment but wait the end of the turn to remove models. It completely reverse the advantage of being first player in a turn as you can now wait to see who's getting shot at before moving out. Ie : If your knight have taken 20 wounds already you can use him for a Glorious Charge because you already know he's dead anyway. I wonder if Some Strategic Assets are going to cancel death or stuff like that.
Let's take a look at the Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse Datasheets now :
Roughly the same than Warhammer 40k , Armor save are changed to remove the need to us AP everywhere. Attacks and Wounds are correlated to the squad size i think.
So SAP (Strength Against Personnel) and SAT (Strength Against Tanks) replace Strenght, Ap , Damage (Remember Epic ?^^). In the Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse ruleset you roll 1d12 per hit an try to beat the SAP or SAT (depending on the target). I think it's a genius Idea that could have worked for warhammer 40000 as well. This rule represent very well that a Lazcanon while super duper powerfull is not handy to target Infantry. When you think about the Heavy Bolter in Warhammer 40000 it could have been saved by the SAP !
Anyway, if you beat the SAT or SAP you place a small blast marker on the unit. (no details yet)
This short rules preview hyped me to the MAX !!! Can't wait to learn more !
