Privateer Press insider : Weapons Crew
Hello everyone !!
PP released a new insider, and this is about weapons team !!
extra spoiler by MrSoled on the forum :
Cygnar’s Trencher Chain Gun went through a devastating metamorphosis into a true light machine gun. With Strafe retired to the dustbin of history, the weapon features an impressive d3+1 ROF. When coupled with the Grunt’s Ammo Feeder special action, which now boosts the Gunner’s ranged attack damage rolls against warrior models, it really makes that POW 10 count. With a +1 bump in Trencher RAT and having maintained Dig In, Covering Fire, and Advance Deployment , this unit is a steal for 5 points.
Trencher Cannon: Still AoE 3. It lost Range Finder. It also lost Advanced Deployment because putting your artillery in front of the front lines made less sense to us when we thought about it in retrospect (the same is not true of the Chain Gun Crew which we want to see perced on the edge of No Man's Land). It did, however, pick up Brutal Damage... Which when we play tested it resulted in its RNG dropping to 13. Still, not bad with an effective range of 17" with its crew.
Stormsmith Storm Tower: This was among the least changed weapon crews in the game. It lost Range Finder. They kept their effective SPD of 4 and can now move and fire. They also picked up a point of RAT.
In a nutshell :
-Weapon teams can move and fire.
- Cygnar canon crew still bad (and ae 3)
- Skorne catapult is terribad :D
Yea i know we have to wait for the rest of cards to see the different combo ! But i am far from impressed :/
PP tell us they have play tested all sort of weapon team and make loads of round table before making a decision ...but they finished with this trencher canon crew design :
-Lost 2 range and can move and fire
- have dig in as all trencher but lost advanced deployment
- gain 1 rat but lost the +2 to hit range finder.
-Gained brutal damage on main target (1d6)
I am sorry but there is something wrong with it !!!
They claim they want more cygnar regular trooper and less merc but check the horgenHold canon (in the pic below) How the cygnar stuff can compare (unless the canon crew cost 3 mkIII points)
Anyway weapons team are not an important part of the game so it's no big deal ;) but after hearing than all the unit were made good in their respective "Niche" i had hope....Because explain to me what is the skorne catapult niche ? (Eating your timer while resolving completely random shot?)
I'll wait and see ;)

Dawn of War III: Trailer!
DAWN OF WAR III !!!
""This is the Dawn of War that fans have been waiting for," - executive producer Stephen MacDonald. "Our biggest units ever? Check. Giant orbital lasers? Check. Base-building, epic heroes, huge battles, it’s all in there. Get ready for the biggest Dawn of War yet. For the Emperor!"
"Dawn of War 3 immerses players in the escalating brutality of galactic warfare, where they will lead elite hero units and colossal armies to victory, or oblivion,"
"Powerful super-walkers will tower over the front lines as screen-shaking assaults blister the battlefield in an all-out, over-the-top spectacle worthy of the iconic Games Workshop Warhammer 40,000 universe."
Dawn of War 3 "combines the epic scale of Dawn of War, with the cusomisation and elite heroes of Dawn of War 2."
"The result is a best-in-class edition giving players the rich strategic experience, stunning visuals, and catastrophic surprises that they’ve come to expect as Relic brings the franchise into the modern era."
Dawn of War 3 is expected for release on PC."
Only 3 races: Space Marines, Eldar, Orks. In Dawn of War III you will have no choice but to face your foes when a catastrophic weapon is found on the mysterious world of Acheron.
Heroes Return: Gabriel Angelos (Space Marines), Farseer Macha (Eldar), Gorgutz (Orks)
Big warmachines: Imperial Knight (Space Marine), Gorkanaut (Ork), Wraithknight (Eldar).
One Army to rule: Build your own universal army from the very first moment you are matched in a melee. Progress through battle after battle with loyal troops by your side across both challenging campaign missions and dominating multiplayer maps.
Space Marines, Orks and Eldar. The campaign moves between factions from mission to mission as each army converges on the same planet to retrieve a mysterious weapon. All of the factions have their own collection of heroes, elites, super units and super abilities that you develop over the course of the story. Gabriel Angelos returns to lead the Blood Ravens, and he'll tee off against an Eldar Farseer and an Ork Warlord.
Bases are back!
