Hello everyone !!
With the advent of Crusade rules pack in the 9th edition rules book, every Codex from now on should include Crusade rules for the army! With Necron and Space Marines codex going on pre-orders this week, WHTV teased some of the new content about the crusade.
Inside the codex are: Agendas, Requisitions, Battle Traits, Crusade Relics, and even Honorifics that are unique to the Adeptus Astartes.
Agendas are like Secondary objective for your Crusade force ! There are 5 Extras you can take from the codex
Four new Requisitions in the codex
Both are very cool and very Thematic! Too bad we don't have a multipurpose Primaris Captain/Chapter master with all the options the normal captain has...
These are the progressions you buy with XP :
The codex includes plenty of new Crusade Relics from each category (Artificer, Antiquity, and Legendary Relics) and even a Relic of the Primarch!
If Space Marines Crusade rules are easy to imagine it's another story for the Necrons. Even more, the Crusade Elements included in their codex are even more details added to faction Narrative!
Nice bit of info, so Crypteks have a lot of freedom (nor just a few named ones)
Gain titles and eventually acquire new abilities!
Different table for different weapons type!
The weird concept for the Necrons but heh ^^
Whoa, a Technologie that is controversial and dangerous by Necrons standard ^^ that is neat :D
In a nutshell, get used to big Crusade section in every codex! The rules block is becoming more and more interesting now. Because you can take stuff from Core book, Campaign setting or codex! it's a really fun way to play Warhammer 40000. Really reminded me of the old Necromunda or Bloodbowl open league!
What's really missing right now is a Character Generator! I want a Primaris Librarian with a jet pack and plasma gun! I know that in 40k rules stick to the model's kits, but it would be a lot more fun too with more freedom on units and heroes...
