hello everyone !!

Well, well, well, isn't this just perfect? Lion El'Jonson, the mighty Primarch of the Dark Angels, has finally been given rules, but not without a twist. Today, we look at the Lion's rules reveal and the somewhat perplexing decision to bundle him with three generic Bladeguard models in his own box. Oh, and did I mention that his rules will only be valid for a measly four months? Let's dive into the details!

As the second loyalist Primarch to enter the Warhammer 40,000 fray, it's no surprise that Lion El'Jonson is a power house in melee combat. It's only fitting for a Primarch, after all. But what's this about him coming in a box with three generic Bladeguard models? It seems that Games Workshop has decided that the Lion needs some babysitting duties to keep him occupied. Or perhaps they simply want us to pay a "tax" for the privilege of adding this legendary character to our collections early. How generous !

To make things even more interesting (read: frustrating), Lion El'Jonson's rules will be found in an upcoming campaign supplement, which means that they'll only be valid for about four months until the next Warhammer 40,000 edition rolls around.

In conclusion, the rules reveal for Lion El'Jonson is a mixed bag. Sure, he's a formidable melee combatant, but the decision to package him with three generic Bladeguard models and to include his rules in a short-lived campaign supplement is certainly eyebrow-raising.

So if in the window of legality you have a competitive event just go all in ^^if not better wait for the 10th ^^
