Shadowspear review !

Small thumb unnamed  5

Hello there !!

Yesterday we received the Shadowspear box by GW. Even if most of the contents/rules have been spoiled I'd like to make a small review of what is good or not inside.

General content

The box contents are :
-1 mini dex for Primaris
-1 mini dex for Chaos
-1 campaign book
-Bunch of models.

Let's start with the sons of Gulliman, the Vanguard Primaris!

Primaris Mini dex

-They included rules for non-codex compliant characters in Phobos armour.
-Phobos is a new keyword used
-Captain in Phobos armour: Ranged captain with sniping, prevent deep strike within 12, infiltrate, camo cloaks and 4++
-Librarian in Phobos armour: get the camo cloak, infiltrate, cast 2 deny 1
-Lieut in Phobos armour: deepstrike end of mov
-Infiltrator, new unit, infiltrate, prevent deepstrike within 12", 1 apo heal/rez each turn. Their main weapon is normal bolter + auto wound on 6 (meh)
-Suppressor Squad: deep strike end of mov, prevent overwatch if they destroy a model, standard autocannon.
-Eliminator squad: Sniper, infiltrate and camo cloaks, sniping rule, 3 types of ammo (+dmg, shoot without los, -damage +nb of shots)

That's it for the unit rules, nothing extraordinary but look fun.

Psychic Power
Most of these power works only on the models in Phobos armour (buff)
-Shrouding affected unit can only be shot if closest target.
-Gaze, target unit reroll failed ranged attack.
-Temporal Corridor: must do an advance with 3dice (keep best) as if in move phase. Once per turn.
-Hallucination: -1ld and -1 to rolls if fail an ld roll.
-Curse: Halve move and 1 MW, (can't use it on a flying unit)
-Mind raid, 1 MW + roll 3d6 to gain 1 CP (wow)

Traits
-After shooting you can advance
-Relocate 3 units before game start
-+1mv/advance/charge for
-minus 1 to hit warlord
-Give +1 to hit to one unit against a specific target unit.
-+1 dmg to ranged attack, reroll hit and wound (niceee) apply to relics.

That's it for the Primaris !!

Daemonkin mini dex

The big new rule here is the Daemonic Ritual: Chaos character can sac move to try summoning. Roll 3 dice and summon the result worth of battle power. Double and Triple are bad for you ;)

-Master of Possession : Normal psycher with a 5++ and a 12" bubble of warp peril. (cast 2 deny 1)
-Chaos SPace Mariens : no change
-Greater Posseded : New characters, can take unit of 2 that act alone, buff nearby deamon, melee beast !
-Obliterators: random weapons like before (assault 6 now), deep strike, 2+/5+ and 4 wounds.
-VenomCrawler: new Defiler like engine, 2d3 shot that start at str 8 ap2 D3 damage, decent melee with 4attacks (str8 ap3 d3). Still, with a 4+ws/bs it's kind of bad. good synergy with the Greater Posseded with that +1str bonus that applies on his ranged too!

Malefic Discipline
-Incursion: Summon daemon with 4d without peril.
-Sacrifice, deal dmg to friendly to regen hp. (works better with a daemon engine/warpsmith combo)
-Buff random aspect of spawn, obliterators.
-Possession: Self-buff in melee and create spawn if destroy inf characters.
-Cursed earth: 6" bubble of +1 to daemon save.
-Infernal power: reroll 1 for wound and hit for daemon within 6"

A lot of buff for an evil spell list!

Warlord Traits
-Know one extra spell.
-1 extra deny
-one reroll per game + extra CP on a 6 when casting a spell
-+6 range on smite
-Reroll1 on psychic spell
-+1str and reroll force weapon dmg.

Shadowspear Campaign book


Some fluffs , some narrative mission, 1 campaign branch tree.

Models

Model list :
Citadel Miniatures
35 single-pose plastic miniatures:

Vanguard Space Marines
- 1 Captain in Phobos armour
- 1 Librarian in Phobos armour
- 1 Lieutenant in Phobos armour
- 3 Suppressors
- 3 Eliminators
- 10 Infiltrators

Daemonkin Chaos Space Marines
- 1 Master of Possession
- 1 Venomcrawler equipped
- 2 Obliterators
- 2 Greater Possessed
- 10 Chaos Space Marines

Model Review

Quality is still GW and this is an incredible set of models, even if the price is getting up again. Obliterators are really really big now !!.
The venomcrawler is smaller than expected and he could share a box with something else (a new design again ?).
I really like the new Phobos stuff even if it's maybe a bit too much Infinity like for some people. I don't understand the outrage about the grave chute suppressor.

All models are mono pose and most of them share sprues.

note that: Librarian, master of possession and Phobos captain are on individual sprue for single release.


Conclusion


A new milestone again for the new 40k universe. The chaos is coming back with a 2019 fresh look and the Primaris range is getting thicker and announce the replacement of the Small marines (that are too small for me to even considerate now.)

Rule wise it seems kind of weak but we'll need complete rules available in future releases to judge!
Yea Venom crawler look bad for the price in points(130!) Maybe points will be updated in the full codex.

That's it for now! You can ask questions I'll try to answer. :D

/Cheers.

Warhammer 40,000: Shadowspear – Captain Acheran, First of the Vanguard

Tags : shadowspear vanguard primaris

Small thumb shadowspearhero mar1 feature0fd

Howdy Guys and Girls :)

"Vanguard Space Marines are elite reconnaissance troops, trained to operate without support across the deadliest frontiers of the galaxy. Clad in lightweight power armour and equipped with weapons perfectly optimised for covert warfare, Vanguard warriors fight as the tip of the Adeptus Astartes spear.

Ranging far ahead of their battle-brothers, they drop behind enemy lines, deep into hostile territory. Once in position, they launch a campaign of total devastation against the enemy. Every component of the opposing war machine is taken apart piece by piece – communications are severed, key commanders assassinated, supply caches demolished and morale drained away by unrelenting terror-strikes. When the enemy are all but beaten, the Vanguard Space Marines emerge from the shadows to deliver the killing strike."

"The Vanguard Space Marines of Strike Force Shadowspear hail from the Ultramarines 2nd Company and fought with distinguished honour alongside Roboute Guilliman himself at the forefront of the Indomitus Crusade. Captain Acheran – a cunning and decisive leader whose actions have earned him numerous battle honours – was handpicked by Marneus Calgar to lead the covert investigation of Nemendghast."


"A modest and taciturn commander, Captain Acheran has found the clandestine operations of the Vanguard Space Marines perfectly suited to his skills. Rather than rely on zealous oratory, Acheran prefers to let his actions and astonishing marksmanship do the talking. Even while the fiercest battles rage about him, Acheran remains a picture of serene calmness, delivering curt orders to his warriors while blasting enemy commanders from their feet with dead-eye shots from his master-crafted bolt carbine. It’s with good reason that the Marksman’s Honour hangs from the forestock of the Captain’s firearm."

Lady Atia

Hello there !!

News from Vigilus :

Marneus Calgar is the original and perhaps most iconic Space Marine character, having been with us in one form or another since the very first edition – so it’s only fitting that this venerable hero is the first to be reborn as a Primaris Space Marine. This incredible new model combines the modern aesthetic of the Primaris Marines with the classic elements of the venerable character.

Rules for Marneus Calgar – and more – can found in Vigilus Defiant, a new campaign book that puts you at the heart of the latest epic conflict:

December.

i prefer to make separate thread to ease of reading.

Wake the Dead: New Models

Tags : primaris eldar warhammer 40 000

Small thumb wakethedead sept26 spiritseersprue 5hr

Hello there,

Some new info on the Spiritseer and Primaris Lieut from wake the dead.




The Spiritseer from Wake the Dead was designed to upgrade the classic resin Spiritseer using cutting-edge technology as well as new design elements to properly reflect their rank and role in the Aeldari army.

As well as featuring crisper, sharper and finer detail across the model, this new miniature features elements such as hanging cloths as well as a long overcoat over their robes. Spiritseers are, after all, powerful individuals, closer in significance to Farseers than Warlocks – these design elements help tie the model to other high-ranking Aeldari, like the plastic Farseer as well as Eldrad Ulthran.








A short dagger, meanwhile, is a small touch designed to help demonstrate the Spiritseer’s relationship to the soldiers they’re most often found commanding – wraith constructs. Designed as a primarily ceremonial weapon, this piece of wargear is a simple touch that ties the Spiritseer to Wraithguard, Wraithblades, Wraithlords and Wraithknights.


Finally, the new Spiritseer is made of plastic, and features an interchangeable head, meaning if you’re looking to customise yours (or just make a simple head-swap to resemble a favourite character), you’ll find it easy:







Primaris Lieutenants are the perfect opportunity to express the individual character of your Primaris Space Marines army. Are they a grizzled pack of veterans of decades of war, led by a battle hardened master of war like Haldor Icepelt? Have they adopted the culture of their Chapter and taken up new arms and armour, like Tolmeron and Zakariah? The Primaris Lieutenant in Wake the Dead is designed to represent the storied tactical masterminds who serve with the likes of the Ultramarines, Imperial Fists and other Chapters who have turned war into an art.





This miniature is packed with design motifs and ornamentation that hearken back to the history of the Space Marines, from the classic laurels on his helm to the beads wrapped around his sword. If you’re a veteran Space Marines collector, this model is a fantastic way to bring together your older models with your new, Primaris Space Marines.





Those who collect purely Primaris Space Marine armies, meanwhile, will find the extra detail on this model really helps it stand out, adding an extra level of individuality and character to your collection. Blank shoulder pads, meanwhile, allow you to tie this model to any Chapter of your choosing – Iron Hands, Black Templars or any one of the thousand Chapters spread across the Imperium.




/Cheers.
Bob.
