Warhammer 40,000 Faction Focus: Death Guard
Hello everyone !!
Death guard faction focus !
Death Guard in the current edition play to their background relatively well thanks to their high Toughness
and having the Feel No Pain universal special rule which is now called Disgustingly Resilient,.
Plague Marines being able to wound fleshy targets more easily with their poisoned blades
high points cost in what we will soon be calling matched play, they aren’t actually seen on the tabletops in very high numbers.
Plague Marines are still Toughness 5
Their plague knives now allow you to re-roll wound rolls of 1 in close combat
the blight launcher – an Assault 2, Strength 6, AP -2 weapon that deals D3 damage at 24″ range
Poxwalkers, the other Troops choice for the Death Guard. Coming in at 6 points
Poxwalkers have Disgustingly Resilient
This unit also never has to take morale tests
Curse of the Walking Pox, allowing you to add another Poxwalker to the unit every time they slay any enemy Infantry models.
lso, if you’ve got Typhus on the table, he increases the Strength and Toughness of nearby Poxwalkers by 1 with his special ability, bolstering their already formidable durability!
The Death Guard also get Miasma of Pestilence – a psychic power which you cast onto one of your own units so that, until your next turn, your opponent must subtract 1 from all hit rolls that target that unit.
Sounds very good !

Extra pics of assault marines
hello again !!
The guy from stayfrostystudio revealed assembling of the assault marines.
Considering he waited to gw to reveal them i guess he had a call from Inquisition Lawyer ;)
On the forgeworld side !
hello again again again !!
On the forge world side :
Much like Citadel Miniatures, rules for the extensive Warhammer 40,000 Forge World range will be made available in a series of Index books
The first two of these will be available alongside the new edition of Warhammer 40,000, available to pre-order on the 3rd of June
These first two books will cover the forces of the Adeptus Astartes and their traitorous kin.
additional Index books that set to be released before the end of June.(for all the rest)
Every single Warhammer 40,000 miniature that Forge World make today will be covered, as well as a few classic ones.
Also included are rules for a few characters who do not yet have a model, such as some heroes and villains of the Badab Wars.
On top of that, several units will be made available to factions that never previously had access to them, and on Wednesday this week, we’ll be taking a look at one of them when we see our first Forge World datasheet for the new edition.
For you Horus Heresy fans out there, Forge World will be announcing the future of that game system at Warhammer Fest this weekend. We’ll bring you the news from the event as it breaks, right here on the Warhammer Community site.
So Atia Happy ? :D
Hello again again !

Plague Marines side
Hello again everyone !!
While the marines look very cool in their new shiny armors (and genes) but in my heart (or belly) the nurgle side is CRAZY GOOD !!
7 plagues marines
1 Foetid Bloat-drone
20 Poxwalkers (oops)
1 Lord of Contagion
1 Noxious Blightbringer
1 Malignant Plaguecaster
All these model are stunning, the amount of details and personnification is unprecedented !!
Only cons is that the BlightBringer look a lot like his AOS counterpart.
The poxywalkers are the big winners for me it make me want to paint them right now! !!!
Space marines side
hello again :
Space marines side is composed of
1x5 Hellblaster with plasma weapon
1x3 Inceptor squad (jump pack)
1 Primaris with ps
1 Primaris lt with "Auto Bolt rifle"
1 Primaris lt Ancient
1 Captain in Gravis Armour
The new terminator armor look very cool, with Power fist and bolter mixed together.
The primaris ancient is just a name ? or it's an old marines upgraded ?
Warhammer 40,000 Launch Date Announced (17th of June)
Hello everyone !!
GW announced the release date it's 17 june ;)
June 3rd – mark your calendars folks, because that’s the day you’ll be able to pre-order your copy of the new edition of Warhammer 40,000. (15 days pre order)
we think that the models alone make this the best Warhammer 40,000 box set ever made.
you get two armies of brand new miniatures,
the full hardback Warhammer 40,000 book
dice and range rulers
A complete set of datasheets to field both these Death Guard
Primaris Space Marines
You’ll also find a host of new background information on the two forces and on the Plague Wars being fought in Ultramar.
This 280-page, hardback tome is included in the Dark Imperium box and is also available separately.
contains an extensive exploration of the Warhammer 40,000 setting
This includes some pretty major advancements in the story for every faction in the galaxy
arrival of the Great Rift, the rise of Chaos, and the launching of the Indomitus Crusade.
Alongside the core rules for the game, there are missions, full guidelines for the 3 ways to play (open, narrative and matched)
advanced rules to represent the myriad war zones of the far future, including all the rules you need to play games of Cities of Death, Planetstrike, Stronghold Assault and Death from the Skies.
the core rules for Warhammer 40,000 will be available for free! You’ll be able to download the Battle Primer PDF on games-workshop.com and warhammer40000.com from June 17th.
these five softback Index books provide rules for every single Warhammer 40,000 Citadel Miniature we sell
They are broken down into themed books:
2 for the Imperium, 1 for the forces of Chaos, and 2 for the xenos races of the galaxy.
To start gaming with your existing army, you just need the box set or the Warhammer 40,000 book and whichever Index book has their datasheets and you’re good to go.
Oh, and don’t worry, this doesn’t mean Orks and Tyranids are now on the same side, it just means they share a book for the moment. In the future, they’ll get their own dedicated codexes.
These include new Tactical Objective cards
most thematic set of Warhammer 40,000 objective markers we’ve ever made, including a mini-supply drop pod and a xenos bio-containment tank.
a flexible Combat Gauge WOAAAAA
Lastly a novel
Warhammer 40,000: Cities of Death
Hello everyone !!
GW trying to keep up the hype !!
Urban Combat !
These rules, like the Stronghold Assault rules we’ve seen already, are an optional add-on to theme your battles and add more variety to your games
Ruins : Their impact takes the form of bonuses for units with certain keywords, and limitations for others.
Infantry: They are also the only units that benefit from cover naturally, just for being in a ruin.
Cover in ruins : Other units (monsters, vehicles etc…) will need to actually be obscured to gain any bonus.
In Cities of Death games, these bonuses get even better – if a unit does not move, its cover bonus from being in a ruin is increased from a +1 to their Armour Save to +2
flying units will do very well in Cities of Death games, as they are able to leap from rooftop to rooftop easily.
Any Grenade thrown at a unit in ruins will always count as having rolled the maximum number of shots (6, in the case of a frag grenade) and can reroll to wound thanks to the “Fire in the Hole” mission rule.
One war zone where the narrative certainly calls for Cities of Death battles is Ultramar
we already saw the forces of the Traitor Legions launch their attack on the Ultramarines utopian* worlds.
Some interesting stuff with the terrain rules. It's easy to imagine that different type of terrain will interact differently with certain keywords.
Ps: The image is that a new terminator armor or it's the position ? (the blood angel )
