Small thumb vigulus dec5 feature 320x320

Hello again !!

New reveal by GW

-Cost 1 CP
-Add keyword to certain compatible units
-Grant new stratagem, relic, Warlord Trait.

ex :

So pay 1 cp and gain Anointed Throng on Abominants and Aberrants

-Grant a very good warlord trait : +1 charge roll to him and Anointed Throng units within 6" (ambush charge on a 8 !)
-One relic : Beffy sledgehammer with -4ap, no malus to hit, and min dmg of 3 (on 1d6)
-2 stratagems :

and

One other gratting reroll 1 on wound roll for Aberrant in a certain range. Nothing incredible but when you are wielding a sledgehammer it's good to reroll those pesky fumble !!

On specialist Detachement is nothing more nothing less.
Not too heavy on the extra rules and nothing Crazy.
I am not sure but i do hope we can get some Stratagem cards for these.

Rest of the spoiler go there :

Hello there !!

GW revealed more info on the next campaign book :

Missions
With Vigilus Defiant, you’ll be able to play through your own War of Beasts, a sprawling 3-phase narrative campaign designed to accommodate 4-16 players. 12 missions bring the conflict to life and offer new challenges that, while specific to the battles on Vigilus, could quite easily be modified to showcase your own narratives. You’ll be able to keep your gaming group or club busy for many weeks.

Specialist Detachments

Every Specialist Detachment is fun, thematic and designed to be usable in any kind of play – all you’ll need to use them is to spend a few Command Points. Don’t worry if your faction doesn’t have any Specialist Detachments in Vigilus Defiant – we dare say we’ll be seeing more of them in future…

-Heavily emphasis on tactics definig stratagem (some very strong move tricks !!!)
-No chaos Detachments

Ps : The spear is a ranged weapon only !
