Old DA Rumors, 2013

I don't usually do this, I'd suggest Faeit212 is the place to go to for 40K rumors but as this one is about the DA I thought I'd post it here
(link to the blog I got the pic from Dark Vengence) New DA rumors Hello boys and girls, I've rested and recovered from the insanity of GDUK, really enjoyed meeting lots of people. If I met you there, cheers. Down to business. Right now info I have is we will see DA in November, and we can play with them before Christmas. From the rules rumor dept I have a few bits, please bear in mind these are only rumors: HQ: Azrael Belial - not needed for deathwing Sammael - not needed for ravenwing Azmodai Ezekiel Barakiel - named Techmarine/master of the forge! Note: barakiel is known as Angel of Lightning in references Sabrael - guardian of the inner circle, gives bonus to inner circle unit Librarian Company Master TA option Interrogator chaplain Command squad ( option to take TA or bikes with Belial or Sammael respectively, and apothecary, standard bearer, 1 heavy weapon) Elite: Techmarine Chaplains (x3 can function independently like sanguinary priests in BA, or form a unit w special rules). Only characters if independent. Inner circle unit ( name is not known) tasked with hunting down one enemy unit, special rules for doing so. Can death wing assault, can assault on deep strike. But glass cannon, great in assault, but standard PA so will be easily shot up. Brother-interrogators - this unit wears chaplain style death masks, but are not chaplains, they are a specialist unit adept at near range combat, standard armament is dual bolt pistols and power maul. Can upgrade pistols. Veterans Dreadnought Scouts Troops: Terminators Tactical squad Ravenwing Bike squad not sure how it differs from ravenwing assault squad. FA: Ravenwing assault squad Ravenwing support squad Assault marines Ravenclaw air superiority fighter Hvy Predator Whirlwind w flakk options Land raider Devastator w flakk options Dreadnought Vindicator Rumor is there is something else for the heavy slot too, but no info specific to it. Fortifications: Siege cannon ( this is supposedly the Techmarine cannon described earlier) Battle bunker That's enough to chew on for now....might be a few more surprises...and this is still just RUMOR folks...names and all. Cheers

Ravenwing Sgt

I wasn't able to get to Games Day this year, so spent the day playing around with the bikes I pilliged from a mates bits box. I sprayed one up black, and got these 2 to this state. The Sgt is posed in an action stance, with bike slewing around so he can line up a shot with his plasma pistol. To get the pose I cut the leg off on one side, turning it to the angle I wanted and reattching it with green stuff. I then painted over it with Vallejo black. I painted the trim in bleached bone and on the bike, and dry brushed the exhaust and engine in boltgun metal, for the muffler I mixed ice blue with shining gold and then when dry dry brushed it with gold. The riders torso is held on with blu tac for transport mostly, and the hand holding the handle bars as well. The sword is a conversion I had done for a Khonre Lord that never got played and is now back in the bits box, it is a sowrd with a plasma pistol added on to it, reasoning behind this is the Sgt wants to keep as may hands as he can on the handle bars and still be able to fight, either at range or in hand to hand with just one weapon, so the Artifiers have worked out how to do this for him. I thought the pose was a good way to get something dymanic into my army, and trying to get one of those things to stay put doing an endo with the rider whipping round with a bolt pistol is not something I'm going to attempt this side of a Golden Daemon entery. The 2nd biker is just a basic bike and rider on a 40k cav base that I was using as an objective marker in a zombie game, I took the injuried zulu off the base and just stuck the bike on.

Felarch Upgraded

As some of saw, I recently bought some of Black Scorpions Pirate Girls range and painted them up to be the leaders of my Corsair Eldar Squads as well as the HQ choices as well.
The 2nd picture shows where I was up to last, I'd run out of splinter pistols and was looking for a sword for the twin flint lock girl.
Well after a game the other week where I found a bag of bits with lots of pistols in I found a splinter pistol and dug out an Elf sword as well that I was planning on using on a Marine Librarian at some point, I cut off the flint locks and added the eldar weapons and a simple and effective conversion is done.

Counts as Canis Wolfborn

My 5th Company is a little different than normal, like my 8th Assault Company I'm making this one from a different Codex, 8th are Black Blood Angels and the 5th are Black Space Wolves. My original plan was not to use any named characters but I had this buggy knocking round for a while and just thought "whay the hell am I going to do with this thing?" about the same time as I was reading the Space Wolf Codex and thought feck it I'll let myself use a couple of the named guys and one of them is Canis Wolfborn on his Thunderwolf. Of course this looks nothing like a Wolf and the character dosen't have Lightning Claws, but with Claws now being as powerful as a Power Sword, more or less, I gave him lots of swords to play with on the front of his buggy and if anybody says anything I'll remind them he's a counts as model. The other 2 I'm allowning myself to use are Ulrik The Slayer and Bjorn The Fell Handed, Ulrik is an old Chaplin, that has been embedded in the 5th for a very long time and Bjorn the Fell Handed is the Company Master that was in Command when they where lost for 3000 years, looking out for his Warriors after all this time.
So the first 2 photos are of the buggy as I said the third is partly where the idea came from, yes that is Clouds bike from Final Fantasy, I liked the idea of him having lots of swords for either hand, as Space Marines are supposed to be ambidexterous after all.

I'm waiting for Scibor to release this baby as I'll be using these as my counts as Thunderwolves, with the very original name of Thundercats as I'm not to sure if my converting skills would be up to modding loads of bikes into quads, I know for sure my budget isn't. For the background I'm saying that the 5th has their own elite branch of the Ravenwing and the Thundercats and the buggy are examples of lost tech that they found during their sojorn, the techmarine have taken them apart and sent the reversed engineered schematics back to Mars but nothing is forth coming about these designs being rolled out yet.

From a strictly business view it
would make very little sense for
forge world to make any possible
primarch models limited edition.
First of all if they release rules for
them, and secondly it is to be
assumed that, as with anything
related to the GW IP, one of the
other points in actually releasing
primarch models (if they're
actually going to do so, which we
sincerely hope) would be to stop
third party companies in selling
models that could substitute as
primarchs ,but are not in direct
conflict with the GW IP, by
offering a better and official
miniature. That and the potential
s**tload of money they would
make I guess XD
