Just some quirky and or unexpected rules in the new 'dex that folks might not be getting from the rumor mills (or for that matter, once they actually read the book):
Sergeants in line squads can no longer take lasguns. (So those of us with extensive metal armies have more to buy).
Regular Commissars have Bolt Pistols, but can't take Laspistols (Be prepared to do some minor conversions)
Veteran squads are limited to a single heavy flamer, but it is in the special weapons list, so you can take a Heavy Flamer / Lascannon combo (not that you would) (Oh, and they cost the same)
Veteran Squads can't infiltrate, but they can get stealth...
The Hull Mount on Leman Russes are Heavy Bolter or Lascannon only. Sorry, no rumored triple-plasma Russes. The Ra-Pattern Russ is an Executioner with plasma sponsons and a lascannon for 245 points.
A special weapons squad is six men, but only half the squad can actually take special weapons. *Boggles*
RecklessFable's Journey to Mediocrity (Painting an IG army)
I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
overall for infantry squads; i am agreeable with their new points costs.
but yea, i saw that sgt thing and got a bit bummed out as that's how all my sgts in infantry squads are equipped, so there is a bit of work to be redone... most likely being all new sgts, as i don't think i could bear to post-op tear their arms off.
though luckily i don't fall in that metal army category, vostroyans came around too late for me to collect as my ig.
Looks like I'll just convert the lasguns into shotguns...or something, I'll have to see the options when the new dex finally arrives.
1st Enders Mechanized Division
Enlist Today, Ave Imperator, Ave Endra
Finally getting round to finshing my Tallarn Imperial Guard Army (2K)
Everything else has been sacrificed on the Altar of eBay...
So what are the options for Sgts?
Can Vets or Command squad Vet take ccws?
I have a few bizarre IG that I use as Necromunda gang, I was hoping to use them as Vets, or something in my new army.
Arch Overfiend & Grand Despot
I currently play:
Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
Come on CC sergeants doesn't even go with the fluff, tell me one BL book where all of the sergeants and officers have CC setups. Look at the Gaunt's Ghost's series, everyone either has a special/heavy weapon, is a commissar/non-guard or has a lasgun.
IG Best Gen 1st overall of 10 DE 4th overall of 6
Eldar 3rd Overall/Best General of 26--2nd Overall/Best General of 7--1st Overall/Best General of 11
And as an aside, Heavy Flamers are also an option for sponsons... I have no idea why they got left out of The Dude's summary.
Where can I find this summary by The Dude that I keep reading about? Never mind. I found it.
