Welcome to Librarium Online!
i am only relaying the info (from bell of lost souls),http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/c...angron-001.jpgOn this Sunday we have word that the upcoming White Dwarf contains quite a gem. A new article titled Liber Apocalypta makes it appearance and give us background of the Armageddon wars and the following 3 Apocalypse datasheets:
- Angron, Deamon-Primarch of the World Eaters; Angron and up to a dozen Bloodthirsters ~Chew on that Grey Knights!
- Ork Submersible
- Blood Angel Thunderhawk Assault Force; 3 Thunderhawks, Dante and a large entourage of marines ~Giving the Tau Manta Strike Force a run for its money is the $$$ department.
Liber Apocalypta is said to be an ongoing column, so perhaps this is the first example of Rick Priestly's recent comments regarding the Design Studio taking more control of White Dwarf. I hope so.
~I for one am taken aback that after 20 years we finally have real solid GW rules for a Primarch on the tabletop. I guess if any of them are justified its the Daemon-Primarchs as they really can't be "killed" in the standard sense. At least now we have a baseline of what they looklike stat and ability-wise.
I AM BOOMER!
Khorne be praised! The Primarch returns to the field of battle!
I'll have to dust off my World Eaters for Apocalypse. There are skulls to reap beneath the banner of the World Eaters.
I wonder if the model (if one gets made) will be at all faithful to his Epic incarnation of many years ago...

Sorry fellow Khorne warriors, but Angrons rules and stats are very very VERY poor for a Primarch who is also a Daemon now.
You know he's about 2 steps up from a normal DP, and in many ways comparible(and even better) than a bloodthirster....but its true...for what he's supposed to be, he's kinda wimpy. That said it was kinda expected.
Problem with putting things like primarchs in the game is you either have to utterly break them, or water them down. Really though I was hoping they could just put him on the same level as Angrath...I mean really he's meant to be apocalypse only anyway.

I believe there is a similar thread running in the Chaos Space Marine forums.
And yes, we're all rather disappointed by the stat line.
Though hopefully this will start a wave of new rules for all the remaining Primarchs. Meaning we could see the return of Leman Russ!
One argument that I made at the local store when we were looking at this is that perhaps this is Angron's lesser form. It takes a lot of energy for a Demon to manifest itself outside the Warp, yeah? Perhaps this is "not a lot of energy" Angron. If it's well received (or highly criticized), they'll make a stronger, 1000 point version.
This is the first Primarch we've had rules for in a loooong time (20 years, yeah? I know Russ used to have rules and even a model, but that was back in the Rogue Trader days). It might take a couple tries to get it right.

Blood for the Blood God! Beer for the Bronze Keg!
They would have done mouch worse than to use the Chaos Primarchs rules from the B&C website..
You mean like this,
taken from the B&C forums, posted by,Interregatorchaplain
still new here, no clue how to use functions
anyway here is daemon primarch Lorgar
WS BS S T W I A LD SV
7, 5, 6, 5, 7 , 5 , 4 ,10 , 2+
4+ invulnerable save
Fury of chaos:
Lorgar has the power of the gods on his side, he causes a -2 morale modifier to any enemy unit within 12"
On his trusted homeworld he has one hundred psykers focused on his light, should he be reduced to one wound he must leave the battle, counted as a casualty for Victory points purposes
Scythe of fury:
Gifted to Lorgar by Nurgle himself, Lorgar carries a scythe that wounds on a 3+, counted as a force weapon
Tendrils of fear:
Any enemy within two inches of Lorgar must take a Morale test with no modifiers. Should it fail it stands transfixed until lorgar leaves the area
So, hows that for a slice of fried gold eh?
If these rules were published by G.W then everyone would be in an uproar!
