Welcome to Librarium Online!
who are the new 40k guys with the fur hats vostrayns i think they are called obviously i.g. but any backround special rules...? all i could find is a few pics on the previews page just wondering if anyon has any idea about them.
I don't think anyone knows about any specific rules for the Vostryans yet but I think as ShadowZora said, in the next White Dwarf there might be some info.
From what I read, it's something like "their elite status can be represented by adapted doctrines fom the IG codex". Quote is either from the US WD or from GW's website announcement.
Last night I was boredly browsing Wikipedia Warhammer articles for obscure bits of fluff I didn't know and I came across this on the Adeptus Mechanicus page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adeptus_Mechanicus
"Skitarii are represented in the game by using Imperial Guard regiment rules with a focus on Doctrines and equipment that would be appropriate to a cybernetic army, and are often referred to as "Tech-Guard" in the fiction. In the upcoming Global Campaign Medusa V, Vostroyon Skitarii regiments feature heavily."
So are Vostroyons not actually in the Imperial Guard, but the AM? Forgive me if this is already well-known, I can't get publications like White Dwarf.
Anyone can post in wikipedia. They are just a regular regiment like tallarn or steel legion etc...
Do you have a reference to back that up with?
I'm not trying to be difficult, I'm just not able to get White Dwarf so I don't know what's been officially stated and what's rumor?
I think it is highly likely that vostrians will be entirely codex compliant, just the use of doctrines will be focussed, they may use more than 5 as is feasible with Cadians, but usual wait and see
Everything you have been told is a lie!
The adeptus mechanicus thing is right actually, somewhere on one of the preview pictures it says that after the horus heresy, the Vostroyons swore allegiance to the adeptus mechanicus.
which probably just means they'll have carapace armour, sharpshooters, cyber enhancement and some other stuff.
i was hoping for some new doctrines, still it might happen. actual rules n background are in Uk WD 317 which isn't out yet.
Age is right, they are sworn to the AM, though I don't think they are actual skitarii.
