Leaked Pics First Thoughts & Rumored Rules
Thoughts on new space marine leaked pics and some thoughts. Well what alot people been waiting for new Space Marines for 2013 and here we go with a first round of leaked pictures. So far from what ive seen looks like a desperate attempt to make some new type of heavy infantry, no no hear me out "A Space Marine, INSIDE of a Space Marine".
Centurion: Devastator Squad
New Gravity Weapons for the Centurions rumored to be 24inch range and AP 2.
- Can upgrade to omniscope which gives night fight and split fire special rules.
- Heavy support are the devastator option. They come with twin-linked Heavy bolters and Hurricane bolters. Hurricane can be upgraded to missile and HB upgraded to Twin- Las cannon or Grav-cannon and grav-amp.
- Move through cover, Slow and Purposeful, Decimator Protocols(Can fire up to two weapons in each shooting phase), Very Bulky, Chapter Tactics, and ATSKNF.
What is the point?
Well there isnt one really other then to have new models. I do like the Shoulder pads its almost like a forgeworld pre heresy kind of splice. Now all the other weapon upgrades could of simply been for Terminators and then let people in the codex choose those upgrades.
So what do we see here?
We see some shitty twin linked heavy bolters that nobody ever uses in their lists and probably a 25 to 35 point twin linked lascannon on the top guy that nobody will pay the points for :-) lol fail sauce. Im prity sure most of us could agree we would of liked twin linked assault cannons instead. Hurricane Chest bolters will prob cost fair upgrade in points and wont kill anything.
Well if these new models get FAQ'd into the Dark Angels Codex you could see some nasty Quad Shots with their special Salvo 4 stationary rule for the hurricane bolter. I am curious though about the gravity weapons will they be worth it or will we just continue with plasma?
How are they visually?
They dont look to bad visually its like a rehash of pre heresy terminators however the hurricane chest bolters are a bit much, thats some power rangers shit right there. I do like the shoulder pads and the legs, and the helmet seems fairly proportionate.
