Games Workshop just released a little teaser for Cadia detachments and formations, let’s have a look.
We’ve heard a little bit about this fearsome trio already in our video spotlights on Belisarius Cawl, Inquisitor Greyfax and Celestine. There is also the option to feature all three in your Imperial army (and if you have all three, why not!). While powerful fighters all, these heroes’ best utility perhaps comes in their ability to bolster the rest of your forces to commit super-human acts of valour and bravery.
We’ve seen these three showcased throughout the week, and now we can assume why. They are strong models by themselves, now it looks like they’re going to feed off each other, and strenghten your army at the same time in this new formation. If we didn’t have incentive to buy all three already, maybe this is a step in that direction.
The Conclave Acquisitorius is the army of Belisarius Cawl, here in a Formation that represents the force at the time of the 13th Black Crusade. As befits a Tech-Priest of his standing, characters in this force have equipment that is a marvel to even other scions of Mars, and each carries a master-crafted weapon of some sort.
More powerful though, is that the Formation – composed of Skitarii, Imperial Knights and Cult Mechanicus, with Belisarius leading the way – has access to a mix of abilities from all of those armies – this is the power of the Adeptus Mechanicus at their optimised best.
Can you say raw power? The Adeptus Mechanicus has always been a force to be reckoned with. Now they’re getting a, formation that looks to be a small army composed of Skitarii, Imperial Knights, and Cult Mechanicus led by Belisarius himself. Every unit in the army is carrying a master-crafted weapon with access to a mix of abilities from all armies in the formation.
Crusade for Cadia!
For those of you who prefer faith over the forge, there is the Wrathful Crusade – Celestine and Inquisitor Greyfax at the head of a combined Black Templar and Astra Militarum force – the army that faced the spearhead of the traitor attack on Cadia.
Joining hands in this formation is the Black Templar and Astra Militarum. Saint Celestine and Inquisitor Greyfax led this force in the fight against the Traitor Legion attack on Cadia, and you’ll soon be able to get a formation bonus while you follow the story line.
I think it’s safe to say that the Sisters are here to stay this time.
