People are starting to get the new Gathering Storm III, and we’re starting to see the rules for the new models. Let’s take a look at the Fallen!
The Triumvirate of the Primarch has been one of the most anticipated releases so far. BoLS just posted some of the new rule for the Fallen, let’s see what they had to say.
Fallen Angels Levels of Alliance
The combination of Armies of the Imperium and Chaos Marines as battle brothers will open up some entirely new meta shifting possibilities.
We already seen this in the previous post about Cypher, but a quick refresher never hurts.
Rise of the Primarch isn’t all rules, and you get lots of great looking color plates on how to put together your Fallen Angels. I love the combination of the original Rogue Trader black legion color with a mix and match of Dark Angel and heresy-era armor components. If you got yourself some Dark Angel tactical squads and some plastic heresy-era MkIII-IV marines it would be about perfect.
The book contains Cypher, the “Fallen Champions” Formation starring Cypher and a handful of these units, and an updated Fallen unit seen above. These guys have a metric ton of unit and upgrade options. The unit feels like it has more in common with CSM Chosen than Dark Angel Veterans for example, and I would expect them to hit the tabletop armed to the teeth (way more than the guys in the picture).
Cypher remains very much the man of mystery and charging him is possibly the dumbest idea in the galaxy with his BS:10 overwatch pistol fire (twice)! As for that oversized sword on it’s back – it’s mere sight provokes an intriguing response by Guilliman.
The Fallen is going to be a really interesting army to see on the tabletop with these new rules. How are you going to use them? If you’re not, how are you going to deal with Cypher when you come up against him? Let us know what you think!
There is sure to be more information put out on the new Gathering Storm III over the next week leading up to the release. Stay tuned for the latest updates, we’ll be putting them out all week as soon as we get them.
Pro Tip: Stay Stealth!
Cadia, the long-standing symbol of Imperial defiance against the relentlessly encroaching tides of Chaos, has fallen to the fury of Abaddon’s Thirteenth Black Crusade. Craftworld Biel-Tan has been shattered, along with the dreams of their restoration to prominence. Chaos is ascending – all across the galaxy, raging Warp storms cause havoc as reality itself twists in agony.
Hope, however, remains. An alliance of Ynnari and Celestinian forces has found common ground in their desire to ward off Chaos. These heroes of the Imperium and warriors of the Aeldari race through the webway to Macragge, there to attempt the unthinkable – awaken Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines, and seek his leadership in this desperate battle for nothing less than survival. The Storm Gathers…
Rise of the Primarch is the third book in the Gathering Storm series. This 136-page hardback introduces the Triumvirate of the Primarch – a trio of heroes including Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines – and draws the threads of the thrilling story of the Gathering Storm together in dramatic fashion. Heroes new and old rise in defense of the Imperium, and the universe of Warhammer 40,000 will be changed forever.
As is appropriate for such an apocalyptic tome, Rise of the Primarch is packed full of rules content for Warhammer 40,000:
– Datasheets for the Triumvirate of the Primarch – field Cypher, Grand Master Voldus of the Grey Knights and Roboute Guilliman in games of Warhammer 40,000;
– Warlord Traits and Relics for Ultramarines forces;
– Formations allowing you to field The Fallen, the Grey Knights’ Bulwark of Purity, the Victrix Guard of the Ultramarines and the Triumvirate of the Imperium;
– Daemonic Adversaries – these special rules allow you to field Grey Knights against enemies that are not necessarily Daemonic in nature, meaning your Grey Knights can be fielding without breaking narrative;
– 5 Echoes of War missions, detailing key battles from Rise of the Primarch;
– 3 Cataclysm of War missions – these represent desperate battles fought during the Gathering Storm.
– In Pursuit of the Fallen – special objectives to be used when fielding Cypher, units of the Fallen, and models of the Dark Angels faction.
The first in our series on the new Triumvirate of the Primarch – we start with the big guy himself: Roboute Guilliman. https://goo.gl/DOK8r4
