U/Matrindur on Reddit posted up a pic of the updated Aggressor datasheet that’s on the way. The main changes were to wargear and it looks like it was all for the better. Check out all the other new Space Marine rules leaks if you haven’t already.
Spicy Aggressors 9th Edition 40k Rules Datasheet Changes!
- Melee gauntlets from D3 damage to flat 2.
- Flamers got +4″ now to 12″ also note that it’s not 2D6 anymore. It looks like GW split the profile for each hand.
- Boltstorm gauntlet now split between both gauntlets as assault 3 instead of assault 6 (together).
What do these changes mean? Well, seeing that Salamanders have been wrecking the top tables at tournaments, the fact that flamer Aggressors have gotten a free +4″ means that we’ll probably see Sally lists take at least one squad. For players in general, anyone who brings these guys will always probably have a CP in their reserve to overwatch with them too.
Back in the day, you could charge outside of their threat bubble and still make it into combat. However now, if anyone wants to get into melee with them they’ll have to eat an unholy amount of autohits.
What do you think about these Aggressor buffs? Will every Space Marine list be running these guys soon?
