Force Weapons in 5th Edition

Post by Justicar Dionitas on Fri Mar 07, 2008 2:28 pm

I've heard rumors that these are changing to insta-kill in 5th. Anyone else heard this or can confirm? If so this is going to stink. I think it'd be a little cheesy too as I could just slap on an adamantine mantle and not have to worry about that pesky librarian/psyker/Grandmaster/

That would suck EPIC.

My grand master would not be able to kill anything!

All enemies are better equipped, costs less points, are more numerous and have more funky rules.

We have our nemesis force weapon and our storm bolter, don't make it even worse gw!

They would definatly need to upgrade the DH codex to reflect those changes and there's no telling how long that will take. As it stands True grit is pretty useless. At least for space wolves. Since they gave CSM's bolter, bolt pistol and ccw.

??????????????????????

WTF?????

(sorry about the dirty words...)

Don't worry brothers, is just a matter of time before GW release the new Inquisition Codex (at least I hope so)

and they will improve our army, I'm sure... GW has a tendency to favor chaos over other armies, but the good guys always WIN!

According the the Warpcon that was in Ireland, JJ (Jervis Johnson) said the Space Wolves codex would be out next year. He also said the Space Wolves were his favorite army. Kinda made me feel pretty good as the Space Wolves were my first army.

Ok, I'm a bit confused and need a little clarification on insta-kill weapons. Are these special Codex-specific weapons or does it mean (include) any weapons that wound and have double (or greater) strength compared to the targets toughness? I'm assuming our Force Weapon is not considered insta-kill because its actually the follow-up Psychic attack that does the auto-kill.

Force weapons (To include NFW) will supposedly become Insta-kill as in greater than double your strength type insta-kill.

The insta kill wouldn't be so bad in all Daemon Prince didn't have 'eternal warriors' rule, what would be worse if in the new daemon codex all Greater Daemons get NO insta kill.

Beside them, only adamantium mantle and crimsom medal would be a problem.. oh right, I think Nids would too T_T

But they can buy the daemonic ability to be immune to insta-kill. Or are all monsterous creatures immune anyway?

Tyranids are all immune to insta kill if within synapse range, (yes all) ghazghkull is immune to instant kill.

And many more, not just adamantine mantles on puny marines.


I would love if the grand master nfw was a vortex weapon! Twisted Evil Razz lol!

Every enemy that is hit in cc is removed from play, no saves of any kind, their body is banished and their soul purged in the purity of the gk's combined prayers and the wrath of the emperor himself!

The enemy is toast!
