Roboute is really insane, and I can't wait to see what Voldus will add to the Grey Knights...

I too am curious what Voldus will bring, he'll either be a combat beast or a psychic powerhouse... Or both?

Phew... Been a month of waiting but its finally here!

The details of Grand Master Voldus are out and his abilities are pretty straight forward actually. He's a combination of a librarian and a grand master; He's 5 points less than Draigo, having grand master stats and equipment but being mastery 3 and having the lore master warlord trait, giving him 4 powers to pick from. Another nifty gimmick is his master-crafted nemesis daemon hammer doesn't have unwieldy, so he'd be swinging 4-5 str 8 ap 2 attacks at In 5!

In addition he can take powers from the Angels of Death supplement.

It would seem that we also gain a new formation called the Bulwark of Purity.

In it the formation consists of 1 grey knight librarian. 3 squads of Grey knight paladins and 3 squads of Grey Knight terminators. So long as there are 3+ squads alive on the board EVERYONE gains +1 to deny the witch and if banishment is cast by a unit in the formation then any demonic opponent 12" of any unit in the formation is also effected.

Essentially turning Banishment into a 12' nova cast by the entire formation itself!

Against demons this is vicious, but against everyone else its pretty OK. The +1 deny the witch is pretty useful against heavy psycker armies. Having a Librarian at mastery 3, warding staff and using his psychic hood he'd be providing deny at 2+ in a 12" bubble around him.

Well brothers, our prayers have been answered. There is a set of rules in Gathering Storm 3 called Daemonic Adversaries in which (with permission from your opponent) your enemy's forces become corrupted by daemons. Any army can be upgraded with these rules except for Tyranids, Genestealer cults, Necrons and Tau.

The warlord of said army gains the Daemon special rule in addition to fleshbane, armourbane, smash, psychic mastery 1 (mastery 2 for 25 pts) and a 3+ invulnerable save! In addition they may also upgrade any other independent character psykers in their army with the daemon special rule... FOR FREE! ALL FOR FREE!!!

All characters upgraded in this way can only take the Daemonology (Malefic) powers from the psychic powers list and can now take chaos daemons as allies in their army at their normal cost.

Lastly the now daemonic opponent may roll from their own unique warpstorm chart on a roll of 2d6. A third of the results increase their warp charges, the other third creates table wide havoc on non-engaged models (d6 hits at str 4/6/8 ap 3) and the last third is daemonic hijinks like summoning a swarm of demons for free, or worse case scenario MASS POSSESSION! All non-vehicle units gain the daemon, fearless and furious charge special rules.

All of this may seem horrifying... To anyone else Smile But what it means for US is that now we have the option of gaining ALL of our benefits against any willing player. We can play at our maximum potential.

Ah, back to the good old Deamonhunters codex rules.

But even crazier.

It should be interesting, on the one hand your opponent gets a daemonic/psyker upgrade for his characters and potentially free daemonic forces per turn. And what we get is to finally exploit our sanctic powers, preferred enemy (daemons) and Daemonbane special rules.

It balances out really... Unless you've got a few squads of daemons lying around to be played.

I thought this release may help to wake our sleepy little forum a little Smile
A pretty cool set of minis, and some substantial love for the GK.

Amazing. EVERYWHERE else, even the GK section at BnC craps on these so called GK news in the blueberry codex.

We get a worthless formation no one will ever in a thousand years see being used other then outside extremely friendly fluff games and a special character that is blatantly 50 points overcosted.


And in here people praise this as wonderful news. I dont get it, my gks still get auto tabled when facing SM, tau or gaydar, still cant deal with things like gargantual creatures or grav and are still having the games single most useless "main" formation.

Oh well, must be something in the water in here I guess.




So, instead of telling me how very wrong all the other 40k boards are do instead answer me a question about cataphractii terminators that has me slightly puzzled.

Cataphractii dont get relentless and thus cant move and fire heavy weapons like "normal" terminators".

So how come they get cyclone missiles in 30k?
Are cataphractii rules different in 30k from 40k?

I agree with Pyriel : formations are useless, but I was not expecting something else.

The real disapointment, IMO, comes from Voldius. Yes, I5 thunderhammer is pretty cool, but 240 pts for a T4 3W no eternal warrior character ? Just a single S8 hit and you have 50% chances of him to be removed.

I'm not too upset about Voldus, if anything the only characters to have eternal warrior should be the epic lords of war types like Draigo. Used properly Voldus should be a pretty mean beat stick.
