The following leaks on Spikey Bits...
Someone got their book early and is spilling the beans. Checkout the latest compilation of new Blood Angels rules confirmations by Iuchiban on Warseer!
First the big stuff;
Death Company is now elite as DC dreadnought
Predator Baal is Heavy Support
Librarian Dreadnought is HQ
Mephiston is HQ and IC
All units have now Furious Charge
Only troop choices are Tactical squads and scouts.
No new units. No Centurions and no talons.
Dante’s Axe is +2S, AP2, mastercraft and NOT unwieldy, and he’s Eternal Warrior
No terminator armour for DC. But there are good news, Jump packs are now only +3 points. On the other hand their WS has been downgraded to 4.
No squadrons for Dreads. “Standard” dreads are now Elite, Furiosos and DC dreads too. Librarian dreads are HQ.
Tactials As usual + new options. They can get anti-air missiles BTW. And no more Land Raider as dedicated transports for everybody, just for termies.
Vanguard Veterans cannot charge after Deep Strike
Special rules for Death Company: FC, Fearless, Relentless, FnP, Rage. They cannot reroll to wound if chaplain in the unit. Only Astorath gives them this ability.
Sanguinor pretty the same but: gets only 4++, re-rolls to hit and wound in challenges
Sanguinary Priests costs about the same as a Wyvern, are HQ, and units they joins get +1WS and FnP. The are IC btw.
1. Warlod gets Rampage
2. Warlord gets +1 I
3. One warlord’s weapon gets mastercrafted
4. Warlord gets Adamantium will
5. Warlord gets Descent of the Angles (Dante’s trait)
6. 12″ fearless bubble
Physic powers are:
Primaris: Blessing. +D3 to A and I to psyker or target character at 12″
1. Malediction. Target unit at 12″ takes a Moral test with -2
2. Blessing. Target unit at 18″ gets Rage. If they had already that rule, they get +1A instead
3. Blessing. Psyker and his unit get 5++
4. Focussed witch fire. Target makes 2 T tests. Take one W for each failed test. If targed dies, place 5″ blast with S4 and AP5.
5. Beam.12″ S8, AP1 Lance
6″Blessing. Targe infantry unit, moves 12″ in the psychic phase. No charging after this movement.
Fast vehicles are:
Rhinos, Razorbacks and Baal Predators
Mandatory 1 HQ, 1 Elite, 2 Troops
Optional: as usual, but 3 additioanl Elite (Total 4)
Special rule: +1I when charging, all the army, any turn.
I see in the pictures of the codex there is nothing coming after the termie kit. Librarian is separate from the kit.
