iv been punged into fantasy quite heavily over the past few weeks with what iv been painting etc.
so back to 40k and 6th edition firstly plenty of rumours knocking around the book is out in a few days and the cover is awesome which makes me want a copy lol
next the biggest most intruiging alteration is the allies rules heres what we know so far
Rules for Allies
Brothers in Arms:
Join each others unit with Independent Characters and cast physic powers as if they were friendly.
Cannot join each others’ units nor treat as friendly for psychic powers.
Roll at the begging of each turn if they are within 6″, if they roll a 1 they can’t do anything.
now the pic is just legible but what does it mean
brothers in arms means the armies count as 1 all USR are shared and characters can join all units
grudging alliance counts as 2 seperate armies
unholy if u ally these 2 u must roll for each allied unit on the roll of a 1 the unit does nothin that turn
so what does this mean for my armies
firstly dark eldar as its my army that i play more than any at the moment well ill ally with eldar this gives me access to guide and fortune not only that i can guide my ravagers etc etc its gunna be filth ill also look at what is cheaper blaster trueborn or firedragons ill also get some cheaper fodder troops for objectives like gaurdians
its going to be interesting i think the units ill take really are 1 farseer with council dire avangers in transport and fire dragons
i can see why the points level will go to 2k for base games as it will be hard to implement allies in smaller points scales
next army i will be updating is chaos marines and quite rightly our brothers in arms are chaos deamons we can also ally with IG orks necrons and tau
hmmm its a hard choice i think IG may be the best choice then i an theme my list and make it like the legions of old it also means i can take sum melta vets hydras manticore and all the lovely stuff from the HS section
so all in all lookking foreward 2 it!!! gunna be filth lol
