Joining the lists of what to expect for Warhammer 40k, we have the latest on Space Marine Tactical Squads.  More specifically, this rumor bit gets down to what we will see in the box when it is released.


To confirm this, I have also heard that in whispers a while back that all options found in the codex entries would be represented. So this is a rumor I have had information to correlate with.

Please remember that these are still rumors, and we do not know when we will see this release.

What I understand is the tactical box is 3 sprues 10 marines. All options represented for a full tactical squad. So heavy weapons and special weapons represented. Sgt options represented, with the exception the combiweapon is multipart, you can only build 1. No word on sternguard options like special bolters and the like. Hands are molded with the weapons, but not arms, however some weapon/arm combos must go together. No chapter specific icons present.

    1. They Even have hell-Boy :D

      So much for Copyright -.^

    2. I don't think it has one large hand. And Hell Boy is probably one of the more derivative comics characters...he's a big red devil, the only unique thing is his unusually large right hand..well and the fact that he cuts his horns off.

      The sixpack is so unrealistc and Bad sculpted

    4. Oh totally wasn't denying the comics look, and definitely don't like the model at all, but I don't think it comes close to "ripping off" anyone, which is what the so much for copyright comment implies.

  3. It sure will be tempting to start a 10-squad battle company when all the new SM kits come out.

    1. I've already started a Salamanders Battle Company but after all these nice SM rumors I'm holding off buying any more until these are released!

  4. Does that Box have anything New?
    Sound like Same Old to me
    I doubt we will have more than now in it.

    1. options for full tactical squad... so all heavy weapons, special weapons and sergeant options...

      yeah sounds like the same old to me too...

      Delete
    2. I'm questioning whether GW would put ALL the weapon options in, every heavy weapon would mean they wouldn't sell any more Devastator boxes. I mean, a couple of Tac boxes and you have enough heavy weapons for a full Dev squad armed with any heavy weapons you want. Sounds too good to be true.

      Delete
  5. The old is missing 1 or 2 combi bolter options and no stormbolter. The thing is, we don't know how the tactical squad is gonna change. Maybe the Dark Angels have 2 plasma options.

    1. Well would be nice if so.
      But for me Not reason enough to buy a Kit.
      I Need only Kombi weapons or only rockitlauncher. More Marines is the only Thing i dont Need.

  6. Also, just my opinion. Since space marines are suppose to have everything, (/wink) tactical squads, along with all of their other standard equipement, should also have chainswords too.

  7. The representation of chainswords means nothing tho... And they can't carry both a chainsword and a pistol to gain the +2 attacks anyways. Would be a nice way to get an assault squad without jump packs for cheaper tho ;)

    1. +1 attack* for two weapons rather...

      Delete
    2. Why not? Chaos Marines carry bolter, bolt pistol and chainsword. Try telling them they can't mag-lock their bolter and not get a +1 attack for the 2nd close combat weapon.

      Delete
    3. I was simply wishing they would add the chainsword to the squad in the new codex. Not saying they would get the +1A now. Since it isn't apart of the squad's entry in the codex.

    4. Chaos Marines carry bolter, bolt pistol, and chainsword... if they pay for it.

      Delete
    5. Thats right, they did change that to pay for play thing instead of automatic. Gives me hope for the codex marines.

  10. Has anyone thought Dark Angels could be involved in the standard Space Marine codex?

    I'll probably be ridiculed for such a comment but it could be the case.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Well, presently Dark Angels are pretty bland on the tabletop and there isn't much to justify a seperate dex from codex space marines. However, since Mat Ward is writing their new book I expect that to change.

      Delete
    2. I won't add any comment on this, other than it has both advantages and disadvantages, because whenever I mention the idea in the comments section I accidentally start a flame war.
      Slightly off-topic, but weren't Black Templars being put in the standard marine codex anyway? They have even less of a reason to be a separate entity than Dark Angels.

    3. Im hoping BT and DA get golded into vanilla>:)

      Delete
    4. They have DA vets RW Box & ICs currently Out.
      Its Bad to Not keep selling them by ditching a Army & makeing it just a List.
      Some People Collection SM & DAs

      Less SM dexes is Bad for Profit

      Delete
    5. Why would you want less diversity? GW would anger a lot of DA and BT players if they just threw away their codexes, and if space wolves and blood angels get their own codex I can't see any reason for no DA and BT. Plus both are pretty divergent from the codex astartes.

      Delete
    6. SoB treatment! Mwhahaha! Youll have new rules just no new models!

      Delete
    7. Actually it would very much fit GWs sales ethic to throw DA and BT in the same dex as vanilla. It would cut printing costs, and sales would be the same because DA BT players would still buy the dex. Add to that, they would probably scrap the chapter boxes in favor of upgrade kits. This would lower their production costs and at the same time cost you mor money, thus increasing sales. Welcome to the Chaos legion lump dex!

      Delete
    8. I rather think the oposit!
      If you Take Salamanders or whitescares & Give them dexes and maybe a few uniq ICs & Units you Could sell more. Players would be intressted in Background & rules.

      Besides why did they Ever Give BAs DAs GKs BTs a solo dex if it makes more Money haveing it all in One?

      Delete
    9. Because secret legions who have the most terminator armour and fight daemons and space vikings who ride WOLVES deserve their own codexes!

      Delete
  11. Being a Codex Space Marine player, that sounds fine to me. I dought that will happen. Their 1st and 2nd Companies is divergent from The Codex Astartes. Roboute would not be pleased ;). I'm still looking forward to seeing Codex Dark Angels as a potential ally.
