Here is a tiny rumor bit hinting at a new land speeder type that will make the new Dark Angels codex. I dont know if it is the same as the new flyer we are supposed to see, or something completely new.


This bit is from the question about if there are going to be any new units in the codex. So while vague and brief, it is at least something for a late Sunday afternoon.

Please remember that this is a rumor.

You can certainly expect a new speeder type

  2. Bite size mini-rumors? I'm all for that.

  3. It probably has Plasma Cannon sponsons, or something similarly plasma-related. I can imagine a name like Land Speeder Torrent or the equivalent.

    1. The land speeder Flashburn: Featuring twin linked assault cannon with plasma ammo, twin linked plasma cannons and some form of plasma missile launcher! Use with caution, gets hot.

    2. Flashburn is a pretty good name actually.

    3. Twin Linked Plasmacannons? Oh Hell no, this is Matt Ward baby.
      It'll have TL-Ass Cannon in the front, a Multimelta for the rider, a plasma blaster for the driver, typhoon missile launchers, and two plasma cannons underneath each typhoon missile launchers.
      All with lesser Night Shield +3 to front and side armor.
      And some golden age mumbo jumbo that lets it count as stationary anytime it shoots. Also gives it interceptor and skyfire.

    4. And of course, the gets hot is negated on a 4+ like most vehicles but with the ward angles rerollable.

      You forgot the fact that it's AV 14 on all sides and immune to melta

    6. Also, it can fight in melee like a dread and vectorstrike at S7. Obviously.

      ...the sad thing here is the fact that about half of this I can see Ward actually doing.

    7. Hmm...doesn't sound quite right. You forgot to add the transport capacity, but for a squad of termies instead of scouts.

    8. Rumors says that a character is riding this beast of a landspeeder. the Character is named Mathew Le'ward. He got some extra ordinary special rules making all plasma fire str 10 large blast ap 1. Atleast that´s what I´ve heard.

    9. And for 5 more points this new special character makes your entire army immune to plasma and gets hot

    10. It also gets +1 to it's jink saves.

  4. Well, that was well elaborated. I assume this means a new pattern, which is not all to suprising to me.

  5. I can add to the above with a few extra tidbits.

    It comes base with plasma guns instead of regular mounted weapons, with a plasma cannon upgrade option.

    Also rather than being dark green, much like the death & raven wings this new 'Plasma Wing' will be plasma-green coloured.

    The breathing grill on the marines' helmets breathing grills will also be placed by plasma coils, because Dark Angels must now live, & BREATHE plasma.

    Also, there is an unconfirmed rumour plasma in addition to the above being involved.

      Don't blame Natfka that this is all the information that's available, he is just reporting it.

  8. Soooo??? Is it a diffrent Color or is 1 statt diffrent that doesnt matter?

    Sounds like hot Air to me :/

  9. I like it! Hmm...we gotta expect a new, unique weapon on this speeder. Something along the lines of the Skyhammer, but plasma.

    1. Plas-hammer? Although I don't see why it can't have skyhammer, they're allowed to put weapons on more than just one type of unit!

      Delete
  10. Was really just using that as a example. GW is doing the unique weapon type for new units, it seems. Baleflamer, skyhammer, ecto plasma cannon thing for the dino dread. Just makes sense to me, if it is a new variant speeder, it'll need a new weapon that makes it unique.

    1. That's fair enough, I've noticed the trend myself. It just seems a that everyone has something unique when they don't need to. Bale flamer was ok but ectoplasma was lame, should've just been plasma cannons (unless of course I've missed something)

  11. Plasma cannon LS all the way...
    A rumor about RW book by BL talks about 2 new kind of speeders...
    LS Vengeance with plasma cannon and LS Darkshroud with night field projector.
    I guess the LSV will have plasma cannon in the underside where the assault cannon sits and probably a plasma cannon/blaster for the gunner too...
    We will see what will happen...

  12. Naftka... The guy in the utalian forum spoke again...
    According to his fonts:
    - WW recut with a third misile rack with a single bigger missile...
    - two kind of flyers one bigger and one smaller...

    The new WW could be the rumored AA variant... The two flyers could be the rumored Darktalon and Nephilim from BL RW book.

    Thake these rumors with HUGE amount of salt...

    1. A single big missile sounds like the opposite of anti-air.

  13. Dark Angels to get stormravens after all they ave twin linked plasma cannons???

    ReplyDelete
  14. maybe they took sammael's landspeeder and mass produced it. the jetbike thing was clearly stated "last surviving jetbike" the upgraded land speeder wasn't limited edition.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Guess Sammael just hasn't been willing to give his bike to the Mechanicum to attempt reverse engineering.
