All three of these new fortifications are designed to fit together with all the Wall of Martyrs Sets. (This sounds cool). Not only that, but each box set is will have its own rules for use in both Apocalypse games and standard Warhammer 40k games.

These fortifications and the rulebook are probably why I want the Apocalypse book. Of course Games Workshop is not making me buy the Apocalypse book to get these rules (rules inside the box is big). Of course I am dying to see some stats and rules for these, and how they are used.

Nothing official has been released, which means any information is still considered rumors.

If you want to see the kits, they still can be found on these forums

    Whelp, there go my Heldrakes. If these can be taken in normal 40k games, then the CSM codex is officially garbage.

    2. ...and it's peppered with chunks of Helldrakes! LOL

    3. If the ability to rely on heldrakes was really the only leg the CSM dex had to stand on, it was already officially garbage.

      Now, I dispute that claim, but I'm just saying.

  7. Macro cannon is in the core book, weapon section, auto weapons, page 56. Assuming no other changes than the ability to shoot flyers it should be S7, AP4, 72" range, heavy 2, large blast.

  9. Unholy conversion.. if it will fit.. take the Icarus quad cannons.. and mount them on a Rhino.. thus answering the Marines anit air needs... unholy two... mount an Icarus on to a land raider termius ultra... so that would be three twin link lazcannons

  11. A MACROCANNON...?!? Why does GW keep on sizing down macrocannons? The shell alone is the size of a tank (unlike that in the 6th ed rulebook), and if you look at the ships of the IN most of the cruisers and battleships (which are usually the size of cities, BTW) they have literally kilometers spanning with macrocannons.

  12. Natfka, have you heard anything about old fortifications getting Apoc rules? My Fortress Of Redemption could use some love to make it more deadly in Apoc.

    ReplyDelete
  13. will there be rules for the existing wall of martyrs?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Seven vortex missiles? They better be taking a massive hit in the rules, otherwise that's just insane.

    Plus, Apoc games currently never get to turn 7, so that probably means that you can either fire multiple missiles per turn, or there are rules intended to speed up Apoc games and allow for seven turns. Or they just included the seven missile limit for reasons unknown.

  15. i like the rules in the box part

  16. Great, more stuff released that I can't actually use. GW, why do you have Nids so much?

  17. My Iron Warriors will be very, very happy if those fortification rumors are true.

    1. Rumours? I thought it was clear now that it was fact? People have got the white dwarf after all and the pics are out?

    2. Pretty much, but I won't be satisfied until I see the rules myself.
      A Quad-linked Icarus Lascannon, a Macro Cannon that can target flyers, or a Vortex missile in a regular 40k game sounds horribly overpowered.

      Delete
  18. The Macrocannon in the main book is a little underwhelming, and given that its going to cost a mint in points (and dollars), I hope they beef it up a bit, even for standard 40K games.

    1. Isn't it S7 72" Heavy2 Large blast?
      I know that Apoc tends to be over the top and all, but for regular games that is just insanomatic sauce

  19. Why do all fortifications have to have an imperial look and feel to them?

    Am I the only one who would like to see more themed fortifications for the other races in the universe.

    1. I agree, and I expect them to come with time. For now the Imperium is the "main character" of 40k, and they get the mostr love first.

  20. Are those 7 vortex missiles going to be the same as they have been in the past? as in a 10" blast that wipes out everything it lands on. if so that's stupidly over-powered.

    1. If you expect Apocalypse to be a balansed game you are going to have a bad time.
