Iron Hands Codex Supplement: Rumored Rules


Iron Hands, one of the top new Space Marine Chapter options in the newly released codex, now has some rumors to what we might find in a codex supplement.


Please add extra salt on this rumor, at the request of the source. There is some question on whether or not this was speculation or work in progress. Getting this out though, might inspire other sources to chiming in if they know something along these lines.

I've been given a slight nudge towards the Iron Hands Supp, might be nothing, there was a hint towards the special issue wargear that they would have access too, 

A Servo-Harness for Captain/CM, also gaining the rules of Blessing of the Omnissiah, though not gaining the chapter trait for the 1+, letting techmarines and MoF still have that little niche. Weither it can be used with Terminator Armour is still up in the air.

A standard upgrade is also being added to the choices for characters, which is a 1+ to FnP, something about robotic limbs.

Also Techmarine's may be an upgrade to Tactical Squads/Purchased per Tactical Squad, not sure which the hint was very very held-back.

  1. I'd love to have techmarines as Sargents to tactical squads. Purely from a fluff view.
    I was really looking forward to the rumor that DA tacticals could upgrade sargents to mini-chaplains. Didn't happen but would have been awesome.

    1. You could always take Vet. Sarg's with pistol/power maul and represent them with a chaplain. No rules bonuses but it'd look awesome!

    2. That's what I'm doing... and using skull helmets

    3. Yeah for my DA my Chaplains are all squadies, one is a power maul sergeant, one is the bolter banner bearer in my command squad, etc etc

  2. Techmarine sergeants sounds great to me. Didn't they do something similar for one of the chapters in the Badab war book from Forgeworld?

    1. That was Red Scorpions. If Chapter Master Culln was your HQ dude, you could sacrifice combat tactics and make your tac sergeants into apothecaries for free.

  3. I pray that Imperial Fist Independent characters get Eternal warrior in the IF supp.

    1. Seriously pretty much everything we've heard about this release has been just a giant middle finger to chaos space marines....sigh.

    2. yeah a lot of these options would be great for iron warriors.

    3. The IW still might get similar and/or better when they get their own supp?

    4. You know better than that. Just take a look at the worthless Black Legion supplement for your answer. CSM are just going to stay shafted for all of sixth ed at the very least.

    5. Even if we do, by some miracle, get a supplement bone, its going to be a year or two before even half the legions get the love. Because as each codex comes out they are going to take up supplement release space with their OWN supplements, not to mention if we get multiples then the other books will too taking up more space. So if your REALLY lucky all the legions MIGHT get rules just in time for a new edition and codex....good job GW, fuck heads!

    6. There really is no excuse for defending the continuous insults and shafts from gw to chaos players. Half the characters and a whole chapter in the Corpse Worshiper dex can have eternal warrior FOR NO REAL REASON, but Lucius the Temporary cannot?

    7. To be fair there's only two characters with EW in the SM codex and the ability to make one more with a relic shield. Eldar however have the most EW. And the Daemons got incredibly shafted going from all to one....and that one only has 2 wounds. I do feel the chaos pain, however there is the ability to get EW in the chaos dex through winning challanges etc.

    8. HAHAHA oh yeah winning "challenges" I believe you misspelled unsuccessful suicides.

  5. Mixed armour saves for Tacticals- THAT whould be game changing. Look at space wolves. OK they have a ccw , but i prefer less attacks and more power fist- you have the dakka for ranged hordes, after all.

  6. who would even run any of this crap? no one who cares about winning, that's for sure.

  7. A special character for ironhands would be nice, seeing as they are the only chapter that cannot take one.
