The Blood Tithe, Bloodthrister with Strength "D" Attacks, and Hints of Admech!


Are these hints of what is in this week's White Dwarf? It seems that someone may have it or has at least seen it. In this is mentioned a Bloodthirster variant with a strength "D" close combat weapon, units listed of what may be in the codex, and next week's hints (Admech).... All from the White Dwarf


I know a lot of readers dont read comment sections, so this is what is being said currently. Of course we will know for sure soon, but this may be some pre-leak insight.

Please take these are rumors. I have not spoken to Endemion behind the scenes, this is just what he has commented.

These are from the comment section on Faeit 212.

Sadly no, just a new "Army Wide" Blood Tithe rule, keep a running tally of *All* unit deaths, these are points you can spend of special Khornate boons, including summoning Daemons, up to and including a Bloodthirster (One variant of which has a "D" Str melee weapon).

Guessing from all the stuff hinted at/talked about/in pictures in the White Dwarf as it's not actually stated 100% for most of them, it'll be...
Chaos Lord
Normal Marines
Terminators
Forgefiend
Maulerfiend
Defiler
All the Khorne Daemons
Soul Grinder

That's all that's mentioned that I can see, could be other stuff like Raptors/Obliterators etc but just not mentioned in white dwarf.

Does hint that all the Daemons might *not* have Daemonic Instability


Endemion  March 17, 2015 at 7:58 AM
Nope, it's mostly just hints about what's in the Codex, while talking about their special rule. I did forget cultists though, they are in there as well.

Even The White Dwarf Bloodthirster rules are the ones to go with Codex Daemons, they aren't the rules for them from this new Khornate book.



Also regarding Next Week's Hints

The "Next Week in White Dwarf" this week is...
Just loads of strings of binary...
OMG! Etc.

if you translate the binary you get...
A__ H___ M___

Fill in the blanks!

All Hail Mars!!

  2. Well, a D strength Melee weapon might finally make the Bloodthirster worth taking, especially if it's not horrendously overpriced and might be able to go toe-to-toe with those Imperial Knights.

    1. GW should just make the Lord of Battles available in normal games and make a Lord of Battles codex. That would appease the Chaos players a bit.

      Delete
    2. I meant Lord of Skulls. Sorry, too much Epic in my life.

      Delete
    3. Chaos Marines can take a Lord of Skulls as a Lord of War. It's not available to Daemons though.

    5. And as much as I love my Khornedozer, it's painfully overcosted.

      Delete
    6. Daemons can't even have the Greater Brass Scorpion until the IA:13 errata comes out.

      Delete
    7. Lord of Skulls is allowed in normal games?

      Delete
    8. @thediceabide: It's pretty much up to your local gaming place. Most places these days have opened up to allow Lords of War and Forgeworld stuff, so if your place does too, then you can take a Lord of Skulls.

      Delete
    9. More accurately: yes, the 7E BRB explicitly includes and allows Lords of War. Barring them is the house rule.

      Delete
    10. I'm kinda hoping that they slide the lord of skulls in this Khorne 'dex and use it as an excuse to adjust the points cost or the stats so the over pricing is a thing of the past.

      Delete
    11. Its brilliant being able to use Forgeworld models. I don't have any for my wolves but you get to see some nice models and get to have a good battle against them. Some think that its a bad idea but as I always say "the bigger they are the better the saga".

      Delete
    12. In trueness to khorne (and for the love of god) GW should also smash apart all Lord of Skulls molds and order all current Lord of Skulls models to be melted down. Then rescult a model that DOESN'T look like it came straight from the worst of the epic 90s models.

      Delete
    13. Nnnooo not the Khornemover. Fangs of Russ they are good fun to beat apon.

      Delete
    14. also the top half is (my own opinion) are one of the better things GW has made. if it had lower section of legs i would have bought atleast 2 by now. (to go with my x3 defilers, x2 custom knights and a WIP custom warhound- see a theme?)

      Delete
    15. Psssst Zion; read Escalation at some point...

      "A Khorne Lord of Skulls may only be chosen if your primary detachment is from Codex: Chaos Space Marines or Codex: Chaos Daemons. The weapons, wargear and special rules referenced here will be found in one of these codexes or the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook."

      GO GO GOOFY 90s EPIC FOES

      Delete
    16. @RS. You can drop the top half on 2 defiler bases stuck together. With the miracle of ebay it doesn't have to be expensive either. I've got some detailing to complete on my LoK, once done I'll send some photos to Natfka.

  3. Is it an assumption that the thirster's rules or statline changes in the new book or does that commenter know the rules changes?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. God I hope it's a standard thirster (and I believe it is, GW seems to be getting rid of special cases).

      Delete
    2. my guess is it'll be a standard thrister with wargear options

      Delete
    3. If it's like the new ones for Fantasy, it will be same stats (1 variation is literally just the normal Bloodthirster but with a new name to separate it from the others), but with different gear and rules.

      Delete
  4. I don't see Berserkers on the list. Oversight? Or just no Berserkers?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. they DID say no cult troops. Berserkers are cult troops.

      Delete
    2. though tbh idk if it's this book or next csm dex. (either or)

      Delete
  5. PRAISE OMNISSIAH! I hope that it's true!

    2. Why do people only take pictures of the title? What happened to taking pictures of the full page? Back in my day, people didn't just take pictures of the full front page, but leaked pics inside the white dwarf too.

      Delete
    3. the more you break up the leaks, the more page views you get, the more money you get from ads P:

      Delete
    4. I dont think the leaks have anything to do with ads. Its just what someone took and posted on forums. Also google ads dont exactly work like that. It would be cool if they did though.

      Delete
    5. ^ you'd be rich as if it did. also more people would actively participate in blogs that had goofle advertising.

      Delete
  7. I hope that Strength D weapon is just some weapon upgrade or artifact, and not something you only get access to via getting enough unit kills for this blood tithe rule

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I was thinking the exact same thing. I have a bad feeling it's going to be the latter.

      Delete
    2. maybe the codex will provide exclusive exaulted, greater, and lesser rewards for the Daemons?

      Delete
    3. Something unique would be appreciated, at any rate.

      If there is strength D, what you wanna bet it's also unwieldy? :D

      Delete
    4. yeah that would be just great haha...

      Delete
    5. Which is fine, because MCs ignore the Unwieldy USR :D

      Delete
    6. But...you're right thanks to the colossal rule :'(

      Delete
  8. Yeah D weapons ... Another tyranid bane ! Gw definitively love us XD

    1. Yeah, poor nids, they definitely didn't just win a tournament undefeated with over 200 players. ;-)

      Besides, if GW doesn't love you (by giving Nids more formations than any other faction), then FW sure as hell does!

      Delete
    2. Oh no D weapons.... drown it in gaunts.

      Delete
    3. Maybe it's for the insensate rage bloodthirster. I made mine with the whip and axe but used the wrath of khorne right arm to change the whips position

      Delete

    5. I suspect this is gonna be more of a KNIGHT Bane. assuming blood thirsters keep their init score they'll be pretty scary. 6 WS 10 I9 Strength D attacks?

      Delete
    6. You know they're not gonna be that good, man.

      Delete
    7. except unless they nerf blood thirsters they will. thats the BT stat line

      Delete
    8. Lictor shame was actually defeated by darkwynn earlier in the tournament. The final round was essentially a rematch

      Delete
    9. No, Bloodthirsters don't have strength D attacks... that was the point.

      Delete
  9. Actually he lost one game to the guy he eventually beat for first. But yeah lictors are so terrible then won LVO.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think it's fairly obvious that the strength D weapon is the dual handed Axe.

    I would also guess that Possessed, Warp Talons and Mutilators will be in the codex. Question is, what about Skarbrand? My guess is that he is canned and replaced by the 3 new Thirsters.

    So besides the Blood Tithe army wide rule, Id guess that there will be new Khorne relics and Daemonic Gifts.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. skarbrand is definitely canned sadly... he could have had a model with the new kit, but he didnt, so he wont be making an appearance following recent unit drops for units that dont have models

      Delete
    2. Ka'Bandha would fit the daemon with the flail, at least. Skarbrand isn't likely at all, although if the new codex doesn't replace codex: daemons (and why would it?) then he'll still be an option. At least until that codex gets replaced.

      Delete
    3. watch for a new faq where all khorne units and options get removed from the current daemon and chaos marine dexes P:

      Delete
    4. question is if the axe will impact initative at all. a strength D weapon at init 9 seems a tad insane so I imagine it will.. still WS10, SD A6... that'll be bad ass even at I: 1

      Delete
    5. Well if it is at Initative that will suck for who ever receives it. But to be honest I don't see it happening.

      Delete
    6. In my opinion they should not give this blood thirster Strength D Weapon. Even An'ggrath has not Strength D. They definitly should concentrate to make the models more durable or faster, so it will at least arrive in the melee fight...

      Delete
    7. well the fantasy two-hander is a strikes last weapon i believe, so it will probably be the same here

      Delete
    8. Maybe it would work with the blood tithe like the bloodthirster goes blood crazed and gets str D attacks. the rules had better be good.

      Delete
    9. my guess is they'll give it unweildy and forget that MCs ignore unwieldy, thus creating a rediuclasly OP mini until they come back and fix it in a few years

      Delete
    10. I'm struggling to understand how a S:D would be overpowered. Bloodthirsters are barely durable enough to make it into combat as is and have no notable shooting. At I:1 they would get shredded by Knights (and pretty much everything else).

      Delete
    11. ya if they make him attack at initiative 1 he will be worthless for all the trouble you have to go through to get him into combat.

      Delete
    12. It's more likely he could exchange all / half of his attacks for a single D attack or some such.
