Warhammer World Exclusive Campaign: Blood Oath


The New Warhammer World Campaign has new formations and dataslates, and the campaign rules have been rather fully revealed. The interesting part is they include a lot of dataslates for Khorne Daemonkin.

Of course I find that I am liking the Imperial Formations better, but so much focus on the Khorne Daemonkin codex gives me great hopes for the other Daemonkin Codices that are rumored in our future.

The Forces in Blood Oath- Each gets a dataslate formation.
Ultramarines 1st company:
The Spear of Sicarius:
Grey Knights Emperors Hand Strike Force:
Anvil of the Emperor - Knights and Titans


and now: the bad guys
The Bloodied Horde (Khorne Daemons)
The Fist of Khorne (Berzerkers)
The Goreguard (Anggrath and Bloodthirsters)
Hellforged Hunting Pack (Daemon Engines)

  1. Glad I can finally take a brass scorpion in my daemonkin army. Also glad to see FW units and GW units (as if they weren't the same) living together in harmony in one GW book.

    I am not thrilled about all these exclusive dataslates coming out, as it gives an advantage to those who have the rules over those who don't, but luckily they always seem to leak and I doubt anyone will have an issue with anyone using these rules without some exclusive warhammer world booklet.

    1. Oh because exclusive dataslates stay exclusive for long. Even the 800 dollar one was spoiled the day, if not the hour they showed up at someone's house.

    2. I highly doubt the local GW manager here would allow anyone to use a dataslate without having the official copy in hand. He doesnt allow FW models in store without permission from him first. So yeah, there are situations where these exclusive rules actually are exclusive. Simple solution though - dont go to a GW store to play 40k. At least not the one here.

    3. Hey, you bought the models and you have the codex. If you memorize the formation rules and your friend knows you're legit, I don't see the problem. Alternatively buy yourself a game board, pick up a couple folding tables, and play at home with your friends.

      Delete
    4. Alternatively, 'make up' your own formation, tell your friend it's the Blood Oath one, and say it's a casual game for fun.

    5. Wow that manager is a jerk. What store is he at, that behavour is against...well everything we are taught.

    6. Probably some old guard douchebag that doesn't like forgeworld.

    7. Never understood people's problem with Forgeworld models.

    8. There's a stigma that they're OP or something when most of them are more expensive than the 'better solution'.

      Alternatively, it's jealousy.

    9. Thanks to the Internet, anyone can download a pdf and have the rules.

    10. This is not a warhammer world exclusive it's going to be a warhammer store exclusive as in direct order. Not The Same thing.

    11. Footstomping will continue anyway. It's crazy.

      Delete
    12. The Store Manager here has a problem with FW models also. Since he can't sell it he says it hurts the store...I showed him these new formations and he said if I wanted to run the Brass Scorpion one I would have to convert a defiler instead of use the FW model. Really? He isn't the only one. I've been to two GW stores in Houston where they won't allow FW in store.

      Delete
    13. Yeah since they cant sell it, they dont want it being 'showcased' in a game in their store. Thats what I assumed it was about. Too bad though, I spent about $3k in his store over the course of a year or so. Since that day I havent been back to his store, and likely never will. I order direct now, or buy from the locally owned flgs.

    14. FG i suppose you were taught that other games were fine in your store right....going against what GW teaches.......yep i certainly believe that. /saracsm

      Delete
    15. Where did you get "other games" from? He said that telling people they can't use FW models is against what store managers are taught by games workshop. At no point did he say anything about non-games workshop games. Either read posts properly, or stop making shit up just to be confrontational

      Delete
    16. Stunningly shortsighted and idiotic store manager - I bet they wonder why their sales are bad.

      Delete
    17. Well, I can understand GW managers being against FW stuff... they're basically having to compete, since FW sales are money out of the store, and that hurts the manager's quota, which leads to the store maybe being closed for not selling enough, and the guy loses his job.

      Don't blame a guy for wanting to keep his job. Blame the idiots who make the policies that lead to their company competing with itself.

      Delete
    18. Sorry but that is nonsense. GW pays the store managers, and they are supposed to be representatives of the company. The company that makes and sells the Forgeworld products that the employee has a problem with. A call up the food chain seems warranted for someone being so ridiculous about his employer's wares.

      Delete
    19. At my local store in Leeds never had a problem with Forgeworld stuff as long as you had the book with the rules in and the model all was ok. I enjoy going up against the models people used to bring in.

      Delete
    20. Yes I have several IA books and a significant portion of two of my armies are FW models. The day I wanted to use a FW heavy list I was basically shamed for trying to field - ver batim - "FW Cheese".. After being a loyal customer to the store for a year+, I was pretty offended and turned off. Its ok though, I found a new place to play, which is actually a bit more laid back of a meta. Everything worked out.

  2. Anyone else read the title on the supplement as being 'Blood Bath'?

    The Knee Jerk in me instantly decided that GW simply weren't trying any more.

    2. No doubt! Use your dread claw as a Str D ap1 cannon, then first turn assault with 25 berzerkers (assuming daemonkin allows that many in a unit).

      Too bad this is a limited edition pay-to-win thing (roll eyes at GW)

      Delete
    3. Ends up being 650 points to possibly assault one unit with 20 berserkers.

      Not to mention you can't intentionally target the vehicle, you've got to scatter on to it. (it doesn't have a mawloc rule). So hope you don't roll a hit next to the vehicle, and then scatter on top of it.

      Delete
    4. I don't see any reason you can't target the vehicle, and that's clearly the rules intent.

      700 pts is steep,.. but if done right you could multicharge a good chunk of enemy army.. and get a D hit as well.

      Delete
    5. Pay to win? Didn't you click on the link? I got mine now.

      Delete
    6. I agree with you, but it isn't worded the way a mawloc is. It really should say "you can choose to target an enemy vehicle or building when arriving by deep strike"

      The mawloc has specific rules for targeting something while deep striking. The claw does not.

      and
      http://bloodofkittens.com/blog/2015/05/16/rumor-it-blood-oath-campaign-about-2/
      vs

      "Terror From the Deep: When arriving from Deep Strike Reserve, a Mawloc can choose to Deep Strike onto a point occupied by another model (friend or foe) – roll for scatter as normal. "

      Delete
    7. Looks like you could try and go for a direct hit, but you're still scattering like normal. The only difference is you aren't going to mishap if you happen to.

      I wouldn't worry about it doing something that isn't usually allowed. The mission in the Butcherhorde dataslate even says that sometimes things like that happen.

      Delete
    8. The formation doesn't say you can assault the turn you arrive from reserve, also the rule saying you can assault on the turn you disembark is pointless as the Kharibdiss is an assault vehicle.

      Delete
  4. The Spear of Sicarius list is a full company worth of Marines. 6 Tac Squads, 2 Devastator, 2 Assault... plus extra's.

    2. I like it too, it feels very much like the Codex: Ultramarines but updated to have modern equipment!

      Less "super-Grimdark" more "Hey this is a game and it's fun! Look at the cool colors!"

  6. Why ultra marines gw? Why not allow me to play this with my fists?

    This shit pisses me off.

    1. It's there for their board. Have you seen the siege on the city? This allows you to bring it to life :P.

      I mean, I wish it wasn't ultramarine too, but ehh... They are all apocalypse scale formations (basically). I am pretty sure people wouldn't have an issue with you inserting the appropriate models for Imp. Fists.

      Delete
    2. I certainly wouldn't... But I expect the same treatment if I were to bring my Iron Hands.

  7. Remind me ... How do we get a legit copy of it? Is this only available in one store, or any store with the Warhammer label?

    2. I think he meant ultramarines specifically not just space marines, and I can see why. Ultramarines are the poster boys for Gdubs and it would be nice for a change.

      Delete
    3. Yes - Ultramarines are clearly the poster boys for 40k, thats why they have their own codex and\or supplements with a whole range of unique miniatures to support it all.

      Oh. Wait. I'm wrong. Thats

      - Blood Angels
      - Space Wolves
      - Dark Angels

      Forgive me. :P

      Delete
    4. I feel the ultramarines represent vanilla Marines better than any others. They don't need their own codex.

      Delete
    5. Ultramarines are the poster boys for 40k. If you think otherwise you've not been playing the same game as everyone else here. If you think the Chapters you just listed qualify as being "poster boys" just because they have their own codices and a few boxes in their range then I assume you think every army in the game qualifies as a "poster boy"?

      Delete
    6. O_o

      It's just a campaign book. Swap out 'Ultramarines' for any Chapter you want and carry on.

      Delete
    7. I agree with Starchild.

      And the Ultramarines are the posterboys because there Primarch wrote the Codex Astartes.

      Delete
    8. I've been collecting 40k since Rogue Trader. Don't make assumptions.

      I'm just saying people need to really put things into perspective when it comes to Ultramarines. The "OMG not more Ultramarines" reaction always makes me laugh, especially when you consider the attention GW gives to Dark Angels, Blood Angels and Space Wolves.

      Delete
    9. Well I do see your point Browning, GW certainly does spread the attention to those chapters but I was thinking of vanilla marines in general. It's mostly ultramarines being represented with splashes of other "vanilla" chapters.

      Delete
    10. Yeah the last couple of years the Dark Angels, Blood Angels and Space Wolves have got alot of attention. People will just hate for the hell of it.

      Delete
  9. Can someone buy me one and ship it to me for few pennys more (something to make it worthier while) I want to go there but I'll probably never have time

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yes and I just finished the ultramarines 1st and 2nd companies. All I need now is to go to WW and get some drop pods, a couple of command tanks and a Blood Oath Book...

    ReplyDelete
  11. Can't see why anyone would bother with Anggrath at the moment... When you could take 3 D weapon thirsters for damn near the same points... And as they are 3 separate models your 888 (or there abouts) points won't be single shot D'd off the table... As frequently happens to me with Anggrath.
    Until they significantly improve all of the Daemon lords I don't think any of them are worth it... Which is a shame as all of them remain on display in my cabinet!

    1. True that i love my anggrath and my other daemon lords. But they dont really do enough to warrant their use in any sort of competitive play. Its fun building lists around them. Tge tzeentch daemon lord is still the craziest in power hes his own army or un godly killing machine.

      Delete
    2. I've never seen them as competitive choices. Those things are built and designed to be something people see when they walk by and drum up conversation. We use them for campaigns as an end game thing, like an end game power up.

    3. i don't play in tournaments, and i totally get the idea of themed lists... but i get quite disappointed when the 'physical embodiment of Khorne' has always been something of a damp squib (imho)... it never seems to perform well, and ever 'repays' it's game point cost... 888 points would be better spent on a Chaos Warhound (with some change) rather than the 'meh' performance of Anggrath. perhaps it's because in our clubs Apoc games he is not even close to being powerful.. but when a 'standard' thirster is probably better than the (allegedly) No.1 thirster is when i start to think that a rules update is needed!

    5. and by standard i mean the 'D Thirster' from the Daemonkin dex...

    6. D thirster is also available from daemons (and can take gifts so he doesn't need to use the D axe if he wants to go before his opponent)

    7. I just played at 24k Apoc with him, and was worth every point. Took so much fire and only lost 3 wounds, but destroyed everything in its path. Not practical, but hella fun.
