Information from the latest White Dwarf is circulating, and with a small look into the first book we are waiting for in 2017, the Fall of Cadia.

Just got my WD. Man, those painting guides of Celestine and the sub-assembly shots of Cawl make it really hard not to pre-order the set. Hngh.

And I would personally *really* prefer GW not unravelling all the mysteries of the 40k lore to boost sales. The MIDDLE of the 13th Black Crusade is as far as I'd go, personally, beause we had that already under people I trust more than the current design studio and if that's as far as they're willing to push it, okay. Returning primarchs, explaining away every mystery of the Nids origin, the tomb king Necrons, no, thank you.

PS: The Black Templar plus -I- pic is showing them on a moon called Klasius and trying to get *away* from Abaddon': forces. "Their deliverance comes from an unexpected direction..."

PPS: Spoiler from the sales blurb of Fall of Cadia, which is described as the first in "a new series":
Cadia falls DURING this book
. Thanks, GW.

Edit (keep the typos, I'm in a hurry): Jes Bickham is the dude responsible for "the Gathering Storm project". At the end of the article he says "the End Times (well, die Endzeit) have only just begun". Primarchs and C'tan minis are a go, I guess. Steve Buddle did Cawl and the Inquisitor and Brian Nelson did Celestine.

Quote from the batrep intro: "With the BT and Cadians I could build one of the new formations from Fall of Cadia - the Wrathful Crusade".

I'd say you're good

The batrep is terrible, though. It's a shame, because it is a 5k BT/Sisters/Guard/surprising ally vs Black Legion fight with what seen to be studio armies of an unusually high painting standard. The few shots that are well done really pop and make me want to buy all models depicted, as a batrep should. But: most pics are small and dark, the armies and tactics questionable and for some reason *cough[the Imperium players' stated goal is to show off how awesome the new triumvirate is (buy all three, get some formation in the box). Abaddon is in the game as well, guess what happens.

Caw has a melter weapon it seems (one of his guns is a Solar Atomiser, the other an arc...something, maybe scourge? [Bogengeißel]) and he has a rule Canticles of the Arch Magos to boost CM units and vehicles and uses a War chant of Strenght to give a 12" reach?/bubble? -it doesn't say- 5++ to vehicles. Is that new? Greyfax is a lvl 2 psyker, they call her a telepath, but I'm not sure if that means her disciplines or if that's just current GW lingo for a psyker, I stopped reading GW material in German once they started their half-translated books. Nothing on Celestine's rules outside of allowing armour saves for Termis, it seems, but again the write-up is really imprecise.

Oh, and Fall of Cadia has a handy Empyrean Storm D66 chart that you roll on EVERY TURN to get effects like "all models regenerate a wound", " "all models move +1/+3 if psyker or demon ", "roll a D6 for every psyker, thy lose a random psy power on a 6", "one random psyker doubles his sAr, T and A", "double the range of all powers" etc.. You all love charts and rolling, right?
