and from an early buyer on DakkaOriginally Posted by FFG
I picked up Honor the Chapter at my FLGS today and just cracked it open.
The following chapters have in-depth coverage (8-9 pages)
There's a chapter containing rules on drawing up a 'Codex' marine, which on first blush I think means a non-Deathwatch marine so you can extend games to playing in the Chapters themselves. There's then a section on Successor chapters from the Blood Angels, Dark Angels and 'Codex' in brief. Finally there's a section creating a Legion of the Damned marine as a player character (!).
There's then a lengthy chapter on cool named relics from many of the Chapters covered in the book followed by a brief chapter on the Space Marine chapters and how they shape the marines coming to the Deathwatch.
You could start them out as a rag-tag bunch of misfits and give them enough XP after each 'battle' to slowly become a crack commando squad sent behind the enemy lines to hit the opponent where it hurts.
So Amazon just emailed me saying Koronus Bestiary has been pushed back yet again to January 2013. Is this book actually out somewhere else?
I do wish these would get in to Amazon faster. Also, are we to expect Honour the Chapter in July? The FFG website says it's still at the printer.
Good to know. My order for the Bestiary was canceled from Maelstrom a week ago, reason; the title is no longer available. So I will wait and order again come July.
Anybody have Honour the Chapter yet? I was wondering about the new information on the Carcharodons chapter, since they are mighty.
Now Amazon have pushed Honour the Chapter back to January 10th 2013. It's ridiculous how long it takes FFG to get those to Amazon. I'm all for brick and mortar stores, but these books are expensive, and I'm not going to buy all of them full price.
Alright, I'm done with my frustrated rant.
I would just wait a while, amazon and release dates are usually not a good fit.
I recently recieved an email, that a book I ordered will be delayed by several weeks, a day or two after this I recieved another mail telling me, that the book is no longer available. However the very next morning I found the book in the mail...very interesting story, but true.
On the same topic, the book is in stock at a larger German retailer since the beginning of july.
I've been waiting forever for the Koronus Bestiary to become available on the Barnes and Noble website. I've just about given up on it.
I have my copy of Koronus Bestiary in hand, right now. Awesome. The random Xeno generator is great. All of the Aspect Warriors, including Shadow Specters, are in the book.
Best of all...
SHOKK ATTAK GUN RULES!!!
(Just in time for my PCs to encounter in my RT campaign in an Ork planetary invasion!)
Bowling for beakies...
Wow. I'm so out of touch with a lot of this stuff.
