    IG Rumour Summary IV

    ***READ THIS FIRST***

    In order to stop yourself looking completely stupid, I suggest you do the following BEFORE posting any new rumours or questions.

    1) Read the first 2 posts (General and Rules info in P1, Minis and Artwork info in P2)
    2) Check the time these posts were last edited
    3) Read AT LEAST all the posts AFTER these posts were last edited

    If after all that your rumour hasn’t appeared, or your question hasn’t been asked, feel free to post it.

    Please keep the discussion related to new rumours or how current rumours may impact you or other rules etc. Note, this includes discussing nonsense background material like the fuel used by Leman Russes.

    For a clearer version of the IG summary sheet, please refer to Scryer in the Darkness' translation here:

    General info

    Release date is 2 May 2009.

    The new codex will be 104 pages long.

    Pre-orders have already gone up on GW and other sites.

    GW stores are now getting preview copies of the Codex.

    Rumoured to include at least 2 waves of releases. It is unclear when the second wave will appear.

    Rules

    Army-wide Special Rules

    Orders

    Orders can be issued to any disembarked non-vehicle squad.
    Company Commander can issue up to two Orders within 12".
    Platoon Commander can issue one Order within 6".
    Orders may not be issued whilst embarked unless vehicle has “Mobile Command Vehicle”.
    Vox casters allow a re-roll of the Ld test

    Orders given at start of the shooting phase. Company Commander places Orders first, then Platoon Commanders. Orders resolved immediately and count as the Squad’s shooting. Receiving unit must pass LD test with the following affects:

    Double 1 - They follow the Order and can be given another
    Pass – They follow the Order
    Fail – They fail the Order, but can act as normal after other orders are resolved
    Double 6 - They do nothing and no further Orders may be issued that Turn

    Platoon Commander Orders:

    “First rank fire, second rank” - + 1 shot for Lasguns only (so 3 at 12", 2 at 13-24)

    "Incoming!" - Go To Ground with +1 cover save, i.e. +2 total and the unit can't shoot for that turn.

    “Move, move, move!” – Roll 3D6 and take highest when Running.

    Company Commander Orders (all of the Platoon Commander ones plus):

    "Bring it down" - Twin Links all weapons shooting at tanks, MCs including units or squadrons of them.

    "Target on my command" – Forces enemy unit targeted by the ordered squad to re-roll successful cover saves

    "Get back in the fight!" - Allows a squad to instantly rally or get up from "Down!" This allows them to shoot & assault in that round as well.

    Only Company and Platoon Command Squads and Veterans have access to heavy flamers.
