    Do you think that the Mortis Dreadnought will have the ability to Skyfire like its Forge World counterpart?
    Interesting you ask. I just heard a rumor that there is a AA option for DA that will likely make it to all chapters eventually.

    Nothing solid. Somewhere else someone mentioned army wide gets hot rerolls, but that sounded like wishlisting with all the plasma rumors abounding.

    So my sources say.

    IIRC the DW box WIP had only one robed terminator body for the Sgt/champion. But I still don't know if that will be part of this release for sure.

    You're welcome, but don't thank me yet. Remains to be seen if I have any accurate info from my sources this go around.

    So a end of November White Dwarf (December issue) and a release in December sometime?
    Answering as best I am able.
    So my sources tell me.

    I took it as each type could take one. So PA command squad could get a single heavy weapon, apoth, standard, etc. A TA squad the same, but that the RW command squad was 3 bikes and a attack bike w hvy weapon, or 5 bikes, but not a LS. The history here does not point to GW breaking the concept that a RW full squad is still 10 man strong, 6 bikes, a AB, and a LS.

    Same stats and special rules as normal Chaplains from Codex: SM and BA?
    Sorry, I think I missed a + there. base unit was described as 3 man, but additional models could be added to a max unit size which was not given to me.

    Most like. But they have some form of hunters from hyperspace type rule in addition. And they might have some new DA special weapons...dark claws or dark swords, you know, to egg on the stereotypes... ;P

    DA version of Sternguard?
    I don't know, plasma pistols most likely. infernus is pretty much a BA thing. hand flamers are possible. I'm speculating more than anything here, I don't have solid info.

    Yes. Separate. Options? hmm...

    DA seem to focus on getting close, but not too close.

    No info to share here.

    SB, PS, LC, TH, SS, AC, AssC, PC, HF, CML, CF, PA, and PF are all the options I've heard rumored. Default is standard SB PF, Sgt w SB PS. Of note, AC and the PASS combo both are new info that's been whispered to me.

    No plasma sponsons, plasma cannon turret is supposedly like the Leman variant. Heard a deviant rumor that they have meltagun sponsons as an option too...
    So PC, AC, LasC w HB, HF, MG sponsons. Supposed to be a new kit with BA Pred style sponsons and DA icons included.

    No word, but assume the current variants. Ares/Plasma LR unlikely.

    Quote Originally Posted by Arbedark View Post

    Sounds like the HVY slot dread is the standard, and the specialist DA dread is Elite. and either can be upgraded to ven...for what that's worth now.

    Nothing solid. Only what I've mentioned before.
