Rumour Watch: More Space Marine Rules!!

More coming in about the upcoming Codex. Again, can't wait to see them be released. It's going to be sweet!

Also, just a quick piece on reliability. "The book I have looks like the final. If this is a fake then a ton of effort has gone into this." Take it as you will, if it's all fake then more fool us.

  1. So Calgar is seemingly the only way to retain the old-school combat tactics? He sounds like he will be an absolute support MACHINE. 3 warlord traits, ultramarine chapter tactics (tactical, devastator etc) and still retains the old school combat tactics... That's crazy. Shame he's nearly 300pts...
