Angels of Death – Codex Supplement 48-97-60 – Warhammer 40,000
Livre en anglais uniquement. Strike Forces of the Space Marines. The finest warriors Mankind has ever known. Space Marines stride boldly across the galaxy, taking no prisoners, roaring benedictions to the Emperor as they cleanse planets and systems of alien filth. As the enemies of Humanity rise and gather, the Space Marines will be there to meet them with bolters primed and chainswords screaming. Each Space Marine is a genetically-engineered master of combat, sworn to perform his duty to the Emperor until victory… or death. This 128-page softback supplement is designed for any Codex: Space Marines army. Included within: – a guide to Strike Forces and Chapter organisation, including 4 Army List Entry datasheets and 14 Formations; – background and organisation on White Scars, Imperial Fists, Iron Hands, Salamanders and Raven Guard Chapters, as well as their typical Strike Forces; – rules for the Terminator Captain, Cataphractii Terminators and Contemptor Dreadnought; – Warlord Traits, Relics and Tactical Objectives; – four complete psychic disciplines available to Space Marines Librarians of all Chapters (including Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Space Wolves, Grey Knights and Deathwatch)
As a guy who plays Salamanders and Iron Hands, I couldn’t be happier (short of a full codex for those chapters…), and anyone seeking to play White Scars, Imperial Fists, Black Templars, Crimson Fists, or Raven Guard, this book is for you. New chapter specific warlord traits, new chapter rules in addition to the old ones, and formations that allow for even further use of chapter specific rules. There are also chapter relics for each chapter in the codex, some cool, others somewhat head scratching. For example, the Iron Hands have a power axe that, while being master crafted and hitting on +4 strength on rolls of 6, is otherwise a power axe, and entirely inferior to a run of the mill powerfist. But on the flip side of this, they get a master crafted combi-melta that has unlimited shots, which can be given to even rank and file sergeants. These little hiccups in otherwise awesome additions are the main reason I’m not rating it five stars, but another would be the paltry serving of lore fluff. Not a reproduction of the codex Space Marines, but not much new information. I’m not asking for an essay on each chapter, but you’d think that since this is a supplement, they could skip the retreading on certain points. Overall though, very happy, and can’t wait to roasts some heretics for the emperor.
