So Roboute Guilliman is coming round the corner and I am so damn excited. Today I wanted to discuss what I feel should be Rob's statline along with why I think so. I will follow this post up with a potential special rules discussion.
WS - 8. I think that Guilliman should have a high weapon skill. This is for 2 reasons. 1, Guilliman fought in the GC for well over a century and enjoyed a very successful career. In that time he used a plethora of different of different weapons (as shown in his weapon hall in 'Unremembered Empire'. 2, Guilliman held his own against his brothers; Angron and Lorgar. He fought well against Curze (wounding him twice and only taking a glancing hit). He is also the only loyal Primarch known to have killed a Primarch.
BS - 6. Fairly standard I think.
S - 6. Standard again.
T - 6. Standard again
W - 6. Standard
I - 6. He wasn't a slow Primarch but he wasn't the fastest.
A - 5. He was known as the Warrior King. To me this suggests he was a efficient and competent fighter.
LD - 10 of course.
We know he is armed with a Gladius and Powerfist. I presume he will have special rules depending on which he uses. I think he will be able to split his attacks too, like Horus.
He is pictured with an Iron Halo so he will have a 4++ save and I believe he will have artificer armour too with a 2+.
So, what do you think?
