the 40k Open Day is soon - we will get enough stuff this month :D
Nice retro feel (heat ray!), will be good to see painted! (and not in the chipped white of an old-school room heater)
What I think? I think I need at least one of these!
Choooooooooom! That thing should be great for Zone Mortalis - or against infantry armies :D
I don't care about how useful this thing can be, I need it for my Dreadnought. <3Please FW, show us some Ultramarine Swagemptor Dread at the Open Day! :'^<
Can't wait for the UM dread and Termi's!
Did anyone else notice the rules update... it now has 3 attacks... thats cool and all but doesn't a reg dreadnought have 4 attacks now?
Hmm in the profile is states +1 attack for adding a CCW... normally it is +1 attack if you have 2 CCWs so maybe in this case you get +1 attack for each CCW, what do you guys think?
It doesn't mention anything about losing an attack if the CCW is replaced, so I simply think it's an early christmas gift from FW to all the Contemptor lovers out there.. ;)
I think you just have +1 attack if you bring 2 CCWs.But thanks to poor wording, you could TECHNICALLY have 4 attacks just by buying another CCW - wish "grants the Dreadnought an additional CC attacks" - no matter if you keep the first one, as you don't lose any attack by remplacing your CCW...So yeah, +1 attack for taking the optional CCW and another +1 for wielding two. It is possible if you RAW it. But don't. It makes no sense.The rules just suppose you still have your basic CCW when buying the other.But as I said, RAW makes it possible, so...
Woaw... I guess you're right, Idaeus... Replacing the ranged weapon with the CCW and then replacing the standard CCW with a ranged weapon (such as the free TL heavy-bolter) would technically, based on the wording of the upgrades, give it an additional attack for free..Now that said, I believe the "This grants the Dreadnought an additional close combat attack" is a reference to 2 CCW => +1 attack rule. But I can easily see how this could be understood as first mentioned.
Exactly that. Fortunately I think 99% of the playerbase will assume the +1 is for double CCW. But, hey, we must be prepared if we ever meet the local That Guy...^^

In other news: Wolf King is up for pre-order ^_^
*closes eyes and hopes Santa got that early letter in the mail*
since i was rather happy with Cybernetica (besides that it arrived 2 months late ... >.>) i have ordered it ... and who knows, if they are faster this time, i can give a review :p
I don't care about the rules. They look awesome and I already have 2 on order. Wish they would do more 30k art showing them employed.
To be fair as far as i can tell they're quite alright rulewise.. Granted they're not Kheres, but at least they are TL...But even if they were the price of a tank with bolter stats i'd still equip most of my Dreads with them, so I know what you mean. ;)
