Default Imperial Armour VIII: Raid on Kastorel-Novem

Just got this book today, and it is fantastic. Still reading through it, but the layout is incredible. There is a bit in here for Marines and Imperial Guard, but the vast majority of it is for the Orks. The special characters are uncharacteristically good for Forge World. The biker boss has longer-ranged guns than normal and a Power Klaw that strikes at Initiative 4 (5 on the charge!). Really nasty stuff. He can also Tank Shock like a vehicle if he doesn't want to charge. He doesn't have some of the same options as a normal Biker boss, but he also gets Wazdakka's FOC rule.

It also has rules for fielding an entire army of walkers, including the big ones that Forge World released recently.


The result of the campaign:
[spoiler]
Da Boyz win, and win convincingly. In general, Forge World isn't as kind to the Space Marines and the Imperium as the Studio. One of the few times I can recall the Imperium losing without it being a Pyrrhic victory for their opponents.
[/spoiler]

Yep. They are a little like Killa Kans but converted into regular vehicles with random movement speed.

There are actually a few units in the book that Forge World hasn't released models for, which I found surprising. One of which was Cyborks. Might be a sign of things to come.

:rockon:
What about that stompa with the battlewagon head?
Also, what did it say about the 'Chinork' Warkopta?

If that doesn't scare you out of your frilly pink leotards, guess what: You are an idiot and you hate America.

There are rules for Kustom Stompas, similar to those that appeared in White Dwarf. The Chinork is in. It is basically a skimmer Trukk (not a flyer) with a slightly reduced transport capacity and a Deffgun.

It's about time they do some ORK justice! It gets too bland if the beakies and 'umies win all the time. I just hope there were more books/comics/games/movies about orks, and not the overrated beakie boyz! ;D
