Well my current commander works just fine, if it aint broke, dont fix it. However Ill likely add a Shas'el and give him pretty much everything and test him out. What doesnt work comes off, what does stays. Whatevers left after some tweaking will be my new secondary commander.

Well, my new anti Guard suit will most likely be twin-linked Flamers and an Ion Rifle thing!

First off it is impossible to have twin-linked flamers seeing how they are template weapons and it would be pretty useless to have twin linked, impossible to miss weapon.
I am planning on having my second commander be tricked out or have a shas'vre with the new toppings.

You can have twin linked flamers now. And i'm pretty sure they are in the new dex too. My commander will probably stay the same, he works just fine the way he is now.

I'll stick with my commander, maybe try out some si stuff.

I will definitely test out some of the new doodads, but I can't say whether I will change my commander that much yet... Have to wait until I can really see what the things do.

Hello! I've actually got my hands on the new codex and read the stuff at nearby store. I'm gonna start play testing the new stuff.

Like two new weapon sysems
the crisis suits will have a guess weapon with a large blast templete with no cover saves


Both of theses weapons is special issue and only one per army though

The ethereal now can take a honor guard

there is now marker drones which can give a whole unit marker bonuses

so with the new stuff you better get rdy for alot of marker light love

you can also give your HQ better save
the new drones are cool. Cause there toughness is x and there save is x.
So if you attached them to a broad side unit they would have toughness 4 with a 2+ save.

also the reason why crisis suits are so bulky is for the addition of a hard point also you can add a fusion blaster per 3.




also you can self distrust your suits. Have hit and run ability and much more. After reading the book twice just with the old stuff alot has changed.

I've got to try out the SI guns and wargear!

With plasma going up, some of the other guns just might be more efficient. The CIB begs for a Shas'O though, since you can't twinlink it... Though the AFB definitely calls for a shas'el.
