  • Secundum

    BLUD REHVENS!
    WE KNOW AR DO EET AND WE WILL DUTEH!
    WHO WUD BE SO BALD AND SO FEWLISH!?
    WE ARE TEH SPHESS MEHRENES!
    WE ARE TEH EMPRAHS FUREH!

  • Emprah

    Blood Ravens are great. No Chaos yet is bad.

    • Paul Allen

      Yes and no. Chaos not playable would be bad. But lets get another damn enemy other than them for the story mode.

      • Erber

        It was really refreshing in DoWII that they kept chaos for the first expansion pack. It is tiring that chaos in some form or the orks generally are the go-to enemy for every 40k video game…

  • pokemastercube .

    lightning hammer……..it’s called a THUNDER hammer

    • georgelabour

      What if it’s a relic weapon that’s the thunder hammer known as lightning hammer?

      or maybe a lightning hammer pattern thunder hammer!

      • Scott Guise (Shrew8541)

        Heresy 😉

  • Drpx

    So they reused Winter Assault’s plot. Also, did Biel-tan grab Necron tech?

    • matt

      I believe necrons are in this, the opening quote for the trailer is in the necron codex and it is referencing them specifically.

      • Pedro Portela

        I didn’t buy the latest necron codex yet, the quote in the entire trailer is from the Necron Codex?

        • matt

          I think it was an older codex, not the current one. Also it’s on the Necron wiki page.

  • Erber

    The Ork super unit will likely be a stompa, and the Eldar will have a wraithknight. Anything else would greatly surprise me (in a positive way, I like surprises :D) but these feel like very obvious choices on par with an imperial knight.

    • SIA

      Didn’t they say orks got a gorkanuaght, how ever that’s spelled?

      • Erber

        interesting

      • georgelabour

        They mentioned gorkanaughts and wraithknights as being the equivalent unit to imperial knights.

        The article from the magazine says they’ll all get a secret super unit that they can’t reveal which would mean that those three are not the secret snowflake unit in question.

  • Sir Astartes

    You can call me by my real name, Valrak 😛 but thanks for showing my video 🙂

    • Scott Guise (Shrew8541)

      What issue is this?

      • Sir Astartes

        Issue 292

        • Scott Guise (Shrew8541)

          I am guessing that must be in the UK or something? I am not seeing it here at all in the US. and I believe we are in the 270s.

          • Sir Astartes

            Must be a UK thing then.

  • georgelabour

    A little dissapointed that Imperial Knights are just the equivalent of Space Marine baneblades in this installment but I can see where they just don’t have any other place in an RTS game.

    Plus we already have freeblade for our grim dark mecha action.

  • Scott Guise (Shrew8541)

    When did this magazine issue come out or is it out yet?

  • Scott Guise (Shrew8541)

    When did this issue of the magazine come out?

  • Haighus

    So… Gabriel Angelos is in the game, which would imply that the Space Marine ending is the canon ending of DoW II Retribution, as if this is set after that game, he must survive. Finally got confirmation! Sort of.

    • Haighus

      Wait… having looked at the video above, it has a timeline of Gabriel Angelos’ career. The last entry is, as far as I can tell: ‘Fights the powerful Chaos daemon he woke up earlier. Loses.’ This could be referring to how he gets crippled and Apollo Diomedes finishes the job though.

  • tenshiou

    is it just me or space marines are slimmer now?
