We run down the Gathering Storm book and give our impressions on the power characters – Belisarius Cawl and St. Celestine.
The Imperium gets to add a few incredibly powerful characters and formations to the soup this week. There is almost 100 pages of backstory and epic moments before you see your first rule in this book. I highly suggest you get it if you a collector of the stories and especially if you’re an Imperial player.
We cover all three of the new characters in this episode but the two stand outs are Cawl and Celestine. These guys are incredibly durable with no compromise to their offensive output. Cawl comes to the table with 5 wounds and Celestine weighs in with an impressive effective 9 (NINE) wounds at the start of the game.
Both of these characters have a way to renew their wound pool as the game goes on. Your opponent absolutely has to dedicate a tremendous amount of firepower to knock these guys out. They also fit right in to the brand new super formations in this book. The “Imperial Soup” gets real with all of the forces of the Imperium allowed to be combined in great formations. Dust off your Coteaz figures, he is back to being a stud.
The Finishing Moves segment is sponsored by Gamemat.eu. Their Industrial Terrain set is great and they offer a product that is pre-painted. This, combined with their mats, is a great way to get playing with professional looking game boards fast.
This segment is all about the pox, buboes and sores that a lot of figures have. You can also use it for fresher wounds or scars for the less that nurgly figures.
