The two wound marines are on the way and another updated boxed set has more surprises for classic marines.
All New Classic Company Command
Some items from the weapon list:
- Champion’s powersword changes to +3S D:2.
- Power Sword changes to +1S D:2. (matching what we saw in the Veteran cox)
- Chainsword changes to -1 AP (probably the new Astartes Chainsword)
- Flamer changes to 12″ range. (matching the Heavy Flamer range we saw with the Terminator box)
- Bolters change to 30″ range.
- Power Fist changes to D:2 (matching what we saw in the Terminator box)
We already had the news from Games Workshop that all Marines are moving to 2W and points are being adjusted. We knew that many pieces of equipment are being reworked, but WOW, I didn’t expect a 30″ range extension for the classic bolter.
There are several weapons that match the changes seen in other boxed sets, so it looks like these statline updates will be universal across the board. It’s going to be a whole new world out there. I’m still thinking about the implications for everything else that uses bolters… Sisters, etc…
How do you think this will affect the game?
