  9. Very interesting. How did you get the book so early without an NDA?

  10. As a volunteer we sometimes get pre-releases before street date. I was fortunate enough that mine came in the mail a day earlier than expected.

  11. What is the cost of the min unit of invictors, you have it at 10.

  12. Tx for the spoilers.

    Can you confirm that Rahn and Ravyn’s feats affects all friendly models or just faction models?


  13. Thanks a ton mate!

    If you have the time later on I’d appreciate more stats on modells we don’t have. I assume the mkI model stats are roughly similar?

    • Yep the ones in MK2 are very similar to MK1. Only difference I really see is their cost.

  14. Costs for the Dawnguard Sentinel UA and Dawnguard Invictors Unit for minimum cost seem to be wrong.

  15. Mini Ivictors are 6 points.

  16. Fixed some typos in the point costs.

  17. Just realized I misread something.

    AD, Fearless, Stealth, Souless, Arcane Annihilation (when it is destroyed by an enemy model, enemy models within 8″ lose focus and fury points and cannot cast spells, channel or use animi), Spell Ward. Magic Weapon, Reach.

  18. that changes Nayl a bit.

    • Indeed — not quite as sick as he first sounded.. makes him fun for denial too.. nobody’s gonna want to pop him near a caster.. forces them to move and go places you want them to.. mixed in with the Manticores and their area templates etc Retrib seems to be very much about controlling the flow of the battle

  19. Many thanks so far!

    Just a few specific questions:
    -Does Arcanist really cost only 1 point?
    -Is Force Hammer spell on Rahn really just like Thunderstrike on Caine, but POW12; it probably is then cheaper (and therefore better) also?
    -How does Vortex of Destruction on Ravyn really work?

  20. The battle mages confuse me. Are they decent Mat and P+S for melée? Also, what’s with Rahn’s feat? Only magic attacks, so he and other battle mages have a benefit? I’m not seeing the synergy, but maybe it’s great for him, alone.
