BoP is when Bjorn loses the hand and comes to the attention of Russ, so perhaps they're going to do some sort of plot along the lines of Geigor getting killed at Prospero, and his fell-hand winding up in Bjorn's possession.

Nobody wolfguard champion.

FW has given rules to total noob dreadnoughts, adjutants, dead people and edgelord moritats who've gone MIA. Refusing to make 30k rules for Bjorn and dropping him into a nobody tactical marine is very, very weird.

It feels like BL wanted to make a story of how Bjorn became Bjorn from a private to the boxnought he is. And you can't start the story before the Heresy, so forget everything you thought you knew. Bjorn is now a nobody and you get to feel excited about all these other nobody characters they literally pulled out of their asses to have special characters for the various legions.

Maybe, just maybe, Greigor was the real name of Bjorn, but he changed it when he was inducted in the wolf guard. Or even when he was interred in the dreadnought.

As far as we know, Marines usually change their names when they reach higher positions in the chapter's hierarchy

>Inb4 proof.
It was stated in the 5th ed SW codex that wolf lords usually change their names when rising to the position, and in the Tankred comic the protagonist changed his name no less than two times

>> No.49780669

They're not gonna put anything that can't be used in a small scale board game into the box. Just infantry and walkers. They could make a plastic rapier kit and then use that to replace the Thunderfire cannon in 40k, so they don't have to make a plastic kit for that.

It's a bit of a shame GW wasted the MkIII on the Prospero kit when it would have been the perfect thing for a Phall box on both sides. Still, not complaining, the faster I get my plastic MkIII crack the better.

custodians can leave terra if something is deemed to threaten the safety of the emperor- besides, during the HH the emperor was alive and kicking so his bodyguards had a little more freedom.
i think in this scenario they're meant to represent the emperor in the stead of a chapter. to oversee his will be done, so to speak. how that conflicts with 'bring the 1ksons to heel' / 'burn the planet thx horus' without them saying anything is anyones guess.

Rumors of SoS have been around for a while now, this is hardly surprising.

SoB came from the Daughters of the Emperor, which were hardcore combat training nuns on some backwater planet that Vandire hired as his personal bodyguard. After the Reign of Blood they became the Ecclesiarchy's military arm. They're not really "anti-psyker".

In that SoS were formed well before the Inquisition was a thing and SoB were monitored by the Inquisition regarding their adherence to the decree passive, yes.

Replace Paragon Bolter with Master-crafted Bolter and the Master-crafted power weapon with a daemon power weapon.

Any time I've seen Indomitus in 30k it's some shitter who is just running his 40k marines as whatever legion is OP at the time.

I wouldn't care if someone got rid of the crux and just ran indomitus, but someone with that dedication will typically just get 30k models.
