What is this?
« on: September 14, 2014, 03:46:11 PM »
Is this book worth it? Why? I have a bunch of karskin warriors and nothing to do with them. I dont even want to buy the new GK book, and codex IQ is weak sauce. How am I gonna use these guys. I dont want another IG army because of cost. But maybe tempestus has something?
So many books, so many Burning questions.

They might make good counts as Inquisitorial Stormtroopers and they have special orders that aren't available to the ones in the regular Imperial Guard  book(AM). Each order can give them one of the following, Twin-linked, Preferred enemy, Sniper & pinning(only one shot tho), Crusader, fleet, or rending if their shooting at vehicles or monstrous creatures. Also a couple Formations and Warlord Table, not Relics tho. One of the Formations is a Commisar, command squad, 3 units and 4 Valkeries, they all come on together from reserves and when they deploy from the Valkeries each unit gets Twin-linked and split fire. The other formations is pretty similar they just all come in Tourox primes, same bonus rules.

Is it worth it, IDK, theres not many rules but the fluff is kinda cool and they could make a good fit for some themed forces.

This is a small codex,as see it to be used as allied factions or to combine with allies. In case you are interested I did a video review:

I take it by lack of responses that not a lot of people play them. I've been looking at them with the maelstrom missions in mind and think that they would do well with them. It seems the codex was written with 7th edition in mind.

Yeah, it's the same situation in my area as well: no one plays dedicated Tempestus. Which is a shame really because it could be really awesome.
