40K Rumors: Blue is the new Pink, Horrors that is

Blue Horrors are back in 40K, after being lost in the warp for years. For those of you don’t remember, there was a time when a Pink Horror would split into 2 Blue Horrors upon it’s death. GW, strong with nostalgia, has brough this phenomena back, and upped the ante to boot.

Now, not only do Pink Horrors split into 2 blue horrors upon their death, but Blue Horrors now split upon their demise as well. Replace each slain Blue Horror with a Brimstone Horror base (2 models, 1 base.)

Brimstone Horrors were introduced into the Warhammer Universe earlier this year when they were included in the Silver Tower Boardgame. At the moment, Silver Tower is the only official channel to aquire Brimstone Horrors. Rest assured, GW will capitalise on this and release them in their own box shortly.

99120104041_sceldar01

For $85US you’ll get a Farseer Skyrunner, a Fire Prism, and 3 Windriders. It’s definitely more competitive than the old Eldar Battleforce, and a good buy if you want to buy mulitples

The Special Formation for this Start Collecting box it the Eldar Runeweaver Host.

 Eldar Runeweaver Host

  • 1 Farseer
  • 1 unit of Windriders
  • 1 Fire Prism

Restrictions: The Farseer must be upgraded to a Farseer Skyrunner

Special Rules: Weaver of Runes: The Fire Prism’s weapons all have the Twin-Linked special rule when targeting an enemy unit that the Runeweaver Host’s Farseer has a line of sight to.

Munitorum Armored Container Cache

 

Each container rolls in at 40pts and has Storm Bolters, the ammo dump upgrade, and the Promethium rules that popped up in the Promethium Pipeline.

A boy, some cardboard, and a desire to make something Orks could use to get across the battlefield

and more thin card

Fold and glue that card into something shaped vaguely like Optimus Prime

Forget the enclosed back section, as it would prevent the boyz from firing their guns wildly everywhere

Driver section should probably be enclosed

Something along the lines of a Garbage Truck

Too much open space up front

Divider creates windowed sections

Side doors would probably help as well

Some reinforcements along the back also add more texture
