Shield of Baal: Why I'm Excited

I am excited about this new campaign. Not because I like blood angels or nids, that pic above gets me excited. I know that is specifically a novel, but what it hints at for at least the first part of the campaign is something that gives me hope.
From everything that has been leaked so far the first part of the campaign is going to involve nids, sisters, and looks to be tempestus. The above is a novel, but, but but, it hints at what the actual campaign will include.

I am really hoping for some expanded rules for the tempestus. A special character would be great, but prob too much to ask for. The best I can hope for is prob a formation. Will be really interesting to see what is in the book. Who knows sisters may get a bit of love too, I really hope so.

Either way this could be a really good release and I am excited to see what rules are in the book. Here's hoping.

sorry if there errors, I typed this on my phone so can only do so much.

  1. Games workshop has some new "one click" tempestus bundles up: airborne, and a ground assault style bundles. It doesn't offer as deep a discount as the previous tempestus bundle, but it does give some hope to GW giving tempestus some attention. It's also worth noting that neither bundle has sufficient units included to make the formations from the codex, but it's nice to see.

  2. A special commander, or tempestor prime, with some nifty rules would be welcome. Even something small like scout or outflank would be good for ground troops. Throw the special guy in a transport with auger arrray and have some possible turn 2 devastation.

    1. I would love infiltrate, getting a way to reliably get that for scions would be really nice.

  3. Looking at the video teaser for the Shield of Baal, there will probably be formations for sisters, guard and tempestus. Also cool new city fight rules and new missions. As well as whatever the fighter aces are...

  4. I thought that the campaign was going to involve Astra Militarum, Tempestus, and Sisters vs Tyranids? Correct me if I am wrong. I am hoping for an AM and Tempestus formation!!!! That would make me happy about all of the love the Tyranids have gotten since their crappy codex!

    1. I've heard AM and MT and I've heard just MT, so we'll see. The later stuff I have seen have only mentioned MT so the first AM rumors may have been confusing the scions as part of a larger AM force rather than just on their own. Either way some good lovin is coming our way.
