Yup, which is where my moaning comes from. :D

Well you're just going to have to do what the rest of us* do.

Splurge all your cash and lie to yourself that next month you won't buy anything.

Rules preview for the new Tech-priest Manipulus, the chubby fella with the big gun. He looks interesting - a very short-ranged, very powerful weapon (less a problem in KT than in 40K) balanced with a 2+/5++ save and healing D3 wounds per turn (both of which are, again, very juicy in KT). Plus, of course, he looks cool.

The new tactic in the box that lets you remove D3 flesh wounds from an AdMech model for 1 CP is also verra nice.

Looks like the Ambull and some other alien critters are up for pre-order in the near future.

Do love that Ambull. Great re-boot of an oldie but goodie. My buddy had an Ambull figure back in the day, and it always made it into our annual, big-all-day-multi-player extravaganzas. Once he made a little dog-house with "Bully" written on it. The first figure to get too close and, Ambull Attack!
Enslavers would be cool. Could do them all spooky and wispy like those new Shadespire undead.

Yes! I wonder how far into the lore they're prepared to dig?

To about the same depth they are willing to dig into your wallet I would guess.

I'm crossing my fingers for Zoats - which, IIRC, have actually appeared (in the sense that some got brutally murdered by Deathwatch) in sidebar fiction somewhere in modern 40K.

This will not mean much to those of you who haven't played Blackstone, but here's the Ambull's card:

He's a brutal MF-er and no lie. I can only hope that the "or other hostile" thing in his weapon description means he just runs amok and attacks other hostiles in addition to explorers.
