Chris Wraight working on book on Leman Russ and Space Wolves during the Heresy. Involving one or maybe more Primarchs. Including some hes not got on with......
Graham McNeill is nearly done with Crimson King! Also working on more Magnus based stories.
Russ will get an axe and a sword.
Custodians are their own elite force, not like Space Marines 2.0! The Emperor saved the Custodes the best toys so look forward to heavy master weaponry. It's a highly lethal mobile force. They were designed to kill Space Marines if something goes wrong. 100% loyal to the Emperor, even beyond free will.
Playtest - 5 Custodians against 20 Tactical Marines, none of the Tacs were alive to fight back in combat!!! Not the full rules im sure - again, it's still playtesting.
Custodes will not have Rhinos and Land Raiders they will have their own vehicle types though and no heavy support but they will have an equivalent
Rules will come for Spireguard, possibly not models though. Might be a variant to the Solar Auxilia models.
Space Wolf Characters unconfirmed apart from Leman Russ, Freki and Geri.
Thousand Sons have a plan in their playstyle, not fully confirmed, still playtesting, be less of them, not usually in attritional warfare. Possibility of picking your option for Psyker-yness, that may improve equipment/weapons.
Tutilaries/Familiars will have above listing type (equipment/weapons).
Sisters of Silence will be a small allies list - not a "full force".
Sisters of Silence almost like Assassins hunting down all psykers.
During Heresy there will be limitation on unit types (they did not have access to certain things around this time) for Space Wolves, as their way of war gives them limitation to certain things. BUT! Space Wolves will have their own bespoke consuls and unit types!
Possible stories furthering the Thousand Sons that weren't on Prospero.
Space Wolves attack Arkhadia (Mechanicum world) - part of the campaigns in Inferno. This Mechanicum planet is targeted as he is associating with Magnus.
Arkhadine Mechanicum will have their own unique weapon and unit types, thanks to the help from Thousand Sons. This Cybernetica based Forgeworld will have its own Titan legion and it will have technology encouraged by the psychic aspects of the thousand sons. Which is why there will be multiple Titan Legion rules as there will be Legions sent to deal with them in Inferno.
Legio Mortis and a new type of Titan Legio (for Arcadia) but thats secret for now.
The seminar is over - what do you guys think so far about Inferno? Write in the comments below! :)
