I unfortunately don't have much to offer about the new dex that BOLS has not already posted. We all knew that the leak dex was mostly fake at best. But now we have some good hard details!
Not much is different though about what I was hoping for. We still have Dante turning Vets into scoring units. We still have the fast skimmer carrying troops, but also dreads AT THE SAME TIME! We have the Dread Libby and some cool psychic powers. So exact details aside, the leak was pretty much dead on with the actual dex.
I hope that scout bikers are still in though. (I just bought a few!) I wanted an excuse to buy them any way. :) You would think they are though, they, if any other C:SM unit would fit nicely with Blood Angels.
What little inside info I do have was just an email conversation with a guy who has seen the sprues. We will call him Sam. He says they are truly beautiful, especially the winged jump packs! He did not give me much more then that and laughed when I tried to wrangle a picture out of him. Thanks Sam! We don't want to get you fired. Hopefully there will be some pics this weekend.
Be looking for Jawaballs and Fritz at Gamesday this year. It turns out there are only 20 available slots for club tables, and I think I have secured one for us. We will be doing our painting and tactical seminars like last year, a gaming table, and a really cool "special event" that shall remain unnamed until we get more details and a 100% confirmation on our table. Loot and Glory could be yours!
Also, we got the go ahead from Jwolf and BigRed to organize and run our Apocalypse event on Thursday night at BOLSCON. So be prepared! I will be leading the imperium forces vs Fritz and his Eldar Scum. This is a call to arms! I want all Blood Angels armies to converge on Austin Texas for this event. Lets show these Xenos witches the true might of the Emperor and Sanguinius. Of course, lesser chapters will be welcome to join our banner. What are we fighting? Fritz with his Saim-Hann warhost will be leading the filfthy Xenos side. While he is looking for all Eldar armies to join the fray, I'm sure they will gladly accept the help of the lesser races as pawns.
Jwolf and Bigred have offered up some prize support for this one, as well as that which Fritz and I can carry down from NY. One of the honors will be inscribing the names of the winning players on a massive trophy like the Stanly Cup! Be looking for a mini Jawa-trophy as well to be given out to the players who feed my ego the best. :) Jawashame? Whats that? :) Just playing guys!
Finally, I have not forgotten about the contest I mentioned during our last live broadcast. Be looking for more details on that soon.
EDIT: Thanks to Kuffeh for the link to the picture that I added to this post of the BA Sprue! It is the first time I saw it. Great stuff! It looks like sculpted abs for honor guard and yes I do like the wings! I don't know what this is, I am guessing a veteran or honor guard sprue? The guys that Dante can make scoring? The sculpted chapter banner is nice to. Between this and the upgrade sprue... BA are going to be drop dead beautiful. I cant wait to start painting them! Yup, Sanguinary Guard. I need to read more before posting!
