i like the idea of movement trays especially with a lot of men, its whether that makes setting up to quick, might make it a tad easy if that makes sense, definitely an idea I like though. Also about the psykers I just thought it means you can make a physic choir a very dangerous tool very easily, which in some ways I like as it makes them a very secure unit and you can use them in different ways but I like the randomness of rolling for powers purely because it makes you have to think about playing them differently to what you wanted which to me is more apocalypsey because a commander would need to adjust strategy to how his enemy is playing.

we need different table deployment so my artillery can use its 20 ft range without getting shot at!

fortifications would be cool if one side had the big ones but the other could only have small ones and set the tables up as a massive assault on a city of something, it probably wont be a popular idea but it gives another dynamic to the game.

While this is not official yet, we will most likely allow fortifications from the GW rulebooks.

Nice model... also picked up an aquilla cannon, and some of those battle cannon turrets, and a fortress of redemption :) :) :) but the big bonus is the new december book... supposed to be a book of siege rules and fortifications. Very nice...

It would seem. My local GW guys were bursting with excitement on it, and it seemed fairly genuine.

I am looking at adding the Tempestus Firebase to my collection, providing I can scrounge up the scratch for it. That would give me a second Aquila strongpoint, as well as some firestorms and vengence batteries. Would make for an impressive base for Apoc.

so no FW fortifications? I would probably add a couple of the Necron bases to my army.

Sounds like they are considering fortifications... I would guess that means all. Which will be interesting as those massive fortifications have AV15. That would be far tougher than a planetary defense laser at AV14.

And with the bunker troops can shelter inside and sally forth when coming in from reserve... a great way for some IG to walk on from somewhere other than a board edge.

They did seem okay with the fortress walls idea from IA. Unless you are talking about the realm of battle piece. That could be tricky, as it is a large piece that is placed on the table..
