FTN Episode 468 – World Eaters Will Take a Huge Bite Out of The Meta
Eightbound will be the story of this codex at the moment. They are positioned to get up close and personal with a lot of armies. Some won’t be able to handle it. This is good though… if the game is too shooty its one dimensional. Will this codex push it too far the other way?
Please consider grabbing an FTN T-shirt to help us celebrate the shows anniversary. The link can be found here. Proceeds will go to doing something nice for cast members of the show. The sticker is cool too and has been on my laptop for a year.
We kick the show off talking about Blood Tithe Points – the BTPs are an interesting mechanic that gives you options. Do you save for a rainy day or do you burn them as soon as you get them? You can basically spend them as soon as you get them and they seem to come to you quite plentifully. Khorne cares not from where the blood flows. You can almost create your army in a way that funnels BTPs to yourself.
The big stand outs in the Codex are the Eightbound. They will shine pound for pound more than terminators, I think. Terminators are still great though! We might find ourselves in a world where that extra save really matters over the aggressiveness of the Eightbound but I don’t think we’re there yet.
This army doesn’t have any jump packs but it is still FAST. There are pre-game moves and extra movement bonuses and ways to improve charge rolls and all the good stuff you might expect from an army that is renowned for doing one thing well – getting into combat.
It feels ‘nice’ in a way that makes sense but not overly pushed or forced into the codex. You can look at the models, look at the lore and just kinda smile and nod – that’s a hallmark of good design.
