Spearhead: first impressions



After picking up my first White Dwarf in ages and having a good read of the Spearhead rules; I must say, I really like these rules as an option. I do think they could been written a bit more clearly. I wasn't sure if the models that are part of a Spearhead unit take up one of your force org slots; it was pretty clear that they do not according the battle report.

I hope that we are be seeing a glimpse at the squadron rules for 6th ed. Being as GW have been steadily increasing the amount of models in armies with each new edition. It would be great to have squadron rules that are not sucktastic.

Either way, I really like some of the formations a lot; with the Armored spearhead and Seek and Destroy being my favorites. Although Mechanized Assault gets an honorable mention too.

Time will tell, but I think we just found a great new addition to our games in the Man-cave!

Check out the download for the formations.

  1. I also am a fan of this new way of play. I'm looking forward to building a monstrous spearhead. 6 Wraithlords with fleet and wraithswords is going to be fun!

    @ Big Jim. I like the ones you mention, but the munchkin in me prefers the Superheavy Spearhead. Go Team Baneblade!
