Deathwatch Special Issue Ammunition Selector: Bolt Carbines and Stalker Bolt Rifles

After nearly 2 months of uninterrupted work, I'm back to having a scrap of time to blog. Happily nothing much happened in the world of Games Workshop whilst I was away, right? Right?

I'm sure I'll catch up. This is a handy cheat sheet I've been sitting on since... May. Wow. I have been gone a while.

You think the carbine and Stalker Bolt rifle would be complex in their ammunition choices, or at least as complex as the Bolt Rifle or standard issue Bolter. Nope.

They're so easy to pick between, you can fit all the options for both weapons on one page.

Whilst the Carbine/Auto bolt rifle has a little bit more nuance to it, the introduction of a base AP-2 really reduces the effect of Kraken and Vengeance for the Stalker. However, unless you're desperate for a bolter that can plink awa at everything on the battlefield, I'd recommend skipping the Stalker. It doesn't do as much work as your other choices, and its real niche is turning your Intercessors into backfield objective holders.

To be honest, that's a niche which needed to be filled in the Deathwatch lineup, lacking in Scout snipers as they are. Intercessors with their 2 wounds and attacks are also a bit more resilient to sneaky assault units than Scouts, so they certainly have a use.

Right, now that's up and posted I can read up on what's been happening in the table top world. Let's just have a quick look on Warhammer Community. Oh hey, new Age of Sigmar stuff! Kill team? Adeptus Titanicus?!

Until next time...
