I’ve played 8th for a couple of months very casually with a Death Guard I stumbled upon some Death Korps of Krieg miniatures and boy do they look cool. make also sure to get the normal Astra Mimitarum Codex from GW.
Use in combination with the Death Rider officer, above, and a few squads of Death Riders, below, to outflank an entire detachment!
The co-axial weapon is only a storm bolter though, rather than the much more logical heavy stubber, but Forgeword are bound to go derp somewhere. Against another Leman Russ, this deaath will put out 1. Punish Ultrasmurfs for their recycling command points!
The Commissars are filler. However, it is expensive: This would have clarified 1 what exactly replaces what, and 2 what category keyword that replacement stands for.

The Deathmask of Ollanius: Vortex Missile 3 CP: Plus the sword is only 4pts, try having some fun. With Memento Moris our Field Marshals are pretty badass, although unless I am mistaken it does nothing against attacks that do a set number of wounds, only ones that re-roll. He also still has Zealot, though since it’s not an AoE buff and only offers the first turn re-roll, he no longer assists with morale. Spiked helmets are famously worn by the troops of the Death Korps of Krieg; however this is in truth rarely the case in the field, but many Krieg troops maintain the tradition either with improvised spikes or, less commonly, older patterns of the spiked helmet that have survived and been passed down through families.

The heavy bolter is generally the superior choice against infantry much like the lascannon is the go to for anything with high toughness and multi wound. Need some extra firepower to support your infantry line? Min is 5 ruled as written, a Grenadier Weapons Team doesn’t take up two slots in the vehicles.
Select a AM Vehicle in your army, that vehicle can’t korrp, charge or pile in this turn but immediately heals 1 wound. The generic artifacts and stratagems can be used with them and maybe we will get lucky and get our own too.
Krieg in 8th edition… the unique units
However, it’s far more cost efficient at that point to just buy more soldiers with your points – you have no units valuable enough for Uriah to earn his cost back this way. Still, with base 2A and Zealot, these guys can easily overwhelm their points in MEQs on the charge, and they love taking Priests with them. Take this guy for his kreg ability; that way, you’re pleasantly surprised if the artillery strike does something instead of basing your strategy around such an unreliable, one-use attack.
The Loyalists slowly re-took their blasted world in the name of the Emperor over fifteen generations of terrible bloody attrition — trench-by-trench and tunnel-by-tunnel — with bayonet, brutality and when needed, atomic fire. You might need to bring a couple along anyway though since you can’t take heavy coex in your regular infantry squads. Unfortunately specifies Chimera only, so no Stormlord or Macharius command vehicles for you.
But the Kriegers quickly run out of steam – Hades Drills and engineers die, and the bulk of enemy army comes too close. Unfortunately, RAW says they can’t ride in a Leman Russ Mars Alpha, but if you’re not at a tournament, who’s going to tell you otherwise?

Yes, the 2nd edition one Valid for 7th and 40k approved? I don’t like heavy weapons because 2 shotguns are better than either heavy flamers or mole mortars and unlike Guard HWTs, they don’t get to keep even 1 shotgun.
Officio Prefectus Command Tanks cost CP and aren’t Character s unless you detah a Tank Commander but even then he has more than 10 wounds, so moot point anywayso they tend to last less despite being a damn tank. The bolters deliver a lower average hit count 3 instead of 7 but are much cheaper and have more than four times the range of the flamers.
The ground attack beast rocks on in 8th edition.
