Games Workshop Previews Vanguard Spearhead for 40k

The upcoming Warhammer 40,000 Seasons book brings you a lot of supplements for the forces already in the game. In this preview, we get a look at the Vanguard Spearhead army of renown. See just what this new force is capable of in this preview.

From the article:

Warhammer 40,000 Seasons are almost upon us, and the action kicks off with an epic new book. War Zone Nachmund: Vigilus Alone focuses on the ongoing war for the beleaguered planet, which is possibly the most strategically important location in the 41st Millennium aside from Terra itself. Today, we’ll show you one of the coolest bits of the new book – the Vanguard Spearhead. 

War Zone Nachmund: Vigilus Alone is packed with awesome stuff, like the Order of the Bloody Rose codex supplement for the Adepta Sororitas. But if you prefer your loyalist warriors protected by Phobos-pattern power armour, you’re in luck.

The Vanguard Spearhead is an Army of Renown that plays a bit differently than your typical Space Marine army. They’re recruited from the Scout Company, with the express goal of penetrating deep into enemy territory, sabotaging supplies, causing mayhem, and assassinating high-priority targets. As such, they don’t use the usual Chapter Tactics – instead, Vigilus Alone gives them their own unique set of rules to represent their training and strategies.
