WEll I hope so, I have already DL'd it to my PC. Total BS this digi only but we'll see.
Wait, what? How did you already download it?
The eBook edition is a ePub. There should be multiple readers available for it.
Additionally, I took a read-through of the licensing on the eBook version. You are allowed to make a printout of it for your own use. I'll probably make a trip out to a printer and get a nice copy made for myself later. To me, a digital copy is >> the WD situation.
From what I've heard, there are few HQ choices that are considered valid, so it would be nice to see that fixed. It would also be good to see a little bit more variety in their HS options, from what I recall.
The problem with the HQ choices is that all of the generic models are rather expensive for what you get and what they unlock is not worth paying points for anyway. The unique HQs were cheaper than similarly-equipped generics (and Celestine is Jump Infantry, which the generics can't
do), and got awesome special rules.
Here's a quick example:
Celestine: 115pts, comes with a jump pack, Tzeentch Terminator saves, and a poisoned power sword. Then you look at her Lucky #7 statline and the attack #s that make a SM Captain blush. She out-swings, out-tanks, and out moves a SM Captain (new codex) for not much more. To get close to her, the Cannoness is only 15pts cheaper and has a 'meh' statline. And it's the low T stat that makes Celestine shine, as pretty much everything but small-arms fire will make the multiple wounds worthless.
Everything in the HS (except for the Exorcist) slots has a large weakness: It's not an Exorcist. Their Devastator equivs have a choice between HBs or MMs. Yes, rending HBs is sexy, but you'll probably get screwed on the Acts roll.
Looks like the Cannonness is now cheaper (with Rosarius) as a SM Captain (who comes with an Iron Halo). So not complete BS. Still no jump pack.
The sgt tax became optional but doubled from the WD codex.
I'm sure that everything in their Elites slots will still fail and that Pentitent Engines will break when something looks at them funny. I hope that taking priests is worth doing and that the Faith Point rules got fixed so they work in games > 1500 pts.
If Eviscerators are on the Melee weapon list, I'm seeing those getting put everywhere.
I might be able to properly do a footslogging Sisters list now that isn't celestine+2 exorcists+seraphim. That would be nice.
Also, I'll see if Calibre's built-in ePub reader will work with it when I get my copy.
