Jan 4, 2017

Time for another leak and rumor complication this time for Gathering Storm: Fall of Cadia rumors and leaks. As with the other compilations the Gathering Storm: Fall of Cadia will feature both Games Workshop community info and any other Internet leaks and rumors as they come!

Check back every so often as new leaks and rumors for Gathering Storm: Fall of Cadia will be added as they come, without notification.

Formation and Relic rules:

Conclave Acquisitorius (Formation)
Belisarius Cawl, 1-2 Battle Maniples or 1 War Cohort, 1 Holy Requistioner, 0-1 Cohort Cybernetica, 0-1 Numinous Conclave, 1-2 Imperial Knights or 1 Baronial Court
Everything gets Canticles of the Omnissiah
Each Character may upgrade one of their weapons (except relics) to have Master-Crafted
If the formation has the maximum number of units, everything gets Doctrina Imperitives

Wrathful Crusade (Formation)
Celestine, Inquisitor Greyfax, 1 Space Marine Captain, 0-1 Sternguard, 2-4 Crusader Squads, 1-2 Assault Squads, 1 Militarum Tempestus Platoon.  All Space Marine must have Black Templar Chapter Tactics
Everything gets Crusader
If the formation has the max number of units, everyone gets Zealot
All units can re-roll failed Charge rolls.  If you roll 10 or more for your charge range, you get Furious Charge.

Grand Convocation Detachment:
Units can be drawn from Codex Astra Militarum, Cult Mechanicus, Imperial Agents, Imperial Knights or Skitarii.  The available units are restricted to mainly the ones from Codex: Skitarii, Cult Mechanicus and Imperial Knights though.  Enginseers are the only Guard unit you can take.  You also must also include units from at least two different factions.
HQ: 2-4, Troops: 4+, Elites: 0-6, Fast Attack: 0-6, Heavy Support: 0-6, LoW: 0-3
All Vehicles get It Will Not Die.  If they are within 12″ of any HQ from the detachment, they also get Power of the Machine Spirit
If the formation hast the max number of units (except troops, since you can take unlimited lol…) then everything gets Canticles of the Omnissiah
Warlord can re-roll Warlord Trait

Castellans of the Imperium Detachment
Units can be drawn from basically any Army of Imperium codex and their supplements.  There’s literally big lists of units you can take for each slot, which at a quick glance seems to basically include everything besides unique characters (aside from Black Templar, Adepta Sororitas and Inquisition unique characters though, which can be taken.  Pask and Yarrick too).  Interestingly enough, Codex: Inquisition and Codex: Adepta Sororitas are listed alongside Codex: Imperial Agents as available sources.  That should clear that debate right up.  You also must also include units from at least two different factions. Edit: Blood Angel, Dark Angel, Space Wolves, Grey Knights, Death Watch, Cult Mechanics, Skitarii, Sisters of Silence, Adeptus Custodes and Legion of the Damned are not available in the Castellans of the Imperium Detachment.  I’m pretty most everything else, including Assassins and Cataphractii/Contempors, are though.  Lord of War options are Imperial Knights (specifically the ones from Codex: Imperial Knights) and Baneblade variants.
HQ: 2-4, Troops: 4+, Elites: 0-6, Fast Attack: 0-6, Heavy Support: 0-6, LoW: 0-3
All units get Hatred.  If you have the max number of units, except troops, everyone gets Zealot
Each time a Troops Choice is destroyed, roll a d6.  On a 5+ an identical unit immediately goes into Ongoing Reserve, and counts as a unit from this detachment (so it can potentially be recycled again later)
Warlord can re-roll Warlord Trait
Edit: Blood Angel, Dark Angel, Space Wolves, Grey Knights, Death Watch, Cult Mechanicus, Skitarii, Sisters of Silence, Adeptus Custodes and Legion of the Damned are not available in the Castellans of the Imperium Detachment.  Didn’t notice that…  I’m pretty most everything else, including Assassins and Cataphractii/Contempors, are though.  Lord of War options are Imperial Knights (specifically the ones from Codex: Imperial Knights) and Baneblade variants.

-Hints from White Dwarf Battle Report

Greyfax is a level 2 Psyker who knows powers from Telepathy.
Greyfax has a unique power (looks to be a Malediction) called “Aura of Oppression” that can apparently “neutralize” nearby units. I’m guessing it either messes with the opposing unit’s stats, or keeps them from acting for a turn.
It looks like Trazyn is probable getting some kind of update that lets him be taken on his own as an ally (though the Forces of the Imperium still don’t trust him) and lets him release models from the Tesseract Labrynths. Deploying this way is refered to as coming in from “Tesseract Reserve” in the BatRep and lets a squad of Ogryns pop up in the Chaos back lines.
Cawl’s Canticles boost Admech units and Imperial vehicles. I’m guessing the limits of his boosting allies is through their vehicles then.
Cawl’s “War Hymn of Fortitude” gives all vehicles in 12″ of him a 5++.
Celestine’s arrival auto-rallied the fleeing units of the Imperial side. Looks to be some sort of special rule or warlord trait.
Cawl regained wound(s) on his own. IWND?
Celestine can still come back after dying, but as she never died in the BatRep the way this rule works wasn’t mentioned.

Book will actually feature most if not all Ad Mech units from Skitarii and Cult.
The Big AdMech formation that includes a Knight, one of the Bonuses is weapons lose “Gets Hot” This may well be the War Convocation from the old WD.
Trazyn is indeed in the book, and he’s an ally to Imperials.

 The Eye of Terror is about to open and unleash a tide of darkness, Daemons and traitors into an already beset Imperium. Against the unified might of the Traitor Legions stand the heroes of the Cadian Gate, who will stop at nothing to drive back the Gathering Storm.

The scene is set for the most epic narrative in the history of the 41st Millennium – a fitting celebration of 30 years of Warhammer 40,000 and a great way to kick off the next 30 years of grim darkness in the far future.

The Gathering Storm begins with the epic events detailed in the Fall of Cadia – available for pre-order on January 7th.

The miniatures accompanying the first Gathering Storm book represent a few of the factions that stand against the Legions of Chaos, including: our first plastic Inquisitor miniature, the huge and hunched form of an ancient Archmagos Dominus, and the angelic Saint Celestine, resurrected (or possibly, saved from the dust bin) leading the Imperium’s armies.
