To be fair, the Cerastus did have a publication with its rules, Horus Heresy Book 3. So it does have a book, just not a strictly 40k one.Da Skyman wrote:Humph.

So I guess you only get 40k approved rules right out of the gate on a model by model basis. The R'varna apparently has to wait for some other book before it will actually be legal.
What about Fusion Cascades? I had a team of 3 XV-9's kill a Baneblade outright. They are expensive but they have a higher rate of fire than a Fusion Blaster (most of the time). A pair of them might actually kill it if you gave them some MLS, though that is over 200 points in XV9
Fusion Cascades are generally a bad buy, but now that heavy vehicles will start showing up again...
Just need them to make FW legal for FSE.
In regards to unit availability for FSE, I was fairly certain the new rulebook established a relationship between codices and supplements that supported FW models. I haven't my rulebook with me at work, but the army selection section has pseudo-definitions of those terms.
