Imperial Apocalypse 2
I got a nice surprise when I came home from work the other day, my copy of Imperial Apocalypse 2 had arrived. Now I know this book has been out for awhile, but I think it is worth taking an online look at it. For one thing, it doesn't add anything new for the Tyranids. It does have the rules for the new Tau Hazard suits and a formation for them. Mainly this is a book for Imperial Guard players, but it has some nice goodies for Chaos and Space Marines as well. The IG stuff is mainly a rehash of the entries from Vraks 3, and is mainly Krieg entries and super heavies. The Chaos items are similar, Vraks renegades, the new Lord of Change and the Reaver titan. The Space Marines get an assault ramp dreadnought drop pod, revised drop pod rules that follow the Codex Space Marines rules and updates for the Deathstorm drop pod. The other element of the book that's good, are the snippets of back story for the formations and unit entries. There is some good info about the Baddab War among them, as well as a neat back story for the new Lord of Change special character.
