There is a new Warhammer 40k miniature teaser, and we think its Fabius Bile.

Fabulous Bills New Groove

Hey everyone, it’s The Dak. I’m coming at you with some cool new teasers from Games Workshop showing off an upcoming model. Now, we don’t 100% know who this is. However, if I were a betting man, I would, of course, guess it to be Fabius Bile himself. That’s right. It looks like Fabius Bile is going to get a bit of an update, and one that was sorely needed.

So let’s take a look at what might be Fabius Biles New Warhammer 40k Miniature!

Also, he’s got a little helper

Now while there is no 100% confirmation on this. If we take a look at the pictures here, we can actually get a pretty good idea of who it is. Frankly, it’s a very distinctive look that’s pretty unique to fabulous bile so while not 100% certain. It’s pretty safe to say that this is, in fact, a new updated model for Old “fabulous bill”. Also, a new Warhammer 40k Miniature is never a bad thing.

Could this mean something more?

Now, does this mean that more stuff is coming? Does it mean we might actually see an Emperor’s Children Codex? Another Warhammer 40k miniature like an updated Lucious the Eternal? Well, we can still dream. Otherwise, we can hope to not only get an updated model but updated rules as well. Fabulous file has some interesting abilities and makes him a fun addition to a Chaos Space Marine army, but with some downsides. For one he does allow a squad to upgrade, but it’s random. So, if they managed to fix this and actually let you select what upgrade he gives a squad. I think he would be much more viable.

In addition, another thing that might be cool is if he actually got some kind of stat-line upgrade, who knows. The first chaos Space Marine to become primaris could be Bile! They’ve teased at this in the lore. Now at the least, I would expect them to maybe update his datasheet a little bit. Make it to where he can be more easily included in any army list. Maybe he won’t be able to enjoy any Legion trait bonus. Instead,  have it so the rest of the detachment won’t lose their trait.

Luckily, there is a cheap way to include him in your army. Putting Fabius in his own detachment solves this issue. So, in preparation. I have included Fabius Bile in an Army List, which I’ve created for you to try out. It’s a pretty fun one.

List Breakdown

So to start off, we have our battalion detachment. Now, this is an Emperor’s Children detachment. Mostly for fluff reasons, but also because I actually just kind of like Emperor’s children right now. So starting off we have a Chaos Lord, whose job is to support our Warp Talon bomb. Also, he can smash things with his Thunderhammer.

Warp Talon Bomb

So by giving him the specialist detachment warlord trait: the tip of the claw. It gives him and everybody around him with a jump pack, +2 to charges. That’s pretty good. Also, what we can do is use this and combine it with the special stratagem that Emperor’s children have. Where after rolling a charge roll, they can make a dice into a six. Which with the plus two means that even if you roll two ones. You can change one of them to a 6 which gives you 7 and with the +2 , you get 9. This means you made a charge! That’s a guaranteed charge from a deep strike, and that’s really cool.

The second component of the list is going to be our troop choices and our sorcerer. Now, what we’re going to do take two cheap squads of cultists to round out the battalion. Next, we’re taking a very big kitted out unit of 20 Noise Marines. To make those noise Marines better. We’re going to go ahead and spend two command points to upgrade them and give them, plus one toughness. Which gives us a toughness 5 unit with 20 people in it. All armed with sonic weapons. 

Also, We’re going to go ahead and make sure we cast delightful agonies from our sorcerer onto the unit giving us a 20 wound unit that can shoot or fight when killed, but still has a 3+ save and a 5+ FnP at T5. We have the option to buff them further with the next part of the list, which is going to be our Outrider detachment.

Biles Detachment

Now, in our Outrider detachment. That’s where we have Bile as our HQ choice and three spawns to fill out our detachment requirement. Also, Spawns are fantastic because they’re cheap and fill out the detachment for as little as 60 points. Plus, they are surprisingly decent screening units. If ignored can actually do a fair amount of damage in the combat phase.

Now, what we can do with this is we can then make our squad of noise Marines, even crazier by letting Bile give them an upgrade. Now, while random, all the upgrades we have access to from his ability are honestly all nice. The extra attack is good, the extra strength is always appreciated, and even another point of toughness would push them up to toughness six. Not a bad deal. Also, We can also use them in subsequent turns to boost our buff up anybody else that’s nearby that’s infantry such as our cultists. We can even use this on or Warp Talons if the opportunity presents itself.

Also, this is a very fun list, you have a very strong deep striking component that’s incredibly consistent. Because, the Chaos Lord, who is going to be armed with a thunder hammer will also get to reroll his charges, hit rolls and wound rolls. You also have a  giant mob of noise Marines who will be able to boost their Sonic weapons with their special stratagem and be able to fire twice with endless cacophony. All in all, a really solid list.

In Conclusion

All and all this is very exciting stuff, and the idea of Chaos Space Marines getting more updates makes me look forward to the future. Now, if they are redoing Bile, then what else to they have up their sleeves?
