Games Workshop Previews Fire Prism Updates for 40k

Anyone else remember when the Fire Prism was the hot, new thing in the Aeldari (then Eldar) tank garage? I do. It's come a long way since then. And it's going further with some updates in the new codex coming to pre-order this weekend. Get a look at the changes in this preview.

From the article:

The new Codex: Aeldari is available for pre-order this weekend and we’re super excited. We can’t wait to unleash the new Avatar, updated Guardians, and Maugan Ra upon the tabletop. Space Marines, however, won’t be quite so keen, as the trusty Fire Prism is now precision-focused on melting its way through power armour.

Based on the Falcon chassis, the Fire Prism swaps transport capacity for firepower. The Aeldari engineers have clearly been hard at work, because the prism cannon is now deadlier than ever before, and its dispersed pulse fire mode seems to have been designed specifically to kill Space Marines.

Its Strength makes a mockery of a Space Marine’s supposedly superhuman Toughness, that Armour Penetration will blast through their much-vaunted power armour, and Damage 2 kills regular Space Marines stone dead.* With the Blast rule, it’s also great for chewing your way through any of those pesky horde armies too.
