The Ultramarines update their arsenal in the new balance update!


“We all serve according to our courage.”

– Roboute Guilliman

Lured far away from the Imperium by the Warmaster right before the start of the Heresy, the Ultramarines haven’t stopped fighting against every enemy imaginable (and unimaginable) since the beginning of the betrayal. After fending off every obstacle the traitors have thrown at them, and having broken free of the Ruinstorm, the Sons of Guilliman finally head to Terra with renewed strength and purpose.

Meanwhile, battle rages in the capital world of the Imperium, and the Thousand Sons’ focus is more razor-sharp than ever. How will this affect the future of the Imperium?

This update brings big changes to the Ultramarines, focusing on improving the impact of their troops and the viability of some of their tactics. The Thousand Sons receive a fine-tuning of their previous rework that should improve their capacity to generate psychic energy. Check out all the changes:
