The guy who wrote the big long-winded defense of the game basically outlined everything you need to know when deciding if you want to play KT. If you're interested in putting together a proper 20 model roster and playing at a somewhat competitive level the game is perfectly serviceable. If you're looking for something casual were you can just pick up a single box of dudes and play you are going to be disappointed (unless you're playing one of the 2-3 factions that can play reasonably well out of a single box, which Guard are most certainly not).

Fourth War for Armageddon when? What with orks returning and now chaos back in the mix when are we returning to the hell hole? Plus GW could use this opportunity to push out some plastic steel legion.

What would be a good idea for a Steel Legion Kill Team?

I want to be fluffy as possible.

>Space Marines are great because they are lab experiments that have a high failure rate
By this logic Wracks, Grotesques, and Pain Engines are Gods compared to Space Marines.

>>51656179
Pretending "sneaking behind enemy lines" = subtlest form of infiltration. As I said, Space Marines are a garbage version of Eldar at infiltration, but they do employ it. Space Marines are not heroes. They are highly mind-washed war experiments that not only undergo physical alterations, but mental ones. They are no more brave or heroic than Dark Eldar Wracks. A standard guardsman faces the universe as a real man. Knock them all you want but guardsmen are the real heroes of the Imperium.

Does anyone remember seeing any reference to the 1st Armageddon Steel Legion anywhere in any of the stuff GW has published.

I'm working on a regiment (via Only War and some other stuff though if I do decide to start a guard army in 40k it'd be them) that for reasons would be one of the very first regiments founded and while debating what number to assign it and looking through the wiki I realized I could just make them the first which would totally rock with the fluff I have for them.

>The Uplifting Primer is in-universe bullcrap. Almost none of it is true.

I am aware but I figured the "how rank works" section would be more accurate than most anything else. After all when it says you'll get your ass shot if you disagree with any order from anybody outranking you it absolutely IS telling the truth.

8. what do you call someone from Armageddon? An Armagedian?


Aside from loader is there any reason ratlings couldn't serve in tank crews?

My writefaggotry features an IG unit that was formed from unit leftovers at the end of a major campaign specifically a leman russ squadron (formerly of the armageddon steel legion) that lost a bit over 2 tanks worth of crewmen due to chemical weapons and has since replaced about 1/3rd to 2/5ths of their losses with ratlings.

>atm instead of portraying them as lazy mexican steriotypes all but one of my ratlings have ridiculous french accents and act like they're proud soldiers of le Grande Armee! Vive l'Emperer!
>the remaining ratling is the sole survivor of a ratling unit from a different planet and is every bit the lazy mexican

They had come from all across the Imperium, from worlds as different as night and day, but they were utterly unified in purpose.

They would turn back the greenskin threat. They would protect Holy Terra.

They would safeguard the destiny of mankind as the supreme race in the galaxy.

Can we talk about the videogame Armageddon, /tg/? I'm actually enjoying it a lot despite its faults, but I've gotten to a point in the game where I can't seem to win, and I'm not about to cheat and turn the difficulty down.

All who fight in the Emperor's name are blessed.

Those who die in his service are honoured.

Those who win victory for him are immortal at his side.

Easy way around this is to pass the player onto another nearby squad member until all of them are dead.

Would it be better to drop a Special weapon squad from each platoon and invest in Artillery? I was thinking of blob guard but Artillery may work better (allow for creeping-barrage tactics)
