[ERROR] No.13839371 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Well fuck me, big spider things and Grey Knights and shitloads of other awesome stuff on the radar.
I swear I have never lost my will to work on an army this fast before. Just a few days ago I was all for getting my Black Templars back on track and now BOOM. Troop GK Terminators.
So yeah, to remedy that, let's try something a bit more silly and a lot more pointless that will hopefully show me that yes, making Black Templars is the better idea even if the Grey Knights will make a comeback soon.

I will make one model for every faction of 40k, and depending on what you chaps vote on, either make them nice little individual display pieces or construct a single bigass diorama out of all of them.
-Everyone gets to throw around ideas and vote on them. I'll make the ones that get the most votes.
-Name a faction, model/unit, wargear and pose.
-Vehicles are acceptable
-Only one model from each faction. All Space Marines count as a single faction.

Rynn's Might was a Land Raider of the Crimson Fists. When the Chapter's Fortress Monastery was destroyed the tank was remarkably thrown clear and survived the explosion and the impact. Operated by its Machine Spirit alone the battle tank blasted its way through every Ork patrol it could find until it encountered a full Ork warband. The Land Raider fought until its lascannons fused solid and its heavy bolters were out of ammunition and even then the tank continued to crush Orks underneath its tracks. When at last the Orks crippled the tank's tracks and brought it grinding to a halt Rynn's Might still fought on. Opening its hatches to allow the Ork Warlord and his bodyguard to enter Rynn's Might slammed its doors shut and overloaded its engines, frying the Ork Warboss and his bodyguard. Chapter Master Kantor ordered the remains of the tank carefully recorded and stationed a guard over the ruined warmachine so that in time its machine spirit could be recovered and put back to service in a new body to fight the Emperor's foes with such zeal once more.

While this sounds badass on many levels, let's try to not get too technical on the "one model" thing or someone will get creative and I'll have to accept IG Voltron made out of Forgeworld tanks as a single model.

Oh dear god another Emperor model. That'd be my... 6th I think.
Of course I wont
Holy shit that's one hardcore tank. I might have to give it a diorama of it's own one day.

For the 'one from each faction' thing, you should set them all up in a diorama with them all at each others throats.

For example, you could have an Imperial Guard Commissar or something blasting away at a charging Ork Warboss while failing to notice the Tau Stealth armour preparing to shoot him in the back.

...Who has in turn failed to notice the Space Marine scout about to shoot him first.

...Who didn't see the Eldar Ranger with a gun to the back of his head.

...Who missed the Lictor dropping down from the branches of the tree they're all standing under.

Actually, forget the Commissar and the Warboss, you should just make the whole thing a massive stealth-off between the infiltrating units of each faction.

Ah yes, I got one and made him into an IG officer
Cool, I always did want to make a Vindicare
Could work
That's a nice chunk of ideas (even if I did day only one Marine...). What do you think folks? Any secondings?
Again, could work well. I'll just need to make up my mind on what Dorn should look like.
I do have a Deceiver model somewhere so this could work well
I like it, I like it a lot!
One Marine, one Chaos marine.
I haven't looked at The Emperor's Nightmare too much, might be the colour scheme that's putting me off.
Good and orky, but again pushing it on "one model"...
Actually, why the hell not.
I agree on that, but I don't have any ideas right off the bat on how to make it better either.
Yeah I'll make another 4 Daemon Princes as a separate project, but more on that one later.
I actually got a pretty neat idea on what this could look like, with a second marine model being sort of torn out of the first one, representing the soul.

it would be a close battle, I don't think you could really call it before the battle began.

Keep in mind though that abaddon is often surrounded by Terminators and Swarmlord often has Tyrant Guard

>> No.13841621


> abaddon is often surrounded by Terminators

Doesn't matter, being an Independent Character he can be picked out in close combat. Paroxism will kick him and his squad in the dick if they're within 12", Leach Life too, possibly. It would be an interesting fight, though.

not likely, a strength 3 Ap - attack will not stop terminators. Paroxysm will fuck him up bad though

>> No.13841793


It's S3 AP2.

>> No.13841805


what i'm saying is look at the equip and powers

swarmlord on a charge gets 5 ID PW I6 that inv saves must be rerolled in sucessfully saved on with either rerolls to hit or +1 S and I(which would mean he attacks first). Has 5 wounds ws 9 and 4+ inv save and psychic powers that can reduce Initiative values.

abbobbbobbodon on a charge gets 5 s8 rerolled "wounds" at I6 (they attack at the same time) has a 5+ inv save ws 7 and is immune to ID

retinues asides swarmlord has higher ws (he'll need 3s to hit where abb needs 4s)rerolls on thos hits if wanted, but losses the wound hits battle (because he'll need 3s where abb will need 2s) also has both a psychic power and an ability to hit before abbo and has more wounds to last longer in the fight.

abbbbbbbbbbodon will not last as long in a fight vs swarmlord because of the lack of wound and rerolling hits on his part.

>> No.13841839

and like i said i wrote it mono-a-mono....guard with whips don't worry about charging my guys will hit first always and you can't pick out SWARMLORD.

also if i attack your squad I get ID on all your squad guys with swarmlord which means of abbobbobbobbodon is the only one left we won't kill SWARMLORD because SWARMLORD has 6 wounds not to mention a beefy 4+ inv and abbo will only have 5 attacks on the charge

SL has better WS and abbadan has to charge or else SWARMLORD gets an extra +1s, +1I(or rerolls to hit) and abbo is at ws1.
