5 monkeys per unit is overkill. 2-3 is all you need, mixed in with a bunch of special weapon wielding warrior acolytes. Guard pay 15 points for a plasmagun, warrior acolytes have the same BS and pay only 10 points.

The way I read it here's what happens

1. roll on table. Automatically get six.
2. reroll on table. Automatically get six twice, but one has already been rolled so the second one can only be bumped up as far as a five.
3. Reroll on the table for the 6 in step two. 5 and 6 have already been taken, the die can therefore only be bumped up to a 4.

Result: Jokaero unit has results 4 and 5. They already had the 5++ save, but now their weapons are rending.

The other way to read it is that since duplicate results are ignored you just roll two sixes and get no bonuses at all. I think the wording will be changed for the final codex to explicitly counter this interpretation though.

Henchmen are elites but don't take up force org slots (like lesser daemons/IG priests/techpriests). Corteaz makes them troops instead of elites.

This is nonsense and there's nothing in the rules saying they suddenly take up force org slots or override their own "no slots" rule after corteaz makes them troops. Problem is, the lack of slots and tiny minimum model count for the henchmen squads *might* end up breaking the game in the early pre-release rules so there's a guy or two here trying claim otherwise.

Exactly. Right now you can have unlimited ones but it's pretty clearly not the designers intent so it will be amended in the final version to allow six units that ARE troops and DO fill force org slots.

Right now you can take infinite units but also need two compulsory Grey Knights units anyway to fill your "Two Troops" requirement.Seeing as Corteaz' ability so obviously exists to allow players to make Inquisition armies that feature no Astartes, this is yet more proof that this is not what the rule was written to do and it will be amended to make Corteaz' henchmen count on the Force Org Chart in the final codex.

OK, I have a question.

The rule on Inquisitorial Henchmen says that they ignore the force org chart and that you are normally limited to one per Inquisitor.

Coteaz says he removes the limit and makes them count as Troops, but it doesn't say they stop ignoring the force org chart.

With that in mind, why can't you have nigh-infinite 97 point gangs of 3x warrior acolytes with meltaguns in chimeras?

Nobody really likes the Jokaero, but they pretty much get a free ride because their ability to improve and modify technology is indescribable. Also, this isn't a conscious thing; their ability with technology is innate, instinctive. They don't think 'here is a gun, I will improve it', they see a thing that they think is 'wrong' and then they make it 'right'.

This is why if you leave a Jokaero alone with your Lasgun for ten minutes, when you come back to pick it up suddenly its firing twice as fast, three times as hard and at half the energy cost.
Or maybe it just has some wonderful engraving on the stock and a tooth dangling from the barrel because thats what 'felt right'. Jokaero are weird.

Personally I think this is the optimal monkey shooty unit. Two jokaero guarantees you never roll less than a 2 so always get at least one upgrade for the unit.

Each squad has 2 upgraded lascannons/MM/HF and 3 upgraded plasmaguns shooting out of the safety of a chimera. It costs 167 points. An IG vet squad in chimera with 3xplasma and no other toys is 170 points.

Grey Knight jokaero monkeys do chimera/special weapon spam better than IG veterans, and for cheaper. Think about that. A monkey army is BETTER than a guard army at shooting you off the table from the safety of metal boxes.

6 of these units is two points over 1k. 5 of them + corteaz to make them troops still leaves you 67 points to pimp out the unit you plan to stick him in. How about three plasma cannon servitors for 20 points each? They won't mindlock near him and for 60 points you're putting the same triple plasmacannon out of a chimera's hatch that a guard player pays 190 points for in the Leman Russ Executioner. And of course, the jokaero bonuses. Those plasmacannons might be rending or 48" range.

Not that it matters what I would "allow" as long as you use legal rules and an understandable system of WYSIWYG since this is a modelling hobby and counts-as should be encouraged.

However, in the months immediately following the Grey Knights codex release I would prefer that you join the hordes of people painting orks orange and flocking to GW en masse to troll the shit out of them.

This, like the Coteaz henchmen not being TROOPS-troops issue, will almost definitely not make it through the playtesting. I think it's a very safe bet to count on being allowed a maximum of six Henchmen units and for all-jokaero units to effectively just get two rolls on the table.

Even if we don't get any rolls though, who cares? Despite the fact that this /might/ be a very powerful army build I don't think anyone is in it for the powergaming. We just want to play fucking warangutans regardless of what rules they get.

>> No.13975805

GW doesn't always understand the worth of its own rules and units. This isn't really news. Look at how overcosted tyranid and daemon MCs are compared to eldar and space marine MCs.

Power armour being too expensive should hardly be surprising.

It is just a playtest codex though. It's possible that power armour is a bit cheaper and special weapons are a bit more expensive.

And everyone who has played a bit should realize that a carnifex shouldn't be almost worse than a wraithlord for twice the points.

And anyone who has spent more than a minute thinking about GW's business model should realize they're killing themselves in the slightly-longer-than-short-term by cranking the prices, alienating the veterans and only marketing to tweenage boys.

GW is fucking dumb. Never underestimate how dumb they can be. It's really sad, because we all love their IP and some of the old guard like Jes Goodwyn, but the company as a whole is foolishly run and makes bad decisions all the time.

at least they don't make too many HUGE rules gaffs anymore. Power armoured humans being a few points too expensive isn't the end of the world. Witch Hunters are still around and soon enough the new Sisters of Battle book will come out too.

I heartily look forward to the day when GW goes bankrupt and someone actually reasonable takes control of the franchise. On the one hand, potential fluff raping, which I don't really care about. On the other, a likely decrease in prices. As well as a less retarded business model.

It's not like the fluff raping can really get worse. I mean... I guess Warner Bros could buy the franchise and make Daffy Duck a Salamander and Coyote a Space Wolf but y'know... I'd be okay with that. It's still better than "MY ULTRAMARINES ARE THE BEST THEY AREN'T JUST THE BEST YOUR ARMY IS SPECIFICALLY THE WORST BECAUSE THEY AREN'T ULTRAMARINES YOUR ARMY WISHES THEY WERE ULTRAMARINES YOUR ARMY IS POOP BUY ULTRAMARINES"

And at least we'd have a better chance of lower prices, encouraging people who ragequit to get back into the hobby and ultimately making the company more profitable.

A while ago a redshit in my local GW converted an army of Space Apes by taking Genestealers, leaving out one pair of arms and filling the sockets with greenstuff and giving them Ork heads, then covering them with static grass to give them fur. That would be a pretty good way to make Jokaero.

On the hindsight, it's pretty funny that when he made the Space Apes he would respond to people talking about rumoured new armies by telling the next army will be Space Apes, showing them the models and telling they can go online and tell a redshirt told em that. And now it turns out we are getting Codex: Space Apes (with grey-armoured Space Marines also included for some reason).

The beliefs of your inquisitor are no longer involved in the tabletop rules (as it should be). Besides picking your order for equipment etc it's up to you whether your is a Thorian, a xanthite, an amalathan (sp?) or what.

Actually, there are also earring grenades. See Dark Heresy: Ascension. Digital Weapons are *usually* put on fingers, but they can also be inserted into armour or worn as jewellery in other forms. In some rare cases, rows upon rows of digital weapons are used as defence turrets on spaceships.
