[ERROR] No.14180784 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

At Black Library live yesterday in the Space Marine seminar, with James Swallow and Nick Kyme, some one asked about doing more Space Marine vs Necron books.

James reply was that it was unlikely at the moment because Matt Ward was currently working on them, and writing there background.

>Necron books; Matt Ward; Writing

I think you may need to kill someone. I don't really hate it, but what is a lifter harness doing on a GK? It's very uninspired.
I really liked the look of the old GK models. Elaborately gothic, more edges and less rounded than normal marines. But whoever sculpted the new ones made them look somewhat less impressive to me. See for example the picture here.

>> No.14181562

he probably needs his legs free to move since it looks like its one of those suit things that follows the pilots movement. Also he does have Terminator Armour on, armour that is comparable to light tank armour in the protection it offers.

Man. I have a bunch of Grey Knights and every time a new batch of Rumors drifted out, I have been inching closer and closer to just throwing them all in the trash.

I just don't know. I liked the Grey Knights when they first came out even if they were really bad, even at the time, rules wise. Now, I just don't care anymore. Why do they want to give them the Avatar Robot Suits? Why do they want to make everything in the book completely negate the flavor of the army itself?

I liked them because they were more Knights than even Space Marines were and I liked their connection to the Inquisition. I even liked their ability to team up with other armies. Now, pretty much everything I liked about them just doesn't quite fit anymore. They have inquisitors but they're peripheral at best. They are knights but they also have giant TV antenna and Pilot Aliens Loaders. They can't ally with anyone anymore.

They just seem so pointless. They're just Grey Marines. I already have a marine army, why do I need another one?

Couldn't they have just shelved this book and made a Mechanicus army instead?

>> No.14181694

Still doesn't change the shitty design of it. The marines positioning in this... robot is comically bad. The Grey Knights legs stop the robots legs from moving a full cycle, preventing walking and running. Since the machines thighs have limited movement, the most this hunk of junk can do is fucking WADDLE towards the enemy.

Not even mentioning suspending a pilot in the middle of such a contraption with no canopy is an invitation for brutal murder.

Guess I'll sell my old Grey Knights and start Eldar or something more sensible.

Why the fuck do they need this thing, they already have Dreadnoughts and they have Terminators. You do NOT need something in between, it's fucking FINE as it is!

>> No.14181712

Personally I disagree, from what I've seen so far they've kept their Elite of the Elite space knight flavour. And you can still run allied armies, the henchmen rules let you run guardsmen or Sister of battle equivalents.

>> No.14181714


It's funny how you dismiss the entire army only because there is one model you don't like.

>> No.14181758

actually they sorta do need something that can go toe to toe with enemy MC's on the table top. Dreadnoughts can't because they're vehicles and so get raped as soon as the MC attacks. So their own MC is a good fit.

>> No.14181771

This model was merely the straw that broke the camels back. I started playing Grey Knights partially because of the underdog factor, partially because I could utilize a box of Kasrkin I had bought as my first models. I loved running a list that had mainly regular troops and Grey Knights as the special units, further elevating their "majestic few" factor. Now that theme is gone.

I am thoroughly disappointed.

>> No.14181819

you can still use your Kasrkins.

>> No.14181822


If I can totally just ignore the giant, weird space monkey machine, maybe.

I mean, that thing just speaks to GW's ever growing need to throw a giant gimmick into every new release, expecting it to boost sales. Instead of putting together interesting new rules designs (or even just refining old ones) they just rhwo something big and stupid for people to gape at for a while before it get's old.

I feel like adding something like that pretty much negates their role as Knights though; The whole idea, in my mind, for Grey Knights was thet they are individually powerful. They don't use firepower or giant machines to fight off Daemons, they use their faith and will to repell them. This stuff just speaks to the opposite to me.

Plus the Inquisitional Henchmen, though powerful, are just a mishmash of shit that you can only use with an Inquisitor unless you use "X" Special character.

This is another one of those long lines of GW things where, if they did some actual beta testing with people outside of the company, they might actually get reasonable feedback but instead they just create things through a constant inbreeding of ideas.

I don't know. I just can't shake the idea that this codex, even though it will probably be strong, it will be terrible. The fluff will probably be generic, the units have been shown to be uninspired and gimmicky (in the last codex, terminators had one sword, in this one, we will give them TWO! Oh Matt Ward, you virtuoso). More than likely the rules will be generic as well. Just a continuation of the "more" mentality the Codexes have been taking.

>> No.14181853


yeah that's why Grey Knights are supposed to be powerful. See, the whole idea when they originated was that they are just stubborn and willful enough to fight off Greater Daemons. They aren't supposed to need some big dumb looking Aliens Loader to fight off Greater Daemons. They use their powerful wills, faith and personal power to banish them.
Plus they have like a squad of Terminators gang up on the thing. Just because they're "elite" doesn't mean they don't gather for a beatdown.

Fucking Aliens Loader my ass.

>> No.14181872

2 swords s is just one of their options. And to be honest I like the Idea of having more options on my units.
Besides its not like you can't build an army without any of the dreadnoughts and dreadnights.

Also it makes sense that you need to have an Inquisitor to use their troops. Fluff wise its silly to think the grey knights can requisition troops off an Inquisitor.

But thats just my opinion and too each their own.

>> No.14181879


So they made a non-sucky version of the penitent engine, with a Terminator at the helm. Big fucking deal, you fucks just can't rest until you've had a nice big whine at everything.

>> No.14181896

Especially since bare-cones Inq is cheap as shit (25 points I think) and you can fluff him as Storm trooper sergeant if you want.

>> No.14181902

>Also it makes sense that you need to have an Inquisitor to use their troops. Fluff wise its silly to think the grey knights can requisition troops off an Inquisitor.

So what, it's less silly to think that an Inquisitor, who will likely have many groups of henchmen scattered around hunting down various leads, somehow cannot tell a group of henchmen to go help out a taskforce of Grey Knights he has assigned to a task, without being on the battlefield himself? The Inquisitor can't be one of the "brilliant mind, not so good at fighting" style Inquisitors, who delegates the stabby stuff to his underlings while he stays out and runs a bunch of operations? Yeah, that makes perfect sense.

>> No.14181953

then do as

A basic inquisitor is 25 points and has a Bolt Pistol, Chain sword, Carapace armour and Frag+Krak+Psyk-out grenades.
