Psyker, 10 points per model

s3 ap6 assault 1 36" large blast

strength goes up and ap goes down for every additional psyker, max out at s10 ap1.

Yes. Two handed simply means you can't claim a 2nd CC attack with it.

Indeed, you can field henchmen as Elite, but uses a troop choice. Fielding an inquisitor allows you to field a squad of 3-12 henchmen for no slot cost. Replacing the Elite tag by Troop tag, from coteaz, means the one you take "free-ly" from the Inquisitor itself is a troop that doesn't use a slot, the others do.

See, that's what I was thinking in the first place. Just means you have to take other stuff besides Jokaero if you want a decent sized army. That or take regular Inquisitors to boot.

>> No.14232105

wait, are you arguning against monkey armies?
it seems pretty clear
with corteaz, henchman coiunt as a troops choice for missions, but do not take a FOC slot.

>> No.14232134

So let's get a final ruling here.
If you have Coteaz, your Henchmen take up a Troops CHOICE where they are normally an Elites CHOICE. Normally they do not take up Force Organization SLOTS. Nothing in Coteaz's ruling says they take up SLOTS. Being Troops choices means they can be the 2+ Troops you need for an army.

Putting those together, it seems like, if you have Coteaz, the rest of your army could be Henchmen. Each unit of Henchmen would be a Troops choice, but not take up FOC slots.

Correct me, /tg/.

>> No.14232146

Sigh, again read the updated page at >>14232007

The addendum is clear. It's a elite troop like any other unit UNLESS it's a retinue. The only way it's not the case, is if in another section of the rulebook, there is a rule like the demons in the CSM book, stating that henchmen don't take slots, ever.

Coteaz simply change the tag from elite to troop.

>> No.14232165

no thats what the current rules say, it may lated be FAQed that they do infact take a FOC slot as well as being a troops choice, but until then monkey spams are a go.

>> No.14232167


They don't take a force org slot only if they are taken as the Inquisitor retinue. "This unit" refers to the unit in the previous sentence. Otherwise, it would "Inquisitorial Henchmen does not take a force organisation slot" like in every other codex out there.

>> No.14232174

Lets look through the rules.
>Inq Warbands are Elites Choices
>Taking ONE Inquisitor means you get ONE additional warband that doesn't take up a slot, however, the others still do.
>Coteaz's rule means that Warbands are now Troops choices, and removes the above Inquisitor restriction
So now at best, you can have 6 Troops Warbands +1 non-ForceOrgSlot because of Inquisitor Coteaz

>> No.14232185

+1 free band from another inquisitor in your HQ slot, if you take one.

Otherwise yeah, that's what I've been trying to say.

>> No.14232198

no you are an idiot or a troll.
for every inquisitor you may take 1 unit of henchman. thses do not take a FOC slot. you may only take 1 unit for every inquisitor you field.

What I was saying is that you basically have 2 sets of Warbands, the ones that take a Elite Force Org slot, and the ones you get with an Inquisitor.

Compulsory mission slection requires an HQ choice and 2 troops choices, but does not require units to take slots to be compulsory choices.

>> No.14232708

I see Anon at 'ole 544 as correct as written. Coteaz doesn't make them take up FOC slots. What he DOES do is he makes them Troop choices instead of Elite choices.

So, All Monkey Army is a go.

>> No.14232720

They're an Elites Slot normally. See the codex picture >>14232007

However, they have an additional rule that for every Inquisitor you take, you get a Warband that doesn't take Force Org slots.

What Coteaz does, is move Warbands to Troops (Which, by itself, would limit you to 6 Warbands), and remove the Inquisitor-Warband limit, meaning you can now have 6 Warband Troops + Unlimited 'Inquisitor-Warbands' (Who are also Troops who don't take up Force Org Slots).

A lot of tournaments used to ban SCs back in 4th because they were "optional" rules that specifically required the permission of your opponent. With the 5th edition codexs, the codexs are balanced (in theory) with the SCs in mind. This was the trade for removing sub-faction specific rules from codexs: Instead of getting rules to customize your army to a specific sub-group (Chapter Traits, IG regiment doctrines, etc), you instead get SCs that do something similar.

Games Workshop has made it clear that even if something does not take up a Force Organization Slot, it still counts towards minimum requirements (see the FAQ for Black Templars, on the Emperor's Champion). Also, Coteaz does not say that the rule is ignored, rather that the per-inquisitor limit is ignored. So, you are wrong. Simple as that.

You're focusing on the monkeys.

I'm focusing on the cheap quasi-terminators with supporting monkeys to add heavy weapons and give amazing bonuses to the teams.

You could go all Jokaero if you want, that's cool, but it's not what I'd want to do.

Grey Knights aren't Inquisitorial henchmen, and won't be benefiting from monkey refits.

I also would have FUN if I don't take any Grey Knights in the Grey Knights codex. And I could maybe convert my Necromunda Goliaths...

I still can't believe grey knights get terminators as their regular infantry.

>> No.14233393

The problem is, that the Planet of the Apes list isn't THAT good against a well made list. A 10 man squad of marines rapid firing into a unit of jokero will kill (on average) 6 of them. That's 210 pts down the toilet from a single round of firing. That's just basic bolter fire. On the flip side, a 10 monkey unit of jokero shooting at that same marine squad will probably only kill four of them. All this is assuming neither side has cover (which, if you are playing correctly, will never be the case).

Basically, you're making a one-shot wonder list that's good against a specific type of list (albeit, very common type of list) but sucks against every other list.

So do Dark Angels and Space Yiffs. Blood Angels get a crappy version. But yeah, GK's ARE supposed to be the best of the best of the best of th.....so it's only fair that they can pull a hilariously elite army off.

>> No.14233441

If you have a marine squad rapid-firing their bolters into your otherwise unprotected apes, so they rely only on their 5++ save (and assuming you don't have an applicable bonus from the monkey improvement chart), you really screwed up.

Chimeras, firing ports, etc. The Inquisition is better at bringing heavy weapons than the Imperial Guard is.

>> No.14233443

You can, but then you start cutting down on the number of monkeys you can take. Then, to make up for your krytponite level weakness to assault, you start adding stuff to help with that. After a while, you end up with a perfectly reasonable list.

TLDR: Pic related (and blatently stolen)

>> No.14233448

how should crusaders be used?

Some have considered pairing them with death cult, but I think Death Cult at i6 is best just on their own

and then those eviserator guys x6

crusaders block hits so you can dig in with your s6 2d6 pen weapons. They can be the anti-dread squad.

A lot have deep strike, but not everything. Everything with Terminator armor, of course.

Not an amazing combo, but it should look cool.

I plan to put a bunch warriors in Power Armor with 4 Bolters (15 points each), 1 Melta (24 points), and 1 with Chainsword and Plasma Pistol (stupid expensive 29 points). Going to paint them as a 6 man Deathwatch kill team. Even ordered the Deathwatch shoulders and helmets. My fluff for their non-space marine stats? Too much group infighting leading to low cohesion. Also 2 monkeys and 4 Psykers, all in a Chimera.

That's 223 points plus whatever the Chimera costs. Is it still 70 points? Does anyone have that page?

I am really hoping to have 36" range Bolters and/or a +2 save with this.

I think people need to spell Coteaz correctly, you bastards keep putting an 'r' in there.

Also, carapace armor is a total waste, and if you want an effective blasting chimera consider putting Coteaz in a chimera with 3 plasma cannon tech servitors. They have to stand still to shoot but they make marines very sad.
