From FFG site:

Fantasy Flight Games is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Only War! In this all-new standalone Warhammer 40,000 roleplaying game, players take on the roles of soldiers in the Imperial Guard, the galaxy-spanning armies of the God-Emperor. Fully compatible with FFG’s other Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay titles, this comprehensive game system explores a previously unseen side of life in the Imperium of Man.

In Only War, each player takes the role of a Guardsman, a member of the Imperial Guard and one of the countless billions of hardened conscripts constantly fighting on myriad fronts at the whim of the Adeptus Terra. In control of this martial alter ego, players go forth at the behest of their officers to fight the eternal and implacable foes of the Imperium – the foul xenos, the mutant, the heretic, and the dark forces of the Ruinous Powers.

>>Take the role of a Guardsman with one of twelve distinct Specialties, offering unique skills to your squad to complement those of your comrades. Will you bring the light of the God-Emperor to the battlefield as a Ministorum Priest, or will you wield the Imperium’s most cutting-edge technology as a fearsome Storm Trooper? Perhaps you’ll tend to the machine spirits of the Guard’s many war machines as a Tech-Priest Enginseer, or lead the charge as your squad’s Sergeant. Whatever your function, you’ll be a vital part of the Imperium’s vast war machine.

So, 12 classes.

Bloodthirsty xenos and the foul spawn of Chaos are hardly the only threats to a soldier’s life, however. Throughout your adventures, you and your fellow Guardsmen will also contend with paralyzing bureaucratic apathy, a leadership that often views you as expendable, and the fickle political maneuvering of those far beyond your humble station.

In spite of this, your squad must make the best of the situations you encounter, embodying the ideals of the Imperial Guard while punishing the enemies of the God-Emperor. A Guardsman must take the glorious fight to the enemies, and spread the Light of His Word to the darkest corners of the galaxy.

I have not. But I'm o /tg/ quite often and if there is one archtype on W40k that is a fertle ground for Mary Sues is the Space Marines. Guardsman are expendable, they die easily and are not rewarded by their deeds. Space marines in the other hand, only die after killing a hundred for each of them killed. In the canon, when a whole space marine attack group of several squads is whipped out, it's time for exterminatus. Guardsman are the back bone of the empire, but they die like flies. That's kinda the point.

I'm sure there will be some cool rules and gear to import into other games. But they already made one RPG that was centered entirely around combat. Why are they adding another? It should've stayed a supplement.

>> No.18573586

Actually, /tg/ celebrates guardsmen as the standard every-man. I hope some fa/tg/uys are intelligent enough realise that making them exceptional completely ruins any appeal that they have. The whole point of guardsmen is being one of many, crushing a superior foe as an inferior species with inferior weapons, inferior armour and greater numbers. A guardsman taking down a Space Marine is badwrongfun. Several guardsmen working together to take down a Space Marine and managing it successfully? Now that's badass.

Why would this be a problem? You can do that now. Use the vehicle rules from Into the Storm, roll up a techpriest, driver, couple of gunners. Every round the techpriest either repairs or calculates trajectories, the gunners gun, the driver drives. The vehicle rules are crunchy enough that everyone has plenty to do. Might be more fun as 4 PCs in 2 tanks, though. Much more tactical variety.

If you want them to be chumps, make them all 1st rank DH characters. If you want them competent, 1st rank RT characters: explorator, Rogue Trader, archmilitant, and voidmaster can work just fine as enginseer, officer, trooper, and driver.

The way we always do it when we play Guard games is that everyone has access to two progression lists. So everyone's a dual-class scum/guardsman or assassin/guardsman or arbite/guardsman, etc.

Although once I ran a oneshot where I gave everyone identical character sheets and they came up with completely different personalities. All Guardsmen with basic skill in medicae, tech use, command, and demolitions, because they'd all just gotten out of the same training, but totally different people.

Incidentally, I too am sad at the lack of Xeno game support.

That's a good idea, the dual-classing thing. I think for a oneshot everyone being the same is okay, but in a longer campaign it would be grating. But doubling up on progression is pretty cool. Do they get double the xp too, but it has to be split between the classes?

Nah, normal xp, you just have two classes worth of things to choose from. Your total xp spent determines your rank for both. It's exactly how Deathwatch wound up working, where everyone can buy from their standard Space Marine advances, and also from their Specialist advances.

And you can buy as much or as little from either tree as you want. An Arbite/guard might be playing an officer, and just buy straight guard advances except for the early access to Command from Arbite. A scum/guard might go the other way, playing that guy who's kind of a shitty soldier, but kills at cards, tells funny stories, and can get you the gear you desperately need because he knows a guy who saw a crate fall off the back of a munitorum truck.

I really wonder if there's enough material here to justify another entire game.

Pretty much all the 40k gear has already been printed in the various sourcebooks. As are the various enemies IG would shooting at. Mass combat system too, and many of the vehicles.

Excluding the new character specialties and backgrounds and other new fluff, I fear the book is going to have a huge amount of copypasta trawled from the previous gamelines and filtered through whatever tweaks the Only War ruleset has.

And that's scraping the barrel to just to fill the corebook. Apart from *maybe* filling a sourcebook with the Aeronautical stuff, I have a feeling the additional books will just have shit we've already seen just repackaged. With maybe some gazetteer type of book that's useful exactly once. And of course new backgrounds and specialties - we certainly don't have enough of those - specifically made for the few people that really want to play a Cadian or a Catachan but are somewhat superfluous in most games.

tl;dr - IG RPG treads the same ground as the previous games. You already have all the stats and fluff in the books you own, have fun buying them again with the Only War logo on the cover.

The technical scientific numbers in 40K are not bullshit because 40K weapons and armour are worse than First World War equipmenet, they're bullshit because the writers know nothing about science.
The species in 40K are not ridiculous and retarded because they're supposed to die the moment they take a single step, they're ridiculous and retarded because the writers cannot into biology.
The ethnicity of humanity in 40K is mostly white not because 40K mysteriously killed off all the coloured folk way back, but because the writers simply didn't bother to think about race or its importance in a sci-fantasy parody setting.

The designers of 40K are a bunch of pasty white gamers from Nottingham with no understanding of any form of science. They write game rules and over-the-top fluff. They don't give a fuck about how white the 40K universe is, because it doesn't fucking matter. If you want black guys in 40K, paint some fucking black guys.

I'm surprised anyone can get mad at boob-plates on GM models anymore. Eldar and Dark Eldar have them, Sisters have them, Inquisitors have them, Assassins have them, Sisters of Silence have them, those old female adventurers in in power armour (aka. closest thing to female space Marines GW has ever released) had them, all GW released female Guardsmen have had them, and every female in WHFB has them.

But slap a pair on a Cadian guardsman, and suddenly it's totally against the norm and unrealistic and "I will not stand for this faggotry!" Especially when the models are heroic scale and everything is a little cartoonishly proportioned.

As for Mira, I do admit that it was far more "realistic", but you also have to realize women do have breasts and they are sensitive. I knew plenty of women in the army, who bitched about how the kevlar squashed their breasts.

It's about the same as dudes wearing a plate instead of a cup. Lets see you go for hours with your nads squeezed against your body.

You don't have to have individual cups, but a top part that could be adjusted for a little looser fit would do it.

Guys, this is fucking retarded.
A whole new game line based on the Imperial Guard....I mean, we already have a military space fantasy game, why publish another instead of keep with the main idea which was made this a handbook for Dark Heresy?

>> No.18574862

Well yeah, but the point of the Guard is you get your boots (either in 'too small' or 'too large'), your uniform (ditto) and your lasgun (which is an awesome weapon of destruction which can obliterate all the foes of the Emprah). The idea of the Munitorum taking time to make space for tits is absurd.

>> No.18574888

>But slap a pair on a Cadian guardsman, and suddenly it's totally against the norm and unrealistic and "I will not stand for this faggotry!"
it goes against the Guard ethos

think about it. Inquisitors, Eldar, Sisters.. they're all one-of-a-kind individuals worthy of their own personal suit of armor

Guardsmen are just meat. Disposable, ready made, one-size-fits-all meat. Designing armor based on gender (and cup-size) implies that they're worth actual consideration.

If it was an all-female regiment, I'd have no problem with boob-plate. But when it's a mixed force there's really no point. It's a wasted effort for absolutely no gain aside from mild comfort for a select few who are almost certainly going to die before the campaign is finished.

Because the Dark Heresy rules are very outdated compared to the Black Crusade ones and are more than due for an update, and if they released this for the DH v1 rules then released DH v2.0 next year, everyone would bitch about how we'd only just gotten the guard suppliment we'd all been waiting for and now it was obsolete?

3rd ed. Codex: IG also has a drawn picture of a female guardsman with bewbs on her armour.

For one, each planet is responsible for training and equipping their own PDF, which is why Guard actually comes in so many different styles, and not just Cadian flavor. So while Munitorum does see to it that everyone is suppose to get more or less the same gear, they don't always supply the units themselves. Or else all regiments from all planets would be the same, which they most certainly are not.

And on Cadia the whole population is trained for war, not just men, so surely women have been included in the figure.

If you think making armour suited for men and women is "too complicated" then how about shoe and helmet sizes (at least we had S, M and L)? How do you know what size shoes and helmets to issue for a regiment? Or maybe you make a guess and have all sizes in storage many times over, most common sizes the most, and other less (I had to have non-army issue slippers, because they ran out of sizes). So making flak armours in 2 types with 3 sizes each is not that big of a stretch.

Or at least having more custom adjustment for the fitting, so you can loosen the top part for the female form.

And most regiments have the flak woven into their clothing, like Valhallans, Tallarns, Mordians, etc. So they don't need to worry about it that much, since the clothing is flexible and will form to any body.

when you can make twice of a single type it is. Women NOW can perform adequately in combat with male-fitted body armour. Do you really expect the Imperium to put more consideration towards the comforts of an individual than modern day earth does?

>Or at least having more custom adjustment for the fitting, so you can loosen the top part for the female form.
That's entirely reasonable and would probably be what was represented in Space Marine. But cutsom-molded boob-plate is a little different. It requires an entirely different manufacturing method than the angular plates of regular cadian bodyarmour, for little to no ergonomic benefit

And most regiments have the flak woven into their clothing, like Valhallans, Tallarns, Mordians, etc. So they don't need to worry about it that much, since the clothing is flexible and will form to any body.

You're assuming the Imperium just started from a clean slate. If the production lines and concepts were already in place, there's no reason for the Imperium to stop doing it. Remember, Imperium during and after the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy was veeeery different from the Imperium of the late 41st millennium.

Humanity has had around 28,000 years time to make women viable combatants and have equipment moulded to suit all parties. Unisex, adjustable breast plate would be ideal one, but then you have worlds that use rigid cuirasses and shit.

Yes, today you have female soldiers wearing kevlars made for the male form, but like I said, knew a few women in the army that disliked using those things, and none of them sported huge mammaries. Also, most women I know from boffing prefer chainmail and such over plate, and if they have plate, they either have one with enough room (the type with the wedge on the front) or hammer out some room in the upper parts.

I know comfort isn't always the most important thing in military design, but gear that fits you proper will ensure you get 100% out of yourself. I'm sure if a regiment is issued one size too small boots, their combat effectiveness would surely drop, what ever Munitorum thinks of it.

And how is it a waste, exactly, if they all get used?

To add, from what I can tell, Shira Calpurnia seems to be sporting a female form fitted carapace, with a little curvier chest area, compared to the slabs the men wear.

This is the only pic I can find of female and male arbites next to each other, but individually you can look at Shira from the cover of Enforcer here:
And compare it to this piece of male arbites, where you can see their more blockeir, slab-like chest plate:

Shira was merely Arbitor Senioris, so she ain't that high on the rank scale, and while Adeptus Arbites might not be as numerous as the Guard, they're pretty massive organization as well with millions of people all around the galaxy, and both men and women under it.

She is wearing carapace armour that has been stated to be expensive and sometimes customized to offer a high amount of protection, the fluff for flak armour on the other hand has always said it is a cheaply mass produced piece of armour. Though your fannon is nifty it actually has no real backing and still has the disadvantage of slowing down the production process since all the guardsmen will have to be measured before hand or it will be impossible to tell how many flak jackets of size X will be needed. You should also remember that many planets do not even produce their own equipment so with the communication being a huge issue already within the Imperuim how would a forgeworld now how many female chest plates they should produce?

I do not have any issues with the over exaggerated female amour you see in most fantasy and sci-fi games but it really is not practical and soldiers have used cheaply massed produced uniform for hundreds of years without any real issues apart from some comfort problems.
