Those Guardsmen seem pretty chill to the unending wave of Tyranids coming at them.

That said, I love count-as and I want to use my newly obtained Arbites Enforcer miniature (along with the Cyber-Mastiff) in a friendly game with my IG. Should I just use him as a Company Commander? Or should the dog be a bodyguard?

I know it's just a picture and all, but not only are there cheaper, more effective ways to get lascannons on the field. Armoured sentinels should generally take advantage of the plasma cannon, or be a nice, survivable autocannon source.

And that's how Bob the Baker of Iyanden saved the Craftworld and turned the battle into a bloody stalemate... by beating a fucking champion of the Grey Knights to a pulp with a scatter laser turret in close combat.

I like to think he wasn't murdered messily and went on to become a Striking Scorpion or something. Or maybe he got a jetbike.

I do love Khârn but he is way too much of a wildcard.

I had a game (when i still used to put him with berzerkers) where he managed to kill berzerkers with all 6 attacks (5+charge) then the next turn he killed the last 2 berzerkers.

He ended up killing all the termagants, but as soon as he consolidated he was blasted by a group of warriors.

I tried starting a thread for it, but no one seemed to are enough, so I'll ask once more here.

How would /tg/ chart Soul Drinkes on the alliance matrix? They're my favorite army, but it seems like I'm the only one that cares about them. As the most on the cuff of Imperial/Chaos, it seems like they'd make for some interiesting team-ups.

Or at least post some Soul Drinker art, I've never actually seen any.

iirc they're traitors but not heretics so I'd say they fit into the same slot as normal SM although maybe with SoB and the like having less alliance points with them.

since they still follow the whole chaos is bad thing but dislike the way the Imperium is run but that humanity needs saving etc.

I started like 6 months ago and the store owner persuaded me to start with marines instead of tyrannids because they're easier (Read: bland). I've since come to the conclusion that he may have done this to get a new army's worth of money out of me when I got sick of marines.

I've decided not to go with tyrannids and I'm stuck between Dark Eldar for the sadistic space pirate theme and decent codex, or orks for sheer awesome and the freebootaz pirate theme.
I have the orks from AoBR and a haemonculus and squad of wracks that I bought for painting purposes. Which should I go with?

honestly just go with whatever you like the most.

DE won't get a codex update for a long while so you're safe as far as army lists/need to buy new models goes.

but Orks will be easy enough to convert to any new codex release, and even then they won't get one until some other races (read Marines) do first.

Three Grenadier Vets took down a Grey Knight sergeant in close combat.
Little storytime:
>1000pt IG vs GK
>Dreadknight is making my guys mincemeat
>Vendetta one-shot a Vindicare and did nothing else.
>Leman Russ got flipped by Dreadknight.
>Everyone dying
>Squad of Grenadier Vets in the open facing down GK Terminator Squad (Only three guys left).
>Go balls to the half, shoot at the Termies. Only Sarge left, Vets stand their ground.
>Termies fire. Kill all but three Grenadiers: Sarge, Meltagunner, Shotgun scrub.
>GK assault. Goes Hammerhand for shits and giggles
>Misses all attacks.
>Vets attack. Sergeant has a power weapon. He misses all attacks. Only one guy hits and wounds (I'm sure it was the shotgun scrub)
>Termie fails a 2+ armor save.
>Vets cheer
>Dreadknight fires and turns them to paste.
Lols were had. I don't care that I lose. That game was hilarious.

Starting up Fantasy after a few years break from playing any form of Warhammer, last time i played was 3rd edition 40K, never played fantasy in anything beyond a Mordheim campaign at a local GW that closed down.

ANyways, play level for the store is between 500 and a thousand points, figured if i grabbed the battalion and a captian of the empire, i have enough points for that. But i was wondering how to play empire effectively? I like the idea of the detachments, but i don't really understand the max levels of the actual parent unit, it just says 10+ on a lot of them, is the sky the limit or what?

I'd like to see that and know what strategies will work with them, i figured with detachments i can field gunners and cross bows with assaulty units, and vice versa with others to save them from charges, this is also my first time learning WHFB, but the store i'm going to play at is just starting out it's GW buttlovery as well so everyone is at a similar level

I mean they are meant to be redirecters or charge support units(supporting fire, being able to charge in the flank etc.) and if your enemy was a bot they would work wonders. The thing is though is that they will just charge the detachments and then overrun into your unit, and if the detachments are too far away to be overran they wont get the special rules your unit gives them so there is no point for them to be detachments anyway.

>> No.19131294

Pretty much the goal of this army is to beat the shit out of them with your 3 blocks of infantry while your cav secures the flanks. Keep your hurricanum within 6" of each of your blocks of infantry and use the cannon to kill stuff the halberdiers cant touch.
