So, /tg/, 6th Edition Chaos Marines?
Which cult troops are looking good?
Personally, I think Noise Marines have strengthened a lot, since I'm guessing they can take the Mark of Excess (grants Feel No Pain, Slaanesh only), and their guns now ignore cover. Combined with the fact the conversion pack comes with 5 Sonic Blasters and a Blastmaster, they appear to come with Sonic weapons as standard.

They don't. Berserkers have to buy Chainaxes (AP4) and Plague Marines haves to buy Plague Knives (Poison 4+). I'm not sure if 1k Sons have any special gear to buy, I just hope they don't have to pay extra for their AP3 bolter rounds.

If it meant they weren't automatically a "stupidly overpriced 'spess muhreen killer' unit", then I'd be all for that. Shit like AP 3 1k Sons, Vespid, Stormtroopers, Flash-Gitz, etc. all need to stop. Giving entire units AP 3 and making them cost retarded amounts is stupid. It worked for Dark Reapers in 3rd, but they were still retardedly expensive and Eldar players had a habit in those days of making anti-marine lists that died horribly to nids, orks, dark eldar, guard, etc.

Chaos muhreens of Khorne vs BA assault squad:

10 BA assault marines with jump packs removed 2 meltaguns in a rhino (35 point discount): 225 points.

-2 attacks, 3 on charge
-Ld9
-And They Shall Know No Fear

10 Chaos Marines with Mark of Khorne, Bolter swapped for CCW, Veterans of the Long War, 2x Meltagun, Rhino: 225 points

-2 attacks, 4 on charge
-Counterattack
-Ld10
-Hatred (Space Marines)

The Blood Angels are worse off in this comparison. With additional CC punch against everything plus extra boost against the most popular armies in the game and higher Leadership the Chaos Marines are in a position of winning their fights instead of just surviving like with ATSKNF. Fast rhinos don't matter much at all now that you can't disembark and charge ever, and for moving and disembarking Fast offers no benefit.

Not when you've got 1 faction that has every minor chapter being represented with it's own book or set modifier to the army's faction-rules! Having a vanilla-list "hurr one size fits none" codex like we do now for... well... everything but loyalist marines, is really fucking gay. Every chaos legion shouldn't be identical to Black Legion, just like every IG regiment shouldn't be Cadiatachans. We're talking about sub-factions that have volumes of information about their history, themes, warfare ideals, etc. If codices didn't waste pages upon pages of lengthy descriptions for every fucking unit entry, they'd have the space to actually have multiple themed faction army lists within the book, or at least the trait-customization to make them all.

>Eldar players have no reason to trust you to hold onto those promises, after all it was you who made the current codex where banshees and dark reapers are singularly bad.
Actually, Banshees and Dark Reapers were two units that did not need a buff in the previous 3rd ed codex. Indeed, little to nothing was done to those units other than to give their exarchs a few new weapon options. The current Banshees and Dark Reapers are a hold over from the Gav codex.

What's more interesting, is that Banshees and Reapers were both still widely popular in Eldar armies up to and well into 4th. It wasn't until 5th that their popularity began to dwindle, and a lot of that was because of the move to mech-heavy army lists. Banshees began suffering as an anti-MEQ/TEQ combat unit as soon as 3++ storm shields became prevalent, and units like Grey Hunters and Sternguard started appearing, where killing the 3 to 4 marines doesn't mean shit when they turn around and kill 5 of your banshees afterwards.

>> No.20866110

>>20866084

Banshees and Reapers in 4e were strictly "fluffy" choices and had no value whatsoever in competitive games. Instead heavy support slot was used by skimmers (that could only be glanced when moving under 4e rules, and were hit on 6's in CC) and elite was for Harlequins (To Hit rolls of 6 autowounded, ignored armour saves and rolled 2d6 armor pen against vehicles).

>The trait-customizations in 4e sm codex were mostly pointless.
That was largely the fault of the writer, who added in really silly 'disadvantages'. IG regiment customization on the other hand, was a lot of fun and though-out reasonably. Sure going to tournaments resulted in seeing a lot of IG armies taking the Mordian 'drill-order' for +1 Initiative and Weapons Skill if they were all b2b. But it still made for some really awesome custom IG regiments, and allowed them to quickly and easily say "-X- Regiment uses these Doctrines".

I'll take customization and the ability to add my own personality to my army, over bland/generic "one list to rule them all, unless you're loyalist muhreens".

The 'flying circus' competitive eldar army of unkillable skimmers only really appeared in competitive tournament play. And even then, it was because the vast majority of tournament players were marines, and trying to min-max in as much plasma/lascannons they could. The Holo-Field Skimmer spam didn't do so well against mass-autocannon IG, or even Orks.

Keep in mind though that the Harlies didn't even show up until the latter half of 4e. The most widely seen Eldar armies in competitive play tended to be Biel-Tan aspect-heavy lists, and the Alaitoc "disruption table abuse" lists. The latter was really just a colossal annoyance, while the former was the real power-house terror against Marines.

Marines themselves fared decently against IG, due mostly to min/max plasma-las spam. But Orks remained a bizarre wild-card in Tournaments, because nobody ever expected to face them. And they typically still put up a decent showing, too. When the clan listing became tournament legal, you began seeing more than just Kult of Speed and instead began seeing stuff like mass-battlewagon 'Ardboy armies (Bad Moons), the 5+ Cover Loota Firebase from hell, and the "beats the fucking snot out of you in close combat" Goff army. Orks were still a rare 'GOTCHA' army to face in competitive play after that, but it was a lot more difficult to predict what kind of an Ork army it would be (instead of just KoS all day, erry day).

You must be retarded. Yes Harlies were around prior to 3rd. However, Harlies were NOT legal additions to an Eldar army until the 4e Eldar codex. Hence it was not until the late-4e era that Harlies were even fielded without your opponent's permission. And even then, your opponent had to be pants-on-head retarded to allow it.

>>20866618
Keep in mind that Kelly (who IS an Ulthwe fanboy, and has been since he worked for WD), wrote the 4e Eldar codex in the time when GW was on it's "less = more" kick. As such, ALL (not just Eldar) sub-factions were removed from the game, hence Biel-Tank and Alaitoc went the way of the Chaos Legions and Ork Clans. Unlike his work on the Ork 'dex, or Gav's work on the Chaos one, Kelly did try to keep it possible to still field a craftworld-themed list. However nobody bothers to theme an army like that, because they're all color-schemes now anyways and you're just shooting yourself in the foot by limiting yourself on what units you are fielding.

>> No.20867266

Defiler gets Daemonforge (once per game reroll failed to wound and armor pen rolls in a shooting or assault phase), Daemon (5++ and Fear) and It Will Not Die (Regens one hull point on 5+ at the end of turn).

Since it's also 4 hull points instead of 3 like the forge/maulerfiend the rumoured price increase starts to make sense.

Did you not fucking read what you are replying to? He made it so you can theme a list on the craftworlds, but guess what... They suck! because you're ultimately just limiting yourself down to certain units without any compensation for doing so.

You *CAN* make a themed list off any craftworld by focusing on their core units (all aspects for Biel-Tan, guardians+seers for Ulthwe, Wraiths for Iyanden, Rangers/Pathfinders+Harlies for Alaitoc, Jetbikes for Saim-Han), but you end up with a weak list.

Forgefiend/Maulerfiend durability compared to monstrous creatures:

S5 or less usually cannot harm it unlike all MC's in the game, also total immunity to poison.

Against S6 AP3-6 it's a bit more durable than a C'tan shard (T7 W4 4++ or a Lord of Change (T6 W4 3++)

S7 AP3-6 (Autocannons, Tesla Destructors) need 11+ successful hits to have a >50% chance of destroying it. Against these weapons it's about as durable as a Keeper of Secrets (T6 W4 4++)

S8 AP3-6 need 7+ successful hits for > 50% chance, against these it's a bit more durable than a Daemon Prince (T5-6, W4 5++)

S8 AP2 needs 6+ successful hits for >50% chance, comparable to Talos with FNP (T7 W3 5+FNP save)

S9 AP2 needs 4+ hits for >50% chance, comparable to a Carnifex or Hive Tyrant standing in the open (T6 W4)

S10 AP1 needs 3+ hits for >50% chance, comparable to Talos with no FNP in the open (T7 W3)

This assumes destruction happens in one turn, if it doesn't there's a chance that it regens HP giving it an edge against MC's.

Necromunda is based on the 2nd edition ruleset for 40k, however. And that was back when weapons didn't have 'AP values' but instead had armor-save modifiers. A weapon that was Strength 4, added an additional -1 modifier to armor saves, added even more modifiers for each point of strength it had above Str 3. Hence, Str 7 attacks modified armor saves by -4 (giving 2+ a 6+ to save against it). Terminators had a 2+ save on 2d6 at the time, making them highly likely to pass any saving throw not inflicted by something like plasma.

In any case, IMHO all Hotshots needed was Str 4, not stupdily expensive AP3, -6" shorter range lasguns. If they had made Stormtroopers have Str 4, AP - Lasguns for 10 points a model (base), then people would actually still use them.

Some weapons in 2e had fixed modifiers though.

True. But most did not. And a CC attack made at Str 4 still gave you a -1 to your armor save.

You're incorrect, only Fantasy has a system like that. In 2nd edition armour save modifiers were weapon specific, for example multilaser had S6 but only -1 armour save modifier, shuriken shrieker cannon had S5 but -3 armour save modifier and heavy plasma gun at low power was S7 but -2 armour save modifier. And Necromunda came before Codex Imperial Guard.

Not to mention hotshot laser had the same armour save modifier as standard lasgun (-1).

Same with bolters

Hotshot lasguns were the exact same profile as bolters. The only difference between the two being that Space Marines could rapid fire their bolters (of all kinds), and guardsmen could not.

Except Hot-Shot lasgun = Hellgun, Hellgun = Host-Shot lasgun. It says so right in the quote.

Also, at least in IA vol. 7 Krieg grenadiers got hot-shot lasguns as well.

Thing I hate about warhammer cases is they advertise they are warhammer.
It is exactly what you don't want in a case. You want a discrete featureless case.

It's their painting station. It's molded to allow you to paint on your lab. Which is fucking stupid. I might actually have bought the thing if it were just for normal, flat, table use so I have a nice portable area to unclutter my workstation.

Autocannon Forgefiend is 29,6% more expensive than a GK psyfleman dread.

For that you get
-12,5% average increase in basic firepower
-safer defence against shakes and stuns (simple roll of 2+ instead of a psychic test vulnerable to perils and space woof/eldar tricks)
-5++, so no need to care about cover
-hull point regeneration
-pinning
-once per game reroll for wound/armor pen

I think the autocannon variant will be worth it. The plasma variant might see use depending on how the metagame shapes.

In Daemon World a Word Bearer ship liked to murder its own crew. It was twisted and dangerous, having blades growing out of the walls and some sections open to space. Only the bridge, engine room and some other sections were safe. The ship would report problems in dangerous areas and then enjoy as the poor crew go to investigate, only to get killed by traps, sucked into space, etc.
