Rules for Mind Worm are on Ezekiel's summary page. It's in this thread already.

It's basically S4 AP2, D3 shots at 12" and anything that takes an unsaved wound from it loses a bucket of stats--3 Ld, I, WS, and BS.

But like any and all "lose stats on unsaved wound" abilities, you'll almost never see it matter, as 99% of things only have one wound and the few that don't will generally fall into one of a couple categories:

A). Things your Librarian has no business being within 12" of
B). Things with wacky defensive capabilities preventing that S4 AP2 shot(s) from having a serious chance of landing
C). Things with a dozen guys willing to Look Out Sir the shot, even if you happen to pass the Focused Witchfire threshold to allocate it

What I'm saying is, ignore the stats-altering part of it, because you might see it affect a game in a meaningful way if you start playing 40k right this second and continue doing so for the next hundred consecutive years.

So basically, Ezekiel is forced to spend one of his 3 Mastery Levels on a 12" D3-shot S4 AP2 weapon. Meh.

And for reference, Mind Worm only exists as part of a pretty obvious trend by GW to prevent the special character "usual Mastery Level+1" Psykers from each book from getting too many rolls on the rulebook tables.

If Ezekiel had 3 rolls on Divination for 145 points, he'd be fucking retarded. Mind Worm is basically an intentional nerf so that they can make him ML3 without breaking the game.

They did the same thing to Ahriman by forcing him to take a Tzeentch roll, rather than being able to throw 4 rolls at Telepathy (or Biomancy if you're mentally handicapped).

Look forward to any ML3-4 Psyker special characters in the upcoming book having a "unique" power whose only purpose is to gimp them.

Something that always bugged me about them was that they were a very rare group of people "nulls" but Empy decided "hey lets halve the number available to us by only recruiting from one sex."

>> No.22567214

He's saying it's fine to have those two groups restricted to one gender because there's plenty of them to recruit from.

Nulls are rare as fuck and not limited to womyn so the whole idea that the Sisters of Silence are only women is stupid.

>> No.22567283

Which is why it is okay for SoB to be all women. Just grab any girl, train her, teach her to love the emperor and put her in power armour, even with marines, although a good number might die, a higher percentage of applicants become marines than individuals are born with the null trait and female. Look at it like this

8 out of every 10 applicants might be able to become a SoB
1 out of every 1000 applicants might be able to become a space marine
but only 1 out of every 10,000 people are born nulls (probably less) and only about 1 in 20,000 are born nulls and female.

I mean it is like saying you have a job that requires you be albino, but then you arbitrarily decide only women can apply. It means you will get a lot less applicants and have a lot smaller pool to pick from. With marines and SoB it is like you must be human and a specific sex, you will get a lot more male humans than male and female albino humans.

Nephilim. The TL Lascannon is the only decent weapon among either.

The Darktalon is 160 points of goof. Not a clue what the plan is for that thing. Hurricane Bolters! A S5 AP- Small Blast! A one-use support-only bomb!

The Darktalon is a Flyer that is physically INCAPABLE of engaging other Flyers. Or at least, any Flyer that isn't AV10 (and therefore can hypothetically be glanced by Hurricane Bolters).

The Nephilim certainly isn't great, but at least it has the option of attempting to hurt other Flyers. Unrelenting Hunter is a potentially neat rule, and while it's lame that the Missiles (and Mega Bolter) are only S6, they'll still help against the Necron Flyers.

Too bad for its cost its not that good of a ground-support plane either. The Darktalon has 2 problem going for it, A. its just not that good. Its 160 pts. and the best thing on it is a one-shot bomb. Otherwise it throws out a few bolter shots and a blast that is only useful for the Blind, a rule that suffers from "what I want to use it on is going to resist it anyway" most of the time (what was with GW and blind in this codex?). And B. the book lacks anti-air, so you're going to need that slot for it. Its better to take the one that at least can scratch other aircraft. And before anyone points it, yes, you can take Skyfire missiles, but that should be a 5 pts. upgrade, not 10 pts.

>> No.22569141


Telling us what it was "designed" to do isn't all that meaningful if it still fucking sucks at that too.

Flyers are, generally, expected to be at least mildly competent at engaging other Flyers, because it saves you a fuckton of points that you'd otherwise have to invest in anti-Flyer elsewhere.

A Baleflamer Heldrake is primarily for killing ground targets (and it's a fuckton better at it than a Darktalon would ever be) but can still rape enemy Flyers with its Vectors. If it were JUST the Baleflamer, it wouldn't be nearly as good--the army gains efficiency by packing competent anti-Flyer in a package designed to do something else.

A Darktalon is overpaying for "ground support" while simultaneously being the first Flyer that is 100% incapable of harming other Flyers. It's an awful idea.

I like the idea of flyers zooming in over the main force to dogfight whatever flyers the enemy has to gain air superiority.

>> No.22569363


Warseer--and the outside opinions of it--confound me. I don't really understand the source of the idiots who post there OR the idiots who go around talking about how awful Warseer is.

There are places on Warseer, particularly the dedicated Tactica for each army and/or the ones that have G&F threads, that are actually full of high-quality thoughtful advice and discussion. And every person that frequents those threads know that you never go outside of those threads, because the rest of the place is a godawful cesspool--particularly the Rumour threads and the General forum.

Sometimes I think it's just become a neverending clusterfuck of trolls trolling trolls. The forums receive all this additional traffic during the buildup/immediate post-release of a new book, which leads to all these randoms coming and posting stupid shit, who then go out and talk about how fuckawful the forums are, etc etc etc.

>> No.22569430

This. The core rules for fliers, not bad, a little too focused on the dog-fight aspect, but not terrible. The problem right now is that somethings just had the fliers rules slapped on because, thematically, they fit, but no thought into actual balance was given. Same with the anti-air.

It also doesn't help that the few books released for 6th so far are still completely under-prepared for an addition to the edition of rules they were written for.

>> No.22569471

>I must be the only person interested in reading the fluff of the codex over the rules.

There's pretty much zero change from the 4ED book. The only significant changes are that they downplay any chance of that whole "THE LION WAS THE POTENTIAL TRAITOR" thing or that Luther had a pretty good reason to be pissed at Johnson that the HH books and 4ED (to a much lesser extent because Luther was still Chaos out the ass) sort of had and just go "LUTHER AND ALL THE FALLEN ARE 100% CHAOS". Any actual expansion of the fluff beyond the HH rundown and what an Astartes is, that every SM book has, is also 100% just about how much they hate the Fallen. The entire book is literally just "FUCK THE FALLEN" and that's much more noticeable since it does have a lot more than the 4ED Codex so the Fallen:Anything else ratio is fucked.

I am glad they kept the Feast of the Malediction snippet because that's been around since RT.

>> No.22569477


The tactica threads tend not to be full of good advice after the first year of a codex being relased. The main reason is those players who are good at the game and can use crazy lists with oddball stuff and make them function well enough (they aren't goning to win the GT but still) get repeatedly told they are wrong and they just stop posting.

The best example of this is the DE tactica thread on warseer - there used to be laods of posts about some of the more unusual thigns you can do but now its just devovled into "take more raiders and venoms".

Dakka is even worse for this as the forumites fancy themselves as the next GT winner. A good thread on dakka right now is debating FnP versus force weapons - a 9 page clusterfuck where people arguing for a rules interpretation that not only breaks FnP but at least another dozen special effects.

/tg/ used to know what was crazy and for lols and what was balls-to-the-wall tournament play and where the divide was. These days its slowly turning into that which /tg/ used to hate (with good reason).

Personally, I like the sound of that. Wasn't a fan of the "The Lion was the real traitor" stuff that they had been promoting. I prefer the idea that the shame was from that there was even a single sign of weakness in the chapter, and a fear that if anyone finds out, the entire chapter is fucked; even though this all happened 10,000 years ago. Plays into the over-the-top logic that the setting has.

This. A thousand times. I like you, /tg/, but these days I honestly only come here around Codex releases because this is where the scans usually pop up first. I used to have time to read all the fluff shenanigans that occur around here, but not anymore.

But good lord it gets derptarded in here in a big hurry when /tg/ tries to talk about listbuilding or--god forbid--have a rules discussion. This just isn't the right place nor is it the right people.

I'm saying this as someone that serves as a head judge or rules council member for multiple GTs and whose core group of players has multiple wins/top 3's at NOVA, Adepticon, etc: the stupid shit that gets said around here regarding tactics or rules is leagues beyond 95% of what happens on Warseer or Dakka in terms of how high-potency the stupidity level is.

The Nephilim has a TL'd LasCannon. So S9 AP2, which has an half-decent chance of hitting EXPLOSION on the chart.

The Vendetta Standard is the Godwin's Law of 40k balance discussion right now.

Whoever compares the new thing to Vendettas first, loses.

Nothing will ever, ever, ever be as good as Vendettas. They weren't made with the Flyer rules in mind, they were already overpowered WITHOUT them, and they're idiots for not retroactively tuning them down when 6th hit.

If you can't play any Flyer because it's not as good as a Vendetta, then you're only playing Vendettas. Shut the fuck up and go ally in some Guard or something; it's not beneficial to the conversation.

>> No.22569841

60 points cheaper than what the Vendetta should cost, actually.

Anyway, no, not cool. But still cooler than Flakk Missiles IMO. The solution is still TL'd saturation. Perhaps from Black Knights.

Don't say that. There's still the Nightscythe.

/tg/'s biggest sin is that anonymity means nobody has to bother to do any sort of research and it causes polarization beyond fucking belief. They base everything they know on what /tg/ tells them (which is also a thing places like Dakkadakka and Warseer do). There's also no incentive to justify anything you say.

I never know if it's just one small group of bad players who bother to answer questions or if /tg/ is just universally slow. There's a few tripfags I can actually trust with information (DLFG, JJ, etc) and even then that's probably only because they delete their fuckups so "their reputation" doesn't go down.

I almost want to say NOVA but i forget exactly.

Anyway, the reason flakk on tacs/vets is important (to a degree) is you can spread them across your list without having one big 200 point unit of "flyer kills this first".

That's not even remotely true; you're assessing a bit too much imaginary consistency to GW's rulings.

The discrepencies are usually just "one entry has a thing, another entry forgot the thing" and it's rather random which one is which, but the fix is always "add the thing they forgot to the other entry as well."

It's not rocket science or anything.

And yes, Plasma Talons are Rapid Fire in the weapon summary at the end.

I direct you attention to the BA vindicator and the living saitn and arco-flagellant in the SoB codex.

Both of those mistakes (demolisher cannon being barrage, saint being an IC and arco's being S5) were errat'd to match the bestiary, not unit entry (and in the case of BA, summary).

Those are just 3 examples i can think of off the top of my head.

Well now you're full-on imagining EVERYTHING as opposed to just imagining GW's responses.

There was no discrepency between the unit pages and army list pages for the BA Vindicator; the stats for the Demolisher Cannon are, in fact, listed in neither place.

Where they ARE listed (in the wargear and the end-of-book summary page), they were BOTH wrong, and not because they said Barrage, but because they forgot to list themselves as Large Blast.

You got...literally everything about that example incorrect, and in the end, it's not even relevant to the point you were making. The book was consistent with itself, it was just consistently wrong.

Celestine is the exact OPPOSITE of what you're saying--she was correct on her unit page, and incorrect on the army list page.

Of the three examples you listed to prove GW always does things in one way, you listed one done that way, one done the opposite way, and one that was so fucktarded it hurt my brain.
