On the topic of 40k, I've GMed myself into a corner in Only War.

The players have taken over an enemy convoy, and stolen their uniforms on their way to the enemy base to sneak in and stab their general to death.

The problem is, I now have two more players joining in and no way to connect them with the group until the end of the adventure.

I played 40K up to around a decade ago. I stopped playing at around 4th edition I believe. Lately I've been wanting to pick it up again. I used to play crons but I don't really feel like playing them anymore because of their limited customisability and because Ward made them boring with the new codex. So the question for me is, what army? I've been looking at the Dark Vengance set as a quick way to start playing with friends. I am more partial to taking Chaos because I'm none to keen on the dark angel's paint scheme (pre-heresy or not) what would you guys think of me taking the Chaos army from the set and painint them up Malal style? I've also heard that the CSM in the dark vengaenace box are underpowered, anything I should pick up to put them on par with the DA?

>> No.22880548

Hope you like being the underdogs. And having jack-shit for Str 9+ weaponry outside of a Nob charging with a PK. They're painfully limited on 'dakka' that involves anything above the strength of an Autocannon, as all their Str 8 is 1-shot, and their Zzap Guns (what would be their Anti-Tank) are ridiculously overpriced and worthless 63% of the time for the role they were intended for. Plus they are not an army that gets much in the way of unit customization or options. Meaning you field -x- unit and unless it's a battlewagon or Nob mob, your options basically amount to what size you field them at, and whether you take a Nob with a PK or a Nob with a PK (because there is no other worthwhile weapon for your Nob leaders).

That said, the army can be fun to play, provided your opponents aren't try-hard fucks who list-tailor their army each game. And IA8 does a lot to help the Orks out and make the game more enjoyable, as well. Just remember "boyz before toys", "Shootas > Choppa/Sluggas", and "Never field Warpheads, Weirdboyz, Zzap Guns, Flash-Gitz, Stikkbombs, 'Uge Choppas (except in Nob Mobs), Stormboyz, or DeffDreads as anything other than a troop-choice. And generally speaking, Looted Wagons are really only useful if you can't use Imperial Armor 8, or you don't have the points for a real Heavy Support vehicle (*cough* Battlewagon).

I posted this in the Grey Knights thread but got no responses. Now it is entirely possible it is because this is of no interest to anyone on /tg/ but I will post this nonetheless in hopes of receiving some thoughts...

know I might get some flak for this (or more likely, no respone at all) but here is goes anyways.

I'm running a Draigowing army,

An ordo hereticus inquisitor
some henchmen (mystic and a couple of warriors)
some paladins
a landraider
a stormraven
and a vindcare

Anyways, this post is not asking for mechanical help but rather thoughts on the fluff I'm putting together for my army.

Basic Idea is that the information that the Grey Knights/Inquisition/Imperium has on Kaldor Draigo is incorrect, some might even know that it is incorrect but they keep up the charade as the truth would be bad for morale.

The truth is Kaldor Draigo has spent an uncertain amount of time in the warp and has been twisted by it. Following a number of battles in which he appeared he took a small number of loyal paladins with him back into the warp, his motives are uncertain but he seems content to slaughter any whom he comes across, he has been seen in the company of highly unsavory allies at times but after a battle he and his forces always disappear into the immaterium. Recently reports of these incidents reached the ears of the inquisition. They sent an Inquisitor of an Ordo Hereticus to investigate these claims, he has not been heard from since. (hence the inquisitor in my list)

So what do you think /tg/?

also any tips for modelling subtle chaos corruption onto Grey Knights would be appreciated.

Played a game with a bunch of new terrain that i scratched built.

It was the explode the radio tower objective special mission in the back of the book. 2000 on 2000

Blood angels with allied traitor tau vs Tau.

My army 3 hammerheads, 2 broadsides, 1 skyray, 6 crisis suits 2 commanders, 1 barracuda, 24 firewarriors 20 kroot. and 4 pathfinders.

against about 30 marines, 5 assault marines, vindicator, ball predator. hammerhead, devilfish, scout marines, hammerhead, stealth team with drones and crisis suit commander and 12 kroot"

boy was it fun. i was defending the tower but lost it and wasn't able to table him by the end of my turn (it was close, 1 hull point, 1 scout marine and 5 stealth suits remained.

some highlights
>The sky ray suffered two glancing hits in its first turn only to answer back by immobilizing both space marine vehicles out of range in the next turn.
>the barracuda killing a space marine librarian in a fly by.
>a lone enemy firewarrior being the last of 3 firewarriors who managed to stick by the building for a turn to win it for him after all the space marines had been killed.

It was such a close game, i'm really enjoying 6th edition a lot. rules seem to be a lot more seamless.

Hey guys could you help me out?

Ive been playing 40k for a bit now at my local gaming club.

Something that has always confuses me is when you are below 25% strength in a unit, for example 2 out of 10 space marines are left and must fall back WITH NO LEADERSHIP TEST. In particular what about Space marines falling back when they have 2 out of 10 men, are they not immune to fear? No one at the club really uses it and Im so confused.

I thought I should ask here rather than make a thread.

>> No.22881954

The Newcron fluff is preferred by the majority who weren't necron players and have actually read it. Unfortunately, it is always the minority that is most vocal (see: the two haters in every thread about any game ever).

Those who were necron players hated it, because of course you're going to hate it if your favourite army gets changed into something else, regardless of how good/bad it is/was.

The crunch, though, is incredibly internally consistent. It's high-powered, but so are all of Ward's codices, and it takes a skilled pilot to use most effectively. Outside of Cronair - which is the result of a fundamental problem with 6E, not just the work of Ward- no one list in the Necron codex is unbeatably cheesy.

Flayers are pretty terrible (for those not in the know, they're 13-points-each MEQ's with only a 4+, and only three AP- attacks in CC at only initiative 2, although they at least have infiltrate), but nothing else in the codex is so bad as to never see play.

There is some powerlevel overlap between units (why ever take lychguard or praetorians over Wraiths?), but even that example is two different force org slots. Customization is largely limited to HQs and unit selection, but that's mostly true for all non-marine codices.

Model-wise, their aesthetic might not appeal to most (too egyptian for the mindless death-robot fans, too robot for marine fans, too cluttered for tau fans, etc), but you must at least concede that the level of detail is as high as anything GW puts out, and the multi-part and multi-unit kits are fantastic. I was able to fashion an entire squad of immortals with just the guns left over from my tomb blades, some magnetized warriors, and $10 of bitz.

And I mean, come on. Just look at this swanky motherfucker.

I kinda want Snagrod as an HQ. Ridiculous amounts of fire. He's essentially a burnaboy who made it up the ranks to warboss.

On a related note, who's the warboss on the edge of Tau space that's been looting their dakka for upwards of a few decades? He sounds like he'd be an awesome model.

>> No.22881974

Yeah, anyone who wants that hack of a warboss, Grimskull, in the codex definitely hates fun.

> In particular what about Space marines falling back when they have 2 out of 10 men, are they not immune to fear?
They should still be immune to fear even when falling back under 25%, I'd think.

Pictures of your terrain?

.... why do you use a Skyray over more broadsides/hammerhead?

>I'm really enjoying 6th edition a lot
Flyers are a mess. But otherwise, I consider 6th a complete improvement.

>> No.22882022

You so rarely see the "below 25% unit strength, can't regroup" due to how loyalist marines saturate the game. Generally speaking, anything below 25% strength that breaks will never be able to regroup, barring some exceptions, namely marines who auto-regroup and practically wave away all the requirements to do so.

I've been running some sessions of Deathwatch and have decided to use the errata weapon rules, mostly because the heavy bolter feels too strong. A quick google told me to engage the devastator in close combat or use line-of-sight and cover for the enemies, so last session I tried to do this while still using the old rules, but combat remained pretty much revolving around the devastator. Does anyone else feel the heavy bolter is too strong pre-errata? Do bolt weapons feel like pea shooters using the changes?

>> No.22882213

Found it. WAAAGH! Grog, page 28 of Ork 5e.

Led by Grog Ironteef. Initially just to go h2h with Kroot for fun. Tau showed up to help their allies. Grog got pissed, declared an actual WAAAGH!.

Got his ass kicked repeatedly. Went back to brood, eventually came back a while later with a largely shooty army. He's completely stopped all colonization efforts in that part of the galaxy, and even managed to start pushing the Tau back.

He uses sneaky tactics and tons of kommandos, and most of his vehicles and dakka are looted Tau equipment.

Would make for an awesome HQ/army theme.

Let's remember that if we all only know 2-5 players of any given race, our anecdotal sample size is skewed.

And everybody plays marines, so any crazies other factions have, marines have too. Literally everyone I know through 40k has a xeno army, and a marine army.

Though of the marines, space wolf players are always douchebags I've found

>> No.22882267

didn't have more hammerhead turrets, and its still another tough vehicle, its a target they don't want to shoot, can't let live, and when out of seekers still provide a nuisance.

plus it looks cool.

The yellow egg thing is where there was an imperial bastion which was the radio tower. it was corner and corner with the other bunker.

There's a trench works across the table. and a factory behind it. While some ruined buldings and a wall were in the other half of the board.

From the other angle, this was there the attackers deployment edge was. his vehicles spent most of their time here but the 6 stealth suits and the vindicator where still around at turn 7 to prevent me from tabling him for victory. (didn't help that night fell at the end of the game.

>plus it looks cool.
Suppose I can't argue with that logic.

>its a target they don't want to shoot
Hmm. That's not something I ever thought about before. It might not be quite as strong, but people really don't want to shoot at skyrays. God damn do people love shooting at broadsides.

I like the terrain. Paint your shit, yo. It'll look snazzy as hell. And painting buildings is easy, way easier than you'd think.

>> No.22882318


Lastly the trenches, our kroot had a shoot out in these trenches before the end.

Also all of the vehicles except for the hammerhead facing the wrong way and the devilfish were still alive, it was a very close game.

And while it got lucky in this game with its shots, its also helps that a sky ray can get all of its shooting done in one turn. A rail gun is pointless if its blown up first turn, doesn't matter how many more shots you could have gotten. A skyray can fire all 8 of its missiles (if you get the marker lights) in one turn. this game it really paid off immobilizing two vehicles allowing me to split his forces better. and two marker lights are never bad to have additionally.

Skyrays aren't terrible, just better to have hammerheads. Plus tau vehicles are amazingly durable at the moment the way disruption pods work.

This is part of a campaign where we started with a pitched battle and we both have to destroy a radio tower at even points against the other and we both have to have a final siege game, and who's on offense is determined by who wins a normal pitched battles inbetween the outpost missions, i've lost two in a row. and i need to push back. Thinking of going full tau armored company next game for the novelty of it.

Only in the HQ mission will it be 3000 on 2000, its just the other special scenario in the back of the 40k rule book. Its just a variation on a linear campaign but with victory objectives for both sides.

we rolled some planetary effects for a death world so the atmosphere will always be poisonous, but mysterious terrain will always be mysterious to represent different biodomes.

His cover tau tactics keep winning over my armoured and crisis suit might. Stealth suits are tough fuckers now.

Nah i'm slow at painting and i'm painting some bretonnians at the moment . (really slow, i really should finish my army i do one knight every time i sit down to paint.)
