If there's one thing that bothered me about the DA codex it's that they actually managed to give LESS information about the DA successors than before.

At least the BA's got sections showing successor colours for certain units (Particularly the Angels Sanguine and their white coloured DC+SG). Plus, yknow, Seth.

What would be a good alternate colour scheme for Deathwing and Ravenwing in a DoC army?

>> No.23014261

The Flawless Host
"greater good" >pic

>> No.23014287

Deathwing: replace the green with the 'bone' colour. The black/bone look would be pretty awesome. You'd probably want to tie some DAGreen in there somewhere too though.

Ravenwings: You could probably just stick with the normal scheme instead of going full black.

Alternatively, make them all the base scheme, with one shoulder pad bone/black. Or a combination of the above. What the hell do I know, I'm a dog.

>> No.23014312

I've heard that with the new flier codex, Vanilla marines might get the Stormraven.
If this is true, is it worth the points investment to deck it out with a squad of Hammer termies, Lysander, and a Ironclad, fully kitted out?
If it influences your decision, everyone in my FLGS plays Guard, Chaos, GK's or Necrons.

>> No.23014330


That rumour has no basis in anything and the Vanilla marines have Stormtalons and Stormeagles anyway.

I say highly unlikely.

GW studio doesn't give a damn about what forgeworld options an army has when releasing new stuff for them.

So what if Marines have Stormeagles, they can still allow ravens for them.

Same with Ork fighters, they already had plenty from forgeworld yet studio did their WD supplement.

The metallics need to be thinned, and next time put a brown basecoat down for your gold, it will go on much easier and be a lot brighter vs putting it straight onto black. Remember, many coats, this is the key to the thin your paints process, you thin it so you can apply many coats to get a nice bright full color.

>> No.23014761

Not that guy, but I'm not sure I see why you need to thin your paints. I guess the gem/eye on the torso is slightly questionable, but I can't see much of the detail blurring that using thick paints normally has.

Maybe he's talking about the lascannon arm conversion work? Honestly, your painting looks fine to me.

>> No.23023524

We have had a break in playing 40k and haven't played with 6th ed rules yet. I've been revising rules since we should be able to play soon. What caught my eye was new wound allocation rules and especially regarding template and blast weapons. Blast and template weapons used to used occasionally for breaking up unit cohesion. But it seems to be impossible now and apparently useless since moving is counted model-by-model basis. What's the general feel of this? Has 6th ed improved playing?

>> No.23024229

I play imperial fists because i think it most closely resembles my own sensibilities. I like to defend, turtle and camp in other games so its an extension of that being the reason i play the most defensive space marines in the entire game. Also dorn was the best loyalist primach, smart and strong with a penchant for building pillow fortresses. Unlike the grand autist guilliman, a blonde closeted asshole like johnson, a winged vampire freak like sanguinius or a wolf themed furry like russ. (corax and vulkan got their dicks kicked in, mannus let himself be decapitated AND got his dick kicked in and the khan was too busy doing circlework in the intergalactic carpark)

You've already got a good, solid body of infantry and a lot of firepower, but not a lot of speed and counter-assault capability. Use the BT allies to fill those holes - a couple of squads in Rhinos, one geared for shooting and one for assault, can either lurk in your rear lines and quickly deploy to reinforce an area where the enemy's made it through your shooting, or can be sent out to take ground and hold an objective some distance from your deployment zone.

you'd be hard pressed to find a better assault unit than some bt assault termies led by a chaplain. costly though

>> No.23028260

Lychguard aren't THAT shitty.

Now, I'm not arguing that they're an especially good unit- Royal Court Disco Inferno or a unit of Wraiths does any job they do better for a similar cost.

But they're not so much worse than those choices (especially with a Lord with MSS + Res Orb to babysit) to automatically completely wave off. Especially with just how badass their models are.

For example, take a unit of five give 'em Sword/Shield, Lord w/ MSS, Wardcythe, and Orb, and a cryptek with veil, and now you have an effectively 350-ish-point deepstriking deathball that can fuck up any vehicle, and most non-CC-oriented infantry in a single combat, can veil away if they get in a tough spot, and with T5 and cheap 3++/4+ WBB, can contest an objective deep in enemy territory and won't die short of half the enemy army rapid firing into them.

Personally, I wish praetorians and Lychguard had been combined into one unit, and that I could have Lychguard with Warscythes or 3++ jumping around the battlefield, but alas.
