i had some potential updates/houserules to that old codex i never got to try. or complete. herpaderp. have some posting. it's shit.

the deathworld veteran benefits are replaced with (there's one benefit i don't know how to update scince that's no longer a thing, that you can see and shoot farther into terrain. nowadays terrain either blocks line of sight or not.) deathworld veterans rule(nearly every unit in the dex has this rule) now gives: Move through cover (and treat all terrain that they can move through as clear terrain for movement purposes), Stealth, any unit on foot may infiltrate but only into terrain

revamp the ambush system. but it's probably gonna be NO SCATTER DEEPSTRIKE INTO TERRAIN THAT YOU CHOOSE WHEN THEY SHOW UP, EVEN ON OPPONENT TURN(obviously you can't do anything with them on opponents' turn except like. get shot at. or recieve a charge. I don't even know why you'd drop them on the opponent's turn really). OH? AND YOU CAN ASSAULT FROM IT.'

Frags and ccw come standard

Ironhand and Marbo work as per 5e guard dex, with the addition that marbo may ambush like a sniper and may replace a sniper in the army at his normal cost.

Sentinels are as per the guard dex. 35p and come with free camo netting and heavy flamer, with +1 attack over the base 5e sent due to chainsaw. these things need all the help they can get.
Snipers(the unit) are now 15points each and in the "counts as an elite but doesn't take up a slot" zone. They can move like normal now, and during your move if they're in terrain, they can be removed from the board to redeploy from ambush again. they can't come back until your turn is over. also, shrouded

+1p/m krak grenades
5p voxcaster
Armoury purchases don't replace already equipped weapons (just because ahnold in commando did it.)
Reprice weapon upgrades to match current guard dex. perhaps lower the price of regimental specialty weapons. perhaps make democharges unlimited use? they're hurting for antivehicle, i think.

" Tarkus states that the traitor was one he fought alongside with at Kronus, and that they became regular friends during the Tyranid Invasion on sub-sector Aurelia. Now, it is impossible for Tarkus, Cyrus, Martellus, Jonah Orion to be the traitor, as all are present in said game, fighting alongside Gabriel Angelos and Apollo Diomedes. This leaves Thaddeus and Avitus. But as far as we know, Thaddeus did not participate in the Kronus campaign, plus he is not part of the group if you start a new campaign in Chaos Rising without importing your previous save file from Dawn of War II, as all commanders who died in the final mission of an imported save file are. This leads us to concluding that only Avitus could have been the traitor."

How many large scale planetary invasions have you weathered since the Horus Heresy? One. The 13th Black Crusade was the only major effort to conquer Cadia since the Horus Heresy and despite the support of the entire Imperium you were driven back to one tiny continent.

Cadians don't do anything, they have been invaded one time, Tallarn has been invaded twice, Armageddon three times. Maybe if you guys were actually competent you wouldn't need over 843 Imperial Guard Regiments and over 173 companies of space marines to resist a single invasion.

While this is true, Cadian's are usually the first responders to a black crusade. Or whoever happens to be in the direct path. That is when they do start from the eye. Because like you said sometimes they don't. My point was 13 wasn't the first Crusade to hit Cadia.

>There is a reason its called the 13th BLACK CRUSADE. as well Cadians kinda fight everywhere at once, kinda like the krieg and Vostryans
Yes, because Abbadon has launched 13 crusades with different goals. If you think each crusade was meant to capture Cadia you should kill yourself now, only the 13th Black Crusade had that goal, the 12th for example didn't involve a single battle on Cadia and was to seize the blackstone fortresses for Chaos. Great job there by the way with all of the blackstone fortresses in Abbadon's hands or destroyed.

That's a misconception as well. It comes from the problems with cloning Horus, but that was because his soul was special, a Warp construct made by the Emperor that couldn't be replicated.

Clones not having souls would mean twin siblings not having them either, and that's ridiculous.

Afrieli Strain weren't pure clones - they had gene-splicing to make them better. The one canon character was a clone of Macharius and she was a female. Genetic tampering was the problem with them, not the fact that they were, for all intents and purposes, twins of famous people.

Remember - none of the Black Crusades of Abaddon have had the objective of destroying the Imperium. They've all been to secure items or strategic advantages that will allow him the best chance of destroying the Imperium when he chooses to.

He's have succeeded in taking Cadia too, since Chaos beat the shit out of the Imperium on the planet during the Eye of Terror campaign, but GW went "lolnope, can't have the Imperium beaten!" and made it only a minor foothold on the planet and the general war a stalemate.
