I like warhammer because I like the setting, which I use for a model in my 'darkest grim future of darkness' space-era setting. I actually know very little about the mechanics of how the game is actually played. Just always liked the lore.

No problem there, man. I actually have never played a game. I discovered 40K about a decade ago now, and though I have watched a handful of games my friends played, and kept up with the rulebooks and whatnot, I'm more in it for knowledge and the lore, too.

Man, I'm just borrowing these books. The only ones I own are both the Blood Angels Omnibus's, just because they have always been my favorite chapter since I first discovered 40K.

Cain is a Commissar, if that's what you mean. But the novels are very humor orientated and tongue-in-cheek, though they are not found wanting for action or drama. Sandy Mitchell wrote them. I think he is a great author based on these books alone.

To be fair, weren't those inquisitors he killed trying to gain that information to use it themselves? Same reason they were so butthurt that he destroyed the Necroteuch rather than let it get into their hands way back in the first novel.

>> No.26894001

I have actually. Maybe it's because I like the character so much I end up making allowances for him. Plus everything he told Ravenor in that story came true. Ravenor was the dumb one for not viewing his own interrogator with suspicion after he found out several times he was hiding something.

>> No.26894006

Not all of them. For example, the Conservative Witch Hunter he kills (basically just because he's annoying) and all the Ecclesiarchs he kills in that one cathedral who he just kind of decides not use his Rosette with. Some of them were Radicals, but whether or not they were, killing a bunch of other Inquisitors and Inquisitorial assets (including a whole ship) that are actually supported by the Lord Inquisitor is not a sign of a Conservative.

I think it would be hard to roleplay a daemon that's not already insanely powerful. It's like roleplaying a termagant or something. It's just complelled into action by something much more powerful than itself. It doesn't make decisions any more complex than what to do in a fight. When you start getting up to the levels of more powerful greater daemons, named daemons or daemon princes then it becomes a high powered mess. Even in Black Crusade the player is assumed to lose control over his character when he achieves apotheosis.

An interesting take on the same idea would be a game where all of the characters are machine spirits.

It's just because you came first. Look at DA. C:SM isn't even that great. If you got a C:SM level book you might be satisfied with diversity but your overall list will still pale in comparison to Tau and Eldar or even a min/maxed IG.

>> No.26911066

I wouldn't say the Axe is strictly worse. Its 20 points cheaper (which IS fairly significant), and has the potential to generate a ton of extra attacks. Of course, it can also fuck you MUCH harder if you roll that 1.

Mostly the issue is that the Chaos Lord is a shitty chassis compared to a SM characters unless he takes a Bike/Jugger, because Chaos cannot into 2+/3++ saves and their Land Raiders suck.

[100] FA1 - Darkshroud (80 pts)
Assault Cannon (20 pts)

[100] FA2 - Darkshroud (80 pts)
Assault Cannon (20 pts)

The RAS Land Speeders peel off from the main force with one of the Darkshrouds in tow, effectively acting a squadron without requiring coherency and allowing independent targeting. First speeder blows open a transport, while the Darkshroud and the other speeder let rip with the assault cannons. If there are no transports, all three have at it with the cannons.

The scouts infiltrate on (an) objective(s) and stay put, relying on the attack bikes or speeders to crack armor and the regular bikers to break a serious infantry advance.

The regular bikers support the scouts as above or H&R on big shooting units while the command squad gets close enough to assault.

Command unit (sammy and libby inside) bust termies, transports, and possibly fliers with massed plasma fire, and assault anything that is too much for the regular bikers. Other darkshroud follows them.

The attack bikes lurk around the scouts and regular bikers to provide any anti-tank if the speeders aren't close.


>> No.26919066

Do you really think such small scoring units are all you need? I'd be worried about this list if it was any higher in points. Also, Infiltrate is okay, but by no means a perfect strategy. No plan survives contact with the enemy, and all that.

>> No.26919137

Well, If I combat squad the RAS I have eight scoring units. 4 groups of 3 bikes, 2 attack bikes, and 2 scout units. Alternatively I have some relatively sturdy units with 6 T5 3+, potential 4++ from pfg, potential 3+ jink from nightshroud, ATSKNF Stubborn scorers. The scouts can also get a relatively easy 2+ cover from cloaks and darkshroud. Dunno, seems about as survivable as a squad of tacs.
