So I was a huge Blood angels fan up until 6th ed rules came out. And I have alot a great deal of interest in them. I am looking at starting a Chaos Space marine army.

The current Figures I am digging are

Honestly, I think your rip and tear philosophy would find better purchase using the 6th ed chapter tactics. That said here's a critique of your list.

4 melta guns won't kill the big things you're aiming to kill. You lack bodies to take shots and do enough damage even if you ignore objectives. Your dudes are also fairly fragile as a lot of things in the game are geared towards 3+ hate. You'll be banking on that fnp a lot to weather the shots and that's dicey. Honestly, 4 units at 1500? That's just asking for trouble right there.

>> No.30032975

>>30032924
Addendum. You have 4 assault squads, not 2. This changes things slightly. I'm still not convinced you have the teeth to put a dent in the things you need to kill - wraithknights and riptides and other MCs. You should tear through most scoring troops though, which is always good.

>> No.30033335

>>30033087
As an alternative to dreads, what about focusing on highly specialized strike forces. Small numbers, focusing on mobility and taking shit down quickly? Basically making the most of their small numbers while keeping losses low kind of thing. But if you're still set on the dreadnought idea, have you settled on a chapter tactic? I'm guessing fists due to them being a Fist successor then?

>> No.30033393

>>30033335
I'm thinking Fists for chapter tactic, just because nothing else would really make sense. The veteran route was an option, but I thought the dreadnought route was a better one - especially since the whole reason I want space marines, mechanically, are independently operating bases of fire that can hold their own. That screamed Drop Pod marines, to me. I frankly have no clue what I'm doing, since all the suggestions and tacticas I could find were either "Metal Boxes for days" or "Bikes on bikes on bikes"

Aha, yeah, that sounds about right. I feel your pain, I absolutely adore Dreadnoughts thematically; it's disheartening to see how difficult they are to run.

I still run one in my army list but it under performs most games, one of the problems I have is that it's a huge bullet sponge, and even with the ironclad variant I still feel better off running Terminators- they have an excellent save and can actually take the punishment that is inflicted upon them.

Just a thought, don't take this as anything coming close to a fleshed out strategy, but maybe you could run some Scout troops? Scouts are actually a lot better than people give them credit for, if you drop down some Dreads they will invariably catch the attention of the other player, giving you time to get some scouts into place (you will also have the added benefit of getting them incredibly cheap, so you will have a lot of scoring units available to you)

Anyway, best bet is to just experiment a bit, having a fluffy army can be fun regardless of being ultra competitive.

>> No.30033722

>>30033525
Oh. That's easier. Most of the Space Marine Codex can do that already by benefit of 3+ saves. Some units to consider are the following. Centurion Devs are a good place to start. Loads of firepower. Tough as nails and the Imperial Fists chapter tactics benefit it. I recommend the Grav Cannon/Amp loadout if only to guarantee death for anything that has a toughness value. A land raider transport is optional but not always required. For your troops scouts are theoretically more survivable with a 3+ cover in ruins and sniper rifles ensure they can wound anything that has a toughness score. A command squad to accompany your captain or chapter master with an apothecary can be very tough, especially if you give em all storm shields. They can also pack painful guns, but that ups the costs considerably. Am I on the right track here?

Approximately so. I keep on wanting to like Cent Devs, but I keep on looking at the point cost and balking. There's three tyranid players out of eight of us locally, so melee S10 ap2 IS a threat that you're going to have to expect. Scouts with sniper rifles, centurion devestators with grav-amps, and maybe sternguard were going to be my big three 'maybe' options.

For the record, of the other guys that regularly show up:

1 Space Marines.
1 General Imperium (Last week, raven guard. Week before, IG. This week, mix)
1 Space Wolves (Drop pods!)
1 Dark Eldar (Skimmer Fleet)

250 pts for centurion devs with grav cannons/amps are shitting out 15 ap2 shots a turn, reroll wounds. When you factor in the hurricane bolters, it's quite a steal especially at 1850. For ten more points you can get night fighting and split fire in the form of the omniscope, giving you more options on what to shoot. You'll want to watch out not for the big mcs but small, quick things like hormagaunts and genestealers if people run them. Those things will tie up the centurions and render them pretty useless. Which means either a counter charge unit or keeping a tac squad close by to shoot at shit as they come closer and leave the centurions to deal with the big things. You can skip the assault centurions, however. They are pretty shitty.

For vehicles, the storm talon is a fucking steal for its points. Okay, it's no vendetta or heldrake, but it shits out a respectable amount of dakka for its points for both airborne and ground targets.

Are you planning to make this army aggressive or more defensive?

I'd keep the combi weapons on the sternguard standard. Plasma is a good choice as you have decent amount of anti tank and plasma can do both anti infantry, anti mc or anti light vehicle. Other than that you can drop the stormshields on the command squad for now and grab a decent melee weapon on the captain + a couple more toys to play with.

Cant really give insight for all the legions. But for example, when the Night Lords decided to fuck up a planet, 100 or so children decided to kill anyone in their way in order to get to a safe bunker, seeing that, the NL thought they were cool shit and took them to make into Legionaires

I'm playing CSM and I'm having trouble against my friend's Nid flying circus. He takes 2 Flyrants with Devourers, 3 Crones, 2 Tervigons, 2 Venomthropes, 2 Zoanthropes, 60 Termigaunts, 3 Warriors for extra Synapse, 2 Biovores and an Aegis defense line. He put his ADL in the middle of the field giving everything behind it a 2+ cover thanks to the Venomthropes.

Going over your list, I've come to the conclusion that you'll need a fairly hefty overhaul of your list if you want to tackle your opponents' nids. Here's some things I noticed and some suggestions on how to fix it.

1. Your chaos lord. I figure you got him just to unlock Noise Marines as troops. I reckon you also plonk him behind the quad gun for him to man?

2. Lack of reliable anti mc answers. You have some in the form of Belakor, the Oblits, the Havocs and possibly the Noise Marines but you need to commit a hefty portion of your army just to take down ONE mc while the rest of the army just marches up.

3. Belakor. I love him. He goes into every Chaos list I write. He's also not very useful in this situation. Get a DP with the black mace and go to town on his ground troops. Cheaper too, especially if you drop psychic options.

4. The cultists. You're probably only running them to cap back field objectives. Unfortunately they are 50 pts that could go into making your entire army more efficient at dealing with enemy threats.

5. Lack of bodies. Your army resembles a grey knight army in terms of model count but you lack the saves or the firepower to model ratio to back it up. That is going to hurt you.

6. The noise marines with the doom siren. What's up with that? In my eyes that's an invitation for first blood, right there.

Suggestions are as follows.

The primary problem is the lack of bodies and lack of efficient mc answers. We'll keep things shooty for now. Ditch the cultists, the rhino and the icon of excess. Ditch one oblit squad and replace it with another autocannon havoc squad. Ditch belakor and get a dp. Alignment is irrelevant - just make sure he has wings, the black mace and power armor. Psychic abilities are optional. The spare points can now be spent on giving your noise marines more blastmasters and more bodies in general. That should help a bit in fighting the nids

>3. Belakor. I love him. He goes into every Chaos list I write. He's also not very useful in this situation. Get a DP with the black mace and go to town on his ground troops. Cheaper too, especially if you drop psychic options.

All of this advice is good except for this.

Be'lakor is probably the best single model you could possibly have against a Tyranid FMC list, or Tyranids in general. Telepathy is basically an anti-Tyranid toolkit from the ground up.

>Psychic Shriek
Not great against Crones/Tyrants/Tervigons because Ld10, but great at clearing out Venomthropes or Biovores without having to stop flying.

>Dominate
Basically stops a unit of 30 Gants (or possibly Biovores) from contributing for a turn, now that they don't get Ld10 from Tervigons anymore.

>Mental Fortitude
MF is great since you've got an ADL of your own; one of your units can go to ground behind it for 2+ cover, then Be'lakor can pop them back up next turn with no downside.

>Puppet Master
Probably the best of the bunch. Puppet Master is better than any anti-air you could possibly field against a Nid FMC list, because you just take a Dakka Flyrant and make him shoot down a Crone every turn.

>Terrify
Terrify is an incredible power against Tyranids. If a unit of Gants is ever too close to the board edge (or arrives from reserve, as many people do with their second 30-man unit) you can tell them to make Ld6 or get the fuck out. Also great for its ability to combo with Hallucinate (see below).

>Invisibility
Invisibility is, obviously, the best single Psychic power in the entire game. It's jesus in psychic power form.

>Hallucinate
Hallucinate's value varies, but is great at dicking with the Ld10 bugs who are mostly immune to a lot of Telepathy's other shenanigans. If you drop Terrify+Hallucinate on a Crone/Flyrant, you have a 2/3 chance of preventing them from doing anything next turn, and a 1/3 chance of them having to stop flying as well.

>1. Your chaos lord. I figure you got him just to unlock Noise Marines as troops. I reckon you also plonk him behind the quad gun for him to man?

Yarp. I hate having to take Lords that tend to be fucking useless unless they're in a biker army just to unlock better troop options.

>2. Lack of reliable anti mc answers. You have some in the form of Belakor, the Oblits, the Havocs and possibly the Noise Marines but you need to commit a hefty portion of your army just to take down ONE mc while the rest of the army just marches up.

I struggle with this even harder when fighting Tau and Eldar.

>3. Belakor. I love him. He goes into every Chaos list I write. He's also not very useful in this situation. Get a DP with the black mace and go to town on his ground troops. Cheaper too, especially if you drop psychic options.

I'll consider it. Though, I tend to think that Be'lakor is the better TAC unit.

>4. The cultists. You're probably only running them to cap back field objectives. Unfortunately they are 50 pts that could go into making your entire army more efficient at dealing with enemy threats.

Yup. I put them with the Lord manning the Quad-Gun. They won't be missed if I get rid of them.

>5. Lack of bodies. Your army resembles a grey knight army in terms of model count but you lack the saves or the firepower to model ratio to back it up. That is going to hurt you.

I know. I can't ever seem to get enough bodies into my CSM lists. Larger cultist blobs could work, but I don't trust t3, 6+ infantry with shitty leadership to do anything of value.

>6. The noise marines with the doom siren. What's up with that? In my eyes that's an invitation for first blood, right there.

I mostly just wanted them for mobile scoring. With the rest of my troops cowering behind the line/in backfield terrain, I have no way of getting objectives beyond my deployment zone.

The reason I say he is not very useful in this situation is because of Shadows and as an anti MC character. He only has 5 attacks on a charge, 4 normal. You'll probably never see his d3 warp charge rule come into affect as most of the nids should be fearless from synapse. If you throw him into melee, his LD drops to 6 which reduces his efficacy as a psyker. Yea, Telepathy is the bees knees, but the beauty of Belakor is you drop him into combat and start casting those buffs and debuffs from the safety of not being shot. And he should win most combat due to 5 Fleshbane attacks at high I8. However, throw him against a tervigon and he'll need 2 turns to take it out and that puts him in shadows range. You can use him as a ranged controller kind of thing and just killing things with vector strike, but that makes him over costed. For anti mc, the Black Mace Daemon Prince will mow through anything in CC through tons of fleshbane attacks and the Cursed rule and he'll do it for cheaper. Yea, you lose EW and Telepathy shenanigans, but I think it's worth it for the price drop.

Guys, 40k rules question here. Two guys are playing and drama ensues. One guy has assaulted with his chapter master and their unit a chaos marine unit and this slaneeshi sorcerer. In short, the sorcerer wounded the chapter master and insta-killed him with his force-sword.

A discussion about warp charge points generation, when to spend, how long they last, turn vs player turn and turn vs enemy turn, are mainly the topics.

Hard to catch bikes would be pretty fluffy tho. Kinda an inbuilt hit & run for bikers and pretty much anybody with an increased Move....

A lot of questions seem to regard a Charging Units ability to do real damage. What if we gave Charging units first turn buff beyond +1 Attack? Maybe +1 A, S and Initiative on a Turn it Charges? That way even it its engaged it did a good amount of Damage when it was in Combat.

>> No.30061104

>>30060968
Warp charges are refreshed at the start of every player turn. So at the start of the Chaos turn, the Sorcerer would have his warp charges reset to full. Whether he uses them or not, at the start of the Space Marine player's turn, the Sorcerer's warp charges go back to full once more.

The spells will tell you when you can spend warp charges. In the case of force weapons, they happen when you deal a wound with the force weapon. Basically it's this. You roll to hit. Then you roll to wound. Any wounds? Got 1. Alright. Spend one warp charge and give that wound instant death.

As far as player turn is concerned, when referring to the rules and the rules tlak about turns, it's always referring to player turn and not game turn unless specifically mentioned. This is why the player going second can charge on his first turn even though he has scouted or infiltrated because while it's game round 1, it's techically second turn since first turn is taken by the player going first.

That said, even though the rule has the instant death rule, the chapter master is allowed an armor save - if he has a 2+ armor - or an invulnerable save. If he fails his save, he dies unless he has Eternal Warrior.

Yep, it wounded. Now that I understand more, the discussion seemed to be about the sm player saying in his own turn the chaos player dont generate a warp charge because its in their turn, or some bullshit. The chaos player said even if it was like that, he didnt spent his warp charge from his previous turn, and the sm player said that at the end of the turn the chaos player lost that warp charge. Or something like that. So I think the chaos player is right generating/spending warp charges in the sm turn if its for activating a force weapon.

Probably a bit late for a reply, but they're borderline useless. They can't hold objectives, they can't assault from outflanking, and they're 6+ save Boyz with grenades (FUCK YEAH INITIATIVE 2 oh). Their one saving grace is the ability to take up to two burnas, but you're paying a huge tax just to get two flame weapons. Models are awesome mind.

I have no experience with using them in conjunction with a Chinork. I doubt they'd be much better even then.

Snikrot is totally useless. His one thing was coming in from the opponent's table edge and wrecking one unit. He can't do that anymore. He doesn't have a power weapon or power klaw. Awesome model however.

Personally I always take Reavers in three's, so you can get a maximum amount of bladevane upgrades. Heat Lances aren't all that great in my opinion (Blasters got 18" range and do the same thing basically, just more reliably).

Besides your 3 venoms and your Reaver bladevane attacks, you don't have all that much firepower. If you Wracks are foot slogging they will get shot down or at least have severe casaulties.

Seeing as you're a Slaanesh bro, I'm powerfully inclined to suggest allying with Daemons.

Daemonettes are really fantastic against anything that walks. They will eat any of the Tryanid MCs or troops in CC minus Super kitted out warriors or Genestealers. They are also fast bodies for cheap. Protect them using Invisibility or the grimoire of true names. You can even use Belakor in the allied detachment to dodge his shitty warlord trait.

Tomb Sentinel (Sepulchral scarabs(grants IWND))- 210

Fortification-
Void Shield Generator (3 layers of shields)- 100

1815/2000

The plan for most matches is the nemcesor, Cryptek of Destruction, and 1 warrior blob sit on the VSG on a backfield objective, using the fortification aspect of the VSG to get line of sight to use the nemcesor’s cool abilities. The blob is large to be able to kill shit that deepstrikes next to it, and ensure that no amount of long range harassment removes them entirely.
The cryptek of despair goes with the deathmarks, to abuse his ap1 fleshbane flamer.
the Tomb Stalker walks up the field, hugging the edge of the VSG, as that immortal unit screens it and leaves something to threaten the middle of the field.
The immortals go in nightscythes and snatch objectives and shoot. Afterwards, the nightscythes make a nuisance of themselves, act as AA \ pick up that other immortal blob if the stalker has died.
The Deathmarks and the Sentinel are going to enter play via the phased reinforcements rule at the same time as to try to enable an early assault for the sentinel and to maneuver into place for the deathmarks’ flamer to have maximum effect. This forces the opponent to make hard decisions as to what should be shot first.

So, any comments/criticisim/things that wreck this list?

errata says that they can pick up and disembark troops in contact with the base while zooming.

I can see that. But until they put it in the FAQ, then the RAW crowd will argue for it.

And even from a fluff side, I can totally see a company commander screaming for his artillery support RIGHT NOW. That covers the Bring It Down and Fire On My Target orders in my opinion.

Can someone help me? I'm a total newbie, making a 1k point Necron list. How does this look?

Necron Overlord
-Mindshackle Scarabs
-Resurrection Orb
-Sempiternal Weave
-Warscythe

Harbinger of Despair
-Abyssal Staff
-Veil of Darkness

Harbinger of the Storm
-Lightning Field
-Voltaic Staff

Necron Lord
-Warscythe
-Res Orb

Cryptek
-Staff of Light

Necron Immortals x5
-Gauss Blaster

Necron Warriors x20

Canoptek Wraiths x3

Tomb Blades x3
-Shield vanes
-TL Tesla Carbine

Annihilation Barge
-Tesla Cannon

The Storm Cryptek, regular Cryptek and Lord go into the Immortals. The Overlord and Despair Cryptek go into the warriors. I think I have a decent mix of gauss and tesla, so I feel I could deal with a mixture of infantry and vehicles.

What do you have on hand and how many models are you willing to buy?

Also, I hate your formatting in that army list.

Remember, only one member of the royal court per squad, and you want to have the court member try to want to shoot at the same thing as the unit he is attached to.

Examples of good combos are Stormteks and warriors, or deathmarks and despairteks.

With your list not being helped much by the way you use the crypteks(also, res orbs should go into large blobs, they make their points back that way) you might want to consider re-doing your army.

TLDR- your army is illegal due to some silly mistakes, and synergizes with itself poorly.

Ok, That annihilation barge is the best thing ever. keep that.

Nightscythes are amazing transports, as that whole"move then disembark" thing that it can do while ZOOMING makes necron troops the most mobile in the game. you can move up 36" and then disembark and then shoot(24" or less to snap fire)

I already said annihilation barges are the shit. They provide AA(TL+tesla is funny) anti light vehccle(S 7 shots) and anti horde(Arc). av 13/13/11 and skimmers make them really nice.

Scarabs make vehicles die, although warrior-heavy lists have no problems with vehicles.

Also, i like your overloard loadout. That's pretty much the best generic loadout for the points you can get.

So what you have already(and will probably attempt to incorporate into your list) is

HQ-
Overlord-(MSS, Orb, warscythe, weave)-160

Troops-
10x warriors-130

Fast attack-
3x scarab swarms -45

Heavy Support
1x annihilation barge-90

Which totals to 425/1000

I would add more Annihilation barges. Competitive lists require redundancy in everything but deathstars. Double or even triple annihilation barges is a solid choice.

other than annihilation barges and scythes, another good unit is wraiths.

If you don't mind smashing the parts from your overlord onto a destroyer, making a destroyer lord and wraiths is a nice plan. Destroyer lords leading wraiths is terrifying, and murders the shit out of pretty much everything.

For elites, I would consider deathmarks, and if your army includes immortals(Tesla immortals are pretty much always better) a triarch stalker.

an alternative list you could make with your stuff would be-

(in next post)

>> No.30084647

>>30084568
HQ-
Destroyer lord(MSS, Weave, Scythe)-160

Troops-
5x warriors(65)
5x warriors(65)

Dedicated Transports-
Night scythe-100
Night scythe-100

Fast attack
6x Wraiths(one with no upgrades, 2 with whipcoils, 5 with beamers)-255
5x scarab swarms-75

Heavy Support
Annihilation barge-90
Annihilation barge-90

1000/1000

Alternatively, if you don’t want to go the Destroyer lord/wraiths route, drop the wraiths and the destroyer lord, take that 160-point overlord, take larger squads of warriors/immortals and put them in scythes and/or walk them.
Crypteks are also an option, my personal favorite is a 5 man deathmark squad with a cryptek of despair is amazing at abusing an ap 1 2+ to wound flamer.


Also, when purchasing, keep all methods and possibilities open. CCoN and zhanchui have crazy discounts on necron stuff.(search on foolz how to order from them, don't ask in this thread, ill just tell you to search foolz)
(yoymart is another recaster, but they are just someone in china selling Zhanchui's stuff without shipping costs and at a markup, so use them if you want a small order only) Convert crypteks so they dont look like ass, and buy from ebay/some other method of getting a discount if you want.

The Cannibal Creed are a deviant sect of the Word Bearers founded sometime during the 32nd Millennium. They are known for their particularly brutal cannibalistic rituals, unusually strict discipline (for Chaos) and zealotry, and a unique view of the Chaos pantheon that holds Khorne and Nurgle as analogues to Yin and Yang forces, considering Slaanesh and Tzeentch to be unbalanced devils and the patrons of cowards. The Cannibal Creed icon is a stylized dog skull biting into a chunk of rotten human flesh. While the warband has no known battle cry or motto, some Adeptus Astartes have reported hearing the growls of rabid, snarling dogs during skirmishes with the traitors, though the sounds don’t seem to come from the Chaos marines themselves. Their colors are blood red, brazen gold, and corpulent green.

Cannibal Creed attacks on the Imperium are rare, usually focusing their campaigns against followers of Slaanesh and Tzeentch. This has earned them the moniker "The Traitor Inquisition". The warband are sworn enemies of the Word Bearers, and have tormented their Founding Legion for nearly eight Millennia. Their most notable victory occured in 888.M41, when they covertly commandeered an Imperial Cruiser during the Exterminatus of Typhon Primaris, instead steering the ship to the Bushwine Sector and exterminating most of a hive world controlled by a Slaaneshi cult.

Important Characters:

Augustus The Abbot, Warlord of the Cannibal Creed – The Abbot’s origin is unknown. The first recorded account of his existence dates back to the Heterodox Schism in late M32 that separated his warband from the Word Bearers forever. Before the Schism, Augustus served on the Dark Council as a high-ranking Dark Apostle. However, he found himself fervently disagreeing with his fellow council members’ interpretations of the Book of Lorgar, and in the end disregarded the book itself. Decrying his Legion as puppets to both the Changer of Ways and Prince of Pleasure while ignoring what he considered to be superior powers, Khorne and Nurgle, Augustus staged a coup that would place him at the top of the hierarchy while defeating Lorgar through subversion. This plan came crashing down when Augustus and his band of rebels were betrayed by double agents, who leaked his plans to the Dark Council and orchestrated the near decimation of the rebels.

Augustus and his mutineers narrowly escaped Sicarus on the hijacked warship CVRVLIS ANTHROPOPHAGORVM. Fleeing the Eye of Terror, they searched for decades to find a suitable home world, and have kept this base a secret from the Word Bearers and Imperium well into the 41st Millennium, although they are most active in the Scarus Sector. The Abbot has since declared an unholy war on the Word Bearers and anyone who owes fealty to gods other than Khorne and Nurgle. He is said to never remove his suit of defiled Mark III Iron Power Armor, and typically wields a lightning claw and power axe on the battlefield. He also carries a heavy flamer, to send the whelps of lesser gods burning into the jaws of their weak masters.

Brother Cyprian, Supreme Presbyter – Brother Cyprian is a Dark Apostle and second-in-command of the Cannibal Creed. He is a draconian arbiter of Divine Law, often inflicting harsh punishments which include death on his charges for the smallest perceived acts of disobedience. Aside from his congregational duties, Cyprian is also in charge of the mechanized support of the warband. While The Abbot heads the primarily Khornate devotees, the Presbyter is the official seat of predominately Nurgle worshippers. Because Nurgle is viewed as the passive aspect of Chaos, only Nurgle marines are allowed to perform the humble task of operating and maintaining machinery, but are forbidden to speak casually unless spoken to by a Khornate or Nurglite superior.

Brother Cyprian was formerly an overzealous troop of the Dusk Raiders Space Marine Legion, and still wears his pockmarked Terminator Armor today. After defecting to the Word Bearers Traitor Legion under unique circumstances, he aided Augustus The Abbot as an advisor in his attempted upheaval of the Dark Council. A corroded lightning claw is crudely welded to the right gauntlet of his Terminator Armor, while his left gauntlet is a power fist dripping with poison, which he uses more on his own parishioners than on the front lines.

I'm thinking "lol we stole a cruiser from the imperium right under their noses" might be kind of dumb, but those ships are fairly small compared to say, warships, and my warband are supposed to be master trolls who can hide anything (even though they hate tzeetnch, they consider it part of khorne's martial skill)

That's based on a band name, right? Sounds like a band name.

On a completely different subject, have been toying around for a while now with the idea of a master of the forge with the armor indomitus and a conversion beamer. Overcosted as shit and inferior to just giving him a bike? Yeah, probably. I just like it for some reason. Anyways, kicking around ideas of what squad to pair him with, and I'm considering devastator centurions. What guns do you guys think would best compliment a conversion beamer? I figure chest missile launchers are a given, but otherwise, I'm almost tempted to go with lascannons or heavy bolters. I don't want this unit really getting close enough to use grav cannons. Lascannons are best rangewise, but I feel like midrange with heavy bolters and str 8 ap 4 pieplate might not be too bad, at least sort of matches up on targets.
Thoughts? Or even just other squads to put a relentless (non-bike) conversion beamer in? I think centurions are my best bet, but never know.
