On the other hand, like BL they're just churning out endless HH crap and have apparently forgotten that 40k not only exists; but is better outside of rules anyway.

I think they are doing it because there isn't much lore around it and they want to cover it.

>> No.41307921

Their Imperial Armours were better in pretty much every way on top of giving us more than just endless derivatives of the same space marine shit.
Though I will concede that Forge World's presentation of the fluff is far better than BL's shitstorm.

Because lord of skulls is suppose to be on treads? That's like making a Warhound titan with wheels instead of feet.

Also, it's not a lord of skulls on legs, it's an entirely different daemon engines that just has some similarities with the lord of skulls, like with Defiler/Soul Grinder.

Lord of skulls is a torso on treads. If you put it on something else, guess what, it's not a lord of skulls anymore. And it isn't. The thing with the legs is not a lord of skulls, it's a totally different daemon engine, even its fluff says so.

I'd argue that should be how the Defiler should have looked in the 1st place. Having the front two legs be the fighting arms looks a bit weird, especially when the top half is basically a dreadnought torso. You could instead attach the fighting arms to the torso like normal arms and have it be a quadruped for the bottom half.

If you take the front leg plates and extra pauldrons off the centurions they look so much better, you can see there's actually a marine in power armour underneath them (seriously, under that leg armour there are powered armour legs modelled, but unseen) which makes it look more like a piece of kit that attaches to the body rather than the stubby MARINE WITHIN A MARINE thing they have going on.

Uh line of sight has nothing to do with it, and as for it being a walker sure classify it as a walker I don't care what you call it, I meant that imo the treads served Khorne's aesthetic better. It's crude, it's scary, and it has a giant container of boiling blood on it. Legs are just legs, they're not interesting. What makes it stand out? I liked how being a half tank sets it apart, it gives it flavor.

>As the various warmachines strode into battle, the shifting of gears and grinding of treads on axels as they trained on through oceans of skulls echoed out. The Blood God's engine of war issuing challenge to a gallant imperial knight in the distance.

>> No.41318292

I hate the Chaos knight model, It find it to be far too "Knight with spiky bits", at least the kytan looks like a daemon engine thats evolved over the last 10,000 years.

>Sales go down
Because they messed up something, somehow. The customer has no way to make the sales of a company go down by himself. Killing specialist games or releasing badly balanced rules, along with other bad choices, tend to have this effect. (Remember Conga Line or Flying Dreds?)

>Prices go up.
This is GW begin GW, and economy begin economy. The more you buy, the more they charge you. Maybe they, for some fucking reason, decided that since they weren't selling like they used to, they would rise the price to cover the expenses and keep the Execs fat salary intact, which actually made their sales worse because less people are buying their overpriced toys. If they see any threat to their salary, they start cannibalizing themselves (Less workers on their stores) and using tactics that alienate their customers (Destruction of fantasy, along other 40K examples), further decreasing the sales.

>Death of Fantasy
Bad choices along no incentive of the owners to make it a good game is what killed fantasy, because it was not selling as it used to. So instead of fixing the problem they decided to reboot, like that guy who re-installs windows because he got a single virus.

I'm thinking that, after the Horus Heresy is done, the designers are going to be so burnt out of Marines that there's going to be a huge influx of absolutely everything else.

And I'm hoping that they start rolling out Dark Mechanicum abominations for the last couple of books, possibly delving into the tech-heresies of the Dark Mechanicus in 40k based on designs from other parts of the lore and possibly some of their more vintage Rogue Trader designs.

What you're saying sounds like putting a turret on a Valkyrie and calling it a Leman Russ with wings. Nothing stops you from making a lord of skulls with legs, but just like nothing stops one from putting a warhound titan on wheels, but is it still the original thing, or something different?

A warlord on wheels sounds cool.

As for the 'Is it still the original thing or something different' maybe just something like, so long as all the weapons and base and height are modelled appropriately it'll count as the same as the original?

Like if you replaced the warhounds feet with roller skates but was still same height I'd still call it a War hound

Are we talking fluff or rules, because I'm talking fluff. Soul Grinder and Defiler use same bits of the model but in fluff are very different. Same with Lord of Skulls and OP pic. The fluff acknowledges the similarities, but states they're two separate things.
