File: 721 KB, 2000x1333, warwalkers1.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

I've recently gotten the Eldar start collecting set (already play BA). I think they're neat. They have a neat look to them, and their backstory is interesting to me. They also have a lot of mobility, and I like that.

I also got a War Walker, because I think they look really cool too.

So two issues:

(1) Which Craftworld should I paint them for? I like Biel-Tan because they're elf fascists who just want to protect the Exodites and destroy the barbarians. But I also really like Ulthwe, because I also hate Chaos and I like the idea of a society that is always on the brink of destruction, kept going by its leaders' ability to forecast the future and make key gambits. Eldrad seems like a cool dude.

I also like that Ulthwe doesn't have a lot of Aspect Warriors and keeps a standing force of Guardians. I'm mostly interested in the Eldar war machines anyways (Fire Prisms, Walkers, Jet Bikes) and with a few exceptions those are all piloted by Guardians, anyways.

So I'm leaning towards Ulthwe, but I also like the Biel-Tan color scheme.

Second, I'm probably going to magnetize the walker and any of its siblings, but what's the best way to field them? Just load up on scatter lasers and zap infantry to death? Or should they try to keep their distance with Bright Lances and Missiles?

>> No.49176295

>> No.49176329

Thats what im talking about with effective for the points cost. Let demon blades be free with drawbacks, or cost with no drawbacks, or have minor drawbacks but be super powerful. Like give chaos super swords that reduce BS for the character and any unit he joins, but shoots WS through the roof

Orks with every single infantry unit and many of their other options, too.

Any psyker unit.

>What sense does it make to have upgrades have drawbacks other than cost and opportunity cost?

It makes total sense. You're paying X points, some of that is discounted (theoretically) because it might not work out in the way you wanted.

And, thematically, for Chaos that works pretty well.

Biel-Tan's color scheme is more interesting than Black and Bone.
Use war walkers to make up whatever your army lacks in firepower. If you've got lots of anti-tank give them scatter lasers, if you've got enough anti-infantry give them bright lances.

Playing 1k Objectives. Ultramarines vs Khorne Marines and Daemons.

Which of these two lists is better?

List A: Demi Company
Cato Sicarius

Dreadnought (Assault Cannon, Power Fist with Stormbolter)

>Fast Attack
1x Landspeeders squad with 3 Landspeeders (each one has 2 HB)

2x Tac Squad 5man (Rhino with dozer blade, plasma gun)
1x Tac Squad 9man (Rhino with dozer blade, flamer)

1x Dev Squad 5man (4 Missile Launchers)


List B: CAD
Cato Sicarius

>Fast Attack
3x Individual Landspeeders (each has 2 HB)

2x Tac Squad 5man (Rhino with dozer blade, plasma gun)
1x Tac Squad 5man (Rhino with dozer blade, flamer)
1x Scout Snipers with cloaks, 5man

1x Dev Squad 5man (4 Missile Launchers)
1x Vindicator with Dozer blade


So the advantages of each are:
List A has a Dreadnought and a 9man Tac squad for Cato to join. Also it is a Demi Company, so I get obsec on everything and an extra tac doctrine.

List B has a Vindicator, a scout sniper squad, and the 3 landspeeders are individual instead of being in one squad.

Yes taking a psyker could possibly backfire on you and summon a Bloodthirster turn one. But the potential benefits are massive so its worth the rare drawbacks

>> No.49176587

There's also an element of control over the drawbacks for a psyker. It's ~possible to play one in such a way that they'll never perils, by being Eldar, or taking a Librarius Conclave, or just throwing single dice at it rather than multiple.

Daemonic Possession has no such control element (Which is the upgrade I was originally talking about.)

>Biel-Tan's color scheme is more interesting than Black and Bone.

Yeah, it is, and the thorn motif is pretty neat. Still, given that I'd probably be focusing on vehicles and bikes more than aspect warriors I'm not sure how well it would fit with the Biel-Tan theme.

Could do Yme-Loc because they like tanks and such.

>Use war walkers to make up whatever your army lacks in firepower. If you've got lots of anti-tank give them scatter lasers, if you've got enough anti-infantry give them bright lances.

How would fire prisms count for that? They've got a fine anti-tank weapon, but they're better at mulching infantry, right? The prism cannon only fires one shot at a time. A war walker could carry two Bright Lances -- squadron of three and that's 6 lance shots, hopefully into something's sides or rear.

I've considered what you said. While true, it doesn't seem as too much of a loss.

KDK Chaos Lord is already getting a +2A because Rage, and I plan on biking him so he gets that extra HoW (+bike squad). Also, I don't see myself using the Axe unless it's a Vehicle/TEQ where the axe is more effective but suffers to Unwieldy, which makes the loss of a single melee attack doesn't seem too important since I'm striking last with it anyways against TEQs, whereas the L.Claw will give me more wounds to inflict in early game assault to buff the Goredrinker effect.

which reminds me of another question I have

Abaddon's thirteenth Black Crusade threatens to be the greatest war ever to engulf the Imperium (and that's saying something!). For years, the Despoiler has been poised to make his move. And now, it begins.

>Traitor's Hate' is a brand new campaign book that details the first strike in Abaddon's latest campaign, as the forces of Chaos descend upon an Imperial world with Khârn the Betrayer at their head. The Blood Angels stand against them and the scene is set for an epic battle.

Remember when people disagreed with the fact that the 13th Black Crusade was larger and greater than the HH? They got BTFO.

The forces Abaddon commands dwarf anything Horus ever commanded. And on his sides he has mighty legends like Doombreed, Be'lakor. and the Daemon Primarchs/

What does the Imperium have? Nothing. The Loyalist Primarchs are long gone. The Emperor is dying. The Eldar slit their own throats in Death Masque. The Dark Eldar are undergoing their own apocalypse. The imperium sealed the Tau behind a wall of fire. The Necrons have gone silent on a galactic scale. The Orks are smashing into the Imperium.

The imperium stands alone and it won't stand for long.


>> No.49179560


But we're talking 6+ or, at best, 4+ saves. It just feels like even bolters are going to rip any Ork specialist apart.

>> No.49179602

And that's why bodies are key. 5 bolter toting marines can only kill at most 5 orks in a turn. 20+ orks could potentially kill 5 marines faster. Also think cover (and a pretty big lack of 'Ignores Cover'), since you wanna play on a dense board. Infiltrate for objectives, tarpit things with stormboys, and throw dice at them with the boys.

>> No.49179641

Yeah, careful about relying too much on a few models with 5+

Relying on cover gets you killed when people seem to spam flamers. Or that tau guy who had 3 crisis suits with double airbursting fragmentation blasters. Large blasts with ignores cover and AP5 is brutal against armies relying on cover.

At least orders are weaker here, unlike in HoR, where the local IG faggot have all but forced cover ignoring shenanigans, thanks to pushing in the Tau bros who accepted not to bring markerlights at all, into spamming them anyway. Him using a ton of high S, how AP guns with the ignore cover bubble was just plain bullshit, and he was tabling pretty much everybody. Not enough Los blocking terrain, sadly.

You mean the C'tan known as the Deceiver manipulated Abaddon into causing the Gothic War in order to remove the BSF from the board.

This goes into the trash now because it's Oldcron fluff and the C'tan are sharded. The Blackstone Fortresses pose no threat to the Necrons.

The Newcrons disappeared from the scene in end of 999 41K. They might be planning something or maybe they decided to wait out the Apocalypse. We don't know.

Don't tell a Necronfag about his own fluff!

The C'tan shards are mostly feral and dumb. They don't have the brain power to plan huge wars or anything. There is ZERO fluff of C'tan shards being anything else but dumb weapons of war.

Forgot to add that thinking C'tan shards would go after the Blackstone Fortresses is incredibly dumb. What sharded and killed the C'tan were the Necron super weapons. If the C'tan shards were intelligent creatures, they would hunt the tombs that hide these weapons or pursue the Silent King who hid them.

The Blackstone fortresses play no role in the Newcron lore. The C'tan shards caring about them is nonsensical. It's like caring about a needle lost in a haystack when your mortal enemy has a chainsaw on standby.

Yes, nothing changed. Cadia has a massive invasion every hundred years and then gets rebuild.

What the Orks did was of no value.

Ahriman fails as usual.

And C'tan manipulating the scenes and the Warmaster was known since their codex release and the Gothic War storyline.

The only thing that might be counted as a change is Eldrad fate but it was hinted that he not be dead.

Yeah, nothing changed. Everything was going back to the way it was.

>It hasn't changed. The "retellings" are point for point the same as they always were. It's not until eldrad and the talismans themselves show up around cadia that the readers are informed that the necrons have been planning something.

Wrong, wrong. We were told that the C'tan were involved in Codex Oldcrons.

Newcron fluff mention nothing of that or on top of that Eldrad new story has him focusing 100% on Chaos and not focusing on the Necrons at all.

>They are cautious because there is a chance the C'tan shards will break free from bondage and start trying to rule them again.

The Imperium will fall. Perhaps not this century, and perhaps not the next. But it will fall, and Abaddon will be there, boot on the throat of the Emperor’s bloodless corpse. Abaddon will be there the night the Astronomican dies and the Imperium – at last – falls dark.’

Never ever take them with stub-carbines and powerswords, those are a trap.
Between Scout, Infiltrate and Dunestrider these guys can be where you want them to be in a hurry, spreading their debuff und harassing units. Either have them make a nuisance of themselves by hunting backline support and the like or send them into the thick of it and force the enemy to deal with them right now to get rid of the debuff bubble in the middle of his army. Either way your opponent will need to devote troops to handling them, which will leave the rest of your forces with less enemy attention.

So, I wanna get back into 40k using Black Templars. Nothing competitive (maybe later down the road) just wanna play some games with another friend who's getting back into it (he's fielding CSM). What would you guys recommend?

Give them Stubborn. Keep Mark prices roughly the same but improve them. MoN goes to FnP and +1 T, Mark of Khorne goes to +1 A and Furious Charge, Mark of Slaanesh goes to +1 I and Fleet, and Mark of Tzeentch does something more than +1 Invuln (and goes back to 5++ base). Add cost-effective cult equipment. Noise weapons, Khorne chain weapons (probably doing the 30k +1 S thing or giving them Shred or Rending), Plague munitions, magical shit for Tzeentch. Icons that aren't ass and work as Deep Strike homers.

Getting them into position will still be an issue. Drop Pods would be an easy solution, but Rhinos are pretty much fucked as transports for elite units. They could use a new middle ground assault transport.

Well good because you can't do competitive with Black Templars, prepare for the CSM guy to still moan every time you win with crusader squads in Land Raiders though because 'Codex SM' OP.

Chaos have a lot of things that are unique to them. Not just Helldrakes and 5th ed obliterators.

Just like any Imperial army can field Inquisitors to fill in gaps in their armies, so can Chaos.

Uh oh, did I already poison the well by mentioning Chaos allies ?

Especially the most unique ally in the whole game, Renegade and Heretics ?

Oh fuck, sorry. I just to blow my load early. Fuck.

When Khrone demonkin came out I retooled a large portion of my CSM armies to combine with the Bloodletters, fleshhounds and Thirsters.

If NurgleDaemonKin comes out I will have to start investing in Plague Heralds, more Blight Drones, nurglings and a Nurgle Prince or two.

>Easy fixes to make your CSM stand a chance
Drop pods not needed.

Start with taking 5 points of the base cost of every squad with a Champion in it, with the exception of Chaos Havoks.

Cultist Champions may upgrade to Rouge Witches, gaining Psyker 1 and losing 1 attack and LD, for 20 points.

Give Forgefiends and Maulerfiends a "Quadruped" rule that lets them re-roll immobilization results.

Havok Champions have a piece of Wargear called Occulum Mors. It lets his unit fire at full ballistic skill, when normally they would be snap shooting, once per game.

Rhinos and Land Raiders may take vehicle wargear, called Warp Rifts, that allows units to enter from reserves from the vehicle, as though they were disembarking; effected by Assault Vehicle, and similar rules.
The vehicle cannot actually transport units if this upgrade is purchased.
25 points.

While we're on vehicle wargear, Daemonic Possession doesn't eat models on a 6, but you can sacrifice one model inside during the movement phase to restore a hull point.

Raptors down to 16 per model.
Warp Talons down to 27 per model.
Possessed down to 23 per model.
Terminators down to 29 per model.
Khorne Berzerkers and Champions gain 1 attack.
Thousand Sons down to 22 per model.
Warpsmiths down to 100.
Dark Apostles down to 90.
Chaos Lord down to 60.
Daemon Princes down to 140.

VotLW grants Hatred (Imperials) instead of Hatred (Space Marines).
Icons of Vengence go down in price by 5 across the board, to a minimum of 5.

You do realize the vast majority of armies don't have good tranports, right?
Vehicles are shit, unless it's something like eldar. Hell even most SM vehicles are shit. Only reason drop pods are good is because it's deep strike with a few less dangers.

Maybe... assault rails,
Something something world eaters, later adopted by others, upgrade that lets marines treat rhinos as open topped for purposes of assault but in exchange also theat it as open topped for flamers No Escape.

Every marine player ever.

They are somehow WORSE than Tau when it comes to this.

I play Necrons, and the Tau players all love tried to open the can that my army is. It is great watching them poor so much combined fire dakka into a single unit, and see who the dice favours.

The relentless grav spamming faggotmarines use a few units to shoot at me, realize he cannot kill the entire unit on turn 1, and then gives up, before declining all future games with me.

Fucking neckbeard manchildren. But at least they save me the hassle of finding a polite way to turn down games, with the boring and predictable players, who are invariably marine players.

When can chaos get assault crafts. Space marines have so many assault crafts its not fair.

>> No.49183786

I want him here.
It does get really tiring to see CSM players whine and whine about how they aren't just spikey loyalists. Why the fuck should space marine players like me have to end up in the postion that chaos is currently in: the power armor codex with less options?
It seems like most chaos players don't want chaos solutions, they just want marine stuff. In that case, why not just play C:SM. People like al'kaps are little bitches who need to fuck off. If he wants pods and marine stuff so much, just play loyalists. If he wants chaos, then ask for fucking chaos solutions, not loyalist ones.

i was even nice to him on his first turn, he tried to target the kroot first as he knew o'vesa was in 2+ cover, but when i told him he can only wound kroot on 6+ because of graviton he had a bit of a panic, even though he already declared he was shooting (and already rolled to hit) the kroot, i gave him the offer of shooting o'vesa or ob'lotai (the rest of the eight were deepstriking), he chose o'vesa

>People want Chaos Marine solutions for their Chaos Marine armies.
Really? I didn't realize grav and drop pods were chaos solutions? Pods have absolutely no mention AFAIK in the most recent dex, and grav, not graviton, is distinctly loyalists. Moreover, marines rely on superfriends to win tournaments. If loyalists can do it why not chaos?

I'll never understand why people are against weak codices getting more options. Or any codex getting more options for variety for that matter.

First of all, no one has mentioned grav at all except as a throwaway "hurr what else will you chaosfags steal from us loyalists"
Second of all, grav existed during the horus heresy
Thirdly, the most recent chaos marine dex is nearly 4 years old at this point; and there are multiple mentions of chaos using drop pods in books, lore, older codexes, white dwarf...
Fourth, chaos marines can't even do superfriends because of the daemonic instability special rule preventing them from joining their non-fw battle brothers (and what utility would you get from putting t3 humans in your chaos marine units?)

And in my opinion, chaos should get grav. But it shouldn't have the same rules as SM grav. it should be special warp corrupted grav that instead of the wounds on armor save does more hits against bigger guys to help CSM actually do something against monstrous creatures.
