Looking for advice for getting from 1250 to 1500.
Wasn't looking to pick up 'Greenwing' stuff but definetly making a proper Ravenwing Strikeforce would probably help.
Will have to take bodies away from the Biker Squads but I still don't know if I will have the points for the Mace of Redemption Interrogator Chaplain on a Bike.
Would a Lvl 2 Librarian or a ServoHarness Techmarine be a better, cheaper experience. (Obviously put on a bike)
So I took the advice that was given to me a couple months ago and dropped my Deathwing Knights for the Ven Dread.
Since then I also beefed up the regular Bike Squads and added Attack Bikes to them so now I can combat squad them out of the formation.
The extra 250pts since the 1000pts I started with has been better.
Having a lot more bodies has helped my army a lot.
Mostly playing against my Dark Eldar, Tyranid and Imperial Fists.
I have my first match against CSM this weekend and I know he plays a nurgle based army so hopefully we will get a good game in.
This is the 1250pt list I am bringing for our game.

Deathwing Strike Force

Terminator Armour Librarian (130pts)
>Foe Smiter, Force Axe

Five Deathwing Command Squad Terminators (250pts)
>Cyclone Missile Launcher, Deathwing Apothecary, Deathwing Company Banner

Venerable Dreadnought (160pts)
>Multi-Melta, Powerfist, Drop Pod

Ravenwing Attack Squadron #(310pts)

6-man Ravenwing Bike Squad and an Attack Bike (235pts)
>2 Grav Gun, Combi-Grav, Heavy Bolter on the Attack Bike

Ravenwing Land Speeder (75pts)
>Typhoon Missile Launcher

Ravenwing Attack Squadron #2(115pts)

Ravenwing Attack Bike (55pts)

Ravenwing Land Speeder (60pts)

Ravenwing Attack Squadron #3(285pts)

6-man Ravenwing Bike Squad and an Attack Bike (235pts)
>2 Grav Gun, Combi-Grav, Heavy Bolter on the Attack Bike

Ravenwing Land Speeder (50pts)
>Heavy Bolter

This is quite surprising, as I thought this would happen.

Think about it.

Abaddon gets there, just about to kill Emperor, then the Prophecy of BA is fufilled and it's Sanguinius, Horus is nearly killed but flees. So instead of a quick strike, he's forced to enter a protracted war where he's already used his element of surprise.

So it would essentially revert to the status quo, instead of "1 min to Midnight" it'll be forever on "Midnight" now.

Makes sense.

SoS don't exist in 40k and Custodes don't do any fighting, they're ceremonial. Therefore these rules cannot be applied to them in 40k.

I may get a game in this weekend. This may be my silliest army experiment yet.

++Black Crusade Detachment [Primary]++
+Chaos Warband+

Disc Lord of Tzeentch w/ Sigil, Powerfist/Lightning Claw, Scrolls of Magnus & Spell Familiar - 235 [Warlord]

Bike Sorcerer w/ ML 3 & Last Memory, Spell Familiar, Force Axe & Bolt Pistol - 175

2x Chaos Space Marines: 5 Marines, Meltagun, Champion w/ Combi-Melta, and Rhino w/ Dirgecaster - 135 x 2 = 270

2x Chaos Terminators w/ Combi-Melta/Power-Axe, and Champion w/ Combi-Flamer/Powerfist - 122 x 2 = 244

2x Chaos Bikers w/ 2 Bike-Mounted Meltaguns, and Champ w/ Power Axe - 105 x 2 = 210

2x Helbrutes w/ Plasma Cannon: 110 x 2 = 220

+Spawn Auxiliary+
2 Spawn - 60

++Daemons CAD++
HQ: Herald of Tzeentch on Disc w/ ML 3 and Paradox - 145

HQ: The Blue Scribes - 81

Troops: 10 Horrors - 90

Troops: 3 Nurglings - 45

Fast Attack: 3 Screamers - 75

Total: 1850

Battle-Plan: The Lord and Sorcerer have the option to either start in the Spawn unit, or in Bike units, or run solo, depending on terrain distribution/enemy weapons; the Spawn are "in case of Grav", while Bikes are "otherwise". The Herald starts in the Screamer unit, while Blue Scribes rolls Malefic. He'll use his Jetbike status to move-cast-turbo.

I took a Disc rather than a Bikelord of Nurgle mostly for "fluff", but the extra attack is nice, and Jetbike moves are handy; being able to move over enemy models lets me avoid "Bubblewrap" scenarios. In a pinch, it lets him Turbo for objectives too. The Scrolls of Magnus/Familiar was because I didn't want to buy a "second" sorcerer, that was outside the BC detachment. 60 points is still effectively cheaper than the 95 points one would spend on getting an extra ML 1 Psyker with Bike and Spell Familiar.

One thing I'm contemplating is dropping the screamers. This gives 90 points, of which 45 can go towards replacing the Nurglings with a 2nd unit of Horrors, and letting me fiddle around with more options. Thoughts?

Warmaster's primarily about public relations.

If not horus, it would have been sanguinius. If not sanguinius, he probably would have left it to malcador because robute and rogal (the next best choices) trigger the autist primarchs to much.

>> No.49788420

Also, my Sorcerer rolls Ectomancy for "Move" spells. I don't mind Last Memory's costing me a Psychic Focus in this case. Since Chaos doesn't get Hit and Run, I'd rather a power that lets me target enemies in close combat.

One thing I'm contemplating is that the Screamers themselves don't do too much on their own, but they're a threatening summon, especially if brought from Incursion.

If I drop the Screamers, I get 75 points to work with. 45 points lets me turn the Nurglings into a second unit of Horrrors, leaving me 30 points. 18 points lets me add a Horror to both units, while another 12 points let me give my Bikers the Mark of Slaanesh; if I did this, I would replace the Champ Power-Axes with Lances. The main drawback to this would be my Lord is stuck with the Spawn due to incompatible Marks, and my Herald would have to lurk in a Horror unit until I found it safe enough for him to split off, or I got a Screamer unit ready for him.

"Had he been the first one he'd found, Jonson believed he would have been the Warmaster. The Lion believed that Horus would inevitably be defeated and that the Emperor would need to choose a new Warmaster very quickly if the Great Crusade was to continue. He asked for Perturabo's support. The two Primarchs reached an understanding -- Jonson granted permission for the Iron Warriors to take possession of the siege guns at their convenience -- on one condition, of course. Perturabo raised an eyebrow, inquisitively. Jonson made his brother promise that the siege weapons would be put to good use. Of that, Perturabo assured, they most certainly would be utilised in that regard. "

Not that anon, but the biggest issue with the Ta'unar is that it's too cheap and is a gargantuan creature instead of a super-heavy vehicle, which is a buff. The shield system is probably the cheesiest thing about it though, since it negates deathblows like that.

But I think the worst thing is that it's better geared at taking down regular armies than other titans. In a titan vs titan fight it would probably lose, even with the new array, but in a super heavy vs. standard list it would slaughter the opposition so it's better in the hands of a cheese player. Regardless though I doubt anyone here would play against it without their own titan to fight against it, which would probably beat the ta'nar unless you're playing orks or tyranids, but that's not really a shock, is it?

To be honest, any of the Baneblade variants probably won't do as well as Knight or Titan will if you're fighting another Titan, Super-Heavy Walker or Gargantuan Creature.

Even the Shadowsword can have some difficulty given it's only a Large Blast D weapon with one shot on a platform that is likely as good as wrecked if that enemy Titan, Super-Heavy Walker or Gargantuan Creature should reach it.

One advantage to them is, unlike Knights and Titans, they can't be locked in combat or tar-pitted, not that this hampers Knights or Titans much when they can have D strength close combat and Stomp attacks.

Nah, the Deathblow reduction isn't cheese, because it has it instead of void shields.

Lose 3+D3 wounds on a 10 wound model, lose your invul to the end of the turn? You aren't surviving two of those, and it's easier to wound after if you hit it with the D first.

Meanwhile a unit with Void Shields such as a Warhound? Can survive several D hits if they aren't removed first, and they're spare hull points that grow back.

Ta'unar is undercosted for sure, but specifically having a "half one Deathblow" gimmick isn't the worst aspect of it by any stretch.

They were involved in Medusa V, a conflict against an insurrection to Imperial rule near Armageddon and it's believed the Minervan Tank Legions are descended from an Armageddon regiment that was awarded the world of Minerva as a Right of Conquest after a pitched battle against a Chaos Sorcerer and his renegade warband.

They're also active in the Armageddon sector as I believe one of their artillery regiments was on Minerva during the recent conflict where they inscribed every shell with the name of a Maytr from Hive Hades, hoping to earn the slain a measure of vengeance.

Houserule 2:
Tau Armor equals toughness+4=side armor
side armor+1=front armor

Houserule 3:
No D-weapons in non-apocalypse games. I actually like the Eldar D-template just because I saw someone model their wraithguard to look like maids with vacuum cleaners. But that hardly makes them fair.

The fighting takes place in the Ash Wastes, Equatorial Jungles and at the gates and ruins of Hive Cities.

Most of the Armageddon continents are Ash Wastes and this is where the majority of the fighting takes place. Most of the Hive Cities are heavily industrialized for the purpose of cranking out, among other things, armaments.

As for the trench warfare, that isn't easy to accomplish on Armageddon unless it's likely surrounding a Hive City.

One does not wish to hang out in the Ash Wastes, which are volatile and virtually inhospitable.

They're also heavily infested with Orks, as many of the Ork Rok landing sites are found there.

In addition, roving bands of Orks, Speed Freaks, Dakkajet-Bomma skwadrons and Stompa Mobs are rampaging in the Ash Wastes (in fact at one point the Stompas were so numerous that Sentinel Teams had to be equipped towards hunting the over-sized scrap totems down).

>What is a simple change that prevents any and all 2+ re-rollable invuln saves? One which doesn't have some clunky ultra-specific "re-rolled dice only succeed on X" rule
Make it so that any rerolled save (or Feel no Pain or Resurrection Protocol) can only succeed on a 4+ or worse. Yes, it's clunk, but there's not really a better way to do it. I guess you could have any save (or Feel no Pain or Resurrection Protocol) that would a 2+ rerollable is instead a 3+ rerollable.

Rather than convert MC/GC's to vehicles, just unfuck their pricing and durability. The big issue with the Riptide is that it's undercosted and that it's so durable as to be immune to small arms fire. It takes something retarded like 500 boltgun shots to kill a 'tide on average. MC are supposed to trade a vehicle's immunity to weapons below a certain strength threshold for not having to worry about the Vehicle Damage Chart. Drop the save to a 3+, drop a wound or two, don't let it buy the Feel No Pain, and make it choose between the Thrust Move OR the Invuln OR a second main gun. Or just jack the price way up. Stormsurge just needs a slight price bump and a couple core changes to the rules.

You also need to unfuck the Markerlight Chart. 2 ML for Ignore's Cover is too much. Make it something like 1 ML for -1 to Cover Saves and 2 additional ML per additional point of cover reduction.

Eldar? Bikes go back to 1 in 3 for weapons, WK goes up at least 100 points, Distort weapons lose the D.

You completely missed Space Marines. Double the cost of Drop Pods, remove the free shit component of Gladius (give it something else, maybe some army-wide buff based on whether the Warlord is a Captain or a Librarian or a Chaplain), completely rework Grav Weapons. Make them entirely dedicated to killing big monsters or vehicles, with weaker secondary use as killing heavy infantry. Or something else, just as long as they aren't the best gun for every purpose.

Personally, I like the idea of the Riptide's Nova reactor being an automatic success for the turn, at the cost of burning out that subsystem for the next turn. For example, activating the Nova Shield gives the Riptide a 3++ for that turn alone, but prevents the Riptide from having **any** Invulnerable Save in the next turn, etc. For the Riptide Wing, the Networked Reactor Array lets a nearby Riptide suffer the Burnout effect instead.

I personally feel that would give it more of a "timing" tactical incentive, rather than it being "I'm always going to roll Nova Shield except on the one turn when I am in range for Hailfire."

Moving on to the core rules.

Units can only contain units from a single faction. No more retarded super-friends shenanigans.

Completely rework Stomps. I'd just make it a a single attack at half strength with no AP against every model in base contact. Then just make it so that Super-Heavies can always just choose to walk away from non-Super-Heavy combatants, but it provokes a single free auto-attack from each model they're walking away from.

D weapons only roll on the D chart against Super-Heavies. Against everything else they're just a Strength 10 hit that causes D3 wounds/+1 on the damage chart.

Change up how scoring works. Objective Secured is gone. All non-vehicle units are scoring, unless an enemy model is within 3" of the objective.

Slight alteration to dangerous terrain. It goes back to armor saves allowed, unless you are a bike, a jet bike, or a cavalry unit. Vehicles never lose a hullpoint from dangerous terrain and only suffer from Immobilization on an additional roll of a 1, otherwise they just stop moving for that turn.

Artillery loses the dumb "the whole unit is T7 thing." I'm not sure how to compensate to prevent artillery crews from just getting massacred on the first turn. Maybe let other same-faction units crew them?

Do some balance work on psychic powers. Invisibility needs nerfed, pyromancy needs buffed. While I was at it, I would add the astartes powers to the core list, and then bust each discipline down to a much more tightly focused D3 table. Rolling for random powers is okay as long as you can at least have a rough idea of what your psyker will get. As they are now, most disciplines is an arbitrary assortment of witchfires and blessings and the occasional malediction. Probably just can Conuration powers entirely.

There's more, especially, for the other codexes, but this seems like more than anyone will care to read.

>the mordians in particular seem ill suited for such a conflict

In once instance they were used to rally the Hive Citizens for the defense of their city alongside them.

In some cases this was through press-ganging.

As a result, they quickly ran afoul of some of the more devious elements of Hive society and many a Mordian Guardsmen failed to return from their task.

> do you know if the yarrick books are worth reading if im interested in the armaggeddon war/steel legion or are they mainly just bout yarrick and his vendetta against ghazghull?

A few of those pertain to his time battling other foes, such as Chaos and Tau infiltrators.

However, the core of them are dedicated to his battles against Ghazghkull Mad Thraka.

Its a cool idea but to be honest i feel less is more here, the packs on the front of the chest look kinda cool but on the shoulder pads and the backpack it looks a little silly, like hes been turned into some sherpa. it probably would look better if you could move them to the thigh armour. that atleast makes more sense as well. i cant really imagine him trying to grab ammo off of his pauldrons and backpack, too impractical.
not trying to judge hard or anything just some constructive criticism

>> No.49791292

I kinda actually want it to look completely ridiculous. Like someone who has been told that he's going down to a planet to operate on there for like a week, but because he's a a genre savy bastard, he packed 2000 extra bullets because he knows the week long operation is going to get extended for a whole year.

Having bullets in your pauldrons isn't really for you though. They're much easier to get to if you're one of his squadmates. I have a buddy in the marines who describes to me how he likes to pack shitloads of extra ammo, and he just has his squadmates pat him on the shoulder whenever they take a mag from him in mid firefight.

>> No.49791312

The Space Wolves stuff that seems to have been announced for HH so far all seems to be closer to fluff Space Wolves rather than tabletop Space Wolves. In other words more like actual Space Vikings rather than The Wolves Of Wolfity Wolfness that they have become in tabletop. Will they hopefully bring this change over to 40k, too and not just 30k? Making everything too wolflike make Space Wolves just look goofy rather than the badass Space Vikings thing that initially got them so much love from fans. Yeah the whole "the wolves are actually mutated humans since there are no wolves on Fenris" thing makes it a bit more intriguing, but even then that doesn't account for just how much the focus has turned the guys into Space Furries at this point.

You don't even need to wait for Thousand Sons technically. A CSM Cyclopia Cabal combined with Tzeentch Daemons is VERY powerful. But waiting for Thousand Sons will probably give even more options for the CSM side other than just sorcerors.

Another reason I would also say to wait is that currently if you would go Nurgle your only real options for the CSM side is still Nurgle Biker Lord with more bikers which is still just inferior to the SM biker tactics and thus not all that Chaos.

I'd stick the commissar elsewhere; he gets more use where people can use his leadership and stubborn, and the vets will definitely get better use from it, especially if they're gonna be on the frontlines with those meltas.

Don't be afraid to stick some scary assault unit in your land raider either; it'll draw fire away from the chimeras with big bad meltas, and ideally what you put in the land raider won't be completely helpless without the land raider. Loving the Chaplain in there for example.

Looks like a good start, I don't think you could go wrong with more Templar and maybe a Leman Russ or two. With an Executioner or Punisher for example, your opponent would probably feel claustrophobic pretty fast, and if he chooses to deal with those and potentially let even one chimera with 3 meltas through the cracks it could be his doom

You retard, warmaster was all about running the Great Crusade. The high lords of Terra were created for PR and government. Thus, it was more about tactical genius and not who everyone liked the best. Horus and The Lion were considered the two most skilled tacticians (Although Dorn, Guilliman, Khan, and Sanguinius all were potential candidates as well) in the end it came down to Horus and The Lion. Horus being the Emprah's favorite obviously got the job, much to the chagrin of the other Primarchs. The Lion, oddly enough, was rather quiet on the subject. Although he tried to make a play for Warmaster after the HH got going. Supposedly, Guilliman even admitted that Horus and The Lion were the the only ones that were really worthy to be warmaster.

Sounds good

This is gone for a reason

This rule was thought so this army was for beginners to go easy on the new blood and should stay like that

Fair enough but I think this is more to prevent scoring drop pods and that would be solve easily if they got FAQed into not being able to be scoring

Thousand Sons are already one of the worst units in the game. Shit can't get any worse for them. inb4 hurr what if they make them a billion points each with WS/BS1?!?! Even if all I get out of this release is the ability to take a Sorcerer and a single squad as an Allied Detachment for my Tzeentch Daemons, that's still a massive improvement over the current system.

For all the shit that KDK gets, and rightfully so, for not altering the CSM statlines at all, if you're going to be running pure Khorne CSM anyways, KDK offers a pretty substantial boost over baseline CSM. All CSM really offer for Khorne is the Axe of Blind Fury, and it's easy enough to ally in a Juggerlord if they really want it.
I don't really play KDK, but here's what I'd do to try to fix them without completely rewriting their book:
>all CSM squads get their Marks, Champion, and CCW's for free; this drops the basic 8-man CSM squad to 104 points, Berzerkers are dropped to 128 and get free Chain-axes
>War Engines get a formation, 2+ Daemon Engines, grants the following benefits; sixes to hit in melee or with non-blast/template shooting weapons generate an additional hit, any template or blast weapon that inflicts three or more wounds may be immediately fired up to one more time that turn
>Defiler bumped up to AV13 and six attacks
>Detachment gains the Command Benefit "Eager for Battle: Non-monstrous creature units from this formation treat all vehicles as Assault Vehicles after the first turn and may declare charges on the same turn that they arrive from Deep Strike"

>> No.49794582

Multiple people with literal 100% accuracy have told us that new Rubrics are coming. Ignore shitposters on /tg/.

>> No.49794697

New rubicaes are coming, that's a fact, just don't expect them to become crazy good, who knows perhaps they even get an ye old wraithvision kind of rules to nerf them even further.

The best you'll get will be shooting and CC version and I don't believe they'll get the CC option.

His point was that even though Khorne Berzerkers were made better, they remained useless. Anon is assuming the same will apply to Thousand Sons. The best case for Thousand Sons (the unit) is they become tax as part of a really powerful formation.

The new formations and rules will probably just mean more powerful daemons, cultists and/or Sorcerers if Daemonkin and the lates CSM releases are anything to go off.

>> No.49795569

Not terribly so. At least when compared to Kairos, Belakor (providing 2+ r-erollable Jink saves) and 3 Tzeentch Princes.

But even if you include 2 Chaos Knights in your list, it is still going to be shit if you also include 1000 pts worth of Orks.
