Any fellow Dark Angels players that could rate this list for an upcoming match versus Tau. I am not expecting anything bigger than a Ghostkeel but definetly a Commander, ~9 Crisis Suits and probably some broadsides. Not sure what he has up his sleeve as this is my largest match against him.

Lions Blade Detachment:

Core- Demi Company

Chaplain - 105
>Jump Pack

6x Assault Marines - 102
>Jump Packs

5x Devastator Marines - 200
>4 Missile Launchers

3x5 Tactical Marines - 145 ea
>Razorback w/ Twin Linked Assault Cannons

Auxillery- Ravenwing Attack Squadron

Ravenwing Attack Bike - 55
>Multi-Melta

Ravenwing Land Speeder - 75
>2 Multi-Meltas

Ravenwing Strike Force:

Librarian (Warlord) - 110
>Level 2, Bike

Librarian - 110
>Level 2, Bike

Techmarine - 115
>Servo-Harness, Meltabombs, Power Axe, Bike

Ravenwing Command Squad - 250
>5 Black Knights, Apothecary, Ravenwing Banner

5 Ravenwing Black Knights - 200

2x3 Ravenwing Bikers - 120 ea
>2 Grav Gun, Combi-Grav

1997/2000

We will most likely be playing a Maelstrom Mission so I am hoping my bikes can be a big enough threat for the demi-company to go and hold objectives.
I am probably going overboard with the biker HQs but I wanted to take advantage of the psychic phase (rolling on Interromancy) while still having a smashy character in the command squad. I couldn't squeeze in the Interrogator Chaplain.
Still I could drop a RW HQ and some Meltabombs for another MSU Grav squad (or maybe 3 Black Knights)
I am not fielding any Darkshrouds to cut back on the cheese since he wasn't going to field any big suits.

The Start Collecting set is a good deal that saves a bunch of cash, and gives you a legal (but rather shitty) starting army when combined with the troops you already have. I'd recommend it anyway because it'd give you a bit of variety for a Kill Team list and you can easily scrape up about 200 point between a small squad of Warriors in the Raider supported by Reavers.

That said if you don't feel ready to commit that much cash at once you can hold off. Try to play a few starter games and see how much you enjoy it.

Why do Yiffs hate the thought of Russ being the one to want to hunt down Magnus/being the one to trick the Emperor into allowing him to hunt him down, rather than Horus? The original fluff had it so that Russ convinced the Emperor to let him slay Magnus instead of bring him in, iirc. I actually think that's cooler than Horus telling Russ that the mission's changed, and to kill Magnus instead of arrest him.

For millionth time. From the novel,b Horus told Russ that Magnus was beyond saving. Russ tried to arrest Magnus anyways. He didn't want to kill him because he was his brother and nobody loved him more.

When Russ arrived he had his men do what they were orderted to do. His men set out destroying the city and its stores of heretical knowledge. An order from the Emprah and punishment for Magnus.

The Thousand Sons couldn't bear seeing the destruction of their precious knowledge so they disobeyed Magnus's order of standing down and attacked the SPESS Wolves. As this was happening, Tzeentch reactivated the Flesh Change, causing the TS to turn into spawn right in front of the Imperials which damned even more in the eyes of the Imperium.

Magnus could no longer stand seeing his legion getting butchered so he changed his mind over letting himself captured. He embraced sorcery and attacked the Woofs. This forced Russ to engage him and bring him down. Despite Russ later words about the fight, the downed Magnus noted that tears formed in Russ's eyes indicating that he felt sorrow at what he is about to do. He wanted to take his beloved brother back alive but now his brother was truly lost to the madness of sorcery. He had to put down.

So...who is to blame here?

I seriously hope you're not his deluded. The reason Russ went for the kill was because he was completely outmatched and was getting blown the fuck out.

Seriously Russfag be honest. Magnus was single handedly holding back the Custodes, SoS and SW army during the duel. He had Russ dead to rights when Russ's familiars attacked and then it took Russ gettinga 'lucky' strike to give him an opening. However Magnus during this whole fight was casting his greatest spell to get the remaining TS off Prospero and save his library.

I am not dodging anything nor I am fan of woofs. I am just correcting the whole "Russ was duped by Horus". Horus's words didn't change Russ's mind over arresting Magnus. It was the situation on the ground and what he saw that made him see that Magnus was lost forever.

No, you didn't. You went into a fight analysis when I was talking about what happened after it.

When Russ had fucking madness broken before him and was having an internal struggle about what to do with him. In the end, Russ reasoned that Magnus was lost and had to die. Before the final blow was struck, Magnus tore open hole and flung himself, his legion, and the woofs 13th company into the Eye of Terror where Tzeentch's word is law.

So in the end, Magnus choose to save his "Thousand Sons" over answering for his crimes in front of the Emperor and remaining loyal.

Tzeentch showed him his future where he is a withered corpse strapped to a blazing throne forced to endure an eternity of pain. So this makes me think that him deciding not to get arrested wasn't entirely for his sons sake.

Russ yelled at a demon for a little while. His action were to show up and immediately carpet bomb an Imperial world that had their defenses down. I cant imagine why the TS would fight back with all they had after that can you? Besides justifying your action because of what you forced someone to do is asinine.

You play Orks for the fun of it. Of course, you could say the same for every faction, and if everyone had this view, the game would be a lot better. The difference is that you simply cannot break the game with Orks, whereas you can with the top factions.

There can be benefits to this. For starters, you will NEVER see someone across the table from you roll their eyes at the sight of your army and sigh. You will NEVER cop flack for playing Orks; on the contrary, people are downright keen to fight you because they so rarely see Orks, and they know they're not going to be facing some bullshit allied combo or ridiculous psychic power, or even an underpriced Super-Heavy. it's going to be a good old fashioned scrap, and the fact that they have an overwhelming advantage no matter the army they field is also a morale boost for them, be it subconscious or not.

You also have complete freedom. Want to field all Walkers? Go for it! Want a horde of Grots scampering forwards? Right on! The advantage of being a dog-shit tier codex is that you can field pretty much whatever you like and your effectiveness doesn't really diminish. So just go with whatever you like.

Now, that being said, if you want to focus on what's effective, here's a short list:

MANZ (preferably in Bully Boyz formation)
Mek Guns
Biker Boyz
Lootas
Warboss with Mega Armour and Lucky Stikk
Grots for troops slots

This metaphor is terrible. Magnus was to be brought back to Terra but Russ listened to Horus's orders over the Emperors and ruined what could have been salvaged. There was no third time there was this time and it was bungled. If it was to be an arrest thats not how you go about it. It's the equivalent of an American cop arresting a black man by yelling STOP RESISTING as he beats him to death.

My meta is some sort of bizarro world. I play Orks and have been called a min-maxing try hard by a few people. The primary complaint is about warbikers.

For the most part, they're new players, or people that have been "in" the game for a while but don't actually play many games. We usually play Maelstrom missions and for the most part I keep the bikers alive via boost+jink to snag objectives. That and they make tactical or positioning errors that I capitalize on.

I try to help by basically giving them tactics to counter my army, but they usually just get pissed about my shit being "OP". Hell, I've been told that Ork shooting is too good. Granted it was a Space Yiff player that marched his dudes through an open space with no cover in wide view of tankbustas and lootas.

Guy that runs the LGS doesn't help much either. He's always bitching about "cheese" and browbeats Tau, Skitarii, and Eldar players (even the friendly ones) to the point that they don't want to play or intentionally build terrible lists to avoid being labeled a tryhard.

Sounds like your meta is a bunch of shit.

I play sisters mostly, and I remember my first encounter with Grav Cents after I came back from a long break. It legit almost made me stop playing because it was bullshit.

Anyway, I'm not sure for CSM. Havoks are the 5/5 small blast, yes. They're also twin linked (reroll scatter) and 48" range. Obviously, they don't deal with Cents. They're not very good at melee, so you can tar pit them pretty easily, which is my usual plan with sisters, just watch for the Librarian obviously. Otherwise, plasma or a DP with a Mace I guess. Roll Bio and smash them with him.

You can mass a lot of sorcerers to counter their Librarians, and you guys can go to ML3, unlike them. The Sorcerer Cabal is really good, which is in the Black Legion supplement iirc.

I had made an OC DOUGHNUT STEEL Chapter based on BA and it makes me feel dirty now.

It was just a regular successor chapter, but the Chapter Masters are all Chaplains before being elevated. They search for a cure to The Black Rage. This means they work with Corbulo a lot. This has lead them to basically loot any archeotech they can find in the hopes it has a solution. This has, both fortunately and unfortunately, attracted a Inquisitor Ordo Xenos to them and it's a constant battle to not give in to either Red Thirst or Black Rage. Which is why Chaplains lead it. Since they can keep the DC in control.

Not that I painted shit. I just like BA but I couldn't really justify them doing all that shit.

I want Ghaz to be big. If rumours are right, Abaddon is getting a new model. So I expect Ghaz to get one too. His model is cool, but he's just too small. He needs to be big. I've always wanted Orks to have Big'un Warboss. Which is basically a massive Warboss. +1S +1T +1W statline. Make it an upgrade option. Though this means it cannot go on a bike or some shit and gets Very Bulky. So you can run your OC Boss as a big guy. It's always the worst thing about the rules. You can't factor in stuff like characters being bigger than others and so on.

The guy you were arguing with, wasn't me, but I'll agree, that I'd rather have more specalised than versatile squads. That is mostly based on experience of my marines, so your point with guardsman being flimsy may be very valid.
I, too, think that I'm week on the troop side, but dropping a Wyvern wouldn't do me any good, since I can only buy normal guardsman in a platoon which costs at minimum 130 points, the cost of two Wyverns. Alternatively dropping a Wyvern gets me a single Veteran squad with either a mortar or a heavy bolter. I think a Wyvern will be both more surviveable and putting out more damage than that.

FLGS is having a 850 points, no Unbound/Allies/Named Characters/Lord of War/Titankiller tourney this weekend. Unsure about how to interpret the vehicle rule:

"Allowed are up to 4 vehicles or monstrous creatures, 2 of which with a maximum armor of 11 or 4 or more wounds"

Does that mean things like Land Raiders are fair game, as long as I don't bring more than 2 (as if that'd be possible)? And the wording with "maximum of 4 or more wounds" is also pretty fucking weird.

the issue isnt so much of lacking obsec, its just lacking unit count

This is fucking atrocious. So many bread-and-butter, iconic units can't even be fielded because they have exactly 4 wounds or 12 armor ANYWHERE, no matter what vehicle it is. These limitations are pretty much worse than Kill Teams vehicle rules, and that one is meant to be an infantry game.

What the hell are steel rain focused chapters even supposed to run? Or any vehicle-based ones that would normally field something like a single dreadnought at least? Hell, Imperial Guard basically has no choice but to go meat-wall with mortars.

just threw together a list of the idea

Librarian (ML3, hammer, stormbolter, liber daemonica)

Purifier squad (4 sword 4 incin 2 hammer)

strike squad (2 psilencer 8 sword, tp homer, rhino with storm bolter)

Interceptor sqaud (Incin, hammer, 3 sword, homer)
Interceptor sqaud (Incin, hammer, 3 sword, homer)

Dreadknight (heavy incin + psycannon, greatsword, teleporter)

1500 points on the dot, the strike squad and purifiers split into combat squads, giving me 14 base psychic dice, the rhino can move pretty fast with the amount of snapfire shots it can shit out with the stike squads inside

the librarian and grand master would be with the purifiers, i could swap the strike squad for terminators and have the GM join them instead, but i prefer more models and paladins are out of the question cost wise

Yes but if I shoot something, I want to count that my target is dead or neutralized enough to being no threat to my battleplan anymore.

This is why I usually used 2 squads of meltavets in 5th edition to scrap a single rhino/razorback. And usually I had either 3rd meltasquad in range or Hydra hovering on the background to finish the job that my dice had utterly failed.

Consistency is a very big thing in this game and a factor most players shrug off. But it hasnt ever failed me to apply some good'ol overkill on anything so stuff that needs to die, dies.

If I really absolutely need that tank gone now, I can focus it down with more than the melta squad. Apart from the Wyverns everything in this list could at least theoretically hurt AV 12. But I don't think overcommiting is a good thing either. As said before, one pen is enough to disable the enemy tank for one turn. I think it would do me more good focusing on scoring objectives and shooting more immediate threats, than to ensure that thing is really, really dead.
Also my reasoning behind takeing one plasma, one melta squad was that the meltas would proof most efficent against vehicles, while still being able to hurt MCs and vice versa for the plasma.

You should try if you can't find the answer. You don't need to tell them right off the bat that it's for a conversion to directly copy a model of theirs; you can spin it as a "unique" house-rules conversion if interrogated.

I would imagine they'd have the dimensions on file, in case they ever had to make the model again, or just for record keeping, perhaps even for customer support.

Good luck.

The people in my meta love big, tanky models. Taking down a Daemon Prince or Unclean One is pretty great, not to mention bursting away Tyranid MCs turn one.

The Soul Glaive is really just habit, I suppose it would go better on the GM but Reroll to hit and wound makes a 3 vs 4 to hit rather irrelevant. Plus psychic fuckery means he can get really Killy really fast.

The Boneshard is a hit or miss, if I'm playing Daemons the GM is basically unkillable (especially Khorne), but if it's something else than sure it's useless, but 10 pts. is an okay risk for me.

These are my current warriors, having trouble with a few things, mainly thinning my paints (my pallet isn't very good, I dont know if you need a specific pallet paper for it or not), the metallic paints on my guns (WHY THE FUCK IS THIS NEW PAINT SO WATERY I LEAVE FOR 4 YEARS AND COME BACK AND ALL THE METALS ARE HALF WATER HALF PAINT) and im having trouble painting flesh (tried with one guy and failed miserably if you can see him)

Also is my edge highlighting okay? Feel like its pretty shit but its hard getting that good edge on. Probably going to redo some of the models today.

My friend said that a techmarine from a loyal space marine chapter would be very conflicted fighting against a cult mechanicus group.

My argument is that although Techmarines are loyal to the Omnissiah, their primary loyalty is to their brothers first, as they as Space Marines first and Techmarines second.

My friend's argument is that Techmarines are split between their loyalty to the Omnissiah and to their brothers, which is why Techmarines are often outcasts in their Chapters.

That last bit is almost verbatim from the codex.
Which allegiance outweights the other is hard to say.
Decide on a case to case basis.
If the Mechanicus puts their own interests over that of the Imperium at large, I have no doubt a Techmarine is not gonna be too conflicted.
If the Chapter is gonna have to destroy technology, which the Mechanicus tries to protect they are probably not gonna be happy.

This is exactly what is happening in our campaign.

There is an STC on a planet that has rapidly growing Tyranid and Ork armies on it. The planet has an STC, but it also has nuclear reaction bases that can be used to destroy most of the planet.

The Cult Mechanicus are trying to keep the planet alive because there is an STC on it and they can't carry it off world.

The Space Marines were told to activated the on-surface nuclear facilities self-destruct codes to kill everything on the planet (Tyranid and Ork infestations rapidly growing).

Where would the Space Marine techmarine (Ultramarines, to be exact) put his loyalty in a situation like this? I know it's a hard question to answer.

>> No.50235232

>>50235139
You're both right, but the Techmarine would side with his brothers unless there was either some sort of inter-chapter civil war like that of the Moirae Schism. It would be extremely unlikely for any of them to be fighting against Cult Mech in the first place, unless the chapter were Hereteks/Excommunicate Traitoris, in which case the Techmarine would likely side with the loyalist portion of the chapter and fight alongside the Cult Mechanicus.

But yeah, Techmarines are outcasts in their chapters, and even more so in 30k.

A Techmarine is basically that really smart guy from your high school circle of friends that went to some super good college and got a really fucking good education while the rest of your clique stuck together through college, being in the same clubs and shit, who then eventually comes back after college and really missed you guys but you just kind of moved on with things and he tries to get back into the group real hard but doesn't really fit too well anymore because he was away for too long but would still help his original high school bros out rather than the guys from his college, while also most likely getting full support of his old friends if anyone tried to trouble him.

Unless your high school friends were huge fucking asshats all along and you were just happy to get the fuck out of there but had to move back after finishing education and ran into these fuckers again and you end up working in the same company, like it or not, even if they couldn't really stand you either.

So I'm in a tough spot with my roommate/fwb/it's complicated.

She's not only not a gamer but is hostile to me gaming. It's "creepy/not normal" and she hates I have a display case and all that.

I'm downsizing my collection anyway, but she's at that "I want it *all* gone" state, and asked to choose between her and gaming.

I said gaming. Because if she gets to control one part of my life like that, she'll go for everything else, and she's all "fine."

Has anyone here dealt with a partner walking out on you over 40k, assuming no issues with budget (super careful with that) or presence (I don't talk about it with her/drag her into it as she's clearly not interested)? Have you been able to salvage things or do you just cut the cord?

That would trigger loyalist players.

Ideally, the basic CSM would be cheaper than a loyalist marine due to a lack of inbuilt Chapter Tactics and ATSKNF, but with a variety of reasonably priced Veteran Skills and Chaos blessings to make more elite CSM.

The current system of "pretty much the same cost base but vastly worse with expensive and shitty Marks" is pretty much the worst possible system.

She wants attention, and you give a fair bit of your attention to those models. Don't sacrifice something you enjoy just for a woman, someone better who understands will come along I promise.

If your partner is walking out on you because of a hobby (you seem to be on top of everything in terms of budget, time, and not annoying her with it) she is the one with issues not you. You seem well adjusted from what you've been saying.

Today is the day my Commissar executed Marneus Augustus Calgar.
My Commissar joined a squad of recruits.
Calgar joined some Vanguards/Sternguards ( i always forget which one is which )
Calgars friends all die due to Eldar shenanigans, but my recruits are nearby, so he joins them,so that he has a meatshield protecting him.
Then, in the next round my enemy shot at the recruits, killed many and made them fail their moral ( i rolled a double 6 ), so i let my commissar shoot one of them. I rolled a d6 and rolled another 6, so my enemy gets to decide which model gets shot.
Of course he decides that Calgar gets shot to improve the moral.

TL;DR Shooting the Chaptermaster of the Ultramarines improves the moral

Orange highlights on the "panels".

At this point in the paint-job, now that it's washed already, I'd say just putting some subtle highlights on the edges of each individual panel could make it more apparent that the orange is a separate colour from the tan uniform beneath it.
On future models, perhaps a slightly brighter shade of orange could be the answer, or else more pronounced highlights before the wash is applied and the subtle highlight thereafter?
