Q: Can Psykers embarked in vehicles or buildings only cast witchfire powers? Does this include Psykers who are riders of a Chariot?
A: Psykers embarked in Transports or buildings can only cast witchfire powers. Psykers who are riders of Chariots can attempt to manifest any type of psychic power.

Of all the rules in current 40k, the "morale standards" is the one I hate the most.

See this is because the game comes from a bunch of basement dwellers, playing tight games with deep lore, and they thought everyone else would do the same. And this way of thinking has colored the way of thinking about 40k to this day.

"Its ok to take option A, but not in conjunction with model B or C"

"Well, you could play with that army, but no one would play you, because your then a dick! I'm only telling you this, because I'm such a good sportsman."

"Its ok to follow rules, just not THOSE rules"

"Letting your opponent cheat every once in a while is considered good sportsmanship"

"You can win, but not that many times in a row, therefore you're playing cheesy!"

I could go on, but in the end its just a horrid community. One must abide to the local meta and roll with it I guess.

So as an old player who abandoned ship at the end of 5th, I'm curious about rejoining the game. I'm well up to date with all the bullshit formations and death of the FOC. However I'd appreciate some advice about jumping back into the game.

Specifically, which army should I go for?
I'm sufficiently into the fluff that I find all of the factions appealing on some level. I'm more concerned with the playstyle. What I want:

> Melee & close-ranged shooting
> Fucking mental damage output
> High speed / mobility
> Glass cannon approach, just removing fistfuls of models every turn
> 'Hard to play', 'Skilled' etc. All the buzzwords that mean I didn't just drop Riptides on the table.
> Sufficient internal balance that I can write my own lists without cookie-cutter templates
> Minimal reliance on allies or non-fluffy army selection choices

I'm mostly looking at Harlequins, Genestealers or Daemons/Renegades at present. These seem to be about where I am aiming.
- Are these sufficiently powerful that I can play tourneys with them?
- Can I play against Riptides, ScatterKnights, Decurions etc.?
- Any general comments about the armies and fun bits

Any help is very much appreciated.

Harlies are super cookie cutter. They're also just too flimsy/elite to really compete at the upper levels.

Genestealers are top tier.

They could nerf Stomp attacks(remove the chance of an automatic unavoidable one hit kill) and allow knights to be crew shaken/stunned/immobilized/weapon destroyed like everyone else, and things would be a lot more fair.

You could even say "the first immobilize on a superheavy makes it move 6" instead of 12" like it used to be, and it would be fine. But as-is, superheavies basically ignore all the rules that the rest of the game is balanced around while also wielding arbitrarily powerful superweapons and having lots of armor and hull points.

Gargantuan Creatures are arguably even worse.

CSM will just get nuked into the floor come 8th Edition. Magnus will be removed along with Obliterators and all of their Formations will be edited to include 2+ Warp Talons.
Non-CSM players will celebrate this as a win for the game and claim that all those filthy Legion players deserved it for associating themselves with an OP Codex.

Speaking of nasty demons, Magnus reminds me of the insane Daemon Princes in the back of the 2nd ed. Chaos Codex. I particularly remember the Nurgle one which was a huge incredibly tough meat pile that didn't actually attack but would just kill things that it rolled over in the movement phase.

>> No.50366784

Why are people freaking out about magnus when tzeentch already had 2++ rerollable psychic death stars for the longest time? In fact it is entirely possible that he may be ignored in that retrospect as tons of points are put towards his toughness and close combat ability which are unnecessary.
