Yes, that one.

>> No.50561120


So what 'niches' of warfare haven't been filled yet? Like, there were two lost Primarchs, clearly they had to have some kind of unique specialty. With the canonical ones, we're already doubling up.

For instance, both Ferrus and Vulkan are the guys who are good at forging. Alpharius, Corax and Night Haunter are all good at being sneaky. Sanginus and Angron both have the 'berserker' thing down, while Sangy and Fulgrim are both the 'pretty ones'. The only guy who doesn't have a direct analogue is Lorgar, whose gimmick is that he's 'the religious one'.

I'm kinda annoyed about AL getting cult uprising when the only way of getting cultists is with cult uprising

I want to house rule this by giving a slight benefit to the cult uprising rule, which sounds the most fair?

1. Reroll a failed roll - About a 75% chance of success
2. Increase it to 3+ - About a 66% chance
3. Give the formation the Frenized Horde rule from the Cult of Slaughter formation - Regen Cultists per move phase

Iron Warriors question. I've ran a trio of Warpsmith, Forgefiend and Ferrum Infernus Dreadnought with Destroyer of Cities. This has been moderately effective since opponents tend to get tunnel vision and want all three DEAD after the Forgefiend makes an IWND roll and the Warpsmith fixes something on the Dread.

However, the weakness is the Warpsmith can be sniped which means the Dread will pop soon after, and then it's just a Forgefiend on its lonesome.

I'm considering dropping the Fiend in favour of a Helcult and a Fleshmetal Exoskeleton for the Warpsmith. I get bubble wrap for the whole unit (warpsmith joins cultists and DoC doesn't care about intervening friendlies because all his weapons are templates) and if I can roll the Warlord trait that grants IWND to vehicles things start to get really silly.

So if I'm correct here:

So that formation with 9 units of Scarab occult, maxed out, would include almost every member of the scarab occult in existence.

The get started is a always a solid place to start an army on a budget. The necron one doesn't give you the most exciting of options, but it's solid and that's what you need right now. If you wanted exciting, you wouldn''t be playing necrons anyways.

All solid choices. You'll find that while the necron codex isn't exactly filled with the most exciting of rules (it's hard to get excited when you're a robot zombie, hur hur hur) there's very little in way of trap or bad choices. The real question becomes how do you want to build your army.

You can use the standard force organization chart which allows you to experiment with different unit combos or you can rock out the decurion and laugh as people waste bullets trying to kill your army. If you go with the standard force organization (The combined arms) then you can buy whatever you want and fit it in the appropriate slot as long as you have the minimum 2 troops and 1 hq which you should already have from the get started. If you go with the deucrion, plan your purchases around the formations you want to run and go from there.

Hope this helps

You're in luck, they get the best shit.

Requirements: Only unique character available is Typhus. Mark of Nurgle Only. VotLW. Psykers must take one power from Nurgle.
Benefits: VotLW gain fearless & FnP but -1 initiative (doesn’t affect Typhus or Plague marines) and relentless. Plague Marines are troops. Fearless Terminators with T5 and FnP? Oh, HELL yeah!

Warlord Traits
1: Feel No Pain.
2: IWND.
3: +1 Wound.
4: Eternal Warrior.
5: Poisoned weapons get an extra +1 to their effectiveness, to a maximum of Poisoned (2+). For example, Poisoned becomes Poisoned (3+).
6: Friendly units within 7" get Contagion.

Puscleaver: Poison 2+ CCW. Turns your DP into an MC killer. Or don't and take the Black Mace instead.
Plague Skull Glothia: One use only. Range 8” S1 AP - assault 1 poison (2+) large blast.
Pandemic Staff: Poison 2+ staff. As a ranged weapon, it's a template S1 Ap5 assault 2. As a melee weapon, it's a S+2 AP4, melee, concussive.
Dolorus Knell:
Poxwalker Hive: Turn your cultists into zombies. At start of each turn you grant FnP to a friendly cultist unit within 7”. They can’t run or shoot for the rest of the game but have fearless, oh & D3 cultists come back to life.
Plaguebringer: Power sword with poison 4+ and daemon weapon.


Core (1+)
Plague Colony: 1 Chaos Lord with Mark of Nurgle and VotLW (as per Death Guard Detachment) or Typhus leads 3-7 units of Plague Marines. When enemy models come within 7" of a unit from this formation, they take -1WS and Initiative, and if you took all 7 Plague Marine units they reduce their toughness by 1 as well. The latter bonus too is very expensive, but allows your plagueknifes to potentially re-roll to wound if you're attacking MEQ, and even then the -1 to Initiative will solve the big issue of Death Guard being I3.

VotLW is always free.

Unlike a lot of GW fliers, one of the advantages of the Quad Ion Turret is the fact that it's a turret. It can fly over the target and then hit rear armor WITHOUT having to spend turns trying to point its entire fuselage at rear armor in order to bring it's big guns to bare on them.

Is it worth it to reconsidering buying Chaos marines for Khorne or am I still better just playing my Pre Heresy list in 40k as I've been doing for the past few years?

>> No.50562911

Requirements: No unique characters(presumably this will be changed if Lorgar and Erebus ever get rules in 40k). No cult units (such as Noise Marines or Berzerkers). However, units that can purchase marks can still take them, as long as that base unit doesn't have a specific mark by default. Like all legions, you must take VotLW, which is free and grants you your "legion tactics".

Benefits: Word Bearers Psykers harness Warp Charges on 3+ when rolling Malefic Conjuration powers, and Possessed are Troops. Models with VotLW re-roll to hit against Ultramarines, but Ultramarines gain Hatred (Word Bearers). Friendly units within 6" of Word Bearers Dark Apostles gain Zealot.

Warlord Traits
1: Zealot. If Warlord already has Zealot, you now always re-rolling hits in CC.
2: Become a Psyker. If already a Psyker, +1 Mastery Level.
3: Each turn you may grant a friendly unit within 12" Counterattack, Fearless, Furious Charge or Relentless.
4: Adamantium Will and Fearless
5: You and friendly Characters within 12", when rolling on the Chaos Boon table can either add or subtract 1 from the second die when rolling on the boon table.
6: Gain an extra roll on the Boon table.

Malefic Tome: Bearer gets 1 extra power, which must be rolled on Malefic Daemonology.

Skull of Monarchia: Bearer and unit re-roll all failed to-hit rolls against Armies of the Imperium in close combat, and if against Ultramarines re-roll to wound.

Script of Erebus: Generate D6 Extra warp charges in a psychic phase, once per game.

Baleful Icon: Enemy units must re-roll successful charges, and if they still succeed, the charge is disordered.

Crown of Blasphemer: 4+ Invulnerable Save, Adamantium Will, and Fear.

Cursed Crozius: AP3 Power Maul that grants Preferred Enemy: Armies of the Imperium.

No pages, just rules, sorry.

My immediate thoughts is a Khorne Lord on Bike/Juggernaught with the Talisman of Burning Blood in a Mark of Khorne Bike Squad.

Deploy at the line, Blood Mad about 7ish inches forward, drive forward 12, Assault turn 1 with a Khornate Biker gang.

That might be good enough to get me back into chaos, as turn one charges are vital to assault armies these days it seems. My biggest problem with Khorne was the lack of decent methods of getting stuck in and Land Raiders being obsoleted by grav didn't help, Pre heresy fixed that with Raiders that repaired immobilization and didn't care about melta but this is a nice way of getting stuck in as well.

The warlord traits are great as well. Big question is this one:

Tau are brave because they're standing against the might of empires that are expontentially larger than them, and they refuse to abandon the idealism that makes them who they are, no matter the odds.

Even the fucking Eldar are brave, because they know if they bite it as a species, Slaanesh is going to tongue fuck their tight assholes for all eternity.

Space Marines on both sides of the Heresy are protected on so many levels that nothing they do can be considered heroic.

There is a bit of a divide between people who want to just waifu up the Eldar as pretty spesh elves, and the people who actually want them to look like they are described in the lore.

The idea that the later want them to look like friggin sectoids or some utterly inhuman creepy ayylmaos is a strawman. The Eldar are described to have high cheekbones, almond shaped, almost predatory cat/bird like eyes, and very angular and sharp features, that make it quite apparent that they are not human if you look at them properly (roughly like the artwork by this guy), but even that is apparently too ihuman to some people who just want them to be pretty humans.

The problem is increased further due to the fact that official artwork that depicts Eldar faces is all over the place, with very little consistency.

They Equated "Chapter Master" with "Warrior King," and they were not wrong to do so. A Chapter Master is an Independent warrior of a large band and has primarily little oversight in who is allowed to boss them around. Yet when they arrive, they are almost always the highest ranking individuals on the field, and frequently outrank generals and admirals.

They know that there is more than one "Warrior King," that "Warrior King" is a rank based on both skilled merit and veterancy, and they know that one single "Warrior King" represents a huge investment of resources, provided you consider experience a resource along with materials. Hell, the loss of X centuries of experience is probably a far more serious blow than the loss of tons of equipment.

So, yeah, killing a Chapter Master means that the Imperium has lost something that it can't immediately replace. Even after Shrike assumes the title, Severax's loss is still significant.

I mean, if Chapter Masters were a dime a dozen the RG players wouldn't have flipped so much shit about Shadowsun killing one.

The two units just have some weird stuff going on. For instance, the Sun shark (the bomber) had to be FAQ'd so that it actually started the game with a bomb. Every time time drops a bomb, it has a 1/6th chance of not being able to make any more. Also, the guns on its drones have a profile that cannot be used, as the drones have skyfire (rather than the Tau norm of choosing whether or not they have skyfire). The razorshark is mostly meh, four piranhas cost as much and do about the same and are more fun in my opinion.
