No. They just did the most recent round of big Battleforces and included Deathwatch rather than vanilla SM.

Thousand Sons Detachment Rules

>Aegis of Fate: Models with VotLW gain a 6+ Invulnerable save and the Fearless special rule.

>Channeling: At the beginning of your psychic phase, roll a D6 for each of your Thousand Sons characters on the table. Each result of a 5+ grants you an additional Warp Charge that turn. Psykers may add their Mastery Level to their roll.

Grand Coven Rules

>Lords of Arcane Might: Reroll Warlord Traits on Tzeentch table.

>Prosperine Cults: Each Psyker from this detachment must choose one of the following cults. They automatically gain psychic focus in that cult's associated discipline, and may reroll all failed Psychic Tests and Perils of the Warp result when manifesting or attempting to manifest Psychic Powers from their cult's discipline or from the Discipline of Tzeentch.

Been getting into warhammer the last couple years looking to start a tabletop army, I'm wanting to play orks mostly looking on tips on what to get (were to get) maybe some strats to help someone new to get acclimated.

Also really loving the Stompas especially since ive been reading the Sanctus Reach books.

>> No.51220473

That's still only 1.5 average Warp Charge per Rubric Marines unit, which is 100 points per Warp Charge.

Sure, it gets better with IC psykers, but you can only take so many of those before you start running into issues with having enough boots on the ground.

This only happens on your turn, so it does nothing for trying to shut out the other guys psychic phase.

The current rules leave all Tzeentch CSM stuck in shitsville, and there's no reason not to have rules that offer some benefits for non-Rubric marines. Thousand Sons use allied Tzeentch warbands in the fluff.

Aegis of Fate is silly. Channeling slows the game down. One idea I'm thinking of is redoing Blessing of Tzeentch as follows:
>Legacy of the Rubric: Models with Veterans of the Long War have Fearless. Non-Character models with Veterans of the Long War have Slow and Purposeful, UNLESS they already had Relentless. ("Second-hand Rubrics").
>Blessing of Tzeentch: May alter the results of Perils as well as Psychic disciplines learned by +-1. (Don't ever get stuck with Siphon Magic on a ML 1 Sorcerer again!)

Make the Grand Coven's bonus:
>Mastery of Arcane Knowledge: When attempting to manifest a Psychic power, after spending at least one Warp Charge on the power, you get an additional "free" Warp Charge to use on that power.

Replace Oracular Guidance on the War Cabal with: "Psychic Contagion:" When a friendly Thousand Sons Psyker successfully manifests a blessing on a unit from this formation and the opponent fails to Deny the Witch, you may automatically apply this blessing to another unit from this formation within 6".

>Re-do the unit compositions in general. Add clauses preventing Transports, add more unit variety.

Make the Warband an Auxiliary Choice.

Nobs are total shit, get meganobz instead.

Boyz and grots are useless at doing things themselves but are very useful as meat shields to hide other units behind and deny overwatch.
gets several squads of them, take as many as you wish but don't bother with upgrades (other than maybe a big choppa for the nob so he can smash up rear armour) like armour, transports or special weapons but ALWAYS get a nob leader for the boyz.

Tank bustas, mega nobz, lootas, bikers, mek gunz, trukks, dakka jets and battlewagons are all good units.

It stacks with other blessings, Skyshield Landing Pads, Armored Crates, etc (stupidest example: Allying in Orks and a KFF Mek. It works on enemies!). It's more niche, but it is what it is. Being able to adjust rolls to see what powers you know by +-1 would help too, and optionally, that +-1 roll could also apply to Mysterious Objectives, Armored Crates, etc. Just as planned.

Pulling from 1d4chan but I could have seen it on lexicanum either; ymmv:
>Since the Rubric of Ahriman, the Thousand Sons have lost many of the Rubric Marines, but they still manage to keep their numbers at near thousand. Two main theories that they either perform the scaled-down version of Rubric on other marines, or reanimate fallen ones by pulling their souls out of Warp and putting them into repaired/new sets of armour (The latter theory has been confirmed by Phil Kelly, but he also mentioned that the Black Legion uses the former version to make their own Rubric Marines).

That's what I mean by second-hand. Either "repaired/reserviced", or "knockoff Rubrics"; one could flesh out (ha!) the fluff for these fleshless automatons of course.

The "No Transports" is mostly because I would be interested in adding Rhinos to the Legion Armory auxiliary, and it simplifies "weird interactions" from formations/odd side effects (like Genestealer Cultists taking the Demolition Claw only so they could get Infiltrating Tank Hunter Goliaths, etc).

>> No.51221152

Generally, no. The main reason you would want them would be to deliver Breachers, and that's mostly if you're running a Hunter Cadre. The FAQ lets the Breachers shoot as normal even if the Devilfish jinks.

Problem being most Tau armies focus heavily on suits, with the Riptide Wing and Rapid Insertion Force being popular and the Optimized Stealth Cadre having a cool gimmick versus "heavy armor" armies, that falters against stuff like Decurions/Warpspider spam.

Phil Kelly is a yffer that doesn't know shit, and I'm extremely skeptical about unsourced claims about what a random GW author did or did not say. Is there a single canon example of a secondary rubric? Ahriman barely managed to almost cast his second rubric, and it was a massive clusterfuck.

If you're going to pretend that current MoTz is worthwhile because it will occasionally stack with other shit, there's not much point in trying to hear you out.

It's ironic that you complain that a couple seconds of Channeling would take too much time but then espouse a time consuming process of choosing to ad or subtract one from a whole bunch of rolls.

If you want to keep weird transport formation interactions to a minimum, word shit properly. Separating Dedicated Transports into a different slot is asinine.

>> No.51221396

Lootas are good because they have a ton of s7 ap4 shots.

Tankbustas pop vehicles, instant death T4 models and ignore space marine armour but they NEED to be in a transport of some kind.

Devilfish is a nice transport, rather good I'd say even. Problem is there is nothing good to transport. If your terrain has lots of vertical climbs then it can save turns/buy distance against fast ground enemies that can't scale the vertical distance.
Before the errata it was nice to use as a popemobile for ethereals but you won't get the buffs anymore if the ethereal is inside.

There is 3 uses for devilfishes:
-Breacher assaults
>It's nice and can surprise people but in the end crisis suits are better shock troops

One could argue the same thing about pretending that giving rank-and-file Power Armor marines a 5++ would matter, especially since 5+ cover is the norm, and most models die from weight of failed armor saves (Scatpacks/Spiders, mass grav, Burst Cannon/SMS Riptide Wings, HYMP/SMS Broadsides, even Venoms).

>Add +-1 for a whole bunch of rolls.
It's a lot faster than deciding whether you want to re-roll, and the result is mostly at army creation. Most of the time, you want the Skyfire result for Mysterious Terrain, or something relevant for the Armored Crate. And you NEVER want to lower your die result for Perils.

Friend and I were considering splitting pic related, him getting the Deathwatch and me getting the Eldar.

I don't really like Harlequins that much, though my current Eldar force is somewhat focused around jetbikes, so I would be pretty happy to have some others that I don't have to reassure people aren't running scatter lasers.

I'd probably just be taking the Skyweavers and a Starweaver, sticking a Death's Jester alongside my Dark Reapers to serve as a mini-Maugan Ra. Is that a decent inclusion? Should I also throw in some Harlequins? I figure I could model them as guardians or something.

>> No.51221914

Inriam's Spectre (his rules are from the Death Masque book) is a DJ with Shrouded, all for a mere +5 points. If you're taking Harlies, and taking a DJ, take him instead and stick him in a covercamping Eldar squad for fire support and constant Conceal, or a Troupe for 2+ in any cover.

I'm looking to get back into 40k and I used to run BT in the old days.

Free shrouded? That's even better. My Dark Reapers usually hang back, so they'd appreciate the extra cover save boost.

It's tougher and can bring a nice killikannon.

The problem is your bustas are about as tough as wet paper and your trukk is around the same, only the battlewagon gives them any kind of real survivability.

>> No.51221990

Checked my booklet just for you. He, any all the other named squads from the book, can replace any generic version of himself in any formation. So, whenever you could take a DJ, you can take him instead, so you can stick him in any Harlequin formation or detachment.

While I'm at it, The Blades of Fate are a decent pick if you're looking at Skyweavers. They can reroll Jinks, but come locked into Zephyrglaives and a squad size of 2.

>> No.51221999

There isn't any official rules for converting but in general (1) the converted model should be as close as possible to the size of the "real" model. Making things bigger or smaller affects certain things like getting cover saves, and (2) (converted) models should be easily recognizable to avoid confusion. So if you want in example make a guard army with Napoleon era aesthetics, your heavy weapons should still be somewhat easy to tell apart (big long cannon for lascannon etc.).
If you looked at the tournament list I linked it had several tanbusta units in trucks and yes you can make up by shooting a lot.

As for the rules changes, editions have changed like 2-5 year intervals and can have really big or really minor changes. New(er) GW seems to give out new codex for every faction per edition at some point of that editons lifetime. As for now there shouldn't be anything to radically change orks or tyranids, maybe some supplements to add more rules/formations/models but nothing radical.

Get a Deredeo, and give it the War on Murder legacy of glory. It's easily the deadliest anti-air unit in the entire game, and can do things like bring down a Flyrant/Daemon prince in one round of shooting. In fact, it can kill every flyer in the entire game in just one round of shooting, and that INCLUDES FMCs.

It's biggest advantage though is that it has Skyfire+Interceptor OPTIONAL. A Deredeo with no flyers to molest with it's copious amount of guns can just switch to molesting tanks with extreme prejudice.

Depends on the list. If you're running a Gladius, the AA suppression force works because you're also getting a fair few cheapish armored hulls to go alongside your metal boxes.

Steve Sisk got 3rd at LVO last year with a White Scar Gladius, 12 Razorbacks (mixed options) and an AA Suppression Force with 3 Stalkers and a Hunter.

His Devastators only took 1 Grav Cannon and Armorium Cherub each, his other stuff was a mix of Meltas, Plasma, the Assault Marines got flamera, etc. He ran surprisingly little Grav, and kept most his stuff boxed up while letting the tanks do most the work.

Run your army using the 30k rules. Pick a legion and start playing. 30k CSM get to take Leviathans as Talons, which means you can cram up to 3 Leviathans into a single force-org slot, and they all split up into seperate units at the start of the game.

There's sadly no rules for Chaos Leviathans in 40k, so your closest method to doing it is to bring an allied detachment of Space Marines, consisting of a Techmarine(for unlocking the MANDATORY ROA slot), a scout squad, and a Leviathan Dreadnought.

Yes and No. Technically yes, you're still playing the same game as them. It's still Warhammer 40,000, and you use the 7th edition rulebook with some modifications

Unofficially, you're playing a totally different game mathwise. 30k armies aren't intended to be played at the points levels 40k is played at. 40k is balanced around 1500~, while 30k is balanced at 3000+. Anytime you try to play a 30k army at a game of less than 3000 points, you're at a severe disadvantage because every unit has a Tax attached to its force org slot.

Relax dude, just take criticism in stride as you have been doing. Someone figured out how to break your formations, so you fixed them. There's not much else to it.

Yea, Legion tactical squads are 150 points for 10 dudes, but every additional dude is only 10 points per model, and they have no options at all. So every army has a mandatory 300 point tax right out of the gate. At that point you might as well bite the bullet and just spend 500 points on 40 dudes, just to fill out your basic mandatory troops choice.

For reference, 40k space marines can just skip the troop choice altogether and take 2 scout squads at 110 points, then go straight to filling their army with delicious goodies like centurions, tanks, and fancy characters.

This book right here contains all of the rules needed to run 30k Space Marines. The important thing to know about Legionnes Astartes is that for your customization, you pick your Legion, your Allegiance, and your Rites of War. All 3 of these have different effects on how your army behaves on the tabletop. Your Legion gives army-wide rules, your allegiance determines how you behave on the allies chart, and your rites of war handles Force Org Fuckery.

Like for example Raven Guard get army-wide Infiltrate. You can be a traitor group within the raven guard as well. And the "Pride of the Legion" rites of war removes your ability to take certain units, but in return makes Terminators a troop choice.

Special Characters also have a Stamp on their page that determines their allegiance. Like for example the character Garviel Loken(a Luna Wolf/Son of Horus) has an Aquila on his character page. He's a loyalist, so he's essentially treated as armies of the imperium.

Its a slippery slope going from DEldar with Eldar allies to going to Eldar with DEldar allies. That said having something like a Bikeseer + 2 Scatbike units isn't a bad addition to a Dark Eldar army.

Also - scourges aren't bad at all, it really depends on how competitive you want to be. Ultimately the accepted Dark Eldar strategy is heavy MSU spam, basically you take a ton of fast shit and a Corpse Thief Claw and just funnel stuff into a CTC.

There's a difference between 2/3's of the legion going traitor and a small force attached to one of the traitor legions getting absorbed into the warmaster's forces.

I guess at the end of the day it's what lore you like. It isn't just Forgeworld that does this however. Black Library had a loyalist Tson working for the White Scars.

>> No.51223432

The Raven Guard also have Chaos Spawn within their ranks during the heresy. They called them Raptors, and shoved the ones that could function into power armour, while they used the rest as cannon fodder. It would be prudent to assume that more than a few of them fell to chaos during the interim...

After the heresy, the surviving members of the Raptors were given a ship and told to fuck off to the other side of the galaxy to form their own chapter.

Officially the word bearers don't have any loyalists remaining. Although since lots of crusading ships were lost to the warp, it's not that hard to say that maybe a Word Bearers crusading ship that was lost to the warp somehow escaped the whole "loyalist purges".

Don't know, but it wouldn't be hard to come up with a reason. Perhaps they were attached to a different legion when Lorgar went crazy. This particular band of Word Bearers believe that Lorgar is committing heresy for straying from the God-Emperor. It could work.

The thing is, if you have a legion in 30k and you decide to be a different alignment, you lose pretty much every legion specific unit your legion had. No gal vorbak, no Lorgar.

Nah, I don't have Tyranids--I just borrowed some from a friend and marveled at how they got their shit pushed in when she played against her girlfriend's Tau.

Tyranids don't have D weapons, as an army. Their 500-1000 point models don't even have ranged AP2. They used to have the only MCs in existence outside of Daemons, but now they're awful compared to anything else. GCs used to be theirs alone, now they have the worst & most overcosted Apoc/SH/GC in the game.

They can spend literally almost triple Imperial or Tau and end up with inferior units that job to mediocre LoWs. Like, at this point, I wouldn't begrudge a Nid player getting 50% more points & D guns on all the Hierophants & Hierodules.

Pretty much all of the 30k legion specific units have a traitor/loyalist alignment. All of the word bearers stuff is traitor specific.

Pylons cut off everyone from the Warp, which shut down Celestine, all the psykers and all the Chaos fuckery.

This killed the Imperial defenders' moral, because their faith was strong only because Celestine was there, glowing and kicking ass.

She turned back to a normal human without Emperor Warp power. Imperial Moral plummeted, but Chaos saw it as proof the Emperor is a false god, and kept kicking ass, since they're supersoldiers.

Abaddon nearly kills Creed, gets backstabbed by human Celestine, and injured.

Most of both forces leave as the Pylons start getting overloaded and the power of the Warp comes back. Abaddon smashes his Blackstone Fortress into Cadia, destroying it.

I think you can compete with those style lists. You pack a very reasonable Deathstar so you can bully around a ton of ObSec units very effectively.

I'd take like 2-3 ionheads in the mix.

I wasn't even a part of the conversation, the dude was just being a massive faggot and should leave here. People like him aren't welcome.

Fuck space yiffs. Bunch of mutants that have been manipulated by chaos since the heresey.

dude, Im also an IG fag, but at least try to have some arguments.

That's actually a pretty interesting army. A little one-note thanks to more than half of it being tied up in tanks, but definitely not something you see every day.

>> No.51224356

looks good yeah...I would consider replacing one of the pathfinder teams with either some guela or a kroot squad if things get close and personal.

New thread

Actually you aren't welcome, you're being an utter sperg and are the one who started this by just attacking some dude because of some personal issue.

>> No.51224452

Thank you, I wasn't expecting this sort of feedback
Ions are for lighter armor and infantry with the large blast, right?
I don't think I can afford Kroot without dropping some upgrades
Thank you again, though

Imagine having to spend £160 to bring 8 large plastic pods that only allow you to deepstrike.

Fag who doesn't play skimming this thread, can I just say I don't know what the fuck you guys are arguing about but you're all spergs. SW, IG, both of you faggots. Now I know what armies to not pick, at least.

Ionhead is riptide-lite. Instead of fucking up everything it fucks up marines which is basically everything, yeah and it has better hp damage output against almost every vehicle.

Seriously, where is that Fall of Cadia? Searched the previous threads, there was nothing expect someone constantly posting space sharks book as a joke when anyone asked.

But that AP1 gives me a 33% chance of exploding on pen
I'll switch two of them to Ion and see how it works
Thank you again

Fluffy and not too terrible, will have lots of trouble with stuff like Tau though. Also why are you taking sword brother sergeants in your lascannon teams?

If you want to make your list a "harder" list for more competitive games, give your captain Cataphractii armor, take a squad with 4x grav cannons and drop pod them all in to fire 20 grav shots into your opponent's heaviest unit on turn 1. If your meta is casual though, don't do this, because it revolves around an exploit in the cataphractii armor's rules and is cheesy.

What do you mean 'crying a meme they don't understand'

Levithans where terra made during the heresy, so they'd be rare for tratiors to have even back then.
And 10,000 years later, given how levithans tend to do over long periods of time, there'd be maybe one or two chaos levithans.

Needless to say, because of this FW did not make chaos levithan rules

Just how overpowered is a Dual-Gladius Battle Company? It's pretty fluffy (I play Ultrasmurfs) but I don't want to stomp my friends. We're just getting back into 40k, they play Nids and Grey Knights.
can I do anything to tone it down?

Make an 1850 pts list

>> No.51225409


I would get rid of the Tzaangors, they are to pricey for what they are.

I don't see any good counter for flyers. Seems like you would struggle with vehicles as well since you only have the predator to tackle armour.

>> No.51225540

you could forget that it gives you free vehicles and pay for them

>> No.51225611

Is this a legit list? Don't expect it to be competitive but with some upgrades it should be a 1000pts out of deathwatch box and some hybrids.

Rate my list, need suggestions

This pleases the Lion.

I don't really see any way to deal with flyers in your amy. And your aberrants are so-so anti vehicle units that are pricey for what they are.

I think you need genestealers too.

>> No.51226388

Guys, what if Admech IS Squats.

>> No.51226429

Yeah wasn't sure if you can upgrade the units in the ghosar detachment since it has a specified points cost but hopefully I'll have some genestealers soon. The genestealers don't seem to have any beneficial detachments apart from first curse but that is ridiculously expensive and means I can't benefit from the Patriarch in a coven.

>> No.51226509


By default I tend to build armies unbound and then after I have something I like I'll look at formations that align fairly close to what I have and then consider changing it to fit.

By default I don't really like most formations and detachments.

>> No.51226809

definitely last time I played 40k was 6 or so years back and it's all totally alien. Seems like cults and some newer factions rely on special rules so the detachments look really beneficial.

>> No.51226819

Anyone thought about making an anki deck /memrise course to memorise rules?
