No one will read lists unless they're posted with Listbuilder any more.

The non-drop pod Sternguard join the Inquisitor and ride up in the Chimera. Classic Chimera (Listbuilder DOESN'T support Inquisition, only IA, so I couldn't list the 5-fire-point one). Acolytes help protect the psykana division, which spends the game summoning daemons. Everything else is pretty self explanatory. Vanguard Vets in the Stormraven, remove kebab all over. The one place I'm really lacking still is anti-AV14 (besides the Stormraven, knight sword, and thunder hammers); any suggestions to shore that up?

Sup /tg/. I just had a 3000 point game today against my buddy, where we both brought Castellans. I talked with him beforehand and let him bring both Space Wolves and Dank Angles in it, although he did go a little far and brought mechanicus with him too. He had a list where he brought 6 different Armies of the Imperium including Imperial Guard, Mechanicus, Deathwatch, Dark Angels, Space Wolves, and Sisters of Battle. He also had a LEVIATHAN named Ranulf Threadcutter, and an identical loadout to FATMAN.

My list consisted of my Space Marines and Rough Riders, but I also brought some Custodians in an Emperor's Shield. My army had like 30 Rough Riders forming the core of it, along with 5 scout squads, 2 scout squads, a Librarian and a Chaplain(as a dreadnought), and 10 Honour Guard.

And here's my buddy's Leviathan. On turn 1 his leviathan dropped right next to my Sternguard's razorback and blew it right the fuck up, while also tagging one of my Rough Rider squads to half-strength. He also blew up my only Vindicator with a shitload of haywire.

On my first turn, I dropped FATMAN right next to Belisarius Cawl, and his copious amount of guns completely deleted Cawl's retinue of breachers. The entire rest of my army NOPED THE FUCK AWAY from the Leviathan that was now on my right flank, while I sent my Custodians to try and heroically delay it!

I send Saint Celestine to SOLO the entirety of the 100 rough riders with her heavy flamer. Checkmate bitch.

To our surprise, the Custodians managed to hold back the Leviathan Ranulf for FOUR TURNS STRAIGHT. The fuckers just wouldn't die, even with only 2 storm shields in the unit.

Saint Celestine apparently is stupidly good at killing Rough Riders. On turn 2 she shot, charged, and solo'd my second RR squad, all 10 of them.

My Leviathan charged Belisarius on turn 3, and ended up locking combat with him while only dealing a single wound. On my opponent's turn, Saint Celestine Solo'd my third RR squad, leaving me with only 3 rough riders left in my entire army.

The entire remainder of the game was sadly just mop-up for him as my army was then in shambles, and I couldn't bring enough firepower to bear to burn down Celestine. She's just TOO effective of an ablator, and requires an obscene amount of firepower just to deal damage to her.

Best Primarch
So one thing I haven't quite looked in to (I really need to read me some BA books) is what is The Flaw? My friend said BA already had the Black Rage and it was Sanguinius that kept it in check... but the Black Rage manifests as trapping a Blood Angel in memories of the Horus Heresy, making the marine think he is Sanguinius himself. I know they always had the Red Thirst and I thought that was the flaw and the Black Rage came later after Horus gave Sanguinius a tickling. Which is it?

How many points do you want to play at? You could start with just one and play Kill Team if you're new to the hobby, since with only Reavers and Hellions you'd be forced to play Unbound anyway.

For reference, before upgrades 6 Reavers and 10 Hellions clocks in at 226 points, so you're looking at roughly 250 points' worth per box.

Fuck off Craftshitter.

The Archon's a general-purpose HQ. He can be given a blaster to add some more anti-tank to the squad you put him in and can take a huskblade to surprise instagib enemy units without 2+ armor, as well as a shadowfield to tank hits if you're ballsy.
The Succubus fights better, and on a tighter budget, but has fuck all for shooting. Either will work, but if in doubt an Archon is easier to build around.
>what is the best way to run this type of army?
I'd go for a Realspace Raiders core. It gives you a shitton of Fast Attack slots to fit in all those jetbikes and Hellions, but has a minimum requirement of 2 Troops choices. Of course you could just take minimum-sized Warrior squads with a blaster each and stick them in Venoms, too, which I would recommend, since you're going to need an anti-tank/MC option.

I kinda want to get this mentality out that having a single Riptide is "OP". It's not. They're the Tau's TEQ. It's fair if they can have one if you bring some Termies or a Land Raider. If they bring multiple and in the Wing, then yes that is pretty cheesy.

Also Kroot are shit. They're just expendable meatshields. Having a whole army oriented around them would be incredibly boring. If Tau auxiliaries had the same love that Genestealers then that would be fine.

A "fun" army to play against is something that tries to bring all the neat units into the battle in a combined arms fashion. Not just spamming any one single unit. A good Tau player would know that some well supported fire warrior unit is a cheaper and arguably better source of anti infantry fire power than the other units.

I'm so tired of hearing non Tau players complain about "muh Battlesuits or muh Riptides" They're there in the codex, they have a purpose, just like the FWs.source then any of the battle suits. Just because you get butthurt at the cheesemongers doesn't mean that the other Tau players have to stop using a particular unit. Quit bitching.

Hey guys, I'm an Eldar fag, and as you can imagine I'm quite hyped for the incoming releases. Question is, from a guy who loved the narrative in death masque (even if ridicously short, and therefore stupid) is the Fall of Cadia a good read?

Thanks guys!
just to clarify: I know the Eldar do not show a lot in the book, was just wondering if it is something worth to read story wise and not something like "Cadia falls, people fight, gg" with 3 pages in narration and the rest in rules and photos.
Death masque deserved more in pages IMHO, the narrative had all the elements to build a good story (the assault on port desmus, the harlequins stealing stuff, discovery of coelia, Eldrad plan etc etc) if not a standalone book.

Also, how can manly tears be negative?

>> No.51390535

They are good, it's just a bit of a pain because in squads they are quite survivable but they have to shoot at whatever your squad shoots at unless you want to waste an order.

But on the other hand, by themselves a squad of autocannons/lascannons can rape face, but they are quite vulnerable and will be focussed so you need to get into decent cover with them.

They are quite good if you can spare a vet team with forward sentries and camp them in some ruins, but you still only get one team. My favourite thing to do is take sergeant Harker, Autocannon squad, 3 sniper rifles and forward sentries. Then you camp them in some decent cover. It's pretty expensive for what it is, but it is quite fun and survivable if they dont get targeted with ignore cover.

Ultramar is Spehs Rome. Roboute Gulliman is Not!Augustus right down to the mild autism for law making and naming himself the 'Avenging Son' when he thinks his Dad is kill. Ultramarines are Romans in spehs, they are armed with gladii, their PDFs are called Auxilia, they wear traversal crests and cingulum.

The Fall of Cadia book is like 75% campaign text with some pictures and little boxes of vox messages and character's thoughts during the story.

There is a guide for 'bone' armour in the Dark Eldar painting guide. First you paint a base coat of rakarth flesh, then you paint the recesses only with a fine detail brush with reikland fleshshade. Then go over the first coat with rakarth flesh again but avoid the darker areas you just shaded but so you can tidy up any areas where the shade spilled over. Then edge highlight with palid wych flesh.

Pic related is the result. Its a bit whiter than in your example. Maybe you could use the same method but substitute it with screaming skull or zandridust/screaming skull for example.

Well you're going to have all of your infantry vulnerable to getting squished on the first turn because they're not in any transports. Granted you can put them in cover to mitigate that a bit but that's going to depend on the layout of the board your on.

Well, okay. I guess that's fair, but I don't have 3 extra leman russes.
Yes, the idea was to have the Valkyries and vets in reserve and have the baneblade get shot to shit and then hope to god it kills something and the Valkyries come up on turn 2. Unless you can't put the vets in the valkyries in reserve.
I was using the one anon's idea of stashing the final veteran squad into a ruin with their camo gear so they'd get a 3+ cover save while the command squad hides somewhere, maybe behind the baneblade.

What's the ideal Guard blob size?
