You're forgetting one thing about the Dreadclaw: it's a flier with hover. It doesn't need to be accurate when it can turbo boost into location and jink. It offers protection for a turn, you can assault out of it, and after it dumps it's load, it goes around harassing objectives and shitting fire on people.

I made a deal with my friend.

I have been playing sisters fluffed as https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Obsidian_Mirror against his Dark Angels, in matches that have escalated from 500pt to 2000pt games. So few to no priests, no Celestine, lots of special weapons in small groups. I wanted to use the homebrew rules there (https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Obsidian_Mirror#Playing_the_Obsidian_Order), so I offered for his Hatred and Preferred Enemy (Chaos Space Marines) to include (Order of the Obsidian Mirror) in exchange for allowing me to use them. Additionally, I probably won't ever field Celestine while using those rules, just because.

His play style usually includes lots of deep striking deathwatch terminators, and ravenwing bikes, with some heavy armor that may or may not be transporting assault terminators.

Who do you think got the better end of the stick, ignoring fluff?

Craftworld formations don't really break anything unless you're using them to boost units that are already broken. The wraith hosts formations rule isn't the problem, it's that it makes the already bullshit wraith knight better.

I feel like your opponent got the better deal there. Fear is just going to slide off Dark Angels and whilst Stealth is nice, I don't think that it's quite as good as Hatred and Preferred Enemy against you.

Looks fairly similar to my own, though I don't really get what Chaos Sorcery is supposed to do, Blessing of Tzeentch seems like a pretty pointless change and Favoured of Tzeentch is still useless.

Harlequins aren't taken because the tax on their special detachment is huge and they can't field a standard CAD (no HQ). The Ynnari can take a 10 point HQ and some jetbike troops to unlock half a dozen Harlequin psykers, who get a primaris that's nearly as game breaking as invisibility.

Allows regular Sorcerers to generate from Divination and Telekinesis, like the Scarab Occult Sorcerer and Exalted Sorcerer.

> Blessing of Tzeentch seems like a pretty pointless change
It's essentially turning your Invuln into FNP. It's a pretty big shift (probably a bit too big, I've been thinking about dropping Rubricae to a 5++).

> Favoured of Tzeentch is still useless
Favored of Tzeentch will pretty much always be useless. Either baseline Tzeentch units are super weak without it, or they're viable without it and OP with it. The real version is extremely powerful, but it's too difficult to unlock and doesn't mesh with what I did with Blessing of Tzeentch.

>elegant fix to make Doombolt the primaris
But then Tzeentch's Firestorm is still dogshit, and Doombolt primaris would be absurdly good. Doombolt is a power that could be justified as WC1 or 2, and I don't think it would be a balanced WC1 primaris power. If I was going to make additional spell changes, I'd do something about Boon of Mutation. Maybe add +/-1 to the result? Maybe reroll one of the dice?

I'd just remove Boon of Mutation, it makes no sense for a legion thats entire schtick was going to aburd length to rid themselves of Mutations.

Anyway my changes to Blessings of Tzeentch and Favoured of Tzeentch were to keep the former as is but make the latter only let you reroll invulnerable saves but give it by default instead of having to fill out you formations.

That may make the Thousand Sons a bit too dependant on it though.

I thought as much, but wanted another opinion. Thanks.

Yeah I don't think terror doctrine is really the brightest tactic to use against marines, and stealth means less with power armor and all units having a 6++ by default. Less priests combined with my buddy's Hatred on half his units and almost every HQ ensures his dominance in melee, especially on the Deathwing Knights with their Hammer of Wrath.

With my stuff, I wanted to (A) change as little as possible (ergo leaving in Boon and Siphon magic, not cutting out Ahriman's Exiles and Rehati and rolling them into the War Coven, etc)) and (B) bring the Thousand Sons into line with the other cult legions (ergo Fearless on the detachment bonus and keeping Favor as a "sacred number of units" thing).

I'd bet money that it's purely because of the kit. Each jetbike is on a little sprue of its own, and each sprue has both a Scatter Laser and Shruiken Cannon on it, alongside the Catapults.

In terms of rules mechanics? No more charts to hit or wound, everything rolls on fixed numbers. A Tactical Marine needs, say, a 3+ to hit and 4+ to wound regardless of if he's shooting at Grots or Carnifexes. Initiative stat removed, replaced with the players choosing alternating units to make melee attacks. Ranges being measured from the model, not the base.

As in the literal settings within the greater 40K setting.

>Can't really deal with MCs
You can't deal with Riptide and Wraithknights. Hydra Flakk Tanks are, point of point, one of the best anti-FMC units in the game, and most codexes don't really have access to the kind of firepower needed to deal with Riptide and Wraithknights. That's why those two are considered some of the most OP units in the game. You can deal with Tyranids or Dark Eldar or (non 2++ abusing Daemon) MC's just fine.

I think that Guard are one of the better balanced books, and I think the top end of codexes (Eldar, Tau, Marines, Daemons) need to be brought down to their level rather than the other way around.

depends on the legion rules, how you deploy and army you are fighting. I'm not up on legion rules but i can say reasonably if you go first you can be up the mid point by turn 2-3 and using your weapons.

Taking combi weapons on rhins is cheap but i've not been fond of it, arguably if you want to go all plasma going melta combi would allow you to pick your targets better but it does mean you have a very fragile body for it to sit on.

Retribution work better with HF or HB the first with pipelines the later with Vyridian and/or someone to give them Prescience.

Not them, but the biggest problem with Repentia is they can't get any transport that allows them to assault from it, unless you ally and embark them turn 1. All of their toughness comes from their AoF and a priest's War Hymns which are assault phase stuff. Init 1 doesn't help.

ward hate is an old meme, at this point in the game's madness many 40k players would suck dick for ward's return

his main sin was creating change, and aversion to change is a classic symptom of autism. on a more serious note, the only thing I hate about ward is that he made necrons into a generic villains instead of keeping them a mysterious, unfeeling force in the galaxy. And he made the ctan lore shit. Other than that, ward is good relative to nu-40k. He made marines too strong and iirc he was responsible for 5th grey knights (or was that somebody else?).

You've been asleep for 60 million years. You sold our your mortality and, in return, literally accomplished deicide. Your gods aren't just products of belief, but are literal forces of nature. You developed the technology to CAPTURE those gods and use them as tools. Your civilization thrives upon the breaking of fundamental laws of physics. The other races are so far behind your development, they can't even comprehend your actions as anything more than magic.

Every other race in the setting, compared to you, are cavemen. They're, in a figurative sense, just discovering fire but, instead of bowing to you like they should, they're wildly swinging the fire at you and claiming all of your territory as theirs.

You wake up 60 million years after that deicide to find people who are only a few steps away from not even being sapient claiming THEY'RE the most advanced civilization.

Take your throne again, anon. Show the rest of the galaxy who their true rulers are.

Yes. The Vitae Womb means Kriegers can pump out regiments at a significantly higher rate than natural.

Because the only models they have are resin ones from Forgeworld. Before Forgeworld focused on them in Siege of Vraks all they had were some small sketches in the Guard Codex.

I don't play that army so I dunno the specifics but I'm inclined to say no. If you're getting hit hard enough to cause weapons destroyed results, the unit is probably fucked anyway. A one time 50% chance to save your weapon probably isn't worth the points. People like to do the same thing by taking combi-bolters on chaos vindicators, I tried it and it literally never mattered in any game I played.

Unfortunately you're not wrong but that's because it costs 125.
I've preferred the better accuracy as well, though it fits better in a pure skit army because of the BSDT for the 6' +1 ld

Krieg soldiers are the kind of thing that would be less scary if they were not human. They aren't scary because they have masks, or you can't see their eyes, or they are obediant, but because they are completely soulless killing machines trained and bred to throw their lives away, shaped like humans.

Commissar understand the cost of war and the fear it inflicts on soldiers better than anyone, and have spent years training to keep morale up in the more dire of situations at any cost. But then you hand them a squad of people who will without question tackle a genestealer with a combat knife to give you an extra four seconds to set up a heavy bolter before opening fire on both of them.

Commissars understand the humanity in fear better than anyone, and these things lack it.

>> No.51661217

Alright, cool. I was just trying to find something to throw points at to fill out 1k, and I can't see much use in giving 5++ to my alphas.

>> No.51661222

>HB in BSS
Honey just use flamers in those squads maybe 2 meltas in case you lack anti tank for some reason.

HF in the Immolator with Dominion could be more useful, since it can flame the troops that drop from a transport, but that is just a matter of choice.

The HQ is the main issue, it requires a lot of points and gear to work properly at that point just get old or New Celestine or a Priest since now they can be HQ choice for cheap.

You run Melee Canoness in bigger games when you can waste the points

Melee SoB units all share the same problem. No way to get into combat. So Rhino (yours needs one less Repentia for a priest or big cow) are bad for that you need to hope your opponent ignores the Rhino, the Repentias and then he some how does not overwatch them.

Repentias are T3 models with no save that hit at I1. Since everyone and their mothers has S6+ their FnP means shit

>> No.51661223

Last thing I read said they produce something like 20 regiments a year compared to a normal planet producing one every ten years, or something.

But their losses are through the fucking roof, so take that into account.

>> No.51661227


Sorry man, 1 relic limit per model. Below 1k points I usually go for St. Aspira's cloak.

Don't really work with a Rhino. They work best with Jacobus who gives them a 5++ with his Warlord trait, and an additional use of their 3+++. War hymns and Counter attack are the cherry on top.

Just spend the little bit extra for an Immolator. You won't regret it.

>Battle sisters
They're ok where they are in this list, but when you expand this list in the future they won't fit in so well. I'd say double Flamers and a combi-flamer on the superior, or Flamer and a Heavy Flamer.

Lookin' good.

>Dominion Immolator
If you get first turn and you scout, your Immolator is 18" away from your opponent's table edge at the end of your movement phase on turn 1.
Because you're so close, you should consider the Twin-linked Heavy Flamers.

Last I posted people said you should take multi-meltas on immolators by default, so I did. However at this point I'm just thinking of dropping the repentias and crying over my dreams of carnage and bloodshed. At this point I would just love for someone to just make me a shopping list for a small starting army. I've been looking at buying two immolators and a battle sister squad, a repentia squad and a canoness with some assorted special/heavy weapons, but I just don't know anymore. My local meta is really against running special characters and I'm not so hot on them myself, but I guess I might if that's the only way to have a squad of repentias.

>> No.51661311

Skit aren't actually that scary
They wear armour they are heavily modified and like most non-heratech work they aren't designed to be anything more then efficient.
But they are still human, humans that worship a god of machines.
they can be, (if you've read the old works before secularii) anything, tribal skitarii and all they have are mild combat enhancements like drug injectors, weapon armours machine limps.
But they are still recognizable as vibrant personalities.
kreigers are uncanny, if you catch me, like being in a foreign culture you've never met before.

Even the Rangers are probably creepier in battle. They don't move like the normal description of mechanical, they move efficiently. Nothing they do is a waste, so they'll stand in silence, not moving any other muscle than the ones they need to move or shoot. They'll start to move an arm, it'll move at an even fast speed till it's where it needs to be, then it will stop, instantly. And everything they do in a fight is like that. The techpriests have personalities, and the Skitarii do when they're not fighting, but when the imperatives inload they may as well be very effective puppets. Also, they basically never miss. That would be damned creepy to watch, especially when one gets basically crippled by something and doesn't do a damn thing about it, just lies on the ground and keeps fighting if he/she can, until the fight and the engrams end and he can scream.


Pretty much, and I think that the DK would probably have at least some respect for the Skitarii, and probably some crossover if they're working with a forge world.

Shit will happen in real life and that isn't going to make them brain dead, depending where it is located it will even make them more bold and brash if it damages that part of the likely frontal lobe but it won't be an precise science.

Sorry, I didn't properly check their stats before. DCA in the SoB codex look pretty cool. What kind of a transport should they have though? An Immolator?
I guess this would work, and not break my bank either. I can just drop the silly upgrades (power sword, storm bolter) if I'm tight on points, and have these girls be relatively mobile next to my infantry Imperial Guard.

Haven't read Titanicus yet, although it's next on the list if I can find it. Forge of Mars was no masterpiece, but it was certainly worth a read, and I did like the anime Archmagos duel at the end, and the cartographer REEEEing so hard he melted about 50 battle servitors, blew the doors to the bridge open and injured the enemy Archmagos' avatar from angry code. In the Admech, even the mapmakers are badasses. Normally I'd be pissed at him being that OP, but it is fairly standard Archmagos behavior, after Archmagos Draykavac pointing at a Legion battle-automata squad, melting the 3 Castellax and disabling the Praevian's armour with a thought in the Horus Heresy fluff. It's even a mechanic. Rite of Dread Castigation is basically "NO BLOOPS FOR YOU".

You run the old Inquistion codex with a Landraider or the formation from IA.

DCA can survive on their own but a Crusader shield with their 3++ saves help a lot.

With the old Inquisition codex you just added a single 10 Psyker to every squad. Mostly as cheap WC batteries and maybe Prescience or The screech power thingy.

The main problem in this edition of Melee is trying to get there. Even in combat it is rather crap but hey you are in Melee.

Imperial Armor Vol 5, the Siege of Vraks, has the DKoK Siege Regiment. Siege Regiment is focused on artillery I believe. I only know they exist, I have yet to look over them.

Imperial Armor Vol 12, The Fall of Orpheus, has the Krieg Assault Brigade. They focus on drowning things in bodies. Every time they lose an infantry platoon, it goes into ongoing reserve.

Imperial Armor Vol 7, The Siege of Vraks part 3, has the Krieg Armored Battlegroup. Can take HQ tanks, elite tanks, fast attack tanks, heavy support tanks, and troop tanks.
