>> No.51731415

There isn't a formal list, afaik. Kakophani could be used as Noise Marines and a Primarch could be used as a Daemon Prince.

Several Legion-specific units don't really have a 40k equivalent.
The bigger issue is in the weapons department. There are two main issues:
1) Several 30k weapons don't exist in 40k (Volkites, mostly)
2) 30k lists can take many, many more heavy/special weapons. Many more than can be used in an equivalent squad in 40k.
For example, there is no 40k marine squad that can take 10 flamers or meltaguns, and devastators can only take 4 heavy weapons whereas a 30k heavy support squad can take up to 10.

Also, 30k terminators can mix and match weapons, but 40k (loyalist) terminators cannot. That won't affect you much, since you play CSMs, but I feel like I should note it.

Most vehicles have chaos versions in Imperial Armour Volume 13, but you cannot take any jetbikes or land speeders at all.

He was given carte Blanche for the space marines and was apparently obsessed with Roman culture from a young age, he took the oppurtunity to make lore that every chapter wants to be the ultramarines, even if they were second founding out of a different legion, or even a first founder.

Thus, ultramarines rule the world of man now, and with pic related its only going to get worse.

The people in control of GW and who are higher than the writers don't care about the game or lore, its business to them, so people like ward are left unchecked and he is just the beginning.

I've been getting back into playing 40k and am i the only one that thinks the allies system is ridiculous, especially for a game that should be trying to steer itself away from min-maxing.
It breaks the game with cheesy combinations and ruins the unique qualities of the armies themselves, why invest in any army when you can just google "da bes" guys from each (yes i know it has limitations but still)

It'd take awhile to catalogue everything. I've got several armies and most of them are large, so I couldn't even begin to figure out a cost (especially since AotE would probably devalue most of it).
I've got:
Sisters of Battle
Cadians (metal army and plastic army)
Space Marines (many, many models, much of it unbuilt)
Chaos Daemons
Chaos Marines
Night Lords (30k)
Dark Eldar (3e and modern models)
Necrons (original metal and some plastic, but nothing from 5e or later)
Grey Knights
Various RT bits, inquisitors, ambull, adventurers, etc

If the rumors pan out about 30k remaining nearly the same I'll probably keep the Night Lords and Vostroyans (to use as Solar Auxilia). I'd probably keep the Sisters as well.

>> No.51731881

This is probably the most astounding part of it. It's at least somewhat understandable that UMs are consider the epitome of Space Marines, because of the Codex and all, but I'd think the view that they're basically celebrities to be envied and worshipped rather than just a baseline would be limited mainly to Chapters with close genetic and cultural ties to them. Instead, though, Ward took the opportunity to basically say "lol, your Chapter's lore, culture, history, and Primarch don't really matter, the important thing is that they have anxiety over not being Ultraclones, and really want Girlyman to be their Ultradad".

Ward's UM fetish been discussed to death at this point though, so I'm not even sure why I'm saying this.

Good point, forgot about that entire thing. Gonna drop it, I guess, should have enough bodies to not always need that 2+.

Only non-CAD Detachments and Formations allowing Crusader squads is the Wrathful Crusade formation from Gathering Storm 1 (which includes new Celestine, some Militarum Tempestus and Greyfax) and the new Castellans of the Imperium detachments, which allows Crusader squads and actually only allows Black Templar characters out of all Space Marine uniques.

Maxed out Crusade is pretty good, since you get Zealot on EVERYTHING and especially get a Zealot Celestine on top of getting to re-roll charges and Furious Charge on a 10"+ charge so basically what Black Templar Chapter Tactics should've had.

Castellans can be fun if combined with LRC dedicated transport, since it has a chance to revive them. Getting free Hatred is also alright.

Honestly not a very good casual list. And not in the sense that it isn't strong (it's a casual list after all). But in the sense that it includes annoying gimmicks (orikan + lychguard, the god shackle conclave) that will cause you to stomp some opponents if they don't have the tools for those gimmicks.

Casual lists shouldn't be designed to make your opponent hate themselves. Take some immortals or ghost arks, or maybe some annihilation barges, and be a nice person!

4 Riptides and 2 R'varnas are no good? I thought the latter would hit harder against vehicles/monstrous/gargantuan.

Uh, fucking amazing? They can target units they're in combat with so yeah, who gives a fuck? Also good R&H uses allies (though you've asserted that's not common on competitive play) to run Heralds Anarchic and will swing back on your psykers fast and in a hurry.

Don't suppose on a subject you have no fucking clue about. You've consistently demonstrated (I'm going to make the safe assumption you're the guy who suggest Demons, KDK, and R&H aren't competitive but a Decurion is) you know nothing of competitive play.

>> No.51732669

Look man, I'm just giving you the facts. You have 4 bad units, making the Land Raider ObjecSec is certainly nice, but not 240 pts of nice. The characters and the core infantry are likewise overpriced.

When I'm saying that Chaplains are overpriced, that's in their best job. Even when doing the shit they should be great at, where you might think, oh here, they must obviously be great, they are still meh. Same thing goes for the Techmarine, even when in an army with a Land Raider he still won't be worth it. Because most non-shit armies can one turn kill a Land Raider, making him useless.

4 Riptides is stronk, but r'varnas are considered less optimal for the points cost than standard riptides. y'varhas tend to be pretty good.

I know that the best way to play a fluffy and decent Black Templar army is to not play anything that is fluffy for them. I was trying to make it somehow, in any way, possible to maybe use a Land Raider for once and not make it useless the moment a Tactical squad looks at them.
I've tried to make anything involving Cursader squads and Land Raiders work for the entirety of 7e and am still trying to possibly pull it off. Every single one of those units has deep-sitting problems these days that probably can't fully be fixed at all without extensive reworking of the entire meta and buffing them, I'm just attempting to do some damage control of finding a way to make a LRC Crusader squad usable at all.

To respond to another anon asking about Autocannons for IG. I agree that they don't really do much for me. Due to their stats they are very flexible weapons. On paper they are decent at taking off hull points on AV13 or lower and they are good at wounding MCs and they are not that wasteful to shoot at infantry units.

However, they never do much in my games. They may take a hull point here or there, and sometimes they do a wound to a Monstrous Creature, but the wounds are usually saved. Lasguns and Punishers usually end up doing the most to MCs in my games. The reason I take Autocannons is to put in the Infantry Blobs because they are rarely wasted there and make sure the unit is almost never out of targets. I prefer Multi-lasers personally, but those only come on Chimeras and Sentinels. If an Infantry blob could take a Multi-laser I would be ecstatic.

Not as far as I know. The difference is that even Carcharadon/Red Scorpion/Mantis Warrior models/units are still taken from Codex: Astra Militarum, you're simply using difference chapter tactics. FW's IG variants are from entirely different books altogether. In other words, I'm still taking a "Space Marine Tactical Squad" from Codex: Space Marines, which is allowed by the Castellans rules, but it doesn't say I can take a "Death Korps of Kriege Infantry Platoon," so I can't take it.

RAW I don't think it's allowed, but in casual play I'd sure as hell allow it.

No one has ever accused the Imperium of being intelligent.
In meta terms, the IG allowed horned beastmen back in Rogue Trader, but in a White Dwarf introducing Abhuman Doctrines back when Doctrines were a thing, they allowed non-horned beastmen. The reasoning presented was that non-horned beastmen are "stable" enough abhumans to be treated like second (or third) class citizens, much like other abhumans. However, it specifically said beastmen with horns weren't allowed to join (and are probably killed on sight) because of the chaos reasoning I mentioned earlier.

That was the last time they were mentioned, as far as I know.
And that was late 3e/early 4e.

Technically, I don't think it can hold riptides until it gets revised in IA14 (I heard an insider say they were dropping the IA numbering system. I hope it's not true because it's gonna get confusing real quick using the abbreviation FoC, especially for AdMech players).
Upper deck may transport 55 infantry (any class) models.

It can carry way more than that. In addition to the upper deck, the lower deck may carry 145 models, with a maximum of up to eight Crisis suits or up to 4 Hammer/Sky/Devils (at 30 models each).

It's got the room for riptides, (Lower deck has the physical space for an entire Tigershark to fit in it, 6:35 https://youtu.be/QwvlosMaqAE?t=6m35s) but since they aren't infantry and they aren't vehichles, they can't board.

They drop down and everything with in 6" of the raider gets -4ld and everything in 12" gets -2ld. Raiders are actually about 7inch long so this is a bigger area then it sounds. Unload one shadowseer and the medusa/truborne, Then use psychic shriek to decimate, at -4ld they are looking to do 5 or 6 wounds to 10ld unites. Medusa put down a bunch of s4 ap3 templates or truborne to blow up a vehicle. You can hopefully soulburst for more damage.

problem is, tau and crons are AOC, so that means that tau are somehow related to crons, also farsight is going to do something.

Can't markerlights turn missiles into D weapons?

>> No.51734564

Only Destroyer Missiles. Not Seeker Missiles or Missile Pods or any other kind of Missile.
And only Stormsurges carry Destroyer Missiles. Which, despite their name, aren't Strength D without a Markerlight.

Friend of mine getting into eldar. Cloudstrike rule on Falcons say if they are a squadron of 3, they can deep strike. He wants to take three squads of fire dragons and cloudstrike them.

This doesn't work right? I'm pretty sure that doesn't work. Unless we were playing apocalypse and he used the formation for it I think?

it's perfectly legit and not a formation; it's also not the most powerful thing in the book

But how do you get dedicated transports into a squadron with each other so they fulfill the requirements? Wouldn't you be able to combine scout troop dedicated transports with non-scout transports and outflank all 3 if you could do that? You can't embark reserves before or during the game either as far as I know.

"Not the most powerful thing in the book" isn't saying much either. I would still lose hundreds of points worth of vehicles turn 2.

Cloudstrike is both a special rule on Falcons and an apoc formation, according to the rules wiki, which got in the way when I tried googling this.

>> No.51734700

You can start embarked on a reserved transport, otherwise flying transports wouldn't work.

>> No.51734741

Scout Sentinels. I loved using them in DoW. How are they on the table?

>> No.51734753

better than standard, outflank with a heavy flamer/multilaser against armies that aren't tau/eldar/sm and enjoy.

Where should I start with a tournament worthy Space Wolves list?

>> No.51734771

I play against Necrons and Tyranids.

I'm not really keen on Tanks or Artillery... I mean, I guess I could run a Leman Russ, but I'd rather have some Scout Sentinels instead of a Wyvern. Are Scout Sentinels good alongside Veterans that don't take the grenadier upgrade, or would they support large platoons better?

here's the page you'll need to read. it is odd to see a formation the same name as a special rule, i guess gw forgot about the apoc formation

>> No.51734817

Voidclaw detachment is what I think I'm gonna go with, but other than twc and wulfen I don't know what else to fill it up cause I'm still pretty new to the competitive part. I'm probably going to end up throwing in a stormwolf and leviathan dread somewhere in there to deal with an armor heavy list.

>> No.51734825

You can get 6 renegade sentinels with heavy flamers for 120 points but they're not very competitive as a choice anywhere.

>> No.51734866

Tyranids aren't going to give much of a shit against sentinels, but they can be useful against crons by outflanking into rear armor. Armored sentinels can be good as well, as warriors can't damage them in CC.

>> No.51734881

Like in imperial agents? Because those don't work. Flyers as dedicated transports obviously still work.

I didn't see anything on embarking in reserve when I looked over it after my friend asked me, and I still don't now. As far as I know It has always been that if a unit can't start on a dedicated transport then you need to deploy them on the field and spend turn 1 embarking.

What I am saying is the problem there is that it requires the three to be in a squadron together to cloudstrike. So you either need to have a way to put dedicated transports into a squadron, or a way to put units onto a vehicle in reserve/pregame, or play apocalypse. If either of the first two are possible, I have spent half an hour trying to find it and found no mention of it, and previous experience and time spent discussing getting SoB units into flyers and assault transports tells me you can't do it (though faction was an additional obstacle there).

My two friends have a tendency to just play units they like, so I'm trying to do the same. I don't think the Necron player actually has any Ghost Arks yet, so I dunno if I even want to run the meltas.

This list is probably pretty schizo.

>> No.51734953

That's only for transports from separate factions.

During deployment, when deciding which units are kept as Reserves, you must specify if
any of the Independent Characters in Reserve are joining a unit, in which case they must
arrive together. Similarly, you must specify if any units in Reserve are embarked upon
any Transport vehicles in Reserve, in which case they will arrive together. In either case,
when making a Reserve Roll (see below) for a combined unit, roll a single dice for the
unit and/or its Independent Character/Transport vehicle.

Is the relevant rules text.

>> No.51734954

OUTFLANK is your best friend. They cannot be shot until turn 2, at which point they automatically get the Side or Rear of enemy armour depending on how far forward they are.

3 Scout sentinels armed with auto-cannons can instantly destroy a Leman Russ simply by slamming it's squishy rear armour with massed S7 shots. And the Leman russ is vastly more expensive than the 3 scout sentinels.

>> No.51734960

actually you just take a single heavy support slot in a CAD. while it's true that's it's not a dedicated transport while in CAD (possibly formation of aspect warhost for bs5 on the fire dragons) you can put any unit in a vehicle.

this is like putting elite terminators in a landraider bought from heavy support

>> No.51734968

I'd give the onager an icarus array, just a better choice and the more take all comers option

>> No.51734973

I'd have to drop a few points to afford that, but I could do it. Maybe the Vox Casters?

>> No.51734987

I'd use autocannons over heavy flamers on the sentinels and put the flamers on the chimera. The chimera will be going forward anyway and this lets you keep scout sentinels safer.

>> No.51734992

Is it viable by way of the new Renegades formation that allows your dead infantry squads to return outflanking on a 2+?

>> No.51735021

Good idea.

On all 3 Chimeras, you think? Should I even keep the meltas if nobody in my group really runs vehicles?

>> No.51735051

You can only fire both weapons, so you might as well. You can swap to two plasma if the melta aren't going to be useful and fire those from the chimera.

>> No.51735067

Only fire both weapons if you stay stationary*

>> No.51735069

Well shit, I guess when I saw that I just assumed it was referring to dedicated transports.

>> No.51735087

IIRC you can fire both if you only move combat speed.

>> No.51735107

Nope only one for combat speed. It's stupid but what can you do.

>> No.51735116

I think I want to give an Icarus Array to the Dunecrawler, but I'm not sure where to cut points to afford it and stay at 1000.

>> No.51735128

Actually, that makes it Skyfire, and I /think/ the only flying unit any of us own is the 'Nid guy's Flyrant.

>> No.51735134

Maybe go with the twinlinked phosphor blaster instead? It's cheaper but you still get 3 S6 twinlinked shots with lumigen.

>> No.51735145

I could do that, and drop the Vox-Casters. I don't really think I'll need them.

>> No.51735148

Skyfire can hit skimmers too.

>> No.51735223

You can fire one weapon normally at combat speed and fire all others as snap shots. You can't fire certain weapons as snap shots though, which could restrict you. Templates and blasts cannot be snap shot.

If you go cruising speed you can still fire, but everything is a snap shot.

>> No.51735247

I'm aware of how snapshots work. I was just thinking about heavy vehicles instead of what vehicles in general could move and shoot.

Fine for casual play with non-powergaming friends. Will get stomped against anything slightly competitive.

I like to run a white scars librarius conclave with my admech. The hunters eye and prescience on a group of 6 kataphron destroyers deletes a lot of stuff. It also lets me fish for misfortune for my vanguard 6s being two ap 2 wounds is great.
