Posting in this thread since the last one got nuked.

Fascist Space Marine anon again. How's this for a color scheme? I've decided on naming them the Iron Eagles. They're strictly Chapter compliant except for the fact that they worship the State as God. They also love chaplains and have their own secret police force who kill any of their citizens who don't seem like they love the State as much as they do.

Any ideas on what their tactics would be? I'm thinking a heavy focus on vehicles and Blitzkrieg but I also have never played Loyalists before.

I'd give the nobz with kombi-rokkits and warboss ammo runts. I think you can also get some mek gunz if you drop the boarding planks. The trukks are generally considered a temperary thing so the less you invest in them the less it hurts to lose them.

Ammo Runts seem like they'd be a good idea. I want to keep the Boarding Planks because if they do get close enough to charge, then they'll help get a nice distance, with a 4" minimum, and 14" maximum being pretty nice. I was thinking about maybe taking a Mekboy or two to make sure the Warboss' ride was nice and safe, as well as just for their pretty cool gear.

If I take 1 Mekgun, which should I take? The AA one and the Kustom Mega Kannon seem like good ideas, or maybe the Smasha Gun.

I got a question about these new morale changes. So if I got a squad of guardsmen with a leadership of 7 and 7 guardsmen die, am I always guaranteed to lose a guardsman and potentially up to 6 more? I feel like the new rules for morale as I understand them pretty much eliminate all those cool moments where a few dudes rally or refuse to break and do something heroic. The morale change doesn't seem to be taken too poorly so I imagine it is fixing something from 7th edition. Can anyone explain why this is being changed? Not trying to harp on it mind you, just asking to understand.

Why? Not sure. Probably to generally buff hordes a bit. Nothing worse than blobs losing morale turn 1 and running off the board because 4 guys died or something. They'll have to readjust Leadership scores anyway.

I've pointed it out yesterday, but the current scored break the system for any unit with 3 models and a 7+ Ld score. Kill 1? D6+1 is at max 7, so no morale fail. Kill 2? At worst the unit is cleared if you roll a 6. Have 8 Ld? Only way to break morale is by losing 3 models, which means the unit is kill anyway.

Yeah, that sounds like a good idea to me!

Think of it this way. They're basically replacing moments where the entire squad is falling back with you occasionally having a dude scamper away or a bunch run off instead. More key, if your guardsmen are holding a position, they'll continue to hold it so long as some of the guys are left. This makes them less likely to get entirely swept in combat.

Plus, you'll have to consider that most armies will probably have some way to mitigate this. I'd imagine Guard will be able to get commisars to cap the number of fleeing guys at 1 a lot of the time.

Also if you're running 10 man squads you may as well put the 3rd special weapon on the vanguard squad. Don't run rangers with the sniper in a 10 man squad, you're current setup means you'd have 8 guys sitting in the back with their thumbs up their asses while the snipers shoot at things. Really I'd just go with arc rifles. Also I wouldn't bother with an arc pistol on the vanguard alpha. A single haywire shot isn't really worth it, no point in mixing plasma and haywire.

I think a lot of the fear also comes from units with fearless, zealot, or ATSKNF and how morale will affect them. I know I'm kind of scared for my Rubrics. They were already fucked if they got charged, but if the new rules are true then they won't be able to even tarpit.

>>52337943
Drop the Arquebi , first off. They're unfortunately very bad and outclassed by the alternstives in every way.

Adding Ironstriders/Dragoons to fill always works. More Vanguard also never hurt. You could also use Cawl as the Dominus Maniple Tech-Priest and save yourself those points, the just add more Skittles using a Skitarii Maniple. Pretty much their entire codex is decent so just going with what you like the most is usually fine. Keep in mind that, generally speaking, Infiltrators > Ruststalkers and Dragoons > Ballistarii.

Also, I'd consider using Cawl at 1000 points pretty serious cheese since there is barely anything able to kill or even seriously hurt him. Unless your enemy beings D or Force weapons, expect to virtually never lose him.

>> No.52338026

>>52337950
I'm still not sold on this new leadership stuff, though I suppose it'll work out. On the one hand, I like that small squads don't have to load up on extra bodies just to edge out what counts as 25%. For hordes, the extra casualties will be annoying, but it feels like most of the time it'll be better, since rather than falling back you're just removing a few guys from the back of the unit and continuing to advance.

It's actually far worse for elite squads once they adjust things, which they'll need to do since they can't have units like basic 5 man Skitarii troops with a 9 Ld Alpha be near unbreakable while any unit with a character and 5 dudes will just be plain unbreakable.

Cawl (and Greyfax, but that's irrelevant for you) can replace their generic counterpart in any formation. You can even have a Holy Requisitioner and Deep Strike him in, for example.

A single five man squad with aruebi isn't terrible. They aren't amazing but they can pop light vehicles reasonably well, though arc rifles are just all around better than them even if they have less range. Really the 60" range is overkill on most boards, especially at 1000pts.

One final question: What bits designate a Ranger Alpha (does he get like a special helmet or something?), and does a single box come with bits to make two? I know you're only supposed to get one per box but maybe there's options like the tactical squad coming with two non-helmeted heads.

Just save yourself the 20 points and give them 2 Arcs instead. They have Move Through Cover anyway, so you'll want them dashing across the table a lot, usually much close to the enemy than what Arquebi would want, while being able to easily flank vehicles and seize points. The Haywire shots will be great against vehicles while Plasma kills any MCs and characters, so Arquebi are pretty obsolete as they only have Ap 3 as well and thus don't get a bonus on armor pen results.

IIRC there isn't really anything about the ranger alphas unlike the vanguards which have different helmets, though there is a set of arms you can use.

Don't have the math at hand, but aren't Galvanic Rifles and Rad Carbines evening out in terms of wounding anyway? Though that Bolters and Rads were about the same chance to wound and Galvanics are effectively Bolter statted.

Wow. That's a legitimately solid option. 100pts flat for what, 15 I4 S4 Ap2 attacks on the charge? I suppose no assault vehicle is a problem.

I'm really not sure why bolter and flamers are the same price, though. Honestly, not complaining. 75 pts for 5 flamers is actually really cheap, 15pts cheaper than SoB AND have the option to get more.

Also, you didn't mention this part, so I'll post it for anyone else interested. What I find strange is that there are no warlord traits for SoS, but there are for Custodes.

Are there no movies/comic books in the 31st millennium? It should be obvious that the future he is trying to prevent could also be caused by his actions in the first place.
Magnus even tells him as much but he still decides to listen to Erebitch even though he was masquerading as Sejanus?
Also after the 3rd book I heard HH starts splitting up into different perspectives of the same time frames for the next 20 books or so

Well it's not terrible. I will generally advocate MSU personally as an admech player, but there isn't anything necessarily wrong with it.

I'm sure there could be an exception for SoS considering how limited they are. They literally can't field a CAD. There's a tournament near me with Highlander style rules, which means you can't repeat units, and can't take a second troop until you've taken a FA, Elite, and heavy. Obviously, Sisters would have to take a second troop, which they did. If you really want to run SoS for an 850 tournament, ask the TO. I highly doubt SoS taking more SoS would break anything.

I would contest that point. I do not believe vanguard to be better than rangers. The increased range on the rangers in addition to the move through cover special rule make them quite usefull. Rangers will already be starting to shoot at a point when your vanguard will still have to take another turn or so to get in range. Furthermore at the vanguards optimal range of 18 they only beat out rangers by one shot. Precision shots on the galvanic riffles will let you pop special weapons as well. The only advantage that Vanguard get is that their cancer guns will always cause a wound on a 6. They both have their place, but I would not say that either is objectively superior to the other, simply that they have different utilities.

Vanguards don't always just cause a wound on a 6, they cause two. It's mostly this and the fact that they are cheaper that makes them better.

Rangers hit about 3 to 4, Vanguards hit about 10.

Rapid fire at 15, which is admittedly 3 inches shorter but by the time you get your vanguard into 18 you can probably get your rangers into 15. I suppose I should have been clearer about that. Most of your vanguard are going to die to the 24inch and greater weapons before they get in range tbqh, so that really doesn't matter all that much to me.

Admittedly it also depends on how you do your deployment zones. If there's only a 24" no mans land then you can get into that 18" pretty quickly with the scout movement and your normal movement unless they deploy everything at the very back of their deployment zone.

Drop the uge choppas on any Ork with a slugga. The extra attack is better or basically the same against anything you aren't going to PK.

Put riggas on the wagon, drop planks from the trukks. Too expensive for your death traps, keep them cheap. Best upgrade to a trukk is a second spare trukk. Rams are good though.

Consider evy on trukkboyz, it stops squads disintegrating when their ride inevitably explodes.

Don't think of it as trusting GW. Think of it as bracing for impact, so that you can climb out on top and enjoy the experience.

We had a feeling that some form of AOSification was coming because AOS has been doing well. Every time I see Demos of AOS, and 40k run for people back to back they seem to chose AOS 9/10 to go into because they liked how clean the rules play.

Hell I've gotten people into miniatures gaming who wouldn't have otherwise because the games rules are simple to learn, easy to pick up on, and offered a lot of tactical diversity. Getting new players into 40K is important, and lets face it 20-30 year olds (the real gold mines for GW. Old enough to have good jobs but young enough to not have kids) don't want to spend 4 hours playing one game. If they have 4 hours to play they want to get in 2 or 3 games.

From what I found from rumors is the main rules of the game will be something like 10pages long (so nearly triple AOS) so if that rumor is true than game complexity will be between HH and AOS. So lets see how it goes. I'm not trusting this to be perfect, I'm just trusting that it will be playable. Relatively easy to teach new players, and not be slogged down.

See, people picked up on that Age of Sigmar does nothing to encourage tactical thinking, and in fact at face value favours a bum-rush at the foe.

AoS guys responded "Well you -can- use tactics" missing the point that the criticism is there's no -encouragement- to do so in the game structure. It replaced a game where careful maneuvering was half the reason you win. (The other half is deathstars. 8th edition was not a good version of WHFB)

This somehow mutated into trolling claims that AoS is a super tactical experience, including the honestly quite cleverly trollish claims that double turns and no initiative, aka the areas where it most fails as a simplified ruleset resulting in a slapdash play experience, "Add tactical depth."

So I went and had my first go of actually playing today.

Dude that taught me was a bit nervous about it, but did a decent job, and got a nifty card for his trouble.
I had 7 Gets Hot issues from a cannon, a plasma gun and a pistol, and the cannon and pistol took themselves out. Only thing that didn't cause trouble was the plasma gun on my ravenwing biker.

I basically lost to his helbrute alone. A few things tickled me down, but that was the real killer. I almost glanced it to death, but it wasn't to be.

All in all, it was good fun. I feel like you basically need terrain to get the most out of the game, though, as buildings and stuff added a lot.

Do you love the CSM of "everything is arbitrarily expensive" so much that you'll make life harder for yourself?
You can pair a chainfist with a lightning claw and choose which weapon profile you want to use, and either way get +1 Attack for 2x Specialist Weapon.

Current AC's are AP 4, if they follow AoS with Rend being 1-3

Most likely progression will be:
Ap 1-2 rend 3
Ap 3-4 rend 2
Ap 5-6 rend 1
Ap - rend 0

Ap 1 and 4 are the jokers
Ap 1 will be the best, but as there's no 1+ personal amour it's likely going to be rend 3 with a anti-tank bonus
Ap 4 can go either way, it pierces most infantry armour in the game so they might split it across rend 1 and 2 depending on the individual weapon.

it's not going to be so simple a swap, I think

2e was a very different environment to 3e+. Basic units couldn't rapid fire if they moved. Hell, most armies in the game couldn't rapid fire period. There was no way to swamp armies with loads of saves from shitty piddly weapons with -1 modifiers.

Either modifiers will not be as severe as they were previously, or units will have significantly more durability than they do now, or how shooting weapons operate in general will be changed.

Like, if you ported 2e's modifiers over exactly, flame weapons would be EVEN MORE ridiculous with their -2 modifiers and automatic hits. Heavy flamers had a -3 modifier. But it was fine because A: getting close was more difficult and B: people couldn't easily get their hands on units with 3-5 (or more) flamers in a squad.

What would be the best way to shave a point off of this?

>inb4 take off a sniper rifle

The reason I am asking is because I am just unsure if throwing a bolter on a scout will throw off the usefulness of the unit, I plan to park them in ruins and have them be a 36'' bubble of pain-in-the-ass

Hell yeah son, look for it in the Rise of the Primarch and Raw-butts conquering a planet and presented with this laurel from the local governor.

It bascially gives him visions of grandeur and how he would make Ultramar in the best-est mini-empire in the imperium; he basically snaps out of it and tells Fulgrim (whom had part of his essence imbued into the corrupted laurel) to fuck off and that he'd bash in his deamonic shit-face because of his stabbing ways.

So in short, Fulgrim tried to put a ring on it and Raw-butt told his basic-bitch-ass to fuck off, continued by him setting out to Make The Imperium Great Again.

My head-canon would be a good few of them still hold their dour, sombre tone but a further good few, after millennia of giggling nurglings, rumbling belly laughs from Great Uncleans who spread Nurgles "love" across the Galaxy would eventually warp their minds, and just like their deity and his Patrons would start to find the joy in their situation and endless work.

He doesn't have a rageboner, he probably just broods in his mancave he recreated in the shape of his home planet. He doesn't hate Nurgle even, papa is just a jolly voice in his head he can't stand. But Morty just wears a ragged and dirty bathrobe, has millenia-old remnants of pizzas and cereal bowls scattered everywhere. He hates himself for giving in, because now he can't even kill himself.

Sometimes Typhus comes to convince a handful of marines to follow him. Morty hates him a lot, barely less than he hates himself trough.
