I wish the Word Bearers were the posterboys for Chaos, instead of the Black Legion. Actually have the Chaos Legion be the face of Chaos itself. It would make a lot more sense than Abaddon and his army of failures. It would make a lot more sense because Ultramarines are the face of the loyalist Space Marines. It would make more sense because of the Red versus Blue theme.

I just hate ADB/GW's love of Abaddon. Does anyone else hate Abaddon too?

I'd love to see Imperial Guard tactics, though I feel like they should reflect the general idea of the force rather than being specific.

For Cadians, for example, it should be Adamantium Will for regiments that routinely deal with psykers and other horrifying BS, and other bonuses to holding a line against terrifying things.

Catachans would represent deathworlders as a whole, Furious Charge to show their extra toughness, and Stealth or Move Through Cover for their survival skills.

Stuff like that where you can further customize a guard force.

I think there's something like that in Imperial armour 3 actually. A random upgrade for Talleran Desert raiders that gives them move through cover but prevents them from taking Carapace armor.

Problem is it's hella expensive, when realistically fluffy stuff like that should just be a free option alongside other choices, especially if it comes with a built-in downside like that.

I feel like it should be a supplement of IG and MT since MT is shit right now.
Like for Harakoni warhawks, you run a tempestus list with the following regiment tactics:
"May not take tauroxes or commissars, may take vendettas, vultures and tarantula turrets, may use stormtrooper mission "operation hot drop": scion squads may assault after exiting a valkyrie if they do not shoot".
Also all tempestus scions gain a pistol in addition to their ccw.

Yeah. I'm picturing it like a sort of Traitor Legion style update for both the guard books with formations and detatchments with special rules for building your army a certain way, along with neat relics and warlord traits for all of them.

Steel Legion would have formations for tanks and mechanized infantry to an improved degree. Probably bonuses for firing out of transports/when exiting them and ignoring the lower damage table results and things like that.

Could even have something like that start collecting formation where dudes get a cover save for standing near their tank.

Just got paid after working overtime all weekend. Think I'm going to add on to my new BA army but unsure what to get. So far I have...
1 10 manTatical Marine squad
1 3 man bike squad
5 5 man Death Company squads
1 Death Company Dreadnaught
1 Dreadnaught I haven't built yet that I can turn into a DC, Furioso, Librarian, or normal Dreadnaught.
Astorath
BA Terminator Captain
DC Chaplain
1 Baal Pred
1 Stormraven Gunship
And I have Mephiston on order

I feel I need a Drop pod but could also grab a kit that comes with a tac squad and a Rhino. Also tempted to grab the Sanguinary Guard or Ravenwatch bike squad just to make my bikes look more Blood Angely.

Abaddon is a badass in his own way; but I think past his whole maturation arc into becoming master of the Black legion, no one really knows what to do with him. On one hand, hes as much of a chessmaster as his Primarch. On the other hand, he has to get down and dirty on the ground like its Thanos versus the Justice League all Saturday every Saturday.

Invulnerable saves are usually supposed to be some sort of shielding, right? What if when making saves, you rolled the invulnerable save first followed by the armor save?

That's just bad luck. I've been playing them since 4th, and I remember the first save I made. I had a lone sister take a meltagun to the face, save, and then proceed to explode a rhino.

Drop pod would only be good if you know what you want in it, so the box with a Rhino might be a better call.

Not certain on the Dreadnought, though I would say Fusurio or Librarian might fit in better. Standard dread would be an option if you feel lacking in long range fire support.

It makes some sense. The big thing a lot of unit types determine is how far something moves and the default special rules.

That sounds terrifying. I'm pretty sure that's immune to anything below S 7, and giving it some ludicrous 1+ save means that any low AP guns wouldn't be able to scratch it. You really would need lascannons and meltaguns for the decent chance to wound and bypass the armor.

Yeah. Toughness 10 means a Lascannon wounds on a 5, which is normal for the current rules. The -6 will basically get rid of any sort of save, and from there you need 3 average hits to get through the 8 wounds, with a minimum of 2.

Still quite a few shots, but assuming you just removed the vehicle damage chart from the current rules, you'd still be looking at 12 hits to get through it. If anything, 8 wounds is easier to chew through if weapons are dealing multiple wounds per shot.

Mortally wounded? The stab barely did anything to him and the Celestine was the one who ran after the stabbing.

He wanted to go after her and get his revenge but he saw that he ran out of time. He teleported away and the first thing he did was sit in hi throne and drink wine from Horus's skull as he ordered Cadia to be destroyed.

Heck, he didn't even rest. He went on the next battle pursuing the Imperials and then ending up fighting Ynnari and Imperials on the ice moon.

I mean seriously you morons understand nothing about how marine bodies work. Ever heard of the Black Carapace? Cite me a single marine who died from a back injury. You can't.

Also 130 point vendettas and 100 point valks are better value or you can pay +25 points for the valk and give it +1 BS and all have deep strike anyway.

Because most aren't any tougher than a regular pleb soldier they command.
Also the game reserves sniping for actual snipers. You can't do it with a regular rifle so you sure as hell can't to it with a rocket. Plus it puts to much favour in the player who shoots first if they have an easy way to pick out all the enemies special or powerful minis.

>Except what is the fucking point of scattering the shot when the point where the blast actually happens is a complete fucking abstraction?

You'd think wrong, since it was clear that he was referring to save modifiers.

Earlier editions had limitations on how many of what units you could take.

2nd edition specified how many of what units you could take per 1000 points, certain units had minimum points that they could be taken in and armies had very strict rules on what percentage of them could be certain types of things.

3rd edition simplified that general concept by having the force organization chart, which was mandatory and specified that you could only take limited numbers of some units (normally this was just stuff that was 0-1 per army).

Every formation being a legal primary detachment eveb if it contains no characters or troops choices is a terrible mistake and completely eliminates composition as a balancing factor.
