Drop the 3 marines off the Dev squad and get a metal box for the honour guard. You can't assault out of the Rhino, but you can still get across the table faster and better protected. If you think disembarking the turn before charging is telegraphing your intent, slogging it on foot is going to make your intentions even more obvious; at least a Rhino can make a 12" redirect from a feint or change in battle plan if you so desire, rather than relying on the dice gods for good Run rolls.

So, my LGS owner has essentially put me in charge of 40k in the store and wants me to run an escalation/slow grow league. We want to include prizes with each month, even if they're something small like a box of dudes. What's a good way to go about doing this?

I'm thinking a small monthly ($10?) fee to cover the prize and maybe counting total VPs over the course of each month using Maelstrom missions counting d3 VPs as 2 so it's less randomly swingy. To encourage players to play more people, I'd probably limit recorded matches to being 2 per month per opponent. Hell, maybe I could do best average VPs per opponent or something. Idk.

The group is pretty cool, so I'm not worried about cheesemongers, but I want to keep the atomosphere more relaxed. Not sure how to do that. Maybe secondary categories on the report slips with paint jobs, fluffiness, and sportsmanship or something.

Any ideas?

>> No.52629276

>Any bit of fluff that contradicts their view is somewhere on the spectrum of bad writing to non-canon
This is the natural result of having a view which developed from reading the usually well-written older fluff that is now shit on by newer, much less skilled writers. It's just particularly apparent with Tyranids because they went from being written by writers that loved them to a guy who actively hates them, but they aren't the only race which has suffered from this - even Space Marines have this problem in modern 40k.

>All over fans accept the lore and move on.
No, that's just you. Most people disregard bad writing offhand.

>> No.52629288

My personal setup is a Shas'vre with a Fusion Blaster, Markerlight, and target lock in a small team of 3 with 2 marker drones. You've got 3 markerlights total, Stealth + shrouded for the drones, and the Fusion blaster can fire separately from the burst cannons of the rest of the squad. Further, the Shas'vre can still fire 2 guns.

It isn't an overly specialized squad, but it's good for infiltrating close and marking targets while dishing out some damage.

If you wanted to take it further, you could potentially use a Stealth Team as the bodyguard for a crisis commander, using him as the gun platform and them as a way to give him a great cover save.

Generally, I would say to think of them more like pathfinders. They might not be as efficiently costed, but they have a lot of interesting utility you can give them to support other units.

If the rest of my Tau are painted in the Vior'la scheme (white armour over black bodysuit), would mostly pure black Pathfinders and Broadsides look out of place? I'm taking the Ranged Support Cadre which gives Pathfinders shrouded, but having white all over a supposedly camouflaged unit is triggering to me. I'd like them to be a bit different since Pathfinders and Fire Warriors look quite similar, and I'm running some of the Pathfinders behind an Aegis line among the Fire Warriors.

>> No.52629381

Marker drones are incredibly useful. I make use of them extensively. Even if the Stealth team can't use them, it's only a 3 man squad. That's one fusion shot and a couple burst cannons.

The benefit comes in later, when other things fire on the targets that the stealth team focused on.

Stealth teams also aren't as frail as they seem. Having a 4+ cover save even while standing in the open is quite nice, and if there's basically any cover at all, whether from intervening models, trees, whatever, they shoot up to a 2+ easily. Not only that, but jet pack moves are incredible for protecting you from counter attacks. People really downplay just how great it is sometimes.

If you stuck a commander with a 3 man team with 2 drones, they'd also be majority toughness 4, making them even harder to dislodge.

I will say that the other support systems aren't as good on them. A positional relay or something similar can be thanks to infiltrate, though outside of that there aren't as many great choices.

I do tend to keep my own stealth teams small, though I would say the best way to run a larger squad would be to stick a Commander with them. Have them soak and nullify hits and blast away with burst cannons while he does the real damage with a target lock and BS 5 for whatever guns you want.

The great thing about Tau is that their are a lot of options.

Retalitiation cadre, barracuda ax-5-2 and optimised stealth cadre is enough medium level cheese (I only use 1 riptide/no GCs) to probably enough to take on those mech units and my flyers will fuck up those dakkajets easily.

If that's the case, you should know that even though they can take on regular MEQ, they will fall apart like wet toilet paper if they come head to head with another melee dedicated unit.

Scrap both the landraider and the CCW marines and take three more units of noise marines, giving you access to the Emperor's children Decurion power. You are better off just giving your lord a power weapon and gift of mutation and letting him tag along with one of the noise marine squads.

You won't have anything fast, but you have a decent shooting army that can take on most enemies (except flyers)

>> No.52629705

This: >>52629604
With only 5-6 models in the squad you should be able to all huddle behind the Rhino and block LOS from shooting. Remember it's AV11 front AND side, so you can turn it sideways to maximize its blocking silhouette. Next turn get the Rhino out of the way (bonus points if you Tank Shock a unit other than your Assault target) and the footsloggers continue on as normal.

Worst case scenario is they immobilize/wreck the Rhino as it then becomes an obstacle, and obviously Explodes! hurts the infantry hiding behind it.

consider an invul on the lord. Maybe exchange a LC for a powerfist or at least give him meltabombs so he wont get crunched by a dread or MC (he is fearless he wont run if he cannot hurt dat)
consider giving him a bike to bring his T from 4 to 5 so he wont be killed by S8-9 shooting fast.

dont mix sonic and blastmasters. ever. sonic blasters are for midfield blastmasters want to shoot their blast every turn. also points.

strap the lascannons from the defilers, they can only snapfire those when they shoot their battlecannon (ordnance rules)

you need something to open transports with i.e. higher volume of midstrength shooting. Havocs with autocannons? predator?

if you bring the CSM with the lord to the front, gib the CSM champ some powerweapon or even a fist(lord will take challenges). also meltas or flamers might be worthwile.

Chosen are a 'better' choice but they're also far more expensive. These guys are even an okay match-up against Terminators since they'll kill at least 2 before the Termis get to strike (even if they have Lightning Claws) and likely tarpit the remainder for at least another assault phase, two if they don't have power fists. For Chosen that's roughly equal points parity making it tactical draw, meanwhile basic CSM can tie up and score some kills against a unit that's easily 80-100+ points more expensive.

HAH fuck no I don't at all recommend putting them in a Land Raider. Load them up in a Rhino if you must or just throw them across the board to catch bullets.

Lads. I'm confused. Reading Angel's Blade book and the Death Company relic things are so much better than the Blood Angels shit (that's even including Shield of Baal relics) but I just checked and it said "Can only be taken by Death Company Strike Force or Lost Brotherhood Detachments" and if I go and check... The only units that can take relics are Death Company Chaplains and Techmarines, using that limitation.

Is this a mistake? Why the hell is there these melee weapons and armour and shit for Chaplains and Techmarines when they're not really designed for combat as well as Captains. Even then unless you do Death Company Chaplin (HQ) and Death Company Strike Force, you can only pick one relic anyway (iirc FAQ correct) and even if you could pick more, why would you put these expensive relics on a guy who'll get OHKO'd by plenty of weapons? You can only really go for that +1 to FnP weapon.

The armour is neat if you're running a DCSF and have a maxed out squad to give Crusader to, plus it'll keep you better protected from Pyskers and general weapons (though AP2 is errywhere!".

The Counter-Attack one is 10 points too expensive imo.

The Sword is good but is not only less useful on a Chaplain, but it also is unfluffy. Chaplains use Corziurs as they're the badge of office. Giving them a fuck hueg sword kinda defeats the point.

They used to do it quite a lot, actually. The start of the End Times in WHFB began with a Battle Report, where they kidnapped the Princess. Captain Tycho exists due to a Battle Report.

In Triumph and Treachery, the Empire managed to win the battle report and steal the Not!MayanCalender2012EndofWorldTablet. It ended with the Slann preparing to get it back.

It was pretty good way of doing, actually. Apart from when they did Storm of Chaos. That didn't work. Chaos lost every game.

Black Carapace is a neural interface that's grafted onto the spine. Its primary function is to read motor nerve impulses and allows power armour to perfectly match the movement of its wearer like it's nothing more than skintight spandex. The implantation process basically shreds the connecting nerves along the spine, which is fine because the Carapace retransmits those impulses faster than the nerves could.

And what would these big changes be, apart from being "big"...

More than often people that claims "oh shits going down", has no idea whats going to happen.
And to be fair to GW, the end times they actually told people what would happen, but the crowd wouldn't believe them. Only after release of AoS, people went like "oh fuck... they actually went through with it!" and then lost their fucking mind (burning old armies and such).

So back on topic. By BIG, do you mean "set to hit/wound roll values bound to weapons/models", or is it simply removing the AP effect, going back to old school -X based on strength/rules. Because even though the latter is quite a big difference and high impact on the game overall, it is not what I would call as BIG as the former.


It has already been confirmed by Forgeworld that the new setting for Epic will be scaled down models of their 30k series, and that it will start with legio titanicus. They will later on ad flyers and tanks, and finally infantry. If it sells well, they will also ad more than just space marines, such as astra militarum and even xeno races! All combined with a full new rules set, made by FW (which is a fucking blessing!). What has come out sounds neat as fuck, Titans working somewhat along the lines of Warmachine Jacks if you have any experience of that game, with hit locations, action points, and abilities to overload reactors and whatnot. They dont shy away that titans will have a major part of the new Epic game.

This is not my models, its a pro-painter over at some board for 30k. This is based on a cartoon picture that shows all legions in the same manner.

My guess is, based on what we see, a lot of weathering powders. some actual "real" scratching, and a whole lot of painted weathering (complete with shade and highlight). Ad to this some sponge effects to complete an overall weathered look (also with added highlights) and your on the right path.
