Shit I need something to make this thread live

uh, what change are you most hopeful for in 8th edition?

>> No.52682762

Dark Angels, Blood Angels or Tau? I'm a new player and can't decide. I would go for Tau because I like mechs and an army that is consistently good without needing to own a large variety of different units to suit the meta. However it looks like I'll need to shell out a mountain of cash. The "Start Collecting" set is only 250 points.

It looks pretty good.
Personally I might suggest that you take only one Riptide, and use the extra points for a stealth team, and some markerlight drones.
Replacing the riptides with a stealth team (or something else if you want) could be good, as a lot of people dislike playing against Riptide wings, and it may make the game more fun. Admittedly I wouldn't actually know, as I am rather small scale and don't have a Riptide yet, but you hear things.
And marker lights because they make hitting the target easier.
But if this is also plus the starter set, that looks to be big enough to justify a wing...

Don't run a riptide wing unless you are playing against a seriosuly.comoetitive opponent. 1 riptide per 1k points is totally acceptable but running the wing will just get people annoyed.

That being said, drop 2 riptide and replace with 2 squads of pathfinders and perhaps a devilfish or 2 for your warriors. This will give you some markerlight support because

Impressive, but I'm not sure I like the cartoonish proportions. I guess they are pretty close to the miniature version, but I feel anything real-world sized should be adjusted to have more realistic proportions. Especially if it's a costume prop.

Round 2 of my Ork Codex revisions. Last time I posted I mentioned I started this project before I was aware of Space 0din, and regardless, I did not feel his choices should have been so inexpensive with so much options. Anyway I have received comments about this already and want to see what you guys think a second time.

If you give sufficient reason why something should be different, I will be happy to change it, but for the most part, I believe this codex is ready for tabletop.

Thanks,

I wouldn't say flamers are standard, but they can work well. They offer something that other units don't.

Basically, crisis suits are super versatile, so use them to fill the gaps in your list. It looks like you might struggle against heavy vehicles, so fusion blasters might be a good choice.

I note that you don't seem to have any markerlights. You probably want some markerlights. Swap some gun drones for marker drones.

I see, thanks a lot. Before I dig into some more research, would you recommend me getting two "Start Collecting" boxes? From reading the contents listed I can get 20 fire warriors, some drones, 6 Crisis Battlesuits and 2 Ethereals for £85 by buying 2 "Start Collecting" boxes. Buying the same units separately would cost £146.50. Am I reading something wrong or is this just too good to be true? Finally, when the CAD detachment says "Required: 1 HQ....Optional: 1 HQ. Does that mean I can take 2 HQs in that detachment? If that is the case I will also get myself a Commander.

Ok. Crisis suits are your "fill-any-gap" unit. As in they can fill in on any role you need them to. If you lack anti-infantry (rare and bizzare situation with tau but for the sake of argument) you can kit them out for it with flamers, burst cannons or airburst. Same goes for anti tank fusion blasters, missile pods, or cyclic ion blasters and anti-heavy infantry plasma guns and/or fusion. They can fill in on mid-range fire support with missile pods and/or plasma rifles for an all around generalist or you can go balls deep on deep strikes with close quarter weapons.

Your typical loadout for the team is everyone with same weapon x2, don't mix shit together on same team. For support systems it's easy to go overboard with shield generators and shit which are good but add up to a lot of points witch could just allow you to take more suits instead. Advanced targeting system is cheap and good on multiple shot weapons like burst cannon or rapid fire range plasma rifles or twin-linked weapons. Target locks are nice on fusion blaster teams allowing you to engage multiple tanks at once if needed. Target lock is also insane choice for large crisis team with marker drones and commander as you suits can engage priority unit while drones paint another unit for others. Vectored retro-thursters are good on close quarter unit but you need drones alive to take advantage of that I4 for hit&run. Shield generator and stimulant injector can be considered on deep strike units to maybe allow them to live another turn. Velocity trackers should be given to broadsides or riptides instead of crisis suits but if you want anti-air crisis suits no-one is stopping you. Drone controller is ok if you go for lots of gun or marker drones on your teams, even better on commander with his bs5. Flamers can be a nice upgrade for cheap if you have unused hard points on your suits. It gives a great deterrance for enemy charges and on rare situations you can get some nice shots with it all for 5p.

Ah. And not sure, look at the point cost vs what you get from it, how useful it is with the rest of your army including your strategy for running them. If you think it would be more useful to have an entire unit of dudes than a ~200 point guy. One thing about Dark Angels, if you go full raven/deathwing then you're low on dudes, and that makes it easier to pick out units with your tough, special characters. If Jetbike McGee's unit gets targeted by markerlights (and having a unit limits his mobility since he's the only jetbike) then he's just as dead as that 40pt dark knight, but less dead than the 5 dark knights you could get for his price. Same thing with Belial or that 170pt interrogator chaplain. If you get hit with a sudden wave of grav fire or plasma fire or the IG just decides make you take 40 armor saves, those 2+ start to wear thin.

It's a really strong list against armies with similar prices, but larger armies or Tau/Eldar anything can cripple you faster than you can hurt anything. Especially if they can take cover saves against all your plasma or you get really screwed with Gets Hot.

Also lack of weapons is a bitch, not sure what to tell you on that, if he doesn't kill himself rapid firing plasma with no reroll then he's gonna fuck something up. At least there's that.

Ravenwing/Deathwing are one of those combinations that either wrecks or gets wrecked. While I like the fluff and their entire style, I just don't like the way it plays out. If you expand a bit you can get the last part of their trinity, basic bitch troops. Every one of them is stubborn and the battle demi-company in your detachment overwatches at their normal BS. That way, you have point holders that the enemy needs to watch out for, as well as your kill squads rolling around. All the deathwing are fearless, all the ravenwing are hard to kill and stubborn, you don't really need that many ICs.

Keep in mind taking the OSC is basically the worst kind of cheese combo'd with the extra fuck you of list tailoring against IG. Because it's basically you taking lower strength rapid fire weapons that let you rip upset all his light infantry AND his heavy armor, while still leveraging battle suits with 3+ armor, multiple wounds, AND a 2+ cover save.

why doesn't mork's cunnin' have any range? or is it in the appendix.

Also, the gorkanaut is strictly better than the morkanaut, since they have exactly the same options, but the gorkanaut can transport units, where the morkanaut has no access points. I'll assume that's a typo. Kustom job seems completely useless. In addition, why does the kustom mega-kannon lose blast, without gaining more shots? Seems like it would make them rather useless as more expensive kannons that have 1 less ap and gets hot, without the versatility of frag. That's enough complaining, what's good?

Well, I really like the change to cybork body, as well as the changes to gitfindas. While flash gitz might still be a little overcosted unless taken in the freebootas formation, I don't really know since I don't have any other codexes to compare them to . The squiggoths are great, and the looted wagon rules are fantastic. I'd like for them to be able to use the guns of other species though, possibly at a discount because of ork accuracy. Green tide is fucking hilarious and looks like a load of fun. all in all the formations are really nice, despite certain ones being a lot lot better than the others (snakebites & freebootas). The klans are incredible, and something the regular dex really lacks. However, the blood axes formation says that either boss zagstruk or boss snikrot must be taken, but the klan rules state no unique characters besides snikrot. Also, the mark of mork seems a little iffy, since ghazzy can't be taken and snikrot is best taken with a kommando squad. I'd give the battlewagon the ability to take a supa-kannon, as described in the forge world dread mob update, which would make the freebootas on par with the other crazy benefits of the klans, as they seems a little lackluster otherwise.

All in all, it's really good. Some of the warlord traits are a bit off, but otherwise it's excellent. I'm saving that.

AoS has female Stormcast. Even named female Stormcast with their own models. Stormcast physically resemble Space Marines (muscled humanoid demigods). The girl Stormcast are the female versions of that (muscled humanoid demigoddesses). So at least we have an inspiration to what female would/could have looked like.

Anyway, what's the big idea? Sigmar elevates heroic and warrior women to the ranks of the Stormcast to get revenge on the forces of Chaos and justice for their victims. Both men and women are equal in his eyes as long as they are worthy.

The Emperor on the other hand choose only men to be his chosen warriors. What's up with that? We know from Fabius that partial geneseed implantation in females produces specimens are that equally deadly if not more than male specimens. So what was the Emperor's thought process?

You can't make female space marines. That is the fluff reason. If you dislike that fictional universes have rules, or internal consistency I don't think fantasy/sci-fi is for you.
Additional reasoning:
The Emperor did not want there to be any chances of Space Marines breeding. He wishes to guide humanity to a psychic race, not replace them.

The Newmen are created by implanting humans with a lesser version of the geneseed. They can even breed with each other and produce more Newmen. All of them, men and girls have a form of geneseed. All of them are equally strong and capable of taking on a marine in small groups.

>You believe a space marine can break down the Emperors (and chaos gods' btw) genetic workings

Actually, did say that Marine sterility can be fixed via treatments or Chaus mutations. But that is not an issue since marines do not have the desire to breed at all. This goes to traitors and loyalists.

>Gland-hounds. The New Humanity, as designed by Fabius Bile. Stronger, faster, more aggressive than the brief sparks that sheltered in the shadow of the Imperium. The first generation had been born of partial gene-seed implantation. Those first few crude attempts had become more refined over time, as the master had devised his own, lesser form of gene-seed. One which was not so likely to kill its host out of hand.

-------------------

>The Gland-hounds were built to hunt Space Marines. Or, rather, their gene-seed. One on one, they were no match for their prey, but in a pack they could pull down even the most frenzied of Khorne’s chosen. Bile doted on them. He even gave them as gifts, sometimes, when the mood struck him. They were prized by those for whom limited stocks of gene-seed were still an active concern, such as the Iron Warriors.

I'm not going to wade into the Tau=Communism meme, but my take is that the Tau are at least partly eusocial in nature, in part from how they developed and in part to the Ethereals refining it. Ethereals are effectively the queens of Tau society, who control the other castes through a combination of pheromones (Tau become completely servile before Ethereals, beyond even their typical loyalty) and having the caste system hammered home into them throughout their life cycle. In a way, I think they were designed somewhat resembling The Clans from Battletech; genetically engineered into strict castes of society, with a typically better baseline of tech and skill, but humans outstrip them once training comes into account (40k humans can outlive Tau by decades if not centuries)

Command just societies do tend to develop class systems, but only unofficial ones. By law they are equal, but in reality the higher elchons of government are wielding far more power, with the top dog being invincible. The Tau are not this: what they are is actually quite clear!

The Tau are a Brave New World in space. Just look at the simularities:
> Tau have 4 classes and the ethereal leaders
Brave new world has 5 classes, with the first "A" class as leaders
>Tau may only breed within their own class and are subject to intense selective breeding to excel at particular jobs

And a Fireblade was keikaku'd into making his own trap by another Shadow Captain, not just outplayed or japed like Shadowsun vs. the Chapter Master, but completely stomped.

>Also Shadowsun and Farsight mastered the marine codex in a period of a single year while they could not even grasp the full teachings of their master Puretide.

They 'mastered' the tactics of a Space Marine Chapter that not only followed the Codex Astartes extremely fanatically, but also followed it wrong and completely forsook the adaptability aspects of the entire book.

Where do you plan to put your commander? I may consider giving him Drone Controller and sticking him with your Plasma Rifle suits, it'll really help those drones. I'm also unsure about bringing 6 ML drones with your double fusion suits. Double fusion suits are often taken as monats (singles) to suicide them via deepstrike on vehicles. The drones would rather be lighting things up from a distance, while FB wants to be in your opponent's face.

As mentioned by >>52687279, the advanced targeting on devilfishes isn't really needed. Additionally, do you expect your Riptide to get charged? Not sure if you need the Counterfire Defense System. You might be better served with an EWO or Velocity-tracker.

I think optimal strategy would be using the Drone Controller Commander with the plasma suits and 6 markerlights as your primary source of lights, then having your firewarrior teams chain off of those. And yes, you can get by just with markerlight drones. Another potential ML source in this list would be getting the Shas'ui for your FW teams, which can take a ML and Target Lock.

No, everything in the new fluff talks about their tactics being perfect and forged by geniuses, their commanders are described as intelligent, experienced, wise and excellent, their warriors are described as disciplined, skilled, intelligent, adaptable, their mass-produced Suitsoldiers outclass supersoldiers five times their senior in skill, power, speed, manouverability, combat underdtanding. Their pilots, who are no more than 40, are described as more experienced than everyone else's. Their ships, which are not as fast as Warp-travel Imperial ships, took 30 days to reach the planet where Imperials would've taken longer and broke a blockade of a fleet that by all rights was likely a hundred times their number.

Both times in which the Tau were better written, most people I am aware of who dislike modern Tau can agree that back in the earlier editions they were fine. What isn't fine is their current state, in which they're basically implied to be objectively better than anyone at virtually anything, while matching everyone else's specialities with their mass-produced and low-experience armies.

>And a Fireblade was keikaku'd into making his own trap by another Shadow Captain, not just outplayed or japed like Shadowsun vs. the Chapter Master, but completely stomped.

What does it have to do with intelligence? Even marines outsmart each other. Heck, even Orks do that and Ork as rocks. Its about capacity. The normal 20+ year old Tau can be as adept as a 100+ year old marine in warfare.

>They 'mastered' the tactics of a Space Marine Chapter that not only followed the Codex Astartes extremely fanatically, but also followed it wrong and completely forsook the adaptability aspects of the entire book. What they thought they mastered was the Codex Astartes, what they actually mastered was the tactics of a one-trick pony faction who refused to change anything regardless of the circumstances.

Wrong, Farsight took a Codex during the Damocles Crusade and cracked it creating the Mirrorcodex. Shadowsun would later study and master the Mirrorcodex in order to create her trap planet.

I'm not really bothered about that point, because it's conjecture, the pilot was obviously the main character and had a new AI, it didn't make any actual comparisons between it and the Necron AI, either.

>The Weather machine, you idiot. The Tau had a weather machine that wrecked the Imperials. It's a plotpoint in the book how did you miss it.

Didn't miss it at all. Also didn't miss the Tau beating the Imperials at every turn on the ground until they were finally forced into a defensive line (which is fair), or the fact that the Tau had air superiority in a scenario when they had absolutely no void-forces, or when a mass-produced Scout Drone detected an Imperial Assassin, or when single Stormsurge showed off shielding that was more powerful than a true Titan's as it 'shrugged off the fire of an entire Superheavy company'.

Try not to play against Tau when you're new, it'll skew your perception of what is and isn't broken. By the time you have a list that can beat a tau opponent, you'll be using your own form of cheese, and shitting on codexes that aren't in the top 3, ruining their fun.

It's insanely easy to be well above average with tau, and an experienced player can make a list that sounds beatable on paper, but you never actually had a chance against.

Also, tau players like to talk about their weaknesses, and give "tips" how to beat them, but it's mostly just bullshit as their weaknesses are all covered by special rules. In reality they are just trying to make you think you're playing wrong against a tactical genius, when they are actually just playing an easy-mode army with no real weaknesses.

1. You need Shas'ui to take marker drones for fw i think

3. 3 hrr with chances of sniping fools are nice, even nicer with the hunter contingent bonus where you can snipe fools with +1 BS and share markerlights.

Hindu extremists perhaps like the modern day bjp shiv sena or the whole ritual pollution by being in x metres of a lower caste
However many of those societies encouraged cross training - samurai had to master art forms like painting or poetry
In blades of Damocles it's shown that caste types are forbidden from any cross caste activity - a low level earth caste hides her artisitic hobby because if she was found out she would get mind scrubbed.
