Rolled 5 (1d26)

Breadanon still gone edition
Custom armies still superior subedition

The XVI took a turn at being Death Guard in their Terran Mastodon, the Ordo Reductor gather fleets to help after the Genetors called for help with some strangely camouflaged White Scars. Rowboat took a turn at being the biggest social misfit as the Khan and Morty are away feuding. Custodes chased some of the Emperor's lost eagles and succeeded because Daemons can't hold ground. The chemistry of Ceramite was discussed as the last Transporters were decommissioned for new giant boltguns. All this and more in the previous thread >>52670606

Then hammer the bastard with artillery, try to get some levies into close combat to hold him down for a turn and aim the Myrmidons at him.

Nah, it's just I prefer that brand of cheap fearless chaff to Adsecularis when my Ordo Reductor want scoring meatshields. I get more numbers, the Disposabe rule and some decent offensive output, but can't join the units and are less durable and flexible due to being 2x50 rather than 3 or 4x20. Mayber I'll throw in a couple Russes or something at some point, but I'm basically forced to only take Levies and vehicles because of Cult Horde and Tainted Flesh. Snapfiring artillery isn't much use to me.
They're fluffed as flash-cloned insane fodder with some modifications inspired by Xenos beasts they've exterminated, since that was a significant part of the Reductor and Genetor's role in the Great Crusade. Stage one for Genetor invasion plans is dropping thousands of those into enemy territory combined with an orbital bombardment, then landing troops in the confusion who have cloning vats that let them make a whole bunch more from harvesting the countryside.
They use pic related as models, with a few nid parts here and there.

I'd give the praetor a scythe to let him really go to town. If there's a situation where you have to go for mutual powerfist instant death you might as well let a member of the command squad do that, so the praetor doesn't really need a S8 weapon.

Similarly, scythes on tac sergeants are amazing, especially as you've given the sqauds chainswords so I'm assumed they're expected them to see close combat. DG sarges with scythes will beat any legion sergeant apart from WS.

I'm not sure it's so bad. Haeterons, Achilluses, and Sagittarums are alright but they aren't the units that make Custodes scary. This army's small enough in model count that it'll be a race between the opponent whittling it down in shooting and the Custodes killing them in CC.

Valdor is a bit cheap for what he does, but it's taking multiple shield captains/tribunes with the shield and cyberfamiliar (i.e. rerollable 3++) that people get salty about.

>> No.52690963

I finally have some free time, so I started building my long dreamed-off custodes. A couple of questions, if I may:
- How important are Vexilas? I dislike their look on small units, plus the change for the bearer looks like it'd impact the team heavily.
- Infantry and Walkers only; retarded or somewhat viable? While their vehicles look slick, the streamlined, elegant design doesn't match the custodes' design at all, so I'd rather avoid them and the jetbikes.
- When it comes to the shield-captain, I kinda want to represent digital weapons and cyber-familiar on the model, but going for the generic cyber-skull is boring. Eagles would be an option, but all bird of prays from GWs line are either stationary (and thus won't work for a running tribune) or are absolutly huge, like the aetherwings. Any advice?

'Alright' is not the term I'd use for Sagittarum, to be honest. 'Overcosted', sure. 'Pointless', no doubt. Even 'garbage' would be fitting.

The hawk from the Deathwatch White Scars biker dude isn't that big. I'd also consider the eagle sitting on Coteaz's shoulder. They don't capture the "cyber" part, but you'll figure something out. Also consider something a little less common, like a lizard from the Fantasy range (no idea if there are any) or Yvraine's cat thing. Green stuff a metal plate like Tycho's for its face.

Custodes without vehicles are fine as long as you get the teleport transponders. Not sure you need vexillas, either.

The official one has a power lance, I've decided to just give one squad of three guardian spears and the other sentinel warblades for visual variety.

By the way if anyone has suggestions for the nose of the bike I'd be thrilled to hear them. My initial plan is to Oyumaru and green stuff cast Sammael's bike's nose to get the eagle on it, but I'm aware that whether that works or not depends on how good my cast is, so I'd be glad to have a backup plan.

You need to use several coats, otherwise it gets spotty and you can see the brushstrokes. The worst bit is when you do the OTHER colours, since any mistake is much more difficult to cover up.

I just tried this method:
but it turned out terrible. Does anyone know if the "Cassandra Yellow" shade he uses even exists? GW has a Casandora Yellow, but using it like he did here just ends up as orange. Is the yellow shade he used out of print, or something?

>> No.52692081

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJ9w9J7gfJI but with yellow instead of white.

More seriously, you have to choose between layering increasingly lighter colors over a dark base, or starting with white and basically shading your way towards yellow. The latter is less work. It's done less often for IF because the final effect is a little light for a gritty space marine army, but it's where I'd start.

First, paint a Death Guard marine. In other words, use a bone-colored spray, shade with Agrax Earthshade cut with Lahmian Medium (or any other clear matte base), and highlight with white. Don't have to do do the black parts now, but I would. Easier to touch up the edges around the black/metallic parts now than after doing the yellow.

Then slather with a yellow glaze (Lamenter Yellow is GW's). Redo the highlights. Yellow glaze again. You might want another final highlight but at this point you're probably ready to move on to the other colors (the blacks and metallics). The advantage to doing the black earlier is that you don't have to be as precise when you fix them this second time around.

People 100% overuse Cassandora, it's meant to be a recess shade, not the "oh I'll cover the whole thing" method people usually do. Though I like mixing it with a little Agra for a good darkening feel.

Corax White is actually pretty great in my experience, just make sure to shake well and have a humidity <40%.

The GW standard stuff looks great, and the reggo averland/yriel/shade/edge flash glitz/very edge white scar has put in good work.

Exactly that. I've hit the point where it's pretty easy to fix, but when I can't a little chipping work does fine.

Top-Tip is that the larger, flat areas of non-yellow are much easier to paint first. I dunno why I just do better then, plus the tiny splotches over get covered up.

Detail is just pray you don't fuck up, but once you get the feel of it it's easy as can be.

>> No.52692313

Actually base paints make touch-ups easier than they used to be. Yriel yellow, then your main shade of yellow is usually enough. You could of course do all the black and silver first while the rest of the mini is bone or white.

Depends on what the list is tailoring for. If an AL list has Dynat, it will also probably have a Saboteur for that delicious chance at a Penetrating hit causing an explosion on your prize tank (see: Saboteur Anon's Salamander tank killing spree), and the AL player will try to rapidly close the distance to your edge of the table before key units leave their deployment zone. Infiltrate and MTC are the choice Mutable Tactics traits to achieve this strategy. t. AL player.

This is, of course, only the most generic strategy of any AL worth their salt. I have my own list build and strategy that hard counters several lists while still remaining flexible, even unpredictable, but I'll never tell what that is. :^]

I can chime in for IF since they're my legion!

We're good at shooting bolters, so take advantage of that and run squads of Tacticals (or Vet. Tacticals under PotL). My go-to is three squads of 20 Tacticals with attached Apothecaries. Get in some cover near an objective and we're unlikely to break, unlikely to die, and can murder anything that advances into us with Fury of the Legion.

I take advantage of deep-striking Terminators by giving them a 'Termicide' loadout: Plasma-blaster and 4 combi-plasma per 5 Terminators, throw a couple power fists and a single chain-fist into the mix. These guys are your troubleshooters. Drop them on pesky squads or vehicles as needed and murder away. Depending on the point level I'll run 2 squads of 5 or 1 squad of 10. (Elites slots are usually very crowded for me.) They're good all-rounders but I usually use them to decimate enemy heavy infantry.

For dedicated anti-tank I run Laser Destroyer Rapiers and drop-pod in a Cyclonic / Siege-Wrecker Leviathan. If you need to deal with Spartans and Primarchs I highly suggest a Medusa battery.

I am also seeking IF help. I'm limited somewhat by the models I have, but I will be able to expand a bit in places.

My current plan is to run three 15-man Tactical Squads and a pair of 10-man Veteran Squads, but I'm not sure if I should give the the tacticals the extra ccw or how to kit their sergeants, nor am I sure how to run the vets. I'm thinking sniper vets with 1 heavy bolter and 1 missile launcher, but again I don't know about the squad leader.

And I'm at a total loss about HQs, though I know I won't be using named characters.

Because despite being insane he was stupidly effective at the one thing the Emperor wanted of him, genocide on a planetary scale.

Its like the Emperor was told that Angron had an expiration date, had a need to kill and was really good at killing, those are all bonus to the Emperor's plans!

The thing is it seems clear the SoH never had a Librarius to begin with and the few others that didn't (EC, DG) still had psykers who got inadvertently brought into the legion.

Kitbashing armor patterns is fine, MkIII torsos generally need to go on MKIII legs as they are too chunky for anything else.

Technically everything you have will then be in MkV.

Try to use the same Mk shoulder pads on each shoulder whatever you do.

Never. EVER. EVER. Use MkVII. Do NOT use your kitbashing as an excuse to just put some plastic MkIII helmets from ebay onto your tactical box bodies. it's a fucking insult to 30k.

I know i'm being harsh and lame. But reality check. If you wanted an army from GW, all you have to do is mark that up by like 30%, and you can have it from forgeworld. So if you were going to save for a year to buy an army, save for a year and a couple of months. It's that easy.

I hear that all the time and I can't help but feel people are kinda self-deluding themselves.

The whole point of MkIV is sleek, contained, sophisticated, standardized, powered plate. It's supposed to be skinny and defined compared to it's predecessors.

Plastic MkIV just looks like GW tactical marines when all in the same armor and same pose (As they are pretty much mono-posed). I don't see the point in getting them. The helmets are fine, and so are the torsos. But arms and legs and shoulders are so chubby and poorly defined, and posed exactly like tactical marines.

It's legitimately not a price point issue for me. I'll happily concede that the resin MK.III is much better than plastic. I think the resin Maximus looks too "soft for lack of a better word.

Why play 30k then?

Why even start a 30k army?

Why not just buy the rulebooks and play your army normally as a 40k army 99% of the time and when you do play from the rulebooks, you can only play a siege of terra scenario / opposing army which your respective chapter fought. So if fluff comes out saying how the white scars were nowhere near Iron warriors, that can't be played. If the Emperors Children did their thing and ransacked the planet and didn't siege the walls, those two can't play.

It just defeats the purpose. Why buy a love chair when you want a sofa? Why buy a laptop when you want a pc? Why buy cigarettes when you want a cigar? Why buy, as a collector, the wrong, but very similar, historical gun when you want one used in x war?

I don't want to start a armor argument, but seeing extensive MkVIII in a 30k army feels a bit insulting to me. It's like going to university because of how hard you studied and the person next to you in the lecture is dumb, loud, annoying, doesn't really know anything, but is there because of a policy which he exploited.

So I am part of a Warhammer community in west London, and a core group of which is heavily into 30k. (Everyone has lovely Armies). A lot of us are really into the fluff too, most of us having large book collections.

In, I think Betrayer, ADB has a character which is the mortal captain of the Conqueror (Flagship of the World Eaters).

I had a conversation in our flgs in which I said how funny I thought it was that the most bloodthirsty and brutal legion had a small loli as captain of their ship capable of firing hundred meter long harpoons, having gained the position through family heretage of the position by way of being the first in line of a prominent family from the shipyards at Saturn which built most of the Gloriana class ships.
>Loli? One of my friends asks
>She was 13 when she is Shipmaster right?

We investigate, and I had misread her age as 13 when it's 31.

He wrote Baneblade and Shadowsword, which I thought were quite good. He wrote Pharos too, which had pretty lousy Night Lords. I like his writing style, at least.

Here's the problem: Mk VII armor developed for production on Terra while Mars was in traitor hands, so the first legions to get it were the Imperial Fists, Blood Angels, and White Scars. The Dark Angels would only have received any after arriving late to the Siege of Terra - after Horus's death.

So you could justify the presence of Mk VII armor among the Dark Angels aligned with the Lion at the Battle of Caliban, but you miss out on everything prior. And as far as I can tell, the Calibanites were more likely to be festooned with robes.

But the robes do take away a portion of my objections; if you want robes you pretty much have to use 40k heads. Just convince us that robes make sense for Heresy-era Dark Angels.
