You don't get to keep left over points, so try to spend them all. Also winning combat is a bit more important than dealing damage, so parries from the diresword make it a better weapon imo. Overall eldar are a very strong army so there aren't many options that are bad. I would just try and squeeze in a weapon platform so long range armies can't choose where the engagements happen.

I'd lose some of the frags and make room for a second plasma gunner at the very least, also the sgt can wait to take the pistol as his rerolling 1s ability is pretty good and takes the place of shooting.

After trying it out yesterday, it seems that shotguns are pretty much worthless. If you can't guarantee you'll be right up in the enemy's face a shotgun is pretty weak.

>> No.52732752

Shotguns only major points over lasgun/autogun (never take shotguns if you can take bolters) is:
- it pins stuff better when they are in -2 cover since shells ignore cover. Also it might hit 2 guys if they are hugging each other.
- S4 shots when someone is totally up your face.
- With reddot and leader yelling orders, IG Veterans have 97.22% chance to hit and at least pin something if it doesnt have buddies if the guy is within 8" at the start of turn. If its long range then they have 77.77% chance.

I usually prefer the surety and range of lasguns but I have few veteran with shotguns mostly because giggles. Quite a few xenos have already gotten shotgun blasts to the face followed up by quick knifing next turn to finish them off.

>> No.52732756

Then your terrain needs more sidealleys or indoors environments.

So, question for everyone, if a Tyranid has 2 pairs of those swords, can he parry 4 times? The Tyranid player said yes, because GW keeps insisting that a pair of weapons only counts as a single weapon in CC.

I only ask because his leader was decked out like that, had gotten a headwound so he was frenzied, and then proceeded to 1v1 the Solitaire.

It was close, but the Solitaire kept getting screwed over by being parried 4 times. And the Tyranid player got lucky once, and shredded him.

You'll want an incinerator as early as possible if you know you're going to go up against a lot of harlequin players.

Hmm lets see. Boneswords state that if Warrior has pair of Boneswords, he can parry twice. So I'd say yes, he can parry 4 times.

Nnnnot actually. Neither ST, BS, or any other Tyranid Melee Weapon give the user an extra attack for wielding 2 weapons. Tyranids need to dedicate 4 arms to get the extra attack.

The reason why the bonesword is listed as a singilar weapon is because you can either get a pair of boneswords, or a Bonesword/Lashwhip

It can be pinned by high impact, overwatch high impact or high damage weapons. Overwatch is the only way to stop something like this, and with how many points it costs, there better be a mass of overwatch if it's anywhere near charge range.

That and the follow up shooting once it's done wiping out whatever one guy it charged. Even if you left a guy so close it consolidates into melee, shoot into the melee. That guy's dead anyway. Plasma, melta, krak grenades, or whatever equiv your faction has.

Disagree with laspistol + boltgun + frags on leader, give him like, one of those.

Same for veterans, ditch the laspistol. If you run out of grenades/lasgun, you can use the other.

What would be a good idea for a Steel Legion Kill Team?

I want to be fluffy as possible.

>> No.52734303

DESU even removing all of the laspistols and getting another guy wouldn't help much. The problem with hotshot lasguns is that they lack damage output and cost a lot of points.

The best thing you can do with a small elite force like that is to spam specialists. A plasma gun is 50 points more than a hotshot lasgun, but it's sustained fire, S7 and -3 Armour Mod. It shoots twice as many shots on average, wounds everything on a 2+ instead of roughly a 4+ and goes straight through their armour. Reason I say 50 points is including the 10 more points the specialist costs.

Carapace doesn't do much, it's okay I guess.

I'd recommend ditching the boltgun and taking a plasma pistol. Plasma pistols are 50 points, 18 inch range, S7, -3 save mod and can be used in melee. Either that or no weapon at all. I'd also ditch grenades on the leader as he should be doing orders if he's not firing his plasma pistol.

For any lasgun guys I found that hotshot lasguns are a waste of points, best to keep them as lasgun guys. What they can do is pin units. Anything T4 and/or with an armour save will survive it whether it's S4 or not.

If you have spare points, you can make lasgun guys useful by giving them the grenades. While the specialists shoot with their plasma melta sniper flamethrower weapons, the lasgun guys get to be the grenadiers. Frag grenades are good to ensure pinning, and can pin masses of guys. Krak grenades are for fighting tyranids or high armour/toughness units like Necrons.

I'm guessing however that you already have models lined up and want to use those! Just bear in mind that without a high impact weapon, which for guard is plasma, you have nothing to stop a charging tyranid or harlequin. If you have plasma in overwatch, you can stop a tyranid in its tracks and pin it as long as you hit it with the plasma weapon. That's the value of plasma and why I highly recommend it, even on your leader.

>> No.52734377

>without a high impact weapon, which for >guard is plasma

Toxic sniper tho?

>> No.52734388

>you have nothing to stop a charging tyranid or harlequin.
Well not spot exactly but let me introduce the basic guardsmans weapon to everything scary this galaxy can offer:

Krak Grenades.

I've avoided few charges just because guy was in overwatch and had krak grenades. S6 d6 wounds svmod-3 scares everything in this game outside of terminators and solitaire.

>> No.52734460

Scattershots is kinda the reason you get them in the first place imho

>> No.52734469

But if my Plasma is overwatching the window that the blender is hanging above, then they're not overwatching the gunbeasts. And then THEY turn my guard into pink sludge.

Even hotshots don't do jack against them, and he has enough range to just charge my heavy flamer, even if I'm keeping him behind my vets.

The one time I downed him, he got frenzy, and now he's even worse!

>> No.52734488

Yeah krak grenades do damage which actually kills it, but it's S6 so it's not high impact, so it won't pin if you get unlucky and only do one or two wounds.

Is it high impact? I like snipers it's just that as far as I can tell you won't pin or one shot tyranids with it.

>> No.52734556

I do. There fun, though the scouts sprews are a bit lacking compared to the rest of the SM range, which is the only real downside.
Considering the number of options stuff like tac marines have on their sprews, scouts as they sre now are just less fun to model, which I would say is an even bigger deal in this compared to regular 40k.

>> No.52734575

Krak grenades are... scary, yeah. But they absolutely HAVE to go on bs4 guys, because of unwieldy.

>> No.52734597

>or one shot tyranids with it.
You score a hit and it does the equivilent of an auto-wound. You roll a die to see what happens. 2+ it downs them. (Doesn't matter the amount of wounds the model has)

On a 6 it removes them from the board.

>> No.52734658

That's just patently untrue.

>> No.52734662

Yeah for sure, I wouldn't put something so valuable as a krak grenade on a new recruit. Remember grenade launcher krak grenades don't get -1 to hit.

Yeah there's a lot of situations that can happen but if they have gunbeasts, you're not going to beat it in a straight up firefight. Guard are weak against heavy weapons which outrange them, and have superior firepower. They can't tank hits, and in this game with so few models you can't really accept losses just to soak up fire for the chance to shoot it and probably not even kill one of their gunbeasts with one or two grenade launcher guys. All you can do against entrenched heavy weapons is sneak up close and hopefully get grenades in there. If the map isn't full of cover for you to sneak up with, you're screwed and you're going to have a hard time.

Guard is a short-mid range shooty army. Long range shooty armies will destroy them in a firefight, and melee guys will destroy them if they get into melee. To fight long range: Sneak up slowly and grenade/try to pin them when you get to short range. To fight melee: Overwatch with lasguns (or high impact) and try your best to intercept any charges and try your best to outmaneuver them.

Yeah it auto wounds, takes away 1 of their 3 wounds. They don't roll on the chart until they take their last wound.

So if the enemy deploys out of line of sight, you'd have to walk to see him.
Then he moves again, you can't see, can't shoot.

Remember that the entries for lashwhips and boneswords are two separate profiles. So if you outfit your warrior with a pair of scything talons, a lashwhip, and a bonesword, he gains the second additional attack for having 3 ccw.

So while being able to re roll all to wound rolls, and having 2 parries is nice, you can gain an extra attack while removing an attack from the defender, for cheaper.

I feel like mobility is going to be the best thing to have in this game. Speed 6, treating blocking as severe is pretty sweet. So far I've been using it to scale without ladders. It looks like it'll let me Kool-Aid man through walls too. Am I reading that right?

I've yet to play this, but would like opinions. My gaming group has played in the 40K universe since back in the rogue trader days. We've avoided 40K for the last 3-4 years as it seems to have become an unholy mess of zany rules and overpowered items.

By our readings of these rules, it seems like we are once again hitting the halcyon days of 2nd edition and Necromunda from the 90's. Is this accurate?

I'm happy to see the change to overwatch. We used to have so many games bog down into overwatch standoffs, it wasn't even funny.

Move 4. They can start hidden, which lets them have some time to prepare against warbands that rely on close combat.

I've only played 3 games so I can't comment very much on you're actual list, but as some one who lives on the Appalachian mountains, autoguns have just as much place in the stereotype as shotguns do, everyone out here as at least 4 guns: one semi-auto rifle, one shotgun generally pump action 12g, one full size bolt action rifle either .308 or .30-06, and a handgun to taste

Give your Alpha a galvanic, get rid of the carbines in favour of galvanics, and get rid of the plasma caliver for an Arquebus. Skitarii are a long ranged faction. If they end up close enough were a Plasma Caliver and the Carbines are useful then you've messed up rather badly.

Yeah, I'm not under any illusion that toxic snipers are op, but I do see some use for them. For example the insane range with a scope let you cover the whole board and if you can deploy close to a "street" or similar semiopen space your opponent will have to literally hug terrain from the get go to not be picked off. And if you use them to pick off 1 W units early you can force bottle checks. That's one of the uses of course. I'm sure there can be others. My point is the sniper rifle, with scope and camo gear, lets you shoot for quite a while before the enemy can which forces them to find alternate routes which you can block off with other units. But the sniper rifle is somewhat situational, as it should be. You find a spot for it, set it up on ow, and pretty much leave it there unless you're forced to move it.

A Troupe Master broke his leg with the slick ground effect, then the Harlies failed the rescue and he died.

A Vet failed his ammo roll, so I took the arms off a magnetized Tempestor and had him run at people with his headspike.

And after lasguns, krak grenades. Since Kraks are so bad in 40k my whole team, all 10 guys, are now sporting them either as grenades or 3 grenade launchers. Launchers especially put fear of Imperial artillery to enemy teams and in one game managed to first mow down 5 orks in a turn and next turn 4 more, including lucky krak into his nob.

My tactic is pretty much "first apply pinning, then apply kraks as much as needed".

I'm homebrewing some CSM rules for my group. We want each legion to have their own unique skill tree, and I decided with the cult legion they'd be locked into using 1 mark to be able to get 5-10pts off a unique item. Need help brewing something fair though.

Legion Skill Trees:

Night Lords: Ferocity,Combat,Stealth

Iron Warriors:Shooting, Guerilla, Ferocity

Alpha Legion: Shooting,Guerilla, Stealth

Black Legion: Same as PDF

Word Bearers: No idea. Suggestions?

Emperor's Children:Combat,Agility,Ferocity

Deathguard: Ferocity,Muscle,Shooting

World Eaters:Ferocity,Muscle,Combat

Thousand Sons: Taking suggestions. Same problem as Word Eaters, arcane knowledge and psyker esque skills don't translate well into skill trees.

Finally 2 new homebrew pieces of gear.

Chain-ax 30pts Mark of Khorne only, cannot be taken with a basic or special weapon. S4 +3 armor modifier, two handed(+1 strength when only used 2 handed).

Warp Dust: Mark of Slaneesh only. 20 pts. Roll a dice at the beginning of the game and consult the table
1: +1WS

This is between a small group of friends and I wanted us to be able to enjoy chaos stuff while keeping it BALANCED so any suggestions/advice/criticism welcome.

>> No.52743059


Yes, a big reason in fact. You can only play basic infantry and a couple special operatives. Even then, SWAG is missing a lot of infantry units (Thousand Son rubrics, Fire Warriors, Kabalite Warriors,etc) and you can't field bikes, battlesuits, transports, etc. If you want mini 40k skirmish, you go Heralds. If you want to derp around with some models and get people's feet wet, Kill Team. If you want to do a narrative driven campaign you do SWAG(or Heralds depending on how much you use their campaign rules).

The autocannon is really expensive. Not a bad idea to take it first and then use the guy as your sniper, but you can also fit 2 plasma gunners into a starting list and they can become dedicated snipers with the addition of a telescopic sight.

You really want to get into melee with Chaos Marines. You have access to both muscle and combat. I'd keep your guys with bolt pistols and try to get em to 2 swords so they can double parry. You can eventually upgrade 1 to a chainsword to eat armor.

I thought about it.Patterened it off the rules from Heralds and Traitor Legions. My main issue is how to have a downside if it cost 20 pts for a random upgrade. What if ever turn you have roll a dice and on a 1 you are automatically pinned and lose the effect because of coming down?

Maybe it should be optional. Take a second dose, if you roll bad you take a wound.

The new WD had an article about various paint schemes and assemblies of the kits. Don't get me wrong, the new kits are great, but you really do need multiples to get truly creative, there's just not enough support structures and bridges in the Armageddon box (not that you don't get good value for your buck, you're just gonna need to spend more if you want to cover a table)

I haven't lost a match in my league yet, and what I did was take:

Tyranid Alpha with Extended Carapace, Adrenal Glands, and 2x Scything Talons
Tyranid Gunbeast with Scything Talons and Spinefists
Tyranid Gunbeast with Scything Talons and Deathspitter
Tyranid New-Spawn with 2x Scything Talons

After my first win I spent a Cache to get 200 points and bought a Barbed Strangler for one of my Gunbeasts, Adrenal Glands for everyone that didn't have them, and Toxin Sacs for my melee guys. After my second win I picked up another New-Spawn with Scything Talons and Spinefists. Next win I intend to give my Alpha 2x Boneswords and then stop upgrading from there. I also have a Zoanthrope and a Ravener ready to come in as Spec Ops if I need them.

Seems to be a pretty good list. Won against Harlequins and Imperial Guard, and also played some for fun matches against more Guard and Tau and won those, too.

>> No.52743963

I'm OK with a downside, but I don't want the fighter to suffer a wound or forced to take an armor test. What's the point in paying 15-20 pts for a unique upgrade if it kills you? I think Pinning or suffering a flesh wound would be acceptable.

Roll a test every turn. On a 1 you are pinned and forced to take an additional roll(coming down). On a second 1 you suffer a flesh wound(bad trip)

Dudes, people have been playing Necromunda Gangs against SWA Kill Teams and been kicking ass. It's amazing what weapons on the open hive market can do to anything in 40K. Gangs also get two heavy weapons and cheap Juves.

There is no reason not to use gangs the same way as always. They work territories, buy equipment, and roll scenarios like everyone else.

If you consider all Promethium caches as Isotopic Fuel Rods you have a ready made currency that is extremely useful to gangs and sells on the open market for 25 creds.

2x snipers toxic rounds, red dot, telescopic sight
1x specialist plasma rifle, red dot carapace armor, chain sword
I went 3rd the ork went last. so when it became my turn my sniper 1 shot the ork leader. second sniper downed another.rest went on over watch.
shitty thing was the dark eldar player and the ork agreed right in front of me to team up on me.
