Rolled 24 (1d26)

Malagra Agent Smith edition
First use of superglue subedition

The Caladius looked at too many old memes, Russ and Magnus had a metaphorical Bane moment and Custodes should stick to walking. Jetbikes can't drift-charge properly and anons made way better ones. Thallax remain unspooked in the face of Alpharius infiltrating into Lorgar despite their Secutarii leaving to play pirates with Magos Coatl. Possessed Terminators walked on the contradictory sands of Istvaan, Archmagi had inconclusive duels with Praetors and survived by body-hopping into the Fallout series. Secutors are beaten by Black Templar witchery, but survive to witness Magos Columbus set sail from the old bread to the new: >>52809536

I'm biased because I like all poleweapons...despite those with hooks being mostly used afoot to unhorse enemy knights.

Other guy doing bullock bikes here:

I said last thread that just straight up using Sammael's bike looks better than my frankenstein cobble of a ravenwing command bike and cast parts of Sammael (I didn't want to spend £30 per individual bike before budgeting for the riders, so that's what I'm stuck with.)

But I'm thinking that my just straight up using the guardian spear works better than either of your spear conversions so far. Is my model holding an extra Bolter he doesn't have in stats? Sure, but I think it's a fair enough compromise for asthetic reasons. Hell, after I've finished the prototype bike tonight, I'm thinking maybe using swords for the second unit. It's not like these guys can take more than one weapon option to confuse things.

Another issue is the helmet plume, it doesn't look like it's blowing in the wind at the kind of high speeds the bike goes at. I resolved that by getting a Saggitarum conversion kit, Which'll also solve my Custodes underslung bolt weapon issue.

Not really suggesting that you spend even more though, just giving my input.

Yes, he's kinda about to throw it. I wanted to make it javelin-like, since jousting poitions are fairly boring overall as far as model dynamics are concerned. Not much you can do with them beyond at ease or charging positions.

Fair enough about spear and sword, but I prefer keeping weapons distinct from those other units in my army actually wield. I'm weird that way. That said, pic related is a canon weapon for jetbike custodes. Maybe I should just suck it up and build that.
Or do a compromise and make a cavalry hatchet with that design instead of a polearm.

What's the alternative? Retarded xenos swaps that nobody's going to buy?

If 90% of the market is buying Japanese cars, and Japanese cars are by far the most popular, of course it's smart to make a billion little accessories and things like exhaust parts and race wings for Japanese cars. Why the fuck would you waste money putting out chrome nigger rims or fake muscle car hood pins? Nobody's going to buy it and it's fucking worthless. Meanwhile the other option will sell like mad and is useful to 90% of the consumerbase due to the shared target niche.

Before you solve the problem of "too many marine products" you need to solve the issue of "too many marine customers". And as the past few years have already shown, it's NOT because of them having "OP rules" which haven't existed for 99% of the game's lifespan, or "too much marine spotlight" as we've seen vast amounts of non-marine releases like GSC, Knights, Armageddon, AdMech, Ynnari, Militarum Tempestus.

While throwing power weapons are a thing due to miniature teleporters (rare, but if anyone has that it's custards), it still feels odd to see them. I'd replace that arm with a more traditional lance (if you can still take it off) or even another cavalry weapon like a sabres or such.

10 man Veteran Tactical Squad with 2 plasma guns and the rest with serpentas. Sergeant has power fist, artificer armor, and the dedicated transport is a rhino with a multi melta.

>Troops 600 points
3 Tactical Squads with vexillas. Sergeants have calabanite warblades, melta bombs, artificer armor. Dedicated transports are Rhinos with combi-meltas.

Vindicator Squadron all with laser destroyer arrays and two with machine spirit.

Leviathan Siege Dreadnought with volkites, phosphex, and a siege drill in a Dreadnought Drop Pod.

Malcador Assault Tank Squadron with two Malcadors. One has a twin-linked lascannon instead of the battle cannon. Both have demolisher siege cannons, lascannon sponsons, flare shields, armored ceramite, and havoc launchers.

>LoW 395

I use to run Mortis Boxnaughts but I'm really displeased to see how many people target them turn 1, I have two Contemptors-Mortis on hand to exchange them with but then got the Malcadors and cut them out. I might drop the Veterans for them instead. I liked the idea of the Malcadors survivabilty + fire power they put out at BS 5 and ran with it.

Something really terrible, I reckon. Given that the likely fate of humanity would be "become noms for demons as your collective psychic potential steadily grows" it could be a paradox god that simulateosly exists and does not; all-powerful and powerless; eternally raging at chaos and cruelty of its own existence and competely still and detached as a dead soul that's observing the world; or something else completely.

I know that it was a bit off the wall, so I'll try to describe my train of thought:
The whole reason why Eldar fell was birth of Slaanesh - it stand to reason then that the other three gods couldn't do jack shit to them while they were using warp very liberally, and only a global psycic catastrophe was enough to break through the protection.
With Emp's oversight and most of his energy free for something other than protecting humanity from Chaos, whatever his plans were they were likely to succeed.
So the only way for Chaos to succeed n that situation is to have humanity birth another god or do something equally warp-altering and destructive.

i like mine with a MMelta, just so they have an extra shot at killing something armoured if you get close, since you want to be in charge range anyway.
>rest with serpentas
Thats a lotta points, even with your bonuses to wound i find pistols arent exactly worth squat, and you cant even charge since rhino, not raider. I would give your dudes combis instead, and use them as a glue unit that hops out and murders something expensive, then cleans up weakened enemy squads.
looks fine. Maybe swap one to a volkite charger unit of support squad?
vindi's look good, not my favourite tank but still good. Consider another machine spirit, just in case it gets stunned
Leviathan is goodstuff, i like mine to have at least one gun, and with tank hunters you could pick between gravcannon and meltalance, gravcannon can actually have a chance at fragging things with tank hunters, and slaughters heavy infantry, while meltalance is three-shot lascannon even without melta. If you can, give it AC, else you could be fucked up by a stray rhino with a pintle gun and its your best CC unit.
Fuck yes. Theoretically, a unit of three with command tank would be insane, what with essentially universal tank/monster hunter, but thats still pretty good. I dunno about flare shields on them, its expensive, and deters enemy from even trying to shoot them. As they're already ded'ard and don't explode, the more firepower they absorb, the less your other, squishier tanks will take. This is all theory, i've never seen more than one on the table, please give feedback on their performance.
Fuck yes, ultimate goodstuff unit, can't go wrong.

The one glaring weakness i see is that you have zero anti-air, absolutely nothing. Even if you use your vindis as AA, thats an average of three hits, and with a 3+ jink you have statistical likeliness of damaging w/ one shot. Thats with your entire vindi squadron, which is therefore not killing tanks and/or heavy infantry

I talk shit about all BL at once.
Euphrati Keler or someone made him a prediction right before embarking on the Retribution fleet sent to destroy the traitors. She told him that either he could go and die an unremembered death or shy away from that mission but be bound to an eternity of war until his death.
So he used his First Captain privilege to ask Dorn he send someone else instead.
Thus, Yonnad died unremembered and without glory as his ship was destroyed in a warp accident on transit to the system, and Polux was hailed as the saviour of Phall.

>> No.52830725

Oh shit....

Perhaps I didn't write it correctly, but it's meant to convey that he doubted, and Dorn *being* Dorn went overboard on the punishment. He fucking disowned him, man. The Chaplains obscuring his IF colours (black denotes service to the Throne over your own legion, but still) were the final nail on the coffin.
I mean, it's not like he took the wrong choice. Choosing to die would mean shying away from combat, and dereliction of duty is a crime so vile even Primarchs themselves can be censured for it, like when Perturabo accused Corax of it and it caused great unrest.
After all, dying for a cause is easier than living and fighting for it, even more so if the prediction says you pretty much die in the equivalent of a car crash.

I'd assume Corax, as the other pale and dark-haired primarch, but Corax usually has long hair (though admittedly it'd be even harder to tell them apart if he did, seeing as the usual thing of Curze's being the messy one wouldn't apply)

Also, seeing Dorn with dark-tanned skin reminds me - he does come from an ice world - he's not eskimo in the way that Khan is mongolian or Guilliman is roman, but it would make some sense for him to have slightly darker skin.

Speaking of G-Money, Dorn had a planetary empire as well, but no-one remembers that.

Hmm, I can understand why Curze would be where he is - Dorn and him didn't get on (... is there anything with Fulgrim and Dorn? They got on okay, at least well enough that Dorn was the one Fulgrim blabbed to, and they were both pretty noble and had distinctions from Big E... I don't want to search it though), but I don't see any particular reason for Corax to be on the bottom there - though I he was a bitch, so it makes some sense.

Each left bolter arm is directly opposite its corresponding right arm on the sprue, if you're looking at it so the arms are in two columns.

If you insist on cutting all the parts off the sprue at once, put each arm pair type in a separate pile.

>> No.52832587

I do remember his title before becoming the Emperor's Wallnigger was Emperor himself. But he was really not that different to Perturabo, even growing more like him at Sebastus.
His character made him clash with Curze, yeah, but also with based Ferrus, and after the heresy he wouldn't even listen to Roboute.
When first reunited with his legion, he told them absolutely NOTHING even as they were kneeling before him. He just left, and only after the first battle he said the legion had much to learn.
Most perplexing of all, to the previous Legion Master, Mathias, he literally gave a SINGLE "thanks" and sent him to Inwit to raise 30 regiments.
>he's not eskimo in the way that Khan is mongolian or Guilliman is roman, but it would make some sense for him to have slightly darker skin.
People from zones with little solar radiation have lighter skin, but turns out eskimos kept their original skin colour due to eating lots of fish (thus not requiring sun for vitamin D-strenght), instead of needing to lose melanin to suplement D production with solar radiation.
Inwit has both a red sun that keeps it in twilight and sunken, almost lifeless seas...but it's fiction so who cares.

Well, +1S is essentially less than a 16% increase in wounds (since sometimes you'll be still wounding on 6s anyway) so basically the answer is yes, since the ID is a tad unreliable compared to smashing the enemy in the face with a power fist, even against Archmagi who aren't IDd you'll need 18 hits to take one down.

I've only just finished off the first 5 I started over a month ago while eating waffles. Though I've also been assembling another 5 and have a Galatus that only needs one more leg (I'm stuck on that cause I'm trying to figure out how exactly I'm going to model the Mk. 3 suit he's stomping on).

I think those ork chainblades that are vaguely triangular would be the perfect thing to stick to the claws, for the effect you're looking for.

Meant more the community in general. Night Lords, Thousand Sons, Death Guard, and Word Bearers seem to attract way more attention. I don't get it. Perturabo seems to me to be similar to Darth Vader character wise, and that guy gets much love.

That's because Star Wars is overrated as fuck, but nobody dares to disagree that it is the best thing ever due to its cult-like followers.

>Night Lords
Now I don't have anything against NL, but how can anybody like them ? They're just like those fail bullies : acting all tough against those already severely weaker than themselves, but run away crying the instant somebody as strong as them shows up and stands up to them.

Only on /tg/ will you find people having a neutral conversation about a lewd picture.
To answer your question, this is Corax/Dorn/Curze, in that order with Corax on the bottom. Also;
>is there anything with Fulgrim and Dorn?
Sadly no.

So ever since I've finished converting and painting an Alpharius to lead muh dudes, my average dicerolls have improved so much it is scary, despite having only actually fielding Alpharius twice.
Before, most games were uphill battles, with few hard-earned victories and many, many defeats. As a result my armylists started having as many redundancies and backups as possible, because so often even a full squad of missile launchers would fail to even scratch a Rhino. Every game that didn't end in getting massacred felt like a succes.
But now, games have started to feel almost too easy. Only lost about 3 games in the last 2-3 months, and even massacred the opponent's army a decent number of times.

Including last game, which was 4000 points vs Salamanders with a primarch on each side. First turn every penetrating hit but one that got through resulted in a Explodes! result. Two landraider, a plasma dorito, and a plasmagun support squad were all gone. In return, my Alpha Legion only lost a Venator and two marines.
Turn two my Saboteur showed up (yes, you should know him by now) picked the fully upgraded spartan with Vulkan and Firedrakes inside it as his target ... and blew it up. Again. Because my opponent was already considering giving up after turn one, I didn't mention Dynat and let it count as an immobilized instead. But even with that the game was pretty much the same as Istvann V before the start of turn 4, at which point we stopped the game because nobody was enjoying it anymore. Having been in my opponent's position so many times I couldn't help but feel bad for him.

In that battle I was testing my freshly painted Graviton Cannon rapiers, and was suprised with how well they do. The point value for three of those is as high as a landraider, which they can't even wreck in one turn. But being Artillery means they're not dieing fast, and large blasts with haywire makes them extremely reliant at removing 3 hullpoints every single turn.

Q-quit sexualising best primarch.

Yeah, I get that sometimes, too. I started off my Mechanicum along the lines of what I see in battle reports, with Archmagos Dominus leading pretty much nothing but Thallax, Castellax and a Thanatar. I got smashed almost every game, but then picked up some tarpits, Gravidons and Ordo Reductor Medusae and suddenly started turning all the Spartan Deathstars and Leviathan Dreads I was up against to metal splinters.

Felt good for a while, but I've found a medium at the moment because I was being a dick. Basilisks not Medusae, buy ALL the toys for the Archmagos Archimandrite (355 points of FUN) and don't buy the Adsec carapace so they can be FoTLd off the board, and my power units are some Droplites and a Macrocarid Grav squad, again with ALL the upgrades.

Helps that the people I want a fair game against are Death Guard who don't much care about Haywire taking down one Dread tops, Iron Hands who have enough to take it and TS and EC who bring their A games themselves, which has once resulted in a game decided by two Tactical Marines fistfighting a Thallax for the tabling after his command squad sucked themselves into the warp exploding my Macrocarid.
The dickhead UM player who spams Leviathans and Suzerains every game and the Custodes guys with a billion tanks get the old me, often backed up by DGbro and/or ECbro. Watching an I6 Praetor slash down three Hetaerons with lucky Paragon rolls remains sweet as hell, I may start an EC army if I ever want a Legion.
