Given the 8" Teardrop was replaced by an 8" D6 Attacks, I bet the Hellhound will receive a 20" D6+3 or 2D6 attacks. The extra attacks representing the ability to get more models under a template that isn't connected to your unit.

It's called tactics son. Shoot them into cover, flush them back out.

We haven't even seen any of the BS modifiers yet beyond the fact that they exist. For all we know you only drop in chance to hit when units are outside your range, which would mean positioning matters even less since you can technically hit from further away.

Where is the source that says you get modifiers based on range and LoS?
Cover stacking doesn't matter with high rend. If you were in cover versus an Ap3 weapon at Sv4 you could still take a cover save. Now if you are in cover versus say a -3 Rend, it doesn't matter because your total save has been reduced to an unrollable value and you have no alternative ßave.
Removal of iniative and new charge mechanics just means that units meant to get stuck in will be just as reliant on getting stuck in as they were before. No change.

>> No.52917791

>>52917754
It depends on how much cover adds to the save. If it's say +2 then the -3 rend is mostly negated.

Christ, the people replying to you so far are retarded.

Yeah, basically weapons like that are unlikely to exist, or be a weird and mostly useless novelty like hotshot lasguns. They give all these different stats, but ultimately the only thing that actually makes sense is some weapons are more powerful than others and get better S, better AP and better D, so any sensible designer would just roll them into a single number and be done with it. But apparently 40k players like to over-complicate things so they have three different stats.

What I was getting at was what each of these things represent. For the most part, high S weapons represent high-caliber shots, or things capable of really hurting. In 7e, D is the primary way of dealing multiple wounds, and is in place of a standard strength value. I'm aware that they server different mechanic functions, but what I was asking was what each one individually meant in context.

>>52917635
I suppose I could see that? Those are going to be some super weird weapons, though. Like the S3 D 1d6 being some sort of crit weapon, where you rarely manage to hurt things with it, but when you do it wrecks?

I guess low-S, high-D would be like a high-velocity weapon which might hit something critical but might also get deflected and do very little, while high-S, low-D would be more like a big explosive shell which is guaranteed to shake you up, but isn't going to wreck you outright. On the other hand, it seems almost as if it would make sense the other way around too; high-velocity makes a small hole reliably, explosive rarely penetrates but totally fucks you up if it does.

Realistically, most weapons which are good at one will probably be good at the other too and have decent AP to boot and you will need all three to take out tough targets so nobody will bother with anything that doesn't offer that (except orks, who probably won't get a choice).

Why would we be T7 if the Dreadnaught at AV12/12/10 was converted to T7?

methinks it'll be T8 or T9, with a lot of wounds. That'll represent the tough armor and durability of the Russ. BUT! As anyone whose studied tank design will tell you, it also has tones of flaws and it has that rear armor issue. I suspect this could be represented with a reletively low armor save: 4+.

So you take shittons of punishment, but you don't get to avoid said punishment because the enemy can see your shot traps, exposed tracks, viewports, side doors, rivets, and rear armor and is aiming accordingly.

The idea is S/T is the measure of how likely something is to cause damage vs how likely something is to resist damage.

D is how catastrophic the damage is. Interestingly enough, the whole brunt of the damage is born by a single model who took the shot. That means that you fire a Lascannon into infantry and roll 6 wounds, you wasted 5 of them. Making Lascannons into clear anti-tank/monsterous creature weapons. This edition is shaking out some interesting hidden gems. This though also means a S3 damage D 1d6 weapon will not exist as s3 is clearly an anti infantry weapon, and all basic infantry have 1 wound. You would be wasting wounds firing such a thing at infantry, and at S3 even if it can wound a tank on a 6 a special weapon that low in strength with anti-tank levels of damage is silly as it cannot reliably harm a tank.

Now as to why there is unlikely to be a S10 D1 weapon is such a weapon with such a high strength would be pointless for anti infantry. It would be better suited for anti tank, but to be worth while for anti tank it needs to do a bunch of wounds. So let's figure S10 D3 being a much more reasonable number.

But that's my point, neutron lasers were effective against heavy targets and could still do decent damage to squads because you could reliably hit two or three models because of small blasts and imperatives giving you virtually no scatter.

Totally depends on the stats of trukks, boys and everything else, which we have very little idea of.

At a guess, trukks are going to be something like T 5, Sv 5+ and W 7 and things like scatter lasers and autocannon aren't going to be more than D 1 and AP -1 so their survivability will increase a little, which is good. I also suspect orks will be Move 5 and mega-armour (possibly even eavy armour) will make you slower, so transport will be essential.

From what I've seen of the rules, Guard will likely be pretty strong in 8th. Slow advancing tidal waves of men and guns that never tire.

>T7 at least, because T7=AV10.
Seems unlikely, since the dread is T7 and there's no fucking way the trukk is going to be that tough.

Old dread could take about six S 8 AP 3 krak missile hits before falling over. New one seems likely to take nine S 8, AP -2 D D3 ones. Old dread could take maybe five lascannon hits, new one can take about four. Old dread could handle maybe nine autocannon hits, new one (assuming S 7 AP -1 D 1) can take 32. So vehicle durability against big guns is generally similar while smaller stuff takes longer to kill them than before (but there's no lower bound now).

I expect a trukk will have to be possible to kill with one lascannon shot, so no more than 6 wounds (increasingly stupid stat name with all vehicles now using it too) and take a similar amount of autocannon shots to kill (currently about four to five hits, so they need to be getting wounded on a 2+ and having virtually no save). That points to something like T 5, W 5, Sv 5+... and it's still an improvement.

I'm also hopeful that they will have some ability to fight in close combat. If we're really lucky, ork vehicles will have ork attack stats representing the crew fighting from the vehicle. Being able to lock the trukk in close combat and not have it getting shot up while the boyz are busy seems like it will help a bit too.

So, marine flyers are generally about as tough as dreads, right? How many fucking supa-shoota hits would it take to kill a dread? I'm guessing they get AP -1 at best, so 5+ to wound, half the wounds saved and at least double the current HP in wounds to get through. So ork fliers, which already struggled to shoot down any other race's planes are now probably less than half as effective.

Essentially, it's changed so armor matters more. Rather than strict cutoffs, you'll get things that might have -1 AP, ignoring lighter armor while still having an effect on heaviest stuff.

Bolters not having any sort of AP is likely so they don't punch through power armor too easily. It'll still have about the same effect on guardsmen, just now they'll have a slight chance to live

Essentially, everything is getting a survivability boost. Vehicles have a shit-ton of wounds, marines get 2+ saves against bolters in cover, etc.

This is probably to make the first couple of turns of shooting less decisive; now getting first turn will be less important and games should last long enough for melee armies to close the distance. The emphasis on speeding up play is probably part of this too; each turn takes less time, so you can have more turns.

Terminators have 2 wounds now, so that's made them harder to kill.

Marines are probably only going to be getting 4+ saves against autocannons and the like, but will likely have 5+ against things that used to be AP 3, so that's a swings and roundabouts kind of situation.

Cover helps heavy armour guys more now, as it adds to your save. Terminators in cover will be able to handle pretty much anything short of anti-tank weapons and marines will be getting their 3+ saves back most of the time by ducking behind some scenery.

Flamethrowers aren't actually that great against cover in general. They were pretty brutal against bunkers, because the fluid could easily splash into firing slits and once inside an enclosed space was very deadly, but equally it would splash over very light foliage (which bullets would just rip through) and just burn that instead of the guys behind. It doesn't really spray around corners, but it does start fires which can spread... so while overall I'd say they do better against most cover than most weapons, it doesn't break my suspension of disbelief that they don't have a special rule for it.

I think it would be just as viable to say explosive blasts should ignore cover. Most of the time shockwaves can go around corners and walls and trees are just as likely to collapse on you as save you from fragments.

>> No.52920285

>>52918562
IRL, most ammunition (especially small and medium arms) that is armor-penetrating typically does lower "damage" to its target. AP ammo typically has a smaller ball sheathed in a jacket that enables it to punch through armor, enabling the smaller bullet to pass through and damage the soft parts underneath.

If you're not wearing any body armor, it's actually WAY better to be shot by AP ammo than normal or hollowpoint ammo, because it will usually just pass right through you rather than shatter/tumble inside your body and tear more shit up.

So tl;dr weapons like HSLG's which are S3 AP3 are actually pretty realistic, and raw damage and penetrating power are not directly related.

>Whats the point of feudal worlds?
Basically, very little. Some of them supply decent troops or some basic resources, but generally speaking they are worlds which just aren't developed enough to be useful. The Imperium doesn't throw resources into making them better because it has other things to take care of, so they pretty much just do nothing important.

>How do they emerge? Are they former colonies that lost their technology?

In short, yes. Some of them were blasted back to a primitive level due to war, others had their economies collapse due to shifting trade routes, suffered natural disasters, got cut off by warp storms, had all their scientists and engineers executed for technological heresy or simply lost the knowledge necessary to keep their technology going. A few of them have been that way since before the great crusade, others have fallen more recently. Sometimes they go all the way back to stone-age primitives and rebuild slowly from there, others retain quite a bit of high technology but lack vital elements of civilised society, so they might have laser weapons and cybernetics, but no telecommunications or motorised transport.

In some publications, the term 'feudal world' refers more to the culture than the technology level, so knight worlds, which are fairly high-tech, are considered feudal due to their social structure.

Actually, the weakness is the tension your average rivet undergoes. You see, Rivets work by heating up a bar of metal with a cap on one end until it expands. Then you punch it through a hole in the two pieces of steel you want riveted together, and smash the opposite end flat. As the metal cools, not only does the rod hold the steel in place, but it shrinks as most solids tend to do when they cool. As the rivet contracts, it pulls the steel together creating an airtight fit. This is why rivet-construction ships like the Titanic weren't constantly leaking.

Problem: If the Rivet is pushing the two steel plates together with enough force to make them airtight, then that means the plates are pushing BACK on the rivet with an equal force. So that rivet is under A LOT of pressure. The rapid heating and cooling also makes the steel the rivet was made of really, REALLY brittle. Like glass: Strong but inflexible.

So if you were to, say, deform one of the riveted steel plates with a giant hammer...or a cannon...the force bending plate out of shape would transfer to the already strained rivets. The rivets in turn snap in two. One side goes flying away from the tank, and the other goes flying INTO the tank, where it ricochets around like a grenade fragment and wounds the poor men inside. This is why every tank after the M3 Lee was cast-steel or welded steel Construction. Pic related is a mask WW1 tankers wore to keep popping rivets from striking their face.

So in short: Rivets are a weakness.

Okay, odd question, but I need some help tracking down a massive lore document on 40k.

It was super damn basic in design, but it covered a fuckton of 40k lore, things that aren't outright stated in the books, no pictures that I recall, I think it was just a straight text document even, or a word document, not even a pdf (but I could be wrong there). It spoke alot about what STC actually was, the fact that all hover-plates for things like space marine landspeeders are bascially from massive vaults on terra and will eventually run out, and other stuff like that (and how most STC tech is irreplacible because of lacking transcendent AI from the men of iron).

I was wondering if anybody knew about this lore document and if they had it? I have it... somewhere... burried, but I was an idiot and didn't rename the file from the number string 4chan puts on uploaded files when you download them. It might also have been lost in one of my recent computer failures so yeaaaaaah. Any help would be appreciated.

That's hardly a nerf. They were initiative 4 anyway, so they aren't exactly the speediest things. They aren't really going to lose in CC to anything much slower than them except Orks, but Orks are in such a spot right now that it's more of a buff to them than a nerf to you.

But they can still.

Then you shouldn't have any problem keeping your Wraiths away from the middle of the board with all your movement options, since you're so skilled and tactical

Try 4. Wraiths will probably end up with 6 to still be marine speed. Guard will probably end up with 5.

A d-scythe will, at minimum, hit 1-3 guys on the charge. For a 5 man squad, that's going to be 10 dead Orks.

If it's a max-sized squad of 30 Orks (which costs 180 points total, so more than your Wraithguard), then yeah, your dedicated shooting Elite unit will get mobbed to death. As they should, because you let them get charged by 30 Ork boyz. Or 20, because you managed to kill 10 of them on overwatch, assuming it's d3 hits instead of d6. Otherwise you kill 20, and would only take 1 wound on the charge, at which point the other 4 wraithguard mopping them up is viable even without counter-attack.

Psychic powers and especially summoning are also getting nerfed hard

It's possible overwatch is getting nerfed

New rules will make things like Riptides die easier to heavy weaponry that deals multiple Wounds and they will degrade in quality as they lose Wounds.

On top of that they've all but confirmed yearly balance updates and points tweaks to rein in things that get overpowered.

Why not? They've got twin-linked rending guns and can easily dance in and out even with 12" range. They're as durable as a space marine is, more in some ways thanks to Jink as an option. And of course, they're only 17 points, meaning they cost only 3 points more than marines in exchange for being faster and having shooting that's just as good at close ranges.

Dark Eldar are fundamentally flawed in the sense that they're "supposed" to do a lot of damage at the expense of armor, yet every other army essentially has a ton of firepower, simply due to how flimsy DE are, without the disadvantage.
