I think I'm gonna pick up Iron Hands, with vehicles getting more use I can see a lot of functionality from them since they shit out techmarines and nothing ever wants to die.

It's like playing nurgle marines but instead of being slow as fuck they fix all their metal boxes. If their bonuses are close enough in 8th edition then an IH techmarine in a land raider would be fucking horrifying.

AoS forces you to allocate a wound to a model until the model is dead. Still, seems a bit silly to let a player just allocate all wounds to the guy with a storm shield sitting at the back of a unit.

We have no idea, but with the changes to summoning and with Daemons of Tzeentch likely changing to resemble their AoS equivalents they should be a lot less viable.
As for the Thousand Sons themselves, the changes to cover, AP and the psychic phase should all serve to make them a lot more powerful.

Question regarding this Fracture of Biel-Tan horseshit.

So I'm kinda new to this whole "advancing the storyline" thing but basically I have both Eldar and Dark Eldar armies and enjoy them very much. Made all kinds of cool characters and stories for them, especially the Dark Eldar, but I have a cool Biel-Tan Autarch who commands his own armored division. He's like an old 19th century general, very fun to play with, hell bent on Eldar manifest destiny. When I'm playing with him I'll do things like ask if my opponent would like to "discuss terms" after blowing up a Leman Russ with my Fire Prism for instance, lotta flavor. I'm also a big fan of running Lelith Hesparex.

I tried reading the book but I got kinda bored so I read a summery instead. Holy balls, whoever wrote that plot musta been on like, a 400mg dose of Drano or something. So much in it doesn't make sense, and I legit hate the concept of the Ynnari. Everyone's all huggy muggy much with the Imperium, everyone's taking everything so damn seriously, that shit with the Rubric Marines, Biel-Tan is in pieces, apparently Haemonculi can be killed now, like damn. It's like some Dragonball Z kinda deus ex machina and shit.

So what I'm getting at is like...so... what do I do with my army now? Like obviously I can still play it, GW didn't come into my house and light my models on fire. But I liked making my own stories around the fluff and such with my friends. I have so many named sergeants and things, I have like, stories and shit I wrote about their exploits. Yeah it's retarded nerd shit but still like, that's my army yo, I'm a little particular about it. And now it doesn't fit in the lore anymore.

I mean the answer is the same as any 40k fluff I guess I could ignore it but what really worries me is like, what happens when 8th rolls around and Lelith and Biel-Tan are all Ynnari exclusive models/factions or some shit? This pisses me off.

He would return home from a long and glorious campaign to find his Craftworld shattered and overrun with religious zealots. After days of deliberation and discussion of the events with the remaining Autarchs of Biel-Tan he would, without firing a shot, surrender his ship, his sword, his tanks, relieve his men, and even bid his beloved Howling Banshee escorts into the command of the Ynnari Swordwind, asking only a single vessel in return.

Broken in spirit he would make his way alone to Commorragh and live as a hedonist, dining with arena performers and regaling drunken tales of valor on the battlefield, occasionally called away to fight in the arenas himself, the last true Autarch of Biel-Tan being nothing but a sideshow amusement for the slavering throngs, wishing each time one of his opponents would give him the soldier's death he was denied in his service.

He got hit by an activated Rune Axe crafted to slay the Chaos Gods. The fact that he lived after the blow shows how powerful he is. Prior to its activation, while the Rune Axe had anti-Chaos properties, it couldn't harm Be'lakor. Like all magical weapons and mundane weapons, they just phase through provided that he sees them.

Which utterly debunks that the daemon in that old battle report is Be'lakor since the rocks should have phased through Be'lakor's body.

>completely irrelevant in 40k

1) his information led to Ahriman going through with the second Rubric that restored Magnus to his full self and power
2) He is instrumental in Abaddon's rise as Warmaster of Chaos and Chaos Ascendant

This makes him responsible for Wrath of Magnus and Fall of Cadia.

Also his shenanigans unwittingly helped the Imperials by causing the Phalanx to appear over Cadia to defend it against the Blackstone Fortress.

Moved onto Mordheim and Necromunda for a while and played sneaky sneaky Skaven and Delaque who I always did pretty well with and thought would translate to 40k with my new Dark Eldar army... I couldn't have been more wrong. I don't think I won a single game with them and I was already getting bored of the 3edgy5me lore. So obviously the next stop was DA......ahem played Deathwing for a while and they were fun and challenging and gave me satisfying wins.

And then I stopped playing

I decided on Daemonhunters back in 5th edition because of how, for me, it embodied the all of the best parts of 40k. You had the Inquisition, Imperial Assassins, Stormtroopers, and Grey Knights all in one book. And these were pre-Matt Ward Grey Knights, mind you. Their whole identity was being the white knight that the king (inquisitor) sends to slay the dragon (daemon), they were, at the time, one of the hardest armies to play in 40k because not only did they have almost no unit diversity (without relying on the Inquisition) but they really epitomized the elite unit style of play where you every detail could decide the game, the whole thing just felt right.

And then Matt Ward fucked it all up.

So I realized something. Hey! Ward ruined the theme by giving them baby carriers, and now half my LGS is going to play Baby Carrier Knights, and there I was just imagining game after game of me playing an army with baby carriers in it against other people who are probably playing an Imperial army anyway, if not Grey Knights specifically. So then I thought to myself "I never want to have to worry about fighting against a faction that's supposed to be my ally" and then I realized that one of my concerns from before Matt Ward was that I would have to keep crossing my fingers that a Chaos Daemons player would finally appear for me to be best friends with, but even then that wouldn't be very sportsmanly seeing as how my army is not just designed to be played against Chaos Daemons armies, it's actually designed to *beat* Chaos Daemons armies. Who would actually want that? No wonder there are no Daemon players around here. I should play Chaos Daemons. It'll give me an opportunity to show people how much of a good sport I am.

So I settled on this for my 500pt army, it's meant to be fun and effective so bare with me. I chose the command squad because they have +1 attack compared to the assault squad, I took an apothecary for the FNP, the 10man tac is going to split with sarge and plas going as one in front (along with the other 5 man tac) and las holding up behind them.

pt. 2

So I invested in Chaos Daemons. I bought some metal nurgling blisters, some metal plaguebearers, some pink horrors (both plastic and metal--this was back when LGS's had yet to sell off the last of their 3rd edition Pink Horrors) and then some Daemonettes and a Keeper of Secrets as an HQ. Plenty of diversity, powerful units, I can learn how to paint on the Nurgle minis and then once I've developed some skill really go the Slaanesh minis justice.

I was so enthusiastic about how well everything was coming along, I started with the Nurglings, moved onto the Plaguebearers, and then painted the Pink Horrors, a Keeper of Secrets, and was trying my hand at painting Daemonettes, but that's when I realized they were actually REALLY hard to paint right. Trying to get them to look anything like what I saw on the box felt next to impossible, my Keeper of Secrets was flawed when it came to the skin but ultimately had enough detail on it to make the overall picture look good but these daemonettes are just impossible for me to get anything right past a flat color...

Then 6th Edition and the new Chaos Daemons codex hit.

Most of what I had established had been outdated by newer miniatures. Sure, I could still use the ones I had... but I can't buy any more of those miniatures. All I have access to now are the plastics. And the two different types really don't jive together. I also noticed that the new book actually made mono-god lists viable.

So at that point I decided to start a mono-god army. My favorite god is Slaanesh. I have a Keeper of Secrets all painted up.

...But everything else in the army seems to involve those daemonettes...

...Second favorite's Nurgle. I've gotten a lot of practice in. And I do love Nurglings. Also possibly the best army to do conversions with next to orks... Yes... Nurgle it shall be!

pt. 3 (final)

From that point onward, I put aside what I had as memorabilia, nurgle minis included, and started fresh with some plastic Nurglings and some plastic Plaguebearers. I made some killer conversions since then, some nurgley chaos spawn that I've used as Beasts of Nurgle and the Palanquin conversion you see here (he's not that glossy in real life I swear) and have been become more and more committed to conversions as time has gone by, just doing little things like changing arm postures, carving out new wounds, filling up old ones, I've actually come to really enjoy the creative freedom I have with a Nurgle army, it's way better than I expected. If you like the idea of being able to easily play god with a knife and some greenstuff, then I would whole-heartedly recommend playing Nurgle Daemons-- they're the best.
