Special Rules:
No leader: Mr. Whiskers bows to now man and gives no fucks even for the rules of the game. Neither player controls Mr. Whiskers.
No Caring: Deploy Mr. Whiskers in reserves and roll as normal. When he arrives, place him on the table and let him wonder it has he pleases.
No Mercy: If Mr. Whiskers sniffs a model, that model's unit takes a 5+D6 leadership check. If he swipes or taps a model the unit takes a number of S10 AP-5 hits equal to the number of units touched. If Mr. Whiskers tries to bite or lay down on a model it is eliminated from play.
No Obligations: When Mr. Whiskers jumps off the table, he does not enter ongoing reserves and is effectively removed from the game. However, no killpoints are ever awarded for the loss of Mr. Whiskers.

Well, they'd hop through the Warp more than fight through it, but otherwise sounds cool. Stick a Lucian icon on the engines, show they've got similar tech to the Legio Astorum Warp Runners.

How are you doing the drop-assault? Counts-as Scions or D-99? Might be fun to add in some Flamer drop squads. I know in 30k you can drop Secutarii in with Arvus Lighters and more or less automatically gib a Baneblade or Spartan with 12 BS5 Cognis Haywire shots, which is an excellent cheesy tactic for telling deathstars to fuck off, but we can't do that here.

I think it's a sensible move. I don't see why flyers have to compete with other fast-attack choices for slots.

So let me see if I understand this correctly. Assuming in 8th edition, if orks are ld 7 or even 8 for bosses, and I am running 30 orks in a squad, 15 of them get shot to death that turn, I then lose a guaranteed 8 +D6 MORE at the end?

So if they sperg out and the ork book comes out, and they leave in green tide, I lose 40 orks due to eating all the enemy firepower that turn, then at the end I am losing another 33 +D6 orks??! ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?

That's a lot of assuming there.

I'm using a Skitarii Maniple to fill up points next to my Elimination Maniple. I'm wondering if I should use the Datasmith or one of the Skitarii Alphas (the one in the PlasCal squad) as my Warlord and also which table would be best to roll on.

A Datasmith Warlord obviously has the advantage of being with the robots and can potentially get the 8+ canticle for his unit while the Alpha has the Preferred Enemy bonus. Not sure if using the Skitarii traits and Tactical Objectives would be optimal either on that one, since Strategic Traits have some very powerful stuff in them and Skitarii objectives having some requiring Skitarii units, which I'm only using 2 minimum sized ones of.

I can't actually tell if this is Poe's Law or not.

Taking you seriously though... even though I like me some SMs, don't you think this is just a side-effect of GW spending much more time developing them than all the other factions?

Also, if we're doing unpopular 40K opinions: the Dreadknight wasn't nearly as bad as people like to say, at least aesthetically. Centurions look infinitely worse.

Tau were REALLY made to try and draw in anime fans around the turn of the century, when anime and manga were getting big in the West. GW more-or-less admitted this when they came out.

>>53087444
I developed an irrational dislike of Riptides, after seeing so many people pandering on WIP threads, etc. by posting their unpainted, unconverted, and totally unremarkable Riptides just after they came out, for no reason other than because the kit/unit was all the rage at the time.

>>53087781
>other than the fact that they're probably a Geedubs incentive to make painting even easier.
Well, that, and the fact that they probably want to give 40K its own Sigmarine analogue. You know, despite Sigmarines existing mainly to give AoS its own Space Marine analogue.

It's like a vicious cycle of one-upsmanship, in an attempt to make the most SOOPAR EPIK faction to draw in the over-excited, sugar-rushing kiddies.

Hopefully, but you know GW will suck the Tau's dick some more. I fucking hate the Tau and their fucking weeb players so much. The plot armor is so thick and pandering that it's shameful. Every fucking time the Tau turn up every other faction has to be written in the most pants on head retarded way that I wish I could strangle whoever wrote such trash. Because god forbid the factions are just written decently. No, it can't just be the Tau outsmart someone or win like an underdog, the Tau writers and players aren't happy unless the opposing faction is written like a bunch of slack jawed mongoloids who sit around shitting their pants compared to the grand Tau.

And I know Tau can be decent, like the Farsight Enclaves. So why are the regular Tau so full of bullshit? Are useless weeb faggots that much of a moneymaker where they can't stand to see their faction have to win on their own merits and have to win against neutered and mentally damaged versions of everybody?

What varnishes do you use to protect your models? My testors dull coat still seems to scuff sometimes. Dunno if Im just not putting enough on or not.

>Is 40k Satire?
We're through the looking glass people.

But in all seriousness, it is as big of a satire as is possible. Every single element of classic 40k down to the names of even the minor characters and planets are fucking jokes.

every army will get its own thing. how they choose to classify army is still debated (for some fucking reason).

They'll announce the new starter set, probably do a batrep or two. they have enough to last a while.

While a lot of the thread has been lost, I think that it's still widely acknowledged by the writers that it's a satirical setting. It takes itself seriously for the sake of marketing to a modern audience that doesn't remember the 80's, but the heart and soul is still satire, ymmv.

Things we want that could eat up two weeks each if one day per faction:
Example models from each faction
Faction-specific detachments
How factions handle leadership (synergy, ATSKNF, Commissars, etc.)
Special new Lord of War releases like Primarchs

Things we'll get:
A day on NEW and IMPROVED Challenge rules
In-depth coverage on minute terrain rule changes
Some generic paragraphs vaguely hinting at future plot developments
One day talking about each faction in the most general terms, offering nothing new, and teasing one model's stat line

Nope.

Just Space Marines, Eldar, and Tau will get new shit.

Every other army will get rules, but nothing new.

GW will start to phase out everything that isn't a Space Marine.

Deadpool is a cancer to nerd culture, if you even want to unify every single nerdy facet of media under one "culture."

People who genuinely find Deadpool funny or clever need to be shunned.

Honestly doesn't bother me. What would bother me is if these aren't just truescale marines and instead are some special type of marine that's introduced.

I have marines from nearly every edition and each has their role in my Legion

Nothing wrong with enjoying Deadpool.

People taking it to the extreme and obsessing about the character is fucking cancer though.

Especially when it seems most of the obsession comes from the people that have never even opened a comic book.
