Rolled 12 (1d26)

Word Bearer Problems edition
Paragon Chainmace subedition

Imp Fists forgot their Terminators, HH is for awesome, robot bullying occurred and SW are considered worst Legion. Lorgar got smacked down by Magnus and Ferrus but still did a better job. Emps is a dog person and Praetors argued about swords or hammers. Ashen Circle are lackluster choppy but excellent bullies, and Erebus and Kor still can't find a purpose in life. All this and more in the last thread >>53095866

>Thread FAQ

>Official HH 7th Edition Errata (not updated since January 2016)

What to include in a HH list, how to format it, what makes each legion special (crunch), tactics, Tutorials for Heresy-era minis and more

>HH Books, Novels and Rulebooks galore

>/HHG/'s Legion demographics

>/HHG/'s allegiances

>Primarch Popularity Poll


>> No.53111926

First for anybody got ideas for a good IF list? Tryina encompass all the aspects and themes that make them oh-so-loveable, while still keeping a solid list overall.

Imperial Fists: Pride of the Legion
>Praetor: Terminator Armor, Paragon Blade, Storm Shield, Digital Weapons

>Templar Brethren: 7 Templars, Solarite Power Gauntlet, LR Phobos
>Templar Brethren: 7 Templars, Solarite Power Gauntlet, Rhino
>Apothecarion Detachment: 2 Medicae, Power Swords
>Legion Rapiers: 3 Laser Destroyer Arrays

>Terminator Squad: 3 Power Fists, 2 Chain Fists, Iliastus Assault Cannon, Teleportation Transponder
>Terminator Squad: 3 Power Fists, 2 Chain Fists, Iliastus Assault Cannon, Teleportation Transponder
>Veteran Tactical Squad: 7 Veterans, Combi-Weapons, Rhino
>Veteran Tactical Squad: 7 Veterans, Combi-Weapons, Rhino

>3 Javelin Landspeeders

>Deredeo Dreadnought: Plasma Cannonade
>Sicarian Battle Tank: Lascannon Sponsons, Dozer Blade
>Vindicators: Dozer Blade, Machine Spirit

So I like it a lot, my only thought/concern is that the rhino Templars might be a bit useless, maybe it'd be a little more advantageous to grab a third terminator Squad and some nuncio-voxes instead?

Also it's really disappointing Champion Consuls suck so much, 35 points for effectively nothing (especially with Fists since the power gauntlet is better and has MC base) suuuucks. At least with like UM or something you can grab one of those swanky axes.

A hidden (i.e. not on the sergeant) axe or two can help, but you may be overspending on them, with combiweapons & powerweapons and so on when you don't even have full squads. Don't forget, 10 IF marksmen vets with just bolters are still pretty darn effective. Most people only put combiweapons on every model when they intend the unit as a suicide team (drop in, kill something costing more than them, die). So, what role do you actually have in mind for those two squads?

I blame ADB.

>> No.53113055

As are quad-mortars and Spartans, which I would argue are considerably less fun than the tac blob lists that Calth and Prospero encourage

Also, why are boops considered cancer? They have very little dakka or choppy for cost, honestly, and they're predictable and easily tarpitted since they can't Sweeping advance. I play Reductor, but the Vorax I like to use tend to be gunned down fairly easily.

Joking aside, I don't think plastic marines are the main cause of vet spam, I honestly think the red book is.

Kek. IW Legion Inductees gives nothing to the bots, since they're already Fearless and lack meltabombs. It's weird how Narik Dreygur functions better as a Sallie mind-slave than as a regular IW legionnaire.
Best robbuts is like asking for best LA rules. Not only it's asking what is the best combination of ranged, melee and positioning, but it's more about what you want. If you want "best" then play Memestodes or something like that.

>> No.53113279

My thought with the vets was to either give them sniper/tank hunters based off what I'm going against,

For the combiguns, I just figured melta would be good, though plasma/flamer could be fun too (that sillyass sniper-flame thing is hilarious imo). IDK of maybe it's better to do all power weapons with a few combis, or all combis with a few weapons, or just base, or somewhere in between

>> No.53113287

Well, that is what you can get out of the box, but I don't think making it possible to get lots of marines cheaply is going to exactly discourage the builds that use lots of Marines. Vets are just too good for cost.

>> No.53113362

>I honestly think the red book is. Vets are so damn economical for what you get, and tacs are so pants at anything not standing on an objective getting shot in the face, that it's not a surprise people swap out their tacs for vets.
Agreed. Tacticals aren't even the best at holding points, that's a job mortals do better (36" Lasrifles of rerollable Ld10, 50 Stubborn/Fearless Levies or Fearless+FnP+Revival thralls). Bolters just don't cut it, despoilers are pretty much assault marines on foot, and the biggest offender is that the only squads that matter, 20-man ones, need an attached Elites/Fast/Heavy option to be viable, lest they're shot off the squad by the AP3+ artillery the Ispace Gstartes are known for.

Meanwhile, Veterans are tacticals that only cost +15pts when compared to a similarly equipped tactical squad, swap Fury of the Legion for Sniper & Outflank / Machine killers and have access to power and special weapons, and don't need a huge transport or apothecary to be able to reach the enemy.

Who wouldn't want them?
This is FW's fault, and they will NEVER fix it. Not even 8E will, mark my words.

That's a fair point - I think Bio-Corrosive Vorax would be cool in DG - don't know if it'd be all that good, but I can never resist an opportunity for chem/bio weapons

>> No.53113648

Going by the cool factor, now that's something I can comment on. DG really up the biochem scope of their weaponry.
Battle Automata gain a FnP against poison on top of their rerolling of poison damage. Bio-corrosive rounds will mean you can only shoot prior to the assault, but Vorax' Scout is a good complement to the slow DG in the Reaping. Give the Praevian rad grenades and Vorax S6 will scythe the enemy.

Besides Scoria, your characters (all three :^)) give up something, so no not really.

Decima get his scrapcode scream and EW, but has shit stats and can't get a 3++ like generic characters, and corrupted his force with his anger despite lacking a Djinn-skein. He's only good for suicide drops and the Droplites are better at it.

Bonus points with alpha legion. Infiltrate from mutible tactics, combi meltas, bane strike ammo, and machine killers. You've got a squad that can now blast vehicles with st9 ap1 shots and blast meqs with ap3 rending from banestrike to make up for not having marksmen. If you really need to take down vehicles up close, give them tank hunters with mutible tactics. 10 st 9 ap1 shots that refill armor pen. Brutal.

Maybe something where you form a Word Bearers battleline and then Daemons deepstrike in turn 2, with buffs to reserves and some form of offensive buff the turn they land? Like Sacrificial Offering, but with more damage-focus.
Say you can join Word Bearers Daemons (and anything with Burning Lore/Lorgar) to a Daemon unit in reserves, and those units are guided in to make reserve rolls on Turn 1 or Disordered Charge the turn they arrive. Landing units do something to fuck with your opponent or boost you, too, so you can drop in Lorgar with Gal Vorbak and a mixed force of Daemons in to suddenly be all up in their faces after taking a turn or two of hits on a weakened force, or bring them in Turn 1 at the cost of offensive output. Penalties are that you must put all your Codex:Daemons units in Reserve and there bust be at least 4 units in reserve, and the primary force must have one or more Psykers rolling or selecting from Malefic Demonology to call them in. Also, no mundane deepstriking from stuff like Ashens because Warp Storms fuck with that.

>> No.53116070

Last of the Gal Vorbak should give their deepstrike an explosion on arrival like the Dreadclaws, instead of forcing them to take dreadclaws.
And there should be a way to turn ICs other than Diabolists into daemons, so they can deepstrike alongside Vorbaks.

Of course full Traitor. Beep Boop fuck the Loyalists, right? Also I figure Admech loses every battle anyway, so nothing to lose by joining the actually sane side.

True, I just see a lot of Legion-specific stuff in my meta with minimal Vets or Termie tax, so I tend to prefer heavier ordnance over risky melee fights. When over half the enemy is Terminators, Medusae and Levy blobs start looking damn shiny.
That seems stupid, given there's a lot more high T stuff around and they've tried to emphasise single shot AT with multiple wounds.
The old chart wasn't exactly hard to work out, I'm continuing my opinion that they've gone a little too far in pursuit of simplicity. RIP templates for one thing, this just seems a little superfluous.

They're expensive for what amounts to S5 Stubborn & Fear Terminator Bodyguard, can't be taken as Command Squad for a praetor, and minimum squad size is 5, so they won't fit into a land raider with a praetor.

Based on the fact militia can buy Land Raiders in very specific circumstances, I would not be surprised if the old fluff actually still applies.

"Choose" is crystal clear. The only people who think you can't choose are turbofags in denial who willfully disregard RAW because they don't like it and then act superior to those who actually follow the rules of the game.

>> No.53128183

I'm running from memory, but iirc there was some bit of fluff that the primary forge world for Land Raiders for the Imperium (and one of the only) was either seriously damaged or destroyed during the Heresy, so Big E decreed that all remaining LRs would be for Astartes use only to make better use of the limited quantities left.

>> No.53128189

Thunderhammers are expensive for what they do, but what they do can sometimes mean the difference between losing an assault slightly and winning one bigly. I keep my th on my praetor and the bodyguard have fists and chain fists. I only take axes if the unit can't otherwise take fists or chainfists.

>> No.53128201

Unless you're not a native English speaker, there is no way you could interpret "may choose" not to mean they...can choose. If you want to houserule to nerf armies you're butthurt about, fine, but don't pretend your houserule is the correct RAI or some bullshit.

>> No.53128219

Index Astartes says the LR was popular and used by almost every human force. A bunch of power armoured humans getting to field a few proteus variants doesn't exactly convey that sentiment. Especially when the creme of the crop SA can't take them.

>> No.53128269

Yes, that's mentioned in IA, happening at the onset of the Heresy, but it also says that the decree that only Marines can use LRs came as Horus' forces were conquering Terra, which were towards the very end of the Heresy.

>> No.53128331

Yes, Anvilus IX. I think the old fluff suggested it fell to the Dark Mechanicus early.

On another note - White Scars breachers, should I give them boarding shields, breacher shields (harder to get by themselves), or round shields? Round ones are more Mongolian but I'm not sure how far I want to carry that theme.

The Path of Heaven mentions breacher squads and, on a separate occasion, storm shields.

Don't know how historically accurate it is, but other games (both tabletop and vidya) often have mongol infantry with these big rectangular shields. So, I'd just go with normal breacher shields, as they're that shape.

Those are buckler shields, which were common in Europe and Asia for a time though mostly for infantry with one-handed swords, I think. They were obviously not for missile fire but they were good for parrying and punching (i.e. dueling). A google search gives vague references to Mongols using them, but without details. I'm not sure how cavalry would make use of them.

$24 for a set of 10 shields is a little over half of what it costs for 5 Breacher marines from FW ($45 at current conversion rates), and that's not even factoring in international shipping. So I'd consider the fact that I can get a box of plastic MkIIIs ($50 MSRP, $35-40 online) and 10 breacher shields for notably less than FW (again, before shipping costs) well worth the 5 minutes it'll take me to clean up a shield.

And that's if I ever wanted Breachers. Since they're basically garbage until they get some sort of buff, it'd be purely for aesthetics.

A point shield generator must be mounted somewhere. It's a directional non-newtonian field that, like its name suggests, hardens on impact, but hysteresis limits it's power to a certain degree.
You'd need a different kind of generator if you wanted 360° 24/7 bodily protection, and that kind of power costs. Iron Halos and refractor fields aren't that common, without those you need the bulk of terminator armour and dedicated generators to fuel those power-hungry systems.
Mount the shield generator on whatever bit of hardened material you can find. I mean, the big boarding shield you're thinking of? That's ablative material, not meant to last the whole campaign without repair.
