Here's a question: If models are in 8th allowed to fire all of their weapons in one shooting phase, does that mean that when within 12" of the enemy can we rapid fire the bolter and then follow up with the pistol for 3 attacks per man?

Do they frown upon it? Do you keep it secret?

>> No.53136940

They might get btfo. Or they might get something else.

It does make some sense, that you can fire all your weapons at a target they have in range.

So bolters target one thing, and only one thing.
Flamers another single thing.

So strictly speaking this might not be an end to the splitfire rule.

Im thinking of getting back into table top. I have a old Farsight Enclave army, before they had their own book.

However, I just want to have fun, and not be competitive.

So I was wondering, how is a Gretchen themed army? Like Gretchen for troops, Grot Tank for elite, Grot Mega Tanks for fast, and I guess either kill kans with a dread, or big mek guns, and lastly a big mek(as otherwise I can't take the Grot tanks).

Would people be pissy since I would be using forge world models, or would it be accepted since their Gretchen, and chances are will end up blowing themselves up?

Nah, I'm honestly surprised they got a plastic kit. I never see them outside of a few conversions.

Most folks seem to hate on fw for one of two reasons.
The cost.
The power creep.

The cost is a boohoo, cry some more issue for me.
At the moment, fw charges the exact same (high) price for orders from my country as they do for orders from the uk. gw on the other hand, charge close to double (after currency conversion) on some models, and always a sizeable bump, compared to what the same model costs in the U.K.
So fw to me are good guy gary. And gw are the scumbags.

The power level of forgeworld is another issue. In most cases however the points cost in part, and the unit type cover most of the OP nature of their models. Most. Not all. Something's are broken. But this is not limited to fw.
>grav spam. Eldar. Decurion. Formations in general.

Your local gw store might have issues with you playing their game with models they didn't sell you. But fuck'em it's their company bending them over.

I'm hopeful for 8e. The Skitarii have some great anti-vehicle weaponry, and in the age of unstoppable 80 wound land raiders they might end up becoming super duper useful.

Also word on the street is they'll be rolled in with cult mech (finally!! <3) so there'll be more options.

As far as money goes, Ad Mech is more expensive than space marines, but less than Sisters. It's about average for a 40k army. You can do what I did and cut down the money cost by inflating the point cost with special weapons.

my mom does not like the cost and she's kinda christian, so i only show her pics of tanks and not to scary looking stuff but she's mostly impressed about the skill that goes into it. same for my dad when he was still alive, minus the christian bit

some of my coworkers know, if someone asks what my hobbies are i say 'playing witht toy soldiers wich i have to build and paint first' and then i show them some pics. some think it's wierd, others don't care and some ask for more pics from time to time because they like the models and want to see what i'm up to

all of my friends know because i have a display cabinet with warhamms and other wierd/wonderfull objects in my livingroom and most of the time half my desk is covered in painting/modelling related stuff, they see it as part of me i guess. it's come to a point where even my more normie (gods i hate that word) friends wander to the display cabinet to check if there's something new or comment on some wip project going on when they visit

I want a few seats of combi-weapons and Lascannons that are compatible with plastic HH models, and he's also one of the few who has them now. MI has the Lascannons (she's my favorite so far), but the only one I've seen with new styled combi is Alpharius.

Despite the fact that this is bait, I'm still going to illuminate all the things wrong with it for people who are just joining us and have no idea what the rules in 8th are:

>Brings a Titan formation to a "narrative" game
Formations no longer exist, and narrative games don't mean "unbalanced games where you can do whatever you want", that's Open games

>Opponent sends fabious bile into combat with them
>he hits first due to assaulting
>wounds on 6+ (because everything can do that in 8th
The only part that's correct

>His weapon is Instant Death
No longer a thing, weapons can deal multiple Wounds per hit or even Mortal Wounds which ignore saves and don't need to roll to Wound, but you'll never be removing a 10+ Wounds model in one hit with anything.

>Remove other 2 Titans after failing battle shock
Not even remotely how battleshock works. Titans aren't going to be squadroned together and even if they were they're not going to have a Leadership lower than 7.

My roommate plays music and is heavily into the local hardcore music scene. He will never play 40K but likes the concept of miniature models (he expressed considering getting into model railroads as a kid) but thinks my minis are cool and likes checking out whatever new ones I get. He did mention wanting to paint one sometime after seeing a bunch of old models I was stripping.

Most of my other friends are active players or are at least into some sort of hobby.

Any of my coworkers who have found out have no idea what Warhammer 40K is and the quickest/easiest way I have found to describe it is that it's similar to chess but with hundreds of pieces on each side instead of just 24. The only reason they even know about it is I work mornings on a specific day every week so I can get out in time to head down to the LGS to get some games in.

Honestly and without fanboyism? Necromunda. It was one of the first and offered some really great choices from generic cadian-like Warriors of the Imperium to the much more stylized ganger-reminiscent guardsmen - which opens up some real fun and styles for heavy weapon teams. You can keep the absolute generic any-worlder thing the cadians had in addition to opening the option for a much clearer "This is Necromundan" guardsmen.

They'd definitely need a line update, but I really would like a way that allows a way of differentiation, rather than the "all of these cadians are actually my custom regiment from xx...." we have today.

I almost tabled him and he ran behind cover, he outnumbered me and if we'd been playing kill points of he was forced to come out in the open for the 3rd objective he'd have lost hard, he legit only won, by a single point, because he hid behind as much crap as possible to put everything he had outside of line of sight.

I did rush him down but by the time I started moving towards him he'd wasted so much game time measuring and checking line of sight that the game was forced to end early. He was a piece of shit.
No other player has ever done this, it was just the one Tau player. Only other game I had against Tau they got stomped because there was no objective markers to save them and the terrain had less buildings and more ruins that I could see through.

it's not a problem of naming convention, it's a problem of you looking like a raging retard for no other reason than 'I disliked one game with this guy'.
You're starting to make me think of yesterday's "a d6 has no average"-anon, loosing all legitimacy/credibility because you can't stop using swear words for a single post.
I can understand you being a little upset remembering this game, and calling him a poo-head in a post, but 5 posts in a row can make people think you're obsessive

What's wrong with swear words? They're words, I'm using these ones in an insulting manner to describe this one cunt.
How the fuck does using swear words reduce legitimacy of a statement? We're all adults here, probably, we can swear, using a swear word as a fucking adjective doesn't do anything to the credibility of the sentence it's inside unless you're actually retarded.

You faced one dickhead tau player, we get it. This isn't your personal blog, start another conversion already.

Neck yourself

I use a classic genestealer blue-purple for the whole Fleet. I got a bunch of stuff secondhand off a friend when he quit nids that's still in red and tan Kraken scheme though, haven't gotten around to repainting all of it yet. Usually I'll just run one half or the other cuz it hurts my autism to have two different Hive Fleets on the table side by side even though they sometimes do this in the fluff.

I've always enjoyed Kraken fluffwise but I just don't like their scheme at all, it reminds me of McDonalds or something. Too flashy for a Fleet that was very much into stealth.

there's nothing wrong with swear words inherently, but overusing them just makes you look like an unstable individual.
Like you said, we're all adults here, and most adults don't feel the need to use 'fuck' or 'shit' every 3 words - it's more a marker of teenager's language actually (at least in my country). Dragging your language to high school level just make you look like one.
It also makes you closer to argumentum ad hominem and name-calling, while adding nothing to your argument.

yeah. also the new "chart" is more spread out which is good. You don't very quickly get to 2+/6+ wounding. T6+ is actually better off as well. Now that you need double S to get 2+ MCs and the like are much more rarely going to be wounded on 2+.
