Reposting from last thread.

>The more I look at it the more I think Tyranids are not as strong as people were initially saying. I think nids were just so used to being shit for so long that every single buff immediately jumped out at them and looked great, but they need them just to stay afloat, it doesn't look like it's actually pushing them to the top necessarily.

>Now this is just in terms of pure fighty value. They might turn out to be sick good at the objective game or something, but I don't think nids are going to be tabling other armies in 2-3 turns like the alarmists are crying about.

Custodes. I've played termie and walker heavy Iron Warriors for a few years now, but when BoP came out I picked up a few Custodes and I quite enjoyed painting them. After Talons came out I ended up with three Land Raiders, a couple of Contemptors and some more general Custodes.

I've always been a fan of elite units charging into battle. I've always tried to bring a LR with four termies and a lord despite it being pretty noncompetitive (until now?). Now I can't even fit a Lord in a Raider. The Custodes on the other hand can ride into combat in their gilded shagging wagons. I love the Contemptor model and the overall feel of a very small model count super elite army.

The rules have hurt them pretty badly thanks to losing Deep Strike. But I've decided I don't really care. I'll run my dudes as best I can and hope we get some good stuff from a Codex in the future.

looking forward to playing my Raven Guard. they may have taken my chapter tactics for now but I will adapt. Strike, Fade, and Strike again!

memeposting aside, Shrike finally got the chapter master tag and seems to be worth actually fielding because of the ability to reroll charges with JP units nearby. This makes the chances of getting into melee with those units on arrival go from 27% to about 53% so just over 50/50 for first turn charges. Feelsgoodman

Damn, I really need to rework everything.
I run trukk heavy, so aside from adjusting to the new points, I also have to consider stocking up on boys again, since now it make sense to field more than the bare 10.
Might also move away from power klaws to save some points here and there.
And if I understand the BW correctly, I can field lootas and flash gitz in it and they can move and shoot without the -1?

And there is no fix to hit on 6, right? If an ork gets -2 on his to hit roll, he can't hit the target at all?

Everyone complained that half of their shit was dying turn 1 from shooting so they made everything durable. They made cover worse because it was total cancer in 7th. So to add to everything being more durable they also made things harder to hit. I love it.

By that logic, a Monolith will never be able to shoot anything because it does not have a viewport.

The rules as stated say "if unsure, stoop down behind the shooting model." What does stooping mean? How many inches away do you have to be behind the tank to determine if it can see? What happens if the vehicle is so big that getting behind it conceals vision to the other model?

I'm feel really grateful for the group I have. None of us have ever had competitive armies. Our one Tau player has a single Riptide that he has never used with us.

the part I like is that the 2+ is no longer "extremely good" or "completely irrelevent" with no in between.
2+ saves were so good that either armies with little access to ap2 felt like they couldn't do shit, and other armies to compensate had so much ap2 that the armor felt useless.

Now more guns feel worth shooting at them (over just tones of small arms fire), and even against the better guns the termi will likely still have a 3+ or 4+ save especially if in cover. They'll still want the 5+ invuln against meltaguns, but they have that and it feels right.

No, they're the least popular god-specific faction. Khorne is the most popular, though Tzeentch has been rising due to the new models, and some people love Slaanesh. I've never met anyone who plays Nurgle in almost 15 years.

I play inquisition (with inquisitorial stormtroopers of course) and comparing acolytes to storm troopers is a dumb idea.

Storm troopers are good because they deep strike and have cheap BS3+ special weapons.

Acolytes are good because they have 2 attacks each, 3 wounds and can take crazy wargear.

So 10 acolytes with hotshot lasguns fucking suck.

Common sense and 40k doesn't always happen. Look at how long it took GW to FAQ drop pod doors. Look at 5th edition FAQs also. They had to FAQ that Deffrollas can be used on vehicles because sperglords argued "Ramming is a form of Tank shock" meant "Ramming is not tank shock", and that Doom of Malan'tai did not have an Invulnerable Save because the rules for Warp Fields state that "Zoanthroapes with a Warp Field have a 3+ Invulnerable save."

Is there any way to keep the Big Mek from getting sniped? I heard that's one of the biggest banes of characters in 8th now.

Also, I'm not sure I'd put the KFF on the Wazzbomma given it's got the 5++ chaff launcher. A KFF would also mean there is a chance it's giving the enemy an Invulnerable if it's near them or over them.

Would be neat if they broke it down a couple of ways. Looted Vehicles could be looted from different factions, and each gives the base Looted profile some enhancements.

Off the top of my head, I'd say Astra Militarum, Space Marine, and Tau units would make good profiles for looting, probably basing these off their basic transports and kitting them with a selection of Orky options for customization. Not sure about Eldar, Necrons, Tyranids, and other factions, but hey three common factions with basic vehicles to loot from would make a good starting point.

well that's not a thing this edition.
anything can wound anything, and AP is not a sliding scale rather than all or nothing. (these are both good things).

That said, S6 lets you wound t3 on 2+ and S8 lets you wound t4 on 2+.

most vehicles (and monster) have a 3+ save, and t6-8. so anti vehicle weapons will want to be ap-2 at least probably -3. Do to the way wounds work now S4 to s6 are pretty much the same vs most vehicles. as is s9+.

The multiple wound thing is going to make all that more complicated.

>> No.53580937

I'd say scythe, but I'm not sure how to rate the range difference.
Without the range the scythe is better in most situations. outside of the few t8 heavies they will both wound on the same rolls.
and d3 attacks d3 damage comes out to average of 4 times hit and wound chance.
1 attack d6 damage is 3.5 times hit+wound chance.
And that's vs high wound models. If your going against 1-2 wound models the extra wounds from the lance get wasted, so the sycthe is better.

They're merely good now. Those units that appear undercosted are in fact actually exactly costed for what they can do, which is still situational and not effective against some targets.

-3x Deffkoptas
-5x Nobz w/Trukk
-Regular Ork Plane who's name escapes me
-3 Zzap Gunz
-Ghazghul
-Weirdboy
-Big Mek with KFF

Overall it was a pretty back and forth game - highlights for him are bringing down the Wraithknight with a combination of a Slugga Boy and Ghazghul charge (after doing 6 wounds to it with smite thanks to using a command point to re-roll wounds). He also knocked out two Reavers early thanks to a good usage of 'Da Jump' on a slugga boy unit.

I was casting fortune on my big bike unit and dooming a unit which still results in a lot of dead boyz. Ultimately I took it because I got first blood off his Trukk and was able to stay more mobile towards the end of the game.

30 Slugga Boyz vs 30 Shoota Boyz

Charging MEQs without advancing first
Sluggas
>Shooting 30 sluggas - 1.67 damage
>90 attacks on the charge - 10 damage
>Total = 11.67 damage
Shootas
>Shooting 30 shootas - 3.33 damage
>60 attacks on the charge - 6.67 damage
>Total = 10 damage

Charging MEQs after advancing
Sluggas
>No shooting
>90 attacks on the charge - 10 damage
>Total = 10 damage
Shootas
>Shooting 30 shootas (6+ to hit) - 1.67 damage
>60 attacks on the charge - 6.67 damage
>Total = 8.33 damage

So it looks like shootas are better only if you get at least one round of gunfire before your charge turn.
Like >>53580912 pointed out, Shootas are better if you're likely to get at least a few rounds of shooting out of them before you get into combat.
Once you're actually in combat, though, sluggas pull ahead by a huge margin. Their default melee attacks do as much damage as the shootas firing and then charging, and that's before you even factor in the extra slugga shots.
It's a close call, but basically you want shootas if combat isn't guaranteed, but if you're pretty sure you can make it into combat, sluggas are way better.
