You have to be 10-man to take a second weapon.

I'd honestly start taking a look at Scouts.
Your choice of Bolter, Sniper Rifle, Astartes Shotgun, or Combat Knife. You can also take Cameo Cloaks, a Heavy Bolter or Missile Launcher, and Combi-Weapon on the Sergeant.

Hell, rules-as-written even gives the Sergeant access to a Thunder Hammer at the moment.

If you're dead-set on Tactical Marines then do as others have suggested and have two 5-man squads share a transport, each armed with one special or heavy and a weapon on the sergeant.

It wasn't implied before that you intended to mix armies with your Patrols.
I guess it makes sense now, in context, but I genuinely thought you wanted two separate AdMech Patrols that were in the same overall list.

You're right to keep them separate though, because Canticles has a special requirement which states that, "units only receive the bonus if every model in their Detachment has this ability."
Meaning if you combine AdMech with anything else in the same Detachment, you lose Canticles.

So yeah, keep em separate, unless you're planning to run two AdMech Patrols, then combine them for more Command Points.

D-scythe looks very balanced actually: Pitiful number of hits for a flamer and one wound each, but it's nigh guaranteed to score that wound no matter the target outside of an invulnerable getting in the way.

5 guard hit 10 times, fail maybe 2 wounds, roll invul or a 6+ if you have 2+ armour.

So that does -exactly- what a suck chunks of matter into the warp gun should (hurt nearly anything) without actually being overpowered.

Wraithcannon is a little more dickish, but ultimately not worse than a Melta. Easier to wound, doesn't roll two sets of damage and pick the highest.

personally, I'd use the swords. Especially if your putting them in wave serpents. 3w is enough to get by most attacks, and if your running wraiths, you need the extra volume of kills. You have guard for the multi-wound models.


irrespective of cost, the swords are better against every single toughness/save combo (or tied) except for t7 1+ saves for single wound models,
axes are better against every single toughness/save combo for multi-wound models., and come with an invul save.

Icarus Array is very good against Dark Eldar and a couple other armies like Tau, but the Neutron is as far as I know the single most potent anti-tank weapon in the entire game on that scale. Personally I think the ratio is something like 1 Icarus and two or three Neutrons in every three or four Onagers, and I'm probably running four total eventually.

Also, always buy the extra stubber. Cheap cheerful extra dakka you can split fire.

swords are actually better against everything, because of the +1 attack and not -1 to hit.

Axes are universally better at multi-wound enemies, swords are (nearly) universally better at single wound enemies.

When you compare point for point tho, swords do more damage and score more unsaved wounds on everything. You pay a lot for that 4++ to reduce the damage efficiency.

There are shooty options for Deldar, and melee options.

Wych cults, which is where a lot of the melee lies, get to choose drugs which is huge. Transports are actually quite good at absorbing overwatch.
And agonizers are super cheap now.

On the other horrifically deformed hand Covens get silly tough as crap. I think wracks should always take their sweep guns, but they follow that up with getting stuck in.
Since that will be turn 2-3, those PfP buffs will be nice.

this sounds right to me.
They're T5 W3 means they are going to be targeted by heavier weapons, many of which will reduce the 3+ to 5+ or worse. The 4++ means that there aren't many good weapons to shoot at them, as the heavy weapons now don't get to use their AP and so waste some points.

Being gay or trans doesn't have much to do with it as long as you listen and die when they tell you to. In fact, conscription that includes gays and trannies is a great way to get rid of them if the higher level doesn't care for them. Why send all your good men to die and only leave degenerates?

What I mean is wraith guard and fire dragons have similar roles of dropping high value targets with multiple wounds and high toughness.

Now that the Emperor is basically not even around anymore, and all the Imperium's military forces rely on the AdMech for basically every vehicle, weapon, and piece of equipment, they're lucky they get any say in anything at all.

the ecclesiarchy and the mechanicus have hated each-other ever since goge vandire killed their manufactor general but its the polite and courteous hatred of people who have far bigger problems than an old grudge so nothing comes of it apart from the occasional drunken sorority party breaking out on terra and distrupting some Enginseers maintenance cycle

when it comes to poxwalkers, the characters they'll benefit most from would probably be something like
Typhus>>>Dark Apostle/Lord>Blightbringer

Dark apostle gives more rerolls than Lord, but Lord is more useful if you also have ranged units nearby. I'd say that poxwalkers really need some form of WS boost before thinking about a blightbringer, otherwise they'll do very little in combat.

Oh yeah, didn't even think about that. But that's allright as its LD buff isn't needed and the rerolls from lords is more useful for a mixed melee/ranged army.

Interesting note: CSM Daemon Princes give their reroll buff to both <legion> and daemons of the same god, and they're only at 8 wounds, so can be hidden.
Chaos Daemons Daemon Princes only grant their buff to daemons, and are at 10w, so can't be hidden, though they instead get their gods bonus (like fnp for nurgle), which CSMs princes don't.

The Harassmentdrake is rediculeously fast, really hard to kill in a short time, and has just enough damage output to not be easy to ignore. But the best part is that the Harassmentdrake is capable of tying any unit you like down in close combat from turn 1 onwards.

'Death Guard Army' is not a real thing yet. We don't have specific condexes and unique detachments etc.

What can be a Death Guard is on 24 of the Chaos Index PDF. Once you are a Death Guard you gain associated bonuses from Death Guard characters and you gain access to Death Guard unique units like poxwalkers who can't be found in any other legion.

Example: I can run Death Guard Plague Marines and Death Guard Poxwalkers and a Chaos Sorcerer of Slaanesh in the same army.

Example 2: I can also run plague marines as elites and assign them to Black Legion so that Abaddon can buff them, but they won't be Death Guard anymore and gain benefits from Typhus or certain psychich powers whatever.

I've been thinking about Acolyte squads a fair bit these last few days, and I'm convinced they can be a bit of a powerhouse unit for casual games when paired with a Valkyrie.
Advancing the Valk gives enough movement to position it for some precision hover movement on your second turn, which you can use to grav-chute insert without penalty.
The only question is, how to kit them out? I'm thinking that plasma guns or combi flamers are good for targeting 1-2W models, and storm bolters in rapid fire range put out 4 shots per 10 points of models.
How about other options, and what about Inquisitors, should we be making them cheap and disposable or is there a decent return on putting points into them for advanced weapons?

You still get to affect more models with each order, take fewer commissar casualties and need fewer charge rerolls, which means it might work out.

However, I would expect regular guardsmen to go up a point too. They are pretty good compared to similar units; probably better than cultists, who are already 5 ppm.

The best IMO, is the Onager, shit at both infantry and vehicles as easy than any other units, and their guns are better than Russes. But for infantry it was Vanguards, like usual.

Additionally, I'm considering trying to improve the formatting a bit later, maybe throwing in some conditional formatting to the cost-efficiency tables to indicate more visually what options are more or less efficient, though that would require me to establish what "good" and "bad" cost-efficiencies look like for each target.

Noice. Keep up the good work.

So I only really had a chance to lightly skim through the new rules and I have a weird question.

I play Custodes primarily; is it possible to run my pure Custodes force in 8th or do I still need an HQ? If I need an HQ, can I run Celestine as just that? I like the all gold theme so I'm hoping it can work like it did in 7th.

GW (allegedly) said on stream that a custodian guard squad can be nominated as an hq and even if you wanted to you could take Celestine as she bares the <imperium> keyword

The leaks apparently miss a couple of Custodes pages. During the Custodes v Astra Militarum GW supposedly said Custodian Guard squads can be taken as HQ, Elites and Troops.

Interesting to see how nemesis halberds and warding staves BTFO of nemesis swords all day erry day.

Mine.

I run a weird Mercenary Group, IG base.

"looted" stuff from Tau/Eldar. XV8-Sentinels, Devilfish-Chimeras, fusionblaster-meltas, etc.

but also "brainboxed" Tyranids in the vein of Dino-Riders. They're supposed to be controlled by fake synapse signals and shit.

From what we saw from the hellforged leviathan, I only hope its loyalist variant is just as scary

It's not broken, has most of the armies on it and is updated every day.

You're just a lazy faggot.

So DA black sword missiles are heavy 10, S 7, -1 AP, 2 Damage.
DA flyer is one of the best vehicles in the game until they fix the typo

Guarantee you the loyalist one will not be as good in melee. Which is too bad because I'm planning on getting one that's at least 50% melee.
