Reposting from old thread: are new terminator models (e.g., blood angels, deathwing, or the termie captain) larger / bulkier than the generic SM terminator models?

This is from the new short story released today going into some of the details about the Tyranids

>‘The data-codex demonstrates the tyranids to be a highly hostile and adaptable race – an alien swarm made up of many different forms, each engineered for a specific purpose. Their aggression seems not to proceed from cultural prejudice or territorial concerns. They exist only, it seems, to assimilate encountered life into their bio-matrix. The building blocks of such life are then employed to propagate the tyranid species further. The gene-harvesting of victim-species assists in the engineering of further organism types and convey upon the alien swarm various environmental and aggressive advantages. A genetic arms race, if you will, in which the tyranid grows stronger with each new conquest.’

>It didn’t just want to kill him; it wanted to assimilate him. To absorb his flesh and craft atrocity from it. To become one with his essence, the building blocks of his existence, and rob him not just of his life but of the future of his entire race.

Why are the Tyranids so focused on assimilating the genetic material of other species and growing stronger? It's an arms race but against who? Do the Tyranids have some unknown enemy somewhere that requires them to go to these lengths to ensure they are the strongest living species around?

>‘Ballistics in three, two, one. Mark.’

>With a brief flash, the automaton weapon fired its foremost barrel upon the restrained monstrosity. A las-bolt ricocheted off the shell-like carapace, prompting the gaunt to hiss its displeasure. The servo-arm descended to almost point-blank range and fired again, resulting in a small explosion of burned chitin and a squeal from the tyranid creature. The servo-arm retreated above the beast to reveal that the second shot had barely penetrated the creature’s organic armour plating.

>‘Having already detailed the construct’s devastating physical capabilities, it seems ranged combat is our best option against these xenos beasts,’ Kryptman extrapolated. ‘By far the most common weapons available in the Imperium are las-based in their technology, but as we can see, strikes in the nineteen to twenty-two megathule range struggle to penetrate the fused, chitinous plates sported by many bio-constructs. Even successful penetrative blasts would be fortunate to hit an essential organ in Gaunti gladius’s sparse physiology.’

Las-weapons have a hard time penetrating the chitin armor of GAUNTS.

More and more we realize that lasguns are literally the worst basic weapon in 40K.

>‘The living surgical vivisection of the third xenos subject has been a success,’ Kryptman announced, producing a data-slate and scanning down it, ‘with the complete specimen recovered for further analysis, documentation and testing. The creature has demonstrated... a considerable resilience to shock and biological commitment to its genetically-engineered purpose. The chitin-carapace and skeletal structures stand up well to conventional blades, necessitating the use of chain- and power-tools.’ The inquisitor grinned. ‘The close combat equivalents of these tools would be expected to stand the best chance of wounding tyranid constructs at close quarters on the battlefield.’

Gaunts are remarkable resistant to melee'ed attacks which necessitates the usage of chain and power weapons to do damage to the creatures.

Lasgun is comparably lethal to autoguns which are pretty much modern assault rifles.

An AK could do it but it would have a hard time, between the bullet proof armour plates and resilient multi level redundant organs. A soldier could likely empty his whole clip into one as it charges him and stil fail to kill it before it kills him.

Will people still consider Eldar to be OP?

I started playing Eldar when I picked up this game a long time ago because I liked the idea of having a lot of supportive psykers backing my people, so I went with ulthwe.

But when playing people all I get is bitching that I am broken and then proceed to complain about things I am not even using or something that I have no other option to take for its role.
I don't use wraithknights to much wraiths in general which is common to hear them whine about being broken in 7th and when I use my wave serpents to transport my 2-3 guardian squads to their needed locations they bitch about my transport but it is the only one I have and when I tell them that they tell me the falcon can transport but it can't hold even the smallest guardian squad I can take.

I always take as many seers/warlocks I can because those are the biggest reasons I even wanted this army but then they bitch about them being on bikes and tell me I should footslog them or put them in a transport only to hear about how wave serpents are broken after I ask them if they want to have another one of them on the field.

Am I in for another edition of people complaining? I just want a army that supports and looks after itself.

The Death Korps of Krieg entry in the FW books has a differently worded version of Voice of Command:

Voice of Command
This unit may issue orders to those under their command at the start of any of their Shooting phases. Orders may only be issued to INFANTRY or CAVALRY units within 6" of this unit that have the DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG keyword. To issue an order, pick a target unit and choose which order you wish to issue from the table below. A unit may only be affected by one order per turn.

Duty unto death!
Any INFANTRY or CAVALRY model in the unit that is killed in the Fight phase immediately makes a single attack.

Without Mercy
All lasguns and all hot-shot lasguns in the ordered unit change their Type to Pistol 2 until the end of the turn.

Bring it Down!
Re-roll wound rolls of 1 for all the models in the ordered unit until the end of the phase.

Forwards, for the Emperor!
The ordered unit can shoot this phase even if it Advanced in its Movement phase.

Get Back in the Fight!
The ordered unit can shoot this phase even if it Fell Back in its Movement phase.

Move! Move! Move!
Instead of shooting this phase, the ordered unit immediately moves as if it were the Movement
phase. It must Advance as part of this move, and cannot declare a charge during this turn.

Fix Bayonets!
This order can only be issued to units that are within 1" of an enemy unit. The ordered unit immediately fights as if it were the Fight phase.
It states that a unit my only be affected once per turn, but there is no limit of one order given per unit using Voice of Command. RAW this means that a Korps marshal/officer could issue an order for each unit near it.

Do you think this is correct, or FW incompetence? Is it fluffy? Would you allow it in your games, or consider it WAACfagging (despite death korps not having first rank fire second rank fire)?

The main selling point of las weaponry over autoguns and other solid projectile weapons is ammo standardization, with a charge pack fitting anything from a man portable lascannon to a laspistol (obviously with different capacity).

while true, the range on orders is not large enough for it to make much difference unless you pay the vox tax on every unit, plus you should still take multiple officers unless one gets sniped

I think lasguns might be a bit more powerful, because in the Imperial Primer it warns that lasguns can blow off limbs when describing how to treat lasgun wounds.
I know a lot of the Primer is propoganda, but it also states that lasgun wounds cauterize themselves, so a clean bandage will often suffice, but bandaging a lasgun torso wound is largely cosmetic, because the heat from the las-bolt will cause fatal swelling of vital organs.

All weapons that were AP 5 or worse are now AP 0, boltguns didn't get singled out.

I agree with the choice, at a certain point (5+) a model's armor just didn't matter, and with a d6 system it created a huge gap between 4+ and 5+ saves. This change simultaneously made weapons that were AP 4 useful in their intended role, and gave units with 5+ saves a fighting chance against basic weaponry.

yeah I remember reading somewhere someone felt the hive mind was actually running away in fear from something, If we assume chaos is not contained to this one galaxy it could very well be they just migrated from somewhere where chaos just fucked up reality so bad there is no biomass so no more nutrients. Another known extragalactic faction are orks, it could be that nids got BTFO from orks so hard they had to abandon ship.

Most probably it's neither and just some "unknown threat" so people can theorise up. just like now. That doesn't mean they do what they do for a purpose, it's just their way of life so to say, When they turned on the light thingy they attracted the hive and it works like chemotaxis.

My personal headcanon as to why comes from the description of the Chaos gods as the reflections of the most powerful emotions of THIS galaxy.

Now imagine for a moment, that another far-off galaxy developed life and warp-resonance, but never sapience. What powerful emotions would create god-level reflections in the warp of of that galaxy? Sure there's lots of Anger, Despair, Excess, and Desperate Hope in the grimderpness of the future, but what about the 100% primal wilds? What comsumes the minds of animals? Eat. Breed. Survive. Now what would happen if this basic instinct were to resonate its own chaos god? The Great Devourer is a chaos god of its own galaxy. It does not reflect the complex emotions of sapient beings, but the primal and visceral need to feed and reproduce. It won whatever passed for a "great game" in its home galaxy, and has moved on to new hunting grounds. That's what the shadow in the warp is: The Devourer imposing its own warp paradigm on the world around it: one that the big 4 are not used to working with. That's why a species that's seemingly mindless is warp-sensitive, but never possessed. That's why a species seemingly devoted to efficiency in absorbing biomater chose such a dangerous galaxy to feed on: it's not just here to eat people, it's here to eat the chaos gods, because that's what The Devourer does. Khorne fights. Nurgle stagnates. Tzeench changes. Slaanesh parties. The Devourer, devours.

Actually in Inquisitor and in Dark Heresy its pretty easy to get your most dedicated stat to 40-50 ish as a normal human, the difference between humans and marines is that marines get Unnatural Toughness/Strength which flat out doubles their STR/Tough bonuses and gives them an automatic degree of success on those skills (plus a bunch of other astartes special rules)

Another start collecting scions and probably a valkyrie.

You'll want the taurox prime even if its empty, they're legitimate attack vehicles.

Just be warned that Scions are kinda fuckin expensive to make a 2000 point army of since each 200 point 10 man squad+taurox is $68. Luckily you play guard and can easily supplement them with some tanks or artillery that have an easier point per dollar ratio.

Anyway, I'm splitting hairs. That was my point, indices are somewhat balanced against one another. Sure there will be cheese lists but as the meta re-establishes itself I have faith that counters will likewise emerge. It's too early to put armies into tiers yet.

Oh I don't think they're totes broken, but a 210 power armor squad being able to mince a predator in one round of combat is pretty beasty. I'm impressed, not upset.

My only thing with PAGKs is they die quick, it seems. They look cool asf to start but I think from a mathematical standpoint making a frontline of Paladins/terminators backed up by a few lines of PAGKs is the best way to go

>not counts-asing weapons you don't like

>My only thing with PAGKs is they die quick, it seems.

They *need* the alpha strike, so deep strike your strike squads and paladins and put your interceptors in rhinos. If you're in cover your guys are fairly shooting resistant but you need to be able to legitimately weaken the enemy with your first alpha strike.

You're going to need some meat shield marines for those lascannon devs or you're going to be playing a 1835vs2000 point game.

Also 4 lascannon devs only do 5.185 wounds to a predator in one turn, a bit more with the auspex.

You want an Apothecary because it's only 77pts and he turns your guys into crypto-necrons. Add that to the already difficult to damage statline and you'd need to concentrate all your firepower in your entire army for 2 turns to do any damage to them. And they're only 250pts.

You should have at least 15, probably 20 Termie models (all magnetized) and somewhere between 20 and 30 PAGKs.

Start with a terminator box and a strike squad box, you can legitimately just take one of everything.

You'll need an HQ, so either get the brother captain model, Draigo or find Voldus on ebay for cheap.

You can hit 1000, 1500, 2000 points very fast as GKs. Don't go overboard with land raiders and just remember to always take a decent amount of power armor grey knights of some flavor.

Its not something to depend on but its a viable way to see broad ranges of effectiveness and expectations.

I'm assuming it must be a typo because purifying flame is NOT worth 7 PPM more than a strike squad.

If you ever want to run a 5 man murder escort of Pallies for a GM and then a full squad of GKTs, this is the way to go.

Never. People didn't raise enough of a stink, sadly. If everyone raises riot then MAYBE in the codex. But probably not.

A stormraven, box of Paladins, 10 or so terminators and twenty or so PAGKs will do ya fine.

I've found the combo of 6 Interceptors in an assault Cannon razorback to be quite useful for mowing down generic infantry, though strike squads (as we've been discussing) are quite good this edition.

So something like
>Voldus/Draigo (either one is autotake)
>paladin ancient, maybe apothecary
>at least one squad of Paladins, sticking 4+ancient+voldus in a stormraven is damn good
>maybe a dread, the doomglaive one is fucking sweet ruleswise but I recommend just putting the guns on a venerable, the FW model is awful
>10 terminators, though you can just as easily do Paladins instead.
>10-15 interceptors, good for late-game objectives any time.

>pair of razorbacks

>hell, psilencer purgation squads are hilariously cheap for bursting down the low-save MCs. (Looking at you daemons and nids)

The GK do mortal wounds though.
When I played against Deathwing I thought the knights were gonna stomp my entire army, because GK have always had trouble with stormshield terminators.

The problem is more that deathwing would have to eat a non-trivial shooting phase, especially with stuff like psilencers actually being pretty deadly to terminators when spammed.

Charge threat range is 6 + 2d6 + 1.

Grenade threat range is 6 + 6. If they have Infiltrate, they show up 9.0000001 away and get to sit there being cucked before they themselves are either charged or blasted at point-blank.

Don't forget that unlike other weapons, a unit can only throw 1 grenade a turn and only affect one unit. Reivers are cucked vs Tau/Supporting Fire.

For the same trouble, might as well sacrifice a Rhino/Razorback instead.

It's nice how you are trying to argue over points you have no control over, admitting you lost over all the other points. You can try to go off topic over and over again, but you're totally and utterly lost, and have lost each and every argument up to this point, not ever bringing up a single argument. On the other hand, I'm providing you answers to each of your attempts, which have gone unsuccessful. Your most articulate response up to this point has been "Bhahahahahah" which has no meaning.
