Not really? GW had done absolutely nothing with them.

I know what you mean, I just know my distopias really well.
And my main point is I want it to be justified, or at least mostly. Like the inquisition is for the Imperials.

Only it's message is more hopeful and progressive. Also I want to keep the whole caste system vibe, and everyone being happy in their place. Actually a bit closer to Brave New World in that sense.
So bit of communism, a bit of ancient chaste system, a bit of Brave New World.

Also I kinda like their mac-book future aschetic. Only I kinda like to push it. Like overly smooth and clean, to the point it doesn't quite feel right. Until things start getting broken and dirty.

It's not that they're specifically focusing on marines, they're following a pattern:

Vanilla Space Marines are almost always first in a new edition (6th and 7th were weird anomalies).

CSM are the oldest book in need of an update.

GK are one of the next oldest books in need of an update.

Death Guard are the next release in the Primarch schedule which is interwoven with the normal release schedule.

After that it will move on to the next oldest book in need of an update, which is Chaos Daemons... unless they split those into separate books for each of the 4 gods, which they are doing with AoS.

Then Tyranids.

Thoughts on making a Primaris Sky Sentinels chapter?

Sky Sentinels are described in the BRB as having been destroyed during the Dark Imperium story progression by Magnus and the Thousand Sons. However, this period of time was also marked by poor communication and backlogs. Maybe some Primaris were assigned as Sky Sentinels to relieve and aid this current chapter, only to arrive to see them wiped out.

Since they're adding entirely new factions and the 'FAQ/Errata' was changing things that clearly were not errata there is a 0% chance that rebalancing will not occur in the codexes.

Every codex should have extra entries detailing what the stats and cost of their vehicles being looted by Orks should be. Obviously it needs to be included in each new codex, otherwise there would be vehicles released after the Ork codex comes out that wouldn't be covered.

Just speculation but I think with GW moving the plot towards focusing more on the Imperium vs Chaos conflict this edition we're going to start seeing a lot more Chaos-ified versions of other factions pop up with their own codexes.

Dark Mechanicum may be the start, but I'll bet we'll finally get a non-Forge World Renegades Codex, too. Maybe even Chaos Eldar from the Crone Worlds will get a book.

The macharius vulcan seems extremely busted to me. The way the math works out, it outperforms any other variant in all areas i've thought of, at least according to the math (assuming you sit still to get heavy 30). It tends to keep up with the baneblade in marine-killing ability and damages larger things just as well for the points cost.

As far as i can tell, the leman russ conquerer is a similar case, it seems like a direct upgrade from the battle cannon russ, only for ~20pts cheaper, at the cost of 2ft range (but who gives a shit, 4ft is plenty).

Modifiers are batshit nuts, one of the biggest head-scratchers I've seen from GW in a long time. For example, a plasmagun is more likely to overheat at night, thanks to modifiers.

If you are trying to fire a plasma gun and can't see your fingers, you are more likely to blow yourself up.

Shira is one of my favorite lines just for all-around fluff.

Tip#1 of character survivability:
Conscripts up front

Infantry Squad w/ heavy weapon in rear


It's called the commisandwhich and can be further boosted by putting a Vehicle in front, the conscripts now in two smaller blobs on the left-front and right-front, and the infantry squad in the rear.

Of course, that's if your taking an assassin. Normal armies dictate you just place the entire army 9" or less away from the table edge, which in gunline guard was already the plan.

>they literally don't have shit except for dark apostles

Except they have a fuckload of sorcerers and warp-users in their ranks, as utilizing the Warp is considered a sign of piety and personal power?

The only thing Word Bearers truly lack are Cult Troops, but even still many Word Bearers end up dedicated to a specific Chaos God (though this does prevent them from moving up in the ranks of the Legion and carries a heavy stigma). Many Word Bearers cannot help but be marked by the Chaos Gods in some way, though they are expected to always work within the schemes of the Legion and not fall completely to their baser instincts and become Cult Troops.

The watchword of the Word Bearers is controlled fanaticism and the enrichment of humanity through Chaos. Becoming Cult Troops means falling to your deeper impulses and lacking in willpower, which means you're considered a shitty Word Bearer (and therefore marked for death).

I think it defeats some of the enjoyment of BA for me. It's implied, though not stated, that Baal was the first place saved by Girlyman because so many chapters were gathered there. Plus implying that GW is going back to the original peril to Baal which was invasion by Khorne, rather than Nids.

So Cawl knows about this and goes 'oh it's acceptable'. Red Thirst, for BA, is a shame but also a boon. They use it in extreme circumstances to defeat their enemies. If Primaris Marines don't have it, they're just like everybody else.

Primaris marines aren't subject to those mutations because they're basically made from fresh geneseed. The geneseed regular marines use is older, and over the years has mutated.

Some of those are alright. The skull symbols are universal, since that's the codex symbol for Commanders. Other things like the trim are nice to have.

There's a "Raptors" audiodrama by Gav Thorpe, but it's about the 30k Raptors. It's still like 9/10, good shit. As far as audiodramas go, it has a simple story, but god-tier atmosphere and acting.

There's also Deliverance Lost, which details the origins of the Raptors.

Unlikely. The orca is like the least usefull unit ever, and 99% of Tau players are WAACfags that won't even spend a dime on a model that isn't OP as fuck. So demand would most likely be so low that even chinaman wouldn't bother with the effort of recasting it.

Heroic Sacrifice says the model is allowed to pile in and attack. Meaning not one bonus attack, but basically another full close combat activation, which means all relevant rules are in effect.

>Purge Soul : Can I use this to slay tanks?
It does D6 mortal wounds at a time if you're within 3''. Depends if you think that is enough to kill a tank in time or not.
>Narthecium : Can this be used from inside a vehicle as long as it is within range?
>Teleport Strike : Can this be done from inside a vehicle?

Neat, they're essentially assault marines with a terminator stat line. Seem really strong for assault marine armies like GK and BA.

Too bad GK don't get primaris for the buffs, oh well, shock grenades for no overwatch is gonna be great.

And half the move value. For now I'd rather use actual assault marines, because without a transport option or a foward deployment/deep strike ability they're never gonna get close enough to charge. Which also means they are waaay to slow to be in a position to use their grenades when the more competent melee units want to charge.

Besides, with not needing line of sight in order to charge, if you're really scared of Overwatch you can just charge from behind one of your own Rhinos. Enemy unit can't see you, so they're unable to shoot at you.

Do you think we'll get a single Aeldari codex or will they split it up into Craftworlders, Ynnari, Harlequins, and Drukhari again? I only play Craftworlders/Ynnari but I wouldn't mind paying a bit more for the book if it meant getting into other subfactions was easier.

Well with Chaos marines also getting seperate codexes for Death Guard and Thousand Sons, it seems most likely that every faction and the vast majority of sub-factions are gonna get their own codex at some point.

>Another view: Not much more durable than a Defiler, and you could have 2 Defilers for his cost. Outside a Thousand Sons list (why?) not worth it. Surround him with Scarab Terminators or Rubric Marines though, and he's a force multiplier that's broken as shit. Makes a great Phalanx which goes with their theme well, on top of being strong.

Would you field two defies instead of Magnus The Red, anons?

Top fucking kek. Who is that from ? Sounds like somebody who has not even read the rules. Like, it should be common knowledge that Magnus' Smite alone is OP as fuck. He's a one man killing machine, having him sit between Thousand Sons units as a force multiplier is a waste of points.
