Hey guys,

I'm looking for some advice.

Its been a month since I bought Dark Imperium, and I'm finally done building and painting my Deathguard models.

I want to try them out in some games, but I don't really know anyone.
As such, I am thinking of just going to the LGS and hoping to find people to play with. This will be the first time I will be going to the LGS other than when I went to pick up the dark imperium box, and I don't really know anyone at the store.

As such, I just want to ask for some basic etiquette advice.

1) Should I just bring my army to play on my first trip to the LGS? Or should I just go and introduce myself first?

2) I still have the loyalist side of the Dark Imperium set which I am honestly not too interested in playing. I was thinking of giving it away to my brother to try when he comes back, but I was also considering looking for someone to sell to. What would be the best way to go about doing this at a LGS? Would it even be appropriate?

3) I am brand new to the game, and quite frankly, not too familiar with the game even if I've tried to read the rulebook a few million times. Whats the best way to keep a game going smoothly while still trying to figure out the rules as I go?

4) I would like to expand my army if possible. I Know the Death Guard in Dark Imperium coems up to about 900'ish points. How would I find someone to talk to regarding what models I should look at buying next in order to buff the army up to about 1500 pts?

5) Anything else I should keep in mind?

>> No.54279000

Unfortunately I ended up tabling my buddy at the end of turn 4. Some good plays had my venerable dreadnought charge and wipe a squad of destroyers, while a combination of my Land Raider Crusader and the Deredeo wiped out nearly all of the left side of the board.

The rest of the game just had me sweeping from left to right, wiping out squads as I went. With the MVP of the game going to the LRC and my tartaros terminators. Being able to engage and destroy 3 targets simultaneously with just a single unit is hella great.

>> No.54279003

Maybe some more highlighting, but otherwise it looks fine to me.

>> No.54279056

Either call up the store and ask if someone wants a game, tell them you're new or just show up with your army and ask store owner to help you out
2) Just ask in store if anyone wants to buy it, alternatively ask the store owner if he knows anyone who wants to buy it, as long as it's on the sprue it should be fine
tell opponent you're new, they'll understand, or ask store owner and he might supervise the game and help you out
depends on what playstyle you want
do you have your own dice/measuring tape?

I believe it was "The Stormlord" or something like that. He ended up dying to a Reaper AC volley, with a nice follow-up of 5 relic blade attacks.

Honestly, if it looks good to you now, just go with it. Cameras are very different than seeing a mini in person. I learned long ago that working too long on a mini can do more harm than cutting things a little short. Most of us always feel it's not good enough, but you might think differently when you have the whole squad lined up on the table.

Is it worth taking Power Mauls over Power Swords on Death Company?
I was looking at the mathhammer and they just seem so outclasses when compared to Power Sword. They're better at taking out GEQ and light vehicles, of course, but not by a significant enough degree to warrant taking them over Power Swords (which are better at taking out both TEQ and MEQ infantry as well as medium and heavy vehicles).

Should I make 5 Power Sword guys and 5 Power Maul guys or should I just go all in with 10 Power Swords? Bits are no issue.

Well, Mauls do better at dishing out more D. At 2 over 1 they are better on guys with one or two attacks base to give them an advantage for having less attacks.

dark angels mostly, a few orks, a bit of used tau off ebay to strip and repaint, some sigmar even...

I haven't played a game in a very long time so I collect and paint whatever I feel like at this point. If I painted everything I'd probably have some 10000 points of mixed space marines, plus another 4000 or so chaos marines from when I was younger. I've thought about selling old stuff just to be rid of it, but it isn't worth enough to go through the effort. Collected over the course of 15 years or so.

tried that too. I have a vindicator still in the shrink, five rhinos that have been stripped and repainted a few times, two land raiders in different stages of completion, a razorback, two really old whirlwinds

That guy was full of shit, but Tartaros is the best loadout for all LC since they're the fastest. Cataphractii 4++ is really clutch for any unit, especially assault ones, but the move speed penalty is crippling.

Non-shooty tartaros are bad. The best loadouts for them are
> 1x Plasma Blaster+Grenade Harness on the sergeant
> 1x Reaper Autocannon
> 3x Combi-bolters.

If you want chainfists, they should both go on the Sergeant and your Heavy, so that leaves your 3 'squadies' as ablative wounds. Also works really great with a Land Raider to get them into a prominent location.
> Get into prominent location after your LR gives you an opening
> Shoot 3 completely different units with 3 different weapons. Combi-bolters+grenades at infantry, Reaper AC at an Elite/heavy, and Plasma Blaster at another Elite.
> Then charge a 4th unit and wipe it off the board.

You don't get this upsurd utility with Lightning claws, as you can only target and break a single unit.

Two to three battle barges. Fleet-born chapters can have more because they operate solely from their fleet and would thus expand the fleet with excess materiel rather than something like fortifying or improving their planet or home system. Carcharodons have at least one large ship per company with accompanying fleet since each company operates independently.

GW says "most chapters have two or three" battle barges, which are the largest class of marine ship.

Fuckers lose battle barges all the time too, plenty of stories of abandoned or lost battle barges being re-found as possessed ships or infested space hulks or what have you.

They also travel in the void and get void sickness due to lack of nearby gravitational giants, which would alter the flow of time. They also spend much of their youth and their lives in cryo sleep.

What pt-size matches do you think would lead to 1 or 1.5 hr long matches in 8th Edition?

I am looking to set up a tournament in my local area in the near future, and I would like to get some feedback from you guys regarding the size of matches. I am looking for each match to last 1-1.5hrs, perhaps 2 hours at absolute maximum.

Given this restriction, I think anything above 1.5k isn't realistic. Even 1.5k is probably pushing it in terms of size, and I was thinking either 1k flat, or 1.25k.

There's something called a Galleass of War in some of the Heresy material. It's basically a slightly larger battleship, but with less guns and more auxiliary space for, like you said, farms, stores, troop bays and whatever the fuck else you want to put in there. It's mostly used by the Mechanicum Ordo Reductor, who are nomadic Admech troubleshooters with even more superweapons and esoteric bullshit than Forge Worlds because their job is to solve Outside Context Problems for the Imperium. They can compensate for having less guns by making them more scary, but wouldn't the GoW suit your chapter too?

I agree with you here, but I have to think of the worst case scenario for tournaments. I fully suspect that there will be some faster players and some slower players, as well as people with large model counts or smaller model counts. I'm currently planning for a little bit of rest time in between matches, so maybe matches can stretch out to up to 2 hrs max. But I'd much prefer for matches to actually play to completion instead of cutting matches short.

yes. I'm factoring in complete noobs as well. Especially given that 8th ed is still relatively new.

Nothing would have happened, because planet-bound Void Shields powered by geothermal energy can pretty much withstand more firepower than any fleet of spaceships can throw at it.
For example, during Battle of Fenris, the Thousand Sons have huge, promethium filled space ships that are just the ammunition carriers for some sorcerours weapon array that fired down onto the Fang non-stop for days or even weeks. The void shields were perfectly capable of withstanding that.

So in conclusion, if you ever wonder again "why didn't they just nuke it from orbit", the answer is most likely voidshields.

25mm bases means that your opponent can have fewer models in base contact with your models, and you can have more of your models in base contact with theirs.

Also it makes disembarking a full 10 man tac squad out of a Rhino easier (you don't have to use all three access points and waste a turn getting everyone back into coherency).

Thanks guys! Question regarding custom models (asking in WIP as well)

How do you police height of the model. I make sure to put them on the correct size base.I get that model height and size matters due to true line of sight, and I don't want to look like I'm trying to pull anything by using models I sculpted. (2 Chaos spawn for 40$? Come on)

Is it just "get the go-ahead from your opponent before game starts and call it fair"? I don't really understand.

>> No.54280440

DEUS VULT obviously

Also known as loading everything in land raiders, driving everything fowards, disembark once close enough, then charge everything into the enemy.
There might also be some target priority involved, but that depends very much on what you play against.
Then there is also some finesse to properly playing a melee army in 8th (like charging from behind your land raiders, so the enemy can't see you and thus can't fire overwatch, and using two units to surround the unit you charge so that it can't fall back out of combat)

If you're new I doubt anyone is gonna give you any bullshit especially if its just casual games , as long as the base size is the same as what it comes with or larger its fine, and for size just try to keep no shorter than it would normally be. Bigger is fine though.

You just want to avoid the classic "modeling for advantage" shit that some people pull.

As long as it's roughly the same size or larger you're fine. As long as you're not obviously trying to game the system your opponents shouldn't care (unless they are sperglords).

Effectivly each save would be assigned and rolled individually, until models die.
