Did GW ever answer the question about how Space Marines can have any meaningful impact on a galactic scale? They've shown they understand an inkling of what that means with the Admech marching billions of Skitarii around the place, even if we're meant to take the "and then the squad killed 10000 Xenos" as anything but propaganda one million men minus casualties is stupid.

I mean, theoretically SM could change the course of a battle by drop-podding/teleporting into the enemys' high command and perforating anyone with a fancy hat. But then they'd immediately die.

The problem is that, while the lore about SM capabilities are wildly inconsistent, we do know approximately how tough ceramite is. We know that hotshot lasguns can crater it, we know that power weapons and plasma go through it like butter, and even krak grenades can pop them open. An elite force of supersoldiers 1,000 strong isn't going to last long when all it takes to kill one is a lucky heretic with a mass produced, standard issue anti-armor grenade.

Renegades should basically be equal to loyalist Space Marines, CSM should basically be Chosen —but a little cheaper in points/power than Chosen are now—and Chosen should be more expensive than they are now but be rapey as fuck, since Chosen are CSM that have done even more shit than regular CSM.

Their thing is not being afraid to die and mastery over souls with wierd ass robo-necromancy.

It's not pretending to be from the same clan that kills it for me, it's that I can't represent a real huge Waaagh! as it's described in the fluff with every clan fighting alongside each other.

This is what the concise Index fluff has to say:
>Entirely separate to the crude strata of Ork tribes are the six clans. In some ways, the clans are closer to spiritual groupings, while in others they resemble distinct nationalities or philosophies within Ork society. Of course, the Orks themselves see things far more simply; every Ork belongs to a clan, which means he prefers certain colours, has particular likes and dislikes, and is one hundred percent certain that his clan is the best and most important of the lot.
>Within a single tribe there may well be mobs of Orks from several different clans, all fighting together despite their sometimes violent rivalries. Such diversity actually benefits the Ork tribes immensely, for each clan’s Orks tend toward certain violent proclivities and specialisms that complement each other upon the field of battle.

>> No.54283791

'Cause battleships are just one dude and thus easy to hide, the other German Battleship grabbed some laser eye bois, ran with them over under cover of night without his support staff and blew the fuck out of all the Americans. Did get HIS Uber battalion destroyed, but a Battleship is worth way more than them and they killed most of the Allies too.


Yeah, pretty much this exactly. We know how to kill them, they can't hope to fight a single open battle against surely overwhelming numbers and their precision strikes could be performed by Scions or Thallax for a fraction of the cost.

Marines seem to be a morale boost rather than a serious fighting force, they certainly aren't worth the investment over an entire Guard regiment of good soldiers that you could have got out of all the kids you kill to make a Scout squad.


Tweaks I would like:

Cheaper HQ who buffs Skitarii, an Alpha Primus FnP boost bubble or something like 30k Axiarch Tactics.
Reroll One Canticles now provide a flat +1 To Hit, so as to avoid buff wastage and grant us our ENTIRE GIMMICK of good accuracy back.

Infiltrators get their +1A back.
Ironstriders gain Sniper if stationary/move less than 3" or something. Fluffy.
Vanguard guns either get +1S against targets they've already wounded, something similar to 30k Rad-Phage or proper wound spreading back.
Ranger guns gain their AP again or the Rend becomes -2/-3.
Maybe we could have our 6++ swapped for 6+ FnP? Unless someone is wasting a Lascannon on Skits we never use the invuln.

Transport that is a kind of flatbed Dunecrawler, like the Dust Tactics desert thing. Flimsy and has fuck all firepower (like 2 Phosphor Blasters or something) but carries 12 and lets Skitarii special weapons fire out the top.

Arquebi become 20pts instead of 25.
Kataphrons get a price cut and Torsion Cannon become D3 shots, Heavy Arc does mortal wounds to vehicles.
Kastelans go up 15ppm.

Mostly just restoring some of our old glory, I'll admit.

Actually, the current interaction between Termagants and Tervigons is pretty much how a good Tervigon/Termagant formation should have looked like. The main difference would be that the formation would have taxed you some nonsensical unit on top of those two. Like "you can only replace Termagants if they stand within 3.68" of the unit of Tyranid Warriors in this Formation."

The current synergy rules replace everything that made formations good and fun without any of the tax unit and free wargear bullshit that 7th was filled with.

As I said, tax units and free wargear. The king of that shit was the Space Marine Gladius, with FREE FUCKING TRANSPORTS. Nothing can justify that bullshit advantage. Similarly, the Harlequin formations that forced you to play shitty Starweaver simply so you were allowed to play their other units.

2+ Save is irrelevant when they have 1 wound and Mortal Wounds are dished out regularly. They're also expensive. Bastilladons are incredibly random and can do literally nothing every turn. Engine of the Gods is literally so unlikely to get the extra turn it's hilarious. Even with a Slann it's 4D6 and you drop one. You need 3 6's.

The problem is, as I said, their basic troops are weak as shit. Skinks are taken out with farts and Saurus Warriors are reliant completely on Mystic Shield but oops you can only cast it once per turn :^) The only way you're gonna beat Bloodbound is with a Carnosaur, Troglodon, Dread Saurian + Stardrake Banner wombo combo.

Yeah, that's especially good for getting a thread on track after a couple of threads have been drowned in shitposting
Maybe next thread we can talk about our expectations, hopes and plans for the next campaign, maybe throw in a little bit of "your dudes" stuff.
I for one always enjoy hearing about people's characters and such. Maybe they'll do for konor like they used to do in the really old batreps, where guys who did really well became canon? That'd be neat

A guy I know who does well runs 2 Land Raiders, 2 squads of Custodes inside, Greyfax, some Primaris Marines and some Conscripts with a Commissar.

Their Land Raiders are super tough to kill and put out really good damage.

One model, so no good for holding objectives, and the Vanquisher is objectively the worst Russ in the game, only forcing a save on enemy tanks one out of every 4 times it fires.

It is very and unambiguously clear that when AoS was being developed GW intended to drop Slaanesh out of the fantasy setting and that's very apprent from the way Slaanesh was written into a point of total irrelevance in the lore and not represented at all with model releases.

When you consider that AoS was dreamed up under the reigns of old, retarded, "we don't give a shit about what our customers think about our product" management who were interested exclusively with making their products as child friendly as possible dropping slaanesh is an obvious thing to do.

However at about the same time AoS was released GW changed management and began to give a shit about consumer feedback, which was filled with a ton of complaints about the incredibly apparent intent to remove slaanesh. Suddenly slaanesh characters start to be relevant in lore again.

There wasn't just a bullet with slaanesh's name on it. That bullet was chambered, the safety was off and the gun was pressed against Slaanesh's temple.

That bullet was dodged by the narrowest margin.

>Give a single reason why formations are a bad thing. I'll wait.

Because the developers don't bother to attempt any game balance at all. They just throw out another dlc formation that's either shit (to forge that narrative) or overpowered (to sell new things).

>It's fine in a balance sense so long as both armies are actually capable of fielding roughly the same amount of extra points in wargear and upgrades.
>The problems arise when you have an army that can field shitloads of extra points vs one that can't or where one has really shitty wargear options.

AKA The problem with formations. Some armies got game breaking good ones. Others got literal garbage.

>Also, you are talking about it like everyone ran that kind of shit outside of tournament. The only formations at my LGS were played by a Necron and KDK player and all it did was making their army playable
Oh, so because you didn't personally experience the horrors of bullshit formations, that makes them ok? Also:
