So Hellblasters are now super OP and better than vet squads and devs. Intercessors are better than tacticals. Aggressors are nuts and better than Terminators. Centurions were nerfed.

Here's the balance: You get ONE. Just ONE. 1. If you want more, you pay Command Points for them. And the ones in the Space Marine Codex range from niche trash (Burning Blade) to merely good (Shield Eternal, Primarch's Wrath). There's nothing remotely game-breaking in there.

Yeah, there were some combi-plas suicide units, but those were expensive suicide units. The people who relied on those were desperate or retarded.

A guy is selling his Blood Angels army and I'm pretty interested. Can TG help me decide if it's a good buy?

I like the brown/green army color of the tanks and bikes, but could I easily repaint those to make them more bloody?
How good would this army be in 8th edition? Do the BA have good rules?
Are those dreadnaughts safe to paint? Looks like the primer is cracked but I can't tell.

- a couple of pigments

You can toss them into rooms, you can lob them into trenches, at vehicles and even just at dudes standing out in the open. But none of those "ignore cover." First thing we were taught about grenades was to take cover. Why would you take cover if they ignore cover? Even a shallow ditch can save you, unless the grenade is in the ditch with you. Just like a shallow ditch can save you from incoming fire, unless the enemy shooting you is in the ditch with you. Or standing by the side of the ditch, shooting into it. A grenade shouldn't ignore cover anymore than any other explosive ordnance.

the confusion here is that the anon you were talking to remembered grenades NEGATING cover for the purposes of assault. You didn't used to be able to throw frag grenades, instead, they caused assault to resolve at normal initiative even when charging units in cover. If you didn't have grenades, you fought at initiative 1. I'm pretty sure that's what he misremembered into ignoring cover.

I mean, it depends a lot on what you are playing and playing against but for me it seemed difficult to ignore both cover and armour, so you used to be able to rely on one of them. getting 4+ cover from ruins is preatty good compared to not getting any save if you were being shot at with plasma.

$: seems like a great deal , go for it
€ : meeeeeh most of them are painted and that usually means atleast a 50% price drop from nib, maybe wait and try to haggle unless you really specifically want this, keep in mind ebay is a cesspit , facebook groups are where the deals are at , the tools are probably amping up the price a bit , if you don't need them se if he'll drop em for 50€ or something

Played one yesterday. Was supposed to be the first of three games in the FLGS' monthly tournament, but honestly after the first one I just felt so demoralized that I didn't play the other two.

My Orks played against a Primaris force lead by Gulliman. I had some good luck early on; my Kustom Mega Kannons were worth their weight in gold. I managed to Da Jump a 30 strong Boyz mob right into the face of an Intercessor squad then pulled off the charge too. My Tankbustas smashed two squads of Inceptors apart too, so things were going well.

Then everything started to fall apart. My 30 strong mob that had charged dragged down 6 Intercessors, but morale buffs and rerolls kept them in the fight. Then next turn they fell back and filled me with dakka thanks to Ultramarine chapter tactics, whilst the remaining Inceptors put out a revolting amount of shooting. Rerolling 1's on one side of the board was bad enough, but then the guys on the other side with Gulliman nearby started up. I was utterly gobsmacked at how powerful Gulliman was. Giving everything nearby rerolls to all failed hits and wounds? My whole right flank just fell apart.

During my next turn I used my Mek Gunz and Tankbustas to bring down the remaining Inceptors, only for each of them to successfully roll a 4+ and get a free round of shooting. I lost 16 Boyz to those guys dying. During my turn. I had two reduced units left on the left to charge in, and both promptly failed their charges.

We both checked the rules as we were playing. No idea what we could have been getting wrong since it was all pretty clear in the book. Gulliman gave all nearby Ultramarines rerolls to wound and hit. His Ancient gave +1 Leadership (stacking with +1 from Ultramarines chapter tactic) and whenever nearby models died, let them roll a 4+ to get a free shooting attack.

Last I remember, everyone remains salty about how this all went down the last time, where Chaos won on the ground, but Imps won BFG, and the Xenos (again) were treated as unimportant NPCs, but the GW just ignored all of that and pretended it didn't happen (supposedly because one side or the other was buttblasted about the results, depending on who you ask.)
So I don't know what people are expecting. All this is going to decide is the fate of a couple of systems in Ultramar, which doesn't really mean much. Plus, trying to read their website isn't helping, unless all three 'regions' have the same Imp/Chaos ratio, because clicking on a given region doesn't change the little chart at all from what it shows at the 'world' level.

But in all seriousness, it's not nearly as bad as your making it out to be. Praxima skyport is the place where chaos has the greatest hold, and even that is about 42/58 in favor of the imperium of man.
I also suspect that if chaos ever gets a strong foothold anywhere, xenos support in that area will turn against them, since most xenos players seem to be in the side of "screw over the winner" rather than supporting chaos or the imperium

I was at my local shop putzing around with my sternguard vets, and another regular popped in to pick up his pre-ordered codex. He peeled it out of its casing and then flipped it open to discover there was only one page devoted to Iron Hands, and still no special characters.

Just because EC was bad doesn't mean that a proper 40k planetside would at all kill the tabletop.
The tabletop's appeal is completely different from that of a planetside clone, it's about the hobby, the painting, converting, creating fluff, playing the game with friends, controlling vast armies and massive warmachines, it's about your dudes.
People who play 40k for the rules (because I assume at least one must exist) won't be fulfilled by a shooter, the people who are into the hobby side couldn't give a ratsass about some vidya. The only people 40k would lose to a planetside clone is fluff only fags, and even then that's doubtful because there are a fuckton of warhammer video games, including some really good ones, and none of them killed 40k

In theory, that goes to his argument that they should be going after higher-tier companies to make games for their license, the kind that are (in theory) less susceptible to that kind of problem. Of course, I know jack shit about the vidya industry, so that kind of crap might just be a constant factor at every level there, in which case, it would certainly explain why licensed games are such a crapshoot.

None of the said video games have the same addiction potential as a proper mmo. Games like deathwing are good but lose their replay value really fast.

And an MMO doesn't have attributes that the tabletop of 40k has that gives it appeal. Like I said, only people who play the game because of the fluff and nothing else would give up 40k en masse, most everyone else wouldn't get what they want out of any vidya

Instead MP is basically a flavourless trudge towards the objective with little tension because you can see all genestrealers in the vicinity on the radar with 100% accuracy.

Maybe a single unit of them is okay. I'll have to try them in game. Basically for the same points as 10 Scouts you get 5 Primaris Marines with better armour save and same amount of Wounds, with better range/AP guns. But if you're just holding backfield objectives you wouldn't take 10 scouts, you would take 5. So I guess it's a question of whether it's worth it to take 110 points that can contribute some amount of firepower or 55 points that will do the same job but probably not shoot anything and are easier to kill/beat in CC.

Non-whites don't even exist/have established communities in the overwhelming majority of white areas. The cultural melting pot concept only exists in major metropolitan areas.

This isn't limited to whites either its for all minorities. Whites don't exist in Saharan Africa or most Asian cities either. Majorities will always be catered to, and marines are the """privileged""" majority of 40K.

Not even an SJW, it's just facts. If you think minorities are catered to, just look at how the criminal justice system works. Juries are scared of blacks and whites are always acquitted. There is no special treatment unless it's a white guy, and 90% of niggers don't trust the system while 90% of whites do. Whites think racism and privilege don't exist in today's world.

Provides the power to the POWER armour? It's got a generator of some sort. I've seen descriptions range from atomic stacks to a sub-atomic microfusion generator. Whatever it is, it clearly needs protection from, since the Anvilus pattern is noted to have less shielding.

The exhausts for the reactor are actually the vents at the bottom. The bit vents at the top are not for exhaust purposes, but are jets, mainly for maneuvering in low gravity environment. In the old days the backpack was referred to as a jetpack or a flight pack and art featured Marines descending from the skies on them (and Guard troopers on somewhat similar packs). Currently the Primaris Reivers use the exhausts of their backpacks to deep strike onto the table, so the idea still exists on some levels.

The pack also houses external life support systems and other such functions. There's even a solar panel on top, probably for recharging batteries when possible.
