I guess. But nothing in the World Eater's fluff says there are no Sorc's in their bands. Now if DoW2 had a Black Templar colour chart for Librarians, sure.

Pretty sure that Librarians are often used by non-Librarian-liking-legions in order to find the best places to fight and shit. In Cult of the Warsmith book, the Iron Warriors use a pysker to find an item of Pertys and when they got it they fired it into the sun because lol imperfect. They didn't like the pysker, but they still used him. World Eaters aren't all Khorne Zerkers, it's possible that they captured a Pysker and force them to find the best fighting or to counter weakling sorcery.

>> No.54595343

You mean for the tactical reroll? You only reroll 1 dice

>> No.54595361

Apart from alternative poses, is there a reason to buy this kit over DI hellblasters from ebay? The major difference between the guns are some decorative bits. I would have expected the assault to have a shorter range and the heavy to have a beefier barrel. But no, one just has a cylinder under the muzzle and a cable to the backpack, and the other has some tactical light and a scope. And I thought the auto bolt rifle, bolt rifle and stalker bolt rifle were lazy design with the only real difference being the magazine.

>> No.54595362

Right, so can I just reroll 1 of the 2 dice, or do I absolutely have to reroll both since the FAQ states you have to reroll all applicable dice if you reroll.

>> No.54595368

Not all Zerkers are WE either. Otherwise the option to make like Mutilators World Eaters woukdn't exist.

It says "all models" so GW made a goof.

If you have an ability that says you can "re-roll charges" like Orks or Black Templars, you have to re-roll both.

If you use the Command Re-roll Stratagem for 1CP, you only re-roll 1, and CANNOT re-roll both.

Also you can't spend 2CP to use it twice in the same phase.

>> No.54595444

>World Eaters aren't all Khorne Zerkers
Even their units that aren't berzerkers are berzerkers, the Butcher's Nails are what turns a marine into a berzerker and the WEs universally have the nails.

>> No.54595450

My understand is by skal everyone had the butchers nails in their head. Then kharn does his things the legion breaks up into warbands.

In fact I think in adbs betrayer all the Librarians die. But Im not sure its been a while.

Well there are meant to be world eater psycho surgeons who still live. And give wannabe berzerkers the nails. I imagine their bed side manner is malpractical.

Besides all the fluff about how Khorne hates psykers and literally has an entire class of demon dedicated to hunting them? Or how being inducted into the WEs requires a member be implanted with the butcher's nails which cause either the psyker, any nearby battle brothers or both to be brainsploded if they use psychic powers?

Re-read what I said. World Eaters got smashed into different warbands by Kharn. It's entirely possible a warband got a pysker and forced them to join. And making them sit somewhere else and dispel magic is going to be useful. it's one of the most minor things in 40k, this isn't like trying to fluff justify female space marines.

Just realized I have to resize and pick out images. Also should of typed this up before hand.

So I'm hazey on pain meds + long day. This is a very vague report.

Chaos had:
>Typhus + shitloads of plague fucks
>Daemon prince (proxied with kastellan as his model was being stripped)
>1x pred with autocannon and lascannons
>3x bloat drones
>rhino with berzerkers
>other shit i can't remember

We had:
>Admech shit I don't know because i rarely see them
>tech priest dominus
>3x Ironstrider dragoon
>3x ironstrider ballistraius
>5 sicarian infiltrators
>two squads of electropriests

>Canoness with Eviscerator
>Inquisitor of Ordo Hereticus
>2x5 battle sister squads with 2 stormbolsters each
>1x5 battle sister squad with just bolters
>1x10 battlesister squad with 3 stormbolters
>2x Immolator with Twin Multi Meltas
>Sentinel Power Lifter
>Storm Troopers
>2x Sabre Platforms with Twin Heavy Stubbers
>Avenger Strike Fighter rocking lascannons

I had come prepared for a 500 point game. I ended up filling with odds-and-ends (sabres, etc). The Admech player was trying a meleecentric list.

The plan was gun line behind melee priests. Lifter would follow the Dragoons about. Stormtroopers air drop in behind his shit and gun down some plague marines. Avenger attack from side and gun for what-ever-needs-it.

Instead we were nearly tabled by turn 2... and this is the story of our colossal fuck up. Fuck up that I am blaming the Adeptus Mechanicus for, because the Emperor surely never abandoned my own. Not mad at him. Was a fun game... just learned a LOT of hard lessons. Any shit-talk is purely in-character.

Avenger in the bottom so I could orbit safely and not be shot on his turn one. It is off the stand to avoid a fall due to uneven terrain.

This is where we fucked up. Hard.

The idea was the Admech Melee Wall would be in front of bolters and immolators. That idea did not work out. We fucked up by not deploying further back because we didn't expect him to cover ground quickly....

Big fucking mistake. The CP order for chaos is assault after advance. His Berzerkers were out, advancing, and charging into the Electro Priests TURN FUCKING ONE. Not like he had a huge distance to cover but GOD WE FUCKED UP.

The Blight Drones were HOT on his ass.

By the end of our enemy's phases we were really fucked up. Most the Admech walkers were dead to ranged shooting (Predator) and bad dice rolls.

There's nothing stopping you from saying the guy in the Dreadknight model is a Grand Master.

There ARE things stopping you from saying a Reaver is an Archon, because Archons have different gear options.

GW IS removing all unit entries from Codexes that don't have models, sometimes they just allow existing models to now have multiple unit entries, like Purestrain Genestealers and Hive Fleet Genestealers, or this newest example of a Dreadknight or Grand Master in Dreadknight.

Don't expect them to keep around something like a Warboss on a Bike without a plastic GW model.

It's a unit with a 6+ save and 24" range. So it needs some kind of protection to not get absolutely smashed by anything that glances at. Lootas can get away with minimal protecting because of 48" range, so they're not exposed to many threats. But Flash Gitz can and will just get mown down by bolter fire.

So you need protection for them, and that means a transport, because the short range also means you need to move them around. But the only option is a Battlewagon, which then has to forego an 'Ard Case to let the Gitz shoot out of it, which means your "protection" is a T7, 4+ save vehicle. That's extremely easy to pop for most armies in the game, and once they're outside, Gitz have the survivability of wet noodles.

The icing on the cake is that the short range on Snazzguns means Gitz have to keep moving to keep enemies in range, but they have Heavy weapons. This might have almost made sense if the Battlewagon's Mobile Fortress rule affected passengers, but it doesn't. So you're left with an expensive, fragile unit that needs a transport that is also expensive and fragile, and is most of the time hitting on 5's.

That's even more reason to believe he won't be in the Codex, they put things in the index for people who had old legacy models for them.

So, here's a little question. It's actually for a game of dark heresy but it tends to be a bit dead over in that general.
If an orthodox tech-priest encountered equipment (weapons, armour, technology in general) that has been used by heretics (or even hereteks), but it's no more blasphemed than 'they scratched chaos stars into it and stuff', what would they do with it? Just destroy it all? Reconsecrate it?
What about if it was something originally pretty serious (omnissian axe, for instance) but it had been heavily defaced and blasphemed? Or if it was something fairly regular like a chainsword or something but it was being used by something extra-heretical like a daemon?

>> No.54597151

Some short story. Salamanders come to some ruins that the BA are in. They have a chat and boom daemons invade due to something. The daemons are killed but the BA get hit by the Red Thirst and they turn on the injured BA. They attack Tu'shan and his bodyguards, Tu'shan and co refuse to strike back and resort to parrying and shield blocking but get forced back, Dante then forces in (I think he had blood around his mouth which is contradicted by the book Dante) and the other BA's cancel and part. Tu'shan tries to get Dante to come to sense and Dante attacks Tu'shan and basically overpowers him and the bodyguards. Tu'shan says something and Dante returns to normality and as soon as he did the others returned as well.

Dante apologises and says BA hide some dark shit he shouldn't see and nobody could know. Tu'shan says that makes them all the better for fighting the foes of the Imperium and the Salamanders have dark secrets and shame (which is that 50% of their chapter went Renegade and fucked up Nocturne. They were CSM group called Dragon Warriors). Tu'shan and his guys basically agree never to speak of it and just assume it was Daemon related anyway.

The Aux. Launcher is weird. It's basically a combi-grenade launcher, except only one model per unit can fire it (since it still counts as throwing a grenade), you can't fire the bolter at the same time (like with other combi-weapons) and it apparently uses regular hand grenades as ammo, rather than having its own stats (like other grenade launchers).

Why exactly was this made instead of, I dunno, giving the unit 1 combi-weapon per 5 or something? Give the sergeant one as well. 10 Intercessors with 3 combi-weapons might have been interesting.

I think it did, because if Dante DID drink from a few BA then it's retconned by the book Dante which says he didn't drink from a living being after some event where he murdered civilians and drank from them after saving them from CSM. Of course he ends up drinking from his servant who slits his wrists so Dante can drink because Dante was looking ill and the blood would have really helped him perform better, the old guy says it's the last gift he can give and is gonna die anyway soon, so better Dante has strength for the Baal invasion than not. But it's a good book anyway.

If you go on Horus Heresy Ally chart, they're the most loved chapter, followed by Luna Wolves/Sons of Horus. Blood Angels aren't hated by anybody, but they're only loved by Salamanders, Ultramarines and Imperial Fists. Surprisingly, really, since Sanguinius stood up for Magnus and literally formed the Librarius to try and let Magnus keep his shit going.

Deathmark tactic.

Couldn't you set up your infantry to leave enough space for a death mark unit to port in, inside of another of your units?

The idea being that someone Ddeep strikes something for a charge.

You drop your deathmark unit inside the other target unit, not only do you get to shoot, but they would also have to multi charge the unit and the deathmark, giving for more shots.

People who want to support the hobby? Yes, they're entirely too expensive, but if we just pirate everything then the company doesn't make money, which means they start cutting costs and raising prices - neither of which are good for the consumer, especially in a luxury industry like miniatures/wargaming is.

I'm not gonna pretend I don't pirate the ever-living shit out of stuff, but I have a personal rule of buying the physical book (not E-Books, fuck those forever and always) that contains whatever models I have on the table.

That's understandable, I get that. It takes people a while to catch up to fluff usually - I'm sure the events of Gather Storm(s) will become "common knowledge" by the end of the year for most people.

The problem is when you don't know extremely basic stuff that is crucial to understanding the 40K universe, like what the GODDAMN Horus Heresy is.

I mean I've bought every IA from Vraks and on plus the Badab War pieces. Now I have Inferno and the red books too.

I bought the Knights, Deathwatch, and Marine codex from last edition and they felt like a massive ripoff with their content in comparison to the FW books. I could understand a $25-30 range but beyond that is absolutely absurd now.

I'm also the same. I pirated the core rulebook and a few extra indexes, but I still bought a rulebook and the index I actually will use for now. Books are a just nice to have around, and anyone who plays anything on /tg/ knows why most game books hover around the $50 mark.

That's fair. I can't tell you how to spend your money.

I just buy the books for everything that I put models on the table for. Part of it is the financial support - never forget that ultimately GW needs to make money, and if you're not buying stuff then they're not making money - but it's also really useful to be able to show your opponent in the physical book the unit entries for the stuff you're using, and allow them to view it at their leisure from an official source.

IA:13 I also bought because I liked the book itself when I read the pirated scans. I appreciated the time and effort that went into creating the book - the artwork was really good, as were the fluff behind everything - and wanted to support the team that did it by purchasing their product. As somebody who does freelance writing, it's an extremely satisfying feeling to know that somebody liked your work, and the ultimate way to show that is to pay fair value for it.

>> No.54598462

I buy physicals of all books as I like physicals, I only ever download when I need to reference/crop a picture for anons on /tg/.

Good binding, decent paper and full color. Shit costs money. Game books have to be durable as shit. I'm using a 1st ed. D&D PHB as a mouse pad right now, shit is as sturdy as the day it was printed. If you can't pay a fair price for quality, I assume you don't buy ANY game books.
