One thing has been bugging me, since one of the most common homebrews is to make 40k "alternating activation" (Bolt Action 40k, etc).

How come GW still uses strict IGOUGO anyway, after seeing so many competitors out there? I mean, they made close combat a pseudo-alternate system but everything else is still clunky as fuck.

So what's the max negative Night Lords can realistically get on a unit now? -3?

So say, do 3 casualties. Have 2 units within 6" and maybe Raptors or something. So -6 to morale, most things are leadership 7-8. So...average around 2-3 extra casualties after morale?

Eh, not great.

Don't forget that the Iron Warriors lacked the balls to finish the job.

>The battle should have favoured the treacherous trench-fighters, but the Imperial Fists endured. They countered every ambush and fought their way out of every trap. Rogal Dorn was a colossus who personally turned back attack after attack. Ammunition expended, Brothers fought in half-flooded trenches with combat knives, giving and expecting no quarter. Eventually it became apparent that the Iron Warriors could not finish them. For all their skill and ferocity, the Iron Warriors lacked the faith to make the ultimate sacrifice that victory demanded. While they paused, the Ultramarines intervened; Guilliman had decided that Perturabo's destruction was not worth the loss of Rogal Dorn and had brought his Chapter to drive off the Iron Warriors.

Try to fit Butcher Cannons in for another -2Ld.

And depending if Night Lords must be Markless or not you can grab an Icon of Despair for another -1.

So last night I made a post debating what I should start with (WE, WB, EC, DE, or orks). Thanks for the replies. If the whole NPC thing is just a tg meme (idk, someone said it to me in the store), then I don't mind it much. I'm pretty sure I don't want to paint a hoard of orks, and I dont think I can afford FW world eaters.
The only thing keeping me from going WB over EC is that I don't know how they'll play yet, and I don't understand the concept of chaos undivided. How do they receive favor? Are some of their dudes all nurgle-ish while others are slaaneshi?

Guy who made that edit here: I might actually try that conversion when I have a little more free cash floating about.

The main thing it fixes is the over-wide stance making the legs look undersized and causing a weird double-shoulder effect with both square and round shoulders. It also makes the reference to the rogue trader dread more obvious.

I will admit it looks less like a boxy-dread, but on the other hand that might be a good thing in a way?

I think the main issue is that FW thought that people liked HH because it's a legitimately good ruleset, rather than is being popular because it was better than 7th. Now, when a better 40k ruleset has came along, people have dropped HH and gone back to 40k, and FW is left in the dust because they didn't understand what people actually wanted. What's real sad is seeing the people in /hhg/ who try to defend the decision to stay with 7th, or who say that 8th is only drawing people away right now "because it's new"

Andy Hoare is one of the main FW writers, and it shows. He is the guy that did 3.5 Witch Hunters after all. The HH and 7e FW books were all cool even after relative power levels (Ordnance Tyrant gunlines), but because they were extremely Your Dudes. Stuff like Corsairs being multiple feuding Coteries banded under the will of a maniacal Corsair Prince, who had a character-defining obsession, which would reflect in the army (s)he commanded?

Chaos Undivided is in theory worshipping the gods as a pantheon, drawing on all of their strengths without devoting yourself entirely to one ideal.

In the books, any WB that goes a bit too far is seen as damaged and deviating away from the word of Lorgar, which is a major no-no.

The EC ability is good but not as good as people hype it up to be, atleast it isnt useless like the IW one.

What is Poweful is their Shoot-Twice Stratagem on Big Units but its pretty predictable and only used like 1-2 times

But Shooty Armies wouldnt bother charging you anyway, Tyrannids have similar rules on certain Units. It is decent against full on Assault Armies like World-Eaters though as you can chill back and shoot them down with your better shooting and by the time they arrive crippled you get to hit first and finish them off.

I still believe that World-Eaters are the better melee Army in comparison to EC, especially if they get the retarded Traitor-legion trait back where they could almost guarantee a First turn charge. But the rules preview atleast makes me Happy having a EC Army instead of being the drooler legion compared to TS DG and WE

Shon'tu got set up as a huge BBEG only to get iced by some no name terminator. It's the Cult Legions that bring in the big bucks. People want bird wizards, sex machines, insane gladiators, and cancer marines. People think our battle cry is "The flesh is weak" half the time.

Bitter guys without any of the cool flashy bits of Chaos probably aren't a big seller.

I think because being entirely devoted to a single God doesn't necessarily make you fit the mould of what the cult units in the codex are.

Being a huge, favoured, devout Nurgle devotee doesn't make you a Plague Marine, for example. I recall reading somewhere that becoming a Plague Marine is a secret mainly kept within the Black Legion and the Death Guard.

Same with Khorne, you can be devout and axe crazy, but being a Berzerker requires specific surgeries etc.

That's how I see it, really. They have marines devoted to each God (Why they could take marks of Chaos) but don't take those final steps to cross in to true Cult marine status.

In the Word Bearers novels, Dark Disciple and Dark Creed, there's a marine who's very clearly on the path of Khorne, and his Apostle is totally cool with it as long as he doesn't go full Khorne and lose sight of the big picture.

Warmahordes invented a game term called Skornergy. It's where the game designers try to bludgeon you over the head with "this is synergy, hurr" where X unit gives bonus to Y unit, but the combos actually don't work in-game due to actual game mechanics.

As an example: Unit A gets speed bonus from being near unit B, and unit B gets bonus actions as friendly living units die. However, A is not living so B gets nothing, while both are slow melee-only units, so chasing the buff-combos ironically is a noob trap.

Certain formations in 7th had the same problem. The Demolition Claw in partocular was hilariously better if you ran the Rockgrinders empty, and gave the Acolytes their own transports.

Same guy from last thread who was asking questions about making a bike riding Chapter from last thread.

So I've taken the idea I had for one Chapter and split the fluff into two that would make them more coherent and less sporadic. The first is the bikers which I'm sticking a pin in for now just because I'm not looking to put that big of a hole in my wallet.

My other idea kind of focuses more on my idea for humanitarian marines. From a game play perspective, I want these guys to be the guys you send in when you need an objective held, if they're defending they are a boulder and everyone else is the poor motherfucker trying to move them. If they're attacking, I want them to get to where they need to be, drop them, and then watch as the enemy scrambles to upheave them. I guess Anti-siege would be the best way to describe it.

Obviously mechanically it won't work so perfectly, but I'm wondering what should I expect to work well for something like that. I'm imagining Dreadnoughts and other tougher units, with a lot of anti-infantry and vehicle destroyers, so maybe Thunder-fire Canons, Whirlwinds, Devastators and things like that. Would something like this be feasible on the table-top either from a tactics of a points perspective? I'm not looking for the best, just something that won't get shit slapped consistently.

As far as fluff goes I see them as either a standing force in a region of space where they basically drew their line in the proverbial sand and told anything that dared to cross it 'good fucking luck', or they go from place to place where threats like the Orks or the Tyrannids are threatening Imperial worlds and act as the dam to protect everyone behind them. I'm on the fence on where they come from, I like the idea of a Loyalist Successor to a Traitor Legion trying to repent, but I'm worried it seems too snowflakey.

I imagine a lot of Apostles become aligned, but just never make it far. I see Apostles firmly undivided, honouring whichever God behoves them during each situation and thereby serving as an example to the more single God inclined marines of his Host that just as he courts the Four, pays them their due respect and leads them to victory, so to does the host as a whole.

The Apostle is one man serving the four, but the individual marines of the host serve one, but together they serve them all. There's something respectful in that, being Undivided is difficult, especially when you have to go from God to God, kind of allowing your Marines to follow their own inclinations.

I run a pretty Terminator heavy IWs army (Sorry if it doesn't translate well, I don't know much about Loyalists). In my experience they've gone from somewhat bad to pretty alright. Combi-Bolters now get four shots at half range which can really wreck up infantry. Two wounds mean that you won't just lose your whole squad if you get unlucky. All power weapons are viable now, which is nice. Overall though the change to how AP works has aided us in my opinion. Everybody and their grandmother had AP2 in 7th, but now most of those weapons reduce Terminators to a 4+ instead of forcing them to use their 5++.

I played a game against Orks three or four days ago and the three things I took away were
1. Lightning Claw termies are scary as hell
2. Terminators are still not invincible, a squad of well armed Nobs can kill 200pts of termies before they can hit back
3. Plan your DS around what will be happening in two or three turns. Do not try and flank with Terminators. When you destroy that unit on the enemies left flank you then have to spend at least one turn walking back towards the real battle.

Am I overlooking something here?

I'm trying to get my Traitor guard back on track, but the points seems way off.

A cultist is 5 points per model. a Guardsman, with better armor and able to take orders are 4.

A Chaos Renegade Militia is 4 points, still worse armor then their Guardsmen count part with the stats of a Conscript that, for guard cost 3 points.

Then there is the Mutant rabble. the conscript counterpart, also 4 points, thats 50 points more for a full sqaud and still no way to give orders that makes the guard versions very lethal in large quantities.

Tactical Termies are not made for CC but for shooting. They can do CC but ut should be a ioftened up target that they can safely eliminate.

alright broskis, I am intending to put some lascannons in my vanilla SM backfield and bury them behind ablative bodies.

i would like your input on how to optimize it:
A. how many ablative bodies should I put on? most people choose a squad size of 5 but I am considering adding another body to make the process more arduous for the enemy and make them look for easier targets. does that make sense or is that a waste of points?
B. what do I give the Sarge? i would like to protect the squad in case of enemy units reach the backfield. or in case i need to push midfield midgame. i was thinking poweraxe and combi-plasma but that's expensive for each squad and might be a waste.

Actually pretty much:

Whistle goes, Angron leaps at whoever is closest screaming wildly, Perturabo lunges for Dorn because he detests that guy, Corax uses his ability to fade from all forms of sensory perception and vanishes, Magnus starts blowing people up with his ridiculous psychic powers, and everyone else teams up on Magnus because basic survival instincts.

Some random member of the group Magnus didn't kill before going down, probably Fulgrim, Angron, Russ, Sanguinius or Horus, comes out of the brawl battered and bruised, then faces down Vulkan at which point Corax reappears and shivs whoever was winning.

Give the sergeant nothing, if the enemy has reached your unit it's as good as dead. Now I say good as dead specifically because it will likely either actually die or will be tied up for a few turns regardless of what the sergeant has.

Don't throw in extra wounds. Lascannons should be out of range of basically all non-heavy weapons. You should be focused on destroying the threat of heavy weapons with faster and closer units. Keep a reserve of Assault Marines or those new Flying Marine things in order to force your enemy to either withdraw whatever heavy weapons he has to threaten your Devastators with or engage them in combat and destroy them.

some context: i have a set of deepstrikers who can bring the pain (GC devs + Kantor + terminators) but I need to soften up enemy mech before I come down. the backfield units have the dual purpose of doing either that and/or advancing midfield. combi-plasma might be useful in threatening advancing forces, particularly skimmers.

i agree that a full unit that reaches my backline means trouble but if the unit has been weakened when it arrives there (or by the first tactical squad), a power axe can make a difference.

that's why I am unsure whether to keep the sarge as cheap as possible or whether an upgrade might be worth it. (conversely, a combi-plasma means deploying as far forward as possible to cover the mdifield with it, exposing the unit potentially to more enemy fire)

it's really hard to tell for me if it's useful or not.

So what's the magic context here? Yesh, there's some post at the top of the chain whining about renegades, but it seemed the conversation had moved on to standard (unjustified) marine bashing. That's a thing conversations do.

it was just an example anon.

mixed dev squads are actually good now, was the point I was trying to make.

2 lascannon and 2 heavy bolter is a good setup, since you can choose what dies based on what you're fighting.

There is definitely paint that is as good as citadel, but if you not sure on the quality then don't risk it. You can get some awful looking models using cheap paints.

Both Imperial Fists and Iron Warriors get bonuses against buildings, but is there a Chapter that's actually good at defensive play and using fortifications ?

Don't really see it ? The Fists have a meh trait for it, but what do Iron Warriors have that buffs their fortifications ?

They are, but the way I play them isn't very strong and makes for really balanced and fun games. When the nerfbat comes the way I play will also be nerfed and I will end up being stomped. Good fun.

Their Exo Lords were pretty much made to be a third party Deathwatch. Not as good looking but has some cool options like the cloaked power armor snipers for your team with stalker bolters.
