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.

So based on the leaks, it seems Emperor's Children are pretty much trash, being just above Word Bearers, and World Eaters giving Zerkers +1A and 3 fight phases should put them into the top tier of CSM.

>>54644693
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.

If I'm reading this correctly, to get the stratagem you need a "space marine" detachment, so presumably a mixed one doesn't count. But seems that if you meet the criteria for chapter tactics, you'll get the stratagems too.

Warlord traits just require the warlord to be a space marine, amazingly enough. Relics require your warlord to be a space marine (so I think a marine detachment in an army with an IG warlord, say, couldn't take a marine relic).

Alright hear me out. I really want to play Deathwatch because it looks really fun and x-com like to me but I don't really fuck with them. So I was thinking about homebrewing my chapter.
Since I already play Ordo Malleus Inquisition, I was thinking about how DW was founded by the Inquisition to fight Xenos and so they're really close.
Well, Koorland was pretty close to the Inq during the coup so I thought the Ordo Malleus might have gotten a chapter too, but instead of gathering starts from everywhere, they started from Imperial Fists geneseed.

I'd say that other anon doesn't see the value 170 for 90x S6 AP-1, 10x S5 AP0 attacks with only 10 models for some reason. This is on the charge so the 2 fights base +bonus fight stratagem all go before any other combatants. First strikers alternate in after the first charge.

You get a smoother result if you use an airbrush, but it's totally possible with a brush. If you want to keep the metal a bit shinier, substitute watered-down gemstone colours (Soulstone Blue and Waystone Green) for the glazes.

Nobody cares or wants to hear about this kind of dumb crap. Ever. The probability of you ever even having a conversation with another player about the lore of your custom chapter is low and the shit you came up with would just make them cringe anyway.

Yeah dude idk how to explain it and I swear to god that makes me look REALLY autistic but I can't play marines if they're not a chapter made up by me.

Yeah sure. You could actually do with more Autocannons. Maybe on the Melta dudes? You're also a bit short on punching for a dread army, a siege drill would be a good way to help your army's flexibility and be less WAAC about the Grav bombards at the same time.

Hello, person who clearly has never played a game of 8th edition before.

1) No, it would not, since most models likely to be affected by cover in the game still only have 1 Wound, so it would do fuck-all for them.

2) It in no way makes it harder to actually get your units to benefit from cover.

3) Fuck off, the cover bonus is very relevant when it applies. GETTING it to apply is the problem.

>The legion rule

Decent enough if kinda boring, good for digging out entrenched objective squatters. I have never seen anyone bring a building as part of a list, and with the IF/IW traits being known now if they're present in your local meta I doubt you will now.

>Relic

I'm dubious. 2+ armour is great for a jump pack lord, mounted lord, daemon prince or sorcerers, none of which really fit the IW theme, so you're really getting it to regen wounds on your warpsmith or terminator lord. At least its free unlike...

>Stratagem

You pay 1cp to get a 1/6 chance to ignore wounds for one unit for one phase, something the Iron Hands do on all their units every phase, and which a slaaneshi sorcerer can cast on one of their units and have it last till the end of the next psychic phase, but theirs is a 1/3 chance. Really kind of a let down.

>Warlord trait

The faction focus hints at CSM being better in close combat, whether that's an illusion to the DttFE rule or the fact that everyone can exchange their bolter for a chainsword (but not take on in addition like editions past) I don't know, which if true this could have some utility escorting big blobs of shooty and punchy CSM forward to storm enemy positions.

Overall kind of a disappointment. More disheartening is the complete omission of obliterators from the post, when last edition IW were the obliterator legion, with obliterators as troops who were better then everyone elses because of their (minor) durability boost and bonuses to breaking shit. So chances are the roll 3 dice guns are here to stay and GW marketing couldn't bring themselves to hype them up.

On the bright side IW players are probably happy, because now they have something to complain about.

What you listed for admech is minor fire support/melee, melee, melee and minor fire support/melee.

So you are missing big guns. How to supply them? Two options:

Scions (counts as skitarri guard)
Take normal troops plus command squads and especially the taurox prime with autocannons and the battlecannon. Provides mid range fire support with the others provide either decent AP or plasma/volleyguns.

Normal guard, but focused on fire support. Sentinals with lascannon/plasmacannon work well and keep in theme, devildogs and chem hounds also work well. Artillery is okay as well, as is bringing bullgryn (can also count as assault servitors or something)

Here's a rule question...

You have two melee weapons and want to attack with both. If the damage you cause with the first weapon causes enough wounds, and your opponent chooses to remove models closest to your attacker first such that there's nobody left within 1", do you still get to attack with the second weapon? Are all those fight phase attacks simultaneous?

Because Hive Tyrants are not only able to be focused down due to 12 wounds and having shit for toughness, but the Swarmlord can cast two psychic abilities AND use Hive Commander while having better melee viability and a 4++ that becomes Rowboat levels of hard to remove with TGuard, while the Swarmlord's less interesting cousins don't even have sprue options for their claws. T-Primes are not that great, but they can't be easily focused and are far cheaper.

Could station my Dunecrawler on a side platform with Icarus Array active, dot some servitors and Skitarii around the place and have my friend attack with his Dark Eldar skimmers, but I have no idea if doing water effects like pic related costs a bajillionty pounds or something. What is it, just molten resin poured in?I suppose I could just buy a sea battle mat, but those look considerably less cool.

TY. That stuff looks a tad expensive, but given that to have enough room on the board for a proper fight and to dock the Whalebird the platforms will have to be quite large I shouldn't need more than one lot.

Okay, we don't think they're bad because they have shitty stats for anything but Wounds or Toughness, we think they're bad because they're so goddamn mediocre and expensive in comparison to less mediocre options. If you ask ANY Tyranid player with two braincells to rub together, they will flat out tell you that that is, always has been, and will likely be the problem for Warriors until the end of time. They're a Jack of all trades, which makes them outclassed by literally every other troops choice besides Ripper Swarms. Devilgaunts? Far superior firepower and in greater synergy. Hormagaunts? Far better tarpitting and charging capability. Genestealers? Literally a better version of the Hormagaunt. They don't even have SYNAPSE of all things going for them, because you can take a Malanthrope for the same points and have a better benefit for it. They're just so damned mediocre, and it hurts to see them that way because the models are so damn cool and we'd all run them if they weren't so inefficient to field in every single installation of Warhammer barring SW:A.

Has anyone found there's a point in learning to paint where everything just starts going reasonably right at once? Previously I was stumbling around trying to paint Mars Skitarii badly because I didn't understand the ways of based Duncan or sprayed them with Leadbelcher, so I had to slowly do all the metal in one coat with a brush. THICC occurred.

Took a two-week break from painting until about a week ago, came up with a new colour scheme, bought a LB rattlecan and learned how to do passable basecoating, washes and edge highlights and all of a sudden decent tabletop standard was achieved. I always wanted to do a bunch of conversions, but felt that I would just ruin them with terrible paint afterwards, but I might actually start a couple now.

Well, there is a "viable" option for warriors: Max unit with barbed stranglers and whips and a prime in range to have a very tanky synapse unit in the center. It's under 250 points (for the unit) and you can soak up a lot of dmg and block most cc-units your enemy will throw at you. the barbed stranglers hit on 2+ against big units, so it's decent firepower.

It's nothing to brag about but it's actually better then gants in holding the line because there absolutelly are units that will murder 30 gants in one round but won't get through this unit without beeing crippled.

But to be honest I still prefer gants in front and genestealers to eat up the unit in a countercharge. More expensive but also much more versatile.

Oh and rippers are great for certain roles too. Wouldn't ever go for more then a single minimum unit but it was always very much worth it so far.

I do hand paint metallics that differ from the standard, but when the vast majority of a Sicarian squad's nooks and crannies can be dealt with with a leadbelcher spray and Nuln Oil wash instead of two hours messing about with a brush and possibly messing up the thinning somewhere I know which one I'm picking. I think I'll try a 50:50 split on my next Skittle box and see which I prefer for those, though, since they're less of a pain.

At least until somebody starts playing a decent cc-army around here and I have to cockblock him with all the whips.


Rippers are great as first turn objective grabbers, overwatch sponges for other units and generally at beeing annoying. Similar role to spore mines, except they don't do shit to the enemy except beeing annoying.
