Yeah, Primarchs are strong and I don't really pretend basic Skitarii are worth shit outside of screening the Important Things, but it's not like we're completely without options for dealing with them. Keep a double screen around a core of Dakkastelans and Dunecrawlers and try to unload enough firepower.

Also, we may well get better options in a little bit with the codex, or at least not have to pay quite so much for the ones we do have. In the meantime, I either try to shoot the rest of the army around the Primarch and tie him down or just focus fire the big bastard, and count it as a personal win if I do manage to kill him. It's not like losing an entire army of Admech would faze a Forge World much, they throw that many troops down to hold up a few dozen Marines for an hour in Eye of Medusa.

The big boy costs 110 points base. His mortar is free. His dark lance sponsons are 20 each. He also has some other shit for 12 points, so he's gonna be around 162 points.

A 4 lascannon predator is 190 points... and it has 1 less toughness.

Indeed, they got closer to Earth than Abaddon has since the Siege of Terra! The Orks are the embodiment of the senselessness and inescapable violence of the 41st Millennium. The T’au empire, on the other hand, has developed a high level of technology that is clearly evident in its battlesuits and war machines and utilises surprisingly advanced battlefield tactics considering its late arrival on the galactic stage. But the T’au also rely heavily on artificial intelligence, which was almost the undoing of Mankind many thousands of years earlier.

Tau wearing camo is cannon, although you probably want to stick to something fairly simple. The old default tau scheme was a kind of orange desert scheme with splinter camo on all the vehicles. Looked pretty great, but you kind of need an airbrush to pull it off really well.

Painting camo on infantry is a real bitch. I had some success doing a kind something like the US 'chocolate chip' pattern, but it took a while. Would have probably worked better with ochre armour.

I would avoid woodland schemes, which tend to look a bit weird with their aesthetic. Arctic, desert and blue 'urban' ones look cool though.

Be sure you're using a base paint, and you can be just a tad heavier with the paint than the water, try something like a 3-4 mix, somewhere in between 2-1 and 1-1.

Nidfag here, I bailed out for most of 7th but I'm liking most of the changes in 8th but i'm not sure what in my army is actually good or not. Are any of the following solid choices in 8th edition?

Termagants
Genestealers
Warriors
Venomthropes
Zoanthropes
Tyrant Guard
Hive Guard
Trygon
Carnifex
Broodlord

50:50 water to paint ratio is WAY to much. Thatll make your paint either too thin to properly apply or even worse make it flow into crevices and dry there to be just as bad as unthinned pain.

Google Wet-pallette (can be made easily with stuff you should have at home)

Youre aiming for a Milk-like consistency and want only a few drops of water, exact numbers depend on the paint and amount itself but youll get a feel for it. You can eyeball it by making the tip of your brush touch the water for every half-brush of paint you got out of the bottle.

Brush care is really important and I killed about 30 brushes before I had to force myself learning it

The important part is to have little paint on your brush and a napkin close to wipe off excess paint on your brush.

Takes a few Fuckups. Start with unimportant Models Cultists/PoxWalker´etc, and take your Time painting them and making sure you fixed all messups before moving on to the next step. Patience is Key here, most of the ugly parts of my Models are that because I was too lazy to clean up the previous step properly or too impatient to wait

Well, the Imperial Army did, and because we know how many Marines there are they probably did the majority of the actual work. Two million Marines is a miniscule number compared to the number of planets in the galaxy, two million soldiers is two Sommes and would hardly suffice for a decently industrialised solar system without help.

Which entails doing all the actual work, since most of the planets yielded pretty damn easily and then the IA had to actually clean the place up and integrate it into the Imperium. Marines and their "teleport or drop onto enemy, apply bolter and chainsword" could probably be replaced with fancy combat servitors in armour and have much the same effect.

Well how do Word Bearers fit in since they're not after booty and having dove parrots on their shoulders?

Literally, unironically, the worst part about these threads and this hobby are you guys.

It is free, save it and get fucked or ignore it and get fucked. Options pretty easy here.

You could have still posted it as one lump pdf. Don't act like a dipshit and then throw a tantrum when people call you out on it.

I was aware of fulgrim having wings, but unlike the other three, he won't just be a big humanoid with wings. He has four arms and a serpentinine lower half, which is enough to make him stand out.

>Termagants
Good with Tervigon, but still a better cheap troop than hormagaunts or rippers.
>Genestealers
Great
>Warriors
They don't die instantly anymore, but are hardly reliable. If you can make wings for them, Shrikes are better due to their long move
>Venomthropes
A nice way to dodge getting shot to shit when your opponent claims the initiative and you chose to deploy offensively, but the Malanthrope is a lot better. The Malanthrope is also forgeworld, though.
>Zoanthropes
No.
>Tyrant guard
A couple extra wounds for your swarmlord, but nothing more.
>Hive guard
Nice range and nice anti-armour capability.
>Trygon
Good, but should only be taken when you take Termagants as well.
>Carnifex
Took a hit, Dakkafex is dead, the only somewhat viable option is sticking a blob with double Scything talons next to OOE and hope they reach melee with the opponent before being shot dead.
>Broodlord
Take him if you have the points to spare, he's really expensive now, but the buffs he provides to the already fantastic genestealers is great.

You do realize John Carpenter's is the remake, right?

That the original is a 1950s black and white job where the Brundleflyification was just a fancy bug mask?

I kinda feel like the DI Lord of Contagion still has a bright future of Typhus proxying.
