They're not getting sculpts for at least another 6 months, at least. Probably still over a year off. What you CAN do, though, is go and buy some of those Age of Sigmar berserkers and convert them with either the plastic berserkers or plastic CSM box. You can even buy some chainaxes from Forgeworld.

Seeing how there isn't a single codex out that isn't a Spece Marine variant I think most people talk out their ass.

They will be fine. There are multiple ways to nerf the OP stuff they have right now without making the unit useless.
And even if the stuff everybody spams will be nerfed to oblivion.. there is other good stuff within the guard. And you don't have to only play them as long as they are OP.

So /tg, what sphess mharine chapter is most cool for conversions/special snowflake/thematically possible AND cheeseable so that it's possible to WAAC tournaments?

Something like an all reivilers raven guard force but more inventive.

Lamenters have derpression, are yellow and thats about it. Loosing is what they do so while fluff wise are cool they're so-so

Raptors are reasonable but no special rules

Carcharadaon / Space Sharks - basically khorne in loyalist, but interesting paint schemes with the tattoos and stuff.

Minotaurs - sexiest toys and are metallic.

Death Spectres - no special rules, but are basiclaly nuke it from orbit marines

Mantis Gotos er warriors - Again no specific special rules =(

Did you miss the part where he snipes the commissar, thus melting the whole 150 point blob, in one round, while he's doing mortal wounds to anything else nearby and buffing his allies.

I mean even in a vacuum where you're somehow not benefitting from the force multiplication of his auras, that means he can kill 900 points of conscripts over 3 turns.

No, but you are. you can't shoot at the commissar because he's a CHARACTER, and if you're shooting at the scripts, it would be closest point on morty's base to the closest conscript, which the commissar wouldn't be in between.

Are you a retard? the line goes between the closest point on Mortarion's base and the closest model in the target unit. The cloest model has to be within 18" to be targeted, so the line between mortation and the model will never be greater than 18", or mortation can't target it.

If you hit with this weapon, draw a straight line between the closest point of Mortarion’s base and that of the closest model in the target unit. Make a single wound roll against the target unit and each unit the centre of the line passes over.

It says TARGET UNIT, so the unit that the pistol targeted.

Newbie here with a rules question. Guard Infantry squads can have 2 models form a Heavy Weapons Team. What is the cost of the HWT? Index says the Infantry squads costs 4 points per model (but it's not a Guardsman model); Heavy Weapons Squads cost 4 points per HWT which also implies 4 each but I can't find any documentation to support that I'd use the other value (either I missed it or it's common knowledge I'm unaware of). This seems counterintuitive to me because would also decrease the cost of the squad (before wargear, basically giving a 4 point discount).
Of course, this also would mean the Veteran HWT cost 6 points and the VHWT isn't listed separately at all. I know there are instances where models in a unit cost different amounts of points and would like clarity.
Separately, what is everyone's opinion on using a matte varnish? I can find almost nothing on it online or in painting guides but my mate at the FLGS swears by it.

Stygies and Lucius both do Electropriests way better.

Probably means you want a couple big blobs of priests, another of Dragoons and then a rather expensive gunline with Kastelans and such to keep the unit count down.

They have the shittiest dogma but 10/10 warlord trait and stratagem.

Let me lay some numbers on you you beep-boop fucker:

Get a Dominus near some Kataphron Destroyers. Get some other units in the bubble just so he's not a 135 point babysitter (with souped-up super-guns), because its the Kataphrons we're focusing on. Slap Plasma Culverins on those fuckers, then Overcharge them. Be a fucking Plasma Specialist. Heavy D6 S8 AP-3 D3 rerolling 1s to hit (3% chance to explode with each shot, that's the fucking price you pay. Go fire 33 shots and watch ONE kataphron beef it.) THREE count 'em 210 POINTS of Kataphron Destroyers will now kill a Predator in 1 turn of shooting. Every turn if you shill out CP for them, and even if you don't they will do horrible unkind fucking things to MEQs, TEQs, Primaris, Bikers, whatever the fuck you want. And four Kataphron Destroyers, 280 points, kill a Leman Russ in one volley with baseline average rolls. If you Overcharge and pop Plasma Specialists in the same turn your plasma culverins are functionally Strength 14 weapons. And these fuckers come in units of goddamn 12 so you cant even whine about not fielding a lot of plasma. 6 Destroyers with specialists and a nearby Dominus kill a fucking Knight in 1 turn. And I didnt even factor Phosphor Blasters or Cognis Flamers into any of this math.

So fuck you, go paint some servitors like traffic cones and use them to eat the entire enemy army.

DG Dex is in OP.
I've had some really good results with Gravaphrons. Probably because they don't take a huge amount of fire with things like Kastelans around and I fight a decent chunk of melee armies, but they'll carve through Marines and chunk down light and medium vehicles like Predators and Rhinos from weight of D3. They're obviously not Kastelan tier, but they're perfectly fine for two units at 1.5k IMO and will now be better thanks to Elimination Volley.

Also good for fixing with a Dominus, especially if your tax Enginseers are already working on the Dunecrawlers.

How would you equip your Blightlord Terminators? Base equipment is Balesword/Bubonic Axe (Power sword and Power axe with plague weapon) and combi-bolter.

You can swap any combi-bolter for a combi plasma, melta or flamer.

For every 5 guys in a unit, you can give a guy a blight launcher, plague spewer (Heavy flamer with plague weapon) or reaper autocannon

For every 5 guys one can swap their combi-bolter and balesword/bubonic axe for a mace of contagion.

Ryza warlord trait is "pick one weapon on your Warlord when you deploy your army. Increase it's Strength and Damage by 1", and it cant be used on a Relic

its not GREAT because the Dominus weaponry is all either low rate of fire, no AP, or both, so its a bit schizophrenic. But it can give your Volkite Blaster a bit more of a bite if you dont want to take the Ryza relic (a souped-up Volkite Blaster) to free you up for another relic (like the 3-shot AP-3 Phosphor Serpenta) or you can use it on your Omnissian Axe or something. It's not GREAT, but I'm just a big fan of Destroyers aesthetically and ran a bunch of numbers to verify that the Ryza strategem turns them from mildly threatening to one of the most point-efficient sources of anti-tank/elite infantry damage I know. So after them you just need to check enemy hordes and get support units and shit.

They're also nurgle daemons so benefit from things like nurgle daemon powers/aura effects - to do things like heal wounds at range or give them +1 strength... Then there's epidemius - who buffs the crap out of nurgle daemons when they manage to kill stuff - which these guys probably will.

Always prime your miniatures anon. Always.
Base paints lay a foundation for your layer paints. They are very opaque, and cover up your primer.

I used to run renegades and heretics like this last edition and I'll tell you, depending on the game and opponent - it's too slow to really get anything done.

In the renegades list, plague zombies and (stationary) artillery were about half what they cost under the current book, even without the add ons to the crawlers and such. I had tons of points left over for chimeras and chaos spawn (which were like 12 points a peice and faster than they are now).

All you've got that'll get out of your backfield are the blight drones and they've got standoff firepower anyway.

Maybe you'll get lucky and everything will happen on your side of the table, but that never worked out in my case so I just built up an offense knowing my side of the table was firmly controlled and the artillery would lay down some hurt, but never enough (and this was pie plates).

Do they really, or are you mistaking thematic differences with mechanical differences? I think if you examine the codices and indices, you'll find that the differences between a GEQ across the codexes are very slight, with the same being true for MEQ and TEQ. 8th edition seems to be going the way of homogenization in almost every aspect, which worries me. If the only differences between units are small numbers tweaks, then 8th edition will be even more solved and feature less diversity than 7th.

Both speed and heavy weapons are at a premium in a death guard army, but moreover - these guys seem to fit in to the strategy of slow blobs of infantry - who they can keep up with, provide an aura for as well as fire support while being able to shrug off (roughly 2/3rds) of incoming fire with their various saves.

For as much as the Putrid Choir was mentioned I was hoping they'd have some painted models in the codex. Those fuckin black armored plague marines/blightlords looked great though.

but i don't want to paint more pox walkers ;_;

painting 50 more pox walkers would literally kill me.

But how would i divide them up if i do take 90 of them.

Battlescribe exists.
Power rating is basically for beginners and fun, narrative games. Points are for a bit more advanced list building, they allow you to tweak units and maybe squeeze in another unit, for example.

4x 20 Walkers for a total of 80 seems a pretty fair amont.
Either go 3x20 or 4x20. Less is too few, more is overdoing it I think

If i don't break them into 6 units, i'll miss out on 6 CPs

New thread here

Power Rating is a new method of list building, meant to be more informal. Most people use points still. Power Rating works like this: for every unit in your army, tally up the power rating for that unit to get the power rating of your army. Power Rating isn't affected by wargear, so you can include as much or as little as you want.

Power Rating does have one rules consequences though, even for points games: some rules like summoning or stratagems work based on power rating.

Nice, thanks

each would have to lose 5 before they lost their attack bonus... which is likely on the first couple at least, but the bonus only applies to unit with "more than 10 models" so the 10s don't get the bonus to hit.

Quick question boys.
Can GK psychic power Vortex of Infinity also hurt my own dudes? Cause I've been playing it like that (since last edition it could hurt anybody)
Have I been doing it right?
Or have I been stupid not casting it when I reach close combat?

A frequent poster who's a huge Chaos fan and enjoys getting into protracted lore discussions on how Chaos is the best ever. Tends to rile people up due to his rather condescending tone and propensity to cherrypick lore that suits his narratives. Very big fan of Black Library writer Aaron Demski-Bowden for the same reason he has garnered some criticism: putting Chaos on a pretty big pedestal that leaves Imperium factions as villainous morons (save the handful of characters he likes, which includes Sigismund and very much does not include the Emperor) and Xenos factions as irrelevant footnotes.

Here's the non-retarded version. It was a matter of time before the Mortarion versus Draigo fight got retconned. No mention of writing names into hearts, you'll notice.

Or maybe we can actually remember than Codices are supposed to be propaganda for their faction and stop screeching at each other about muh canon and muh retcons, but I'm not holding my breath.

Is it for something specific?

You might wanna try and squeeze in a venom for the archon + incubi.

If you're up against tanks I'd maybe put a couple of those 5 man Kabs into a raider to free up a venom? I don't have the point costs to hand but it should still be within 500pts.

If you're expecting more infantry keep it as it is. You have 20 pts free (assuming you're playing at 500pts) so you may be able get a better weapon for your Archon (I can't remember that a stock Archon has desu).
