So we can track the codexes releases by the accompanying BL novels so lets check it out.


October has "Ghost Warrior". An Eldar novel. (Eldar codex).
November has Devastation of Baal. A Tyranid invasion novel. (Tyranids codex).

Re-asking from last thread at recommendation of another anon.

So how does this sound for a list?

1x Celestine and her sister

2x Astropath with the bonus cover and -1 to hit respectively - to use on the crusader squad

3x Custodes with sword and board, one squad with Vexella

4x Inquisitor, all with storm bolters and as psykers.

1x Greyfax

1x Crusader squad at max strength

Got some questions that I would like cleared up since some people at my LFGS has been feeding me questionable bullshit.

Just bought Berzerkers and played about 3 games with them.

1. How do you resolve a unit of 20's attacks in the fight phase? As long as a single model is touching base with the charged unit, the entire unit fights?

2. Can you consolidate into an enemy and immediately fight again with your second fight phase / stratagem?

3. If I consolidate 1" within an enemy, during my opponent's turn, he / she is unable to shoot me unless they're using pistols?

>> No.55894905

>cannot claim Chaos is evil without accusing sentient life of being evil as well
That's an obvious fact, though. Evil can only come from sentient beings. However not all sentients are 100% evil, while all Chaos is 100% evil. There are good and neutral Warp entities, such as the Eldar gods, who are not of Chaos- Chaos is explicitly the Big Four Bastards and their shards.

He rebelled for many reasons. One of them being what happened in Arthas Molech.

It's obvious that with the massive integration of the Humans into the Tau empire they will soon be assigned into castes fully so they can better serve the Greater Good. Why fight it? If you read the fluff it's obvious that Humans prefer the seed of Xenos if ever given the option to upgrade over their own stock.

The first 40k novel I read was the last one from that series, lent by a friend (CSM - apparently it also features Traitor Guard). I thought it was fine (I loved the Daemon Rhinos) but that the end was lacking. Thinking about it again, it seems like yet another slog through a series of encounters until the final boss fight, not to mention the weird Dark Eldar camaraderie.

Are the shock prows worth taking? Their only advantage is multiple damage right? So they're only useful against vehicles/monsters/characters, which you're very unlikely to hurt due to high toughess and armour/invulnerable saves combined with only getting the one attack with it. Most of the time the raider will be charging squares of single wound infantry anyway to absorb their overwatch.

both are good, the question you have to ask yourself is which one will fit into your current list.
If your current list has a couple of infantry squads screening the bane wolf and leman russ with some ogryns mixed in there, lascannon teams and ratlings at the back the choice if yours, though the basilisk is alot cheaper and can be added without a large change to your list.
it's your choice, both are good though the basilisk is slightly better

They should run about equal against standard marines at approx 3 kills per turn. Against most vehicles it'll be the same. The earthshaker will do better against T4 or below units with 2+ saves, the manticore will do better against T5 or anyone with a tshirt save. I'd say they're even and it depends what you fight.

Limited shots on the manticore could be annoying in a longer game if it spends the fifth turn firing just a heavy bolter. Also, if the basilisk is killed early you won't feel like you 'wasted' any missiles. So from a butthurt point of view I'd say the basilisk is the safer choice.

Ah, I remembered them as 10 points for some reason, so skipping a few could actually buy you something useful. Carry on as you were.

>> No.55895653

Do they really even need some super special smite mechanic? The whole point of bound psykers is just soaking psychic attacks, they'd probably be fine just being wyrdvanes with a 2d6 deny roll. 1d3 mortal wounds per model is way to many for a unit that can take 6 models but the perils on all doubles killing the unit doesn't really make it seem like it would be worth ever using in the first place.

40k novels:

I highly recommend Deathwatch by Steve Parker and the associated short stories, Headhunted and Exhumed.

Baneblade, Shadowsword, and the 2 short stories, Stormlord and Iron Harvest (Read this one before Shadowsword, it will make the crew much more likeable, in a Brothers in Arms sort of way) by Based Guy Haley (generally speaking Haley is a good pick).

Dead Men Walking for one of the most grimdark book about 40k, featuring the KDK, by Steve Lyons. Fantastic but super depressing. The short story Down Amongst the Dead Men by the same author deals with "training" on Krieg is equally good and depressing.
15 Hours is also one of the best IG book there is around.

Red Tithe by Robbie McNiven and Eye of Medusa by David Guymer are two excellent books giving loads of background information about, respectively, the Carcharodons and the Iron Hands (I have to say, I'm a Carcharodons player but hot diddly damn Eye of Medusa was good, IH are scary and brutal as fuck in this book)

Death of Antagonis and Warden of the Blade by David Annandale are solid books as well, one fluhes out the Black Dragon nicely (very different interpretation than Kyme's savage view on them) and the 2nd is about Castellan Crowe, and a fantastic insight on the perils of the GK and the bearer of the blade of Ant'wyr in particular. Manages to make him non Mary-Sue.

Pdf related is also a great book, it's everything a book about an unknown chapter should be.

Possibly stupid question but I can't find anything specifically addressing it in the rules:
If a unit has a +1 strength modifier on it does that apply to weapons that have a specific strength characteristic? For example a plague drone prehensile proboscis is strength 4.

You're conflating mundane "belief" with religion.

I could chose to be table-agnostic, but that would be a really stupid waste of my time.


There's no term for being without gods in the face of gods if you try to semantics away the use of atheism. It's a retarded excercise in philosophical navel-gazing to go "uh actually TECHNICALLY if you know a god exists you believe in that god"

A man who assumes Zeus exists and doesn't worship him is not an atheist, he has invested faith in the concept of Zeus's reality.

A man who has met Zeus and doesn't worship him is no different from a man who has met Joe the fishmonger and doesn't worship him.

It's also noticeable how much ADB will keep offscreen in an effort to keep his darlings look good. For example, in the night lords trilogy it'll sometimes be said that Talos has been torturing people, but he pretty much never does it onscreen (closest is when navigator-waifu walks in just as he's finished, as I recall) so he can still seem like a nice chap to the reader. In the same series we're told the blood angels inflicted massive casualties on the night lords when they boarded, but all we actually see is them getting BTFO and failing to kill a single night lord. It's like ADB knows he needs to suggest that his favourites aren't all nice/don't succeed all the time, but can't bring himself to actually write it most of the time.

Kinda, but it comes down to the simple fact that a lot of people who don't think "Things I should be worshipping" exist are going to use the term god in casual conversation anyhow to refer to the things everyone else is calling gods.

Always KMK. They're Str 8 base so against just about everything at worst you're wounding on 4's. And you get D6 shots instead of 1 shot.

Smashas do have 1 more AP and D6 dmg instead of D3, so they can go full lascannon mode if you get lucky. But you have to get very lucky, since it's a 4+ to hit then around a 44% chance to wound against T8, then on average you do 3.5 wounds. They're more swingy, so if you feel like you're lucky, go with them. But KMK are just all round most consistent.

Most effective is just spamming kannons since you get keep crew sizes small and there isn't a massive difference between AP-2 and AP-3 against a lot of targets because of invul saves and D6 dmg kannons can be quite threatening and they're realy damn cheap at 27 ppm vs 41 for a Smasha. Always remember when pricing Mek Gunz/Big Guns that you need to pay for the crew as well, 4 points for Big Gunz, 10 points for Mek Gunz. It adds up.

I don't think they did. I never play at a top tier level, but I have played them to good effect in local tournaments in 8th. They always felt like they pulled their weight when delivered in a Wave Serpent and a Warlock tossing Enhance on them. Not overpowered, but definitely scary, something any opponent had to consider.

Before her remake she was T3 no Eternal Warrior (so she could get instant Deathed super easy) S5 and no Gemini Body Guards.

She was significantly less powerful prior to her new model.

The effects of modifiers are distributive, so the effect of -1 To Hit versus +1 To Save matters more depending on the firer's BS and target's save. Low BS suffers more from -1 To Hit, High BS suffers more from +1 to Save. Low Armor Save gains more from -1 to Hit, High Armor Save gains more from +1 to Save.

I see two issues with the Eldar morale thing. A, is that GW is pretty rapidly trivializing the effects of the new morale mechanics, and some of the more elite armies (AdM, CSM) suffer from morale markedly more than others but don't really gain anything for that weakness.

The other side is that it massively weakens enemy anti-morale rules. I feel bad for Night Lords.

>> No.55898188

-1 to hit effects weapon special rules as well. Some weapons get some form of bonus effect if they roll 6s, if you have -1 to hit, then it isn't possible to roll a 6.

I recently started a drukhari army and they are certainly an army that is miss judged by a quick glance, however I genuinely think they are my favourite and I've played and collected orks, guard, Space marines, nids and eldari.

Mostly morale 8 for non-characters, and none of the Cult Troops are immune to morale. We've already got our codex, so our being one of the armies susceptible to morale is set in (admittedly weak) stone.

Yes, there are ways to bolster is (Word Bearers are super original and turn into loyalists with their legion trait, and Black Legion turn themselves into an inferior version of the Ultramarines mono-list).

>> No.55898286

There certainly are not many, but there are more than there are models who get a buff if they roll a save for 6, thats for sure.

There are abilities that proc on 6s to hit as well, such as the Militarum Tempestus regimental doctrine.

Now that I think of it, wouldn't this also make overcharged plasma explode on rolls of 2 as well?

>> No.55898290

regardless of the outcome, -1 to hit is the one capable of making things overheat on 1s and 2s instead of just 1s, so its more useful

>> No.55898313

Thing is, -1 To Hit will pretty much always be better than +1Sv unless rerolls are involved. Against a target with BS2+ rerolling ones including modified misses (physically impossible to be better than that, only available on Cawl) a -1Hit will remove 8.33% of the enemy damage, or half what +1Sv would if you're not already pushed past your Save Gap.
In ANY OTHER SITUATION it's equal or better as far as I can tell.

But anon, modifiers are multiplicative.
3/6 to hit (4+) 3/6 to wound (4+) and a 3/6 to damage(4+ save)
Doesn't matter if it's - 1 to hit or +1 to save. You just change one of the 3/6 to 2/6
