So the Behemoth Relic is Scythes of Tyran, replaces a models monstrous scything talons, has +1 strength and adds +1 attack and generates additional attacks on 6+ to hit.

OOE can take this, already has an ability that generates additional attacks on 6+ to hit. He's also a Carnifex and benefits from his own +1 hit aura, and benefits from the +1 to hit on the turn he charges from the new Living Battering Ram.

So OOE on the charge with this relic has 6 Strength 8 attacks hitting on 2+, re-rolling 1s, generating TWO extra attacks on each 4+ to hit, doing 3 damage apiece at -3 AP. And for 1CP you can pop a stratagem to re-roll on his wounds.

You'll be making 13 attacks with this on average, 12.63 hits, 9.47 wounds against T8, against a 2+ sv or 5+ invuln thats 6.31 failed saves, resulting in 18.95 damage on average against a Land Raider or Imperial Knight. Also he gets an average of 1 mortal wound in on the charge, so round that to an even 20.

Also I forgot to factor in his Warlord trait, that adds +1 damage for each 6+ to Wound.

This 200 point untargetable Character with a 1CP stratagem and relic will pretty much 1shot Knights on the charge, and definitely will kill Land Raiders OR GUILLIMAN no question.

Now that is a motherfucking Carnifex.

Thing is the first leaker was the one who was mostly inaccurate, the second one who took over hasn't been wrong yet, he just forgot to correct some of the stuff the first guy got wrong.

he had a good 60 tiny-ass mobs pushing up the field...and because fucking all his DG shit had disgustingly resilient, it took forever to cut through. It also feels like he was fielding a full-on competitive list...and fuck those stupid plague dice.

Still, the game was closer than either of us expected, because of some lucky shots with my russes.

I'm comparing the Baal Predator to the Razorback in our own army and, unless the Razorback got a massive point decrease in the SM codex and BS updated the BA rules to reflect that drop, I'm using the point costs in our index as well.

What's the reasoning?

I'm trying to understand (For example) why people rate Talons so highly on Daemon Princes vs Sword and Talon.

Sword is 4 attacks at S7, Ap-2 and 3d. Plus you gain 1 more attack at S7, Ap-2 and 2d. Total damage potential is 14.

Talons is 7 attacks at S7, Ap-2 and 2d. So 14 potential damage.

When did Armageddon become the new thing? I've been playing them forever and 8th hasn't exactly been kind to them. If your goal was optimization, why would you play steel legion instead of cadian, valhallan, catachan, or tallarn, all of which have better rules that are better suited to 8th edition's bias against vehicle weapons?

more dice leads to better average results, as there's less variance.

For example, if I make an attack that does d6 damage, I'm just as likely to roll 1 damage as I am 6.
If I make 6 attacks that do 1 damage, I'm much more likely to average out at 3.5.

I can spike on either set of rolls, but the results of a poor roll are generally not as bad with more dice.

Wait, wait.

The general way GW writes rules is that attack proccing rules don't proc themselves.

Have you accounted for each of his abilities proccing the other one, which is almost certainly legal? Or did GW miraculously account for this for the first time ever?

>> No.56204247

Nope, the skulls were on Baal Prime, which was where the bulk of the Tyranids where and the blood angels failed to hold the nids back. Re-reading the entry on in the rulebook (PG52-53) all three worlds (Baal, and both moons) suffered from draining to some extent. Primus was complete, Secundus was not complete but was still damaged, Baal likely the same situation. The BA were driven back to their fortress monastery, and friggen most of their successor chapter masters died and most of their successor chapters got depleted just like the Blood Angels, save Lamenters.

>> No.56204264

I'd assume we do, but giving Tau super complex combat prostheses isn't their way. IIRC Farsight has a metal leg, but it isn't relevant to his role on the battlefield. Generally speaking, the more senior officers, who are more likely to have sustained extensive wounds due to length of service, get assigned to battlesuit duty.

I don't know if there are any specific mentions but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Genestealers in the lore have infected everything from Eldar, Orks, and T'au, to giant Leeches and reptilian centauroids.

The bonus attacks do not proc more bonus attacks. But that's irrelevant, it generates so many attacks because with the relic he's got two separate abilities that proc extra attacks, so that initial wave of attacks is proccing TWO more each on every 4+ instead of just one.

-Hive Guard
-Warriors for backline synapse

Half your list lends itself to melee, the other half is gunline.

You may want to seriously consider a 50/50 split and take two separate Hive Fleet Detachments, just be very careful how you handle your synapse. That said you have 4 Synapse units so you can probably manage it.

Jormungandr and Kronos are the picks for ranged. Behemoth, Kraken, Leviathan and Gorgon can all work well for melee, although in your case I would go either Kraken or Leviathan.

If you don't want to fuck around too much with multiple Hive Fleets, either Jorm, Kronos or Leviathan will do you well.

versus Grand Master Voldus, a Paladin Ancient, and a 5-man Striker squad.

End result: 1 Guardian squad at full strength, 1 Guardian squad only missing two elves, and Vaul's Wrath platform at 4 wounds

versus Voldus with 3 wounds left.

And the Grey Knights won with 6 victory points to my 2, because Voldus infinity gated to the Superior Objective on the last turn and popped Sancutary, and I couldnt get any guardians to the objective in time and the Heavy D. Cannon managed to roll 1, 1, and 1 with it's volley on the final turn

I thought about Jormungandr and it was definitely my first pick, until I read you lose the cover bonus while advancing or charging..

>It wouldn't have any effect on half of my army I think?

Think objectives
Three dice pick the highest for advance moves plus a cheap stratagem that lets you double the result

Mobility wins games

Also Kraken's fallback and charge lets you reuse "on charge" bonuses like living battering ram and tusked if you get caught out or stuck in combat a turn later, which helps fexes a lot.

They don't really "starve" as they aren't eating planets to feed themselves like people eating farm food. Nids can sustain their current amount of population at any time indefinitely, they're a fully contained eco-system with genetically engineered tyranid producers that photosynthesize sunlight and radiation for energy. The reason they consume planets is to get more biomass as raw material for making more nids.

Yes and they do. A planetary invasion is huge investment for a hive fleet, if too many prey "get away" after the fleet has committed it eventually weakens. Kryptman did this during the first tyrannic war and eventually behemoth was destroyed in naval actions.

Of course even one planet is a feast considering official fluff says they literally drain the oceans and strip several percent of the planet's mass and turn it into new ships in a matter of weeks.

For a sense of scale the Moon is 1.2 percent of the Earth's mass. So a nid invasion gains a Moon's worth of new ship matter from a single successful invasion. A couple of systems later and the fleet's gravity alone is enough to wreck a planet with earthquakes and tidal forces.

That's why they start splitting off into multiple tendrils when they get big, to cover more area and hit more places at once.

But yeah one of the few ways you can quote unquote "starve" them is to wait for them to commit mass to the planet, then exterminatus the fuck out of it so hard all the ash and atmosphere is blasted off and scattered into space so they can't recover it. That DOES drain Tyranids resources, but it also means one less world for the Imperium, permanently, so it's not a viable solution in the long-term, it only buys time.

You got it half right.

Nids scale just as dangerously. The more nids there are, the larger and more intelligent the Hive Mind is, and the more of a buffer they have to absorb losses while they engineer and adapt a counter-strategy.

Nids are no less dangerous than Orks when it comes to critical mass. On top of that they recover losses faster, and on top of THAT they've shown several times they can beat Orks even when the Tyranids are outnumbered by outsmarting and outplaying them.

its probably the most powerful "individual" entity in terms of oure brute force, greater even than the Chaos gods or Emperor. But it interacts and sees the universe only through its beasts in the materium so it doesn't exert its power so overtly like the gods. It could punch khorne, but it won't because its not aware of khorne or the warp in a meaningful way to do that, so instead its power is just observed in the incorruptible nature of tyranids joined to the hive mind and probably the power behind their spacetime bending FTL.

The only reason I could think Guilliman could do more is having a shit ton of ships (now that the hive fleet was gone) to help, with a full imperial army (while the BA just had serfs and a couple thousand marines, instead of millions of troops). It was handwaved far too hard though. I wish it was fleshed out more, and active warzone with Baal itself actively infested with BA's working on retaking it to prevent it birthing a new hive fleet splinter from it's surface with what remaining resources exist upon it. Even after Guilliman showed up and helped out for a week and dumped off some new tots in power armor and a new way to make marines.

yes it literally does, it means they can constantly take in energy from the enviroment and don't need to burn calories to get it. Hibernation doesn't stop animals starving, it just makes them starve slower.
