So there's 1 herald on top commanding 8 heralds and 888 bloodletters, and each herald also commands 8 heralds and 888 bloodletters, with a total of 88 circles? I will assume the top herald is in the only circle with 1 herald instead of 8.

Bloodletters = 888*heralds
Heralds - 8^0 + 8^1 ... + 8^87 = 8^88-1 = 29642774844752946028434172162224104410437116074403984394101141506025761187823615

Psycannons are pretty shit this edition.
The best loadout are 4 Psilencers, they put out a shitton of dakka, are comparatively cheap (for GKs, at least) and because they do D3 damage they can put a hole into anything in the game, as long as you can manage to wound it on 5s. I've killed land raiders with these things.

I gave the correct number earlier for 1 herald commands 8 heralds each of which commands 8 heralds, and so on, with a total number of layers equal to 88. If you drew that, it would be what we call in math a tree, a special kind of graph, with the 0th Herald on top, 8 below him, 64 below them, and so on.

Another anon accused me of getting it wrong, which probably means I misunderstood the arrangement, and I can't math you an answer if I'm misunderstanding the question.

Could you draw the "top" of these circles, just a couple layers, so I can see what you mean?

I'd say it would depend on the rank they achieved, and for the SOB, for life. If you're still in the guard on a low level by the time you're, say, 45, they'd probably shift you off to a PDF if not earlier, although if you were in active duty you'd probably be promoted very highly by that time for being able to survive so much.
And if you're a conscript, it's probably going to be a fairly reasonable amount of time recruited into active-duty service, similar to real-life countries except slightly more grimdark, so about 1-5 years on a hive world, it depends how many citizens they have and whether their priority is having well-trained PDF equivalent to true guard, or large amounts of passably trained citizens rotating frequently so military experience is spread throughout the population. Then there's the possibility it's a system like the Roman legions where it's a small part of society that has to do it for basically 25 years, something like the Vostroyans, where not everyone is conscripted but those who are conscripted have to put in a lot of work.

Unfortunately, I don't think there's any regiment in the fluff that isn't pants-on-head grimderp retarded when it comes to military service, so you're never going to find solutions even as intelligent as some of the stupider ones humanity has actually tried on Earth.

For example, you won't find any - even Catachan - that work like the US military, i.e. an army predominantly consisting of volunteers whose full-time career is military service, because precisely 0 regiments actually commit to ensuring any reasonable number of people survive service long enough to retire. Instead, the ones that use volunteers accomplish it through a combination of propaganda and economic hardship.

It's one reason WH40K rpgs go off the rails so easily - even with a GM good enough to keep everyone in charge crazy and stupid, it only takes one rational person with power to start fixing all of the self-inflicted problems society has in-universe.

They can, yes. You might be thinking of the ones in Terminator armour, I honestly don't remember their loadouts off the top of my head. But stock Inquisitors can be any Ordo and can take Incinerators.

Strictly speaking, I believe Ordos are chosen when Relics are issued, i.e. after finding out your opponents' army, but you can model and fluff yours as strictly Malleus for sure.

I didn't get the impression you were misunderstanding the arrangement, although I would say it's not starting with 1, it's starting with 8, and each member of the first row gets 8 in the second row, and each member in the second row has 8 in the third row, and so on.
For bloodthirsters, there are 8 rows, and for heralds we'll say there are 88.

Ok, so there's no 1 herald on top? Then my answer changes - it's about 8 times bigger.

8 heralds on top of 8 heralds each, for 88 layers, is 8^1+8^2 ... + 8^88 = 8^89-2 = 237142198758023568227473377297792835283496928595231875152809132048206089502588926

888 times that for bloodletters.

8 Bloodthirsters commanding 8 Bloodthirsters is the same math, but we cut it off earlier, at 8 layers:
8^1+8^2+...8^8 = 8^9-2 = 134217726 Bloodthirsters.

>it only takes one rational person with power to start fixing all of the self-inflicted problems society has in-universe.

But jokes aside, I'd say the reason there's no professional military giving people perks and careers as such is because in most places it's too severe a conflict for it to be just another job. The people who have a primarily economic motive who can do something else won't join because it's so risky, and conscription would be basically mandatory almost everywhere because the need for soldiers is that high. It's only in the officer corps where there would be room for non-vocational careerism, and even then usually in planets' regiments it's defined by the politics and culture of that planet, with the nepotistic elite dominating it so that it's de-facto a cross-section of the people who control civilian society controlling the military society, as if they'd been conscripted. And even in the officer corps, there's probably going to be a lot of explicit conscription either because the pool of officers is limited by factors like caste systems or populations where most people aren't suited to be officers (ogryn tier intelligence, as an example cause), or else they'd conscript their officer caste because they simply need that many officers to control the huge amount of people in the regiments.

If you have spare change left over, you should always spend it to give your sergeants bolters.

Also, Grenade Launchers are not efficient uses for points, especially for Cadia. I'm not sure how many points you'll save per se, but you're better off moving your heavy weapons into your Infantry squads (it makes them loads cheaper) and changing the special weapon to plasma if your goal is versatility (the alleged intent of grenade launchers).

But really after a big crusade Guardsmen regiments can be given a place to live on one of the recently captured worlds helping to form the PDF. I've read of this happening in several instances.

I have a question:

How is suicide handled in the Imperium of Man? Not "valiant last stand" suicide or "ritual sacrifice for Chaos" suicide, but the soul-crushing, "end-it-all" kind?

Culturally, I imagine suicide is treated less as an "honorable" demise (Roman falling upon his own sword), and more as a form of treason. After all, if you kill yourself before giving your life to the Emperor, you're technically stealing your life from Him, committing treason and heresy. Worse is how surviving relatives would be treated (having a relative that committed suicide is a good way to be a social pariah in certain parts of the South).

How does the Imperium combat this? Sure, Servitorization or Arcoflagellation are potential options, but relatively expensive, and subject to political tangles. Treatment in a Medicae sanatorium might be an option for shell-shocked heroes, but not available to a lowly Administratum scribe or Hive factory-guilder.

Nobles would alternate between seeking (discrete) help, or viewing the suicide of other nobles as a favor to their political advancement. Von Straab was even able to get away with murder by saying he came across a tragic suicide, despite Von Strabb holding the gun in question!

This actually fascinates me as for being a grimdark setting, there's a surprisingly lack of this aspect of human psychology.

Don't know, but the actual grimdarkness of the setting may leave little to it. In the same sense that people in Africa and other poor people are less known for suicide, despite a hard life.

Probably that in an universe where everything is trying to kill you, most people don't really think that they could end-it all. They are too busy trying to survive.

Fair enough. Maybe the fact that gang wars and duelling exist (as well as Chrono-Gladiator arenas) as fairly unregulated aspects of life mean that those seeking to end it all have "acceptable" ways of doing so.

Then again, for the more "sedate" parts of the Imperium (again, being a clerk or scribe in the nightmare bureaucracy of the Administratum or Departmento Munitorium) would mean you have relatively little risk of a terrifying death but little to live for.

Perhaps a more dangerous issue is the fact that there is no real equivalent of a "suicide hotline," "alcoholics anonymous," or other semi-standardized sources of help, instead being on a planet-to-planet (if not hive-to-hive or even "hab sector to hab sector") basis. The fact that charitable organizations are the perfect front for clandestine cults can easily have the insidious effect of hindering the efforts of genuine organizations.

If you want to play kitchenhammer with a small amount of models per side, I would recommend 2nd Edition 40k. The games were "smaller" and more detailed (if a bit clunky). For example, the average 2nd ed game was 1500 points and the base Guardsman was 10 points per model, base. In 8th, 2000 points and the base Guardsman is 4 points (3 points for Conscripts). Space Marines were 33 points and are 13 points in 8th.

So let me see if I'm getting how detachments, regiment bonuses, and overall armies work correctly:

I can have a Cadian Detachment that consists of everyone having the Cadian keyword. Because of this they get the regiment bonus. I can then have an Imperial Fists detachment with a chapter Master and some marines that will also get their chapter bonus. I can use both of these detachments together because they both share the Imperium keyword?

That is correct, yes.

Genestealer Cults have an exception to the rules, called "Brood Brothers." For each detachment of Genestealer Cults you take, you may take one of Guard. The Guard cannot take Special Characters, and replace their <Regiment> with Brood Brothers. This Guard detachment ignores the normal restrictions on Keyword allying.

Genestealer Cults also have the Tyranid Keyword, so can ally with Tyranids.

So if you want, you can have a detachment of Tyranids and a detachment of Guard teaming up in a totally fluffy faction. All it takes is 5 points and 1 CP to take a single Genestealer Neophyte as an Auxiliary Detachment.

Dick swinging, maybe. They're twice as killy as regular power fist termies and tougher to kill than any infantry this side of Custodes with storm shields or Bullgryns with the save shenanigans. They're definitely way too expensive for what they provide, but sometimes it's nice to have a block of pure implacable assfuckery deepstrike in for some grinding.

Though, if the leaks are correct they're dropping from 75 to 60 points in CA, so that may give them a good niche.

Kronos cannot feed itself despite hanging around the borders of the Great Rift and fighting on the worlds nearby the Rift which should stock full of biomass.This shows like in Shadowbrink the Tyranids avoided eating and assimlating tainted biomass. If the Tyranids can sustain from tainted biomass, then Kronos wouldn't be needing other Hive Fleets to feed it.

>n-no it’s not retarded to be a full melee force in a setting where everyone else has guns

What is this? This is stupid and came out of nowhere. The only thing similiar is that one time when Tyranidfags claimed that Tyranids are equal to daemons in melee only to be showed that Tyranids lost every melee battle against daemons.

This is actually good. Codex fluff being full of propaganda and unreliable narrators actually makes the whole thing more plausible in a way, so that the really stupid shit like Lucius possessing a Necron can be excused as exaggerated accounts.

My favorite example of this is the Draigo/Mortarion fight. It's in both codices, but in the GK one it's explicitly mentioned how Draigo, completely on his own, shredded through Mortarion's Deathshroud and BTFO him 1v1 fox only final destination, while in the DG codex they just talk about how it was a Pyrrhic victory and desperate measures and all that shit.

Man, I remember in one discussion I said I had concerns with assorted rules/balance changes for 8th (you know, most everything related to the "Most Playtested" meme), someone got mad and was "you must be one of those cheesy minmax Taudar players" or so.

"I play Word Bearers."

Honestly, the whole "three ways to play" really fucking bothers me. Not just that "matched play" is functionally "narrative play + restrictions" (as oppossed to, say, the 4e Book having rules for Campaigns, Veteran Honors, "attacker/defender" Kill Team, etc), but the idea that you can isolate players.

Not to say skub like "casuals are WAACs in denial" but people *do* like to win a good fight now and then. And if certain combos or armies are poorly balanced, internally or externally, it will "seep" from the tournaments into the LGSs and pickup play. And it may actually scare off people from buying certain armies, either because said armies are weak, or are so good that nobody will want to play them!

Like, when Space Marines are "Bobby G's Assblower" or Raven Guard, Chaos is "Ninja Alpha Berzerkers," Culexus Assassins carry huge signs going "you have to shoot me, neenerneener," Magnus is more likely to join Mortarion rather than his own Legion, or the only Genestealer Cultists you see are "solo" Neophyte Auxiliaries allowing Tyranids and Guard to tag-team, the game has fucked up both on a competitive and narrative level.

And many fanboys seem happy to point fingers at each other instead.

I really don't know why WYSIWYG is such a big deal in Power Level, it's a very unbalanced way to play from the get-go, and the point GW was trying to make with it is to just plop some models down and play, instead of spending time constructing a list. How my shop usually does it is that you're allowed to choose either WYSIWYG, or whatever options are listed on the dataslate. It makes a ton of sense to me, since noobs don't have to flip to the back of the book to find that Lascannon profile or what have you, it's all right in front of them.

It shouldn't require teamwork to keep Kronos fed because there should be an abundance of biomass rich worlds alongside the borders of the Great Rift. On average Kronos should always walk away with a net gain because they eat their dead and whatever biomass on the planet.

Eh, it's for the purpose of the 1v1, because it's one (1-wound) smite per squad and the bigger the size the less it matters. It'd massively skew a pure 1v1 (well, for a given value of massive, it's still only one wound that can be saved on a 5+) but on a full 6v6 or something it's all but irrelevant.

Just for fun though, let's do the math. 9 Paladins cost about as much as 6 Deathshrouds (477 vs 450) and the Paladins deal 6 wounds killing 3 Deathshrouds per turn with Halberds (the best choice both in general and point efficiency), plus 2/3 from the Smite, while the Deathsroud deal, if my math is right, 15.5 wounds, killing 5 Paladins.

No no, the idea is that after the hyperbolic time chamber that is Octarius he's approaching Beast levels. Come on, even the lore points towards him becoming the second coming of the Beast, and Orks get bigger and stronger the more they fight.

The big dick character power level used to be chapter master, which is why Dante, Calgar, Logan and all those were the benchmark and stuff like the Avatar of Khaine and the Swarmlord were roughly on their level, a bit over because hey, they're giant monsters. Then Primarchs came back because Marines' couldn't not be the biggest (literally biggest, which is retarded) and baddest guys on the tabletop. So everything else should (and in most cases plausibly could) get a leg up to match.

Not all of the worlds near the Rift are daemon worlds. Look at the map and you will see known planets full of life near the Rift.

>Also about "most worlds in the galaxy and therefore the Rift are barren" is unclear to you?

For millions of years, the races of the galaxy have been terraforming and settling the planets of the galaxy. Most worlds are barren nonsense does not fly.

It's not bad writing. It hearkens to the fact that the T'au still have the darkness of the Mont'au within them. The daemons exploited that and unleashed the hatreds and rage that the T'au long have suppressed.

>Earlier in their history, the Tau were a culture built upon warring tribes. During this time, the Tau's legends tell of the first appearance of the Ethereals at the city of Fio'taun. The fortress city of Fio'taun was under assault by the Tau warriors from the plains. Though negotiation had been attempted, the fierce plains warriors would settle for nothing less than the annhilliation of the city of Fio'taun.

Tau were bloodthirsty barbarians prior to the Ethereal. This fluff just explains that the Tau still have that nature. The Ethereals just surpress it. And the God of Rage can awaken it. What a surprise.

Unless otherwise stated, a unit starts out with no weapons, you have to pay for each one, including any upgrades you take (like tomb blade shield vanes). Relics are technically free, but you still have to pay for the corresponding weapon (You need to buy a Power Maul in order to give a Chaos Marine the Black Mace).

Yeah, it's definitely the smart choice. Hammerhand adds 2 wounds dealt by the Paladins, so that's another Deathshroud dead. Sanctuary drops the damage dealt by the Deathshrouds from 15.5 to 11.6, so it's the clear winner.

Bear in mind though that this is all just contextless mathhammer in a vacuum, and killing dudes will obviously drop the damage they do. Even with units as tough as terminators (and deathshroud in particular), shit dies in 8th, so whoever goes first kills enough of the other to win, realistically speaking.

Hammerhand would probably be clutch since they're using Halberds, not Warding Staves, but I didn't check all of anon's math.

I don't think it's particularly interesting because the Paladins have no reason to willingly get into a melee fight with the Deathshroud to begin with, instead of pressing their superior mobility and shooting output.

I wonder how many daemons and chaos servants have said stuff like that. Abaddon and Be'lakor both seem to be under the illusion that the Chaos gods can be beaten by anything except than retroactively killing all life in the galaxy, or possibly every galaxy.

>> No.56324266

Means they can't into numbers, as usual.

But really, losing millions in a planet-wide assault isn't actually unrealistic at all. It's just that Guards, Orks and Nids should consequently go up to the billions, or even trillions.

>> No.56324267

>>56324222
Well yeah, thats usually the way it goes. Whomever gets the charge gets to win.
If we take it in context of void, though, I think the Paladins might also have the advantadge at range, since they can just kite and shoot the Deathshroud, or use Gate to jump exactly 24" away from them, since the Deathshroud only have flamers, right?

>> No.56324287

>>56324267
Right. 5 Paladins with a pair of Psycannons or Psilencers and Gate could reliably kite Deathshroud indefinitely, so the Deathshroud would have to deep strike in and hope they make the charge, which is very unlikely.

>> No.56324295

>>56323947
Btw, I just realized you miscalculated the Paladins, you only get 8 of them since they cost 55 ppm, meaning that 8 = 440 points

>> No.56324315

>>56324267
True. Paladins all come with storm bolters, but those don't so much as tickle Deathshrouds, and take two heavy weapons (incinerator, psylencer or psycannon) per five, none of which are super great at dealing with them.

Basically deathshrouds are super expensive and unlikely to make their points back unless you can deep strike them and put them against high priority targets, and Paladins have better stuff to be doing with their time. I guess on an empty table the Paladins can just try to shoot them and Gate of Infinity every turn, but it'll take quite a while and leave everyone feeling rather stupid.

The CSM Daemon Prince gives rerolls to both Legion and Daemons aligned to the same god as itself, is a 2+ to hit for both, is a psyker with 1 power and deny, can take a pretty decent gun, the talons are good for dealing with chaff, the sword and axe are decent at character or monster hunting, and a CSM Daemon Prince Aligned to Slaanesh in the Emperor's Children Legion can be a Warlord with the Stimulated by Pain Warlord Trait, be equipped with 2 Malefic Talons and the Intoxicating Elixir, and cast Diabolic Strength on itself for 12 attacks being made at Strength 10 -2AP D2, as well as having access to Delightful Agonies for a 5+ FnP instead of Diabolic Strength because 11 attacks made at strength 8 is still going to wreck face so much and Delightful Agonies is worthwhile staying power.
