Tru dat. I'm looking forward to finally getting my Melee Cut together and having a game with the Codex, since I've been really damn busy since before it came out and I don't see that changing until next August. Everyone at the shop plays Marine Mash and the place loathes conversions, so I'm going to Stygies teleport a reroll Magos, 40 Fulgurites and 20 Corpuscarii onto their heads Turn 1 and open fire point-blank with my entirely converted army.
Only problem is finding enough Admech heads for all of them. Maybe I should just use the hooded Ranger heads as well as the hooddown ones on the Corpuscarii, but I feel that would look wrong for Servitors.

Been reading all the tourney players crying on DakkaDakka about how we have two competitive units. Personally I'd like a bunch of tweaks and points cuts here and there, but we're not all that bad unless your idea of a competitive unit is at minimum a Conscript blob. I'd like Neutrons to get some kind of slight bonus since all the Codex armies save GK and Nids either have a Killshot strat or double shooting leaving what's meant to be the premier tank destroyer looking very sad, plus Sicarian buffs and the long-awaited Kataphron points cut to around 5/9 of what they are currently.


Sadly the Rusties are pretty much permanently garbage. A single Rustie and a single Fulgurite will do the exact same number of Mortal Wounds at 0.444, except the Priests hit much harder normally, get better bonuses and come in huge blocks. They're not THAT much worse, but without Deep Strike you're using Infiltrate for guaranteed 3" T1 charges anyway so the Priests are strictly better.

I'm praying that Breachers get a points cut to 30ish ppm or a much better selection of guns in Chapter Approved, because I want an entire army of servitor blocks, Rataphrons, walkers and maybe my melee dudes but having to take Troop Skitarii gets in the way of that. ATM they're useless over MSU Skittles because they do no damage.

Ryza actually; rerolling 1's on wounds is super nice. Other than that, Stygies; first turn charges all day. Mars sucks, Lucius is too slow.

Ruststalkers are comparable to Electros, but with slightly more endurance and slightly better chance to hit thanks to protocal, and are faster by 2". Way more expensive, however.

Use Kataphron and Kastellans to screen the enemy and take shots or go after heavier melee units. They are your anvil, as they can take a beating and keep on trucking. Use vanguard for fire support/Plasma. Sniper rangers are optional.

Prime Hermeticon+Mechadendrite Dominus is pretty good at a melee and support; deep strike or run with the troops. Charge your heavier/cheaper units in, THAN use your Sicarians, Dragoons and Priests

IIRC Fire Prisms also had D3, but who uses Vanquishers? Neutrons are slightly superior against things like Land Raiders, but both Russes and Prisms get better backup guns and can use their doubletap basic loadout to gib infantry too. Neutrons do one thing very well, and if they're going to give the basic tanks the ability to do almost as well (Russ does 3 1/9 wounds to a Pred, Neutron does 3 5/9) as well as more flexibility. In their codexes Russes got Shoot Twice and significant buffs from Relics, Orders and Doctrines, Fire Prisms got Shoot Twice and a Killshot-lite, Neutroncrawlers got a points cut of 3 to 6 points per model.

Take a squad of 4 with Stygies tactics to make them basically invisible, charge and wipe Guilliman or a standard Predator-grade vehicle off the board, or delete a damaged blob. They do everything pretty well, including screen to block DS.

This might just be my almost DSless Admech complaining, but I do wonder why they suddenly decided to allow Turn 1 deep striking. Basically removes the downside of Reserves entirely and just makes it a free perfect deployment and alpha strike. Infiltrate already exists to do that job at the cost of sticking your head out for deleting or burning Command Points if you don't get T1.

Incredibly, incredibly good. They have a tether, so they hit on 2's, get 2 more hits on a 4+. -2 to hit them with stygies, they are AP -1 and Str8, and D2. Oh, and they can shoot as well thanks to their pistols.

They are monsterous.

Eh, Sicarians aren't too bad; I'd argue that Infiltrators will do a better job mudering GEQs than Electros due to 5 Pistol shots and their Str 6 weapons naturally. Plus their LD debuff can occasionally help a bit. Plus, they are a bit more immune to lucky hits and shots thanks to their W2. They can really do some work.

Rusties are a bit worse off, and lacks the rules and weapons of infilitrators that make them viable. They need some changes or a price cut; Your right in that they lack a good purpose. I would change the dual blade set up should be AP -5 and +2 Str on the second round of combat.

A friend of mine plays Warhammer 40k and is a regional tournament organizer. 40k has recently released a new edition which has brought a lot of old and new players into the game. With more players comes more drama. He’s been sharing me horror stories from past and present when we’ve been hanging out, and I’ll share a good one that happened recently.

This event happened at a 20 person tournament. A mix of people were there, a few neckbeards, no one was too smelly. Enter Teen-beard. He was probably 16 years old with a scraggly neckbeard, stained shirt, cargo pants, but no fedora, sadly. He was dropped off by his mom, who gave him a stern warning of “behave yourself”.

This warning was not heeded. Teen-beard played Eldar (space elves for the unfamiliar), and his lack of skill, combined with being a very poor sport, did not make for a good combination. Every round, my friend would hear nasally whining from across the room about how unfair the dice were, and how his opponents lists were “overpowered.” For reference, the latest edition of 40k is the most balanced it’s been in many years, AND the Eldar are a very strong faction, so he didn’t have any ground to stand on.

On round 3 of the tournament (and after several players walked up to quietly complain), Teen-beard is matched up with a Space Marine player who brought a powerful list with a lot of Stormravens, which are a heavy gunship that dominated the meta early after the edition came out (they’ve since been nerfed). The opponent is, according to my friend, a good guy and seasoned 40k player who enjoys going all out when it comes to tournaments, and also has a low bullshit tolerance. Teen-beard kept charging his units forward, which led his opponent to strafe his units with his gunships and wreck the Eldar in a powerful alpha-strike. Teen-beard threw a tantrum, whining that his opponent’s list was “broken”, that he should take it easy on him, and so on.

Yeah losing the Transonic blade rule hurt more than I thought it would honestly. At least before you had a chance of melting through a Terminator unit if they survived the combat, now you survive and you're still fishing for 6's even though we still had the 6's rule in 7th ed anyway.

The Codex helped out a bit but I still feel like a lot of the cool non-op stuff about admech is gone for no good reason and there's nothing to replace it, that was Ruststalkers entire thing and now they just occasionally do a mortal wound. It's not like they were even any good in 7th, Infils were still better but let's just nerf them anyway.

It's not even just that, losing real Arc weaponry is shit as well, no more haywire has made all our Arc weapons into less reliable and worse lascannons that cost the same or even more.

>> No.56417832

40k Veteran calmly replies that one, it’s a tournament, and Teen-beard has been doing the same bad tactic of charging across an open field each game (terrain and cover is much more important in this edition), not taking into account enemy weapon ranges and so on. Teen-beard just whines and blubbers some more. Teen-beard’s turn comes, and inflicts only a few wounds, since flying units give a penalty to hit. None of the gunships have been shot down. Teen-beard is practically in tears at this point.

Teen-beard: “I just want to win! Is a simple win too much to ask?!”

40k Vet: “Dude, it’s a tournament, people are playing to win. We’re not going to let you win just so you will stop crying.”

Teen-beard (in between sniffles): “I-I’ve been waiting for th-this all month. I’ve worked so h-hard on my models!” (His models were poorly painted)

40k Vet: “I loudly overheard you poking fun at people who go all out painting models. Don’t pull that. Let’s get this game over so I don’t have to deal with you.”

Teen-beard: “Up yours, you grognard.”

40k Vet snorts and starts his turn. By now my friend the tournament organizer is about ready to disqualify Teen-beard, since he’s now throwing insults. 40k Vet, having dealt with much of the Eldar units that could hurt his gunships, now goes in for the kill, targeting the Eldar Farseer (a type of wizard). As 40k Vet starts to place his gunships, Teen-beard actually blocks the model with his hand, shrieking “Don’t kill my Farseer, DON’T KILL MY FARSEER!”

40k Vet: “I…need to… because it’s how I can wrap this game up quickly.”

Teen-beard: “My Farseer hasn’t killed anything yet! I want him to kill something!”

40k Vet: “Well, you should have done that on your previous turn.”

Teen-beard continues to try and block, so my friend goes up and warns him that he’s going to get DQ’d if he keeps this up. Teen-beard pouts and removes his hands. 40k Vet has good dice, he rolls to hit, and then rolls to wound. Maximum Damage. The Farseer and other targeted units are obliterated.

Teen-beard just emits a shrieking growl of “UURRRRRRRRRRRRRR” and starts shaking the table, tears starting to flow. My friend finally tells Teen-beard that’s he done, to pack his stuff and leave.
Teen-beard: “Fuck this stupid tournament! You’re all a bunch of cunts!”

40k Vet: “Peace out, neckbeard.”

Teen-beard then smacks one of the gunships, which hits another and sends it off the table, causing it to shatter. 40k Vet looks like his about to strangle the kid.

My friend: “Call your mom.”

Teen-beard: “No!”

My friend: “Either you call your mom, or I call the police.”

Teen-beard goes pale and takes out his phone. After he dials, my friend demands that he speak to her, before Teen-beard can spin the story. After Teen-beard refuses, my friend again threatens to involve the police. He then gets the phone and tells Teen-beard’s mom about his son’s tantrum, while Teen-beard just stares at the floor.

Half an hour later Teen-beard’s mother shows up, and literally grabs him by the collar of his sweat stained shirt, pulling him towards the exit.

Teen-beard: “Wait! Mom, my models!”

Mom: “I don’t care.”

Teen-beard: “My models!”

Mom: “You are DONE with your models.”

Teen-beard: “I want my Warhamm-“

Mom: “I said you’re DONE.” She then yanks him again and Teen-beard follows her, crying. As soon as they are out the door, random players start cheering. 40k vet ended up getting second place, and everyone threw in some money to help cover the cost of a new gunship (two people even offered to paint it). Two people were interested in starting Eldar as a second faction, so they split Teen-beard’s army between themselves.

Yeah, if any faction is going to pull a "combined targeting uplink" thing to smash tank weakspots it would logically be us, but no, we just get Reroll Ones unless we commit to a Named Character just to get what a good few others pays 2CP or one poxy order for.
Personally I think Ballistarii would be usuable if they got the ability to target Characters if they move less than half distance, AKA the exact same thing they do in the fluff ALL THE TIME, described in the codex. Would probably not build any because I love my taser chickens and I need all those heavy weapons for conversions, but it would promote them from shoddy to good.


Infils are currently good, although I've never had any luck with them because they've fluffed the deepstrike shooting and charging before being deleted both times they've hit the table for me, but I can see their uses. Maybe make them cost a couple less points or give them their A3 back.

Rusties will never see a second round of combat since people know they can do that and can just Fall Back. You'd have to add the No Escape rule Wyches have, and even there it's risky as hell. Charge through Overwatch, tank 1 round of combat, win a roll-off, probably tank a second round if your opponent is halfway smart and only THEN can you do some crappy knockoffs of Mortal Wounds?


Pretty much. Three great units, three mediocre units that are quite boring to use, everything else becomes a bit shit.

This is exactly my problem. Our army used to reflect the luff, vanguard caused rad-storms on a 6 and caused loads of wounds, ruststalkers attuned their weapons and devastated, Infiltrator's neurostatic aura actually affected enemies and wasn't some shitty -1 leadership thing.

We see Balistarii described as being able to stalk across a battlefield, snipe commanders with perfect accuracy and shoot so well that they can fire inbetween Dragoon's legs moving to kill a target and stuff like that.

What we get is just a fast moving lascannon carrier with no real reflection of this stealth and accuracy they have, a fucking headhunting vehicle doesn't even have sniper, what the fuck?

I also really want a Dragoon shock cavalry kind of Stratagem where they get a bonus to charge and detract leadership to reflect the fact that a perfectly coordinated mass of cyborg-knights are charging at you with tasers, calmly chanting binharic bullshit while covered in a massive cloud of incense, maybe even a fucking reroll to charge but no, we just have to pay for Doctrina Imperatives now because they couldn't be fucked to give us something fun.

It's like none of the rules writers actually care about the army they write for anymore, they just churn out a passable codex without giving a shit about fun or reflecting the fluff in the crunch.

Our old fun rules like the transonic blades might have been underpowered but at least I felt like I was using ruststalkers that were preparing for the kill-move instead of a fucking marine with a powersword or something.

Good on you for keeping in touch for any motive. It at very least helps her keep motivated to keep painting. And yeah having people to show off your progress helps motivation to keep painting. Having nobody to show off what you are working on kills any will to work. "Why bother, nobody will see it" is a real thing.

Also I tend to take what anon's here have to say with a pile of salt. But, I take it as criticism nonetheless to help get better. Be it they are scathing due to they can get away with being dick bags and lying about how good or bad something is due to being anonymous, I also get feedback from people in person (where they can manipulated it in person with various light sources), and others online who are friends and well, not friends. Gets a healthy set of feedback to really see what it looks like, and yeah, people who know you will have a bias based on their opinion of you. However, anon's here tend to also want to rip people's self worth apart (and some are 100% fine with destroying their stuff over petty things instead of engaging in human interactions because they are 200% autistic).

Even with double shots that's average damage of 8 to the neurons 7, so the fire prism isn't much better, and the crab has an invuln.

Yeah this is my major problem with 8th. As someone who came back into 40k with 7th and admitedly it was a little tricky to learn all these special rules, we had these epic moments where you'd get those 6's and pop the land raider, blow it up and kill everyone inside.

I totally agree with cutting away the rules bloat but I feel like they built a solid base and then just forgot to add anything in to give it character. 40k was a mess before but it had a soul to it, it was exciting compared to Sigmar at least. Now there's not as much of a gap between them, sometimes I just feel like I'm rolling dice and it's a chore, not like I'm charging a bunch of ancient cyborg warriors into extragalactic space bugs who've infested a continent-spanning urban wasteland while there's a massive battle raging around them.

Nope, your wording would still forbid shooting in case like a lone acolyte in cover in a corner and the rest of army made of culexus.

I'd go with such wording :

Character can't be selected as a shooting target when firing a ranged weapon unless at least 1 of the following conditions is true :
-The Character have 10+ Wounds on their datasheet
-The Character is the closest visible target
-There is no other visible non-Character target in the firing weapon range. (This mean that if all the targets in the shooting range are characters, you can target any like you would normally target a non-character unit).

While I can agree with that, I think after all the rule bloat a reset was needed. With time tons of special rules are going to come back.

Yeah I feel you with that last bit. The closer I get to having to go do shit the less I want to do it and just stay in and play vidya or whatever instead.

We both know that it's better to go out and have a shit night than sit in and mindlessly play vidya or watch tv or even paint sometimes and throw away that time with your friends. You can paint or whatever in your actual free time but if you stop turning up to shit then you'll loose friends.

Only advice I have for meeting new people is new hobbies man, think of the people you've met through this, it's the same with other social hobbies. If your uni has any clubs for shit you've wanted to try then maybe give it a go, if you don't like it you could always just leave the club after going once or whatever, if you do like it then you've got a new hobby and new people to talk to.

SO this is probably going to sound like a stupid question, but what's with the John Cena/Lion El'Johnso gif?

I get the lion el homo bit but I still can't fathom the Cena connection... is he particularly renowned for being woofter of something?

Ill be honest i was trying to be able to engage the bubble wrap without having to suffer the overwatch. because 60 s3 shots hitting on 6's still kills a model on average.

Won second in a speed paint contest, which felt nice. Have had a couple people say my marine demi company looked good, which did wonders for my self esteem.
