>Do these guys still exist in 40k?

Yeah, they're still around. They recently got a medium-sized role in the Warlord: Fury of the God-Machine book where they kick a shit ton of ass with aimbot grenade launchers and mecha-punches. Darkmech is pretty cool in that book too, they have suicide EMP bomb corrupted Dunecrawlers to breach the Secutarii lines. I'll find the excerpts.

No idea how they'd see Knights, though. They escort Titans, so I suspect they'd be the big brothers to the Secutarii as opposed to baby Titans.

They did have 7e rules where they were kind of insane, with 24" Assault 4 lasguns that rerolled wounds at BS5 Ignore Cover that could also fire Rending 30" range Warpfire Bolters or S3 AP5 IC blasts that could aim out of Line of Sight. Basically if you were less than T5 and in front of Peltasts you became very sad.
Hoplites were basically a 12" Instant Death Radius for vehicles with Haywire shots, although without transport they only became lethal in the Heresy with Deep Striking 8.33 Hull Points off any Superheavy or Spartan or something. If their Haywire is better than the expected S5 AP- D1 (D3 against VEHICLES) crap then they might be pretty brutal with Stygies tactics.
8e rules were going to be in FoC, which was supposedly so close they and the Ordinatii were the only units left out of the Indexes, but that won't manifest until 2018 at least.

They technically exist, but their rules have yet to be updated to 8th edition.

Despite multiple claims made by GW that all models would have rules, at least Index rules.
Despite multiple releases by FW since 8th started, including some errata that allow for the fielding of other units that also didn't have rules at first.
Despite the FW Mechanicus book having been announced approaching two years ago.
Despite them having been available on the webstore since 2016, meaning hundreds of people probably have those models with no ability to play them.
Despite many questions asked of the customer service team, and many responses along the lines of, "Soon, we promise."

My advice is that if you don't already own them, don't buy them now.

- INFANTRY units with this doctrine add 1 to their Leadership characteristic if they are within 12" of a friendly DASADSAS OFFICER.In addition; COMMAND SQUAD, SPECIAL WEAPONS SQUAD and VETERANS units with this doctrine add 1 to their Leadership characteristic.

- INFANTRY units with this doctrine treat attacks against them with an AP of -1 as having AP 0.In addition; TECH-PRIEST ENGINSEER and SERVITORS units replace their faction keyword <FORGE WORLD> for this doctrine.

- INFANTRY units with this doctrine treat attacks against them with an AP of -1 as having AP 0.In addition; all MILITARUM AUXILLA units adds the faction keyword <adsasdasd> doctrine.

- INFANTRY Two other Guardsmen may form a Heavy Weapons Team who must take an item from the Heavy Weapons list.

>vehicles
-VEHICLES with this doctrine add 1 to their Save characteristic.

-VEHICLES with this doctrine can re-roll hit rolls of 1 for cannon weapons. A cannon weapon is any weapon profile whose name includes the word ‘cannon’ (e.g. autocannon, battle cannon, hellhammer cannon etc.).

- If a VEHICLE with this doctrine remains stationary or moves under half speed in its Movement phase (i.e. it moves a distance in inches less than half of its current Move characteristic) it can re-roll hit rolls of 1 for cannon weapons. A cannon weapon is any weapon profile whose name includes the word ‘cannon’. If a model has a similar ability you can choose which ability to use, but you cannot use both.

Doesn't help their head designer passed away. While yes not everything should revolve around him writing it all he likely had a lot of plans set up and not on paper leaving a lot of things devoid of anything to work with. So now FW has HH core rules to push out, they have to patch shit as 8th edition codex's come out and work on making their own, ect. Throw in reduced running of production likely cutting back how much they are focusing on 40k over HH stuff yeah, your advice is best.

No, of course not, but it's kinda funny how dangerous they are compared to how little they cost the Mechanicus when your standard Rangers can put Leyden balls through Marine eyepieces at significant range under Alpha Doctrinas. In Infinite Circuit a squad of Deathwatch say "4:1 superiority in numbers will never overcome us", charge a Skitarii outpost and then are terminally surprised when a bunch of shirtless pilgrims lay the smackdown on them with lightning.

In Admechland, even the conscripts, pilgrims and cartographers are hardcore.

Daemons are frankly so lacking that I think their codex is going to change their overall play very radically - for starters, deep strike as a rule for daemons detachments seems likely to me.

Funny thing is that my "OC donutsteel do not steal!!1!" original scheme is pretty much behemoths scheme, just slightly modified.
I didnt know nothing about fluff, lore or paintschemes when I started out, all I knew is that I wanted to play space dinosaur bugs.
My thought process for my scheme was pretty much
>I like red, and I think it looks aggressive, so lets make the skin a bright red!
>Hmm, red looks good with a dark color for contrast, lets go with a dark blue/black/purplish carapaces!
>"experimenting with white highlights" hey I kinda like these, I'll put more white highlights on the carapace to make them really stick out
>Tyranid weapons are organically grown, right? Bone-colored would make sense then
When somebody asked if I was playing Behemoth the first time, I was like "Huh? Waz' dat?"
Still kinda bugs me until today, but I still love my scheme nevertheless.

I believe the only times we've seen Thallax fight Marines the Marines do win, since one Blackshield managed to take out fifty uncommanded Thallax over a long assault and another random Captain kills six at once, but the latter is presented as a great feat of arms.
Thallax are basically expendable Marine substitutes, which fits since they're pretty bad in melee, but Ursarax are death incarnate to big heavy slow things like Terminators, since they can just absorb a couple Lightning Claw or even Power Fist hits while preparing the railgun punches.

>>56438559

I'm not too surprised, since we know Myrmidons are at least a match for Astartes and Marines die like anyone else when shot with plasma cannon. They can't take the Admech's medium or heavy stuff on in a fight, hence why they tend to lose if the Admech has more than the 40k standard of "two untrained conscripts" guarding any critical locations. Marines are better than Skitarii, but not better than entire squads of Skitarii with plasma SMGs and anti-Thunderhawk AMRs.

Well, the first colour to replace the green carapace that comes to mind would be some form of navy, preferably darker. The thinking being that it would go nicely with both the grey and white that's present on the skin and provide an overall darker tone to the model that will synergise a bit better than the grey on light green. That way you could also tie in the pink parks, if you want to keep them that is, by washing it and the skin with the same wash.

That all being said, if there some overriding theme about your dudes that you'd want to aim towards? If you went with the navy option, for instance, the bugs could make for a nice winter-themed option.

>>56438858

You set aside some point during list building. Then during the game you can use a Chaos character to summon instead of moving. You roll three die and the result is the maximum power cost you can use.

So for example you set aside 500 points. During the game you decide you want some Bloodletters PL 4 so it's pretty easy. Your Sorc instead of moving summons. you roll your dice and get 12. You can bring a full 30 man squad if you so wish and have 290 more pts worth of summoning.

This. It explicitly says “when a character is slain... it can immediately fight before it is removed from the battlefield”, so I’m saying no getting back up.

It's nice that it's flexible, but it has some problems. You have to have the models to be flexible, which I started Tzeentch Daemons so this was easier for me. On top of that you have to sacrifice a characters movement for a turn and hope your army can handle being under manned while you find the right time to summon.

TETRARCH DECIMUS FUCKING FELIX.

‘Forward! Forward! Forward!’ Felix screamed as loud his as lungs would allow. His battleplate
amplified the cry tenfold, feedback pushing it to the edge of incomprehensibility.
A wave of blue, green, gold, red, black and white armoured Space Marines rose up and followed the
Tetrarch of Vespastor in a howling line, charging headlong at the Plague Marine position as if the river
were not there to stop them. Dozens of Primaris Space Marines in the livery of the Ultramarines were
around Felix, many of whom had fought with him at Ardium, including Sergeant Hellicus and Sergeant
Tevian. The rest were grizzled veterans from the first Ultima Founding reinforcements sent to Ultramar.
Among them stomped Malcades, the first Primaris Space Marine to fall in Ultramar, now bound into the
massive shell of a Redemptor Dreadnought. It was a towering thing, heavier by far than the preceding
patterns.
Together, the Primaris Space Marines bounded forwards, outpacing their older counterparts and defying
the cratered mudscape to close with their enemy...

No he didn't. The damn thing had him and every other primaris practically on their asses until a Librarian countered the tolling of the bell.

"A light penetrated the dismal world that Felix inhabited. He lifted his head from the ground on his ageweakened
neck and saw the glowing figure of Codicier Maxim striding through the grey, his blue armour
as pure as sapphire, the green shoulder pad of his Aurora Chapter insignia as bright as virgin forest
leaves.
‘Stand firm! Pay no heed! It is but a poison of the warp!’ bellowed Maxim. His voice strained as he
spoke. The crystal rods and tracks of his aegis hood glowed with fierce counter-wychfire.
The bell tolled again. Maxim’s image flickered. He approached Felix.
‘Captain! You must finish the herald, or we shall fail.’
Felix raised a shaking hand, the last fragments of rusty armour falling from his fingers. Maxim grasped
him arm, and suddenly he was armoured, young and full of the power of the Emperor. The grey world
crumbled as if made of dust. He was in the feasting hall again.
‘Go, now!’ said Maxim. ‘I shall shield you.’
The bell rang. Felix took the psychic impact with a grunt.
While the Primaris Space Marines were reeling from the bell’s dolorous effects, the Death Guard
renewed their attack, regrouping while reinforcements made their way in from some of its many entrances.
He had to act now."

Holding aloft his power sword, he leapt over the edge of the balustrade, landing in the middle of his
foes. He recovered well and barged past a Traitor Space Marine, desperate to slay the bell-toller before
Maxim’s power gave out. Warriors came at him but he smote them down, crushing the chest of one with a
blow from his gauntlet, eviscerating a second with a reverse cut of his power sword.
Heart, heart, head – the mantra for combat against other Adeptus Astartes, doubly important when
fighting the resilient Death Guard.
Despite their toughness, Felix cut them down economically, guarding his movements against excessive
flourishes that may expose him. A brief burst from his boltstorm gauntlet mashed the head of a bloated
giant whose armour joints sported fringes of tentacles. The traitor fell to his knees, his additional limbs
spasming and falling limp.

The bellringer was a metre away. Felix was taller than the traitor, but with far less mass; the bellringer was a swollen horror, bloated with unnatural disease and fell power. His cracked armour strained to contain his bulk. Diseased horns sprouted from his back, the bell hanger but one of them, and they were part of his body. A filthy tabard hung from his armour, yellowed by smoke pouring from a censer at his waist. Felix leapt onto the corpse of the tentacled Space Marine, using the backpack as a springboard to launch himself at his foe. The bellringer loosed a shot from his plasma pistol, and a globular sun howled past the captain’s ear. Felix let fly with his boltstorm gauntlet, the shots ringing the bell, then brought his power sword up and back for a mighty downwards cut. The blade’s powered edge sank deep into the traitor’s thick armour, bringing forth a wash of black blood and a ringing grunt, more bell chime than voice. The traitor staggered, his motion setting the great bell on his back into another swing. Soundwaves pummelled Felix, piercing the psychic protection of Maxim. His auditory dampers burst. The scent of fried electronics filled his mask, and his ears bled. A second, smaller bell hung from the traitor’s hand. He swung it like a weapon at Felix’s head. Felix recovered quickly, his Primaris physique, aided by the Codicier’s psychic might, purging the great bell’s effects from his mind, and he swung his power sword, cleaving the bellringer’s hand from his body. Blood, thick and slow as tar, congealed at the stump. Felix levelled his sword, and rammed it as hard as he could at the traitor’s chest.

A sparking furrow split the armour as the point scraped across the rounded chest-plate, setting the traitor’s tabard aflame. It bit near the bellringer’s armpit, and penetrated the metal to the rotten meat beneath. Felix put all his weight onto the sword, and pushed it through his enemy. Metal squealed on metal. The disruption field cracked and banged. Stinking smoke wisped from the wound. The traitor roared, and flailed once again with his smaller bell. Felix released his sword and punched hard with his gauntlet, caving in the traitor’s helmet. As the bellringer fell, Felix yanked his sword free and swung, cutting through the bell’s supporting horn. It fell with a muted clank, and was silent."

So, to my point, he certainly didn't do it with ease. He and many other marines were fucked and he was half fucked while fighting.

As for what's special about him, he had command thrust on him from day 1 and rolled with it and rose to the occasion. He forged friendships amongst the Unnumbered Sons that saw the various inherent battle doctrines work seamlessly.

He sure as hell didn't seem like an asshole, if anything he was one of the more polite marines.

>he's flawless and uninteresting.
His flaws and interesting character traits come from his uncertainty. He has concerns and questions about the Primarch, the Emperor, the Imperium and himself. Being given administrative roles is important to grooming leaders. And being a skilled combatant in Gravis armour with a power sword and a power fist means you're going to be pretty lethal. Does that make him special? No. I don't see why you think being a good fighter is a negative.
As for Guilliman grappling with choices and decisions, that's going to happen because it's his book. Felix is just another cog in the imperial war machine, his decisions and actions are smaller, but equally as important. He has room to grow and I like that.
