So I just got a Stormraven for my Black Templars and I'm wondering about how to kit it out.

I considered running a 10 man Crusader squad plus two characters for support, and an ironclad dreadnought, but that would be about 700 points for transport + content.

Now I'm considering the stormraven, a 10 model crusader squad(5 initiates, 5 neophytes), and the Ironclad. Is that a good amount, or should I cut back further?

Does anyone else think that removing initiative stat was a mistake? I get that it made assault phase hard for some armies, but that could gave been helped somewhat by for example, giving dedicated low initiative melee units like ork boys etc, a boost to their initiative in combat if they successfully charged the opponent. Not a massive boost that would have made them faster than genestealers, but enough that they would hit most basic foes they face first if they charged them successfully.
This sort of initiative with modifiers system would imo be better than both the old one where initiative was generally static and only affected by psychic powers and some wargear etc, and the current one where there is no initiative at all and plague zombies fight as fast as slaanesh deamons.
It would also bring back the utility of lash whips.

No. What advantage does the Initiative system have over the Charge-fights-first-alternating system? You mentioned a possible 'fix', but not why you should want to use that system in the first place, especially when your fix would make calculating and keeping track of initiative even more tedious.

>> No.56564867

Is it worth taking 3 Blight Haulers in a unit for the +1 to hit?

It's relatively easy to stop the bonus, just focus fire and kill 1. Also they have to be in coherency which makes maximising its aura awkward.

They're faster than other death guard units. You can use that extra movement to start them in a clump then scoot them into being a barrier for your troops.

>> No.56565271


They get to fight first but if the enemy has units that charged or has similar special rules then you alternate starting with the player who's turn it is.

So if zombies charged demonettes the player could quite rightfully fight first with the zombies.

its sad because it works really well for balance.

like you can give a buff or debuff for 1/6 chance of improvement, but you can make it for something that was already low so you're effectively doubling your chances. which means you balance around which things you give to what.

like rerolling wounds might be awesome with this army, but if everything is stupidly high str already it doesn't mean shit.

the sad thing though is that you can see where the limits are and they're stupidly constrict.

you can really feel GW is trying to destroy any wombo combo you're trying to come up with.
you basically just find the very few units that peak over the contriction and spam them.
