I'm looking at my Blood Angels in light of the new codex preview and I'm debating between tacticals and intercessors and I just don't see the reason to take tacticals as a Blood Angel.

Yes, BA tacticals get a heavy flamer, woo.

However you're paying 17 additional points to put it on a 1W model with a 3+ save.

A heavy flamer has an 8'' range and does D6 S5 AP-1 D1 auto hitting shots.

I'm sorry but that's just not a good enough reason for me when I can take a squad of intercessors who have rapid fire 30'' AP-1 rifles and are easier to keep alive with a narthecium and the new ancient banner giving them a 5+++

Neither of these Stratagems are failures to use the Keyword system. Fire Frenzy is a Stratagem that affects a single unit, and so it names that unit. Daemonforge affects units with like ten different Keywords, so it uses a shorthand notation defined within the rules.

No. That's not a "Helbrute." This is clear, people just act retarded because they don't want to face the truth.

No, you need to stop being retarded and face the truth. The Stratagem rules are in that section. None of the powers require a "Chaos Space Marine" target.

I never said he was worthless (he's better than Crowe), but his defensive stance is. He already has a 2+ save, so hordes will wear him down just fine. He might live longer against big dick weapons but honestly with such a low wound count he's going to be dead after one or two failed saves anyway, and if you aren't buffing his sword, he isn't going to kill anything and will start failing saves sooner or later.

2CP to give him a 2++ for a turn, under those circumstances, just isn't worth it unless he's somehow contesting an objective that will win your opponent the game if scored..

No they don't. You pay premium points for a T4, 3+ save platform - it dies easily.

Compared to what we used to be in 6th/7th I take it as a buff, I mean I remember when we got rolled back into the codex and then ignored for 2 editions while everyone else got buffs out the ass and formation detachments and we got jack and squat, that still hurts.

Do we need buffs? Fuck yeah, Vows as Auras to buff units would be the quickest and easiest solution but we also need a real close combat unit that can wreck stuff.

Posted in the old thread...

EC fag here, I am trying to branch out and try new strategies since I think I have a good one for competitive games.

I normally rely on a 10 man plasma terminator + termylord drop, burn 3CP for VotLW and endless cacophony.

That has won me a lot (for me, i've only played 11) games.

Not really. If you were already wounding on 3+ for any reason, the push up to 2 is highly substantial.
Now consider that Primaris are S4 A2. Ten Intercessors will wipe almost all of a full-strength Infantry Squad in a single phase (with a good chance of morale finishing the job) which sounds and is very underwhelming, but is great by default ranged Marine standards. Reivers and, dare I say it, Assault Marines, suddenly become reasonable anti-horde options, too.

The Repressor basically made the choice between Immolator and Repressor relevant. Not exactly a nerf.

Also they are good because they have all the good things from marines (BS and Sv) and all the goodness of IG (cheap and easy to spam)

Not counting CA you could put 20 meltas with an effective range of 36”+2D6” turn one for less than a 1000 points. The Repressor is also decent enough against horde when shooting and melee.
With the nerf it is about 1200~
Hell your basic troop could spam 3 meltas or 3 SB for basically nothing. While the Immolator is a 24”+D6” effective range double heavy Flamer that can always advance and shoot for 103 points

In other words big stuff are no problem versus SoB and do not suffer much against horde due to how easy it is to get anti horde with the mandatory units

Do you rather pick a 5 man squad of Rangers or Vanguard, assuming blank with no extras. Why? Personally I like S4 on the Rangers a bit more. Also almost double the shooting range feels good.

Where does it say that? Like, where in the rules does it say I can't equip my dude with a two-handed maul or two-handed sword?

Source: 7th edition rulebook. This is the only guidance we have on the appearance of a power weapon; just because it says it's a maul doesn't mean the weapon actually has to be a maul. Anything blunt but powered counts as a maul, pic related. A thunder hammer on CSM would count as a maul, shit, in Space Marine the CSM equivalent to the hammer WAS a daemon maul.

i think even with the drop in chapter approved they are garbage. they dont do any damage and cant take that much damage either. tankbustas die super fast but they just wreck tanks left and right so if you protect them with a trukk+kustom force field they generally survive long enough to make back their points.

trukks are overcosted by like 25pts so i would only ever use trukks for tankbustas/burnas. or maybe even meganobz now that they lowered the cost for power klaws.

i dont like bikers. they were amazing in 7th because of jink but without it they just die in droves. 2 wounds sure but over charging plasma guns, which is like the most common special weapon in the game, just completely counters them. and they are 27pts a pop.

deff dreads are like bad dreadnoughts. the good dreadnoughts i have seen are the dakka ones, two lascannon/missile launcher ones. well orks cant do that so you just have to slowly walk up the table to chop at stuff. they almost always die and they arent that tough.

burnas are pretty good actually. they show up in most of the ork tournament lists i have seen. kombi-skorchas cost 19pts per guy. so 36pts for a nob with one.

that is a lot for a 2w 4+ save model. i like kombi skorchas on nob unit leaders and my warboss though.

Fair, I see them more as the ultimate glass cannon then anything else; 5 guys with nothing but sanguinor or blood boil and a chaplan one-shot a baneblade, which is amazing for only 165 points. Only thing is congrats, you’ve killed them, only problem is not all guns are on you.

He was primarily using soul burst on the wraithguard and the Dark Reapers and we were playing the FAQ where its SB 1 action of each type per turn and no SB in the enemy turn.

They do but the Wave Serpent the Wraithguard go in don't and he conceals the Reapers pretty consistently.

Replace the termie-star with obliterators, cultists and noise marines. Having Sonic Dreads is the only reason I'd consider going EC at all and to be fair, it is better to take detachments of other CSM stuff for their bonuses.

Consider that you can upgrade your lord to a daemon prince with the points you would spend on the smith and it becomes a clear choice. For me anyway it is.

Just the five of them with BB/astorath/sanguinor wipe mortarion in a single go, dealing just north of 18.5 wounds. Before anyone asks, just the five wombo absolutelt merc guilliman; with only astorath, they kill Bobby G outright, so all the crazy added stuff only adds flame to the fire. Magnus is a little tougher, since with the 3++/reroll 1’s only .22 of each wound goes through, doing only 13 wounds. Better way to fight maggie than BB/Astorath/sanguinor is just more DC, get 10 with astorath and BB/Sang alone and you’ll finish him off. Though honeslty it’s just better to kill as much as possible then wait and use the fight twice strategem imo

I honestly just try to charge shit on the first turn so I can stop things from shooting at me. I take baleflamers and if my opponent has flyers I try to chop em but against other lists the goal is just to shut down shooting as quick as I can so I can keep shooting and he can't.

yeah, you need to eliminated yvraine as soon as possible to drop that extra soulburst. (somehow) which means that the dark reapers lose it, unless they're witin 7" of your models, in which case they have other problems.

but putting things in transports or having cheap screens would help as well, as (reapers aside) all his other high powered stuff is short range. and its not like reapers are *that* hard to kill

hey, the OP of every one of these threads has links to so many MEGA folders. The very first one should be something like "all 8e rules".

From there, use basic reading comprehension to reach the folder for "codexes" and hit Imperial Guard's 8e codex.

I am new, why is that bad?

>> No.56647526

I don't think that anon knows how handy most of those HQ are, and CSM have some really nice stratagems so you didn't go wrong aiming for a CP bump. desu your main problem is that predators are soft and if I was playing you then it probably wouldn't make it to turn 2, but it fits in your list well and will probably do some work if you don't let it get targeted by their whole team

>> No.56647567

oh and your melee noise marines will probably die before they get any use. I guess my other gripe with your list is that marine equivalent units (MEQ) are just so easy to kill that they need transportation to do anything serious which is why I never run chaos icons on mine since they are already going to struggle to pay for themselves

>> No.56647569

What would you put over the predator? The LR is the only other LC platform and it's soooo expensive

I felt like I was lacking in melee, should they just be a sonic squad also?

>> No.56647591

I haven't played 8e but from what I see HQ spam not worth the CP.

For the most part those HQ's are going to be useless, maybe the Sorceror will do like a thing, and maybe the Daemon Prince will kill like a guy, but thats about as far as I see them. The HQ's will simply barely get anything done. They are a "tax" in points on your army, costing much more than they're worth. They will rarely pay themselves off.

Youre focusing your Anti Armor in Heavy Support, i'm not sold ont he Chaos Predator or Vindicator as they're both helllla expensive.

The main issue with the list is I see no real way to actually kill things or deal with armor, which is a pretty huge problem. Your Cultists are going to be nice little fluffy shields, but you have such a low quantity of noise marines (8).

If you cut the whole Spearhead detachment and spread the HS across other detachments to lose the 76 point tax it would buy you more models, I'd also deeply consider losing one of the Battalion Detachments. I'd probably kick the Chaos Lord and Exalted Champion.

Again, I haven't played 8e yet, but I'm 99% sure having actual useful units and not 600 point of tax (read, 30% of your army is almost useless) would be much better than CP.

It is very expensive but the increased survivability is nice. If you run heavy bolts and lascannons on 2 predators that would be better than 1 with 4 lasc on it just to help spread the fire out a bit, and heavy bolters can dick over a lot of low toughness/bad save armies. Havocs are your other option and as EC they can really shine with the fire twice strat. I run squads of those with 3-4 lascannons and they do pretty well. Just deploy in cover so they have a chance.
>>56647623 I feel the same way so I guess see if footslogging is worse for you. noise marines get full fire profile at 24" which makes footslogging more favorable but it is tough to do successfully

>> No.56647669

rhinos aren't very durable but they're incredibly cheap. When you have so few marines (literally 8) you can't afford to have their efficiency hampered by having to walk.

His 8 marines would have been the easiest and most cost effective threat to deal with first. Rhinos are not hard to kill, and those are a laaaarge amount of his effective shooting.

If I take out the vindicator and the warpsmith I lose 1 CP but can probably get a rhino?

>> No.56647721

I would swap the vindicator for a rhino and a havoc squad (you will need to trim in some other places but it will probably all fit). That gives you something for the choppy boys, more lascannons for cheap, and you keep the CP

Battlescribe is convoluted - not that it should stop you since 40k is also convoluted. But Battlescribe is also out of date depending on which Army you're building. I can tell you now they haven't updated the unit prices for the Guard codex.

Stop taking Plasma Pistols on units with no way to get within range. Exalted Champion is a waste with one melee unit. The fuck do you expect that melee Noise Marine squad to do other than die pathetically in midfield without ever actually accomplishing anything? Warpsmith ain't worth it.

I need another HQ for the 2nd battallion, unsure what to go with. I feel an exChampion is good but he has no entourage to roll with. A dark apostle can help the cultists, but is it worth it? Only other thing would be another sorcerer but they are pricy.
