Asking again from the last thread:

I'm not sure if I should take Abaddon or a Lord/Prince with Exalted Champion for this list:

HQ: Sorcerer (98 pts)
Elites: 2x 5 Noise Marines (2x Blastmaster, 4x Sonic blaster) (206 pts)
Troops: 2x Cultists (80 pts)
Troops: 10 CSM (130 pts)
Transport: 2x Rhino (2x Combi-bolter, 2x Havoc launcher) (166 pts)
Heavy Support: 2x 5 Havocs (2x Flamer, 4x Lascannon, 2x Heavy Bolter) (268 pts)
Heavy Support: 2x Predator (2x Twin lascannon, 4x Heavy Bolter) (320 pts)

Every combination will result in 7 command points.
Would Abaddon be the bigger force multiplier with the re-roll for all hits and automatically passing morale? On the other hand there would be a re-roll of 1 with lord/prince and re-roll all to wound in cc.

The Tau get away with it because they're Tau so anything they do is automatically smart and brave and better than your stupid poo-poo guardsmen GARY!

But in all seriousness, the real reason is "It looks cooler than seeing squads properly scattered and in cover taking pot shots from 100 meters away." Which is the same reason the Guardsmen do it in their pictures, and the Space Marines in their pictures (You often see half a company in a single picture clumped up like ninepins which is insane!) and Eldar in their pictures.

The only army that actually fights like this are Orks. Even the Valhallan Human Wave has more in common with IRL human waves (that is, entire companies of infantry providing cover fire for entire OTHER companies to move up, who then take cover and provide cover for the overwatch companies to catch up. Thus producing an effect like a dozen unusually accurate machine guns) than you actually see in the cool art.

>> No.56836683

>There must be some demand for non-metal models especially since the new codex came out.
There is, but GW only judges demand based on how many models a faction is currently selling. This is the reason why armies with shitty models don't get updated. GW thinks that no one cares about that since no one is buying the shitty models GW made for them.

>using 2nd ed cadians as a base.
That's the things. Cadians ever getting changed from their 2e perfection was biggest travesty in all of 40k. They lost all the magic they had when they jumped from metal to plastic. At least the Catachan Command Squad box is decent. Plastic Cadians don't have a single good looking model imo.

>> No.56836690

idk what your havocs are doing. I hope you aren't mixing flamers with the lascannon squad and if possible I would drop basic flamers altogether for more heavy bolters. Normal flamers are crap against anything worth shooting. I don't see why you need 2 rhinos either, the points from one of them would be better spent on better havoc guns or something else. Reroll all hits is cool but it would only really be useful if he camped back with the preds and havocs so if you don't mind that then go with him

+1 to-wound and +1 damage on all 3 predators for 1CP is ridiculously good value. Plus, remember that as you add more predators to your army they become effectively tankier, because your opponent does not have an endless supply of anti armor. You actually want to stack up as much of the same level of toughness as you can against a well rounded list, because that forces them to field options that are otherwise not useful.

Assassins would also be a good addition.I used to run something like that too back in 2004. I would put the Inquisitor and retinue in a Land Raider so they could jump out and beat stuff up. It was a blast, but not very good. I've been meaning to recreate it here in 8th.

- Terminator Inquisitor as the Inquisitor Lord
- Normal Inquisitor being trained and groomed by the Inquisitor Lord

>But a lot of us came into the setting when Chaos Undivided meant "Chaos Undecided" as the tedious meme goes, and we think that things like Daemon Princes of Chaos Undivided were "the way it was" and anything since then has changed. That's... debatable. Chaos Undivided, as a concept of several gods uniting for a brief time to make Shit Go Down, is a relatively rare thing. It's *why* Be'lakor is special. It's why Abaddon is a big deal. It's the Mark of Chaos Ascendant. That's not just some honour badge or a banner you carry, it's the warp itself crying out to do your merest bidding. Horus didn't even have the Mark of Chaos Ascendant. That's how rare it is.

I'd say it looks pretty good so far, though obviously it's a bit too dark at present without any highlights, but it makes for a good base option. As you said though, the blue does seem a bit too dark. However, it's hard to say if it would be better if the sleeve was a different colour and the carapace remained that shade of blue. Perhaps try changing the sleeve colours first?

Or, alternately, keep the sleeves that shade of blue and put some purple into that blue carapace to tie it in a bit closer to the flesh of the model. That would tie all the colours together nicely I feel.

Yeah that could work if you want to keep the carapace blue, I'm sure it'll look better with highlights when you get round to them. I'd definitely consider trying a different sleeve colour though. Perhaps a different tone of an existing colour on the model, or just something neutral like grey.

Either way, the primary colours are strong enough that it'll probably look good whatever option you go with.

Show some objective measures that the majority of people who read the book liked it. And don't link goodreads or some shit like that.
And no, his outright states that how he portrayed emps may not be how emps really is. Which raises the question: "if it's not, then why fucking write it, if it is, then why say it may not be?"
It's a copout for the fact that he can't stop wanking over chaos and made the emperor look like an idiot, but rather than actually bother to actually do the emperor justice he'll just continue to do as he does and then deflect any criticism with "if you don't like it than just don't read it"

Anon, the point is that the Emperor is different for everyone who meets him. He's a reflection of their own priorities, thoughts and emotions. That is how he is so charismatic and, well, godly to so many. Land sees a logical, rational, non emotional being, like himself for instance, but he's very different at other times.

All of the major book sellers and sites have a majority of positive reviews. Typically if a large amount of people dislike something they don't rate it very well and it doesn't sell very well. If you don't want to accept evidence then produce some contrary evidence. Also he says in the post that the characters in the book all have limited understandings of the situation so reading the book as having any objective truth about the emperor is dumb when it is told through several unreliable narrators on purpose
