Copied from last thread, would humbly request thoughts on my AdMech army as someone just getting into 40k (with a bit of knowledge of 5th ed):


Gonna see if I can fit some Adeptus Sororitas in the remaining points because I'd like to field some of them as well if possible.

Managed to get a friend back into 40k, and other friend now interested in picking up a starter pack and playing a match just at that level to see if they like it.

Depends on your meta but err on higher volume of fire. It's great this edition.

Also I don't think so. IIRC the swooping hawk ability is used at the ens of the movement PHASE, fire and fade just lets you make an out of order move after shooting.

>2017 men want to fuck traps

>> No.57118392

Asking again due to no reply last thread for some advice on this list, or where better to go. Still thinking going with a unit of Raveners (love the model) a Neurothrope, a unit of 3xVenomthropes at least, rest is whatever. Though thinking heavily to go with a Barbed Hierodule, it has really grown on me in the past few hours.

With Christmas past now and having gotten $190 USD in spending cash and a Tyranid Start Collecting box (the Genestealer one) I am pondering on where to go next. I don't want to over commit (funny to say with Genestealers being as good as they are) to Genestealers, already have a Biovore (need to pick up two more), a Red Terror, and a box of 12 Hormagaunts. I am kind of thinking of a list along the lines of:

Battalion Detachment
Hive Fleet Jormungadr
Broodlord, Maw-Claws, Adaptive Biology, The Horror, Smite, Warlord
Neurothrope, Catalyst
20xGenestealers, 5xAcidmaws, 4xFlesh Hooks
3xRipperswarms, 3xSpinemaws
3xTyranid Warriors, 3xBone Swords, 2xDeathspitters, 1xVenom Cannon
1xThe Red Terror
6xRavengers, 6xScything Talons, 6xRending Claws, 6xDeathSpitters
1xTrygon Prime, Adrenal Glands, Toxin Sacs, Biostatic Rattle
Fortification Network
Hive Fleet Jormungandr
Sporocyst, 5xBarbed Strangler, Spore Node
Super Heavy Auxiliary
Hive Fleet Jormungandr
Barbed Heirodule, 2xBio-Cannon, Massive Scything Talons

Thinking this is what I want to build towards, hits 2k points even and has a bit of everything nids have to offer. Plus most of them (except for Genestealers, though they are growing on me) are models I am fond of. Undecided on Barbed Heirodule or Scythed Heirodule, but, Barbed seems better due to the lack of fuck you and your tanks fire power the list has outside of it.

>> No.57118553

Yes, as it states "as they fly over a unit in the MOVEMENT phase" and though this move follows all rules for the movement phase it is still during your shooting phase. If it wasn't you would instantly destroy all of your fliers whenever you used Fire and Fade as they would end a movement phase without having moved.

Q: Can a Swooping Hawk unit use Fire and Fade to move

They're very good. Take Catachans or Mordians with a command squad bearing a standard and you get Ld. 9 troops. Take certain characters and that can be boosted to Ld. 10 or 11 which is as close to fearless as you can get. Just remember to mob up, keep the important weapons closest to the Ld. buffers, and spam those orders like no tomorrow.

Rough Riders aren't in the codex but you can take them from the index if you like and its legal according to the community site. But better to take Krieger Riders so you can have MOAR ORDERS!

Just make sure everything's painted. A painted footguard army looks cool. An unpainted footguard army looks nauseating. No. Disgraceful! Only those truly dedicated to guard and willing to paint every day should be allowed to footguard without being glared at by the entire store.

Hellhounds are cool, and Bane Wolfs now have assault melta cannons which are neat but not particularly powerful. The chemical variant you take to kill mechs and monsters but really the hellhound with track guards is better.

Tyranid shooting is good enough and Genestealers are effective enough at CC that it's not a great idea to go so thoroughly melee in everything in your list.

The Barbed Heirodule is pretty much carrying your only decent anti-tank/anti-monster.

Trygons are no good at taking them out, they're another anti-infantry unit which like 80% of your list is already dedicated to. Trading out the Trygon Prime and the Red Terror for a couple of Dakkafexes (cysts, senses, spitters, HVC) will give you some more ranged punch.

It's hard to look at the list and identify what you can and can't do without, I imagine the Red Terror was included because you like the model, possibly the same for the Trygon Prime, but those are the only things I see that can be eliminated without breaking your force org or the balance of unit roles.

Alright, didn't realize Chapter Approved was newer updated than the codex. Just going off of the PDF in the OP link, mentions it had 1.0 errata, so I assumed it was the most up to date. Not sure why I kept the combuster on their shoulders rather than another phosphor blaster though.

Also the Knight is in there because I have a massive hardon for their design. Even if I don't end up using one for my army I'll probably buy a model anyway.

What? There's a points cost right next to the Datasmith name, and it was calculated into the total (unless I missed that one specific number). And yeah as mentioned above I'll check the updated values.

I think it's mostly your formatting, you really don't need to list every single piece of equipment unless it's a special weapon.

Also data tethers are kinda shit on vanguard, they don't really benefit must from getting a +2 to hit over a +1 and you can only use the imperative once a turn anyways so having it on both squads is a waste imo, and the morale re-roll is worthless on a 5 man squad.

Or- crazy idea- you can move forward and update lore, but only so far as it does right by the tone and themes of the setting and balances the core ideas that setting pins itself around?

That’s why seeing someone win in a my little pony style magical victory is fucking retarded in 40k, or why yoda using the force to destroy Jedi knowledge is beyond abhorrent in Star Wars. Because it violates the very core of the setting.

I just bought Sons of the Hydra and I feel like I got tricked. I expected an alpha legion warband and to maybe learn something about the legion or maybe even about Alpharius, and for their motives to be unclear and mysterious.

Instead, the protagonists of the story are explicitly not alpha legionaries, but renegades from other chapters who have joined with the alpha legions. They are not closet loyalists, nor are they sneakily working to support the imperium while disagreeing the Emperor's vision, but they are incredibly devout loyalists who do everything in the Emperor's name. Additionally, I haven't read anything else by this author, but his writing seems lackluster, his descriptions uninspired and his dialogue bland.

I wanted to read a story about traitors and mystery, and instead got a story about loyalists "purging the weak" while wearing green and blue.

I don't think there is a single alpha legion book like that. Its always shit, either some terrible viewpoint character, or just poorly done in general. Shroud of night is ok, but they are just underhand renegades afraid of kharn.

I just read the extract, a bit ago and already its giving me viewpoint characters like the callidus trannyfu.

The truth is no one at BL has the talent to do an excellent alpha legion book. Even dan abnett couldn't do it.

I bought it. Occam was the character; the author seemed quite bad at naming things, and tried way too hard to work the "serpentine" and "reptilian"-like descriptions into everything.. The fortress-monastery of one of the chapters in the books was called the "Bas-Silica" for Christ's sake, presumably because it was built on a sand and salt world.
