To this day I'm reluctant to field stock miniatures for anything other than the most basic infantry.

Modelling has always been my favorite part of the hobby. I miss the days when the lore and artwork was made in a way that inspired you to make your own creations, rather than being a list of box sets you can buy. These days when I read through a codex or something it reads like the should be a tm after every other word.

Same. I still have my converted flash gitz, based on a text description, before there was any artwork of them

Even when I'm using a multi pose kit I'll try and at least make the poses look unique. And as you say, with basic troops I don't really convert them but I'll spend a lot of time on the posing and the basing so they don't just look like "someone else's dudes"

I have the death guard side of dark Imperium here and though the sculpts are cool and all, I can't find love for it because every poxwalker pose is duplicated and I'm not a fan of all the tentacles and horns... But they're absolute chaff, so I don't want to spend time converting each one.

Theyre not bad. They fill a fast attack spot which is good for Brigades - tyranid stratagems are expensive. I like to use them in a Kraken detachment, deep striking them into play alongside a flyrant.

They're great at charging heavy weapon platforms to tie them down and prevent OW on the flyrant (1 wound models don't care about being hit by lascannons), then retreating, then shooting (fly), then charging something else (kraken) to tie it down. If you bring them in squads of 20 you can easily surround non-flying enemies and prevent them from retreating

Tyranids can do anything ever other army can do just as well or better -- psychics, deep strike, alpha strike, horde, assault, shooting, etc.

AM was top tier when the codex came out, but has been slowly chipped away by the FAQ and chapter approved. It's still top tier, but barely.

People are sleeping on the Admech codex because the models are mostly shit. It can go toe to toe with any other list out there when built correctly.

As a GK player, I can attest that they don't stack up on their own. the GMDK is the only worthwhile unit, but you need to bring a lot of other support, probably Astra Militarum.

They're very strong (maybe the strongest army in the game) but do have some notable weaknesses.

Big monsters (except the tyrant and maleceptor) don't have invuln saves so theyre very weak to anti-tank weapons.

Infantry is very easy to kill. T3 and 6+ save is paper-thin and melts to any kind of high volume fire.

Reliant on hit debuffs or deploying off the table to stay alive, so auto-hit weapons like flamers are really good

Stratagems are expensive and they don't have a good way to generate command points. This forces them to take 2x battalions and brigades, which leads to...

Cheap battalions/brigade slots means lots of drops. You can force them to go first and overextend then react to their positioning.

Psychic powers are mostly defensive or support

They can zone out enemy deep strikes with spores but it doesn't do much to stop deep strike shooting on their flanks.

Their best shooting units rely on being stationary

I doubt a Librarian can get a 2++, as Sanctuary has specifically been FAQ'd to not buff invulnerable saves beyond 3++. A Brother-captain with a warding stave and that strategem does get a 2++ in close combat.
And any character can get the 5+++ relic armour.

>it gets +2 to deny, making it really useful against the inevitable magnus lists, especially now that smite is getting nerfed
Only when within 12'' and if Magnus is already that close, you are having more serious problems than having a better chance at denying psychic powers.

And the point is that a Brother-Captain already has better stats than a Librarian, whilst only being able to cast a mere single psychic power less. The buff aura is just the cherry on top of that. And even with the added stormbolter the Brotherhood-Captain is 5 points cheaper (but only if you don't give the Librarian a stormbolter for some weird reason)

Hey guys here's the first model I've ever painted. The photo doesn't really capture the dirty look as much as real life but some feedback would be great. Also, if anyone has a suggestion how to keep the model darker yet having that nurgle dirt / rot look we all shoot for I would really appreciate it. I can't seem to achieve that without the green getting too dark. Thanks!

Also, I fucked up and sprayed the death guard green spray without priming first on about 40 models... I also want to convert 16 of the pox walkers even tho they have been sprayed.

He's got the authors backing him. If Carnac was just spouting baseless bullshit he'd be easier to just ignore, but when he says retarded shit like "Chaos already won and Abaddon is the rightful heir to the galaxy!" he's got BL and GW at his back going "yes, that's right".

>zoanthropes are painfully bad, nurothropes are literally better cheaper, and can hide from shooting
With the smite changes you want quality over quantity. A unit of 3+ zoans does 2d3 smite damage. Not bad for a 3++ unit.
They're not an auto-include but they're decent.

Rippers are a god tier unit.
33 points. For a troop choice. That can deep strike directly onto any objective.
Situational stratagems to ruin morale tests for enemies - this has been relevant more than a few times when playing tactical objectives and drawing cards to make enemies fail morale.
Rippers win games.

Sporocysts are also very good. They're like a distraction carnifex that you can drop immediately into play to deny deep strikes after deployment and immediately start spawning mines. You can't just ignore them, but if you're wasting heavy weapons on them then you're going to lose to the REAL threats shortly after.

They fit into their own detachment so you can use whatever hive fleet you want for them. If you make them Jormungandr they get +1 save, or you can make them Kronos to reroll hit1 and their spores can activate the kronos stratagem.

I want to get into the hobby for the first time.

Since I wanted to create salamanders army I decided to buy Dark Imperium, as it seem to have good price to content ratio. (I can buy it for like 100$) It'll also allow me to start playing, maybe even getting my friend to play, as they already like 40k, though similarly to me don't collect atm. Plus all the rulebooks and such.

The only thing that keeps me back though is that I have no fucking idea what do I need to start painting and maybe modeling.

Do I have to buy official GW paints or are the replacements good enough?
What accessories do I need (brushes, knives etc.)?
What exact paints do I need to do a Salamanders?
Can I buy transfer sheets or something like that separately (as DI apparently doesn't have them for Salamanders)?
Are there any good sets of those things I'd need?

A lot of people shit on GW hobby products but I think they're great for beginners.

>Do I have to buy official GW paints or are the replacements good enough?
GW paints are good quality, but you don't get the best value out of them since the bottles are relatively small.
It's not a concern unless you finish the whole bottle. A beginner like you doesn't need to worry about that sort of thing.

>What accessories do I need (brushes, knives etc.)?
You'll need clippers to get the models off the sprue and probably a mold line remover or knife
For brushes you should probably be fine with getting just a single M Layer brush.

>What exact paints do I need to do a Salamanders?
Check the citadel paint app for a colour guide

The Start Collecting box is decent for spess meens. If you want Primaris marines then the best choices are Dark Imperium and the Easy To Build boxes.

All of the recent Battleforce boxes are good value.

Welcome anon. I'm not a marine player but I do like salamanders, they have a nice story and they're simple enough colours to paint.

>Do I have to buy official GW paints or are the replacements good enough?
The replacements are good enough, and you get more paint from other companies for less money, but you won't be able to follow GW's guides and you'll spend a lot of time and frustration trying to find exact matches to every single GW paint you'd need. I'd stick with GW for now whilst you're getting started and your motivation is high.

>What accessories do I need (brushes, knives etc.)?
For the dark Imperium kit... Brushes, clippers, plastic glue. They're the essentials. Don't buy clippers and glue from GW, they're overpriced. Brushes at GW are good quality but higher priced again. However their painting system uses their brushes and again you may find that a benefit.

>What exact paints do I need to do a Salamanders?
Download the GW painting app, it's free and will tell you. Or, watch the warhammer TV episode about painting sallies. That app is great though seriously

>Can I buy transfer sheets or something like that separately (as DI apparently doesn't have them for Salamanders)?
Never looked for salamanders transfers but there must be some on eBay from a past edition. Or you could just git gud with your freehand!

>Are there any good sets of those things I'd need
There are sets but as always, the convenience is reflected in the price. Better off getting the tools separately. As for paints, GW do paint sets for a lot of factions, but they're smaller pots so even if they did one for salamanders you'd run out of paint before finishing the DI box

>> No.57267292


Oh yeah I agree, the quality is fine, but the price is too high. Clippers can be found elsewhere that do just as good a job for half the price, and the glue does give nice control but it's literally the same shape and type of bottle as a competitors plastic glue, which again is cheaper, leading me to think it's just a rebranded product for GW with a price hike.

Ok so according to the paint app the base colour is waaagh flesh, and unfortunately they don't do that in a spray can, which could have saved you a lot of time.

There's a company called The Army Painter, and they do spray colour primers. They have one called Greenskin, which looks like a close match, but I'm unsure how close just from the picture. I've used their yellow colour primer before with fine results but other reviews online say they've had issues, so try at your own risk. Potentially an enormous timesaver though.

Otherwise it's waaagh flesh with a small or medium base brush :)

Abaddon being a pushover is merely a meme given that he tried countless times trying to herd the horde of cats that is the Chaos Space Marine legions into hitting one single target, which has led to many a failure. Back during the Horus Heresy most of the traitors were still sane for the most part, but after existing for 10k years in realspace or being trapped in the warp you lose most semblance of command. In many cases different Chaos Space Marine groups decided to go fuck off in a particular direction and wreck havoc instead of attacking Cadia. It's like a less humorous version of Orks.

Your mathhammer sucks ass then
4.5 average s hots (2d6 pick highest) x 0.7689 (3+ to hit reroll 1) x 0.7689 (wound on 3+ reroll 1) x0.5 (4+ invuln) x2 (d3 damage_ x3 Basilisks=7.98 wounds a turn.

Above average rolls but 14 is easy doable. Doing it in two rounds is reliable.

>> No.57267974

Okay so each basilisk does an average of 4.47 shots. 3 bassies = 13.41 shots. 2/3rds of those hit = 8.94 hits. Then you consider 2.23 of the original 13.41 are 1s so get to reroll and you get another 2.23 x 2/3 = 1.49 hits out of that. 8.94 + 1.48 hits = 10.42 hits.

wound on 3s rerolling 1s. 10.42 x 2/3 = 6.95. And with rerolling 1s you get 8.11 wounds.

Then with a 4++ that's 4 wounds...

I was assuming it was a hellforged leviathan.

Leviathans only have a 5++ against shooting.

The relic grants full rerolls to hit and wound. So hit 3/4, wound 8/9. Remove a third (invuln save) then each shot does an average of 2 wounds (d3 dmg).

Hey guys, getting back into 40K after several years (Space Marine Army)

I was wondering if anyone knows if the Primaris Ancient carrying a banner exclusive to the 'Dark Imperium' set?

Also; I'm also thinking about getting into the table top game itself and was wondering what is the average army size? (points wise)

>> No.57268215

For now, yes, as other minis of the box. Just buy him off Ebay.

>> No.57268218


>> No.57268226

I'd say that's reasonable.

If GW don't provide a way to get the bitz you need, then take your business to the recasters. Simple market forces at work bruh.

For example, I wanted cyclic ion blasters for my crisis suits, but you only get 1 of them per commander sprue - nowhere else. Everyone else wants them too, so they're £5 per bit in bitz resellers shops... And even there they're all out of stock. So I ordered 4x 3D printed ones for £22. They look great, but I'd have bought GW bits if I could have found them.

However yeah a fully recast army is a bit shit on a company that we all really want to see succeed

>I was wondering if anyone knows if the Primaris Ancient carrying a banner exclusive to the 'Dark Imperium' set?
As of right now, yes. But the box set is pretty good value as far as GW goes and you could probably find it for sale on ebay or somewhere.

>Also; I'm also thinking about getting into the table top game itself and was wondering what is the average army size? (points wise)
Between 1000 and 2000 points is generally considered "normal", I'd consider 2500 the very limit before getting into crazy Apocalypse/30k territory.

Recasters and third parties are basically result of GW incompetence.

In fact I encourage people to recast things that are impossible to find like OoP models, bits that only come in one kit or shit that is stupidly expensive like SoB. A box of 10 bitches cost the same as a SC.

Honestly amazed you haven't. Just know that when you highlight bright colors with drybrushing it will look chalky and you need to glaze it to blend it together.

Try different amounts of load for the amount of highlight you want on the model, white highlights shouldn't leave any mark on your hand.

Me too anon. I used to take the piss out of my mum for it... Until I inherited it haha, whoops

I've cut caffeine out completely and that's helped a lot. Some people benefit from a small amount of alcohol too but I don't. So I brace my elbows on my knees, my forearms on my desk, push my wrists together firmly, press my little finger on my right hand against my left, and work really slowly.

I've found slowly exhaling as I make the brush strokes really helps too.

With that technique I managed to do this lens and all the helmet edge highlights, and it's my first attempt after an 8 year break

If you want to play Admech, play Admech, because if you like Your Dudes it doesn't matter how tricky they are or how many books they've got.

Their Start Collecting set is one of the best ones in terms of value, and you need a couple copies of everything in there for a basic 1k Mech list anyway. Also, the models look really sweet and they're not so hard to paint if you subassembly them, spray everything silver and then use washes to get all the little metal details before doing the robes and guns and glowy bits and such, they just look like a pain when you put them all together.
