Melee wants duel scything, tusks and spore cysts, along with a mace tail.

Or two sets of devourers, enhanced senses and spore cysts for ranged.

If you take the prey-sight trait and/or old one eye, then you can use crushing claws but I would avoid them unless you know you're coming up against a knight. You can also sub out a set of devourers on a few of the shooty carnifex's for a heavy venom cannon if you have to deal with very large targets.

cool models, can be argued to be worthwhile or worthless. People say you can just order your guardsmen to run fast instead of a chimera, but a chimera is good to cart them around if you want to reserve that order for something else(like a shooting order), and acts as good cover and a support platform(the Multilaser is mediocre, but itll shred infantry).

Psychic Awakening should've just given us Thousand Sons versions of some more of the generic CSM stuff. Give us Dark Apostles, Warpsmiths, some form of the Lord Executioner, the Venomcrawler. Instead of a new list of spells or retarded cult spells, give each HQ and unit it's own bespoke spell. Aspiring Sorcerers get a return the dead to life spell, Warpsmiths get an aura to hit bonus spell, Dark Apostles get a summoning spell, etc.

The Cults were a shitty idea with a shitty implementation. The last thing we needed was even more restrictions, and absolutely nobody gave a fuck about the new cults up until this point.

My thing with DG is that they've got all these cool fucking units, but they're fucking trash.

PMs are garbo, Deathshroud and Mortarion are super shit because the only way you get any use out of morty is if you throw him at the enemies units T1, but then the deathshroud cant keep up, then morty dies after that so theres almost 500 points wasted + the deathshround because you didn't deepstrike them cause you wanted them to stay with morty, OR you keep morty going slow AF and he still gets shot off the table turn one.

Typhus is only good for Poxwalker memes, but thats super garbo since they move 4 inches per turn and still are pretty useless, because by the time you get your poxwalker blob in charge range its turn 4 and your opponent has shot everything else you have off the table and those S4/T4 poxwalkers with improvised weapons aren't gonna do a whole lot (it might be S5/T5 with the +1 i forget the base) Same thing with LoC.

PBCs and bloat drones are solid, as are blightlords, but those alone can't really carry the rest of the army t b h.

My biggest issue with DG right now is that they're tanky most of the time, but that doesn't matter because they don't really do anything except take hits.

Don't even get me started on the elite slots that have beautiful fucking models like the Blightbringer, but are literally useless.

I’ve payed every mission at least twice. It rewards two things; killing units and holing objectives. But you get so much for killing that you can ignore objectives for 1-2 rounds if need be.

Anyone have a faq source on how to resolve an instance where you have the option to reroll a die and reroll dice roll?

Say for instance I need an 8 to make a charge and roll a 5 and a 2. I opt to use the tactical reroll strat to reroll the 2 and end up getting a 2 again. Can I then use the ability to reroll the entire roll to reroll just the 5 in a hope for a 6, since you can only reroll a die once?

Thousand Sons. I started them back in 4E because I loved the idea of a handful of space wizards commanding legions of thralls and automata.

I wouldn't actually start them now. As a stand-alone faction they're garbage, and even as a soup component only a small fraction is useful. They're extremely susceptible to list tailoring (a single Culuxus Assassin will shit all over you), and nothing makes casual players saltier than psykers.

Can't reroll a dice more than once. Can't choose to only reroll part of a whole if the rule tells you reroll the whole. If you have something that lets you reroll the charge in its entirety but try to use a command reroll instead, that's all you can do.

Does Huron actually have a pretty bad track record?

Also only two, technically 3, unique models which are from 2nd or 3rd edition, an almost useless faction trait, and that's about it. Oh and I guess we have a 3rd/4th model but it's a FW one. Also GW has basically forgotten about the EC, but with them getting mentioned recently and the old Noise Marine model getting a revamp as a one off guy, maybe there is hope yet for us degenerates.

I play necrons because I love the look and I really liked their old lore as these unknowable ancients that could be under your feet at this very moment who are just waiting to awaken and reclaim their lost empire. I miss the C'tan as these godlike beings that could only really interact with this world because some desperate fuckups made a deal with them.

You should not play necrons unless they get some sort of major buff in PA as it is suffering if you are dealing with WAAC fags. They are really fun to play otherwise and can be hard to deal with because of things like quantum shielding that can make certain armies cry.

You pretty much got it all right.
With zero way to reroll charges/improve charges other than command rerolls, deepstriking with termies and typhus is a meme. Fail your charge? Wasted your points right there, they're just gonna get shot off.
Plague Marines are way too expensive. Who cares if they have T5 and 5+ FNP, they're just gonna die to volume of fire. I'd rather bring 20 more poxes for chaff.
HQ slot... you're not gonna bring anything other than a DP or a generic chaos lord for cheap rerolls. Why isn't there a dedicated DG Chaos Lord? The Plaguecaster was overcosted but now it's ok after the point drop.
Elites... the surgeon is useless. Reroll FNP of 1. Yay. Putrifier... ok for grenade memes? But you're gonna run Plague Marines so you're already losing from the start. The Blightspawn is pretty good but it's a flamer so you get that dreaded D6 for number of attacks. The Tallyman would be good if DG had any melee units worth bringing (they don't).
The point is that you have to jump through multiple hoops to make things kind of work, but for Space Marines they can just sit still and shoot twice (mmm Bolter Discipline) with their 30" rapid -1AP bolt rifles (-2AP in Tactical Doctrine because fuck you) when you have to slowly walk up the board.

Such it was for our gene-father Sanguinius, who walked knowingly and willingly into a terrible death, to condemn his own sons to a great burden that must be carried eternally, for this moment of sacrifice is what allowed the God-Emperor the ability to slay the traitor Warmaster, and save humanity from his heretical clutches.

They don't get legion traits anymore so that was a hit, and their max squad size is now only 30 so stacking buffs on them are less efficient.
But if you want to do it the general Strat is have slaanesh cultist, put prescience and Vets of the long war, and since they are slaanesh they can shoot twice.

The only other way of running them is have a block of iron warrior obliteraters behind them and have them do the shoot while you use the meat sheild Strat that IW's have.

Not yet. My intent is to have solid chunks of lore on everything. I'm waffling on a demon prince (using abbadon as the base) or a termie lord as the warband leader once i rev up to full size. Long story short, the 500 points is the vanguard, with the whole army theme being broken bits of a chapter slapped shitless by inquisitors. They rebuild red corsairs style: The lord follows trouble, pulls up his cruiser and says "Get in the bus, I got food and shelter" and lo and behold, an army.

I've been converting my cultists to look less like a bunch of dregs scraped off someones butthole and more like a ragtag militia. I like the idea that they are fellow soldiers, not just meat puppets.

I think they definitely incentivize it. They're one of the strongest shooting armies in a game dominated by the shooting phase. Sure they have their share of downsides but they also have a lot of ways around them (the entire board gets to fire overwatch, most units worth charging can fly to fall back and still shoot, drones tanking hits, etc) and their playstyle really incentivizes castling which is just not fun to play against.

>after having a hive city spire collapsed on him he saw a vision of the fist of Gork (or maybe Mork) punch him so hard he came back to life (some grots may claim it was a nearby Nob hitting him for "lazing about" after getting hit with a brick after a spire a hab block over exploded, but never in earshot of the Boss) leading him to believe he's destined for something "greater", which has lead him to fight his way to the top spot on the bosspole, but with no real plan on what to do.
>This lack of clear direction, and his muttering to himself and habit of throwing bomb squigs around in a scrap has caused a fair bit of discontent, but despite his peculiarities he has lead the warband to a fair number of good fights so they put up with his visions of (delusions) of grandeur.

For a galaxy spanning civilization, why is the Imperium so lame? I mean seriously, they're still burning hydrocarbons for energy on most of their worlds (hence why most Imperial planets are polluted to the point of being nearly inhospitable).

So I was thinking too much about the lore and the bit where it's revealed that the Emperor made a pact with Chaos that involved the Primarchs somehow (the Primarchs being the thing Chaos wanted as shown in the HH Word Bearer novels where the Word Bearers were sent back in time to break the wards on the Primarch's tubes which allowed Chaos to scatter them, or possibly attempt to seize them only for them to be scattered instead when the Emperor showed up and possibly got into a psychic slap fight with Chaos).

So in Master of Mankind we see the Emperor as a child, born to a normal family whose uncle killed his father and the Emperor kills him in revenge. This shows that biologically the Big E was born a normal human, at least genetically. What sets him apart is his massively powerful soul which seems to sustain him until he rises to become the Emperor proper.

So after the Thunder Warriors don't pan out the Emperor decides to create a new template to base his new legions on, one closer to his power so that they can hold truer to his vision. To do this they create massively powerful bodies (something the Emperor may not have actually had as shown as him being choked out on Ullanor, which means his might may have been entirely psychically enhanced), but to give those bodies life they'd need incredibly powerful souls (shown by Fulgrim's primarch cloning project where Ferrus was brought back complete multiple times, but Horus was a failure that could be cut down effortlessly by Abbadon).

Now the Emperor couldn't just recreate the events of his own birth. He'd need thousands of willing volunteers to sacrifice themselves in a very specific ritual (that'd need to be repeated twenty times), and likely a long time for those new souls to gestate into a usable form.

So he went to bargin with Chaos for the means to create those souls likely using warp energies and possibly splinters of his own soul as seeds (as shown in Dark Imperium where Guilliman feels the tug of the warp everytime he uses a teleportarium, as well as why every Primarch holds a splinter of the Emperor's personality respectively).

At least, that's what my lore mongering has come up with.

- Dropping the blight launchers and getting an extra rhino for the characters.
- Dropping the rhinos completely and getting and extra 10 man melee squad OR an extra plague caster and wargear for the other squads.

It's a lot to put into one unit but it's not really that CP intensive or very difficult to cast for most psyker heavy DG armies and mostly just relies on good aura positioning
protecting them is easy enough, just stack -1s to hit from spells or use cloud of flies to make them untargetable and wrap them in plaguebearers (which you will have with poxbringers anyway) and stack them with a -2 to hit. Even then they're not that easy to kill since they have a 3+/5++ at T5 with 2 wounds each.

It's a fucking meme tier strat but they will fuck up pretty much anything they happen to get within stabbing range
I personally use a unit of 14 possessed which is around 238pts, really not a bad point investment all things considering
buff them even further with rerolls and make sure they all get into base contact and there arent many units that can survive this
the core of this strategy is only 825~ points for a plaguecaster, daemon prince, plaguebearers, and a poxbringer, but you can trim it down by using a chaos lord instead of a daemon

Yeah, we have no idea in 40k.
We know a few things.

Russ has lost most of his weapons and maybe his armor.
Angron is active and has become bigger then a bloodthirstier.

That said he was always a better fighter then Guilliman.
Guilliman was always very mid tier when it came to combat in 30k.
He was more of a buffer.
So I am assuming that if russ would come back and still be a better fighter.

Russ with the spear that he hates using would be a fucking beast.

The tanks themselves are going to be separated into two task forces: one is a plasma commander who is ordering himself for constant re-rolls and is accompanied by two lemans with a battle cannon and a lascannon and heavy bolters, whereas the other commander has the Steel Commander ability and will act as a order dispenser for other leman russes(all three will be demolishers).
