If your opponent replaced killed models with a casualty model with no base (basically replace dead guardsmen with a model of a guardsmen lying dead on the ground with no base) would you be annoyed or would you think it would interfere with the game somehow? I've been toying with the idea of 3D printing casualties just to add a little visual flair to games but I'm not sure if people would be ok with it.

Also wouldn't mind trying destroyed vehicles which count as cover too.

They don't. An Arbites that kills an Astartes would be immediately executed, and the chapter in question would probably burn down a hive or two, just to iterate the point. The Imperium is a quasi-feudal society with Astartes firmly at the top.

I don't like that the Blood Angels and Ultramarines have switched rivals.

Themes wise, the old rivalries made sense. The Blood Angels are defined by being the best and worst of mankind, Good Men using the evil in their hearts to preserve what they love, so them being primarily opposed by the Black Legion makes sense, since the Black Legion is the best of the worst, villains and tyrants unified by an ostensibly noble cause. Add to that the love between their legions and primarchs during the Heresy and Sanguinius's death at Horus's hands, and their rivalry is perfect.

The Ultramarines on the other hand used to have the Tyranids as a foil, which also seemed perfect. The Ultramarines can win any conventional war, barring none. They took what should have been an istvaan-tier massacre and turned it into a Pyrrhic victory at Calth. They're the perfect soldiers in a conventional battle, but when faced with an unconventional enemy, their reliance on the codex astartes almost ended their chapter, with the Tyranids and Necrons dealing them massive defeats.

Then GW came along and handed the nids to the BA, the Black Legion and Death Guard to the Ultramarines, because MARKETING LOL. fucking wankers

True, but if you want to set UM up against CSM, the most bitter rivalrly in the entire heresy is between the Word Bearers and the Ultramarines. Or like you said, they've got beef with the DG. Hell, G may or may not have killed Omegon, so the Alpha Legion hates them too. The Iron Warriors could hate them because of the whole mess around Dantioc, or Guilliman dressing down Pert in public, etc. Angron and the World Eaters have them for Nuceria, the Night Lords hate them for Sotha and the whole mess on Maccrage.

GW picked THE ONLY TWO csm legions that don't have personal beef with the Ultramarines, DG and BL.

I'd disagree, although that's with an asterisk. Yes, there are more people nowadays who have shittily painted armies, but at the same time there's also way less grey tide because of contrasts and painting tutorials, and if you follow the high end of the painting scene, it's leagues ahead of where it was back then. Basic hobbyists on instagram will put forward shit that would fit in a Golden Daemon lineup from 2002, and the best of the best are doing crazy awesome shit.

Yeah there's more half-baked painting, but there's less grey tide and more passionate painters IMO

>The Sensorians, a newly formed warband of Slaanesh-worshipping Chaos Space Marines, treat with the Dark Mechanicum in an attempt to pioneer Daemon Engines equipped with suites of sonic weaponry. In doing so they learn of the sombre Skitarii of the forge world Agripinaa, ancestral enemies of the Eye of Terror’s machine-hereteks.

>Appalled by the notion that the Skitarii voluntarily exchange their flesh for cybernetic replacements, the Emperor’s Children stage a grand raid upon the planet under the cover of a Dark Mechanicum invasion. They capture several maniples of Skitarii, overloading their circuits with barrages of intense noise and deafening scrapcode, before bearing them back to the Eye of Terror. There they cut out the Skitarii’s bionics and replace them with fleshy equivalents taken from mutants, from corpses, even from fallen Chaos Spawn, until barely an ounce of metal is left.

Not particularly. The legion they antagonized the most was actually the Thousand Sons.

this all comes to about 2023 points thus far, because I also gave vox to the infantry and the veterans and command squad so I can have a constant web of communication in case any of the commanders get taken out of action or if a squad needs to go somewhere and is out of command range.
Idea is that the heavy weapon team infantry squads will sit with the commanders and their command squad taking pot shots at the enemy while slowly advancing, while the veterans and the grenade launcehr infantry advance and try to cause havoc.

Only slightly, because if the want to rush back to Devastator they have to wait until turn 4 and lose out on the second turn of Tac doctrine, and if they want to extend Tac doctrine as long as possible they can only go back to it by turn 6.

I'm sorry anon, but I don't know what the hell you're doing.

>Company Commander(Warlord, Grand Strategist and Armour of Graf Toschenko) Power Sword and Plasma pistol
GS is fine as a trait, but the Armor is useless unless you're building him as a melee unit, which is clearly not what you're doing, and shouldn't be doing anyway.

>Tank Commander with Plasma Cannon and Plasma Sponsons, and Track Guards and a front Heavy Bolter
Why Track Guards? Vostroyans benefit from range boost. You firstly shouldn't be running your tanks around, and certainly not with Plasma Sponsons with the -1 to hit.

>Tank Commander with Battle Cannon and Lascannon and Heavy Bolters and Track Guards Steel Commander Tank Ace ability and Kurov's Aquila
Why a Battle Cannon if you can order yourself to reroll ones anyway? Plasma Cannon is a straight upgrade.
And again, you shouldn't be taking the extra order set since you'll probably be unable to use it effectively unless you're running a near pure tank list.

>2x Infantry squads with a grenade launcher, chainsword and boltgun(meant to accompany the plasma vets)
Grenade launcher is a waste of points and doesn't benefit from the Vostroyan range bonus, which would should be exploiting the shit out of.

>2x Infantry squads with lascannon, boltgun, and chainsword
If you're attaching lascannons to infantry, do it to your Veterans, as a 4+ to hit on a Heavy 1 is pretty questionable.

>2x Infantry squads with heavy bolter, boltgun, and chainsword
Autocannons do what heavy bolters do, but better. And most times you'll be facing non-hordes anyway.

Also, why are you adding boltguns to all your sergeants?

>2x Platoon commanders with power sword
Why are you giving Platoon commanders power swords? For your Company commanders I can see it'd be nice as a last measure, but it really makes no sense here, you should be using them almost purely for the orders.

>2x Veterans

>I also gave vox to the infantry

Zoomers might actually be more WAACfag because of their prevalent use of the internet, they play competitive shit and have it burnt into their mind to google strats for competitive games, and are raised on shit like League, CSGO, Fortnite (regardless of your opinion on these games, they are tryhard sweaty ass games with competitive modes).

How far suboptimal will you go to choose a more aesthetically pleasing or thematic model? Building TSons/Tzeentch Daemons and having a tough time choosing between Maulerfiends and Defilers.

>> No.71238940

Slightly unlikely, simply due to the fact that while the Omnissiah and Empreror are officially the same by Imperial Creed, it's mostly a compromise that neither side really likes.

Still, it's possible that the group of sisters and tech priests involved buy into the duality much more than average, and thus don't have the usual tension associated with doctrinal disputes.

>> No.71239149

Well, aside from the obvious relic weapons available to Sisters such as some of the fancy pistols they have access to, it becomes a more subjective question. Obviously Boltguns, Meltas, and Flamers are all things the Ad Mech makes, manufactures, and supplies in good quality and quantity. However, what complicates things is the fact that traditionally sisters are less prone to using non-bolt/flame/melta weapons. However, these girls are clearly less traditional.

To focus on rules over lore for a moment, I think Plasma might be a good route to take with them. Combi-plasma and Plasma pistols are available to many characters, and are usually rarer in terms of the greater imperium. However, there could also be the possibility of something like Armiger Warglaives or other Imperial Knights that the Ad Mech might be able to provide them with, which could offer some heavier support than they'd normally have access to.

As for how much is believable, it depends on what the Ad Mech's forgeworld has access to. Generally though, anything on par with the average space marine armory would be believable. Alternatively, simply taking Ad Mech allies is a more straightforward option

>> No.71239175

We say LEE-min.

>> No.71239188

Thanks for the thoughts. Plasma sounds like fun, and implies it burns things even more pure than regular flamers and meltas. I suppose maximizing heavy weapons troops makes sense.

And maybe adding in some skitters and a techpriest.

needs more anti tank/monster. relying on melee alone for that is a big gamble, and prone to hard counter by several factions

what kind of asshole takes a tank to a 500 point game

>> No.71239435

Everybody, theres a reason why most start collecting boxes come with one.

>> No.71239439

A single tank isn't that big of a deal at 500 points.

>> No.71239449

thats the logic that leads to someone taking a knight at 500 points

>> No.71239467

That's a pretty massive leap in logic.

>> No.71239468

Most people do, retard.
Most monsters and tanks are 70 to 130 points.
You're fucking SoB and dont have Anti armor. It's 100% your fault there.

>> No.71239469

A carnifex is like 90 points. A trygon is like 130.

You can't even deal with a 112 points night spinner.
Trash list.

>> No.71239471

yeah, or switch the rets to multi meltas, or both
most 500 pts lists are gonna have at least 1 high toughness model

It's fun for a but but the game suffers right now from a crippling lack of factions/options. Game launched last fall with Orks vs Imperial Navy. They still haven't added a third faction. That being said they're releasing a new starter set of Imperial Navy (with new craft options) vs Tau Air Caste. Rumor I heard was they'd release at least 5 factions and possibly more depending on sales but their release strategy has been baffling. I play Imperials and consensus in my group is that Orks suck (at least in straight up dog fights without other objectives). Other problem is that certain options are just bad. There's almost zero reason to take regular Thunderbolts over thunderbolt Furies. Furies are a great upgrade for a mere 2 points more than the base tbolt with far better upside. The marauder destroyer is 4 points more than a regular marauder and far more capable of engaging enemy aircraft while still being a serviceable bomber.
