Is there a scenario or environmental rules somewhere in the various campaign books? My LGSs narrative campaign battles on saturday are happening on a storm-wracked continent, and I'm helping write rules to represent it.

I've been thinking:

>No unit can target another unit further than 12" away
>At the beginning of the game, both players lose d3 command points.
>Roll a d6 for each squad in your army at the beginning of your turn. On a 5+, the squad takes a mortal wound. Subtract 1 from this roll for CHARACTER models.
>At the beginning of the game, roll a d6. The storm dissipates and rules return to normal on the turn equal to the number rolled.

Absolutely false. They routinely abandon imperial worlds in need of salvation at the merest rumour of fallen presence elsewhere, murder inquisitors who become suspicious of their activity and kill/mind wipe anyone who sees a Fallen or any of DA operations related to them.
DA are traitors. Maybe they weren't 10k years ago, but they absolutely are now, just by the compounded weight of anti-imperial atrocities they have committed.

>The other Deathwing removed a grenade clipped to his waist and maglocked it to the doors. Priming it, he retreated back around the corner to where his Dark Angels brothers and Imperial Guard allies had taken cover. Seconds later, the wide corridor filled with the echo of detonation and acrid smoke tinged with the reek of scorched metal. Weapons raised, the Godesians and Dark Angels charged into the throne room to execute the orchestrator of the rebellion.

>When they got in there, what they found was entirely unexpected, save, perhaps, to three among their number.

>Where they had expected to find the pathetic figure of the governor, either waving a weapon in one last futile gesture of defiance or down on his knees begging for his life, they instead found a Space Marine sat in the massive throne. A black-armoured Space Marine.

>‘I knew it would only be a matter of time before you caught up with me, “brother”,’ the Space Marine said, rising to his feet and holding his hands up in a placatory gesture. ‘Who was it that gave me away? Which one of them broke in the cells beneath the Rock and gave you my name and location right before you executed them?’

Why does he bear the same icon as you on his–’ began [Major-General Thaddeus Absalom, Lord Commander of the Ninth Godesian Battlegroup and overall commander of the hundred thousand Imperial Guardsmen who had come to Exemeter VII to quell its governor’s sedition]. He was answered by the edge of the Sword of Secrets parting his neck from his shoulders. Before any of the lord commander’s bodyguards could react, Balthasar and Mendrion cut them down in a hail of storm bolter fire. Barrels still smoking, they trained their weapons on the Fallen.

That was Vigilus, I think.

There was a Fallen warlord holed up in a bunker with an ancient grav weapon. Upon receiving the intel on him the DA immediately abandoned supporting the White Scars to capture him. The WS gave chase, got stasis'd, and when they came to, the DA and the "Chaos Warlord" were gone.

That makes them dicks, yes, but not traitors. The Fallen was collaborating with Abaddon. The lines are clear.

That one's a little blurry. On the one hand they dealt with the Fallen and saved not only Vigilus, but also the Nachmund Gauntlet and the entire Imperium Nihilus. On the other hand they were total dicks about it, and their secrecy and methods endangered their allies and may have imperiled an entire half of the galaxy only so they could save face.

So they definitely helped, but it's clearly a case where their secrecy didn't help anyone. And if it hadn't been Fallen who controlled the archaeotech weapon, what then? What if the Fallen had been involved in some other theater of the war? Or even in a neighboring sector? It's easy to imagine the Dark Angels would have diverted resources there instead.

But as far as building an army goes, their roles and models are easy to identify and categorize, instead of having a dev squad with like 3 or 4 different kinds of weapons.

Is there a reason why primaris was even developed from a game point of view? It seems like a strange thing to do. Like what do primaris units enable space marine players to do? I have actually never played a game of warhammer but I like painting and reading the lore of it. It just seems weird to have a unit that is "this unit but better"?

People hate assholes. I'm a competitive player/hobbyist but I dont really compete all that much. I come to every game wanting to win or get better at the hobby/painting, but some take it too far - but I'm confident that's the a minor part of the gaming community. The game should be build from ground up with competition in mind. It's the best way to make a balanced game, and many gamers are competitive in nature. You can still have narrative in a balanced competitive game - Infinity has done a few narrative ITS seasons, and they were all fun because it was balanced.

So no?

It's mostly a marketing thing. They wanted to refresh the line in a way that even players with large collections of older marines would still need to buy into the new models. Game wise they're a little more expensive, and a bit more elite. Primaris happen to be the best band for your buck points vs. effectivenessfor marine troops. You still see old scouts (the cheapest troop option) alongside Primaris Intercessors. If scouts didn't exist you might see Tacticals and Intercessors in the same army.

It was how they updated the range to non manlet without space Marine fans having a complete shitflinging meltdown. They wanted to go up in size like they've been doing with chaos, but they knew that they wouldn't be able to with the loyalist range.

During the initial release the manager of my local gw and I were chatting, and he eventually got really angry and said if they had done an update instead of new units he would pushed everyone that came there away from the hobby and then 'accidentally' burn the place to the ground before the location got closed.

>Roll a dice at the start of your hero phase. If the result is equal to or less than the number of wounds currently allocated to Morathi, she transforms as described on the Morathi, the Shadow Queen warscroll.
>Morathi’s Shadow Queen model is not set up on the battlefield at the start of the battle. Instead, it is set up when Morathi, High Oracle of Khaine uses the Monstrous Transformation or The Truth Revealed ability. When Morathi transforms, her High Oracle of Khaine model is removed from the battlefield and her Shadow Queen model is set up on the spot where she was standing before her transformation. Morathi’s Shadow Queen model can only be set up within 3" of an enemy unit if her High Oracle of Khaine model was within 3" of that unit before her transformation. If there is insufficient room to place Morathi exactly where she was standing before her transformation, simply place the model as close as possible to that spot where there is sufficient room. If, after her Shadow Queen model has been set up, Morathi is more than 14" away from the spot where she was standing before her transformation, she cannot move in the following movement phase. Any wounds allocated to Morathi in her High Oracle of Khaine form prior to her transformation are carried over to her Shadow Queen form and then doubled. For example, if 3 wounds had been allocated to Morathi in her High Oracle of Khaine form before she transformed, she would be set up in her Shadow Queen form with 6 wounds already allocated to her. Note that Morathi cannot transform back to her former aspect during the battle – once in her Shadow Queen form, she stays that way for the remainder of the battle. If Morathi was your general in her High Oracle of Khaine form, she remains your general in her Shadow Queen form.

What are some tips for kit bashing? I am finding it very hard to do because no many units seem... fitting? At least for necrons. For example, necron immortals are larger than necron warriors and have weird cords and cables coming off their backs. The necron immortal torso is like HUGE compared to a warrior torso(warriors are fucking torsolets!) A buddy was telling me a better option is play around with the upper echelon of necron infantry units if I am trying to kit bash. Hell even using overlords for parts and shit like that. I would like to see quality necron kit bashing that doesn't look too far out. My ultimate goal is find some way to give necrons a "heavier" look.

Good thing is, Iron Warriors are easily the most kit-bashy of the chaos legions.

They're against praising the chaos gods, they merely use demons for their own advantage, especially the souls of demons in their machines. They just see the forces of chaos as a means to an end and a benefit to use in their favor.

No, what? He's alive and he still leads the Iron Warriors. The CSM codex mentions how they're loyal to him above all.

Nostalgia can be a big motivator for actually completing an army. Also ghaz getting redone means you might see orks around.

That's a good thing. Good good, let the hatred fuel your painting. Fuck grey tides.

You're a living example of "Fuck you you lazy cunt, paint your armies" to literally every grey-tide whiner in the thread who occasionally rears their ugly, undisciplined head with their excuses of "but i only play the gaaaame" and "I don't need to paint to enjoy the hobbyyy" and "But i'm not good at painting so I won't even tryyy."

Infantry have definite weight classes. Warriors and flayed ones are light peasants. Lychguard and HQs fit into a heavy range. Immortals and deathmarks can fit in between both to some degree. Destroyers are too old and different to fit with much anything else outside of odd bits though.

>> No.71303919

In your opinion, in general, would a heavy stubber or storm bolter be better on a chimera?
heavy stubber seems to put out more shots, but a s.bolter evens out the ratio of rapid fire/heavy weapons.

so I live on east coast USA and don't live near any stories I guess. I actually don't play warhammer. Mostly just paint and read lore. The source thus far for all my necron sprue at least has been amazon. Not really sure if I have an alternative choice? Isn't GW site a rip?

If it makes you happy: all Perty does with his time is play town-builder with his planet, making weird structures and mazes. Well he gets angry too sometimes, but mostly just does his own thing.

Neither. Marines are just upjumped shock troops. The real masters of siege are the Astra Militarum.

He would have never fallen to chaos if he had just got SOME thanks for doing the shit no one else wanted to do AND no one else had the guts to do. Him and his legion had to do what needed to be done and got no thanks at all. While other legions got to jack off and get all the glory for free. Tragic shit man. A simple thank you would have saved an entire legion.

Iron Warriors are better at tearing shit down if they get angry enough.

Imperial Fists are betting at holding a fortress if they get angry enough.

They cancel each other out most times and it turns into a slugfest anyway.

They’re essentially the same.

Even when I actually get all the paints and supplies out and put paint to brush, I just have no drive to do it. I'm not great but I'm not bad at it either (pic related, done for a friend years ago). I've lost that motivation.

That's not really how it happened though, at least as the FW and BL HH books portray it. Even when people did try to honor them, they were so bitter and proud that they didn't want to accept it.

What pert wanted:

>Oh glorious warrior, thank you for your aid in this war! Truly your deeds and the deeds of your sons deserve commemoration!
>Pssh. That's not what we Iron Warriors are about! We don't need praise or glory.
>But my Lord, I insist! We simply MUST praise you!
>Oh all right, but it's not because I want it or anything!

What pert got:

>Oh glorious warrior, thank you for your aid in this war! Truly your deeds and the deeds of your sons deserve commemoration!

Why do you think that Sabaton listeners don't also listen to power metal? Even if you don't consider them within the same genre, you can't deny there is immense overlap in fans.
>real metal
This is the same type of argument I used to hear in high school. Do you think Transilvanian Hunger is the pinnacle of black metal too?

Cadia getting destroyed is literally not canon. Primaris marines are not canon just like Zoats and Squats aren't canon. Kasrkin are the best.
