Honestly I notice that 40k with children tends to be because the parent likes this game or just board games in general, and not something children naturally find themselves. Not that it ever stopped GW from marketing the game to children, one can easily find ads as early as 2e trying to sell it to children rather than adults and the color schemes are specifically chosen to appeal to children rather than adults.

I loved the honest aspect of oldhammer. They knew their minis were supposed to be luxury items so they only worried about selling you 20-30 marines, a captain and then one metal rhino or something.

Thoughts on a single no-force-org Inqusitor as a dedicated CP farmer/morale buffer/character hunter?

An Inferno Pistol/Thunder Hammer/Digital Weapons Ordo Minoris inquisitor should fairly reliably kill a Space Marine captain in one round if he can Smite, shoot and charge, and then you can Seize For Interrogation and Ld debuff the entire enemy army.

Alternatively, Ordo Xenos, CP farm warlord trait, poisoned force sword. Slightly less choppy but can take on Monsters really well too in case you ever needed to cut down a Hive Tyrant solo.

Either way, 1CP and around 70 points, which seems like a pretty good deal.

Ghaz is one of the best units in the game for 1v1 melees. Point for point, he's easily the best. His problems are the fact that he has very little protecting him before he gets into CC, he's a named character with some army buffs so he'll be a gigantic fire magnet, he's unique so you can only take one of him with no contingency, and he's slower than he should be because he can't benefit from his own rules.

Still, if the meta ever becomes knights again, Ghazzy will be a very, very attractive option.

Yeah, that was the plan. If the transport helis aren't really bad I was going to load up a load of Vanguard plasma killteams in them and do a big air assault on a flank somewhere, and I was going to use the Inquisitor as a drop commander since he can give them all Ld10, which means squads of five will never ever break and he'll be in close quickly.

If Ruststalkers or Infiltrators were slightly better or slightly less pricy I'd drop them instead, but I think plasma calivers too good.


No Skitarii Alpha characters anywhere else and besides, it's Inquisition, they're balanced around being seasoned into other armies. If I wanted to WAAC my air cav I'd be using Scions, not dropping 7ppm infantrymen out of 60-80pt transports.

Considering that rules is usually just copy+paste, as confirmed by devs, and that Ghaz had infantry before: I think it's fully on purpose to curb how strong he is.

>he thinks metal isn't also inherently self-pardoy

Brit culture is always full of self-satirising humour like that. 40k and metal are both British inventions.

In fact I'll go further and suggest that the defining line between good metal and bad metal is the same as good 40k fluff and bad 40k fluff. The good stuff is self-aware and doesn't take itself too seriously. The bad stuff plays it totally straight.

It's the difference between, let's say, something classic like Venom, and garbage like Machine Head.

I'm not saying 40k doesn't have metal influence, rather that that is not the singular influence. For example, look at Necromunda which has heavy elements of punk incorporated in it. I do not like the meme that is pushed by LARPers that 40k was a one note metal setting. Not only is it inaccurate, it ultimately sterilizes the setting and reduces it from multiple mixed genres and styles into just one that that poster likes. It is one thing to say "I like this part of 40k". To say "Only this is 40k" is a step beyond.

A corporation jumped the gun on the project and entered into a trilogy project for one of the most popular IP's of all time with no endgame or main story arc, hired three different direction/production teams to do each movie, and did not learn the correct lessons (strengths AND weaknesses) from the Prequels trilogy when trying to make their own IP, and tried the same tropes again (Phasma/Boba Fett, etc.) without understanding why that worked the first time.

As a result, it created three separate movies that looked good and had decent acting performances, but with no real story arc, wildly different characters and motivations, and nonsensical decision making and lack of internal logic and cohesion, and it didn't work with adult fans very well.

Say what you want about the prequels (and there are a LOT of valid criticisms), but at least they had a coherent story narrative, tried new and different story ideas, and a decided endgame, and the movies were made that way. You could rewrite the atrocious dialogue, maybe add a few scenes here and there, and the movies would dramatically improve in quality while still being more-or-less the same movie. You cannot do that with the Sequels.

I think most people would be able to agree what constitutes a shortcut though.

If there was a rule like that I imagine them putting in some example pictures. One is a Space Marine painted by like some kid, it's not great but the different parts are all painted in with intention, it might be rushed out of impatience but it's still understandable what the kid wanted.

Then the other one would be a Space Marine some WAACfag used an air-brush to spray one side white and the other side blue so it technically fits the rule, but anyone with a brain can call them out for spending maybe fifteen minutes to paint their entire army.

I agree with it in spirit but there's a lot of shit in 40k people just let slide anyway.

You are right that generally people will play just about anyone out of courtesy, but that doesn't mean people enjoy playing "counts-as" models even if its just a color scheme. Like a person might smile and be nice the whole game, but they also could make a note of disliking you and think you're just playing for the rules in examples such as yours.

>> No.71643990

The problem with trying to balanced special characters is that points differences don't cut it. Either there is one loadout that is immensely superior to the rest or the base model's rules are good enough to take bare-bones. If the thunderhammer was 80 points, BAngle players would still bring a smash-captain or no captain at all, because that is the effective build and no points change will fix it.

The options themselves have to be as balanced with each other at a similar points value before they actually matter.

I would just let players pick a non-HQ model using any datasheet in their army as a template, give it 1 extra WS/BS, 2 extra attacks, and 3 extra wounds. They can give it equipment as normal, but past that it's a single character model. Points-wise I think it would need to be a flat minimum extra points, or some sort of multiplier of the base points of the model.

That pretty much allows people to make any sort of custom HQ they want. Would also need to be limited to one of these per army so that people don't find the most optimal combo and then spam 3 of it

This is the biggest thing I can stress enough for people using an airbrush for the first time, you need to get into the habit of cleaning it out each time before putting it away.

Smooth basecoats was the main goal, so that works just fine. Mostly I just need to do lots of greens on my Skitarii robes, Dunecrawlers and soon helicopters and cream on my Frateris Militia, since I can start with priming the first two Leadbelcher and washing and then it's just details.

>"don't start while aiming at model"
its habit at this point so i forgot about it, glad another anon didn't. starting spraying at the model has a tendency to make spiderweb effects in the wet paint from the initial burst of air pressure. however, i have gotten interesting effects on weathering terrain using the technique. a quick spritz of nuln oil on terrain at a higher air pressure will spiderweb the wash a bit, and once dry will look like a dried oil stain.

>Sanguinius confronts a formation of titans (One Warlord and its three warhound escorts). He begins by stabbing one of the warhounds in the head and causing it some serious damage. The warlord reacts to protect its escort by targeting the Angelic Primarch with its weapons. The Primarch outraced the apocalyptic weapons of the watlords and soared up. He dragged his spear through the flank of the titan creating a ugly gash to its side and then he stabbed the titan in the back of its head. He pushed the spear deep into the base of the warlord's skull and held firm as the titan started booming snorting and choking noises from its warhorns as it began to shake and convulse. The titan fell apart and crumbled to the earth. Sanguinius flew down and stood at the side of his titanic kill and gazed at the three warhounds as they bathed him in their target seeking systems. The Primarch yelled "Try if you like. Shall we continue?". In unison, the warhound titans turned back and fled. Later some in the recounting of this event insisted that no way can a Primarch stand before the weapons of three god machines. The warhounds must have detected the approach of titan killing machines that were two minutes away. However, those who witnessed the event firsthand know for a fact that the titans fled the wrath of the Angel.

Except it's not. Only racist dipshits who don't want to admit their ancestors were black keep trying to push different theories but can never back them up with concrete evidence. The closest they can get is multiple migrations.
Out of Africa.
Which is still from Africa.

Stay away from me, i may be born pedo(hebe), but i like older women better fortunately. But i am terrified of kids, not because im scared ill touch them, which i wont. I believe its morally wrong etc etc. But im terrified people will misunderstand the situation if i am within 20m radius of a kid. People dont seem to understand that being born pedo dont make you wanna rape everyone. Nor do i care to explain it, i'm just gonna stay away thank you very much

And no i don't find this kid attractive, she's way to young. Paradox coming from me, but thats why i dont trust people to understand either

Maybe. If I recall, they were depicted as primarily being telepathic, which they use to maneuver their ships and possibly fling meteorites at foes. They could go for something simple by just giving them a special rule to deny and having their psychic powers just be statted up as normal weapons in the form of rocks that they fling, in order to keep it simple.

Would a bright yellow for the Arc rifles work? I used blue for the plasma, and it feels weird having them be the same color.

Also, fellow tech-priests, how do you equip your Vanguards?

Yellow sounds like a good idea.
Usually 4 rad (with a maul in the other hand for the alpha) and a plasma. It's a shame they only give you one of each special weapon per sprue, or else I'd take two.

>It's really embarrassing that such a low bar is being set at this point

I mean, yeah, but it shows that there is at least a CORE of good ideas, and that the problem is the execution.

Think of it like a theater play. You can rework and set up the design of the play in a variety of different ways, using different cast and crew. You can use and chop different songs in the play for different interpretations, even going as far as to completely rewrite dialogue for different actors - but the core story and ideas of the play remain the same.

The Prequels are a good play that is performed by an overall bad team with hit-or-miss direction and production.

The sequels are a bad play that is performed with good actors, and each act of the play is written and directed by a different person with their own ideas.
