Is there a chance that 30k AdMech stuff will get rules for 40k?

>> No.71908358

>> No.71908379

Been thinking about 2k Adeptus Mechanicus. The main idea in this list is being Ryza and using Destroyers to shit out plasma shots, and when they inevitably get charged rely on flamers to try and deter.

Then in the back the armor moves forward and supports. I took the Manipulus for the speed boost on the tread boys. The Infiltrators are there to pop out and try to bog down long range enemies before they start chewing through my guys.

It's in the category of possible. It was going to happen through a FW splat book, but that book is never going to be made at this point.

Could you guys help me/point me in the direction of where to come up with stuff for a T'au Sept?

I picked up an extra sprue or two and wanted to use the bits to make causalities for my actual army, fuck T'au and thought it would be better to fluff up my own group rather than use an official one. Or, would it be better to use a more well-known Sept?

There's the Sept creation tables on 1d4chan, but that's more for actual fluff. The codexes are better if you just want an idea for random color schemes, but the only ones people are going to easily identify are Tau, Viorla, and Farsight Enclaves anyway. Otherwise just pick out a nice color scheme that helps compliment/contrast the look of your dudes, since Tau are known to switch armor colors to match environments anyway.

Orks are weird. In terms of gameplay and lore? Yes, they're a great introduction to the game. In terms of actually painting and assembling? They're one of the armies that most easily lead to heavy burnout if you bite off more than you can chew. As long as you go in knowing that it's going to take a while to build and paint everything because you're playing what is essentially a horde army (even IF you decide to go vehichle heavy, it'll still be a horde compared to Knights or Guard Tanks).

They're kind of tricky. Obviously you want to get into meele as quickly as possible in order to bash the enemies' skulls in, but you have to be smart about it (use cover, transports, screening units, etc).

They've got more shots, AP, BS, melee stats and durability. In exchange they're shorter ranged (can be patched with a strat) and are forced to be Freebootaz. They're not quite as good on the whole but they're more consistent. Lootas are glass cannons that you dump every buff into so they delete something while taking casialties on grot shields, flash gitz are there if you want a more mid-ranged force that can last more turns and bee less swingy.

Yeah, just getting into the game and building lists to see which units I get next to paint. Was planning on using 10 lootas with shok gun mek in the backfield (possibly with a morkanaut with KFF because they are cool) with a grot screen to take out fliers/soften up targets that my boyz are charging towards. Would da jump a mob of boyz to tarpit artillery in the backfield and use stormboyz for assaults and taking objectives (may switch for warbikes, not sure yet). Also thinking about a deffdread or unit of kanz since I love how they look. Going deathskulls if that makes a difference. I don't mind if I lose a lot, I just want to have an army that can at least not get tabled on turn 2 so I can play the game.

As a guy who has spent the last 3 days painting 20 warriors and 9 crisis battlesuits, I'd say go for something that's not ocre. Or at least not the one GW sells. I ended up needing about 3-4 coats to get a solid ocre with XV-88.
I still have shadowsun to paint and I don't know if I should strip the paint and go for another scheme or not because it's a pain in the ass. Again, in my opinion, I don't know if weather affects this colors in particular but I wouldn't do it again

That's a pretty competitive list. Remember that Deffskullz work best in small units, and that Kustom Jobs apply to an entire vehicle unit even if they split. What this means is that if you take a unit of vehicles (like Deff Dreads or Scrapjets), give them a Kustom Job then split them at deployment they're getting the maximum benefit from both of those. Something like a unit of 2x gun + 2x klaw Deff Dreads with the +1 BS job can be legitimately good as deffskullz.

Unfortunately the FW ad mech are painted a variety of colors so that makes it difficult to help. I do know that their red (for like, traditional mars ad mech) is Gal Vorbak red rather than the GW ones, gives a darker less cartoony vibe to the model as it's a little less "poppy" if you know what I mean. Little less bright, little less vibrant, but still very noticeably red.

Biggest thing would just be changing terrain rules to get rid of TLOS. If you're in an area of terrain, you can shoot and be shot. If there's an area of terrain between you and your target, you can't shoot eachother.

That makes line of sight a lot less ambiguous, a lot less affected by conversions, and should help speed up the game because a model will either be in the open, in terrain, or out of sight, with no fiddling movement required.

Yeah, that's the other big advantage. It would let people use sparse trees to represent denser forests that allow movement, but without needing to position each leaf in such a way to hide models behind it.

I think the only way I'd expand on such a system is to allow for rubble as a category of terrain that specifically doesn't block line of sight in order to cover things like tank traps or craters that only really help if you're in them, and maybe a rule that makes it so titanic units need two pieces of terrain in the way for them to both hide and be hidden from.

The same thing when people describe themselves as a 'cute newbie' or say 'I'm such a baby' or w.e

People can be self deprecating.

Not OP, but fluff was definitely originally intended to be dismissive of lore. People overly obsessed with lore were also weird back in the day, because it was far less to it. It was often just a couple of paragraphs here and therefor an intro for a product or model. Being a big fan of it was kind of like being a fan of the backs of cereal boxes...they got criticized typically when they complained that x or y model should have beat q or z model because the fluff said they were the best or w/e, even though the stats were right in front of their face.

A lot of the changes like that went leagues to making the game less swingy in balance.
