Posting again. 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.

Angron is just an overpriced bloodthirster with all that entails, berzerkers have one (1) weird visual thing to them that makes them the butt of the new sisterposting trend for months.

Try to get a good base coat down on the model and then hit it with a wash, aiming to have a non-thick base coat and making sure the wash doesn't pool.

How, if they're made to order? I'd have to miss the announcement and if they did get announced as MtO, it'd make all the grognards cream their jeans so hard even I should hear about it (if I missed the newsletter and announcements on WH Community and GW sites). Guess you could bump up the price, which is likely seeing that they could cram all the metal Razorback bits in with the Rhino and metal turret/sponson options with the Predator.

You probably want to include at least a few snipers. I'm a bit curious as to what the Graia detachment is doing, I'm guessing that they're ranging in front of the army as a wall and to prevent deep strikes? Might be worth swapping the vanguard for rangers then. Considering that you aren't using any graia specific strats or equipment, you could go for mars on that detachment, getting shroudpsalm twice will have them lasting longer than the graia buff.

I want to try painting other armies a bit but I am afraid of abadoning my necrons. I really like how admech servitor shit looks. Not so much the skitarri. I like heavily mechanically modded humans. I like necrons too though but necrons seem really limited from a creative standpoint I guess. What is the admech servitor unit actually called? I am probably going to buy some I guess.

Aside from the fact that 40k is more Space-fantasy than Sci-fi anyway, walking across no-mans land to capture land doesn't even describe most missions you see on the tabletop. A lot of them are focused on murdering as many enemies as possible, capturing relics, or fighting aboard sections of massive spaceships or in the tight corridors of a city.

It's not that common to see, but I've found it's fun to drop down 60 or 70 infantry that you can just throw away.

A pinch of eroticism, whatever. In deldar it's part of the ingame culture and doesn't override the other visual language brought by the faction.

Thought it would be clear because we don't have actual visual art from that book. I brought it up as an example because the movie does biological weapons(like the artillery) well, instead of growing guns.

I don't have a problem with xenos using guns - I have a decent old kroot army. I just don't like the aesthetic of growing flesh guns - the Hive Tyrant has it as well and is a centerpiece model imo. I think it all works well for it's fanbase, it just isn't an aesthetic I want to collect.

I think the group overwatch rule is what gives incentive to gunline blobs. If Tau's assault defense was in the form of letting another nearby unit fall back when they fired overwatch, there would be a lot less advantage to putting all your squads in one bubble.

I don't hate T'au per say. I just hate GW's design of them. It's much better to take massive blobs of drones that 1 or 2 per battle suit. You should always take 3 riptides and as many commanders as possible. Strike teams are just better than breacher teams. There's barely any flex choices. A lot of the shit would be easy to avoid to, like making the +4" to assault weapons hit all brackets of breachers, making drones only able to protect what they are accompanying, and slight buffs to uncommon battle suits and slight nerfs to riptides and commanders. Plus make the mobility options as good as the rewards for sitting still so people aren't as incentivized to sit dead still with T'au. Suddenly with 4-5 simple changes they're an actual army.

For example one would be really strong yet primitive and based on amazons another would be based off of Russian night witches all being based off of known female warriors of various types? Notable characters would be added later also based on that culture.

The main issue with different sisters orders is that they're all based off of a former living saint, which are each cool in their own right, but are all dead now so the origins behind it tend to be less well known. I don't think shifting their homeworlds would be the best move, as that just means another degree of separation between the order's origins and their current state.

Trying to take inspiration from existing warrior cultures also just makes them more akin to knock-off space marines and removes the fact that they're simply a militaristic arm of a centralized religious institution. At the very least rather than warriors you should be taking inspiration from religious sects. Ideally, this would be accompanied by new living saints to help emphasize the thematic distinction through their faith-based powers, but currently making an OC living saint is very special snowflake due to Celestine being the only current example

I simply have a theory that the reason that space marines are so loved by GW writers is because they are so easy to write about and the reason for that is the real world inspiration they each take cues from. Once you get sisters to be something other than "nuns with guns" people will flock to them.
The fact that none of the responses gave me anything critical other than color schemes is a terrible sign. No wonder people are still whining about female space marines.

I actually don't even underperform when I run a bunch of random stuff in Tau as some commanders are there. I don't think running fewer than three commanders ever makes sense, and bringing a single riptide seems fine...going that way gives a strong enough firebase that as long as you put bodies of any type on the table things work out.

Adding 60 kroot, a devilfish with a breacher and rail rifle pathfinder teams, a farsight crisis bomb...even having some hounds and krootox as distraction pieces work. Ghostkeel and stealth suits with the mirror stratagem is fun and messes with the opponent battle line, that ends up being more effective than it should be.

Idk, I just don't think competitive lists are tuned enough for weird grab-bags of units to make them actually not be viable. At least in Tau, there are definitely some bad offenders in other army lists, especially before the last CA.

Can you blame them? Space marines are all at their very core warrior monks, but if that was it they wouldn't get anywhere near the audience they do today I guarantee it. Heck the reason space wolves are so popular is because they are so unorthodox.

Now the "nuns with guns" theme isn't bad, it's just overused. Having an entire faction revolve around that is like an entire faction revolving around "we are elves" or "we are space skeletons" those are legitimate themes who have a legitimate audience, but that one audience is tiny in comparison to the coalition of audiences space marines are.

Did not know that, so like a primarch then. Ok. it would help greatly if the saints were known to have different personalities and style to show significance. Maybe a micro series on Dominica and her companions.

>Trying to take inspiration from existing warrior cultures also just makes them more akin to knock-off space marines and removes the fact that they're simply a militaristic arm of a centralized religious institution.

Good point, but how many people are drawn in from the "female religious fanatic" trope compared to space vikings+space templars+space romans

>At the very least rather than warriors you should be taking inspiration from religious sects.

>Good point, but how many people are drawn in from the "female religious fanatic" trope
Joan of Arc is pretty noteworthy, but even outside of that people also like Templars and Crusaders quite a lot. That said, I think what helps is the aspect of living saints, as outside of warrior cultures the way people usually think of religion for fantasy games is in domains. Having a saint who can shoot fire from her eyes or a saint that can heal with a touch wouldn't be anything groundbreaking, but it would be a quick shortcut in the same way that space vikings would be.

As far as distinguishing based on religious sects, I could see quite a few ways to accomplish that even through something as simple as general unit choice or flavor. For example, a Catholic order might make more use of Sisters Repentia and treat it as a punishment in addition to the voluntary aspect, but would also more carefully tally the weight of sins and have a path off of it. Conversely, the baptist-inspired order would likely keep it more voluntary, and instead focus on Crusader teams and other non-sisters troops that they would invite to join them along their missions, and generally having a more casual attitude towards who they accept into their ranks.

Essentially, you would want to go into more detail for each order as to what they see the role of each squad as in terms of their order rather than a simply tactical view. Similar to how Space Wolves put their scouts into assault squads first and save devastators for veterans, converse to how most other chapters do, you could have some Orders who perhaps see all as sinful and require a period of Repentia service before new members get their power armor. Or other strange variations based on the Order's ideals and preferences.

And all of that is without even touching upon real world culture to a large degree. It's simply a matter of fleshing out what potential already exists
