Good to hear, i suggest getting the rule book of the mega since it's got inline edits of the errata in the system.
What army do you play? because some armies require more knowledge than others with how phases play out, particularly melee armies.

Oh that's understandable, i should have said the BRB rules.

Most of it can be condensed down, but stuff like targeting characters, and assault phase pile in and consolidate require can require some more indepth explanations.

I think with Tallarn you'd be fine. That helps make some of the other vehicle options outside of the Russ more effective. Their Stratagem to outflank a few units might also help mitigate the lack of artillery, since you can use those to flush out entrenched units. A Manticore probably would still be a good idea for larger point games though, since it's fairly effective against knights and other durable targets.

There's a lot.
Anyone who's genuinely into old school metal gets a pass even if everyone has heard of the band. That'd be Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Ozzy, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Judas Priest, and some consider Led Zeppelin to be oldschool metal too.

Past that, it's basically avoiding melodic deathmetal (a contradiction) avoiding numetal (CRINGE) being selective in your metalcore, and laughing at powerviolence because it's a joke.
Prog metal and techdeath are both on the fence. Technically very competent....but there's a lot of faggotry and pretension surrounding it and that's not what metal is about.

Nice, the melee is definitely something that pays to be knowledgeable about.

Declaring charges is a big thing since you can only fight what you've charge that turn, but everything you declare can fire overwatch so long as they're not already in melee, so it's a cost/benefit choice. A good tactic people use is sending in tough units like vehicles to soak up overwatch and lock units in combat since then you can charge with your squishier units without fear of getting shot at.

Piling in is another useful rule to know how to do properly. When you charge you have to be outside 1" of units you didn't declare for your charge, but after the charge phase is over and you start declaring who can fight that changes. So long the models piling in end closer than they were to the unit the are fighting they are able to move within 1" of non-declared units, the unit will be able to attack you but they'll be locked in combat and will have to sacrifice shooting next turn to leave.
Also wrapping squads with units that aren't in base contact yet is key to lock squads in combat and not getting shot at the next turn.

>hopefully it's not too much of a jumbled mess

Like the write up above said, having knowledge on how certain mechanics work is important so you can use certain tactics, like pile in's and consolidate wraps.
Stuff someone in a tourny wouldn't like to help you too much with since it can cost them winning.

There's the hue of a color.
That's your RGB value.
Then there's the saturation.
The more saturated it is, the more actual RGB there is, up to 100%.
The more desaturated, the less of the RGB.
This is different from the brightness, which is how much black is added to the RGB values.

The question you want to start with is Resin vs. PLA and go from there.

If you want highly detailed resin minis you can start with Anycubic Photon or Elegoo Mars. If you want terrain or large but less polished PLA minis then something like the Ender3 or Prusa clones work.

Personally I went with the Mars for resin and I scratchbuilt a PLA machine early on when 3D printing first became a thing. If I was doing anything for 40k I would do it in resin, even if I had to break the components up to be made in the smaller printer. The better detail is too good to pass up.

Surely the Rebellion of the Men of Iron and the Fall of the DAoT is common knowledge among mankind as the reason for their hatred of AI.

The Tau, who want to study and assimilate human culture, would need to be keenly aware of this fact when enticing human colonites to their side since they have primitive AI.

Is it ever mentioned how the Tau feel about this? Do they think themselves immune to mankind's great mistake, or would they have some sort of contingency plan?

Speaking of, it's shown that even Emperor fearing and worshipping imperials can join the Tau and still have faith in him. Do you think Admech ever do so? Perhaps some radicals seeing it as opportunity to study and deploy new technologies and freedoms denied them under the proper Admech?

The thing we have to remember is that the Imperium is not a mono culture. Even the Imperial Creed and the Cult Mechanicus vary wildly from one planet and sector to the next.

>> No.71920397

I don't think the reason for the hatred of AI is well known among humanity or even Tech Priests. Odds are the Tau might assume such beliefs are just another superstition among humans, or figure that any legends that might exist of attacks from AI would simply be due to the logical machines and primitive humans not being able to understand eachother.

Every time the Men of Iron crop up in the fluff, no one knows what they are aside from some highly ranked Adeptus Mechanicus sort (the types who run forge worlds or Ark Mechanicuses) or Inquisitors and everyone else just knows AI=Bad or they're crazy enough to overlook that (and see a bloody end).

We're talking about a setting where most people don't even know the history of the Imperium proper and you want knowledge of the Men of Iron and the Dark Age of Technology, let alonehow they fell to be something that's, in his words, "common knowledge".

This was a planet that had been liberated by the Ultramarines during the Great Crusade. This was a known fact. And this bolt pistol was an Ultramarines relic.

A Chapter was dispatched (I forget who) to reclaim the relic and restore order.
Everything goes to plan, order is restored, and then they get their hands on the relic.
It's a bolt pistol alright, but it's not from the Ultramarines. It's got the Eye of Horus on it. It's not the Ultramariens who liberated the planet -- It was Horus! The history had been changed and no one knew. No one at all.

>Cleopatra was a sham (she was hellenistic)
I don't really get this sentiment. Yes, the Argead and Ptolemaic dynasties were different from the Achaemenid one that immediately preceded them. Yes, the Ptolemaic kings did not speak the same language or practice all the same traditions as most of their Egyptian subjects. But by the time of Cleopatra they had reigned Egypt for hundreds of years. They had adopted many of the local traditions, and many of Hellenic traditions had changed and become normalized. Many Ptolemaic descendants had married non-Hellenes and formed family.

I don't see why people interpret the late Ptolemaic dynasty as a sham or "not Egyptian" when by Cleopatra's era they had been very much integrated as just another facet of an Egyptian society they had been the political, economic and cultural center of for more than two hundred years.

The people running AoS are smarter than the leftovers running 40k. You put your best people on developing your new products, basic business.

AoS was a completely new product, and a big risk AND had a really rocky start, apparently due to GW's shitty management system where people at various corporate levels didn't talk to each other.

That is why AoS works better mechanically too.

Also AoS hasn't suffered from the 'Space Marines Sell Well = We'll Make More Space Marines' circular logic that 40k has over the years. It is new, Stormcast have barely been around longer than the rest of the AoS factions and a lot of those have been getting totally new model ranges, which always sell well.

You're underestimating just how fuck-ugly your average Imperial citizen is. In one of the Genestealer Cults novels, an Imperial Guardsmen sees hybrids posing as an Imperial monastic order and all he notices is how much stronger and healthier they look compared to the (actually human) citizens of the town he just passed through. Due to the complete lack of work-safety standards, massive industrial waste issues and general squalor the lowest levels of human society are exposed to (which is where the Cults generally originate) the average human may have lost all their hair, have a weird skin colour and be covered in lumps from tumors kept in check by space-medicine laced into their corpse-starch based diet.

Also, in terms of fluff, the Fourth Gen hybrids often actually have hair/no real outwards differences from actual Humans, the baldness, purple skin and forehead ridges are a stylistic thing for the miniatures and the art.

Also the Imperium is a totalitarian state, its citizens are hideously uninformed as to the wider state of the galaxy, all they're fed in a lot of cases is Eclessiastical sermons and propaganda, neither of which are particularly information-rich.

An Ordo Xenos inquisitor might be able to instantly spot the tell-tale signs of a genestealer hybrid but for the average citizen, their "betters" may have decided that talk of alien infiltrators might be likely to spread panic and the proles should be "protected from themselves" and not told of the possibility. Their church leaders may have decided that the very idea that aliens could corrupt and subvert the Sacred Human Form is heresy and anyone talking of the idea should be burnt etc. etc. etc.

The Harlequins are outsiders even to the Ynnari who they help. But they give aid to Drukhari and Eldar too so that isn't unique, they follow the orders of a whimsical god. Cegorach was always an outsider, that was why he managed to escape The Fall and hide.

Death Jesters represent 'death' as a concept but not as a literal being like Ynnead. They also represent Cegorach's interpretation of death, which is why they don't just shoot you dead, they shoot you in the foot so you stumble into your comrade who was lining up a missile launcher shot, causing him to fall and launch it into the side of a passing Leman Russ.

The issue I have with that concept is that they really shouldn’t be considered veterans as a whole, since it doesn’t make sense that most CSM are heresy era, most should come from chapters/companies that have betrayed much later, unless we are meant to view the CSM as a ridiculously small faction, even more than the Tau. I mean, I know that time doesn’t mean anything in the warp etc. but the ones that survived for actual 10k years and still wage war to the imperium should be a handful, not the bulk of the army

Nah, they're a lot stronger.
In Shroud of Night a basic Intercessor is stronger than a Chaos Marines who was renowned amongst his squad for being stupid strong with Chaos blessings.

As long as the system is based on a d6 they can’t really go and represent that in that amount of detail, as shown by the Orks being stronger than humans but weaker than marines being represented for years with them having S3 (with Furious Charge) until this edition when it was made S4

I think there's a distinction between veterans in general and votlw. I must disagree with the anon your answering too. I think chosen are enough to represent veterans. They have the extra A and access to all the cool gear. It's a bit dumb that votlw is a stratagem and not an upgrade like it used to be.

>Dark Reapers are the part of the C'Tan Nightbringer that got imbedded in Khaine
Ok, that’s news to me (though it’s not really that unlikely, since I’m not an Eldar player though I’m considering eventually adding a wraith detachment to my harlies because I really like the models
That sounds pretty cool

>Iirc Tau don't use sentient AI for labor because it would be considered slavery.
What about creating sentient bots just to send them off and die in wars? Surely that would be considered more cruel.

There's a bit in titanicus when a broken and lost reserves squad tries to evade a warhound while helping some civilians which has a similar tone and it's amazing.
