Ok, continuing to attempt to make a non-Battle suit based Tau list.

This is what I've got thus far, trying to spam the shit out of missiles because I think missiles are cool, Seekers seem like an answer to not having battlesuit based dedicated anti armor, and all the indirect fire seems neat to run with so many units running around.

I get it's not optimal, but I'm trying to figure out if it's playable.

In comparison to the the last 3 editions 8th has made a solid effort to balance the game.
With the annual Chapter Approve point changes, the Big FAQ's and the smaller one the game has stayed pretty healthy, the space marine 2.0 was definitely a shit show but the change to combat doctrines was very good way to balance it.

There are 3 primary guard archetypes, tanks, mechanized, and blob.

For instance, you can get 36 guard squads (with accompanying officers) at just under 2000 points. That is 360 men. Also between orders and their cost guardsmen are some of the best point per model in the game.

Depends on the context.

Anyone with half a brain and a TAC list will murder you by playing objectives and tying up your tanks, so at worst you present them with an easy win and a boring game.
If you're playing bullshit matches at your mates' place or a casual pickup game at the LGS, that's fine. If you're in a tournament, that's kind of a dick move because people expect serious opposition.

I don't play nids so take this with a grain of salt, but you have some smaller options for your synapse like neurothropes

>>72221608
For Tyranids you'd want to mostly take Hormagaunts as the bulk of your swarm. Termagaunts can help as backline screens, and Gargoyles for deep-striking distractions and support. Venomthropes can provide hit penalties for your blobs, which should give be plenty for them to get in close.

Depending on how much you want to stretch the hoard angle, Genestealers are also excellent melee troops, which can help supplement Hormagaunts and take out harder targets. Zoanthropes can also help provide synapse and anti-tank.

As far as HQs go, your best bet would be Malanthropes for a similar stealth penalty Venomthropes give, Neurothropes for psychic support, or Genestealer Broodlords for a fairly dangerous melee punch.

I wouldn't suggest Tervigons, as they tend to be mediocre for what they bring to the table

I'll have to find the vod of it, but there was a crazy infantry spam Nid player from a Canberra tournament that played against knights that practically dictated his opponents movement.
Stuff like surrounding his gallants with gaunts but staying 4" away so the knights couldn't heroically intervene and fallback in their turn, and since they're were playing on the clock the Nid player was mathhammering in his head whether it was worth wasting time shooting his small stuff, or to just skip it and save time for later.
The Nid player played to the objective and trounced the knights.

You have small bug options for synapse.

>can their little dudes just spam the board and still remove tanks?
That's where you'll start running into problems. Not on their own, no. However, with clever use of psychic buffs and unusual equipment (toxic glands) you might make some okay-ish tank killers, and tie up the tanks you cant kill with 90 gaunts. Alternatively, bite the bullet and bring a few carnifexes. They're dirt cheap, they're the smallest of the big bugs, and make excellent tank murderers.

Probably just a mix of headcannon and flanderization. Iron Warriors being siege specialists means them using the siege-focused power armor makes sense, which combined with the fact that Iron Warrior fluff says they cut off mutations and are slightly on the more practical side as far as chaos marines go leads to the assumption that they'd still try and use what works. That gets expanded out over time into them preferring it as general purpose armor, when lorewise it probably is just a handful of expert veterans that have managed to keep full sets of Mk III armor in such good condition.

That, and it gives them a more distinct look compared to other chaos legions, like how you sometimes get people giving Alpha Legion marines Mk IV helmets to give them a slightly more tactical look.

Toxin Sacs do give you a method to take out tanks with Hormagaunts. It raises their cost quite a bit, but it does mean that their attacks that do get through will deal double their normal damage.

The only tiny model they have that I'd really classify as dedicated anti-tank though are spore mines, which can deep strike in fairly large and cheap blobs and dish out a decent number of mortal wounds

speaking of, does this seem overpowered or broken for my spore-based nid army? the rule would only be used in fluffy open play games with my friends.

ADAPTATION
Ability: Buoyant Gas Bladders

Add 1" of movement to all POLYP units with the keyword FLY. This adaptation does not apply to Tyranid models with wings. In addition, biovores with the Polyp keyword gain the FLY keyword due to their bulbous gas sacks.

Because of their alternate evolutionary path, the majority of a tyranid army with the Polyp keyword must be composed of units which relate to spore mines, spores, or psychic synapse units. Polypian invasion does not spawn countless gaunts, or heavy combat organisms such as carnifexes

Carnifex suffered a lot from scale creep, and the lack of rules for Tyranids to properly bulk up their statlines.

Pop quiz.

Who would break into the Imperial Palace more quickly? Would it be:
a) Perturabo, the Lord of Iron, famed as the galaxy's greatest siegemaster, at the head of his Legion of siege specialists and supported by another eight posthuman Legions, several Titan Legions, the Dark Mechanicum, and the myriad daemonic powers of the Empyrean. Or...
b) A lone haemonculus a little bit off its kilter, stranded on Terra with nothing but a box of scraps and an underhive full of human bodies.

I would phrase it an extra inch of movement for any unit with the Fly keyword whose movement is under a certain threshold. Most winged flyers tend to be a lot faster than things like venomthropes or spore mines, so you could probably have it apply to any with a movement characteristic of 7" or less.

It probably wouldn't be overpowered, given that of your options it only really makes it slightly easier to get charges off with Spore Mines by letting them get slightly closer. Biovores being able to fall back and shoot as well as hop over buildings with their guns that don't need visibility is probably the stronger benefit, but it's still quite niche

People liked Helsreach, and his Night Lord series became basically the benchmark for CSM novels in 40k.

as everyone else has already pointed out that army is not actually very good, any anyone with half a brain is going to beat you. you can run a similar list by ditching the hellhounds in favor of troops in chimeras, and a handful of tank commanders are gonna do a better job than spamming russes. with the extra points you can ally in some other faction's tanks to supplement it; exorcists are basically russes but better, and admech tanks are amazing firepower for their points.

I don't know why people think humans are evil for doing what they do in this fictional universe. Considering what they face against, which are literal daemons that posses and kill everything in their path, Ork hordes who want nothing but war, and other aliens who want to kill and torture. It's understandable why humans take the measures they take. Humanity had to adapt to their circumstances. They are just trying to survive in a galactic scale just like any animal in the animal kingdom does. No one calls Tigers evil, and no one calls a dog evil just because it bites you. It probably went through some tough times and you need to give it space or it's probably scared of you.

I guess so? I just always found it cooler to make conversions and kitbashing from cheaper models because I always wanted to save money. Being a kid into 40k, it was pretty uch a necessity, and I guess it just carried into adulthood. And it coincidentally means that the models will be unique, which is always nice.

Kinda off topic but probably one of the most unintentionally funny bits in Thousand Sons was when a thousands son captain pulled a bunch of Custode jet bikers out of the sky.
It was first-person and read something like this
>gad damn wolves just fuck off
>wait what's those shiny things flying about

The indices will probably just be the stuff FW was working on before GW told them to stop. We know that Fires of Cyraxus was basically about to come out when it got put into permanent hiatus by GW, and there's a lot of models floating out there that didn't make it into a codex and don't necessarily require you to make a new version of their associated army's codex just for them.

I see that someone that wrote this never worked in an archive . a B3 would be like the second secretary to the second most important official in the empire,someone like a vice lord of terra,

and the signature s even more pathethic . g34-a1? so no date, no case number, no scriptor number. G is suppose to be the sub code for sitations review, but with no sub codes for sector, planet case . a the a1 means it is , which is comical considering this isnt even coming from terra or an archive hub, the first case of that type within the given time span.


this is a DAILY report signature, before it joins the main archive .

IX.2.GC.24/2020

IXth court district,
2 second division of the court
GC the type of case
24/2020 the daily date of this months that marks starting of the case.

If the thing was to be sent out to another court, it would have to include, archivist signature, date of sending of the case(not just when it started in the original court), the full archive signature in the original court archive, and those are courts in the same country. in the empire, it would also require the signature of the planet, all the astrophat stations(including the full signatures of each astrophat).

the thing should be pages long.

>In truth, though, as I made my way towards my allocated throne, none of those attendees captured my attention. The three figures sitting opposite Garadon dominated the entire chamber. These were the Minotaurs, wearing the same burned-bronze armour their brothers in the basilica had done. None of these were Primaris, but, just like the others, the condition of their equipment looked far superior to the battle-hammered Imperial Fists they faced. They sat ramrod straight, fists clenched, as if perpetually resisting the onset of combat-rage. Unlike all others there, they kept their helms on, a gesture that I found more theatrical than threatening, but which nevertheless added to the aura of mystery they seemed determined to carry with them.

>Moloc was, of course, the centrepiece of the display. He wore Terminator armour, of the old Tartaros configuration, which made him massive even amid the rest of that heavily armoured company. Whereas Valoris was a picture of grizzled splendour, and Garadon carried himself with a plain kind of martial dignity, Moloc looked like some barbarian warlord out of the legends of pre-unification Terra. His plate was clearly of the highest quality, but had been engineered with a feral aesthetic, one that conjured up images of sacrificial rites and arcane combat-rituals. To look at him was to catch a glimpse of a world of riddles and myths, of burning braziers and bloodied axe heads, of secrets locked within secrets, bound about with labyrinths of iron and stone.

>I have encountered many formidable warriors in my time. Valoris, of course, was reckoned the greatest alive in the Imperium save the primarch himself. And yet, just there, in that place, I can say without hesitation that Asterion Moloc, Chapter Master of the Minotaurs, exuded the most powerful stench of violence I had ever been in the presence of.

Mandrake's are fucking weird. I read their fluff and thought "Why would these ever be under the command of/cooperate with dark eldar?" They're weird boogeymen, but I can take a squad of them and they hold objectives and are inspired by my HQ leadership auras? There's a lot of narrative/gameplay dissonance in the game in general, but most units you can take have clear motivations and reason to be a part of the army they're in. Mandrakes baffle me in this regard.

Actually the new Siege of Terra series unironically is making it look like the Heresy only failed because of Fulgirl, Abbadon, and Angron being Grade A retards, and makes Pert actually look competent somehow.

Because they still need pacts and alliances as they fight the other mandrake clans.

Mandrakes, like everyone else who lives in Commoragh and is not a Kabalite, Covenite, or Cultist, are mercenaries. They join with real space raids to get paid, usually in living bodies. What they do with them nobody knows, probably some kind of ritual sacrifice or cannibalism as they do not eat otherwise.

there's not really any cheating with freehand, it's just be good at art. making sure you have a very good brush helps though.

>> No.72224042

Here's a tip: Since freehanding is literally just normal painting but applied to a mini you can practice your freehanding an infinite number of times just on normal paper until you're confident enough to try it out on the model.

Alternatively using a very thin gundam marker or whatever they're called, I've heard, especially if you're freehanding text. As in, writing.

Do you guys try to make the lore if your dudes at least consistent with the rest of the setting? For example, you wouldn’t make a band of CSM who were some how redeemed by the imperium but they still summon demons as good allies. That would be far fetched and weird. Right? The point I’m getting at is your dudes are your dudes but is it possible to take things too far?

Banter aside, as far as i can see, ironically enough Pert and Dorn are in the same situation, where everyone wants to do their own thing, giving them, who are only trying to keep things together and coherent, a big headache. I actually kinda like Perty sometimes, as for all his butthurt, he is a fairly competent strategist and tragic character, whose only problem is that he just can't get over himself. Simply speaking, the one reason why Dorn and the IF are ultimately ahead of the IW and Perturabo, is because they are not afraid to play second fiddle and are more focused on logic and necessity, which is why they ultimately made the better choices.

Yeah in one of the Siege of Terra books when it goes on and on about how Abbadon kept fucking pestering Pert to change his plan and assault the Lion Wall or w.e (which would be falling directly into Dorn's Trap) to the point where he got Fulgrim and the entire EC legion on board meaning Perty had no choice but to go through with it really made me suddenly realize just why Perty is so fucking butthurt all the time and actually sympathize with him. Abbadabbadoo has the fucking GALL to blame Pert for his plan failing too, and not just off handedly he has a whole "PERTURABOOOOOOOOOO!!!" moment.

The Heresy failed because, as Lorgar and Abaddon see it, Horus wasn't strong enough to see it through and remain his own man. And as Dorn assesses after beating back Fulgrim's assault, the failure to harness the daemon primarchs makes them useless allies. Ironically, through the SoT series Abaddon has been waking up to the same realization as Dorn.

See, I know that's what the BL authors WANT us to take from the series but when they write in there that Abaddon spent literally the entire planing phase of the first assault trying to convince Perty to charge head first into Dorn's obvious trap, which Perty states is a trap, and then blames Pert when his assault directly into Dorns trap fails and literally says it was all Pert's idea in the first place and Pert somehow 4d chessed him into falling for it makes me believe that any conclusion Abaddon has ever come to is complete lunacy.

I highly recommend reading the "Path of the Dark Eldar" or at least reading the middle book, path of the Incubus. Long story short, a Haemonculus who helped to revive a very old, and very dead DE noble had to find a new home, he went towards the daemons, not away from them, something that scared the shit out off his Wrack servant, but just as the Wrack was loosing faith, giant black tentacles saved them, eh so to speak, and they allowed themselves to be taken by said hentai fule to the land of the Mandrakes. He had a favor to cash in on from one of the Mandrake kings, and just set up a new shop there, using even Mandrake parts to create grotesques. Anyway the point is the Mandrakes have their own Commargh in the shadows, where life is much like normal Commargh, just more violent as their is no Mandrake Emperor like their is in Commargh with Vect. It seems the Mandrake kings pimp their subjects out to the Kabals for services, which the Kings reap, as they try and kill off the other nobility till only they are left to rule. How far are they willing to go? Well two turn to Chaos, openly pledging allegiance to Nurgle and Tzeentch, the Nurgle Mandrake even had a rusty scythe as a weapon. Modern lore shows their once was a Mandrake Emperor, and so there is again. So they probably can't be trusted as much anymore to take their doggy bags and run home to the shadows, now that their unified, they are going to start asking for more, till they get the lions share of the spoils, and maybe just start carrying out raids on their own, which should lead to some interesting tension between Vect and the Decapitateor.
