Is it just me, or is the 40k Armory in the OP not filled out at all when I open it?

>> No.72566770

>>72566029
It's just one attack roll. The roll gets +1 bonus die for each Troop in the mob, up to a maximum of half the number of Troops in the mob total. This ruling seems weird but you can also have mobs split attacks to different targets and with a sufficiently large mob can have the full bonus apply to each attack. This is on pg. 324 of the C7 revised rulebook and pg. 209 of the Ulysses rulebook (where it is also limited by Tier). The base attack is the value for one of the Troops in the mob. This statistically makes it much more likely to hit the player(s) and more likely to shift.

The roll for hitting part I get, the damage is what was not clear to me.
What was not clear is, ie. 10 ork boys hitting with choppas, ok ay they have WS 7 plus 5 so it goes to 12 dices to hit.
But after they hit, regarding rolling for damage, assuming a choppa, which one of these three is the case?
> A single 7 + 3ED
> 10 rolls of 7 + 3ED
> A single 7 + 3ED + 5ED (from half the mob size)

Well that's both stupid and not in line with the lore I'm familiar with, which features both single arms regiments and combined arms regiments. The 8th Edition Astra Militarum Index has this to say:

"When the Imperial Guard go to war, they do so organised into regiments. Each regiment is largely uniform in composition, meaning an infantry regiment will be made up primarily of foot soldiers, with little in the way of heavy artillery or armour. Likewise, an artillery regiment will be made up entirely of serried batteries of big guns and other long-ranged weaponry, and will contain little, if any, infantry. If an Imperial Guard regiment were forced into battle individually it would struggle, for each homogeneous force is vulnerable without support – infantry by themselves can be smashed by armoured foes, while tanks alone are poor at holding ground, finding themselves prone to ambushes, especially in areas of dense terrain where manoeuvrability suffers. Such is the immense size of the forces deployed by the Imperial Guard, however, that the idea of lone regiments is preposterous. Every Imperial Guard army is composed of many regiments, and a wise commander will marshal his myriad divisions to fight as a combined- arms force – drawing men, vehicles, elite squads and even abhumans from different regiments, brigading them together as suits availability and the needs of the battlefront."

Which suggests that combined arms regiments are not the norm, but also not actually forbidden. For that matter, even Only War can't stay consistent on the idea that combined arms regiments don't exist. Hammer of the Emperor clearly describes the Scintillan Fusilliers as being combined arms units. The Scintiallan 17th is specifically stated to be an armoured regiment yet also has infantry and valkyrie drop troops on top of the tank companies, plus a couple of Baneblades.

Playing a Thousand Sons sorcerer for the first time in a BC game. My GM is handing out xp very slowly in a slow paced game (no more than 50xp per session unless we're finishing a compact). I've got a force sword that I'm decent with and neural lightning as my primary combat power, along with a suit of terminator armor that I got lucky and managed to snag. So far all I've been buying are a few additional powers while saving up for rating increases. Are there any must-have talents I should be making a priority with my limited xp?

Question about some rogue trader weaponupgrades and equipments.

Compact (-20 to Find; 1/2 Clip Size; -1 Damage)
and
Micro (Basic > Pistol; -30 to Find + 2 Steps Rarer for Ammunition)
make the weapon smaller but is is ok to have both on one weapon?

Armour upgrades like Concealed Weapon and Tool Mount mention that weapons need to be Compact or Micro but equopment Concealed Holster mentioned "Compact Pistols".
Did this mean my weapon muss be a compact Pistol?

Is there eny reason why i should take Photo Visor/Contacts, if Preysense Goggles does the same but +20?
The Preysense upgrade for helmed make this question even worse if you get the best quali for free finding enemys.

Telescopic Sight rises some questions. Why is this even a thing if there are Omni-Scope or Rangefinder that do the same but more?

OK /tg/, I want to run a Dark Heresy game where my players all play assassins working as an execution force for a Hereticus Inquisitor as he cleans up the nobility of whatever hive world he found a conspiracy on.

My question: How can a group of three to five players all play assassins different enough that I don't have to deal with a fistful of identical edgy retards insisting they're the most deadly and getting nothing done? Should I demand they come from specific Temples like the Vindicare of the Culexus? Pre-construct characters to choose from? Start them off at a higher power-level so they have more room to diversify? How much leeway is too much in this scenario?

So in the default WANG setting do the absolvers even have Primaris since it's sounds like the Crusade definitely hasn't gotten to the Gilead system to actually give them Primaris. Or did the Rogue Trader bring some Primaris with him when he showed up?

Here's a question at my table: if an attacker makes a successful all out attack with furious assault, but then that attack is parried/dodged, does the attacker get the second all out attack?

>>72573215
The foot combat rule set is somewhat exhaustive but fairly straight forward and a fun simulator, even with squad-level fighting. Even if the squad fights multiple individuals and squads, most special weapons are straight forward, reloading is rarely an issue, neither is range, and hp works easy for both. The space rule set is even more cumbersome and can become a not so fun simulator. I still like it a lot, but when you have multiple boss-type enemies with special weapons like torpedoes and hangers with a lot of status effects, mutiny rolls, 2-4 different weapon profiles, rules on boarding, etc, even with the abbreviated rolling guide in Battlefleet Kronus it's a lot to track. I made a some 30-40 page abbreviated guide for everyone at the table and it still can get really slow.

My GM said (like i did as a GM back in the days) that all players have to obay the rules unless they roleplay themself out of there reach.
So far we said: Omniscopes are the scope but the rangefinder is a seperate Computer helping the aim. So we need to find both weaponparts and someone to build it on the weapon. Still at the end weighs the sum of the parts but gives also all the bonis.

I found by the way the "rule" or more the idea behind compact and micro. Compact just cuts some parts to make it smaller (that why the ammo goes down) but micro is techharasy and scales the gun down without losing much of the power. Oddly its keep the clipsize by downgrading the bullets.

One I've used that's a subtle sort of spook is space and time inconsistencies. Take something that should be constant, like the body it's orbiting or NPCs they're exploring the wreck with, and have it change periodically. Doors don't necessarily open up to the same place each time.

WanG is the shiny new object and was released last month. It's supposedly decent but currently there's no adventures and it's got quite a few typos/issues that are being worked out in an errata to be released soon. Cubicle 7 just announced today that they're cranking out a new free adventure soon.

The FFG series have been around a long time and have a ton of content but they're quite specialized in what you're doing. WanG on the other hand allows Space Marines jamming out in the same party as an Ork Nob and an Eldar Warlock allowing your players more liberty in playing/doing what they want to do.

Depends on the enemy, but the first scenario is the correct execution. A basic Troop, Elite, or mob of Troops works as P1 > Enemy > P2-P4.
Adversaries and Champions may use Ruin Actions at the end of a player's turn. The book says this is specifically not another turn but considering the standard Ruin Actions are to Move or Attack, it's pretty close. So you can have P1 > Enemy > P2 >Enemy Ruin Action > P3 > Enemy Ruin Action >P4 > Enemy Ruin Action assuming you have enough Ruin available.

Blood Pact is a good start for non berzerkers. You could have a mix of zerk'd out retards in backed up by highly disciplined troops for maximum value. Most people falling to Khorne basically have periods where they become blithering idiots who just start attacking everything near them interspaced with moments of calm and clarity.

You could have a timid individual who is seen butchering innocents then dutifully cleaning it up wondering how anyone could do such a thing. You could also have characters that are instinctually drawn to a future scenario that will lead to combat with no idea why they feel that way (not exactly Tzeentchian but a flavor of it). Seeking perfection blurs into the realm of Slaanesh, so Khorne has to focus more on martial pride and honor. Extremely disciplined individuals who obey your commands without any heed for their own lives and then afterwords bathing in the viscera of the enemy. Assassins and Serial Killers "worship" Khorne through their slaughter as well.

I had an idea for Dark Heresy session 0, all the characters will be individually interviewed by an interrogator to help them flesh out their characters. It will basically be a job interview with the obvious questions like what are their greatest strengths and weaknesses, and include a rudimentary psych eval. Hopefully it will make it easier for them to get in character while they fill in the stats.

Question is, how do I make it interesting for the other players? Or should I just schedule a 1 on 1 session 0 for each player to circumvent the problem? The interrogator could also then ask things that the player might not want other players to know the answer to.

Also, right after the the whole Goge Vandire thing, the 1st thing the Confederation of light does is begin the "time of waning" followed by attempting to worship an ork in the war of the beast. Sebastion Thor also get's his head cut off by a necron.

For the C7 release:
Salvo is the trait on certain weapons. If the weapon has a Salvo Rating of " - " then it uses a point of Ammo and needs to be reloaded every time it's fired (grenade launchers and missile launchers are the most common instances). If the weapons has a Salvo Rating of 1 or more, then you can do one of two things: Full Auto or Spray Shot.

Full Auto grants you a number of bonus dice on your Ballistic Skill roll equal to the Salvo Rating when firing at a single target.

Spray Shot works in combination with a Multi-Attack action to fire at multiple targets and reduces the DN Penalty for the Multi-Attack by the Salvo Rating (only the Penalty, it cannot reduce the base DN of the attack even if the Salvo Rating is high). As a special case for Spray Shot, if you're shooting at Mobs you reduce the DN Penalty by 2 for each point of Ammo you spend instead (you can spend as much Ammo as you have when attacking Mobs specifically).

Regardless of what you do with your Salvo, you have to spend a point of Ammo and Reload (a simple action) afterward to be able to use your weapon again. If you're out of Ammo when you go to Reload you need to acquire more Ammo before you can use the weapon again.

Ammo and Reloading are abstract. You only lose Ammo/need to reload when you Salvo or suffer a Complication that forces you to Reload.

>>72609257
This seems like a lot to remember to fire. I kind of like that semi or full auto in FFG is based on the degrees of success to add more bullets. Is there a simpler way to express Salvo?

>> No.72609832

>>72609716
It's not all that difficult in practice from my experience. If you're using C7's pretty dire Ammo rules (you carry either 3 or half your Strength points of Ammo total, points are typed so if you have a plasma- and boltpistol you need to delineate how much of each you have) Salvo options should really be used sparingly. Basic shooting attacks don't use Ammo or Salvo.

If you want a brief on Salvo it's just
> Shooting one thing? Add dice equal to Salvo.
> Shooting multiple things? Reduce the DN penalty by Salvo or by 2 if it's mobs.
> Salvo uses 1 Ammo and you have to reload.

Stumpy the Veteran Guardsman

Sheer good (or bad) luck has seen this veteran of the Imperium’s wars across many battlefields, fighting as well as his gore ending up everywhere. Fortune has left this guardsman with only augmentic limbs and Many parts of his body being replaced with mechanical organs. His left leg was chewed off by nids, his left arm was crushed by a Necron Warrior, his right leg was blown to bits by a spare land mine, and rumor has it that his right arm just hopped off and ran away. One day, a rebel stabbed out his eye. After getting a replacement, the next day, another rebel stabbed the other. He really seems to get along with the regiment’s Enginseer.

Sounds like a grunt-version of Colonel "Iron Hand" Straken. I wonder how much human the frontline generals of the Imperium really are, I always imagine officers that worked their way up, are more machine than man.
We got my own Straken NPC, who is a bit different. Lord-General Moerven, leader of the Kohuegian Campaign is a head in a jar. He was victim of a Night Lord attack but they were able to save his head.

Well in the lore they "sank their teeth into their victims flesh". In their own realm of Aelindrach they live like their Commorragh brethren, with housing, and furnishings, but when outside it, they either don't want to keep their form whole, or can't. little fun fact, their realm is basically a fantasy realm of the fae, if you can't come to grasp with it existing and yourself inside it, you will just keep falling into oblivion.

Bull, a guardsmen, for whom the regiment has made the trouble of getting to medical care, can expect of getting cybernetic replacements. The higher-up, the more likely he will be found worthy. A cybernetic guardsmen does go against the spirit of ordinary soldiers facing the horrors of the 40k universe, but it is no impossibility. I don`t think such character would be a good starting character as he kinda has to endured decades of war and shown exemplatory bravery to be granted Straken-level cybernetics, but for high-level Only War games? Sure, a having a Skitarri-guardsmen hybrid would fit in.

No, It clearly says that combined arms regiments are forbidden, but different regiments will work together under more or less ad-hoc battle-groups. Or a regiment might be given some special gear for a specific mission or battle.
Over the course of a campaign, that can last years if not decades, the distinction between the regiments within the battle group would probably have been washed out due to casualties and increased unit cohesion, so seeing a battle where infantry, tanks and artillery all work in unison, wouldn't be a rare sight.

I think you are confusing replacement organs and mechanical prosethetics with uber-science RoboCop Iron Hand Straken. I myself did not bring up Iron Hands Straken with his bullshit living metal body or whatever it is.
Follow here. To say that a person could survive many horrific injuries across many battlefields. Is that Mary Sue? Is it Mary Sue to say that this person would receive medical prosthetics?
I ask now, are real historically known figures Mary Sues? Because they survive a lot of horrific injuries? Assuming a historical figure, like Adrian Carton de Wiart, for example, had access to medical technology that could replace missing organs/limbs, would be be a Mary Sue to you for taking or having these devices given to him?

The word "forbidden" nor any words or phrases with similar meaning appear anyway in that description, so I don't know whence you get that it clearly says so. What it does say is that each regiment is largely uniform in composition, such that they are primarily a single arm, but they may still have elements of other arms. Moreover the description still allows for exceptions existing, as it's speaking in general terms rather than exclusive ones. On top of that combined arms regiments are also extant in the lore: Jouran Dragoons in Storm of Iron, Jantine Patricians in First and Only, the Cadians in Forges of Mars. They exist, they're just not common.

Yep and this was FFG breaking the lore completely to make them a balanced PC option. All prior established lore has them being able to stop any and all psychic powers. The only example I can think of where a blank's blankness was overcome is Bequin getting BTFOed by a Daemon possessed Titan.

>Well, I guess I don't understand why your character couldn't suppress the damn astronomican by pissing on it if they're a null.

What do you mean "enough"? If a null is intrinsically capable of shutting down all phenomena, it would work regardless of powers involved. A single null would, by your logic, shut down Big E in the height of his power.

Which begs the question why Horus didn't just tape a couple of blanks on his armour when he went to rip his papa a new one. Would have probably been a lot simpler to beat him down.

Nah anon, it's a scale. In the same way that psykers have some extra soul that lets them control powers of the warp, the lack of soul nulls have also varies. Not all blanks are created equal.
