Carcaradons for best loyalist chapter

>> No.72696161

So how does one play a melee army in this edition? Are there any guides or resources I can use to learn how not to just get my ass destroyed? Cause I'll be honest while I will definitely use the shooty parts of my codex I like the melee units too and really want to make good use of them, but everything I've seen and heard shows the vast majority of melee getting ass raped while some few are able to succeed. Why these few succeed I do not know. it generally seems like they just run in blow their load and kill one thing and then die and it never seems like a good trade to me. I get that you can't do pure melee in this edition, but how does one do an army that has a significant melee component?

Depends on what faction you are playing, but it mainly comes down to your movement position and who you are setting up your charges so that you can either consolidate into another unit, or wrap the current one so you can stay safe in their shooting phase.

No, people hate primaris because they were shoehorned into the lore in the most hamfistdly retarded way, are a big fuck you to space marine players as they replace all your old models and will eventually cause older space marine models to get straight up squated, don't match the aesthetic of space marines at all and look generic and uninspired as fuck.

Based on the grognards I've seen, if they were just bigger tacticals most old players wouldn't buy them. The only way to get them to buy them is by making the units into something else. Maybe in a couple years we'll see an upgrade sprue with special weapons options and some chainswords and then they'll do a box rerelease, but that won't happen until after they kill the Tactical Marine box.

Short people with a persecution complex perceive anyone who is taller than them as a threat and project that onto the tabletop. Primaris units don't replace any manlet units except for tacticals (which is still debatable, considering tacticals can bring special weapons and intercessors are limited to bolters), "primaris only" is not a rule that exists in the books and even in-setting most chapters use combined arms, utilizing both primaris and manlet marines simultaneously.

You are going to need to specify which army you play as different ones have different ideal ways to achieve that. For most armies that aren't chaos with a posessed bomb, orks using da' jump, slamgunius and friends, or genestealers, melee isn't too viable. In general though, it requires dedicating a lot of your list to making it happen and building some redundancy.

They're wearing a mix of MkIV and MkVIII armour, and are a bit taller. They match just fine. The only reason you're mad is because they don't come with a back banner and you can't use your Tacticals as count-as so you can get a free rules upgrade with your old models.

When Marines were first dreamed up they were regular humans in special armour and were basically thugs with authority. The crusading knight thing came way later and they honestly draw a lot of visual cues from WFB's chaos warrior design.

Basically "what they were supposed to be" and what they are now are so far removed from each other that what old marines are and what Primaris are is basically the same damn thing.

Sisters of Battle. I like the Zephyrim, a lot. Quasi Angels descending from the sky and shanking a bitch just appeals to me. Repentia are also kinda neat, though I'm going to be converting the fuck out of them cause the models look like ass.

I get the rhino in first thing, and that helps make the charge and eat overwatch for the repentia, but once they've murder fucked whatever they are attacking they end up just standing their with their dicks waving in the wind and it seems like they're just going to get shot.

Zephyrim I'm not worried about getting in, and thy're at least marginally more survivable than the repentia (which isn't saying much) but same problem.

I've seen things about tri pointing and capturing units, but even then that's just delaying the inevitable and seems really niche cause I've never actually seen it pulled off in a real game in person or on a battle report.

If you want them to be more of a pink colour to the word bearers more MAROON red i think they look good, maybe a light drybrush to catch the armors edges to give it more depth.
If you're not after the pinky colour just hit the entire armour with a drybrush of your desied colour, the dark pink will still look good by adding some shadows.

Honestly most people I know who play marines are fine with them. But to be fair me and all my friends are fairly new to the game and aren't as invested in the old lore or models. I personally can recognize and acknowledge the issues with the lore behind primaris marines, and I also understand some of the frustration about how they are on the tabletop, but I think they look nice (with several exceptions that look like ass, but every army has that) and I don't really have a problem with the inevitable complete replacement and phasing out of manlets within the next few years.

>Basically "what they were supposed to be" and what they are now are so far removed from each other that what old marines are and what Primaris are is basically the same damn thing.

I was more thinking about the rules. Marines were billed as being able to take all comers so they have options where primaris are more like aspect warriors and can only really do 1 job with no options.

Since you mention it tho yes people also dislike them dropping the space knight look in favor of a more generic look. There's a reason this picture is so popular, people like the gothic combination with scifi.

>> No.72696316

>>72696267
If you want to go melee with Sisters, go Bloody Rose. The extra attacks are much needed to compensate for your low strength.

Other than that, use Miracle Dice to make those long charges (like when deep striking Zephyrim), and make sure you keep your Repentia properly buffed.

Consider using Penitent Engines, or the other one I forget the name to, as distraction Carnifexes to keep the heat off the Repentia since their saves don't go far to keeping them around.

And basically consider most melee units in this game as a bomb: you light the fuse, throw them at the enemy and watch them explode.

If you can consolidate into new targets (you are using your pile ins and consolidates to trap other units with you into combat, right?) and declare multi-charges to tag multiple units when possible so you can trap on while killing the other.

Melee is all about movement to maximize it's effectiveness, even before you start tossing strats and buffs into the mix.

Primaris are less like aspect warriors and more like 30k Legionnaires, right down to how they fight.

Haven't been able to get a game in with the new sisters codex yet, but their best melee unit to my understanding is repentia. And from the impression I got from the sisters player I played against a bit beforehand, a lot of it comes down to intelligent placement and use of cover. That being said, we were using ITC rules and despite it's flaws the terrain rules are decent because it at least forcing a certain minimum.

No they aren't. They lack the possibility and customization of tacticals, their upgrade packs are shit, and they lack the variation of regular marines. Their shoulderpads were scaled down so they look like generic sci-fi warriors and their gothic/baroque aesthetic has been completely toned down.

You also completely ignored the retarded lore, and you're ignoring the lack of features they have. They are generic and bland. I don't give a shit about count as, they are inferior model kits to tacticals.

Flat joints that allow you to pivot arms up or down on a single plane is not "poseability". Neither is a waist ball socket that allowed you to have the freedom to pose a model turned slightly one way or another before it looked wrong.

Easy posing was the trade off for more dynamic model poses being the default, and you clearly never grew up with metal models or you'd figure out how to repose things on your own instead of crying like a bitch about it online.

And you know what else was generic and bland? The original RTB-01 Marine release. But things improved over time. Now we're a hell of a lot further along than that was with where Primaris started at, but it'll take time (or just some actual effort if you want to convert things) to see the more unique stuff (as mentioned previously when I posted that I suspect that they're trying to establish the baseline now and the future releases later will dive more into unique chapter traits).

>Easy posing was the trade off for more dynamic model poses being the default

Yeah and it's shit because now people's models are homogenized. Every space marine army at my store is basically the same with various coats of paint. the more "dynamic poses" have done nothing but pigeonhole people who don't want to do anything short of taking apart and resembling their model with greenstuff.

>nd you clearly never grew up with metal models or you'd figure out how to repose things on your own instead of crying like a bitch about it online.

I've had a fair share of second hand metal models and yes, reposing them is a bitch and is stupidly retarded. It's why I don't buy metal models. If that was the standard it'd be shit.

I'm not the kind of guy who thinks (new bad old good). 2015 tacticals looked a lot better than older shit.

The Primaris line hasn't re-released any of it's units yet to claim there isn't an improvement on it. Every release in it's line has been an original release based on other parts of Marine design, history (30k and 40k) and boiling it down to a concentrated baseline they can expand on later. The designers have even stated as much because they wanted to go nuts with a lot of detail but Jes Goodwin backed them off of that so they could have room to expand later.

You're looking at the RTB-01 baseline for Primaris. It's functional, basic as hell, and it's not that interesting without a fair bit of work, but it's just a baseline. Stuff takes time to release and even if GW is responding to us wanting melee units and Crusader Squads of Primaris and who knows what else, it won't be ready for years at minimum.

I think the question is what do you want out of the game. It's not quite like a video game where you buy a character and that's your kit. A lot of 40k is about tweaking your army, growing the collection slowly, having fun experimenting different game types and army lists with friends, just painting and enjoying the collection you've put together.
If you play Killteam or have friends that play low point games you could easily have more than one army and see what feels good. If you want to commit to some kind of all-around high end army for tournaments your options might be limited to space marines if you want to be flexible enough to fight off meta shifts.

Nigger your comparing Primaris to models that were released back in the 80's and saying that their lack of features is justifiable because they are somehow equivalents.

Basically an admission that Primaris marines are a huge regression (which they are).

And you don't have anything to back up your retarded claim. That primaris marines are totally going to be brought back up to standards that manlets marines had. There's no reasons to not have that shit on release in the first place.

You're sitting there defending them when you admit that they are flawed in this regard, and your expecting everyone to bank on the idea that they'll totally reverse course on everything that they've spend moving away from with primaris.

>The designers have even stated as much because they wanted to go nuts with a lot of detail but Jes Goodwin backed them off of that so they could have room to expand later.

Everything about primaris that GW have stated has been horseshit, like them insisting they aren't a replacement for regular marines which anyone with two braincels knows for a fact is horseshit at this point.

And none of that means that there will be a return to form with Primaris marines recapturing what people liked about regular marines.

>You're looking at the RTB-01 baseline for Primaris. It's functional, basic as hell, and it's not that interesting without a fair bit of work, but it's just a baseline.

It's why they're shit and generic. Even the upgrade packs are objective downgrades from tactical upgrade packs.

>tuff takes time to release and even if GW is responding to us wanting melee units and Crusader Squads of Primaris and who knows what else, it won't be ready for years at minimum.

stick to lower points games while you learn how to play. Prioritize the hobby over the game so you don't have to be as concerned with rules and can focus more on your own enjoyment of it. Also, know that everyone sucks at every part of 40k at the start, painting, modelling and playing the actual game are all very different skill sets. Pick an army because you like the fluff and the look of it not it's performance in game, what's good and bad in game changes with almost every rules update for that faction. As for converting, check ebay for bits lots and see if any game stores in your area have a bits box, also look into using thermoplastics to make your own basic molds to clone pieces for projects. Two start collecting boxes are probably the best way to start any faction since it get's you a basic battalion and usually enough stuff to play a small game. Kill team is also a great way to start since you can build a basic team with a single troops box for any faction. I also cannot stress taking this all slowly enough. If you buy a bunch of stuff all at once, you will probably burn out quickly, especially since this hobby has a larger initial buy-in than most. The mega in the OP has all of the rules and some painting guides, the GW youtube channel has some good painting tutorials. so pace yourself and enjoy the ride to your enjoyment. And if you ever stop having fun, you can shelf your minis and come back later

And I too wanted proper Death Company. But before that I wanted the ability to run Primaris in Crusader squads and have 20 dudes in Power Armour charging at the enemy holding chainswords and screaming with all the anger their geneseed can muster.

So here's the thing, they did completely stamp out the heresy. It took 500 years for them to do it, but they did it. However despite this Krieg is not a peaceful place, it's war torn to this day. Do you know why? Because the trainees are literally waging war against each other for the honor of being selected to leave Krieg and go and fight for the Emperor. They literally kill themselves and war amonst themselves, all of them 100 percent loyal to the Imperium and emps mind you, in order to make sure that they produce the best possible troops. Every Krieger on every battlefield is a veteran, because they've literally been through a few years of war before the regiment even gets deployed and leaves Krieg.

To be fair they live like that because the administratum and echlesiarchy have taken control of the planet and indoctrinate them from birth to be like that and keep them perpetually in their current state because they are more usefull like that then they would be if they weren't trapped in a never ending penance.

Well I have to go to work in the morning so I'm off and won't be here to debate how good or bad Primaris are.

Thanks for the help on picking between a World Eaters and Word Bearers army. The latter looks quite good, and I don't know if I really want to try doing HH style World Eaters right now. Plus using the HH Word Bearers as neat alternate models for my army is something that'll definitely happen.

>I am comparing the roots of one line to the roots of another. You're comparing the tree of one line to the roots of another.

No that's a retarded analogy. A new model line isn't supposed to be at the level of 30 year old models. They aren't some new standalone army, they are the replacement for CURRENT models, and your acting as if it's okay for them to regress. You can't say it's okay for them to be lacking in features because models in the past were lacking features.

And again, you're making a giant assumption that the direction they will go with primaris, when they MOVED AWAY from what current marines are and CONTINUE to move away with each additional release. Phobos do not fit at all with SM armies, and no, they do not fill the role that scouts filled.

The whole root of this conversation is why people hate primaris marines, continued from the previous thread, and your defense of primaris is that non of the complaints about primaris are valid because they'll totally undo everything they did with them with time. GW's brains didn't reset and they forgot how to make conciseness decisions. Look at the new CSM for an example. The way Primaris marines are now, is a CONSCIOUS decision on GW's part. It's the direction they want to go. There's no reason for them to strip shit away. GW was new at this shit back int the day, they aren't now, so it's not a good defense. They didn't make primaris marines the way they are with the intention of going back. You're a fool if you think otherwise.

Yes, yes it is. The thing is the method of advancement in the Death Korps is 1 part meritocracy and 1 part survival. The path for advancement to say watch master is basically, survive being a trooper, survive being a grenadier, become a watch master. Their officers also are promoted based on competence/survival (which for them tends to be the same thing).

For instance in Dead men Walking the Colonel literally took the dead previous Colonels designation when he was promoted upon that mans death. He'd been around for a while, survived well past the expected life span of Kriegers and was now in charge of the regiment. He actually had a lot of personality, and like 80 percent of that personality was hatred and spite but it was very subtle. He ripped the imperial governor a new asshole at one point, but he wasn't like screaming at him he was just very carefully but intensely explaining why the governer would do what he said or he'd kill him for getting in the way and that the civilian pdf was only good as bullet catchers and that was what he was going to use them as such because his men had more value than those worthless soft civilians. It was pretty kino honestly.

>My point was this is a baseline that has to support Vanilla Marines
That's the biggest load of bull posted here in a while. If you think that primaris are designed as anything but a replacement at this point you are a retard (no offense). That is a line that GW parroted at the beginning and now intercessors and primaris are the only things you see now. Your assertion that they are just there to add and not replace is blatantly false, there are very few units now that don't have a superior primaris equivalents, and more on the way that are just more replacements. You're insinuating that it's because they have to support ALL armies. But vanilla tactical didn't have that problem. You could very easily kit out your models to fit other armies with actual sculpted detail and not just paint jobs.

Again, there was no reason for shit to be stripped away. You seem to think that GW started at square 1 because they are incapable of replicating the features of fucking tacticals. That's not the fucking case, like I said, it's an obvious conscious decision to move in this direction. If what your saying is true, then why are the primaris upgrade packs also complete objective downgrades from the regular upgrade packs.

>Complaining that it can't 1:1 replace the expansive nature of a 30 year old model line is just retarded.

GW is making is using them as a replacement, while also stripping features, that they took away intentionally.

They're ancap mercenary pirates who take anyone who wants to join from tarellian dog soldiers (yet to be converted) to human hive gangers who want a change in life. They can't afford upkeep on big suits, so the largest suit they field is a single ghostkeel, and use lots of piranhas and looted imperial tanks with tau guns stitched on besides.

If you're asking how the Colonel of the Krieg regiment became the Colonel he was part of the regiment as a major before being promoted. If you're asking how he was trained a life time of war and presumably some additional training while in transit on void ships between deployments, which he could have potentially gotten a lot of cause he'd been an officer for a long time at that point in a number of wars.

Ah, you are referring to the former mine forman He never was promoted to any sort of rank, he certainly wasn't a colonel or an officer of any sort. He was taken on the strike force because he had been a mine foreman and claimed to be able to guide them through the mines which they were using to insert strike forces into the city behind necron lines. He wasn't giving orders to the strike group but he was leading them for a bit as a guide giving them directions.

As for the officers the Commisar was not a Krieger, but the commanding officer of the regiment the Colonel absolutely was a Krieger not a non krieg officer seconded over. In some cases officers are seconded over but many krieg regiments have officers who are Kriegers.

Considering we only just got the big Space Marine update last fall, (and assuming we get a new edition announced, as marines always come in the starter) my big prediction for Saturday besides Necrons is that we'll see the first Primaris wave focused on a non-codex compliant chapter. I assume it'll be Blood Angels, since they don't have a living Primarch and I feel like they're gonna stretch the "Guilliman vs the world" scenario as far as they can.

A decent enough number do yes, they're lifelong professional warriors on battlefields where a .75 cal explosive shell is a mediocre small arm.

Some prosthetics can, most are cheaper so lean to function over form. But higher quality cybernetics nearly indistinguishable from flesh exist. Most notable is Ad Mech Executor Fetials, a "face" for mechancius forces working with other imperial forces who's cybernetics are like your pic so they look like ordinary people instead of horrifying transhuman cyborgs. Which is meant to make relations easier and more efficient.

If Primaris weren't Super Space Marines and the rest of line didn't exist I'd actually be happy about new standard Marine models if they looked like this.

Fuck you. That's 3E art, which was top tier grimdark. Back when the Imperium was barely better than Chaos and existed to punish mankind for its hubris. It was a universe fueled purely by spite and nihilism and it was awesome. Back then, the guard weren't heroic brave men holding the line against super human monstrosities, but a sociopathic and incompetent army that would often cause as much damage to the people they were "protecting" as much as the invading xenos and heretics. The space marines were elitist who regarded the other sectors of the Imperium with contempt and would smash your skull in if you breathed in their direction (now, only the Marines Malevolent reflect that old attitude). Every other faction was also purely grimdark, with leaders who plotted to see the whole universe burn (much of their species included) so that their chosen could rule over the ashes. It 40k, and everything since has moved away from this spirit of absolute black bleakness.

I was never massively into Marines, but the one thing they always did really well was customisation. Basically every SM infantry kit since 3rd-4th was cross-compatible with every other one, with some really great upgrade kits and all the FW ranges too. You could scramble random basic SM parts selected from anywhere in the last 20+ years and they'd all fit together and make a totally unique dude. Primaris may have been an attempt to escape this requirement, but their much more surface-level customisation (heads and shoulders, datasheet precludes even a weapon swap) and general sameyness (every Intercessor looks good, but is identical to every other Intercessor) leads to accusations of being "soulless". Their upgrade kits are also mostly terrible.

I don't really like the "tacticool" stylings of Phobos and the intricate panelling but that's a personal autism, the customisation is the big issue. It's sadly kinda hard to have an actual debate on the issue, because every thread where this argument breaks out it inevitably devolves into "yeh those guys are all zoomies/grogs/soiboys/manlets etc. etc."

Kopinski still works with GW, and there is a lot of other good artists. The problem, which I would agree with, is that GW has clearly started coaching their artists to represent the models they are selling as opposed to just representations of the setting. A good example of this is the Smith's Chosen of Chaos images. Literally none of them looked anything like the models, but they are iconic to the setting.

Dude sigmarines had practically fucking nothing at launch, they started eitj basically 4 or 5 different units. Then over an extended period of time different "chambers" were released each if which expanded the range by introdicing several new options based around a common theme.

Kinda like how primaris started with a handcul of units anx then we got a release with a binch of new options based around phobos armor. I will eat a hat if we don't get releases for Gravis armor same as phobos at some point and releases for other themes as well.

GW hate the Eldar and don't give a fuck about them, most of the Eldar model range hasn't even been fucking updated since 3rd-4th edition. Why bother having two armies that clearly are not given a fucking shit about, when you can just merge the best of them into one army?

Artel W does really good Eldar stuff, but their best stuff got takedown'ed by GW. You can still though find the STL files for Resin printing for the Boneshees and their awesome Macha Farseer here

Fellow Orkchads, I'm looking to kitbash some Weirdboys. I ordered an AoS Wardokk and a Savage Big Boss. I'll make sure to base him right, but is the Wardokk big enough? There are surprisingly few pictures of him online. And any ideas for how I should do the Savage Big Boss? I'm almost considering leaving him as is because I think the model is cool, but I feel like I want a third Weirdboy.

It requires a picture unfortunately. What size oval bases are the Attack Bikes and Land Speeders on, if you know the bikes are 75*42 and the tanks are 170*105?

90*52 and 105*70 are the options, I think they're the 105s, but they dont look 30mm longer than the normal bikes' bases.

There was that moment in late 4th or 5th (?) where they decided to make the Red Corsairs red and black instead of just being random marines with red cross on their armour, and it looked like they were setting them up as being the next Black Legion, but it never really happened. The codex focused more on newer rebels than the ancient legions.

huron is so much more successful than abaddon it's not even funny.
it has been what, 300 years since the badab war and the Red corsairs already rival the black legion in ships and numbers, not to mention they have a blackstone fortess now too

ok so incursors and inflitrators come from the same box
how does the assembly work?
are there enough bits to make 5 of each?
if i make 10 infiltrators what extra parts do i need to make 10 incursors? just 10 more legs/torsos?

The kits share everything except heads, different scope bits for the bolt carbines and back packs, and some accessories.
There might be enough bolt carbines since you get a few different options there, but you'd need at least new bodies, backpacks, and pauldrons
