I'm writing shitty homebrew for an Astartes chapter and i'm trying to figure out their logistics. What strikes you guys as lazier writing? Giving them a Mechanicus presence within their home system bonded to the chapter, or hand-waving it away and having their supplies come from a distant forge that's never elaborated upon? Both suck, but i'm not sure how else to write myself out of this hole. Giving the Mechanicus a presence in the system feels like having my cake and eating it, and having everything come from outside the system feels like i'm not giving the issue enough thought.

I mean, I'm probably just buying a SC so I'm leaning towards a Wraith-focused list. I was thinking Wrath of the Dead (since I'll have a bunch of Wraiths, and I might try and hunt down the Eldar half of Wake the Dead if anyone still has it) and then something like Headstrong, Expert Crafters, or Warding Runes to make my Wraiths better. Leaning towards ghostaxe Wraithblades, since it seems like having sturdy models for board control is gonna be nice in 9th, especially since you need better bodyguards than you used to for characters.

I mean, one or the other must be true; either there's Mechanicus in their home system, or they get it shipped in from elsewhere.

Before, you couldn't spam Smite, and those two factions had special rules to let them sidestep the limitations on Smite that existed in 8e. But now the rule is different, and their exception rule doesn't cover the RAW of 9th edition. So they're subject to the 9th Ed penalties for spamming smite, because their rules only cover the 8th ed version, not the 9th ed version.

That's where I started out, but I dismissed it pretty quickly. The chapter has sovereignty over an underdeveloped feudal world in a further underdeveloped sector so making them self-sufficient in a fortress monastery with production capability struck me as the simplest answer but that didn't make them vulnerable enough. They're supposed to be a chapter raised to defend what the vagaries of the warp have defined as a border, Limitanei out on the fringe of Imperial space, bound by duty to protect the sanctity of the Imperium but ultimately loyal to home and tribe over the government they never see. They have to be cold, hungry, worn out and stretched thin, ready to quietly fade away from Imperial authority with the rest of the system once there's no border left for them to defend, to turn in to petty tyrants that tithe surrounding worlds in exchange for protection as they replicate the Imperium in microcosm in an attempt to survive. You have no choice but to keep making guns and ammo and suits of armor for us because we're the only authority left and if you want us to keep your shipping safe it's damn well going to cost you. I just don't know where the shipping is supposed to come from.

>wanted to shelve my marines for now and start a CSM army for a while now

Alright, 9th is happening, point changes are out, so help me decide: Iron Warriors or Black Legion? I like fluffy armies and prefer chaos undivided over dedication to one god.

Black Legion is undivided, versatile, all units are fluffy for them but I like their focus on terminators and that I can three HQs I like in a fluffy council of traitors, plus their legion tactic works with bolters and plasma which I like letting me focus on regular CSM and bikes along terminators. Also black and gold is pimpin. Not really interested in fielding the named characters since I've had enough of that in my SM army.

Iron Warriors are undivided and I like most of their fluffy units, havocs and tanks in particular. I have less love for their fluffy HQ disco lord which is too messy of a design for me, and I'm not crazy about their paint scheme. I like the theme of hordes of slave cultists screening for their masters and their mighty machines.

Old marines and primaris are compatible besides the torsos, legs, and arguably backpacks. I'm doing the same thing.

The current ones I'm trying I just put on the basic shape, waited for it to cure then attempted to add greenstuff on top but I'm having a hard time getting it to stay in place while shaping the folds. I gave up in frustration and will attempt it again tomorrow.

The base layer is fairly thick, not quite as thick as a plastic one would be but that's because I'm adding additional layers on top. They snapped off the models fairly clean so tomorrow I'm going to try to add onto them when they're not attached to the mini and then superglue it back on when I'm happy with how it looks.

Long time Chaos player here:

First of all, you should go mostly on fluff and how much you like painting the type of armor. I started off Black Legion, felt like painting black edge trim ruined any motivation to paint and then went over to Word Bearers - I really like wetblending the red armor panels now.

Rule wise, you will most likely do fine with both...CSM are probably in a weaker spot until the codex hit, but Termies got cheaper (and both can field termies fine), Daemonengines got cheaper, etc. Both have got some good new rules with Faith&Fury, so it mostly should could down to how shooting heavy you want to play, and how much you like painting black vs metal armor :p

Not the anon you're talking to but I've sculpted a couple of tabards for some primaris that turned out okay. Try having the top come down below the primaris gorget like pic related. Also instead of adding greenstuff over the robes to make folds see if you can get a hold of rubber shaping brushes, they made the job a lot easier when I tried. Another thing that would probably help is to have the fabric ripples all collecting at a single unifying point near the shoulders.

I think the biggest design element that should be kept in mind with scions is them not acting like a regular standing army, they're the specialist that perform high importance attacks and drop into hell to severe an attacker's "artery" to save a collapsing defending line, a squad of them is tactically worth a platoon of standard guardsmen.
The idea of demolition men is great, but sniping and subtle sabotage is wastes valuable time they could be used performing more immediate action, I also prefer the idea of a fast moving mini taurox(tauros) being their source of fire support rather than cumbersome heavy weapons, non-melta AT would be great though.
Honestly the best place to start when adding to their range would be a flyer, something akin to an A10 warthog's worth of ground fire support would be be good, and yes i know the avenger exists, pretty much the driving idea behind it being a flyer that comes and destroys the main threat then goes back to being on stand-by, akin to the scions themselves.

I have many questions as a potential new player.

I was thinking about making a custodes army, but the new point values means they are op so now the models are hard to find. Should I about them since they will be expensive and get nerfed?

If models are sold out on the GW online store does that mean they aren't making anymore?

How much do people really care about third party shit? I was thinking about using raging heros models for sisters (if I go that route,) because I like the look of them better, but I don't want to get shit for it. On the same note, how strict are people generally about buying the books when you can just get rules, stratagems, etc., online? I can afford this shit (it's expensive, but way cheaper than my current hobby, firearms,) but I don't like paying $40 for what is essentially a rule patch.

Also, my flgs can't run their tables/events because of bullshit chink flu larp. I no longer have "nerdy" friends so with the store closed how hard is it to find people to play with? What am I in for here?

There is not a precise way in which it works. It's not a curse with hard-coded rules. It's just Slaanesh that does whatever he/she find funny to resurrect him. Even if you find a loophole (like the mine, or the Necron One) Slaanesh Will just laught at the loophole and still resurrect him.

>>73802512
List C, without a doubt. Don't forget the trait to break pile in and consolidate with the captain. With that list though, you will have a lot of troubles protecting your vexilla, so be careful. Telemon is the best Vexilla bodyguard in the Custodes. It's a good future purchase (get him with the ranged/cc build). Guards with shield are the best option for objective holding, but suck at character protection, since the moment one dies, you lose that protection. Maybe if you get a unit of 5, but then you are already in Telemon territory, points wise, which is a much better option (remember you have the halve damage strat and fnp++, making him a lot tougher).

Not like there's a manual for it in any case. Lucius was never filled in on how it works, he's had to figure that as best he can on his own. Most people will likely have a poorer understanding of it than he does, if they even know about it at all. As far as most observers know his death might just be misreported a lot, or there are several people using the same alias, or he's just a daemon in disguise. It's not like any of this is easy for an outsider to verify.

Now they've stopped shooting, and are running straight at you. What do you do?
To me, the real sad thing with charging units is the fact that the charge fails and units don't move AT ALL if they don't clear the whole distance in one charge. That's the real bullshit.

Can't recommend nids anymore, a full unit of hive guard is almost a quarter of your army and carnifexes got a big price nerf despite still being shit enough to die to melee spam, so the only staying power they have is in a couple units being Tyrannofexes and Zoanthropes (unless you want to have no fun and spam gaunts to hold caps until turn 5. Wait until an update before you try them.

Why are sisters of battle so fucking expensive?
It's not fair that you get 10 intercessors for 45€ yet only 5 seraphim for basically the same price.
And don't get me started on vehicles, with sororitas rhinos being substantially more expensive than normal rhinos for no fucking reason and immolators and exorcists being land-raider tier.

But I *was* shooting at them in my shooting phase. As much as I could. And now the shooting on their side has stopped and they're trying to rush me? You bet your ass I'm taking clumsy potshots (hitting on 6s).
Sounds narratively coherent to me, and balanced game-wise. If psykers can try to Deny the Witch as an out-of-turn reaction, why can't shooters also get an out-of-turn reaction?

If you can shoot them when they're running at you why are you not shooting at them even if they're not running at you? The enemy is standing right next to you, so why aren't you shooting? The squad next to you is shooting at the people running at them, but you're not shooting at the enemy standing right next to you because they decided not run at you and you're having a truce despite him standing an inch from you barrel? No, it doesn't make sense.

As previously stated, my unit was shooting as much as they could. However, having someone run straight at them is an extra opportunity to shoot *during the same time period.* Keeping it as a stratagem in 9e instead of a free thing doesn't gimp it, IMO. But getting rid of it would have been clumsy.

We know Malcador offered the 2 lost legions legionnaires a "Second Chance" which most likely means they were reintegrated into other legions after their Primarchs were killed. Because of this, having your successor chapters being successors of one of the lost primarchs is pretty possible isn't it?

because they put double the number of backpacks on the sprue and made them 2 piece. They price by the sprue, not the model count.

They definitely had space to add Eviserators, a second flag, and more stuff to the Seraphim box, but GW decided to half ass it.

Flesh Eaters are not cannibals no, that's meant to be figurative. Astartes sometimes eat enemy neural tissue for tactical advantage or if it's an extreme survival situation, but afaik only Mortifactors do it for fun.
