So I've got about 900 points of scions + an assassin.

In 8th I would have run them alongside a guard battalion (just guardsmen and heavy weapons teams), but with the way 9th works, it doesn't seem so attractive now.
My guard are old and have a shitty paintjob (they were some of my earliest models). If I were to sell them, what should I buy to replace them? I had a few lascannons heavy weapons teams, so I guess I'll need some more melta scions or something.

not with those joints, only stealth suits and the shadowsun's suit have that configuration

Sup /tg/, I need some help figuring out the lore for an incredibly poor sororitas convent I want to use in the 40k gang-warfare-simulators as Venators.
I'm thinking their order is mostly self-funded, with their headquarters also being the orbital vehicle they transport their APC in. They hitch rides on Imperial troop transports from hive to hive searching for lost holy relics and archaeotech in underhives, using a cheap/converted orbital vehicle as their HQ on the surface and their APC to get to the hive and shield them from radiation. They're for Necromunda for now but I plan to expand them into a 40k tabletop army once I've got enough minis. Thanks in advance /tg/!

First question: what are some common/cheap Imperial orbital vehicles that can carry a Sisters of Battle Rhino or Repressor? I just want a diorama for displaying them, even civilian (non-military/industrial) vehicles, anything that can fit 30 nuns and an APC on a "budget" (lore-wise, I can save up for it irl). Not a Thunderhawk obviously, but something that can do similar carrying-wise.

Second question: what can I field my non-power-armored sisters as in 40k 9E? Astra Militarum mixed-army list with the girls as guardsmen? Are there rules anywhere for using hive-gangers in 40k with weird weapon sets? A few of them will have lasrifles; but many will have chainswords, bolters, shotguns, flamers, etc. What fits that?

Anything in 9th can now "deepstrike" but it will cost you CP depending on this power level, Scions on the other hands, have it on their datasheet and you don't have to pay CP for them to deep strike.

>would prefer not using named characters
There is only 1 single named characters, so it isn't an issue.
Depends on what you want?
- Do you want an infantry heavy team?
Then get Shield & Sentinel Blade Guards for objective conquering, and get yourself some Terminators. For the choice of terminators you either have:
-Allarus, the big character hunters, that can split up to focus on objectives afterwards. Allarus you want a unit of 5-6 (or even more) to maximize the strats. Do not ignore the splitting up ability, making every model a single units fucks up a lot of math for the opponent, as it's difficult to kill something as though as a custodes termi, a lot of damage is going to be wasted trying to kill each model seperatly.
You will want Dread Host as your choice.

- Aquilon Terminators the general use terminators, they have good tools to kill prettyh much anything. The bolter removed fodder, the fists remove Knights. You only need 3 of them because of the +1 to Wound Roll strats, against higher T opponents. This means you can waste the reamining points in stuff like Dreadnoughts (Telemon no less).
Since Aquilons is a single unit of 3, you don't need Dread Host.

For character protection, either use Custodian Guards with shield or a Telemon. The character you will want to protect is the Vexilla Magnifica (-1 to hit). It is a must in every Custodes list.

If you want a more speedy list, aka Jetbikes. then it's simple. Get Jetbikes. Maximize strats by going 5 man units. Hurricane vs Launcher depends on what the list needs, the removal of -1 to hit is massive and makes them very appealing, specially with the increased thoughness of the newer models, as you see less swarms, and see more elite enemy models.
There are a lot of good shield hosts, depends on what you want really.

Some wrenches in those gears. Guilliman is Lord of War, meaning he's got to be the warlord or he costs like 4cp to field.

Next, that extra movement happens only around Guilliman, and the custodians will be faster than him. Unless he moves at 8" or something.

What Im getting at is that Warbands doing their own thing is fine within a legion, that happened before chaos and happens after chaos, hell in the case of Word Bearers the Dark Apostles might even foster such deviations to create their own little armies with plausible deniability in order to attack their peers within the council while they keep their post within the legion.

Space marines and necrons are elite factions, you can spend less on models to make a complete army. They're also easy to paint than others, with necrons being the most easily painted army in the game if you want them to be. They also have a lot of large box sets to get shit cheap.

Proportions are skewed. Its not difficult to slap an X scale cupola on a Y scale tank.

It started because of compromises GW made between cost of production and "accuracy" it's easier for them to make huge minis now. But the current sizes are an established "convention" and it's not feasible for GW to replace every vehicle kit at once.

It depends on how autistic your local GW is. The most autistic will only let you play with official models in their original configuration. No conversions.
Most will let you play with official GW models converted any way you like, some of these will even tolerate some added non-official parts like helmets or guns or what have you.
Almost no GW stores will let you play with models that are third party. Unless your local store is filled with bros.

What I've been saying in >>74960947 about transcendental engineering. The Imperium can still reproduce engineering like that on things as simple as tanks, technology for complex hardsuits like terminator armour was lost for millennia due to the scale, depth, and moving parts. This is all alluded to in the lore via the language of primitives across all novels, it's almost impossible to succinctly cite, pick a book at random and it's in there.

The tank is the right scale, it's just compact by design; and the interior is much larger and more complex than most modern humans can imagine.

Consider getting Cadians, filing down the raised areas on the helmets and giving them greenstuff gas masks and greatcoats. It will be a fiddly pain in the cunt, but will get you going in the right direction.

I don't encounter wysiwyg fags often, but when I do I don't play with them. Just don't tolerate their turboautism and eventually they'll either get over themselves or find somebody else to annoy. They only do it to try to stop you from using good wargear that doesn't come in any kits.

Eh, I came from AoS to 40k. AoS is a lot of fun, but I didn't like how my LGS did AoS events. I built for durability and holding objectives as that was how the GH missions were set up, but they just basically said "screw that" and made it all about how many models you killed.

Worse than sawdust. Ideally you should be wearing a close fitting mask. If you can't get one at the very least wear your cloth Rona mask. You can also reduce dust by getting the piece and/or your sandpaper wet first.
