>Is there any knowledge of what the next book will be about?

They're skipping ahead to the Scouring to revitalise the line. New Raldoron, Abbadon and Guilliman sculpts in the first wave, new Dorn, Sigismund and Polux sculpts as part of a symbolic final parting set-piece after the Iron Cage. New Perturabo same wave. Third wave full on guitar Noise Marines, drumkit tank, groupie mosh pit superheavy. Then they're doing IA14, but it's Orks + Chaos v Craftworld Eldar + Deathwatch/4v4 instead of the Red Scorpions/Darkmech thing they had planned.

Then it's alternating IA books and Scouring books. War of the Beast tentatively pencilled in to merge the two lines by Q4 2024, probably realistically more like Q2 2026.

>> No.77149781

You have a few options with Dark Mech, the best option likely being using Mechanicum with ruinstorm daemon allies converting so the various daemons represent daemon engines, automata, and various techn-horrors for the smaller things.

Assault Marines are all Axes all the time. Unwieldy is a pretty irrelevant downside if you have the same init as your enemy and you can't be singled out. However, +1S and AP2 are extremely relevant buffs.

Raptors it is all good. Power kit is so cheap that you probably want to upgrade everything, so a couple of Swords or Glaives are sensible just to absorb I4 attacks. Same concept applies though that Axes remain your highest damage output.

What are you talking about, FW has always been a GW studio. They were never "separate." That doesn't mean they don't have their own studios and staff, working on their own projects. Why do you think there's a clear visual difference between GW and FW designed products.

Painting yet another character. Praetor or forge lord, depending on the situation.

>> No.77161769

With FW and GW for a long time the difference was resin and plastic, particularly after GW stopped producing new metal sculpts. Resin and metal molding, and therefore resin and metal production techniques start to finish, are very similar processes in terms of what you can and can't do, but plastic uses solid molds (which is why it's preferable for mass production - the molds get orders of magnitude more uses before they fail) and somewhat simpler ones because the resulting sprues have to come out without deforming the mold.

With the shift to CAD at FW the back end design is simplified and both processes, resin and plastic, are about as complicated as one another. It still helps to have experience of making a model in greenstuff - GW still recruits that way - because that teaches you a lot about the physicality of the resulting product than just CAD would (though CAD can also warn you about limits, and is particularly good at telling you how much material overall, by weight, you're using - which is good on cost).

Specialising in plastic or resin was much more possible for about a decade than it is now.

>Writing codexes didn't exclude you from writing novels for BL.

That's something else. Writing is a full-time job you get paid for about 20% of if you're good at it, and having name recognition is often more important than the objective quality or originality of your work compared to a newcomer.

>> No.77161883

Design and production are two different things. Plastic MkIIIs are still FW design, even if they're produced in the GW injection moulds and sold in the GW store.

Even if GW starts designing plasma weapons with long, segmented barrels all on their own, FW was still the one who started the trend. Plague Marines can be all GW designed and produced, but the design of the flared armour segments and the Phobos bolters were originally made by FW.

Correct. Replace them with skids or deployable gear (see the Arvus, etc.). Lines look OK but very smooth.

Yes, that's what I'm saying. There's no longer any distinction between the back end because they're apparently all working in CAD now. That means you can hop teams much more easily, and as a consequence of CAD that your designs can be pushed out into plastic production if they work out in resin. It avoids an additional step of redesign that was formerly necessary when FW sculped everything by hand for resin molding, while GW did it for plastics.

Land Raider Spam kinda fits in an offmeta niche, taking advantage of the fact that most bring enough heavy at to kill a Spartan and then have a mix of medium AT that can be used for Rhino's, but Land Raiders cna be taken in enough numbers so as to overwhelm the enemy with 16-20 av14 Hull Points, potentially infiltrating or scouting due to being dedicated transports.

Yeah, I got it for being a thematic choice, honestly. Also I wanted to try out a recaster I'd never done before and wanted something I wouldn't mind not-getting if he was just a scammer.

Probably a good plan. Are 40k-style Land Speeders used in 30k, or is it all the flying couches and deodorant sticks?
Why Rapiers? They're usually used for cheap anti-tank in the Elite slot and I feel like I don't need to save points there. I like the idea of a Lord of War, though.

>> No.77165564

All 40k versions of 30k vehicles are kosher, some were rarer during this period though like mars patter rhino hulls. Stuff like 40k bikes are actually oldrt, and probwbly more common though.

>> No.77165623

>Assault transport role is taken up by the Spartan
A land raider is 75 points cheaper, 125 if you don't need it to be an assault transport. Unless you need to transport 10+ terminators specifically land raiders are better. Having multiple land raiders also makes it very difficult for opponents to combat your list unless they bring retarded amounts of anti-tank. Not an auto-take under any circumstances but far from useless.

However, one thing that would make them a lot better and let them be seen a lot more is giving them 12 more transport slots so you can shove a character in as well. Your palatine blades or suzerains would be able to escort a character at full strength, your vets could be joined by an apothecary or MoS if you don't get BS 5 at close ranges.

>> No.77165625

>That said, flying couches are fucking rad.

Yup, always use my ammo dump/void shield bunker. 95 points for AV 14 with 4 hull points, 5 fire points, and a spare AV 12 hull point that can regenerate. It means they can't use augury scanners, since they don't exist on the board while they're in the Bunker, but that's not much of a loss.

Remember the bunker firepoints hold 4 dudes each, so 8 guys can fire out the front, if you wanted a bigger squad.

Not saying you're entirely wrong, but 3 las vindis are what, 390pts naked, 405 assuming dozers (if you're talking about moving and shooting).
For 9 tl shots, but only 3 on the move, and only 6 inches. HHS with 9 lascannons is of comparable cost, but you have an arty armour sarge that can eat ap3 spam semi reliably, they are going to be getting a cover save unless you're suicidal as fuck, and they can't get shaken/exploded like vehicles can.
Outside of IF and IW havocs las vindi is hands down better, but with those two forces they have legitimate trade offs that make it not black and white.

>> No.77167076

Two las vindicators are a lot cheaper and while they are pretty shit they can at least move and shoot and are more resilient. Personally neither of those options cause me much interest, I would rather take a quad mortar battery or a sicaran venator or lightning depending on what exactly I wanted to kill.

Right, I’ve been doing some thinking and I’m not convinced the warmaster will be worth running.
Let’s assume that it’s movement stays the same as a warlord, it has 8 voids, and let’s just call it an appropriate up gunning on reactor, armor, pipe, etc, like there was from reaver to warlord, and it keeps the same bs/ws/command as the WL. let’s also assume it’s got a couple solid builds with weapon variety. it will still have 3 major problems
the first is temporary but worth considering - no or few maniples. This means that it can only really be run as a support titan, and the maniples it can support at the typical size game might be few and far between depending on its cost
second is that it’s uge. while this does help it exploit los to shoot guys that would be in cover for other titans, it means it will be easy to get under (at least some of) its guns. if it’s ardex defenses are strong enough, it might not be a big problem, and certainly won’t be as bad as it is for the warbringer. but 12” is a big bubble to lose your carapace weapon in.
the real damning one for me is that activations are important enough in AT that the higher points go for a model, the more you give up exponentially. Based on the psi-titan being a baffling 300 points more than the warlord i’m not confident it’ll be reasonably priced. if it’s the cost of two reavers and change, will it make sense?
however it could fit nicely into the large games of AT that are currently a bit wonky and which would benefit from a big boy. but the increase in stratagems you get at those games will probably keep them a bit too mad for my tastes.

>> No.77167083

Land Speeders are the closest to second best, and they hate 2 HP AV10 who can't fire shit if they jink

Who gives a fuck? Two squads all but guarantee KO a Spartan Deathbus turn 1 and leave a melee squad with usually shit shooting in difficult terrain. Bakc it up with dual grav podnaught(s) to make certain
100% worthwhile
If the opponent has no spartan deathbus, then you go after their next most valuable vehciles
Only thing they lose massively against is drop pod or max flyers, but because max flyers can't do shit to tanks, you're rarely gonna see it

About the only way it makes its points back is if it's firing at full capacity every turn. You're really gonna sacrifice shots, and even throw points towards the idea?

Hey anon, but to your original post, if you feel like using big tac blobs, its probably worth getting a couple of apothecaries to pad out their toughness, or atleast force your enemy to use bigger guns on your 10pt models.

Its probably with fitting out your spare dudes with combi weapons, so you can run them as vets or even seekers if you wanted.

Other than that I would say more vehicles. Various sicarans are always cool, and if your recasting you can buy turrets separately to be able to mix it up.

>> No.77167299

>Perhaps I should have clarified in a legion list, but hey
Even then I wouldn't agree, with good positioning and investing like 375 points and two elite slots you can kill a spartan turn 1, but even then the land speeders have the same anti-vehicle capability while being cheaper, taking only a single less valuable (and sometimes mandatory with rites requiring fast attack slots be filled) slot and have various options to make them more useful in other more flexible ways.

>> No.77167348

Other anon brought up the point, so I responded. But yes, it is not wise unless absolutely needed.
They're not more resilient, or at least its not as clesr cut. Something that can hurt meq wont bother the vindi sure, but with cover and more bodies, meq are more resilient against many threats as well, let alone hiding in IFanon's bunker.

Your 450pts of rapiers will statistically not kill a spartan in 1 turn.
Even assuming they're dumb enough to put it in LOS and range of 6 grav cannons, and with no cover, you're highly likely to fail to get 5 hullpoints on it, between 1s on haywire and scatter. They're not bad, but its never so clear cut.

Mechanicum can reliably ko a spartan in t1 through various means though.

>> No.77167562

Anons, just have a kharybdis full of either machinekiller meltabomb vets or legion terminators with chainfists for a turn two guaranteed kill on anything short of a warhound for cheaper than any grav spam. You're not afraid of a little close combat are you?

>> No.77167731

His point was turn 1 kill, which I will admit few things can do with any reliability. However even if turn 1 (as opposed to one turn in general such as a lightning coming on from reserves) lethality is your only goal to the exclusion of all others there are better choices.

However if anon uses them, finds them effective, and enjoys them good for him, I won't sit here all day fighting him on why he should stop using units he enjoys.

This thing is almost insanely good. It can kill a warlord in nearly a single round of shooting, definitely can if voids are down. 2x3 shots s13 d10 +1 to hit that you can aim? Christ on the fucking cross. It just fucking executes titans.
But, Almost. It’s just too many points i think. even at like 2k points you can only field it and something like a corsair demi-maniple, maybe with 1 knight banner. At that level your opponent could have somewhere around 7 titans, less if he wants to stack up on heavy hitters.

It's a mid ranged titan though, and it's slow. It's got bad anti-shield weaponry what with its missiles only being three shots each. This might be a case where twin turbos are better as you have the reactor and servitors to shoot whatever shieldbane you want. The lack of dual missiles also means first fire isn't as effective

On one hand the cheapest loadout is 1060, on the other if your opponent brings it you can flood the table with extra units but this really is the end of any knight unit. Potentially four plasma weapons on a huge model with full arc.
But it's only mid ranged with 30" on the plasma destructors so you can potentially just kite it with volcano cannons and missiles. No special upgrade to the defense guns despite having big cannons and knee cannons.

>> No.77182393

>too slow and mid range

16” to me is a perfectly serviceable engagement range, i’m really not worried about that. it turns a bit better than a warlord too with a lot of arc weapons
> It's got bad anti-shield weaponry what with its missiles only being three shots each.
yeah that’s weird, but I think VMBs are perfectly serviceable. you’re already trying to close and they aren’t carapace. even outside 8” they should be great.
>This might be a case where twin turbos are better as you have the reactor and servitors to shoot whatever shieldbane you want.
Doubt. between pushing movement, pushing shields and your insane main guns needing a push and maximal to go balls out, you’re already power hungry as hell, and you have to push TWICE. no thank you. I’ve run the math enough on shieldbane to know that, factually, even without factoring in the cost of pushing it’s worse at stripping than VMBs by a huge margin in every scenario though within the close range of these new mini-apocs the destructors should be a bit better. Honestly, blastguns are better shield stripping weapons on this guy
>The lack of dual missiles also means first fire isn't as effective
definitely, but again you want to close close so that’s not a worry to me. This is a titan to order split fire to literally every turn
all that said it’s just too expensive. if you take it you’re going to have 2 less activations than your opponent, no way around it, and a lot of eggs in one very big basket. It could be 200 points less and it would still be a niche titan. Also whoever put together the cost for the revelator is retarded, point blank. You’ll hardly ever fire it for fucks sake.

Trying to work out how the Warmaster might look with the shoulder guns.

>> No.77183887

Praevian is too heavily invested. Tanky af, especially for legion who lack high Str, low ap with multiple shots usually, but their threat range is pot shot multimeltas and hoping for a T3 charge, and that's assuming nobody moves out of range
Kheres Mortis - expensive, short range, whose interceptor is both short range and limited to non-movement, and also arc limited - these are grav dread/melta pod bait
Breachers: precisely because of the prevalence of T4.5 blobsquads, I don't know many who recommend s8 ap3, and there aren't many sources of it in legion lists - vindicators, Medusa and Typhon are all pretty commonplace catchalls. The 6++ is a slight uptick in tankiness, but its not as though anti Infantry to fire at has anything better to fire, and the graviton gun is heavy 18" with only a small blast. The scatters hurt, and not being able to reliably move to claim objectives even more so

Im sorry, anon. I don't like it: move forward slowly, and hope that your 2 Dreads last long enough against 2500pts lists worth of AT, hope the enemy leaves valuable units within 12-14" of the castellax, and hope that ~40 bolter marines can last 5 turns against 2500pts list worth of antiinfantry

Honestly, because of the scout, vorax IMHO are preferential. Not as tanky, but faster, and therefore actually able to threat and force fire priority. Perhaps consider muktiple squads
Dreadnoughts: I'm not a fan of mortis Kheres for aa: either deredeo who can make use of their long range weapons and have aioli missiles, your own lightnings or just don't bother and consider it a wipe
The Warlord is very heavily melee kitted given his only use will be killing 3-4 guys who assault the breaches, he can't join the praevian iirc - an opponent will be better off poling and just shooti g the unit as a super expensive hq rots doing little
I'd rethink the breacher investment totally, not a particularly good unit

Warmaster suddenly makes the warbringer look much more attractive, as it’s one of the better titans for killing the bastard. a titan with warlord defenses and reaver movement with a BFG on its back and reaver arms will have a use. A ruptura with one quake and one aggressive bellicosa warbringer with some mid range/melee reavers feels like a pretty solid counter to the warmaster.

Its scale 16 would be at minimum 1,600 points before kit and insanely massive. The warmaster is at minimum 6” tall and probably closer to 8”, so you’re looking at a monstrosity about 10” tall at this point.
I can’t even begin to imagine it’s weapons and stats. 5 crit pips, 2+ voids, 18+ required to crit and 14 to damage, and the guns would somehow half to dwarf the new plasma destructors.

When non-limited edition versions of it have been out for two weeks, allowing people who would be interested in breaking their book to scan it a chance to get the work done.

>> No.77196955

That's not how it works. Limited editions of books 2, 3 and 4 were scanned soon after release.

sorry my guy. but i agree with most your complaints. our group has tinkered with that project along with our own additions or homebrew but we havent really made anything for fists. seeing as our fist player hasent been able to play much for about 2 years.

Alright, just realized I've been bitching about shit instead of getting things done and making something better, and like, what am I, an Iron Warrior?

So, let's talk Heavy Weapon Lascannons and Breacher Squads, in specific. I feel like Heavy Weapon Lascannon squads could manage to be viable with only a points drop - Missile launchers are 5 ppm and aren't that much of a downgrade. 10 ppm? 15? I'm feeling like 10 is probably better, since they're still tactical marine statlines at the end of the day, but I'm also hella prejudiced.

Breachers are a lot harder. They're fundamentally tactical marines with a bit of an upgrade, but is that upgrade really worth it over keeping it simple, low-points, and moving on? The first idea is simply to make them sidegrades to tactical squads, both in points and upgrades - Trading FotL for a 6++ and reroll against blasts honestly seems like it'd be a fair trade. But, I like the idea of giving them something more to justify their points increase over Tacticals. Shield Wall almost seems like something you could give universally, and then give Warders an innate +1T when in B2B with each other. You'd need to remake the Stone Gauntlet, but Fists' RoW needed a rework anyway with how shit Hammerfall Strikeforce is.

Stone Gauntlet, in turn, could hypercharge the Boarding Shields, while still giving the +1T to Storm Shields. +1 Invuln from them, making the squad have an innate 5++ in base contact? They're, again, still basic tactical marines in statline, and you'd have to stand in "Template me!" position in order to make it happen.

Guy who was talking about lascannon squads being shit earlier and I agree. As for cost when houseruling make units underwhelming and incrementally improving them is a good rule of thumb since the issue with any rules is getting others to accept them and people are more apt to face overcosted units than undercosted units. So I would start at 15 ppm and drop to 10 after a few games if you think it is needed.

I like the idea of universally giving them shield wall, still would price them a bit more than tacticals since FOTL is situationally useful 6++ and hardened armour is almost universally beneficial with no drawbacks.

>Stone gauntlet
Not a fists guy so I don't know their rules or rites off the top of my head but I would be wary about stacking buffs in general.
