It's a fun idea, but depending on the fellowship it can be almost impossible for the evil player to win in a lot of the scenarios since you can make waaay stronger fellowships on average. Especially if you just put the cheapest hero possible in the Boromir slot since he dies anyway.

That box is worse than nothing, its almost an insult. Like being thrown a bone once every so often. Its the pretense of still caring. The only reason they're bothering is because it can maximise their profits for more Primaris.

I'd give anything to be able to run an Inquisition KT made up of Acolytes and Mercs with an Interrogator at its head, even if it was homebrewed.
But its never going to fucking happen because GW only looks our way whenever new Primaris stuff comes out.

Just got the Necromunda Underhive box for an absolute steal because it's in Japanese

Was worth it for the models and terrain alone, plus the dice, templates, etc.

I've never played the game before and I believe the tactics cards and whatnot are basically optional.

I've got a Cawdor gang ready to be built, and I've of course got the Goliath gang with the box. Now that I've got a second gang to do I'll either convert them as beefy Chaos cultists, or as Goliaths with some conversions for going down the outlaw and Chaos worshipping route.

What rulebook(s) do I now need to buy in English?
I assume the Necromunda Underhive rulebook for the main rules and the Goliath rules, plus the House of Chains book for their extras?
What rulebook are Cawdor and Chaos cultist gangs in?

I believe it's the house of judgement for the turning to chaos rules, but if that's just a small bit I'll print it from the mega

I'm so excited for House of Faith. What do you think Cawdor will get? I'm hoping for Flagellant-like chaff guys and a way to bring more bodies to any battle by default instead of just as a random tactic.

I was thinking their prospects could be super weak but they're special thing could be you could bring a random number of them tacked onto the base number of gangers you can bring for a given scenario. Does that sound fair? I'm still new to Necromunda and don't know if that would be overpowered or underpowered.

I don't have the 4th Ed book any more to take photos, so I'm going off memory.
The rules for Kill-Team back then was that you built a single unit where you could include multiple unit types. That unit would face off against roaming 3-man squads of goons backed up by a boss goon; get too close and you'll get detected, with a risk of other nearby squads being contacted and running in too.
That's all it is man. Figure it out with your mate and play a game. You don't need the book to tell you what to do.
A mate and I played coop Kill-Team where Tyranids would spawn from 6 spawning pools according to dice rolls. We had to advance into the swarm and destroy the spawning pools. We just fucking made the tables up and played the games. It was sweet.
Seriously, you're pushing around pretend spessmen using a ruleset that GW has nothing but contempt for. Nothing about that is gospel truth. Make your "tacticool operators vs dumb 80s sentries" rules and play it out.

I think it'd be hard to make cawdor even more pyromaniac.

Eh, I liked the female one as she had a better pose, better armor. But they always have to do something weird with the hair. Fucking why a sword through the hair?

Well yeah, makes sense to mix in some redemptionist style champions and juves. Maybe a leader with some fire-based tactics.
Haven't played yet, so hard to comment, but what I've heard here is that flamers aren't that good.
I suspect the name is so it's not quite as simple as Cawdor = Redemptionists.
My understanding of the lore is that Cawdor is the poor and faithful, and Redemptionists are probably a bit less poor and more 'burn the heretic'

GW only has rights to lotr, the hobbit, and the appendices, plus the movies, not to silmarillion or any other extended works. Hence no gondolin faction or any of that stuff, they just don’t have the rights to do it.

They would take numenor from exclusively ally-tier to amazing just by adding a cavalry unit and giving them better bows. We see cav in the isildur death flashback so they don’t even need to do any creative design, and a relatively cheap S4/F4 + lance option sounds amazing.

And as for bows
>it was the bows of the numenoreans that were most greatly feared. ‘The men of the sea’ it was said ‘Send before them a great cloud, as a rain turned to serpents, or a black hail tipped with steel’; and in those days the great cohorts of the king’s archers used bows made of hollow steel, with black-feathered arrows a full ell long from point to notch
I’m in what seems to be the small camp of liking the lightly armored troop aspect, but they need a convincing punch to follow that up. Oh, and give us anarion already

Perhaps we SHOULD homebrew something, bros.
Not like the stuff we need to do it isn't already there.
Acolytes could have a similar statline to Guardsmen, Tempestus Scions are basically Stormtroopers, the leader could be either a minor Inquisitor or an Interrogator, and we could drop in requisition rules so the faction can take DW, SoB or GK units as specialists based on what Ordo Keyword your team takes.

Obviously this is just spitballing at this point but its something to maybe work on. Throw in the Blackstone Fortress specialists and you've got a varied little band.

planetfall had a whole bunch of good robots and power armors, but sadly oop now and getting tough to find.
Bradley's line is a lot of not!marines, but they've got some funky power armors and mechs in there that might suit you. not strictly related, but easily some of my favorite 6mm dreads.

Uh, its faster and looks alright sure. Maybe even more realistic depending on what sort of material its representing.
But seeing a well painted heavy metal style mini on the board is striking. They look so much better than what pictures can convey. Its definitely not worth spending the tons of extra time per model if you just want reasonably good models, but dont start saying that a simple drybrush looks better, that just aint true.

Lol the retarded over highlighting that characterizes modern heavy metal looks fucking shit. yeah half assed dry brushing isn’t great but doing it in the right amount in the right places is great, and it’s better than putting white highlights on leather fucking gloves. the satchel on his back by contrast is much better looking leather.

>> No.77165276

Yeah looks pretty standard for Skaven, you'll be fine. I'd consider making a few changes to your deployment groups though. I'd putting the melee rat ogor in the shield because it's the most likely group to begin the game in play so he has more actions to advance up the board, put the ranged one in the dagger, and maybe swap the leader into the hammer so you have at least one decently fighty/survivable model per deployment group - I know it's tempting to just keep the hammer full of minimal chaff because it's wildly unpredictable when it comes into play, but you'll get more consistent results if you don't skew so heavily towards just 2/3 of your groups.

Would 2 vampires, a blood knight, and a vargheist be a good team? It's a bit low in models and I read somewhere the undead generally struggle with being fragile. I could upgrade the blood knight or vargheist to a kastellan or vargoyle, or add a grave guard.

>> No.77165754

Like I said already, that retarded over highlighting looks stunning in person when the models are on the table. It does looks too stark in close up pictures though. GW features it mainly since it makes the details of the models pop, even though on some parts it looks silly in close up pictures.

>> No.77165873

as far as i understand they have the license for the lord of the rings films, the hobbit films, lord of the rings books and appendices, ive read somewhere that the license for 25mm scale hobbit books actually went to some other company and thats why they waited for the hobbit films license.

Im hoping they get the licence to make minis for the show, even if the show is bad i think it will be nice to get some new second age models and i think the hype will be good for MESBG

I also know that there are two ways they got characters from other periods into the game
1. only metion of a character, like Eorl he was mentioned by name yet they created a miniature for him, i guess they could do one for some valar mentioned in the books
2. they got permission to use a character from some other work, like Khamul form unfinished tales

My personal best case scenario is GW manages to renegotiate their license so they are able to use way more works, but for the first age permission the estate will also have to change their current stance about not giving right for silmarillion to anyone, hopefully the current growth of GW and if the tv show ends up being good changes their minds

I've got FEC and can vouch for them being very good. They have a somewhat limited range of fighters, but among those fighters they have everything they need to succeed; you've got cheap, quick chaff units in ghouls and strong, tanky, fast bruisers to take hits and dish out damage in horrors and flayers.
My list is:

i think it might be too few models, i think if you have less then 5 your action economy struggles way too much.
also ive never used cavalry in warcry but i think they cant climb any terrain
personaly i think id switch the blood knight for as many skellies as you can put in his stead
but try it out, maybe youl like it and maybe if you like the blood knight you could switch the vampire ally for the blood knight

I hear you mate. I'm currently putting together a 2nd edition era Space Marine army (Angels of Redemption and Lamenters), and 32mm bases look so much better.

I'm of the opinion that necromunda should use silhouettes like infinity to determine if a model can be seen etc.

I think GW generally follows the idea that baseline human or human-like stuff is on 25/28mm bases, and power armored/genetically augmented/mean robot stuff gets 32s.

Personally I've always considered toes hanging over the edges of a base part of a model's charm, but I can totally understand not liking it.

yeah i got into warhammer during 7ed and i got the chaos side, never painted them untill recently because they seemed so complex and the rule booklet didnt help me understand how to play against my friends space marines.

after about 4 years now i guess, i found my models and finished my rats, khore guys, and these chaos space marines which turned out to be far easier to paint then i expected

Reasonably well. They've got decent access to good multi-damage weaponry, their marines are fairly hardy, and they have very cheap chaff.

I was scoping these ones as a vorax-alike. little bit bigger than doods, and kind of rocking the weird legs and stuff.

>> No.77174161


They're the closest thing to Elves without being Elves and without passing, which makes them huge in the new rules.
Their massive Movement Allowance and those Dodge Gutter Runners means they're wherever you want them to be on the pitch, and if you learn the skill the team is capable of one turn touchdowns.
Access to random Mutations for 6SPP is strong, especially considering the number of touchdowns you'll be scoring, and even if rats die your linemen only cost 50K, which is even cheaper considering the number of said touchdowns.
The Rat Ogre... exists.
They're a great team, would recommend giving them a go.

>> No.77174186


Skaven are fast and have access to the most notorious non-elf runner in the game. Four of them in fact. If things fuck up your entire team has the speed to reposition. If somebody get's through your LOS then almost literally anybody behind them is going to be able to work as a safety.
The downsides are, as you have spotted, only the Stormvermin get anything like decent armour, so you'll get heavy casualties and whilst Linerats are somewhat disposable, your Gutter Runners are not.
Score fast, score often to relieve pressure on your frontline, don't forget you're also one of the teams who got a good Thrower, use him.

An ideal starting lineup would be

2 Blitzers
4 Gutter Runners
1 Thrower
4 Lineman
3 Rerolls
1 Apothecary
Total 1,000k

Remember, utilise their speed to provide tackle zones and put as many blocks in your favour you can. Get your lumps in where you can, don't be afraid to foul with your linerats if you have the opportunity.

Nah, its a dumpster fire compared to the stellar regular game.
People usually look into it as a small scale way to get into MESBG but that mindset is flawed.
A regular 300p game is already as small in numbers of models as a game between developed battle companies.
It requires a bunch of different models whereas you can get started in real MESBG with a hero and a box of warriors.
The balance in BC is about on par with Nucromunda if not worse which doesnt help. The campaign mechanics are just atrocious.

Put three Linerats on your line and nobody else. Do not get emotionally attached to these players. They will not be around for long. Then consider a second line behind them a bit further back. It's rare for even Dwarves to down the ENTIRE frontline, and unless they want to jump over them, they've got to step around them which can disrupt movement as well. There's nothing wrong with stalling if you know you have the time, but don't get too cocky. Skaven are a team that loses efficacy as they lose players. The quicker you can get yourself to 2-0 the better. One thing they're very good at is capitalising on your opponents mistakes. He nuffles a ball pick-up, in go your Gutter Runners, throwing multiple tackle zones on it, and now the rest of his team is being man(rat?)-marked and he has to make dodges just to clear them away. The only team better at capitalising on another players misfortunes are Slaan, as they just leap over the defence line and head straight for the ball.
This is why one Linerat with Kick is low-key super useful.

So, with the Ravager cards revealed, how do you guys feel about this warband?

>> No.77178079

Depends on a lot of things. Rohan generally plays very hero-heavy, you probably don't want twelve to fifteen riders tagging along with all your heroes.

In most cases, I'd say you don't want to max out unless you're going for infantry spam like Isengard or your favorite variety of goblin.

>> No.77178182

maxing the warbands is on the latter end of things you need to think about. MESBG list building is something like;

>what is my army playstyle and how do I lean into that?
>what heroes do I NEED to have?
>what's a good general number of models to have at this point level for my army?
>what are the starring models/building around?
>what synergies do I incorporate to strengthen my star models?
>what specific models do I take to cover all my bases?
>nail down the list and put those models into warbands? (usually an even distribution is the best)

so for rohan at, say, 700, you'd go through the checklist:
>all-cavalry is the best way to play, with great combat abilities reliant on charges and fantastic buffing heroes, plus strong range to dictate engagement. the riders of theoden LL is great to build around, with strong and obvious buffs that newer and veteran players can utilize.
>need to have theoden and gamling with his banner. theoden's arise! rule is the core of the army and gamling's free might gives you all the rest you need.
>less than 25 cavalry models at 700 and you're really, really pushing the limit
>star models are your third hero (deorwine, eomer, or dernhelm) plus the royal guard. i like dernhelm since she gives some protection against magic and is pretty good at chasing down casters.
>the synergies are obvious, arise riders of theoden, using gamling to fuel heroic moves to get charge bonuses, and use ranged firepower to harass your opponent and force them to come to you.
>between royal guard, riders, and the heroes you really have everything you need
>theoden (100), gamling (115), dernhelm (75), 6 royal guard with throwing spears (102), and 22 riders (308) puts you exactly at 700. in case of maelstrom, it's best to give each hero 2 of the royal guard, and then split the riders as evenly as you can.
So to answer more simply, no, think of war bands as a function of hitting the amount of bodies your army needs.

Unfortunately because of how Deldar work, you ideally want several different boxes. You only get subfaction bonuses if all of your dudes have the right keyword (the cults, covens, and kabals), and some of them are quite good, like giving wracks a 4++ or all wyches re-rollable charges. To really get the most of them you have to know your roster well, and know when it's worth it to sacrifice subfaction bonuses or go all in on them. Although mono-wracks is probably fine if you're a beginner to KT, they're not that lethal but they're tough enough to contest a point.

A starter box with a couple of Stormravens and some Stormtalons on one side, and [literally any other faction] on the other side would probably sell like crazy. Then later on you drop the Thunderhawk and Stormhawk Interceptors, or even Xiphons as well as Drop Pods for troop transport missions.

Chaos is pretty limited in their options (outside of just being a different colored Space Marine faction with half of the flyer options), but Hellblades would work, and while I don't really like chaos shit I will admit that having tiny little Heldrakes would be pretty cool.

Between GW and Forge World Eldar and Dark Eldar have plenty of flyers. I think the only factions that really don't have enough options to support a full army are Tau and Tyranids (although having a bunch of little flying monsters would be fun to paint).

There's still a lot of places they can go with AI, assuming they want to. Half the shit I mentioned already had miniatures in the original game, so anything is possible.

To be fair, all you have to do to inspire a warband like Steelheart's Champions is roll a single successful defense dice, and with Stormsire all you have to do is cast a spell. All you have to do with the Farstriders is move them into enemy territory and they inspire.

You're not making any sense. Releasing new models doesn't make old models magically disappear.

Also you can't consider fighters in a vacuum - there are upgrades and ploys and everything. Also, steelharts were decent only at the very start of this game. Once Farstriders and Magore's were released they could have been squatted and nothing of value would have been lost.

Most people who buy new AI planes are, and follow me here, using them for epic. In epic there are no rules for the stormravens etc. Same with Epic30k. Epic30k players already print there own stuff, but might be inclined to buy official models if they’re good. Now keep following me here. Most people who like 6ishmm planes are grogs, the old imperial armor types, and so they want stuff they like. I can tell you right now, because i’m part of that market that would be drawn to an AI space marine release (IA grog who likes epic, titanicus, and old AI) that me and my mates would throw our hands up and turn away if they instead released storm talons and storm ravens and not thunderhawks etc. I couldn’t even use them in my games and I would find the aesthetically unappealing fans unsuitable for titanicus dioramas/basing/objectives/tokens.

not that other anon, but you misunderstand. You want a starter box to have broad appeal. They tend to automatically dovetail with other purchases so you want them to be pushed. Let's say your demographic for an AI box consists of new AI players, old AI players, people who are in to titanicus / heresy, and epic players. Doesn't matter what the percentages are.

If you release a starter with nu-marines stuff, you are only ever going to sell it to the first set of people. They can only be played in one ruleset, and they've got no presence in the fluff because they were just released last week or whatever. On the contrary, if you release a set with the T-hawk alongside something else that's been around, say a fire raptor or an old-school lightning? Now you've got broad appeal.

The Manta still shits on the Ta'unar's damage output, and is also a significantly larger model. The Manta used to be the biggest model in 40k, until the Warlord model came out. If they ever expand AT to 40k, it will be strange if Tau get crammed in there, the Ta'unar is only like 70% of a Warhound and it's by a wide margin the biggest land vehicle the Tau use.

The hexes make it a lot easier to deal with movement. I can't imagine ace maneuvers without hexes, that sounds like an enormous pain in the ass, and ace maneuvers really help make the game feel like actual air combat.
