Primaris Custodes :^)

Real answer idk, maybe some kind of dedicated fire support infantry like a custodes devastator squad. Solar Auxilia themed support troopers could be neat too. If Custodes deploy somewhere, they're not likely to waste them doing guard duty or any of that shit, so it'd be cool if they had some elite human troops from Terra around to bulk up their board presence a bit.

Mechanically I like custodes in that they look nice visually and offer a cheaper entry into the hobby, but they feel a little distasteful, sorta like primaris in the lore, in that it's just more space marine except better. Couldn't we have had some more xenos or chaos variation instead?

TQ:

The obvious answer is to look to another successful range with very few models. TSons

The solution is to bring in units from Age of Sigmar to fill out the Custodes unit count. Stormcast Eternals are already gold and will fit in well of the Custodes theme of being big and gold.

This will expand the model line dramatically and let players have an army for both game systems.

properly merge the 2 into a single force.

It's a strange thing to do. Are you intending to run them as night lords or as emperor's children? Technically you can include noise marines with a night lord's army, but it doesn't make a lot of lore sense I guess.

The last time AoS put out a big khorne release, we didn't get world eaters, so who knows. We might see a plastic noise marine or zerker kit with the CSM codex or we might not, but I don't suspect you'll see either WE or EC split off into their own faction like TS and DG until all the armies get updated for 9th, but having a kit or two released with with a rules update isn't unheard of.

The main character is a fucking idiot and INSISTS on getting married to ONLY ONE woman before he marries any of them.
They’re all women because it was a colony ship that first landed there ages ago and they clone a bunch of women over and over again and there’s a group of scientists women treated with the same reverence as the scientist class martians in the Barsoom series.
Not a clue how the book ends but fucking damn it felt so dated with how much he insisted on marrying.

Oh jesus. I wouldn't worry too much about math hammer minutia before you even have your first army. You will probably lose a ton of games even with a top tier list since you won't realize what are make it or break it moves. I'd actually just focus on cool models. sure don't buy a random hodgepodge but having an army you like the look of will matter more. and you'll care more about getting it painted up where as if you chase the meta and it changes and top tier units are nerfed then you might not care as much about your army anymore.

Fuck, you're in a similar situation to me then. No idea what the rules for the pandemic in your area are, but getting your friend to work towards self improvement and becoming independent are crucial. At this point that friend has burned some of their most productive and development years doing nothing so he's already well behind the curve and going to struggle with that professionally, provided they have the skills/education to enter a profession. So it's an uphill battle. Getting your friend to distance himself from his parents could help, but there is still the issue of him being able to support himself and your possibly taking that financial risk can be ruinous for you. I ended up having to cut off the friend due to them having gone too deep down the rabbit hole and seeing any action of self-reflection and self-improvement as a problem so I can only provide input on what to look for to reduce the pain you might feel. I still miss the friendship I had with my friend at times, but the pain of trying to help him near the end and debt he incurred with me became too much to bare.

Unless you and the people around you are able and willing to mobilize and get him the help he'll need to be a functioning human being, you're better off cutting him off, or this will only hurt you more in the long term.

I'm really sorry to say this, but your friend might beyond help. >>77506041 and
>>77506082 are unfortunately right. I don't think his grandparents were trying to do him wrong, but the age gap and extreme issues with his parents inevitably contributed to his situation. It hurts to say this, but outside of an intervention and massive system shock, your friend is fucked. He's so far down his rabbit hole of making sense of his own situation and escapism, it almost sounds like he's lost touch with reality. From personal experience I can say that the only person that can help him is himself, he has to realize and come to terms with his situation, actions, past, escapism, and how it's impacting his present and future. But even an intervention isn't going to have much of an impact unless he's willing to open himself to change and engage in some serious self-reflection. /adv/ might be able to help, but this is your friend's problem, the most you can do is help steer him on the path of self improvement. But it's his path to walk, so there's only so much you can do. It's a terrible thing to say, but you have to look after yourself first, if your friend refuses to engage and improve, the only thing you can do is try to minimize the pain you are going to go through. It's greedy, it's self-centered, and sounds awful, but it's your friend's issue, you can't live his life for him and guide him.

I mean you didn't do an awful job, your issues seem to be more related to brush control for the more minute details. The candy-red of 30k TS is rough and can be very difficult, along with how if you were to use a gloss coat can be difficult to strip and start anew. From how you've painted the mini it looks like you are new to most of it. You just need to come to terms with picking what is honestly a higher difficulty of paint scheme along with starting at a skill level that isn't high enough to accomplish it. You've done an okay job in most areas except where the colors run together and have some bad overlap. Watch some tutorials, practice, and improve. I believe you have the ability to accomplish what you've set out to do and just need to grind out the practice to get there. Everyone is awful at painting at the beginning, it's a skill that require practice and research to truly get good at. Stripping minis is easy, depending on where you live /wip/ and /40kg/ can provide you with what you are looking for to strip the paint and improve (simple green works in some countries but not others due to a change in formula). Look at it as a skill your improving upon and revel in doing so. I think you've done a good job for starting and can only do better as you learn and grow

Eh, I wouldn't worry. They're siphoning resources from 40k to try to build an AoS audience. Public companies are all about growth, and they think they can pitch AoS to people who aren't currently buying 40k stuff. Further, their current staff just like working on it better. They're able to do whatever and it's encouraged because the more far out stuff is the easier it is to protect the IP/copyright. The issue for them is that it's just not a very interesting setting. If you're fantasy inclined and want to play a game with your friends, D&D's available and easy enough to find players for, where there's nothing similar in the sci-fi space.

AoS didn't take initially as "Fantasy needs space marines" + "The legal department needs you to make everything copyright friendly" didn't really pan out. They've been sorta flailing around since then trying to find a niche. They don't really have any competition in the fantasy space because their major competitors shot themselves in the foot and basically killed their own games. I think they'll try "The Old World" and if that takes off they'll squat AoS, and if it doesn't they'll keep flailing around until AoS takes off or a bean counter finally wins the "how long are we going to sink money into this?" argument and they put AoS on the Lord of the Rings battle game maintenance mode.

40k's gotten a reasonable number of updates lately, and a lot of it was built around rolling the snowflake marine chapters into the main codex, which is honestly healthier than all of them having their own. They seem happy to let supplements stick around for a longer time period, so hopefully it means quicker updates on Xenos, Chaos, and other Imperium factions.

They'll run it like that for awhile, but I expect that if one product is way more popular than the other they'll kill off the one that doesn't do well. I see it panning out one of three ways:

1. TOW is niche like 30k and AOS is way more popular. It gets its initial releases and then is left in maintenance mode for a long while while they either just absorb FW or find another project for FW to work on. GW continue pushing AoS and most people forget TOW exists.

2. TOW is way more popular than AOS, so GW dips their toes in. This would be similar to how GW released betrayal at calth and burning of prospero. If it takes, GW expands its TOW line, and begins neglecting AOS. If that persists, they roll the factions they've created for AoS into TOW units or place them somewhere in the world that hadn't been explored before "expanding the lore" so they can still sell the kits. AoS gets soft squatted at this point, depending on sales numbers, and all new kits are TOW focused while maybe having AoS rules too.

3. They both maintain some popularity. TOW is handled by FW, and GW keeps to AOS and both games sorta continue along.

Same reason they squatted fantasy, low sales. AoS is somewhere between D&D miniatures and 40k in terms of sales. Better than D&D miniatures, worse than 40k. If a bunch of fantasy grogs or people who liked the total war game hop into ToW, I guarantee you GW will try out a betrayal at calth style set for it. AoS is being pushed purely because they think they can grow the audience. GW's not averse to dropping things or cannibalizing things if they think it'll work out better for them, after all that's how AoS started.

Go look at AoS's secondary market, it's absolute shit. You can see how their books rank on amazon compared to 40k, it's dismal. There's also like zero video game presence. AoS has been out since 2015. The setting is just not selling to people who don't want to play AoS already. I thought when warmahordes imploded and none of the fantasy clones took off that AoS would have easy sailing, but 40k getting back on its feet after the disaster that was 7th and D&D continuing to grow in popularity thanks to things like stranger things + critical role and all that seems to have siphoned up AoS's potential audience.

so long as they are on 32mm bases it doesn't matter. It's hard to tell form a photo at times. I think you might want to swap the black for a brighter color to better compliment your reds. Although /wip/ can give you far better insight than I can, but is very slow to respond. I did some BA for a friend and really liked doing a white for the bolters to make the mini brighter overall. But that was partially to better contrast with my darker chaos marines. Maybe an off-white would better suit the cloak since you have a snow themed base going. Out of curiosity, did you use baking soda for the base? If so, it turns yellow over time and might negatively effect your color scheme

So I got the shadowspear half and got Pic related. My idea is to fill out the bolter and melee units and make two separate squads. My question is are special weapons (melta for example) any use in the melee squad or will they not be able to shoot anyway while running and charging into shit?

There have been games I think, but they're mobile microtransaction crap. There's a game upcoming called stormground by a no name studio that doesn't seem to have made any games before. Some of the people are ex-relic at least. Still, looking at it, I doubt it'll be anywhere near as popular as fantasy video games. The basic issue for AoS is that the secondary market feeds into the main game. I read a 40k book and played dawn of war before I got into 40k. I played shadow of the horned rat before I got into fantasy. It's been 5-6 years since AoS came out and it has nothing of note in the secondary market to feed it.

yeah a much bigger problem with your melee squad is most legions don't get advance+charge

Personally I woulnd't take the special weapons on a melee unit simply bc you want them to be in melee and the melta gu is not gonna be able to shoot and is going to have a significan'tly shittier melee profile now that chaiswords actually have AP.
I'm not too familiar with CSM to be honest but I'd put meltas on something that can deepstrike like terminators or a dedicated unit like chosen

That's what I did, but got 2 shadowspear halves +this. The only issue I found was that the CSM aspiring champ doesn't have the options I'd like, so I assume some of those options will get removed when the codex comes around if they do it like death guard where you can only configure the squad with what's in the box.

You need a unit of bubonic astartes. Which dont have to be plague marines core unit. So you would take Blightlord or Deathshroud which are super good as well. I mean, Plague Marines are completely fine to take now as well, not like they are bad anymore.
