Any place to get jump packs similar to the BA ones. Thought about converting some of those BaC Mk. IVs into assault marines, but only place to get those jump packs are bits stores, and they ain't cheap nor always available.

Can't you RAW take Erebus instead of Zardu and a chaplain, as Erebus is explicitly a chaplain and a Diabolist and a MotL? Seems like not having 300 points of marine HQ and 650 points of Daemon HQ is a good point.

For the tainted weapon on the Gal Vorbak, try a Power Fist instead.

Then, this list has a low model count. You have 6 models over 120 each, and only 2 aare vehicles.

I'd trim either Belakor or Fateweaver. Probably Weaver, as his lack of EW means when a S10 blast scatters onto him, he will die.

In exchange, I'd deck out the Gal Vorbak more, and the tacticals also. Grab some apothecaries.

Those? bitz sellers, or bitz recasters. I got 25 packs for $12

>> No.43728750

>bitz sellers

The bits sellers who are almost always out or charge a ton of money for them?

>> No.43728899

Word Bearers require that you run at least two HQ's, so you can't only run Erebus. Zardu Layak is better at boosting Gal Vorbak Squadrons than Erebus is anyways.
I probably should cut fatey, as not being my warlord he doesn't really bring anything, what do you suggest I replace him with? More troops? Some Ashen Circle?
Tainted Weapon on the Dark Martyr is awesome with rending and has come a long way for me at least

>> No.43729290

Well, you guys were right. Once I removed the Phalanx Warders and Breachers and replaced them with Tac Squads, Artillery Battery and Master Of Signals I finally learned what it means to earn ones points value back in Tabletop Wargaming. The game went so much faster than a usual IF game with me since unlike the Phalanx and Breachers the Tac Squads and other beefed up shooty squads actually made things happen. Otherwise as usual the second game with my Word Bearers (http://pastebin.com/aQ93tEBf) kicked ass. Anyway, now my Imperial Fists army looks like this:

2500 points


Alexis Polux - 165 points

Legion Centurion - 85 points
-Master of Signals

You don't need the Nurglings you only need to have 1 mandatory troop choice for allies. Take out Kairos Fateweaver you're not using enough psykers/Tzeentch guys to justify him being there. Replace Centurion with Erebus he completes the requirement and is better in every way. If you're using Zardu get his two extra guys he comes with. Get some transports for the Tac Squads especially if you intend for them to get up close.

Noob question:
Where do you buy 30k minis? Lurking for conversion material.

>> No.43729422

One more thing before I leave for the gym. Vote what I do with my Phalanx Warders now that I have no use for them! Which Legion should I convert them to/be the next army I should work towards?


The options are:

Thousand Sons: My favorite legion/chapter along with Word Bearers, but nothing's out yet and won't possibly be till next year.

Salamanders: Some of the best armor/defenses plus the best in flaming and melta? Sounds interesting.

Raven Guard: Lots of scouting/infiltrating rend cheese possible here. Dark Furies are the best assault squad, too. Bikes also viable and that's cool cuz bikes are cool.

Alpha Legion: Read their sections in the books for the first time last night. Most trolltastic Legion design by far right here.

Sons of Horus: Don't know them too well but their options look interesting from the surface.

Ultramarines: I have quite a few of these guys. Even in 40k I am mainly chaos, so a lot of my Imperial Fists are converted Ultramarines that came with Betrayal at Calth which I mainly bought to get myself more Word Bearers. And chances are if one of the other Legions get picked it's gonna be the Phalanx and these leftovers that are gonna be converted for the new army. Plus the way everyone has talked about Invictarii especially against the Phalanx Warders make me wanna try them out.

I'm glad to hear it went well. I'm also glad to see that you tried out some new things, despite us being a bit on the side of assholes. In any case, I do have a couple things to point out. You might want to split the lascannon squad into two smaller squads. Ten tank hunter lascannons is a bit much to shoot at most things. Same with the missiles, but not as bad. If it survives five lascannons, you either rolled for shit or you're shooting at something you probably shouldn't.

Also, I'm not sure that you need storm shields on every single terminator. It's a bit of a waste of points, as you only need to have majority T5. Then again, you might not want to risk losing the bonus, so I can understand the way you have that set up. I'm pretty sure you don't need everyone with thunder hammers, though. Power fists should suffice for practically everything.

And why didnt the custodes and sisters of silence, his home boys and girls from terra not think that maybe the BigE should get a ring on what Horus just told Viking Scruffybeard to do.

>> No.43730244

They had gone renegade, if that's what you are talking about. They didn't really have Imperial sanction, and they stopped trying to do so in the Emperor's name a long while back. The only reason they were called for the Dropsite Massacre was probably a lack of communication on the part of various members of the Imperium.

I think the main problem is that he felt the Word Bearers were moving too slowly. He let his sons get away with a lot, including the faith his Legion has shown even as the Imperial Heralds, but perhaps he was worried that Lorgar was going to ruin the Imperial Truth for the rest of the Imperium with all his religious nonsense.

It was supposed to be a secret, and it was connecting a human-build webway to an Eldar one - copying a xenos invention. It would've caused a good few problems, especially with the Imperium's anti-xenos policy, if the Emperor didn't show them the benefits of the thing first.

Horus was supposed to have more or less the Emperor's authority as the Warmaster. Think ASOIAF and the Hand.

I'm saying you can run Erebus and a Librarian or something. RAW Erebus+something random for HQ works. a Medic for FNP gal vorbak? Librarian for more psykers?

Anyways, I'd go with the fist as you will still ID almost anything with that, and you don't need to rend, AND you can fuck up vehicles. Shit's great.

Anyways, I'm not even sure Belakor is useful enough in that list either.

You can definitely drop Fateweaver, and beef up your mainstay squads though. Apothecaries are great.

I take everything as a learning experience. For example, I got to feel my stubbornness towards you guys at work. I am a business analyst, and I have to work with quality assurance as well.

Frustrating yet understandable cuz everyone wants to prove themselves.

I have Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields on every Termie honestly cuz Imperial Fists look cool as shit like that.

Giant blobs are encouraged, but not always a great idea. You might be fighting enough tanks to warrant ten lascannons. Few things warrant ten lascannons being fired at it and when it does happen, you should probably be using something a bit stronger than lascannons, or at the very least a better strategy.

Oh well, any I wanna try to run this for an army that can use Lorgar. It's very much based on tricks Chaos Space Marines and Chaos Daemons can use. The Diabolist Centurion, Lorgar, and Be'Lakor all pull the Invisibility close combat trick. Lorgar also takes Prescience or Precognition for more dirty tricks. Erebus comes in with the Gal Vorbak making an excellent deep strike head on charge team. The Ashen Circle does everything you expect from a fast attack style strike squad to do. All of these are supported with support fire from the tactical squads and meatshield/tarpit from Nurglings. What do you guys think? I'll finally buy Lorgar if this works.

Since the choice is between that and the autocannons, the answer is "maybe".

The autocannons are one more strength, meaning a better chance to pen/glance against vehicles, and Sunder improves the chance of glancing fortifications. Also S8 is the Instant Death threshold for almost all HH infantry, and AP3 is good for almost everything except Terminators and pimped-out characters. They also have a much longer range.

The plasma cannons are still plenty strong enough. S7 doesn't pen as often as S8, but then again, when you do pen you can actually cause an Explodes! due to AP2. AP2 also means it's even better against hardcore infantry like terminators and characters in artificer armor.

Interceptor and Skyfire means that the autocannons are extra great against flyers, with an excellent chance of stripping 2+ hull points off of an AV12 flyer (and a reasonable chance even if it jinked) as soon as it comes on. Conversely, Deep Striking units (read: Terminators) will be vaporized by the plasma cannons, meaning that if it's placed well it can fuck up alpha strikes before they happen.

In summary, both are good but it depends on what you want it to do. This is pretty true of everything HH, since ForgeWorld actually can into balance unlike their parent GW. Most alternatives are good in the right circumstances and points-equivalent generally, so it's a case of whether or not it meshes with the strengths and covers the weaknesses of the other stuff you want to run.

>> No.43734146

Mortarion, the legion specific terminators, tac squads, heavy support with flak missles, spartan

>> No.43734227

In that case, I'd go with the plasma cannons (well, I do and what you run is almost exactly what I run).

This is because Death Guard legion-specific terminators (Deathshroud, Grave Wardens) are awesome against almost everything EXCEPT other legion's terminators, whether generic or legion-specific ones.

So the 4-shot S7 AP2 BS5 re-roll to-hit shots, with the option to have a BS5 re-roll to-hit Large Blast instead for the cost of Gets Hot, is a big advantage. Flack missiles can handle flyers, and ordnance lascannons on the spartan can duel with heavy armor (along with Deathshroud trolling with mass-Melta bombs).

I thought the Night Lord's just kind of showed up and volunteered to help. And the loyalists were like "You guys are kind of renegades, but this is some serious shit so we'll take all the help we can get." Which sounds naive, but when you consider the Night Lords were somewhat of a proto-inquisition in how they dealt with traitors when they were part of the GC, it sort of makes sense that they would volunteer to fuck up the traitor legions.

>> No.43735809

Are 20 man Assault Marine squads viable for troop choices with Night Lord's rules? Not the RoW as taking more troops than the three Terror Squads would be silly.

If you took Curze you guarantee 1st turn Night Fighting so all your dudes get stealth and +1 to that on first round for being spooky men from the shadows. This would give a blob some turn 1 survivability to try and get to assault range without getting shot to shit. Not perfect, but better than nothing. Jump packs make your dudes bulky so they count as two models while determining whether they outnumber their victims for the +1 to wound for A Talent for Murder.

I've never really played with jump infantry much so I'm not sure if this would be a viable troop strategy. Any thoughts on this?

Just because it is your favourite colour scheme to jerk off to doesn't mean you get to dictate the lore to people. Or, maybe you just have a more superficial understanding of the Dark Angels fluff then you realize/are willing to admit to yourself?

Because frankly, thier entire back story is secrecy. Secrecy over betrayals. Hiding that fact from all. That no one can know the TRUTH, not even regular Dark Angels. It is left ambiguous and mysterious in the fluff for this exact reason. You don't get to go "no, my THEORY is correct! Your THEORY/(or "meme" apparently, wtf) is WRONG."
No, you have a theory and they have a theory based on the "facts"/fluff. By it's very nature and the entire backbone of the Dark Angels mythos it is always up for debate.

Anyone have any experience running full campaigns? We have 12 players now with 5 new guys and we were thinking it would be a good way to let them build up and get regular games.

Rough idea is to have it be a system on the onset of the Heresy. We had the idea of every player being neutral with the ability to declare as loyalist or traitor down the track. To prevent one side just having everyone we were thinking of putting a 6 player cap on each faction.

Game types and sizes would be mutually agreed upon by players up the maximum points of whatever one player could bring.

Different territories would have different bonuses and could be potentially upgraded by their owners for other benefits.

From my experience, this is how I rank the recasters I've purchased from:

Top Tier: Private Recaster. Always happy with what I receive from him. Uses non-toxic resin similar to FW but just a touch more brittle. Not as large of a selection as Z or CCON but adds new stuff every month. Price is at least 50% of FW if not cheaper (Cerastus knights are $70) USD.

Ok Tier: CCON, stuff is kind of brittle but he packs well and rarely is anything broken on arrival. Vehicles are all excellent, spindly things not so much. Pricewise some stuff is cheaper some is more expensive. Still hell of a lot cheaper than FW.

Piece of Shit Tier: Zhanchui. Ordered an Arvus Lighter and FW Shadowsword from him. Arvus light was a warped piece of turd no amount of heat gunning could save. Gave it to my friend to turn it into terrain. Shadowsword piece were all broken and warped as fuck. Also since it uses the plastic baneblade chassis and is 150 pieces, I'll probably never get around to building it. Only good thing about Z is that he's so inexpensive I don't care about wasting the money to get terrain rubble.

FW's stuff is nice, but it is LUDICROUSLY overpriced for what in the end is simply a toy soldier. Buying tactical squads for $40 is bad enough, buying them for a hundred or more is just absurd. I draw my line when it comes to prices if an infantry squad is costing me a solid hundred or more.

What's worse though is that those upgrades are barely worth it at all (I can buy similar looking helms at Puppets of War stupidly cheap in comparison) considering they cost more than the starter army itself. I mean for that price, I could buy TWO boxes and have sixty space marines opposed to thirty guys in slightly pimped gear. Call me utilitarian, but those prices are simply batshit.

I like certain Mechanicum models and the SA because they have an early sci-fi look to them, it's kind of refreshing in a way.

So, I got the BoC box, and I love it so far.

>> No.43751296

> Word Bearers, Iron Warriors and Death Guard
Let's hear the reasons you're interested in each.

I'm going with Imperial Fists for my BaC boxes because 1) They're a loyalist faction in 40k still 2) They can ally with my Death Korps in 40k and be siege-bros together 3) In 30k there is a good paint scheme that just has yellow on the shoulder pads instead of every-fucking-where.

Read all the fluff from the HH books not just the red Istvaan book. Maybe read some BL books too if you are into that. Consider paint schemes, consider play style, consider lore. Sleep on it.

>Iron warriors
Having read Angel exterminatus when it got released, I got more interested in them. I bought the Siege of Castellax book when that was released as well. I find myself liking their "chaos is there, but who really gives a shit, lets kill some iron fists". As their modeling goes, they have those really neat mechanicum-implants and whatnot. Only thing I really dislike is that they have a purely metal color scheme, and I tend to not like those too much, since I can't get them to look as spiffy as the others.

>Death Guard
Their pre-heresy selves were pretty rad, with viral warfare, reaper-esque looks and a good, solid color-scheme. They later favor Nurgle, which is my shared first-place favorite Chaos God. I have modeled a few Nurgle minis before, conversion-wise, and it tends to be a lot of fun. Their fluff is sadly much less than the others, as no-one really have gotten around to writing them yet.
Did I also mention dat color-scheme?

>Word bearers
They are the crazed zealots in red armor that has always piqued my interest of sorts. Their fluff is partly tragic, and partly stupid, but it works in the full end. Their conversion opportunities are very large, and red-silver is not only a good looking color scheme, its one that gratefully easy to paint. Plus, they have plenty of stuff from FW, unlike the other two - iron warriors in particular!

it's harder to decide than I thought it would be.

the answer is never not going to be combi-plasma and axes anon, no matter the legion or method of insertion.

They ARE the operator marines on the table. All shooting, manuevering, and the "right tools for the job" kind of playstyle. Their Rite of War is the ultimate in SURPRISE MOTHERFUCKER tactics. Everything they have from wargear to units to buffs is optimized for one thing and one thing only:

Maximum enemy casualties and minimizing your own.

Seriously though; they are great at straight killing other marines.

Theres no sneaking in tabletop, but what RG can do is "set-up" a great ambush. Their RoW gives you a reroll to go first, Preferred Enemy ICs, and drop pods for most units. Combine with army wide infiltrate and you can have the right units in the best place before the game starts. I and other RG players find that we win during deployment. Drop pods rain down Seekers or Tac supports with plasma, Kaedes Nex erases untis, Mor Deythan with rending combi flamers in scouting/infiltrating rhinos erase more units, Maun is pure buffgasms with his reroll reserves for flyers and pods as well as his 18" no-scatter from DS bubble.

Hmmmm. Emperor's Children are a legion of very open-minded individualists but they are also quite elitist. Space Wolves value every member of their fold but ruthlessly bully weakness. Blood Angels have the recovery and redemption of mutated rad-wasters into beautiful and powerful marines as central to their concept and character, as well as a lot of stuff about noble sacrifices by those with power - they're a good candidate. World Eaters just fight and fight and fight and fight - the strongest deserve to win but there's no "leadership" so to speak. Mortarion hated his father and overthrew all the monstrous lords of Barbarus, but perhaps he became like them in the end. His Legion just gets on with the job, without the micro-management and cruelty inherent in the Iron Warrior's organisation. The Raven Guard are all about overthrowing slavers and executing enemy leaders.

The strongest candidates in my views are
Blood Angels
World Eaters
Raven Guard

with the Death Guard not far behind. EC and SW are neutral, then most Legions are slighlty authoritarian. Dark Angels, Iron Hands, Ultramarines and Sons of Horus are very authoritarian.

Just wish they'd get SA style tercios. Unless I go heavy on tanks or Provenances, I'm not gonna be able to make very big armies (point wise). Would be fun to get special weapons squad style things. 2 special weapons on grenadiers is not much.

I don't think the Blood Angels hace ever really had a problem with authority though, have they? I mean, their loyalty to the emperor and mostly rigid adherence to the Codex can attest to that. If anything, I'd move White Scars up the list.

>> No.43755450

It depends on how you look at the term "anti-authoritarian". I was using it as "doesn't value dominance or hierarchy within one group or over another", which is why I put Blood Angels up top. Essentially the Blood Angels (by my reasoning) are not that fussed about authority.

The sort of people who have big problems with AN authority, are sometimes the former - like the Raven Guard - but are at other times very authoritarian people who want to see it done right. The real life Mongolians were a conquering empire par none, who could be said to have a problem with authority - specifically the authorities which they sought to replace. Whether the White Scars totally adhere to this I don't know, I'm not a Scars expert.

I'd put them in the same spot as EC and SW on the list; against some types or natures of authority, for others.

It's gotta be Word Bearers. No other Legion/Chapter has pulled the level of deception and trolling that they have. Alpha Legion's trolling could only mess with Roboute from Ultramarines. Night Lords could only kill a few Ultramarines including a Captain. Word Bearers' approach at deceitful anti-authoritarianism led them to kill half the Ultramarines legion. That too being highly outnumbered. The only time Chaos did more damage was during Isstvan V, and that required every traitor legion except Thousand Sons who hadn't turned yet, and would've not been possible if not for Erebus master planning Horus' turn. Word Bearers are the most clever and evil example of anti-authoritarianism in the 40kverse. Post-Monarchia Word Bearers' anti-authoritarianism bent was so strong that it basically is the cause of everything important in the 40kverse that isn't attached to The Age Of Strife, Eldar/Necrons, and Tyranid Hive Fleets.

He never accepted anything in the thread, and it's common for people blown out in one to resurge in the next like nothing happened.

>So I can just make HW team on a 25mm base?
I'm not familiar with the sizes of Imperial Guard HW team bases. Honestly however if the model isn't too small for it then I'm not seeing any reason why you couldn't. Models and units get rebased or multiple base types all the time.

No, that's how you spun it to have an argument. I complained that Militia didn't have platoons like SA has (so it's not a new thing in 30k), that FW didn't have UPGRADES like laslocks and lasrifles, etc. Only model I asked for was the quad mortar rapier, since the SA one has the operator moulded into the thing. But even then it was just "use the heavy quad mortar" which is a totally different unit. You faggots can't live without a dreadnought variant or shoulder pads for your waifu legion, but everyone else can just fuck off and go build your units.

Slow as fuck the second slowest after the Salamanders.

>Word Bearers
Good in melee. Not awful but not amazing at ranged siege. Have the best psyker support till the Thousand Sons are out. Get amazing daemon support. Color schemes have a lot of potential (for example my Tac Squads/The Ashen Circle/Storm Eagles are still silverish grey because they aren't daemons but my Gal Vorbak/Mhara Ghal/Diabolist are red because they are the daemons who went through the Warp while my Chaplain is black cuz Chaplain while my Praetor/Chaplain's jetbike are red/silverish grey/black cuz they rep the whole army.)

Also you can get Chaos Daemons as allies. Feel free to have a freakin Bloodthirster or run Screamerstar/Tzeentch daemons cheese if you want.

Due to all the daemonic based options and the variety in color schemes, Word Bearers are imo the most versatile legion out right now.

Nah they aren't Terminators, though they get compared often to them just because they are that good and why I want to try this Ultramarines army.

I wouldn't have asked if they could auto-deepstrike. Welcome to 30k, friend. If you are a 40k CSM guy like me, lotsa good times to be had!

Oh I forgot to say, even though Death Guard are slow as shit, they have great shorter ranged heavy weapons support.

Who remembers what Lhorke said to Lorgar? Didn't it go

>> No.43759272

I had the idea from what the W.E. who were betrayed at Istvaan 3 would do when they see their brothers trying to kill them, and that the last of the librarians in the W.E. renamed themselves the war hounds before getting their shit fucked by Angron. Maybe the captain looked out at the howling throng of madmen in blue and white armor, then turned to his more rational survivors and said "Better to die as the Emperors War Hounds than to live like that."
Lhorke is a fucking badass.

‘My Legion has suffered enough,’ boomed a mechanical vox-voice. A huge claw crashed against Lorgar’s breastplate, throwing him from his feet. ‘Now we must endure corruption as well? Was madness not enough of a curse?’

>> No.43759409

He is. Even Leman respected him.
Thanks, Anon. If it wasn't for Angron, Lhorke could have killed Lorgar.

>> No.43759426

>Implying Lorgar can't just wreck Lhorke guys if he wanted to
People really like to underestimate how powerful Lorgar eventually became.

A Dreadnought out of nowhere is surprising. Just keeping wailing on him until he can't use Chaos space magic.

Have them led by Shabran Darr

>> No.43759619

Why would you be able to do so?

Can you run your Howling Banshees in your Dark Eldar force?

When I said
>Legiones Astartes is a different army to Adeptus Astartes.
I wasn't lying.

We have the thread easily available in the OP. Anyone who wants to see what you said, can see it. I'm not repeating the points myself and others made repeatedly already, beyond the simple summary that 30K is mainly about marines, two Imperial Armies have been released already with more to come and you're an impatient baby for whining that the variant YOU wanted didn't come out immediately. You want to scream some more, I'll leave you to it.

Two people were making mistakes in the last thread. One of them learnt and has adapted and improved. You should too.

>> No.43759692

No, because that wouldn't make sense given the question.

>"What do I need to buy to use my 40K army in 30K?"
>Everything that isn't a vehicle both systems share.

>> No.43759730

Not being what? Authoritarian? Anyone who isn't a supporter of the Word Bearers' creed, Imperial or Chaotic, gets punished, and the most rewards go to the most devout. Preachers make the decisions. That's hierarchical and authoritarian.

Whenever Games Workshop ups prices, Forgeworld has to match it. Bullshit GW reasoning.

>> No.43759835

Not enough to stop Lorgar from psykering it up. Hell considering how powerful Lorgar is, he actually probably saw it coming, too. Lorgar's smart as shit. He knew they wouldn't kill him. Hell every Word Bearer's pretty smart except Kor Phaeron who's approach to turning Guilliman was dumb.

If your approach to anti-authoritarian is strictly anarchic, then only the World Eaters occasionally fit (in other words they only fit anti-authoritarian when they go so crazy they start killing each other, too which is fine cuz blood for the blood god.)

>> No.43759879

Oh and my bad earlier in this thread I gave the credit of downing Guilliman to Alpharius. Roboute kills Alpharius, but gets insta death paralyzation'd by Fulgrim.

>> No.43759904

They're free to go and take a look. I stand behind what I said about the problems of FW not giving Militia platoons and there being no 1st party support in terms of wargear, like weapons. You're the ones who decided it was crying like a baby, when all I did was point out problems associated with the release. Sorry FW isn't perfect.

>> No.43759906

>Lorgar's smart as shit.
>Hell every Word Bearer's pretty smart except

Is that why they got their shit kicked despite the element of surprise and decades to prepare?
