Since there's no Kill Team general up:

Bought a pack of Skitarii to try my AdMech colors on before painting my Dominus and my Cult Mechanicus stuff, though not planning to actually expand on Skitarii themselves.

Are they good for Kill Team as a pure 10-man team? Are Vanguards or Rangers better and what upgrades are decent in Kill Team (seeing as I have never played Kill Team before)?

>> No.50333109

So, I am thinking about getting into 40K, most probably just for the painting. Since Mechanicus was always my favourite option, I plan to get their start collecting box.

But I have no idea what other gear do I need. I heard that stuff from GW is overpriced for its quality, so I plan to get in in some other miniature hobbyshop, but what should I get.

Also paints? Do you guys use Citadel or is there something better?

Citadel, Reaper and Vallejo paints are the most commonly used ones.

The Skitarii Start Collecting box is a great fucking deal if you want to start out with them, saves you a ton of money.

As for supplies, getting a few fine brushes of decent quality is a good idea (don't save on those and make sure you're not getting garbage). Blue tac can help fixate minis on a grip to easily reach everything without touching the mini itself.

Most importantly, and this'll take a lot of practice to get right: THIN. YOUR. PAINTS. Unthinned paint often ends up looking like play dough on your mini and nobody wants that.

There's nothing wrong with the Citadel stuff and by buying it in store you get access to people with experience. It's handy to have people there to help you in person and teach you more about painting, that and it's nice to sit with other people who waste their income on plastic men

I dunno, I'm pretty sure that's exactly what's going to happen. Maybe with some formations for some factions that let them operate as a full arm, but I see it as a way of them testing the waters for a variety of different factions and seeing which ones people enjoy the most. Then those can be grown into a new faction, like how Deathwatch and GSC were.

I think this is likely what it's gonna be, a sampler to test the waters for some more faction expansion while providing some slot in things for all Imperium factions.

>>50333264
I'd like to see Inquisition made more generic rather than needing the Ordos, just have a generic inquisitor choice with tons of options to specialize them for an Ordo

I'd also like to see some weird reverse ally things possibly since this is shaping up to be an odd codex. Namely a few options to take things from other Codices as choices, like have say DW vets and Battle sisters as troops choices in the book and just list off something like "Infantry Platoon from Codex Astra Militarum may be taken as a troops choice" something vaguely like that so it can ramshackle itself into a proper army with just its own codex.

I dunno, such an odd compilation would be nice if it had some fun weirdness going on for it.

I know you could just do standard ally stuff but it would be nice to do things like that to just have an inquisitor and their own little shit tier guard dudes under his direct command for fluff reasons.

CONFIRMED reliable source on dakka

Scarab Occult cost 2 Rhinos and a bolt pistol each, weapons are + a Plasma Gun on top

Statline is as Terminators but S+P, I1 and ML1. Have their own power that adds 1S to guns but if they roll a 1 to hit they take Perils

Magnus costs 60 Multimeltas and is:

WS6 BS6 S6 T6 I6 W6 A4 Ld10 Sv -/4++

Armed with Staff of Magnus (S+2, AP4, Cumbersome, Force and can shoot an AP3 template with a S equal to the number of Warp Charges spent that Psychic phase)

ML6, knows all Lore of Change powers and the Rubric of Ahriman which is super cool, it's a witchfire that makes people test Ld or take a wound for each point they fail by, and if it kills them you roll on a table

>But I have no idea what other gear do I need. I heard that stuff from GW is overpriced for its quality, so I plan to get in in some other miniature hobbyshop, but what should I get.

Citadel paints are okay
you need primer, most people use spray, i use brush-on primer, citadel brushon primer is shit, use valejo

brushes are something noone agrees on, which are better. natural, synthetic etc. It is important to have a good tip ->read up on basic brush care, things are sensitive

furthermore you need something to cut minis from the sprues, a good clipper and sharp knife/file (<-this is were people usually say citadel is overpriced compared to DIY store stuff for hobby electricians) I strech this as i have bought many a model from ebay, where the intrepid assembler did not properly clean the connection to the sprue, leaving a small bumb, which resulted in things not fitting properly

for glue plastic can be glued using plastic glue, non plastic (resin, metal) needs superglue. plastic can also be glued using superglue. USE glue sparingly.

To fill some gaps, you can use green stuff, which is a very finely grained modelling putty. Again GW stuff is rather expensive. For some things liquid green stuff (green stuff but in paint form) is also good.

Lastly while GW starters offer inch-rulers in stick form (for free), everyone shells out some $$$ for a rectractable ruler with an inch selection. The normal GW is again pricier then cheap DIY models, if you can find one with an inch scale.

next year's 2 books narrative campaign will have the dark angels and their successors preparing the greatest hunt ever as the dark prophet has escaped the rock (I'm assuming this will be the last trick the already infiltrated changeling will pull off in wrath of magnus); the second book instead will have the rules for the fallen who have gathered to the call of a madman on a daemonic planet full of jungles and monsters

incidentally this last book will have the rules for the lion

Hey guys, I'm from Nottingham HQ.

Just a heads up for you.

Death Guard, Khorne Berserkers and 1k Sons (we've seen this) are getting new books and models.

However, Slaanesh is getting removed in a Eldar 'story'. Eldar God will fight Slaanesh and keep him occupied, at which point the other 3 Gods will turn on him and kill Slaanesh. The Death Guard, KB and 1k Sons will turn on the Emperor's Children and kill them off. All the other Slaaneshi groups will also die.

The 'essence' of Slaanesh forms with another as of yet unknown Warp Power to create a 'shadow god' which is essentially Malal. It pretends to work with Chaos with the ultimate goal of turning on them and destroying them.

This links in with The Fallen of the Dark Angels. The Lion will 'side' with Chaos, when in fact, he isn't.

The Hrud first appeared as a simple illustration of a 'Nocturnal Warrior of Hrud' in the diagram "other dangerous aliens", along with early versions of a Kroot warrior, Necron, Tarellian dog soldier and other minor species, in the 3rd Edition Rulebook.[4]

The Skaven are humanoid rat creatures from Games Workshop's fantasy counterpart game to 40k, Warhammer. Both races have a similar unkempt, crouched appearance, scavenger culture, and both are depicted as having rat-like tails; both utilize warp-plasma based technology, which appears archaic but is technologically superior to other, contemporary engineering - the Hrud rifle is a "fusil" while the Skaven rifle is a jezail (a musket) - and finally both seem to have similar social habits being described as living in warrens or similar underground tunnel systems.

It could be presumed that the Hrud were originally meant to be Warhammer 40,000 counterparts to the Skaven.

Harlequin have a too-few-models problem, and so it's safe to assume everything's going to be getting shot at, including your skyweavers. You will want to jink. They have that 4+ invuln they can take once a game instead of jinking which is nice, but that realistically means they'll only get to shoot the haywire cannons once or twice a game.

They CAN disable tanks, but it's kinda a crapshoot. Troupes are much more adept at killing vehicles (all harlequin weapons can murder a vehicle considering they're hitting the back armour, and a troupe with carresses can make short work of knights and land raiders and the like). But using troupes to kill is also much more dangerous because they'll be getting shot at the next turn.

Long story short: idk if haywire is worth it. you may find yourself only being able to shoot them once or twice a game, and the shuriken cannons are MUCH better against infantry.

Cegorach's Revenge is really good. Jest is alright but you want those elites.

Starweavers are kind of a requirement for every troupe for the sake of splitting up dangerous fire on 2HP 10/10/10 Open Topped vehicles. Which really sucks due to the restrictions on formations and shit. But if you want to run a big footslogging troupe Jest or Cast of Players is alright.

#1 rule: take a lot of shadowseers. They're a requirement for footslogging units for Veil of Tears, and Dance of Shadows will ensure a starweaver will get to its target with a 2+ jink. Fog, Laugh, and Mirror of Minds are all also really fun.

>Deathwatch will get new models added to them at a later date!

How much later? Are there solid rumours? Where will the rules come from?

I just imagined they'd throw in a stopgap converted Techmarine for the codex photo and then release the thing later, if it wasn't done by then.

The Apothecary wouldn't be included because FNP in an independent Armies of the Imperium character would create cheese complications (just make it for marines and Independent Characters only, dammit!)

And then there's the Centurions, which might not fit the "quick and clean" stereotype of the Deathwatch, but it would suit them to have some kind of gear like that, because not all aliens are the same.
Being able to spearhead a unit of power-armoured guys could be useful too, I imagine.

There is the possibility that the Centurions don't sell well and are an "embarrassment" for GW they want to minimise, though honestly I like the aesthetic, it looks functional, compared to the lunacy of the Dreadknight.

I'm pretty sure GW took the idea of that BT Converted Dread when they designed it. I'm pretty sure they did the same for the Kyratan after /tg/ put legs on the Lord of Skulls.

Oh and GW also developed the Rail Rifle based on the gun the devs of Fire Warrior designed.

Deathwing has 2 new weapons not on tabletop and they're DA unique.

And what chapter do we keep seeing being mentioned recently?

Oh it might do. But GW has history with working with game developers to produce new gear then putting it on tabletop.

Oh also, another fun fact. GW is updating Bretonnians to coincide with the DLC released of Warhammer: Total War. This means new models, new units. Everything.

Really? Any limits as to what's allowed?
I think the dreadnoughts are a no-brainer, but Deathwatch isn't supposed to be a chapter capable of waging a full-sized war, so having too much "siege" equipment is pushing it.

Now if only GW included the models they sell in their rulebooks when it makes sense to do so and people might actually want to!

Librarian Dread. Death Company. Furious Dread. Death Company Dread. Lucifer Engine Vehicles. Sanguinary Guard (though Honour Guard equiv, they're differently stated and are arguably a lot worse). Sanguinary Priests. Death Company Chaplains.

Then you've got to fit all their special characters in. Dante, Sanguinour, Tycho (two versions, but he should be squatted anyway), Brother Corbulo, Mephiston, Seth (Yes he's FT, but he's in BA book) I think that's it.

I was referring to BTs in the core codex. All other tactics provide a bonus to the army that directly supports both the chapter's fluff as well as their intended playstyle, with WS, IF, UM and IH being pretty damn good and both Salamanders and RG at least filling their army's preferred course of combat, without any drawbacks on any of them.

Meanwhile BTs can't use their unique Troop choice in even a single Formation, aren't allowed to use Psykers by themselves, only get a situational protection ability in Adamantium Will and Crusader is not only available to a variety of armies, often available just as easily, but isn't a big bonus either since they'll run, get closer, get gunned down, not get their bonus attacks trigger since nobody would charge them after killing people in Shooting and then in their turn, by the time they actually arrive in melee combat, MAYBE have their bonus attacks on a few units but will be so thinned out that they aren't a threat anymore. Even allowing them to charge out of Drop Pods ("Paint the skies black" is one of their tactics after all) and/or after running would help a ton. Alternatively, make them at least beefy enough when footslogging or standing in the open to not just always die before even making enemy contact.

Even driving them up to your enemy in a 460+ points 10-man LRC squad isn't guaranteed to kill anything and most of the time if something dies due to that squad, it's because of the LRC and not the Crusaders.

>> No.50338814

>>50338763
Crusader squad min-maxing is great. As in, you can field a Crusader Squad of 5 for 70 and then pick a Lascannon and a Plasma Gun, and have a specialist group for 135 with a rhino and run around long-dicking xenos. This gives much-needed support to the dudes you might slog. Also, a LRC with 7 Assault Terminators and an Emperor's Champion is pretty intense, even though it costs about 650~ points.

Also, i don't know.
