> Deathwatch (2 squads plus a watch master, 1 for fluff from our RPG group, 1 for crunch)

You're conflating what the afterword says from a position of authorial authority: "Humanity loses to Chaos in the bitter end", with fallible in universe speculation about the consequences of the "victory" of Chaos.

The ONLY definitive thing the afterword says is that Humanity failed to free itself from the Warp, so it's all downhill for them from here.

I just built 3 Bullgryns and converted an old Ogryn model to be a Bullgryn with Club and Brute Shield.

I probably won't play any games until after Christmas, but up until then I'll be painting and getting my force ready. I'm looking forward to buying and magnetizing Hydras/Wyverns so I can complete an Emperor's Wrath formation to complete my big 2k list.

But before that, I intend to have this army painted. I have a mechanized 1000 point list that worked well and is all painted, so I'm trying a footslogging one that is more fun and less me sitting there rolling dice.

>> No.50794318

Working (slowly) on some Skitarii Rangers. Getting really bored of painting those, then I can do some new models like the Kataphron Destroyers.


One, Admechs vs Chaos. My Infiltrators immolated themselves and his Lord and Lord's squad in a blaze of Taser Goad 6s and the Axe of Blind Fury.
One of my Dragoons tarpitted two CSM squads and killed a unit of Possessed on its own, and my Dominus tanked two Laspreds for half the game with Eternal Warrior and 2+ repair. He never dies.
Ended on a 7:7 draw thanks to some Chosen getting a 4" run for Linebreaker (not too surprising).

Hopefully an Imperial Knight Warden to round off my War Convocation, plus a bunch of odds and ends. Still missing superglue, cork for bases, greenstuff and lots of paints. Also saving a bit for the new Tech-priest Archmagos, he looks badass.

Really the issue is that the people complaining don't like that BRB fluff bit, but just ignored it before, because they though maybe the Imperium would win in the end after all.

hydra Gauntlets in a 5 man squad gave them 14+d6 attacks
Haywire grenades were kinda crap in assault, and were useless against walkers (Could only hit on a 6, could only pen on a 6, could only remove a weapon on 6 and had to remove all weapons and immobilize before it died)

6th came out and made most of DE melee weapons useless, and they could not survive well to get into melee with infantry.
However vehicles got nerfed hard, HPs were now a thing, and tanks couldn't overwatch.
This caused haywire grenade suicide units to be fucking broken against vehicles in 6th with a 5 man squad consistently doing 3+ HPs a turn.
Additionally an Archon still needed an escort to get into melee and wyches were over 1/2 the points of incubi and have a invulnerable in CC.

7th edition then made the effectiveness of the DE melee weapons even worse, and made it even harder for wyches to survive getting into melee.
Then they made it so only the squad upgrade leader could then be upgraded to get haywire grenades (and then later on FAQed only 1 grenade per squad per melee).
Finally the minimum squad size for wyches became 5 man (so no squad + HQ in a venom) making it so they can't even escort an HQ well anymore.
(That and the archon become shit in melee, and incubi got cheaper, but the succubus is decent in melee now at least)

It would weaken it.

The warp mirrors the local space that it surrounds.

When the war in heaven was going on, khorne was created. When the bubonic plague was going on, nurgle was created. When Obama was ejected, tzeentch was born, and when the eldar created /d/, slaanesh was born.

It stands to reason that if the nids pacified the galaxy, the warp too would be pacified.

So lets discuss the Chaos needing humanity thing. If Chaos needed humanity, then how come there were daemons around billions of years before humanity crawled from Earth's biosoup?

And if the Warp was calm and peaceful berore the war in heaven why was it so full of daemons that some race created massive planet sized prisons to isolate and contain them? Something go to give.

>The secret that the Black Legion sought, and that the Adeptus Mechanicus were racing them to seize, lay deep beneath the surface of Amethal. It was ancient – unspeakably, unimaginably so. It was a device the size of a world, forged by godlike beings before Terra had even spawned its first single-celled organisms. It was a cage for the infernal creatures of the Warp, a weapon to dwarf the Damnation Cache that had slipped through Abaddon’s fingers on Pandorax. And, according to the divinations of Lord Xorphas and his followers, it was full to the brim. It required only the correct ritual to be broken open, at which point the sudden release of so many Warp entities would tear a gaping wound in reality itself…

>The First Captain, initially angry at the Magos’ imperious summons, had become serious and engaged as Ivasnophon revealed the nature of the technology that he sought upon Amethal. It was an ancient prize, something made by those who ruled the galaxy long before the first Terran life forms emerged from the primordial ooze. Other examples of its sort had been found across the galaxy from time to time, hints at an incredibly potent weapon against the powers of Chaos. Ivasnophon specialised in the location, excavation and imitation of such archeotechnological treasures. For centuries he had been following a tenuous trail of clues towards this, his greatest find. Amethal was not a planet, he explained, but rather a skin of rock and biosphere stretched as camouflage over an ancient cage. Vast beyond belief, wreathed in arcane wards and dark technologies, it was a prison-eternal for daemonic entities. It was the Magos Dominus’ belief that the Amethal Cage contained hellish beings beyond count, trapped for millennia behind warded bars. Why the ancients had sought to isolate these creatures from the Warp was a mystery lost to the mists of time, but the Magos was certain they had succeeded. Captain Karlaen was horrified at this revelation, for if that were true, then the empyric inmates of this world represented a dreadful danger to the defences around the Cadian Gate. At the same time, he was not slow to grasp Ivasnophon’s purpose on this world. Building upon his countless decades of study and experimentation, the Magos Dominus was at last nearly able to replicate the technologies of the Daemon cage. He was weeks, months at most, from creating – and then mass producing-devices that could cage Daemons on a vast scale. Though not a permanent solution to the daemonic threat, such devices might end daemonic incursions as soon as they began, and thus turn the tide in the war for the Cadian Gate.

5 KWs in a venom does 5 wyches in a venom better
4 inubi + HQ in a venom is better than 5 wyches +HQ in a raider
9 incubi +HQ in a raider is too expensive for 1 squad, and will either devastate the in melee so badly they are stuck in the open on the enemy turn, or fail to do anything and die.
Meanwhile 9 wyches will definitely not quickly win a melee keeping you stuck in for longer, and IF they actually make it to melee they are more durable than incubi, but they are missing out on the bonus wargear that a 10 man squad gets.

10 Incubi + HQ in a tantalus likely isn't as good (see above reasons) as a 15 man wych squad (full special weapons) + HQ in a tantalus.

I like to have a 30 man Infantry Squad and a 40-50 man Conscript squad. Like others have said, Priest to make them Fearless, Psychic Powers to make them better.

Many came against us – the soulless ones, the krork at the apex of their might, in comparison to which this latest folly is laughable, the cythor and a thousand other races so terrible your intellects could not contemplate them.

If you a) play Tau and b) run a Stormsurge, the problem is you, not everyone else. There's a reason they all refuse to play at the first sight of a Stormsurge, and it's not just because of the Stormsurge.

This isn't "if you cross the street as soon as you see a black person" it's "a black person with sagging pants, do rag, a gun sticking out of his belt, looking directly at you like he's going to mug you, in a bad neighborhood, and you can hear his buddies around the corner."

I do. My first ever game had 2 models painted, rest primed, and it was so unenjoyable I swore off unpainted models being played forever. Even my opponent who just had a basic 3 color minimum paintjob which was literally just red paint and some black on a few tank panels with no other detailing or washes or anything looked better than primed/unpainted stuff.

My army is small but damn is it good looking and enjoyable. It also keeps me on track with my painting, working through the units I need first squad by squad, slowly turning it into an army that will eventually be amazing when complete.

How does it feel your entire powerbuff comes from a half-decent writer's unsolved daddy issues?

Because from the outside looking in, Chaosfags all just look in denial that not a single place outside of fanfic-tier stories from Black Library will call them powerful. How will they even beat Necrons, Orks, or Nids? They can maybe, with the help bitches of the race they're trying to kill, draw against Eldar or some of the Imperium

It wouldn't take D3 wounds regardless of the FAQ, read your rulebook. Tank shocks aren't attacks, and superheavies only take D3 wounds from Instant Death ATTACKS.

Stormsurge anchoring was discussed in Feb-July earlier this year as well.

Best stuff?

Dominion Squads, they can carry 4 meltas and a combi weapon (more melta)
They can ignore cover once per game if you pass a Ld check. They can also Scout.

The the basic troop, they can have heavy flamer, flamer and combi weapon (flamer)
They can also get preferd enemy once a game.

This is actually a really clever idea, and not just in a REAPERS! sort of way from Mass Effect. Because the Warp and Realspace mirror each other, all the Chaos Gods contain an aspect of life that a planet requires to rise and thus perpetuate the Daemon Cycle. Nurgle gives the raw stuff of life, protozoa, flies, etc which provide the fuel to ensure life will continue. Tzneetch's magic and "change" focus then throws those natescent bits of life onto radically divergent paths to ensure biological diversity. Thorne provides/perpetuates Social and Environmental Darwinism to ensure daemon-viable species survive, with Tau a noticeable exception. Finally Slaanesh provides aspirations and goals to cultures, pushing them to become better and explore sensation and the universe, eventually delving into the Warp where Daemons then emerge and the entire cycle begins again with different names or focuses for the Chaos entities. Eh, just a fun thought exercise.
