Still trying to decide what legion to start. It's going to come down to doing a couple of test models and seeing which I prefer/which I can better do justice, but I'd want to build them in different marks: if I do Iron Hands I'd want to do them in Mk III; if I do Blood Angels I'd want to do them in Mk IV. So I can't just grab a single box to do test models, and buying two boxes will leave some left over, so trying to work out the cheapest way to do this, and generally being a procrastinating little shit as a result.

Looking to start building a Dangel Army capitalising on their Close Combat rules, mostly by equipping them with as many swords as possible and using special ammo to debuff WS5 enemies. I'm aware this isn't the best tactic, but man I love me some medieval knights.

Question is: what do you guys reckon would be the best cc unit to drop my Praetor in?

>> No.52043887

Force yourself into a painting routine and stick with it, don't stop until everything is done. Become familiar how much you can paint in a specific time (a day, a week etc.) and structure your painting schedule.

>> No.52043895

Nope, you can do just fine without Reductor arty in a mechanized list, even if it is nice to have about. Use the Reductor variant anyway, buffs still excellent, take an Archimandrite, Secutarii Axiarch and a Magos Reductor. Use the Titan Guard as your line troops after 2 comp Thallax, units of 20 Peltasts in Triaros or 12 Hoplites in an Arvus. Then add some Myrmidon Destructors in a Macrocarid, which can be Decima's DT if loyalist, and a battery or two of Krios Venators, plus maybe some Vulturax or Lightnings, then add whatever. Bingo, list that can do most things, even if it might struggle slightly against Custodes due to lack of S10. Avoid vanilla Krioae and the Karacnaros as a rule, all other Mechanicum vehicles are shiny as hell.

People always obsess over killing high T monstrous creatures when dealing with Mechanicum, too, so you'll have some of the element of surprise for a while.

to get all those HoWs, you'll need that every model is in bse contact with the enemy at Initiative 10. 20 models will hardly manage to do that, unless you spread them well (which might make you pass on terrain and lose 2" to charge speed.

Good point. Then maybe I should just run 1 squad of 10? 20 HoW attacks for half the cost! Or is it too gimmicky and situational?

>> No.52044081

One issue I can see is you need to get into base-to-base contact to make a HOW hit, which may be tricky with 20. There's probably a magic number that means you're not wasting points on extraneous models, but have enough dudes to absorb casualties/get plenty of HOW hits, but damned if I know what it is.

sergant with poweraxe, meltabomb, and artificer armour, but that's it. Their job is to assault shooty units, and just survive untill the Lernaean can charge in if they get assaulted by some nasty melee unit ... and 57 melee attacks is usually enough already to kill ten dudes with missile launchers.

You can get the Betrayal at Calth Chaplain character for pretty cheap on eBay. But I suppose that’s not quite the same as a normal dude, and the BoP equivalents aren’t generic enough to be useful. Honestly, I’d just get the cheapest marines you can – even if that means Mk VII snap-fit from a starter box or paint set. Don’t count on using them in your army, but they’ll serve well enough to know if you like painting black or red.

Both colors are hard to add depth to. For IH I like the idea of using a very dark metallic gray and washing with purple. Then highlight with a warm tone. For BA, highlight with Tau Light Ochre (I think that’s Vomit Brown’s replacement). But I’m still not sure what the best wash/shade is for red.

AFAIK the thing 40k Gilly totally lacks that he has in 30k is IWND.

Just because his stats and rules are OP doesn't mean wanting him to do fluffy things is "WAAC".

I'd say outfitting your Medusans with Volkites is worth it, but not as much of a force-multiplier if you put the squad above 10 men.

You're right about the Immortals being good. I've never given them thought before, but in comparison to the Imperial Fists Phalanx Warders, I think it's clear the Immortals are a lot better, as they are good at more purposes than the Warders, AND good at what the Warders specialise at (objective-holding nuisances).

Medusans start with 5++ FNP and the IH -1 Toughness, while IF have to take a rite of war and pay ~50 points for an apothecary to get the same benefits (with the possibility for an augury scanner though), and they start off more expensive.
The other thing is that the upgrades for the Phalanx Warders seem to reward you for making them blobby, but they cost 25% more per extra man than the Immortals do (15 points per man versus 12), and their all-round upgrade (the Power Axe) costs twice as much as the Volkite Charger for the Medusas, even though the Axe represents losing basically all of the bonus the PWs get, since you won't be charged if you put too many axes in there.

So, let's compare making a 10-man assault-based squad with 5+ FNP for both squads, upgraded with their unit-specific wargear:
>Medusans: 250 base cost + 40 for 8 Volkite Chargers, +30 for two meltaguns, + 35 for sergeant armour, PW and melta bombs = 355
>Warders: 255 base cost + 80 for 8 power axes + 30 for two meltaguns + 25 for sergeant armour and melta bombs + 55 for AA apothecary = 445

There was some Cthonian Imperial Army dudes there, about 9000. Before the actual battle, about 5000 Sons of Horus showed up to Russ' contingent of the Host, and lent him some Legio Mortis titans as well as access to the muntions of the Forge World of Beta-Garmon, where he loaded up on regular shooty, and also a fuckton of Phosphex and Exterminatus-class Mechanicum bullshit weapons, and themselves helped out in the assault.

Not sure whether there's anything else, but Legio Mortis takes a surprise assault from the Zhao-Arkkad Legio Xestiobax and loses a bunch of Titans before they wipe the enemy out.

Truth be told, axes on the Phalanx are basically a no-go. And while axes are a bigger change than volkite, I still think Warders are overpriced Breachers with overpriced upgrades and a situational bonus, since they cost 65 points more than basic breachers for just the special rule that makes them harder to charge, while Medusans get the basic effects of an apothecary (that can't be removed) for 60 points (the cost of a pimped out apothecary), and cost 20% per less per extra man than a Phalanx Warder.

So whenever you can take Immortals instead of Breachers it's basically a straight upgrade, whereas phalanx warders are pricy enough not to be. Mad jelly.

So in my view, the two usable methods for Phalanx Warders are:
>MSU spam where you put two axes in and sit them on objectives (but in Stone Gauntlet you have to buy two basic breacher units anyway so they lose their specialness)
>The more effective strategy of a (preferably deep-striking) blob of 20 which has an apothecary, a handful of axes, and 4 plasma guns, whereupon you kite the enemy
Both of these are expensive and situational though, whereas the Medusan Immortals are good for:
>MSU spam where you camp them with grav guns
>MSU spam where you take them as more survivable Volkite support squads who can charge home and hit above their weight in melee thanks to the shield
>A big blob where you do a variant of the above and/or the Phalanx blob strategy (they aren't as specialised for this as the phalanx, but they cost 30 points less to blob up)

TLDR: Medusans are good for 5++ and Volkite spam, Phalanx Warders are overpriced and only good for plasma annoyance.
If you planned on using Medusans at all, I'm 75% confident you should give them the Volkites.

>> No.52047290

>Warders are overpriced Breachers
And Breachers are also overpriced Breachers.

>> No.52047321

The issue with equipping Warders with as much axes as you can is that the enemy will in all likelihood just try to avoid them. You want them assaulted for +1WS and +1T (which Immortals in melee don't get) while the enemy unit gets no bonuses.
So you have to try and hit that sweet spot where they fuck with the enemy at range, but also have enough punch to take them out in melee. And the Axe price should be toned down to 5 points, it gets horribly expensive as it is, as should be base cost.

On the other hand, Immortals get no melee buffs at all, but that's okay as they rely on their superior armour to make it to the enemy in numbers.

>I still think Warders are overpriced Breachers with overpriced upgrades
Same, what with UM Breachers getting power swords for 5pts/piece.

Yeah, my build (in my mind, because I'm still waiting for plastic breachers for Stone Gauntlet) is 2 Axes, and 2 Plasma. Two S5 AP2 hits aren't worth 10 points though, particularly when as you pointed out, for half the cost the Ultramarines can get 4 S4 AP3 hits with their basic breachers on the charge, in a scenario where they'll be choosing who to hit them with. Axes might actually be near-useless on the Phalanx Warders because you'll usually be charged by Terminators, who have a 50 or 33% chance of saving against each attack by the warder, assuming it hits and wounds to begin with.

I said 75% convinced because if you're strictly min-maxing, bolters and bolt pistols aren't that much worse, but I think you'll find them worth it with the Volkite.

>And Breachers are also overpriced Breachers.

That might make them more useful as axe-wielders, but it's not enough when axes cost 10 points on top of the unit's existing overpricing, and if the bonus is purely reactive while on the defensive against charges.

Isn't Mk III just up-armored Mk II?

Do we think plastic breachers are a possibility? I suppose they might be... rumors said they had a Phall boxed game ready, and it's common for them to sit on boxed sets for a while until if it fits their release schedule. It made sense to release basic Mk IV+Cataphractii and Mk III+Tartaros boxes first. This fall/winter, they could either release a new armor mark (II, V, or VI) or start giving us breachers or assault marines. (Or best of all, Mk II plus breacher parts - but if I want it then it won't come true).

>> No.52048647

>Isn't Mk III just up-armored Mk II?

Then it wouldn't count as a whole new mark anymore than MkIV with a chest plate would. MkIII is based on the MkII, but they did other modifications to it as well ("highly modified" is a term I've seen used) to make it more suitable for void combat as well. The rear armour is reduced to even out the weight.

I mean, technically MkVI and VII are quite close to each other, the MkVII being the final result of the R&D that started with the MkVI, but I wouldn't call MkVII just a better MkVI.

But they are. The Imperial Guard's High Gothic name is Astra Militarum...but the reader/narrator characters mostly speak Low Gothic (like how "Romans" did), so they all say "Imperial Guard".

I mean, you do know that TECHMARINE is FRATER ASTROTECHNICUS in High Gothic, right?

The same happens with Fenrisian. Only fucking Fenris speaks Fenrisian, which is why all the Imperium calls them the Space Wolves based on the Fang, but they call themselves Vlka Fenryka based on the Aett.

Not to mention almost all written 30k/40k media is translated to pseudo-latinized english; Gothic sounds nothing like that after 27000+ years of change and planetary migration.

>I bet you call the Praetoria Mortalis "the Death Guard".

Imperial Fleet is the space ship equivalent to the Departmento Munitorum. The Navy is under it (same way Guard is under the Munitorum). Navy has a high gothic name (Aeronautica Imperialis) but the Fleet doesn't. Neither does the Inquisition and I'm sure there's one or two other departments of the Imperial hierarchy that lack high gothic names.

>I'd go with Ignis Dracorum

The og question was their names in High Gothic, not latin, before the google translate gets completely out of hand. Also latin is one of those languages where shit changes based on contextual use.

There's an Aussie group who do Epic models. I think it's them.

>> No.52054880

Here is the wording:

Legiones Astartes: Units with this special rule may always attempt to Regroup regardless of casualties.
Bestial Savagery: Models with this special rule gain a + 1 WS bonus on any turn in which they have successfully charged. Additionally, they gain the Counter-attack special rule, and if any unit with this special rule has won combat on any turn in which they have charged or counter-charged, they must make a Sweeping Advance if they are able to.
Hunter's Gait: Infantry models with this special rule add 1" to their Run and Consolidation distances so long as they are not equipped with jump packs or Terminator armor of any kind.
Preternatural Senses: Models with this special rule may ignore the effects of Night Fighting. Re-roll the dice to determine which table edge they arrive from when outflanking, and infiltrating models may not be set up within 18" of them regardless of line of sight.

Ok so I play 30k Iron Warriors and space wolves. The wording on these rules seem pretty simple but after looking through all the unit entries none of the fucking models have Bestial Savagery. I was like wot... So when I googled it, people talk about it like every model in the Space wolf selection gets all these rules but my friend was like there is no way they get all that shit. But it wouldn't make sense if no one has a special rule that has been written out.
