Rolled 9 (1d26)

Scanon and Breadguy are in their heaven, all is sad in the General Edition

AP modifyers Sub-Edition

Strange non-Knight-head items were released (as well as Children of Sicarus and Sins of the Father), the Filiketos is being worked on, terminator loadouts are discussed but anon isn't afflicted by the Nails you're thinking of, anon's list is 100 Custards that will cover all your bases.

All of that and more in the previous thread >>52330509

Understandable due to the sad way psychic powers are handled.

I am interested in which legions are well designed but still retain their unique character.

Rules wise I really like the whole Istvan legions crew, most of their rules do not clutter up everything but manage to impair a lot of character.

Well...World Eaters do seem to need a bit of work due to all the extra stuff one seems to have to slap on them...most of it being traitor-ish.

I mean let's be honest with ourselves, the second you take anything bigger than a Warhound the entire game goes wonky. Anon is right not to even bother. Even if I had 5000 points of standard infantry I wouldn't even bother fighting a regular Warlord.

As for his bananas, they seem weirdly vicious? Lots of anti tank and it's an entire army that will deep strike down to the last model if desired. I could imagine cutting everything down to 5-6 models per squad and then loading them all up in Coronus Grav Carriers for some extra scary shit.

I mean it's a serious debate if you'd rather run essentially 3 more bodies per squad in an army that already suffers from a lack of bodies. It deepstriking everything there seems like little point in running many Grav Carriers, but the option to throw so many tanks out is wildly appealing.

Well I've started down the steep slope falling into 30k. I've built a small 1ksons 40k force before the new supplement/inferno and want to transition into 30k proper. Most of my group plays at the 3k points level, and while I may not have many models yet, I can potentially splurge on enough points to fill out 2.25k without upgrades, and 3k if I take some of the more expensive unit upgrades.

I have:
Ahriman
Praetor
30 bolter marines
15 unbuilt tartaros terminators
3 rhinos
2 predators (tri lascannon, but will probably kitbash the turret to a plasma gun)
Land Raider Phobos (unbuilt)
Contemptor with volkite and power fist


What else should I get? I think I'm lacking on anti-tank capability, but I want to stick more to the fun stuff than dominate the table.

Maybe one or two of the robots?

True, I was thinking of that FW email that said they could take anything, so I was imagining a pimped-out golden Stormlord with some of the eagles from the Wall of Martyrs used as decoration and for a pimp Dozer Blade carrying all the squishy spearmen into Assault Transport range. I would avoid the tonk if they can't take them at 10, because running in with only 50-ish bodies at that point level is a little suicidal, and they can deepstrike.
I think Custodes get weaker as the points increase and more counters to them come online, until they fill their entire Force Org and take a small allied detatchment to reach 13K and drop the immortal Titan of all-destroying. Even then, if they don't take T1 they can expect to lose most of the half army they deployed to concentratred fire.

Honestly one of the best things I've seen that can be done with them is giving them Questoris Knight allies for plenty of heavy anti-tank abilities. I have 4 Knights at 1750 total and even then I realize that gives them a substantial shot at survivability. Lore shows them with Stormbirds and Thunderhawks, so I don't think anyone would have a problem with a Custodes player taking one for extra punch with some assault.

I would definitely take a trio of Turbo Laser Thunderhawks if possible to really help out the immediate landing and assault ramp perks.

Other than that, invest in fortifications and plenty of field obstacles before approaching a Warlord. Even a Reaver or so it fantastic.

Can't speak for the other guy, but I'm avoiding it because a Warlord basically invalidates anything the opponent has that isn't a Titan itself. It goes from "Custodes (or Mechanicum, or Legiones, or whatever) with cool toys" to "Warlord, with some golden pointsinks to unlock it." I don't know of any way to counter it for less than it costs, other than lining up four Venators and two Cerberus under void shields.

Odd, since the Reaver, Manta and anything else is at least killable. Warlord just has so much health it goes above any regular army's capacity to realistically damage, even tailored. It's not support, it's Your Sole Dude and everyone else is worthless.

It would be years, even millenia for the webway to become human friendly enough to stop using the warp.

It's been suggested that the point of the Golden Throne isn't related to the Astronomicon, but just to control the Webway. After Magnus broke it, someone had to sit on it to keep the deamons out (either the Emperor or, temporarily, Malcador).

If Magnus hadn't broken it, he'd be sitting on it as a gatekeeper. The Webway's original protections would still be intact so daemons wouldn't (normally) be a problem, but you'd still need a gatekeeper to prevent unauthorized access straight into the throne room on Terra and things like that.

Yeah. Magnus' role was to control the Golden Throne; it acted as a psychic beacon and is what is truly considered the Astronomicon. It helped control the stability of the webway gate below the palace while simultaneously acting as a warp beacon because of the power coursing through it. Magnus being on it would be a much stronger guide point than how the Emperor is on it now in his decayed state.

Had everything worked according to the Big E's plan, Magnus would be one of his favored creations protecting humanity from the dark influences of the warp while he was continually leading humanity across the stars in what he was supposed to be the continual Crusade past the known stars we have now.

The Path of Heaven is up there. It's further into the story (a direct sequel to Scars) so it's not a book I'd recommend to someone new to the universe, but I think it might be a slightly stronger book.

Scars is good but not on that level. You can tell it was released in an episodic format. The two books do continue the story of the White Scars stormseer who was at Nikea, and turn him from a "ching chong" charicature to one of the best BL characters so far.

Wrong you two.
You neglect the fact that an ENTIRE WEBWAY NETWORK was going to be the end product, Mankind's need for warp travel greatly diminished as the superluminic communication would rely on ships carrying messages through the webway rather than psychically screaming across space.
Multiple Webway Gates mean there wouldn't be enough Magnuses out there to power and control them. That task would fall on the host planets' psychic chorus.

The Filiketos is a crazy project of mine, the centrepiece of my Genetor Mechanicum army. Gone through a few iterations, but it started when I noticed that there's a box in the Mechanicum book that lets you take an assortment of toys from FW books like Imperial Armour, and that the "Superheavy flyer" section didn't link to the restrictions box, so you can take ANY SHF as a Mech LoW.
I read the Leviathan books a week later, and decided to make a counts-as Stormbird out of a display model of a humpback whale, like a gunship variant of pic related. That fell through after a couple weeks when I couldn't get the right model to ship to the UK for less than £165.

It resurfaced as a Tau Manta counts-as after I realised that's a much easier shape to imitate and can carry my entire army easily. Long story short, there's now two Glaive turrets and three Leviathan Storm Cannon OTW from China to arm the thing, while I figure out what kits to buy to make the top deck and scrounge enough heavy bolters to make all the Burst Cannon. Going to be a fun build.

His role was to sit on the Golden Throne was to be a stabilizing pillar of humanity in propping up a new foundation for a realm which would free all humankind of the horrors of both Materium and Immaterium. The Emperor can sit on it but He has big boy things to do, and Malcador can only sit on it for 20 minutes max. That leaves the 2nd most powerful psyker in the Imperium circa 30k to do the job of being only the second most important person in all of mankind.

There, properly explained for you.

>You ought to kill everyone in the neighborhood first. You don't Xenocidal Great Crusade?
The neighborhood is the Materium. It is all of existence in the material galaxy. There is no exterminating eternity. The Emperor's wisdom would have led humanity into the webway where a new core realm would exist, without flaws or weak points like Commorragh.

>Listen, if such a thing is possible then by all means create a new one instead...BUT IS IT POSSIBLE?

The Emperor did not just magically shit a webway in the Throne Room. It was constructed in the safest place in the entire Imperium.

>Not even the Eldar themselves can do it, they're using the remains built by the Old Ones, the Webway heals itself but sometimes it just collapses, and Eldar can't do shit about it, other than not fuck things up more than they already are and use psychic powers inside it.

I doubt you've read any codices in your life. You questioned the simplest deduction that mutants who were necessary for warp travel would be eliminated in an era where warp travel was no longer required. You have no idea how a webway works. That explanation is in any Eldar codex still commercially available. You have no idea why astropaths even exist in the Imperium. That explanation is in the lore section of your rulebook (assuming you even own one). Do you even know astropaths are just legally sanctioned mutants? The Emperor has a long history of eliminating humanoid mutants which are no longer tolerated. And that explanation is filed under any Horus Heresy FW book pertaining to articles involving the Thunder Warriors.

His role would be akin to being the project manager of the highway construction project. He would be calling the shots on how its supposed to function and look and be responsible for its general functionality, under specifications from his boss (the Emperor). The other psychically attuned Primarchs who would be tasked to assist would be more like on-site directors and project coordinators. Of course, the Emperor never got that far so we don't know for sure exactly how He would have run the construction project.

>And most of all, you'd entrust that duty to a single individual? I'm not at ease with such a plan, but if it works it works.

That future would have been the Emperor's vision of 40k, where the cradle of humankind would be entirely safe in the webway.

>I mean, No one and Nothing is powering the Eldar's Webway, yet it still exists.
It's falling apart. The Immaterium is leaking into it. Thats how bad it has become. This reality necessitates the creation of new webway lanes for humanity's use.

>I was talking mainly about the Dark Eldar...but I suppose the Imperials didn't know they were there, right?
The Dark Eldar are fucking nothing in 30k, lower than Eldar corsairs. They were probably starving because of how efficiently defended and managed the Imperium was in 30k.

As a Custodes player I honestly have only three options:

A: Gunline them and realistically never use their secondary weapon.

B: Deepstrike them in to fire their Adrathic gear and expect them to die next turn.

C: Dump them in a Coronus and have them pop out to fire their Adrathic weapons before another squad charges. Will more than likely not be able to fire their normal gun profile in favor of Adrathic gear.

>What about infantry that have universal Relentless?

Terminators are designed to be stable firing platforms, other such units usually have some explanation as to why they're able to fire heavy weapons effectively. Assault weapons are usually quick firing weapons for short to medium range engagements, hosing down the opponents with a hail of bullets on the move or softening them up before a charge. A gun like that doesn't feel like something you use at heavy machine gun ranges. Especially as a handheld firearm.

>Bolterstodes are 65 points a pop, they have to be worth a damn or there's no point.

So make them cheaper or make them better with shorter ranges. Or less effective at long ranges compared to short (Salvo). Remember, they can have transports and deep strike, they're not hurting for when it comes to getting close to the enemy.

I'm against AP3 too. AP4 is nice for what is supposed to be a great bolter. Because they're bolters, not Heavy Bolters
As for Sagitarii being Heavy instead of Troops, well, they'd make more sense as Troops.

that doesn't sound right at all. shields don't do anything special against shooting, they just reroll invulns and he has a 2+ armor anyway. so, basically, he's no harder to score a wound on than an IH sarge in 2+ armor - he's just T5 2+. granted, that's still 27 S4 AP5 shots at BS4 to cause one unsaved wound, but that's a lot less than 40.

That anon's math is using (1/3)(1/3) as his save, since rerollable 3++ is a better save than single 2+. Is that legal? Well I'm not sure, but that's how he's doing his maths.

pretty sure (but not 100% sure) the rules don't let you factor in the reroll when deciding what your "best" save is. you just take the one with the lower number, and you always have to take your best save. oddly enough, though, weapons with AP2 (assuming same strength) would actually average less damage.

>>52353893
oh, right. that seems like a tremendous waste given all the other options you have, though. infiltrating him + three units sounds way harder to deal with. you save money on transports or teleporters, you don't have the inconsistency of reserve rolls and deep strike, and the opponent has one turn to deal with you or shit hits the fan

well, hoplites are the obvious choice for the haywire fuckery, but you can get similar results just using a vultarax. myrmidon destructors with graviton imploders don't need assault vehicles but they do need good transports given that they're only 18" range and can't run, so they're a good candidate.

other than that, yeah, they don't really have assault troops that don't already have jump packs, only assault characters (like scoria or a malagra) and assault MCs. the pods seem more like a way to insert very scary short range shooting units, and that's something mechanicum does have quite a few of now between hoplites, peltasts, secutors and destructors.

Yeah but you said ASSAULT transports changed the Mechanicum game.
Hoplites don't need assault transports, you don't want them in an assault against things that can fight back. Hell, not even against mere tacticals.
While Arc Peltasts and Myrmidons can also use Arvuses (that award no VPs like a Suborbital Wing does) and aren't looking for a fight anyway, even if Preferred Enemy Powerfists are scary enough.

Sorry for sort of repeating what you just said, just making sure I'm not missing anything.

>> No.52354276

>>52354144
well, I thought about it more and realized that yeah, sure, an assault transport for melee thralls would be nice and all, but they're still not averaging many unsaved wounds on the assault and still strike after most units they'd attack. they're really the only "dedicated assault unit" that really suffers for lack of an assault vehicle... but they're fodder, so who gives a fuck, right?

technically you could think of secutors as a close range MEQ/TEQ hybrid and they do have power axes (and destructors have power fists) but low number of attacks and WS3 mean they're not really "assault units" and generally get their asses kicked if marines get in combat with them. also, their shooting is their hallmark, so you generally want them to stay out of combat so they can keep doing it.

also, I forgot you could even bring an arvus lighter in a fast attack slot. so, yeah, that's a thing. sounds really scary to put your elite shooting unit in a tin can with... not even wings, but it's an option.

no experience with them, but radium carbines in transports, as long as you're giving them preferred enemy via an axiarch, sound really, really good. a full strength squad using hazard protocols and PE averages 11.34 unsaved wounds against marines. that's really, really good for 11ppm models, particularly when you take the kyropatris buffs into question. to be honest I think two squads of peltasts and one squad of hoplites is the better matrix of ruin build (since you have to take two squads of thallax for ordo reductor). you could take a fourth unit of secutarii in a non-reductor detachment but then you lose MTC in ruins (i.e., nearly all terrain that most people use) and your Triaros aren't scoring in enemy deployment anymore.

unfortunately galvanic casters kind of stink unless you're footslogging and need the extra range of hammershot, the barrage-without-downsides blind fire thing or the shrouding buff... since generally in a Triaros you're gonna be able to just roll up in range and light up your targets, and in that case radium carbines are way the fuck better than shrapnel rounds. also, hammershot is generally just not worth the points; radium carbines average the exact same unsaved wounds per turn vs MEQ, and that's only if they don't get a cover save. against higher toughness targets can radium carbines actually do damage, and hammershot... doesn't. really, the only advantage is range, and then you end up doing less damage because usually targets at longer range are far more likely to have cover than someone at medium range - and, again, you have one of the best transports in the game, so that shouldn't be an issue anyway.

i'm like 90% sure that a knight doesn't count as a "titan" for the purposes of their faction rules, like getting to reroll morale/FNP near titans or only being compulsory troops if you have a titan, otherwise taking a single knight would also be really good.

is an Acastus Knight Porphyrion too much to bring a 2000 point Ordo Reductor list up to 2500? I wouldn't be able to upgrade the nipple guns to lascannons, but it's so strong as it is that it hardly needs it. 4 TL BS5 S10 AP2 pie plates plus either a 7" S6 blast or two S8 AP2 anti-air (and convenient anti-air is always nice) on a platform that's basically a Warhound but not quite but also better seems... way too good for 2/3 the cost of a Warhound. it even gets the Blessed Autosimulcra for free just because it's in a Mechanicum detachment and wouldn't have a Household Rank... and with 8HP there's a decent chance it would actually be relevant.

Rotor wounds: 17.28
Volkite wounds: 12.96

Unsaved rotor wounds: 5.761
Unsaved volkite wounds: 4.321

Volkite triggers for another 4ish hits

Final rotor wounds: 5.761 unsaved wounds
Final volkite wounds: ~5.432 unsaved wounds (mathed 4 hits not 4.321)

That's kind of what I was wondering. 2000 is technically the bare minimum for a LoW, but since HH barely even works for Legion lists at 2000 points throwing a LoW in there just makes it a mess. 2500 seems like the practical minimum for taking a LoW and actually having a real game. it's more that the Porphyrion is just so damn good for its points - like, seriously, why would you ever take a Warhound anymore - that it seems like it might be a little much in an already very efficient Ordo Reductor army.
