Apparently there aren't really rules for having Space marines. Scouts are the marine force, and full-fledged marines are the one-mission specialists for them.

>> No.52510504

Deathwatch works better as an allied army, sort of elite, specialized marines to pair up with a full marine army or guard regiment.

Grey Knights are similar, being elite marines, though are kind of overpriced and less focused on what they want to do.

Necrons are quite solid and easy to play, paint, and learn.

Cool. Watched a batrep or two, necron seems to be heavily invested into shooting. After the start collecting set (12 warriors, 1 overlord, 1 triarch stalker, 1 scarab swarm), what should I be looking at getting? Thinking of a few simple games first to get a feel of w40k rules.

The Ark Phalanx box might be a decent addition, another box of warriors and a transport for them as well. I would suggest sticking with that until you get a better feel for how they play and how the game works, then look over your options.

I'd recommend more, but I only know this second hand from my friend's crons.

I'm actually hoping to sell all my chaos daemons because I just don't like them anymore, which I can then turn into more stuff that I need I suppose.

>> No.52510641

That's understandable. For me, I love having a lot of different armies. I've got at least 1000 points wrapped up in 4 or 5 by now. But right now I'm just stuck on Chaos marines. I wouldn't be surprised if I've got 3000 points with all the crap I've just accumulated.

My main army is Sisters, so getting shit for that is a pain, though I'm sitting on a out 2000pts because I've been playing them for like 10 years now. Then, I have CSM, Tzeentch daemons with some 'letters, and a pile of dark eldar that I could probably make into a 1500 if I stretch it a little. The daemons I can do about 2000 points, too. Even if I just dump them for like 200-300, I'd be happy.

>> No.52510669

How many points does Decurion RP save you in a game? Your entire army divided by 50%.

How many points do all those Wraiths save you by simple virtue of being extremely undercosted, even BEFORE their toughness boost and points drop from their newest codex? More than a couple free Rhinos will provide.

>> No.52510681

Yeah. I've got a BaC box that I have sitting around to make into a loyalist force so I can actually ally with something there, and it's taking a lot of willpower to resist just making another 30 so Chaos marines.

>Your entire army divided by 50%.

Getting 4+ feel no pain when you already had 5+ feel no pain army-wide is not a 50% boost in survivability. That sort of boost is what you guys can get just by calling your guys Iron Hands.

There is no conceivable way a squad of wraiths is undercosted by several hundred points. They're a great assault unit, fast, durable, etc. but if a Necron player invests in all of those while you park Obsec Razorbacks on every objective, you'll pull ahead in the end.

>I rolled on the IW traits and reinforced the Autocannon squad's cover to 3+

>Rapier evaporated 4 cultists and penned Dinobot, saved by 5++, that was about as good as it got as those two spent the rest of the game impotently flailing at each other due to poor dice rolls
>Warpsmith and Dread ran straight at the Cultists ready to unleash a shitload of templates on the Cultists before turning their anti-tank toys on the Dinobot. But, they rolled a 1 for Run distance, leaving them juuust out of template range next turn. Hellturkey arrived Turn 2 and took out the dread with a single Vector Strike, then erased half the Autocannon squad with its Baleflamer. Their fancy 3+ cover was completely useless since they didn't take fire from anything but the Turkey the entire game.
>Despite this, Autocannon marine capped three cultists and a Noise Marine before running out of targets and spending the last turns trying to hit the Turkey
>Warpsmith managed to Curse the Forgefiend (fucker rolled 3 Gets Hot but saved them all) before getting charged by the Cultists, and spent most of the game them chopping up (slaying their champion and rolling +1 Initiative... when he has a Power Axe, DERP) but was readying a meltagun shot into the Immobilized Dinobot's side for Turn 5 when my opponent conceded.

And Necrons don't have Chapter tactics or ATSKNF. It's almost like a lot of armies have army wide special rules or something.

>> No.52510877


The only good BC builds use pods and rhinos, so that's 35 x 6, which is only 11% of 1850. RBs are complete shit. You have to pay for turret upgrades, they are only a TLHB stock, and have no hatch to fire grav out of. HS slots should be Centurions and FA slots should be bikes, so spamming even more transports is irrelevant. Transports also don't kill anything, and Rhinos have never been considered good other than due to their low cost, so lowering an already low cost to 0 is barely worth crying about.

Take away all the other OP shit marines have and leave them Battle Company and the army is complete trash. Go ahead and fucking try it if you don't believe me. Play a Battle Company with no cheesy units or grav and see how amazing those free transports are compared to innate xenos firepower such as Necron gauss, Tau everything, and Eldar everything.

Literally no competitive vanilla lists use RBs.

>> No.52510887

>Chapter tactics
>shit Daemons Eldar and Tau don't have yet are still doing better than marines

>Meanwhile, my Panzer IV chassis tanks took their heritage to heart and fucking blitzkrieg'd the right flank, erasing the Rhino, Chosen and Lord with sustained plasma fire, netting me First Blood and Slay the Warlord, before killing all but one of his Noise Marines and getting within capture distance of his Objective as well as having units with 3" of his board edge.
>He conceded when it became clear next turn I'd wipe out the last Noise Marine giving me uncontested control of his Objective, and the Warpsmith would likely destroy the Dinobot, leaving him with only the Turkey.

Things I learned:
-Holy shit Helldrakes are insane. Flyers in general are insane but a Flyer with a 5++ and It Will Not Die is going to be fucking hard to put down, even with dedicated AAA.
-My list is minimally viable, the units work well with each other and anything lacking serious anti-tank is going to struggle against that much armour, even if it's mostly only AV11
-What's not to like about a 72" range Vindicator? The Dice Gods and their sense of humour.
-Everyone liked the PzIV's, the German theme overall and my conversions, which was awesome.

Necrons I think are cool too but I'm not deadset on them. I'll probably need something to push forward and engage while the rip snipes

no one plays unbound, you'll barely find games and formations can be better than unbound
By units you think are cool, are you looking only at tau or at any units at all, since farsight enclaves gives you crisis suits are troops choices, eliminating the boring infantry that plagues normal tau.

So, I think I had one of the most one sided games I have ever played today. It was my Sisters vs a Dangle cad, and for shits and giggles I took a Vestigial Task Force for the first time (spoilers: it was worthless) with pic related. We did Maelstrom of war and rolled escalation. The final score was 12-3.

I had an early lead and was sitting on 6 points to his 2, but he had a potential swing in his favor. If he cast an interromancy power and killed my warlord in a challenge, he could potentially take the lead (d3 for challenge, 1 for WL, 1 for power). He dumps all 6 of his dice into making my Dominions snap shoot and only managed one success, which I manage to negate with adamantium will.

Next, his flier finally arrived and unloads into my command squad, which takes out 3 sisters, then his command squad kills one more and puts a wound on the canoness. He assaults, challenges, and his goons kill my last dude. In the challenge, we're both hitting on 4s and wounding on 2s with a 4++ save, but he has 4+1 attacks to my 3. We each wound once and he fails to kill me.

My turn. I roll my objectives and get 15 and 16. Then first is activate AoF for 1pt, 3 for d3 pts, or 5 for 3+d3 pts. I only had 4 AoF left, so do I could get a d3 out of it. The second, is if a faithful character dies, I get a point, but if it's a character with Martyrdom, I get a d3. Low and behold, I activate my 3 faith powers, failing my canoness on an 11 of all things, and then proceed to put another wound into his character and take one in return. I roll a 4 and 5 for my 2d3 and snag 5 for my canoness dieing, but he only gets 1 for my warlord because he didn't get the kill on his turn.

The game ends, I get line breaker because Dominions, and the final score is 12-3.

Holy fuck.

Aaaaand this is exactly why cover being a To Hit modifier is a stupid idea.

>> No.52512012

Technically they've gotten their rules wrong.

A shoota has a +1 modifier within 12". It would cancel out the cover modifier, meaning the ork needs 5's to hit someone at that range/in partial cover.

Also, simply running makes you harder to target. An ork running into partial cover is at -2 to hit, and an ork is considerably more dangerous in melee than most other troops in this game.

you're looking at the old Necromunda rules, which are based on and largely compatible with the RT/2E 40k rules, having things like long/short range (of which the modern game only retains vestigial traces such as Melta and Rapid Fire, because it's a fucking worthless system that bogs down games), To Hit Modifiers, To Wound Modifiers and Save Modifiers (which implies that some units save on more than one D6 to represent ultra-tough units), Move as a profile entry and so on and so forth

the reason that all of those things died out in 40k is that they're unnecessarily slow and overcomplicated, even in a skirmish game as 40k was when it started out

this is not a preview of 8E, which will be more or less 7E, which is more or less 5E, which is the fifth refinement of the previous four editions

nor are you likely to see it go the other way and become more AoS like because AoS replaces a cumbersome system of innately bloated rank-and-file armies with a more friendly skirmish system involving big beautiful models, with no need to paint 400 skaven just to qualify for a fucking bell on a cart and fight a 1000 point game against fourteen guys on horseback, a steam tank and some cannons

and just to be ultra fucking clear

even in 2E if you wanted a shooty Ork army you went gretchin and just overwhelmed your enemy with weight of fire, even at long range

its like someone saying that guard players should stop complaining when you can ally in a space marine grav-star and make your army better.

if your answer to playing an army is to ally in a better army then your army is broken, no matter what that nid player thinks.

ANYONE can ally in a better army, the point is that you shouldn't fucking have to, and that your armies should be able to stand on their own.

AND I NEVER SAID THAT TYRANIDS WERE A GOOD ARMY. they are mono-build to the extreme, but when some little bitch complains about a deldar player bitching about being a shit army then that bitch is nothing more or less than a little bitch.

Looking for some advice on this

The kataphrons are each joined by one dominus, one being joined by warlord Cawl to be repaired. The dominus both have wargear, one of which allows the unit they're in to get tank hunter, skyfire, or monster hunter each turn and the other allowing Kataphron units within 12" to instantly use any protocol after initially using one. Both kataphron units are joined by ML2 divination psykers.
Everything else in the list is pretty self explanatory, now that Cawl was released it's legal to get a CAD of rangers for some Obsec while having the boon of vanguard in a maniple. I had planned on including peltasts but I can't find room really. Also there are apparently nerfs coming through the pipeline for them which is understandable.

But with no dedicated assault transports you're left walking.

Boltersisters aren't terrible if you want the null aura. But bolters are underwhelming.

Flamersisters are the most expensive, but synergizes best with Rhinos imo, but I find 5+ flamers are usual overkill.
