Tervigons are not worth it for 8th. They would be worth it if:

-You could choose between allocating towards new Termagant units (minimum 10 models), or replenishing lost Termagants (restoring Devgants).
-Instant Death was just "d3 extra wounds"
-They were ML 2/automatically got a choice of Catalyst or Onslaught. (Could be a WC battery if nothing else).
-Non-flyrant Thorax Weapons had Torrent (aka, Torrent Haywire).

As is, nope. They worked in some 5e builds, but that was before Psykerhammer, and when Hive Guard were BS 4.

It sucks against terminators (see above, but with a further 33% chance that the wound you do make won't kill the terminator, and a better save)

This anon is right. We're getting the FW rules for it. Just put one together. Annihilator Russ is great fun.

Don't forget other russ variants. I suspect this is what we will see this edition in rule-set if they are releasing ALL of FW

General Purpose / Hard Hitting
> Battle Cannon - this we know
> Exterminator Twin Autocannon - know what to expect

Anti Infantry
> Eradicator - Curious
> Punisher - We know what to expect kind of
> Conqueror - lol who uses them???

Anti Vehicle / Big Shit
> Vanquisher - probably 2D6 BC with better AP and special rules
> Annihilator Twin Las - we know what to expect here
> Destroyer - Probably 1 shot with like 3D6 damage

Jack of All Trades
> Demolisher - expect it to be 2D6 BC with better wounds, should be lethal as fuck
> Thunderer - Above
> Executioner - Plasma spam is plasma spam, now damage of D3 probably
I suspect the main build for the LR will become:
>Hull LC
>HBolter sponsons
>Gun of choice for purpose

How I will be running my LR...

>Hull flamer
>Sponson flamer
>Punisher or Demolisher

I'll let my lascannon teams kill big shit. My flammen-russ will storm the table in a whirlwind of wounds. 3 heavy flamers on a leman russ in this edition, independently targeting what-ever, while main guns do their thing.

Javelins are going to be fucking amazing. They were already okay-ish in 7th ed, especially for harassing tanks from outflank. But literally doubling the number of missiles they get is going to make them just god-tier.

The cadian regiments are all mixed, the cadian regiments are alsi the most common. The former because idk, the latter because GW is lazy and will only shelf cadians.

You should be able to find at least some headswaps no problem. Cadians wear baggy enough fatigues to not need a full body swap and if you seriously need a modeled female body then there are plenty of third-party minis that look close enough while being cheaper than GW could offer you.

Well the next advice is that you do the following
> Paint on palette

Other than that, it's just pure practice on getting the ratios right. Alternatively you can just get a wet palette, and allow it to automagically thin your paints for you. It costs like 3$ to make a wet palette that will last forever.

Wax paper isn't right, water can't seep through it so it doesn't thin your paints or keep them fully wet.

My phone just up and fucking died permanently yesterday, otherwise I would show pictures of my wet palette, but here's the gist of it:

> Buy a small-ish tupperware bin.
> Paper Towels
> Parchment Paper(NOT WAX PAPER.)
All comes to roughly 3$

> Put a paper towel in the tupperware bin
> put water in until there is a 1/4 inch thick flow on top of the towel.
> Put parchment on top of it.
> Add paint.
> Go ahead and use it. Just replace the parchment after every day of painting.

To thin your paints down, merely spread them across the palette further than you would normally. The wider you spread the paint, the more water it sucks up from underneath the parchment. Doing this lets you extremely precisely control the amount of water in your paint.

It also keeps your paint wet for longer. A freshly made palette can keep paint wet for up to 10 hours.

Not very. All the attached weapons on the wyches have 2x1mm magnets in them and the torso drilled with a 5/32 bit, which is perfectly snug. Just be careful, though because the arm itself isn't much wider than the magnet, but you should have more than enough depth to drill.

I use a pin vise and a $7 pack of dremel bits from Walmart, and I've regretted nothing so far. The pack goes as thin as 1/32 I think and goes up from there.

If that didn't come with a bit, I'd say you were way overpaying, but I might say that anyway. I get mine for ~$10 per 200 magnets, and info felt like waiting a month, I could get them for under $2 from china. This is on ebay, mind you.

Also, below reminded me: I usually use the back of my exact I knife to press it into place because it's hard and flat. However, I get the polarity right by using the magnetized torso to set the arm magnet.

For your first model, drill a hole in the torso and set your magnet. The polarity doesn't matter. Then, put another magnet on that magnet, drill a hole in your arm piece, and set the magnet into place using the torso (I use my knife end to make sure the magnet is flush). Now, you shouldn't ever have to worry about polarity. Doing a torso? Use an arm. Doing an arm? Use a torso. I did a whole skew of Calth Marines this way, too, and it was wonderful. Everything Pic related is magnetized.


You're not wrong, though assembly is worse. My raider made me bleed. The worst is removing sprue chunks because of how small everything is, but mold lines are arguably worse because they have a tendency to run straight through all the spikes.

>> No.53175421

Nah even for weapons, 3d printing is shit. It has a looking way to go before it's usable.

That said, the day that an affordable home 3d printer that makes good models is released, geedubs is going to seriously have to think about their business model.

If I ever had to set a weird magnet that needed an extension, I just used more magnets to make sure the polarity is right, use my knife to separate the end magnet, and then I press it in that way, or at least enough so I can apply real pressure.

All the ones in my area are badly placed, away from transports or in places they don't belong in. One is literally in a the middle of a bus/tramway deadspot; The other is in the party/nightlife quarter of town, so every bar around is overpriced drinks and crappy by day or overcrowded by night.
On top of that add a staff that is either just as good as LGSs or as bas as you'd expect corporate shop keepers to be. Also the usual: They just sell Gdubs, they only accept Gdubs. They also act like you've got no choice but to go there to play and make no effort to keep their clientele.

Against that your LGSs have to compete against each other, pushing them to offer better service, staff prices, you name it. Basically when you step in a LGS you know what to expect. When you step in a dubs you have no idea. And if somehow your LGS sucks and is still somehow in business, you can just go next door.

Strike first when charging would have been enough, ws as a static value? Why? Now it doesn't matter how good your character is skilled, he'll be hit as easily as anyone else, wound anything on 6+?

The more I've thought on it, the more I think it works out. With old style blasts, you pretty much had a 1 in 3 chance of it actually hitting where you wanted. Translated to now, the ideal is 5-6 shots.

Granted, I only think that's really a big improvement if it's also BS 4, but in such cases you could expect those 3-4 hits to turn into a similar number of wounds or more depending on the target. Dealing 3-4 wounds on a proper shot isn't bad and isn't too unlikely either.

Rolling the average on the d6 and getting a 3 or a 4 is closer to the blast scattering and only catching one or two models.

It feels like the odds overall have increased for everything except shooting at tightly packed squads or really big blobs. The problem is that a couple low rolls at key points will screw you over.

Ideally, the Leman Russ having some sort of rule that gives it better accuracy, even if it's only when above half health, will do wonders for making this more consistent

Wait, do you think they are or aren't going to kill 40k?

With most melee being charging and withdrawing, hitting first on charge largely renders I unncessary bookkeeping.

WS static means that higher WS actually make a difference. It used to be that anything beyond middling was a waste, as it was compared mostly to the WS2 of most units.

Wounding on a 6+ is fine given that armor saves are actually important now and the tank will have double-digit wounds. People have run the math, basic firearms will require absolutely ludicrous numbers of shots to down a tank.

Stop whining, we're fine.

Wouldn't this still run into the problem that the majority of units are not trained in melee, and thus are WS 2 or WS 3, meaning that bringing high WS is fairly pointless? It'd be like playing where 90% of targets were T2 or 3; it's kind of a waste to bring S9. Static WS is just simpler, easier to balance around, and has clear parallels with shooting.

So I have a theory on the NuMarines. It might be easier on GWs logistically to replace all the old models with a single kit. 10 Marines in a box with bolters and sergeant upgrade. Then the stores or websites can sell specific kits. You want missile devs? Buy the missile dev kit for a few bucks. Assault marines? Assault kit with jump packs and other accessories. Similar to how you buy bodies and weapons separately for many HH models on FW's site.

This would not only reduce wasted parts (the hundreds of unused heavy bolters from tactical kits), but would allow for easier/cheaper kitbashing.

I think it's a distinct possibility that they could do this instead of trying to bring the whole range up to date with new boxes.

Or potentially you're right and the truescale dudes will take up the entire sprue, in which case sure.

>> No.53176804

Technically, sure, I mean they'd have to make whole new molds for the entire army range rather than just one unit, which would be a whole issue, but putting that aside they'd be saving like less than ten cents and we'd probably not see any of it.

>> No.53176805

Not really. They would have to make a separate mold for each individual upgrade sprue with the specific heavy weapons on it.

Compare that to them making one sprue with one of each weapon. You want Lascannon Devs? Buy 4 boxes.

>> No.53176806

You mean gachapon? It is. If they're nice enough they'll pack the whole set into 1 full unseal box. But it's still space marine here. Maybe if it is "other faction" heroes it would be worthwhile to collect.

>You can't parry a bullet and for some guns like a lasgun it is much easier to hit them as it has no recoil and is the speed of light.

And it's also easier to shoot a titan than a human target. Why doesn't the game represent that then?

Because BS is simplified more than it could be. WS being equally simplified is fine.

Hence higher profits. For example, let's say a box of current marines costs $10 to make, whether it's a tactical squad, dev squad, or assault squad. They sell it at $20. Now numarines are introduced. The base kit also costs $10 to make and is also sold at $20. However, if you want to kit them out as assmarines or devs you will have to buy the corresponding upgrade kit, which let's say costs $5 to make but is sold at $10.

Now if you want an numarine assault squad you will have to pay $30 instead of $20, and GW turns a profit of $15 instead of $10, under the guise of "only pay for the bits you need".

That's probably pretty close to what it might be. Only trouble is there has to be a spot between them and the Dreadnought for things like the Rhino.

I still feel like T6 is the lowest basically any vehicle should go though, since not even those were that vulnerable to Heavy Bolters.

I'm predicting Rhinos as either T 6 with a 3+ or T 7 with a 4+, and then any AV 10 vehicles to be T 6 4+ to have that progression there.

Only thing I could see being lower toughness would be Sentinels and Killa kans to line up with Crisis suits being flimsy as hell, relatively speaking.

>> No.53176906

As much as I would like to say absolutely yes or no we unfortunate have very little information outside of a picture or two and a short fluff video explaining their existence. The NuMarines may just be a single kit (most likely) or they could replace the entire range (very unlikely).

My suggestion, if you haven't already purchased models yet, is wait another two or three weeks to see what GWs reveals. If you have bought some models then go ahead and do as thou wilt.

I play CSM and have no intention of replacing my wee men with these new carrion worshipers despite the "true scale" aspect. I expect it's the same for many players on the loyalist side.

I could see Armour 10 Open Topped as T5.

I'd actually be very interested in seeing them play about with different setups for stats. Like they could make Necron stuff with that technobabble shielding have very low wounds but high toughness and save. So you'll almost never hurt it but if something does luck through it will do some serious damage.

While on the other hand orks could be low toughness and saves but tonnes of wounds. Heavy bolters take chunks out of ork vehicles pretty often but there is that much pointless gubbins and extra metal that it takes a while for it to matter.

I tried something similar for a few of my marines. I think I used Screamer pink for the main armor plates and Lothern blue for the trim. I like the way it turned out, since the pink there is a bit more subdued compared to the blue.

It's hard to make a color scheme that's all bright colors though. If you're set on it, I would suggest instead having some of them with bright blue trim and darker pink armor like that, and then have others with the bright pink trim and more subdued blues. Then you can mix them in the force.

Not gonna lie, playing without dreadknights is pretty rough. Especially when you've got a meta full of WAACfagging soulburst yinnari. You will probably lose alot of yor games.
If you stick to your ideals, through all the shit...
You will learn.
You will find a playstyle you enjoy.
You will find joy in painting and converting your army.
You will create a wholly individual and exceptionally awesome army on the table, that makes all these netlisting greytidefags armies pale in comparison.
And then, one day, you will win.
And on that day, after beating a 3 units of wraithflamers, wraithknight, 15 scatterbikes and other bullshit eldar list with nothing but your double dreadnought double landraider list 15 points to 8, with no more than 3 of your models remaining on the table, you will whisper those magic words in his ear: "get gud, mait"
And his weakwilled mind will combust from the sheer badassery of your victory, while his convoluted, charred, fat body twitches in uncontrolled bouts of rage.
And you will be rewarded.
Sisters of Battle waifu's shall frolick to you, your absolute manliness assured.
And then Nu-GW shall descend from the heavens and declare: "Henceforth, Landraiders shalt be-eth one of thy most fearest models on the table."
On that day, your victory will be assured.
