Honest fucking question, how will any CC army that relies on small numbers of high power units compete in 8e? Like fucking Custodes. How the fuck are they gonna compete against Genestealer spam?

OK, but only if Mechanicus can take all the Tyranid biomorphs and apply them to their units to represent a Genetor army, and the Guard can take Tau or Ork guns to represent a Gue'Vesa or Digganobz army.

I do like these ideas, but speaking as a 30k Mechanicum player where everyone else can take our Cybernetica and make them better than we can by giving them Legiones Astartes rules, it feels like unbelievably one-sided favoritism when the other factions just take your shit without recompense. Mech can cope because they have other options, although it still stings, but I imagine the Guard players are already salty about giving up their iconic tanks and having GSC Outflank them better and buff them up.

Seriously Guardfag, the Orks have been stealing your tanks and stuff for 30 years, both in fluff and on the tabletop.
Bringing back actual Looted Vehicles instead of bland "Looted Wagons" (which are mostly still just Orkified Rhino/Chimera Chassis when it comes down to it) isn't just justified by previous editions of the game, but also 30 years of 40k lore!

because the guard is it's own faction, if you let everyone pick and choose what parts of the guard he wants then you're invalidating the guard as a standalone army
chaos has renegades , tyranids get genestealers
both of those have unique drawbacks and advantages compared to the guard, as it should be , they are well worked out unique armies.
orks on the other hand get generic vehicles , if they want to convert them from imperial kits be my guest i'dd love to see the result but don't go around asking for a vendetta or a chimera because they're better than your transports/flyers

There is absolutely no reason why they would release sisters.
They will sell pretty well, there is a huge demand, of that there is no doubt.
They are probably waiting for the selling spree of the chad marines to die down to start another selling spree with the sisters release.

Considering previous Looted Vehicles operated with the same weaponry as the old Imperial guard/Space Marine just with a BS2 and very limited vehicle selection, you can both choke on the barrel-end of your lasguns.

I mean, I get the point, and it works with Orks because the vehicles take slight penalties for that, so you don't feel like you're being constantly beaten at your own game. Chaos already has evil versions of a lot of Imperial stuff, they don't need to get every minor Guard vehicle and they have Renegades for that anyway, who take a mix of penalties again albeit at less cost.
Genestealers should not be able to outtank the Guard with outflanking Russes and Chimeras with cheap lascannons in them, however. Factions that take other people's stuff need to be somewhat penalized for it, not buffed, as the price you pay for getting access to new combos and such.

>>53375306

Yeah, that's fine. I was just saying that they should be careful with that kind of thing or make it more widespread overall, since at the moment Renegades and Heretics is pretty much Guard, but better in every single way because they get Guard toys, cheaper, with chaos support and such.

I would be totally fine if they spread the "basic" options out a little, though. Give Admech Chimeras and Goliaths with the Lasgun Arrays/Demo Charges stripped out and a 20pt price hike or something in payment for Doctrinas, give Sisters a similar kind of thing with the old Inq chimeras so they can fire five meltas out of a transport, give Orks Rhino-class or Goliath Rockgrinder transports as an alternative to Trukks for shooty squads, fucking EVERYONE gets the Arvus Lighter, all that jazz. Just don't farm out one or more faction's unique toys and such to multiple other armies without penalties.

I've heard generally nothing but positive things from Alpharius, but I can't confirm because I've not made an order yet. CCON is also supposed to be good, but I haven't ordered from him either.

Sylvia White is so-so.

Z has tons of options like individual parts such as assault packs and weapons, and while his prices are cheap, his quality can be hit or miss. Most of the stuff I got from him was good, but some stuff was actually I usable. However, I sent him an email and have replacements coming with my next order.

MI is a personal preference at the moment because she is very easy to order from, has a great selection, good prices, and has pretty good quality, though not perfect.

They should then pay a pile more points for the ability to outflank their enemies with Demolishers and Chimeras loaded with cheap as fuck lascannons and double-shot missile launchers, as well as representing the difficulty of infiltrating the Guard and maintaining tanks as opposed to just having them assigned. If they do already, sorry, but Chimeras and Russes are a huge part of what most Guard players have in their arsenal, so getting unambiguously better ones with better support and army rules is a little bullshit.

Can confirm that old Looted Vehicles weren't "buffed up" in comparison to normal Imperial counterparts.
I used to run a Looted Basilisk (because my Orks are a mostly foot-slogging army and I needed some long range fire support for them against my usual opponents, which were Tau at the time), and it was a big risk-reward unit for me since the Earthshaker cannon was devastating WHEN I rolled to hit, but being an artillery piece meant I either ended up hitting the enemy, nothing, or my own boyz. The fact it operates on the same BS2 because it's crewed by Orks is a real down-grade from Imperial tanks.

>>53375410
>Just don't farm out one or more faction's unique toys and such to multiple other armies without penalties.
Oddly enough, the old Ork Looted Vehicle rules did exactly this. For example, Orks could never loot a Baneblade. Strongest vehicle we could take was the Space Marine Land Raider, and that's still hampered by the Ork's BS2 skill.

No such thing.

You take a detachment and fill them with what you want. But one Key Word must match.

So you can do an Imperium detachment and take Guardsmen as troops, Celestine as a HQ, and Marines. But you can only use stratagems that your entire army shares

>Example above can only use Imperium stratagems

While if you took Blood Angels and Ultramarines you can use Imperium + Astartes Strats

And if you took only Blood Angels you can use Imperium, Astartes, and Blood Angels Stratagems.

It is not as bad as it looks.
If you have any firearm(or replica) with a mag you can try that.
Since the bolters are so fuck huge and heavy she may not have stabilised it by holding it with one hand and may have had to brace it on her upper leg to hold it steady.
As for the mag , if you consider the fact that mags are picked up from the backpacks behind the power armor there can be some sort of a mechanism that requires you to use your finger to release the mag ( like a latch) . When you pick the mag like that yo uare going to hold it that way when you bring in front of you in a fast mag change.

Reminds me of my first ever experience with Superheavy vehicles. A friend of mine with six billion armies traded me an old metal Inquisitor for a bunch of Kataphron and Dunecrawler guns, then next match he rolled up with this abomination of a Baneblade hull sprayed red with unpainted 'Cron, Admech and Ork guns mounted all over it, plus beer barrels and assault ladders, before firing seventeen separate weapons at my War Convocation that I was using one of his Knights to run. I eventually managed to stab it with a Reaper Chainsword and a squad of Rusties, but I'd so lost track of all the guns it had he could have bolted a Deathstrike to it midgame and I wouldn't have noticed.
Fucking Kustom Battle Fortress, man
And before you asked, I took WarConvo to try out max Canticles, but took every upgrade (and I mean EVERY possible upgrade) at full price anyway. I narrowly won after two scattered Rangers shot Grukk in the face after he tanked pretty much everything I had that turn aside from them.

Also of note is the Killsaw Mek that killed a squad of Rusties, the Knight Warden's last HP and my Dominus singlehandedly before being showered with Stubber shots from my main gunless Dunecrawler.

what crippled him more than anything was his lack of commitment to moving up, he had a solid footslog list, but he stayed back out of cover and as you can kinda see in the pics, I came up so fast at him he didn't have time to get inside a forest or behind anything. If we had a different deployment things would have been harder on me tbqh

The big thing is that it's pretty easy to make a good Tau list without even trying and to play it decently.

This poses problems in casual environments, where other armies have to be more careful with how they make lists and play.

Thus two players of the same low skill level will generally lead to Tau coming out ahead.

Add Riptides on top of that and it's annoying to try and deal with for the average player.

A whole bunch of reasons. Taufags tend to be insufferable weeaboos (not all of them, but it's a pattern), their plot armour in the lore is just as often insufferable, many people don't think their aesthetic fits the 40k universe, their playstyle can be annoying and considered cowardly or unmanly even if you beat them, their most abusive units are easily the equivalent of the top 3 army shit even if the rest of the army as a whole is not, and so on. They're just easy to hate on for the widest variety of reasons and many a WAACfag Tau player has earned the scorn.

Here's the long one:

Theory 1: Hating Tau Says More About The You Than the Tau

Statistically, most of us are average players. That’s how averages work. And then a bulk of us (and I would include myself in this category) are below average players. The Tau’s wheelhouse is being a middling-good army. That means lots of us are playing at or below the level where the Tau can be expected to do well, and relatively few of us reach the rarified air where we’re good enough that they’re no longer a threat.

Theory 2: The Tau Are Somehow Unfun

There are mechanics in the Tau codex I’d define as “unfun” – things where really only one side of the battle is enjoying things, rolling dice, etc. The flexibility of the Tau in countering certain mechanics in the game (anything cover related, anything with a vulnerable rear armor value, etc.) can trigger a feeling of helplessness. And that’s not fun.

Beyond that, because of the synergy in the Tau army and their weakness in melee, Tau success is very front-loaded. There’s lots of killing while the full army is up, marker lights are abundant, and units can support each other. So for the first few turns, the Tau roll dice, and their opponent removes units.

Then, if their opponent survives that, the tables start to turn. When the Tau crumble, in my experience, they start crumbling fast. Which means that un-funness switches. Tau are being removed in droves, and then the final tally ends up being much closer than it felt like earlier in the game. And while in a game sense this might be balanced, two or three turns of unfun on both sides doesn’t average out to a fun game.


TLDR: They shitstomp bads and don't play by the same rules as everyone else.

???
They're the Admech's personal army, sure, but I just re-read the Skitarii codex, and I don't remember seeing anything suggesting they're not able/allowed to coordinate with other Imperial forces.

Also, deviating from the Cult doctrine is neither unheard of or even particularly uncommon, particularly the farther you are from the grasp of Mars; Enginseers are forced to do so on the regular for pragmatic reasons, and literally just BEING a Magos Biologis is to stand in defiance of one of the Cult's most central tenets (re: the weakness of the flesh)

The issue is also that the weak armies in 7th edition usually can't even get past that initial point to where the Tau start losing. So they never even see that as a thing, while the Tau who lose to good armies feel helpless about competent melee, so their whining looks especially bullshit and entitled to the aforementioned weaker guys.

One of the big thing is they ignore key parts of the game. (Cover) which for some armies IS their durability (Dark Eldar spring to mind) and also their counterplay / flexibility (which isn't bad, but it's ridiculously good.

>Any suit can buy Skyfire and/or Interceptor

Most other faction's Anti Air is dedicated AA and dead weight otherwise. Not Tau.

Interceptor is strong vs. anyone who uses reserves.

Combined that with the move-shoot-move that suits can do and you can literally be unkillable as your units just keep running out of LoS.

But keep in mind Tau aren't the only one who have this problem.

Get in a there and start offering lower points games with your fully painted army! Trust me, someone will take you up on it and will enjoy the shorter play time. They'll like your painted army and that will give you something to talk about and so long as your not preachy or self-important about the issue inevitably you'll inspire at least a few players to paint themselves. But none of that is going to happen unless you start offering an alternative to status quo.

Most likely. If the marine powerlevel to points is anything to go off of then Rubrics got a major drop in cost, probably around 105 points starting and 78 points for every 5 extra rubrics.
They also lost SnP, which is great for them, and they're garunteed to have a useful power on the aspiring sorcerer.
That, plus the bonus to their saves, with a 2+ against most non-dedicated anti-tank or MC weapons, will most likely make them quite playable, possibly even rather good.

40k basically requires two troops choices, which is a minimum of 20 models.
Kill team requires one troops choice.

SW:A needs less than that, but still probably more than five infantry for an ork force. Also, you're extremely unlikely to find anyone willing to let you count any of those guys as boys in a SW:A game.

Absolute best case scenario, count the warboss as a boss nob with a kombi-weapon and every generic upgrade for 300 points or so, the three nobs and the big mek as boys with choppas and a bunch of upgrades for another 500 or so and if you find the most laid back opponent possible, you could maybe call the killa kan a spanna boy in eavy armour with a rokkit launcha and have a barely valid kill team list.
