I'm mocking them for failing to match that lore blurb to the actual models.

Obviously they can't be masters of lightning assault if they're much slower than most assault marines.

Obviously they don't have elite specialist equipment if they have a pistol and knife. Yes, it's a Cawl pattern pistol, but all primaris have Cawl pattern stuff, it's just going to be a longer ranged or two shot bolt pistol with -1 rend. They'd have a power weapon or something if they genuinely had elite specialist combat equipment.

The trained to scare people thing might be true, but the appearance certainly doesn't hold up to it, they don't look more scary than regular primaris in any way.

I should be constructive: I don't see enough shooting outside of transports to kill off a 30 gaunt blob, so if you start in the transports, you're stuck. If you start out of the transports, you're either not in range or you're getting charged.

I disagree. Transhuman dread is already a thing. Conine that with the primaris' increased size and I would assume the reivers increased speed due to less armor, and most mortals will be shitting their pants in fear.
I don't know about you, but a 8-9ft tall skull faced humanoid jumping out of the bushes and running at me at inhuman speeds would be terrifying.

My only wish is that they painted the reivers in the RT camo patterns. That would be awesome and a nice reference on GW's part.

>Combined with primaris increased size

It's almost like I said they don't look scarier than other primaris rather than other marines.

8-9 foot seems a fairly ridiculous overestimate though, regular marines are 7 foot so comparing them primaris are probably about 7 foot 6 inches. 8 as an absolute high end, unlikely estimate based off them being similar in height to Custodes models who yes, are 8 foot.

I haven't seen any fluff so far suggesting Primaris are actually Custodes-big though, and their stats certainly don't match up.

I tried out a squad of mixed heavy weapons for the first time ever. 2 lascannons and 2 heavy bolters. Pretty impressed with the effectiveness of devastators even on the move. I like the idea of fielding a second squad with the same loadout on a opposite flank, making it mich more difficult to hide infantry from the hb and tanks from the lascannons.

I liked running the primaris lt with the anti tank stuff too. Pseudo tank hunters.

Also the patrol narrative game is pretty fun. Recommend it.

>> No.54050673

>>54050600
I think the idea is that if you cut out the weapons from the cost of the units you can rebalance the game with a bit more finess. So if the lascannon is too expensive you can decrease its cost across the board without looking at every unit using said lascannon.

...I think.

But anon, 99/100 of the scariness of that scenario is the 9ft superman running at me, the skull face wouldn't really register as much of a threat compared to the rest.

And Space Marines already HAD most of that before with Ass marines, with the added benefit of being much faster at the cost of like 1ft of height. And when I'm a heretic shittting myself in a foxhole, I'm not going to quibble about the murder machine charging me being smaller than expected.

Random question:

The new codex talks about how the Ruinous Powers 'reign supreme' over the 'Realm of Chaos'.

Am I correct in the thought that 'Realm of Chaos' is just the infinite area' of inside the endless expanse of the Warp that is exclusively under the dominion of the Chaos Gods?

I mean, if the Big Four actually "reigned supreme", they should have crushed the other non-Chaos deities by now (Emps, Ynead, Gork and Mork... not Cegorach since he's in the webway playing librarian right now.), yeah?

The idea is to screen with the flyers and duck in and out of close combat and shooting with my flamers. Barring genestealers, i cant think of any hordes killy enough to actually crack a rhino before the other two unload their squads worth of shooting into the blob. The only time i should have my tanks charged is if my opponent dodges my flying support, and if he manages to surround all three then i'm either being masterfully outplayed, making really fucking stupid positioning mistakes, or playing against six hundred conscripts/gants/boyz.

There's probably some areas that overlap around realspace in the warp where the Big 4 don't have much of an influence.


What I mean, is that Emps and Gork/Mork exists partially in a separate realm of the warp powered by their respective species(or even the ork meme-field for Gork&Mork)


Given there's fluff about ordinary beings affecting the warp by sheer mass and faith/emotion(Fall of the Eldar) I wouldn't say it's impossible for a species to create a "bubble" in the warp for their god to exist in.

Forget scenarios. Maybe if the game had ATB/had interrupts instead of "I alphastrike you go", there were more options per unit so shooting wasn't "S5/S6 weight of fire, other units eat shit", shooting could only remove units in LOS, vehicles didn't have perfect 360 vision...

>> No.54051097

>>54050330
Yeah, that was my thinking, especially since I don't need to worry about all but the most extensive countersniping since all my characters save the Datasmith autoregen D3, and Cawl can always patch up the Datasmith. A Vindicare struggles to kill a regular Dominus even if he never fails to hit or wound.

I play a lot of Blood Angels, who are vulnerable to snipers IIRC, plus Guardsmen and Tau, with a lot of misc MEQ. Hoping I can carve up their minor buffs easily enough. Anyone actually used Arquebi? Did they do a good job of things?

Dammit, Ironstriders should have got Sniper when stationary, it would fit their fluff of slowing to a stalk, blasting enemy commanders with heavy weapons through the press of men and then sprinting off instantly way better than the ability to Advance and Snap Fire uselessly.

Aside from being cheese last edition, there's little merit to them. They're too large and specific for counts-as, too many large bits for conversions of regular dudes, and now you might field one where before you'd have fielded as many as possible, so there's incredible market saturation.

I just did a bit of google-fu and it looks like you're half right.

According to Lexicanium (YMMV), there's this place that's called 'the Formless Wastes' which isn't controlled by the Big 4, but Greater Daemons and Daemon Princes can make their own private realms in it if they have enough influence.

Amusingly, since Orks are the biggest race by sheer population in the galaxy, the Ork's WAAAGH! warp is probably larger than the Realm of Chaos, and is 'run' (more or less) by two Ork gods who are, quote, "strong, belligerent, and indestructible".

Yeah, I've known some pretty brutal players who are still in school. There's one here with an Unending Host with Nurgle backup that's been systematically kicking the crap out of my Admech for a year. Fucking respawning melta backed with Daemon Knight smashing all my boops and with 2+ cover because Shrouded. Always really fun though, slaughtering hordes is fun.

Good to hear my boops aren't useless vs. Hordes, I'll need them for the five Tyranid players here.

I always loved playing people who decided to fluff their armies as TEH BEST EVER SNOWFLAKES and load them down with fancy characters like Guilliman. It's the Mechanicus, my Archmagos's only snowflake trait is respawning and everything else in my army is expendable as all hell. Played a 5k for my last 7e game, Admech and Nids vs an unholy UM/DW/GK/Knight mix with Guilliman, and we could have lost both our armies six hundred times over and if we'd killed a couple units it would be worth it because of how wanked Space Marines are.

Take an advanced targeting system instead of the velocity tracker

You could use more fire warriors

Quoting oxford

>The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race
So yes, recognizing that sub saharans have darker skin and europeans have lighter skin is inherently racist. In fact by this definition the only way to not be racist would be to completely deny the existence of any concept of race, therefore ignoring the existence of natural selection upon humans.

Then don't say "in the real world" if you don't want real-world comparisons, dipshit.

At-present, I'm only giving View perms for my sheet, because I don't want to deal with limited-range permissions and such which would be required to make only certain sections of the sheet editable (which would be required to make a publicly usable calculator in a manner that didn't just get trashed). The "Notes" page at the start of my sheet includes the main formulas that I use, from which you could potentially reconstruct my table. This WOULD require doing some excel-learning, though.

Alternatively, I could make an excel file copy of my Blank Sheet (which includes the formula) and upload it for others to use, if that would be helpful. Is that something people would be interested in?

Eh rerolling 1s when you need a 5+ really isn't that good. 20 wounds, you get to reroll 3.3 on average and will pass 1.1. so you're getting about 1 extra saved wound for every 20 saves you make. When you're talking about units with the lethality of poxwalkers it's really not worth spending points for that bonus.
