For your needs:

Keep in mind,
Sisters are a fun army to play but you aren't buying into a "fair" army to play. You'll be losing a lot especially against mechanized.

Your gear options you described are GREAT for anti-infantry. 4 storm bolts is 8 shots, 16 double tap. Using the acts of faith and shooting twice in your turn for a squad with 4 (dominions) + the rest of the squad double tapping twice. Situational I know, but on the defense it is insanely good. Or offense if you can close distance. Just hope you have cover + can gun down melee before they melee you.

Closing the distance won't be hard - 3 immolators means 3, 5 sister squads can get in while you get into melta-range. It also means your 5 sisters have to get out and not die horribly... so they will need to be carefully used in this manner.

3 Immolators are great. Make sure you have all the bits or they come with melta, I can't re-emphasize this enough.

$200 is pushing it. $80 a squad new, and on ebay right now i see several auctions at ~$40-50 for 10 or so used (and easy to strip - all metal.)

So to get your 30 bodies on ebay you'll spend at least $120-150 or so. Flamers and storm bolters are not rare at all.

The immolators go for ~$60 depending on how well they are painted etc. $40 NIB but they are out of stock so ebay prices are high. So you get 3 of those? That's another ~$120 if you got NIB from GW. ~$150 if you got from ebay, or more.

TLDR: Your sisters are worth $360 NIB - and on ebay probably about $300, maybe much less if you find cheaper immolators.

Would I pay $200 for that? Depends heavily on how the immolators are, what the paint job is like, and so forth. It isn't a rip-off (as much as I can say that about over priced sister stuff) - but you could find better deals if you really tried.

I say go for it, if you like it you can enjoy it, if not, you can sell on ebay and get most your $ back.

I bought a Knight a few months ago after splitting a cheap Renegade box on eBay with a friend.

The only true lacking units for Guard right now are Armored Sentinels and normal Russes. Tank Commander Russes are totally worth the points, as is Pask. They make up for the lack of firepower Russes have no thanks to their sponson and hull guns being BS5+ on the move. 3+ main gun and 4+ sponson/hull guns is great on the TCs. Pask is even better with 2+ and 3+ other guns. He can also give orders to the other Tank Commanders.

z has 10 sisters of meh cast quality for $10 if you want to go that route.

FW gave sisters a repressor, which has 1-2 heavy flamers, 6 fire points and can hold a dominion squad which lets it scout move (move+advance) before the first turn. The repressor is probably their best unit.

you can also mix and match all imperium now too, so dropping a retributor squad into any army guarantees it gets to always fire twice, which makes it super strong. stormbolter dominions are decent too.

That's because the imperium tries to operate a centralized government that clearly doesn't work when you have thousands of planets hundreds of lightyears away from each other with mediocre means of communication and travel.

Meanwhile the tau use a de-centralized government system. Planets and sectors govern themselves and simply pay tithes to their respective tau sept.

While it makes them more likely to succumb to chaos, the general population is typically more content and less likely to revolt.

Losing out on Battle Focus and Power from Pain seems to a bad trade off for being able to mix Craftworld and Drukhari units. There are some decent Dark Eldar units but few of them can't be replicated with various Aspect warriors.

I should clarify (apologies if I quoted the wrong person, since our replies are identical, I don't know which is which): It probably doesn't. There's a very technical argument that "falling back" is a form of movement, and since units with battle focus can shoot as if they never moved, they can shoot as if they never fell back.

But I would not expect this argument to last past an FAQ, because for other abilities that allow the unit to shoot after falling back, it explicitly says so.

You can field dark eldar units with lame eldar units without running a ynnari faction.

But soulburst is amazing, and if you want to win, you're probably better off playing with soulburst on everything.

The real question for you is whether soulburst is worth giving up Covens units, Mandrakes, and Drazhar, all three of which are pretty strong this edition.

>> No.54062278

They murder infantry and even do okay vs light vehicles. They aren't going to suddenly make Ministorium able to trade punches with the Bugs and Orks but they'll tear through most other units.

Considering you can do arcos and DCA and crusaders and get strong but cheap units they are a nice option.

Bullgryns + Priest are incredibly nasty if they can get a charge in because war hymns and avalanche of muscle makes those mauls insane.

Seems like soulburst is heavily situationally on your opponents army selection. Horde armies are going to be extremely difficult to completely destroy often enough to get a significant power boost.

Seems like it best against the IG and maybe Tau but even against Marines/CSM/Necrons it's going to struggle unless you opponent uses a lot of minimal sized units.

it doesn't need to, because only the units you select get to be ynarri.

Can confirm. Bullgryn do well against single wound models, but they absolutely trash single models if they get the charge off. I've deleted Land Raiders with them in one go. I've gotten up to around 20 wounds dealt at 2 damage a pop. Even if they make 50% of the saves, they get deleted.

Not really. Remember, that soulburst triggers when your units die as well, and you get to cast word of the phoenix on any ynnari unit (not just ones with Strength from Death, this was confirmed on stream a couple days ago).

An idea I toyed with was using Dark Eldar Retinues to field a ton of units. Anytime a single model of the retinue dies, you get a soulburst.

Another idea I had was multiple squads of banshees, with a Jain Zar. If they target either squad and destroy it, you can soulburst the other, and multicharge every unit in range. Doing this can completely interrupt an enemy's shooting phase.

I don't know how good either of these ideas will be in practice, but I think they show that soulburst has lots of interesting applications.

GW is unlikely to do much with SoB to be perfectly honest. In general they are always chasing younger gamers because older players tend to already have one or more complete armies already and are typically unwilling to plunk down a huge sum of money on getting a full army.

I think the basic thought is that SoB won't appeal to younger males and so they focus most of their effort supporting marines and other novice friendly factions.

As a result Marines are always getting new stuff/codices and it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy because why spend a lot of time making new SoB sculpts when you can just crank out another marine set and sell more of them?

So here's my updated list now that I've been turned on to nurgle daemon princes. 2k points

Battallion:
Winged nurgle daemon prince with axe and warp bolter
Typhus

7 plague marines with plasma + fist, plasma, blight launcher
7 plague marines with plasma + fist, plasma, blight launcher
28 plaguebearers with instrument
19 poxwalkers

Rhino with combi bolter, combi melta, havoc launcher
Rhino with combi bolter, combi melta, havoc launcher

Predator with 4 lascannons

Outrider detachment:

Herald of nurgle

Bloat drone

3 plauge drones with instrument


I'll lose out on the pure killing capability of the GUO and how insanely hard to kill it is, but gain a ton of mobility, a useful aura buff that works on both my marines and daemons, and a lot more speed. The extra points turned into plasmaguns for my plague marine champions.

Faced a competitive a eldar urinary army and let me just tell you that they are insane.

Razorwing swarm and other cheap shit granting soul burst, scorpion with their special character assaulting from deepstrike and then spawning the urinary avatar when they kill someone.

Urinary avatar blinking across the field whenever something dies.

Whenever there's a couple of fights happening in a close vicinity 7"~ you're in for a treat and the urinarians will get soulbursts 2-3 times a turn (or deny you options which are even worse)

It's like playing chess against them, you make one mistake and soulburst + urinary teleport creates a near unstoppable chain of events.

Deploying in cover can also deny line of sight entirely, especially with small units, if you cant wipe them from the board then the important people will still be there since wound allocation has changed. This means that by deploying multiple tiny units in as deep cover as you can find, you can minimize the advantage of people getting first turn, then bring all your heavy hitters in from reserve. If you're against fliers, you can even bring the reserves in super close to the enemy, so their minimum move restricts their options for targets. In short, cover is still a big deal if you know how to use it.

>Accomplishing objectives is what determines the victor in a war, not the K-D ratio.
Incorrect.

Random political agendas does not determine the overall effectiveness or the cost of a victory or defeat.

If for example Vietnam had to fight America again, they could ill afford another "victory" of the same kind of k-d ratio again, since no country would prefer to have 1/4 of its entire population wounded.

Such a defeat could have easily been switched around had America simply changed its political goals, such as if Colonialism was back in vogue and America decided to purge Vietnam of the majority of its natives for annexation as another state. Not exactly the most uncommon or historically improbable decision.

In which case that k-d ratio would become extremely important and even become lopsized even more, as the American military basically genocides the natives to make room for colonists.

We didn't do that because we thought at the time that colonialism was bad, m'kay. But such action was possible if our nation was feeling drastic and if our antiwar movement was much weaker.

This sort of reasoning is why the US lost. Not simply because Arvin sucked. No, the US lost because the US didn't realize that a big part of being the patron state in a proxy war is picking a good proxy and then supporting them. You don't win by just backing anyone who says the right phrases, then moving in, muscling them aside, and trying to do everything yourself. The people of Vietnam were never going to accept US occupation, and that's all "South Vietnam" ever was. A US occupation. As soon as the US was gone, there was no more South Vietnam.

The US had no ally in Vietnam. Not really. And it never bothered to actually put in the work developing one. Instead it thought it could win the war by racking up big body counts. Well, guess what? As long as there were Vietnamese people, there would be Vietnamese people fighting against the US. Sure, millions of Vietnamese died. But it was their homeland, and they were willing to fight on despite those losses. They never defeated the US in battle, but in the end they never needed to.

Don't mind all the faggots. I'll answer you just to make them mad and encourage more question-asking since it riles up their autism.

So there's two methods of building a list now. There's the Power method, and there's good old fashion points. Power is much faster and more convenient, but a lot less precise in terms of balance.

Basically if you pay Power for something you get to upgrade all their wargear to the max for no additional cost.

If you do a points game, you have to pay points for each little piece of wargear like in all the other editions. The shitty part is the point costs are all on tables in the back of the book, separate from the rest of the information about said units/wargear. So doing a list by points is going to be pretty fiddly and you'll probably want to do it before you get to the game store because it is neither a quick nor convenient process.

In any case, your point/power costs will be in the Index books for the various factions. Not in the rules, like these faggots are saying.

Generally 100 power points is the equivalent of a 2000 point game (but the wargear has a tendency to get very twinked in any power game)

I've heard of house rules that in a power game each unit is equipped exactly as modeled. Cannot comment, have not seen it in action.

Good luck.

Actually what you tried to do was make the South Vietnamese take over the bulk of the fighting and that's when you realised nobody in the South really cared about the state you'd created.

Then when South Vietnam surrendered and a 2 year peace deal was signed (basically imposed on you by NV) the remaining US forces were close to being overrun as you didn't have enough forces left in the area. The last section of US troops were airlifted from the embassy roof as NVA tanks drove into Saigon and you left thousands of South Vietnamese behind who had helped US forces because you didn't have the manpower to stop the NVA.

I don't see what that has to do with GW making the lieutenant and the other primaris marines on different base sizes despite having the same armor and what-not. I'm not talking about a person modeling for advantage.

OK, I want to get as many grot tank models as I can. I've found a recaster for the FW ones, I've got the tankette in the picture and the three maxmini ones from the kickstarter ordered and obviously I'm going to be scratch building a few.

What else is there on the market? Both in terms of third party orc stuff and historical / sci-fi kits that can be easily converted.

Already on the agenda:

Going to order a few tehnolog / robogear kits and see which ones are the right size.

Going to buy a pack of these at some point and make some of them into mek gunz, the rest probably into trakks and tanks: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tracked-Gun-Weapon-Platform-with-accessories-PACK-OF-SIX-/282482476961?hash=item41c54487a1:g:ObkAAOSwT6pVqixB Maybe a little small, but could add some wheels at the back or make it into a trike or quad track design, I guess.

The Meng 'egg tanks' are perfect for this. Going to get the sherman for sure, probably the tiger and the chinese MBT too if I can find them at a good price.

Also, does anyone have the dimensions of the FW grot tanks? Want to keep mine about the right size.

They didn't need to. All they needed to do was keep fighting. The US had close to a decade worth of time to try to come up with a way to beat the North, public pressure took a long time to eventually build up to the point where the US couldn't keep going. The US consistently failed to deliver an enduring win against the North, even though the US government was constantly saying that they were winning. Eventually the US people got sick of being lied to again and again for years with nothing to show for it. And so the US lost the war.

Three works better, since Cawl's a kinky motherfucker.
But yeah, they're pretty devastating, since they wound stuff about as well as physically possible and ignore most saves. Hitting is what tends to screw them over, and Cawl fixes them, gives them 2+ Shroudpsalm saves more often and makes them essentially BS 1.66+. Given my lone Dunecrawler, only rerolling ones has successfully managed to two turn kill a Land Raider from lucky rolls, I need to get myself some more of those.

Probably going to have wind up with 3 Neutronagers at 2.5k, since we have little other anti-Battleship due to lack of Melta.

On a side note, now vehicles and MCs have one durability scale, should there be words for describing them in tiers? A heavy tank like a Land Raider is no longer a completely different challenge to a heavy MC like a Hive Tyrant. Personally I'm stealing terms from that Uber comic - really big shit like Knights and Hierodules are Battleships, then Land Raiders and HTyrants and Riptides are Cruisers, then lower tiers from Dunecrawler to Rhino are Destroyers.

Yeah, 3++ 5+++ is a 22% failure rate, which is so massively terrifying that a Volcano Cannon to the face only kills two or three, and you can pack 20 of them for 320 points, which is a pretty effective 13" bubble of Do Not Go Here. That squad will kill Magnus the Red if they charge him with Reroll Ones and get a good wrap on him, even if only just (and not quite if he has 6+ FnP Warlord trait). Not calculated how many you need to kill Guilliman, but I suspect 15 will do the job admirably.

Also, you can make some custom dudes. Personally I'm making a huge horde of assorted combat Servitors using Kataphron claws, double Chordclaws and such on Chaos Marauders, for a big blob of expendable nonsense. Back them up with Dunecrawlers to focus down any Dual Kheres dreads and such, Snipers to remove enemy buffs and Vanguard squads to clear though hordes, tank overwatch and debuff enemy T3 to Wound on 2+ and just smash through stuff. You can keep Advancing the Vanguard, too, since that now only loses them 25% of their firepower rather than 75% and your plasma is Assault.
