You have to look at the whole picture.

I cannot see these guys as anything but completely idiotic. Intercessors, Hellblasters and Reivers look good, better than normal Marines, and the Apothecary is gorgeous. Other characters are all decent, but all their big stuff looks retarded. Giant flying babies on skis, even stupider Centurions, a tank with WAY too many random guns and the usual boring brick shape, etcetera.

Also, watching all the Marine players argue and panic about being replaced is hilarious, especially given that my army is Admech and thus almost guaranteed to keep ticking along with decent rules for the next forever and maybe get some new toys to bump them up to good at some point. For once, being the posterboys and getting tons of new toys has bitten them in the ass.

I think you need to get off the internet, anon, that was the only place where idiots were huffing about being "replaced".
Necron dex is considered very balanced, whereas all of the winners in the tournament people like to quote were outlier lists based on whatever the most OP set up that can be found is.
If more armies were like Necrons, tournaments would be a lot more interesting, a lot fewer expected results.

They're powers are amazing. Pretty much everything is good. The mortal wounds and str buff one are stiuational but its just so strong.

They can turn off invulnerable saves on a 8, which is high... but you will rape stormshields and girlymen easily after.

Punisher Cannon still kills 9 ork boyz, 7 guardsmen or 4 marines on average per round. Plasma shots 4 times on average and kills around additional 2 of each. Meanwhile, 2 heavy bolters shoot 6 times and do almost the same, a bit worse with marines and a bit better with orks/guard. But plasma also does much better than hb against heavy targets so it proves more effective when you want to do something else than delete a squad of infantry. Or when you are dealing with marines in cover.

So how does this work exactly? I take all my models, and just slap them into Detachments? And as long as there's a Faction keyword that matches, they're kosher? So I can have a detachment with units from all the Imperium factions in it? Is that how I'm suppose to field all the psykers, techpriests and psykers that aren't listed under IG anymore?

Sanguinius might be better than Girlyman, but that doesn't make the BA's better than Ultramarines. Girlyman realised what Sanguinius represented and how he was a better leader than him; this is thought of as humbleness by Lion and Vulkan. Either way that does not mean anything. Anything of relevance is linked to Ultramarines and how they're the best. There is no negative stuff.

It's like the Tau, their flaw is supposedly small size and massive naivete, but that never show up asides from in a couple random bits of fluff text - They easily muster hundreds of billions of troops, which would need their entire empire to be made of Forge and Hive Worlds to support, and they win everything effortlessly and have the best fleets and perfect timing and are always outmaneuvering their opponents despite being stated to be slow as balls in space.

In the Ultras case, their hidebound and dogmatic views never bite them, unlike the Admech who are ALWAYS complete idiots in fluff because GW made everything grimderp and needed a punching bag. They either have a special snowflake dude like Ventris who doesn't have their one flaw present or the Codex is presented as so perfect or so vague it doesn't matter.

The range is the main thing. Particularly that 15" rapid fire range. Makes it a lot harder to be charged after you move up to RF. That plus the extra wounds and attacks more than makes up for the slightly fewer shots in my opinion. I like Intercessors.

well if i was just starting a new eldar army id for sure get 2 boxes of wraithguard and build them with scythes, two wave serpents to transport the wraithguards.

from there you'll want to pick 2 HQ units, Farseers are pretty good general all purpose HQ units and warlocks are cheap and useful for the second.

Now you need 3 troop choices for a battalion detachment, I like dire avengers but they are over costed for their points so for bare bones army list i'd take guardian units

Farseer on jet bike

Wraithguard w/ d-scythes
Wraithguard w/ d-scythes

guardian squad

>Siggy is 1000+. Khayon mentions that Abaddon later told him that this didn't mean Sigismund was slow, it just meant he was finally down to the level of other master bladesmen rather than better than literally everyone. he was going to lose this fight to Abby, no two ways about it. But as Abby later states "He just wouldn't die." This caused Abby to lose his temper, which was just as planned by Siggy. He knew he couldn't beat Abby and live, so he does a suicide play. He stabs the Black Sword hilt deep into Abby and Abby disembowels him with the Talon. Abby almost dies. As Siggy lays dying he tells Abby that Abby will die weak and shamed just like Horus. Abby takes his corpse and the Black Sword, places it on an empty BT cruiser, and sends it to Terra with the phrase "We have returned" engraved on the blade. He doesn't desecrate Siggy's corpse.

Abaddon had to wait until Sigismund was weakend by old age before he could beat him. What an amazing win.....

The SotEA is ridiculously good. And with an Apotecarius you can even get models back again.
The Flaming Sword is better then the Murdersword. The only situation in which the Murdersword is better is if you nominate something like Draigo and cripple the enemies offensive because he relies on him. Also called: playing against a retard.
Tome of Malcador is much better then the Chaos equivalent.
Eye of Night is still crap..
There are good once and bad once in both codices.

>Daemon Princes are a better HQ than Captains
The equivalent to a captain is a Chaos Lord. Which is worse because of the access to equipment.
Daemon Princes are awesome, but so are Storm Ravens.. Every faction has it's own merits.

I hear mor whining then arguments here. Just because CSM get some toys loyalist don't doesn't mean they are plain better.
As far as I can tell loyalist still have more shiny toys to play with. CSM finally beeing good again is something you should be happy about. Or do you really want to just play agains other loyalist marines, eldar and tau?
