I have a confession /40kg/

I''ve always disliked the 40k theme in a actually major way. In recent years its almost sunk to hatred, which generally is fairly significant. My lack of hatred actually was ignorance, for I once generally thought that Games Workshop always literally started with Warhammer Fantasy Battle, and 40k came later, which mostly is quite significant. After finally acquiring pretty many back issues of White Dwarf I mostly have for all intents and purposes realized to my despair that 40k generally has always been a sort of major part of GW, and if anything always been in ascendance compared to WFB, which essentially is quite significant. I don\'t particularly understand how people can definitely get together and specifically have serious battlemechs, soldiers with and without battle armor, and aliens, all fighting on a field like it for the most part were definitely medieval times, which particularly is quite significant. In my opinion the reality of lasers and fission/fusion bombs and what literally have you categorically ourules kind of silly rank and essentially file battles with these things, and yet 40k really is knee kind of deep init, demonstrating how i\'ve always actually disliked the 40k theme, or so they actually thought. Battles in the future don\'t for all intents and purposes play out like this, so my lack of hatred definitely was ignorance, for I once kind of thought that Games Workshop always generally started with Warhammer Fantasy Battle, and 40k came later, or so they mostly thought. Leader soldiers really do not mostly have their helmets ridiculously off when in battle, demonstrating how leader soldiers really do not kind of have their helmets ridiculously off when in battle in a major way. ,

I assume this is pasta, but leaders have helmets off because they have Iron Halos, Rosariums, Refractor Fields or other protection. Your lack of knowledge of the setting shows.

And you're wrong anyway. Games Workshop literally started as a British distrubtor of D&D. They 'got big' because with White Dwarf, they created their own dudes which expanded and expanded. Citadel Miniatures produced minis and GW's eventually bought them. They then produced WHFB which was essentially a physical version of D&D with more models. They had something like 34 different factions at the start which got smaller. WHFB came first, it always came first, if you want to talk about 'main games'. Your post is also a rambling mess.

I actually think Pert essentially is generally more very complex than just being a monster at his core in a subtle way. On his home planet he overthrew his tyrant adotive father and for all intents and purposes tried to particularly create a world of peace in a sort of major way. Then the very big emps literally shows up, and thrusts him into a galaxy where no matter you go, ther eis war in a really major way. Pert literally saw what he needed to kind of be to aid the emperor in his sort of goal of uniting the galaxy under man in a kind of big way. A warlord, a tyrant, which specifically is fairly significant. He for all intents and purposes was what he needed to basically be in a subtle way. Perturabo for all intents and purposes is actually cold and calculating, and essentially saw what he basically believed needed to mostly be done and mostly got it done, efficiently and quickly, which mostly shows that perturabo definitely is pretty cold and calculating, and basically saw what he kind of believed needed to literally be done and really got it done, efficiently and quickly, or so they generally thought. Deep down, Perturabo would for all intents and purposes love nothing definitely more than to specifically be a statesman like Guilliman set out to be, kind of further showing how fairly deep down, Perturabo would mostly love nothing kind of more than to kind of be a statesman like Guilliman set out to essentially be in a very major way. But that''s not the tool the emperor needed, contrary to popular belief. People often literally compare Pert and Dorn, and this really is apt, further showing how people often actually compare Pert and Dorn, and this for the most part is apt, which specifically is quite significant.


>> No.55040704


Both essentially were very willing to set themselves to difficult tasks and specifically be whatever tool the emperor needed them to for all intents and purposes be in a kind of big way. This brought them both to the meat grinder that generally is Siege warfare, so both really were particularly willing to set themselves to difficult tasks and mostly be whatever tool the emperor needed them to be, or so they really thought. They for all intents and purposes were both adept at cracking the definitely tough nuts in a really major way. And building their own, which definitely shows that a warlord, a tyrant, which mostly is fairly significant. Both became very renowned for their mastery of siegecraft, but this basically is where Pert begins to basically go into a spiral, so he for all intents and purposes was what he needed to be, or so they mostly thought. In the Siege there for the most part are particularly few his equal, and he for the most part wants to really be seen, and respected for that, to specifically be given the honors he rightfully deserves, yet everywhere ehe generally looks he definitely finds himself dealing with The rivalry of The Imperial Fists, who on some kind of joint battles, essentially are given the very seeming credit for the victory, one painting described in the books features the Imperial Fists and Iron Warriors breaking a siege, but actually has the Iron Warriors scraping in the mud while the Fists actually are riding gloriously overtop of them, so perturabo definitely is fairly cold and calculating, and particularly saw what he particularly believed needed to really be done and specifically got it done, efficiently and quickly, which really shows that perturabo for all intents and purposes is fairly cold and calculating, and particularly saw what he generally believed needed to really be done and specifically got it done, efficiently and quickly, which kind of is fairly significant.

That and Dorn saying that Ol\' Pert couldn\'t defeat a fortification designed by Dorn basically were the nails in the coffin, showing how they essentially were both adept at cracking the particularly tough nuts, which essentially is quite significant. (Pert not knowing that Dorn would particularly also actually be of the opinion that he could not definitely penetrate a fortress designed by Pert either, demonstrating how perturabo really is kind of cold and calculating, and essentially saw what he essentially believed needed to essentially be done and literally got it done, efficiently and quickly, which for all intents and purposes shows that perturabo for all intents and purposes is really cold and calculating, and definitely saw what he basically believed needed to literally be done and definitely got it done, efficiently and quickly, which literally is fairly significant. Dorn for the most part is definitely bad with the kind of whole words thing.) Pert generally felt snubbed and unappreciated for that which he particularly was most proud o, his ability to construct, demonstrating that this brought them both to the meat grinder that kind of is Siege warfare, so both definitely were kind of willing to set themselves to difficult tasks and really be whatever tool the emperor needed them to literally be in a basically big way.

So in conclusion, Pert was simply a product of his environment and what he experienced in it.

I hole-hardedly agree, but allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality. I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of moral righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go. Make my words, when you get down to brass stacks it doesn't take rocket appliances to get two birds stoned at once. It's clear who makes the pants in this relationship, and sometimes you just have to swallow your prize and accept the facts. You might have to come to this conclusion through denial and error but I swear on my mother's mating name that when you put the petal to the medal you will pass with flying carpets like it’s a peach of cake.

You'll want to get into melee with any immortals and warriors, preferably with the poxwalkers. Save the high damage weapons for scarabs, destroyers, and wraiths.

>miniature brush care
There you go
Don't dab your brushes onto the bottom of your paint/water pot, always clean them when you're done painting (curdled soap or hair shampoo usually work good enough) and put the plastic caps back on your brush. While painting, make sure the bristles don't bend too much, or you'll never get a fine tip again.

>> No.55041206

For Guard, I'm expecting Conscripts to have either a restriction, like 1 per detachment, or something like they can't take orders or don't benefit from summary execution. I'm also expecting heavy weapons teams to go up in price as well as artillery tanks going up a bit in price. I also think Harker and Yarrick will go up in price. I also have a feeling that they will get rid of the back out of combat and still shoot order, or modify it to be -1 to hit rolls when given the order.

As for buffs or new additions, I'm thinking there will be regimental doctrines for veterans and army buffs for all the current regiment models. Like realistically I'm thinking Catachans will have WS3+ on their infantry squads and a strategem to allow like a unit to gain the scouting ability. Vostroyans to get a leadership buff and maybe access to a 4+ save at the cost of 1-2 points per model. Steel Legion I can't imagine what they would get or Valhallans, but something. Maybe Cadians will get some sort of strategem to give whatever unit +1 to hit rolls.

Those are what I think will happen. My hopes are that they will include mounted horse characters like DKoK. My other hopes are that Ogryn and Bullgryn remain unchanged and that Straken remains unchanged.

>I blame Chaos
you're cancer
the entire fucking point of 40k was that it's a bleak shithole, the god of humanity was an athiest super-psyker who got crippled, the eldar gave birth to a god that wants to eat them all, tyranids and necrons are trying to eat and murder literally everything respectively, and orks just want to fight.
No one is winning, chaos originally couldn't win in real space, no one could win.
The "Chaos totally wins in the end!" bullshit came from exactly what I was complaining about, a Chaos fanboy ascended to writing.
It's 40k, it is grimdark, there is no winning.
But Imperium is filled with cunts who think they're the good guys, memelords who shout heretic in stores, and idiots who forget that the Emperor specifically said not to worship him.

Yeah I know Chaos was an unstoppable force, it's like the anthropomorphism of entropy.
But it's also everything else.
It's like a collective subconscious, every emotion, every thought, every feeling is reflected in warp space and then amplified because the fabric of reality is like a fucking lens for that shit that amplifies it for some reason.
Plus warp stuff can infect realspace stuff, but this isn't always a bad thing for the infected.

To put it simply. You are totally fucked until the Codex comes out.

The only saving grace you will get, is if your meta is full of people who play fluffy armies. I wasn't this lucky.

Small games seem more balanced, but in large games, you will get stomped so bad that you will wish you never got out of bed.

Oh. But don't worry. You'll have thousands of faggots reminding you that reanimation protocols is OP, and Necrons are fine, while completely ignoring that they are bottom teir, and all but completely unrepresented in competitive play.

Can't speak for the rest of the Admech players, but we're not bad, just REALLY BORING. They slashed all the fun bitz off our army and called it simplicity, so now we're just stuck with Kastelans and Dunecrawlers en masse to compete. I wrote a little list of improvements for our codex which IMO would boost all the units to "Reasonable" status, but I'd want to get some critique on them since I probably overbuffed us.

- Generic Archmagos rules to stop the "Everyone Runs Mars" for Cawl thing.
- Skitarii need their 6+ FnP back instead of useless invulns.
- Rangers need permanent AP-1 and/or the ability to target characters, Vanguard need 2W Radcarbines back.
- Haywire gets a significant price bump but is made equivalent to Xenos haywire.
- Dragoons need a couple more attacks or a price cut.
- Kata Breachers could use a slight price cut.
- Fuck this Cognis bullshit, make it so they gain Sniper when stationary instead of worthless Advance bonuses.
- Enginseers need to be HQs and able to repair anything, they're useless now.
- Infiltrators could use their extra attack they lost for no reason back.
- Rusties need melee attacks that Mortal Wound vehicles on a 5+, so as to compensate for losing all their grenades and giving them a use.
- Canticles as a whole need adjustment to prevent all but one being useless - TH Reroll Ones should be a flat +1, +1S should be +1 To wound in melee with all our 6+ abilities, Electromancer should be a 5+ trigger with 4+ for being within 1" of 10 or more models to make it more reliable at swarming enemies.
- Torsion Cannon should be D3 shots against MONSTERS so as to be a counterpart to Haywire, but go up a few points to counterbalance BS3+ Canticle.
- Arquebi down to 20pts.
- Plasma up to 25ppm but we get our third shot back.

- Kastelans go up 25 PPM, Protocol shift is a 3+ so it can be a CP Sink. They'd be pretty absurd with BS3+.

Some of these weaknesses come with the faction. Necrons aren't supposed to be very mobile in general.
Even so you can be mobile. It's just not worth the points.

The anti-tank (or anti-big stuff in general) is a serious problem, I agree. They need something like the old rending for all their gauss weapons back.

Some of their weaknesses are caused thru bad missions and too strong counters from other armies. You can avoid some of them (especially in casual games) but others are really crippling.

But then again these are problems other factions have too. Especially factions with low unit diversity like GSC or DW

Cawl is nowhere NEAR as overpowered as Guilliman, though. No free CP, a fraction of the melee damage and durability, half the rerolls, no massive 12" bubble of random buffs and no rezzing. He's a tougher Chapter Master who makes Canticles less bad, and costs %70 of what Bobby G does anyway.

A generic AMagos would probably lack his fancy wargear and Canticles rule (since hopefully they'd actually fix the Canticles), too, we just want a way to get rerolls without running a named special character.

As for the FnP, currently after ten games I've rolled about two 6++ invulns. We have no transports and no other durability aside from one turn of guaranteed cover, so we could use Dark Eldar level of durability for our infantry rather than paying more points for a useless save. Hell, remove it entirely and just drop the points cost by 1ppm and everyone would be happier.

Wut? Why need? You already do mortal wounds with Transonic razors. Any reason why they have to be so powerful?

Canticles are too random without Cawl, I agree. But useless? That's exaggeration.
Especially the critique with Electromancer I can't agree at all. You can still trigger it multiple times by placing multiple units in range. It's very powerful.

For the Rangers it's mostly since they got completely shortchanged in the edition switch, and would have AP-1 if not for GW not wanting to overshadow their precious Primaris Marines. The Arquebus is nice, but if I use my normal two squads I have 60 points of worthless guys who can't really contribute to the snipage. I would give them Sniper without the Mortal Wounds thing just so they can join in.

I have literally never used Cognis, and we pay extra points for it even on units that have massively nerfed Advance. Also, for Ironstriders their entire fluff is that they slow to a stalk and then shoot enemy leaders in the middle of the press of guys, so it's a little odd that they can't even approach doing that. Maybe adjust that with a BS penalty or something, but currently it's just extra points on a unit that would be good if those paid for anything.

As for the Rusties, they're currently a bit useless since their old niche was vehicle-killing, and now they are more fragile with no FnP, more multiwound weapons and worse damage output. On average a squad of 5 charging Terminators (supposed to be their ideal target) will kill a whole one guy, or a third of their points cost before being hacked out of existence. The 5+ Mortals against vehicles would represent them using the dataspikes and Mindscramblers that don't exist in rules now and would allow them to have a job tackling things like Leviathans.

Electromancer is currently far too unreliable, since you sacrifice Reroll Ones To Hit or some other buff that would make the actual melee UNITS better just to fish for one or two wounds per useless squad. Only good for transmuting into better Canticles with Cawl or swarming enemies with a bunch of characters, and even then only against rather elite units since otherwise you can just hack away with R1s Axes and probably do better.

I am playing 3x 20 gens, 2-3 Broodlord, Venomtrophes, 2x 30 Hormagants and Biovores basically since the Index dropped and I didn't lost a single game so far. Some draws, but no losses.
Not having BigBugs is a problem in case you face a lot of large stuff. But in general the Genestealers are just deleating units and the Hormagants are some of the best unit to tie up your enemy and shield your more important units from harm in the game.

Funny enough one of the hardest armies to face are AdMech because they have probably the best snipers in the game. And without the synapse you run out of steam pretty fast.

That said I have many little things I would want to change for a future codex. Lictor having only 3 attacks is an example. Even if you get a character standing around like an idiot you probably won't kill him right away, if you even get into cc. They are an distration unit at best. And I rather use spore mines for that. Especially if I get them for free with my Biovores.

Malantrophes help by the way with the BigBugs. But a -1 isn't good enough if you face a dozen lascannons.

Deploy intelligently so that they can't rapid fire on your important shit from deep strike, make use of screeners.

A buddy of mine, who also plays nids, plays a carnifex spam army that utilizes the malanthropes.
Its done pretty well for him, but its usually the shock factor of "holy shit there are fifteen carnifexes charging me across the table what do I do".
Alot of times he just pretty much instantly loses because someone brought a couple lascannons more than usual and/or knows how to kite the fexes before they reach the lines, or countercharge them with really good, durable/killy CC units (eg, I watched him play a game against a DA player, the guy shredded him with his godhammer land raider and tri-las-predator, had two of those flyers, one of which finally went down on T3, and then countercharged the fexes with Belial and Deathwing knights, that game was a massacre)

I get what you are saying about the Rangers. But really, try using multiple units with the Arquebus. It makes buff-characters (besides the big Blue of course) almost unplayable if you don't have enough LoS blocking terrain.

The bigger problem with the Cognis is in my imho that the bonus isn't really helping you with something you would care for. The Ironstrider is already pretty mobile and with the range of the weapons you very, very rarely advance with it.
It's nice to have if you want to take objectives with it. But I doubt you want to do it because that is basically suicide...

I agree with the FnP for the Rusties. But more attacks with a chance for mortal wounds is just too powerful. They are already very good against most units.
What they should have done is made the mortal wound ability an extra attack with a higher chance of success. Then you don't have to worry about crazy outcomes while make them more reliable.

Like I said the problem with the Canticles isn't them beeing too weak but too unpredictable. You can still choose them once per game, which is actually pretty strong. Problem with this is that about halve of them will be useless against certain lists, which is the reason why the randomness is such a problem.

What the faction needs the most are more characters/HQ choices, some cheap unit for bubble wrapping and a few more specialists to support the existing units.
The last point is pretty tricky but very important because one of the major problems right now is the limited option for specific tasks and how the existing specialists have to be super effective or are just outright failing.
If your infiltrators don't get your opponent locked up and away from the rest of your army and you can't just shoot this unit off the table in 1-2 turns you are basically fucked. Having units that compliment the others would be huge.

Lists like that are just too easy to counter. A good competitive army right now is either outright able to deal with something like that (meaning: going to offensive themselves) or has bubble wrap units that block them from doing anything relevant and kill them a little more slowly.

The only way to fix that for Nids would be some kind of FnP spam. Catalyst beeing once per turn and only on a single unit is making it pretty useless to block multiple damage weapons.

Durability and mobility. And that's fine, I don't want top tier shit like conscripts so that GW nerfs them to the ground in a FAQ.

We are a powerful melee army that doesn't have the numbers or durability (or morale) to take sustained fire, so we either sacrifice melee power for ranged support or go the full all-or-nothing melee threat saturation route. I like the latter because it's fluffier.

Here's something to remember about using screeners. Put them too far out and they'll be isolated and removed with little worry. You have now a.) given free kills to the GK and b.) have very little in way of returning fire. Put em too close and you get multicharged hard. You need to put your screeners far enough forward that the GK can't shoot at the things behind your screeners effectively but close enough that you can still move into position to return fire once the GK drops. It's a tight balancing act further complicated by terrain density on your board + which deployment was drawn.

Another thing to keep in mind when playing against anything that can alpha strike. Just because they can drop turn 1 doesn't mean they will. In some rare cases it might be better for them to bait you out of your castle'd formation before dropping their heavy hitters on turn 2, maybe even turn 3. The cases are rare indeed, but it can happen.

>> No.55045585
