More Immortals. Most game stores aren't WIZYWIG anymore. Put your 20 man directly behind the immortals, @2" from base. Put your leaders in the 20 immortals.

So I've wondered this, sisters of battle's armour has breast cups on them, but that's hardended ceramite, and probably is such thick armour it doesn't actually curve around the chest, so that leaves a lot of questions

Switch your cryptek with Illuminor Szeras, change your Trazyn to Anrakyr, and make sure your Overlord has a Staff of Light for adaptability. Change your Lychguard to BnP Praetorians. When I say burry your leaders in the blob, put them 1-base-length behind your front line of warriors so they can charge out from the blob.

I'm bored, so I'm reposting my short battle report from my game this week. Apologies if you've seen it already, just tune me out if that's the case.


Short game this week. Two horde-ish armies bring played by newish players, so we barely got through 2 turns before the store started closing. This was probably more my fault given how many characters were packed into the list I was using. The game was 2000 points, my Armageddon 27th vs Tyranids of an unspecified hive fleet.

+++Armageddon 27th Iron Horses+++

Pictured is my list. After last week’s game, which illustrated to me how stupidly powerful IG can be this edition, I decided to retire that list and try something more like the exact opposite of the usual conscipts/scion combo with russ support.

Instead, I went with:

>6x infantry teams
>3x Salamander scout vehicles
>1x Ogryn unit of 4
>9x mortar teams, 1x lascannon team
>Yarrick, priest, Straken, Nork, commissar, 2x captains
>1 of each assassin and an Ordo Xenos Inquisitor
>A chimera for just about everything

My goal here was a melee-centric list that uses Yarrick’s reroll 1s ability, Straken’s +1 attack, the priest’s +1 attack, and the Fix Bayonets! order to get 5 attacks in melee per turn per guardsmen. Instead of sitting back and shooting, I would run right into the enemy’s face and pummel him with a hurricane of tiny fists.

>> No.55049536


+++Tyranid Hive Fleet+++

Here is the Tyranid list. I don’t know much about their codex, but I know he took:

>a big unit of Carnifex including Old One Eye
>another sizable units of Zoanthropes
>some biovores
>a big clump of genestealers and cultists
>2 swarms of shooty gaunts
>shooty warriors
>some huge warlord that conferred FNP and respawned gaunts

Those Carnifex in particular would turn out to be a huge problem.

I never even considered this, I had not even looked at the their models since the army launched. Thanks!

The rolled mission was relic, the rolled deployment was Dawn of War (I think – the 12” from table edge one). Tyranids finished deployment first and got +1, which gave them the first turn.

I threw quite a bit of terrain on the table for this one since /tg/ feedback last game was not enough terrain. My army was definitely shootier than his, so if anything I thought it would give the bugs a marginal advantage. I did not randomly scatter the terrain and kept it balanced instead.

>> No.55049566



As before, I put the Salamanders on the flanks with the intent to get deployment zone points and maybe harass biovores. The nucleus of my army was the bunch of characters and the 60 infantry + Ogryns, which I intended to just throw right at him and see what happened. They all went packed into the center ready to swarm the relic. Mortars and lascannons went in the backfield with the vindicare, the Culexus tailed a vehicle in the center and the Callidus and Eversor went into reserve.

I forgot to roll to seize initiative. Because I am retarded.

+++Turn 1+++

The bugs advanced in the center with almost everything, getting to within 3” of the relic. Biovores, warriors, and Zoanthropes all nuked the lascannon team right off the bat and killed all of them. A few shots were fired at the mortars, too, but only resulted in a spore mine drifting menacingly close to them.

On my turn, the Salamanders zoomed up the flanks while every single chimera emptied its passengers,then drove up behind them for support. 60 guardsmen and 4 Ogryns, stirred to righteous frenzy by the Ministorum priest, Yarrick’s speech over the internal vox, and Straken’s gung ho battlecry all moved right up to the insectoid menace. My lines ended up about 6-8 inches away, so I decided to direct all my shooting at the carnifexes, his warlord, and the zoanthropes lest he pick off lots of gaunt casualties to prevent the charge I wanted to get. The Vindicare landed 3 wounds on the warlord, the Eversor popped up behind the warriors, and the Zoanthropes were surprised to learn that one of them had been a Callidus all along.

The Eversor rolled well on his charge, but the warriors did better with 2 6s on overwatch that inflicted 9 wounds on the assassin. He went down like a bitch before doing anything at all. The Callidus had a bit more luck and inflicted 2 wounds on a Zoanthrope with her phase blade, conveniently ignoring their 3+ invul saves. The Culexus fared best of all and, charged by so many psykers around him, drilled 5 wounds onto Old One Eye with his animus speculum.

All the infantry made it into charge, eating about 10 casualties from 30+ overwatch shots per gaunt unit but shrugging off the losses and ramming in with 3 attack a piece. By the end of the bayonet charge I had killed maybe 20 gaunts, and the Ogryn had put 3 wounds on a carnifex.

>> No.55049595

I dislike BnP Praetorians. They have the extra attack it seems now, but I just prefer the AP -3 shooting. Especially with the people that I frequently play with. I do need to get Szeras and Anrakyr still. Anrakyr is such a good character. I have yet to complete my Named HQ collection. And I still prefer Orikan over Szeras anyway because of his better beatstick ability, Szeras upgrades are a little too random for my tastes without a chance to use it a few times as test. And the Cryptek's 5+ invuln against shooting has saved me more times than I want to have had to happen.

+++Turn 2+++

The nids reeled from the unexpected charge of human fleshbags, withdrawing with the gaunts and Zoanthropes. Purestrain genestealers outflanked with cultists in tow and charged in on a mortar team, while the warlord bug advanced to tie up the guard infantry and cover the diminished gaunt swarms (really the casualties ended up about 50/50 at this point for the gaunt/guard melee). Nid shooting was light since most units were falling back or in combat, but the zoanthropes nearly smote the Callidus to death, her life spared by 4 simultaneous 4+ invul saves. The infantry took more losses, but even with morale losses kept the bugs tied up across the entire front. Old One Eye kills 3 Ogryn in a single round of combat.

(It has since been pointed out to me you can't take invul saves against smite. This was an error on our parts)

You could take a shot of your army before the game starts as like a header for it or something. I was wondering this too actually.

>> No.55049637


IG is up. Those infantry squads locked in combat pull out, and those out line up into orderly ranks. Get Back in the Fight! And First Rank Fire, Second Rank Fire! Orders cover the field and lasgun volleys chew up the already-depleted bug ranks and tack a few wounds on the monsters. The Culexus again takes 3 wounds on the enemy warlord, though his psykout grenade completely fails to wound. The Vindicare knock a few wounds off, too, and the Ordo Xenos Inquisitor dominates Old One Eye and tries to force him to use crushing claws on the carnifex next to him. All four attack miss. Finally, all the chimeras hear the mortar team getting torn apart behind them, turn around, and light up that terrain piece with heavy flamers, multilasers, and heavy stubbers, dropping all the genestealers but 1 and the broodlord.

The entire Imperial line charges back into melee. Straken compeltely fails to wound the warlord, and Yarrick fails to wound Old One Eye. Nork does headbutt the warlord for 3 wounds, though, yet it is not enough to fell the beast. As an afterthought I throw the attacks of my last 12 guardsmen at the thing and they take the last wound down, killing it with monoknife bayonets. victory is fleeting, though, as old One Eye gets his vengeance and lands 9 wounds on Yarrick, whose refractor field stops all but 2 of them. He fails one of his 3+ get back up rolls, which I spend a command point to reroll and he still fails it. Fuck.

At this point the store is about to close, so we call it a draw. While it’s clear the battle will swing my way when one of my many character picks up the relic and just runs away with it, all my infantry and vehicles blocking for him, at this stage of the game both warlords are dead and both deployment zones are violated. We shake hands and promise to start the next game earlier should we ever play again (2 turns took almost 3 hours).

I was disappointed with the Callidus and Eversor assassins, and the Ogryn definitely didn’t do well against the carnifexes, especially Old One Eye. It seems like I should have used FRFSRF on the bugs during turn 1 instead of charging with all my infantry, which did almost as much damage to me as to him. Then again, it did invalidate many of his units, which all fell back or were locked the following turn. Altogether it was a fun gimmick to try, but I’m not convinced it’s better than just shooting those lasrifles instead.

Straken’s buff was good, but he himself didn’t do anything at all, even with his anti-monster ability. Yarrick likewise did nothing at all – really the only characters that pulled their weight were the vindicare, culexus, and Nork, who did more damage than all the officers combined just by slamming his face into the biggest bug on the table.

Fun game, but I’m hoping to actually get a full 6 turns in sometime in the future.

BnP beats out the RoC in pure numbers (6.30 Wounds vs 5.56 Wounds on manlets, not including Anrakyr leadership and aura). And I am talking about raw tournament list, not kitchen table.

Szeras is a reliable lascannon, something our army is in short supply with and on a mobile platform (at 3+, can advance and shoot, can be given a +1 to-hit with Anrakyr leadership). Melee is nice, but you will have melee elsewhere (Wraiths, Praetorians, etc.) Don't lose sight that we are a shooty first army with a melee vanguard and leadership. Orikan is good only because of his powered up form is permanent. You get more from cover than a 5+ invuln, anyways.

Szeras' +1 strength is a joke, but 20 S5 warrior charging in on manlets after double tapping is disgusting. +1 toughness and +1 BS are the ones we really care about. So he is cocaine 66% of the time and icing at 33% of the time.

Szeras' +1 strength would be extremely good for Praetorians in general and Lychguard with shield. It would make them wound on 2's against most IG and Eldar units.

My heavy melee focus, which I say is a melee 'focus' but I still have the extreme amount of shooty we have in general, really lends to strong beatstick HQ's like Obyron and Trazyn. Especially Trazyn bonking characters and spitting mortal wounds at people. Since his attacks do D3 damage, the Lychguard can split attacks to whittle down any sargent or other leader to 2 wounds then let Trazyn mulch it to get the mortal wounds on everything else around it.

>> No.55049899

Trazyn is just an aufl HQ, and I love the guy. He has a worse Warscythe and it only does a mediocre thing if he kills a Character... in an edition where killing a regular HQ is something that happens round 3 or 4. And his stand up with 1d3 wounds on a full health Overlord or Lord with 5 or 4 wounds, is just terrible. Wait til they fix him or put him on the shelf.

Something cool I realized about imperial/Eldar/chaos having access to all their armies is you can basically make legal counts as models
For example

Pure speculation here, but I imagine its mostly ornamental and the all the same size. Given that SoB were organized as they are to get around the letter of the decree passive it makes a certain sense to extravagantly emphasize their "femaleness" with big titty armor. That means they probably picked a pretty big cup size for the armor that fits most girls and add padding on the inside to fit the owner.

I have one of each and regularly bring both to games. Exocrine is hampered by a stuborn unwillingness to move and needs to be baby sat with synapse as the rest of your army moves on to choppier pastures. Tfex still doesnt like moving (no shooting twice) is a little less reliable but can move with the times and isnt just stuck parked in the back and doesnt need baby sitting to much because he can just move along with the synapse every other turn or so. Point cost difference is basically negligible. While both are great the exocrine just wins over imo so long as you never have to move it

That's why no one played them back when I went to a store in 5th. A single person would occasionally pick some up, but they got them for their sister who never gamed there. Same with Grey Knights before their new codex in that edition, Dark Eldar to an extent, and generally any units that were metal-only. People avoided them because it was hard to work with and costly, especially when marines, IG, orks and Chaos marines were either almost completely in plastic or everything that mattered was plastic.

What does /tg/ think of my dudes?

Disciples of Purity: Specialized in fast, overwhelming strikes. They scout the weakpoint of the enemy, hit it hard, scout the new weakness made by said strike, rinse and repeat. Built their fortress world on a pleasure world, home to great artists, decadent nobles, fine foods and powerful drinks, etc. etc. due to some prophesy about a sector devastating incursion that would start on that planet. The astartes of the chapter started to interact with the nobility, which over centuries influenced them enough to have similar interest as them, art, music, food and drink, etc.

This led to many rituals and traditions being based around artwork. When an astartes proves himself a great warrior, he is given the right to ask an artist to design a modification of that astartes choosing, whether it be a unique pauldron, ornate helmet, sick trims etc. They regularly compete for pieces of artwork and the more veteran a warrior gets the more elaborate and gaudy his armour becomes. Many become fantastic duelists due to a contest held every decade by the chapter were two astartes duel each other unarmored wielding only rapiers.

The winner is selected from a pool of winners by a jury of noblemen who rate them based off of 'swordsmanship' which leads to fantastical and extravagant displays, as the astartes attempt to impress the regular humans who have never seen a real fight in their lives. This is meant to prove martial prowess as well as find those who are favored by the people. This has led to a really innefficent style of fighting, that only works because they themselves are superhuman machines of death. The astartes are quick to sing their own praises and are seen as prideful and haughty pricks by pretty much everyone who isn't themselves.

My plan is to make a small force of these guys and then whenever GW decides to release emperors children have them fall to chaos and make a chaos warband from them. Are they too emperors children?

That sounds like a few trolls and retards, who complain about EVERYTHING. I've seen people bitching about Necromunda models being bigger than the old gangers, as if suddenly you won't be able to use old metal gangers... or something. I actually have old metal gangers, and expect my juvie to be pretty tiny with the new models, but I don't care, I look forward to seeing new and old models together on the board. Most of the trolls don't seem to have any pics of their minis to show, and I doubt their have any sisters to show if they start stirring up bullshit when SoB plastics hit.

I don't think most SoB players will complain about new people playing their stuff, they KNOW new players will flood in once plastics hit. 20 years of demand will make that kinda thing happen. It's not like GSC being introduced in last edition, either, I can start planning my SoB army now with index rules, and try to get deals on sisters on ebay. It would just be a lot less costly to buy boxes of plastic sisters, and any normal person will know they won't look exactly like 20 year old metals, because nothing new from GW looks that much like the old style.

For name, how about The Emperors Purity? The purity thing is meant to be ironic due to the fact that they're a bunch of vain, glory-seeking asshats who will eventually fall to chaos.

i remember those weird chariot rules and skulltakers 4+ rending instant death attacks. also splitting your army was either fun or hurt you more so when the entire army is forced to deep strike turn 1

i miss greater daemons having 4++ by default because this 5++ on a keeper might as well be a tshirt

Honestly, if any old army would actually benefit from the over designed clutter of newer miniatures, it would be Sisters of Battle. They should be overflowing with iconography, purity seals, skulls, fire, the works.

I don't know what big thing they could really get though... and EVEN MORE Penitent Engine? I wouldn't be against a Canoness riding some huge mount, but don't know if that would work.

Oh, and start small, 500-1000 pts or so. Get a feel for how pure dreads will fight, magnetize at least a few of them so you have options (though if there is a configuration you just know you'll want every fight, do one up special for it). You'll get an idea of what does and doesn't work against what pretty quickly, and then you can expand from there.

4++ and having guns makes Tzeentch unironically the strongest daemon faction.
Which pisses me off since Slaanesh is my favourite.
My daemons need to be heaps faster to make up for how squishy they are.
The only way to win with them currently is with Spearhead detachment fast attack spam.
Daemons getting a bonus for taking max size units then being raped by battleshock even if you take a daemonic icon is just a slap in the face on top of everything else.

Shit dude it works.
Dedicate the Possessed to Tzeentch and put a Herald near them to buff their strength to 6 if you want, or take a CSM Daemon Prince of Tzeentch, since their is no reason not to so you can grab the Dark Hereticus Tzeentch power to buff their invul saves, and give them rerolls to hit of 1.
That's just a single elite and hq choice that'll hit harder than most things.
But trust me as a Slaanesh Daemon player, 7 inch movement is not as much of an upgrade as you think it is.

I was thinking keeping the daemon prince the non CSM version, both for fluff reasons and because it let's him keep his ++4 as well as the buff spell that can give the possessed +1s or +1t or +1a. I'll miss out on a relic, but the rest of the csm specific stuff doesn't bother me too much. I'll have to pick up the changeling sometime too.

>Higher S, less wounds, worse to hit. Debatable at best.

I thought higher strength was the whole point?
He's a guy in a tank top who's stronger than a woman in power armor.
He's not as tough (probably because no armor) and not as accurate (being a human wielding a heavy bolter may have some influence there)
but he shows gender dimorphism of strength exists without question in 40k

>> No.55055803

The challenge was better stat line in response to >better S, T and W

One higher S, two lower W isn't really meeting the bar. Mainly I'm interested to see what overall best human stat line is, using 40k stats to talk about -4str memes is dumb on a few levels.

>> No.55055810


Well the canoness has power armor, so that's hardly a pure human statline.

>> No.55056107

This pretty much. They have other things going on, like investigating and paper work. It makes me sad that Inquisitors in Terminator armor don't have WS2+ because with the Thunder Hammer they hit on 4s.
