Math chamber is always akward for games, iirc it's fulgurites that comparatively win every fight ever point for point, but in game that's obviously not dominating

Few things. Death Guard codex art is just balls. Two big art pieces have been posted from the Codex and they're really good, no idea why GW didn't go with either of them.

You're joking, right? Guillman is much much better than magnus, and I say that as someone who plays UM and TS. Magnus is good, don't get me wrong, but Guillman has a better buffbubble, can't be targeted by most shooting, arguably better melee, has a better invul, better armor save, better warlord trait, gives free command points and he's cheaper than magnus.

Fulgurites are REALLY good at looking at big smashy melee monstrosities like Primarchs, Bignids, Dreadnoughts and pretty much any other single model, or small unit like Ogryns, since they'll just surround it and unleash 12.22 Mortal Wounds plus whatever the regular damage would do.
Against actual CC units they're pretty bad, since the good ones this edition like KBs and Stealers have loads of attacks or multiple fight phases and will generally completely blend them if they get the charge off. Goes very rocket tag, and since the Electros have worse saves against small arms and are slower they usually lose.

Hoping in the codex they get some handy stratagem and are generally not massively nerfed like the Kastys are probably going to. The one stratagem we've seen so far is pretty bad though, 2CP just to change a Canticle mid-turn? If it let you pick an already used one it would be good, but we don't have enough CP to be using them on that kind of stuff.

Back before 8th was officially released, people were making jokes about what units might become OP with the new edition. Some pasta about Nobz in a Naut got stuck (both were very suboptimal units in 7th, in a codex that was widely regarded as one of the worst of 7th)

Guillman has a 3++, why are you even talking about magnus vs guillman without knowing basic facts?'and while you may not take magnus for the buffbubble, Guillman's buffbubble alone is better than anything magnus can do. And all that still ignores guillman's ability to get back up after dying.

Eh, he's not entirely wrong. I like the art piece well enough, but one of the things I hate about the new art- and I think chaos and Admech get the worst of it as they're supposed to be some of the most varied- is how it's repackaged models.

If you look at something from Smith, you feel way more life breathing from the subject. Kopinsky will show you the universe and the setting like in a well placed picture, while England or Blanche, albeit stylised (some argue excessively) will inspire about the tone.
The current crap? Model/Character X doing Y.

I'm not gonna tell you tell you to kill yourself, but he'srightyouknow.jpg

The new art specifically shows dudes from the boxes, and is very uninspired and dull. A lot of the older stuff was brimming with character and inspiration for conversions and did a fantastic job world building.

The older art was the reason 40k evolved as a setting and people made conversions and sculpted, to better attain their vision. There's a reason I've never wanted to convert a warmachine model.

Unfortunately GW has lost their way a bit with trying to "advance a story" driven by herohammer. They had an infinitely large playground to create campaigns and battlefields in and they decided to advance a ludicrous story line driven almost completely by asspulls, and artwork that shows nothing but adjective nounverber *tm firing ineffectually at each other at point blank range.

What are screen units?
and even then, you don't need to even waste your time on death hex, Guillman vs magnus comes down to who gets the charge off. If your casting death hex, it your turn, so you'll already win the fight mathhammer wise. And if it's not your turn, then Guillman will get the charge off and kill magnus.
But that's all besides the point, because
A) if you charge a primarch into another primarch your desperate or retarded
B) Guillman isn't better because of his melee ability, he's good because reroll all hit and wound within 6" for ultras, +1 to advance and charge and reroll morale and hit rolls of 1 for imperium units within 6", a chance to get any command point back on a 5+, and 3 free command points. The fact that he's one of the best melee units in the game is all icing on the cake. His real power comes in making already good units within 6" of him ungodly monsters. That's why he's better than magnus

So am I reading the rules right if I gather that:

That an army just has to consist of detachments for it to be battle forged, and that those detachments just need to abide by their listed restrictions which usually means they need to share at least one faction keyword. So you can somehow have an Imperium detachment and a chaos detachment, and still be battle forged.

Added to this, judging from what I read on transports, I could get a bunch of dedicated transports from one detachment, and then jam whatever units from other detachment into them, regardless of faction keywords.

Am I reading this right? Because usually I'd assume that there'd be no fun allowed, but reading the rules I could find on it over multiple times, it seems like there are endless possibilities for the retarded armies I can make.

not that any amount of mortals could kill Slaanesh, their numbers would honestly just get turned against them in this scenario as more than half of their big anti-daemon gunners fall to Slaanesh the instant they spot Slaanesh since Slaanesh has a literal aura of corruption that affects anyone who sees him

Part of what makes Wraith units so good for soul burst is their natural range is close, as such I don't think it's best to focus on sacrificial units to juice soulburst. Instead just take good units to soulburst off killing the other bastard and your own units will also die naturally. Harlequins are actually pretty good troops in Ynnari, as are bikes of all sorts. A few Kabalites or Rangers to camp objectives make sense as well. Aside from that Wave Sepents are recommended.

I posted these in the /wip/ thread as well. I was dissatisfied with the Berzerkers models so I'm making my own out of them and Blood Warriors. I have seen other people do this but they leave the leather boots alone and that bothered me, so I cut off the boots and swapped them for the Berzerkers lower legs.

I like Bloodborne's design and themes.
I don't know many people IRL aside from myself and my best friend that actually likes Lovecraft's works though.
Also I like blood, both as a theme and a thing. The theme of power in blood is as old as dirt but damn is it one of my favourite themes. Bloodborne takes that theme and adds a dark twist to it by adding a level of grimdark to it, Lovecraft style.
Also cosmic horror is awesome.
Then again I'm a Dark Souls fanboy, I even made Lucius the Eternal in the second game, heavy armor, high dex, high adaptability, high vigor (or vitality whichever one was equip load it's been a while) curved sword in left hand for parry-riposte and notched whip in main hand. That was a fun character, people even emoted applause if they recognised it.

Thousand Sons go down fighting the wolves, but reveal the wolves nature to the Imperium, and expose their Rune Priests as demon humpers. Russ kills Magnus, and as Magnus dies the two finally work out that it was FUCKING Horus who caused all this. Space wolves go traitor, because they are literally khornates the whole time.

Also before Russ dies he thinks that his Legions fetish for wolves is sick, but perishes before he can correct them.

No but seriously because the IG infantry for Cadians hasn't been touched in about 15 years you can buy metal blisterpacks on the gw-site for special weapon dudes.

Slaanesh has a beastgor group, they're called Slaangors.

This is canon and I don't know why.
Anyway Tzaangors are bird-like goatmen, Pestigors are cancer goatmen, Khorngors are dog-like goatmen, and Slaangors are bull-like goatmen which are nearly impossible to tell apart from minotaurs aside from their size.

This isn't a bad thing. They're easier to balance and most of them are broad enough in scope that they can be used as fluff for various factions.

But people would buy more of them if they put actual options in the box.

Can you imagine if instead of 4 different primaris character boxes they'd made one box with enough torsos, heads, and arms to make any of the 4?

yea i'm about to remove the attempt alltogether. fuck trying to fix it.

maybe i can find a decal sheet somwehre. should i keep that eye of horus? (probably not)

it's a decision about list building and strategy, not about how to assemble a model

Is there an FAQ that explains that FNP esque abilities are used on each point of damage?

I pointed out to my friend that you roll to wound, roll save, roll damage because that does "wounds", then roll FNP-esque stuff because that prevents "wounds"

But he wasn't having it

The eye of horus is janky but not as irreparably bad as the skull. Show your decals.

Ask about list building advice, without posting a list....

to be fair, many units cater to one direction over another

Flamers are fine but they don't actually put damage the boltstorms by a huge margin

Their real utility is that they're horrifying anti melee roadblocks, especially when they don't move. if you don't move, you can reliably kill 28 orks in overwatch. They're absurd.

Because no factions have hordes AND vehicles/monsters.

Heavy onslaughts better against everything T5 or below

Macro plasmas okay but the heavy onslaught combos with the rest of the redemptors weapons well

You also don't need a magnet to swap the guns on the model, they're fully swappable out of the box

Savage ork guy does some pretty great non-weathered schemes. This doesn't really look like her painting, however, as it's not quite bright enough.
