Seriously, the Emperor apparently removed all the dangerous memories from Hal and Friends while leaving the ones about him being a massive dick to them and obviously not adhering to their philosophies. The Mechanicus seems to hang together rather well as a whole against outside threats, I can't honestly say that a good Archmagos wouldn't do a decent job if the Mech was equally promoted.
Still, they'd never agree on who and the Imperium would be an even worse dystopia for the common man. Probably best to give him or her or it Malcador's slot instead, they'd be better at family relations than actual Emps.

If you are already a raging autist I would say the god that lets you vent your autism the most is the best. Unlike the emperor who designed primarchs and legions specifically to be psychopaths who flay or hack apart mountains of people and then gets angry when they flay or hack apart mountains of people.

>> No.55278513

Why Sanguinius? He seems rather detached from all the minutiae of running an empire. But I skipped the Imperium Secundus arc so there's a big hole in my knowledge.

Guilliman's a great choice. He's not great at dealing with people so I'd worry about his empire's stability, but he's got logistics down. Horus is almost as good at logistics, but he's also a master diplomat. Dunno if I see him being as effective at economic development. Fulgrim did well on Chemos. A little unstable, and probably bad at delegating, but at least he's proven himself on a planetary level. Magnus and Lorgar would probably decent emperors too. A little too much human sacrifice for the former and resources spent on spiritual stuff with the latter, but their worlds developed nicely.

At least the Imperial Fists were also known as good swordsmen and duellists.

>> No.55280952

>Better than cramming everything into 99X.M41.
I didn't like that, I think GW should have had more events and campaigns focused on the past eg. the War of the Beast, War of Apostasy, the Scouring, or even just making up new events in the "past." So GW could have an event where some Eldar tried to restore the Eldar Empire after the Horus Heresy and include new units and models to represent the greater resources of the short live Neo-Eldar empire. That's that a quick spitballed idea but you get the gist.
>And 6th gave us Astra Militarum and other such great things.
So you agree with me?
>I do hope you were as mad about this as you were when GW didn't in the past give AV to units that were clearly vehicles.
I am. You assume just because I dislike 8th edition that I like everything about previous editions. I think 8th was simply a massive jump in the AoS style changes that have been happening to 40k for a while.

Now figure out how to let Sisters, Tyranids, Tau, etc. take part in those campaigns.

>So you agree with me?

In that GW makes dumb names to protect their IP? Yes. That it's 8e's fault? No.

>You assume

Yes, because people are bitching about it, among other things, and I just want to make sure those people are on the level and aren't just grasping at any straws they can to talk shit about 8e.

Maybe 2 years ago I would have agreed that no moving the timeline and keep AV, but now I don't care anymore. When you have Tau just launching 3rd sphere expansion and are already planning 4th sphere expansion, among everything else GW is cramming into late M41, it's clear that they either retcon everything further back or just move forwards in time. And the more they put out units that are clearly vehicles, but don't use vehicle rules, the less AV means anything, other than "vehicle, but shittier."

This is 3e all over again, nothing more. Give it a few years and we can all bitch about power creep, bloated rules and all that shit once more.

>> No.55281181

>> No.55281206

What did the Word Bearers accomplish? They actually did a great job of achieving their goals. When they were Emperorfags their worlds were the most loyal and devout. When they became Chaosfags they brought planets to "compliance" quicker than all the other legions and started the Heresy that broke the Emperor and his Imperium forever.

>What did the World Eaters accomplish?
Admittedly not much during the Heresy but at least they have the excuse of being mentally retarded ragemonsters. They ripped apart the Ultramar system during the Shadow Crusade. They were at least competent when it came to close quarters brawling so were useful as shock troops.

>What did the Iron Warriors accomplish
They did break in to the Imperial Palace. Perturabo did what Horus asked him to do then flaked off to go kill Fists. The Iron Cage was explicitly stated to be a draw and only the Ultramarines stopped them both from MAD.

None of them are great but the Night Lords brought absolutely nothing of value. They got buttfucked by the Dark Angels then turned around and got buttfucked by the Ultramarines. That's their whole contribution to the Heresy. They weren't even useful as cannon fodder like the WE because they're all insubordinate cowards.

>> No.55281358

>Now figure out how to let Sisters, Tyranids, Tau, etc. take part in those campaigns.
Maybe we could have several smaller campaign. Eldar get updated in the Neo-Eldar Empire campaign set in M32. Sisters get updated in the Age of Apostasy which could also have updates for the Space Wolves and rules for Pre-Sororitas Ecclesiarchal militias which could otherwise be played as Imperial Guard. Tyranids could be updated in some sort of Behemoth campaign which could offer room for rules and models for Space Marines and Orks. Tau could be involved in some sort of early wars or campaigns involving Commander Puretide who is a pretty big deal still considering he was the mentor for both Shadowsun and Farsight.

Or you could just make the campaigns so massive that almost nobody avoids being mentioned.
>Eldar Empire reborn
>Some Imperial systems find themselves attacked by three or more craftworlds at a time
>Frequency of Dark Eldar raids pick up
>Corsairs join forces to create massive pirate fleets
>Imperial Guard, Marines, and other Imperial forces resist as best they can
>Orcs also find themselves under attack as the Eldar conquer all in their path
>Some Necron world awaken early in response to Eldar attempting to preemptively destroy tomb worlds
>Battered CSM legions launch raids against the weakened Imperium, some stop fighting the Imperium to focus their attention on the Eldar seeing them as a larger threat

This could be followed up by a mini campaign to make up for the lack of involvement of the Tyranids, Tau, and Sororitas, perhaps having some sort of campaign where the Ecclesiarchy starts purging a world that had been trading with the Tau and having close diplomatic relations with them, the Tau intervene to liberate the world starting a conflict. The Tyranids show up and the SoB pretend to offer to unite against the Tyranids only to sneak away to leave the xenos and xenos lovers to be consumed by the Tyranids.

I think Kromlech has some half-decent ones. I heard that GW is on another crusade to sue the shit out of third party bits makers like Spellcrow, so gobble up all the jetpacks you can while you can.

I mean, for a given value of "in charge". The Primarchs are all petulant children to a degree so he beseeches Corax and Wolfy McWolfface to stay and given him a damn hand defending a continent's worth of ramparts and they're like "mmm... nah". I think he was in charge of defending the Palace and that was it, he wasn't given the authority to command loyal forces outside that sphere of command.

Doesn't seem that fantastic, honestly. It's like a giant Kataphron Breacher, and it either has 6 plasmagun shots or one boosted lascannon that works out to about equal to two shots. The chance of three or four hull points is probably balanced out by unreliability, low range and the fact you only get one Pen roll, which is what you really need to kill heavy armour.

Granted as a whole it is pretty neat heavy 6 str 7 ap 2 the main issue is its shitty range, it would be a good alternative to the default sicaran if it had a 48" range, the sicaran battle tank is more general purpose, the omega is better for killing marines and terminators.

Taking terminator armour only replaces their power armour. So their grenades and pistol remain. So shouldn't they get +1 attack when using their pistol and force weapon/power maul? And get all the benefits of frag grenades, even though in terminator armour?

Custodes jetbike weapons rules are messed up. The bolt weapon appears to have the wrong name, and it isn’t clear that the upgrade replaces the base weapon. It probably does, but the bike also has the split fire rule which makes no sense.

If a SW Praevian chooses to give his robots LA(SW), they get Furious Charge. He then gets the option to pay +15 points to give the robots Furious Charge. Wut?
How does the SW “one HQ required per 1,000 pts” rule work for >3,000pt armies?
With some of the special characters, it isn’t clear if they count as, say, praetors and benefit from rites of war that affect those unit types.
There’s some confusion with SW weapon upgrades that let you take a frost blade, because “frost blade” is both the generic name for all the types (frost blade, frost axe, frost claw, great frost blade) and also for one of them (the power sword equivalent).

I think the TS have some odd potential interactions with psychic powers, but we’ve mostly decided that some psychic powers are just broken and that’s the way it is. But as has been said, they have a problem with inconsistent wording making it unclear if some of their units roll for their powers or actually choose them.

Angron could have tried not being ugly. If Fulgrim landed on Angron's homeworld he would have been accepted as the son of some nobleman. Hell Chemos was pretty much perpetually starving when he landed so when one member of the party suggested killing him to have one fewer mouth to feed the others killed him.

>So what you're saying is that it's legal?
RAW no. I think that one of two things is likely.
1. Priests of Fenris are supposed to be allowed to take command squads
2. The line existed from a prototype set of rules and was dropped
As for which is more likely it is honestly pure speculation, having access to so many command squad seems like bullshit, but honestly Space Wolves are already pretty bullshit.

>> No.55292430

>How does the SW “one HQ required per 1,000 pts” rule work for >3,000pt armies?

It says it right on the rule: "regardless of the Force Allocation chart being used." The bad part in the wording is that it says 1 per 1,000pts. and then says a 1,001-1,999pts. army would have 2 mandatory HQ. Shouldn't that be 1,001-2,000pts.?

But the real kicker is that the rule uses both "unit" and "choice" when talking about compulsory HQs. They are not the same thing. A praetor with a command squad and a transport is 3 HQ units but 1 HQ choice.

>frost blades

Oh it's even better than that. The Frost Blade section says:
>"Any Space Wolves Independent Character with a power weapon may exchange this for a frost blade or frost claw for +5 points or a great frost blade for +10 points."

There's no way of taking a frost axe. Just a blade or claw for 5pts., and a great blade for 10. Also, the wolf guard terminators can take a frost axe, claw or sword. What is a frost sword? There's rules only for a frost blade.

In the Deathsworn options it says:
>"For every five models in the squad, one model may take one of the following options instead of those previously listed:"

But there are no options listed previously.

Grey Slayer huscarl has to buy his combi-weapon from the unit's allowance, while all the rest of his weapons are independent from what the unit has. So while a unit of 20 can have 4 power fists on the unit and 1 on the huscarl, if the huscarl takes a combi-weapon, the unit can only take 3.

I now want to see someone argue that the Leman Russ tank in their Allied detachment means the dogs can be fielded.

One thing that got me wondering is this bit:
>"If they are chosen as part of the army, they are treated as a HQ choice so far as any special rule, objective or mission is concerned, but do not take up slots on the Force Organisation chart."

Do they count towards the 1 HQ per 1,000pts. limit? Like in a 3,000pts. game can I have like a Priest, a Praetor and the doggos or do I need to get one more HQ?

If you enjoy it, cool, but my group can't even finish a game of HH anymore because the system is a fucking shitstorm. By no means is 8th a perfect game, but it's clearly popular and far more popular than 6th/7th ever was. HH was good because it wasn't 40k, and 8th is good because it's not 7th.

Personally my main draw is the level of customization possible for armies. For example space marines for all intents and purposes have what in a codex would be 15 different HQ choices, furthermore between legion special wargear, relics, rites of war, legiones astartes rules, and special units each legion plays quite differently from each other and has its own feel. This overall allows the armies to be very versatile in supporting your playstle.

All things considered the HH series allowed for much much more diversity with only four real armies than 40k has with like 16 real armies since each legion plays so differently and even within the same legion you can vary your playstyle a ton.

Both 40k and 30k only have a handful of actually unique armies, most are still marines, but 30k makes its marines far more diverse. Among the differences among basic bog standard marines given by Legiones Astartes rules
>+1 WS (on the charge for one legion, in challenges for another, always when armed with swords for a third)
>+1 Initiative (on charges and in challenges)
>+1 Ballistic Skill (with bolters for one legion and at close ranges with another)
>+1 Strength (not affecting instant death)
>+1 Toughness (against shooting for one legion and against flamers for another)
>4+ FnP vs poison and fleshbane
>Roll on 3d6 for leadership tests
>Army wide infiltrate, scout, or tank hunters
Meanwhile Space Wolf grey hunters have the same statline as Ultramarine tactical marines who have the same statline as Dark Angels tacitcal marines who have the same statline as Black Legion chaos space marines.

Even the basic legiones astartes rules allow basic differentiation between armies. EC should generally be mobile and strike to assault their enemy to make the most of their better initiative, meanwhile Imperial Fists have an inherent bias to use bolters because BS 5. However what truly separates 30k from 40k armies is access to rites of war, primarchs, and special wargear to further differentiate between armies of the same legion.

FW's black books aren't really like codices. They're campaign books, like the ones Flames of War uses, or like the Eye of Terror codex from 3rd edition. New lists come out in those books, and new units for old lists.

Every once in a while, those lists get tweaked and consolidated in red books - they function more like codexes, but they're rules only. If you want to play marines, the generic list is "Legiones Astartes - Age of Darkness Army List". Legion-specific stuff for the 13 legions covered by black books 1-5 (not DA, WS, SW, BA, TS) are in "Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Legions".
