You can faggot, its in there for no reason other than convenience. Well and maybe buffing things. Nurgle Daemons got cheaper and or straight up better in the DG book compared to Index.

I think their inclusion even makes things worse, since it constantly confuses people.

What you can do with Nurgle Daemons from Codex or Index: Summon them or run a separate detachment. That's it. Them being included in the Death Guard codex lets some people to think that they can be part of a Death Guard detachment, but they're wrong for thinking that.

What's the best way to build a cultist blob?

The box from GW is 65 dollarydoos for 20 (plus a nice CSM champion) but is half autoguns half pistols, when I want all autoguns.

The GSC neophyte hybrids would be fantastic, and even come with a heavy stubber, but 70 dollarydoos for 40 points of guys is ridiculous.

The Guard boxes are $48 for 10, and the plastic catachans might make for a decent conversion. Actually finding boxes would be the real challenge.

I kinda want to get this mentality out that having a single Forge World unit is "OP". It's not. They're GW's TEQ. It's fair if they can have one if you bring some Assassins or Guilliman. If they bring multiple and in the Supreme Command Detachment, then yes that is pretty cheesy.

Also R&H are shit. They're just expendable meatshields. Having a whole army oriented around them would be incredibly boring. If traitor Guard had the same love that Conscripts then that would be fine.

A "fun" army to play against is something that tries to bring all the neat units into the battle in a combined arms fashion. Not just spamming any one single unit. A good FW player would know that some well supported Stormraven squadron is a cheaper and arguably better source of anti infantry fire power than the other units.

I'm so tired of hearing poorfags complain about "muh Malefic Lords or muh Leviathans" They're there in the index, they have a purpose, just like the Stormravens.source then any of the FW units. Just because you get butthurt at the cheesemongers doesn't mean that the other FW players have to stop using a particular unit. Quit bitching.

I don't understand how people can have unpainted armies. There are ways to put color on them in 2 minutes that looks pretty good with minimal effort - even with minimal detailing and some basing these marines already look good. Painting guard is as easy as priming green or tan and washing them with agrax or nuln oil. How can people be so god damned lazy?

Painting intimidates people. Most players these days don't do any shit like 40k outside of 40k itself, especially given the rise of Xwing. Nobody wants to take to the field with a model they spent hours on that they know looks like shit.

Others like myself are fucking perfectionists and absolutely will not field a unit without it being fully painted to a bearable standard. Cheap tactics to get them to tabletop standard don't cut it. Of course there's a strong divide here between people who will eventually paint their shit, no, really, so just let them play with gray/black primed shit, and people who do actually paint, just at a slow pace while they satisfy their autism in getting every detail just right. They never play though

Not to mention he doesn't take care of his minis. Then he had the balls to ask me if I'd paint his Bloodthirster for him. I was not going to put effort into something that'd be tossed into a 3'x2' tub and broken probably after the first use. He's a good friend, but that shit infuriates me.

Here's a handy guide on how to paint your first model, anon! Follow this guide in the order it has been writte:

Get primed model, paint, brush, water and pallet ready
Load brush with base coat, place onto pallet, thin it down
Wipe off excess paint from brush, twist to give it a nice good tip
Grab model and hold it close to your eye level, abut 12-18 inches away
Bring brush to model, be ready and eager to give it two thin coats
Place brush on model and start to drag it towards the edge of the surface

The small bursts of satisfaction from completing paint projects are one of my few pleasures.

Just put away all the shit that isn't painted except one unit, or even one model. Whatever you're most excited about, whatever you'd like to paint most, whatever you'd like to see looking cool and painted - ride that interest to painting town and repeat.

Helps if you can get a buddy and bully each other into finishing stuff and show each other your WIPs for CnC.

Just make progress, it doesn't matter how much or on what. When you finish something, use it in a game and enjoy that feeling, then pick your next thing you want painted. Eventually you'll stop wanting to even use things you haven't painted yet, and the urge to use something on the tabletop will be pushing you to paint things you acquire.

It's because the RG stratagem lets you pop up after deployment but before the first turn begins, like old school Infiltrate. You can still act normally on your turn, including movement, unlike Deep Strike/Teleport Strike/Jump Pack Assault/etc. which has you pop up and the end of the Movement Phase and therefore unable to close that 9" gap.

That's what makes it so good. AL can do it too since Forward Operatives is literally as much a copypaste as their legion tactic is.

Right, they could only infiltrate chosen.

I just remembered the real killers were Ymgarl Stealers. Your opponent could pick any piece of area terrain and secretly mark they were hiding in it, and at any time on their turn they could pop out of it and REE you to death. An extremely potent psychological warfare weapon, as if you wanted your infantry to remain unmolested by stealers, you basically had to just steer clear of any area terrain, not knowing where they might be.

Yeah it seems like international shipping is actually quite pricey, there isn't a single store that really does cheap international shipping from UK/EU/AU to western hemisphere.

But the issue is a lot of FW kits sit above that line, like in the 75-150 area, and they don't give you the free shipping until you hit that massive 300+ mark.

No. It's because they are efficient in their design. They pay points for good armor, shooting skill and not much else. This means that the get to have the almost the same shooting output as marines and almost the same durability at a much lower cost. Sure they're kinda bad in melee, but Tacticals are really that great either and so pay a lot of points for marginal melee ability they dont get much use out of. On top of this their favored weapons of flamers and melta cover pretty much all damage types and their short range is ameliorated by the mechanized style Sisters have always favored. On top of this the Immolator has consistently be a solid choice for mechanized armies. Generally comparing favorably with the Razorback. In addition Acts of faith usually add a meaningful bonus that compares favorable with Marine chapter tactics. So ultimately Sisters aren't super flexible, but what they do they do well and EFFICIENTLY.

8th ed. Sisters have a little extra juice because Celestine is so amazing and this iteration of AoF is very strong and flexible.

Well, that's my point. In 7th, Sisters were a completely monobuild and generally underwhelming army with an okay gimmick in AoF.
Now, all of their options are generally good. Storm bolters are the prize pick now, and their access to them as special weapons is something other armies envy. I've had good results spamming them in bolter blobs, and the word is that storm bolter Dominion spam is just excellent, which I can see being the case considering I also play GK and the amount of firepower a 5-man squad of storm bolters can put out is very pleasing. Having that for nearly half price per model is very powerful. And also Celestine is just retardedly good. A shame Imperial soup players have been cherrypicking her and she'll probably get nerfed.

I did put a base coat on two dudes like last week I think.

I do like the Cata claws more than I thought I would, though if I'm being honest, I only went with Cataphractii because I could switch to axes a lot easier than on Tartaros because FW makes an upgrade to the plastic kit. However, I didn't know they lacked the upper shoulder pad, so now I have 10 axes I haven't touched because I need 10 left upper pads.

For the updates, they've so far done...
Marines: PRIMARIS EVERYWHERE, many new sub command units like the lieutenant
Chaos: New rubric and plague marines and Exalted Champions
GK: Reboxed Voldus on his own, GM in a Baby Carrier, Chaplains
Admech: Access to their other factions and individual cawl. Forgeworld tactics

So based on this...

Eldar I'm not sure if they'd go with the reboxing of the triumvirate, since it's all eldar. I would think they might release Eldrad finally outside of the box set. He is craftworld after all. Oh, and craftworld rules obviously.

Guard will see all their new sub faction rules come to life - as far as new units, I have no idea.

Oh, so you have enough time to assemble all your miniatures, and also to play games that are hours long, but not to prime them and drag a wash-laden brush over them? Ok, sure.

About a couple hours for several squads. With my schedule painting a single miniature takes minimum 3 days.

Hahahah, oh I wish. I haven't had time to play any games at all for the past 2 weeks.
>And even guard, nids, and orks can be painted to minimal tabletop standards with the above method in a couple of hours

you should use revolting resilient on your warlord because iirc the suppurating plate gives mw for EVERY save made during the fight phase which should include that. I don't know why you have ranged plague marines with power fists tho when the rest of the unit is going to do very poorly in melee. Also plague wind is a top tier spell for melting hordes, and your demon prince needs to know miasma of pestilence to boost his survivability.

Never built a Space Marine army before, but I went halves in a Primaris vs Death guard box so I'll use the chadmarines to fill in points.
