Still looking for recommendations:

guardanon from the last thread, the one asking for help making something that's NOT going to win basically every game. Here's what I currently run at 1500 pts(I've yet to play 2000, but I have a baneblade to push up to that.)

Creed(Warlord with +leadership trait)
Commissar Lord - With Power Sword and Plasma Pistol

Conscripts x20
Infantry - chainsword sergeant, voxcaster, plasma gun, 7x lasgun
Infantry - chainsword sergeant, voxcaster, plasma gun, 7x lasgun

Knight-Commander Pask: In leman russ battle tank with lascannon, heavy bolters, heavy stubber
>Heavy Support:
Leman Russ: lascannon, heavy bolters, heavy stubber
Leman Russ: lascannon, heavy bolters, heavy stubber
Heavy Weapons Squad: 2x lascannon, 1x heavy bolter
Heavy Weapons Squad: 2x lascannon, 1x heavy bolter
Wyvern: heavy flamer

Company Commander: Plasma Pistol
Callidus Assassin
Vindicare Assassin
Colour Sergeant Kell
Ordnance Commander
Command Squad - 4x Plasma Gun

>General tactics: Keep all the guardsmen blobbed, deepstrike vindicare and callidus to snipe out HQs and bubbles, keep wyvern and russes in the very back, not moving, in order to just snipe out everything

Like I said last thread, I'm looking for tactics that remain fair. I use all the named characters mostly because that's what I have. I'm still pretty limited in what I have access to. Aside from what I have listed, I have a chimaera left to build, more footslogging infantry, and a lot of different special weapons, as well as conversions to turn the battle tanks into demolishers. My locals is pretty diverse, ranging from marines and CSMs to eldar, nids, genestealers, and orks, as well as a SoB player, some chaos daemons, and a DE player.

It's also fucking expensive. A squadron of them is 426pts, for that price, why not just take a pair of laspred ? You get more fire power at longer range for less points.

So, my FLGS is holding a neat event in October. You build a space marine scout with up to 100 points of ANY gear you want, from any codex or index (so long as it is modeled on the mini) and see how many poxwalker zombies he can kill before he goes down. Other limitations: no Fly keywords and up to 3 pieces of 0-point gear. So, no jumppack and no 20 bolt pistols. Seems anything else is available, including relics and the like.

There's nothing super major on the line - it's mostly for fun - but it got me thinking. At first I considered a storm shield, two lightning claws, two assault cannons and a heavy flamer, but that's just from the Space Marines armory. What do you think would be effective to use and/or cool to model?

plague crawler is cheaper than a quad las pred which trades a reduced wounding capability for increased resilience.

You get +1T, +1W, a 5++ and a 5FNP

plague crawler = .027 dmg per point

Indecisive anon again. So I've done some thinking, and I can't abide with the Xeno love of Stygies in the fluff. That just seems so near-heretical, to me.

I think I'll do Lucius instead, since I think deep striking is cooler than infiltrating any day of the week. I'll just have to eat that loss of -1 to hit with my pride. That being said, I'm not too sure where I should build from what I have. Plus it's not like there's 'fluffy units' to use really. I really want to use some Corpuscarii Priests but goddamn they're expensive and the torsos on the model are ass.

What I have

20 Skitarii, 10 scouts (4 arquebus), 10 vanguard (2 arc rifle, 2 plasma)
2 Dunecrawlers, 1 icarus, 1 neutron

I can work a good 800 points or so out of this in a battalion. I wanna hit a good 1000. What should I add? I know everyone loves Kastelans but I can't seem to find a decent enough price for them around.

>> No.55531736

I hear Neutron lasers are pretty good.
If you're only just getting started you might want to assemble them as 5 rangers and 5 vanguards,
certainly give the vanguards the plasma and the rangers the Arquebus.
Ideally though you'd get 2 more squads of skitarii so you could give each unit all the same weapon.

I had a hilarious game today. Me with scions vs Dark Angels, 1500 points.
Tempestor prime, Inquisitor Greyfax, 30 scions, crassus armored assault transport, knight Acheron, stormhawk interceptor, vs Azreal, Asmodai, 5 deathwing knights, 6 aggresors, a redeptor, land raider crusader, and darkshroud speeder thing.
I got wiped but it was great. The crassus ran over a terminator, the tempestor prime killed Asmodai in close combat, the scions all got gimped, but the knight was the funniest thing and the center of the game.
Turn one I walked it up and blew up the darkshroud because it worried me, but that was a mistake. The knight took the entire army's shooting square in the face, easily a thousand points worth, rerolling misses from Azreal and getting +1 rend for ever wound roll of 6. It went from 27 wounds to 8 in that one phase. Then it walked over and engaged the redeptor dreadnought and was reduced to 4 wounds in overwatch. It smacked a couple more wounds off the redeptor but didn't finish it. The redeptor got to attack and it had to do 4 damage to the knight, but it only managed to do 2 wounds to my raucous cheering, so the knight killed it then made a charge against the last aggressor and Azreal, killing the former but died to the latter.
The stormhawk did nothing.

I have 3 Neutron Lasers, but mostly because they are great anti tank/large and I run a lot of Vanguard.If you plan to run a lot of Arc/Destroyers you might want to get one Icarus Array early to spam those flyers.

Today on Contextless Mathhammer: What's the best way to bring down a Warlord Battle Titan without another equivalent in its weight class?

As it turns out, a Warlord Battle Titan's equivalent in points of Malefic Lords does just enough damage from Smite to kill it in one turn, not counting degradation!

If you do count degradation, it takes 82 Malefic Lords (down from 133) to take it down, which comes out to 2460 points, or 61.5% of the WBT's cost in points.

Of course, the Warlord can fight back. But its most efficient anti-infantry loadout, being a Reaver Gatling Blaster and two Warlord Gatling Blasters, scores a grand total of 90 hits on the Lords (this is assuming they were all in one unit to be shot at, of course, which won't be the case since they're characters). Even if this was the case, though, wounding on 2s (the gatlings' S8 just clears the threshold against the MLs' T4) and hitting on 2s (we're ignoring degradation, let's say the WBT goes first), once it runs up against the MLs' 4++ each shot only has a slightly higher than 1/3 chance of wounding them, which would bring the number of wounding shots all the way down to 30. What's more, the gatlings are all D3, which falls shy of downing the MLs' 4W in one shot each, meaning that this missed threshold essentially doubles the required number of shots to kill the pesky little psykers. Perhaps if they start from a far enough range that they'll lose a significant amount of their ranks before reaching Smite range things will go badly for the MLs, but things are not looking bright for the big guy.

is this true

>> No.55532953

And then, if you really want to put the nail in the poor little titan's coffin, note that Malefic Lords are Characters, and so can only be targeted if they are the closest unit -- one at a time. Despite the apocalyptic number of shots the WBT can dish out, they must be allocated to individual units, and they come from only 3 total guns -- which cannot pierce the MLs' invulnerable save unless they inflict mortal wounds, which can only happen on rolls of 6 for a few of the WBT's guns.

So with each ML putting out 0.55 to 1.38 wounds on the WBT depending on degradation, and the titan only being able to kill three of them per turn (it'll kill 'em dead, though), the backwater insane cultists prove more than a match, in numbers, to the mighty god-machine. Because if they're fielding one of those, they give up their right to complain when you run a Conscript blob's worth of psykers. As little as 45 of them can ruin the WBT in two turns, at a measly 34% of the cost!

In fact the warlord will only be able to target the closest ML in each shooting phase so its guns are actually even less effective. the only real chance of killing the ML's is in combat.

That is a good point, my friend. This contextless simulation is assuming all the MLs are simultaneously in range of the WBT, which is a stretch to be sure. Both gatlings have a whopping 72" range to add to the WBT's natural (pre-degradation) 18" move, which happens to be the same as Smite's maximum range! However, as you mentioned, it can still only kill up to 3 per round (in melee, it can launch up to 20 attacks, but that won't help much against spread-out characters). If the MLs fan out and run at the WBT, it can only kite them for so long, depending on deployment, until it runs out of room and has to face the music, coming in this case in the form of a screaming mob of brainwashed morons hurling bolts of warp fire, of which, for all its continent-razing firepower, it inexplicably will take over 15 turns to fully eliminate.

So if you're ever at our FLGS and some FINE GENTLEMAN who took out a mortgage to buy a Warlord Battle Titan and possibly have it painted is grinning and offering people to try a nice friendly narrative game, just borrow some Conscripts, toss them as count-as Malefic Lords, and be sure to have a mug handy to collect his tasty, tasty tears as his 4000 pint monstrosity gets mindbullet'd to hell.

Ultramarines of course are a special case as usual. Sons serving in the Ultramarines is a high honour for a family

It's not really a special case for a family to be considered honoured to have a son become a space marine. Sure Ultramar has infinitely better information on their citizens than random deathworld number: 98234, so their families will actually be informed that they've been selected, but that isn't something that is unique to Ultramar in the slightest.

Artemis just got a new model in 40k last year, and Covenant, Josef and one of the Rogue Traders were in a new novel from last month.

He may be coming in 28mm form as a "Wait, why didn't you release this with the codex" AM release.
