So if my points are right, and I don't think they are so I gave myself some wiggle room. This is supposed to be an Ordo Malleus Inquisitorial Warband. Voldus is my counts-as Inquisitor.

IG Battalion - Stormtroopers
2x Tempestor Prime - Command Rod
10x Scions - Vox, 4x Plasma, Tempestor with plasma pistol
10x Scions - Vox, 4x Meltaguns, Tempestor with plasma pistol
10x Scions - Vox, 4x Volleyguns, Tempestor with plasma pistol
2x Taurox Prime - Volleyguns and Gatling gun

GK Vanguard
Voldus - Hammerhand, Vortex, Gate (my inquisitor)
Apothecary - Warding Stave, Gate
Paladin Ancient - Gate
Paladin Squad - 3x with Falchions, Paragon with Hammer, Hammerhand

IG Vanguard
Commissar Lord - Plasma Pistol, Power Maul
Ministorum Priest (the crusader captain, essentially)
10x Crusaders (melee specialists)
5x Ratlings (infantry snipers)
2x Valkyrie - Lascannons and Hellstrikes

I think its like 1997 points

Just had my third game of 40k. Only 30 power level and objective was just to kill eachother.

Was Death Guard vs Scions.

DG List was:
Lord with Fist and Plasma Pistol
Foul Blightspawn (Meme Flamer guy)
5 Plague Marines with 2 plasma and 1 blight launcher
20 poxwalkers
1 Bloat Drone

Scions list was:
Tempestor Prime
10 Guardsmen with flamer
3x5 squads of scions with random mix of flamer, plasma and melta
Scout Sentinel with multi-laser and hunter killer
1 Taurox prime with gatling gun and hot shot guns.
1 Taurox prime with battlecannon and stormbolter and hot shot guns.

Death Guard won in the end. Had Lord with 4 wounds and 2 Plague Marines alive.

Poxwalkers and Bloat Drone died very fast. Scions melted fast too, 3 alone to morale.

Flamer Death Guard guy was hilarious, did something like 15 wounds in the game. Killed commisar who charged him (very bad idea) and degraded both taurox's before being gunned down.

Move them down to mediocre. Too expensive for how little offense they have, while being 2W wonders.

Lord of Changes (or any Greater Daemon sans Bloodthirsters imo) were never worth it without sinking 40pts in for two Greater Daemonic Gifts.

And right now LoC are in an akward spot of supposed to be the Pyschic Powerhouse... but he's just a shittier Bloodthirster.

But yup. Tzeentch got shit on. Tho with 60pts for 20 Wounds and Magnus being a TZEENTCH DAEMON, Tzeentch still does strong in tournaments.

The whole point of carnifexes is that, despite their size compared to the larger creatures like Trygons or Haruspexes, they are many times stronger.

Furthermore, do not include any units with the Fortification Battlefield Role unless they have a unit embarked inside – even the most formidable bastion requires a garrison if it is to pose a threat.’

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

Also Leviathans are shit. They're just expendable meatshields. Having a whle army oriented around them would be incredibly boring. If Dreadnoughts had the same love that power armor 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 Dreadnought talon is a cheaper and arguably better source of anti infantry fire power than the other units.

I'm so tired of hearing non FW players complain about "muh recasts or muh overpriced resin" They're there in the index, they have a purpose, just like the GWs.source then any of the plastic models. 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 got this idea from gundam ibo and the Brewers and Dawn Horizon Corps. Pirates who wouldnt be too far off from 40k. One way to get plenty of easy disposable cannon fodder is to kidnap and enslave children and break their wills.

How fanaticals are they. One pilot fought the protagonist with no regards to his own safety even though his cockpit is damage and his mech is badly damaged as he is cut down like the rest of the debris sent to fight him

I have two kheres/fist contemptors and they are great alone or as a pair. Solid move, sturdy, hard hitting and great anti infantry dakka. The multi melta isnt bad either with his bs 2+. Especially hanging out near your captain.

They're surprisingly cheap points wise too. I'm a fan. Im sure mortis pattern ones are solid too, but I've not used one.

Unless you're running naked tacticals, they really aren't. 205 points for a 10 man squad with 20 wounds, a power sword and a grenade launcher isn't ridiculous.

>You need to use them aggressively to take midfield objectives while also dealing damage.

That's exactly how you use them, they're both screen and objective grabbers. That's why stalkers don't really mesh with them very well.

Its not like marines don't have a ton of other shit that wants to sit on a deployment zone objective anyway.

What do you do when someone is a smug judgmental prick about other people's paint jobs, but is actually an awful painter and modeler themselves?

>> No.55704594

Scouts are better as you can roadblock the objective with your 250 sq mm vs 160 sq mm and also can roadblock infiltrators

Let's be real here, chads have the best bolter wound value, but if the goal is to actually remove an objective from the game so hard the enemy can't ever get it, there are way better options, and the lack of objsec will be irrelevant

This is why scouts and tacs are better, they actually have very useful options other than sit and bolter. All marine troops are pretty shit, which is why a lot of tournament lists just skip them altogether

You converted 1.5k points of 7th into 2k points of 8th and then deducted the full 200 points of 8th from the converted 1.5k instead of the 150 points it would be. You are fucking retarded.

Also 7th points costs are completely irrelevant in the first place, nobody goes by that measurement at all, they take 8th on its own relative terms with other 8th ed points costs.

You're not wrong that Intercessors are bad but your reasoning is total ass and you're probably still shit at the game.
