Are Eldar WASP Walker's worth while for their cost over Warwalkers? Deepstrike is pretty nice, though with the range generally you have IDK. But moving to fast attack frees up heavy support for something else, maybe some fire prisms.

So /tg/, redpill me on Primaris Aggressors. I play DA and have been pretty much indifferent about primaris so far, as I'm quite attached to my marinlets and have no desire to see them replaced.

aggressors are more like tactical termies without deepstrike than devastators

their slow speed and shirt range means they are usually a defensive unit (exception being infiltrating with the RG stratagem). if you have a anti-tank azrael firebase, aggressors could be both a countercharge unit and an anti-horde option that your heavy guns cant deal with. they also really love azraels invul aura.

if you arent building around the one super powerful DA special character, i doubt they're going to do much for you. they arent very popular among the codex chapters for a reason

GW left a loophole:


"There are a few options that are missing in the codex that appear in the index: why is that? Does that mean I can’t use these models in my army anymore?
While the indexes are designed to cover a long history of miniatures, the codexes are designed to give you rules for the current Warhammer 40,000 range. There are a few options in the indexes for some Characters and vehicles that are no longer represented in the Citadel range – certain Dreadnought weapons that don’t come in the box, or some characters on bikes, for example.
Don’t worry though, you can still use all of these in your games if you have these older models. In these instances, use the datasheet from the index, and the most recent points published for that model and its weapons (currently, also in the index).
They still gain all the army wide-bonuses for things like Chapter Tactics and can use Space Marines Stratagems and the like, so such venerable heroes still fit right in with the rest of your army."

Not yet? The Carnifex Brood box still ships with 60mm round bases. But then, Warriors ship with 40mm or 50mm depending on whether you get the standalone box or the (soon to be replaced with genestealers) Start Collecting. Basically GW cares a whole lot less about base sizes than any of its players since... possibly since forever, but at the very least since Wrathmongers and Blightkings.

If they do get an upgrade I doubt it'll be Trygon sized, but one of the slightly smaller oval bases first seen in Deathstorm, 70x105mm.

So you're going to want to download the new rulebook out of the megaupload link in the first post and have a read of it, because the rules have changed a wee bitty bit since 4th... back then, as I recall, the only thing that could cause you to use anything other than the Bog Standard Force Organisation Chart was playing a narrative mission, or Apocalypse.

What we have now is twelve universal Detachments, each with its own Force Organisation Chart, which you can mix and match to squeeze your army into a legal organisation. One of the twelve is the Super-Heavy Auxiliary Detachment, whose Force Organisation Chart is literally just "1 Lord of War," no frills, no bonuses.

>Over the long millennia since the Fall, the clans of Saim-Hann have temporarily allied themselves to many other Aeldari factions. The Seer Councils of the major craftworlds have all attempted to sway their Saim-Hann cousins to join their own particular cause at some point or another, as they place a great value on the martial skill of the Wild Riders. Such entreaties have resulted in many significant triumphs for the Asuryani as a whole, but the obstinate and principled personality of the Saim-Hann people means these alliances often end in frustration. For example, the Wild Rider clans often join the warhosts of Biel-Tan in cleansing aliens from maiden worlds, but, because they find the extreme xenophobia of the Swordwind and its willingness to slaughter non-combatants distasteful, the coalition rarely lasts beyond the defence of the planet in question. The Saim-Hann Asuryani will also lend their strength to Ulthwé, where the cause is obvious, but they quickly grow wary of manipulations and baulk at attacking unprovoked foes, regardless of what future outcomes the seers of the Damned claim hinge upon doing so.

Drazhar: 15 points cheaper. In addition, overwatch rolls may not be taken when this unit charges, and he gains Rampage
Urien Rakarth: 12 points cheaper
Lelith hesperax: 15 points cheaper, +1 T, no drugs

<KABAL> Units:
Kabalite warriors: take a heavy weapon on 9 models
Raider: give them splinter racks again

<WYCH CULT> Units:
Wyches: +1 A on a charge
Hekatrix Bloodbrides: +1 A on a charge, 3 Melee weapons available on a base unit, 5 on a unit of 10
Hellions: Deep strike, at the cost of -1 to hit on arrival
Reaver Jetbikes: -5 PPM

<COVEN> Units:

Talos Pain Engine: Gains FLY, -1 Leadership
Chronos Parasite Engine: Gains FLY, Adds 1 to all saving throws for units within 6" of this unit

(idea for a stratagem: Dark Artisan: -1 CP: Select 1 TALOS PAIN ENGINE model, 1 CHRONOS PARASITE ENGINE, and 1 HAEMONCULUS within 3 inches of each other. They are treated as a solitary unit. In addition, the Haemonculus loses his CHARACTER keyword while in this unit.)

Incubi: Overwatch rolls may not be taken when this unit charges.


splinter cannon: 3 points cheaper
heat lance: range increased to 20", point cost reduced by 3
Disintegrator cannon: point cost reduced by 5
Shredder: D6 hits. Automatically hits if the targeted unit has more than 8 models
liquifier gun: strength 4 base

Chain Flails: on a wound roll of 6, the AP value is changed to -2
Huskblade: on a wound roll of 6, inflict a mortal wound in addition to its normal wound.
Ichor Injector: change 6+ roll to D6 mortal wounds instead of D3
Macro-scalpel: Remove extra attacks with only 1 macro scalpel, instead change AP modifier to -3 base.

>It can be said in general that the Aeldari of Saim-Hann are not as concerned about the galaxy’s lesser races as other craftworlders are. There are exceptions, however. The Wild Riders do not hunt for pleasure, but all clans will attack any Ork colonies they locate, launching hit-and-run missions to thin the greenskins numbers and eliminate their largest and most formidable leaders. An ever deeper contempt is reserved for the Necrons; even the least clue as to the whereabouts of those ancient foes is enough to mobilise the Wild Riders for a hunt. Unlike the Orks, whose numbers are merely culled, Necrons are destroyed utterly and their tomb worlds extinguished. To the Imperium, who do not understand the disparate Wild Rider clans, the people of Saim-Hann remain an enigma, as likely to ally with them as they are to ignore or even assail them.

Aledari are racist against green and old people. Truly, they are the worst.

If you're only going to rune one Grav tank, make it a Falcon. Transport capacity, Webway Strike/Fire and Fade synergy, and weapons make it a great support gunboat.

>he sixth wave of the Blood Crusade stabs into the galactic west, its forces materialising upon planets to wreak havoc. On the Imperial planet of Upsilon, one of the outermost bastions of Terra’s defences, the armies of Khorne are fought to a standstill. It is not Mankind’s defensive fortresses or walls that ultimately impede the slaughter, however, but the Wild Riders of Saim-Hann. No less than five entire clans descend into the maelstrom. The streams of jetbikes weave in between the wreckage of broken bunkers and smashed gun towers to pour devastating fire upon the massed Bloodletters before darting away. Baying with rage, the murderous Daemon hosts charge over and over but fail to reach their fleet foes. As the Daemons leave in frustration to find easier prey, the Asuryani too disperse, without a word to the stunned human survivors.

Orks and Tyranids combine their forces to stall the Blood Crusade, while the Eldar on their own stalled the Blood Crusade.

Where are the insane tech priests stipped of all the limiting factors of their faith and heirachy, free to do whatever untold horrors their skills allow them to do in a realm where the normal laws of the universe no longer apply?

I would say the milestones are MkII, IV and VII. II was the best at the time and had user comfort as its main benefit. It's still held as a great suit, but it's resource and maintenance heavy due to its construction. MkIV was built on what was learned from the MkII as an easier to make and maintain suit with all the latest bells and whistles in it. MkVII is what the MkVI was suppose to be, before it was pressed into service, which is why the two are very interchangeable and why MkVI still continues in service. MkVI/VII took what lessons were learned from the MkIV, mainly that fancy parts aren't always available, so the suits are able to use simpler technologies to repair them.

I feel your pain, but the ideal solution is that GW prints out rules for those models in chapter approved and integrates them into the codex, while banning all indexes with codex updates. Right now, RAW, you can just ignore any nerf in the codex by using the index version, because of how vaguely the rule is worded.

Also, having past versions of the units still be legal ruins GW's ability to balance the game. What if the overpowered aspect of a unit is an index weapon option? Right now, GW has no way to nerf that short of increasing its point cost, which nerfs it for every unit.

As a primarily cult player, here are my thoughts:
Shouldn't be punished to melee only rerolls. No other army is restricted this way. I mean fuck, Necrons get +1 hit that extends to melee with MWBD. Deldar are extremely competitive amongst themselves, and being around their leader should reflect that. Rerolling 1s to hit and wound in both melee and shooting wouldn't break the game for a T3 6+ melee unit. Hellions and Reavers have better shooting, but they're often out of range because of their speed.

They should also get Dodge and No Escape. They're fast enough to fall back, shoot, and assault in the same turn, but they can't stop a few tau from moonwalking out of combat or dodge some IG squad leader with a power sword? I also feel 17pts is a bit high. Maybe 15 pts would do them a world of good because they do hurt when they get there. Deepstriking is a yes, though why the -1 to hit? It's ok for CSM to Deepstrike a billion combi-plasma, but a bunch of T3 5+ dudes with 2 poison shots is imba enough to warrant a -1 hit? Come on now.
Side note, I think a Strat to let their D2 damage spill over would be fucking hot. Call it Hellish Slaughter. (or give it to them on the charge, but that might be greedy. Still T3 5+ though)

Currently, the Hydra Gauntlets are the only weapon worth taking. Again. Rerolling wounds is significant forna base S3 melee unit. On top of that, the Shardnet doesn't even have rules because they just copied the Impaler from the succcubus profile, which means the shardnet+impaler combo doesn't grant an extra attack like the others, and the D2 doesn't make up for it in the slightest (if wounds carried over it might). Likewise, rerolling 1s to hit and wound are pointless when the Succubus already does that for the unit and hydra gauntlets reroll all wounds, so the razorflails are shit. The SnI should either spill over its damage or give a bonus/penalty to no escape and/or hit, and the razor flail should have better AP.

They should be like your kabalites and get weapons 3 in 9, or really just 1 for every 3 in the unit, like Reavers. I think dodge should apply against any unit within like 6" of them, not just melee. They're close enough to reflexively get out of the way. It also gets around why they can dodge a Keeper of Secrets attacking them, but not a guardsmen with a Las Pistol.

Definitely need to be cheaper, though W2 has helped them a lot. As silly as this is, I think they need a speed boost. They should be faster than wind riders, while giving up their Dodge and No Escape for pure speed. Giving them a minimum charge distance would be interesting, too.

Spend your time instead in prayer for our rumored January codex drop, reflection on the best way to serve the Immortal God-Emperor of All Mankind with different army configurations, and diligent study of ebay to improve thy covenant's battle-craft.

Not enough variety for the 3 armies
>Kabal should be all about weapons and vehicles, at the cost of durability
>Cult should be all speed and horde at the cost of ranged damage
>Coven should be tough and have a lot of morale fuckery, at the cost of speed

Wych weps need changing: Bridges should be able to take 4 weps per 5 like Trueborn, Reavers need to be cheaper, drugs need to be a buyable upgrade per unit for non Wych armies or a Kabal that isn't led by THE DUKE
There's a lot that could be done

It's not 7th anymore, so I thought now might be a good time to do the Iyanden force I had my eye on for a bit in 6th.

Because chaos gear HAS to be weak, ugly versions of Glorious Imperial Things. GW devs are far more interested in seeming clever to co-workers than in impressing customers with their knowledge of grimdark and underatanding of game balance.

This is known.

I thought GW removed options from the Space Marines codex that did not have any official model.

So what is the official model for a Chapter Champion that wields two swords?
Why would they remove any options for Company Champions even though the kit which includes a Company Champion has quite a lot of options?

Second question was rhetorical. I am frustrated by the lack of options for some of the models.

The only model for a Chapter Champion that's ever been released: https://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/Space-Marine-Marneus-Calgar-and-Honour-Guard
Yes, it's an Ultramarine. No, there's no generic equivalent. Yes, you can just kitbash a plastic one together out of whatever left and right-handed power swords you can find.

GW dilettantes stole all their everything from actually talented people and now claim it as "their" IP. It isn't fair that any actually talented people later made money by producing grimdark things GW did not, so someone must now pay - and that someone is customers because fuck those assholes for supporting us AND ChapterHouse.

Company Champions have never had options though. They've always been "Pay x points (usually 15) and turn a veteran into a company champion. Company champions get a power sword and a combat shield. They also get rule x". There is a head, chest-plate, power sword and a shield in the kit that is fairly clearly meant to be a company champion. They were not customisable after becoming a champ because they were no longer a "veteran" which were what could get further customisation options.
