For 2x20 Termagaunts (both groups with 10 devourers and 10 fleshborers) and 1x20 Hormagaunts with Toxin sacs should I go with 2 Tervigons or 1? I think 2 would be best as I can keep both Termagaunt groups full strength and throw psychic powers around on the Hormagaunts as needed.

Full List:
Tervigon 1 bare bones
Tervigon 1 bare bones

I wish they would flesh out the other chapters more. Imperial Fists have awesome lore and looks, but their rules are so shit what's the point? They're basically just 'generic SM #3' while Dark Angels, Blood Angels, Space Wolves, and Ultras get all the goodies. (And then there's Iron Hands, but who the fuck plays Iron Hands?)

I would love it if they were ever to release Dorn, to make it so the last wall protocol was enacted so players could pick from any Imperial Fists successor to pair them all together. It would be fluffy, allow more customization, and look amazing.

It would also put them nearly on par with the snowflake chapters, but they'd still be massively lacking in special characters and such.

I'm not sure what they could do with the Iron Hands. Maybe allow them to work with a new sub-chapter made of the zombies from after Istvaan?

I'm guessing Blood Angels will get bonuses on charge while Dark Angels will get a copy paste of the ability the Fallen get:

>You can re-roll hit rolls of 1 for any Fallen unit when shooting (including when firing Overwatch) as long as the unit did not move in its last Movement phase. In addition, Fallen units can never lose more than one model as the result of any single failed Morale test; any additional casualties beyond the first are ignored.

It's pretty much an updated Grim Resolve.

A few changes in a couple of units. Points moving to match the vanilla codex.

No Sammael in Sableclaw in the codex

Black knights and deathwing terminators may now be upgraded to a command squad (1 per army) this basically gives them the bodyguard ability.

Now the juicy stuff


And they shall know no fear

Inner circle
This unit automatically passes morale checks. In addition it may reroll at to hit rolls against Heretic Astartes and all to hit and to wound rolls against Fallen in the fight phase

If this unit moves it gains a 6+ invulnerable save to all shooting attacks. If it advances it gains a 5+ Invulnerable save to all shooting attacks

Grim Resolve
All UNFORGIVEN units may Overwatch on a 5+ and will only lose one model to a failed morale test

Tremor shells

Your warlord and UNFORGIVEN units within 9" of your Warlord may roll a D6 for every wound sustained, on a 5+ it is ignored.

Courage of the First Legion
UNFORGIVEN units in your army may use your Warlords Leadership for morale checks.

The Hunt
Any enemy Character that your Warlord slays in the fight phase grants one victory point

I just read the Devastation of Baal section from the codex.

The Daemons of Chaos led by Ka'pandaman suddenly appeared on Baal Prime and BTFO everyone. Both Tyranids and SPESS were defeated. The Tyranids were wiped out but the Space Marines retreated with the exception of the Knights of Blood who remained behind too lost to the Black Rage.

Dante duels the Swarmlord and defeats him, just as Girlyman and the Primaris arrive mobbing up the remaining Tyranids.

When they look throughout the system, there is no sign of Hive Fleet Leviathan. The only clue as to where the Tyranids went lays on Baal Prime where rests mountainous symbols of Khorne and Ka'pandaman made from the skulls of the Nids.

Kronos is designed with one objective. Fight Chaos and prevent it from manifesting.

The Hive Fleet even interpreted a fleet battle between Imperials and Chaos by smashing into the Chaos fleet and ravaging it. The Imperials thanked the Emperor launched their high yield torpedoes and got out of there.

There is another battle. The Great Rift reopened the Gateway on Shadowbrink. Daemons once again, walked on the world. Drawn by the psychic disturbance, Kronos speeds its way towards Shadowbrink.

The Swarms led by the psychic beasts of the Tyranids land of the planet and begin to use their abilities to close the Rifts and drain what's keeping the daemons manifested. The Legions of Khorne charge forward at the Tyranids but the Tyranid refuse to meet them in melee instead massed bio-firepower obliterated the daemons.

Soon enough, Shadowbrink is cleasned of daemons and Kronos leaves.

Now how does Kronos feeds itself when it's fighting daemons and mortals with corrupted biomass things the Hive Fleets cannot harvest? It appears that Leviathan left strings of half digested planets for Kronos to eat in order to replenish its biomass reverse to continue its war vs Chaos.

They're a unit that doesn't do anything particularly well. They're mediocre at both shooting and combat. All of their weapons are low strength, low AP, 1 damage weapons, so they're only remotely effective against infantry units. Also as low toughness mult-wound models with poor armor saves they're the perfect target for weapons like battlecannons.

Don't expect very much out of them.

Either orks or imperial guard
you're not restricted by characters hogging everything, not strict army composition rules, zone of the galaxy to live in or enemies to fight against; you can name possibly every member of the elite squad, create history, heraldry and heavy conversion work to characterise the aesthetic in whatever flavour you want, which could be traditionalist, tongue in cheek or borderline radical.
perhaps the orks are even more so than the guard considering you're easily capable of creating new units, vehicle chassis and wargear options to make houserules for or to proxy as certain choices, but on the other hand the guard has open numerous alliance opportunities, either with the rest of the imperium or with the genestealer cults, giving a lot of room to explore and modify even those armies into your dudes.

>> No.56237383

That's cool as shit. I now have a new idea for a narrative campaign that would involve the nids in an interesting way.

Admech outposts and assorted muster points on a world claimed by my Takwin Fleet renegade Admech, who are Divisio Genetor. Nids take it, assimilate it into a larder world and leave a fuckton of creatures there for obvious reasons. Battered fleet returns after their trip to Konor expecting a resupply, instead they have to beat back the Nids from their own stuff to resupply before cleansing the Nids from the planet. If they manage to eventually wipe the primary hive and the Hive Tyrants left in charge the planet will no longer be signalling to Kronos and will be safe.

If Nids win, Takwin Fleet has to fall back to their home system in the Ghoul Stars to repair and they start to redesign their Skitarii forces to provide cheaper and more numerous garrisons - I buy a bunch of GSC Neophytes and kitbash them to make pic related as Stygies-tactic Skitarii ground troops, replacing my existing Skittles.

If Admech win then they manage to contain the Nids in biodomes and further develop a lot of the planet for studying the Tyranids, it becomes a very small Forge World and they further their biological constructs and tactics from in-depth vivisection and study of the far less intelligent captive Hive's behavior. I buy myself some Nid kits and start to incorporate their bitz into future kitbashes, maybe some Corpuscarii with more techifyed Termagant guns or something.

We've finally got the chance to have Nids on the defensive, with vulnerable points and somewhat limited resources and having to patrol and hold territory and everything! You could do my idea, an insurrection from a GSC who realize that the Nids aren't their True Saviors, an AGP-style strike team gathering data all kinds of stuff.
