Question :

I'm not a good player, so bear with me.

Is it recommended to have always and in every list 2x cheap troops to build a conga line so the enemy can't deepstrike?

Hallo! I'm looking for canon Space Marine chapters that use a specific design as their emblem-- namely, the cross in pic related.

I found the following ones on the wikia:

>Fire Angels
>Iron Knights
>Avenging Sons
>Crimson Scions
>Dark Crusaders

but unfortunately the M-Z page is incomplete, so I don't know if I've missed any.

Also, I would prefer one with a ring around the cross if that's possible, but no big deal if it's not.

Unless your bringing scout sentinels, a sizable screen of infantry, or Salamanders you were pretty much fucked from the start. Tankguard and Nidzilla both are notable for their susceptibility to deep strikes (lack of board control) and AT (lack of bodies).

Pic related is my list. It's not competitive, but it is balanced between infantry and armor, so I rarely have the deepstrike issue. I might need to bring more ratlings, though, if the 24" Obliterators start overtaking my local meta.

Speaking of meta, local game flavors that can be very important to your listbuilding strategies. In my case, we're talking a store where people generally bring one centerpiece model in their army. It might be a shadowsword or an imperial knight or a Flyer or even a character, but there is always a centerpiece. That's why my army does not have a centerpiece and indeed uses a cheap old grudges platoon commander of all things: I deploy 5 tanks, all homogeneous, and one or worst case two get nuked by a centerpiece. Then I outflank my platoon commander behind the remaining friendly tanks and blow that thing to shreds with a rerolling number of shots, rerolling to hit, rerolling to wound tank platoon. Even shadowswords with psyker support tend to melt under that kind of firepower. The Assault veterans follow the commander just so I have something to distract any melee units coming towards the remaining vehicles.

So, uh, Yea. Meta context and balancing lists are important.

Not enough Antitank IMO, you will struggle heavily against either shooty gunline vehicle lists or armies that bring lots of transports, since you rely on cracking armor with your CC rather than shooting.

Purifiers are bad. I mean, REALLY bad. You need a Brother Captain just to make them capable of smiting before they charge into combat, and any reasonable opponent will have no problems deleting a couple MEQs of the table before they get into 3" range. Also, they hit in CC like a wad of wet paper and die to the stiff breeze of a dedicated CC unit, so getting close for their smite is usually a really bad idea. Count yourself blessed if you actually manage to survive to smite twice in a game.

I'd definently add some Purgation squads, as they can concievibly fill any role a GK army needs, from anti-infantry, anti-elites or even anti-tank occasionally.

I personally dislike the Support characters like the Apothecary and the Ancient (Apoth seems to fall behind lots of the time, and Ancient is so expensive its usually better to just buy more of what you're buffing instead). Give them a go, though, they can definently be worth it if you play them right.

Cant really comment on the Razorbacks or the Dreadnought, since I dont own/play any Forgeworld models.

What I can tell you is that
A: Razorbacks with Lascannons are fantastic for GKs, they are fast, tough, cheap, keep a squad of squishy PAGK safe and provide GKs with much needed ranged Antitank in the form of a Lascannon.

B: Dreads are good, but I prefer to play 2, since it gives you more redundancy. I play mine with fists, one with a melta the other with a lascannon.
T1 the melta Gates forwards and tries to nuke shit, while the lascannon just advances and shoots. T2 the Lascannon gates forwards as well to pu pressure on the opponent in case he still hasnt killed the first dread.

derp, was thinking of the Taurox Punisher. But otherwise, yes.

Assuming a Tank Commander, for instance, a Punisher at full pelt will deal about 6 unsaved wounds to MEQ. With three heavy bolters (because ofc you'd do that) you get an additional two and with battleshock stand a very solid chance of removing an entire space marine squad in one volley.

I don't call that underwhelming, myself.

You're thinking of the Taurox Prime. That math is right, I believe.

Yeah I'm pretty aware I'm lacking in anti-tank. I've already built my Apoth and my Ancient, so I'm pretty sure I'm taking them regardless.

Are purifiers REALLY that bad? I was planning on throwing them both in the crusader with the Champion. Was kinda hoping for better results really. The purifers were also there to make up elites for the vanguard, technically.

Doomglaive is a cheaper venerable dread with a nemesis weapon thats S3, ap-3, d6 damage, and a heavy psycannon (24, s7, ap-1, d2). The razorbacks just have twin psycannons. I'd like to take two, but list constraints are eating me alive. Hell, I'd rather take two Landraiders too.

There are 6 major Orders Militant of adeptus sororitas, one for each of the six sainted sisters (Alicia Dominica and her 5 bodyguards) who were taken before the golden throne right at the end of the Age of Apostasy.

(basically the Primarchs for the Sisters of Battle)

Each of these Orders is like a space marine legion. They occasionally bud off an Order Minor, which is like a successor chapter.

While there are a good two dozen named Orders Minor in official fluff, the only one I can find with an official paint scheme in a quick search is the Order of the Blue Robe.

I really doubt we'd get army wide tactics for an Order Minor though, so for the SoB 'dex we'd be looking at 6.

Order of the Ebon Chalice (Alicia Dominica)
-The Ultramarines or Black Legion of Orders Major, basically. No deviation from standard.

Order of the Valorous Heart (Sister Lucia)
-Very penitent, have lots of Repentia.

Order of the Argent Shroud (Sister Silvana)
-Stubborn, the Order.

Order of Our Martyred Lady (Katherine Elysius)
(Originally the Order of the Fiery Heart)
-Very faithful, selfless.

Order of the Bloody Rose (Sister Mina)
-Fast striking, good Dominion squads.

Order of the Sacred Rose (Sister Arabella)
-Calm in battle, good Retributor Squads

Most of the Order tactics should be easy to guess. I'd be VERY surprised if GW actually gave us a 'dex with them though.

Your army is very conveniant. Each squad and the dreadnaught when under the charactor's aura kill about 1 squad of guardsmen per turn, and the hellblasters do about 6 wounds on a Russ. That makes my expected casualty calculations during deployment very easy.

Of course, like all footslogging primaris armies, you're going to face an uphill battle against even moderately mechanized forces that can ignore the bolters and dance around the hellblasters.

It seems to be fashionable thing to do for DIY chapters, but I'd suggest trying to come up with your own thing. If they are just like another Chapter why do they even exist?
>and their main purpose is to cleanse civilians of Chaos' taint after fights with demons.
Killing civilians seems like an utter waste of the most sophisticated killingmachines that the Imperium can produce. Even Arbites or a mob of fanatics could do that job.
Also doesn't really jive with the Inquisition theme. I mean the Inquisition does the investigating and the Inquisitorial seal give an Inquisitor ultimate power. So if he happens to find a chaos cult somewhere he just has to point his finger and literally everything from the Governor, the Imperial Guard, Planetard Defense Forces, Law Enforcement and Ecclesiarchy is gonna do his bidding. He doesn't need a whole Space Marine chapter to go after chaos cults.
Not unless there is a planet wide rebellion going on.

Also the paintscheme could look a little monochromatic from table distance. Mind you, other Chapters have similar schemes.

>Would an absolute madman use Purgation squads without a ride?
It REALLY depends on your local meta, and what army you go up against. What makes Purgators so great is that they ar cheap AF, and have such a high damage potential (24 shots doing d3 Dmg means a "max" eg you will never roll this well output of 72 damage.
I've tried running them on foot at my LGS, but it never worked out, since a small MEQ squad is such a juicy, easy target for first blood or stuff like plasma deepstrikers. I encourage you to try it out though, the astral aim power can really help keep them alive if you play them like that.

Like I said, it doesnt work at my LGS, so I currently run 2 squads that hide out in a Land Raider on turn 1, and then get out to shoot after they survive any potential alpha strike.
Depending on my opponents list, I might deploy them outside of the Land Raider, though.

>>56240142
>2 Land Raiders
>tfw as a GK player you will never actually have enough room at 2k to play even just two LRs with good units inside them
Being so expensive is suffering, man

The problem with purifiers is that they are costly as fuck, and dont give you any advantadge over a normal strike squad other than a 3" range gimmick. Most of the time, you will struggle to get within 3" of an enemy unit worth smiting, you probably wont ever survive to smite a second time, and even when you do you are extremely dice dependant, as a single bad roll means you could have just left the unit at home all together.

Generally, no. Guardians are a bit more expensive for what they do. But they aren't terrible or anything, they just need a bit more babysitting to get them into 12" to be useful. They're fine for camping an objective if they have a warlock or other support, like the celestial shield stratagem, but you won't see many lists centered around them.

Although Deathwatch is emphasizes diverse squads, there should be some specialization involved. Like, run Veterans with combi-weapons for a dedicated range squad, dedicated close combat could use combi-flamers, shotguns, and, of course, melee weapons, as well as a Blackshield.

Beyond Blackshields in melee-focused squads, I don't see much a reason for all the random specialists outside of a Terminator, which has the most well-rounded special rule to add. Plus, they're always good to tank some big hits from the rest of the squad.

Has anyone actually ha goo luck with Mortarion? Mine should be arriving Monday. So far I have had 8 games with my DG and been fortunate enough to win all of them. I feel like I am in a good place with them, but I still wanted Mortarion...because I have everything else in the codex, so why not.

All of the battle reports I have watched that included Mortarion have either been basically including him in a "normal" DG list (the DG player almost always loses these games), or completely building a list around Mortarion that seems otherwise a bit cheesy (these are usually won by the DG player)

I do not wish to mix my DG with Tzeentch forces...I am fine with being a bit on the cheesy side, I have no problems bringing a small CSM detachment for warptime...but I do not wish to bring Magnus and a bunch of Brimstones.

I had thought about bringing Mortarion, a Vanguard detachment consisting of Chaos Lord in Terminator armor (for rerolls on my blightlords), 2x 5man squads of Blightlord Terminators with 1x squad bringing combi-plasmas and 1x squad bringing combi-meltas, and 3x squad of Deathshroud (being held in reserve coming in where Mortarion should end up after the Warptime)...then bringing an Outrider detachment consisting of a CSM jump Sorcerer with Warptime, a Herald of Nurgle with heals, and 3x Bloat Drones.

this may totally suck...the idea is to move, warptime, charge Mortarion into assault on turn 1. Figure out where he will wind up assaulting and drop the Deathshroud as close as can I can. The Chaos Lord, along with both squads of Blightlords will drop in and try and alpha the targets that pose the biggest danger to Mortarion and/or crack open transports to try and maximize his Host of Plagues ability...if the positioning is good enough, I may even use Nurgles Rot on the following round. The Bloat Drones will zip up the board as quickly as possible and try and cause as much havoc as possible.

I have other ideas as well...will this work?

Necrons are rife with anti-synergy, overcosted models and lack of Any options, leading to monobuilds.

Basic troop is pretty bad. Transport only carries half-sized troops. 1 decent AT vehicle, the decent AT heavy support also has a half unit-size clause. Centerpiece does nothing, have No defenses like ++, +++ or the necron vehicle shield and costs 400 points.

Flyers only have bs4+ on their Main cannon and that is in perfect shape. Their transport flyer is shit at carrying troops, their melee units have nothing supporting charged and the entire faction leans on sheer unit sizes to actually get their trait.

The point, Satan, was that since the 4th ed Gavdex, Chaos Marines stopped being baseline Marines - with some Halloween bits stuck on to bad-guy them up - and became vaguely Marine-shaped objects with no apparent purpose IU or on the tabletop. Writing a CM dex should be so easy, even GW devs can't fuck it up because there's always a Space Marine dex they can C/P and be 50% done in an hour. Yet, here we are with Delusions of Adequacy Book V and blithe 8th ed advice like, "Just ally some real marines."

see I had in my theoretical Mortarion lists document I have saved....I also have a list that runs a Spearhead detachment with 3x Plagueburst crawlers, but I was unsure on how to use them.

In my games so far I have had a ton of luck running 3x PBC's with an Arch-Contaminator Lord. But in those games the whole detachment is tightly packed into a ball...i make a triangle with the tanks and put the Lord in the middle. He wont be the closest model to shoot and cannot be charged, until at least one of the tanks is destroyed...then screen it with poxwalkers so they dont break. Makes it difficult to deep strike anywhere near the whole mess. But the point is, in nearly every game, the models never moved...they stayed in the same spot where i deployed them, and literally skipped every single movement phase...and just shot without penalties. I use the entropy cannons and slugger for the options...and they have survived every game, and put in major work. They may have had bad turns, but averaged out over the course of the game, they have done super well.

But in a list with Mortarion in it, I feel like I would need to possibly take Plaguespitters and rothail...and move them very quickly up the board to try and relieve some pressure from Mortarion. Is this how you use them with him? Or do you keep them back and use them as artillery pieces?

Nope, the Entropy/Slugger loadout still works. Mortarion runs forward and forces your opponent to deal with him or lose, which means your Plaguefuck blob can pound away unmolested. I've won multiple games after Morty killed less than his points and died bottom of 2 or top of 3, but his presence fucked the opponent's formation so hard that he ended up with no way to stop the artillery from bombing him to hell.

The Tau have a number of Sept worlds, their thing is actually mostly about specifc color bands that signify their homeworld. They have certain color schemes that they work with, but my understanding is that as long as they keep the sept color markings they'll chamge their gear's colors depending on tge mission.

The ones we have listed on Lexicanum:
T'au - basic Tau, white markings, brown/yellow armor
Tau'n - grey markings, white/black armor, they are tactical and deploy a variety of battlesuit types to counter any type of enemy
D'yanoi - Light blue markings, brown/white armor, uses lots of Vespids due to proximity to their homeworld
Vior'la - red sept colors, white/greenish grey armor, famed for aggression and utilization of the Mont'ka strategy, relying on single applications of overwhelming force using large numbers of battlesuits and fire warriors
Sa'cea - orange markings, blue/grey armor, puts out the greatest number of fire warriors of any sept world
Ke'lshan (or Kel'shan, depends on the book) - gold markings, grey and black armor, notable for grimdark fire warriors, survivng a number of attacks from other species, and armor suited for shipboard combat
Elsy’eir - purple markings, red and grey armor, famed for being a leisure world that also produces a lot of Riptides
Bork'an- Turquoise, camoflage armor in a variety of colors, major Earth Caste (engineer caste) training area, very hardy
Dal'yth - purple or teal markings (finding some differing sources on this one), famed for trade and lots of xenos, both members and non-members of the Empire
Fal'shia - guys from Soulstorm, look up Or'es'Ka if you want to know about them

And many more, because the Tau have so few holdings its easy to describe all of them in just a few short sentences.

You have it half right, I dunno why everyone is jumping down your throat about it.

Like most famous heroes his story gets embellished as it travels until it ends up some William Wallace type thing where he can shoot lightning out his arse. The orks think that he can kill them with a glare alone - this actually comes up in the books too, where a boy has the drop on him but falters when yarrick catches sight of him.

So when Yarrick lost an eye he thought "well shit, better live up to the stories about me" and instead of having it replaced with a standard cybernetic eye he got a laspistol glued in place.

The Warhammer World army modeling guidlines have pretty good examples. Personally I don't consider a literal "3 colors" mini painted in most circumstances. The level shown as tabletop quality here, i.e. just everything basecoated and appropriate details picked out, is what I consider painted.

Farsight is from Vior'la, his colors are an inverse of theirs, basically, and their fighting style is very similar because he was their posterboy before he went rogue. Id imagine Vior'la will get bonuses to shooting and moving or shooting in close range, while the Enclaves would get some kind of bonuses relating to survivng melee or a different type of aggresive playstyle, something that lets them specifically counter the Orks. Maybe one or another will get more close range deepstrike options besides stealth suit homing beacons to make it harder for infantry blobs to do area denial.

It's just being real. Blood Angels and Dark Angels have always just been "Codex Space Marines with some extra units sprinkled on top." That isn't going to radically change now.

>>56242270
I agree. Blood Angels and Dark Angels should've been rolled into Codex: Space Marines ages ago. Black Templars were significantly more divergent in lore and playstyle.

>>56242316
They are (to a degree), but there's only so far you can push the melee angle while they're still just a variant of Codex: Space Marines. The Blood Angels Chapter Trait will be something in-line with all the other melee focused MEQ sub-factions (re-roll charges, +1 A on the charge, charge after fallback, etc).

Hence my whole point about Death Company. They are one of the the things you Can easily push. Same with Sanguinary Guard and the various melee dreads.

Lol, you'll be stuck in the same boat as always (Codex: Space Marines that are marginally better at CC) and you'll like it.
>deepstrike at 6.0001"
Jesus, no. This game already has too many problems with alpha strikes. The last thing we need is an assault army that is pretty much guaranteed to get mass turn 1 charges every game.
>>56242441
Death Company are just berzerking Blood Angels. They should be tougher and stronger than standard BA, but they shouldn't be the top-end of melee infantry.

one unit is basically guaranteed in kraken with command points and a trygon and a swarmlord.

Spend the 2Cp on the two movement stratagems on the swarmlord, then have the trygon pop up with the unit you want. The swarmlord should move fast (on average 37 inches), and then lets the unit you want to charge with move in the shooting phase. It can move to >1 inch and then charge.

The only real points of failure are getting amazingly bad luck on the advance rolls.

You haven't read the fluff have you? Death company marines make space marines uneasy. They aren't just angry, they are cursed to relive a betrayal so great it's left a scar upon their very souls

Death company don't see a tyranid, or a guardsman, or even a daemon. Death company are themselves on terra fighting heretic marines. They see a carnifex as an enemy dreadnought and still kill the fucking thing. They should absolutely be one of the premier melee units

Ffs they killed skarbrand with goddamn chainswords.

Indirectly make them good at countering orks, like making Enclave units not completely fold in melee like other Tau. Maybe buff their overwatch a bit, get to fire into melee if within supporting distance. Would be nice to see Crisis suits get fusion blades back, give them a reason to exist by letting sword suits hunt down artillery pieces and slay them in melee.

Nope. Ork powers are just magic WD40, they can't make something magically happen they just can make something more likely to work right and less likely to jam, etc. Ignore the memes, and look at the sources. Old 3e codex is where it's laid out best.

In Rogue Trader. By 2e armies were over 20 often enough and 3e had units over 20. Whereas some named characters still had that stipulation in 5e, meaning that for more than half the existence of the game (and in the most formative editions) that has held true.

You're bad at this. That would effect orks less than most armies as you've written it, since they have more attacks to start with. Secondly, the game has enough shitty skew matchups without adding them to the game deliberately.
