>Plague Hulk
>Decades after its apparent demise, Gorgon reemerges. It's path converges with the plague hulk Vomnivorax. The Hive Fleet launches boarding tentacles, and swarms of gants pour into the corrupted vessel. Plague Marines of the Mouldering Claw obliterate the initial waves of invaders, their disease-ridden flesh immune to the toxins of the Gorgon. The swarm consumes those few who fall. During the next wave of the invasion, Toxicrenes lace the tunnels of the ship with a refined spore-agent which causes the Plague Marines' rancid flesh to slough from their bones.

Daily reminder that the codex says that the T'au with their technology can cure Gorgon's poison spores but the cures only last for one or two occasions, forcing the T'au to invent a new cure. It's a race between two factions.

This confirms that the T'au is going be the race that will defeat the Nids.

1x Culexus Assassin

Magnus deleted the Thunderwolves turn one. They shot everything at him on the bottom of turn 1 and charged with a bunch of stuff, leaving him with 1W remaining. Top of turn 2, Magnus flew off and killed half the tacticals with Smite. The Berzerkers hopped out, one squad flubbed their charge, the other, along with the characters, charged the Devastators and the Rhino. Wiped the Devestators. Then the opponent killed pretty much all of the Berzerkers and the Champion on the bottom of turn 2, as well as finishing off Magnus and I think throwing a couple wounds onto the Land Raider. The Chaos Lord ended up wiping out the Terminators, but that was the end of our killing anything. Between the Land Raider, the Helbrute, and the Vindicator we did jack shit.
We had to call due to time on turn four.

You pretend the NAP makes any sense at all in the context of a market economy. Every good that is bought or sold alters the supply of the good, which increases or decrease the price on the margin. This changes the real income of everyone else who sells that good, so you choosing to sell makes everyone else who is selling poorer. The important thing for markets to function efficiently is *not* non-aggression or non-violence, but a strictly demarcated set of rules that define in what ways we are and are not allowed to hurt other people. btw this is also Ludwig Von Mises' argument against natural law.

If you want a ranged list, Kronos is giving more benefit, and it's not like it's impossible to get shooty bugs into actual cover which would render the Jorm adaptation moot anyways.

Exocrines, Hive Guard, Biovores, and T-fexes really want Kronos more than Jorm. Flyrants, Harpies/Hive Crones, Genestealers, Brood Lords, Hormagaunts, Gargoyles, every form of 'Thrope, Haruspexes, Toxicrenes, want pretty much ANYTHING more than Jorm.

Melee fexes want Kraken. Shooty Warriors could be okay with Jorm but are kind of bad anyways, plus Leviathan gives them a defensive bonus that's very slightly worse but applies against everything including ignores cover, melee and mortal wounds.

The only things that really want Jorm are Mawlocs, shooty Raveners, Tervigons, Termagants and Dakkafexes.

How the hell is that even possible? Even if readers are expected to believe that a singe SM can take on 10,000 ordinary mortal soldiers, there's only still just a 1000 of them, give or take. That means a planet with only 10 million soldiers that can fight or more can still fight off invasion of an entire chapter. A population of less than 100 million can easily afford that.

Exterminatus obviously isn't an option, because those ships capable of exterminatus can be done by regular humans as well, so it's really not a SM feat. Not to mention that it is heavily implied that SMs conquer, not commit genocide, human populations that resist.

Yeah, that's the marinewank at work. Even the most overwanked Space Marines that actually show up in books would never actually accomplish anything like that against any enemy that's worth sending something as expensive as Marines are against.

Against anything that can be surgical struck to death, Scions, Admech teleporting troops or even a hypothetical special operations unit that's got access to Marine toys would probably manage it. Don't need a dozen Termies to teleport into an office and shoot some Planetary Governor. Anything that's going to actually play hardball needs a few million Guardsmen along with a couple chapters of Marines to spearhead things at LEAST. Giving Marines expensive custom superheavy tanks, Land Raiders, generally anything that doesn't fit in a Drop Pod or Teleportarium is quite the waste of resources IMO, since Thunderhawks can be shot down and there goes the 30 Marines that took 450 years to train between them. See: Skitarius and Tech-Priest for examples of pretty much exactly that, or Istvaan V for exactly how little those fancy toys do against Titans and such.

If you want Chapter-sized units to do anything worth a damn they should probably be entirely stuff like Assault Marines, Inceptors, teleporting units, Dreads and pod dudes. You know, stuff that would actually see some use in these supposedly unbeatable "precision strikes".

So, Behemoth gives you:
Reliable charge from Deep Strike with the T-Prime and the unit he brings. Also a stratagem to inflict a few mortal Wounds when you really need to finish off a weakened opponent. Useless Relic with that list, though, but Ymgarl Factor would be a nice generic choice. Warlord trait for extra damage.

Reliable rush across the board. Can reposition and charge again every turn. Relic can give the T-Prime -1 to hit for enemy ranged attacks. Warlord trait allows a unit near the WL to always strike first, could be pretty useful in your list.

Leviathan: Everything near the T-Prime and Broodlords has 6+ FnP which is solid defensively. Relic and Stratagem are useless in your list. WL trait is just a few re-rolls, nothing special.

Gorgon: Reliable damage with the re-roll 1s to wound. Stratagem is good if you pay for Toxin Sacs but they're expensive on Genestealers and wasted on 1 Wound targets. WL trait is just straight mortal wounds. Relic is good on the T-Prime.

They don't. Competent writers that are able to do simple math would know that a single chapter of Space Marines would have a difficult time conquering any planet with a Earth-like human population in the billions that has a decent level of military technology that can harm them.

That's why Space Marines are supposed to be Special Elite Forces that allow the Guard forces to do most of the heavy lifting, even if it they're outnumbered by the rebels 10-1, which is far more plausible.

The marines are force multipliers that make it way easier for the guard to conquer territory through infiltration, dispatching the enemy command structure, eliminating vital supply routes, or identifying key targets, structures, objectives.

I wouldn't have Lovecraft write it, but glorious Admech nonsense could be fun if you want an interesting Tweest in your story.

With apologies for the chap I stole this from:

>Strange, it's silent. It doesn't say anything to them in response, it doesn't surrender even after 90+% casualties and those accelerations they pulled were absurd... and they board the wrecks-and there's nobody there. It's all servitorized and automated. And there's another fleet of even more warships coming and it turns out the Darkmech thinks the outdated paradigm is perfectly cost-efficient because that was Battle Fleet's secret. There is no Battle Fleet. It's basically SkyNET.

Have the enemy ships get increasingly more freaky and gigeresque as things go on and the enemy Admech go from "compensating for no manpower" to "what the fuck is this", pushing the Good Guy commanders to ever more extreme lengths.

It's a classic issue with the lore. 1000 marines couldn't even conquer modern earth by simple merit that even if each were totally, unstoppable, they would only be able to conquer 1000 municipalities at any given time. Again, assuming that said marines were literally invincible, their wouldn't bee enough of them to HOLD anything.

I mean, let's say that they send 50 marines, 5% of their total force, to oversee the United States. The Marines split up and each guard a State.

Florida's Marine, being invincible, conquers Miami and tells them to warship the Emperor. He gets on a Rhino to go to Tallahasee. Half the City is warshipping Tzeench on the third day since the Marine left, and by the time the Marine gets back to Miami after visiting Tampa, Tallahasee, Orlando, Palm Beach, Datona, and Jacksonville, there's a goddamn Lord of Change sitting on the sign above the interstate exit near Games Workshop; Miami. And that's just the major Cities. How is he going to control the minor cities, the towns, and the suburbs?

Congratulations on losing the war shithead.

Your enemy can't lose if he doesn't know he's losing. With no satellites there's no long range communication.

With no long range communication there's no way for Joe Blow Citizen to know the state of the war.

If you want to conquer a planet like earth you have 2 options:

1. Destroy the majority of the planet, killing the majority of it's people, and still have to deal with some low level insurgency forever.

2. Subtly take control of the world leaders and information centers. The planet doesn't know it's been conquered, only that slowly, over time, everyone is singing the same tune ideologically. Once again there will still be insurgency against the party agenda, but human forces thinking that they are protecting the human greater good can put down this insurgency, while the conquering force need only leave a few token representatives behind to ensure compliance.

Marines have never been about this, they destroy key elements and let the rest of the Guard crush the disorganized forces that have been weakened by their strikes and in the case of working alone they simply need to have orbital superiority acquired via boarding actions in order to nuke shit from orbit before ever setting foot.

In the case of Earth it would be very easy to simply start nuking large cities, destroying all satellites which would cripple large information sharing or tactical assessments on a large scale, without cities or farmland and deprived of information the United States for example would be crippled as their big cities are increasingly unable to feed themselves and forced to put military personnel on the streets to quell any unrest. Now the Marines are facing several countries trying to make sure their populations dont run amok and the constant threat of nuclear annihilation and being unable to retaliate against a single battle barge, Earth just surrenders because a single fucking ship is buttfucking the planet and the Marines are not even out of their pods yet, nuclear winter and the lack of food would absolutely destroy Earth.
