I was really looking forward to 8th edition being full of more durable things so you don't get shot off the table turn one, and things live long enough to fight in melee. Instead it's the same as it ever was and in some cases faster thanks to Smite and infantry guns being able to hurt high toughness targets. Melee still shit and even more shit since people can just walk away. Getting games past turn 3 against good opponents is hard.

You need mobility and/or protection for your Nobz. Give the nobz perhaps a weirdboy with Da Jump, or a vehicle. Preferably a trukk or melee kitted battlewagon, because if your opponent has good deal of autocannon tier weapons with D2 your nobz will melt within seconds. The trukk or battlewagon will take the most beating before your nobz, which is vital considering you want them in melee where they actually do something other than die horribly.

I'd take a weirdboy or two and then just 'port the Nobz to enemy's face.

Gaunts are okay but, stealers + broodlord is just face eatingly good. Gaunts just has the issue of they are weak, don't move as far, have worse saves, don't have a model that buffs their melee models passively, and don't have a 5+ inv save. So while Gaunts can choke up a board, for the same points in Stealers you can do more, throw in lictors or go jorm with some raveners and you can pop up anywhere for maximum coverage.

Fair enough using that logic, I mean it has the -1 to hit due to it's spores which is the same as the mutation, so that would be a -2 to hit if it is out front when it comes to shooting. Not certain what other characters it would be good on, mainly due to don't know off the top of my head of the Dimachaeron is a character (checking, it isn't). So really the only other choice is the Tyranid prime, which given how many models it can buff with all the warriors and shrikes you got around, not half bad to give it to him to keep him safer in case your enemy has a way to snipe him, means also if he is next to the Malanthrope he gets a -2 to be shot.

>> No.56455627

I mean this:
>The Soul Calibur storytelling is in many respects related to the Warhammer 40K franchise. First, both Algol and the Emperor are legendary ancient conquerors, reluctantly and remorsefully slayed their beloved sons who betrayed them despite the hopes and faith of their fathers, had their greatest weapons, Soul Edge and the Space Marine Legions respectively, turn into their worst enemies, and were trapped in the realm of chaos for countless centuries between life and death. In addition, Darth Vader denied his mentor and became the most loyal enforcer of an oppressive empire, just like Nathaniel Garro who opposed Mortarion, the Primarch of the Dusk Raiders who turned traitor and became a worshiper of the Chaos God Nurgle and the leader of the Death Guard, founding the Inquisition where its elite apprentices, the Grey Knights, lose the memories of their past just like Galen Marek. Moreover, Heihachi Mishima is gentle and kind and his ruthlessness and cruelty is displayed only in his pursuit of the Devil Gene which he wishes to use for himself after killing his son and grandson bearing it, similarly to the Imperium purging the Daemons of the Immaterium while intending to use it for extended transportation with smuggled alien technology, specifically the Eldar Webway.

>> No.56455645

>Also, Kratos is in pursuit of vengeance from the Olympian deities for the death of his family as a result of being manipulated by them, like the humans hating the Aeldari for usually exploting and deceiving them while they are the most reliable ally against the Forces of Chaos to prevent destruction similar to the end of God of War 3. Last but not least, the greatest enemy of Ezio Auditore are the Templars, who attempt to impose the regime of Warhammer 40K, as they are led by Grand Master like the Dark Angels, and the Black Templars are the exception of the strict rule of only athousand Space Marines allowed to serve in an Adeptus Astartes Chapter at a time. Conclusively, Soul Calibur takes place during the era of the Ottoman Empire, which succeeded the Byzantine Empire, the source of inspiration for Warhammer 40K, which was predominantly Greek exactly as Sophitia, the protagonist of the series

I mean, I don't think they were out and out Chaos entities(obviously not of the Big 4), but I took the interpretation that they're solidly Warp entities, just shaped by millennia of Fenrisians.

Eldar exodite worlds have their own warp entities, they're called "world spirits" and they're the only reason the exodites can live their lives without soulstones or eating peoples misery. when they die the planet absorbs their soul and they form a part of the magical ecosystem.

That's why colonising exodite worlds tends to be a complete crapshoot. when their people die exodite worlds tend to go completely berserk like the one in the konor campaign that the deathguard had conquered, indiscriminately attacking everything foreign and possessed of endless hate for the ones who defiled it

Yes, you pay codex prices for everything that exists in the codex, then if it doesn't exist in the codex you use the index stuff. Codex rules and values supersedes the index stuff, but, all index options are valid. Just look at the example with the IG Commissar. Pay the cost of the IG Commissar out of the codex, and for his other wargear out of the codex, then since his axe is only in the index, you pay it's points from out of the index and use the rules from the index as it is only in the index.

Kombi-Rokkit is useless, only kombi weapon worth using is a Kombi-Skorcha.

Power Klaws in the Nobz squads would probably be your next target to go. Replace with Big Choppas. PKs are just grossly overpriced for what they do, and Big Choppas work out as more cost effective. If you can, find a way to get maximum ammo runts into your Nob squads; they function beautifully as ablative wounds for your Nobz.

Overall however the list will do pretty poorly. Your Walkers will get blasted off the table in short order and you've given your opponent the perfect mix of infantry and heavies; he can use his anti-infantry guns to destroy your small Boyz squad and his heavy guns to smash your Nobz and Walkers. Orks are very much all or nothing; there's no point taking a mix, you go all one way or the other. Of course, if we're talking effectiveness, then nothing beats the following composition at 1k points:

2 Patrol Detachments

Warboss w/Big Choppa, Attack Squig: 55

FW has basically abandoned non-HH armies so actually getting new units let alone a new faction as a xenos is a fucking miracle. The last release eldar got was the 6e codex shit. This was huge. Fucking GW of course ruins it by aborting the line after gathering storm. I did all I fucking could and as usual it wasn't enough.

I thought Ynnari were a cool idea and while the story out for them at the time I came back to 40k had its problems (particularly with Yvraine) it could be fixed by taking things more slowly after Gathering Storm.

It's the same in retail. The general rule is if the parent acts like a child then you can expect the child to act like the spawn of Satan himself.

One particularly haunting story was this one lady who brought her kid in to the shoe store I worked at and just let the shit fucker do whatever he wanted while she tried on shoes. Apparently one of the things said shit licker wanted to do was run down the aisle, both arms extended, knocking down every display in arm's reach.

In service though I guess it's worse since your money depends on their mood. I hate it when a dick licker parent lets their kid run the show and throw a tantrum if they don't like their food. Then they get all angry at you and expect you to do something to appease their child "can't you get him more (costly ingredient)? this (kid's portion) is small for my obviously-not-still-a-child, can we get another one but with some actual food on the plate this time?"

Well the only SM units would be the ones that Dangles can't take period. To be specific, Thunderfire Cannons. If I fielded Devastators, Tactical Marines, or anything the two factions share, they'd be Dark Angels. I also wouldn't use SM units that are similar to Dangles, even if they function differently. For example, no Sterguard Veterans, or Land Raiders that DA doesn't already have. If I use Terminators or Bikers, they'd be Deathwing and Ravening, respectively.

Word Bearers did a good job stomping on the Ultramarines and splitting the galaxy apart with warp storms, they would have killed Guilliman if it wasn't for the stupidity of one of their commanders.

Iron Warriors and World Eaters contributed a lot to the siege of Terra even if Perturabo and Angron were bargain bin primarchs.

Death Guard certainly were the most reliable traitor legion after the actual Sons of Horus. Emperor's Children and Night Lords were too psychotic, Alpha Legion were xenos sympathizers who kept everything secret even from Horus.

Now I always thought Perturabo was one of the better Primarchs given he could effectively devise weapons of untold devastation and turn a can opener into a siege engine.

His temper and tendency to maul subordinates aside, he's also a bit of a better tactician than Angron and Mortarion isn't he?

I remember it being said that he both held and conquered the Emperor's Palace in a simulation.

Is Khorne not also the God of stratagem in warfare?

>> No.56458296

Khorne is about warfare in all its forms, strategy included, it's just the World Eaters aren't and they're the biggest Khorne posterboys in 40k.

I kind of viewed him as an Artisan to be honest.

He's foul tempered, cantankerous and eccentric, but there was a point when he did mean well for the Imperium.

To me, it sounds like everyone else was just ungrateful.

I mean, what were the Iron Warrors doing that was really all that bad before the Heresy?

True they took a lot of jobs that were less than glamorous, but they did what needed to be done for the Imperium, and did it remarkably well from what I've read.

Besides, some of his brothers seemed more worthy of contempt than he himself did. I believe I recall it being said that prior to the Heresy, Kurze was known for lunacy and Fulgrim for doing "strange things" to his warriors, as the Khan put it.

IG units are great though. Even without Orders or Stratagems, IG units are point-for-point as good as pretty much everybody else's units, if not better.
Rather than tie it to the unit, make it so that the GK stratagems are stronger in that scenario.
>Is there any way to balance out the disparity between command points faction to faction?
Sure. Don't give the army that already has the easiest access to mass CP (Guard) multiple avenues to recoup them mid-game. Give all of the more elite armies ways to recoup them mid-game (GK and CSM lack these, SM only get it for Ultras). Make a middle ground detachment between the Battalion and the Brigade that gives +6 CP.

True, which allows for honorable Khorne followers who only kill those who carry a weapon and fight back. Which is neat. Not mindless berserkers slaughtering everything (though that is butchers nails), just people who are fighting back they will honorably fight back against. And those who stoop to cowardly tactics they will have no qualms of out right killing in a onesided fight (foe not friend, it is foolish to kneecap yourself).
