Save money until codex comes out and the PDF shows up here.

Ah thank you.

So I have a question... how exactly does charging and overwatch work? Do you declare all charges first, overwatch each enemy unit,and THEN they move or do you declare charge, overwatch, move, and then declare another charge? I ask this because obviously in the first scenario everything charging gets shot at while in the second scenario it might be a better idea to charge with some shit unit to soak up overwatch and then charge in with a heavy hitter without the risk of a lucky shot doing damage before they get in to melee.

What type of logic is that? Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you're half way competent with how you make your list, you get strength from death and the stratagems.
So in their opinion, if you can't punish the enemy for being successful by shooting at them in their turn, some how "move but count as stationary" is now worlds better?

There's a difference between reducing someone's point to absurdity to mock it, and making an extreme analogy to point out the principle doesn't always apply.

As an Admech player I don't really know what to think about that thing.

>> No.56471091

>You can just make a claim with a string of logic to it, if your opinion is respected
That would be an appeal to authority, which is retarded. And to act like his claim has any logic to it is absurd. His argument is "if I can't punish the enemy for being successful, then the army is dead." That's not logical, that's retarded, as that goes against basic good game design: it encourages the enemy to simply not play, because if they don't do well, then they'll lose, and if they do well, the enemy can punish them making them more likely to lose. It's the warhammer equivalent of WMDs, the only way to win is to not play.
That guy is a faggot, and his retarded appeal to authority of "my opinion is respected so I can say stupid shit and that means I'm right" only shows how cancerous WAACfags are

Ehhh. I was looking at Eldar subfactions and before it seemed going Ynnari for Deldar and Clowns was a sidegrade.

A) ynarri was being taken over craftworlds
B) just because it was nerfed doesn't mean it's now invalidated as he claimed. If, as was the case for ynarri, the original state was extremely OP, it being nerfed doesn't make it shit, but brings it in line with everything else. Which is what happened
SO now it is up to him to show the nerfs to something which was OP were to the extent to make them not viable, which he does nothing to show, only claim.

With this hit to Ynarri, the best way to run it if you want to run all 3 is just to have a primary Craftworld detachment with a craftworld warlord trait, world trait and relic and another one with mixed deldar and harlequins. A bit limiting I guess but you get the advantages of a codex in your list like the imperial soup lists. With all the limitations on making an Ynarri list as it is I don't see this as much of a problem as someone who runs deldar/harlequins, as now I can add a craftworld alaitoc spearhead of dark reapers and an index/codex mashup up sniper warlord Autarch.

Which he didn't. He just claimed that because they are no longer OP, they're shit. That's not logical, because as already explained, if they were OP, which they were, then them being nerfed does not mean they are automatically bad, it means that they could have been nerfed enough or over nerefed.

Just joining this argument but the nerfs kinda gut the core mechanic of the army which itself overwrite the core mechanics of the 3 armies involved and the craftworld codex stuff (as you HAVE to have an Ynarri warlord).
Now, you effectively only need one decent shooting unit (a squad of dark reapers?) a squad to take advantage of a second fight phase (troupe of harleys) and Yvraine to cast WOTP. Rather than being the base for Elf Soup, Ynarri is just a seasoning now, which arguably is how it should be since they're a tiny faction within a dying race.

if by core mechanics you mean "when you die in enemy turn, you get to use SfD" then that's good, because that mechanic is retarded.
It encourages the opponent to not fight you, and goes utterly against any good form of game design.
At a very basic level, a wargame is fundamentally based on one simple principle: If you play well, you are rewarded, if you play, poorly, you lose. SfD is the exact opposite of this. If your opponent does well, you are rewarded and they are punished, if you do poorly, you are rewarded and they are punished. That's horrible game deisgn, because it encourages the opponent to not do well, which essentially means it encourages them to lose. Shooting at the enemy becomes bad, killing your opponents units is now bad, the very core mechanics of how to win at 40k are now turned against someone playing against ynarri.
That had to be removed, because it was both OP AND at a fundamental level it was retarded.
That said, limiting it to once per turn rather than once per phase was a bit much, but hardly to the point of making them unplayable

It's perfectly fine, it's just that in the WAACfag world, shooting a unit to death allowing you're melee units to fight out of phase for free is bad

>I don't think it should have been limited to 1 type of soulburst
yeah, definitely. I think that there does need to be some balance, to both prevent exploding soulbursts and to limit how effective it becomes so that it doesn't allow you to steam roll an opponent by getting a games worth of fighting and shooting in one turn, but I think that could have been solved by saying
"if a unit is killed by a soulburst action, it's destruction does not allow for any soulbursts actions to be taken as a result of it's destruction" and "each action may only be used once per phase" in additon to soul burt being limited to your turn only
That way ynarri can still get quite a few soulbursts, but not to the point it becomes OP

chicken is better

the only issue I see with it is that if you don't limit how often you can soulburst, you can essentially create a situation where the ynarri player pairs up a group of shooting, psychic and melee units so that each tag teams to allow them to soulburst each turn, then spam that combo so each unit in the group essentially gets to do what it does twice each turn, in essence giving any competent ynarri player twice the number of turns of the opponent.
But then again, I'm not sure how powerful or viable that would be in practice. I think starting with either one would be fine, and then using playtesting, player feedback and tourney results to determine if it to OP/underpowered

>> No.56472391

I kind of feel making it only in the owning player's turn and only one type of soulburst per round might have been too far too fast. To me, and I only have like 1100 points of DE, and then a random Farseer so no eldar or soup player here, it would have made more sense to either make it you can only do one soulburst action per player turn, or, you can do as many soulburst actions as you want, but, only on your turn. Both seems way too hard out of the gate.

Because it seems if the issue was out of sequence play (playing in the opponents turn) then just remove that aspect. If it was that they got to abuse soulburst and doing multiple other actions out of sequence in their own turn then it would be limiting them to only one soulburst of each type per turn.

But, the rules are the rules, still curious to try them out someday.

>Designer’s note: As part of our continuing efforts to make sure that matched play remains a fair and competitive way to play Warhammer 40,000, we felt it was necessary to review how Ynnari armies played in light of the changes made in Codex: Craftworlds. When Index: Xenos 1 was first written, Ynnari armies were playtested using the datasheet rules and points values printed in that book. With the introduction of new Stratagems, improvements to several datasheets, and a general reduction in points values for Codex: Craftworlds units (and anticipating similar changes that will be made in Codex: Drukhari and Codex: Harlequins), it was felt that we needed to address the balance of Ynnari armies so that they remain a competitive army to play with, and against, in matched play games.

Removing it being in both turns wasn't even a nerf, it should have been the case from the get go. As stated earlier, allowing you to soulburst when the enemy shoots you up in their shooting phase is the pinnacle of poor game design.
With that out of the way, the question becomes how to limit it, because it does need to be limited. GW probably went a bit too far with only one of each per turn, but the question of how much is too much and how little is too little is what needs to be figured out

It was the fact that it was both at once, not that it was just removing you from acting in the enemy's turn. Not that it isn't uncommon in other games (reaction shots, alternating activation, ect). I think limitation is the main question now, though it would have been interesting if the only option for the only soulburst during an enemy turn would be to move and you have unlimited use of it. "Oh shit, squad next to us just evaporated, well let's move over there to not suffer the same fate!" Would have been an interesting option, or like grant a -1 to hit or something on a 6+ so it isn't an always buff for units next to them dying. It's cheesy, but, fluffy, and I am more of a fluffy type of person. Hence why I get the whole ability to suddenly cast a psychic power in the enemy's shooting phase is a bit stupid, or shoot back in a game where that doesn't normally happen. Makes a lot of butt hurt due to it is super unique and doubles the volume of fire (even though we now have a lot of ways for marines and even IG to when they die to get off one last shot before being removed, so not as big of a thing, it is more of the choice I guess.)

You only have one unique troop, two elites, and one fast attack. They don't have a lot of diversity in that respect.

Your marines are 19 ppm so be careful with them. Don't go crazy kitting them out because you can easily turn them into 50+ point 1 w models that will get shot off the table.

Watch Masters are your strongest general HQ. Don't mix up kill teams to much (like giving half CC weapons and half ranged upgrades). Terminators don't do well mixed in with Kill Teams, bikes go to melee kill teams and vanguard vets go to shooty kill teams. A full squad of terminators kitted for shooting is like 500 pts so again be careful with it. If you take a squad of bikes make sure you remember to set up the free teleport homer. Also remember with your standard vets you can upgrade them with a chainsword and boltgun for free. You're special issue ammo is strong so don't give it up for no reason. It's better to pay the extra points for a combi plasma and keep the ammo instead of just a plasma gun.

Remember that you can take some Primaris units too so that can help you fill out your list. Boltstorm Aggressors are great to help bolster your shooting while Intercessors can give you cheap troops.

I want to homebrew an Iron Warriors Warband. What I had in mind, are a few elite Marine dudes and a bunch of cannon fodder humies, attached to as many artillery tanks as I can find.

I got the models built and stuff written out. My last issue, is the color scheme.

My original idea was to invert the original colors of the IWs, while keeping the Hazard Stripes, because they make me hard.

Those are the results via simulation. The golden scheme I call the Ore Barons, the black one Metal Corps. My internal turmoil:

>Ore Barons
+ unique scheme
+ looks pretty rad
- Gold looks weird in mass
- gold is fucking annoying to paint, especially in mass and full body

>Metal Corps
+ easy to paint
+ I like black
- looks very generic/boring/blacklegion without the hazard stripes
- hazard stripes don't look as good on a fully black background.

Which one should I take? Or scrap and try again?
