Looking to start up a brand new army and taking a serious look at a Nidzilla list. I find it pretty cool that almost every category has at least one monstrous creature in it (HQ, Elite, Heavy, etc).

I added your folder to my OP, it's just this guy missed it, somehow. The thread isn't even at 300. So now I gotta stay up and make sure the pasta survives past when I'm awake by making the new thread after both sage.

As for completeness: you are missing dual formats for rulebooks. I checked the Damocles section and noted that while you had Montka and Kauyon, you were missing the scan from Burning Dawn/Shadowforce Solaq, which is part of the Damocles series.

And in the black library bit, I think you are doing good, but I've come across The greater Evil in both PDF and Epub, but couldn't find it in your mega.

Is this viable as a death guard list? I just started collecting them (got dark imperium, then another set of it and the blightlords & 1 crawler so far) and I've never really played much before. I've got another variant of the list where the crawlers and poxwalkers are replaced with two bloat drones.

Posted this in the last thread but got no replies.

Haven't played a game since the end of 4th ed/start of 5th but lately have been getting into modelling and my heretic chaos cult are starting to come together.

Taken me ages on and off to start to get close to a 600 point list using GSC index. Just want to know if this army can be competitive at all in friendly games. Don't really care about winning but would be nice if the list is fun or will be competitive against casual gamers.

Also what should I look out for when playing 8th? Any huge changes since 4th besides vehicles obviously?

The +1 to wound on the charge is pretty glorious.
Deepstrike the priest with the sanguinary guard to give them a rerollable 3+ to hit, S5 treated as one bracket higher (that means wounding T4 on a 2+).

There's probably a more efficient way to abuse this awesome chapter tactic, but this was just a quick test.

It's an awful colour scheme but it does seem well painted from a technical standpoint. Kind of hard to tell because of the blurry images though.

Making my Archon now and I've just got this feeling of dread that the weapons I've picked out for him will be useless once the Dark Eldar codex drops.

Is there a way to get over this? I could try magnetizing but it seems stupid for such a small model.

>> No.56652198

It's also easy and quick to do, you just put all the models on the table and 2 hours later you are done for a 2k army. The painting after the airbrush is what makes airbrush paintjobs pop, and that's the time-consuming part (that this taufaggot didn't do)

>> No.56652219

As an avid airbrush fan it's ass hats like this that make people think using an air brush requires no skill and is lazy.

Spraying a lighter shade in areas (whether it would be highlighted or not IRL) to make contrast so the model stands out and calling Pro painted is absolute shite.

Don't even get me started on the guys who blast white/very light blue over a light source and calls it OSL.

I guarantee if you took away the airbrush from the guy who painted these his models would look like shit.

A airbrush is a tool in a painters kits, it shouldn't be a crutch.

Make sure you build dragoons as the ranged variant is doodoo. You'll need the melee support anyway.

Conscripts bumped to 4 pts was retarded. They could have just had a tag “Conscripts RFG” and it would be the same thing. If conscripts could have something other than just a big 30 man blob and no rules about orders failing half the time, you could make an argument to justify the cost, but this change was just cementing the GW sales pitch of “Your infantry suck again, but hey, look how great your tanks are!

You don't need them. The +1 to hit stratagem is nice but it's by no means needed on Mars, Cawl already means you're hitting quite a bit.

From older lore, it was clear that there definitely have been librarians that fell (see Mephiston), but they are kept under closer eye than most, given the devastation a Black Rage induced Librarian would be.

>> No.56652768

The FW Vanquishers tend to mitigate that fact.
You have the Stygies pattern which gives you +1 to hit if you stand still, and a coaxial stormbolter allowing you to reroll failed hits for the main gun if it targets the same unit as the stormbolter.

Then you have the Mars Alpha pattern. It's a normal Vanquisher, but it has a coaxial heavy stubber, so that reroll effect can be used on a target up to 36" away instead of only 24" for the Stygies Pattern's stormbolter.

They're still average weapons, but much better than the GW basic Vanquisher. Also, the minis sport actually huge cannons, making them awesome.

>Expecting sense from death company lore

This is the faction that has death company executed if they win on one hand, and a tower full of death company on the other. That expects you to have enough Angels go Berzerk before a single battle to form entire units, then be killed off before the next.

>> No.56652808

The BR's greatest strength is its armor piercing value. But in the end, a squad of 6 can only shoot 6 dice if the target is more than 15" away. That's why I'm tempted to have my second squad armed with ABRs, because it would allow them to get some more firepower in the early game, with their 24" range, assault 2.

The TPD, make him cheap, he isn't going to be attacking most of the time, just behind robots/onagers repairing them with something like autocduceus + necromechanic (1d3 + 1 per turn rerolling), and after you get Cawl and an enginseer the TPD will become a great paperweight

Well in canon, Blood Angels does a somewhat quicker turn over time. After selection, discounting trials, it's only takes a year to go from baseline Human to full Astartes, minus black carapace.

What the fuck is with this retarded order of listing wargear? Just do something reasonable like Wings first (since it changes base cost), then weapons, then biomorphs, then Psychic powers, instead of jumbling it all together and splitting things like that.

Yeah, having an extra rank of guys out of melee range to cycle forwards works, having a giant block of troops with only two rows fighting makes them wound counters you need to buy, build and paint.

The crazy thing is, they haven't learned shit. I tried to look into AoS after the general's handbook, and pretty much every faction I had any interest in outside of narrowly defined gimmick lists required huge blocks of core troops to function, sometimes more than the same faction woulda needed me to buy for 8th!

I'm just kinda making a wraith soup, because those are the models that appeal to me. I'm sure some transports wouldn't hurt but this is the earliest possible stage of planning what I want.

I really like the idea of fucking up characters with morale bombs (-2 Mindshock Pods, -1 Horrify, Embolden'd Farseer uses mind war for a fun game of Ld 12 vs Ld~6 with mortal wounds on the line) Could even get a wraithseer involved for another -1 to the enemy morale using Foreboding.

Any thoughts or advice?

I think it was only a couple of White Dwarfs back that GW said they were getting flak for lack of female characters, and they said they have stuff planned but it was a long way off.

>Leviathan undercosted

The frame? God no. It's pretty much right on point for such a heavy model: Expensive enough to make you a little hesitant to take one, but still at a point where you can get good return if you do. It'll either last most of the game or tank the entire opposing army's shooting for a turn and earn it's pay as a distraction.

Was the Grav-flux bombard undercosted? Hell yes, I ripped a Wraithknight to it's knees with one flux the first time I fielded it, left it easy pickings.

Why does anyone use Dominions? For more than double the points you're trading 12 S4 AP0 attacks for 3.5 S5 AP-1 attacks and one extra melta shot. Plus, the Seraphim are probably more survivable since they can charge something after shooting, while the Dominions have to sit there and get their shit wrecked.

3 foot range vs 6 foot range is pointless, both can hit the entire table. Besides, it's a lot easier to defeat the Dominions' gimmick since they can't end their redeploy move within 9" of an enemy model. And Seraphim are actually pretty okay in a fight, while the Dominions are going to get stomped in the assault right after their transport gets nuked.

Melta range rule is the difference. With Dominions you can reliably get withing 6”
While with Seraphims getting within 3” is harder.

Also 12”+D6” before first turn. Will get you close enough without needing AoF witch you can only get for 1 units, 2 with Celestine. Any other Seraphim squad will need 4+ lucky roll.
While Dominions will get their alpha strike every game.

I use both, Seraphims is the clean up crew for Dominions. Hence why every decent SoB player runs 3 Dominions and 1-2 Seraphims

Regular space marines with pure geneseeds live to be centuries old, but not millenia. They tend to either die or go insane before old age begins to hinder them, though. There's also the state of suspended animations most space marines can enter which allows a space marine to let time pass without aging, essentially, though they're obviously in a comatose state the entire time.
Blood angels appear to be especially long-lived due to their mutated geneseed, but due to their black rage, the insanity rule applies doubly. Finally, once a space marine is interred in a dreadnought, his lifespan is as long as his mechanical sarcophagus is maintained. Bjorn is insanely old, and while some writers depict him as senile, he's still competent enough a lot of the time.
