It's referring to the fact that you can't target characters if there is a unit between your shooting unit and said character, even if the enemy unit that is preventing you from targeting a character is fully obscured.

>Matched Play games get a lot of attention, too. There are some fairly large shake-ups. For one, the Character targeting rule changed, disallowing you from targeting them if any enemy models are closer, whether they are visible or not. This is both good and bad, as for one, a hidden unit closer to you stops you form shooting a character in the wide open which is annoying, but it also prevents “Rhino-scoping” which is intentionally moving models to block your line of sight to anything but a character, thereby getting around the old Character protection rules, which was also mega annoying. -Reecius

The new rule is meant to eliminate confusion/cheese about whether you can target characters who are the closest visible unit, as long as other closer units are not visible.

It did that fine, but changed 10 Wounds Characteristic to 10 Wounds, meaning that grognards will argue that because you shot his Hive Tyrant down to 9 wounds, he's immune from further shooting until he's on top of you.

It also removes the limitation "shooting phase" and replaces it with "firer." So it now works during overwatch, and potentially during psychic or even fight depending on how autistic an asshole tries to get.

They could have reprinted and changed half a phrase, but instead they rewrote it and made it look like they were trying hard not to copy from the 8th rulebook.

>> No.56701725

The sept color is the little pinstripes, and it marks all units from a particular sept or colony as belonging to that force. Usually it's just on the guns/helmet, and maybe shoulder pad as the markings. The actual armor/theatre/parade colors past that are (supposed to be) unique to the theatre.

The shape of each marking is also largely unimportant, and they can be unified or depict different teams.

the short hand is if it takes up half a helmet, it's a rank higher, and a whole helmet without the vein, another rank higher. And if it takes up the entire helmet and has the sept markings in the default army color, it's a shas'o.

Rank is usually designated by helmet and/or shoulder pads being filled with sept-color.

You can also make the sept color very prominate, and nearly invert the armor/sept colors to signify an elite/specialist unit (See Infiltration Cadre Burning Dawn as an example of T'au specialists.)

You can go higher than that, combining both rank and elites, and make the entire armor in the sept color, with basic armor/theatre/parade color as the sept marking. And that's how you get the big shas'o heroes like Farsight, Shadowsun, and the DoW champions.

I can understand that but your chapter tactics aren't everything. I play Black Templars and Imperial Fists and the number of times either chapter tactic has made a meaningful difference is pretty low. That doesn't stop me from getting new models and expanding my crusade, I even put together 4 devastator squads of heavy bolters for my Fists just because they look awesome aesthetically. I also am never adding a psyker to my collection because I want to stay true to my Black Templars in abhoring the witch. Does that put me at a disadvantage? Of course, but that doesn't mean I'll abandon my armies or how I want to play them. I'm still including an Emperor's Champion every game no matter how many times he is killed before hitting first or giving up my warlord. I'm still going to run choppy crusader squads across the board at my feeble opponent despite their pitiful damage and I'm going to add even moar dakka to my Imperial Fists with customized and converted centurions because it'll be awesome!
If you truly love your army, you'll never worry about disadvantages or challenging matchups because you'll want to see it on the board kicking ass without a care to the outcome. The VII legion calls to you brother, will you honor us?

What’s the math of using it on 10 tank bustas shooting a vehicle? 5+ to hit rerolling all misses is just a little bit better than 50%.

Melee is strong as fuck if you’re playing the right factions but not usually on marines and I don’t think BA have the ability to pull off turn 1 charges.
+1 to wound means a strength 4 BA wounds marines on 3+ and up to toughness 7 on 4+, they’re tearing tanks apart with their bare hands.

not really. a better way to think about it is "will this unit get at least it's points back?". A lot of people do mathhammer in terms of "points per wound" for example.

5 squishy veterans loaded out to the teeth probably won't get their points back in most situations - if everything goes perfectly they'll kill quite a lot of shit, but otherwise they'll probably get wiped out after a turn of shooting. This is why deathwatch suck.

The same amount of points spent on Terminators will do a lot better, however, as they might last a few more turns.

of course it's not really that simple because you have things like opportunity cost, objectives, counters etc to consider but it's a good rule of thumb.

Much better to pick the character who actually has...character. The one who actually worked to get the SoS together and stop a Dark Eldar after they reached the throne room.

While the other sat on his ass and fucked the imperium, and then has a single line of him attacking demons that he pretty much caused in the first place.

I can understand why though. They're an endless horde of mindless bugs. They make a good antagonist because there isn't any grey area with them, they want to eat you, end of story. No room for diplomacy, or nuance, it's pure survival, other races against Tyranids so of course they're going to fulfil the role of the enemy who the heroic Imperium/Eldar/Tau triumph over a lot.

Be satisfied with getting an actual HQ to run your army with.
If the guy triggers you so much, just glue on a different face or a helmet and run him as a "counts as" version of your character.

>5+ to hit rerolling all misses is just a little bit better than 50%
Yes, here's why
First they roll to hit, hitting 1/3 shot.
They miss 2/3, but they get to reroll those.
They hit 1/3 out of those 2/3, that's 2/9 of their total.
Then you add that to the 1/3 that already hit, 1/3 + 2/9 = 3/9 + 2/9 = 5/9.

Why would anyone ever puta Plasma Cannon on their dreadnought rather than Twin Lascannons? A Plasma cannon can overheat, killing your expensive, multi-wound model instantly, has less range, less strength, statistically the same number of hits (D3 rather than the Lascannons 2) and statistically less damage (2 rather than D6)
Why is it even an option?

Or you could do 2/3 times by 2/3 to get that they miss 4/9 times so must hit 5/9 times.

I was wondering about how much the 6+ to hit would do. 10/6 tines by 5/9 is about 0.875 extra hits... but the reroll makes them more likely to get 6s giving them about 0.61 extra rokkit hits.
So 10 tank bustas, using the stratagem would hit about 7 times?

Psychic scourge is a gimped version of smite. So no, its not good.

>> No.56704342


Nope. It's like a drug addiction, slaanesh is eating their souls causing them to wither away, torturing and murdering is their fix to relieve the withdrawal. Take away the addiction and it loses its High.

Some might but there's no reason for them to continue, the currency of Commeragh will collapse, haemonculi will be out of work and the regeneration VATs won't work anymore.

Agreed, but without the 'fix' of relieving slaanesh draining them, all they're getting is the thrill of torturing. Without the fix side of it the torturing doesn't have the same appeal to dudes who've been doing it for thousands of years.

>> No.56704404

Why not? Custodes are some of the most powerful warriors in the Imperium, it's kind of a waste having 10,000 of them sitting on their asses. Even 100 of them could turn the tide of a battle so why not send a few off to actually get some shit done?

>> No.56704410

They do invent new torture devices quite often to make it thrilling again, but the "fun " of torturing people is just a nice extra to them, not a must have.
