It does apply to homebrew Chapters and Chapters without successors. Guilliman is named Ultramarines only, and unavailable to successors, for example.

40k novels:

I highly recommend Deathwatch by Steve Parker and the associated short stories, Headhunted and Exhumed.

Baneblade, Shadowsword, and the 2 short stories, Stormlord and Iron Harvest (Read this one before Shadowsword, it will make the crew much more likeable, in a Brothers in Arms sort of way) by Based Guy Haley (generally speaking Haley is a good pick).

Dead Men Walking for one of the most grimdark book about 40k, featuring the KDK, by Steve Lyons. Fantastic but super depressing. The short story Down Amongst the Dead Men by the same author deals with "training" on Krieg is equally good and depressing.
15 Hours is also one of the best IG book there is around.

Red Tithe by Robbie McNiven and Eye of Medusa by David Guymer are two excellent books giving loads of background information about, respectively, the Carcharodons and the Iron Hands (I have to say, I'm a Carcharodons player but hot diddly damn Eye of Medusa was good, IH are scary and brutal as fuck in this book)

Death of Antagonis and Warden of the Blade by David Annandale are solid books as well, one flushes out the Black Dragons nicely and the 2nd is about Castellan Crowe, and a fantastic insight on the perils of the GK and the bearer of the blade of Ant'wyr in particular. Manages to make him non Mary-Sue.

Watchers of the Throne by Wraight is tip top, great to understand the Imperium and Terra a lot more and to know what happened there when the Great Rift opened. With Dark Imperium by Guy Haley, it's the book to read to understand what's going on in 40k in 8th ed.

Pdf related is also a great book, it's everything a book about an unknown chapter should be. I like to share it around since it was take from the BL site 2 weeks before release because of legal problems, so poor Kearney wrote a whole damn novel for nothing, and I suspect he is the one that put up his novel on torrents so that it's not forgotten.

It was an omnibus, my bad senpai

Ok, fun might have been a bit too vague. It's fun like... 80's action movies are fun. Big dudes with big muscles and nothing to loose do cool shit because the only other option is deaaaaath. It gets pretty grim in some places I know, I was surprised too but I certainly thought it was a page turner. I liked it enough to be pissed off Colonel Schaeffer wasn't a named character anymore.

Also if you like The Last Chancers check out the Dark Angels omnibus, same author and it's a pretty interesting read about three assholes and their consistently bad decisions.

Well, the first step is to learn from the Natives and only do outdoor labor in the morning and the evening. Only the tough and/or stupid work after 11:00am. Up until then it isn't "Cool" but it is temperate.

The second tip is never stand in direct sunlight. You'd be suprised how often I see people -especially from the north- who try to stand in the sun and hold a conversation when a nice, big shady Oak is just a few yards away.

Wear a hat, never leave home without sunglasses, and if you're REALLY fair-skinned then apply sunblock or grab one of those Arabian-style longsleeved lightweight clothes to block the sun.

Don't try to prime in the Summer. Don't try to anything model-related in the summer. For God's sake don't leave anything in the car in the summer and consider a screened sunroof to let the hot air out.

Way too many points in transports. Especially the drop pods. Gear some of your Tacs to stay on foot with a heavy weapon and hold objectives in your backfield. Drop the Pods entirely. Pods are for giving mobility to priority model that don't have other options, like non-jump special characters. But Lascannon Sponsons on Your Predator. Try to get another Pred or Two with saved points. MSU your Tacs. Two five man squads, not Ten man squads. Go Melta, Combi-Melta, not Multi-Meltas. Vanguard Vets not Assault Marines. Drop models if you have to. Put special weapons on your bikersm Consider dividing them if you have two. For god sake get two five man squads of barebones scouts.

That's not how it works. The Chart explains it clearly that for Datasheets with no sheet or wargear options from a sheet that are not in the codex you may use the index. However, in all cases you must use the updated codex rules for anything in anything you buy, even off an index wargear list. I.e. you can choose to use old cheaper Meltaguns or Plasmaguns for something you're buying from the index. You would have to use their changed points cost even if you were using an index wargear list.

The FAQ entry is clarifying you're not allowed to just ignore the Codex entirely and use a purely Index entry with index points, index special rules etc. That was allowed in some past editions (Old and New versions of a lot of the stuff in Imperial Agents for example) but is explicitly not allowed for anything in 8th.

Multiple Small Units. Basically taking two five man squads lets you take more special weapons and you can still stuff them in one Rhino if you want. Generally you should only take large squads of Marines if you have stratagems or psychic powers which usually have limited uses per turn that you want to spread across the most number of models possible. I don't believe that's the case here for your Tacticals. Generally you see it on big nasty hammer units like 15 man Death Company or 10 man Chaos Terminators. Not roleplayers like Tacticals.

Right, but here's what gets me. Sanguinary Priests in the Index can take Jump Packs. On the Codex datasheet it's not an option. Why would they not include all their options and tell you to pick from the Index instead and ignore the limitations in the Codex? Why would you make new datasheets only to say "Oh yeah, just ignore that it's not in the book. Pick whatever you want from the Index." What's the point of the new sheet? It doesn't add anything, just subtracts (which you then ignore and use the gear from the Index)

No, he's wrong. Rerolls are always before modifiers. You roll a 1, reroll, then whatever you get you add a +1 to.

Actually wait do I have that?

Huh, this is actually pretty complicated. Especially the example at the end where the Dread misses because he moved and doesn't get a reroll because he hit before the -1 modifier gets applied.

Ah yeah that's true.

Would think they'd let you reroll and rolls.

Is it bad that I'm actually really tempted to collect a Death Guard army just to run Morty? His model is so nice...

I disagree

Named characters are so gay.
Also hate his look. I really hope he's not perimount to a death guard army.

They were like $12 for 4 back when the Overkill set first came out. Hell, Marine players were selling the entire GSC part of the box for $50 at the time, I ended up with 3 sets of them.

A few months later and GW actually dropped a codex for them, ebay prices skyrocketed over night.

DG Defiler with prescience, virulent blessing, and blades of putrefaction, can even add a lord for rr1 and diabolic strength for lulz. 8 attacks 3+/2+ with double damage and an extra mortal wound on 5+.

How you get virulent and diabolic?

Nah, there's plenty of DG lists that work without running him, strong as he is. IMO DG, IG, Eldar and Nids are the winners for avoiding monobuild and having good internal balance in 8th so far.

Morty can be a really satisfying model to build but its very time consuming and can feel very fragile. Those wings have two very small glue points and all those chains will bump something every time the model is touched. I haven't had a huge amount of luck in-game with him either, though my rolling probably has something to do with it.

Death Guard are still tough but don't have the same flexibility and firepower they used to. Collect them if you like them, not because you like one model. That's my suggestion.
