2nd for Codex Chaos Daemons when?

>> No.57086092

OK, I've bought some Ironstriders for christmas and another 20 Kairics to turn into Corpuscarii, although I haven't got any guns for them yet and probably don't have enough random weapons lying around. What kits provide good numbers of techy small-arms to graft onto servitors? I considered Termagant kits, but those have a radically different aesthetic than any kind of Admech, even Genetors.

Also going to order some HQ parts from MI, but I haven't done that before and I'm not sure how to go about it. Do I go entirely through the webstore, or just send an email through the address on the website with product numbers, paypal address and postal address, or some weird hybrid thing or what?

Yes, the original founders of the Grey Knights legion geneseed was removed and in their place they were implanted with geneseed made from the flesh of the Emperor.

This is the Emperor's quote on the Grey Knights as being his only hope for mankind :

The only offensively useful psychic power is smite.

All other powers are only useful if they buff/debuff something.
Furthermore, there's not enough options for the really psyker heavy armies like GKs or 1Ksons to choose cool abilities from.

IMO they could easily fix the Psychic phase by creating a couple of "generic" offensive psychic powers, smite being one of them. Also, why the hell GW got the idea "Psychic Powers ONLY use Mortal wounds" is fucking retarded, since it's forced them to make every psychic power that isnt smite weak as shit.

I mean, FFS, I'd love to get my old GK "Puryfiying Flame" back as a 9" bubble that does 2d6 autohits at S5 AP-1 Ignores Cover. I dont understand why GW is so hellbent on pushing the "Psychic Power = Mortal Wounds" meme.

You got it in one. I mean, making psychic powers distinct from just more shooting via mortal wounds is fine I guess, but MWs are so strong that they have to limit them thoroughly in order to make them not OP. That, and GW simply can't into math, given that most powers have a lower damage output than Smite even before taking into account casting values.

I would remove Smite entirely honestly. Frees up room for singular strong psykers to get really damaging powers rather than have the optimal means of dealing damage in the psychic phase being spamming as many cheap Smiters as you can. Ahriman should be able to do more than d3 wounds per psychic phase.

You boys have it right, full on. The problem with the psychic phase right now is you’re stuck with one of three options which all can get abused to hell
1) no access to psykers; (tau, crons, Admech), and so get major league fucked against smite spam
2) access to a few psykers; (Imperial Guard, orks, chaos soup, etc.) usually really strong cause of smite spam and poor regulation on powers
3) psychic-focused army; (Thousand sons, grey knights, tzeentch and other daemons) get fucked over by the game-wide rules meant to keep group #2 in check, while usually not reaping its benefit.

Honeslty if they went aside and said the physcogc armies of group #3 don’t have psychic focus, it’d be a lot better. May take some recalibration to prevent army-wide warp time, but honeslty those guys are so shit as is I don’t see it meaning much.

It’d be a wet dream for armies to get non-MW psychic powers; d6 purifying flame hits (along with 2 fucking attacks GW, what the hell) on purifiers instead of that shit smite may actually be fun to toy around with. Same goes for most any army, a handful of spells instead of just smite would be excellent. That’s one of the things 7th and earlier did well that I’m sad are gone.

Well then here's my suggestion.
Go to https://www.games-workshop.com
Go look at the models from the Ork, Eldar and Chaos Demons range, specifically, have a look at their troops.
Pick the army who's basic grunts you like the most. You'll probably like most of the bigger models anyway, but to be happy with an army you have to like your normal ass soldiers.

For example, I love most of the Ork Warmachines and stuff like Big Meks and Meganobz, but I cannot stand the ork boy model. As such, I would never start Orks, since I cant see myself having to paint at least 30 Ork boys just to play the army.

Every army needs Troops models. If you like your troops, its a good army for you.

Yeah that's not a bad option - you might consider 2 5 man DAs with an exarch w/additional catapult instead of 1 10 man squad. They both fit in the serpent, you'll get 2 2 wound exarchs instead of 1 and you'll pick up another catapult's worth of shooting. Additionally 2 5 mans are less vulnerable to morale than 1 10 man.

I don't rate very many places as actually being good for reading up on Eldar tactics. I can tell you that Wraithknights are terrible now, they're over costed and under effective in the current edition so shy away from them. I know its a cesspool but DakkaDakka's tactica thread for Eldar has some good info, the problem is going through and parsing it.

Farseers can generate a decent chunk of MWs through Smite and Executioner but honestly are much much better as a buff factory using Doom and possibly guide (though I prefer doom and executioner). Doom is one of the best force multipliers in the game as it stands because it applies to your whole army.

I do most of my damage via a combination of shining spears (a great target for the webway stratagem or in a Saim-Hann detachment), dark reapers, and hemlock wraithfighters. I run multiple small units (MSU) dire avengers and rangers to act as board control, I use them to fence out deep strikers and similar units.

>>57087185

Depends - they will get shot at because they're fairly easy to kill and a bright lance does respectable damage. They're an easy early game kill that can also cost you an objective baby sitter. Ulthwe can also be feasible for a 6+++ on the unit. As a heads up nothing prevents you from painting your army in a color scheme of your choice and choosing the craftworld trait you like.

>Drukhari: 2 squads of 10 kabalites, each with a blaster, an archon, some hellions or reavers, and a raider

From my understanding, Hellguns are basically like machine guns but do not have the same penetrating power as Hot Shots, which are shooting a stronger more focused beam.

Hellguns require a huge backpack, while Hotshots only need a medium power cell you can have beneath your backpack.

Catachan is best for Battle Cannon Lemans. Re-rolling how many shots you get is really comfy and there's no order or anything necessary.

Valhallan is pretty good, it means you stay at top tier for 3 extra wounds. It isn't as good as I want it to be every time I run it though.

Tallarn is nice if you want to load up on Sponson guns.

Cadian is good, but better for something like a Punisher.

Because they are retarded and can't see the difference in detail. Plastic is much better as a material and is preferable for models where the loss of detail is irrelevant but resin has way better detail. Whether the detail is worth putting up with the bullshit of resin preparation is where individual preferences come in.

The plastic Tartaros are great, but compare them to resin and you see the shortcomings, especially in the knee. Plastic cataphractii and contemptor are just plain shit. The fact that you see so many plastic contempors being used is proof enough that you can't trust plasticfags.>>57088459

Try maxed-out conscripts supervised under a platoon/company commander with Checkov's 45. Back it up with 1 or 2 command squads kitted with flamers. This will ensure that no horde army will ever want to melee with you, as you autoburn anyone in contact with your near-fearless troops. If you have a spare order you can try fix bayonets though it only has a 50% chance of proc'ing.

Your tanks don't lose efficiency with health, so feel free to bring a Russes or Baneblade platform that almost never stops firing at BS4. That said, try to stick to the non-random shot Russes as you have no way of ensuring they roll a good number of shots.

Hot shots are basically a single shot battery for your lasgun. Instead of getting 30-100 shots, depending on your power setting, you get one shot that can pierce space marine armor, and will ruin your lasgun if you don't have replacement parts on hand. Hellguns are basically a dedicated hotshot with an entire battery pack you wear on your back.
What I'd do is keep hell guns as rapid fire 1, and then make hot shots into a one use assault 1 upgrade that otherwise has the same stats as a hellgun.

>“Barabbas,” they answered.
>“What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called the Messiah?” Pilate asked.

>“Why? What crime has he committed?” asked Pilate.
>But they shouted all the louder, “Crucify him!”
>When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. “I am innocent of this man’s blood,” he said. “It is your responsibility!”
>All the people answered, “His blood is on us and on our children!”

>All the people answered, “His blood is on us and on our children!”

The word "kike" is derived from the word "kikel", yiddish for circle. When filling out papers on Ellis island Jews would fill in check boxes with circles instead of crossing them.

Jews are Christ killers through and through.

Nietzche proclaimed the death of god, he wasn't his killer. And it wasn't triumphal either, he predicted that after the death of God humanity would oscillate between totalitarianism and nihilistic hedonism until the birth of the Ubermensch.

If white atheists have 1.3 kids and a dog and have open borders to brown muslims who have 6 kids, how do you think this is going to end? Pro tip, the West doesn't have magic dirt.
