I hope I dont sound like a CAACfag but is 8th usually this ridiculous? I mean those primaris aggressor dudes got to fire at least 100 shots in one turn.

Shit tends to die fast and melee can nullify units very early in the game, I think it was just your list being a really generic mess probably without using many character buffs versus a list that knew what it was doing and being very effective at it.

A DA gunline is nasty shit but can be severely weakened if you add some melee shit and throw it him.

So in a bout of autism I decided to measure up the various Marine characters (and by various I mean metric fuckload) by how good they're in 1v1s. I used Asurmen as a measuring stick, since he's a very solid duelist and did a good job of separating the top tier from the rest. So, the Marines that made it past the "Asurmen line" (that is, were able to tie or beat him, killing him in equal or fewer turns than it took him to kill them) are:
>Marneus Calgar
Wins if shooting is included, ties otherwise
>Captain Lysander
Surprisingly deadly.
Ties with shooting, loses otherwise
>Gabriel Seth
Only with the proper psychic powers (Quickening and Smite)
>Logan Grimnar
>Arjac Rockfist
Another surprise hit, actually wins if we take it that his damage reduction works on mortal wounds (jury's still out)
Both tie usually, win with psychic powers
Wins slightly, but only due to his d6 Smite.
Being top of his class and Calgar but strictly better, Abbaddon wins
Tie, believe it or not. Bit of a glass cannon
Wins. 2fat4me.

Now on to FW shit, halfway through which even my autism ran out of fucks to give but hey.
>Lord Asterion Moloc
Top tier as usual, ties and nearly wins.
>Tyberos the Red Wake
>Thulsa Kane

And that's about it. That's the who's who of Marine duelists, not counting dreadnoughts. Everyone else loses to the pansy space elf. Now I'm off to ponder what to do with my life.

My Wraithlord setup is Sword, 2 flamers and 2 Shuriken Cannons. Seems to do alright but if your army is fast then I'd say don't take one; they're quite slow and have no means of going fast.

What I dislike about this newfangled primaris stuff is that it now no longer feels like a "fair" battle between space marines and chaos space marines anymore, when the space marines have this clear advantage. You know what I'm saying? The tension of brother vs brother took a hit. I feel like they need to add something of equivalent awesomeness as the "next level thing" to the other factions too, it feels like the others are being kinda let out in the cold here. It's not fair...

Use Genestealer Cults, with Acolytes and Neophytes representing different ratios of feline:human features, and for your patriarch and purebloods just use giant lion models like the Fantasy High Elf White Lion chariot or something 3rd party.

90 of them advancing (currently) at 5" + D6 +1" backed up by 3 nurgle demon princes (Death Guard) paired with 3 heralds, epidemius and 6 nurgle oblits has been a very solid game for me.

I typically run a herald, demon prince, bloat drone, 2 plague tanks, a melee defiler, and a crap load of lascannon helbrutes and cultists. Usually works out pretty good.

There are a couple new types of Nurgle Herald that would be the appropriate size to be a converted Branchwych in the new Daemon codex coming out. Also, a character GUO who's worshipped on primitive worlds as a nature and fertility god, which would fit your trees theme perfectly.

If you're sticking to pure Nurgle the Kurnoth Hunters would I guess have to be Beasts? Or you could figure out a way to add wings and mod them into some kind of counts-as plague drones?

I played around with the idea of A farseer on jetbike casting doom with 3 disintegrator ravagers to get some consistent 2d attacks in my army but it would have been like 240pts extra to make it work, and if I'm opening the floodgates to craftworld Eldar I might aswell take dark reapers. If I'm taking dark reapers I might aswell bring yvraine along and them I'm not really playing Dark Eldar anymore.

Mine are all for tieing up shooting units while my hitters like princes come in. I exclusively use contagion for my princes/oblits - I use the index psychic powers heavily as well because they target Nurgle Demons which DG princes and oblits count as. Overall it ends up as an effective horde with deeply screened buffing units with really effective hammers in the form of princes and oblits.

I mean plague bearers don't need anything to be good. 3 units of 30 is by itself really good. They have an innate -1 to be hit, a 5++/5+++, are reasonably effective in combat and far faster than your opponent thinks because they will always advance.

Don't evaluate them in the lens of needing psychic powers to be decent.

it is about 689. you will stick to 1000 pts for a month or so before noticing that everyone is playing 1500 and 2000 but you need that time to get used to the game and get a feel for what is good. 1k pt armies are somewhat hard to mix detachments with so read the rules carefully and weigh your pros and cons

Lets put some numbers to this

2x5 intercessors with bolt rifles, a power sword for each sergeant and a grenade launcher for each squad: 190

1x10 tactical squad with plasma, heavy bolter, combi plasma and power fist: 180

2x5 tactical squad with plasma, heavy bolter, combi plasma and power fist: 230

Shooting at MEQs in rapid fire range

Intercessors: 3.33 wounds dealt, 57 points per wound

1x10 tactical squad: 4.04 wounds dealt, 44 points per wound

2x5 tactical squads: 5.91 wounds dealt, 38 points per wound

So compared to a single kitted out tactical squad an intercessor squad loses about 20% shooting efficiency in exchange for a 100% increase in durability against most anti infantry weapons. Plus the extra 11 melee attacks.

>> No.57162808

>best case scenario and going first
>still inefficient

>> No.57162933

All marine troop choices are points inefficient compared to elites or fast attack in shooting by a wide margin. Tacticals and intercessors roles are solely for being a cheap(er) obsec MEQ blob to sit on objectives

Seriously against same targets aggressors are 31 points per wound (16! If they stand still)

>best case scenario
You really don’t want to see tacticals efficiency out of rapid fire range and moving
