Craftworlders got psykers which combo well with their strats, get good access to fearless buffs to hold the line, are a smaller and more elite army, though like the Deldar they go squish easily and are weaker in melee than Deldar so usually are more a shooty force.
Drukhari generally have massive speed, buffs are more cumulative in a game than Craftworld strats and redeploy/deepstrike trickery, poison weapons always wound non-vehicles on a 4+ to btfo high T characters or elites, though those have no ap, Deldar also lack psykers, keywords are more important (as there are three types in their codex; kabalites, wychs and haemonculi)

The Custodes are enforcing it under declaring those who turn them down Primaris.
> As part of this crusade, the Ultramarines Primarch intends to bear Primaris Space Marine reinforcements and the secrets behind their creation to the far-flung and hard-pressed Space Marine Chapters. On the eve of his decision, a large number of Emissaries Imperatus step forwards, compelled by the spirit of the Emperor to accompany the crusade.
> When the Primarch announced his intention to bear the secrets of the Primaris Space Marines to the Loyalist Chapters, there was some resistance from the Adeptus Custodes, who feared strengthening those who might one day rebel against the Emperor once again. Yet dozens of Emissaries Imperatus stepped forwards to intercede, stating this was the will of the Emperor. They accompanied Guilliman's Crusade, many of them taking to the air as Vertus Praetors, the quicker to deliver messages of reinforcement to the embattled Space Marines. The presence of the Adeptus Custodes also ensured that even the most traditional Chapters accepted the Primaris warriors into their ranks. One does not decline a gift from the Emperor's own hand, after all.

I love them both equally so it's not a question of choosing the one I like the most.

I think 8th fixed a lot of stuff like vehicles basically being unkillable if you killed anti-armor but also killed a lot of other fun things. I think removing blast templates was good for competitive but awful for casual because most blast weapons now feel like garbage to use. Before it was mostly making sure you're not playing against a WAAC player who spends 30 minutes each turn perfectly spacing out their troops.

A lot of armies lost unique stuff about them. Renegade Guard were hard nerfed, lost 90% of their customization, and then got discontinued altogether. Regular Guard lost interesting stuff like artillery crews and Cyclops Demolition Vehicle air attacks. SoS were made useless by GW nerfing their null power into oblivion.

I want to play a shambling hoard with my Death Guard. I don't think this will do that well, but would it be any fun to play against? Or is it too many bodies with FnP that slow down the game and it's just annoying even if you win.

The best times I've had in this hobby were casual games. Every tournament seemed like a chore and a grind.

True, they are great. I suppose I could drop the second daemon prince and the 10 man squad to make 10 Blightlords. My plan was to just cloud of flies the 10 man Plague Marine squad so they couldn't be targeted as they moved up the field, but it is likely they won't make it.

I think ideally, you deepstrike them in near important parts of the battlefield and then use them to lock that area down, so you don't do a lot of running around.

Because there's little common basis for discussing rules for casual play with total strangers on the internet. Discussing house rules or a narrative scenario with your friend you plan to play? Great! Discussing the same with random people here? Most people aren't going to care even if they have a similar play group since they'll be doing something else. Everyone's casual play tends to be a little different in ways that can make them wildly divergent games in practice. Competitive matched play provides a near universal framework and context for discussing the game. And since everyone understands it to a certain extent even if it's only hard fought pickup games, it's naturally going to dominate discussion.

Another tip is if you need good psychic powers like prescience and warptime, you can add a CSM codex sorcerer and as since you can give it the nurgle Faction keyword you can have a nurgle detachment instead of a DG detachment.

Yeah that's pretty insane. Now that Deathshroud are only like 42 points a model, I'm tempted to use them more. A Blightlord bomb is great, but expensive. 3 Deathshroud are only 126 points. I just noticed today that they are S5, so their Manreapers make them S8. Basically they have Powerfists that don't suffer -1 to hit. I'd like to use a squad or two to target weak units. I usually use a Lord of Contagion or two to do that, but 3 Deathshroud are similar points, but get more attacks and hit harder.

I mean, you're likely going to be dropping them turn 3 since it will take Death Guard more time to get there. But when you have Plagueburst Crawlers and Bloat Drones zipping up, then you have target saturation and the Deathshroud are hitting stuff you know they will kill.

Looking good mate, have you though about hitting the carapace with a red wash to try and make it look like the black is a super dark red an the edges are just bringing it out?

Sick. Just blend the red back into the black and it would be killer. At the moment its just this kinda unnatural red binding, but 8f it was more of a gradient it would rule.

Give the bases a layer of pva before you put on the cracking paints. It helps to make better defined cracks. Afterwards touch them up how you want and use either the watered down pva or varnish.

>> No.70680656

I just work on keeping it as neat as possible in that case, and my idea of a red wash would keep that effect but tie it in a little more by just giving the hint of red in the black imo. But really you're doing good work anon
