Yes. You can do a light priming job that still has uneven color if you're basecoating your whole model. But you do need to prime.

Thin paint doesn't adhere to the bare plastic/metal/resin surface. Primer provides the paint with a surface to adhere and bond to.

Pretty sure that the cost-effectiveness of public transportation falls off a cliff with the lack of populations density that a lot of "newer" big American cities have.

Yeah these guys are the cannon fodder, they get stubbers because fucking anywhere can churn out stubber ammo. That doesn't explain the fifty different kinds of gun strapped to all their vehicles that aren't energy weapons but what does these days.
I guess all phosphor weapons save the Heavy Blasters fire basically the same round, but radcarbines and galvanics need their own bullets and the Icarus Array is just a mess.

Hoping that the helicopter gunship will either have twin HPhosphor or something else that actually does some damage, since we have easily enough anti-infantry already.

This would very well represent the discipline required to take aim and fire for maximum effect when you're about to receive a charge, with Guardsman conscripts shooting their flamers off too early for little effect, while well-drilled Space Marines wait until the last effective moment to melt those Orks inches before they reach their position.

Just hoping they don't screw us and make the gunship fire at BS4+ against ground targets or pack the shitty phosphor from the Kataphrons or something, which would be on theme. Shame phosphor fire doesn't strip cover from enemies for other units in this edition, or you could use strafing runs to pick out targets for everyone else to nail.

Bomber will probably be completely useless as is typical for those, but I think an air cavalry Skitarii clade would be kinda neat so I'm hoping you can fit AT somewhere and the transport can fit six models. Not too opposed to tossing in a few neutron onagers or whatever but it's cooler if more of the army is mounted up. Toss in an Inquisitor to use that Cyclonic Torpedo strat to represent higher altitude bombardment and go to town.

I mean, in an ideal world we get BS3+ base and BS2+ against ground targets, so it hits flyers on 4s with Hard To Hit since it's built for ground attack and apparently only has two main guns. Rear mount changes out for bombs on the bomber and the gunship has stubbers in the doors, so I think it's 4 stubbers 2 Hphosphor. whereas the transport is just 4 stubbers.

Let's go for round two of speculations for the Necron PA ! I think that the main update being a change to Gauss weaponry is not a bad idea.

Should it work like old poisoned weapons for the wound roll on vehicles ?
Double damage on vehicles seems too strong. 1 more damage flat on vehicles maybe? ( So D6+1 for HGC for example)

Any other ideas you might have ?
Can we definitely exclude new models being released?
I'd love to see some new canoptek units, but seems like all the niches are already filled.

In my opinion, they might go all out on psychic negation with gloom prism units or new options on vehicles.

Your argument would make sense if regular paints were just "slap on one coat on a primer and it'll look great" in their advertisement. Which they aren't. GW actually put out official guides etc to tell people not to do that then brought out contrast and told them to go back to their bad old habits.

Someone asked about Lucius deaths last night so I figured why not. Going through them in roughly chronological order.

>Angel Exterminatus
His first ever death. Stabbed through the hearts by the Raven Guard Nykona Sharrowkyn, who took no pride in the act. Lucius' body would later revive on its own in Fabius' lab.

>Slaves to Darkness
It's a blink-and-you'll-miss it moment, but before the Siege of Terra kicks off Lucius is said to have several faces swirling on his armor. This would mean he died a few times more during the Heresy, but I suspect it's just a mistake by the author.

Killed in a duel sometime shortly after the Heresy. Usually given as the first ever case of Lucius' body-snatching.

>Lucius: Pride and Fall
Lucius died from stepping on a landmine assembled by Tobias, a manufactorum worker. Tobias' face was said to be the seventh added to the armor. Exact date unknown.

>Index Astartes: Company Champions
Killed in 237.M38 by the Iron Hands' Clan Champion Oros Telemar and his honor guard after a week of fighting. Telemar, the sole survivor, seemingly went mad on the ship voyage back and ejected himself in an escape pod.

>The Eternal Duelist
An entry in the 8th CSM codex. Lucius is killed by the Phasing Sword, a Necron duelist. Lucius revived in his body the same as always. Date unknown.

>In Wolves' Clothing
Lucius let himself be killed by the Space Wolf champion Hrothgir to infiltrate his ship. By this time he has dozens of souls bound in his armor. Exact date unknown, but sometime "ten millennia" after the Heresy.

>Lucius: The Faultless Blade
Mentioned in passing in M41 to have died on Celpsys, Dontul, at the Forrange Reef, and "a dozen or so other places". Circumstances and dates of these deaths are not given.

That's at least most of them. I think he was also said to have gotten crushed by a space station at some point, but I couldn't find a mention of it so take it or leave it.

Imagine having a hidden bug that prevents a clean reset so a kernel of memory is kept every time, just enough so after the reset and continuing your own logical resoning that always ends up in the same spot that triggers the magus automatic reset and compliance system.
