Question for white men: why do you even bother? Your women find you repulsive and are leaving you in droves for Asian and black men. You’re being replaced at work by Asian men who are smarter than you and Latinos who work harder than you. Your sports are dominated by blacks who are stronger than you. Increasingly your jobs are being owned by Chinese corporations. Name one single thing whites are dominated by a minority at and I’ll concede but it legit just looks like you guys are the weakest and most feeble race right now. Maybe it was always like that. The sun itself kills you ffs

First match was a win vs Death Guard, but only on victory points and only just barely. If it had gone a little longer I am pretty sure I would have struggled, the Blightlords had pretty much uncontested control of one corner of the board.

Second match was a loss vs Eldar; I felt like I started off strong on this one but as it went on a mix of the Wraithknight sinking a lot of damage and some deep striking Guardians gunning down my objective holders meant they won with a fairly solid margin on objectives.
The DG and Eldar player still have to have their last match but we've been using the campaign points from Urban Conquest and the DG have won pretty comfortably there; they were pretty dominant in the early rounds when the points were small and have held onto the Imperial Palace and a couple of other locations that really raked in the points for them

Was a pretty fun campaign all in all though; we're going to start up another one in a month or so, I'll have to decide between my newish Word Bearers or my old Dark Eldar next time.

No, you get bonuses for having monogod detachments but the tzeentch one sucks anyway.
I play mono tzeentch myself and certainly won't tell you not to go for them, but they're not super competitive by any measure. Flamers are pretty solid when supported though, and Screamers hit harder than people expect, but all your stuff is pretty fragile. You also don't have the psychic dominance you might think Tzeentch would aside from the Lord of Change/Kairos.

they're just kind of redundant, you'd run pinks if you wanted better stats and the brimstones if you want battalion filler and screens. In AoS the splittling is part of the Pinks cost so if you're not taking them its a big waste, but if you're playing 40k only don't worry about it.

I want the new television show to be good. Helsreach was great - for a one-man YouTube production. Angels of Death seems like that level of production value being marketed as a full-scale television/streaming service program. The trailers look awful, with excess amounts of darkness bro g used to cover the shoddy special effects. I'm not saying I need a Michael Bay level of OTT CGI action, but I'm apprehensive that my beloved GW's first real foray into television is going to be a massive flop and deter people from playing Warhammer.

1k point game my orks vs waacfag friend's ultramarines. We did secure and control at an FLGS. From memory, he bought two lieutenants, a captain, some intercessors, some hellblasters, a dreadnought, and some inceptors. This was versus my wartrike, zap gun big mek, 30 gretchin, trukk, battlewagon, morkanaut, and megatrakk scrapjet. He basically spent the whole game camped in his deployment zone, rerolling almost all his 1s on hits and wounds. He started off by immediately targeting my battlewagon (which made me pissed because I had spent the weekend painting it and was looking forward to seeing it in action) luckily it managed to tank 13 wounds so I actually got a chance to use it. My first turn I made short work of his dreadnought with my scrapjet and morkanaut, netting me first blood and the VP I needed to win. The rest of the game was pretty much me playing against a brick wall until late in the game when he realised he hadn't moved all game, so he still hadn't taken my control point, so he deepstriked his inceptors and then took forever on his last turn as I just needed to get some gretchin on my objective to win, as the game needed to end prematurely due to store closing for lunch. Manager made sure I got at least my movement and shooting phase, so I managed to win with a single point lead.

Cybers are the lads that allow you to change the mode that the bots are in. they have a powerfist and a pistol and nothing else.
They are mostly useless, as you roll a dice turn 1 to see if you can change the mode and it changes next turn. Or you pay 1cp and change it instantly which is far better if you are using punchbots so they can get use the better shields for overwatch and then fight twice.

Are you looking for pulp fiction (heh, heh) or "high-quality" literature?

If the earlier, pretty much pick the topic/race/event you want to read about, and then google black library books on it. Some personal favourites of mine are

-First three Ciaphas Cain books
-The Adepta Sororitas duology
-Imperial Glory, which is basically Catch-22 but with the Guard
-Execution Hour
-Mathias Thulmann trilogy
-Brunner the bounty hunter trilogy
-The first six Gotrek and Felix books
-Kal Jerico: Blood Royal


Honestly, the only book I just didn't like at all was Wine of Dreams.

If the latter, don't read Black Library because it's not what you're looking for, but also don't necessarily bash it because it's not up to your standards.

Even if you like the fluff and lore, this series is just a waste of time, cause it takes away the mythology of the setting, what little mystery there was had to be obnoxiously explained.

Like: How was Horus lured to worship Chaos in the first place? We didn't know, but it must have been something dark and impressive...
Meanwhile in Horus Heresy:
>Horus is pretty much an idiot who falls for the dumbest trick in a book.
It's a running theme of those books, like all the characters that we were told were super skilled, intelligent, exemplar strategic genius each, turns out to be really angry impulsive spastic that has to be explained the basic tactics by his subordinates (No joke! Horus is schooled by some rando marines why they should bomb the LZ from orbit before they land to pin the enemy) obviously Horus doesn't listen, the casualties are needlessly higher... alas! he get's shit done, cause he got really angry, and by Anime logic, when you get angry, everything works out.

I don't get how this grew up around that novel. And it is a shame, it is a great novel and really captures life in the Guard so well, with the dark humour 40k is best for. It doesn't deserve this memery besmirching its name.

There being some average life-expectancy for Guardsmen isn't the point of the novel at all. The Guardsmen in the novel don't bother learning 'Newfish's name after he crash lands into their warzone before the 15 hour mark because they say that most new frontliners who die, die within their first fifteen hours. If you make it beyond that, you're probably smart/lucky enough to survive long-term so they'll bother to learn your name.

There is no claim the book that 15 hours is the average life expectancy for that theatre, it clearly isn't, the trench Newfish finds himself in is full of veterans who've been there since day one, if the average life expectancy was 15 hours, there'd be barely anyone in the trench with more than 48 hours experience! Nor does it make the even more preposterous claim that there is some Imperium-wide average life expectancy for a Guardsman of 15 hours. Hell, if you get deployed against some shit like a 'Nid hive fleet it is probably a lot less whilst if you're deployed against Humans like Gaunt's Ghosts are, much, much more.

He leads the Grey Knights' assault on the Emperor's throne room and offers a brief silence. He then confronts the Emperor and tells him that he and the Emperor are lost. He then kills him using his silver claws, and proclaims his claim to the throne. He is seen telling his time had come. His activities were first noted by the Inquisition.

Don't have underlings use "my lord" more than once in a sentence, and preferably only once in a conversation, unless you're -really- drilling it home that they are their superior. It can also be used as a point of objection like "B-but my lord, that plan is impossible!"

Also, you deliver the Emperor's Mercy when executing someone, but it's only called that when done on loyalists or those who are deemed redeemed on the moment of death.

Not that anon, though my personal issue with BL is it has taken itself too seriously, when pulpy fiction to sell miniatures should be somewhat more self-aware of it's origins.
It also tends to lack the genuine awe and comfy reading feel of a classic Elric, Conan or Lovecraft pulp story.
Thing with BL is it's pulp fiction that wants to be higher artistic serious literature and fails to entertain fully as either for that.

HH could have worked as a trilogy of three (3 for emphasis on this) novels that covered everything. First one detailing the fall of Horus and why, the second one the main conflict and war, the finale having the Seige of Terra and ending with the Emperor interred in the Golden Throne.
Don't have them try to overly seriousness it or make it realistic, tell the events as if they were some legendary event of demigods and men that may have happened in the Imperium's prehistory and that would have been amazing.

I mostly play Tyranids, who only had a brief moment of being good this edition, so no. I got into GSC for fluff reasons when they came out in 7e, but since they were a brand new army, I hadn’t been playing them for years.

they are all on order produced books, the only reason to touch any GW book is if you got a hardon for a specific chapter/regiment/sept/craftworld etc
