I made the concession to Primaris even existing because I wanted to leave the door open to make a Primaris Kill Team in the future or something.

I figure Custodes should never leave earth so I ignore them even being an army because it's dumb, SoB won't get embroiled in Marine internal affairs (for now. If I regularly start fighting a SoB player I can change that). The Primaris for my dudes never arrived because their fleet is caught in some kind of warp fuckery.

So they only encounter Primaris from other chapters, and that I think is a rare occurance given the relative rarity of SMs in the scale of 40k. Leave it at small scale skirmishes against some sort of isolated strike force from another chapter.

>> No.71187300

That's only in the best possible scenario. It's 2d6 shots per model but the flamer is only S4 AP0. It costs 2CP for flamecraft for max hits, and another CP for the counts as stationary strat as long as they didn't advance. Then the doctrine doesn't kick in until the 2nd turn, which is alright as they probably won't reach combat until the 3rd. So unless your opponent is an actual dumbass and leaves a squad right next to the aggressors it costs 3CP on turn 2 or 3 to actual get the most out of them. Sure it's painful, but not an immediate threat like ultra or IF aggressors are.

People I know are going to be doing a Vigilus campaign and I have some interest in it but very little. There's just something about 8th edition and everything that I just don't like. I used to play 3rd edition all the time (and the Specialist Games around it and the like) and had an enjoyable time. Now, I can barely bring myself to put together or paint stuff so I can play them. I've yet to buy any Primaris and I don't even think "PRIMARIS? BAD!" or anything. I just don't find them interesting. I can't really explain why because I don't know.

I took part in Armageddon and the 13th Black Crusade (and the Warhammer Fantasy campaigns). I don't understand why I don't want to play that much anymore. Or do anything too much with the hobby despite having interest in it. It's paradoxical.

They are very religiously fanatical. According to them the Emperor himself personally visited their homeworld and gave them their core task. and it happened in like M36. I'm trying to ride that old school line of lore that clearly can't be literally true given the facts that we the players know, but the marines in-universe believe it so the truth doesn't even matter at that point.

Yeah, they are very rigid on some points of their beliefs. It keeps them on task, but can be detrimental. Some real Javert logic.

My preferred interpretation is that they have been sitting, standing watch, for 10k years over their master's throne. Each one dates back to the unification wars, predating even the great crusade.

If they had any presence on the table at all it should be as a single 250~ point HQ that can be souped into other imperium armies, an absolute melee monster chad machine that represents a lone custodes sent to take care of something that could pose a threat to terra.

>> No.71187507

>> No.71187541

They've always been able to recruit. It just takes who knows how many years to create a single Custodian.
They aren't flavors of marines. Custodians are hand-crafted by biomantic processes from infants, and each one is a unique work of art. Those made by the Emperor's direct hand are blessed with much better work than those made in the modern day. Watchers of the Throne and their Codices are, as far as I know, the only definitive resources about the Custodians.

I just think it would offer more room for depth now that initiative is gone. There's more to think about for when you're going to declare a charge than just overwatch, and it forces melee armies to consider tactics other than just CHARGE EVERYTHING. Like if You're playing Blood Angels, even with your melee bonuses you might hesitate to charge your tacs into a squad of incubi, since you'd be hitting on 5s, so you'd be better served with shooting and overwatch. On the other hand a Space Wolf player might still choose to fight in melee since he'd have the +1 to hit bonus evening things out.

You can just buy the Death Guard half online cheaply instead of having to get the primaris half that wouldn't fit the aesthetic you would want for a Slaanesh army. But do you want to run Slaanesh/Nurgle Daemons, Slaanesh/Nurgle aligned chaos marines, or DG? They can all ally with each other, but you really want to just pick one and focus on it for now. Grab the codices from the mega in the OP, look through them, you will want the Daemons, Death Guard, and Chaos Space Marine books. Don't buy the paint set, it's not a good deal, just grab some cheap brushes from a craft store and grab the colors you want to paint your minis in.

I'd love an OG Mongol Ghaz without his powersuit, do love the design.

I really want to do a Valkyrie detachment, what would be the best way to kit them out? Punisher cannons or Lascannon spam?

If your army can’t be played in 2nd Edition it’s not real.

Vendetta/Vultures are best, regular Valks blow to bring firepower.

If you're looking for best value per point, get Know No Fear instead and split the Primaris half of it with someone. That'll get you the best value per buck.
Otherwise start with easy to build plague marines / pox walkers, get a troop box once you're done with them (CSM for Slaanesh, Plague Marines for Nurgle), continue with half of Dark Imperium / KNF if you're still going.
Start yourself off on painting your shit before you buy more early.

The head graft is a pretty wild one

Hah. I like this. I've been putting together a Rogue Trader army for a fun time with a friend but keep switching which army I want to do. Also, serious question, how compatible are 1st edition and 2nd edition? I've played 2nd but never 1st and 2nd has more going for it.
