How do you guys decide how to assemble your models?

Do you build based on what you think looks cool or look at rules first and build based on that.

Always feel stifled by this overwhelming amount of choice especially in a game where weapon rules change with editions.

I also don't like the idea of lugging sriund 20 extra arms for my models with magnets.

I want to create a chapter a Space Marine (yes, I am a faggot) specialized in the supply chain, militia formation, public aid, and key point defence.
To draw a parallel, I would like them to perform the same tasks as the current special forces: "the direct approach is characterized by technologically enabled small-unit precision lethality, focused intelligence, and inter-agency cooperation integrated on a digitally-networked battlefield", whereas the "indirect approach includes empowering host nation forces, providing appropriate assistance to humanitarian agencies, and engaging key populations."

It occurs in almost every book that has primaris in it

Marines definitely notice the difference, even a Custodes does when he has to fight a primaris captain. But it’s not nearly as big of a difference as it is on the tabletop. The biggest upgrade is easily the Furnace which lets them go berserk when they’re about to die.
That being said they still die like marines, the death guard kill lots of them in Dark Imperium/Plague Wars. Even a SoB gets one with a melta.

A random mix of WYSIWYG based on how I plan to run them, what looks cool, and what I have. I find it more important that something looks like it can do its intended role and stands out from things that don't more than the actual rules. For instance, my khorne berzerkers wield a mix of chainaxes, chainswords, pistols and possessed marine murder hands, and I run all of them as chainaxe+chainsword. I deem that an acceptable break from WYSIWYG because they look sick and nobody is going to be surprised that the walking pile of close combat weapons do close combat shit, and I tell my opponent how I will them before hand anyway, and I run all of them the same, so there's nothing to be confused about.

Literal pseudo-science.

Also Hitler rarely wrote things down himself, even Mein Kampf and its sequel were ghost written.

>Describe in one sentence what do you think of this revelation.
I think GW did not understand that fill all the gry area of the Emperor history was not a good idea.

Yes, it explains everything: what is a perpetual, the creation of the Primarch, their disappearance in the warp, etc.

BUT only that could not make good lore.
Is it because is a woman? Replace her with a man and it would be as bad as before
Is it because of the perpetuals? Replace them with powerful psychics and the problem will remain.

The lore WAS ALREADY COMPLETE, and GW misses this point.

Not the anon you're replying to, but basically: you can get smooth thin even coats with the thing.
I also use mine for priming and clear coating since you can airbrush in shitty weather without it impacting the paint.
As for what it's like to use, I tell people it's a bit like painting with a torch, there's a strong centre point that radiates out. Makes it good for gradients, but a whole bunch of airbrushers think it's "Highlighting: The Tool" and overdo it.

Outsider here asking what has been the community’s general level of assimilation of online/digital play for the tabletop game particularly in light of current events. I am well aware of DoW, I mean the actual table top rules and modes of play like one may find on Tabletop Simulator or possibly other VR/AR setups. I have always had the itch to try but the “break out the ruler for each model movement” like crap is a major turn off, but would be more open to it if a digital platform handled for that so strategy can be the main focus.

The main thing is that they're relatively squishy, don't think of them as a true "tank", they're a rhino with 4 lascans for 175 points. That's expensive. For odd 120 points you get a helbrute with 2 lascans that don't degrade and a missile launcher, and hellbrute has some ways to shoot twice.

Think about what you want from them, as a personal preference I like to run them naked, 131 points pred autocannon with havoc can be a decent support, but it won't anti- tank really, the AP is just too low. Autocannons also work better with killshot, if you want to take down a 'Nid monster or a daemon or something.

Lascannon pred w/o sponson is cheap but it won't do much, and 175 for 4x lascannon platform that degrades (and it WILL degrade cause preds are anti-tank magnets) is wayyy too fucking expensive for me.

Just get oblits and deepstrike & buff them / havocs and run them from behind terrain when you want to shoot.

Thank for replies.

The sticking point for me currently was nobs, meganobs, killa kans and deffdreds. Trying to decide what weapon options to go with. Maybe magnetising weapons on kans and deff dreads is an option but magnetising infantry seems tedious.

I have a force of salamanders too. I say force but it is still unbuilt sitting in boxes because I could never source enough meltaguns or any multimeltas years ago. Seems now the only option for MM is dev squads however now that flamers are better ill probably just build tac squads with flamer/missile (Older sets).
