I'm probably just being autistic, but slight variances in how each squad is painted is normal for an army that wasn't done all at once, right?
By that I mean, you can tell that you improved between squads and some newer squads have different techniques used on them.

Ok, thanks guys.

Guys I have a question picked up admech now as my first units to get into 40k and been looking through the codex. So the book gives me a bunch of preset colour schemes of their different armies but not all of them have their own extra rules like voss primus for example.

Is mixing colors with metallic paint like leadbelcher a good idea? Reason I ask is because I want to make a darker lead belcher but what would I even mix into it? Black?

Probably better just using a wash or a glaze. If you mix non-metallic with metallic then the shiny shit in the metallic paint doesn't show up properly.

Welcoming critique for my 2k DE list, made for maelstrom games

Brigade - Kabal of the Dark Heart

Archon w/ venom blade
Archon w/ venom blade

5 x 5 kabalite warriors
1 x 8 kabalite warriors

4 x raider w/ disintegrator

3 x ravager w/ disintegrator

3 x 10 scourge w/ 4 heat lances + 1 blast pistol

1 x 9 incubi

2 x 9 mandrakes

Just a casual list really. Mandrakes and Scourges obviously start in deep strike along with 2 raiders full of kabalites with screaming jets. Archons ride with the other kabalites, incubi get a boat to themselves, and 1 group of kabalites runs around like povo cunts because they couldn't afford their raider repayments and I really want those CP. Been having fun with the list. Drazhar feels a bit wasted with only one squad of incubi but he always turns out to be kind of a beast just on his own and I like his model.

So was Mk IV Space Marine armor super popular before Primaris and that's why GW based the Primaris design on it so heavily including modeling the repulsor pilot with the Mk IV techmarine helmet or did GW just throw darts at a wall and land on Mk IV for inspiration vis a vis rng?

Hopefully you can cause enough damage to the enemy but I don't think you'll have enough staying power, which is a big reason why coverns work so well as area denial units and speed bumps.

I know people liked it, but I always got the impression that Mk3 or Beakies were the most popular "alternate" flavours.

>> No.72469858

Only thing MkIV on them is the helmet mask. They don't have the extended breastplate to cover the abdomen, the external torso cabling, the thin trim on the pauldrons, the squared off knee pads, the extended vambraces nor the segmented backpack design.

MkIV was popular when it was rare, mainly through the FW Red Scorpions line. Before that I knew a lot of people who wanted pure MkVI army and MkVI helmets and studded pads were hot commodity.

Would the way the Darkness is handled work better than Chaos? You never fight the Darkness directly, only through their minions. You never have anything alike Chaos Daemons, the closest thing being high ranking Hive, Xol or Darkness-possessed Vex.

From what I understand, there are more special forces guns. From what I've seen, the soldiers only carry the one drum in the gun and the rest are regular magazines.

This isn't even really a "do whatever you think looks best" situation, since if someone doesn't take kindly to it, that's a unit and effort that's just waste.

So I am researching T'au lore. The region whose acquisition by the T'au sparked the Damocles Crusade was in a rough state. The systems and worlds in the region were neglected and lacking in resources. Imperial support and overwatch to these systems were so minimal that they slided slowly away from the Pax Imperalis. Civil war and mistrust was the norm as the systems were at each other throats.

The T'au came and diplomatically assimilated these worlds by offering them support and protection. They rebuilt the worlds infrastructures and through their advanced technology filled the desperate needs the populace.

So can it be said that the T'au did wrong by taking these worlds under their wings when the Imperium didn't care for them and didn't notice they declared their breakaway until a fluke alarmed them?

Also it's noticed that the T'au have mastery over the anti-gravitic arts which the Imperium no longer understands. How did the Imperium lose anti-grav?!

Just look at the mess that is Afrika. Sure, short term giving support and offering supplies might look like help.
But in the long run it means that local economies are completely ruined, initiatives for improvement by the population itself left without support, larger amounts of infants surviving leading to even larger episodes of famine.
Which is exactly the kind of support Tau would want to offer, they benefit greatly from keeping assimilated races highly dependent on the Tau. Taken into consideration that other races are second-class citizens to the Tau at best, it can be seen as a more disingenuous form of enslavement.

China on the other hand has no strings, they build roads, railways and ports.

I haven't, but I don't even think that would save it. The sculptor, in making the legs longer and less thick, also made the body shorter. That's why the belly guns are pushed up so far and look more like nipple cannons. That and the way the sarcophagus is pushed out like a beer belly. The whole thing just needs a redesign.

Iron Hands are a great choice since they're top tier in the current meta but also outside of it have a playstyle that's generally more forgiving for mistakes than other chapters
Other armies that are noob friendly but less relevant in the current meta are Death Guard and Custodes
Knights probably work as well since with less models you only have to decide what enemy to shoot with what gun and you won't have to worry too much about navigating cover since you're a big fat knight anyway, that being said you will probably lose a lot if your opponent knows you play a knights army since it's easy to counter-build lists
