>Personally I prefer AoS (I also play 40k). Because it has a better combination of melee, CC and a mix both (in 40k I got the feeling that melee units are often underwhelming and most armies are centered around shooting) but the biggest selling point for me at least is the unit variaty. Every army has its unique units (Stormcast and fireslayer are the ones with the least variaty) meanwhile in 40k (the space marine factions in particular) are just the same armor with different weapons (There are exceptions) but what I like about AoS is I can play Khorne and every unit has a completly different asthetic, the same goes for most factions and it's not just a power armor with different colors (I know that in 40k that is also the case with most Xenos factions but the problem is that the most played ones are Space Marines)

Also, before I lose your attention with a long-winded effortpost and a barrage of references 40k deepcut memes: I dig the plants, but there’s a weird puritianical streak in all the people posting to remove “thots”, and it kinda sucks that weirdly conservitive attitudes about women is part of what people are first seeing when they see 40k.

I’m not going to go through the full history of the game but suffice to say that it looked a little different than it does now. Space Marines were just the brutal enforcers of the Imperium’s will, looking a lot more like an evil version of the Terran Marines from starcraft in some ways; The Rainbow Warriors were a first founding chapter, and the Ultra-Marines weren’t, but had a half-eldar member. This was a setting still in open beta that took a little while to be solidified into the setting we know. However, in this early version some things were already here. The Imperium was the “most brutal regime imagninable”, and enforced its will with plasteel boots. They weren’t really “good guys”. Rick Priestley has been on the record numerous times about this, but he shouldn’t need to be. He created an ur-fascist bureaucratic theocracy using fascist symbology (the Imperial Eagle) that was explicitly from the first paragraph of the first book published “the most brutal regeime imaginable”, and tried to impose it’s xenophobic (but less xenophobic than current 40k) will on the galaxy. That part has never gone away.


>> No.72770098


Lots of guardsmen, couple of baneblade variants, lots of titans, things like that.

Space marines would be a unit in imperial armies, not their own army.

(but that alone wouldn't work in a game would it, the marine fanwankers would cry for a marine-only army.)

40k evolved some, the space marines became a weird blend of knight-monk-angels and brutal enforcers of the Imperiums will. Novels were written. Some were weird, some were alright. If you’re looking to read some 40k, the Eisenhorn Trilogy is a great place to start. It contextualises elements as it introduces them, and it’s the only 40k books I’d recommend to anyone who wasn’t interested in 40k. Chaos was added. The Inquisition’s biggest enemy was still itself though, the shadow-war it fought between it’s shattered factions only fueled by the existence of the theological position outside the imperium. Ultra-marines lost their hyphen, becoming the Ultramarines. Orks became mushroom men and people misread a section of lore and convinced everyone that their guns worked by magic. Abbaddon did a 13th black crusade (the first time), Eldrad died. Necrons, Tau, Dark Eldar were added. Genestealers became a sort of Tyranid. The Horus Heresy was updated from Rick Priestley’s copy of Paradise Lost with the 40k logo taped to the front and “IN SPAAAACE!!!” added at the end to a series of articles discussing a mythic past from an in universe perspective that couldn’t disentangle myth from history. Later they retconned Abbaddon’s first 13th black crusade, added back dozens of weird bits that had been forgotten from the early lore, started the Horus Heresy book series, digging into the creation myth of 40k, ignoring the themes of 40k and making the myths all true to flesh out a prequel setting (30k) and 54 books later (you hacks!) they still haven’t wrapped up, but they got their 30k into my 40k and I don’t like it. (But more on this later.) They also became more corporate, put the marketing department in charge of more things, and gave Rick Priesley the boot.

shield vets look ok, not too big on carrying full on skeleton relics into combat and using them as shields, but the rest of the model is tolerable. what's with gw and making 3 model units recently? these vets, inceptors, the zakus, eliminators, agressors, all of them, it feels like if the unit isn't a bog standard line unit of whatever designation, they suffer so many casualties that the chapter physically can't deploy them in standard 5 or 10 man squads or something
the fact that is took this long to get intercessors with swords and pistols is silly, but don't really care about them regardless
veteran ancient looks cool. robes and smaller, really ornate standard is a lot better than both the basic primaris ancient and the standard ancient.
Glad to see melta is going to be good next edition, it's been a while since they've been taken.
Chappy looks cool. a lot better than a literal Reaper knockoff, so just about anything is a direct upgrade
I like the bikes. they look like an actual improvement over normal marine bikes, heavier and everything but without some of the other markers of primaris style. Actual bolters too, not stubbers thank god. that reminds me, I still need to get a bunch of standard bikers and attack bikes for reasons

all in all, I don't hate most of them. I'd wait to buy them until we see what their stats are, but this is a box set/unit set that I'd actually buy some of

Still it remained at its core a pastiche of satires, that lacked a single coherent thesis, but espoused many ideas in a sporadic mess. “Fascism Bad”, “Racism Bad”, “Religious traditionalism will lead us into a quagmire from which we can only regress and lose the hard-won progress of knowledge and science.”, and “Bureaucracy Bad”. It never really explored these ideas in depth, but it was a wargame setting first and foremost, an excuse for your toy soldiers to fight their toy soldiers. Suffice to say that the setting had these themes, even if they weren’t deeply explored.

>GW & Context
You might say that the above themes were incidental, or inherited from Dune, 2000AD and the other settings that poured into the pastiche that was 40k. However, Games Workshop has a history of being political like this, in their older game, Warhammer Fantasy Battles (the precursor setting to Age of Sigmar). There’s a lot to be said about this, but the best example is the Battle of Dungal Hill in the classic McDeath campaign. Een McWrecker and Arka Zargul have clear real world analogues in the British Coal-mine Union Strikes under Thatcher. This was contemporary politics, and Games Workshop unapologetically took the side of the Unions, being the filthy leftists they were. “I ho I ho go slow.” A close second place goes to Mag-gies Death Banner, aka “The Banner of Doom”, which in place of the traditional symbol of evil has Thatcher’s face. (Note: There’s a popular myth that Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka’s name was based on Thatcher, this seems not to be the case, but Andy “Overfiend” Chambers sure didn’t express any love for her when denying it.

Going back further, the very old pictures of the GW staff have included a few punks and at least one picture I can’t track down anymore of one with a SHARP (SkinHeads Against Racial Prejudice) badge prominently displayed. (If anyone can find that old photo, I’d be very grateful.) 40k has always been adjacent to the alternative scenes in England, at one time having its own music label, signing up bands such as D-Rok and Bolt Thrower (a band known for their music third, getting into fights with neonazis second, and being that band that GW signed up that time first) and these alternative scenes have always eschewed the political centre, veering far right (skinheads, nazi punks (can fuck off), and neonazi metal) or far left (SHARPS, real punks, bands like Rage Against the Machine and System of a Down). Suffice to say that GW has a history of being leftist.

>The Scouring of Golgotha, 769.M41
>A sizeable forces of heretics attacks the fortress world of Golgotha with the aim to pillage its abundant reserves of weapons war machines. Led by a joint force of several Chaos Space Marine warbands, the heretics penetrate the worlds initial defences and make planetfall, engaging the local PDF in planet-wide street war. To counter the threat, the 4th,5th and 7th Companies of the Tempest Eagles reach the planet to provide aid. What was initially planned as a lightning strike upon the heretics gets immediately slowed to a crawl, and the Space Marines become embroiled in the viscious fighting around the world's fortress-capital. Knowing that war of attrition was unwinnable, the leading Chaos Lord, Herak the Blooded, mounts an assault to the planet's main weapon deposits, in the hope to recover a good deal ofloot before having to retreat back in the Maelstrom. The assault is intercepted by elements of the 5th Company and the PDF, led by Captain Trantio Cloudrunner. In the subsequent fight, Captain Trantio manages to force Herak in personal combat, but is decapitated by the Chaos Lord's cursed blade. Records tell of how the Captain's headless body still flailed around even after his death, catching the chaos lord by surprise and managing to avenge his own demise by crushing herak's skull with a lucky hit of his power fist. Timed pick captures of the event record how the captain's body kept staggering about, wailing on everything that came close to him, for about two to three minutes, before collapsing. With the Chaos Lord's death, the heretics lose heart and quickly withdraw from Golgotha, but both the PDF and the Tempest Eagles have suffered heavy losses to repel them.

Apparently, their spacecraft suffered a malfunction and crashlanded in an unprotected part of the planet, where the inquisitorial group was eventually torn apart by the planet's local predators.

I'll explain it to you, anon. Like how i've experienced it.

You start off, everything's wonderous.
Lore is new, you're learning it, everything seems badass.

You choose your army and you start off with the basics, you have fun painting, building, reading lore and scouring the rulebooks/codexes again and again to get that sweet fluff.

You get a larger force, and you look at your older stuff and it doesn't look as good as your new stuff so you maybe even re-buy some older models, and re-do them. Happy with the updated, flashy looks.

You start to get jaded at the passage of time, it only felt like yesterday you bought the x edition and x edition codex, and here you are buying the next one.

And then, of course, the eventual if you hang around long enough. ...New models. You worked hard on your range, but the new stuff just looks better, (primaris not included, in my case.) You just want to keep your guys, but the new stuff is taking the spotlight. You begrudingly buy some new minis, but now your army looks out of place.

There's a sinking feeling in your stomach, you don't want to replace your force, but you don't like the updated minis. So you hold off.

Time goes by, editions pass, and remakes and new minis pour out, you can't catch up, you can't ever keep pace, and before you know it you've got £1000's worth down the drain and your display cabinet/shelf/case is filled with minis you're not sure why you still have, as everything has changed.

Everything you bought which was once good lookswise and ruleswise has been replaced with either models which look better, or new models released with better rules, and GW fucking over the rules of your previous stuff just so they can force sales for people to buy the new stuff.

It's a rabbit hole, do you want to go down it?

Again, those shitty green rods, they are updating every kit that had them. Also they are taking the chance to give them more weapon options, which is nice. They probably were gonna give necrons a new wave of models and took the chance to update those, which in turn means they don't have to make any more of those green rods.

I'm liking all this. The tripod design for Necrons really helps set them apart and finally give them a unique aesthetic they badly needed. Also I like all these little weird nonhuman shaped canoptek minion creatures they've got going on, like drones for Tau but bigger and with more presence. Stuff like this really adds character and texture to units. Always thought more armies should get stuff like that - servo skulls and weird servitors and automaton things for AdMech, more servitors and chapter serfs and stuff like the watchers in the dark for Marines, etc.

They're still there, but I agree primaris/manlets should be able to interchange and use all vehicles.

Because all the new primaris vehicles are also covered in heavy stubbers, instead of bolter weapons like storm bolters or heavy bolters.
This proves that Primarines use none of the marinelet bolter weapons. Meaning no heavy bolters.

>No, we have hellblasters and those new dudes for a reason.
Hellblasters just carry wierd plasma guns. I want a proper unit with the classic heavy weapons. The new dudes just have wierd combi meltas and wear gravis armour, which looks like shit.
>No, we have agressors for a reason
They aren't terminators and look like shit.

>Build a marine army entirely secondhand because they’ve been in every set every edition
>Do it again because of Primarus forced meme also in every boxed set. Who buys these new?
>Actually own rhinos
>Own more than one army and don’t have autistic faction fanaticism
>Bitch that Tau have become totally flanderized from their initial Combined Arms Alien Federation into big robots go pew pew and drones. Thanks 6th.
>remember the 3.5 Chaos boogeyman by experience instead of reputation. Shit wasn’t that bad, git gud.
