So it generated a meme where Fabolous bile, whose weapon in 7th edition was Instant Death, (which meant that it had basically infinite damage in 8th terms) succesfully wounded a Titan with a 6 to wound, oneshotting it and causing the rest of the Titans to run away because of battleshock.

Played a couple Maelstrom games against Ultramarines yesterday, once with my AdMech, then another with Orks. AM had an absurdly effective T1 shooting, completely crippled his army so not much to report on there.

Ork game was better matched, had first turn again nearly but for him seizing. It was my first time trying out Saga of the Beast stuff, I was running two Gunwagons to see how the turret kustom jobs would do (we agreed to rule the periscope issue in favor of being able to fire twice).

He was definitely intimidated by the ZagZap wagon and spent most of his T1 antitank on trying to kill it, but it survived with 6 wounds and one of my big meks brought it back into its top bracket. It did ok in shooting, didn't manage to trigger the MW on either shot but still took 6 wounds off an Impulsor the normal way. Unfortunately that's about all it managed, he did polish it off on his T2.

Da Boomer gunwagon definitely accomplished more. In my vehicle centric army I don't have a lot of great targets for More Dakka, but this was a good one - it pretty handily cleaned out a group of 6 hellblasters with one volley, and probably would have done for a significant chunk of a second group of 6 had he not popped transhuman physiology after seeing what it did to the first squad.

I also tried out the gyro whirligig on a Dragsta. It's definitely an autotake even if you're just bringing one of them, the flexibility of just having that thing jump to wherever you want it every turn is too good, and actually got me a Domination objective - without that I would have lost that game as he had gotten an easy combo of "kill X+ units" objectives on his first turn that, while he didn't score them then thanks to thorough KFF coverage, still left him with 9 points at the end of his second turn.

Yes, but if you don't count the one that's sitting on top of the circled rifle, it's 9. He made the collage for the cover of the box with 9, then flattened the layers for each ranger and closed off the file (meaning he couldn't revert it). Then he realized he fucked up and went back to fix it but the 10th ranger would overlap anything he put it over so he was fucked unless he started over (which he should have because christ it doesn't take very long to arrange a bunch of transparent images over a white background).

>Necrodermis is a material of unknown origin and chemical or molecular structure that possesses the extraordinary ability to regenerate almost all damage instantaneously, "flowing" back together as if it were a liquid while closing bullet holes, mending gashes and tears, or even reattaching severed pieces with little delay. The material is also adaptive in some unknown fashion and can learn to repair itself given enough time from nearly any form of damage, even a blast powerful enough to reduce it to its constituent molecules or atoms. In addition to the bodies of the C'tan and the Necrons themselves, all Necron vehicles and starships are made from Necrodermis, including Monoliths and Gauss Pylons

I get that, but you don't do that by trashing the army and replacing it with something that vaguely looks like it.

I'm completely new to 40k. Got myself one of the starters that got around 500pts worth of primaris(es?) and more recently bought the kit of 5 Deathwatch vets, because I like their theme and saw that they're worth 100+ points, so figured I'll add them to my primaris for the 600pts min. my FLGS plays at.

Anon they did the same when they hand sculpted marines. They had molds for tons of pieces so they didn't have to model the exact same helmet/pauldron/boltgun/backpack a million times.

The thing is, both camps of people are very large. I for one love battle damage. But don't like doing it myself because its hard to know what will show properly like scars and such. I don't particularly prefer clean. It just seems odd having "clean" models on a battlefield anyway.

So for years and years GW catered to people that wanted "clean" models. So now let us have some dirty models. Its fine. Besides, necron warriors came out battle damaged anyway because their old sprue is trash.

Ork players are used to Orkz being shit for long periods of time as long as they are ridiculously swingy so they either roll shit and get blasted into oblivion or they roll good and smash the opposition.

It would be good to have an edition where Orkz have several good options in the same edition. So we don't have it where there is one good Ork army like the Nob Biker period to shine, etc.

Horde armies need a definite boost. They are already expensive unless you go with older ebay boyz, take forever to paint, slow down the game because they have to move every turn but moving 90+ boyz sucks, etc.

This isn't even good enough anyway.
How does a once per game (maybe twice with Strat) bonus make Litany of the Electromancer usable? Or make Benediction of the Omnissiah not totally redundant with a Dominus around?

I'm not saying don't do what you're talking about; that would be cool too. But GW needs to actually overhaul some of the existing Canticles into useful things. Hell, they already half did that in Kill Team, by making Litany of the Electromancer occur in the Fight phase, and by making Shroudpsalm give you additional protection if already in Cover.
But those corrections still have never made it to the base game, and I doubt they actually will.

He's talking about how inconsistent it is for AdMech to use regular old stubbers for their own war machines. They're supposed to be using ancient tech, and it's supposed to look like 20th century tech to convey how backwards and old it is, but no matter how you look at it a stubber is just a stubber. It's not a laser stubber, or a plasma stubber, it's just a stubber. It's like seeing them use shovels. It just doesn't fit.

The reason it's there is to drive home the fact that this is based off the blueprints of an amphibious assault boat that they found and decided to turn into this... Which still doesn't explain why they wouldn't change out the stubber guns if stubbers are still simple enough to be basic bitch technology even in the dark ages of the 41st millenium.
