It depends on a lot of factors. Income level is the most important, 11% for 100k is a lot different than 11% of 35k since you'd (hopefully) not be taking away from your other needs with the higher salary. Marital status and number of kids, where they live, retirement savings, etc.

Honestly once you've basecoated khorne red, leadbelcher, and gold the models like 2/3rds done.

the problem a lot of times is that by doing only color+wash is that it risks looking very flat, specially on a marine.

you could mix khorne red + flesh tearers red to create a brighter layer in the upmost parts. if that is too hard, you can always add some scratch marks or a decal in the shoulder pad. these small details can help draw the eye away from the flat surfaces and create some depth to the figure.

>I mean, I don't mind the idea of more narratively driven play, but how do you match up armies well?

They explained it a bit. Armies that aren't as well matched get bonuses (blessings, more CP) to help them get to a more level playing field. You also don't get completely fucked if you get bodied in a game and all of your units get battle scarred you can use your xp in later games to remove the debuffs. I was afraid that penalties for dying units/losing games would be much worse and would possibly make people think they'd need to restart their campaign if they died (like D&D where character death is permanent in your campaign), but this seems to not be too drastic.

In Necromunda when there's a power disparity between one gang that got fucked up and one gang that's rollin hard there's mechanics in place like pseudo-stratagems or model limitations (such as only 5-6 models allowed in this match) to even the playing field for the weaker army. They also get underdog bonuses as well if they beat a stronger force.

He's also one of those cocksuckers that will try to get you to forget steps, like you'll be doing movement and he'll go "ok which ones are shooting first?" and if you answer he'll say that you skipped the psychic phase and will throw a tantrum if you try to go back.

Even though we play at an lgs that has "fun fridays" where you aren't supposed to bring comp lists he still brings his tau comp list then gets mad when he's told he can't play it. He's tried to get crisis suit commander with crisis and shield drone blobs declared "fluffy" and can't get his head around the concept that switching one comp list for another isn't the point of a fun list. He isn't matched with new players anymore since he delights in "teaching them what 40k is really about", which means just stomping them by turn 2.

it's different due to unmodified 1s always failing on hits. so say you had a BS of 4+, but then had an ability/strat that improved it by +2, that means a roll of 2 will pass. However, if you have a BS of 3+ and have an ability that is +2 to hit, a roll of 1 will still fail despite meeting the BS as an roll of 1 will always fail regardless of modifiers.

If you actually love 40k and/or your chosen army you'll probably put in the effort to paint it up nicely, you're also probably a friendly guy who understands and enjoys the various aspects of the hobby (Fluff, painting, modeling, gaming, etc) and doesn't stress too much over purely winning, a fun game with cool moments on both sides is more important

But a typical greytide fag just wants to win with the latest powercreep, so have no connection to the army or minis, just see real life opponents as people to try and crush, probably barely care about the fluff/visuals so why bother putting effort in? they're also likely a huge autismo so no wonder these guys are difficult to socalize with and leave bad tastes

Going up to max squad 20 is taken from HH and now meant to represent how some of the traitor legions still wage war and are organized in the same style as during the great crusade. Hopefully cult marines go to W2, but that's unlikely since plague marines and DG termis would be amazingly tanky. GW has been pushing vanilla chaos marines as more melee oriented with DttFE, but they still aren't too great at it and the entire codex struggles with getting the actual mook marines into combat quickly outside of using AL or a drill and even then berserkers are way better at it. With the releases we've been getting since 6th, GW is pushing more daemon fusions with marines and machines

Ferrus is out of place in that lineup, he only has brute strength and no combat chops unlike the other three. Curze wank is horrible I agree, it becomes even more obvious when people try to Corax wank.

That's Captain Steele, a retired guardsman who now serves in an Orlock gang on Necromunda.

He's an utter imbecile who somehow managed to survive every suicide mission intended to do away with him due to insane forrest gump luck. Eventually the guard just gave up trying to get him killed and set him down on the nearest hive world, where he was quickly and erroneously recruited by gangers who only saw a highly decorated Guard veteran.
When I play him, I run him at -1 Intelligence and I make an Int check every time I fire his plasma to see if he remembers which setting the gun was on last.

by people do you mean BL? Wolfsbane does a fairly good job of explaining it as Curze being dangerous because he's a fucking maniac who might do anything and is unpredictable, and Corax would stack the fight in his favour before it even begins. Situational is the golden word here.

Part of me wants to, but I already have greater possessed to get stuck in, so these guys will probably be a bolter blob to grab an objective and throw dakka.

Curze beats Lion, and Lion could beat Sangy so it's not unjustified. There is no physical reason that he couldn't, and Horus before getting juiced is nothing special. It's fine so long as they acknowledge Curze is extremely vulnerable, probably more than most Primarchs he's a glass cannon, if he overwhelms his opponent with recklessness he can win but thats not gonna work twice on anyone with their head screwed on, and not even once on someone expecting it.

they'll be better for you in 9th since the new CP system is lifting troop tax. Basically with orks you want to go either full mechanized or all ork boyz hordes. The best way to play is to just get all the models you like the look of and make a list out of that.

if it's a singular unit that's taken with the rest of the army, with little actual focus on the unit itself as an anchor unit, then its fine.

little column a, little column b.
40k more or less runs on rule of cool for the most part, so since having your commander parked 20 feet behind the front lines without his helmet, spotlights shining on him and him practically just chilling with his dick out looks cool in the artwork, that's how it goes.
chaos commanders, particularly csm, will often seek out the strongest thing on the battlefield (that they can kill with little practical danger to themselves) in order to defeat them and gain renown and bragging points to get better rewards from the people above them and the gods themselves, so being able to claim that they killed the enemy leader in single combat with their bare hands would be a nice notch on their belt
