I unironically like Erebus and think he's a fun character because of how awful and evil he is. Whenever I see retards posting his like "hurr fuck Erebus" I cringe. He's the kind of evil asshole the setting needs, especially with the increasing number of faggots coming in.

I wonder if the age strawpoll from last thread reflects the wider 40k community. If it does, I also wonder how much sense It makes for GW to try and appeal to children. I personally got into 40k when I was a kid, but I got into it because it didn't look like it's supposed to appeal to kids. In specific I'm talking about the cartoony art style for some books like warhammer adventures, or the slight push towards making the imperium be the good guys.
>It's still grim derp and the no one is still the good guy
Yes, yes, I'm not saying 40k is now carebears in space all of a sudden. But there is a selection of people who see this as adults playing an effectively children's hobby, and therefore the marketing towards kids making sense. And I wonder just how true that is.

Question: I've not played anythign 40k but kill team since like 2004 and 9th has my AoS playing friend interested.
I play AoS so thus far having an army has gone like this
>Buy Tome
>FAQ's come out
>Print them off and keep them in the back of tome for game night to keep shit up to date
>Tome is replaced with new edition or something like Wrath of the Everchosen comes out which adds new playstyles/buffs for different lists to said army but are entirely optional and you still need the original tome and faqs even if you want to run something like Nurgles Drowned Men pirate list.

So i have Codex Admech and a fair few models and can easily print off the FAQ stuff, but does the psychic awakening books act as a soft update that includes the FAQ's or just new units? and what about chapter approved?

The big difference of course being AoS basically gives 90% of shit away for free online so you can just print off things like rules adjustments and points changes since each model on the GW store has it as a pdf file and as far as i know thats not happening yet with 40k.

So do you basically take the admech book+errata and the engine war book to have all the rules for Admech now?

Agreed, the only thing I really liked about 7th was all the things you could buy for fortifications, from barb wire to escape hatches so you could deploy the occupants forward. I do think these things might return because from all we've heard terrain will play a major role and your own army's terrain might also play a bigger role than it does now.

For the same reason 90% of releases are primaris. Paypigs are locked in for years. AoS was new and dropping £50 on start collecting that gives you half an army with the battletomes only good for bonuses and artefacts for competitive play is a much easier investment in something new.

sponge dabbed with rhinox hide. Only a small amount, practically drybrushing levels of paint on the sponge and then 2/3 presses in select places on the shields. Then I add any 'scarring' by hand with a brush, if there's spots the sponge didn't reach or if I want something different like the claw marks. Then lower-ridge highlight the chipping with calgar blue.

I already have two of the older SC kits for Admech. For someone who already has those the new kit is good, but for a new collector I think the old kit is better. Most of us who already have multiple old SC kits enough Tech Priest Dominus' that they're probably mainly used for kitbashing and bits. For people new to collecting Admech I think the new SC kit is a step down from the old one.

Another factor is that apparently 9th edition is going to do away with CP being tied to detachments, so how useful is having a bunch of Enginseer's going to be? Mainly they were just used as a cheap HQ to spam battalions.

Crabtank vs Hoverboat. I like the Dunecrawler, I guess Mathhammer says the Disintegrator does more damage but I think people underestimate how hard it can be to take out a Dunecrawler comparatively. People also seem to underestimate the Icarus array which has put in serious work for me. Plus I think the crab tank looks cooler, but that's just me.

Has anyone in this general read the bible? Not attended a sermon or read few passages, but sat down and read the whole thing? Also which version have you read? I just got some random white leather-back one from walmart and it really opened my eyes about 40k and the world around it. I am, more than ever, now in wonder why The Emperor rejected Lorgar's truth considering all Lorgar did was preach His word. I suppose it's 40k though, to have the fall from hubris of man, but it does make me sad that only people who will meat salvation in afterlife, in His heaven, are word bearers and their cultists.
Guess what I am really trying to say was that the actions in Calth were those of self-defense, not hostile invasion that 40k writers often portray it as.

- Get the Butcher's Nails installed instead of resisting or killing himself or the ones operating on him
- Serve as a gladiator for his overlords for several years instead of killing them or killing himself
- Lead a suicidal last stand
- Fail to see his suicidal last stand through to the end
- Blame the Emperor for all his own faults
- Killed a Custodes on the ship
- Stopped attacking when the Emperor told the Custodes to stand down instead of just keep killing all the Custodes
- Didn't attack or fight against the Emperor despite his supposed anger and justification when taken away from his last stand and brought onboard
- Killed several top ranking legion officers for no reason
- Let his legion install their own ghetto chinacast Butcher Nails

Mess around with the pink color in this https://www.sessions.edu/color-calculator/.
Pic related is triadic and complementary colors. These can help you find a hue and saturation that is similar and then you can lighten/darken as you see fit.
The most important thing is that you stay close on the wheel either by being a similar hue (color) or if the colors are literally on the opposite of the wheel like a complementary color (not complimentary) you reduce the saturation of one of the colors so that they get closer on the wheel. Even if you reduce a complemnetary color near to grey it will look colored due to complementary effect when they are seen together.

well for one some Tomb Worlds came online during the Great Crusade, so the error for reanimation protocols is at least 10k years. In 40k they have steadily been activating for about 2k years and the Imperium has only officially recognised them for 200 years or less. The Silent King isn't exactly 'returning' now, he did so some time before the indomitus era and met Dante of the Blood Angels regarding the Tyranids. I would suspect you can therefore bank on him having been back in the galaxy since at least the latest hive fleet invasion namely Leviathan in 997 but maybe since Behemoth in 756.

depends on how fancy of a base you want. if you glue first, then you're limited to technical paint, e.g. crackle paints. if you do the base separately with cork, sand, pebbles, etc. then you need to pin the finished models to the finished base.

That's not a bad idea for the anon to experiment with different bedrolls. When I was doing my soviet gobbos, I did the bed rolls and packs in different colors myself, keeping to general color theme of the army with: Zandri, Nurgle Green, and Screaming Skull being common choices. It's easy to shade down into desired color from those as base with select washes and/or layering/dry brushing another color afterwards. Stuff like mixing screaming skull with tallarn desert comes to a nice darker shade for a base too.

Pretty sure you can have any paint scheme as long as you make it clear before the game (or tournament) starts what each detachment belongs to.

Uniforms themselves? From what I read from military anons here... uniform shades tend to differ even in same groups just because of the printing process alone, so no not a bad idea to experiment and have slightly different shades so long as it stays within same theme.
As for thinning, just keep painting until you get it right. It's pure practice. I think you're fine as you are, just keep painting and you'll find yourself getting better instinctively. Really only way to speed up is by experimenting with different paint types, techniques, and just doing it on daily/weekly basis.

People really only know the marine colors, cadians, and maybe an eldar faction.

The Witches of Medrengard are a coven of hereteks formed in the Iron Warriors slave pits, earning their freedom when an abducted crone taught them to merge their bodies with a knight's machine spirit. They broke out with a porphyrion and marched it to the warsmith's fortress with the intent of making a final stand, but he just laughed, impressed with their gumption, and offered them a place alongside his warband.

Are heavy bolter razorbacks a waste of time if you don't intend on transporting infantry with them (the squad they would be "for" are infiltrating scouts)? If you think they are, what else can I take that would cost about the same and have some staying power? As it is my Libby dread looks like he'll soak up every anti-vehicle shot my enemy has turn 1.
