You could just set up a Combat Patrol league or something, I know around these parts kill team leagues used to be kind of popular so Im sure something similar would also be fairly popular.

Personally I'll probably keep playing 2000pts especially now that with the points going up its going to be closer to today's 1500-1750pts which is my favorite point level since you can take all the shit you want but its limited enough that there arent a lot of redundancies and you have to make some choices.

Long range shooting makes for a less exciting game, and especially in low points values where you don't have many redundant units, it turns the game into hiding in cover and blasting anything that exposes itself.

Tyranids are in a weird spot where they’re both the most and least threatening thing in the universe. All the Hive Fleets are just a vanguard and they’ve devoured thousands of worlds... so what the main body of the tyranids arrive and everyone else dies?

The Tyranid threat really can’t be resolved in a satisfying way because they’ll either steamroll the entire galaxy and kill everyone, or the Necrons or Chaos will pull something out of their ass to delete the main body of the Tyranids.

their problem is not in the metanarrative, they're supposed to be one of the nihilistic ends for the galaxy, but in the fact that they never appear if not by posing an ultimatum despite there being plenty of room for smaller swarms to enact actions and campaigns that don't immediately involve the destruction of a planet

Every time some pozzed shit in Warhammer happens about 60% of you people will find a way to excuse it or wrap it up as "I just want to game!","well, as long as the rules get better...", "haha, well here's this other minor detail with their armor that's the REAL problem!", etc.

Everyone here right now universally decries the idea female space marines, but in 5 years when it actually happens the same 60%+ will just excuse it and bitch about the 'polfags being loud'.

It WILL have to happen. The dam cannot hold forever. It has to be the biggest brewing shitstorm internally at GW, at some point human resources will get involved and lawsuits will be filed over 'an atmosphere of sexist exclusion regarding our work' if they don't just straight up bend the knee before it gets that far.

I have unpopular opinions about Tau. Firstly, they do fit the setting. The idea that their some anime interloper faction was always autistic nonsense. They add texture to the setting as a genuinely alien force from the Imperium. The idea of a small but extremely powerful alien faction is interesting. The primary problem with Tau is that they have always been awful to play against, but the lore is fine.

Even more unpopular opinion: Orks are the last xenos faction that should get new shit because they don't need anything. A third of Craftworld Eldar's range is trapped in Finecast hell. Tyranids have been bullied by Crud and haven't even got a Lord of War choice in their Codex. Dark Eldar need their lieutenant-size HQ choices back. Harlequins are owed a new unit. Tau both need and deserve a major model release more than Orks. Genestealer Cults are fine.

In my personal opinion, 7ths base ruleset is actually pretty great, but what ruined it where powercreep/brokenness of specific codexes and units, battalions replacing/ruining an already decent armybuilding system.
Also, there were a few special rules that were pretty busted (Invisibility psychic powers; some armies having widespread access to DELETE weapons, Superheavy Walkers getting insane rules including instant model removal stomps to push the new Knight kits).

The thing is, I've been thinking about getting into 30k lately, and from what I've seen and played its actually a ton of fun; the 30k rulebook uses the 7th edition rules but with some good tweaks (removal of invisibility, for example) and more balanced army lists.

There's only one boss, but there is a schism in the leadership of my kult of speed.

You've got Warboss Badtredd, madcap warbiker for whom the only way for an Ork to properly live is in the seat of a vehicle flying at breakneck speeds - most of the boyz mobs and speed freeks agree. His opposite, Big Mek Gogbitz, loves grinding war machines bristling with heavy weaponry and has managed to get most of the Meks and other oddboyz under his thumb. The two are delicately balanced, as Badtredd has to deal with Gogbitz in order to keep himself and his lads on wheels, but if it were to come to a fight, Gogbitz' faction would be hopelessly outnumbered, so the Mek is content to take his maintenance tithes and share of spoils.

Enemy commanders thinking to take advantage of the split leadership end up instead stoking the competitive nature of the two leaders and end up on the receiving end of a brutal one two punch of a lightning fast assault followed by a knockout blow from heavy armor.

'Formations' which were like detachments but they specifically listed which models you had to include in them (usually to either sell a box set, or add some tax of unit nobody was buying) which granted insane bonuses that essentially broke the game. At some point they had formations with free terminators or free transports.

It sucked to play against because of how unbalanced and suck to use because it took away any agency in unity selection.

/mydudes/ live in a crapsack system and are barely holding on so I can run FFG's games in one place or WanG depending on players.

The Knights of Caliban are a DAngle Successor chapter, newly reinforced with Primaris Marines since they parked right the fuck off edge of the galaxy somewhere south of San Leor in a 4 planet system thats constantly dealing with Necrons, Orks, Chaos cults out the ass, Dark Eldar and Genestealer cults. One hiveworld, one forgeworld, moonsized spacehulk that orbits the outer edge of the system and then there's the infested jungle hell of a deathworld the Knights call home.

The basic plantlife is edible, but it's also extremely capable of killing the shit out of you since it's the supersized version of a Venus flytrap. Insert trees that bleed Capsicum and you get the idea on what being a lumberjack is like on this world, the upside is that the animals come pre-seasoned when you cook them.

The animal life ranges from a six legged wolf that makes the dire wolves in GoT look like puppies, upto the equivalent of kaiju that even the imperial knights on the world have a hell of a time dealing with.

The Chapter has a Trio of Fortress monasteries on each of it's two continents.

Aspirants who wish to join the chapter have to make it to one of the three mountaintops that house them. Which means making it through hundreds of miles of hell-jungle with charlie in the trees just waiting for you to blink.

aspirants who make it? Are checked for geneseed compatibility, if they're compatible? they're inducted into the chapter as scouts and their training begins. If not? they get dropped off by shuttle back to their fortified village where they're greeted as heroes. (or moved to a different village, gotta keep the population stable. Any women who make it, get dropped off with the Sisters of The Lady on the next planet over because they could really use women with balls that big.)
