Hey folx. I’m super new to Warhammer but I am super stan for it. I’m though I do have some questions. Is there a way to remove the religious stuff everywhere, I don’t really like so much religious imagery. And also I notice that a lot of designs are very Nazi like. Wouldn’t it be better to get rid of some of that problematic imagery? I like playing as women (I identify as a woman) but Um the Sisters of Battle look too fetishy. Like ok boob armor and skirts? In 2020? Can’t we just put women in armor that’s not so exploitive and make more women leaders as characters? I noticed there aren’t any Primark women. I know they were written back in the 70s but um shouldn’t at least half of them be women? Ok cool. If anybody wants I’ve started a petition and you can add #fixwarhammer to your tweets. uWu

They are a great melee army but the problem is they start to collapse against weapons with any AP and multi damage. Spamming excess dice at them will also hurt them. Mortal wounds neuter the army and make their supposed toughness non-existent. To a degree they are almost a glass cannon army disguised as a tanky army. The current meta and rules do not favor them at all and the only way to hope to mitigate their weaknesses is to buy overpriced Forge World models. When you play Custodes, you are either going to stomp face or get your shit pushed in. There is hardly a middle ground.

For the anon who bought blue stuff for beakies here's my terrible first attempt with recasting SoB heads. Make sure to check /wip/ for their guide on recasting with blue stuff and legos.
I didn't have legos or a clamp so I eyeballed the mold and used some textbooks to press the mold. Most evident is the large amount of excess green stuff and squished heads as I didn't allow them to cure long enough.
For next time I'll pick up some epoxy putty and materials to build a container to form my mold. I'll also make sure to use far less putty/green stuff and let it cure entirely.
Take these abominations as a warning, don't be a dummy like me.

Outside of the opening line (referring to the fact that most of them have to travel around and raid like pirates, rather than pirate aesthetic): it clearly states that they are not a klan and are just collective of orks who either didn't have a klan, lost their klan, or got kicked out of their klan after the opening paragraph.
Maybe it's GW's fault for constantly pushing a pirate motif along with them in order to help visualize them, but they are "your dudes" for orks if you don't want klans.

That isn't very much too work with for them to be honest with you Anon. Who is usually your warlord, if it is Trajan, I would suggest you make it the bike captain and give him the relic/WT to get a 3++ and the built in -1 to hit for people against him. He can move quickly and wreck hordes. There is a stratagem you can use to make Trajan your warlord if the bike man dies. Castling works well for Custodes with a Vex and Trajan if you have a Telemon or a couple tanks. Those two give you a built in -1 to hit for everything within 6 inches and you get to re-roll ones due to Trajan.

Played a tech-priestess that sought to create the perfect plasma technology in a Dark Heresy 2e game. She hid it well, but did consort with Tzeenchian &
slaaneshi daemons. The bird fucker screwed her over so she made a pact with a daemonette.

I'd been considering getting the SC Vanguard box just to buy the shapeway zaku II bits and converting them. They are a small elite army anyway, so it won't cost me as much to do this fun little project compared to what orks overall have cost me so far in all of their silliness.

You wouldn't happen to have a scion nearby, would you? I'd like a scale for converting an Inquisitor with medieval-themed plate armor. I'm using a skitari vanguard helm & a scion torso so far. I feel they might be too thing, but perhaps I could layer some greenstuff.

I kind of want the firepower of the storm surge, but without the stupid fucking walker.

I'd use the storm surges body to bulk up the hull, and put it on a flying stand.

Orcas aren't made anymore and if I was going to spend that money i'd just buy a tigershark off forgeworld.

The storm surge and devilfish are both cheap second hand from some one nearby. Its going to be a kitbash bigger than i've ever attempted before however.

While I'll build an army based off of asthetics, I always make sure it can work well on the table top.

CAACs who claim they're doing loreful fluffy armies to justify the fact that they're actually shit at the game are disgusting. Especially when their armies are just a bunch of random shit mashed together and not even following a theme. you know the people who's armies look like a picture from an army book with one of every type of units with no real cohesive theme or narrative.

They're the fucking worst. boring to play, boring to look at, boring boring boring.

Give me a tourney fag any day, at least the game would be challenging.

That said Narrative armies with solid themes and great asthetics are peak hobby.

What if the theme is "generalist force that covers all its bases?"

>> No.73035924

>>73035870
you can cover all your bases with sticking to a theme, and a theme can be model based or narrative/fluff based with a variety of models, but there has to be a rhyme or reason why models are taken and working together. Like sure scouts, terminators and bikers can all fit in an army who's theme is being a vanguard and it works since the scouts would be forward deployed, the bikes riding out as out riders and the terminators teleport in, but that army better as fuck not have a thunderfire cannon since who the fuck is scouting with slow artillery
