Remove the concept of places that aren't terrain. That every single milimeter of the board should have a special effect. Flat ground giving movement bonuses, rough terrain slowing certain units down, cover being multiple levels of strength depending on if its small, medium or huge cover. Also probably get rid of TLOS.

Why do people act as if getting out of GW stores is getting them "out of the hobby" or "ywnbm" shit?

Do they not realise that in olden days, using proxies, or off-brand models, making homebrew rules, wasn't just day to day, but literally even encouraged by GW(minus the off-brand stuff)?

Nobody in the hobby has ever been depending on GW. I even remember that people initially laughed at GWs attempts to make the hobby GW store centric. Now it seems its everything people remember or see, and actually think that the hobby couldnt exist outside of GW stores.

I miss the days of playing 40k with some nerds in a random LGS and at home. Nowadays it seems its 90% GWstore.

There was a necron player in my store around 2010, he had a head shaped like a martian and the worst acne I've ever seen; I think he was 20 at the time. Not a rude guy or anything, just a little stranger than most of the people there.
Anyway one day he's sitting on the floor with the stores codex, he's got a big pad of paper with him and a pen. He's decided that he's going to copy the entire codex from the first page to the back. He gets like 7 pages in and the GW manager comes over to him and basically says, "Either you put all of the pages in the bin, or I'll have to ban you from the store" the martian looked like a deer in headlights became really stressed out and decided to leave, his grandmother took him home.

I could be buying a bunch of infinity models, I already have 300 points (full game) of models and I could really diversify my army. Add units which do really unique and fun things and experiment with my lists endlessly for $300.
Instead I'm paying $300 to get like 40 40k plastic miniatures which is like half of the points i'd need to reach the standard 2000 points list in addition to the $200 worth of models I already have, furthermore they're all just bog standard 'troops' that don't actually do anything interesting, but I need to get them to fill out my army.

Nothing too special, the rough idea is a renegade chapter that got turned as part of the Abyssal Crusade; prior to that they considered themselves especially favoured by the Emperor, so after being disabused of that notion they're out to demonstrate the folly of trusting in Big E, the usual stuff

Mechanically I'm planning on just running lots of CSMs and Terminators because I like the models. I've also got Word Bearers so I'm going to keep all the Chaos exclusive stuff (Possessed, Daemon engines, etc) on the WBs but run the evil versions of imperial stuff on the renegades (Terminators, predators, helbrutes etc)

It happened to WHFB and it'll happen to 40k too.
At one point, the actual tabletop will be the "expanded universe" of warhammer. Something that most people don't give a shit about, as games become more and more elaborate.

And its not like GW doesn't deserve their settings being wrestled out of their hands anyway. Incompetent fucks. Does GW even realise how much they're fucking themselves over by giving out video game licenses?
In their heads it's making people join the hobby, but in reality its giving people an excuse not to join it in the first place.

Hey fellas, so I'm one unit away from finally hitting 1000 points in my AdMec army, and I'm trying to find the best unit to top it off so far. Here's what I've got as of now:
Tech priest Dominus, macrostubber/eradication ray
Tech priest Enginseer

Skitarii rangers, x2 snipers
Skitarii vanguard, x2 plasma, enhanced data tether, alpha w/phosphor blast pistol and taser goad
Skitarii vanguard, alpha w/arc maul/pistol
Skitarii rangers, x2 arc rifles, alpha w/arc maul/pistol

Fast attack
Ptexarii Sterilyzors

Heavy support
Kastelan Robots (2, both having phosphor blasters and the 12" flamers)
2 Onager Dunecrawlers. One has Icarus Array and heavy stubber, other has neutron laser

Skorpius Dunerider

I'm thinking of grabbing another one of the new units again, if I do it'd be sulphurhounds to support the vanguard in my transport, maybe Sicarians?

Fundamentally, guns and long range stuff are at total odds with everything interesting about space marines. IG and Tau show what a ranged focused army looks like and its not super strong super fast super armored dudes. Even if they aren't melee troopers, space marines shine best in the thick of it, up close and personal. The old Rapid Fire rules encouraged them to move up to close range, which was a great idea.

>Blood Angels
Jump pack specialists, mostly about rip and tear with little focus on shooting.
>Space Wolves
More of a combined arms approach, great melee characters and special units rather than something for everyone, have some good dedicated shooty units. Probably the guiltiest of overlap with BA.

Mind you, this all results from trying to give every fucking Marine chapter their own snowflake niche when there are entire armies languishing, so they're bound to run into redundancies.

Absolute worst one that I still think about has to be this kid maybe 5 or 6 years ago. He was maybe around 10 with his shitty painted space marines but god damn he was having a ball. Every roll of the dice, every time he got to think about what he wanted to do, every time he took models off the table he was excited. His dad on the other hand was a massive faggot. Imagine "that dad" that screams at his kid during a little league game because his kid missed fielding a ball or struck out, and you know exactly what he was. Short cut hair, oakleys, polo shirt with none of the buttons on the collar done up, cargo shorts, and dad sandals. Dude just didn't want to be there, was huffing and fuming the whole time. Game ends and the kid ended up losing on points and is packing up when his dad comes over and just starts sweeping his minis off the table into a cardboard box. Kid was asking him to please be careful that they'll break and the dad just lost it, started screaming at the kid. Shit like, "they look like shit anyway and you have no fucking talent, you spent all that time and you can't even fucking win at this stupid fucking game, you have no talent or drive or ambition, your brothers never had this problem why are you so fucked up!?" Kid started to cry which of course makes the dad madder, grabbed the kids arm and pulled him out of the store, don't think he even got to put all of his models away and left some on the table. We never saw the kid or his dad again.

Remind me, if I give a HQ <Exalted Possession> (which gives them the POSSESSED and DAEMON keywords) and a Mark (say, Slaanesh) does that technically mean they're a SLAANESH DAEMON for rules purposes (eg. Daemonic Loci)?

Primaris are new to 8th as well and look at them

They're in the same book as the major character and Imperium factions. Death Guard will get fucked over like GSC and Tyranids did in their PAs

Primaris also benefit the Space Marine faction which has subfactions which are larger, have their own book AND are 40Ks poster child.
Chaosfags need to stop comparing your faction releases to primaris releases.

>> No.73059615

Most yeah. There's a few that specify they need to have the *faction* keyword DAEMON rather than regular keyword, like producing Loci and getting to use CD stratagems. They do benefit from shit like Herald auras and Loci produced by actual daemon characters though.

I don't really read 40k literature, I just like painting little dudes, so I apologize for this dumb question, but how much agency or free thought does a space marine have? I have trouble envisioning them as people with feelings and opinions outside of "I am a tool of the emperor and I shoot and stab and any thoughts that get in the way of that are to be purged from my mind"

That is a question that varies quite a lot from chapter to chapter and the era of 40k writing. Space Marine by Ian Watson, one of the older works is one of my favorites, which definitely positions them as creative, intelligent and free willed. The thing is whilst space marines have personalities, imaginations, goals and dreams they also have faith and i am not talking about faith in their religion but they have faith in their superiors and in their brothers. Space marines are conditioned to have such strong solidarity with each other that it defines them. When a chapter of space marines goes rogue, it is almost always the entire chapter and why? Because their faith in the emperor is lesser than their faith in their captains, in their brothers.

So its not so much that they mindlessly serve the emperor, its that they put aside all their personal feelings and opinions because of faith in their chapter master. They still have those feelings, they just wake up every morning and choose to put something else first.
