A stormtalon and a stormraven. I want to get at least another couple talons and another raven, but so far that's the extent of my air force. But if we're counting things that have the fly keyword or an equivilant, then a couple land speeders and like 40 assault marines

I did em.

Basing is always left for bulk painting as usual, but the reasoning for the Servitor colour choices are that they're "assistants" to the specialists associated, only the medical servitor had a medpack added to him.

Any mini that is simultaneously massive enough and fragile enough to collapse under its own weight from the impact would probably have snapped/broken even if you had it in foam. A centimetre of foam just isn't going to reduce the deceleration that much.

Really only going to be an issue with some of the more ridiculously fragile centrepiece models GW produces. 99% of your army would be fine and by using magnets you avoid the routine wear and tear that comes with using a foam case (spikes getting stuck on foam, fragile parts bending/snapping as the push up against the sides) which is a far more likely threat to your minis than the (hopefully) rare occasions you drop your mini case from a great height.

Seriously, be careful with your mini case, if you've got a full army in there it is the financial equivalent of something like a laptop, why wouldn't you be careful as hell with that? I know I am, I can buy a new laptop but my army represents hundreds of hours of painting and modelling.

Not very hard, most of what you need to know is on the dataslate for a model.

Movement has movement
Shooting has balastics skill
Melee has weapon skill etc

The core rule book has a great illustration.

To play you want dice a tape messure and some way to keep track of wounds on multi wound models.

You're free to buy Terrain, make your own or use books and cans.

Disregarding all the other meme evidence for alpha legion primaris, there's precedent for sleeper agents in other legions. Apparently, before the Heresy kicked off, the AL had seeded other legions' recruiting worlds with their own sleeper agents, so that if any survived selection and implantation, they'd have warriors embedded and ready.

Right, so I want to do my Sisters of Battle army as being so crazy obsessed with purity that they find every single IG regiment they end up working alongside as not being faithful enough, and often purge them after a campaign is over or even in the middle of it.

So, to do so, I figured rather than bash them up with some normal trophies, I'd do them with IG stuff, severed heads, trophies, that sort of thing. Rather than being bragging about their conquests, I'd figure it'd be warnings to everyone else, a sort of "Fuck up and you'll end up like this" thing.

However, I'm worried it'll just make them look like a chaos warband or something. Any ideas of how to get the look of them being psychos without them looking like they're just a warband and still an actual sisterhood?

The only answer I can give you as a chaos-fag is to enjoy the hobby aspect more than the game. Customize and personalize your minis, give squad leaders weapons stolen from victories against the imperials, mix chaos bits from AoS kits. New berserkers are a possibility, but kitbashing some of the new chaos marines and some AoS khorne bits can make some great looking berserkers as well. Summoning is awful, having to roll to determine if and how much you can summon in a turn is really hit or miss and the requirement to not move really limits your ability to place the summoned daemons where they would be most helpful. And yes, chaos is best served teaming up with it's various subfactions since none of them have doctrines or anything similar. However, we're a couple months from a new edition, so just focus on working on what you will enjoy rather than what's good. If the rumors about +/- to hit being capped at +/-1 are true then most of chaos's best means of winning are going to be dead and combined with the points changes, the army will be in a state of flux for what's most effective/best. So again, I suggest just finding out how to have the most fun you can with building and painting your chaos dudes

For me, it was shifting focus to daemon engines being the focus, with infantry support as needed. It does make sense lore-wise for CSM to use more vehicles/monsters as shock troops since traitor geneseed is limited as opposed to loyalists where they can just toss primaris into meatgrinders as instead.
The best use of this that I've found was summoning daemon HQs. The have low power level cost for summoning so you only need like a 4 on 2d6 and low point cost. In 9th I'm for sure going to lean towards this more since souping in a whole detachment of daemons is going to cost, while summoning presumably doesn't though it's limited.
