So can we agree that GW has improved their art for 9th edition?

This is probably one of my favorite pieces of 40k art produced recently.

The tone is perfect, the story told by it. Everybody just kind of mingling in this incredible gothic architecture that they've set up as a makeshift rally point, showing a moment of calm in between the fighting. Id like more pieces of art showing marines doing things besides fighting.

It, like most arguments on the internet, basically comes down to thing i like vs thing i dislike. Generally speaking there are enough people wjo have sikilar opinions thaf they are able to create terminology to describe what they like and pejoratives that can be used to insult things they don't like. The problem is once the term begins to be used it's usage begins to mutate, because not everyone in the group will have the exact same opinion, and because others will coopt it. Eventually it gets watered down and becomes even more meaningless than it was at its inception, however it will still see use from people who simply throw out whatever terms are part of the current zeitgeist.

I certainly think so. There's a lot more of the slightly looser, more painterly look to the pieces they've shown that used to be prevalent in the older books.

Not all society, but a significant portion of it. Fear of government keeps order. It's literally an accepted tenet of political theory that the foundation of stable and effective government is a monopoly on violence. Organized religion developed as a unifying and stabilizing force as we developed more complex societies beyond tribal groups and created settlements and a good portion of that and it's benefit anthropologically speaking was based on fear of divine punishment. People conform to the group for fear of ostracization and loneliness or other consequences, which is the root of peer pressure which honestly is the basis of a lot of both small and large scale interactions of groups of humans.

There are arguments to be made for the ability to cultivate loyalty and devotion in others, or create an identity which provides fulfillment, and to be fair those methods are used as well, but a significant portion of social interaction and government is based on fear.

Good work totally missing the point. This statement isn't about FEAR THE MAN, it's an observation that a government has failed if NGO or individual can freely resort to violence as a means to an end.

To make it simpler for you: The fact that you can't go to war on Target if they make you leave for not wearing shoes is not a sign that the government only exist because of fear. The vast majority of people want everyone to agree that violence as a means to an end is unacceptable, and are fine with the government being the only people that can use violence, and there in strictly, legally defined ways.

Most modern governments exist based on the will of the people, with their support, and create a framework wherein most people work without unreasonable interference. They are ugly, stupid things built on compromise and moronic, antiquated traditions that also reflect the fact that many of the people prefer tough talk and simple sounding solutions to people that know what the fuck they are talking about, but they basically function for most people.

What's always noticeable in nu-GW art, is the lack of background and the general blurriness and low detail of everything not in focus, instead of these big pieces where even the back rows were made with attention to detail.

Not to mention, that as long as their artists try to tell everyone that its a digital image, and refuse to actually try to use proper techniques, it'll always look like shit.

The new art has definitely gotten better - a lot of it used to be vague or blurry, which was really bad for making battles feel big or inspiring on 'oh I could paint something like that too.' And I still remember when GW made some awful examples of painting schemes for some splat.

The problem I have is with the rules and profiles. The rules are absolutely simplistic shit. I really, really dislike them. There's no depth (stratagems do not add depth they add video game-esque abilities instead of just having a piece of wargear or a special rule for the squad/character/army itself). The lack of options when building a character or unit is painful too. You can take this or you can take that. Gone is the armoury where you could mix and match which led to /your dudes/. Now, /your dudes/ are just, maybe, a different colour. If that. Everyone paints already established entities. Ultramarines. Dark Angels. Imperial Fists. Iron Warriors. There's no creativity left where you come up with something in the universe. Sure, it has the possibility to be bad but that isn't different from GW's fanfiction.

9th just seems like 8th + 1. If they were going to add in some complexity and customisation I might be excited. If armies were a canvas instead of a fast food menu I might be excited. I love the fluff and the universe. It has so much potential and I love confabulating things for it. When I do that, though, I get an itch to play the game so I take a look at [faction] to see how I can mold my ideas with it. It's a brick wall. That really sucks. Aside from just creating my own rules I'm stuck behind that wall. Most games are Matched pick-up games where you say, "here's my [net]list" and then you roll (and reroll) buckets of dice.

To be fair, they're meant to be painted up in all sorts of colors like heraldry. It's like how the Bretonnian Knights of the Realm are actually pretty boring for similar reasons. It's fun to have a model you're mean to make interesting yourself, rather than getting covered in so much shit you either like it as is or forget about it.

And I will never get why Primaris marines are a better design than this. Equal, maybe, but these marines look damn good to me. That one in front isn't even doing the squat so many people joke about.

I guess it comes from the lack of customization options. Even the basic bitch tactical kit comes with some bits from corvus pattern armor, including the famous beakie helmet. There's also some fancy ranged weapons like plasma guns and flamers. I think you also get some melee weapons for your sergeant too - chainswords, powerfists and the like.

Not sure what the Primaris kit get but the general impression I've gotten is that they don't get much customization options. Instead of a plasma gun, you just get a whole squad of hellblasters.

>> No.73241686

>>73241561
I'd be more welcoming of Primaris if they could take options like that. I understand that in the HH specialists were fine because you had 100 times the marines and they were the main army. It doesn't make sense to do this now when chapters still have around 1000 marines and are often not deployed in chapter strength.

I'm re-reading the Gaunt's Ghosts series these days.
According to Ghostmaker:

Gaunt is 2.20m
Major Gilbear of the Volpone is 2.50m (but from the royal house of Volpone so probably full of gene-enhancement) with nobody raising as much as an eyebrow about that fact
Corbec is taller than Gaunt so i'd put him at 2.30 with muscular mass to boot
Bragg is freaking massive so i'd put him at around 2.40 at least and dwarfing the former in terms of mass
Ezra Ap Nigh is supposed to be super tall and thin, so let's say 2.50 at least, again
Though many ghosts (or any subsequent recruit) aren't as tall (like Rawne for example being slightly shorter than Gaunt), no Ghost is ever described at particularly small in comparison. And even though they're said to all be tall, they're called Gaunt's Ghosts, not Gaunt's Freaks with a Pituitary Gland Syndrom, so they must not be particularly out of place.

And even then, when they see Space Marines (pre-Primaris) they consider them gigantic, so i'm tempted to put them just short of 3m

The 41th millenium is actually shock-full of giant posthumans.
