Yeah I was thinking about something like Gretchin, where their pitiful LD of 4 could easily mean more models fleeing than are actually killed by the enemy. If a unit of 30 lost ten Gretch in one turn and you rolled a 4, ten more would run. With the new rules, after the first obligatory fleeing Gretch, you'd probably only lose three or four more.

8th's morale rules make it very possible to have instances where a unit has suffered so many losses that ALL survivors will flee even if you roll a 1. And it's in the nature of hordes to only take heavy casualties instead of just being chipped away at. Overall the new rule is a horde buff. 'But you could roll astronomically garbage' applies to anything.

Reposting the info bits from the Gav minwar gaming interview for the guys that missed the link :

>Gav Thorpe was always a narrative comes first guy. He sees the games as a vehicle to tell stories and explore the setting.

>Among Gav Thorpe's old concept writings was a 40K lizard-like race called the Sashell (correct spelling?). The basic ideas from that race became the T'au such as the 5 elemental caste system. The Sashell were basically Lizardmen in SPACE with a dash of ripped off Aeldari aspect warrior concepts.

>The first book that Gav worked on in terms of design was the original Sister of Battle codex. He wrote the lore of the Age of Apostasy, Vandire Goge, and daughters of the Emperor based on quotes and lines that were handed to him by Rick Priestley. For example, he had to invent the lore and the scene that led up to Vandire's final quote.

>We don't know really what happened to Alicia Dominica in the Emperor's throne room or what she saw, but according to Gav's headcanon seeing the suffering of the Emperor made her realise how corrupt and decadent the Imperial Church had become. Opening her eyes to the fact that she wasn't serving the Emperor but a villain.

>The Lost Primarchs/legions mystery will never be revealed because ultimately GW never thought of answers to it and never will. The mystery according to Gav is more interesting than any answer they can come up with. GW over the years, like in the HH series, had written in hints and conjecture but they lead to nothing since there is no answer. The idea of the Lost Legions was invented by Rick-P as a reference to the Lost Roman Legions.

>The desire to fill the gaps in the setting and be precise is understandable but too much of it can rob the writers, the players, designers, etc of the ability to create their own stuff. The purpose of the setting is to set up things and get them in motion. It's up for the players and writers to take off where the existing material ends and be creative.

what are you talking about, vehicle costs are going to go up substantially for being able to shoot in melee and the LoS changes massively fuck with Tau, it's kinda gay they stay exactly as-is with overwatch but I think at best they'll stay about where they are in the meta

>Gav Thorpe was asked about the return of Dorn. Gav said "he is just a hand, isn't he?". He went on to say that having too much of it (Primarchs returning and the such) would cause so drastic of a change that 40K would cease being 40K. This stuff is one of the mysteries of the setting that people in-verse and out-verse can choose to believe in. For example, Logan Grimnar in "Ashes of Prospero" hopes for the return of Leman Russ. It's pointed out to him that his Primarch said he will return in the End Times/Wolf Time. He isn't coming back to help Space Wolves out. He is coming back to die with them. So maybe stop wishing for that, Logan?!

>A Warham writers should plant 3 more mysteries for each one he solves. Always maintain the feel of mystery, exploration, scale.

>In Gav Thorpe's younger days , the space marine chapter that he painted and gamed with was called the Celestial Lions. When he became a GW designer he wrote their name in the list of chapters involved in the third war of Armageddon. Alan Merrett who was the IP overlord at the time saw their name in the list said what a rubbish name. Gav responded to Alan's statement by pointing at the Space Wolves. Eventually, some other writers picked up the name Celestial Lions and fleshed them out and gave them their own colour scheme. Then came ADB to expand on it. Gav was like "Hey, that's my chapter!".

>Jervis Johnson based the Cypher character on three characters. Aragorn, the man with no name, and a third character that Gav unfortunately couldn't remember in the interview. Like the Lost Legions bit, there is no answer for the Cypher mystery. He doubts that GW will ever spill it out. Though, Gav Thorpe did wink when he jokingly said Cypher wants to go to the Emperor and stab him. Another thing he added is that the contradictions surrounding the Cypher character are a feature and not a bug.

>The central idea behind Gav's upcoming "Indomintus" is based on the comic writer's quote that's paraphrased like this "How can you hurt superman? You attack him emotionally". Space Marines are fearless and powerful. The only way to really hurt him is to attack their faith and purpose. In the novel, a ship of Space Marines faces the moral dilemma of either facing the rising Necron threat emerging from the Pariah Nexus in order to save the hapless Imperial citizens or flee back to warn the rest of the Crusade.

>On the Necron side of "Indomintus" there are Necron characters that have their own agendas that might conflict with each other.

>Gav's favourite marine chapter is the Blood Angels because embody a concept that he likes which is the flawed hero.

>In case you are wondering why only four marine chapters (Ultramarines, Space Wolves, Blood Angels, and Dark Angels) get the major focus and the codexes while others like the Imperial Fists don't, it's because these fours represent four core ideas. The Ultramarines represent orthodoxy, while the Space Wolves represent unorthodoxy. The Dark Angels are physically pure but flawed in spirit, while the Blood Angels are spiritually pure but flawed physically.

>The Dark Angel authored their own problems since they can came up with a lie and then spent 10K years making up further lies to hide their original lie. Now what's going get them in trouble with the Imperium is not the first lie, it's the 10K years of lies.

>Gav was asked who would win in a fight, Leman Russ or Horus? Gav said that Horus as the avatar of the Chaos Gods cannot be fought by anyone except the Emperor. As for Horus before his fall, well, Horus is a superb fighter however he was a superb commander more than anything else. He would never let himself be in a position of disadvantage versus Russ. Russ would find the Mournival and the entirety of the Luna Wolves/Sons of Horus between him and Horus. So this is not a question that Horus will not let be answered.

>-Gav was asked who would win in a royal rumble between the Primarchs. Here is what he said :

-The Khan would be the one doing the weird stuff like getting thrown from the top rope and then bouncing off the railing back into the ring or landing on the announcer table.

-Curze would be hanging out in the corner being snide over the whole thing

-In the other corner Guilliman would be directing three Primarchs to throw Horus off the rope. But then somebody would turn on Guilliman and throw him off the top rope, most likely Dorn.

-Vulkan and Mortarion will be the tankiest, Enduring beating that comes their way

-Ultimately, the royal rumble will be decided by whoever gets the jump on who

When I was starting the hobby we played a small (1k pts) 2vs2 game to learn the rules. We were three newbie and one veteran. We determined the teams at random and ai ended up on the veteran's team. During a charge phase one of the player on the opposing team declared a charge against a group of my characters and the veteran texted me "don't say anything, he didn't declare a multi charge so he can only fight one character". I was such a shitty thing to do. I told him we expected him to teach us the game not use are inexperience against us and explained to my friend his mistake and allowed him to multicharge me.

The article says tau are going to be faster than ever. How? If anything.

you are, you've been looking at it so long that you've convinced yourself you like it. You wouldn't feel the need to justify it as "classic basing" when it's not. It also doesn't gel with your "I'm just lazy" excuse when just painting the base green is easier. You'll never improve if you don't learn that what you've done isn't always the best and could be better.

They are going to be pretty good. They overall got a lot better, improvements to dreadnoughts, Terminators, and overall every unit. Strats like WR of 1-3 fail (Transhuman in Custodes), the ignore up to -2 AP for terminators, the double rapid fire (making the Terminators also good, both versions, one being a CHARACTER murder machine and the other an overall murder machine (rapid fire 4 S5/-1/1 is no joke)). The Shield Hosts rules are a bit let down, was expecting something more in the line of the SM chapters rules, instead is just a relic (only a few are worth taking), warlord trait (not that impressive, though since you can also place WT in non-Warlords, some have their uses) and a strats, which aren't that impressive (the best one was to use Custodes Infantry or Dreads as shield drones). The Dread Host strat can be good with a Dreadnought with the 1 CP +1 A and RR charges, since you will be able to re-roll the 3 dices before droping 1.
With the new rules of the Hit roll that can only get -1 or +1, Sagittarum got a lot better, since you can advance, and shoot both weapons, while only receiving -1 to hit.
In the 9th they will be amazing at staying on objectives, since their defense was buffed by the new strats, while thing like Terminators will be able to cause mayhem in the enemy's backline.
I'm hoping to see how the Custodes Dreads will work out, specially the Telemon, the poor bastard that got it's main job robbed from him, out of so many unecessary nerfs.

I desperately want to make them all basic weapons but I am exactly one body short of doing that and my autism wont be satisfied either way. The best I can do is 19 regular marines, and the odd men out are 1 plasma gun, 1 autocannon, and the shadowspear champ with chainaxe and plasma pistol.

> You can also look at other places like the face mask where again the detail is being eaten by thick paint or the scope of the rifle where the edges are rounding from the paint instead of being sharp.
yeah it's not super sharp, but that's partly due to lighting, and partly due to the paintjob in those areas being kind of flat, there's more reasons than paint being thick for why flatness can occur, if you painted you'd know.
>you also have visible moldlines
yeah I got the mini from warhammer conquest, the plastic isn't like regular, it's kind of soft and was tricky to get all the moldlines around the helmet, but I got most of them

No, you're just in denial. Every criticism leveled you go out of your way to handwave or otherwise ignore and then say "bro why can't you just criticize me". Given how completely sincere you seem to be this might not be a joke and you may actually have 0 self awareness. You want to have any excuse so you don't have to face the fact that you did not paint your model well. You don't even know what's being criticize apparently. You have a huge moldline on the arm that apparently you don't see. The metallics on your gun have the paint underneath showing through. You apparently can't see any of this, or if you do you'll come up with something like "it's just a troop bro I'm not going to put any effort lmfao". Herecs a thought, if you aren't going tl put in amy effort why are you going to spend so much energy trying to defend your shit when someone calls it shit?

>Every criticism leveled you go out of your way to handwave or otherwise ignore

What annoys you is that I won't accept every verbal beatdown you throw my way and will actually respond where you're either in the wrong or are just blatantly making shit up. You still haven't shown me any brushstrokes. You also make vague statements about the paintjob so you can pretend you were talking about something else entirely when I correct you on it, it's pretty pathetic that you'll go so out of your way to move the goalposts every time I debunk your argument. I never said anything about his minis, only his basing, I even said his painting was good, so why are you bringing me up on my mini painting and not my basing work when that's not even what's being criticized. Also most of what you're criticizing me for he is equally guilty of, and he's the one acting above criticism. Maybe I wouldn't handwave so much if you were actually bringing up fair points and not whatever tiny flaw you can find to make a mountain out of a molehill from. If you're such an expert on painting, then show me some of your work and practice what you preach.
