what I don't get is why they didn't just brew up some random marines to follow like the previous 40k comics did. Going with a pre-established character is just going to cause problems for what he can and can't do.

blue is an underrated colour for loyalist marines, but the ideal blue is the darker one on crimson fists

add to that an asymmetrical colour scheme for the right arm, the use of cream on faceplate, pauldrons and knees as backdrop for freehands, the use of full-cream and full-black armour for veterans or heroes (think deathwing or death company), classic designs of yellow and black stripes, white and black checkers, toothed lines, flame patterns and red for focal objects with a preference of dark steel and bronze as metallics to leave silver and gold to very important shit

Everything just favors taking the best shooting unit (commanders) as much as you can. Then take riptides and a bunch of drones to protect both the commanders and the riptides. Taking anything else is just hurting your list. There's no trade offs between units because every unit that is not a commander or a riptide is strictly worse at everything they already do.

Tau could be a cool army focused around quick strikes into enemy territory with high risk (bad at CC) high reward (good at 18" shooting) plays but instead GW cut out all their flavor and made guard but shittier.

They're both a 16% damage increase. Tau commanders are broken because at their current cost their bs2 is "free" in points. And across the whole game HQs options almost universally upgrade in pistols or melee weapons while commanders get to run not one ranged weapon but 4. Compare their options to another "shooty" HQ like a Tech-priest Dominus. They also unbelievably dropped their points since 8th while the other good melee only hqs like SM captains and daemon princes have continually gone up.

I'd like one that I can play games with, but from what I've read, strengths of certain armies change over time.

Swarms sound expensive

The armies you probably don't want to start with are the more fragile low toughnes being less forgiving of mistakes, or ones or that require lots of models because you'll burn out early, probably want to avoid Dark eldar, Tyranids, Harlequins, genestealers, guard and Tau

Orks, death guard, Necron, all the space marines and maybe ad mech all have pretty solid rules, quite tough on the field, easy to grasp, etc.

Eldar/CSM fall into the place of being ok to start with but have wild variety in sculpt age/quality so you will have moments where you like a model but it's just so old and shit you don't want to buy it, also playing a csm legion is more for experienced players who like to convert

There's basically two varieties: core codex Marines and codex-divergent Marines. The former use the Marines Codex and the latter (Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Space Wolves, Grey Knights and Deathwatch) have their own codices with unique units and whatnot. However, there are also six (and a bit) supplements for specific chapters out of codex Marines (Iron Hands, Imperial Fists, Raven Guard, White Scars, Ultramarines and Salamanders) and if you want you can run a successor/homebrew chapter that descends from one of the aforementioned chapters and gets most their rules, so there's a shitton of variety (Iron Hands, Raven Guard and Blood Angels armies play very differently despite having almost all the same units).

he just worked towards his purpose as a primarch, to destroy everything other than the Imperial truth and obedience to the Emperor. Religious fanaticism was obviously the best way to achieve that. Once the Emperor made it clear he was not to be worshipped as a God, what actual right did he have to rule anyway? Especially after he gave control of the military to Horus. Not only that, Lorgar then discovers the Emperor lied about the primordial truth, and that everything Godly about the Emperor is born from it. Now he has forced the Emperor into Godhood, revealed the primordial truth and turned the Imperium into his pre-heresy vision of what it should be. He also made Guilliman shit himself with rage. That's runaway success in my book, and it was all his choice.

No, and the emperor himself straight up told lorgar that his legion was the worst at conquest.

His achievements are too small to list in one post, lorelet.

The emperor not telling his sons about chaos was his biggest mistake. Still, Lorgar should have known that the emperor knew better than he did. Now he is a slave to the chaos gods instead of a servant to the emperor.

He has had success post heresy, but the fact that he fell in the first place shows how much of a fool he was.

yes, fanaticism is the best way to erase former popular perceptions, destroy cultural heritage and instill obedience. It's been shown time and again from Mohammed to Stalin. The WBs were the worst at conquest because they took the time to instill true faith and willing obedience in every planet they conquered, which takes a lot of time compared to getting a half hearted nod from the governor. A lot of the GC was dealing with upstart planets and sectors who rebelled almost as soon as the expedition forces left their sector.

>too small to list in one post

>Should have known that the Emperor knew better than he did
apparently he didn't, that's literally the whole fucking point of the heresy. Lorgar knows loyalty to a hypocrite makes you no less a slave than embracing chaos, which is a real power created by humanity and not a false doctrine like the Imperial Truth.

I don't call a logical choice made with no regrets which gave the individual almost everything they wanted out of it, especially seeing as Lorgar isn't even devoted to one God and is left out of their power games, is 'falling to chaos'.

With the new inquisition rules about being able to add them to any imperial detachment, what do you dudes think about a list with 3 inquisitors, one in each detachment, and each inquisitor has a different ordo, so that the list has one malleus, one hereticus, and one xenos inquisitor?
I wanna run a scions battalion, with a hereticus + a patrol of deathwatch (fluffed/painted as a red hunters Honor guard for my ordo malleus inquisitor) + a patrol or battalion of xenarite-themed mechanicus, led by an ordo xenos inquisitor.
It’s probably not a very efficient list but it seems like it will be fun to play, in theory at least.

Yes, he did know better. His whole plan was to cut off humanity from the warp which isn't exactly easy with billions of religious zealots running around. Again I will admit that note telling the primarchs about chaos was a mistake but for any primarch to assume he knows better than the guy who created them is just plain stupid.

The one in older codexes was black and white because they didn't use colour printers aside from central painting pages. I've got the 3e Necron Dex open in front of me.

primaris: (2/3)(5/6)= .56 wounds at 4ish damage, 1 dead

the math goes on like this. basically what you come down to is you will almost always have an easier time wounding the primaris marine, however he has twice the number of wounds so only when you have double the damage output against him or more is he easier to kill (aka not very often against D1 anti-infantry guns)
the numbers look the same all the way up but it's deceptive, the raw number of wounds is the percent chance that a shot goes through so while a melta gun utterly obliterates a plague marine when it does deal damage, it only has a raw 30% chance of doing so
